Maybe I should put a tutorial for how to get out of the menu bug lool (Youtube probably already has one come to think of it...)

I stated there was a workaround for it in my post

There isn't much m320 at all. There's no stupid choke points on metro so there's no where to just sit and spam them, you have to actually aim at people, which is a lot easier with a gun.

I used to play COD and I never once saw an enemy spawn and very rarely saw team mates spawn. It seemed clear that they had programmed a rule preventing a player from spawning within another players FOV...simple and logical. CODMW...1 used a fully dynamic spawn system, so you could spawn anywhere on a map, unlike BF3's fixed/limited spawn locations which is at the heart of the problem. Its simply an inferior and antiquated system that negatively impacts gameplay. It was isolated to TMD but it now effects CQ as you have to random spawn if you don't have a squad mate to spawn on.
Don't get me wrong, imo BF3>COD...the spawn system just sucks.
TDM maps were made for 32 people, CQ maps for 16 (imo you need at LEAST 24 people for a good game, I usually play 32), if you play with more people than can fit on a map you're just asking for spawn system problems.

THOSE are the main people buying premium. i'll also bet the majority of those are kids spending mommy's money (dad's money) on premium and then calling the premium haters whiners.
anyone that actually likes playing fps games, played previous bf games, and uses their own money, are *****ing on the battlefield forums about pushing premium and NOT giving a damned about the core game or the original fan base. they arent going to fix it until people stop giving ea money and demand they fix the game and give us what we were promised and paid for.
/endrant

I played Codename Eagle, then BF1942 and all the PC BF games after it without fail, with BF3 being my absolute favourite (favourite FPS of all time as well). I was disappointed when Premium was announced with the £39.99 price tag but then I realised that BF3 was indeed my favourite FPS of all time, that I'll want all the DLC anyway and that buying it separately would cost more and delay my experience of it unnecessarily. At that point, in went my PayPal details and Premium was mine - and with my own money as well (I'm 25)! smile.gif

Whilst I agree fixing bugs should always be a priority over more milking, all we can do is hope DICE prioritise the bug fixing a bit. I do admit that besides the "revive to menu" bug, I see no other bugs in BF3 (that bother me at all or that I notice, at least). Just remember that Premium is just a bundle package for the DLC and the DLC, like in the old days we called "expansions", are nothing new to the series as something we pay for extra beyond the original game (e.g. BF2 had Special Forces as well as the two smaller expansions, none free).

Just thought I'd interject by saying that Premium members are not only 13 year old CoD kids who never saw a BF game before BF3 and who got mummy and daddy to pay for Premium.

I hate the old, it's a kid, he doesn't pay for his stuff. I work my ass off for my gear, Mommy and Daddy just make me save a third of anything I earn, treat me like an employee if I work for them and see any and all receipts of all online orders I make.


Is there a way to go back to the old knife? I liked it better.

Nice job.

You ain't kidding. It's pretty good. Not the best but, I'm using a crap Microsoft mouse since my RAT 3 died. Only thing is you have to be dead on that first shot or an AEK/F2000 will rip you a new one.

Russian copy, might be the problem? You might have to get on the chat support, or even google it "russian bf3 doesn't launch", dunno :/

Edit: Try enabling cloud storage for the game, In Origin.

Chat support. Or have them call you back.

If you already tried a repair install, those are your best options.

Out of the 3 times I've had support call me back, I got absolutely excellent service 2 times--once the lady sounded as if she was just tired of life all together...biggrin.gif

Worth a shot. Good luck, bro.

So how is BF3 close quarters. Is it worth paying for. I only want close quarters. Please be honest and fare.

If you like close quarters infantry gameplay, yes, it is very fun. If you're a vehicle whore or you just play conquest air maps 24/7, then no, you probably wont like it.
