Battlelog battlefield 3

History[]

Combining elements of the Battlefield Blog and BFHQ, Battlelog was first announced at E3 2011 and was subsequently made available upon the release of the Battlefield 3 beta, albeit in a beta itself, with the final version releasing on October 25, 2011. It was later heavily updated on June 4th, 2012 to help promote Battlefield Premium. Some of the new features included access to all Premium unlocks, easier access to co-op and multiplayer stats, assignments, leaderboards, unlocks, etc.

On October 4th, 2012, Battlelog included support for Medal of Honor: Warfighter alongside Battlefield 3, sharing Battlelog functions almost identically. The website was given a visual update in May 2013 that made greater use of WebFonts and reorganized the header menu so as to make accessibility easier.

Battlefield 4 marked the release of the website’s third use, labeled as Battlelog 2.0. It was integrated into the game similarly to Battlefield 3 but allows owners of consoles to utilize features that were previously PC exclusive. Many features are not available in real-time on the PS3 and Xbox 360 and the use of a minimap on an external device is not available to them entirely. Battlefield Hardline also uses Battlelog 2.0 and functions in a similar manner. The next two Battlefield-style games from DICE, Star Wars Battlefront and Battlefield 1, notably abandoned Battlelog for in-game UIs instead.

community issues because of my experiences with GTA projects. Now i spend a lot of time with
motorcycling, adventure trips and intensive crossfit training. My big goal are the crossfit games. »

» The lacks of Battlelog’s were filled by BBLog’s functions. I liked the idea of bringing something
fresh and snippy to Battlelog. I think that task of BBLog was completed with utmost sophistication.
After the growth of BBLog, the team got bigger and bigger with an awesome group of backers. I really
enjoyed my time in this team. 🙂 »

whichever way I could. During my time with BBLog, I also found a new hobby which I still tinker with
today — CSS. I had a great time with BBLog, it’s a great project with an even greater community and team

» Better Battlelog has been a really awesome as Battlelog itself was/is sorely lacking in many wonderful
features this plugin boasts. As a graphic designer the clan logo upload feature was the one that hooked
me and later the theme customization that really got me on board. A big thank you to everyone for making
Better Battlelog the amazing product it is. »

» I don’t play games much anymore, but this amazing project has basically changed my life. It all
started
when I was trying to fix a plugin to work with a newer version of BBLog. That sparked my interest in
Javascript and I started learning it and web development in general, which became my hobby and
eventually
turned into a job. The community here has been brilliant and I want to thank everyone for making BBLog
what
it was. »

There where/are much more team members.
Unfortunately there is no detailed information available.
