Battlefield 3 - Page 458

Your money, but is it really worth the extra $35 to get it early?
post #13712 of 16243
yeah I know that's my problem. Though after talking with Spyder for a little bit, I think I'll just wait a couple weeks smile.gif

Same as Tank Superiority. Vehicles are only special until everybody has one.

Even the best pilots will get rammed, ran into by blueberries, and cheat-seeked by comlete noobs that do nothing more than fly low and wait to see a flare. Extinguisher is useless. ECM is still a DICE roll joke. Flares work about 50% of the time correctly. mad.gif

The funny thing is that once I took heat-seekers OFF and just went to guns, I started kicking ass. It also helps to not worry if you take objectives or win or lose the match. Same as any other game of BF3, no good deed goes unpunished. frown.gif

(That said, rookie pilots can get a ton of points off objectives. Our top point guys went 0-and-something more than once. smile.gif)

I'm right there with ya buddy.

I can still get first with no kills. For me the main goal is to win and if capping is what gets it done then that's what I need to do. Even if I don't get any kills I'm not one to complain about my kdr over it. The big W is what I'm going after.

I don't mind the mode, liked it a lot more in the beginning but now that more and more people are using beam scanning its getting annoying. Heat seekers don't bother me to much but when you are locked on by the time you hear the tone it really sucks. The mode will be a nice toss in for a game in a large map rotation.
post #13716 of 16243
Oh yeah, I'll be jumping on soon
post #13717 of 16243
Well it would be more like $35-$15=$20 extra right? Plus he is going on a trip to Europe when that 2 weeks arrives. IDK, if I were you I'm not sure I could wait.

I like all the new maps and all the new modes. Air Superiority is great for us Jet noobs because we can basically double our total jet flight experience time in just a few games. I really like it because I feel I am getting better in Jets each round of Air Superiority that I play. I actually liked using Extinguisher. I also used Stealth, after trying Maintenance for a while.

I played all 4 maps on Rush, and I think they might be some of the best Rush maps yet. There are no Jets for Rush, but 3 out of the 4 maps have Attack Helis on Each side, and the other one has Scouts.

I think over time the Capture the Flag games are going to get better as people learn how to play the maps. I was somewhat confused with all the icons in the beginning...not knowing which flag was which.

Good stuff. Getting back on now.
post #13718 of 16243
Just logged off, but I'll be back on after I eat.

I like Air Superiority... fun times even though it's flying.

Started the last game by going 1-9, but ended up going positive with 37 kills biggrin.gif

Yeah I was messing with that site when I was in the party with everyone. I gave up when my TigerDirect order didn't go through. Apparently, they ran out of stock just in time to annoy me.

fun games tonight

CTF is still confusing but real fun, never played on battlefield before and works well. And the railroad and pipeline maps were really good for Rush, has that BC2 feel to it. Can see myself playing these maps alot, didn't even get to try out Conquest yet so def want to check them out also.
post #13723 of 16243
Out of all the map packs the last 2 are my favorite. I like Armored Kill, but the biggest downfall is the lack of vehicles for such big maps. End Game did it right. You go to any flag and there are at least 3 dirtbikes and maybe another vehicle or 2. They should of had the ATV's the same way. Close Quarters, we all know the issue there - 16 players max. I am not a fan of Karkland, I dont mind them but I could pass on those maps and never really care.

I really did like MPH's map rotation last night. I was thinking of setting up a CTF only rotation at 100% but with 2 rounds, I still think thats how it should of been set up. I can already see some maps have an advantage of being on a certain side. I know my squad always saw me on the enemys flag side on a certain map, to easy when there is a shack at a good distance to place a spawn beacon. No parachuting in is a big difference maker and on our side of that map there is no where to do it where we couldnt hear it. I'll be on tonight, hopefully I'll catch most of you again.

Air Superiority: Lots of heat seeking, some guns, and I slam into the ground twice during the game without dying - fast forward to 13:30 if you want to see the second crash and proof I had an indestructible jet.

What the?


I knew you were cheating last night
post #13726 of 16243
That's hilarious! Ace Combat has glitches like that all the time. Good thing you were using extinguisher. And LOL at the Flanker who also got stuck!
post #13727 of 16243
Looks like something MPH would post to coincide with his ability to waltz into a pack of dudes that just let him stab them one at a time over and over again. wink.gif

Or, like the video that snake put up where he kept crashing into buildings with the little bird. Hell, I even look at a light pole and the thing explodes on me! eek.gif

Some of us are just born lucky.
post #13729 of 16243
Forgot all about "End Game" ...will download after work..

I hope its exciting, after Close Quarters the DLC has been just decent.
post #13730 of 16243
Zath, wait to get end game. In a couple of weeks all the noobs will be gone and then only the true flight junkies will be flying.

Before last night i had maybe 20 min in jets. I only had heatseekers and flares unlocked. I played 2 rounds of air superiority with 800 tickets last night and now I am 1200 pts from beam scanner and then ECM. I went 3-30 in the first match and 9-34 in the second match and was still 2nd or 3rd in points on my team each time. About half of my deaths were from ground impacts. I am a terrible pilot but improved after a while and was getting kills with guns. Capping the objectives is still where the points are. If you still need jet kills, now is the time to play though before all the suckers are gone.

This will be an absolutely horrible game mode for anyone but the worst of the plane junkies. There are so many planes that no matter what you do, the worst flier has a chance of taking you down since there are heatseakers flying EVERYWHERE. I know, cause I was able to take out the top pilots every once and a while. Noob tactic... wait until you see someone pop flares or ECM and then close as soon as possible and launch.Just like spyder said. I will get my last 2 unlocks, maybe stick around long enough to get the maveric dog tag and then I will probably never touch this game mode again.

I hope none of the new maps need jet pilots since we will probably never see a decent pilot in regular games ever again.
post #13731 of 16243
Oh yeah, play as engineer as the engineer kills will go towards one of the new assignments. ONLY perk of choosing a class while in this game mode.
post #13732 of 16243
im uploading 3 air superiority games on youtube, its going to take about an hour for the first one to upload. I tend to have mixed games depending on how many people are in the server, less people = less heat seekers = me doing better. 2 of the videos are me playing with randoms and I ran into some beam scanning heat seeker combos. I think I'm finally going to take a page out of spyder's book and not even equip heatseekers. Not trying to be noble or anything, I use heatseekers in some of the videos, but in the end I'm not going to use them anymore, ultimately I want to improve my skills with guns.

Zath, if I were you I'd wait to get the map pack. The most fun I had was playing CTF and rush with you guys. It was hilarious to always see Lazy in the enemy base creepin around.

I have a bunch more CTF games that I will upload sometime soon.
post #13733 of 16243
Trail, that's exactly what's started happening in the PS3 AS matches according to some threads I'm following. At first it's heatseeker heaven but then it eventually dies down to mostly guns.
post #13734 of 16243
Liking what I see so far. Did a quick CTF match and AS match. Downloaded one big patch last night and what I thought was the second install to download and let it get to 20% or so and turned off the Xbox. Today I have everything. So it was all either in one patch or I magically finished the download for the second somehow. Either way, this looks awesome!

Hapi, that was freaking hilarious.
post #13736 of 16243
Oh yeah Zath, I don't know if anyone told you yet or if its been posted, but no jets in CTF. I think every map has a scout helo though and one map has the attack helo.

I also find myself running into the ground more often in AS trying to get below radar to work, or just plain/plane maneuvering.
post #13737 of 16243
Hahaha. Nice vid happi biggrin.gif
post #13738 of 16243
Whos playing tonight? Ive decided to go in late tomorrow so I should be playing later than 11 tonight.


Trail, instead of not killing and capping flags on AS, I am stealing flags and not killing on CTF. I would literally watch the enemies all set up mines and take off. Then I would sneak up and steal the flag with my dirt bike in the back corner waiting for me. That one game where MPH and Shiles was on the other team, thats all I did, kind of felt bad after awhile. I did notice on one game we played what the enemy did. They would have someone waiting with another dirt bike in the middle of the map just in case the first got javelined. Not a bad idea and one time he had to run back with the flag and then hopped on the dirt bike when he reached it. I followed him to see his plan, I eventually spoiled his plans but not a bad idea.
post #13739 of 16243
I also read that throwing a health pack on the back of a dirtbike helps survivability. Or you could put an ammo crate on it and some claymores to make it a medusa bike.
post #13740 of 16243
I'll be on tonight, sometime after 9 or so. I joined on MPH and Nexus while they were playing AS. I got my jet service star from capping flags. I Can't say it was horrible, kinda fun actually. It's strange that I got more kills using the guns instead of the (c)heat seekers.
