Hi, gonna throw my hat in to the ring here: I've been following the thread and I've been taking on board what's been said etc. and I am now taking it upon myself to inform everyone I come across in the BF3 channel on TS3.
I'm sorry to say though, the number of people I've managed to inform would only total 1!
This is down to a number of issues, the first being timing. Now, I've heard it said that (Mamba, it may have been who mentioned) now isn't the best time to get things rolling in relation to scrims, clan wars etc, due to the proximity of the looming release of BF4. Personally, I've been dismissive of that notion - its a bit off yet, and besides it'll be fun, why not!? At the moment, we only seem to get the same people on TS, which leads me nicely to my next point...
Secondly, there does seem to be a feeling of malaise generally when it comes to activity/participation on the BF3 side of things. Take tonight for example, Stark and I popped into a pub for a few rounds and up pops Skiizzey on the opposing team: no visit on TS3, no attempt to say hello on chat, nothing. I mean we're a clan, a community, right? Long story short, lets freshen things up a little bit, inject some much needed initiative. We got some good players, let's put them to good use. I do concede, it's not always possible given 'real-life' constraints.
That's about all I have to say about that right now.. I would offer this though, how about one of you guys (admin/leader whatever) pick random squads before the meets/practice/training on Friday or whenever, that way there's an element of surprise to it, variety and people who don't usually talk or squad up together get the opportunity to play together, creating a little bit of team/group spirit etc..
Obviously you'd need a good notion of who's going to show up - but that's my pound's worth anyways..
