    • All occupied Squads will now show up colored blue on the Squad Selection screen

    • Squads that are currently empty will display as white -- if you wish to join an empty Squad, you can choose the first one marked with white text


    -- A detailed look at Squad refinements

    A detailed look at Squad refinements

    Today's PC client patch features numerous tweaks to Squad functionality and is part of our ongoing efforts to make it easier to play with friends and Platoon mates. These changes will also be implemented for consoles when we release the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 updates shortly. Stay tuned for the exact date of the console updates.

    First, we need to look at how joining with Squads and Platoons affects the balance of teams. Initially, servers are commanded to equal out each side, so joining with friends can impact that balance while joining with Platoons further hinders this. As a result we have made some adjustments to the in-game Squad management screen.

    For PC, you are now able to highlight the various Squads and select which one you wish to join by selecting a Squad and then clicking the Join Squad button. Please note that the Squad Privacy option still allows 2 man Squads which, during 64 player sessions, can lead to players with no squad position –- the number of people with no Squads will be shown at the bottom of the Squad selection list.

    After the patch is applied to consoles (in the near future) you will be able to join Squads by cycling through the list and selecting which Squad you wish to join.

    Great, that means they will do another patch to fix that within a day.

    The black screen error is because they bought the Russian version and didn't update the local language files.

    That's good to hear.

    Anyone know, did the game just patch itself automatically?? I read that it was a 500mb download but I don't see anywhere to download and Origin isn't prompting me for an update.

    I think this update is super fishy; it's tripping antivirus now. bf3 is the one passing off screenshots to pb.
    I dunno it just seems fishing I ran through 30 pages or so on the official forums. Some new complaints like pb kicking for failed queries. It's just strange the patch is causing so much chaos yet nothing really changed.

    Meh

    nice link there, we should start spreading, or make a sticky of this....

    this could be the root problem for some of the many crashes going on after the recent update
