Why? Sonic Boom is useless if the map isn't large enough. Also jets are there to help the ground forces and take out enemy jets. You're not there to fly around sonic booming. Play HAWX or a flight sim for that.

Strike at karkand FTW. Also anti baserape is awesome, baseraping can make the experience reeeally frustrating.

I think i remember BF2 having joystick support, so why wouldn't BF3 have it? or at least some patch should give support for joysticks if its not in the release...

Although, they will have to slow the jets down from their real-life speed, otherwise the maps would just be too big for any sort of exciting gameplay.

I thought most PR servers were EU :/

It would be cool if the aircraft carrier on maps was actually a realistic distance from the coast, not located on the map(maybe have a separate, smaller one for the helo's), and pilots actually had to fly for a while to get to the target.


EDIT: Found this when searchign bor BC2 mods, kind cool, but more of a utility:

What happens if you've got both: a joystick and also a gamepad plugged into your pc while playing BF3? Will that cause any interferences?
I think it's fine Well.. not sure about joystick, but I have a 360 controller plugged in and mouse + keyboard, never had a problem ^^

Baseraping can be fun sometimes, especially if you're not the victim.

Crysis and Warhead actually look better and strain a rig more than Crysis 2, so it won't be worth much. Definitely like that second part there; best possible choice is to get parts near BF3 launch.

Joystick I have no clue about.. even if it works better, I don't want one on my desk.
In my experience, flying planes is magnitudes better with a joystick, partially because of the sheer amount of turning that's necessary; being able to just tilt the stick in one direction is way more appealing than having to slide the mouse and lift it back to the other side of the mouse pad to continue turning.

As for helicopters, I couldn't get used to a joystick in Desert Combat or BF2... a mouse seemed to make more sense, probably because in a helicopter the pilot actually has to aim the crosshairs at the target. Though after BC2, I feel like I'm in the same situation as planes used to be; turning with a mouse is a hassle, probably because of the relatively tiny maps.

Regardless, I'm buying a new joystick for BF3. My old Thrustmaster doesn't stay centered anymore.
