Screw that video. It shows a bug. A bug that will be fixed. You shouldn't be able to spot through trees like that. That's fine. Once that's fixed, the 3D spotting is fixed.
Oh, I also personally reported the video to EA for breaching the NDA. I hope whoever posted it loses their EA account.
Heh, if you want to seem like a spoilt baby that's fine.
This. Is. Battlefield 3. Made by DICE. Who have taken everything they've learnt from BC2 and piled into this game.
Firstly, blah blah blah whinge whinge whinge. The 3D spotting in BF3 is BROKEN. It doens't work as it should. For instance, I was about to spot someone running behind some cover, I hit Q and then, directly above the person I was looking at, 3 people lit up that I couldn't even see, my team mates killed them and I got spotting points for that. That's BROKEN. When it;s fixed, that WON'T HAPPEN. When it's fixed, people won't be able to hide in a bush spamming Q and spotting people they can't even see.
That's the problem people on the Alpha forums are presenting, except what they REALLY mean to do is continue the moaning and creating over 3D spotting in BC2. Because they whinged about that as well. Calling it a wallhack and a cheat then. Well, screw those people. The game clearly wasn't made for them.
3D spotting isn't going ANYWHERE, so cancel your game now. Or, shut up.
But hey, I'm not going to even bother attempting to argue with you, Grizzleboy, because I remember last time. It's like slamming your head off a brick wall.
So, in closing, yes, bad DICE, sorry they didn't reskin BF2 and push that out of the door. Ops, they made a game from the ground up and took everything they've learnt in the last 6 years making successful games (Mirrors Edge, BC2, etc) and put it into this game.
Except that people CAN and DO sit in bushes shooting and killing people......which is where this WHOLE argument started. You can spot a whole load of enemies with one Q press in BC2 aswell.
I wonder if you have actually played BC2 lol.
Its not a NEW problem.
It ALREADY existed in BC2 and people have campaigned against it SINCE BC2 launched. People are just upset that it managed to find its way into a new game that is supposed to be different from BC2.
Also, your failure to comprehend situations or context knows no bounds.
Lets put it this way.
A person camps near an MCOM holding an M249 in a bush with a clear line of fire to the MCOM area.
All they have to do to make it hard for the enemy to arm the MCOM is have people spotting the enemies.
They can just wait for orange triangles and fire away. They never need to see the enemy. They never need to reveal themselves. All they have to do is lie in a bush and fire at the orange triangles.
The worst part about this is that IT HAPPENS IN BC2 ASWELL so for you to call it a bug ruins any kind of credibility you could ever have.
You seem to be unable to comprehend that spotting can and is, also done by team mates, so any team mate that spots an enemy going towards the MCOM will create a nice orange triangle for you to fire at. You can watch the triangle jump, dive and run, but you never see who you're firing at. Even if YOU cant spot out of the bushes, you will STILL get triangles to fire at.
Its not even like you could say "well its like on the Battlefield where soldiers share positional data of enemies" or whatever because as I will have to point out to you once more, YOU CANT SEE OUT OF THE BUSH.
For you to DEFEND this kind of thing and to be totally OBLIVIOUS to the fact that it ALREADY EXISTS in BC2 as a "feature" and not a "bug" that will be "fixed"....it just goes to show how worthless your opinion on this matter is because once again, you fail to understand simple concepts and would rather spend much of your posting defaming character or putting words in peoples mouths and then arguing with them about the words you put in their mouths.
Or maybe you wont
try and argue with me about cancelling my order in your next post since I never actually said I would or even mentioned anything to do with 3D spotting affecting my purchase etc. Or will you be looking to put words in my mouth again just to have something to say?
Here's some more irony and hypocrisy for you to consider:
-You consider people being able to spot people they cant see a "bug"
-Yet you consider people being able to accurately track,shoot at and kill people they cant see a "feature" that is valid simply because it existed in Bad Company 2.
And some more:
-You constantly told me to stop commenting my opinion in the "boycott BF3" thread simply because I didn't agree with the boycott. Your reasoning was that I should leave the thread as my opinion being different meant the thread was irrelevant to me and that you couldn't stand people coming into threads to discuss things that were irrelevant to them.
-In that thread you said you arent even interested in buying Battlefield 3
in an attempt to rebutt an argument I made towards your reasoning for supporting the boycott (which will obviously be unveiled to be a blatant lie after BF3 launches and you buy the game), yet here you are in a thread full of people who ARE interested in buying BF3 after its released. Surely this thread is "irrelevant" to your interests given that you dont even want to buy/play Battlefield 3.
But then you do want to play Battlefield 3 because you made an effort to play the alpha.
But then you dont actually care because you wont buy the game anyway.
But then you do care because you are in your own words an avid Battlefield game supporter and have been reporting bugs like a good alpha tester.
But then you dont care because you wont be buying Battlefield 3 anyway.........
You can only laugh. Your lack of understand towards simple concepts and hypocritical posting knows no boundaries. No wonder you feel like you're banging your head against a wall when we converse, what with all the common sense and logic I use.
Never mind though. I think I'll leave you on ignore from now on.Edited by GrizzleBoy - 8/1/11 at 6:06am
