[mp1stBF3] Close Quarters Focuses On HD Destruction Without The Distractions, Tweaks to Grenades,... - Page 4

post #31 of 72
While the destruction on metro maps is nice, I feel the amount of DUST is highly unrealistic. Debris, yes. Bits of wall/concrete, yes. But the 3 tons of dust and smoke that lingers for 15 seconds? NO. It's like landmine went off on a sandy beach, the sheer amount of dust thrown up from bullets/explosives is plain silly and it turns the game into 30 minutes of screaming "I CAN'T SEE ANYTHING OMG" at your monitor.

I mean what the hell do you call this:

I do hope that DICE realize that suppression and the freaking SUN BLOOM is enough to cause massive headaches. If we need to obsecure the enemy's vision, we can use smoke rounds/grenades and some trigger-happy idiot with an LMG.

Did I mention the sun bloom? I don't care, I'm going to mention it again. Whoever thought of making the sun that bright compared to the surroundings needs to strapped to a chair and forced to look into halogen floodlights for an hour. The sun should only be that bright if you look DIRECTLY into it, not if you're even vaguely in it's direction. No, don't tell me to turn down brightness/gamma. It means the shadowed places become so dark that you could have 5 people shooting from there and you wouldn't see them.

Also suppression can die in a fire and if it's not greatly nerfed it will completely ruin the upcoming xpac. Nobody enjoys flipping coins deciding where their bullets will go next.

^Could not agree more.

The crappy destruction in BF3 makes me feel sad that the Red Faction series was cancelled.

Yahtzee's BFBC2 review should sum up BF3's dust visibilty problem up nicely, see from 2:24 onwards (if the link doesn't work)...

I have been gifted this game last month and I have to say I'm enjoying the MP, haven't even touched the SP, and only played 2 Co-Op Missions and got bored really quickly, MP is were the fun is at, close quarters will be fun but, I can see allot of ppl mindless running around with 870MCS and shooting everything that moves, hope they make the maps in someway that Recons can still fight from a longer range.

Eh this is really underwelming. I don't know how they could have thought this would have been an impressive trailer.
This isn't really destruction it's miner chipping most of the time.

I'm still stuck at the part where the author says "Battlefield 3 fans"........that POS has fans?

I have been playing BF since 1942 release day, pre-ordered every PC game in the franchise + expansions........never have I played a game as crap as BF3

Buggy beyond belief, absurd use of bloom, suppression, scope reflection, no in-game VOIP, did I mention bugs?

I wont be buying an expansion for BF3 until they actually get the vanilla version in a playable state

I've got about 120 hours on it and a tonne of "match completed" badges.

Seems quite playable to me.

Wait, previous Battlefield games didn't have suppression? If that's true then I'd like to throw TWO bricks at whichever idiot at DICE came up with the concept.

I'd like to throw bricks at the entire design team and the engineers behind the horrible Frostbite engine.

Yes I said it, Frostbite is a horrible engine. It might make some impressive visuals but good lord its a buggy mess
