Hi everyone, this is the place for ongoing discussion relating to our weekly Battlefield 3 sessions on Thursday evenings.

For anyone new to the game we usually get going around 9pm and where possible try to use our own rented server (searching for SNR should find this).

All are always welcome and usually we'll not have the server set up with DLC enabled to ensure everyone can get on (and because the core game is better) but will from time to time have a night with DLC enabled to allow those with the DLC to actually get some value out of it.

If you want to pop along and join in the fun feel free, the more the merrier/bloodier/funnier/explodier.

If you have any specific requests (relating to the game nights) this is the thread to post them and we'll do our best to accommodate.

This event thread takes over from the separate event threads that were posted on a weekly basis as of 15th November.

Depends on numbers although I think I can say with a fair amount of certainty that AK will not be played and CQ will only be selected if specifically requested.

Yeah, it had. They always seem to do double XP when I can't play. Sonofabitch.

In other news, it looks like my broadband will be up and running on the 21st November. *twitch*

I'm going to see if my internet issues are still persisting on BF3. Havent really tried it since my DIY attempt to fix my lag last week. Will probably be off before 9 pm though.

OK guys and girls, rotation set to standard 1, which is core+karkand.

The server has been set to 24 players (when I logged on last night it was set to 16 for some reason, I thought this bug was fixed!)

And i'll try to get on for around 9pm. See you guys there

So, this week to have a change from the norm we're gonna be doing a bit of co-op trophy hunting for the most part.

I'll be there at the usual time looking to partner up to get that sniping trophy knocked off my list for the platinum.

Thats a good idea. I like the co-op, but Im stuck on the sniper level. I can get right to the embassy then someone runs off inside and game over. Bloody annoying!!

PS
I'll be there too. Suggest we pair up now to avoid confusion. :D

As Halo mentioned elsewhere, this is a good idea and a nice change for folks. :) We shall use the time to do some co-op ourselves - on Borderlands 2 - in the hope that we'll finally complete the story or at least get a step closer to it.

If I wasn't on night shift I would love to do this, only need to do that mission on Hardcore and not get seen. Last two trophies I need :(

Gimme a shout sometime for that one on hardcore, I don't actually think it's any different from the easy difficulty.

The mission itself isn't too difficult, doing it without the enemy alerting each other is just silly though.
