    How does it take this long to fix autobalance? I mean honestly? Or the M60? THAT is just a value change!

    It's boss, but not as boss as the M60. Yah yah, the M60 is cheese-o-matic, but I am a terrible player. I give myself the self-imposed handicap adjustment of using the M60 without feeling much guilt. My K/D ratio is still plenty negative.

    Terrible players who use the M60 probably don't help themselves by relying on a crutch. "I know, instead of getting better at the game, I'll just use an OP weapon to compensate!" Same with the CG. Instead of learning how SMGs handle, it's just spam spam spam.

    I think this bears repeating:

    To easily add some PA servers (Angry Dome in particular) to your Favorites tab, edit GameSettings.ini (Found in MyDocs/BFBC2) and add:
    75443431,958a33dd-6071-4f61-bb1e-bfe803481ae5,The Angry Dome;3789002014,22595a7b-ccf6-404f-97ea-b854175e34d4,Penny Arcade West Coast Server;2408473747,c8876d1f-8914-4edd-a77e-b63930390661,Black House Combat [Seattle];
    

    That'll add The Angry Dome, PA West Coast, and Black House Combat. I couldn't find any mention of the other PA servers while digging around for these. This should go in the OP. Also, add Zetty to the PC-EA Account Thing.

    For the M60, they're probably figuring out how much they need to nerf it (damage? accuracy? automatic ban once you reach 500 kills?)

    As for auto balance, I really have no clue why that hasn't been fixed server-side. It even worked better in the beta :x

    I think you missed the whole terrible players part. In my adventures of asking people to curb M60/CG/40mm spam the line I get most often is "I'm bad, it's ok if I use it." ( Looking at you, Veitsev ) But way to get defensive about it!

    ■Server browser downloads 100 entries instead of 500 in a chunk this makes the Cancel button more responsive

    ■Fixed crash during server browser refresh

    ■Low-level networking library switched back to the optimized version (the game client was temporarily running with one that had more debugging logic in it)

    ■Localization fixes in the scoreboard

    ■Server browser ping handling code modified

    That must be some bug you've run into! Shooting someone 20+ times point blank and not missing a shot and having your target not die, only to have 100 damage done to you as they shrug the massive amount of lead you have put into them. Or maybe that guy is hacking. I suggest FRAPS'ing it and reporting that guy to DICE!

    I'm wondering how queuing for a match works on the consoles. Is it possible to get into one that is near the end? I'm guessing so, but I'm wondering if it "prefers" new comers for matches that are just starting. The reason I ask is because for the past few days I'll be damned if I've been in any with more than 8 or 9 people per side. It also never seems to grow beyond those numbers. No big deal, but I miss the 12 on 12 chaos that took place in the first couple of weeks.

    So, server balancing? Restrictive queuing policy? Popularity already waning? I dunno, but I want more peeps to pew pew!

    This. Though we don't have as many problems with hill snipers as we used to (its more M60/CG/40mm now :P), it would probably get bad again without killcams.

    Started working on recon the last week. Didn't want to suck it up on the Dome, but I'll be back now that I've got my bearings with it. Just pulled off a marksman headshot of +372 on a pubbie. I think I'm getting the hang of this.

    Also: I've yet to find a sniper rifle better than the M24, and I'm almost up to the GOL.

    I'm not 100% sure, but I think disabling the kill cam also disables being able to see what is going on with squadmates in the spawn screen. At least that's how it has been for me every time I've joined a server with no kill cam.

    There's also the sniper issue.

    I managed to get the veteran status working yesterday and unlocked my M1 Garand. Ah man that rifle is nice. I've been using it on my assault/recon classes during the attack phase of rush. Sneaking into the mcom, place 6 C4s on it, arm it, then wait... if it looks like its going to get disarmed I blow the charges killing the defenders. If not, I blow the charges near the last seconds to rack up bonus points for damage.

    Highlights Yesterday:
    Sniping the guy on the jet ski as he is trying to hit me. I headshot him and the jey ski flies over my head. It was the thing action movies are made of.

    Sitting on the other side of the broken down truck, using the enemies ammo/health kits. as they fire from the other side of it. I call a mortar down on myself, run out to draw them out and then watch as shit blows up.

    Chasing the Apache with my UAV and while Warcry is trying to dodge it he gets nailed by a heavy tank from the opposite side. I believe it went something like "Watch out for that UAV, Here is comes again, dodge it.. *BOOM* what the fuck where did. Damnit"

    I love it when Goombie threatens to kick me because he ate my CG. Yes, real mature.

    I dunno, according to the stats o matic site, (which is a day old mind you), you have 45 kills with the CG, 8 with the RPG, and 5 with the AT4. You've basically double the kills with the CG than you do any other SMG. Sounds like you main it to me. I will look again when the stats update. Maybe you've adjusted your playstyle?

    ...Pardon my french, but when the fuck did it become a house rule that you can't use the CG to freaking kill people as a main choice? What the hell is the difference compared to oh, grenade spamming (Which was what we were fighting against, nice way to pad the scores there) or using an M60 in general? the CG is an anti INFANTRY rocket, it's what it's supposed to do. Considering I use the damn thing to snipe folks that the SMG's can't hit, I damn well will use that compared to pecking at that from range. I'll even use it to hit someone in the face from ten yards off.

    I got it, stop maining those tanks too! I mean, those shells are totally unfair. But hey, the M60's are fine.
