    i agree with the guy in the video. but he was basically saying that people that just want to run around and not bother with objectives, those are the people that typically would enjoy CoD more, as that is basically what the purpose of that game is.

    but with that said, if Dice did add that CoD style gameplay type then it probably would make BF more appealing to more players.

    There are 45 ranks, the rest are "prestige" ranks like in COD (except you get to keep your weapons).

    Most of the leveling in this game is done through classes and weapons, not rank. It takes a very long time to max out every class, vehicle, and weapon.

    Eh what? Loads of weapons have tactical flashlights, not just pistols. They needs to be affected by the amount of ambient light and distance from target: Dark tunnel with no lights and the enemy is right in front of you, blinding. Bright summer day and the enemy is 50m away, no effect whatsoever.

    God the Javelin Is useless. Not enough dmg, only 4 rounds with explosives perk(waste of perk), and It only shoots up into the air If its laser designated.
    The RPG, SMAW get 10 rounds with the explosives perk, and only slight slight less dmg than the Javelin.
    I don't count on recon to actually aid me In killing air targets with the Javelin with their laser designator because they never do shit to contribute to the team.

    Yeah there is 145 ranks, once you hit 45, after that you get a service star up to 100 times, thus 145 ranks.

    Not that it matters all that much, but all of the NCO ranks are real marine corps NCO ranks. None of them are "made up". Unless you are counting the extra star ranks.

    Loving the game so far, as it should be pretty easy to tell from my signature.

    What they need is a two person plane where the main guy flys the plane and the other can bomb targets. This would make air superiority matter. Can't count the times I see only my teams planes in the air doing circles while waiting.

    The one thing that really bothers me is people always whining about some absolute balance. Let's face it guys, some good defensive positions can be pretty unfair to attackers (no shit sherlock). It's not supposed to be "balanced". Most likely the reason the fortress was made there was not to make it easy to attack.

    That said, in most maps that are "unbalanced" there are vehicles that can overcome the unbalanced positions with skill. Also in rush maps there are spots that favour the attacker and spots that favour the defender. Sure, it suck to be stuck in a bottleneck, but you are just as many times on the better side of that bottleneck as you are on the losing side.

    Also, any of you people whining about operation metro ever bother to rush the stairs as a team or are you all just camping downstairs hopint to catch a glimpse of someone's feet / trying to get as many frags as possible with explosives instead of actually capturing the point ahead? And how many of you actually bothered to use smoke grenades that actually can turn very unfavourable spots to perfectly balanced. But no, most of you never take smoke grenades because it doesn't make you look good. So hard to take one for the team, eh?

    I love the game there are some flaws, but none so big they would overshadow my enjoyment.

    the only 'legit' gripe, I have, and im shocked ive not seen it more. is Metro on conquest... one team always gets the shitty end. and essentially.. 'loses the game' (its the same as the 3rd set of rush points basically. by the escalators into the ticket booths... so you end up fighting an uphill battle.. to try and GET to the mid point. very easy for good defenders to pin you in. other then that! cant think of much really :P

    Oh really? my mistake i guess its only Recon then that only get it on pistols. Completely agree with you by the way.

    You can unlock the flashlight and red LAZERS! pistols for any class, and for almost any pistol. You can also unlock the flashlight and red laser for almost all weapons... I have yet to encounter a main weapon you couldn't unlock them for, including sniper rifles.

    What's with ranking up, 44 to 45 requires 80k points, 45 to 46 is 230k.
    It doesn't even give any reward, and I saw many ppl over 50, I'm starting to think the cheaters percentage is pretty high :|

And no it's not the most broken or imbalanced thing in the game, but something that makes me physically hurt with no acceptable correlation to my surroundings is weighed above the IRNV scope, the mortars, and assault weapon snipers rifles.

    And before you label me a hater, I do love this game. I love it a lot. Right now I have 87 hours logged in the game. I'll stomach the weapon imbalance but brightness of flashlights really bug the shit out of me.
    Flashbang would be the same though, thats what its replacing. Don't think of it as a flashlight, that's not its purpose lol. When do you need a flashlight in this game? (especially when theres IRNV). A flash in your face would most likely, flash the whole screen that bright white colour, then upon that fading slightly everything would be dizzying - with multiple objects multiplying and dancing and things waving about because the sound almost knocks you out, then your ears will be ringing constantly and you have the fun sensation like a rocket taking off as the sound comes back to you.

    That would undoubtedly annoy people more. Undoubtedly. But thats the idea, it's a weapon, like all the others, that you must combat.

    Why do you lie to yourself like this?
    You can take out mortars, it's called your teams support class. All they have to do is just once, use up 30 seconds, deploy, shoot, and before the shell even hits the enemy mortar they can be up and in the fight again. ANd whenever mortar fire is heard again they look for where they are, deploy, shoot, and carry on.

    It's not a problem, hell its a free kill.

    2- Metro operation ,,what DICE were thinking when they added this map? it's completely unbalanced in rush or conquest mode.
    3- Repair tool need to be nerfed actually, 1-2 eningeers repairing a tank while it's nuking everyone in tactical position can't be dealt with.
    4- spawn loactions need to be fixed, getting killed 4-5 times in row even if you just spwaned in your base isn't fun play.
    I don't think metro is that imbalanced. People keep saying x gets to shoot down the escalators. But the other team actually get to the B at the same time.

    I play on both sides all the time and you can always get through, hell I have solo'd my way through with the PKP before lol, squad spawn on me in the buildings near A and suddenly we have all objectives.

    Im lucky enough to play with a couple of my friends (talking over TS), and i must say that the Metro HC Rush is hard for the attacker, but not impossible...
    We group up and rush together upstairs, and all you find is people reloading their RPGs or lying on the floor sniping the wrong direction.

    The problem is people just camp downstairs hoping someone else will do the hard part for them.
