    I still think that the A-91 with a 3.4x scope and a laser looks bloody hilarious.

    got a 12 in 1 c4 on wake island earlier today

    One of my c4 was on a full venom, which was flying close to a full Amtrac, which was taking damage. I saw this and detonated. 12 kills, and 2 vehicle destroys, not to mention the 1500 points

    Uh, what the hell's going on and how do I fix it?

    Just wait a bit or play some more games. It does that to me sometimes when it doesn't give me the battlereport sometimes.

    Ok, I've decided to buy a PS3 server once one in West US becomes available. Again, I'm still open to ideas for map rotation and gamemodes.
    Honestly, if most of the players are going to be from here I think squad modes would be the best. Squad rush is great anyways.

    So, my BF3 disc is scratched for my 360. Will it work if I borrow a friends disc and install it to my xbox? My disc can run the game, up until I join a game and am able to spawn. Then it tells me it can't read it and to clean my disc. So if I install the game to my xbox, do I only need the disc to boot it up or what?

    Ever since the new update came out for the Xbox, I've been noticing the decrease in skill people are having. I expect at least half the people on my team to get a K/D ratio above 0.50 or a high score.

    All the matches I have been in contained teammates who did not exceed my expectations. There was only 1 or 2 people who did okay. All the rest did horrid (I saw kill death ratios under 0.2)

    I know someone is going to say "Battlefield is not about Kill Death ratios, it's about winning the game and getting the highest amount of score."

    This is only true in rush. Conquest does require you to kill people to drain their ticket count, but you still need to capture control points.

    Well, after my eyes got used to BF3 again, I seem to be doing pretty much the same but now instead of a heavy barrel on every gun, I now have a flash suppressor on every gun (quick note, the SKS is inaccurate as fuck nuts with the flash suppressor).

    Tanks get fucked hard and fast by javs :/
    Really liking the way the viper handles now, its even more nimble and the 50 point assists for gunner kills is REALLY nice.

    M98B seems to OHK out to longer range in hard core.

    A lot of guns feel less accurate out to range now than post patch... makes me sad because I like a gun that can do short to long range engagements (m16a3+heavy barrel).

    Game was optimized, I can now run everything on completely ultra detail instead of having a few things set to medium.

    Loving the mini map and common rose updates.

    The instant spawn the second the game loads is annoying, I liked the 15~ second wait for everyone to load in and get settled before it just threw you into the game.
    Probably doesn't matter on conquest, but on rush it makes a bit of a difference for slow loaders.

    Not liking the suppression... it is now who ever fires first wins because you can't shoot back for shit once suppressed.
    Really annoying when sniping.

    Beep beep I'm a jeep

    The deaths from small falls hasn't been fixed, even though patch notes say they have.

    Loving how fast jets and parachutes turn now, really odd though, in a jet if you turn as if to go left, but instead turn right (while tilted left) you turn way faster than if you turn right while being tilted right.

    At least for the A-10.

    They still need to fix mav lifting, it still works, and for fucks sake dice, add an actual hit box to the fucking soflam, its impossible to hit.

    This is probably really really really late, but I was away from my computer for the week, so this is my first time playing with the patch and these are the things I noticed.

    They're some good observations, seems to be what I've seen with the patch as well. Going to have to try that jet turning trick and see what's going on there, if it really does turn faster when rolled in the opposite direction to the turn then that's fucked.

    I guess I can try to get a video up of what I mean / test with other jets.

    Tired as all fuck after driving for most of the day.

    I'm surprised I was able to focus on BF3 at all.

    Because like you would find PC to be the ideal way to play games, people see consoles being the ideal way to play games, personally i think console are more ideal since they're optimized, whereas with PC i have to fuck out with that myself and sometimes i really can't be arsed.
    Are consoles optimized when they run 30 fps at a tiny resolution with absolute lowest graphics settings?

    If they ran 60 fps 1920x1080 at even lower graphics settings I would call them optimized.

    Yes you have to pay more than the console to get higher settings and a better framerate with a better resolution on pc but you get what you pay for.

    Those things don't even matter in this case.

    The major difference is the player count limitations.

    Turn aim assist off, or try to play BF3 on PC with a 360 controller.

    Won't work.

    A mouse is WAY more accurate than any controller.

    I doubt that's even disputable.

    I started gaming on the good 'ol N64 with 007 golden eye and such.
    Moved to the gamecube with ghost recon and rainbow 6 games.

    Then I moved to the PC with CS1.6, CSS, and then COD4 then so on so on and I've never been able to play an FPS on console since.

    I used to be able to complete missions on ghost recon on the hardest settings on my GC... but now I can hardly keep myself alive on easy when using a controller.

    Edited:

    There's shit you can do with a controller i'd doubt even possible with a mouse.

    I prefer mouse and keyboard but controllers aren't this impossible to use monstrosity.

    Use plain white toothepaste on the disc, don't let it touch the outer edge or inner ring. Wipe off with wet towel and let it dry naturally.
    I used this method on many discs in the past and it works like a charm.

    Yes mice surpass analog sticks in precision aiming, but that's not what I'm saying. I'm saying analogs surpass keyboards in movement ability.

    controllers being shit.
    Whoa there cowboy. "Being" implies fact, but you're conveying an opinion. You may hate controllers, but they are by no means "shit" by definition.

    Playing FPS with gamepad for me is like using Jets in BF3. Fuckin' IMPOSSIBRU!
    Just can't handle with those analog sticks. When you need to turn quick - it's ridiculously slow, need to move slowly - lightspeed fast.
    But yes, lots of people find it better than M+K.

    Yesterday, I was playing on a Team Deathmatch. My squad leader was setting a great example for the rest of the squad by having 26 deaths and no kills at all. While I, meanwhile, had 42 kills and 28 deaths. Unfortunately the Steam client crashed while playing so I couldn't take a screenshot...
