Please limit snipers per team.

Rearden2570d ago

True, but the great thing about Battlefield is the freedom to chose. Have you ever noticed that the team with the most sniper campers always loses?

Ducky2570d ago

... and that's why there needs to be a sniper limit.

SixZeroFour2570d ago

just play with friends or make friends with ppl that play the game right when playing with randoms

Caleb_1412570d ago

If they had a option in the server lobby to select the amount of snipers, while it wouldn't be conventional it would definitely solve the problem of balancing :) want 0 snipers per team? just select it!

DeadlyFire2569d ago

Screw that. I live to be sniper class. Camping I dislike though. Mobile sniper is best class to play as. :P

Awesome. This game just gets better and better as more details come out

mastiffchild2570d ago

I kind of have to agree but aren't you getting sick and tired of the WAY the info comes to us? We get this constant dripping tap thing where we get a little snippet EVERY day from DICE!! One day a little bragging and the next a bit of info on maps or a feature. I just wish they'd give us more in one place and not keep on with the seemingly daily soundbites.

Might just be me but it seems, every day, there's either EA or DICE saying something incredible or controversial about BF3 and I'd rather have a proper information blow out than feel they were playing a daft game.

I'm prolly just getting old.

rabidpancakeburglar2570d ago

Yeah I see what you mean but it's a great way of building suspense. Hopefully when the 12 minute gameplay vid comes we'll get more.

Do the people disagreeing with me think I'm a sniper or something?

no , i like this way , war games don't spoile anything , i just want to know if it's good or not , i know it's good but not for my brothers , they only play cod and my big brother is playing it right now , because the gameplay is fast , simple and fun but battlefield is too big , you run alot and kill less people and the gameplay feels a little heavy for no reason even though my brothers only use assault rifles and grenades ,that's it , that's why my brothers don't like it...
im not trolling or anything , they don't like killzone 3 - medal of honor - crysis 2 ...etc they still prefer to play cod...

it's just a game not a sim or anything , they should make the player less heavy , we want to have fun playing , we are not learning how to fight for wars or anything... games for fun..

DeadlyFire2569d ago

Well soldiers carry alot of crap. IF you are not heavy walking or sprinting on the battlefield you are not playing a game with realism at all. It is only in Arcady games you find super fast motions.

I've only played the bad company spinoff series but are there
like mortar strikes or something on bf like that??Cuz if there is i found my weapon against snipers.

jivah2570d ago

lol ya!! mortars .but they are limited to snipers only lol

have to be a sniper to catch a sniper lol :)

BattleAxe2570d ago (Edited 2570d ago )

Thats why they should have left things like they did in Bad company 1 where it was the Engineer that had the mortars.

therapist2570d ago (Edited 2570d ago )

on pc , the console maps in bf3 won't be as big as the maps on pc bf2 i doubt

ethan2570d ago

I hope you are wrong, but I have a feeling you may be right. Either way I'm sure it will be a great game on all systems.

PygmelionHunter2570d ago

Let's just hope they don't feel empty on consoles...

MysticStrummer2570d ago

The maps will have to be smaller than Bad Company 2's for that to happen. I'd rather have smaller maps than a warzone that feels empty.

LunaticBrandon2570d ago (Edited 2570d ago )

Don't worry they'll be scaled down a lot. Probably a lot narrower like the maps in BFBC2 to funnel the actions.

DeadlyFire2569d ago

I dislike living in a funnel.

BattleAxe2570d ago (Edited 2570d ago )

If they do things the way they did in Bad company 1 where the maps were bigger and people used the vehicles more, because the game was more focused around tanks, boats, hum-Vs, light armor vehicles and helecopters unlike BC2 where the maps were much smaller and the focus was more on being a foot soldier in smaller maps.

badz1492570d ago

...for consoles! it just feels right and never once i felt like being in an empty warzone.
