    it's fixed. if it's greyed out for you, find the server in the browser. the new browser is much, much faster. add it to your favorites, and connect. that should put it on your favorites again and connect-able.

    I was actually going for a placebo effect since I thought the M60 was nerfed but the M93 and CG still felt just as bad.

    But apparently they are fixed so heeeeeey.

    Pretty sure the M16 got nerf attention because it had the highest percentage of kills of any Assault-class primary, and that despite the fact that it's the final primary unlock for Assault.

    Does anyone know what "decreased the range" means exactly?

    The rounds will have less of a tendency to stay on target the farther you are from someone.

    We are in quite the gaming drought.

    Wouldn't that just be reduced accuracy?

    I thought it meant the damage fall-off was closer.

    Probably both, since I'm pretty sure they're not gonna make sniper rifles inaccurate.

    Four times as fast. Gone are the days of spawn camping with choppers. You now stay the fuck back. Like, really fucking far back.

    Yeah, chopper battles are bloody insane on Atacama Desert now. Alt fire = tracer dart for your gunner = nearly instant win. It's fucking manic. Chopper flying is bloody terrifying now. AA guns got a damage buff as well. DICE doesn't like choppers it seems.

    Thank god. So sick of fighting 6v6 on Atacama while half of each team waits in their deployment.

    Also looking forward to not seeing so many level 30+ people who can't score more than 500 points on any other map.

    Assuming all of these changes make it to the 360 by the end of the year, anyway.

    I think I like all those weapon changes, or at least the ones I'm familiar with. Besides the obvious nerfs for 40mm and CG, I think the LMG's actually might be better with less recoil in short bursts even if they did tone down the damage. I also think the Mortar strike nerf was justified. Having a skill that gives you the ability to rain down a dozen or so high explosives is pretty scary. Having a tank taken out that way made the tank feel too fragile. I'm also happy about the shotgun changes. I had to put 5 rounds into someone the last time I played and we were in the same freaking room.

    Actually LMGs are so fucking inaccurate if you so much as think as moving now that I am so happy oh goodness DICE is great.

    Also the tracer was good for 360, but not so much PC. I hope it doesn't stay too long.

    I just borrowed the Xbox version of this from a friend, naturally he has used the VIP code already so I can't, I understand it gives you access to 2 extra maps? Whats the deal with paying 1200points on the marketplace for VIP access? Do I have to have the code AND pay 1200 points? Also does not having the code mean I can't buy the new skins released today?

    Im wondering if I should buy my own copy, or if I'm going to be bored of it anyway. I especially don't want to have to buy a new copy AND spend a ton of MS points on it.

    Thanks

    Just as long as the 40mm and CG can still demolish a wall in one hit then its cool.

    The VIP is just EA's way to combat used sales of the game. That content is free if you get the game new, you just enter the code you get, otherwise you buy it from them.

    It doesn't already do that? Am I reading that wrong, or is this a PC problem?

    Unless this is referring to separate secondary weapons for each class, which would be nice. Switching from engineer to something else and forgetting you have the tracer dart equipped can be an unpleasant surprise.

    If having a kill radius of almost 2m is humiliating? maybe on the 360 where people can't aim it is. :j

    Also LMGs seem like I won't hate them anymore.

    On the PC, this was a problem for me. Every time I'd join a server I had to reset my kit for every class. Losing a connection meant doing it all over again.

    I'll know once I see the update, but if they're anything like they were in the first then they're going out the window as a combat implement.
