post #33941 of 52874
I just got back in to PC gaming to play BF3 with some of my co-workers. I am experiencing VERY long load times when I first pick a server (5 minutes+). When the server changes maps, it doesnt take very long, just the initial server join.

My system is two Harpertown quad core Xeons, 8gb ram in quad channel, two 7200.12 160's in Raid O, and a Radeon 4870x2, WIndows 7 Ultimate 64.

Any advice?

Update to the latest catalyst drivers if you haven't done already? Long load times were related to driver problems in the past with AMD cards. I've experienced that myself but new catalyst drivers fixed it.

I have the latest driver that is on the AMD website, 12.1 I think.

Watch the far wall opposite the ocean. You can run up and down snaking between the shipping containers and mow people down. Then when it gets broken they will spawn either the ocean or the corner of the ocean on the wall. Run over there, take that then they'll spawn back at the wall and rinse/repeat.

what i meant by there are maps that sucks is that some maps werent well designed ... kharg isnt bad for tdm noshar canal isnt bad neither .. but metro in the park part?


come on ... teheran highway :S not the best map neither .. they could have made it to have the section next to gas station flag with the structures .. is it construction yard flag ..


anyway some maps are totally bad for one mode and acceptable for another mode

Metro is so boring it is the same thing every game everyone just spams usas, nades, rpg, m320. I don;t know why someone would buy a battlefield game to play a map without vehicles and just spam a corridor

Better get used to it unless you play with people you know it is rare to find competent teamates

We've been on the OCN mumble server lately.
You can find us in there and play.
Don't be shy, and you wont have to lone wolf all the time.

Actually even if you are good enough, the G18 will still kill them in about the same amount of time, and then if there's another person you can shoot them more easily because the recoil on the 44 and Rex is huge.
The 44 and Rex both take 1 headshot or 2 body shots to kill, the G18 takes 3 headshots or 5 body shots and it's fully automatic so you'll get those shots faster. And it's suppressed so you don't show up on their radar.
Obviously it all depends on personal preference, but the stats say it's better imo.

.44/REX also doesn't need to be iron sighted for near perfect accuracy. G18's accuracy and damage goes down the drain at range when you need it.

Almost sounds like you think great players don't reside outside of tournaments, or the circle of people you play with.

Not a whole lot of good players don't play in tournaments. Especially when money is being dealt with, if you're good why not play in a tournament for more competition, and with players who know what they're doing? Throw in the fact that there's money involved, I wouldn't see why not. Definitely not saying there aren't, but the population that's good at a game and only plays in public server is a definite minority. Also, being good in public servers does not mean you're good at matches. There's a huge difference.

It's no different than say CS 1.6 which I normally play. Good players don't sit in public servers all day to destroy, its a waste of time when they could be practicing with a team to get better during leagues and tournaments.

M320 AND USAS? C'mon man.

lol, I have to laugh at the USAS frag users, it's just funny to me they shoot at walls and just in the general direction of someone and still get the kills.

Strange. I don't play metro because I don't consider it fun.
Every time I've played metro, came away disappointed.
Please explain to me how I can have some fun on metro, then maybe I'll play it more.

When I play the only ways to get kills, is to resort to cheap tactics that everyone else is using.
No thanks, not even sure if you could convince me it's somehow fun.
I stopped forking out cash for COD titles to avoid small confined spam sessions.

If I am in a server, and it is in the rotation.
Sometimes I end up having to play it, and I try to have some fun.
But personally, it's my least favorite map if I'm honest.

But that's where Metro 64p CQ becomes fun, when you outsmart the people using those cheap tactics. You already know they will be rpg/nade/m320 spamming in certain areas, so why don't you smoke back escalators and clear from behind or even run to C/A? Occasionally if you get a good squad you can actually push through the explosionfest while clearing out loads of people and turn the tide. That's when it becomes fun. Those servers tend to be filled with a lot of explosion spammers, which may not be to good at much else... so if you can surprise them, then that becomes fun.

If you resort to the cheap tactics, then ya that is pretty boring.

I always loved coming from the bottom stairs with the 870 or pkp and just clearing that top right out, toss a grenade to the C flag to scatter or kill those guys and then, if lucky and still alive clear lockers also. Those are great moments, though rare, makes it awesome though. That's why I laugh at those USAS users, they spam 7+ shells at me to kill me, just takes the 1 870 shot to shut anyone down.
