Yes I knew it had something to do with lighting. But to be honest I didn't notice any difference, apart from choppy gameplay lol. Thanks very much for the info

This is my first foray into the BF series.

I must say that this game sucks you in. I love a lot of the mechanics, and the attention to the graphics and sound are superb.

Where COD4 was awesome but felt like a DM (to me), this honestly feels like a war (to me).

Agreed. I skipped the other BF games. I tried one of them (not sure which one) and it wasn't my thing really.
This game is amazing addicting. I like being able to pick a specific class. Some days I get tired of the same thing over and over again. With this game it seems if I get tired of say sniping, I can move on to medic, or assault, which is almost a completely different strategy then the other classes. Keeps the game fresh for me.

same here, and not only that, the unlocks gives you diferent strategic approaches aswell. (now i nearly always take the tracer gun with me and if the team is good enough tanks dont last one bit)

plus this is only one game type and one map only... and im still not bored. and i have played nearly everyday since the beta release. i think this is a REALLY good multiplayer. for me its the same revolution in multiplayer like when i fisrt played counter strike. of course im not saying it will replace CS:S. its not the same thing.

my point beeing. i really enjoy this game.

Yeah, for one map, this game is really good already. I can't wait for more. I'm surprised they'd do the entire beta on one map though. Wouldn't they want to see if the other maps are balanced enough?

i dont think they want to try the mpas, but connectivity, etc...

they have been doing multiplayer games very good. Dunno, i suppose they are confident with the maps. (BTW the ps3 has another map).

i really want to see more maps and more play styles. squad rush looks good.

Some questions about Sniper Unlocks:

- the 12x zoom is the same as the stock M24? Or is it not working properly. That sucks if it is. Trying to unlock for ages (Dont use sniper alot) and I thought it'd be much farer than that.

- the only other bolt action sniper you can unlock. What's the point in this rifle? Does it just have more ammo in a mag? Im on HC mode mostly... Other than that, it has same reload, but worse damage and accuracy.

I tested the bullet drop on all 3 snipers, and they all have the same. Interestingly though, the Semi-auto one, is quite accurate from the hip at about 10meters. With a quick trigger finger, it could mean you no longer die as easy if you get caught with your pants down. Going to test to see how far it can be accurate at without using the scope.

Playing by myself on empty servers because no one else is online FTL Hence the weapon testing

I like the game so much I preordered it, I have never done this before but I still got the disk , not the dig. download

As for the Sniper scope, the 12X unlock at first glance does appear to be the same as the basic scope but if you compare them from say standing on the rock out cropping
when in attack mode looking at the cement stucture with the mounted heavy machine gun and TOW luncher (Tube launched, Optically tracked, Wire guided missile)
you can see that the objects (enemy sniper heads) appear larger with the 12X scope

Thanks for clearing that up! And I never knew what TOW stood for either

I'm not sure what's limiting me here, but I'm getting around in the mid 40's tops, on pretty much all the settings. >_<
Could anyone else with a 4870 report on their performance?
