In the end I'll just have to see how it all plays out to form an opinion. It seems to be an overall improvement from the outside. It's hard not to negatively fixate on a few particular things. At first I was looking forward to using some burst fire weapons more frequently as well as moving away from the suppressor some. But now I am not sure. I'll just have to see how it goes.

Its hard to tell where you are serious vs. sarcastic.

The multi-lock fix for example, is that a serious response or sarcastic?

Here to help and learn. Thanks AVS.

I still can't figure out why Dice thinks that vehicle vs. vehicle battles are "tedious." Is it that people are complaining that the whopping 2-10 seconds it takes to kill the enemy chopper/tank/jet are taking up their precious spawnkilling time? Or is it that CoD walkers/campers are irritated that vehicles are "taking forever" to die? Or is it that they feel that noobs should be able to get kills just as easily as vets, destroying the enemy in one lucky shot?

If they keep pushing vehicles towards being paper shells, just name BF4 something with "Modern Walkfare" in the title.

This isn't right. Yeah, you want noobs to feel not so noobish, but still. It's like the Famas being so damned easy to get; the most overpowered gun in the history of all FPS games takes noobs and everyone else about 10 minutes to get...meanwhile, I was fighting tooth and nail from day one to get something decent. Pretty ridiculous if you ask me.

Hah i'll still take my m16 over the famas =P but yep pretty true.
Even a step further though. It's more like they let you play with the m16 the entire time until you get the famas. Then they make a patch from then on that makes the m16 do double damage.

Yes, sorry Hoosier. I was sarcastic here because, like not being able to vault railings, it was painful as well not being able to lock on to a target because of the jumping/ indecisive nature of the target designating devices. At critical times, with small windows of opportunity, this issue is a game changer. So it will be a big change that I will like.

I'm confused, although I am trying to access it through my phone. How do you see your own rank? (In looking at the L96 ranks I see a guy I recognize that is ranked like 14th overall. He owned me after MAV riding to the highest build on Karkand, I just couldn't get clean shots away. He killed me like 6-7 times and I only got him once. I was still holding objectives, and my team won, but I was a little perturbed, so I kept trying to get him. He had teabagged me the previous match. That's why he was on my radar. I got him once and then he owned me, teabagged me and sent annoying messages. LOL

Don't even try to countersnipe those that are clearly better than you. Simply run those bitches down with the MAV. Done!

If nothing else, you take them completely out of the game.

Act of Valor is getting really bad reviews (under 30% on rottentomatoes) and sounds like a poorly executed version of a movie that would have fit in better 10 years ago.

I got to use the LAV-AD tonight. It seems much more nimble than the Tunguska. I think I was lucky that the opposing helicopter/jet pilots were not very good, and Razor and Revel were in tanks holding off the enemy tanks. I don't use the anti-air much so it always amazes me how quickly it drops infantry.

Yeah, every now and them I see a couple if your, Hapi, and I'm like wow. I know you have a lot of kills with a few different guns each. What guns were you talking about, though?

In looking at by bf3stats.com stats, I realized they had me in the top 1% with the SKS. I was surprised, mainly because I haven't used it in a pretty long time. They got me ranked at 79. Somewhat shocking to me. (unless time played is factored in somehow ).

Does anybody know what "value" is, as that is how they determine the ranks. It's not skill they go by, although they may factor into it. IDK

Edit- uh, nevermind. "Value" is kills. I have 1239 kills with the SKS and that puts me at 80th on bf3stats.com rankings with the SKS. For their stats are they only using stats from people that have registered, or does that include everybody that plays the game whether they registered on bf3stats.com or not?

yeah it looks like the ranks on bf3stats.com are based on people who use the site, and used the gun. Actually it looks people who have over 100 kills since some guns where I have 100 kills even I'm in "top 100%", but guns under 100 kills not ranked at all.

For example m249 is based on 44,000 users. AS Val is based upon 10,000 users. Don't know the total numbers of Battlefield 3 players but I'd imagine numbers in hundreds of thousands.

Yea, at the bottom of the page:

Top Rankings for weapons and vehicles begin from 100 kills. To other rankings may apply other limitations.

Don't forget it's amphibious. My favorite thing to do on that map is drive around in the lagoon picking off swimmers and going between A and C.

Had some fun games last night with Chief Veritas, General Patt0n, Shiles, and Dandypants. sirjonsnow joined in late on Firestorm, unfortunately on the wrong team. He's getting a lot better with the jet!

Not against dedicated air-to-air fighters I'm not! Love helping support against the ground though, even kind of good in the F-35? (the one with hover), had some fun flying under cranes and around buildings.

Even against Top Gun Mavericks. You're getting better at evasive maneuvering.

And yeah taking out ground targets is where it's at. Though obviously Rush is better for that than Conquest.

Are you using rockets or guided missile? I usually prefer rockets, though one pass disable means it's incredibly difficult to get a full kill (if a tank has a single driver and hops out to repair).

How do we know when the undate takes place. Do we log into the game and then it tells us, as opposed to just turning on the xbox to the xbox home screen?
