The pace of BF games is a bit slower. Gotta work as a team if you can. One person plant while the others cover, then nade spam the mcom. Rockets too. The explosions make it harder to navigate through there and people are easier to pick off. Dunno why I'm giving advice, I'm no good either...

Run and shoot is certainly not the best strategy when you have enemies in the field of view. Moving from cover to cover is key. I've also found there to be a heavy misuse of the suppression feature, very rarely do I see team mates providing each other suppressing fire to move to more advantageous positions.

Already during this beta I've had one of my most memorable FPS moments thanks to the suppression feature. It was in the hallway near Point B on the 3rd set of M-Coms. I had a squad which actually tried to function(though no voice communication). As we moved up the hallway one person would continually spray and we slowly inched up the hallway from cover to cover. Eventually we reached a point where we controlled the hallway.

Moral of the story is to play with team work in the back of your mind always. This is not a game where a one man army is possible. Being careful, and using cover frequently to draw enemies into less favorable positions are the most important tactics you can use. Honestly aim is almost secondary to teamwork in this game.

Also don't forget to SPOT! It's so easy to hit Q but I swear there's been few games where I actually get team mates that will do it. I try to pop up as many red triangles over the enemy as possible but rarely see any over the enemies that I don't spot myself. It is a GREAT benefit to your team. Even if you're not doing great/getting killed a lot, giving your team useful information on enemies' positions is a huge help.

That doesn't really make sense to me but whatever. Why wouldn't they just simply use the latest build of the game for the beta? They complain about us complaining, when they have the easiest fix: roll out the latest build as a beta update. They're only shooting themselves in the foot. It wouldn't surprise me if many people have already canceled their pre-orders.
Well i hope that the beta performs better. My only concern is, i've compared fps with others on the same GPU's, settings, location and they have been about 20fps higher. My PC is fully tested and working with fresh format and latest drivers. Makes no sence. Yet i can max out metro 2033 solid 60 and others can't. What is going on? I hope the Bf3 release works perfectly fine for crossfire.

Is your OC stable? And what resolution were they at compared to yours?

Performance varies. It's an abstract concept, but even with practically identical hardware, performance varies. Mods on cars work the same way, with an intake giving as little as 2hp to one car while giving 10hp to another identical car. I definitely wouldn't worry about BF3 performing well on your rig.

I don't think anyone would worry if Bf3 performed well on their rig. I just don't see how i can be 20fps slower on average with mega issues yet i've tested all my hardware and everything is fine. 2-3fps then fine i understand, but 20+?

I dropped down to 4.5Ghz and stock ram speeds. No difference.
Running stock GPU's.
Res compared to my res was 1080p vs 1080p.
