After players complained that Battlefield 3′s controls had changed since the beta, DICE gameplay designer Alan Kertz has responded with disbelief, saying they’ve not been altered at all.
There must be some kind of unspoken competition between devs on who can insult their fans more...
Wow, it's almost as if game developers are real people.
well with some games i actually think the devs are just a bunch of robots, that randomly put gameplay elements together... :)
@AllroundGamer I dunno why but your statement brings Gears 3 to mind. :| I haven't finished it yet but..
That's funny, I know some real people who don't feel the need to insult the hand that feeds them. Not me, though; I told my boss that he was a crackhead today (/s).
Because if you answered yes to that, then you've fucked half your audience, DICE.
How do you explain people claiming the controls have changed when they apparently haven't changed at all? Sounds like crack to me.
Probably one of the best responses I've seen from a dev. Lol.
if you guys have played the game you would know that the controls are the same as the beta...
“You’re on crack,” spouted gameplay designer Alan Kertz on Twitter. ”There’s been no controls changes since the beta.” Correct... it appears once again we have trolls in the media trying to claim issues with BF3 that don't even exist. But it seems to be the norm these days on all games to get trollers trying to claim non-existent issues.
IM not trolling, but there is a weird lag feel while aiming. This i believe what they are talking about.. it was not in the beta and i can't play on ground atm cause of it. I've only ask two other people about it and they said the same.
Claiming lag issues and spouting that controls have changed are two different things. What do you mean by... "...i can't play on ground atm cause of it."?
MW3 ftw :)
im still having fun in black ops being the lucky few out of everyone i know to not buy a single map pack lmao
COD4 ftw :p
How did AllroundGamer get disagrees with that? COD4 is one of the best FPSes of time in many people's opinions. Then COD when significantly downhill.
Because it is off topic...
Good for them. We need more responses like this towards cry babies.
How so? He could have replied with: We have spent two years creating this game and the controls have not been changed. So simple, yet so effective.
Like someone above said, they're human. While that may not have been the best response, it's understandable why he said that. There's only so many ignorant messages from ignorant people one can take before you get frustrated.
The amount of media hype Battlefield 3 is getting is stupidly amazing. There are other games in the world y'know. Like Assassin's Creed.
In fairness to EA and Dice it's necessary for them to go over the top on the hype to compete with MW3. It may seem annoying and juvenile to us... but it is unfortunately one of the main tools that companies have to use to compete. COD is so massive and gets a lot of it's sales based purely on it's hype and popularity.... therefore BF3 is just being promoted on the same kind of level.... even though it's annoying to us gamers who understand gaming more than the average public who only get to see the hype. The hype is designed to get the people who don't know about or have never played BF... they know the majority of long time gamers already have formed opinions.
Blame Ubisoft for not marketing Assasins Creed more. Not EA for marketing BF3 a lot...
You guys are very ignorant, honestly, If you guys could've paid more attention to the post, you guys would've known that the PS3 version is having severe input lag issues, not on PC or Xbox 360, but on PS3, universal across SP, Coop, and MP, for those of you who were going to reply with a smart-ass comment: Servers are overloaded for the first week, so this doesn't have anything to do with the servers, and the fact that the Xbox 360 version isn't having this problem means that this is a bug not a gameplay design decision, and for those of you lucky PS3 gamers out there who aren't having any problems, good for you, but a lot of people are, go check on the forums, there are 5 pages threads on this and everyone is having this problem, so more and more people are having this problem, and for those of you who think that I am just hating, have a look at this: http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... Time to open your eyes and face reality, demize99 is the one on crack, doesn't realize that a whole load of people are having this problem, who didn't have it on beta, this is a game breaking issue, and must be resolved with in a week, before MW3, otherwise I guess we all know what's going to happen then.
I hate complainers but if this is true dice need to sort it out.
YOU have said it MY MAN!!! i've been having that issue as well. im gonna try uninstalling and installing. see if that works. Bubbles for you sir
LOL Thanks :)
YES there is a lag and im pretty sure a plasma tv shouldn't have that much lag. meanwhile bf3 does have it and i'm not on crack
What does that have to do with the controls? Hell, I think they're the same controls from BC2 (with additions), to say nothing of the beta.
I'd Like to add that I got this game on PS3 yesterday. Immediately noticed the input lag... Didn't expect to get it or notice it. If DICE says they haven't changed the controls then that is all it could be... Lots of people saying on the forums that it's a design choice, it's completely different from the beta. I really hope the patch this...
the controls are FINE on the PS3... hell, i've been playing for damn near 8 hrs now... controls work perfectly... that was just one idiot on TWITTER that was being basically an idiot ...
They are the same as on the beta?
I got the game today (ps3) and it's really fun and good but my game has frozen 2 times, 1 in SP and 1 in MP... :(
It's funny how personal Twitter statements turn into company statements in the news. It's his personal account, his description even reads "All Thoughts my Own" (just like many other dev accounts). But who cares, right? It's all about the hits
I concur with the devs...the controls have NOT changed, period. People are strange. I'm starting to think Activision is planting FUD stories out there.
I can say the flying controls are different. Its a lot harder flying heli and jets. Another thing people need to learn to tag. flying is almost useless without it
I wouldn't be surprised if a large number of gamers actually are on crack.
Well I am on crack. It's goooooddd.
That was a poor response, giving an arrogant answer without investigating first if there is a really a problem, and there is.
maybe dice is already in some pressure that makes them not being able to concentrate on all problems
It seems like a lot of articles about Battlefield 3 are on fanboy war gasoline. The game is great no matter what hardware you use this generation. Get over it. EDIT: Great or Horrible, to you that is, but still doesn't matter.....
For people who are really having issues with the controls,you can just move the sticks around,you have to feel your way through your movements...don't know if that makes sense,but yeh
i really like how all you disagree with this dev. Get over it ,you suck.If i was a dev The controls are just fine quit complaining. God i hate you kids!
I need a new website that doesnt have much gibberish can somebody please help me out? Name a few. Eh what am i thinking....Im going to get disagrees from kids anyway lol
ithe controls take some getting use to but once you find the right sensitivity its a blast . come on people aren't you all hardcore ? adapt . not everything plays like call of dudu
