Any difference!? Tell me!

Yes, squad system has been changed so you can actually join the squad you want.

Rubber banding is fixed, game seems much smoother now.

I want the PS3 patch now! Sorry I'm so demanding....but fix the SQUAD AND MIC! You know....the main we can actually play as a squad/team!

I love it when I hear people complaining about such small things like IRNV and flashlights being too bright when the MAIN, BIGGEST part of the game has been broken for almost a month now is it on PS3? Squads split up, chat doesn't work for more than 2 people. For a team game I can't believe DICE didn't fix those 2 things separately ASAP.

My friends and I have been conference calling each other to make it work how sad is that.

Yeah its broken for the PS3. I have no knowledge on the 360 or PC. Although I do have the PC version but don't play it.

And from what I remember, DICE said that it was a BETA only issue and that it was fixed on the Retail Version. I think don't quote me on that.

Like 2 days ago I was on BF3 in a squad with 4. Took forever to get in the same squad let alone the same damn team. One of my squad mates got tired so just left and went on to play alone. We finally got into a game eventually with 3 of us. MIC didn't work, like always. So one of the guys I was playing with sent me a message with his SKYPE info. Yeah, he wanted me to SKYPE. Didn't bother doing it. Especially since I play with the PS3 stereo headset and I don't want to take them off.

Its bad. I just hope this gets fixed ASAP like you said and separately. I don't know how the process works with updating and stuff, but as soon as they get it fixed properly, they should release it. And worry about the other "problems" once this is fixed!

Mobile AA is still so powerful that it is pointless to use air vehicles. I tried it again today and went 22-2 effortlessly. I have given up on piloting in this game. What a shame.

Cosmit2430d ago

Well only on the maps that have the mobile AA. Other than that, flying isn't a problem.

Szarky2430d ago

That's funny because on consoles it's so unbalanced because of the big maps and only 12vs12 that NOBODY uses AA. I've tried but they're so useless in the beginning without any perks/add-ons. You shoot at the planes but don't hit them.

And suprise suprise they broke more than they fixed....have a look at the battlelog forums and try playing the game yourself.

Its broken more than before for most people.

DICE cant program games.

Classic DICE. It wouldn't be 'DICE' otherwise I guess
