BFBC2 maps are TINY, and even the medium ones are in a straight line instead of wide and open. The size of the maps have been confirmed to be the same if not LARGER then bf2. You sure will be able to hide all you want.

I also agree there were way too many players, 32 people in that small of a space. ugh.

I Have to play on 16 player servers (Good luck finding many) on bfbc2 just to get the feel that I'm actually using strategy and teamwork in anyway instead of it feeling like a COD knockoff.

I really like the direction DICE has gone with BF3.

Also.. G36c This makes me a very very happy bovine. I'm curious to see which class it falls under. Being that it's the C variant, I'm going to assume that they'll give it to the engineers, which is awesome since I'm a heavy engineer user.

Also, I know it says destruction was turned down for the alpha build, but even if it's still a bit turned down (compared to BC2) in the full version, I'd be okay with that. It balances things a bit more, IMO.

*edit* One more thing!.. I say also a lot. D:

Yeah bringing back the g36 is awesome, though no folding stock animation.
In one of the videos of the alpha trial, I saw the MP7 under the Assault loadout... who knows which class is getting the g36c.

I want more square-ish maps, Atacama for example is too narrow. And I want more jungle, not a blazing hot and bright as the sun desert

Still looking forward to it nonetheless.

After a little bit of googling, I've found that the G36c is indeed going to be an engineer weapon. This is great news.

I'm sure we'll see some bigger/wider maps for 64 player matches.

Really? That will be one hell of a class if true.

I am so damn stoked for this game. I will have NO life when this game is released! It will be sleep, work, bf3. Rinse and repeat.

I agree with you to a degree but strafing while running will allow you to turn your body by at least 45* left or right and look around. It was agonizing in BC2 when you couldn't look around any as you ran and if you did, it would slow you down.
I think it will work well if they force you to come out-of run 'mode' to shoot, as they did in BC2.

Wow, Rush is limited to 32 players? I was expecting larger maps and 64 player Rush. I find Conquest to be pretty boring so this is a big letdown for me.

I'll still get the game but I probably won't play it as much as I thought I would.

I think it's limited to 32 in the alpha. But don't trust me.
