*A wild support appears!*
You: "Ammo! Give me ammo!, I need some ammo!, I'm out of ammo!, give me some dam ammo!"
Support: *Runs away.*

*A wild medic appears!*
You: "Medic! I need a Medic, Medic! Need a Medic over here!"
Medic: *Runs away.*


What happened....

The Battlefield Community I have grown to know from BF2 and BF2142 has disappeared. Even in Bad Company 2, there was atleast SOME sort of awareness in terms of team support and rhythm. I know my tittle says BC3, because the game released in 2011 is infact BC3. It is not battlefield, there is nothing battlefield about it. No ingame VoIP? Wheres the UN-Caps? No push maps? Run around in circles Re-capping bases? COD Style run and gun? EXTREME player ignorance? Argue with me, post infoless, un-meaningful posts, try to tell me how much you love it. IDC, people are too easy to accept an inferior product. Look how much the game is selling for? It was half off a month after its release... it was CLEARLY a gigantic slap to the PC community. I also played it on console, absolute rubbish. If you play alone its garbage. And when you play with friends, someone is always crashing or getting errors.


I understand PC gamers make up only 3% of the market, and the days of good PC titles have ceased, but there is a limit to how hard you can kick some one in the face. And as a long time Battlefield fan, i do believe i have been kicked in the face. Hard.

The Battlefield Community you have grown to know in BF2 and 2142 are probably still playing BF2 and 2142 because they know that BF3 is just CoD with vehicles.

Just saying. thumb.gif

I'll be reinstalling BF2 and 2142 this week. Tired of Battlefield of Duty: Gamma and Exposure Warfare

If you don't like it you don't like it. I don't see why you would need to really make a thread about it *shrugs*
post #4 of 52
yeah nobody is a team player in the game. its because EA hyped it up at release and every little kid wanted it for their pc that mom and dad paid for or their console.

its really a shame, as bad company 2 was a way better experience, everybody worked together and the support people (assault, medic) were actually helpful.

I agree and feel BC 2 is the better game, play wise. I have more fun with it. I haven't played BF 3 for a while now, stopped at level 17 and went back to BC 2. I'll play it more at some point but not any time soon.

BF 3 to me, feels like pretty graphics with poorly designed map and game play. Maybe by the end of the year it will be decent, maybe not. I have better games to play at the moment.

I actually prefer playing BC2 over BF2 and BF3. I own and played all 11 Battlefield games and all DLC/addons with the exception to paying for items in Heroes and Play4Free and I'd say BC2 is in my top 3 favorite Battlefield games.

I played the Xbox 360 and PC version of BC2 and enjoyed it very much.

Aaahhhh, OP.


You just need more homies to play with consistently. That's all it is. thumb.gif

The game can be rather unfruitful when played all by your lonesome...

I love everything about BF3, and the same with BFBC2 but not so much now that BF3 is out. I'd never go back to BF2 - urgh!
I loved it during its time because it was the peak of FPS gaming during its time. Now? Not so much. The uncooperative nature of other players is to do with just that - other players.

So because BF2 isn't in its prime we should accept mass clusters of people who don't even attempt to use any teamwork, just sit back and snipe, go rambo with medic or sit and bipod my MG. That is basically the whole story of bloody BF3, nobody goes undoubtedly for caps unless you walk past them, while the skilled players just run in circles and protect a cap every so often. It isn't even that fun alone when compared to other run and gun FPS games. There is no ingame VIOP (Lolwut, no VIOP in a game that is based of teamwork) while the Q rose is stupid, nobody is gonna hear NEED RIDE in the middle of a game while they don't even give a crap.

Also no VIOP. So much could be solved by just adding VIOP, but nooooo, we wanna make our draconian DRM (Yes, Battlelog and origin are draconian DRM, not as bad a Ubisoft) perfect and hide it, make sure everybody wants to use it so we will take away VIOP and put it into our DRM.
