Hey guys!

As some of you may (or may not) know, we have a BF3 platoon called GiantBombSquad. We usually play on weekends.

Now, we (mainly ) have come up with an idea: CrazyNight™! In which we do what the Battlefield series does best: Making crazy shit happen. These CrazyNights™ will take turns with the usual Bombing Runs, both of which will alternate between Tuesdays, Sundays and Saturday. That's where you guys come in - We need suggestions on how to make our CrazyNight™ even more crazy!

So far we have:

  • Sniper only Conquest
  • Jeep races
  • Jet stunts!

The crazier the suggestion the better.

These are gonna happen on our Giant Bomb/Tested server of course, and the first crazy night is TONIGHT! Check the event calendarto see when there's a bombing run and when there's a CrazyNight™

Peace.

Here's a suggestion:

You could have a map with 64 players, everyone just have to use their knife, and they just rush at each other and create one big brawl.

Truck wars

Jeeps with snipers in passenger seat conquest

Everybody play snipers only whilst PieGB launches jets into people

Turn bullet damage off (you can do that right?)

The theme should be "the last GiantBomb-centric BF3 night, before it's overrun with kids from GameSpot telling us all that we're [homophobic slur] [racial slur]s".

It would be cool if you could make it so only 1 person can do bullet damage who if you manage to kill you take that power. I highly doubt that's possible though. Only games with deep multiplayer customization like Halo can do stuff like that

Dodgeball!!

Don't know if this will work in practice, but it sounded awesome in my head.

Both teams lined up in a large open area (i.e. the beach on Gulf of Oman), with a fair distance between them, only RPGs allowed.

If you die, you have to wait until the next round, but you can still respawn and watch the match. (Should probably boost health a bit, so one lucky hit doesn't take out half the team.)

A point is awarded when all the players on one team is eliminated, first to five wins.

This might be a bit hard to pull off, especially if we have randoms joining in mid match.

Obstacle course. In the spirit of giant bombs one team plants C4, claymores and attack the team running the obstacle course with these strategically placed explosives. The main hallway on bazaar would probably be good. Maybe you can have guys with MAVs trying to take out the running team too.

How about a "Jihad Jeep" style match? Get a big open area, one team straps C4s to jeeps and the other grabs a few tanks/Jeeps, and the Tank team tries to dodge the flood of exploding Jeeps for as long as possible? Not sure how you'd just end the match when one side runs out of their tank allotment, but that's the first thing that came to mind.

EOD bot races? Knife fight arena around a central point (the team that eventually takes control wins)?

Good work max! We need more suggestions for tonight.
These are gonna happen on our Giant Bomb server of course, and the first crazy night is schedule for TONIGHT. 

We've been brainstorming in the mIRC chatroom and the duders came up with a bunch:
  • Knives only (knife fights)
  • C4 obstacle course (SwoXx's idea)
  • Conquest Rush - The entire two teams fight over two flags only (Sjupp's idea)
  • Tank warfare - APCs and tanks only.

Note that this will take turns with the bombing runs on either Tuesdays, Saturdays or Sundays of every week. No steady weekly spot, the schedule is dynamic, so just check the event calendar max linked above to see what is when.

Everyone gets 2 minutes to hide around the map, then we all deploy the bots and try to find and kill the enemy.

Copying the ideas I had over from the PC thread

Old West - All players decide on a location and arrange handgun duels, including standing back to back and walking 10 paces.

Last Stand - One team rolls sniper only and has to defend a control point against the other team who can only use the support class.

Recon, Recon, Recon - MAV's only.

So Pro Bro - Before performing any kill, you must do a full spin with your character, because thats what all the cool kids on CoD do.

We should totally launch jeeps! Team that launches the farthest wins! Drop mines under it, set it off with C4 or a grenade and then whoosh!

Or we could launch EOD bots since they go WAY farther, and then the first one to get to it wins a point for their team.

A target range made of Helicopters where you are only allowed to use tanks to take them down? "Drop in the Spot" kind of thing where you have to jump in a circle made out of ammo drops :P?

Yeah I like these. And I also like the idea of Jeeps with a sniper in the 3rd seat (passenger seat) and you have to take one another out whilst driving about. And also the same idea but with helicopters too.

@Sjupp: Wouldn't we just be forcing everyone in to the same point then? It sounds a bit of a cluster fuck, but then if we add a silly gun restriction, clusterfucks are fun.

Had an idea:

Mortar Gauntlet

Running for example down the road on Op Firestorm while being shelled by the rest of the players, whoever makes it the furthest wins.

Maybe 1/3 runners 2/3 mortars to make for 3 heats and everyone gets a go.
