Eurogamer points out that DICE has a heady to plan to get back behind the Battlefield 3 eightball, with a list of bug fixes coming in this week, as well as tweaks in the coming weeks to address the game's balance and performance, among other things.

Here's what's dropping over Origin this week:
  • Support for Intel's new Ivy Bridge product line (as yet unreleased)
  • Fixes for two reproducible client crashes:
    • Oilfields - Conquest Large - Fixed a client crash when users spawn in certain vehicles.
    • Canals - Rush - Fixed a client crash at the 2nd set of mcoms if the player drives a vehicle into the vicinity of the exploding rocket battery.
  • AMD Radeon 7xxx series performance improvements
We'll let you know as soon as DICE reveals any new improvements and tweaks in the coming weeks.

As a conversational aside, are you still playing Battlefield 3?

I am. Unlocked the L96 the other night. It's s*** and I've gone back to the M98B.

Also having fun rocketing people. Need 4 more for the 2nd engineer assignment unlock.

The only FPS I play at the moment. It's just to damn good of a game to say no.

Still rockin bf3.

I'm interested to know if people prefer conquest or rush.

At first I played rush exclusively, even being a long time bf1942 player, I think because of BC1 and 2.

But I've played nothing but conquest now for a while with no interest in going back to rush: 375 conquest and only 23 rush games according to battlelog.

I have no interest in going back to Rush, it's just a terrible game mode. Maps are squished and everyone just rockets the hell out of things. I just play nothing but Conquest, either normal or hardcore.

L96 is nice once you get the unlocks for it... M98B was s*** until you unlocked gunlegs/straitbolt and a decent scope too....

L96 has the least amount of bullet drop off.. handy for long range and can still be used close range effectively(unlike the M98B).

I still bash out the odd game of BF3 with my mates here and there, only time I play it really... not much fun just gunning solo anymore IMO.

Too bad they just broke BF3.
EA forums and BF3 forums and just googling + asking in any game server will net you with:

RESTRICTION: Corrupted File/Memory [98080696]
Punkbuster kick errors everywhere ahoy! Randomly occuring up to ~5 minutes apart.

BF3 is currently broken.

Keep trying to get back into it but I just can't. Sick of being killed by people with better weapons than me just because they've been playing longer, nothing more frustrating (before anyone asks, yes I am mad bro). Just give everyone all the weapons at the start, what's wrong with that? Pretty sure chess hasn't been so long lived due to people having to unlock new pieces. Plus it gets boring too quickly without being able to issue orders like in BF2 with the map view, or the commander. The commo rose update should help, maybe I'll try again then.

I am sure you meant to say "get out from behind the 8 ball" (even though that idiom does not really exist) or even better "on top of things".

I have been without broadband for 4 weeks now and am extremely nit-picky as a result. I miss bf3.

Potentially one of the coolest games I have ever played and so close to an experiance that could give you PTSD virtually (compared to COD anyway) but the fact that your average gamer can't even play COD properly means that bf3 never had a chance... even after all the time since release there are only 6 odd players on either team really playing and picking it up for just a couple days I was getting frustrated that I could learn everything the average player had and was being held back by them.

Having said that, without a doubt my best gaming experience in a really long time was late one night on some random 32p caspian border TDM server. First time on the map or the game mode - In rush the map is f*****g HORRID!!!!! but tdm its just a crossroads with a little town and some farm and forest around it. Lots of good players all moving around and playing enjoyably - nobody camping some bulls*** corner, lots of people using and destroying cover and utilising the whole map to flank and fight. The map starts with lots of cover and easy movement around the centre but by the end everything had been levelled, the gas station was on fire and smoke was pouring out across the road next to it and the fighting had moved off towards the river and any tree left standing for cover. It was like I was seeing what COD could be if they hadn't stifled its development for so long or what rush could be if it wasn't such a load of bollocks camp fest instead of the fast flank centric charging constantly fire fight it could be.

Basically. I begrudge a retards capacity for enjoying lying prone aiming at some wall even though they are attacking the f*****g mcom the douching distended segment of colons they all are. /teary

I still play occasionally. As far as rush vs conquest. I want to play rush, but in BF3 it just seems s***. I normally prefer rush type scenarios over conquest.

Yer BF3 Rush mode is balls. I want it to be good and fun, but it just doesn't play as well as conquest.


Also, I wish the snipers would use their SOFLAM. I carry my javalin around just for that purpose, I would guess maybe 1/5 matches I actually get to fire at a SOFLAM target, and about 1/3 of those matches the SOFLAM are consistantly used.

I've started playing recon purely to make sure the SOFLAM is up.

Btw, what servers do you guys play on?

Posted 09:45am 15/2/12
Yeah I used to throw up SOFLAM all the time. Don't often see people use it though. So these days I just use the MAV.

Last time I played (admittedly it was about 3 months ago) the SOFLAM just had a massive buff but still sucked balls.

Plane flies behind a leaf on a tree, SOFLAM drops trou.

It's gotten way better now. MAV's that lock on when a SOFLAM is used don't give the pilot warning, so it's pretty much a silent take down.

I usually play B2K maps, I just filter for Conquest and Conquest Large, Normal and Hardcore, and 1-10+ free slots. Play whatever mates want to play.

Still playing. I always play conquest but I always seem to die more then I kill, except on Merto maps, I can do Ok there. I dislike RUSH but Squad DM is kinda OK. I seem to use Recon kit the most followed by Support and Engineer and Assault. I can't help myself but to have sniper duels and try and beat my longest kill record.
