His logic is that he hates Origin, he hates EA, and he hates the way the FPS genre has impacted the industry lately. Therefore, he calls Battlefield generic. I've pointed out several times that it's clear he knows nothing about the game clearly but yet he wants to try and call it generic. I'm so furious right now, super raging, that this kid has the nerve to say I'm on a high horse and I need to get my head out of my ass even though I've proved him wrong on numerous different topics regarding BF as a whole.

For example: he says that having 64 players is stupid and unimportant because all it is is simply 32 more players throwing racial slurs and comments at each other. And that 32 players doesn't scale on 64 player maps, making it I guess stupid or something.
My red flag on him: The first argument is extremely poor and the 2nd argument is simply false. Battlefield scales the maps for you. 16, 32, and 64 players get different sized maps. Strike of Karkand has 3 variations of it for example. Completely clueless.
Kids like this just like to argue, bf3(and 2) is truly is unlike all the other popbox games kids these days are playing. You have tanks, planes, and helos, it really should not be lumped in with all the other FPS games on the market. You cannot win them all, and for some the war system in MW and COD has been dummed down so much that anyone can do it, bf has a bit of a learning curve involved, and the kid probably hates not being instanly king pin at a new game, so thus avoids the challenge presented by the battlefield series.

On a different note, has anyone seen this on Caspian? I get it occasionally then it goes away.

Dude, let it go
When he next says something, say "What ever" and just keep saying "What ever"
And don't get sucked back in to his silly argument! Just keep saying "what ever", and things like "I don't care"!
An give up on trying to make him see sense

I'm getting great fps on the new map

He said he hates the FPS genre for what it has "become" and rather play indie games because that's what a real serious PC gamer does. I mean, honestly what the hell! Indie games are a big part and all of the industry now but that doesn't mean that games like BF should be disregarded. It's a shame really. It really is, this is why games are simply rehashes of others before it.

Wow I have played tons on the PC and usually get worked!!

Just played a few rounds on the PS3 with my son and did so much better. Actually had positive kill/death, never on the PC. Guys are so oblivious on PS3 just run up beside them and knife them.

Well he is a "kid" and sounds like he loves to make a argument about nothing really. I would agree with the above poster and ignore whatever the kid spews out of his incoherent mouth. Nothing makes those kind of people more mad than just straight up ignoring their bull****.

I'm trying to join one, and it's been about five minutes???
It just says "Joining Server"
Sometimes I get this. Log completely out of Origin and relaunch the game. Thats what I do and it works.

I stopped using the mouse and use W,A,S,D and up,down,left,right arrow keys. I do much better that way. Not as good as with the joystick but at least I can take off without crashing into a fiery death

You just got to master the G force that's all. The physical weight and etc.
