It's about the fun of playing with each other and the banter!!! that was always more fun for me than the actual game if I'm being honest.
I was just telling brocktoon at work this morning that I'd like BF way more if we had like 8 of us on two squads running in a map. As it is now.. only having 1 other or 2 other friends in a party on a 32 man squad is boring for me. I love playing with my boys... and isnt.
