Most console fanboys moan and groan about how using a controller is just a "preference" over a mouse and keyboard, and that they're perfectly okay with it....
But all of a sudden, using superior hardware (aha! now they admit how crappy controllers are for the VAST MAJORITY of games) should now be considered, "cheating"? Really? Good grief. If a keyboard and mouse are now seen as being THAT advantageous, Microsoft should have done something about it before they invested in a controller. What's that, a controller is just fine? Well, you can't have it both ways. Anyone complaining over someone's ability to use a mouse and keyboard on a console is just scared that their controller skills aren't going to match someone who's actually proficient with a mouse and keyboard (aka, superior hardware - not some devious tools of a cheater/hacker).
Yes, that's right. You still need to be skilled at using the tools at hand - a mouse and keyboard isn't an automatic advantage for someone if they're terrible in the first place. I find great joy in listening to the console peasants now complaining about an "advantage" with a keyboard and mouse, whereas before, most arguments with console fanboys were, "NUH UH, A KEYBOARD AND MOUSE ISN'T BETTER....IT'S JUST A MATTER OF PREFERENCE!" rolleyes.gifrolleyes.gifrolleyes.gif
Also, we should ban flight joysticks and steering wheels as well across ALL PLATFORMS. Those obviously give an unfair advantage when it comes to flying/driving. And while we're at it, let's ban laser mice that go above 200dpi, as higher dpi might give an advantage - heck, you know what, let's just give everyone trackball mice again...that'll teach everyone not to cheat!rolleyes.gif

I don't know about you, but when I turn on my Xbox I want to play with a controller, and not mouse and keyboard. I think most would agree with that. Mouse and keyboard and all sorts of gaming equiqment for PC is fine, but consoles were never meant to be played with mouse and keyboard.

My only complaints at this stage of the game is as follows. Reward those using Soflam as Recon or in a Tank when a vehicle is destroyed. F2000 and Usas(explosive rounds) have to be nerfed. I can't tell you how many times I turn and fire at someone with a Huge 240 and they kill me instantly with an F2000. And the Usas well I think everyone understands that bs. It will be interesting to see how terrible these noobs actually are when they nerf the Usas. If they are going to nerf the best gun in the game "Scar" that should have kept its power firing a 7mm round the f2000 has to go down.

Scar needs extended mag, but there's always AN-94 for that.

Yes, give me VOIP please.
The perfect VOIP for me would go something like this.

Option to hear only players on your team by default. Then able to switch to squad only, if that is too much coming at you.
Then finally the option to mute all team players. And the cherry on top would be if at the end of the round, all 64 players could get some trash talk in for 15 seconds or so.

faster m320 reload time .. aka a buff

sounds stupid to buff an op grenade launcher like that


add on top the attachement update that didnt make sense at all ... way to go dice for making useless tweaks and crapping on the game yet again

I ask one thing and only one thing of DICE:
Please, please, fix the Crossfire issues. Scaling was perfect on the first release but has gotten worse with every patch
