Hello folks,

Kinda late already but, I'm thinking of getting this for the PC. How does Multiplayer with servers, as I've been reading, works? I'm also interested on how often are there games where a lot of people are playing. If there a lot of people playing, do they get grouped up into different units and move as a squad (i.e. Alpha, Bravo Teams)?

Is the game more of an Arcade Shooter than let's say, a milsim Multiplayer?
Thanks

There is a single player mode. I do subjest you play this mode first before playing multiplayer. The shall give you a chance to adapt to the game graphics, guns, etc.

The main part of this game in online multiplayer. There are 64 "32v32" 32 "16v16" etc man servers, gets alittle hairy but fun. The server browser is a webpage "battlelog.com". Personally I don't like it, but I have gotten use to it. Some servers auto squad you, some don't. All depends on the administration settings on that server.

No, this not a arcade shooter. Hope that helps.

Thanks, that clears it up. I'm mainly interested in the 32v32 or 16v16 ones where you are put into a squad.

I'll play the single player first
