[B]This is the thread. This is where you post stories/battlerecorder videos.

No, there are no fucking fancy banners. You want that go to >>BF3 |OT|<< or pick up a magazine (no, not the ammo version).

Also all of you suck and need to learn how to play the game as a team. Toodles![/B]

[QUOTE=Tunavi]So does the console version actually have a battle recorder? How does it work?[/QUOTE]

i dont think it actually does, does it?

id be pleasantly surprised if it did.

[QUOTE=darkwing]what squad management options?[/QUOTE]

private squads and invites in game, instead of all lobby shit which worked fine until you actually got in a game and got split up like in BC2.

also i think you can actually view squads in game and choose which to join.

Evolved1 10-25-2011 06:33 AM

Well off to an awesome start. Server browser is crap. Says games are open that are all full. So I use quick match but [I]three times in a row[/I] in drops me in a game on the losing side like 10 seconds before the match ends. My first three BF3 games are losses and I never fire a shot. Awesome.

I keep trying to get into a big vehicle map... but I join, get a loss, and then immediately get put into an infantry map. smh. I say fuck it so I can at least play for a second and I get instantly killed walking out of the spawn. Apparently on this shit map the defense and attack start right on top of one another (DICE wants to be CoD so bad, it's embarrassing). And I'm reminded how much I hate the aiming in this.

[I]Just let me fly a chopper motherfuckers!!!!!!!![/I]

Definitely

So far the one thing that stand out as a big difference from the beta is the gunplay. The guns are alot easier to handle, and it seem.s to take a bullet or 2 more to kill. This is fine, but I personally thought the gunplay in the beta was brilliant. While it's not too far off from it now, it just seem like since the guns are easier to handle its less necessary to switch to single fire mode, and I thought knowing when to switch firing modes gave the game a bit more depth

Hit detection has been pretty good so far

we don't have the battlelog browser thingy too, plus of course different maps (smaller ones)

Evolved1 10-25-2011 07:14 AM

They changed [I]all[/I] the controls for [I]everything[/I]. DICE is a bunch of cunts.

I can't fly or drive anything. And no BC2 config. It's like they're pretending that game never existed.
