I can't knock the reality servers way of playing either sounds like a good time.

Hardcore can have just if not more action and "chaos" as soft-core. It depends on how you play. It is up to you to sit back and camp or get out there and decimate. I only play hard-core and I don't have almost 700 SPM by hiding behind stuff all game. If you are skilled and you go out there and tear some stuff up hard-core is awesome. I call soft-core "noob-core" because it is more noob friendly. You have a better chance of doing better as a lower skilled player on regular versus hard-core.

I guess I just don't get why people would play the easy mode version of the game when the more realistic hard-core version is out there. I wouldn't even be playing this game if there wasn't a "hard-core" mode which IMO should be the only mode. Just some personal perspective from someone who has played competitive FPS for a long time.

Well, I guess he could do that, but the problem is the people who follow his banlist(click followers). They will automatically add the ban to their servers as well, just because the person used a disallowed weapon in Killzone's Metro server. It's supposed to be just for cheaters...

Check out this funny site called Cheat-o-meter: http://cheatometer.hedix.de/index.php
Some of my stats are red. What a joke. Basically, anyone who's not a noob is a hacker...

Because it's a game. We play games to have fun. Our opinion of fun is obviously different than yours.

Competitive FPS yet you're playing Hardcore? Makes no sense as the whole competitive scene has never actually played hardcore in any game. CEVO, ESEA, ESL, or even CAL which is long dead. Let's not even use TWL as that league has never even been taking seriously.

Is MLG playing on "softcore" mode or something? I can't believe so called "professionals" would stand for 3D spotting wallhax. Then again, they're usually console player matches anyways, so that would be no surprise. Could you imagine CSS with a big orange dot above people's heads? lachen.gif

Taking a break from BF3 after hearing forums got hacked. A little nervous to see our account information and keys stolen or worst. Best wait it out til they sort things out and keep it on the secured line.

Yes i am paranoid and sick of these guys ruining the BF3 community. I totally understand that using Origin and a browser is a horrible way to go but come on. The more you hack the more the reason SOPA will come back. We can't have that.

MLG is played on regular mode, as well as the Alienware tournament. MLG is also console, which I thought we were not talking about as their competitive rules are normally different.

Players show up on the mini-map on the CSS when spotted.

Heh, consoles. And they call themselves "professionals"... Hardcore is closer to how BF2 was. You can still spot people on the mini-map. The biggest issues to me are the giant orange dot wallhax and vehicles/people regenerating health... Especially an air vehicle...

So, I rented a BF3 server (in London) for a month, just to see how it works out biggrin.gif Currently configured it just for B2K mixed Rush & Conquest (linky) Its a shame DICE don't let you start without 4 players, I could've had some heli and jet training .. frown.gif

You should be able to start with 2 players now.
