Any more points that I missed on the whole MW3 vs. BF3 issue?
Only point I'm missing from this is how these two games are being compared in the first place. One is run and gun deathmatch and the other is conquest and mission based gameplay.

It's like comparing Unreal Tournament and Team Fortress. No seriously~ it's exactly the same. You have a run and gun death match shooter, and then you have a team based, class based shooter. Both games can have similar modes, capture the flag~ what have you... but they're completely different kinds of shooters.

Nobody compared Battlefield or MW to games like Rainbow Six or Team Fortress or Counterstrike. Why? Because while all are FPS's~ they're not the same kind of game at all.

So why in heaven's name~ why, are these two games being compared AT ALL?

Ask the little kids that argue about BF3 vs. MW3. All I'm doing is bringing my side of the argument into light via video commentary. Yes I didn't bring up every point I wanted to; but I feel I got the message across that BF3 is already looking up to be the next big FPS game on the market. While in my eyes MW3 is a skeptical purchase at this stage.

I'm sorry if my content has offended you but I'm sick of hearing "MW3 will be better because its CALL OF DUTY!!!".
All I was trying to do was explain how BF3 is shaping up as apposed to MW3, and why MW3 is still an iffy decision for a purchase unlike BF3.

Once again, sorry if you didn't like my content.

Battlefield 3 will feature 4 man squads like in Bad Company 2, however, according to DICE’s Alan Kertz, who once again confirmed some new info via Twitter, squad spawning has changed compared to Bad Company 2.

In Battlefield 3, the squad members can only spawn on the squad leader, while the squad leader can spawn on any squad member. This seems to be the right way to do it, as Kertz points out: “it keeps pace up without tons of spawns”. One of the (minor) problems in Bad Company 2 was that any squad member could spawn on any squad member, meaning, for instance, one player camping behind enemy lines could spawn 3 additional squad mates.

The new system resembles a lot like Battlefield 2, where squad mates could only spawn on the squad leader, while the squad leader had to spawn at the spawn point. on the flip side, this led to a lot of “squad hopping”, whereby a player who died would hop to a squad with a leader closest to the action, and spawn on him. Squad hopping was later fixed in a patch.

Would have seriously liked 6 man squads instead.

I don't get it either. It's one of the best ways to defeat spawn raping is to get a guy out and have a squad spawn on him.

Now we're just suppose to rely on some random guy to hopefully help his squad out? HA!

Makes you function like a squad instead of a bunch of people running left and right spawning where it pleases them and preventing everyone spawning on that dude who managed to slip behind enemy lines.

It's also the best way to simplify spawn raping by having one guy slip in your base and having everyone spawn on him.

And yes, it's called teamwork, something you find in BF games.
