Lo has been locking up quite a bit in PS land. Just had my first. Been tossed out of several matches though.

Can't wait for BC3! It's going to show BF players how it's REALLY done. smile.gif

Almost forgot, gadget one is left pad, gadget two right in case you want paddles or ammo on the other side.

Yeah, I just had my third freeze of the evening shortly after yours and decided to pack it up and call it a night. Between the hit detection issues, the fact I'm an easy one-hit kill, a few lag instances and the constant freezing, the PS3 BF4 Beta experience has been more frustration than enjoyment for me.

Oh and one more thing that's bothering me...The Roof Campers!

Running out of an elevator to a whole team of roof campers just sitting there waiting to spray an elevator at Flag B once it opens... Wish we had commander mode in the Beta. I would fire 15 Tomahawk missiles right into that rooftop...

I'm amazed how much damage RPGs do now. I got OHK'd from one last night when I was like 80% health thanks to others w/320s.

Also I was looking at the jet unlocks. I like the fact that now you have to guide the missiles into their targets (passive air-air/air-ground). I'm a little leery of the later unlock (active air-air). Sounds like all you have to do is shoot a missile in the direction of an enemy and it locks on itself. Air Sup BF4 anyone?! Though the gun enhancements are something I can definitely get behind. 30mm cannons are fun.

I am setting up a new account for PSN, my plus runs out soon and I dont want my old name anymore. I dont see Sony allowing name changes anytime soon. Just trying to decide on a name now, I hate not being able to use spaces.

Nex and I were discussing last night how it seems damage is much higher in BF4. As I mentioned a few posts up, I noticed that I'm suffering numerous OHK deaths not only from RPG's but from all weapons as well, no matter the range. I've had a few instances where I've gone straight to the killcam before realizing I was even shot. I've gone so far to ask Nex if he knew if we had joined a hardcore server.

Lo I'm not sure why you had so many issues, last night felt a lot better, till I locked up that is. I fixed my server filters to US only so I think that helps quick matches. Didn't hear Spanish or Japanese so I think we were at least in this country for each match. Holy crap the last couple days sucked. It is in every sense of the word a beta so it may just be crappy code amplified by your wireless setup. Pst, run a wire. :sly:

Currently I'm running my PS3 connection through a set of these:

This is as close as I'll ever have to a legitimate wired connection based on my given internet situation.

Speaking of killcam, I really hate it.

Getting an orange silhouette of my killer is just so impersonal. BF3 was nice in that killers become more intimately connected to their prey. So much so that when I'd demolish someone in the air, they'd go after me time and again. The game was out of their minds at that point. In this one, all we see is an orange blob that may be so far away that we don't even notice it. Half the fun is trying to take down the guy that keeps killing you. That's gone now.

Just called GameStop and they offer $60 for my launch x360. However the cheap azz USB door on the front cover is gone, therefore subtract $25. WTF!

How are those lodol? My new house I only have one wired connection. I'm going wireless for gaming now. I'd like to hardwire but the only way is run 50FT of Ethernet up the stairwell to the loft, not gonna fly..

I think they've worked out pretty well. I don't drop out of games as much as I used to and I think my faster connection has improved my game overall. The one thing I've noticed most is that downloading speeds on the PS3 have been improved drastically. Like night and day different. Downloading a few gigs on the PS3 before would take like 10 to 12 hours. Now they take less than an hour.

I'd say if you were going to resort to wireless by all means give them a shot. Anything is better than wifi especially from 50 ft away which is about the same distance from my router to my family room setup. I picked up my set at my local TigerDirect for $40. Well worth it.

This is what I use for all over the house: http://www.amazon.com/Sling-Media-SlingLink-Powerline-SL200-100/dp/B000NJ5VLQ

Never had a single issue with them.* smile.gif

*Other than typical lag on crappy east coast BF servers...although most of the time we have 3 Xboxes running at once, my wife is downloading free games on PSN, my son has his laptop on, my computer is doing work, and whatever else is running at the moment. Still, I like having the 4 ports on the receiving end of each box and only one tiny box to hook up to the modem. cool.gif

Last night on the 360 I would finish a match then it would freeze. Also, early on I would time out looking for a servers? Then unrelated, my PJ just turned off and a blinking red light eek.gif. I was like WTF. Luckily it was just too hot I guess, first time that ever happened.

The 12 v 12 just sucks anymore, knowing that 32 v 32 is so close. Not a huge fan of the map as it plays on 12 v 12, I actually prefer playing domination as there is just a little more action.

Also, is anyone staying on the XBONE, or is pretty much everyone jumping ship?

make sure you blow out your air filter ASAP!

Also, I like running my pj on high altitude mode. It causes the fan to run faster. Faster fan = more air = cooler internals = longer life = happy zath

I took the filter out right away and it was clean. I banged it on a hard surface and nothing came out. The lamp only has 750 hours on it. It was strange.

What kind do you have?
post #16102 of 16243
Since the beta is now open and available on all consoles, you guys with PS3's should download the PS3 version so you can hook up with both Nex and I.

BTW, where's MPH been lately? Haven't seen him post in a while...

MPH is in South Carolina on vacation.

I might be on tonight on the PS3 side. I sent you a friend request with my new name. I plan on preordering BF4 and get PSN+ tonight wait for my $20 credit then use that to purchase premium. I think thats the only game I will go digital with. Every other game I to play will be for single player and I can least trade those back in.

Sounds good Lazy. Received and accepted your Friend request already.

Don't forget to save one of those $10 coupons for the BF4 PS4 $9.99 upgrade as well...

My projector is an Epson Pro Cinema 1080UB.

I'm intending on downloading the beta after my PS3 updates again.

hit me up on PSN Lord_Zath
or hit me up on battlelog Lord_Zath2 (PC)

Which one are you? I've got a couple from Diablo so not sure which is yours.
post #16109 of 16243
Nevermind, yours wasn't on my list for whatever reason but I saw Lo's acceptance of yours so I shot you one.
