MP1st - "A wealth of information has recently surfaced regarding aspects of Battlefield 3 that DICE is looking into patching."
I can't wait for the patch, but it seems like a big patch that will address every major and minor problem in the game, so I'll wait as long as they get everything fixed.
I think this game will be a masterpiece in a couple months. According to the podcast with Kertz, they're gonna be spending a lot of time tweaking things until its just perfect.
yeah it cant come soon enough... only thing that really bothers me is the input lag on PS3.. never had this issue with BC2.. i can overlook the disconnecting problems and imbalances, but not this
Input lag? I have had no problems with anything like that and i have the ps3 version, the only problem i have had is being randomly dcd from servers.
Ya know what I liked best about your comment mate..... masterpiece in the coming MONTHS. amn right this game is and will be epic for many many months to come, not weeks like other MP games. See ya on the battlefield.
ya what input lag on ps3
Try switching to Game mode on your TV if its an HD one.
How about the chat box, anyone find this to be annoying? They need to make it more better in every way (visually). Also i would like to be able to still say GG to others once the match is over, I know their tiny things but they shouldn't be hard to add.
They were supposed to fix that with the beta and now it's been over 2 weeks since the launch.....so why's it taking so long?
sweeet cant wait some things look good about the patch
I love DICE's gun balance. I think it makes sense to me and also doesn't make things too easy.
there is toooo many guns i like in this game i don't have time to use them all lol i just try and keep switching it up lol
Just fix the green screen that flickers every once in awhile and the voice communication on PS3 and i'm good.
I agree they have to fix the chat problems on the PS3 i hate not being able to talk with friends while playing BF3!
Exactly, i'ts a shame after more than 2 weeks they've not fixed this unusual problem.
Green screen that flickers ? i havent seen that yet. The chat issues i hope will be fixed tho it was the same as BFBC online play too
Here's a video. http://youtu.be/DVU7fYkqS6E
Im not getting that at all ive put a few hours into online so far like around 12, that vid was from the beta too but if it has persisted perhaps its not a game issue but more a tv connection issue. It does seem very annoying tho so i am very grateful it doesnt happen to me.
Only complain I have is that I can't leave a game after it's done.
Yeah I find that annoying too. Also, the fact that I can't change my load-out while the "killcam" is playing.
No mention in this article of the PS3 VOIP issues. I hope those are addressed in the next patch cause its terrible right now, otherwise the game fricken rocks!
We did report on the PS3 issues a while back (12 days ago). They should be addressed in the upcoming patch. http://n4g.com/news/875447/...
@ExPresident No problem, any time. :)
Criminal: you guys are doing great job with everything BF you publish. Thanks!
Those tactical ight are too bright in daylight combat...flashlights are useless under sun light and the request for ammo, health. I don't think is working.
Yes, I dont think you can request health/ammo in BF3.. or it's just broken atm.. I remember in BC2 you could put your croshairs over a friendly and hit the select/back button to request ammo, health, or even a ride if they were in a vehichle.
I think is broken because you always get this message prompting you to request for something.
You get the prompt if you are either less then 100% in health or ammo and one of those types of players is near you. The problem is that often you will press the button to prompt for a kit and you won't hear the request being yelled.
The main problem I have with the light, other than what you said.. Is that in some dark areas, the flashlight doesn't light up anything. The FL is too bright in the sunlight, and too useless in a dark corridor. And, it prolly won't matter about the request, unless you have team players. -.- I don't know how many times, I've requested ammo, and the idiot doesn't give any. And, because the idiot doesn't give me any ammo, I end up dying because of it..
If people read this far down, just to let you know. NVIDIA has beta drivers out now that fixes almost all the problems with cards around the 560ti.
Good call. Thank you
I started noticing the input lag last week when I played on my sister's nice tv. Then when I got back to my tv I could still notice it. I hope it gets fixed. There should be a limit on repair points for a certain amount of time. I agree with the suggestions above.
Another thing that drives me crazy is that it seems to be impossible for my party/squad to all get placed on the same side of a team. I have two frieds who also play BF3, and when we squad up in the menu, usually the squad is split up and one squad member will be placed on the opposite team.. Kinda silly since we're all in the same party and can only comunicate with each other. takes away the teamwork aspect and it needs to be fixed.
Yes. That needs to be fixed ASAP!
As long as the ability of playing against your friends isn't totally removed, I love being able to switch teams and lay down a beating on my friends.
You need to make sure there are a lot of empty spaces before entering a match. If a match shows 20/24 on the server and your squad is 4 people then don't choose it. Odds are that those 4 remaining spots are on opposite teams. If you have a squad of 4 then try and choose a server showing 14/24 to 17/24 to give yourself a better chance of there being 4 open slots on one team for your squad to join up. And if one of or more of your squad does happen to get on the other team then either back out or take the opportunity to play dogtag tag... an added game within the game of trying to get your friends dogtags on the other team. And then hopefully by the next couple of rounds your team slots will free up and the other squad member can switch over. I would like to see the possibility of having non-ranked peer to peer connections so Platoons can match up and play some competitive games against other Platoons.
just let the jets repair like bf2 by flying over runway. the aa in the game needs to be fixed its over powered and jets and choppers are under powered. chopper rockets need more damage, jets need more gun damage to ground targets, double damage if a10 or su39. i found some weapons could use a tweak to recoil.
i just wish i could figure out how to switch to missiles from guns in a jet, or is it actually a perk I need to unlock. Yes I suck at the flying vehicles but ill own ur ass in a tank =)
You need to unlock rockets for the Jet.
Once you unlock rockets then you will press the "Y" button (on xbox 360) to change gun type. Note if you are outside view it will automatically take you into 1st person view when you change gun type. Also, for those that are having a difficult time flying... try to switch the controls for aircraft to Legacy and possibly invert your controls. Some people find this much better for their play style.
They should have put Harriers or the VSTOL version of the new JSF in the game instead of Hornets,then you could land easily and get repairs. Alternatively they could have set up an automated land, re-arm and repair function for the jets, but only over the bases.
Good idea... but I would make you have to at a minimum approach the runway properly and low enough for it to give you the auto-land.
Thank god for the tact light nerf. As for the recoil...welcome to a PC game. Thats how it should be. If you can't handle recoil then go play MW 3.
You know MW3 is a pc game too right?
Don't mind Bolts. He's still blinded from the Tactical Light to see that.
It is? Why bother?
Fix voice chat being screwed up when more than 2 people in squad try and talk and squads splitting up on PS3 is REALLY annoying and frustrating, can't believe over 2 weeks in and this hasn't been fixed yet.
They said that they are working on that.
They should have made that a top priority and released a seperate patch just for those issues, we're talking about game breakers here. My friends last night tried 3 times to get the 3 of them into a round together and then they just quit out of frustration. Another night I was playing with another buddy and it was fine, a 3rd guy joined us and chat went to shit and the teamwork was completely lost. These ruin the game. I hate how DICE is trying to make ONE BIG patch, they need immediately patch the HUGE problems like squads splitting up and chat not working. This is a team-based strategy game... and it doesn't work.
@szarky ya it definitely needs to be fixed but if your having trouble getting your squad together dont do quick match, browse for a server thats almost empty
Hey I just got battlefield a few days ago and I still can't figure out how to customize the defender team in my soldier it doesn't seem to have a toggle switch between US and Russia.. Any help would be extremely appreciated.
You're having problems because DICE made the a bad game design decision with their weapon load-out menus. If you've played Bad Company 2 you know how good it could be, try finding something in B3 and you'll be pulling your hair out. Ohhhhhh you have all the information/options there, but you gotta' really work for it.
Agreed, the weapon/loadout selection was far superior on BC2, you have to go through too many menus on BF3, a bit on the clunky side.
I completely agree. I don't like the weapon loadout for BF3. Bad Company 2 was perfect IMO.
You will just need to do it from within the game and you are on the defender side. It will then remember your settings next time you go into the game. Yes, DICE did nerf a few of the simple things in the menus. Not being able to have a Go to Menu button after a game and before the next game starts is annoying me the most. I shouldn't have to wait for the next game to load and then QUIT.
I wonder if they can patch how the whole game is only snipers sitting in bushes across the map the entire time... hmm.
What??? No lens flare nerf? WTF DICE
I adore this game but want them to seriously make the air vechiles more up to speed. They all seem a bit under powered.
I agree. Every weapon for the air vehicles takes way too much to get a kill on infantry. They work good on vehicles though.
That's an understatement, I spent way too much time trying to unlock stuff for jets and heli's and all it did was absolutely KILL my K/D and SPM. My stats went to shit. Why? Like you said the air vehicles are so underpowered but also DICE made the mistake of NOT making a tutorial or offline mode to practice the damn things. I'm southpaw legacy, who the hell would have known that if it wasn't for me and my friend dicking around in the co-op heli mission trying all the different settings.
Im really enjoying BF3, unlike another game I can name!Every match I play seems different because theres so much you can do (i.e jump in a jet/heli, go on a rampage in a tank!Go on a drive by with a ATV)!Or just get down and dirty old school. I think the classes are well balanced, good idea to swap C4 from Recon to Support because now a tank cant be blown up by a sneaky sniper. My personal/favorite setup: Assault - M416A (with RD, Foregrip, Silencer)...But I like the fact the 4 setups are dramatically effect your strategie and tactics. I do have a few problems with the game 1) Why cant I exit a game when it finishes straight away not wait until the next map loads(when im getting pwnd i want to get the hell outta there asap) 2) The rare dropouts and unable to connect 3) I want private squads (If there is I dont see how) 4) A tutorial for vehicles especially jets coz those muthaFuthas shoot me down before I can even get a hang off it. Or even a Air Superority mode like in BF1943 5)tactical lights are way to bright and team mates lights shouldn;t effect me 6)Auto customisation on my weapons when I unlock something BOG OFF 7)Wheres KARKLAND DLC
agree totally except for 5 because that doesn't make sense. 7) coming in Dec.
The flashlights just frustrate me, the power consumption on a light like that would be huge and unrealistic. You could guide a ship hundred miles from the coast with the thing lol! And I find that sometimes people on my time seem to flash me and laser me and the worst possible times. Really all I want from that list is 3 and 4
There are plenty of things that need sorting, but most of them have been mentioned here so I won't repeat them, but one other thing I find a bit annoying is the blue triangles above team-mates heads can sometimes be hard to see... so in some places it can take a second or two to work out if it's a team-mate or an enemy and by that time you are getting shot.... I know if in doubt you can just open fire... but still, it's annoying! I also have seen at least one example of some cheating, last night I was playing with a friend and the top player in our team had 85-0 kills and something like 20,000+ or 200,000+ points... I forget which...
Im yet to see a cheater so that aint bad
