Welcome to the new BFO!

Hi everyone,

First of all, welcome to the new site. We’re very excited to have a complete design overhaul along with some new features. You’ll notice a few things are missing, while some things are new.

NewBattlefieldo

The forums are no longer part of the site; however, we’ll be adding in a place where you can discuss anything Battlefield. You can still share your videos, and comment on front page posts in the meantime. We’ll also be going mobile for all of you iOS/Android fans. Another feature we’re excited to move forward with: eSports. We’ll be adding in functionality to promote your events on BATTLEFIELDO, as well as taking part in our competitive adventures.

We’ve also implemented Gravatar, which you use on Battlelog. Whatever email you to sign up with, will need to be your Gravatar email. You can associate mulitple emails with your Gravatar account.

You can login with your old BFO account, but you’ll need to reset your password for security reasons. Remember, we’re adding more content and features. As BF4 launches, head on over to the videos section and submit your video. Once it’s approved, we’ll give it a tweet.

Enjoy the new site! Feel free to ask any questions or comment below.

Happy Birthday JRB!

Baked up a special cake for this Scallywag, yarrr!

It’s the season of Birthday’s here at Battlefieldo and today it’s our very own, JRB’s birthday! He is one of our developers / Administrators on the BFO Staff and is responsible for some amazing contributions to our site . Before BF3′s release he put together the Battlefieldo Widget and he is continuing to brew up some awesomeness behinds the scenes. JRB basically, is da man. Since today is his Birthday, we encourage you to join his Pirate Fan club on Battlelog and spend the day YARRING!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JRB!

DICE Dreamhack Presentation

In the last few hours, we heard news of DICE having a BF3 Presentation on the stage at Dreamhack. We found this video on youtube and it appears as though it is DICE’s presentation from yesterday. Looks like it was the Thunder Run demo with Patrick Bach. Perhaps it is the same thing going on [...]
