Battlefield 3 - Page 467

chivalry looks absolutely hilarious
post #13982 of 16243
Okay, so BF3 Premium members do indeed get access to BF4 beta. Found that information here...http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/news/view/2925730253849551391/

"Join the exclusive Battlefield 4 Beta
We are also happy to announce the upcoming exclusive Battlefield 4 Beta. There are a number of ways to get into this Beta: By pre-ordering the Battlefield 4 Digital Deluxe Edition on Origin.com, by being a Battlefield 3: Premium member, and by being a registered owner of Medal of Honor Warfighter Limited Edition or Digital Deluxe Edition. We will have more information on the exclusive Battlefield 4 Beta at a later date."

And I guess i was confused. I just figured that the xbox 720 would be out by the time of BF4. But it looks like now people are leaning towards it coming out at least a couple months after the release of BF4? Huh. I don't know if I would want to buy it for the 360 and then for the 720. I might have to look more seriously into PC, which I had kind of quit thinking about. Hmmm. This could get ugly.

Same, if it doesn't coincide I'll for sure have it on PC then pick it up for nextgen to play with everyone.

Wondering where you been man. I'd thought you'd be all over these maps since choppers are in every one.

I'm hoping next gen coincides w bf4. I really don't want to buy a gaming pc and a gaming mouse.

And girls in the game? Sure.

I also like the compass. It's already rumored that there will be no females in MP. Ridiculous.

Haha HYPNOSNAKE SHALL BRING YOU ALL TO PC LAND.

Zath chivalry is hilarious, its much more about the shenanigans then anything else. There is something VERY satisfying about throwing a javelin into someones head at a distance.

I know trail, I haven't even downloaded the DLC between how busy I"ve been and damn PC. I've got the pc ran t

I'm close to pulling the trigger on Tomb Raider, but I'm hesitant to not having played it in roughly 15yrs. I seem to remember it getting less like a shooter and more like an RPG/adventure. Was a lot of fun once you got those duel uzis...

Hah i Miss the uzi's and being able to dive off of anything into anything. Its pretty damn good I think. Infinite will win game of the year and tomb raider will be up there, they are both that good (so far). I feel like i completely got a steal getting them for "free" with my vid card.
I've been playing them with a controller on my tv through my setup so its basically like playing on console but higher fps and better graphics(rawr).

I keep getting my BF itch but in the little time I have I always get caught up on pc =(

Wal-Mart's offering a copy of BF3 with BF4 preorder.

GMG is hilarious with their deals sometimes!
post #13994 of 16243
Would bf3 get shipped when bf4 shipped for walmart's deal?
post #13995 of 16243
no idea. Very confusing. Plus they call the free DLC "premium dlc", which is confusing the hell out of a lot of people. Why don't they just cut to the chase and say "BUY OUR STUFF!"

Anyone up for some Air Superiority in about an hour? biggrin.gif:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:eek:biggrin.gif
post #13997 of 16243
Ha, I think I'm the ONLY avs'r that actually plays on AS servers these days.
post #13998 of 16243
Figures!
post #13999 of 16243
I can understand how the constant lock tones and midair collisions frustrate people, but if you can get past that and into a bit of a rhythm, then it's a ton fun.

I dont mind it that much. I cant handle a 24 hour server of it but a few games tossed into the rotation is fine with me.
post #14001 of 16243
I'll try to hop on in couple of hours.
post #14002 of 16243
I'll try and get a few games in tonight

Edit: ain't gonna happen tonight. Zath, let us know what you think. I would like to play AS as a squad and try some tactics

post #14004 of 16243
First match - http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/battlereport/show/2/81210763/201671298/

Second match - http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/battlereport/show/2/81215224/201671298/

Third match - http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/battlereport/show/2/81217897/201671298/

So far I'm liking it. Videos uploading of 1st and 2nd match so you can see my learning curve. Also uploading a 3rd and 4th match with AVS friends.

My setup - Stealth, Extinguisher, Guded

Stealth for that extra few seconds to evade a lock
Extinguisher for stayin' alive
Guided Missile to piss people off so they know they were killed by guns PLUS spotting from a distance
post #14005 of 16243
Damn, I just missed like all you guys. Oh well.

Okay Zath, so tell us your impressions. Are those matches you posted your first matches since vacation? Rusty I guess?

Damn you and Shiles are close to getting your buckets.

I've actually only played a handful of AS matches. After the first day I think I have only played one or two more. (As a matter of fact I have just kind of been burnt out a little...go figure.)

I've been playing Rush aftermath. I dont bother with the AVS server bc I know it's mostly conquest or air maps. BTW, I cant cant cant stand firestorm. I've never hated a map so much.

I thought I was the only one, I quit servers when that map comes up. I wear my "I HATE OPERATION FIRESTORM" badge with pride. I will be giving out badges for Air Superiority soon.
post #14009 of 16243
Why the hate for Firestorm? As a pilot, I love its large area of flat land - perfect for landing and repairing. At the same time, I always felt that the flags are close together so a good ground game can win the match easily. There's a plethora of vehicles, and it's the only map I know of with both transport and attack choppers on both sides (which lends itself to too many people in the sky).

As for Air Superiority, here's my thoughts:

1. Heat seekers are a PITA but there's a huge difference in that I'm not really seeing people "dumping" their missiles at the last possible second to get the guaranteed kill through flares. I think it's partially because the ranges are so much closer.

2. People still suck at turning. A good pilot who can turn fast (maintaining 300-310) can evade missiles and evade the missile lock. As soon as I hear the lock-on tone, I immediately try to break off and start turning tightly left or right. That's typically enough to get the missile n00bs off my tail. Stealth helps give me that extra second or two of evasive time.

3. Despite no ejection, people still find a way to rob you of a kill by going to the menu and selecting suicide. So stupid.

4. Heat seekers are great for stealing kills. I do all the work to disable someone and BAM a missile finishes the guy off. Oh, well.

5. Moving in packs definitely helps. I prefer not to loiter around the flags, though, as that attracts too much attention. You'll also see that I like to go low as soon as I spawn in. With the paint schemes of the planes, I'm starting to think low for Flanker/Russian, high for Hornet/American.

6. No one spots.

Ha, yes you're very good communicator, I know exactly where you stand.

Here's a match from last week where I go 14-2 heat seeking the **** out of people:





Fast forward to last night, when I hopped back on to play AS:

http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/battlereport/show/2/81249435/256807859/

Not a ton of competition in that match so I chilled on the heat seekers and used mostly guns that game.

I played on an AS server last week that was "NO HEAT SEEKERS". Of course people still used 'em, but it seemed like the admins were regulating pretty well. So those of you bothered by heat seekers (everyone) - you're not alone.
