I think finding games that didn't have the DLC may be tougher than it should be... be prepared to shell out another $15 for the DLC

I just picked this up on bestbuy for 20dollars deal yesterday. As a MW player, is it hard to get in to as a noob?? I hear if either your walking around the huge map looking for fire fights or getting sniped most of the time. Couldn't pass it up at 20bux though.

Are you guys getting this at the store or online? I haven't been by the store yet but would prefer that to ordering online.

LOL, play rush mode... try out the vehicles as that is the biggest difference from COD

Neither is accurate. It's a steal at $20. Congrats.

Chairman, interested in joining my team? We play a healthy mix of conquest rush and deathmatch.

Gonna have to fire this back up now that some people are getting back into it!

My brother and I play this together a few nights a week on separate PS3s. We both started playing the game around Christmas. First we only did TDM. We recently started playing Rush, and now it's all we play.

We mainly play on a 24/7 Kharg Island server, 150 tickets. That and Caspian Border are my two fav maps.

I'm only at level 39, so I'm by no means BAMF at this game, but it's a lot of fun. I usually do fairly well. Except defending with 150 ticketsyou gotta have a pretty solid team. We've pulled it off a few times.

One thing I've noticed after the patch is the sound cutting out in every map during Rush. Sometimes it may be for a minute, others only 15-20 seconds. But not all sounds cut out. I can still hear bullets or rockets whizzing past me, but explosions, shotguns, and vehiclesnothing. Then after awhile, it comes back. Definitely not my receiver, but I do not have DD enabled on PS3everything is bitstreamed to the receiver.

There's also a glitch in the music that plays at the end of each round. Sometimes we'll win, and it'll play the losing music, and vice versa. Sometimes, no music at all.

Then there are times when in-between respawns, I decide to change my class. I change class, respawn, but the options screen does not go away until I die again, which doesn't take long when you can't see anything. Annoying.

Sometimes upon being revived, even when my health is back at 100%, the screen stays black and white.

I think those are the majority of glitches/bugs I've noticed. I usually stick to assault or engineer class. Usually assault when we're attacking, and engineer when we're defending. Occasionally I'll use the recon and support classes just to gain some skill in those areas.

I went ahead and got it for the $20, but after reading the last page or so of how messed up some aspects are, I'm not looking forward to it as much. It's just the server issues I'm talking about. The way you're either stuck in custom games with questionable setups, or your forced into rotating game styles on the official EA servers. Quite a bummer. I won't have time to play it till after the 20th anyway though, so I'll worry about it then. I'm sure I'll get at least $20 worth of fun out of it.

Hell yeah, tell me what I need to do!
post #1302 of 1615
First off did you get a working mic? Its a requirement. Past that, get on our server and give it a try. Just do a search for kyj. Tell some of the kyj guys that I sent you. If you like playing with them then go to www.theguncircus.com and click join and put kyj in the content of the email. We have scrims most sundays and mondays and are trying to get some set up for fridays and saturdays. I'll be on tomorrow night playing. I'll send you an invite.

Maybe I'm just used to MW controls but BF3 controls feels broken. While MW3 controls feels tight and responsive, BF controls feels laggy and not accurate. I know its a different game but its pretty frustrating when the aiming is not responsive for a shooter. Only paid 20bux and amazon will allow me to trade it in for 21bux, I'll give it some serious try this weekend.

in the video options try turning off Anti Aliasing, should make it more responsive.... also, play around with the sensitivity settings.

I only play EA Servers.... they start with P24.... and then 4 or 6 numbers... so P2464892

Those are official servers that don't rotate game types... and they have normal rules.

I played COD straight for 3 years, WAW, MW2, and Black ops, I don't play much on organized teams, and I was sick these turds joining games, killing their on team mates and then bailing, with the popularity of the series, it was getting really bad with Black ops. And don't get me wrong, BF3 has it share of folks trying to kill their on team, I've been run over by jeeps at spawn points, anyway.

Switching to BF3, took some adjustments just as you said, the game just didn't feel right, but what it really is, BF3 is more precise, how many times have you been knifed in COD even though you had the edge and put a few bullet rounds in a guy, won't happen in BF3, your also not going to get many kills shooting from the Hip, you have to aim down the sites. You need to throw everything you did out the window from COD. You need to work with your team, especially on rush and conquest, the best part about the series is the size of the maps, after awhile you get kind of board running around the same 3 square blocks in COD.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking COD,the only commonality is they are both FPS, the game play is completely different.

Give it a few weekends, and you'll be hooked. Was the limited edition selling for $20 with the back to kirkland maps? That's a steal.

Yeah, maybe it's just not for you.

did some digging.

http://www.vg247.com/2012/04/26/batt...-quarters-dlc/

“Input lag has been a really hard thing for us to fix, but in the Close Quarters expansion pack we’re actually fixing it,” he said. “I didn’t want to bring it up as a feature, but we are improving it quite significantly, and hopefully players who have felt it before will feel the difference, that it feels much snappier and gives better feedback, so we’re definitely listening.


REally after over 6months after a game is launched they're patching it. Thanks EA.

Thanks for that info! I tried to play this again a week or so ago, and I was a bit bewildered by all the custom servers...just wanted to play standard. I didn't know so many people were renting servers. EA must be making out pretty well on that.

My team decided to make a snipers paradise server with a 1500 ticket conquest on gulf of oman. I ended up with 3 upgrades on attack choppers and 2 on jets. Our guys were sniping from the aircraft carrier. The other team realized this and started landing on the boat. So I started dropping c4 all down the runway. They were pissed but it was hillarious.

lol, that sounds like those must have been some fun matches, even if they took up the whole night.
post #1315 of 1615
Hey everyone... I have been playing for a month or so, starting to get the hang of it and building up my stats... those large ticket matches do help :-)

Anyone have pointers on flying? For the life of me I just cannot fly a jet in any direction but straight and eventually into the ground haha.
post #1316 of 1615
Watch some of the how to's on youtube. They are pretty helpful. As far as basic flying, try to find a conquest on gulf of oman with no one else in the server. You can fly around as much as you want. Get used to using the rudder (left stick) a lot. That helps with minor adjustments and also can help maintain a good turn. Get to know when to use your flares. I usually wait a couple seconds after I am locked to if they shoot both missles at you it will mess with both of them. Also while flying be sure your afterburner is off. Easier to acquire targets like that.

I put some good time in to this... I'm enjoying this bit more than MW3 so far. Aiming and hit box is broken, I know the patch is coming... frustrating making headshots and it does nothing! Matches have bigger epic feel about them where MW3 feels like a giant laser tag with bunch of tight quarters. The sound effects are much better than MW. Playing team death matches, think the vehicles feel like a after thought and just be kicked out of the game imo. Can't wait till they fix this aiming issue then I can sell mw3.

It is? I've never thought this. If I aim at a guy (accurately) and shoot, it registers.

What else is it supposed to do?

EA even admitted this its broken, its only affected on the ps3. Play some matches on mw3 and jump on to bf. Aiming is broken. If you've always been playing it broken, you've probably gotten used to it.
