    I'd hardly call it the decline of gamers.
    Personally, i don't keep anything that's personal on my PC, or nothing that i'm concerned about being found anyway. Yep, i use my PC almost purely for entertainment purposes. Yeah, ok, lie, i got my CV on here too. That doesn't mean a thing, since that simply means that if they are reading it, i've more chance of getting a job i might enjoy.

    Anything that i have that i might want to protect would be encrypted. Not using any random public application, but using something i'd develop myself. They can go through anything they want on me, because frankly, my personal security lies locked away in something they can't access; my mind. Until Origin can read my thoughts, memories, and methods, then it's not gonna get anything on me that i wouldn't want to be known already.

    There is also a difference between scanning and transmitting or transferring. We all know that hackers adapt to new methods all the time. For example, i could write an application that waits for BF3 to start, and then performing all manner of actions. Scanning everything, while a VERY crude method, serves the purpose it's meant to. It's doesn't mean i approve of it though.

    The idea is you have to work as a team, you have to rely on the engineers, like they have to rely on you :P

    Got this on the day before release, played it for like 2 hours max on MP, cant get into it all. Just seems like a camping game where its all about who camps the most apposed to actually having to aim well, as well as dying from nowhere everytime, whereas im used to playing counter strike and dominating because of a good aim, disappointed with this game as a whole but i guess im a minority.

    You're a twitch gamer :P

    This game requires twitch, and tactics, most importantly though, patience.

    I would probably say you died more often than not to not knowing maps more than anything.

    Yes I understand that and possibly as the game has some more time to be played by more people it will be the case. At the moment, especially on the bigger maps when I'm not playing with other friends that reliability is hard to find and it's much easier for me to trust myself to do it.

    Either change all the tactical lights to this or change none IMO. Either way, the tactical light needs a nerf

    Agreed, this Is a bad tactic overall. I mean, when the hell does a Marine use a flashlight to blind his enemies?

  14. #2654
    I think someone need to get their source right, on bfblog it says nothin about only friends. Its overall less blindin!!

    Too the game, well i experienced the same like in wow... Some people u can expect things from like ammo and rezz in the right situation, rep in tank, shoot othertanks or kill their engee, but other just walk through the game with closed eyes!! Like i get shoot in my back while seein some teamate campin the way behind me, or do the things said above.
    Why get urself spawncamped when u can easily in 1-2 lifes get out there and cap some points or kill them from behind.
    Why try to hide from a tank with thermal? Run bitch!

    I literally carried someone in my tank last nite on conquest, he as gunner had 2 kills in 15 min and was 2nd place just by my assists and captures... Well without ppl like that that game wouldnt be so much fun (me killin em wiese :P)

    No you cant. Engineer can handle tanks, but helps little under heavy firefight (RPG s nerfed, even though still powerful they inst anywhere as OP as in BFBC2, and this game has almost no noobtube thank to insanely huge map). I prefer engineer class simply because I tend to wander away from my squad and gotta rely on my own when encounter enemies.

    If you cant take down a tank yourself, call for reinforcement. If no one comes, simply steer away from it. You cant do anything to long-range snipers, fast flyers and attack helicopters, mortal spammers, hell even a support gunner firing suppressing fire towards you. Why bother frustrating over a tank, LoL.

    Those are the biggest issues to newcomers from CS and CoD. They cant stand the idea of being raped by a well played driver/pilot, or got killed by a bullet from nowhere, then complaining the game is full of campers and overpowered vehicles. I can assure you its not the case. People might run from cover to cover, hiding from your view since you aint familiar to big maps, but matchs cant progress if everyone just sits at their place peeking through zooming scope, no flag is gonna captured, and rush matchs are nonexistent at all.

    Hell, I run on my foot in 64p conquest maps all the time with a rifle on a hand and RPG launcher on another, with ~1.3 KDR. Many people do the same.

    Did not play BC2 so dunno if this is new, but the whole vehicle actually dies at 50% shit is stupid, they need to change to, i understand if at 10-20% maby the health drops on its own but iv been at 60% and gone red and had to bail.

  17. #2657
    I dunno, got some instances when my tank's health was drained pretty quickly from 100% to 0 in seconds and had to bail without ever knowing what the hell happened, but you are expected to ride with an engineer or equipped self-repair/explosive armor beforehand. It slowed down considerably at sub-50% HP, but still operational, you can score kills as long as you got balls.

    Actually, the game rewards overly aggressive play in PUB games.

    The campers get kills, and low deaths, but they don't get as many kills as a player who aggressively pushes past the lines. The best way to get a good K : D along with a high score is to push up on the very far flanks of the respective map. So if you are on Firestorm (Rush) push up (very) far right or (very) far left when assaulting. Then come from within the opposite direction they expect you.

    Anyone else playing in the TWL league? We won our first match today, after they delayed for a week, in a rather dominating fashion if I might add. The ticket count was 328 to their 0 on Metro when we assaulted, and 272 to their 0 when we defended.

  19. #2659
    This game isn't about kill/death ratio, keep that in mind. Had a game as Assault when I died like 20 times and only killed 6 or 7, BUT I ended up with lots of points thanks to ressing and healing people, and that is what teamwork is all about.

  20. #2660
    KDR is still important, especially in Conquest, every death means a ticket loss but yeah. KDR isn't as important, you can rack up awesome points from repairing vehicles, reiving people, healing people, spotting stuff and giving ammo to people
