I really hate fanboy debates, but quite frankly, having played both, a lot, I completely agree. I get so bored of CoD because it's so limited.

Having said that, if you try to play BF like it's COD, I can see why you'd hate it. It is so much better as a team strategy game.

BTW, was voice chat in alpha? I am still waiting for a BF where voicechat is implemented really well, because it so tremendously increases the immersion (at least the competitive/teamwork element anyway).

Out of curiousity, may I ask why?
That sounds way too desperate.

I don't mind the fanboy insults from them, I usually just laugh them off because the word is just overused and bland already, but in my case, that "insult" makes no sense, as I own COD2, MW1, World at War, MW2, and Black Ops. I'm obviously NOT a "fanboy" of BF if I own nearly every COD released. Yes, I favor BF, I feel it's the better game, and gave my points as to why. I'm not buying MW3. The only reason I bought MW2 and BO (both grave regrets) is because I got them for $30 due to a misprinted ad for MW2 and some other method for BO I won't discuss. Their response is "lol u jus suck at cod i bet." Yup... them 12 year olds... they pwn my ears, I rage quit.

Voice chat: I have my own Mumble server, I didn't pay attention to in-game voice chat.

@Demize99 Will there be anyway to communicate via voice chat with other squads other than your own squad?

@jtownjt Voice chat is by default all team. You can then pick channels.
but VOIP is not positional.

I am glad there is VOIP!

Wow, hate noobs like you who jihad. You probably bunny hop all over the place too and CG at close range. At least try to play Battlefield tactically.

Hate it because you're one of the tank whores?

Only messing with you, you're cool. The only times I jihad is when some prick is being annoying in the tank just camping and taking out our entire team. After a few respawns, it's time to take matters more seriously to the extent of a suicide bombing. They come again in a new tank? That's fine, I'm already parked with the engine running waiting for them to return. After 2 or 3 jihads in a row, they get the message and give up the tank.

That point aside, you are mocking the MEC's war tactics, as in real life it IS their strategy. Do you think the US/etc. call the terrorists noobs/wimps/etc. because they rammed a jet into our buildings? No. They're terrorists, and they were tragically and horrifically successful with their attacks. War is a "do what it takes to win," game, not a "oh, I don't want to do that, that's weak," ordeal. Sadly all software has bugs and people abuse those bugs and small annoyances to their advantage to get that win. Some day when VR gaming happens it might not be a problem anymore.

I tactically blow myself up
Mainly when my team can't take the tank down and it's slaughtering us.

Yes I'm on a phone.
