[Se7ensins] DICE Speaks Out About A Battlefield 3 Patch - Page 3

BF3 does have a learning curve, and a lot of people don't seem to understand this. They believe that they can simply hop in and begin racking up the kills and points. The big issue is that when this doesn't happen is that they attribute their failure to the fact that they have few or no unlocks. It becomes a very vicious cycle where they decide they want to play, they get destroyed, then they look to blame someone/something for the reason they got destroyed. No one wins, and at least one party believes there is a problem. The real issue is that people don't put in enough time for the game to really work for them. Someone that thinks they're going to be good after only 2 hours of play time is sorely mistaking. It takes 10's to 100's of hours on the clock for anyone to truly learn how the game works. Gunplay is one thing. Learning how to react properly and use your environment to your advantage is just as important, and the new guys don't understand this.

I agree that the no-VOIP issue needs to be fixed. That's a big one. Beyond that, it's all about figuring out where the major issues are and fixing them. If they were to "fix" everything that every player told them, not only would nothing ever get done, but the game would be a train wreck and a half. As it stands right now, the game is very fun, it's intuitive, it requires a learning curve, but once you get the hang of how it works, it really does work. Personally, I liked the game before everything got rebalanced (it takes longer to kill now due to less accuracy), but I also like the game now. It just takes a little more patience to actually get that kill now.

To each their own. I understand exactly where they're coming from though. They aren't going to appease everyone.

My only complaint is that the game was terribly sluggish until I got more than 4GB of RAM. Other than that the game is great and I suck massively at it biggrin.gif

You don't believe me? Here you go:

This guy (in the video) is a terrible player. He hears of a glitch and then immediately goes to try it out and puts a video out showing you it and saying "you'll love this. Go do this". Props for showing it to the world, though.

So your saying a shotgun like attachment that acts like a fray round at 30 feet and killing you isn't realistic? I disagree.

If you really want voip, then join a clan and get teamspeak or ventrilo.

I just hate how this game is 100% about attachments. If you are starting new, you will get OBLITERATED by people. BF3 rewards veterans by giving them extremely overpowered weaponry.... granted, they "earned" it, but any time I see a team stacked by people over level 40 I just leave the server. No fun to be had there, just 2 bullet annihilation by someone who plays the game a lot more than you do.

It's kinda funny in that it feels like BF3 is an MMO... the more time you invest, the more you raep. Those with busy lives need not apply to this game.

Played this game from release till I got to colonel, realized this game was boring and never played it again.

For me to play it, I would need random gunfire deviation to leave so that it takes skill to shoot, ingame team voip so that we can have teamwork, and tank buff so that they are useful again and this stops being COD.

What's that, the longer you spend playing a game, the better you get? A novel idea!

It doesn't matter what attachments the people have. Someone with 100 hours vs someone just starting is always going to do the raping.

The 100 hours guy can rape if he logs onto the noobs profile because of his experience, not his attachments. It's knowing the game that wins rounds, not attachments.

There is no such thing as 2 bullet annihilation unless you're inadverntantly joining hardcore servers.

I think Dice has done a great job so far. They've been working on one patch after another and doing a decent job of listening to the community. I'm sure VOIP will make an appearance in the near future.

One thing I'd like to see an adjustment made to is jets and choppers. With the Stinger, it's impossible to lock-on to a jet if they're flying at a decent speed, which I guess makes sense, but those damn choppers just bomb the **** outta everyone, and get another flare use too quick. They're fun and all but should just be bumped down a notch, people sit up there the whole round and do too good of a job at putting a damper on the gun fights. I love all the vehicles and air craft, just need to increase flare-reload time and Stinger lock-on distance I think.
