I'm pretty new too; but one problem im having: I played the beta and there were no connection issues I mean it ran fine so I eventually preordered the game thinking it would be similar and gameplay it is I mean it's really fun, but the lag I get on some servers is unbelievable.
So one thing you may want to keep in mind is your connection. Mine isn't great but it worked fine in the beta and my pings not too bad. But sometimes it's not even worth bothering when the tank your driving keeps going forward instead of turning around the cluster of boulders because of lag.
I've looked into it a bit and I'm not the only one that gets it, and on some servers I'm fine! But on a good 85% of the servers I play it can't even be described as lag, it's more like someone cut one of the cables along the line! So that can get annoying but so can all lag
I've heard some people blame the servers and others blame the bf3 code but I think it may have something to do with the sheer size of everything; maps are huge, player count up to 64 players, variety of vehicles. I mainly think this because I've played cod and other games for a while and as long as I find a good server there's no lag at all the main difference is the size of the teams in cod the max is 16? But don't get me wrong I really am enjoying bf3 just hope they patch whatever the problem is soon!
