New server update balances for BF3

Battlefield 3 will see a brand new update tomorrow, October 11, across the Xbox 360, PC and PS3.

DICE writes on the Battlelog, "A new server update for Battlefield 3 is rolling out tomorrow on all formats, bringing more balancing tweaks to the Armored Kill gunship and the long awaited option to remove the minimap in Hardcore mode.”

Players should see the update take effect by 08:30 UTC October 11th. DICE also adds, "6 hours on consoles for these updates to be rolled out to all servers worldwide. On PC you should see these updates in about 24 hours on a majority of the servers.” (Battlefield 3, EA, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

It's about time.... Jesus, the game has really been laggy lately and just really silly.

This has been needed for awhile now.. I just hope it cleans up a lot of the problems and starts running sweet again, like it was in the beginning.

Haven't played BF3 since the private server console debacle crap. Has that been fixed yet?

If they fix that then they'll lose the money they get from the Server Renter's. So they'll Never fix that.

As a avid player of BF3 for the xb360 with alot of time in playing it,I will admit a true love for the game!

I recently got it for the PS3 and have to say that the servers for the ps3 seem to be pretty stable,with the only glitch ( and this goes for the 360 aswell ) is finding decent players who like to use there mic and work as a team to squad up with.

The graphics for the PS3 seem a bit more colorful than the 360's and runs just as good.

No matter what system you have,BF3 is hard to beat for a GREAT and a fun to play modern military FPS game. Of which I have truly got my monies worth out of playing!

Just search "DICE" in the server browser, or search for "200%" because there are plenty of 200% ticket servers with the default map rotation

They fixed that months ago... The problem now is that there are loads of empty DICE servers that fans were outraged about not being there that are not even being used.

the gunship needs to go in RUSH. doesn't work, it only works if the gunship moves around a large map otherwise it is just too easy to rack up 30/40 kills in no time at all. nobody plays it because of this, can rarely find a game going.

The defenders are SO CLOSE to the MCOMS then they are in the vanilla maps. Without the gunship, you can not take the enemy by surprise. If anything, they should reduce the amount of vehicles (tanks) that the defenders have.

LOOL your joking right??? if anything attackers have too many vehicles, anyways they fixed this. So it shouldn't be a more of a problem anymore.

@Krazy kombatant

Oh sorry, I meant attackers. The Attackers have WAY too many tanks.

I've only played 1 minute of rush on the AK maps.

I spawned as a defender and died in like 5 seconds because of the gunship, spawned and died again, it kept happening
Rob Hornecker  +   807d ago
The best advice that I can give you for dealing with the gunship is to have 1 person as a sniper with a SOFLAM to target the gunship and a engineer with a Javilan to lock on and shoot it down. As you may find that this tactic will take teamwork,but it does work VERY well.
Even if the gunship drops flares,as long as that SOFLAM is locked on,the gunship is TOAST!
