Why would they move away from that control mechanism?
Yep, incredibly precise controls, BC2 definitely didn't have it although it is much better than BF3 in its current state(basically it's been noobified). I loved it in BF2 because to be good you had to be, well, good. This is the same for BC2 as well to an extent, I'm probably at my prime with my gunner right now, only AA and VADS can take us down(although we know where they all are now and are pretty quick at shooting back), or a lucky shot from a tank but that is really rare now. I just hope they make them handle more like in BF2, they were so hard to fly well, but when done well they were unstoppable

At this stage, I wonder if we won't need to see mods to get the aircraft to handle the same way as they did in BF2. I'm pretty sure DICE want to keep it simple for newbs, which removes the 'awesome in the right hands' and makes them 'average and accessible'. Pity, because when there was a pilot absolutely pwning you in BF2, you'd know they had skill with a chopper. I never once felt dominated by the helis in BC2.

Anytime I tried to fly in BF2, with KBM, my PC would end up complaining because I would be holding down about 10 keys at once, trying not to crash into the ground. Or buildings. Or other helicopters.

I would love the opportunity to try and take you down with a SAM

I'm an infantry type of guy. So I should dig Op Metro, right? Nope.

That article is dead right. CB offered the proper BF experience. You like jets? Fill your boots. Like tanks? Go for it. Want to yomp across the map on foot with your squad and cap a point? Work away. There was something for every type of BF player and more than just 'kill as many enemy players as possible'. Something that Operation Metro just doesn't offer. And that is why I have no doubts about my preorder. Creeping through the long grass as an enemy tank drove right past me, it felt like a BF2 moment.

At this point, I just want the damn game to come out.
couldn't have said it better

Does any one know if BF-3 will have bot mode. Like all the other Battlefield games have had!
Or is it going the same as BC2, with just the story mode for single player??

LOL OMG that snake neck thing has happened to me and I was cracking up so hard over Mumble. The guys couldn't see why I was laughing so much because it wasn't happening on their screen.

A little disappointed in the lack of bullet drop at long distances. I had to completely relearn how to play because of that. It seems that a straight shot is the best bet. Was getting owned for days because I was instinctively adjusting for distance.

Any word on bullet drop? I know we brought it up days ago, but the topic fizzled.

I hope they don't do that, they are there for the skilled, not everybody... that was one thing I didn't like about BC2. The gap between average pilots and good pilots shrunk majorly in it, kinda annoyed me... and you'd never get me with a SAM lol, breaking the lock is so easy, I don't exactly fly high

This took some getting used to for me as well.

I kinda like it better this way though. Keep in mind the maps in BF3 will be much larger which would make sniping a pain with bullet drop similar to BC2.

It looks as if the bullet mechanics for snipers are the same as in BF2. I don't remember BF2 having much bullet drop.

sorry ide have to disagree with that bit bf2 any noob with a stick could fly good.

EDIT: thats just the way i seen it , i was rarely in a plane or chopper in bf2 cause im more of a ground infantry person but i could easily jump in said machines and rape the whole map with minimal skill or practise .

You mean like openly giving away 20% and 25% coupons, Mass Effect 2, Dead Space 2 and/or Medal of Honor for pre-ordering?

Add to that, Origin support actually does something. Trying to contact and deal with Steam support is like banging your head against a door to get it to open. Of course I like Steam but Origin really isn't that bad. If I got the same exact price and extras on Steam as I did with Origin, I probably would order on Steam, but that won't happen.
