    Disappointed with AK. Maps are top big, not e ough fighting. I played every Map and got bored of each one. Think they're too big really and not enough ppl.

    Love the rest of it though!

    Is it just me or are the helicopters still too under-powered against land-based enemies?

    Sick of just getting Vehicle Disabled or hurting an infantry soldier (surely a rocket should kill him?). Had an awful, awful round just now: 1-9. Was in the air for ages at a time but nothing seemed to be connecting.

    Afaik rockets do 20% damage to infantry, so you need to land 5 of them for a kill. And they do less then 10% against tanks so you'll need to hit with more than 10 of your 14 rockets. I agree than they're underpowered, they were nerfed because people complained. If you want chopper kills then go in as the gunner.

    @Daddy-Doom-Bar

    Me too, should be beginning my PC career by the end of the week, hope you'll drop by.

    Also just come back from a West Country where it's nice to see Doom Bar on tap still.

    @DugBriderider I live and work next the brewery where they make it. Love the smell of hops in the morning...smells like Doom Bar!

    I'll post in here as it's more active.

    As of a couple of weeks ago, EA started claiming youtube videos featuring the game as their own and are taking the advertising revenue.

    I follow a few youtubers like JackFrags and LevelCap and I'm not generally all that into it, but I find it somewhat disgusting that someone else creates content and then EA feels it's their right to take their video without telling them.

    It is their game though. Same with other media like, for example, music. If you play music on a television channel you have to pay for it and they then get the money back through advertising. YouTube videos don't pay ea so ea claim the advert cash flow.

    Yeah, it's their game, but other people created the content with it. It's like adobe claiming all finished design work because it was created with their product.

    Hate to think what AK/CQ or TS is like on PC. Mayhem.

    During a 1000 ticket TS game on Xbox my tank was flying 500ft through the air after hitting any crater near the capture point, and the dreaded Bad Luck kept popping up in my own spawn for simply running towards a tank.

    AK CQ is slightly dull, loving AK in Rush though...the Gunship is so unbalanced that it brings back "good" BFBC memories of your entire squad cowering in a building away from airborne death.

    Rush on Armored Shield as a defender is so genuinely unfair that actually winning gets the old Battlefield buzz back on.

    Considering playing bf3 today for first time in couple months, is it going to make me download armoured kill even though I don't want it??

    Only if you want to play Armoured Kill maps. But the patch is mandatory and separate to the DLC.
  • Deleted user 2 October 2012 15:48:39
    Shit shit shit. You have to download armoured kill to be able to join servers!! No more bf3 then.

    That isn't correct. The patch is mandatory, the DLC isn't. You don't have to buy AK if you aren't going to play on AK servers.
  • Deleted user 2 October 2012 16:37:32
    I downloaded 150 mb patch then when u go to play it says game is not upto date. So then to play it u have to download 1.5 gb AK. Then to unlock it u download the tiny unlock patch. So if I want to play I have to download AK maps.

    No you don't. The patch is 1.5GB or something, it does not contain Armored Kill. Armored Kill is a separate download from the store.

    I would never find a BF3 easter egg,unless they put one inside a T90 or Abrams.Looking forward to getting back to this after I put Borderlands 2 down.Its been a month since I last tasted shock and awe.

    I played a bit of hardcore Rush last night - I actually love the hardcore mode because I don't like being spotted and sniped by younger people with faster reactions than I.

    I think the only server rules were no spawn camping and no M320. We went up against a bunch of guys who were server admins, and we had to contend with a bit of spawn camping, so when I realised that my medic still had the noob tube, I figured they wouldn't mind if I triple killed three people as they jumped out of a burning Hummer. After all, I never ever break server rules, so statistically speaking I'd probably be fine just this once, right?

    How wrong I was - I was kicked from the server immediately! I do realise it was my own fault, but normally I'm such a goody two-shoes. Apart from that one time when the guy had No Stingers as a server rule, because that was just stupid.

    Kind of itching to play more Hardcore now, it is the mode of Kings!

    1st proper session on the PC, after some fiddling to get it running (welcome to PC gaming) Graphics aren't a huge step up but full 64 player Armored kill maps have so much going on it's great. There seems to be endless fiddling with graphics and controls as well as the low rank drag but assignments make it easier to get my favorite guns back again.

    Yeah, it ran out last night. We should have 1 week (2 max?) left on the donated funding so once I get a points code using that money I'll top it up, but dunno if I will beyond that. Every time I check it lately there's no one on it :(
