    I have such a horrendous man-crush on this game. It's absolutely mega. I usually play Rush but had a good few games on Conquest yesterday and as I bought into the premium goodness I decided to have a bash on the CQ maps today, found some really good servers and had a really intense, high-octane experience. It's a decent xp earner as well, plenty of kills and captures to be had on domination.

    I've been into a few FPSs on PC before (TF2, Tribes) but I think this might be the real deal. Who knows, might even hear the pattering of tiny gunfire in the future...*

    People that run servers that autokick players for using grenades should also smash their own testicles with a cricket bat every time their stupid rule kicks someone.

    Fuckwits having such a bloody stupid rule.

    Loving how the Spoons are uniting to vent their fury!!

    Tbf, if you aren't having fun with the rules there are sooooo many other servers to get lost in.

    EDIT: reading that back, hope it clear that I was talking in the sense of losing yourself rather than 'get lost' ;p

    Just bought this, managed to download all of the DLC last night and finally had a game. Did pretty wel before getting kicked for some Punkbuster reason. Read that I had to update it so I did. Since that first game I haven't been able to get into a game - it says disconnected from server (or EA online sometimes) whenever the map starts to load. Anyone have any ideas why?

    I've tried updating punkbuster manually, I've tried turning off my firewall, I've tried using IE rather than Chrome, and I attempted to open the ports they mention but not sure if I did it correctly...


    Could it be my wireless connection? I don't really have connection issues with other online games that I've played, although admittedly that isn't very many on the PC

    What servers do people use? I just want vanilla BF3, none of these bullshit rules.

    Get bent.

    =G4L= Gamers- 4-life 24/7Gulf of Oman is what I've been using for the past while. Normal rules and re-spawns, long but not excessive ticket count (matches usually last 45 mins) and most people actually work as a team to win.

    Gulf of Oman is basically the only map I play now, or other Karkand maps. They should just ditch the last DLC and recreate another batch of BF2 maps instead.

    That last DLC was great, they're the only maps that actually have the right sort of scale (with the possible exception of Oman). Alborz Mountains is class.

    Just started playing again to give Aftermath a go.
    The servers are still busy, and the new maps are ace- lots of new textures and a nice approach to using the vertical axis around some capture points. I've not tried 'scavenger' out yet (or anything other than conquest/conquest assault tbh), but I'm delighted to see that people have now got new and interesting things to kill me with.

    Think I'll just switch everything off.

    Which of the expansions are worth getting? I've got Karkand.

    I've yet to play aftermath, so cant comment on that but there is some good maps in the other two expansions, close quarters is good fun and something different. Your probably better of buying premium at this stage, its pretty cheap.

    I tend to just wind up playing the vanilla maps anyway. Premium is pretty cheap now if you want the extra guns and crap, but honestly the best guns were released with the game.

    Never played Aftermath, but imo the vanilla maps are by and large awful. Karkand and Armoured Kill have decent ones.

    The only bad map in the vanilla pack is Metro, the rest are good and few have been bettered by any of the DLC.

    Alternatively the only good map in vanilla is Grand Bazaar, and the only bad maps in Karkand and Armoured Kill are Wake and Death Valley.

    Rather a matter of opinion, that.

    Metro conquest can be fun with 32 players, but any more is unplayable. I find that good rush maps are terrible conquest ones, and vice versa

    Thanks for that, just picked it up. I have to get over this phobia of K&M controls. I've decided to stick to it exclusively for BF3 from now on; no 360 controller allowed...I will master it....I will...

    Unfortunately, even if you so prefer a controller, fps games on the pc are impossible to play without a keyboard and mouse as you'll just be slaughtered. Give me a shout if you fancy some games though. Need to play this more

    Will do. I can get along with the mouse fine, its just the bloody keyboard. Its just so fiddly. I did try using the pad in one hand for movement and the mouse for aiming, but I was stuck without reload etc. Unless I map those to the dpad...

    With BF3 now being the benchmark game, I thought I would play a bit now I have a second 570.

    Always above 60fps (normally 90+) all maxxed out except AA, as I find that unneeded beyond 4xMSAA.  Really changes the game good god how did I survive before.

    Just wondering what is needed for this, in case I drop sli due to noise? I guess a single 670 wouldn't do it .

    I cant believe how much more beautifullerer it is with my more modest set up over the 360. Christ its a goddamn good looking game, even for an fps.
