The new US black dude Support skin looks the splitting image of David Estes from Homeland.

The Russians look a whole lot more badass now too, with all the cuts and blood.

Anyone still playing this?

I had some great (for me anyway!) rounds on the weekend using a silenced UMP-45. What a beast of a weapon

I even put a 3.4x scope on it and did some mid-range rapeage as well. Virtually no recoil which makes it a great noob-weapon

Yeah still playing. I need to appease my OCD by getting 500 kills with all weapons

As with all PDWs, UMP-45 damage drops off super quick so you're better off sticking to close quarters. M5K is better though

Got around to playing this for a couple of quick games last night (after 3.7gb of updates). The snow map is pretty cool, and the dirtbikes are a good addition. Played one round of the air war mode, but as I've only unlocked IR Flares and nothing else I was getting smashed

There are two servers up on PC which are empty. I presume it's not ready/released yet?

I am feeling buttfrustrated cos I sat down to play a bit of BF3 today after work and it tells me it needs to be updated, with a 4GB download. I am mainly mad cos I updated it with a 10GB download yesterday! How the fuck does one expansion need 10GB of downloaded content...

Meh tomorrow I'll be happy again, I was just peeved cos I'd decided to play BF3 when I was driving home today, then they decide to bone me with another 4gb download.
I should set Origin to run at startup as well, cos then at least it should download some updates automatically

Yeah that was strange, probably snuck in a patch the cheeky fuckers.

I've played one map of air superiority so far, hate it. Fuck jets. Is the air radar nearly useless for anyone else or is just because I'm shit?

I forgot you guys got the update a couple of weeks after the PS3. Yeah I'm loving the CTF mode. It's a Javelin vs Dirtbikes fest, questionable tactics and great fun.
I'm not actually hating the Air Superiority mode now - it's pretty easy to unlock the first 4 or 5 upgrades just by capturing a few flags, then you can use them in normal games modes once you get sick of getting hammered in AS.

That aside the new maps and gameplay are pretty cool.

yeah switched on xbox, 1.92GB update, thought i had it go to play "missing DLC", that was just the update, another 1.72GB, its been like that every DLC.

If you haev the standard 20GB xbox model you cant actually fit the game on it! SO DUMB

I agree on questionable tactics, snipers camping flags, tanks sitting back bombarding your base, shiz like that.

still, once people get more into it we'll see many new counters to these.

JRod, are you having issues with servers not being updated? the only servers that I could play on were DICE servers with most "personal" servers still running the old version

Totally got love for battlelog. Being able to to other shit on the internet while the game fires up is a revelation. And it's just so much more pleasant to use than a traditional interface for multiplayer games.

its cause rush is shit on bf3 compared to BC2

on BC2 you could destry mcomms with tanks, c4, take down buildings they were in. rubble the whole town so there was no cover (if you were defending)

so many cool tactics you could use.

bf3 is like flanking manouvres only. fkn boring in comparison to what rush used to be.

Blowing M-coms up with tanks from 500m is not how rush should be played. I used to fucking hate that on BC2 because you could never get anywhere near the tanks, nor could you even try to attack them long range under the blanket of sniper fire. It just made BC2 rush a ridiculous game mode. So glad you actually now have to physically go into the building to arm the m-com.

I did like the C4 side of it though, I do miss that.

blowing them up with tanks from miles away was a rare occurance.

and when it was, bit of teamwork would stop it so quickly.

tracer dart it and the thing would be gone.

tracers had no bullet drop too so you could get them easily as they wouldnt move whilst bombarding mcomms.

I agree with Jarrod. The long range shelling of MCOMs seemed to happen only on the same 2 or 3 MCOMs in the entire game. It wasn't that big of a deal.

Rush isn't as good as it was in BC2 but it's still by far the best game mode. I played a full server of hardcore rush on one of the endgame maps last week and it was amazing. want moar.

Most of battlelogs issues relate to the PC version of the game

I probably shouldn't say battlelog is truely horrible but there are a few little issues with it that annoy me. If it was fixed I'd like it a bit more.

PC game completely dependent on Battlelog - If the website is down, we cannot play Battlefield, not even single player.

Server filter is buggy - Although there's a save filter button, my filter choices are never saved correctly. Each time I play, I have to rechoose most of the filters.

Server Search results list are poorly designed - I cannot see all my search results at first, as it only loads a few at a time. To see all, I need to scroll to the bottom of the page, wait for a few more to load, then scroll to the bottom again and repeat as many times to get all results. This ruins trying to reorder a column in the search results as it will only reorder the loaded results rather than all search results.

The favourite servers list is buggy - Once I save more than 10-13 servers as favourites, Battlelog will start to lose favorites. There's no order in which ones it decides to remove from the favourites list.

Battlelog installs ESN Sonar web plugins - this is used for voice chat, but I just don't like it when third party software is installed on my PC unannounced, particularly web plugins. Also, the plugins are screwly when it comes to updates. Unless I manually uninstall the previous version before updating, it just keeps all the old plugins in the web browser.

On console or previous Battlefields, I can voice chat to my squad. And on BF3 on the consoles I can also voicechat to the team. With ESN Sonar now the controller for voice chat in PC BF3, I can only chat to those in my fiends list, where I also need to create a chat room, invite them, and then activate voice chat first.

Although Battlelogs' username and password is now link to our Origin accounts, the website login page still doesn't use encryption.


These are all little faults or poor designs, but what annoys me most is that one of the selling points of Battlelog was that by using a website/HMTL it would be very easy to maintain and update, yet all the things I've listed have existed since day one.

Do it! Even just to have the surround sound in your ears - nothing like listening to an enemy chopper circling you, explosions all around.
