I play just fine with everything on full ultra.

I agree with a lot of what you said. I have soured on the game in the last few days for many reason, one of which is the issues with getting mouse sensitivity dialed in.The game just feels weird to me. Jets are useless, and Javelins are about as useful as spitting at tanks. The UMP-45 is is a pea shooter and flares are basically an invisible sheild for jets unless you get someone that pops them as soon as they hear the the missle lock and wait then fire the stinger or 2 missles from the AA. Hackers are becoming an issue as well since PB is worthless right now, but they are working on it. Dice has said that they are going to adjust the jets power to be more potent, and dial the stingers back as well as improve the UMP-45 and spawn system. They say this but who knows.

They also need to fix eyefinity. The knife mechanic is a bit clunky and doesnt work most of the time for me. It is too slow to react. The animation is the best thing about it. I have seen that their is a hack that some people are running that allows admins to spawn in on anyone they want. this was used on my last night way too many times be the admins of one server. They denied it but I am sorry no one can be that sneaky. I was on hilltop in Caspian and i looked around me and no one was their and we had the flag. remember I have eyefinity so I have a broad view. I turn around start to run then bam I am knifed. This happened several times. I am a decent player, and up until this match I had been knifed about 5 times in my 34 hours played. All of a sudden I am hit 6 times in one match by 2 admins? Hmm, ya somethin aint right here. They said they use pbbans.com to monitor hacks, but I looked into it and that program is not going to work right now since the current hacks out totally get around it. PB has to be able to see the hack in order for it to work.

I have a sever and have talked to the hosting company and the makers of Procon a lot about cheat monitors and they told me their is no real great way to scan for them at the moment but they expect one to be ready soon. This game is full of so many holes right now is may as well be Called Swiss Cheese 3.

I think a whole thread was unnecessary, but I'm glad you at least called it your opinions instead of blatantly calling it BF3's problems. I disagree with nearly all of your cons; I don't want to make huge list, so I'll paraphrase.
  • I find jets to be well-balanced. The gun does plenty to aircraft; things can be downed in one well-aimed salvo, and the reload time keeps you from spamming. Once you get Stealth combined with Flares, staying alive is a non-issue; except for the overpowered mobile AA, so you focus on 'em or stay away. Speed is fine for the current map sizes; the flight ceiling is only a problem on the Canals map. Missiles never enticed me, and the rockets are for peppering anyway.
  • Sidearm damage is solid. If you're unhappy with taking 3 or 4 shots with a sidearm, there's a bigger problem there.
  • Most games overdo explosive radius/damage; if you've seen real grenade or shoulder-fired rocket explosions, you'll see they are fairly localized. I'll admit they are a bit underwhelming in BF3, but that helps prevent spam-rape, and I'm okay with that.
  • LMGs, AFAIK, are meant for suppression; rifles are generally the hard hitters. That being said, I have had no problem mowing people down with a Type 88.
  • The only choke points I've really experienced are the ones in Metro, which are a given due to design, and I guess in Seine Crossing if your team blows. What else?
  • Your point about not making it far in Rush is almost a given. From your BF2 experience, you know just as well as I do that this game is team-oriented. You either wait for the collective player skill to improve, or cut your losses.
  • I'll agree with your point about the maps. They are physically huge, but very little is actually put to use. If they did the Back to Karkand pack right, Gulf of Oman and Wake Island should be our salvation.
