Some where EA execs are laughing (and spilling Grey Poupon on themselves) as they are being chauffeured to the bank to get their FREE MONEY!

well you actually get more for your money with DLC in BF3 than you do with any COD.

At least BF gives you more guns and different vehicles along with more maps.

COD better watch you butts next gen... BF is eating away at your market slowly but surely.

I would agree but every year a new batch of 12yr olds are coming in to prove you wrong. Lol.

I have no idea how people can play that game with the net coding the way it is? Maybe it's better on the consoles? It's a joke on the PC.

What's wrong with the network? It doesn't seem to lag for me.

My bullets don't register. I'll sneak up behind a person and put nearly an entire clip into someone and they still won't die and i'll be dead in 2 bullets. It's not my ping, PC, internet, etc. I have new hardware and a 15Mbps connection. Just google BF3 netcode and you'll see I'm not the only one suffering with this issue. In BF2, BF2142, and COD4 I'd consistently do well enough to be called a cheater on a regular basis. I struggle to get a 1 K:D in BF3.

@^ Huh, I guess it affects not just you. That's odd and sucks pretty bad.

It could also be your service provider or your router settings because if the netcode was actually bad, then everyone would have the same problem, not just certain people. (Unless it's the bad netcode that only hurts certain people)
JsonHenry  +   806d ago
I would check settings or something. I don't have any of the problems you are having and I have the same type of service you have through TimeWarner.

Although it would seem you are not alone after google searching like you suggested. But no one I know has had that sort of trouble.

must be your connection maybe. It's been solid for a while now.
Veni Vidi Vici  +   806d ago
Nope. I even had my internet company come out and check it.

Don't have any issues on PC for BF3 at all. Even in games with 100+ ping.
famoussasjohn  +   806d ago
check pingtest.net and see if your connection is working properly.

Maybe tinker with your settings as well. I have no issues with killing people ever. What are your specs of your pc?

Actually each platform has over 7 million Gamers.

BF3 is over 21m units sold and the netcode is Waay better than COD.

PC version has dedicated servers which plays FINE so I have no clue what your talking about and I think your just talking out of your Arse or YOUR connection Sucks!

Hmmm. The dlc in Battlefield is of a very high quality but I can't help feel, as an older gamer, that this level of purchase of the premium season pass is a sad reflection on what the industry has become and sadder still, the number of people who seem happy to effectively pay the equivalent of 2 full price games on one title rather than buying another game like the old days.

Same feelings towards COD season pass and that's worse as the games life cycle is only 1 year and the dlc is worse imo. At least BF3 was a 2 year game I guess.

Next gen will be more of the same with the added spectre of digital only where devs will throw carrots to encourage a digital purchase and those of us who like our physical media will get a bit less each time.
