Two days after it’s launch, It looks like fixes for Battlefield 3 are already in the works.
Nice, looking forward to a changelog
i wouldnt expect any less... its the least devs can do when they release a game thats not always working properly or needs improvement in some areas.. some devs dont even do this..
They neeeed to fix the damn ps3 voice chat. I cam hardle understand my friends. Also, EA servers go down pretty often and that sucks.
I've noticed I can't 'cook' grenades. Is this deliberate? Anyone else got this problem?
Yes this is deliberate, but could change if enough fans request it most likely.
I don't think it's big deal, but I'd rather be able to cook.
Then get back to the kitchen!
Wouldn`t do it in the beta either , thought it was just down to the beta . We should be able to cook grenades , surely ? .
I would have thought so. It seems like an odd design choice given it's an ability in every other modern military shooter, including BF2, Bad Company and Bad Company 2.
Not only you can't cook but you can't really have full control of the grenade, including distance and direction, aiming and even bounce. This is simply poor implementation.
I hope for your life that you never join the military. No one cooks off a grenade in the military. It's too easy to slip up and die. Think about it. You have a live grenade in your hand. Would you wait until the last second to throw it or throw it immediately? I'll admit that when I was in the military, I cooked off a grenade once. But most of the time I just want to get rid of it (especially because I have had my fair share of slip-ups where I would be dead if I had cooked-off) So it's actually better if they don't have that implementation in the game. Bounce works if you throw at a wall but it instantly stops when touching the ground so I guess I can agree with that... I have no clue what you mean about aiming. If you throw at a 45 degree angle then it will be thrown farther than at a 10 degree...
Shack.... I would agree with you about the realism of the scenario you put forth. But I think that in a game it would be cool to be able to cook the grenades. That being said, I think we can all agree that the overall experience is awesome. Love this game.
Does anyone else think that grenades with a silly flashing light on them are...well...silly?
On day one, it was unplayable on the 360. Servers were down half of the time. Since yesterday things have picked up in terms of stability, but there are still some minor problems to iron out.
Any one notice sensitivity issues on the 360? So far so good for me.
Definitely noticed on PS3 (it has been there since the beta) when iron sighting. Sensitivity is too high and I end up over-shooting my target.
it feels more like input lag to me, still, I'm also overshooting my targets, and can't snipe at all
I am hoping that they fix the Punkbuster problem with certain servers kicking you due to lazy admins not updating. Be nice if they would tweak stingers, mortars, MAV, and SOFLAM too.
Good that they're fixing it. Ill hold off just a little more before buying it
Thank the LORD they are going to fix the mouse issues... I thought I was going fucking insane with the sensitivity.
Remmember how angry everyone was with the Resistance first day patch.
So the Day 1 patch didn't fix everything? How many bugs/glitches are in this game!?
right now, I'm waiting for the match to finish, because I can't respawn anymore... my HUD just disappeared, and the respawn menu with it.
Here is an idea, add voice chat in the pc version. I can not for the life of me figure out why they would put a multi-player, team based game out. And not have a way to communicate through the game, other than stopping and bringing up the text box. And yes I know you can voice chat in battlelog, but there is no clear cut way to friends request someone. Other than dropping out of the game typing a persons name in battlelog and waiting for them to accept your request. Couple that with origin and I think the logistics of the pc game are horrible. The game is great... but getting to the game sucks a$$!
u ever heard of this thing called teamspeak ... its a thing that is used for things that some games dont have
Yes I have heard of it. And you are correct its for games that don't have voip. But you would imagine this years greatest fps, trying to topple the COD king, would have voip on pc? Wouldn't you? I mean this is 2011 31 of your closest friends in a team based game going commando because they have no way to communicate with their team. That's just stupid!
After a game finishes, they should not lock all players in the summary screen. Waste about 30 seconds staring at the screen for info you can get away with in 2 secs, and if you wanna move on (press Start button to quit) and properly quit, you will have to wait for counter to 0 and wait for the next map to load. It'll be better at least to give players access to Customize during intervals.
maybe the day one patch broke a lot of things...
The game don't have too much glitches... but a few annoying ones... For me, Sometimes during combat everything goes silent, sometimes there is no reload animation, getting to the my soldier menu always takes a second try... sometimes my crosshairs disappear. P.S. I am obsessed with this game but MW3 will step right over this shit. Not kidding. I've already put in almost 20 hours... But this game has only 9 maps... Do you know that MW2 had like half again as much? MW3 has crazy killstreaks, twice as many frames per second and cool perks... BF just has better graphics, massive maps and vehicles...
The biggest difference is gameplay.... Im loving BF3 gameplay over COD gameplay , but i will get MW3 through gamefly to test it out myself
My biggest gripe is the the Battlelog should be implemented into the game....its very annoying to have to get on my laptop just to create and edit my Platoon..... Battlelog is like a facebook just for battlefield and wouldve been great if it was in game.. BTW Platoon name is Death -n- Destruction accepting members if you have battlelog...smh
