The winner of Thursday night’s Weekly Clan Event and a peak into what we’re getting in March with End Game.
Weekly Clan Event
This week’s clan event went well with a few clan members joining on TeamSpeak to show the enemy team how it’s done. I was only able to make it online around 9:30, so didn’t get too much time to get caught up with everyone else… Still I managed to come away with -19.41 skill the few minutes I was able to play. Dedaciai came in with -47.91, Gr0wzy 30.95, and the congratulations to the winner of tonight’s event, TheGermanR00ster, for coming through with 101.39 skill. He had a great round and really showed the Russians how to play with the AEK-971.
Battlefield 3 -End Game Details
Today some additional details were released regarding the EA/DICE Battlefield 3’s End Game map pack due out in March of this year. A couple of videos were posted that showed the use of these new game modes and some of the excitement we might expect from them.
The first video is a good peak at Battlefield 3 End Game Capture the Flag mode and a couple of the new weapons and vehicles that they bring to the table.
It definitely looks interesting, but I’m honestly wondering if the whole flag run that is in the video is staged or if that is actual gameplay and a real representation of what it will be like. I’m also left wondering how big those CTF servers will get, will they be 16, 32, 48, or 64 man servers and at what point will it be “too much”?
The second video is all about Battlefield 3’s new Air Superiority game mode. It looks to be quite a bit of fun and you actually get a glimpse of one the of capture points in the video above, at the very end. If you are premium member, follow the link below, log in to your Battlelog, and check out the video and let me know what you think about it. At one point, I counted 10 jets on the screen (5 v 5) and it was an epic scene to leave us drooling on.
I’m looking forward to Battlefield 3 End Game now because it looks like it’s going to bring back some of the core Battlefield game modes and go back to the roots of what makes Battlefield, Battlefield. The use of the Frosty2 engine is a real benefit to us players, even though we have our good days and bad days… At the end of the day, it’s still a fun game, and I’d keep playing it if it wasn’t for the next game right around the corner.
There’s also some additional tidbits about the End Game map pack that EA/DICE posted in their blog, titled End Game – First Look, which you can find here: http://blogs.battlefield.com/
That’s all I have for this week, but check back next week when we’ll be discussing next week’s Clan Event challenge and trying to come up with some new ways to make you sweat.
See you on the battlefield, SOLDIER!
