Glad I came across the thread, while I'll admit, I completely suck, the style of play required for BF3 is so much more complex than COD. While I'm loving BF3, this is my first game in the series, I can appreciate the simplicity of COD, I'm a working professional, and I like to get a few rounds in to decompress from the day or week, let out some steam, right, with COD, I can get in 6-8 matches kill a bunch of 8 years old, and be done in an hour. But with BF you need a least 2 hours, and that's just to get started and get on a good team, 4 hours later, it's 2am, I need to get to bed, my kids are going to wake me at 6:30.

I've not invested the cash yet for MW3, but I may have too, I'm staying up late playing BF3, lol.

On a side note, my PS3 is hanging after installing the latest patch, 3 times last night, right after being killed, my PS3 just freezes. Have to do a forced shutdown, and this is after the patch didn't down load correctly the first, time and I had to reinstall the complete game, expansion pack, etc.

If they have IRNV on you stand out like crazy. It's hard to miss people.

I'll have to play tonight and see if I notice the difference. I just read that besides fixing the mic issues, the patch nerfed the USAS-12 shotgun.

It seems they have messed up this game in several ways. Used to if you picked a quick match at random you would get in a game that just started. Now most are close to the end of a match. Not only that it seemed that before the upgrade the teams were pretty even. I was just playing a match that had 9 colonols on the other team all highly ranked. They were very highly skilled with vehicles. Especially helicopters. Their team finished the entire caspian border map on rush in about 5 minutes. I got one kill which was 1/4 of all the kills for my 12 man team. That's right out of 12 guys we had 4 kills total! Stinger doesn't work on planes apparently.

Where do we make our complaints? It just seems like its changed a lot and not for the better. I didn't read anything about all these changes.

I'm pretty new to BF3...I'm having a blast except there seems to be something "wrong" with the USAS-12...I haven't unlocked it yet but it appears anyone who has is using it and I'm getting gunned down quickly from "miles away"...and even through concrete barriers and 2 layers of train car walls...

Stinger is useless on planes, they literally outrun the thing. They also rock timers to instantly blow up you plane so it's impossible to take off. Add in some rocket pods and tanks become death traps as well lol. Stick to plane free maps IMO.

You can't even lock on anymore. Pretty crappy.

I have thought the same thing. I don't think they changed anything with it. Fine by me. I'm getting closer to level 43 to unlock it. Should be there in a week or so.

Yeah we were. That was the worst team I have played against in a while.
post #972 of 1615
I just started looking around at all my weapons and tried a couple that I haven't messed with before. Man I should have! The qbb-95 and mg36 are awesome! Come standard with bipod and 12x scope. You can lay down fire from a long distance. You guys should try them out if you have them.

I'm thinking about renting BF3 as I get motion sick playing any of these type games. The only one I don't get dizzy playing is BF1943 maybe because the graphics aren't that realistic. Anybody else have that problem?

What if you laser designate and put the Javelin to them? You almost need two people with stingers at fairly close range to take down a jet; one to get it to deploy its flares, then the other to fire before they come back online.

My biggest complaint is that BF3 is supposed to be about working together, but most people approach it like it is COD and they are just after kills. No one seems to want to paint targets or even wait for a gunner for the attack helicopter to jump in before they take off. You can do some serious damage in a hunter/killer team and still end up as an MVP. I like the Assignments as they try to force people to work together a bit more, but once it unlocks they seem to revert. I bought BF3 to tide me over until MW3 came out, I played it for a couple of hours, was so frustrated with the people I think I've played it about 5 times since. BF3 is by far the better game.

I normally use SOFLAM, but NEVER exepting one time somebody carries Javelin, and when I have Javelin NOBODY has SOFLAM, sucks

you stop complaining and play the game. all this whining is what ruined the game in the first place. they change something to make a certain group of people happy and that change in turn pisses off a different group of people. the ability to patch technical issues with a game is nice. but i think it's getting out of hand with all of this rebalancing.

Yea it works great if people are using soflam or the 3rd spot in the tank. Works great with guided shells as well but nobody locks on so I use canisters now.

I'm talking about things that are actually messed up in the game and not some opinion on how they should change the dynamic of the game. I'm guessing with all the playing you're doing you didn't bother to read the first paragraph of that post. Or any other of my posts. Do you think that repeatedly spawning without a weapon is ok? Or maybe random team placement apparently being thrown out the window is ok with you also?

I'm maybe the only one who doesn't mind the usas-12 with the frag round and I haven't even got a chance to unlock it yet. Maybe you should stop playing for a few minutes and actually read before you start whining about people's comments about errors created by the patch.

I was sniping guys at 300 yards with the USAS 12 frag. Crazy.
As far as I've read, DICE may not even nerf it at all.
The patch the other day is supposed to be mic fix, haven't heard anything else included but I guess thay may have changed something.
Can't hardly wait for new maps. Great game. I finally unlocked heat seekers and stealth for jets!
post #981 of 1615
USAS-12 is ruining the game for me and the way how the teamdeath match was setup afterwards. i have not touched the game in 6 till 7 weeks now.

i really liked how BF3 started out, played well over 100 hours of it. but i really dislike how people take advantage the moment they find a weakness in a game to exploit it. why do people always like to cheat to take an advantage instead of trying to become better at the game itself, by learning maps, sweet spots, teamwork! units etc!

Using a powered gun isn't cheating. Don't see how anyone could say it is. You do what you can to win. That's the point. Using a less powerful gun just doesn't make any sense.
post #983 of 1615
I tried to send a Stinger at a jet yesterday and something has definitely changed. Three missiles at reasonable distances and not one hit, not even damage. Maybe it's just been long enough that most people have unlocked a decent defence against missiles?

Juke, question, one guy a few posts up mentioned that he was sniping from 300 yards with a USAS, it's a shot gun, while i'm not one to complain, you have to admit, that's messed up. All I'm going to say, that must be one bad A shotgun. Can't wait till I unlock it. CAPTDANMAN HAS COMETH.

Maybe folks should try it to take out the Jets.

He most likely got maybe 2 kills with the shotgun from that distance. Crazy bullet drop and direction change. Making it not very big deal or game changer.

Nope, I was there feeding him ammo. He went 9-2 and all of his shots were long distance. Damavand Peak defending. He would have gotten more, but I let my ammo crate die and he walked around looking for rounds. Everyone on our team was in the 9-2 to 10-0 range.
The gun is ridculously overpowered. Its like launching grenades.

That's because it is launching grenades. Even then. As I said. It isn't as big a deal as people make it out to be.

I hit a chopper with the 12 ga frag round from the USAS-12, I was impressed and disappointed at the same time.

It's true. I even posted a few pages back how OP I thought it was.

But having finally achieved 43 and unlocked it, it's clearly NOT the ridiculously OP'd gun I thought it was. It IS great.

Make no bones about it - it's GREAT. But it's NOT THAT great. I find myself using it less and less.
