If it can do that to a tank, goodbye scout chopper. No way an engineer will be able to repair that fast.

Yet another match where I've got 6 douchetastic snipers on my team and no help at all: http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/#!/bf3/battlereport/show/2/78428767/193240010/

Game was close at first, but only because I was capping and killing like a madman. I was fighting 2 whole squads solely bent upon killing me, and only me.

(Who could blame them when half my team has taken themselves completely out of the game by finding a spot for some buttseks with a sniping buddy in the mountains? rolleyes.gif)

Fortunately, Wayward joined in late, we put the hammer down, and secured the win. smile.gif

LOL fact: That achinaut guy got his entire 14K points by spawning in my tank every time and piggybacking objective points. Must have been a good day for him! wink.gif

Yesterday I had like the worst 2 hours of bf3 ever. Got on to fly Jets. Messed with my stick layout because my thumb seems to slowly fall off the thumbstick while turning in a dog fight. Well practicing with new sticks in game was a terrible decision. Then went to infantry maps and had complete morons on my team. Not to mention I kept getting kicked and banned, whenever my team did happen to be decent. It was just a ridiculous couple of hours.

CTF is a blast. Total rush speeding away on a dirt bike while everyone is trying to kill you...and hunting down the enemy while you're team is trying to score with the flag. Aside from the summer map, I think all of them are great. What armored kill should have been on consoles.

I finally got my Maverick dog tag (thanks Brian). It was not boosted, but he helped me stay in the air. Now, I never need to get in another jet. I'm really just a lost cause in the jets. It seems like everything else I can figure out. I have figured out the sniper rifles to the point where I can be good with them. I can fly the choppers. The ground vehicles, no problem. I just practiced until I got it. But those #!%$ing jets are just ridiculous - I just cannot get it. I can play a 40 minute match and be in a jet the entire time and not break 1000 points. It seems like other pilots can literally defy physics and stop on the dime, flip the jet completely over, and speed off at top speed immediately, where as I have to make these big sweeping turns that other jets can see from a mile away. And I don't even want to talk about stingers, I was getting locked on and I was in the out of bounds area. I can't even lock on to a jet when its flying right over me. So, I officially quit jet piloting. It's just way too frustrating. However, I will be wearing that Maverick dog tag with pride.

Yesterday, I decided to play Armored Shield as recon and try to stay out of vehicles (except for two very short stints in the attack chopper where I spawned and died), I just ATV'd my way to flags. It actually worked out really well. The map is so large that, if you can hit the shots, you can do well. I completely understand why some people also always use the 7x and 8x scopes on the rifles also. It really is better than using the low-power medium range scopes (3.4x and 4x). You just have so much more precision.

For as much as I complain about the game, I love it. I've never put this amount of time into any game, let alone playing online. I never, and I mean NEVER, used to play online. Something about this game though.

Harp does your flag location show on the map/HUD when the enemy is carrying it? Obv answer is yes but you never know.
Take little bird with enemy flag behind your base OOB, wait. It would be good if they wouldn't let you take the flag OOB.
post #13631 of 16243
Picking up a used PS3 yesterday and was very tempted on getting bf3 for it to play some of the new maps last night. Not sure if its worth the $35 for 4 days of early access.


I would think they wouldnt let you OOB with the flag. If you cant place a mortar down then I would think the same rules apply. Or maybe there is no oob for the spawns and you randomly spawn around your flag. I havent looked up any of the new maps on YouTube since I kind of want to play them first before seeing them.

Both flags show up on the map and once you go OOB the flag is dropped. I didn't think you could ride shotgun in the chopper with it but apparently you just can't fly with it. Key is without a doubt having a good scout pilot. Frag rounds too for clearing out the flags.
post #13633 of 16243
Yeah I have a ps3 and it crossed my mind to get bf3 before aftermath and that harp is almost always on biggrin.gif. Decided against it though, I don't want to have to explain getting the same game (that is already despised) on another system that is hooked to our main TV aka the grays anatomy TV.
post #13634 of 16243
Ha. I can't help it..have a bunch of local friends on PS3 that are just as hooked. I'll be rocking the box next week cause I know all you guys will be on. I prefer 360 but have bad luck in catching you guys on there.
post #13635 of 16243
Gotcha. Can you grab the flag from the side of the chopper without ever getting out? Or off the back of the bike?
post #13636 of 16243
I didn't have any luck trying either of those. Had to get out and walk over it to pick it up.

I hear rush is really good on these maps but none if the servers I've been on were running it. Comments I've seen today compared it to BC2. Hope they're right.
post #13637 of 16243
Ha no worries man, just giving you a hard time. I have to work the 12th but should be on that evening and night.

That would be great! BC2 Rush absolutely obliterates BF3's attempt at it.
post #13639 of 16243
BC2 Rush wins. BF3 not so much. I hope your right because I love me some rush!

Some info from mp1st about CTF vehicle flag carrier rules...
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
“This is our Battlefield twist on Capture the Flag – by allowing vehicles to host the flag,” said Mcleod. “Now, you can’t actually pick it up or drop it off while in the vehicle. You need to get out so it has the chance of players to shoot you and to try and stop that. But then, once you have the array of vehicles, do you want to want to use a dirt bike? In which case, it’s fast and you’ll get there much quicker, but you have no armor. Or, do you want to take a tank where you’re a lot more protected, but it’s going to take more time? It’s that kind of risk gameplay that we like to bring in.”

Thinking I had the right idea, I tried picking up a flag carrier in my scout chopper during my play time with End Game, hoping to score him a free ride to our base. That didn’t seem to work out too well.

Mcleod later told me, “It’s only ground vehicles [that can host a flag]. We wanted that because we thought the balance wasnt right when people got into a helicopter. It was just too quick and too easy to actually take [the flag] back.” He added that he wouldn’t be surprised to see some players use jets to capture the flag if DICE gave them the chance. “People are really good at this game.” But, “we wanted to make sure that it stayed on the ground.”

I could see you landing your jet at the flag, hopping out and grabbing it then taking back off and bringing it back. It would be very hard to stop someone that was good in a jet. But then again it would make for some great footage.
post #13643 of 16243
This is funny. I might have to steal an idea from him.


post #13644 of 16243
Believe it or not, I saw that all the time on PC version. Love the smoke rounds at the end!
post #13645 of 16243
So last night I looked for an Armored Shield 500% server and low an behold Lazy's server was full with that exact rotation. And a nice boobie pic to boot.

Not long after a couple of my nemesis showed up. Well actually I've played with one of them quite a bit lately so I actually get along with him. But I hadn't seen the other too much since he kept switching me to the RU side so he could get the US chopper. I switched him one time just for fun but let them stay together on the US side while we were RU. I feel I got redemption because I TV them like 4 times and shot them out with a tank and got them with stingers a couple times, along with regular chopper guns a few times. They sent me messages after the game saying good game. So I guess I can eliminate them from my little list now.

AN EXAMPLE OF THE STUPIDITY OF SOME PEOPLE:

Here we have some written evidence of just how dense some people truly are. I sold a printer on eBay and had to cancel the item because the ink had dried since I listed it. Despite it being sold as-is, I didn't want to stick the poor guy with a crap printer, so I filed to cancel. After sending the buyer some ten emails in a request to confirm the cancellation, along with explicit instructions on eBay's protocol on how to do it, and him getting emails from eBay, then enduring his threats and cursing, (then having him finally hit the cancellation button) here's the last response I got:

"I don't recall getting the material you speak of from eBay. Jesus Christ, what is all the fuss about. Get me my refund, now. You guys are proficient at passing the buck. Show me the eBay sign-off, if there is one. I have never experience so much idiocy in dealing with protocol in getting a simple task done."

Here is my reply:

SARCASM MODE: X [ON] [OFF]

"Sorry you supposedly didn't get the materials from eBay or haphazardly deleted them, as per your comment about mass-deleting emails earlier. As for "all the fuss," perhaps seeking Jesus out in prayer rather than blaspheming in an email to me will provide insight. Your refund has been most expeditiously sent now that you took the 20 seconds to complete the cancellation. It should be noted that you deserve many thanks and accolades on such herculean efforts. No "buck passing" here, just eBay protocol. Since I don't personally make eBay's rules, if you take issue with it, then I suggest you write to eBay and they can address your heartfelt concerns about it. You should be aware that I can't see your computer screen, so I can't show you the "sign off." (Apparently you figured it all out on your own. Kudos!) For what it's worth, I completely agree about the "idiocy" in getting a simple task (you pressing a button) done. Please accept my sincere apologies on the length of time this simple cancellation took and enjoy the refund sent to you just seconds after I received notice of cancellation. I truly wish you the best of luck in all your future transactions. Hopefully, you won't be required to push a button ever again, as it appears this task is incredibly difficult, discombobulating, and daunting for you.

Regards,"


I got an email moments later thanking me profusely for the help and understanding! biggrin.gifeek.gifbiggrin.gifeek.gif

No wonder pubs can't do more complex things, like play BF3 correctly. wink.gif

Uploading a fun match from today. Plus I'm in the process of publishing a narrated video per MPH's request. Note, however, that Windows Movie Maker sucks at recording narrations - for some odd reason, it recorded the sound faster than normal. So when I added narration to my video, suddenly I'm seconds off of what's happening. So I figured out that by slowing the video down to .845x normal speed, I'm 95% on-time with my narration. Be prepared for some funny sounding audio once that thing finally gets posted!

Also, I've read that Air Superiority mode disables Air Radar. So my suggested setup would be:

Maintenance\Stealth
Extinguisher\Flares
Heatseekers (duh)

Maintenance/Extinguisher combo is great for repairing quickly after a disable. Since landing/repairing is out, that's important.

Stealth/Flares is great for dealing with all the pesky lock-ons.

I guess it really depends on how the match is going.
