Its redudant if you go into bf3 via origin then open the battlelog browser. I found myself easily being able to go from websurfing, just open a new tab and have battlelog bookmarked. I can join a server faster than I could in other games.

Teamwork for every Battlefield game has been iffy. You've always had people who ignored your requests and camped vehicles and junk like that. I've always had to find specific servers and become a regular in order to find people who actually work together. Teamwork just isn't a given when you're playing with a bunch of random people, even if there are tools provided. That's just how it is in Battlefield games..
You people really need to stop being blinded by nostalgia.
If you had more fun with one than the other, that's fine. I find them all very enjoyable games. It's just your complaints about stability, hit detection, and mechanics seem backwards, because BC2 was worse in all those aspects.

And the hit detection is better with BF3? Really? I think it's atrocious. Getting behind cover and still getting shot or killed is one of my major complaints. Hundreds of youtube videos, personal experience along with my friends and brother are in agreement.

I wouldn't exactly say "backwards" considering that the fanbase appears to be extremely divided with BF3.

BF3 to me feels like an airsoft match everytime I jump in except when there's vehicles involved. BC2 on the other hand looks, sounds and feels like a wargame and is a better game in general when comparing the two.

One is an expansion, one is overpriced DLC. People are getting much less than they used to for their money. Keep in mind that DLC I mentioned for BF3 was Karkand, you got a lot less with the others.

Special Forces cost 30$ not 20$

8 maps
10 new weapons
4 vehicles


2 dlcs bf3

8 maps
20 weapons
3 vehicles

Not much of a difference there

Also what about bf armored fury? cost 10 only had 4 new maps no new weapons and six new vehicles.

THE GAME IS EASY PEOPLE! I'm not trying to show off or anything but I find other FPS games to be more challenging than Bf3. It's so easy to learn.

Peoples problems=solution.
1. Hit Reg = Low Latency server.
2. Graphics(people blending in) = SLOW YOUR GAMEPLAY DOWN!
3. Over powered weapons = Use something that shoots faster? Or maybe using the wrong type of weapon for the encounter?
4. Pricing on Premium= I've spent more money on useless things and games I hated. lol.

I love it....I bought the game and premium. that money has granted me well over 300Hrs of fun gameplay. and now with aftermath its even THAT much more fun. It well worth it and pushed me to upgrde my PC which i love games to be on the cutting edge where you need decent hardware to push the game to its limits.

It was an even bigger complaint in Bad Company 2. Hundreds of youtube videos to point that out as well as well as my own personal experience. None of them have been all that great, TBH, but BF3 is definitely much better than BC2 in that department.

I won't argue about BF3's community being divided, but how is that any different from past Battlefield games and their expansions?

This last one just makes no sense to me at all. Battlefield 3's sound design is absolutely amazing and everything sounds so much more natural. I don't know how BF3 would feel more like an airsoft match when weapons in Bad Company 2 took more shots to kill than weapons in BF3. I can understand that these are just opinions, but really? Battlefield 3 improved so much on immersion that it's basically unmatched for me as far as multiplayer games go. That's not to say I didn't think BC2 had excellent immersion and sound design, but that's one thing BF3 really improved upon and did insanely well.

I'm seeing a lot of revisionist history in defense of arguments over a subjective discussion. It's the very essence of silly.

Based on what I've read, I'm pretty sure I've been gaming longer (a lot longer in some cases) than a good majority of you. You don't like BF3? Cool. You love it? Great! My first multiplayer experiences were with "Modem Wars" and "Trade Wars" on a Wildcat! BBS.




I only mention this to say; I've been gaming a long time on too many platforms to name, so I have a bit of perspective.


I see lot of people's technical complaints about BF3 and read "USER ERROR". Check your gear and get back to me when you're "Five by Five".

Battlelog?? Different? Sure...but it works great. I think it's a major plus for the game. Everything in one, easy to navigate place. I really don't understand the problem here. However, again, this is subjective. It works for me. I love it.

BF3 is great fun for me! I liked the mechanics of BF2 better, but I won't let that stop me from enjoying what BF3 is, IMHO, the best, SIMPLE, large scale shooter there is w/vehicles on a large map. I want something deeper, I jump into ArmA.


...and with that, it's time to hit the ole' dusty trail.

If you are getting ArmA 3, I want to play with you.

I was excited to see it come out and then played it very little. Yet again I realized how sick I am of playing modern combat type games.
post #230 of 308
I was extremely pumped for the release of BF3, I preordered and everything. But I think it just kind of fell short of my expectations and I could never get past that when I was playing the game. Still a great game just that the novelty of it wore out very quickly.
