Is it just me, or do people find the new maps really boring? I find more and more I'm ignoring the B2K maps...

Try filtering them out mate and select only battlefield 3, and yeah, I've noticed heaps of old map servers up now that everyoens gotten over b2k. My filter settings:

Game - both selected (though you just select BF3 if you dont have B2K)
Region - oceania, make sure you tick NZ because you can get good pings there still
Preset - Normal and HC (IO is for f**ots)
Detailed - Ranked and Punkbuster
Game Size - 24, 32 and Other (64 players are for f**ots though might help you find more games).
Free Slots - 1-5 and 6-10
Mode - Rush, Conquest (the others are for f**ots though have their merrits).
Maps - none selected

^ those settings without B2k selected yielded 8 servers with people to play with

Yeah, but you can also include B2K servers with the old maps. That's what I've been doing to increase servers. I just move on when the new maps come on. There's the city map which I like. That goes off. The rest are meh.

Had so much fun last night, in a squad with some guys on TS, smashing every vehicle on the map with the SOFLAM and Javelin's, most fun I have had in ages smashing full choppers and chasing down jets with Javelins.

We had a squad of 4 guys, 2x Engi's with Javelins, 1x Support for Ammo and a recon guy on the other side of the map with the SOFLAM = EPIC FUN!

God I love this game.

Not a bug I don't think. If a Jav is laser guided it isn't a direct shot at you (if you look as the missile is shot it goes straight up in the air), thus it doesn't list the missile as tracking you, even though it is.


Don't know if that's confirmed, just an assumption.

Noticed this happening a lot since last patch. Not sure if it's intentional when locked on by SOFLAM or not.

They don't give a sound afaik, since they foolishly nerfed the stinger/strela so no one uses them, they instead use the buffed SOFLAM in combination with the JAV, you won't know it's coming until it hits and even if you did you can't flare it off (ECM should break the SOFLAM lock). I think they will undo the nerf to the stinger/strela and stop the JAV from locking SOFLAM targets next patch. But since that would be common sense there are no guarantees!

They will not stop the JAV from locking with SOFLAM. That is totally against their team-play orientation.

They may buff up the stingers/strela again because they are next to useless at the moment.

I wouldn't say stingers are useless, but they are substantially less effective. I guess the question is how easily do the developers want choppers to be destroyed because on Wake Island any chopper will attract about 12 stingers at once, not to mentioned 2 jets on their ass.

Whenever I'm playing a Wake Island map, the US will get a Viper chopper up with 2 guys repairing on either side, and 2 guys shooting with the guns. Practically unstoppable.

It may seem unstoppable, I assure you when you are repairing it and continually being shot out it doesn't seem all that unstoppable, and with poor gunners doesn't seem worth the life losses. You need a lot to go right for it to work

find that in conquest or whatever you just run for half an hour then get blown up by some wanker in a tank, then having to WAIT to respawn WTF..... alt tab and go do something else while i wait = ghey

love the m249 with no optics, extended mag. tear s*** up without having to reload

got the m416 as a medic, pretty nice !

I hate "bad luck" deaths. For some reason they happen to me quite a bit. I'll be flying in a helo....next thing I know I fall out dead. No one has shot me or anything. Didn't get team swapped. Just says bad luck... Sometimes I'm running along and it happens. Happens when I use the mortar too. Not sure what the go is with that.

Anyone having issues with rubberbanding, latency spikes, & jet-seat turbulance?
My FPS is rarely below 60, IGO Time (is this ping?) is around 30-40, but occasionally it spikes to 150+
It seems when my player comes in contact with another object (i.e. building, doorway, tank) I rubber band hardcore.

Current machine has been handling this game fine, even on my ADSL 1 service it was reasonable. I've now got cable 3.0 and its worse than ever. (speedtest records me at 46Mbps/2Mbps which incidently is the same my flatmate was getting on his laptop through wifi)

I've set up port forwarding. I have a direct connection to the router through a 15metre CAT6 cable. I've updated everything and i've even browsed the battlelog for comments/fixes. Most people are pointing to the latest patch release as the cause of the problem.

SO... anyone else have similar problems or can offer me a possible solution?

I try and stick to the air maps only, seems to be a lot more fun and jumping in a Venom with mates is hilarious. Though lately I've been joining those Metro servers that are knives/pistols only for something different.

probably because no one used them.. ive played nothing but support except to get some ribbons, and i thought the 12x scopes were useless.

just installed.. was 92% through downloading the 4.5gb patch and my internets capped out... called telstra and got bumped to next cap and the guy said he could do it straight away.. origin craps itself and requires a restart destroying the files. 8% through now... hope this game is fun

Is it just me or is BF3 in decline. I've noticed over the easter weekend, that apart from 1 or 2 servers there's basically not many full 64 player servers. Or is the trend now 48 and below?

Holy f*****g s*** if this game does not run like complete f*****g crap. It takes me about 4 attempts to get into a game and even then half the time it's pot luck whether it's running at 0.5fps or the normal 50fps I get and Origin.exe always seems to be using > 75% CPU for no reason.

Wtf is going on!?

you guys are still playing this?? I've been preferring Quake live over BF3 recently.. can't beat pure FPS games.

looking forward to the close quarters expansion though, when is that s*** coming out?

I love how you insinuate that there is something wrong with anyone still playing this since you're not and then ask when the DLC is coming out.

omg, what I mean is the game is boring and I'm suprised people still play it.. needs some DLC.

When I first played this style of game (BF2) I was like omg amazing jizz in my pants but then BC2 came out and then BF3 and it's starting to be all much the same now.. Previous to BF2 I was playing Quake, CS, SOF2 which started getting boring as I was playing those style games since 1995/96?. Then the battlefield style of games started coming out and comepletely rebooted my enthusiasm in gaming, (but now the battleield style games are starting to get boring). So I'm wondering now what the future holds for us in terms of gaming and keeping us (or just me it seems) interested in gaming and giving me that jizz in my pants wow factor.

edit: oh and now quake is starting to get a bit boring now, I spoke to soon.

Hey is anyone experiencing not so random disconnects at the moment? Like all the f*****g time? Seriously, me and 2 mates managed about 3 full rounds out of about 3 hours of gaming last night. And it wasn't just us getting disconnected, it was sometimes the whole server and sometimes maybe 10 people...

Then you would get the very helpful "You were disconnected from EA online" or "something went wrong" message just to make you feel better. Even got a new error message i hadn't seen before. "Cannot reconnect to server because it's not there any more" Dafuq??

Anyone else having dramas...? F*** i was ragining last night, repaired install, checked drivers, all good... but it can't be my end cause others are copping it too...

It's not a new box but was performing a lot better before the latest patch to BF3. It's an E8400, 4Gb RAM and a HD5750.

Yep I do and most of the time it's the "Something went wrong" message. Seems to co-incide with when I'm actually playing like I have half a clue.

Yeah last night i ninja jumped down and stabbed this bloke and just as his tags come up, the whole server died.
Other times i remember, it crashed within 5 seconds of me spawning in, crashed about 10 minutes into a round, crashed at end of round, crashed at about 5 tickets left...

Must be server end, cause it seems to effect everyone at the mo.

Had the game freeze a fair bit since patch. (console) Almost always happens when I'm thrashing the chopper around destroying s***, you notice the fps drop and eventually it will freeze during a large explosion or on post game screen. Memory leak issue? Also, since patch I've had a random friend on PSN show up in my BattleFeed.

Got a lovely 21-3 with 5238 points last night on Kharg Island. Heaps of full servers now, and especially loving the pistol/knive only servers for Metro, makes it a lot more interesting.

When ever I try to join a game fist up after loging in. It says "initalizing" when I try to connect to a server, BF3 starts up but does nothing so I have to close it manually. Aside from that its all good. I should have a go at the pistol knife servers.

The increased suppression effect has turned me off it. I get so pissed off when there is some noob in the distance spraying the sky with bullets and there I am, sitting completely still and firing exactly on the f*****s head but my bullets are going everywhere because oh noes bullets are so scary.

FYI for those who don't know.
Double XP this weekend.

Doesn't really bother me as XP isnt something I chase after especially.

If I did I would probably be sitting on Operation Metro 64 players servers.

Do what you will with it.

Everytime I go to play bf3, it fails to load on the first go. I have to wait for it to open, try, close, then try again, hoping the server is not now full. grr.

Same here, it'll take about 3 goes loading before i can get in. Usually unknown error or it just disappears.

Once it gets into game tho, it never seems to have any further loading issues joining another server after that.

Yesterday, i had to turn off origin all together and let BL fire it up again when i joined server. It just would not load game at all untill i did that for some reason... Would say loading, but no BF3 loading window would come up and it would just sit there loading in BL but not loading BF3... LAME... sigh, origin is so much fail.

CQ is not too bad, change of pace. I used to have issues with games not loading a lot. Not so much any more though, no idea why. Try repairing your installation, if that does not work, update punkbuster, update video drivers, prey to the dark gods etc.

Origin is not that great, I don't know why they are trumpeting it as something that can beat steam. Sure give it 3-5 years it might be OK but I would think they would have learned things where steam went wrong and troubles they have had over the years.

Ive found the best way to get hackers banned is to record them in game and upload to youtube with a private link and then report them through battlelog while providing the private link. I have got 2 people (ip?) banned this way and havent seen them online after a few days
