[QUOTE=luck_or_loss;34748992]Vertical speed indicator is very helpful to predict if your near future contains firey explosions But what does the I beam do?[/QUOTE] If I'm not mistaken that's where the rockets will fire at when you're on the move as using the crosshair while on the move won't help.
they need to come out with another expansion type thing with more weapons and assignments for me to do i'm starting to get bored :(

Teamwork seems so nonexistent in this game. Half of your team doesn't squad up, and when they do, they are too busy being a snipe-huur to actually help you. And if they are being useful, they are nowhere near you, so that's some nice teamwork, right? I also feel the class balance is awful. For instance, the recon is so fucking useless. But everyone wants to be a "1337 snoipar ecks dee". Seriously, every time my team loses, we have about 50 snipers, and when we win, our entire team is engineer/assault. The only other BF title I have played is bad company 2, but even in that, all the classes felt useful. The recon had the satchel charges, encouraging players to actually get into the heat of battle instead of crouching in a corner 500 miles away. The only thing that recons are good for are MAV scouting and SOFLAM targeting or whatever. And [I]no one ever fucking uses them.[/I] It seems the only time my team has a soflam is when I use it. And in that case, no engis are using the javel since they are use to 100% of recons being usless snipe-huurs. The engineer and assault are ridiculously useful. Their primary weapons are essentially the best, each offering a decent time to kill, medium accuracy and a sweet ROF. One can revive/heal (which is great with the ticket system) and the other is a tank rapist with the power of the RPG/javelin. Support seems sort of tacked on, like they threw everything at him that they didn't know where to put. The mortar is not very fun to use and is annoying to get killed by. Satchel charges are useless in BF3 because of how CQB the game now is, unlike in BFC2 where it was usually somewhat safe to bet there wouldn't be many enemies nearby while you try to take the tank out. They also feel weaker. The ammo box is useful but not necessary, most people die before using all their mags, and it just promotes grenade launcher/RPG spam. Anyway, why bother resupplying when you can take a fallen comrades kit. Everyone uses the same 8 or so weapons anyway. Support is brought back up with its weapons, but almost all of them are inaccuracy/recoil kings, forcing you to use a bipod if you want to kill fast. But even then, the bipod is such a bad idea because it means that one of the 80 recons on the enemy team will shoot you as you stand perfectly still. Essentially, engi/assault win the game, while support hangs out with them and gets a few assists while the recons sit around being fucking useless as tanks roll over the dicks of everyone else.

6 roadkills in one round. I ran over the same engineer 3 times. [img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/25698984/6roadkills.png[/img]

So did the recent patch actually improve performance? Or did they specifically mean [i]only[/i] 7xxx ATI cards..?
[QUOTE=Shotacon;34749608]So did the recent patch actually improve performance? Or did they specifically mean [i]only[/i] 7xxx ATI cards..?[/QUOTE] I feel I might have gotten a small boost. I'm on a 5xxx.
Is anyone having problems starting up BF3? It'll show up on my tray bar then disappear. I'm not getting any patch notes or anything. Not even campaign works for me. [editline]18th February 2012[/editline] Okay what the hell, I just tried restarting everything. Battlelog, Origin, my computer, and nothing's working. I've been waiting to play BF3 all day and now when I can finally play it's not starting up. Same shit as before, click a server, load, BF3 on the tray pops up then disappears like it's taunting me or something. Battlelog says I'm up to date but apparently you guys are saying there was a patch but I haven't gotten any notification.
M39 with Holo, grip, and laser is awesome. Spray and pray fully automatic guns are nice and get you kills quickly, but I find it a lot more fun with a semi-automatic rifle like on BC2 with the M1 Garand and M14. For me it's good practice to aim carefully, and then when I switch back to fully automatic weapons I do extremely well, barely ever missing my target. When I feel my aiming is becoming sloppy, I just go back to semi automatics for a while and repeat.
[QUOTE=vexx21322;34749659]I feel I might have gotten a small boost. I'm on a 5xxx.[/QUOTE] I can't tell, because the patch seems to have broke the in-game FPS counter.
Solved my problem, my game wouldn't start up because I deleted my injfx_shaders folder. What in the God damn that shouldn't be a problem at all that is some bullpoop. Was talking to live chat trying to solve my problem until I remembered deleting that file. The worker gave me a discount code for my inconvenience, good shit. Now how exactly do I obtain this code
[QUOTE=SPESSMEHREN;34750136]I can't tell, because the patch seems to have broke the in-game FPS counter.[/QUOTE] I don't trust that, I just use fraps.

According to [URL="http://bf3blog.com/2012/02/no-battlefield-3-patch-in-february/"]this post,[/URL] there won't be a patch this month. [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/56RTC.gif[/IMG]
Anyone know a way to increase time I can spend in the air? I've got ECM Jammers for jets, yet I still get locked onto and shot at from 3 separate targets all at once.
Every game I play people blaming their deaths on useless shit. I snipe a guy and he complains that all his team sucks and we need to stop spawn camping. :v:

Hardcore + Oman + Frag Round DAO-12 = Absolute Decimation. I levelled the side of a building and parachuted in, it was the only way in, and just sat there firing frag rounds at peoples feet for a good 15 minutes.
[QUOTE=Ultra Build;34750676]i prefer the qbu-88 for shit like that[/QUOTE] SKS is also pretty awesome. I use ironsights, laser, and grip on that and it's a beast.
updating bad company 2 has to be [h2]THE MOST INFURIATING FUCKING THING ON THE FACE OF THE PLANET[/H2] Literally at FUCKING 99%, "LOL CHECK IF YOUR FILES ARE MISSING"/"FILE NOT FOUND WANNA PLAY THE OLD VERSION" ALL I WANTED WAS TO PLAY SOME GODDAMN FUCKING MULTIPLAYER fuCK [editline]17th February 2012[/editline] I spent fucking 2 hours total waiting for the auto-updater TWICE after it failed the first time, and both times it fucking failed RIGHT NEAR THE VERY FUCKING END
Jesus christ, I went in one server, and THEY HAD A FUCKING DEBATE ABOUT THE REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT RACE. And 2 guys got kicked for that. I played bf3 to get away from politics and i get this.
holy shit you guys, i think bc2 finally updated on the third try. and all i had to do was choose every other process. fucking thank you. [editline]18th February 2012[/editline] close*
Anyone here want to join a server? And, you know, work together?
[QUOTE=Joseph Smith;34743666]Ahem [video=youtube;LrOIgxQ--Tc]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LrOIgxQ--Tc[/video][/QUOTE] This guy probably bails out every time trying to do some trickshot. 400 attempts later he gets awesome video but still has 0 jets kills (not true) Also they are nerfing PKP, AEK, M98, MP7, VAL and P90. I am going to miss PKP's 100% accuracy with bipods. It's an absolute monster of an LMG. Oh and yesterday I won a fight against two snipers with an eod bot :v: Seriously, they were shooting at it with pistols but couldn't destroy it and I eventually got them. Embarrassing for them.
Just thought I'd leave this here. [IMG]http://img824.imageshack.us/img824/2668/bf3f.jpg[/IMG]
