Re: Bf4 Commander mode

I am confused.   I was unaware of the delay of the IOS commander mode, however read that it can still be accessed on the PC/MAC.  I attempted to find a way to access it however came up fruitless.  Is it (commander mode) available on the pc for a ps3 game, if not when will it be available.  My second question is that i am aware the IOS commander mode is delayed however when is it coming out and will i be able to spectate a game that my friends are playing on it aswell?  Thank you for your time

At first you will have to level up your soldier to rank 10, this will unlock commander mode for you. You can then join a server as commander the same way you would join as a normal player. This is also true for spectator mode. Once you select a server through the server browser in Battlelog, there should be three buttons. One for joining as a soldier, one for commander and a third one for spectator (if commander and spectator slots are available on that server).

 

As far as I know the commander app for tablets does not work with spectator mode, but I could be wrong here.

How does a commander switch teams? There are only options resign.

As far as I'm aware there is no option to switch teams as a commander. You can leave and rejoin the server, however the first commander will always be on the "left" side (if you look at the scoreboard).

These instructions are for joining a PC game using a PC. We want to know whether you can play commander in a PS3 (or PS4 when released) game using battlog via PC (as opposed to remote play on a tablet). I, too, read that this would be possible and want to join my PS3 platoon by playing as their commander from Battlelog on my PC browser.

I'm wondering the same thing.  I don't have an iPad but I own the ps3 game.  Sometime I want to join any server while I'm on my PC and the join button doesn't work.

Yes, Battlefield 4 is required in order to play commander mode.
