@  Myelencephalous : (02 September 2014 - 04:26 PM) Titanic be like "I nominate all passengers for the ice bucket challenge"
@  Chilli2627 : (02 September 2014 - 04:19 PM) Played BF4 last night for the first time in over a month... Man I was bad!!
@  Myelencephalous : (02 September 2014 - 03:25 PM) so eat it bitches
@  Myelencephalous : (02 September 2014 - 03:25 PM) Draft Summary: Ideal Unobtanium proved on draft day that when the lights come on, they perform, building a strong team capable of beating anyone on the schedule. They are expected to finish first in BattleStrats Pigskin League with a record of 11-2-0 (1,838 points).
@  Dbl Incertion : (02 September 2014 - 09:53 AM) Hopefully
@  Myelencephalous : (02 September 2014 - 09:49 AM) hopefully too young to ever remember
@  Dbl Incertion : (02 September 2014 - 09:43 AM) The blood brains watching him die I can deal no worries, But - that little girl man super sad for her.
@  Dbl Incertion : (02 September 2014 - 09:42 AM) Bull sh*t truthfully, I may be mildy upset about seeing that but the guy did it when a little girl and her daddy were walking out of the store 10' away. Her screaming is what keeps going through my mind.
@  Dbl Incertion : (02 September 2014 - 09:41 AM) Yea have a few of those. They're real nice once you put in a Apex trigger system. Also make sure the trigger recall has been addressed
@  Myelencephalous : (02 September 2014 - 09:38 AM) just picked up a M&P Shield single stack 9mm for the wife.  REALLY nice
@  Myelencephalous : (02 September 2014 - 09:37 AM) just remove the 1's and carry mm's
@  Dbl Incertion : (02 September 2014 - 09:36 AM) And if that line is busy hope 223-5.56 is available
@  Myelencephalous : (02 September 2014 - 09:35 AM) i dial 1911
@  Dbl Incertion : (02 September 2014 - 09:35 AM) Agreed - In my brief law enforcement days I've seen a murder or two after the fact but not actually witnessed a guy 15 - 20' away blow his head off. Video games do not translate.
@  Myelencephalous : (02 September 2014 - 09:34 AM) wow dbl.  i carry without a ccw.  i've been told by multiple police officers, both active and retired, to do so regardless of the ccw permit.  glad you're ok.
@  cbaker96 : (02 September 2014 - 07:07 AM) Seriously Dbl? Thats scary!
@  twentyONE : (01 September 2014 - 07:11 PM) W.T.F?!
@  Dbl Incertion : (01 September 2014 - 04:45 PM) Strangely our reaction was obviously horrified but what if he pointed his gun at us? Both of us has CCW licenses but had chosen not to carry recently. Will prolly be carrying again for a while.
@  Dbl Incertion : (01 September 2014 - 04:44 PM) Well my friend and I were going to best buy walking up 20' away a guy was sitting on the ground pulled out a gun before we could react shot himself in the head.
@  Myelencephalous : (31 August 2014 - 08:38 AM) The fight begins in a few hours... pick your battles boys, but I will win the WAR!!!
@  Mister Maf : (30 August 2014 - 11:26 PM) Well technically they probably don't since they're supersonic.
@  Myelencephalous : (30 August 2014 - 02:02 PM) there's nothing quite like 6 F/A-18 Hornets zipping around over your head.  I can only imagine what the Iraqis think when THEY see these jets coming in
@  THE RED DRAGON : (30 August 2014 - 09:29 AM) nice....yeah....i've just got a tree
@  DBMgamer : (30 August 2014 - 07:23 AM) yeah Red, seems about everytime this year they do a show outside of Mylencephalous's window at work
@  THE RED DRAGON : (30 August 2014 - 01:11 AM) the jets??
@  cbaker96 : (29 August 2014 - 11:39 AM) Wish I had the Blue Angels out my window!
@  THE RED DRAGON : (29 August 2014 - 12:01 AM) yeah, I was thinking about how close both of them are now also
@  twentyONE : (28 August 2014 - 08:18 PM) vvvvvv Which also probably means that a FarCry delay is incoming...no way will Ubisoft launch 4 games within 1 week (Unity, Rogue, The Crew, FarCry)
@  twentyONE : (28 August 2014 - 12:18 PM) Assassins Creed Unity delayed 2 weeks....Nov 11th now.
@  Myelencephalous : (28 August 2014 - 10:17 AM) watching the Blue Angels out of my office window makes for a much nicer day at work :)
@  Grumpy Joe : (27 August 2014 - 08:04 PM) https://ca.games.yah...-184800567.html
@  Dbl Incertion : (27 August 2014 - 12:55 PM) *PRK
@  Dbl Incertion : (27 August 2014 - 12:55 PM) Maf we needs to play some more Wargame. or something. Getting prepped for lasik though so eyes are gonna be screwie for a bit.
@  Mister Maf : (26 August 2014 - 08:58 PM) That's the specific reason why I don't use my TV with my computer, even though it's a perfect monitor size.
@  Dbl Incertion : (26 August 2014 - 11:03 AM) http://www.forbes.co...artner=yahootix
@  Holmboy : (26 August 2014 - 09:38 AM) Anyone heard from Schism lately? Trying to get him to re-join the BattleStrats Fantasy Football League again this year. Please let me know if anyone is interested, it's free, fun and full of BattleStrats friends. Draft is this Sunday, August 31st at 3pm EDT (21:00 CEST).
@  Holmboy : (26 August 2014 - 09:27 AM) Thanks to Wojo for keeping me up playing Diablo III so I was able to catch the Madden 15 midnight release. Between The Last of Us, Diablo III and Madden 15 I don't know how I'm going to find the time to play everything. Wait...More games are coming too!!??
@  Myelencephalous : (25 August 2014 - 11:51 AM) ISIS hackers took down PSN?  Since when do video gamers have anything to do with politics and international policy???
@  Myelencephalous : (25 August 2014 - 11:48 AM) @twentyONE, yep, playing with BattleStrats can prove futile.  Excessive drinking and talking and flat out not paying attention to what the hell we're doing in the game.  Funny times!
@  wojo10 : (25 August 2014 - 11:41 AM) Okay PS4 Battlestraters, I'm back after a month on the off shift and then vacation.  I've got Dragons Teeth working and I've also picked up Diablo 3.
@  Howard701 : (24 August 2014 - 09:27 AM) did you know that htere is a m1 garand baynote in bfbc2? requirements= rank 50 and 4000 kills with the m1 garand
@  Dbl Incertion : (24 August 2014 - 09:26 AM) http://www.polygon.c...ork-hack-attack
@  Howard701 : (24 August 2014 - 09:17 AM) Can Somebody Help Me with bfbc2???
@  twentyONE : (23 August 2014 - 09:27 AM) Myelencephalous + twentyONE stats for "Battlestrats Friday under the influence":  0 wins 5 losses - K/D combined of 68/100.  See kids, that's why you don't drink/puff or lose focus by chatting about anything other than the task at hand. The lesson here: Fun>>>Winning
@  DBMgamer : (22 August 2014 - 09:04 PM) Yeah, I am a big fan of Datto

- - - INTRODUCTION - - -

This guide is to help all understand how to set up FireTeams. FireTeams (from now on shortened to FT or FTs) are an important part of Brink's Team-play, although you wouldn't know it from any tutorial aspects in the game. They simply don't mention anything on FTs. Even though the process is remarkably simple, because there is no mention of it at all to the player, the system can easily go unnoticed. The key advantage to being in a FT is HUGE!

You can now use in game voice to interact with your teammates! Novel idea huh?


"Public VOIP" (Voice chat with your entire team during a match and everyone pre/post match) is an option in the game, but it has to be manually activated by the server as the option is deactivated by default... The option that is left ON by default is "Fireteam VOIP". So this is the more reliable way of having in-game voice chat...

Exhibit A
Posted Image

But MIND BULL3TS! I want to be able to voice chat with my entire team! Not just my "Fireteam!".... Whats a Fireteam anyway?

Well I have good news for you, person who randomly yelled at me when I was creating this thread... FTs seem to be uncapped as to how many players can be involved. I say this with a little ignorance as the largest FT I have is 5 but I wouldn't imagine them limiting it to anything other than 4 if they were going to limit it at all, since the team max is 8...


First while in a match press ESC to bring up the in game Menu, from there click the Scoreboard Button.

Exhibit B
Posted Image

Once at the Scoreboard screen, highlight the player you want to start a FT With (See Exhibit B for a guide to choosing desirable FTeammates) left click to open that player's menu.

Exhibit C
Posted Image

Once at the Player Menu click the second option entitled " Create fireteam with #Playername# "

Exhibit D
Posted Image
*note I used some image editing trickery to show the entire text of that option, it will scroll the entire length of the message in-game

This will send a Fireteam Invite to that player. Now using your "Fireteam VOIP" key you can voice chat with your FTeammates.

Exhibit E
Posted Image


I also know there is a way to request to join an existing FT. I know this not because I have done it myself, I literally have never seen a FT before I make one, but I have been "petitioned" to join by other players. It pops up as another message to press F1 and you "vote" to let them in. That being said I imagine the process is relatively similar to creating a FT, where the player clicks on a member of the existing FT and clicks something to the effect of "Ask to join Fireteam"...


Also, there was a setting overlooked by the devs for the Volume levels for VOIP in and out, the following commands will fix this issue:

s_volume_voipin_db 0
s_volume_voipout_db 0

These commands can be entered into the console directly during the game or placed before loading the game in your Autoexec.cfg file located here:

*Note If you don't already have one, create a notepad file named Autoexec.cfg there, open with notepad and paste...

Well I think I covered everything. Hope this helps build the teamwork lvl in Public Servers.
