[Official] Battlefield 3 Information & Discussion Thread - Page 1482

post #14811 of 52874
ive been sick for the entire week, so i have played the beta for the past two days pretty much nonstop. I have logged well over 14 hours so far (my god...) and, based off of what i have have seen so far, all i can say is "bunk."

its very COD-like. blech. and the graphics are cartoony, even more so than CODBO. in the only level that is open to play, the entire first area (it is rush) has massive meshing problems so you either fall through the floor, or you are constantly vibrating up and down because the game cant tell whether you are falling through or standing on it (which makes aiming a PITA). at the end of the second day, the entire first area is being exploited and turned into either 1. someone using it to get kills by sniping from under ground or 2. a giant underground battle, where floating bodies are shooting at each other from god-knows-where. the rest of the level is pretty decent as far as glitches and bugs, but ive seen a lot of problems with invisible objects (random mesh bits floating around?) where i will empty a clip into someone and it will do no damage, while they will turn around and 1-shot me.

and of course, all of the internet asshats are out in full force, already playing like douche bags. spawn killing, flanking solo for no reason other than to get kills (nowhere near an objective), noob tube spam, and all of that BS is already very prevalent. It takes the same number of bullets to kill someone no matter what weapon you use (sometimes it takes fewer with an assault rifle than it does with a sniper rifle, which is complete BS) and anyone using a long-distance scope has a giant "lens flare" that anyone in the direction they are pointing can see (so being a sniper is pretty useless, though i like the class because thats who got the m14 mod 0 in this BF game)

its not a "bad" game per-se, but if i wanted COD i would go play COD. i wanted more battlefield.

oh and guess what? the server browser is in your web browser, and it launches the game every time you join a server. boo.

of course, this is all IMO

It'll feel more like BF once we get maps (that we don't need PW's to) with vehicles.

i hope so. the camping and cheap-shotting is making it feel like COD and i am regretting all the hype. also, with how small and "campable" the map feels, it is very COD like.

You make some good points, and I concur on some of them. Although I wouldn't call the graphics cartoony. The gameplay issues will hopefully be fixed; I've already seen David Goldfarb acknowledge there is an issue with bullet damage.

Personally, I've found the sniper glare to be a bit OTT, as well as finding the revive timer for teammates to be somewhat short, and the revive icon is pretty useless in actually identifying downed, nearby teammates.

But this is all beta, so all we can do is hope it gets fixed, or QQ a lot when it is launched broken.

All I would say though, is it's the Rush game mode. Try and get onto a CB server and you will see that there is still very much a Battlefield game here. It is epic and huge, even if it has a slight BC2 aftertaste.

The only thing that needs fixing besides the obvious ( clipping through the ground etc.. ) they need to decrease the intensity of the weapon glimm and the flashlight, its too overwhelming.

The Caspian Border map is awesome and more representative of Battlefield. Operation Metro was an awful choice for the beta map.
