Check out some new information for Battlefield 3.
Thanks DICE. No more throwing the controller at the wall because you had an awesome round and racked up a lot of score/kills because you got disconnected from the server.. Best news all day..
Plus all the rage quitters getting smashed who quit out the bad game and only play the good ones so they can pad their stats with only the good stats. I known people who disconnect their internet just for that reason then try to deny it and say something must be wrong with the connection but it always seems to happen when they're getting destroyed in stats.
lol thats sad but true. too many people take a game a bit too seriously. a game is meant to be for fun. on to[ic - im looknig forward to playing the game before it launches so i can 100% decide if i want to buy the game or not. i wish mw3 did this too.
I have lost A LOT!!!! of points because of this in Bad Company 2. Not only because of getting kicked off by the server but also having some rounds just not remember your stats at all even though you finished the round and it saved fine. It hasn't happened recently to me but it has happened quite a bit in the past. Getting kicked off is one thing but finishing and without any indication that the stats didn't save properly is really annoying.
would of loved to try the jets but I can wait for release. bring it!
I agree plus I think it would have been a better test map because of all the things going on (and of all the things that could go wrong).
Its all good. We dont need jets in beta
No more rage quitters that hit the dashboard to not lose kd. Good job.
I would imagine it wouldn't really matter for those kind of players. If they're getting spanked and their k/d is bad they're still going to quit aren't they? There's no difference (other than leaving a shitty round that you're sucking at) between staying until the end of the round and getting beat with a bad k/d and quitting half way through the round with a bad k/d. I actually think this gives those type of players a bit of an advantage. Think about this... in Bad Company 2 you had to play until the end of the round to get points. There was a few round I was getting spanked bad but I stuck around to get my points. If I'm half way through the round now there's no incentive for me to stay for the remainder of the beating unless... quitting = lose points?
What? Your stats would disappear in BFBC 2 if someone disconnected? That sucks. I'm shocked that they didn't have it setup like COD does and you only lose the XP points. It still keeps your kills and deaths if someone rage quits in COD. And that's a real shame about no jets. What's the good of a beta if you can't tell them what's wrong with all the stuff in the game. Tanks and Jets included.
So when they say "saved in real time" does that mean saving while I play with no interruptions or the game is going to save every time I die like the last game? That got pretty annoying when I spawn and I'm frozen in the game just standing there for a couple of seconds. Anything could happen. Someone please clarify this.
They had realtime stats in BFBC2 also.
