Maybe the n00bs at EA gave out a bugged dl the first time, I dont know.

maps are fairly large in size ~800mb each. Also DICE have never been good at making small patches.

So the "update" added a bunch of new maps? I didn't see that in the update list.

The new patch has made some changes to existing maps.

Canals for example, facing the train depot on the right corner, running up those stairs is no longer out of bounds. They pushed the barriers back a bit allowing us to take advantage of that little area that people love camping at.

Except the rush modes are designed to give the defenders a serious advantage, so it really wouldn't work out that well. I just wish they would bring back CTF.

Defenders have the advantage in pretty much all S&D type game modes in every game, plus each team gets to defend. Could do with some tweaking, like only 1 of the 2 targets needs to be destroyed for the next section to open. Thats how S&D format seems to work in every game anyway, only 1 of the 2 targets needs to be destroyed.

As for CTF, sure its ok if you want TDM with an objective, but it will never be good for competition.

Every mode is TDM with an objective. S&D is TDM with an objective.

CTF is round based...
CTF is tdm with objectives, s&d is tdm with no respawns and objectives etc.. Single player rpg's are just like TDM with no teams and wizards and potions, board games are TDM with boardwalk and park place... whatever dude, I was just saying I like ctf, BF1942 had it and I wish they would add the mode back in. The crazy ass runs with the flags were great, something you don't see in rush or CS type games..



All that aside, the point I was making was: rush maps and the mode itself are too defensively biased as is, sure you can tweak them to be counterstrike, but then why not just play CS?

LOL well looks like DICE has ****ed this game royaly now in the campaign. When you reach A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE and you need to take out the jet with Stinger, the Stinger magically does not appear, its all over the EA forums. Does not effect the PC only, seems it effects PS3/XBOX360 aswell lol. Problem has existed for 4 days now lol and both EA/DICE are stumped as to what is causing the problem.

While I disagree with everything you said about round based gameplay and TDM, I think adding more game modes like CTF would be great, the more the merrier.

Why not just play CS? because I'd rather play BF3.

I never play the campaigns for these games, but that is inexcusable. Some people buy these types of games for the campaign only.

I buy Call of Duty games for the campaign only. Only when the price drops to $15 or blow though. I hate COD multiplayer.

BF3 is the only MP I actually like

The cannons on the rush jets are insane overpowered. Almost no challenge whatsoever against tanks. wish they would have kept the same damage from the conquest jets.

Also shot down sturdywings (famous pilot/youtuber) couple times today 1v1 he raped me but me and a friend double teamed him multiple times.

Trying to get a bit better performance with the least drop in IQ on my rig. Usually sitting around 35fps. I've looked through a few online guides that were no help. I've also tried changing several settings that normally have a large impact on performance. They had no apparent effect.

Any suggestions?

Heh, well not much you can do except get a faster CPU. Changing graphics settings wont do a whole lot past a certain point.

Show me some benchmarks that will prove that changing my CPU would be more beneficial than getting a 2nd GTX580 or GTX680 and I might give it more than a brief thought. I haven't seen anything too convincing yet.

If you say changing obvious graphics settings is having no apparent effect on increasing performance, its seems to me you are on the CPU limited side of things.. which would make sense given the CPU. A single 580 isnt exactly going to power through BF3 either.

1155 chip and another 580 will run it like a champ.

How does one view another dudes PC specs? I can't find the option in their avatar.

Anyways, bf3 is cpu demanding. First thing that would require love.
