... it's SO frustrating to get a loss of connection right at the end of a match when you've done well.

you still get all your points when the match ends. Battlelog keeps track that you were in the game and gives them to you.

... so you won't get any points/unlocks/awards/whatever , as far as I know.

There have been time when I unlocked something, got disconnected, and had to unlock it again.

Too late I already traded my copy. I couldn't get online for almost two weeks.

really? I what system? I bought PC thru Orgin and i really couldn't get online for 2 weeks but on consoles? that sound slike your internet/360/ps3/router problem and not the game

It was on PS3. I was able to play Resident Evil 5, Uncharted 3, and Killzone 2 all online during that same period. But I couldn't get on BF3. It happened a couple of times before but only a couple of days. I traded it for Resistance 3 and I was able to play online with that game too.

Does this patch/maintenance fix clipping through objects? Like when I knife a foot I see sticking through a wall for the kill?

Then, pi$$ off DICE. Your lack of priorities with PS3 issues, and technical issues that are with their greater than Christ frostbite 2.0 engine....I'll be passing on your future titles.

(unless it's mirrors edge 2.....that game surpasses my disdain for its developer)

Lol at the angry comments. I'm going to link you guys to the bfbc2 comments when it first came out. You guys think DICE games are perfect from the start!? No, they got that way through numerous patching.

People say bfbc2 was amazing, but that was after they patched it up. When it released people were complaining just like you guys now. Complain complain complain.

So very very very very very very true. All BF games start out as a buggy and generally unbalanced mess after 3 or 4 patches most of the stuff gets fixed.
