[Enter BF3] Battlefield 3 Open Beta Ending In 8 Hours! - Page 7

post #61 of 137
This is going to be a miserable 2 weeks. I LOVE Caspian. I really like how blown up vehicles spew out smoke and stay on the road for a while, it looks really nice. I can't wait.

Did anyone else notice that on 64 player Caspian, the squads can hold 6 members? A few times I had 6 in a squad. I'm not sure if that was a bug, but I hope not.

Snipers are EZ. I'm loving the scope glint, it makes all these idiots that just LOOOOVE sitting around sniping such easy humiliating targets. On Metro I once snuck around to the back of dumbass island and slit 3 snipers' throats without any of them even noticing.

All final products have bugs. From the changes list so far, they've definitely fixed the major bugs that were headaches in the beta, the most important being squad management. The rest of the bugs I can deal with for a little, because the only one that really plagued the beta was the underground bug which only happened on Metro (at least in my experience). Hit registration is definitely confirmed to be improved; it wasn't horrible but what little issues it had were all server-side. I'm really loving that EA/DICE are going with quality servers with ~40 ping. I was playing on a TX, NJ, and even CA server with 40-60 ping according to the server browser. Hopefully that is accurate. BC2 servers had horrible pings aside from ~5 that were in Brazil with godly bandwidth down there.

no IR LMG love this morning? Nothing like playing metro with IR scope and being able to see every single person instantly, even the bush wookies.

Oh god, THIS ^^

I got tired of the same campers appearing on that damn island. But, like you say, it was very satisfying to sneak over there and put them out of their misery.

However, most didn't learn their lesson and continued to swim over there after they'd respawed, only to be shot before they got half way

Lol. The hilarious thing is I drew back into the water a little, waited for them to get back on the island, and did it again. It took maybe 3 occurrences for them to learn and stop going to the island. I love trolling annoying BF players like that. Easy rack-up of kills since it takes them multiple attempts at the same antics to learn from it. It also happens with tanks, where I C4 ram them when they're obnoxiously base raping. They try to come back ~5 times in a row in the tank to the same spot, so I just chill at base with the engine running and C4 loaded up, watching the horizon waiting to see their tank's silhouette. Lol eventually I can picture them respawning and running past the tank, giving up.

Battlefield: fed up with a really annoying player base raping or sniping? Annoy them right back until they give up.

I thought this was going until 11am central time so I logged onto battlelog and it said the beta was over. Massive heartbreak.

Loooove sniping on Caspian border. Especially from the tower or boulders in the middle of the map. I appreciate why they included scope glint, but I think they need to tone it down. It basically looks like a flashlight. A little too obvious.

I agree that the glint looks more like a FLASHLIGHT lol, but it's funny because I think DICE did it on purpose.

So you're one of the obnoxious antenna snipers? Ugh. Well, thanks to the glint, I sometimes randomly spot multiple snipers up there, and blast them all away with my SMAW from far. I'd love to see my rocket flying into their faces from their point of view. Why do snipers think that the highest, most obvious, out in the open spot is "good" for sniping?

Haha that sounds familiar...

On Caspian I fired I fire off a tank round at the top of the antenna every time I go past for free double/tripple kills.
