    Also the call of quarters thing is pretty inaccurate, cod didn't invent CQC multiplayer.
    If anything, I would call it a rainbow 6 style DLC.
    Except that EA made it clear that they're trying to directly compete with CoD early on by making BF3 a more "all in one" game.

    They said it over and over again before it was released.

    Good thing you're not colorblind.
    Actually i am, that's why i said it does a shit job, it makes it more difficult for me to tell the difference between an enemy and a squad mate, so in order for me to not fuck up like that i leave any squad i'm in.

    Call of Duty: Black Ops had Colourblind Assist, made it so enemies were Red and teammates were Blue, so that was good, normally it was Orange and Green and i often got it mixed up, basically trying to take down friendly Helicopters and that.

    I don't have a problem with Battlefield being a more "all in one" type of game, but only if they can manage to do it right. It's highly difficult to do jack-of-all-trades things like that without doing a lot of things wrong and pleasing nobody.

    Colourblind Assist does not Assist, it does the opposite.

    Ok, then they are also wrong about who "invented" CQC multiplayer too.

    It will be a nice change of pace for people that like close range gun on gun instead long open drawn out tank, heli, jet, APC, vs infantry spam fests.

    I tend to shy away from conquest because everyone and their brothers mother uses the vehicles and hardly ever goes on foot.

    I've always liked rainbow 6 games, I've always liked COD games (well, mw3 is complete shit)
    So I will probably enjoy this DLC, and even if I don't, at least I have some new guns to play with.

    Then we will get the vehicle warfare pack, again, a counter to the CQC DLC.
    It will add more vehicles on the largest maps ever seen.
    And I hope to god they add more than one fucking jeep.
    Operation firestorm, its fucking retarded as shit to have ONE jeep to each side based on how large that map is.

    I would like to see at least 4 transport helis, 10 tanks, 4 jets, 10 jeeps, 2 attack helicopters, and maybe some APC's on each of the vehicle warfare pack.

    That and I can't wait to get out and see what range the maps hold for sniping.

    I want to do some more of this.

    it makes Squad Mates and when they're in Vehicles show up as Orange
    Orange?
    I see lime green with color blind mode on for squad mates.

    Actually i am
    Oh, nevermind.

    I didn't know you were color blind, I'm not.

    Hopefully, in either the CQC DLC or Vehicle DLC, they will improve the base games destruction physics so something like this


    Is easier to do.
    Add more break points, actually, they could do that if they incorporated the newer versions of Physx seen on the GTX 680's...
    But then what would they do with ATi...
    Hmm..

    To be honest i find it harder to tell the difference between colours when colour blind assist is on, it does a shit job, it makes Squad Mates and when they're in Vehicles show up as Orange, i end up trying to kill my Squad Mates and then enemies look like my Squad Mates.
    They work fine for me, everything squadmate related is yellow.

    There are different forms of color blind right?

    Shouldn't game devs (if they have color blind options) make more than one color blind mode?

    I thought I was going to hate playing Recon class because I hate sitting and shooting from a distance all game, but the SKS is freaking amazing.

    I'm beating everybody from range as well as up close. It's like the M16a3 of the Recon class because it succeeds well at every range.

    That's the thing. You don't have to be accurate with it.

    It's so fast, has so little recoil, and a 21 round clip means you just spray it in someone's general direction until they're dead.
    Flash suppressor helps a lot I think.

    Recon is, as the name suggests, a reconnaissance class. You should be spotting things even more than other classes as you are either going to be way out of danger (thus making your shot harder), or using remote spotting devices like the T-UGS.

    Take any recon rifle, remove the scope, instant frontline spotting machine.

    Edited:

    DICE seem to struggle with tweaking balance. It's like they overcompensate for the weapon being too powerful for so long (FAMAS) or too weak for so long (SKS).

    I think they should let us change the colours from a small list, like you can specifically have a colour set for each thing, like some example, Enemies are Red, Teammates are Cyan, Squadmates are Neon Green or Pink to make them stand out, you know stuff like that, rather than just having preset shit that does not help.

    I don't even know why the FAMAS got that nerf honestly. I used it quite a bit and it performed for me exactly like I expected it to.
    Destroyed at close range, pretty good at medium ranges, and got a little more difficult towards long range targets.

    Now you have to be at point blank range pretty much to actually kill anything.
    It doesn't even perform like an assault rifle anymore.

    My answer depends on how much information and how deep you want to go down the rabbit hole.

    Simple answer: No, there are not technical requirements. Just have some videos, some subscribers, and some reoccurring viewers.

    Longer Answer: Yes, You need around 4000 subscribers, half million view hits, a community surrounding your content. Also no copyrighted content. Original content.

    Even longer answer: Depending on what kind of content, you can join a youtube hub network like IGN, TGS, Machinima, etc that will allow you to post game content with the ability to also monetize it. If all you do is stuff with a camera and like skits and stuff, you can get partnership through the normal system. I recommend going with a hub early on, until maybe 10k subs to 15k subs, then break off and look for better hubs or attempt to run on your own with youtube.

    Hubs = they take a cut. But basically allow game content in general, which you basically must have
    On your own = Harder, trickier to manage at first, much more control, and more revenue.

    I've been a partner for 16 months, and I'm looking to migrate to a different network, but that's a basic idea of the structure.

    Do any of your videos have any subtantial viewings? Most of them seem to be under 2000. If I'm not looking in the right place, my bad man.

    If all it takes is uploading 226 videos and getting 1k-2k views each, than getting a YouTube partnership seems like a cake walk

    It's a cake walk if you're in a hub network. Once you're under contract you automatically get partner. By volume, most of my videos are about 1000 views. But I have a couple over 100k, and one over 600k.

    For me, I'm just continuing to post content in general. Staying active.

    No. I'm red-green colour blind, the purpose of colour-blind mode is to make colours more discernible from each other, which it what it does. it doesn't matter what type of colour-blind person you are, colour blind mode makes the important colours on opposing ends of the spectrum so they can't be mistaken for each other no matter which type of colour blind you are.

    That's some impressive shooting, bu it drives me mad how there's a whole bunch of people just having a snipe-fest in a rush game... so useless for the team. Drives me mad when I join a rush game and 50% of the team stick as recon and just do nothing to help win.

    Why does everyone assume that anyone who plays Metro does it for points?

    Does anyone ever stop to think that some people ENJOY Metro??
    I enjoy Metro because I dont feel like a sack of shit when I play that map.

    i.e I get more kills than deaths and a lot of assists

    So I was aiming at some distant tank on, the jav finished locking on, I fired and as the missile went up it hit an enemy attack chopper, which exploded from the hit.

    I find it funny when you fire a Javelin at a tank and he deploys smoke to get the Javelin off him only for it to fail somehow, mine ended up going ahead of where he was going so he practically drove into it, got himself killed aswell, if only he didn't move.
