    A little explanation, from a man with some programming experience:

    I'm thinking they've got a blacklist of sorts. If those words show up in that order, then it activates a kick script. The problem with this is that it doesn't take into account words within words, it only looks for those characters.

    An easy solution would be to simply have the script not activate if it detected any letters in the same group of letters that weren't in the blacklist. However, I'm guessing that the person who coded the plugin isn't very experienced in programming... EA's obviously no better, however, so be thankful they didn't make it official.
    This is basically how the banwords scripts function. They aren't very smart, a computer doesn't understand how words are structured, especially at the basic level chat messages are sent in (String datatypes). So the script is just pulling characters from the Strings sent to the server, looking for combinations of characters that match the combinations the blacklist contains, and treating that like a legitimate result, no matter where it's found.

    Doing it this way does stop people from circumventing the system by encapsulating the banword in another, but it provides a lot of false positives. The only way to fix it is to make it check for banwords as they are stored, ignoring the ones hidden in other words, or just making the banlist more sensible so it doesn't pick up parts of derogatory terms as well.

    You know what would be awesome? If the SOFLAM fooled helis/jets/whatever into thinking they had a missle locked onto them. Either make it do that in addition to the targeting for javelins and whatnot, or just replace it.

    Oh, well I guess I'm dumb. Although all the times I've used it, it just targets them and they just keep doing what they were doing. Because my team is dicks and never carries Javelins.

    They're probably frightened - The only thing that can block the SOFLAM is the ECM jammer and you get no indication of an incoming missile. It's silly to use your flares until you hear the incoming tone, but some people do it early anyway. I've SOFLAM'd a few choppers to make them use their flares early to help my team's chopper out.

    Yeah, it's really annoying, you can the constant tone of being locked on without a break. I've flown entire rounds of Kharg/Firestorm toned and not shot down by infantry once.

    Just look at those stats.

    100 x Combat Efficiency Medals.
    6.7k kills with the M16A3 alone..
    Playing BF3 that much is simply unhealthy, just about playing any game that much is unhealthy.

    Question :
    When a soflam locks onto a target, does the soflam show up on their minimap/screen?

    Sometimes mine get bombarded and I wonder how the hell they knew where to look.

    P.S. A soflam that was just set up, not one that sat there for 5 minutes

    I don't think it shows up on the minimap, but the laser does have quite a lot of glare. If it is looking at you, you can see it from the opposite side of the map. Also, soflams can be designated for lock on by the other team.

    While boosted, the Javelin still has a finite range. the SOFLAM just enables the rockets to keep lock no matter what happens, as long as it retains it's lock.

    There is this unbelievably satisfying Battlefield moment when there is an RPGfag holed up in a building and you can just simply blow the wall behind him and stab him while saying "Surprise motherfucker!" in the chat.

    And there is the unbelievably dissatisfying Battlefield moment when you get kicked right afterwards because of swearing.

    If the patch makes major improvements (as in, redesigned UI, voice chat, the other stuff I've forgotten, etc...) it will be one thing, but if it's just a few bug fixes then I'll agree.

    The game hasn't been out incredibly long. DICE aren't known for shitting out updates at the slightest hint of something being off. They take a fair bit of time with their updates, and it usually is for the better.

    I hope they made FB2 easier to work on for patches, they did mention FB1.5 being awkward as all fuck was the reason BC2 took ages to get updates I think.
