US GMT5 Seeking Gray Haired, (no hair okay), Battlefield Friends!
By older I mean 50 years of age and older.
Why the post?
I'm 58 years of age; I don't have, "friends," who play BFV, (most "real life," friends don't game for that matter). The PSN friends I have are from recent games like Destiny, The Division, Final Fantasy XIV; not Battlefield games. I began playing BF3 on the PS3; did not start console gaming until 2012. I loved it and continue to prefer this form of PVP play.
I've posted multiple times on Battlefield Find a Friend Weekends. In these, I believed it important to disclose my age and my current skill level. I've never received a response; only the usual join our clan thing. These, of course, are not really about squad play as much as a means to add to their ranks while hoping they land a few beast players to squad up with. I'm not whining; I get it!
My eyesight and reflexes are in line with my age; just the way it is. I still play and have met a few folks to squad up from time to time but these are the exception; not the rule. I struggle mightily when running solo; the fun factor is greatly diminished.
There must be other 50-year-old and older; young at heart battlefield players who feel a similar frustration. You love the game but are having trouble with playing solo and don't have a younger gamers friends list. I'm hoping to find similarly aged gamers who can relate to what I'm attempting to say here. Gray Haired Gamers who think the idea of running a full squad of old dudes/dudettes sounds like it might be fun. We may/will struggle from time to time. I am betting that if we stick together; tap into our individual strengths while understanding our weaknesses we can become a decent squad! I'm not talking about the top of the leader board stuff; just fun/solid games with a decent percentage of wins. What say you!?! ****, just communicating with other squad mates facilitates a better and more satisfying experience. If you are like me and PTFO and this idea sounds like something you'd be interested in please shout out.
I play most evenings when not traveling for business. PSN ID is Whiskeyzulu60. (Putting sometime into Division 2 Beta)
Edit: Added Region; thanks to all for the encouragement and guidance!
Edit 2: WOW! Blown away by the BF Community Response here; thank you!
