Guess I should start complaining about dry humping support players just to get their attention for ammo, which I do most the time I end up on a squad that I'm Engi on and need to replenish my swag and boy do I need to replenish when I start rage revenging with anti-air on an invincible chopper.

spyderwholikes69? come November I'll show you a recon who respects the role, you will be amazed what it's like to take corners with what feels like a sixth sense.
I wear this pretty proudly:

and

over 4000 kills teammates got that I helped with.
I have played 50 minutes of a losing conquest game (say Metro 200% tix) and angrily switch to recon, find a hiding spot to camp, pull out the MAV, and see my team takeover and win in the last 10 min. I have done it enough I know it's not a coincidence. I'm a prankster at heart, the slow patient kind, probably not too many players like me that will hide and use a MAV to spot for hours on end, I really do get kicks seeing a greyscale a squad of players frantically shoot at my MAV buzzing around their face and wait 5 seconds for my squad to roll around the corner and clean the floor.

There are times when it's better to have a 4-squadmate moving with you, and there are times it's just better to have doritos popping like crazy because of an eye in the sky.
Kind of like a helpers high, if you can't respect that, then... :-/


You're not really a member of RoG, are you? eek.gif

Anyway, I didn't realize you played so little. Just for fun, I looked up my numbers on those tags you posted. I have 4,935 MAV assists and 5,782 on Big Brother...and I don't even play as Recon unless I'm getting spawn-camped by friends or dicking around. For what it's worth, I also have 5,782 spot assists with the T-UGS, so no camping even when goofing off. Funny thing is that I've probably got 3 times the amount of kills with the MAV as I have assists. Even after the patch, it's deadly when used right. Nothing more hilarious than flying it inside Metro's itty-bitty hallways. biggrin.gif

I typically waver between my "Death's how I (T)roll" tag with 17,453 tank kills and my "Jet Kills" tag that sits now at 8,781. More important is my "Start Walking" tag with 17,926 vehicles destroyed. BUT...the most important tags I own are the ones that say I captured 7,025 flags and defended 5,454 of them. Kudos for being one of the < 1% of snipers that actually spot, but, sadly, MAVs can't cap flags. frown.gif

Looks like Amazon is matching Gamestops $10 upgrade offer.

Pro - you dont have to buy the 360 game at amazon

Con - you have to mail in your 360 game and wait for them to credit you the $50 before purchasing the XB1 game, then you would need to wait again for the shipping. Could be a week long wait for Prime members.

I spend most of my non-work hours in the day investing into three little lives that will one day be the sole providers of my care, well being, entertainment, and relationships when I'm elderly, I just wish to enjoy some good gaming until then.

You've got your priorities in order then. smile.gif

Of course the new trailer looked sweet but I did notice something that I hope was just the video being played faster than normal. The sniper that took out the guy on the boat, it was very CODish. He basically pulled the trigger and the bullet hit the guy pretty quickly for the distance he was at. I was expecting some sort of bullet lead/drop but it didnt really show that. Again it could of been the video being played faster than normal.

Probably sped up a bit, as the whole thing seemed that way to me. Of course, it could just be our brains trying to process all the incredible things we just witnessed. If that clip stood alone and wasn't packed into a montage of delicious goodness, it might appear differently.

Looked about 900 yards and he was leading the target by about 15 feet on the targets end. Seems the same to me.

No way is DICE going back to hitscan BS.

Wow! Thanks Nex!

I googled it immediately after I read your post and went directly to his room where he was in bed half asleep to show him. He's now wired and jumping around from the excitement!

Thanks again!

HaHa! It was worth it! He's settled back down now and went back to bed but with a huge smile on his face.

I (or he) wouldn't have ever known if you didn't mention it. Thanks again Nex for making his night!

No problem, first thing I thought when I heard was you talking bout Minecon.

Here is some live multiplayer gameplay in spectator mode.

Thoughts? Seems like an interesting game mode but the games are a little to quick. Maybe some more bomb sites or just the players were still learning everything.



Look what popped up in Origin.

Its frustrating watching some people play. I am basically watching the noobs I cant stand to play with in my squad. This is just bad. Im like yelling at my computer because some of the stupidity I am witnessing.

I looked at it again and it looked like it was only 146 meters. Looked like he had a range finder thing, with his rifle zeroed in at 200meters. So really not that far at all. Plus with the jet ski moving in such a fast manner, it all happened very fast and he was up high on a different plane than the enemy. It was just kind of a tricky looking shot to begin with.

Sniping people out of vehicles in BF3 is sort of odd looking too. I have found it very difficult and very rare to accomplish. I'm guessing BF4 will be fairly similar.

In BF3 they changed things with snipers a couple times. For a while the bullet was big, like a marshmallow. If the community dislikes sniping in BF4, there would be a good chance they might change things around post launch.

let people snipe all they want, they can brag about their high K/D but with BF that also means their win rate will probably be below .50... I love playing sniping teams, they may get some kills but i get the win...

Yeah, A few of us were playing with randoms the other day, and the enemy (with pretty good jet pilots) let 3 d-bag sniping blueberries sit atop one of the towers and hold each others' "hands" nearly the entire match. We also had at least 2 others in the hills, playing Brokeback Mountain Adventure.

Me: "Why doesn't one of their jets kill those guys?"

Zath: "Why would they? They're no threat."

Me: "You're right. I f-ing hate randoms."

We got spanked, given that it was just the three of us doing all the work. mad.gif

Funny thing is that usually they all come running in when the game is about over, like they can still pull off a win. Nope.

Mph, looks like your medic train may be gone in bf4. Leutin posted a vid on YouTube saying it took 4secs to charge the paddles before you can rez. With a field specialization it may knock it down some but prob not like bf3.

Although it is for the best and will make the game better, it still sucks. That means WAY less revives

They better get to work! This is the PS4 version but can they be that much different?

http://nextvg.com/2013/08/23/battlefield-4-graphics-reportedly-lacking-ps4/


According IGN’s Scott Lowe, Battlefield 4 on the PS4 seems to have quite a few issues when they played it a Gamescom. First and foremost, the 64 player mode that DICE is bringing, isn’t even functional on the console. Players at gamecom had to play a 16 man match cause DICE couldn’t make the 64 player feature functional in time.

In spite of EA and DICE’s emphasis on narrowing the gap between consoles and PC, this week’s PS4 demo did not include a full 64-player match or the franchise’s beloved vehicular combat. Instead, attendees were treated to a local 16-player match of Domination mode, which limited the play area to a small segment of the game’s freshly minted Paracel Storm map. While certainly a demonstration of how the game can be scaled down to satisfy players’ need for object-based infantry combat, it’s hardly living up to the promise of the “true” Battlefield experience’s arrival on consoles.

Next, the graphics appear to be even worse according to IGN.

From the moment I sat down, I was surprisingly underwhelmed by the visuals. Instead of the crisp, detailed textures I’ve encountered this week on the PC version or other next-gen shooter titles, Battlefield 4 on PS4 looked soft and muddled. Wall textures looked half-finished, lacking some of the smaller material nuances or 3D variation. Environmental destruction was more extensive than Battlefield 3 and explosions would send larger chunks of buildings into the air, but once again, the particles looked dull. Weapon models looked great at the hip, but as soon as I raised them to look down the iron sights or scopes, imperfections became apparent.

Lastly, the PS4 version is apparently scaled just above 720p – not even close to 1080p.

there was a huge gap between PC and consoles on BF3, why would BF4 be different?

Its because it was on a Playstation. XBONE FTW!!!

LoL anyone who expected the consoles to push anywhere near PC is delusional.
post #629 of 1755
I'm surprised anyone takes anything IGN seriously anymore. I wouldn't be surprised to find out they doofus was looking at the current gen alpha.

Anyways, was shown behind a closed door for a reason. Like Driveclub, they're probably much, much further on the build than shown but really can't show it because it's akin to a car with the engine block chained up. The alpha was probably the most polished code they had in a playable state, but months old.

Truth be told I don't have much hope for cross gen, launch title 3rd party wares this first year (But I'm willing to be surprised!). They're still worried about putting out PS360 versions and the engines probably have the bare minimum optimizations for the brand new hardware possible. It happens every gen until publishers start shifting away from the prior gen, and put up the cash and money to build in engine optimizations for the new console hardware.

The Division demo (engine) was built from the ground up for the XBone and PS4, and was apparently running on a PS4 Dev kit (wasn't slated for PC until recently). The world looks just as nice, detailed, and large (although no info on framerate or resolution). If engines are built with this hardware in mind, they'll easily be pushing top end PC graphics right now.

I guess some big news is surfacing about BF4 will be 720p native upscaled to 1080p on PS4.

https://twitter.com/jackfrags/status/370847476754157568

But then there is this...so maybe it might be more than 720p...idk now.

https://twitter.com/jackfrags/status/370894369404227584

Either way it sounds like they have some work cut out for them to get everything ready for launch.
