Posted by: Nebuchadnezzar on April 3rd, 2013 @ 4:21PM

Join our Kali Compton Clan/Platoon (65 people!) Get PC VERSION

I'm Nebu7777. You're welcome to join our clan or add me as a friend. All welcome!

BF3 News

  • 3/17 - Troll Army
  • 3/17 - GTA
  • 3/15 - CTF - They give you Capture the Flag but don't give you the template on the OLD maps where it would be actually useful. Instead it's 4 giant land maps and not any cool interior maps or smaller maps. So that's dumb.
  • 3/14 - Nice Kill
  • 3/13 - Motorcycles are ok but the GTA motorcycles have better controls. They put the stupid C130 in some maps too, lame. The graphics look amazing on the new maps.
  • 3/12 - So lame, made us wait until 9a.m. today to play, when everyone is at work.
  • 3/11 - End Game out Tomorrow!

    This movie is so awesome:

  • 3/4 - Battlefield 3's End Game DLC starts rolling out this week

  • 2/14 - Got 12 EOD kills in one round. So funny. That thing sucks to drive.
  • 2/14 - Double EXP event this weekend, active now!
  • 1/31 - So awesome:

  • 1/30 - Battlefield 3 Premium hits 2.9 million subscriptions
  • Woah: Origin has 39 million users
  • 1/29 - Still playing and having fun. I love team death match. It's hilarious.

    It would be my dream to be this good:

  • 12/20 - End Game DLC
  • 1/16 - Indiana Jones Jeep Chase!
  • 1/16 - I've been playing a little.
  • 12/3 - It appears Aftermath is already out. I searched last night and got 0 servers but it told me I have the addon.

    Crossbow looks awesome:

  • 10/18 - I'm busy playing WoW now but after that, back to BF3. New Aftermath Trailer
  • 9/12 - Well so far I'm not impressed. On the large maps your idiot teammates drive off and don't let you in the vehicle for a ride. Some maps/templates you can't spawn on your squad mates. the C130 is annoying as fuck. You kill it and 1 min later it respawns. Some servers set it to instant respawn. On large maps you go places without vehicles, walk for 600 yards and get killed, repeat. I guess we'll see how it turns out. I'm not getting much points at all.
  • 9/11 - Battlefield 3 Premium Edition now $59.99, launches today
  • 9/10 - Armored kill tomorrow!
  • 9/10 - Got my 300 Mortar kill medal. At one point I shot and got 831 points. I think I got 3-5 people. It was a lot of fun.
  • 9/5 - That patch is so bad. It's so buggy. It's crashing me or locking me left and right. I updated my Nvidia drivers, rebooted, repaired install. Etc.
  • 9/4 - New Patch Details - Guess we at least get a patch.
  • 9/4 - Armored Kill Live for PS3, sadly we have to wait until 9/11 ;(

  • 8/29 - New video for premium users here. Video totally rules.
  • 8/27 - Battlefield 3 'Armored Kill' dated, get in line for access September 4 - Yay, Sept 4!
  • 8/24 - Premium Users get 156 hours of double xp (starting tomorrow I think)
  • 8/21 - New Map Movie (click the 16 to get to it and wait for commercial)
  • 8/20 - Best Story: i knife a guy, a guy reses him, i knife the medic, then chase the first guy around and knife him a second time.
  • 8/20 - I started playing Team Death Match, it's pretty fun. It's a mosh pit of killing with no vehicles and lots of knife stabbing. I shot gun people like crazy on them.
  • 8/20 - Finished all the quests/assignments.
  • 8/14 - Battlefield series celebrates 10 year anniversary: over 50 million served
  • 8/14 - Funny Picture - Stack em up
  • 8/9 - They updated profiles with a new loadout tab where you can change your settings via the web.
  • 8/8 - I'm playing every day. It's the best.

    Hilarious

  • 7/13 - Battlefield 3 and Bad Company 2 lead designer David Goldfarb exits DICE
  • 7/13 - Having a great time playing. I got all the gun unlocks and now I'm working on the extremely lame gun camo unlocks (for no reason).
  • 7/2 - Double xp all week for premium.
  • 7/1 - OK I bought premium. There's 3 of us with it so far. I'm not a fan of the new maps. They're just COD maps. But otherwise I'm having fun. It's basically like they added 8 new quests to the game, to get a gun.

    Awesome Mav Support video. That's a cool strategy.

  • Jet vs. Tank
  • 6/30 - Battlefield 3 Sells 15 Million, Prompts EA to Give More Games the “Premium” Treatment
  • 6/30 - Only 1 of 62 clan members have done premium. Funny. Over 800,000 enlisted in Battlefield 3 Premium so far
  • 6/23 - Premium - haha
  • 6/9 - So they now have a product called "SHORTCUTS" which is hacks to get every item in the game. Then they go and include them in all their bundles here.

  • 3/30 - BF3
  • 3/30 - Oh wtf. Now they sell all the unlocks, 119 of them for $40. So I spent 5 months earning them legitly and some asshole buys the same shit for $40.
  • 3/27 - I beat the game! I upgraded every vehicle and class. Now I just need to wait for an expansion.
  • 3/16 - Bringing Battlefield into Close Quarters
  • 3/13 - Battlefield 3's lack of DLC: DICE general manager explains
  • 3/13 - Battlefield 3 gets intimate with 'Close Quarters' screens, trailer
  • 3/13 - 189 hours played. I'm still not sick of it. The last thing I have to upgrade is jets. I still have 3 more upgrades to go. I really suck at jets but I'm getting somewhat better. I discovered a good way to do it is to go in and out of cockpit view.
  • 3/13 - I spent about a week or two working on upgrading the Scout Chopper. I just play one map and play Russian and go for their scout helicopter. I learned the whole map and how to control the chopper pretty well. I still suck at machine gunning guys on foot but oh well. Once I unlocked the laser painter + the guided missile, it's awesome. You can paint any vehicle in the air or ground yourself then fire a guided missile at the. I was getting tons of kills doing that. I wish the scout chopper was on more maps so I could really take advantage of that.
  • 3/7 - Battlefield 3 Getting Three More Expansions

    Must See!

    Old News

  • 2/27 - 179 hours and I'm still not sick of this game. I played Counterstrike for 1-2 years. I played Battlefield 1942 for maybe a year. I put at least a year into Call of Duty games. I totally recommend it! We really need to organize some games more. Maybe pick a time we can all play.
  • 2/27 - Epic Helicopter Dive
  • 2/23 - TONS of upcoming game changes - LONG READ. Changes whole game.
  • 2/18 - Battlefield highlights
  • 2/17 - Anyone else notice there are very few servers now? Maybe people quit playing. I'm only typically seeing 3-5 when before it was like 30-50.
  • Battlefield 3 - Jet C4 Explosion Kill!
  • 2/15 - I play nearly every other day. It's the best. I just maxed out Helicopter. The TV missile is hilarious. My first shot of it I got 2 people in a helicopter. I rule.
  • 2/2 - Battlefield 3 DLC announcement next week

  • 2/1 - I spend all my time on Metro now (non explosive) sniping with the L96. I'm up to 300 kills. It's so fun.
  • 2/1 - Legendary Battlefield 3 Stunt Re-Created On Film
  • 1/30 - Me and my kid had an enjoyable hour playing with maddhatter from Kali Compton. Only it wasn't him. It was just another guy with that name. So funny.

  • 1/20 - Super Battlefield 3
  • 1/19 - Battlefield 3: AN-94 is Amazing? Weapon Review
  • 1/17 - The Battlefield 3 Cheaters Are Coming Here? We Shall Double Our Efforts! - Cheating is starting to get bad.
  • 1/17 - So me and my kid were playing and it put us on separate teams. So we're on Metro and I'm on the top of the escalator killing people and sending their bodies down the stairs. Then he's at the bottom of the stairs on the other team resurrecting them on the monitor right next to me. So funny.
  • 1/14 - Epic LAV Jump
  • 1/13 - Operation Airpain - Looks like you can plant C4. Die then go back and blow it up later.
  • 1/10 - EA using First Amendment to keep helicopters in BF3 - I agree
  • 1/9 - Dual Jet Efficiency
  • 1/4 - Battlefield 3 soliciting feedback for gun attachment tweaks via Reddit thread
  • 1/1 - L96 Review (sniper gun)
  • 1/1 - Battlefield 3 Sniper Assassin Playstyle: Back to Karkand Recon Gameplay - This guy is the best player. I recommend subscribing. I can only dream of being that good.
  • 12/25 - Tried to get BF3 going on my laptop in the worst resolution and settings and in a window and it's still just too lagged to play. Oh well.
  • 12/20 - I was trying to figure out how to get my BF2, BF1943, BF BC2 tags working. I chatted with an EA rep for 45 mins and he finally linked my xbox account. He wanted to know the date of birth of when I created my xbox account. But that's not shown anywhere. I go to Windows Live ID and it's correct. It's weird that EA knows a bunch of info about your Xbox account that even you don't know. The tags still don't work tho.
  • 12/20 - Razer Dog Tag. Expensive $39 mouse pad here.
  • 12/20 - How to get the Veteran Guns. Go to Here and log in with your EA account (not origin account).
  • 12/20 - Free Dog Tag From Alienware
  • 12/18 - Check out This guy. His stats are insane.
  • 12/18 - I started using the level 43 shotgun. I saw the guy above had 5,100 kills with it. I've been doing AWESOME with it. I'm murdering everyone. When I run out of shells I just switch to the G18 which allows me to kill more. In just a few days I'm up to 370 kills with it and 180 with the G18.
  • 12/18 - There were 4 enemy repairing a tank in a line. I ran up to them and killed all 4 in a row. So funny.
  • 12/18 - I'm rambo. I was trying to kill a tank with a jet and I landed it by mistake but I damaged the tank. A guy was out repairing the tank and I killed him and stole his tank. And killed another guy! hahaha.
  • 12/18 - My kid started playing. He killed 3 people with a shotgun and died. I spawned on him killed another 2. Then resurrected him. So funny.
  • 12/18 - We have been doing a bunch of co-op together and unlocked some guns. We can't get past the 3rd mission on normal. We've failed it 10+ times now.
  • 12/18 - I go up to an Amtrack (whatever). I lay on the ground at the point where people pop out of it with the shotgun. I killed 7-9 people one by one as they got out. It was so funny.
  • 12/18 - 120 hours played and level 46 (level 1 colonel). I finally figured out how to fly jets. The key is to slow down to minimum speed (S key) and lock on with air to air missiles. That lets you kill both helicopters and jets. That's what I never figured out. The new hover jets helped me learn that. Then I got 6 kills in one round and the damn game crashed. MF-er.
  • 12/18 - My kid is a ton of fun to play with. We played like 4 hours straight on Saturday. He's level 8 and he went from 2 kills TOTAL in COD to now he kills a ton in this game. I think the violence is ok in this game except for the stabbing kills. I think things he needs to either learn or remember to avoid is yelling when he dies or getting mad or yelling things out. He says "dangit" a lot which is certainly ok but I'm trying to teach him something more friendly to the 4 year old girl. I don't let him play single player or listen to voice chat. I need to figure out how to turn off the chat window, it says hidden but it appears when people say things.
  • 12/15 - I get in a chopper then switch spots to be the gunner. This dumb guy takes off without me and leaves me on the island. So I go come back. He never did. Then I go, I guess I should have just flew you into the ocean. So then the helicopter respawns, I get in. The dumbass gets in as a gunner so I....... flew out to the ocean and killed us both just like I said I would hahahaha.
  • 12/15 - Guys name last night was "majorhole." we had a 1v1 on foot and i go "I shot you in your majorhole."
    we had a 1v1 on foot and i go "I shot you in your majorhole"

  • I'm totally addicted. I can't stop playing it. It's so much fun. It's like a world you're playing in. The maps really have character and there's just so much to do. You got 4 classes to pick + tons of weapons to pick + vehicles to master. Nearly everything can be upgraded. Then the award stuff is motivating too like achievements are in other games.
  • 12/14 - I'm the BEST at the chopper gunner if I ever get a good pilot. I got 20+ kills last night with a good pilot. Then getting back into the chopper again is a challenge. I parachuted out to survive then never was able to get back in another one.
  • 12/14 - The new maps are great. I was in a dune buggy and I got a double kill running two idiots over. FUNNY!
  • 12/14 - Hit max rank (45) but then that levels up to 145 I think.
  • 12/14 - Played co-op with my kid and it was pretty cool. One thing that sucks is the missions have all these stages and if you die, you fail the whole thing and have to start 20 mins worth all over again. One mission lets you both fly the chopper, pretty cool.
  • 12/14 - Hit 50 people in the clan!
  • 12/13 - BF3 Expansion is out - Already, 2 months later haha.
  • 12/13 - Story time. I was in a venom multiple person chopper, this dumb AA kept firing at us. I bailed out and parachuted in. I then sat there behind a giant oil tank doing Javelin missiles at the guy. The 3rd missile I killed him as he was trying to repair the AA. His name was SGT FUCK FACE. haha. I repaired his AA and stole it and took it home. Then our team had two of them. Then the moron starts commenting that our team sucks at AA. I'm like well at least we didn't lose our AA to the other team! haha.
  • Level 44, almost level 45 (max rank but not level).
  • 12/11 - Maxed out AA gun finally. * in AA.
  • 12/11 - Got my kid a copy of BF3 on cyber Monday. But I think they didn't include the expansion. Guess I have to buy that. It's super awesome to play BF3 on two computers side by side. I got lots of points.
  • 12/10 - Another Jet Video
  • 12/9 - Level 42! I was waiting for the shotgun at 43 but they nerfed that. I have 19 hours in the tank, 1 more hour and I get a medal. I have 2 battle stars in tank now. I haven't seen anyone with that much in tank. I roxor the tank.
  • 12/9 - Every game is massively one sided with people camping the spawn area. This was a problem in BF 1942 and it's Europe Expansion. That's what killed 1942. I hope they figure out what went wrong there and fix it. You can't even really mortar your way out with the mortar nerf.
  • 12/8 - Before the patch games were even. Now after the patch every game I'm in is massively one sided. Not sure why or what changes made that happen.
  • 12/7 - The game is sure a lot less fun without all the exploits. haha. Level 40.
  • 12/5 - I was having such a good time AA-ing it up when they shut it all down and patched it. :( Now Need to try the new version.
  • 12/5 - 2 GB patch. One has to wonder why it's that big. Maybe it's the new DLC and it's just locked.
  • Tactical light, other fixes in Dec. 6 Battlefield 3 PC patch
  • 12/4 - If you pick the AA gun on the US carrier on canals, it can hit 1/2 the map including every person on the ground. I did that all weekend and got like 7 levels. It can nearly not be killed, only a TV missile can kill it. I guess they're fixing it next patch someone said. You shoulda heard all the things I got cussed out as. They called me a Fa#*#*ot x 5, and a COD player, and Cu#Tlips. haha. One guy said he's banning me and resetting my stats. It's cheesy but so is a lot of other things in the game. IT's the most fun I've had at a game in years. People are so mad but I'm so good at hitting them.
  • 12/4 - Figured out how to remove the audio swearing from the game. Change the language to German or Japanese. It's hilarious. Instructions. Now I can have the audio going without the game swearing at my family. I let my kid play now and he spent 7 hours playing and leveling my stuff up.
  • 12/2 - Battlefield 3's 'Back to Karkand' expansion arrives on PS3 Dec. 6, 360 and PC on Dec. 13
  • 12/1 - Level 31!
  • 12/1 - Assault Weapon Guide
  • 12/1 - Battlefield 3 sells through 8 million of 12 million total shipped
  • 12/1 - Trolling Battlefield 3 Players with Some Well-Placed Explosives

  • Back playing again. It's so much fun! 54 hours played. I'm almost level 30

  • EA Being Taken to Court Over Broken Battlefield Promise
  • PLaying for 2 days solid with a good group. It's the best! Up to level 25 with 45 hours played.
  • Battlefield 3's 'Back to Karkand' expansion clearly has a problem with structures
  • 30 hours played!
  • Just upgraded my tank to max and got the service star. I rule! I love tank driving.
  • Battlefield is going to be $40 on black Friday at a few places. So if there's people waiting to join in (friends) that's the time.
  • DICE plans to fix Battlefield 3's magic tactical light
  • Battlefield 3 bans issued across all platforms
  • Up to 38 people. Not alot online, I think cuz of Skyrim.
  • I decided to try resing people and it's so much fun. I got 4,000 points on metro just rezing people.
  • Got the INRV (whatever) scope. Yeah that thing is total cheats. I'm doing awesome with it now. I have it on the SCAR.
  • Cheaters are starting to show up. I guess they banned some. The things we noticed are a helicopter pilot that has auto aim no matter where you are on the map. He did not ever miss. Even if you were alone in the forest on foot.
  • NEW: Must See BF3 Movie of kills. I want to try some of that stuff. I love that crap.
  • Got the game going at work. Yay.
  • Today I had my best round ever. 11-0 and MVP. I was in a tank the most of the time.
  • Battlefield 3 - A Comprehensive Guide to Damaging Tanks (from Duece)
  • Battlefield goes 'Back to Karkand' in latest trailer
  • Last night I got on canal with a RPG and kept shooting them around a corner as my team restocked the missiles. I got 7 kills. It was awesome.
  • Battlefield 3 for Xbox 360, PS3, or PC Dog Tag 5-Pack for free - That movie actually looked interesting.
  • Battlefield 3: Jets
  • Battlefield 3: How to Fly Helicopters
  • EA: Battlefield 3 multiplayer will keep players coming back despite MW3 launch
  • Free Battlefield 3 skins and dog tags available through Dr. Pepper promotion
  • Finally got my first group going. We join a party, then try to join their game. We had 6 people maybe. Unfortunately squads are limited to 4. I also discovered there's a menu to switch between the squads. Eventually we ended up with 3 people in our squad and it was pretty fun. If only you get a medic in your group.
  • Auto join Script - Works pretty well when I tried it.
  • Battlefield 3 internal sales estimates show 5 million units sold in week one, globally
  • EA justifies Battlefield 3 single player
  • Battlefield 3 Tanks Invade London�s Rush Hour
  • We got a vent channel going. Check the platoon page for the password/login.
  • Battlefield 3�s Many Vehicles Seen on A Big-Ass, Triple-Screen Display
  • We're up to 18 people in the platoon!
  • I got in a tank and THEN it's was super fun. I went 11-4 and #1 on my team and #2 cuz our team lost out of 64 people! I was awesome in the tank. I'd do even better with a good squad member. Have to get some regular friends and get the voice chat going.
  • Tried the jets finally. I have no idea how to even lock on or hit anything on the ground. I don't know how people do it.
  • I finally got BF3 going. I've only got 5 hours played. One member has already level 18 or so. I got to play with Gruelon last night. I had my best round ever, 1/2 a level. We were capping flags and using a tank.
  • http://www.joystiq.com/2011/10/24/battlefield-3-review-squad-score-bonus/
  • You still have to use the crummy browser to do everything, even play single-player. I look on task manager and Firefox is hogging massive memory. You can switch to Chrome though.
  • It's way more improved from the beta.
  • Hard to get vehicles or find them.
  • Still get sniped a lot
  • They're letting you play SINGLE now! Multi still doesn't work (10:27 pm)
  • You can now start your download of the full game that unlocks on Tuesday if you've preordered on Origin.
  • Battlefield 3 fires up some multiplayer gameplay footage
  • Battlefield 3 brings down the house with 'Destruction' trailer
  • The beta and Battlefield 3
  • MUST SEE VIDEO (BF1942 version)
  • I can't get the game to play at all since the first 2 days. It's always stuck on connecting.
  • They said they brought the Caspian map finally to the beta.
  • For All Its Airplanes, Earthquakes and Explosions, Battlefield 3�s Campaign Is Remarkably Dull
  • New Tank Bug Video - So funny.
  • Frustrated Battlefield Rep Unloads on Ungrateful Community [Battlefield] - Well it's not faire that some people got to play Caspian and others didn't, esp pre-orders. We would also like to see some vehicles instead of just snipers.
  • BF3: EOD bot in action (C4's, Roadkill, soldier frying and mcom arming) - If only you got to see any of the cool stuff in the beta.
  • My stat page (ADD ME!)(They might have hid it behind a login)
  • Battlefield 3 Tank Gameplay - SO FUNNY
  • I was able to play with a friend last night but I could not get the voice chat going. Also sometimes it puts you not on the same squad and 2 times the thing just crashes out cuz you're in a party.
  • Battlefield 3 beta now available to the masses
  • Battlefield 3�s Producer Is His Own Viciously Hard Critic, Says He�s �Ashamed� of Bad Company 2
  • A Somewhat Laggy Visit To Battlefield 3�s Massive Caspian Border
  • Their new flashlight and laser lights really add a lot to gameplay. You get blinded then someone kills you.
  • Only 1 map to play on. Gets old fast. I saw they had a second map on a private server with a password.
  • No vehicles so far.
  • Feels like a day or two of play because of only a few levels and no vehicles. It wears out fast. The full version will be much more exciting I'm sure.
  • You have to die over and over again to set your controls. The controls/settings only work when you're alive.
  • Lots of sniping going on. Feels just like Bad Company 2 without the vehicles. Because there's no vehicles, and a couple of maps that are very sniper friendly, there's tons of sniping. BF to me is all about vehicles and the vehicles are not in the beta. You're also missing the airstrike binoculars to get the snipers.
  • Battlefield 3�s Oddly Browser-Based PC Beta
  • They sent me an email. You download Origin, then enter a code, then they let you play. They sent an email.
  • I started the download and can play after work. I'm "Nebu7777" if there's anyway to add me.
  • Beta is supposed to start tomorrow.

    Looks like the only way I'll be playing this game is if it is possible to buy a retail copy that doesn't require activation on EA's Origin service. I can't believe EA are being such douches and not offering it via Steam :(

    so ea are douches for offering a game that requires activation from their servers instead of requiring activation from valve's servers. am i getting that right?

    What else would you call a company that deliberately withholds a title from the largest and most successful digital distribution medium (Steam) while allowing it to be sold on other, less popular digital distribution mediums (ex. Direct2Drive, Impulse)?

    What do you call a company that arbitrarily allows some of its games to be sold via Steam (ex. Battlefield Bad Company 2) while yanking others from the store for no apparent reason (ex. Crysis 2)?

    It would be one thing if they decided all their games would be exclusively available through their online store, but that's not what's happening here. And even then, their online store (Origin) and game support mechanism behind it is largely unknown and unproven.

    I could talk about their overall reputation towards developers, game support and the gamer community at large but that would be a post unto itself. Bottom line is I trust Valve a hell of a lot more than I do EA.

    So yeah, their douches and that's putting it mildly.

    Like I said, if the game can be purchased without it being anchored to their online store/system, I'll gladly pony up the money. If not, I'll spend my money elsewhere.

    im sure there are plenty of invigorating reasons to dislike ea as a company, i just think their having a preference for digital distribution and authentication that doesn't match yours isn't necessarily achieving the 'douches' title

    I'll buy a game anywhere, but I do think it should be a law that all games must be digitally distributed through Steam or GOG.

    Because those services are the shit.

    haha, your argument notwithstanding HJ, I'd like to see what some competition would create.

    Also, hows BF3's multiplayer shit? I hate the noob direction CoD went with automatchmaking and all that garbage.

    I want multiplayer like CS 1.5 or earlier.

    As great as Steam is it doesn't hurt to have some competition, and I don't blame EA one bit for trying to create their own distribution system. Doing so exemplifies them from sharing the profits but also burdens them with maintaining integrity against cheating and piracy which Steam has already perfected.

    This game looks fantastic. I just hope it remains as hack-free as possible on the PC.

    If Steam doesn't have competition they will demand a larger and larget cut of the profits for the distribution. I think all large publishing companies should have their own electronic distribution. I think it is awesome how I can download any of my Blizzard Games online from anywhere.

    I have 4 or 5 different games on my Steam account but I hate having to install their program to download and play the games.

    There was a funny workaround for the beta BF3 Xbox360 servers: repeatedly tapping the A button while connecting. As stupid as it sounds, I experimented a little and it actually improved the chances of actually connecting. They fixed the connecting bug and you shouldn't have to do this anymore.

    I've played several rounds now on the 360, and it's great fun. Having never played COD, or BF game before this I'm really having a hard time seeing people. Most of my FPS experience is with TF2, and Halo which are totally different game play. I'll be running along and get popped and have no clue where the enemy was. So that's frustrating but I'm pretty sure I'll be picking this game up.

    I picked mine up last night and got a few hours in on single player in hard mode. Definitely as good if not better than COD single player and the graphics blow away any FPS I've ever seen. Running 2560X1600 with max settings and full AA and amazingly my cards are handling it smoothly. (not sure how to check FPS)

    There was some crazy fat kid who was first in line at Gamestop with a posterboard sign hanging around his neck that said "First Copy Fuck Yeah" who apparently waited the full 3 hours out in the 40 degree cold in order to get his copy. After he got his copy he ran up and down the line hopping and yelling "First copy! Fuck yeah!". I felt kind of sorry for him because you know someone somewhere will probably be camping him. The other 200 people in line all had their copies in less than 10 minutes. I got there at 11:50 and was in my home with my copy at 12:15. Showing up early to midnight releases any more just makes zero sense.

    He could have joined the server you were playing on by via origin. You can do that by just clicking the user in the friends list or whatever.

    I love the console commands in the game. There is a render.drawperfoverview or something open that shows your current GPU and CPU usage so you can tune your performance. There is also a render.showFPS command to display your framerate. I'm getting 35-50 FPS which is smooth enough for me.

    I got to fly the jet once and I tried shooting down another jet and ended up kamikaziing it and killing us both. It didn't give me the kill though )=

    Choppers are just bad.

    The AA vehicle is my favorite, you can really tear anything up except for a tank.

    The base sniper kit is horrible, unless you get a headshot it takes like 3-4 shots to kill.

    I love how you can upgrade all your shit by "leveling". This is my first multiplayer FPS since CS:source

    Choppers aren`t that bad. I started flying them a bit more yesterday and got pretty good at them. It`s different than BF1942/DC and BF2, just takes a awhile to get used to them, and then they own.

    I agree, the AA owns. You can take out tanks too, you just have to be sneaky about it. I`ve gone 11-0 in the AA, taking out air, tanks and infantry. Fun stuff =)

    I think it`s the same with all kits/vehicles, they`re all pretty bad until you "level" them up and get the extra options.

    Protip: When you unlock the INRV (IR 1x) night vision scope, use it. All the time. Even during the day, it turns the landscape green, and any vehicles/people light up as orange. I bet they patch this later, but it makes it so easy to spot people. It`s kind of cheap how easy it is now.

    It's too bad Source doesn't allow you to import your Steam friends. You pick up tons of friends from gaming on Steam throughout the years, and will lose access to them when making the switch to a new platform unless you know them outside their avatar.

    Deuce, I built my computer for $800 about 3 years ago. Since then I've only upgraded my video card and my RAM, about $250 total. So about $1000 in three years.

    I run everything on max, and I can probably run BF3 on pretty snazzy settings. Computers aren't THAT expensive if you build them yourself.

    Also I'm still on the fence about this one. The whole Origin service sounds horrendous, and I'm still enthralled by Dark Souls in between playing the HOMM6 campaigns. Is BF3 going to beat out MW3?

    Too many good games coming out! I still have to get Batman and Skyrim. I kind of hope SWTOR sucks so I don't get sucked into that too...

    In Multiplayer I don't see how MW3 can beat BF3. If you only play single player MW3 is better.

    Origin server is meh, but the battlelog is pretty slick and once they work out the kinks here shortly I think it will be superior.

    Applied/added you Nebu.

    I've been running with a buddy of mine these past few nights. I'm looking to get a 3 or 4 man squad going to play on the large conquest maps. It's so fun going around destroying everyone because you've got an engineer/medic combo and can heal/res/take out vehicles all at the same time.

    Yeah, I never got past the second level or so in MW2 single player. I own jokers in MP though.

    I guess I'll take the leap and pick this up for the weekend. I haven't been into a MP shooter on my PC in a long time - should be fun.

    Hardcore isn't nearly as fun for more casual FPS players. I can understand the desire to play hardcore from a truly competitive standpoint but the added realism doesn't really make it more fun IMO.

    I bought this during the Black Friday sale. Held off because of my specs. AMD 2.7ghz dual core, 4 gigs ram, Nvidia 9800 GT. I did not think I could run it but it runs smooth as silk and doesn`t look half bad. Pretty fun too, already level 15. Only complaint is sometimes the enemies don`t render on my screen and I end up getting killed by phantoms. I know this because hostiles magically appear in front of me miliseconds before death. That is far from the norm though. Really tearing it up in the tanks, great fun!

    The game came yesterday. I played it for 20 min. The graphics is amazing, but you have to have a screen the size of a football field to be able to spot infantry running around.

    Also, can I really not prone anymore?

    You can prone. Find the hot key or reassign it.

    You can find infantry easy, esp after getting scopes or zoom on vehicles or the INVR cheat scope.

    Yeah right now I'm either getting games where my team is completely dominating or on a team getting their ass kicked really bad.

    It's not eve fun being on the dominating team because you're not able to capture all the points when you already own them.

    I'm at 19 tank hours and 2 maybe 3 tank service stars and I haven't played in 4 weeks you slacker!

    246 hours on Skyrim, 100 in all skills and grinding thought the main campaign now. Should be done by Sunday.....can't let Nebu pass me in tank kills!

    They should change battlefield to FPT(First Person Tank) from FPS for us Nebu.

    Yeah I guess I do notice the jets killing me more.

    19 tank hours: yeah but I have lots of other things upgraded too. I did 15 hours in the AA gun on the carrier. I have the mobile AA nearly upgraded.

    Char: guess you don't have kids? I have little gaming time. I have to start about 9:30 p.m. And rarely do I have weekends.

    Yeah no kids thank God. Everyone I know with kids seems to have little time to do anything for themselves. I'm sure kids have their benefits but man the drawbacks sure suck /=

    It's my obsessive compulsive perfectionism that requires I do EVERYTHING in Skyrim before moving on to beat the game. Every quest, every book read, every attribute maxed.

    Def looking forward to some mindless FPS again. I feel like I've been reading a 2000 page book.

    I'm being one of the Recon idiots. All I want is my x12 magnification optics and I'll be happy.

    Although, I don't feel like I help my squad/team very much by being a sniper. A motion detector here and there, one of those for-vehicle-marking devices, shooting crap from far away... but when it comes to a closed quarters combat I can only serve as a bullet bait. :(

    Also, hardcore servers ftw! Can't stand people NOT coming down after more than 2 bullets!

    I take my laptop--gaming say what you want it works and is portable-- to Saltine`s house every now and then and we play side by side, when we do we tend to control the game. Vent or whatever other comm channels can`t compare.

    I`m just trying to get a service star in all the classes, support is taking forever! But finished with a nice round for me! http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/battlereport/show/9861617/1/340481398/

    And I`ve discovered a very annoying bug--I don`t even know where to report it... Anyone else been full auto on a LMG only to have someone die next to you and you auto switch to their gun without actually attempting to pick it up?

    Time for me to become everyone`s least favorite teammate there with undreaming! 8)

    The sniper is the least helpful teammate ever. It's like they shouldn't even be in your squad. UNLESS they're spotting with laser in which case they're super helpful.

    Yeah, I have that gadget now that I can put somewhere on a rooftop or a building and it'll spot and lock all the vehicles that it will see in front of it (choppers, planes, tanks, LAV, etc)

    Don't have a laser thing yet.

    ALSO, the only time i've been relatively useful was to set up a spawn bacon. AND cover the rush base with fire. It's so fun to see enemy soldiers run up to arm the objective only to get their head blown off... by me! :D

    Unless you bought the limited edition it's $15 for the expansion. Least for this expansion you get 10 new guns, new vehicles, and new maps, and achievements instead of just new maps.

    Oh, man! I got into a tank last night and got over 90 kills between me and my gunner! We were roxorz on it! IR smoke is SO useful! I got tons of ribbons of all kinds, a couple of unlocks (Optics, Preventative Maintenance - I like that, and something else).

    Too bad that points obtained in the vehicles do not count toward the kit you're wearing (I was a sniper).

    As for sniping, getting a 12x Scope makes a huge difference. Now I just need a bigger gun to sling those bullets farther and straighter.

    Smoke is horrible on tanks. It makes it hard to see the guys to shoot, even with the Thermal on. NO ONE USES IT BUT NEWBS. But if it worked for you, maybe you got lucky. Also the smoke is like the only thing that can stop all those annoying jets/choppers.

    I have 700+ tank kills not counting my 100s of assists.

    I suck at sniping, I gave up. Maybe I'll try it once everything is maxed. You can level up recon by using the non sniper guns that are unlocked anyway. The SVN98? Is supposed to be the best gun anyway.

    Yeah, that's what I'm talking about! Thermal smoke made me live oh so long in that tank because no chopper or jet could get a lock on.

    Ground personnel, well, my buddy gunner would jump out and fix me for that. Also, I had to do a lot of machine-gun/cannon switching to pick out those pesky anti-tank soldiers.

    My Tank build is
    Heavy Machine Gun as #2 key. I can take out people on foot with 1-3 hits. It's super easy.

    Thermal - Must have all the time.

    Reactive Armor - Makes them have to hit you more with RPGs.

    Try the canister shell nebu, it`s like a shotgun blast from a tank, great for taking out foot soldiers! Yeah the reload is like the main shell--slightly faster--but much better than the machine gun! My opinion at least. Thermal optics of course are a must once you unlock it you should be forced to have it in you`re build as far as I`m concerned. The third upgrade I think I use proximity scan but that`s only because I haven`t really tried any of the armor boosts and figure if I`m going to get into a thick enough fight where I need the extra armor I`m going to lose the tank anyway.

    I'm the tank master. I'm 2 1/2 stars and 21 hours in the tank. It says I have 700+ kills.

    The HMG is better than the shotgun because it can snipe people. I snipe people half way across the map with thermal and the hmg. Most of the time I'm in HMG mode and only use the main gun if I see another tank. It also is great against air vehicles. I take out helicopters with it sometimes.

    Ahhh! I use the main shell against helos... Don`t make me start spending more time in the tank to out rank you! 8) But that`s whats great about this game... to each his own preference! But just to brag I snipe with the canister as well, makes headshots that much more rewarding when it only takes a single shot. 8)

    I think thermal and proximity scan is a must, especially if you are solo without a gunner like I am most of the time. Most of my kills are probably in close range.

    Personally I like Canister more than the machine gun, I take choppers out with a quick main gun/canister shot. Machine gun is nicer than canister at long range but that is what your main gun is for.

    I didn't see much difference with reactive armor either.

    Ohh and I only see 550 tank kills Nebu with 21.5 hours in a tank. By contrast I'm at 933 tank kills with just under 20 hour :P~

    Jaddaj has us both destroyed with 1267 kills and 24 hours.

    The stats are messed. On the page I'm at 500. In-game I'm at 722+. And it's not counting all my assists. I got a SHITLOAD of assists where some idiot steals my kills but I still get points. For all I know I have 3-10x more assists than kills. There's no way to make a good comparison between us all except J probably has way more than us all. He rules.

    I think the Canister blows. I was using it last night. You have to hump their leg with your tank to get any kills.

    The HMG in comparison is sniping people across the map miles away.

    Main gun? You must be an amazing shot to hit people on foot every time with that. The HMG is much more reliable in my opinion.

    I suppose whatever works for you. For the Proximity I'm spinning around wildly using thermal instead.

    This game is an absolute blast. Here's a bunch of funny things I've seen so far since starting...

    - Playing the campaign. A telephone pole got knocked down, and one of my AI allies proceeded on with his scripted running and ended up carrying the telephone pole with him as if it were weightless.

    - Driving a tank, I notice I'm taking fire from behind. I turn around to engage only to watch a jet crash land headlong into the ground right behind me.

    - AMTRAC drives over a tank as we're engaging it. Another AMTRAC drives over a tree and carries it with it throughout its life.

    - I was chasing a tank half way across the map to C4 it. I finally catch up with it and as I'm dropping the C4 on it the tank drives away. So I spot it and duck into a building, and watch as it turns around comes after me. Then I blow it up as it passes over the C4 I dropped on the ground.

    The variety of things you can do in this game is great.

    yeah it took me awhile to adjust to the cannister but it is a great way to frontload a ton of damage.Probably helped tune my snap-targetting of the main gun as well. The spread at certain ranges of the cannister is huge for wiping out people and nailing choppers/humvees/jeeps.

    I'm pretty good with the main gun at long range, I get head shots all the time with it which is pretty funny considering a tank shell head shot is more of a decapitation.

    I think the biggest danger is when you have people running up behind you and you and shoot low enough to hit them. Proximity allows me to see them coming so I gas it while turning both the tank and the gun to nail them before they get in range to C4.

    Well Javelins are the biggest danger now it seems, they are worse than the stupid mortar fire from across the map considering you can see who is targetting you.

    The new patch fixes pretty much every complaint I've had about the game.

    Helicopters surviving when I hit them with a tank shell, MAV abusers getting 100 kills per round, most attachments being useless, weapons all feeling the same, planes being too strong, etc. All that crap is gone.

    Scout chopper with laser painter and guided missile is so funny. You just aim your nose at a jet and get a heat seeking lock and fire at them. They have a much harder time dodging it than air to air missiles. Also you're painting them for other people to do Javelin or other guided shots. AND you get a bonus to spotting them. It's funny! It also keeps hitting them with the lock sound so they never know when to use your chaff very well.

    I can't wait to get painter/guided on scout choppers. Upgrading these choppers has been slow since they're so rare. Flying choppers is definitely my favorite thing to do in this game.

    My current goal is to get as many unique weapon service starts as possible. Right now I'm at 50. After that it'll be to see how many weapons I can unlock all attachments for.

    I'm so in love with this game. It's beautiful.

    So getting all the unlocks by paying is kinda dumb except for the air stuff. If you're behind on aircraft upgrades you'll never get them unless you buy them through this or play on a private server and work on unlocking it. All the players with the air unlocks will completely dominate any newbies in air combat.

    The Laser Designator unlock on the Scout Helicopters has been changed from a Pilot Upgrade to a new stance in the Copilot seat (position 4). Like the CITV turret on the Main Battle Tanks, the Scout Helicopter’s Laser Designator is permanently available to players who have received the unlock.

    Lame. That's my fav thing to do.

    • Increased the damage helicopter and jet rockets do to helicopters, jets and infantry.
    • Increased the damage helicopter gunners and IFVs do to helicopters and jets.
