    I need to get involved with some EG games again. I tried playing the new maps last night and gave up after 20 minutes, because it's no fun spending ages running around trying to find any sort of action only to be killed as soon as you spot another person.

    It would also help if I knew what guns are actually still any good after the 50 or so patches the game has had, everything I used felt like a peashooter because it probably got nerfed at some point.

    All the eurogamers who actually play with each other on xbl rather than just post pseudointellectual pc handwringing bollocks on the forums, love the shit out of biggy.

    I should also add that I have been taken places I thought were impossible, all on a motorbike. I'm sorry for my outburst.

    Everything is balanced to the point where there aren't really any bad guns anymore. The worst ones are SCAR-L, LSAT and PP-19, but even they're usable. The weapons balancing is actually fantastic, they have done a great job with it. They didn't even need to change any of the guns in the recent patch.

    Why do DICE balance weapons? Surely they should be true to real life and leave it at that!

    Well that's all the achievements attained (bar that fucking annoying co-op one for drop em like liquid) so I think I'm done with BF3.
    Brilliant game; but everyone has moved on.
    As others have said over 12 months is far too long to be supporting a game on console. Admirable; but the competition is tough with so many new releases vying for attention and if I'd paid for Premium I don't think I'd have got my monies worth time wise.
    Bring on BF4!

    You dare to strike Scurrcules!?

    I've always found it nice to go back to, the gameplay is stellar regardless of new releases. It'd be nice if console gamers could get out of the mindset of ditching a game after a couple of months and buying a new one, but that's marketing for ya I suppose.

    I think the point is that it's not a couple of months; it's 15 months at least. That's a LONG time in game terms.

    Not really, it's still a good game. At its best, there's still nothing else quite like it.

    15 months really isn't that long for multiplayer games, especially ones with new content added to them regularly. I still play BC2 fairly regularly now, and how long have people played Counter Strike for on the PC?

    I tend to prefer to stick to a few multiplayer games rather than move between different ones. A new game ever 2 or 3 years, with DLC in between, is about right for me. I hope BF4 stats are combined with BF3s on battlelog. I'm a bit sad and like to look at my stats, always thought it was a shame that my BC2 and BF3 stats were separate, and very strange that BF3 console and BF3 pc stats are separate

    My second evening of End Game was dedicated to Capture the Flag, and was therefore inherently more fun than the evening previous.

    Of particular note was a game we lost 3-2 on the new snowy map, where the vehicle density of scout chopters, tanks, bikes and AA jeeps made for a frenetic to-and-fro of flag capturing, holding and chasing down our own captured flag. Swooping in in the copter to pick up the flag carrier who has just had the rider of his bike sniped away from in front of him, then dumping the carrier out via parachute to the base before turning and blowing up a damaged incoming tank with heli-gunfire felt properly epic.

    That other map - that looks like Isla Brownleaves off BC2, is also a rip-roaring CTF success, and again the speed of vehicle captures, coupled with the relative bottlenecks that lead to exciting firefights over dropped flags, dealt up plenty of proper Battlefield moments. Having placed C4 in the road in a desperate attempt to apprehend a tank with the flag, it wasn't at all disappointing when the carrier jumped out of the tank to take to a bike, and having got up speed en route to the C4 was then exploded into little pieces by somebody hitting the C4 with an RPG just as the bike went over it.

    Sure, the new patches of long grass make it even easier for players of a certain persuasion to lie down sniping ALL THE TIME, but I guess that is their loss.

    The chopper flag carrier is the last achievement I have left, it's really hard. The flag rarely seems to be away from the enemy base, if you get it out of there, you tend to get it all the way pretty quickly, and if you take the chopper down then you have AA's, tanks, LAVs, RPGs, all firing upon you. Already died tons of times attempting it, it's especially annoying when the flag carrier decides he'd rather race off on a bike instead of jumping in my helicopter.

    At least you don't have to get them back. Just picking them up is enough. I got very lucky and got it first attempt.
    Capture the flag is brilliant. Great feeling having the flag carrier on your bike, dodging and weaving!!!

    I had the fortune to have the flag carrier in my Live party, so I just yelled "GET IN", and we were away, with all the kinds of fire you describe spattering and exploding around us. Brilliant stuff.

    I'll try again later. CTF is a really fun game mode so I'm happy to go back to it. I'm mostly enjoying firing the javelin at guys on dirtbikes, especially when they're escaping with our flag.

    Unfortunately this is a typical night on Battlefield for me these days:

    This achievement is so fucking annoying. I sat there with my helicopter parked and the guy with the flag ran past me.

    Aaand now some level 100's joined to ruin the game for everyone.

    The demo/beta used operation metro while being a good map isn't really reflective of a typical battlefield map, plus the beta being buggy ad hell wouldn't help.

    Not a patch on battlefield 2 but bf3 is the best shooter around by a country mile IMO anyhow.

    I'll add you when I'm on again.

    So, if I try to give this another go (no interested in the recent CoD), and I don't shove the lame SP back on the hard-drive, how much space do I need to free up to be able to run with the dlcs?

    And if I jump in now, am I likely to be faced with masses of empty servers or maps that never get played?

    I expect to get murdered, of course, but we've been reminiscing about the early days of Battlefield: Modern Combat, from way back, and I'd love to get into a decent online shooter again.

    Yeah sure, I'll add you tomorrow. I'm a dodgy pilot though so I apologise in advance for killing us in an attempt to land. :D
