    I seriously do not understand some of the patch fixes.

    *make stingers more powerful
    -nulled by making flares pop out faster than stingers can be fired
    -range extremely decreased
    -Jets are faster than missles
    -AA missles just miss jets anyways now
    *fine tune all the weapons accuracy/spread/dmg
    -nulled by increasing suppression so every gun can't hit shit equally
    *make soflams better
    *make javelins better
    *make rockets better
    -Nerf welder

    I wish more maps would use the Mobile AA trucks. I've maybe seen the thing 1 time and a guy sat in it the entire round destroying everything that came off the aircraft carrier. I just want my mini-gun truck :(

    Not to cause all the tank arguments to start up again but did they nerf the mounted machine gun on it? The one the second player uses? just finished a game were i had a solid ping (as far as you can believe the in-game ping) and was getting solid hits on people (hit marks all over the place) But it seemed people were taking alot more shots to kill now than when i played before the patch...

    I Haven't played in probably a month and a half so i may just be remembering wrong.

    Just got done playing on the 360 Angry Dome. My friends and I enjoyed it for the most part. Although we got rolled pretty hard a few times was still fun.

    Would be nice to fill it up all the way. Unfortunately, having one side mostly PA means we end up scaring away people. I changed the rotation too. Added in the smaller maps.

    Yeah, that's the only thing I really don't understand about the patch. Buff rockets against tanks and nerf the welder at the same time.

    Regarding the mounted MG for the tank, it's kinda weak in BF3. As a reference, in BC2 players were bullet sponges, but in that game it took less hits from the MG to kill someone than it does in BF3.

    I just played my first round of BF3 on PC after a six month hiatus. I have completely missed out on all DLC and happenings, but the community seems better and goddamn have I missed DICE sound effects. What have I missed in terms of DLC? Is there competent voice chat yet?

    EDIT - It says I get Back to Karkland Free. My BF3 is in fact the preordered Limited Edition. How do I make sure I got that? I did a pretty hefty update this morning.

    I am pretty sure if you have the limited edition,you just have B2K.
    Everyone has it installed anyway and if you have the LE, it's just unlocked for you.
    Try to join a B2K map and see for yourself!

    If anyone wants to grind out points on co-op to unlock weapons hit me up! I just need the last two.

    How do people get 60k points on the last mission?

    I remember people would purposely fail arming the bomb and restart the mission, because it was easy points. That doesn't seem like a glitch to me, so what I'm trying to say is educamate me on how to be a nasty glitcher.

    I never finished Drop'em Like Liquid, so I've never even seen the last mission. The helicopter one and the one in the office building are easy points though.

    I also go by Twinkie in some games. Add me on Steam!

    Helicopter one sucks shit for points.

    Best bet if you don't have Eleventh Hour is to do Exodus on easy and go for as many headshots as you can. Nets about 14k of you do it right.

    I'm not telling you guys to try this or anything

    but put an M26 MASS (dart or buck) on the underslung rail of an assault rifle that also has a heavy barrel on it (important)

    then hipfire the shotgun

    That's what i've been using. What difference does the heavy barrel make?

    It applies the same spread reduction to the MASS. And the MASS already has the same spread as the 870.

    You've got to aim with it, but the pellets are ridiculously accurate out to ranges where slugs are generally your only option on a shotty. We're talking about from one shot kills from the top of Hilltop (D) on Caspian to the river down below.

    It took longer than it should have, but I've finally achieved the goal I set when I got the game: a service star for every primary weapon. Now I have to decide whether I want to grind out every iteration of every pistol, or start picking up the 500 kill dogtags. In any case, I don't expect I'll be using any of the sniper rifles or the jackhammer ever again.

    oh I see, I was surprised at the range you get out of it to be honest. I just thought it was like that by design.

    Played some more Angry Dome tonight. My friends and I were quite sore from that ass whooping we received at the hands of the PA people on the 360 lol. They decided we needed to go to a slightly more bad friendly server. I enjoyed it at least.

    We really need to level out how many PA guys are on each team. All on one team just turns into an ass blistering steamroll.

    Assuming they haven't changed it: After the bomb is disarmed, you go out on the street but don't go up the stairs into the building (a bank? can't remember) the police are surrounding. If you stay away from the stairs, the enemies will spawn endlessly. So you and your partner sit there and kill dudes until you get bored, alternating runs back for ammo.

    Yeah, I mean it started out fairly balanced, in fact @furlion, you were on my team with some other PA guys against Dug and some other PA guys, then the map switched and for some reason auto-balanced us all on to one team and left you on the other. Dug and some others will argue that if Mink is on the other team, you can have all the other PA people on one team and it will be fair. But good games all around!

    Well the first match was not too bad like Op said. But the matches after that things turned rather ugly. I know I am not that good but my friends are pretty decent and they were scared lol. In other news I did enjoy the maps and as big fan of conquest I have no problem running all/mostly cq/cqa.

    So today I got a close quarters triple kill in an interesting way. I jumped off the top of a building while firing down towards the 3 enemies with my 240. I landed, and while I landed I was shooting the ground, then I did what I call "the helicopter" and started spinning while firing and raising my gun in a pattern of a death spiral. 3 kills without aiming.

    Now Im gonna make a montage.

    Admittedly we only always win on servers with no autobalancer and generally shitty players regardless.

    Lizard Lounge is generally pretty good, seeing as it will violate the sanctity of your squad to make sure that shit's balanced.

    You leave on auto balance to try and make it even out. Then autobalance decides nearly all pubs belong on one team.

    If you change people mid round they get mad sometimes too.

    In a way it was better before. You could totally blame the lack of control.
