    I reduced the resolution to 1600*900; it seems to have improved performance.

    I don't know if this is going to be counted as a bug or a sploit, but I dropped an ammo crate near a flag for all 31 engineers on my team, then hopped into a tank destroyer, and all the points gained seemed to have been stuck onto my destroyer XP count- I picked up the first three (easy) unlocks in one match, without a single kill.

    Think I'll just switch everything off.

    That's always been the case. I racked up tons of points from AT mine kills while flying jets and unlocked a bunch of stuff when the game first came out.

    I see the Windows updater in the bottom right there, I presume that slows things a bit right?

    You mean next to the dozen or so icons that most probably don't need to be there either?

    I see your problem. DB is on your friends list- guaranteed to slow down any PC with his black hat wizardry.
    Also kill all those apps.

    Think I'll just switch everything off.

    Also why is the screenshot 2560x1440?

    All those tray icons hurt my eyes more than they're hurting your processor and memory.

    Jeez people, calm down. I'm surprised you haven't hunted him down and force fed him sticks of RAM.

    Get bent.

    State the obvious why don't you? I was going for subtlety.

    Ah, what do I know eh?

    Damnit. No wonder I was finding it unplayable. For some reason, I can't seem to do a better speedtest than 2Mbps. I should be on 30.

    Bugger.

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    Had a little go of AK earlier... and it looks like this is actually a proper BF game now! Only a year late but I'm not complaining!

    Yup had a go earlier myself.  Due to the size of the maps if I couldn't get a vehicle I set up a tent at a strategic base and just went on offence/defence at that location as required.  E on the snowy map seemed like a good spot for action.  Looks gorgeous too.

    Console players could probably flag hop and never see an enemy all game.  These maps on PC are big enough to have lulls in the action which feels just great instead of the usual spawn die spawn die spawn die rubbish.  Never too far away from some action though and had a lot of fun with my javelin too.

    Just had a great time with AK. Perhaps more due to having just mastered taking out jets and choppers with RPGs, but I loved it.

    Took a heli out with my tank earlier, 2 direct hits and it was gone, doesn't happen often for me so I did a little girlie woop woop.

    I took the gunship out with a tank earlier. It's deceptively far away as it drones around in circles, you have to get a massive lead and drop on it.

    My fully health,  reactive armour T90 got one-shotted by a tank destroyer from medium range last night.  Is there a sweet spot that I don't know about?

    Think I'll just switch everything off.

    @Immaterial I had the same thing happen to me. I think maybe I took a hit from an RPG or mine at the same time though. The destroyers only seem to take off about 40% health for each shot usually.

    Yeah, the reactive armour is bugged somehow. It's round the wrong way so if you get hit in the front, it registers as being hit directly in the back without armour. Good work, dice.

    don't know why your surprised it took them nearly 2 years to put any kind of fix for dolphin diving in BF2, why would anyone think DICE would be any better now?

    Took another apache out with a tank again, one shot was enough.  Bet that pisses the pilots off.  No warning and no flares, just dead.

    I'm just jealous that I am a shit pilot.

    Also, javelins just rock these new maps.

    Jets making a run for you are easy pickings too. In fact everything is fairly easy to tank out of the sky if you can get enough elevation on it.

    I thought it was just gonna be tanks and more tanks but there is loads for infantry to do.  I tend not to move around as much without a vehicle.

    Possibly my fave maps so far in CQ.  haven't played tank domination as it sounds a bit meh and rush ain't my thing.

    Looks nice too.

    All in all, its a quality add on.  Close Quarters was ok but wasn't really battlefield and gun master just made me want to kick the cat.

    I learned an immense amount from watching this chap. Most of it looked insane and mostly impossible when I started watching his channel, but it's all pretty much second nature now. Simply have a go, you've got nothing to lose.

    Still waiting for anyone in the world to make a youtube gameplay montage with tolerable music.

    Heh, yeah. Most of his vids use chiptunes, I dunno why he's going for the gayness with those montages.

    Just play multiplayer ffs.

    And learn how to m&k, you're going to get your shit cut out and handed to you with a pad.

    Also vsync will lock the framerate.
