Thanks guys, the UCAV sounds cool, but the other maps look like they would be fun as well. I probably will upgrade to premium soon.

I did notice the change in the Obliteration mode and I felt it was more balanced with the lighter vehicles. A couple days a go on Obliteration rouge transmission, my team allowed the enemy to get ahold of both AA vehicles and it laid havoc on us. Of course nobody was trying to take out the vehicles for a long time (I tried about 10 times)so we can get our AA re-spawned back on our home base.

I hit the 300 Hour mark today. Been pretty fun for the most part, except for the games that lag, which I try to avoid (conquest).

Racked up close to 19,000 kills in that time:

4000 Assault Rifle
2000 Carbine
1000 Sniper Rifle
1000 Shotgun
1000 Personal Defense
1000 Light Machine Guns
1000 Marksman Rifle

500 Handgun
500 Grenade
400 Melee Weapons

1500 tank
1000 Infantry Fighting Vehicle
500 Anti Air
400 Transport Vehicle

Battlefield 2014 has been confirmed. Looks like we missed this when the story went live.

http://www.gamespot.com/articles/ea-battlefield-s-rocky-launch-did-not-damage-the-franchise/1100-6418131/

Finally, Jorgensen said Battlefield will be a "key" franchise for EA going forward and teased that the franchise will be "critical" to EA's fiscal year 2015, which begins next month. A Battlefield game for 2014 has not been announced, though a police-themed entry in the series from Visceral Games is rumored to launch this year.

Key Franchise? I found a pic of Mr. Jorgensen taken after the meeting concluded and he appears to still be in marketing mode.

Thanks for inviting me to the chat, it was great. Sorry I couldn't participate, got light sleepers so I can never use a mic without waking them up. This is two hours late but Buffalo Trace is my favorite bourbon. Wild Turkey has been on my "buy" list forever but just haven't gotten it yet.

I'm halfway through this and it's really good. Something about the honey makes it so right.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm still stuck, maybe DICE doesn't realize there's an information gap.
BF3 log showed more. My question is how do you even know what the airburst or cruise missile is for as they aren't clickable.

Here's a comparison for others. DICE included lines for the unlock path and the "reward" was clickable"


Clicking on rewarded BA Bolt takes you here where it shows the weapon it's used for:


BF4 log leaves one wondering and guessing. I have no idea what a cruise missile is, isn't the UCAV already a small cruise missile? Maybe this makes it last longer. Gets messy when all 5 map packs are released.



I worked for over 2 hours on the bombing raid and got to 9 kills, ha, potentially 4 hours for a single unlock...that's after working for the UCAV unlock which could take some guys like 5 hours. Almost like DICE is trolling biggrin.gif

Shave off 30-60min of learning curve following this. Stuff I spent time experimenting with to find what worked

UCAV unlock tips.

Air superiority, get 3 jet fighter ribbons. Ribbon requires 5 kills in a match.
  1. Stick to 20mm cannons. 4/5 of my kills come from cannon. Missiles are for cherry picking.
  2. Use "active radar" missle as soon as unlocked. Must be much closer to target but target lacks time to flare
  3. Skip passive radar
  4. Use ECM. Staying in a hot mess swarm of dog-fighting helps avoid lock-ons.

The cheap way, get 4 guys to jump in a hardcore server and boost. Teaches you nothing, and flying the UCAV is like riding a squirrel.

Bombing raids for UCAV airburst and cruise missile:
  1. Maximize time by firing away as soon as you enter, they will reload in time for you to hit main area
  2. Don't hit "Square" to reload, it ejects you from the bomber and can't re-enter
  3. Try camping by it, put MAV in the air to spot some tanks/snipers/AA so there's a target when you enter bomber.

First Fk MPH for keeping me up late. I'm exhausted. But it was fun and had some good laughs. Great discussions.


@Cravit8

Mostly I learned them through battlelog forums. The airburst is for the ucav. The LT will make the ucav explode where you want. Useful vs little birds with engineers repairing. Get right beside it and blow them up. The cruise missile is for the bomber. A secondary weapon.

It was later than normal. I think it was like 10:30 when I got on. We had 3-5 of us on throughout the night.

I got to play last night, the lag was horrible. We were in a great server too with loads of bad players.

I really want to unlock the UCAV, but I am just an epic phail in air vehicles. Ground vehicles, I can do just fine; boats, just fine. Jets... complete noob blueberry. My problem is that I just can't see anything. There is so much crap going on in the reticle and it seems like I can't see anything until I get right up to it and fly past. It's so frustrating, it's the only part of Battlefield I just can't grasp. One time I almost got one jet ribbon, but I think Lazy stole my 5th kill.

Sounds like I could of. After you left the lag was just about gone. Only on hainan when the building came down but that was it. It was pretty much fine for most of the night

You need to join a server with another good jet pilot. Trail helped me with the ribbons. He helped weakened vehicles for me. Also I like the guided missile. Look for beacons on top of buildings with sniper near them and blow the beacon up, the sniper will die also. I've gotten a few kills that way. Hainan was the map I got most of my ribbons

X1 side was not so smooth either. After 2 good solid games with no issues, the lag was just unbareable. I turned it off and twitch TianFall clips.

Yeah I need to unlock UCAV too. Have like 40 something jet kills but have only been able to only obtain 1 ribbon. Either I'm getting blown out of the sky by AA, stinger/igla or another dominating jet pilot.

BTW, fastest way to get stealth jet unlocks is playing Air Superiority and using XP bonuses or waiting for a double XP weekend. I managed to unlock all SJ unlocks playing AS on a double XP weekend in 3 hrs.

Kept seeing invites from MPH last night but I wasn't in the mood. Gone are the days of staying up until 1 AM playing BF. Not because I wouldn't but because this pos has sapped any desire I have of putting effort in. Played Lego and just enjoyed myself. Did have rubberbanding though, Mr Fantastic rubberbanded some baddies biggrin.gif

Mph only came on to chat. He wouldn't even spawn in most of the time and got booted for inactivity even though he was still talking. You could of chimed in with the great discussions we had.

Topics that I remember
Mph being to old to use the word "beast". As in "this jeep is beast"
Bourbon
Bourbon/whiskey distillery tours
Cars
Jeeps
If mph was to old to drive/buy a Subaru wrx
If mph should buy a Japanese car instead of American. Even though he owns 2 Toyotas
Size of Detroit
Aholes of Chicago

I could be missing some
