So is BF3 still fun or is everyone level 50 now? Sale...

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I have been relaxing in Skyrim for a while but see BF3 is on sale for $29 on zon.
But coming into these later (BC2 I had first day) can sometimes be a bit frustrating.

So how is the battlefield for noobs around now?
I was thinking Engineer and Soldier.
Not even sure what fps I will manage with my 460.

Well, I would say it's pretty okay for a newcomer as of now.
BC2 will be unforgiving.
You can still manage. smile.gif

well I've been an average to good player and I stopped playing for a few months now that I started playing I feel like a noob. So many ppl are either so good or are hacking. Hopefully they are just that good. But I'm having a hard time adapting again and not feeling like a complete noob. I feel like they always headshot me as I get dropped so fast and I can't seem to do the same.

Your 460 will do just fine I've got another system with a i3 540 8gb ram and a gtx 460 hawk and it plays at 1920x1080 on high with AA off no problem. thumb.gif

BF3 doesn't have a lasting appeal...I stopped playing it when I hit colonel level 1 and haven't played for 2 weeks or so. And it's not the first time!
post #8 of 26
I just started playing yesterday. From bfbc2 it's a bit different takes a little getting used to. I tested out my 4890 and it ran the game perfectly on medium with some aa and high mixed it. After 30 minutes I was doing pretty good as far a scoring points was concerned.

I like it. very much so. and let me try and answer your question. Although at first there are obviously some disadvantages, it's not because of the guns. its more because of your lack of experience as with any new game you try. To this day i use the M4A3 because its cheap, powerful and very stable (in relation to kick and sight movement). The other guy is right, you don't need good guns to be good. But you also don't need bad guns to be bad. My reccomendation is to somehow try the full game before you buy it *cough* and if you like the feel of it, buy it. I don't think you will be dissapointed. BTW your gtx 460 will run it very well. 1080p at ultra with no AA or high with some AA.

4890 sucks for AA. also dx 10.1 doesn't do anything so i'd set it on dx 10, ultra settings with no AA and 4x AF and you should be able to run it great
