    Prone on BF should always be banned. Big open maps plus prone = camping snipers

    You still get camping snipers - even when there isn't any prone :)

    I really haven't got a problem with people using prone on battlefield games,there is nothing more pleasurable than knifing them in the back!

    On the big open maps that you all seem to want, snipers lying prone from miles away will b impossible to hit, unless you counter sniper. On most BC2 maps you can generally shoot them with other weapons with a bit of skills

    With regard to the prone debate, I agree that in the console focused games you couldnt have it as it would prove extremely difficult to find snipers. Don't forget that in BF2 where there was prone, you also had the commander. One of the commanders primary jobs was to give the frontlines UAV support and help out when there was a particularly loathsome sniper. Co-ordinating with the commander could be really good fun.
    For those who never had a go of BF2 here's a vid that you can see what the commander did.

    The lack of prone has hardly discouraged snipers in the Bad Company series. The problem is that sniping has been made far too easy. Unless that is addressed, every bush and hill will be infested with the furry plague.

    In the hundreds of hours that I played BF2, I can hardly remember a time where I was frustrated by snipers (barring the patch that introduced the claymore clusterfuck) yet in BC it happens almost every round.

    Having said that, removing prone would mean no dolphin diving which would be a blessed relief.

    In BF2 prone sniper was never a problem if you had a good commander. He would put the UAV over them, or manually spot, then either artillary them or drop a supply crate/vehicle on them. Was all part of the game.

    @L_Twin

    Big day for #BF3, huge internal EA reveal. What a corporate blow it'll be when the viewers will be unable to work after due to blown minds.

    BF2 only ever crashed on my PC when I was in commander mode. I think the game was trying to tell me something.

    Commander mode was awesome.

    Teaser trailer later today (Friday) and it's on the cover of Game Informer.

    Hopefully a version of this will be playing on the teaser and I'll be smiling.

    This space left intentionally blank.

    The first thing that put me off when I saw Gameinformer's cover flaunting Battlefield 3 is that DICE supposedly "sets its sights on Call of Duty" with it.

    I wish video game journalists would stop masturbating to the franchise. Battlefield is a much older franchise, it is inarguably more in-depth, it was multiplayer long before Call of Duty decided to take that road, and it switched to the modern day setting first, too.

    I hope DICE focuses on creating a worthy successor to Battlefield 2, rather than worrying about seducing CoD fans and therefore including features that will feel out of place.

    I can predict some BF2 fans not getting what they want out of this already.

    I've already accepted it so it wont hurt me too much. Not like DA2.

    I've already accepted whatever bf3 is it won't be as good as it should of been because it's coming out on the consoles as well.

    The irony being if they did go full steam ahead and make BF3 just for PC as a successor to BF2 it would sell Starcraft 2 levels of units on day one. They would basically own a giant chunk of the PC shooter market and be damn near untouchable with it.

    Trying to convince a room of people that think making a multiplatform game will make them more money than making the best game they can for 1 system is a hard sell.

    The thing is BFBC2 did much better than EA expected it to do on PC. I mean it did silly well. I think they forgot how much BF if PC royalty, but it seems like to take on CoD they are more than happy to grab all those fans they forgot they had, convince them they are making the game they want and just make BFBC3 sans the BC tag to drum up a bigger fan fair. I mean have you noticed people coming out the wood work remaking how long they've been waiting for this game?

    People are gonna get upset when the reveal comes along if it doesn't go their way. I'll be gutted personally but I expect it.
