hey have any of u had trouble logging into Origin? The BF3 server site says "update in progress", but why is Origin not working? i can't even run it, and i have other games on it besides BF3.

I like to booby trap flags with C4. Just plant 3 packs in different areas around the flag. Go off to capture the next flag. As soon as you see the flag start to be neutralized on the mini map, blow the C4. It's gotten me a few kills and saved a flag or two.

ROFL so many faggots play this game. Was on a server that they refused to balance the teams, we were getting killed and my team maters were USELESS. I complained about their shittiness and my squad kicked me. So I basically ended up raping the opposing team and becoming first overall by far in the game despite that we lost. Chirped my team the entire time for how terribad they were. They were pretty irate as I was raking up the kills. Eventually got to switch to the stacked team because I had enough of it. Admin then boots me LOL

No matter where you go, there are going to be retards that dont know how to play very well. What I tend to do is just play with people I know. If no one on my team knows what to do I just go rogue.. I may not win but I am going to get hell of a lot of kills.

Just played this game again last night after not touching it for about a month. For whatever reason it's A LOT of fun again.

Think I'll be playing again shortly...

at least this **** works for you guys.

nothing saves. campaign, settings, co-op, keybinds, kits.... nothing.

run as administrator, doesnt matter, doesn't care. doesnt read the settings in the folder, doesnt save to them, doesnt do ****, just launches with default settings, every single time.

Something must be screwy somewhere. Last time the game wouldn't save settings for me, it was that open beta.

Find another server. For whatever, we'll bounce around to 4 or 5 servers some nights. Until we find a good server.

140hrs for me, could only manage 90hrs in BC2 before I stopped. Hard to say this will get me as many hours as bf2 and most certainly not as many as 2142 (300+) but I'd say it's been great value for me.

Also chubz, I thought you liked the B2K maps?

I think BC2 made me feel more like part of a team than BF3 ever did. It seems like it became all about stats and KDR whoring and showing off on Battlelog. That's all some folks did was compare penis sizes on Battlelog and belittle others who posted on the forums by pointing out their poor stats and claiming they had no business discussing the game, period. And I won't lie, even I became that type of person more than once. It was more the type of environment Battlelog created than the type of person I am. When profiles are just a click away for every single person who posts and you're forced to stick with one soldier the entire time, stats become the name of the game. As a result of the hostile environment created by Battlelog which denied you any ounce of privacy as a player, Battlefield 3 lost something that the previous games had (or perhaps gained something they didn't). When someone blasted my ass in Battlefield 1942 or Vietnam, I didn't check their "profiles" after each round to compare stats. And when I posted on forums about my experiences and took part in debates, I didn't inspect the profiles of those I disagreed with to see if they played as well as I did or spent most of their time on foot or in vehicles -- and they didn't check mine, either, because we simply couldn't. And in my opinion, that was the way Battlefield should always have been.

Now don't get me wrong, Bad Company 2 and the titles that preceded it had their fair share of idiots who cared only about their own personal gains, but I felt like that was ramped up tenfold in Battlefield 3 to the point of stats being the focus of the game. I'll never forget the time on Tehran Highway when we were on the American team and a Recon-only player hopped inside our one and only tank, kept it up high on the hill where we spawned, and did nothing the entire round but shell the opposing team below. He wanted to kill, but have no chance of being killed so that his stats wouldn't be negatively affected. I know this not because of assumptions made about that one round -- everyone dicks around every once in a while -- but because I checked out his profile and my fears were confirmed. The mentality of most of Battlefield 3's players seemed to revolve around phrases like "I must have more kills than deaths!" and "I must unlock this item by playing for me and only me!" On the subject of unlocks, did those completely goof up the air combat for newcomers or what? You basically have to fly and get slaughtered a million times with helicopters and jets before you unlock worthy weaponry and stand a chance -- hence the reason I rarely flew after the beta when I realized just how suicidal it was. Can't it just be simple like it once was? No unlocks, no bullshit. Just helicopters and jets with effective arsenals for each and every player, regardless of his "level" or "unlocks."

And there's simply no excuse for having a UI that made even Bad Company 2's seem perfect in comparison, a commo-rose that to this day is there only for the sake of being there, a horrible mini-map that when enlarged helps none at all, and zero squad coordination with strangers thanks to lack of in-game VoIP. After such a long run of being thrown on terrible teams that I felt I had no connection with thanks to crippled communications and filled to the brim with individuals with no sense of strategy or teamwork, I guess I just got so sick of the game I haven't had a desire to play the Hell out of it ever since. I feel that with Battlefield's continuous direction towards persistent stats, profiles that can't be recreated or even erased, simple interfaces with fewer options than ever before, and even unlocks for weapons and vehicles, it's become a three-headed monster that I no longer recognize as the old "friend" I once spent so much time with. Battlefield has become Statsfield; and unless DICE gets their act together, it's just another franchise that is more or less dead to me now.

Also chubz, I thought you liked the B2K maps?
~750 hours in BC2 for me, ~45 for BF3 so far..
