So I was thinking about the lost blog writings at TGN and decided to see if Google still had them cached. Sure enough they have a few of them! So I decided to move these here. This was originally posted on May 16th, 2013. Enjoy!

So I suppose this is going to be another griping blog about the playing the f***ing objective crowd. My last blog entry was about how we do not use the teamwork that is in Battlefield 3 and yet I see all over the various forums and in-game people shouting PTFO PTFO PTFO like somehow, with the magic of Battlefield, that is going to FORCE (not suggest or ask) people to play a very specific way to meet the needs of others demanding to PTFO!

I understand that people want teamwork and that they want to be a cohesive unit and want to dominate the virtual battlefield that is Battlefield. Also, people want to win and get their points and awards and victory. The problem is, first, teamwork just doesn’t happen and that it has to be something done, and second that I see this PTFO mentality in the strangest ways. I want to give a few examples of when I see this PTFO:

– On small/not full servers: I’m talking a pub server that has about 16 players on it and everyone is being casual. Some people are doing stupid things and chatting in the chat box and just kinda waiting for the server to get more populated. Then some guy comes in and starts running around going on about how “This team sucks!” “PTFO” “Go this way and that way!” The atmosphere on the server is not PTFO. You have to convince half a server to change their mindset and start doing something they probably didn’t want to do to begin with. Just think about this scenario for a moment and I think you will fully get the problem with the PTFO mentality in this instance

With the information of Battlefield 4 on the way and the suggestion threads going rampant I noticed many “more teamwork for BF4” threads. As I read through the threats of how if DICE didn’t bring back that they were not going to buy BF4 and that Battlefield was dead and DICE wants small pox on all of us and our children.

This made me think of the teamwork features that are built into BF3 and how we (as a gamer society) actually don’t use the features we have in the current game. This bugged me so much that I put the following line in my profile:

“We say we want more teamwork things in Battlefield, but we don’t even use what teamwork there is in BF3.”
Sadly I find it to be true and a few commented that they agreed with the statement. The thing is that it was actually true in BF2 and 2142 as well. To sort of prove my point on this go to YouTube and re-watch the video “A Pwned Life” It was such a great skit because it had a lot of truth in it and you can substitute the classes for any of the other Battlefield games.
