    For real though. If they want to be matched up with the heavy hitters for some rounds we can work that out.

    If they would have stuck around for the next round, they would have seen us get trounced on Noshar. Barely able to hold a point, until we made a heroic comeback with 6 tickets left and bled them down from just under a hundred, maybe less, to around 30. We lost, but we made them bleed! Gradient was on the winning team though, traitor.

    In my experience a lot of it has to do with the rest of your team. If you're squad is the only one going after objectives (which I see you guys do all the time), then it's hard to win against a team with two squads capping. There have been so many times where I'm playing and don't even see another member of my team.

    But the game a day or so ago on Seine was super close, trading point for point for most of it. Even on Metro your crew made rallies to cap C and retake A or B too. Metro is the worst map to decide skill on, it's all about your team's speed out of the gate, who gets to B first with more guys and medics. We've fought ourselves to standstills on Metro so many times

    But please come join our party when you're on your own and bring your friends. We'll try and mix up the teams more like Mink said to keep things more fun for everyone.

    For wake they should have just given us WW2 aircraft, vehicles, and boats with no explanation

    also make the island a lot bigger and forested like it actually is

    But more forested would mean that there would actually be cover on wake. The map wouldn't have sucked donkey balls then - can't allow that!

    I am running the M40 with irons, all naked, and it's really fun. The irons are pretty good so I'm still able to land headshots up to at least 120 meters if they stand still. And it's obviously very decent in close quarters.

  • HonkHonk Registered User, __BANNED USERS regular
    It's hilarious how destroyed the game is for me after the patch. Between 5 - 10 second freeze frame or black screens at every single death/spawn/revive.

    The game crashes constantly. Why did they have to do something, whatever they did, with the video. Why not just change the numbers on weapons. Game ruined.

    No they did not insult anyone. It was pretty plain that we were getting the hell trounced out of us. I tried to tell them that it was the rest of the team holding us back but meh, they would rather roll the enemy team then really have a good match. I did hop back on the dome after they left and get my ass handed to me a couple of times though lol.

    Haven't been keeping up with the latest in BF but did this lastest patch release the flood gates for douchebags to reign supreme? About every match I've joined has been lop-sided where its clearly one talented team versuses the rookies and/or wash ups. The douche baggery only happens when they've pinned us into a corner to hone their long distance shooting by releasing us into the open one at a time.

    Love BF to death but the latest sign-ons have been a buzz kill.

    Imagine what "cheese' could exist if someone tried to copy Velveeta.

    Not sure why that made me laugh.

    I'll have to look at the server list better, and this is PSN, next time I play and possibly adjust the filters. Only a few months ago, I could randomly pick from the first page of the server list and be thrust into descent games. It's just been lately since I began playing again that its been unpleasant.

    I enjoy rolling an enemy team and camping them maybe like once a week.
    But I'd never want to do it over and over, it's boring as fuck.

    The clan servers have been a problem with me. The few rounds I got to play were on the losing side of a pub stomp and the others saw me get booted because I was assigned onto the team with the clan.

    I can filter out official servers but I can't filter out the custom ones. Not so happy about that one.

    For starring sniper rilfes with an ACOG; all the power, none of the scope glare.

    Have keep an eye out for you ScienceMonkey <img class=" title=":mrgreen:" class="bbcode_smiley" /> next time I'm playing. Not that I'd want to drag someone else through the pain of getting stomped into the ground but at least there would be another teammate that has an idea of what they're doing. Think it was the Sharqi map where my side's only plan of action was to charge head-first to the closest point. No flanking, NO TEAMWORK, nothing... :P

    Bazaar is probably a better map for grinding out sniper service stars. The never ending explosions in Metro make it pretty frustrating to land shots with the rifles.

    Nah, too many ways to get flanked. It you're RU on Metro (or on a good US team that can push past point B), you can grab 20 or 30 kills easily since you can just set up shop. The fact that the ranges aren't super extreme (even outdoors) the ACOG is perfect. Plus it gives you a huge advantage over the guys with the 8x and 12x scopes and the glint. It's the perfect counter-sniping setup.

    Check your platoons and view the members of whichever PA platoon you got into, then you should be able to join with some PA guys. The Angry Dome is the PA server, but IIRC, it's rarely used nowadays.

    There is one thing I can't figure out about this game. Everytime I prefire at a corner that an enemy is coming around, I lose. EVERY TIME. Even if they run straight into my fire and I hit them with the first bullet and even with the suppression perk I will always lose the fight.

    I just can't figure out why, or what is up with this shit.

    this is something that started to get to me quickly after the patch. was playing support and i saw this guy coming on the mini map. Laid down the burst fire. I can see the bullets hitting him and the blood coming out. Dude has time to stop, scope, and kill me. He was sprinting into my bullets, and then I was dead. I'm not sure I even want to try and understand it.

    I am glad that I am not the only one experiencing this. I was doing this in hardcore mode and not getting the kills, despite getting hit markers and giant spatters of blood pouring out of the guys head. I would think that walking around a corner into a constant stream of suppressive fire would make them not be able to turn and shoot you with pinpoint accuracy, but apparently I am wrong.

    It has happened so often to me that I just don't prefire anymore. I just wait till they come around the corner, at least then its a 75:25% fight instead of always just being instantly headshot.

    Also M26 Mass double headshot at ~60 metres...

    Man it seems like they are busy updating Battlelog every time I want to change servers...

    So I'm wondering if anyone can help me out, having some trouble running Battlefield 3 smoothly.

    I have a Phenom X4 9950 quad-core and ATI HD6870 with 4 Gigs of ram, which should be enough to run on average-high settings. In game though I'll frequently experience FPS drops / laggy behaviour (not from high ping) and sometimes 0.5 - 1 second freezes. BF3 is the only game that does this. This happens both when there's a lot of action on screen (I'm willing to let this slide) or nothing is going on at all.

    It hurts especially when sniping. Bringing up the scope to zoom in on something comes with noticeable lag

    Or rushing to get in the tank before the enemy does, I'll press E to get in...nothing happens...press E again and suddenly I see myself inside the tank for a split second and then jump out again. Sometimes this repeats a few times while Yakety Sax plays.

    For reference, my in game video settings are pretty much all on low/medium. Resolution is the lowest I can set it on. Doesn't make much of an impact on the overall smoothness, runs about the same as the higher settings when there's no stutter.
