don't get me wrong, i've declined buying certain DLCs plenty of times because they were too expensive, bought them when they went on sale for 50-75% off. that's just the nature of DLCs.

No I want to strap C-4 to em and send them into a crown and blow them up.

I played a pistols and knives only server yesterday. Its alot tougher to kill people on for sure. 1911 unsilenced point blank took two headshots to put a guy down. wtf I ran up behind him and tried to knife with the f key but it wouldn't do anything? So I pulled the pistol and aimed down the sights.

I never play servers smaller than 64p anymore so its a big change to go to a 32p. When one team starts getting stacked though its way more difficult to make any kind of a comeback. Normally I'll just grab a sniper rifle and pick people off and make some good points but pistols only you have to be close. I hit a guy 5 times with the scoped .44 from across the courtyard on metro and didn't get a kill.

Meh I dont class a couple extra MP maps the same as DLC like in ME3 for example. They should be free like the extra MP maps in almost every other online FPS. Imagine if Valve charged for the new maps in DODS, CSS, or DICE in BC2.. would be total fail. They have gone the Activision route like CoD.. even extra CoD maps used to be free..

Lets go with your analogy then...
In the case of a DLC, that chef makes a buffet, it takes him all day to make, but feeds a hundred thousand. This is just for PC players, that's $1.5 million that $15 map pack turns into. You can probably double that for the consoles.

In all honesty though, I find it hard to enjoy the game most of the time. It's all going fine one minute then suddenly the game turns to **** and hit detection goes horrible wrong.

I think a lot of us have a problem paying for DLC because the UT games always gave away tons of free content long after the game was launched.

Wasn't just the UT series though, it was just how things where done. Then the X-Box came along and changed all of that. Now we pay for a couple maps, a gun or two and maybe a new mode of play.

You read that wrong.

I didn't say it was automatically deployed nor did I specifically suggest that you didn't need to be commander. It was a simple description of how the UAV works. It further contrasts how it's better then mav. When the UAV is deployed you can do so anywhere in the map. It works by itself without the need of you manually flying it or manually spotting players. It works in such a way that it has a duration of how long it's active and how long you have to wait to use it again. None of which is how the mav works.

The whole point of the UAV was to get a general idea of where the bulk of the other team was and form a front line from there. But still allowed for flanking and other options to complete objectives .

Now image that happening on both rush and conquest from both sides of the team. Also, place the uay, instantly, anywhere on the map to let other pubbers know where the bulk of the enemy is. Wow, all of a sudden playing larger maps becomes fun again. Or else people can still play metro and/or the new DLC where the uav isn't needed.

But u see the restaurant was'nt an analogy, it was a real world example of how much things cost in relation to their entertainment value. Its funny how we'll pay $8 a beer @ a pub/club & not think anything of it, yet a map pack for $15 we'll balk @ it. My father tells me beer used to be $4 a bottle & coke .75 cents a can back in the 80's, now its double that, & games used to have free map packs, but times have changed. The world is always getting more expensive...in the 2030s we'll be looking back & complaining how games used to "only" be $60 & DLCs were $10-$15. Anyways, vote with ur money, if u dont like it, just dont buy it.

You don't make any sense as the MAV do everything you describe in a nutshell and you can spam those if you are close to support. Did you ever used the MAV at all? sounds like you never tried it.

LOL, you think uav can only be used as close support like mav. The implementation and use of the UAV is better then the mav. Apparently, you've never been commander in BF2. Perhaps you should go on over to youtube and watch a few videos. Here's a hint, you can place a uav anywhere on the map (without physically being there) and can support anyone who's playing the objectives. Not just close support.

Edit:
Here a a video showing how the uav in BF2 and how it's being used to cover flags. As I was saying earlier, the UAV allows you to play the objectives better and play as a team (look at the comments). Once deployed it auto scans the area for a duration of time and it's visualized on the mini map. Which is more representative to the environment but that's another topic of discussion.

I've been commander more than you can imagine, and you fail to provide a solid difference of why UAV is superior than MAV. Think about it, Commander provide communication and UAV support while he's sitting the entire game watching the map and communicating the front line to the squad mates while doing nothing than communicating and spotting. The UAV is nothing more than a tool you supply only once per minute where he think the battle is going on and only he have the power to do it. MAV is exactly the same thing because since there's no commanders, recons fill this role. Recons can move where he wants and communicate if he desires. You can sit a MAV anywhere idle hidden somewhere in the frontline or whatever you want and it still spot it surroundings while you fight.

Lol, yeah you don't know what you're talking about.
Here's a video using the mav, (uav video in my previous post). See the difference yet? MAV you have to spot. UAV it auto spots ground targets using a circular sweep. Get it yet? Hold on, here's more. UAV shows up on the mini map for several seconds the mav doesn't. The mav requires you to actually see the target the uav doesn't and will always show up on the mini map for as long as it available (or isn't shot down).

So there you go, this is why I said earlier that we need a uav in the game and why it's not the same as mav. Oh, but lets not forget that when deploying the mav it has to be on certain surfaces or else the mav will turn red (can't deploy it), . With the uav it always spawns overhead anywhere on the map.

Go play BF3 and come back when you actually try the MAV. No point arguing with you if you don't know what you talk about.

So you just arguing just to argue ? Yup, the whole concept of the uav is simply better. IMO, it would get people out of metro and into larger maps if they knew where the other team was. Seeing something like the uav on the mini map opens up a lot of opportunities to playing the game.

As I said, you want easy mode.. what happened to good old combat where you actually had to use your eyes, and not a map to find your enemies.

You can do just what you say without UAV, you just have to plan a little better, take a little more time, and use your terrain to determine the front line, not where the enemy is located on your map.

In a true real battle, you look over your terrain and decide where the choke holds are and the best offense, or defense positioning would be. No UAV needed.

In a true real battle, you look over your terrain and decide where the choke holds are and the best offense, or defense positioning would be. No UAV needed.

Chill, it's only a game we are talking about here not a real combat story . BF3 isn't Arma 2/3 nor is it a sim. Besides, without in game voip you can't 'plan a little better' with your squad without uav providing valuable information about the front lines, where players are, which objectives are clear enough to take, etc. Which is the point of having uav.

Besides, there is no in game voip to speak of. Anyway, I think larger maps would be more enjoyable to play and possibly played more then metro if people had a sense of where the front lines were during the round. And lets face it, there are other features missing that people have complained about and/or stop playing the game.

After Patch


Less blue tint for the out of bounds strips.
Everything else still looks the same though.

PS3 users are complaining left and right, many still have glitches etc. Overall it sounds like a massive nerf for vehicles (tanks 2 shots to front, choppers disable with one stinger). MG36 and QBB-95 no longer have extended mags, RPK has more ammo in the clip. Supression is greatly increased. IRNV has been cleaned up on some maps, pretty sure its still decreased range compared to pre nerf but on a map like metro it will be deadly.

You can also now buy unlocks for real money, seems BF3 has caught onto this free to play aspect. In some respects it at least gives newbs a chance in jets or choppers if they have money to burn.

The current balance for BF3 is pretty fine if you ask me, I'm quite worried that they are going to severly upset things with all these changes. No date on the PC patch yet.
