Battlefield 3 - Page 539

post #16141 of 16243
This thread on Reddit confirms what I have been speculating: the console beta version is much older code than the PC beta.

Source: http://www.reddit.com/r/battlefield_4/comments/1nteuo/beta_differences_is_the_x360ps3_version_the_same/

I am not enjoying this beta much. As Spyder said unless we are all going to play and do some trolling etc. I think I will not invest too much time into it. Looking forward to the real game though. I think it will rock especially on next gen. biggrin.gif

MPH home. Gonna watch the Bengals lose to the Patriots then check out beta at some point.

I hope the Bengals lose but I am not to sure. Your defense is a little banged up but our WR cant catch. I am hoping Amendola ends up playing.

Would have been on last night but some idiot decided to save a few bucks and install his own water heater...yea lesson learned there. I think I'm good now but 12 hours was too much effort for too little gain.


That is true, MPH was the person to distract us the most. I didnt realize it either till he mentioned it.

I did check to see if anyone was online but no one was. I might try some Domination out.

Thanks, I think I will need a 56 ft. HDMI cable with my new TV and thats a bargain at only $2750, almost the cost of the TV. I might even have some Best Buy points I can redeem to help with that cost.

No but serious, do people actually spend that kind of money on cables? I know people that spend double on Monster but $2750? Same size cable on monoprice is like $50. I feel I should contact monoprice about opening up some stores all right next door to Best Buy's. Sometimes I am surprised at what people spend. I sold a gold iphone on ebay for $1400 and I still cant believe someone was willing to spend that much money for one. I felt like Spyder preying on the "status" people. Hey, now your name makes a little sense.

Funny Amazon reviews of high priced cables, if you have never happened upon them before:

Man, does CBS always show sideline shots of Tom Brady this much during a game. It's like watching the XBone reveal with the word "TV" being said over and over and over again, only it's just video of Brady on the sideline just sitting on the bench or something.

Tom Brady, Tom Brady, Tom Brady Tom Brady...and for Call of Duty...Tom Brady, Tom Brady, Tom Brady.

Pipe down, you got your win.
post #16146 of 16243
just tried bf4 pc 64 man conquest. It had different cap points and other vehicles but I didn't get the feeling that it was so much better than my experience on console.

Joined up with harp but had another crash while in the chopper (like when I was in the PS3). ugh.
post #16147 of 16243
Zath, was it Seige of Shanghai?

I haven't played the beta yet (downloading xbox 360 now), but with all the footage I have seen, that map just does not impress / interest me too much it seems.
post #16148 of 16243
played some more. yeah it's definitely better on pc but mainly because of the vehicles. still a lot of stupid bs going on.

OH and the assault boat is just stupid OP. You'll definitely want to whore it up right away when the game launches to take advantage of its OPness.
post #16149 of 16243
Yeah mph it's Shanghai. I shot 3 choppers out of the sky with the tank. Whee!

I do think the limited ammo in vehicles idea is nice. It means you can't dominate quite as easily as you used to be able to in previous games.

Uh...hello? Of course they kept showing Tom Brady over and over again. Just like those expensive cables can alter time and space, it appears that the Bungles can do a rain dance that makes it only dumps buckets from Hell for 2 minutes while the Pats have the ball on offense, then magically go away. Tom was just over on the sideline praying, but alas, he's no Tebow.

Had a really decent game going until somehow my system decided to "lose connection to session" with the opposition having 12 tickets remaining. My team ended up winning and I would have won the MVP for the match too....Oh well.

We've got a PS3/PS4 list going on the BF4 PS forum for those plunging to the dark side.

The other couple of you sticking to the xbone already know each other biggrin.gif (sorry, couldn't resist) biggrin.gif

No more free xbox live accounts. See you all on the next gen console!

There is sort of a neutral zone where people could post threads about cross platform games and keep it all in one place, but it doesn't seem like anyone knows it exists.

I am pretty sure you listed where this area is, but where is it exactly? Also where can we partition the mods to allow a universal section for all platforms regarding BF4, as I think you mentioned that somewhere as well but I couldn't find that post?


FYI, Attack Choppers are completely nerfed for the BF4 beta. After the gunner burns through his initial few clips or whatever you want to call it, there is like a 40 second delay for them to reload again. Pretty frustrating when staring point blank at 10 infantry up on the skyscraper flag.

Oh and just watched a LevelCap video where a Tank shell only damaged the Attack Chopper and he was able to land it and get out. The Tank was pretty much point blank too. LevelCap was laughing pretty hard.

I think all vehicles are nerfed during the beta so as to not scare off the non Battlefield crowd. Hopefully they buff them at launch or soon after.

It's the root of the home theater gaming forum. You're kind of proving my point for me. tongue.gif

There's a separate forum way at the bottom of the list for "forum operations."
post #16156 of 16243
Yeah MPH, I posted about it but it doesnt seem like we will get it. So just keep double posting on each side.

BF4 beta trolling on the 360 today?
post #16158 of 16243
Well after just dreadful attempts at BF3 and BF4 beta Helicopter flying on my pc with keyboard and mouse, I decided to try using my USB 360 controller. By the time I downloaded the drivers, the BF4 beta was over.

So I tried in in BF3. It took a few times because it had been weeks since I had flown. But I then decided just to stop being so aggressive and try to just not die. Once I did this I felt like I dominated the match.

It was also the first time I had used the attack chopper on the amored kill map Death Valley (the night map). My team got pushed back to only a flag or two. But after a couple of really good runs I had we capped all the flags. It was a good domination, and honestly I kind felt like I was one of the main reasons why.

http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/battlereport/show/1/70559580/

By the way, Death Valley is just an awesome map for the Attack Chopper. You can always dip down the steep drop off to the river.

I do feel like, for one reason or another, that I just haven't seen good heli pilots like you see on the 360. Honestly I think it is not possible to do the same maneuvers with a k/b mouse that you can do with a 360 controller. IDK, but the piloting of heli's just doesn't seem to be found on pc like I have seen on the 360.

Well, I guess this thread is pretty much dead.

I'm going to be trying to find a way to get a PS4 from Best Buy since I have some gift cards there.

I enjoyed playing with you all. It was a blast.

I haven't had any time to try and make some videos with my new pc. When I do, I think I will try to make a long montage of us playing BF3 on 360.

I'm still wondering what you're doing trying to fly the damn thing. Do what you do best; shoot the cheap-azz TV missle all day...you know, the vehicular equivalent of camptastic sniping. tongue.giftongue.giftongue.gif
post #16160 of 16243
Well I have to unlock it first. Funny I was wondering if Below Radar didn't work on pc like it does on 360. Then I realized I hadn't unlocked it yet.

Actually for a while now I've had to resort to just flying choppers myself. That's what happens when you can't get anybody to fly you around.

I just played another game tonight. I died a lot and the controls seemed slower or laggier than I remember from that last match I posted. I guess I got the hang of it again, but it took several attempts. The Jet pilots were a little better this time around, and so were the camping stingerers. Still though, MVP 2.

http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/battlereport/show/1/70622759/362598461/

Funny thing actually is it is really hard to get a gunner into the chopper, and then to stay in there. Kind of a head scratcher for me.
post #16161 of 16243
mph I'll join you on bf3 pc.

BF4 beta is over? Cool now I can delete it!

Controller is always superior to mouse/keyboard in vehicles. Did you try flying a jet with wasd and mouse? Your right arm will feel like you've been ... all day!
post #16162 of 16243
^LOL
post #16163 of 16243
I'll join you on BF3 PC too. I find heli pilots are less dominant due to the additional players and vehicles. A map like Kharg on PC has you contending with multiple stingers, jets, attack chopper, little bird, CITV's, and an AA. Tough staying up with all that.
post #16164 of 16243
Get yourself a joystick to fly helis on pc. I doubt you'll ever want to use a gamepad again.

post #16165 of 16243
I played a lot today. Yeah it can be difficult to say the least. Just depends on the competition from what I have found, I guess.

I didn't think I did all that well, like almost every match, but still ended up top 5 or 6 in the match almost every game. So it is a little perplexing.

I got my first heli service star, so TV Missile is unlocked.eek.gif So is below radar.mad.gif

I really didn't get much of an opportunity to use the TV but a few times I did pretty good against the ground vehicles that I went for. Struck out on all of my air shots, which was only like 4-5 though.

The TV seems tricky but intuitive.

As a pilot, man your going up against like so much stuff, besides the lock on stuff. TV missiles coming at you, tank shells, canister shells, rpgs, and of course jet guns. I mean each team gets like 5-6 tanks it seems like. Well of course throw an the always there mobile AA gun. Several times I was shocked by a Jeep rolling straight up to me because it seemed like he was flat out doing serious damage to me. I ran once thinking it was a AA right in my face. Throw in all the lock-on crap and it gets pretty hairy for 40-60 player matches.

I think the only way I haven't died in a chopper so far is from a crossbow.
post #16166 of 16243
So you died from a knife w/bipod? wow!
post #16167 of 16243
No not yet at least.

I've had some snipers get some hits on me, but they've yet to snipe me out of the choppers.

I've not been c4 out of the chopper either.

I've been rammed a few times of course.

And the gunship has got me a couple times as well.

I've crashed more times than I can count though.
post #16168 of 16243
Just got another free month of Live! OH YEAH!
post #16169 of 16243
Nice, at least I'll have one other person to play with.

Figured I'll be the only one playing on a 360 from here on out. I'm going to ride this one out until it unofficially dies Nov 15th @ 12:00AM.

I will be playing BF4 on the 360 until the XBone drops. Not sure who, if anyone else will be, or on the XBone either. Also, I am now on the West coast, HoosierInCA would be a better GT now.
