finding organized games

I hope this is the right place to ask this question.

I've been wanting to play BF in a more tightly knit style instead of its usual pubby nature, and I used to hear a decent amount about the competitive scene of BF3/4 (even saw the ESL LAN tournament). But I have been unable to find any online communities or groups or discord channels where I could participate in something like pugs/scrims. It doesn't just have to be the 5v5 or 8v8 tournament style, yet I also feel playing on squads against essentially a pub community might not be interesting either.


I reckon I am quite late to this aspect of the scene, but I guess it's worth asking.
Where can I go for the experience I am looking for?

Loads of Symthic dudes all play together on a Symthic Teamspeak server (dunno if it's officially the "Team SYM" one or not), probably your best bet if you want organised stuff. Plus they're all awesome :thumbsup:

Well, I tried connecting but I think it is down. I found it here: Team Symthic and Symthic Teamspeak

Any ideas?

It's definitely not down (was on there a little under a month ago), but I don't think that's the IP I was given. Sadly I'm not really in a position to get my old PC out to re-find it (read: re-assemble it). Could try quoting Element, Darktan, or Yugas as they're some of the moderators of it, or PM them? A lot of the core Symthic peoples use it :)

This is the part where I discover that it's some kind of closed system and I'm going to be covertly assassinated because I revealed it's existence :P

I'm sorry but how do I do that? Could you do it for me please?

I feel bad now :(

@elementofprgress
@yugas42

Good question actually that I don't know the answer to. What is the official status of the TS Channel around the forums? In as much as "Am I going to be carted off to the Secret Symthic Gulag for saying that it exists?" :P

@azxx

To basically 'mention' someone else in a thread (it'll pop up in their 'Quotes' bit on the forum front page so they'll be like "Oh hey someone's talking about me, I better investigate") simply put their exact username on it's own line followed by a blank line. Kinda like I've done here for you* :)

Hi, sorry, that summon hasn't fallen on deaf ears. I've been off work for a week and took the time to not look at Symthic quite as much as normal. I have to speak with element first but I should have an answer about the TS thing in a day or two.
