I will be on when my copy arrives later in the week hopefully. Can't log into battlelog to add myself to the pistonheads platoon yet. Will do it on Friday.

I'm confused.

In battlelog can you not just invite the online members your platoon to play?
Or just see who is online easily...
Or chat to platoon members...

Are we just expected to add every member of the platoon to our origin friends list manually?

Hopefully i'm missing a trick here!

Look at the member list, Grey border = Offline, Green border = Online, Blue Border = In Game.

I guess I won't be able to access battlelog and join the platoon till my copy of bf3 arrives . If I try to login to battlelog just now I get a message telling me I'm not allowed.

I have an i7 920 at 4ghz, 5870 and 6gb DDR3 running at 1920x1080. I have everything set to high with AA off and low. Runs 60-80fps and looks fantastic. I can max everything out and it runs at 35-45fps which is fine but I prefer it to be silky smooth for multiplayer smile

That's a similar rig to mine. Game runs ad looks great smile

I'll be online tonight with any luck if anyone wants to get a squad going.

Those with access, can you confirm if you can only use your Origin name or can you still create multiple soldiers ala BC2?

Only origin from what I can see. But there is a link in the main bf3 thread that lets you change your origin name.

I seem to have 3 or 4 names (soldier names) on Origin/EA, but only 1 master. Wonder if I can pick one of the sub ones.

Hopefully gamer tag will be Fubes, if not it's Foobes smile

Use this to change your Origin and therefore BF3 soldier name on PC:
