  1. I sure will be, already played the Closed Beta.
  2. Now talk about bringing back memories. Jeez. Havok reappears out of nowhere, and then posts like this make me really, really miss those days. I really hope a few of us from Team [GRNET] can catch up some time soon.
  3. Good, because that means I don't have to waste my time refuting your fabrications. I think you're a bit confused, because when pledging on Kickstarter you are supporting Ground Branch. The funds raised via Kickstarter are funding the game.
  4. Dude, it's pre-alpha. That stuff either isn't in the game yet, or is so broken you can't show it. Most Kickstarters, by the way, only have screenshots, "Concept Art" and a talking head. Most projects don't show nearly as much as BFS has, in game, real time. Games today cost $60, you can get a copy of GB for $15. I spend that for two days of lunch. Takedown didn't take all the money, they got it from different sources (ie. Socom community and Notch followers) and had more media exposure, both good and some bad. When was GB ever going to be free? They NEVER, EVER, EVER said it was going to be a free to play game. It has always been a game you would have to buy. You'll give money to a project that had nothing but words, but one that "just" shows a training level isn't enough. What? Logic disconnect... I didn't pledge for Takedown simply because all he had were words. No engine, no name, no concept images, just words. Haven't we had enough people shoving words in our faces all these years? GB has in game, pre-alpha footage of solid working features, the core of the game. More maps and other content mean jack if those aren't right. What do you expect to see from Takedown when they finally, if ever, reach the same state as GB? You're not going to see a bunch maps all done at pre-alpha. That's not how the process works. Speaking of maps though, John Sonedecker created some some of the best R6 maps ever, and lead the art team for GR. You want good maps, he is THE man for the job. Personally I'd feel more risk of $200k for "startup costs" walking away than $425k that is directly funding development and release, but hey that's just me.

    That was slightly unexpected. Haha. Pretty cool.

    Poser Outting

    As many of the old guard members know, the staff here at Ghostrecon.net has a policy regarding people's claims of military service. We do not appreciate people using our forum to make themselves out to be something they aren't. Some of you may remember the most recent incident with a member named Thor claiming to be a SEAL, he was outted, and is no longer allowed to visit this forum. This goes for anyone who makes similar claims of military service. In the past two days we questioned another individual, SpecOps.Briggs who claimed to be former US Army and Marine Corp. Amongst the numerous things he claimed, one was that he won the Navy Cross in Iraq as a Marine in April of 2004. Only 7 Marines have won the Navy Cross in Iraq since the start of that conflict, needless to say his provided name is not on that list. Not to mention his account of how he won the award read almost the same as a news report of the actual event. Another one of his lofty claims was that he served in the 75th "Mountain", an Army unit that does not exist. Only later on, after being told who the 75th is, did he claim to be a member of the 75th Ranger Regiment. He also claimed to have served in the 82nd Airborne, except he had to be told they were an Army unit, he wasn't sure if they were Marines or not. This is just a sample of what we were told, and what he has said publicly. We asked for information, he provided it, and it did not make any sense. The staff has currently serving, and former service members (including US Army SF, US Army Rangers, US Marines, and USAF) who all agree, something is wrong here. After asking SpecOps.Briggs to explain these inconsistencies, he failed to reply. He sat on the message for 9 hours, did not reply to a second warning, and ignored the third and final request for his clarification. So the staff, including the sites owner Rocky, all agrees, he is no longer welcome at this website. We are serious about this policy. It is sickening to think a person would claim to win the second highest medal of valor in the US military. If you claim to be a service member, and can't back it up if a staff member asks about it, you will be gone. So if anyone is thinking of saying they are USSF, a Ranger, SAS, SBS, whatever, we will ask you about it. -The Ghostrecon.net Staff
  7. Yup. We've been doing the constructive feedback thing for YEARS now. I mean at one point we had a heavily moderated GR 2 PC wishlist thread that was entirely constructive feedback, and any negativity was immediately removed. What has all of that gotten us? Nothing much really.
  8. Hey Ubi here's an idea. Make a better PC game and people might buy them again. The reason their PC sales are down has nothing to do with pirates, it's their poor efforts on this platform, and overhanded DRM that people want nothing to do with. Other developers and publishers have no problem selling good PC games, so enough with the lazy excuse of blaming :pirate:

    BF3: First Impression Release Version

    Only the "Limited Editon" comes with Back to Karkand for free. Either download, or DVD. However I think you could only get the Limited Edition, via download, as a pre-order.

    no news on a PC release date

    It's UBI, they don't follow what the real world calls logic. Its not going to hurt anything to simply say yes or no. If they aren't releasing a PC version, it's not like they are killing sales.

    You mean like this.

    Tried that actually, didn't look so good. I wanted to fix that too, couldn't get it to change though so I moved on to more important stuff. I might go back when all is said and done and try again. Nothing we can do, that's on IPB. The blogs section still is WIP. He and I are some of the few people who actually have uploaded one. Quick edit is the default now, you can always click "Use Full Editor" after quick edit loads. One of those wacky character issues between forum version, an easy fix. IPB seems to think it is... not that I agree with them. Yup. Nope
  16. Until a runaway truck takes down your cable/phone line and your internet goes down. You will really be enjoying your brand new $60 coaster then.
  17. The SP campaigns followed the same plot, but the missions were very different.
  18. Mine as well, the OP clearly brought RSE into the equation. So "we" are NOT talking about the console version either, "we" are talking about a possible RSE involved PC version...

    Guess what? (RSE related)

    Knowing what studio is doing what means a lot actually. There was a major difference between RSE's work, and Paris' work, on GRAW1 and 2. The whole feel of the gameplay was distinctly different. It will weight heavily on my decision to buy or not. Heck, if GRIN was still in the picture, for example, I know I wouldn't be picking it up.
  20. You do know the last Ghost Recon titles RSE worked on supported 16 player coop, right?

    Guess what? (RSE related)

    Why does everything have to be cryptic? It won't hurt anything to say a studio is working on an unannounced title (which EVERYONE knows they are doing and have been doing for 2 years now) or that they are contributing a specific portion of FS.
