Senior Gameplay Designer Frederik Thylander has revealed some new information regarding the point system implemented in Battlefield 3.
I'm really glad that they're giving snipers more incentives to help out the team. I don't play as a sniper myself, but I hope snipers in my team will start using the beacons more often as it helps a lot when we're attacking.
Can't wait to blow up some stuff with the SOFLAM!
This is Off-Topic but... Site down for 10 mins! Just a heads up.
Final build of the game is where it shows the true BF3.... in the final build the animations are fixed, no more damm bugs you hated in the beta and weapon balance...!
Yes, it looks much much better!
Indeed, that's why i told all my friends to don't look to the beta as the real BF3... if you look at the final build you can see how the textures problems and enviroment is fixed ;) More stable FPSs as well! EDIT: You can also see a smoother version of the knifing animation
Biggest thing I'm happy about is that is seems like the hit registration has been greatly improved. Definitely a big must!
Indeed Mister_V the netcode of the game improved a lot since BC2 :)
Thank god for that.
I cannot wait....Just 8 more days.
Who else is going to the mid-night launch? I think I will!
I am going to pre-load the game on my PC on the 21st. Fun stuff.
I'm with Leon, but have fun Criminal! :D
The only thing I don't like is how long it takes to knife someone. I don't want it to me Call of Duty fast, but somewhere in between. Other than that, gameplay is stellar.
I agree, just a tad bit faster.
Yeah the knifing could be faster, more realistic. But the thing that got to me the most was the knife hit detection. I'd knife a guy twice and he wouldn't die..then he'd turn around and kill me. Lots of those moments that made me pissed.
knifing him in the front wont kill him. go back to COD if you want to one shot someone by slicing his feet. learn how to play sounds like you got outplayed
yeah kinda weird but someone posted a comment at the bottom of that article saying about how you ranked up very quick in the beta which is a good point as I put in just over 13 hours and was already a rank 24 where as in BFBC2 i've clocked near enough 130 hours and am only a rank 26. Hopefully this was just the case in the beta jus so people playing would get a better felling for the game by unlocking stuff quicker.
I heard that the final build will have a different progression system.
SOFLAM basically is what the sniper has in BFBC2 binoculars to call in mortar strikes
No it isn't. SOFLAM is a vehicle laser painter. Support class has the mortar this time around.
Can't wait for this to hit. I'll be there at midnight launch.
Damn, I was deadly as Recon before, now I'll be unstoppable (I was top 100 in the world ;P) Though I doubt I'll be using the SOFLAM. I found the recon drone far too useful. And I never ever used the mortar in BC2. It seemed too noobish. I prefer getting up close and personal. None of this sniping from random corners of the map. As for the progression system, it'll be different in the final release. I got up to level 45/46 in the beta and maxed out Recon completely. So it'll definitely be altered.
*Edit: The site was down when I made that comment about the SOFLAM, and I based what I said on Malol's comment: 'SOFLAM basically is what the sniper has in BFBC2 binoculars to call in mortar strikes'. Now I've been able to read the article I can see that Malol was wrong, and that the SOFLAM is in fact an extremely useful laser designator. I loved C4ing tanks in BC2 (I platinumed by C4 doing so), so I'll definitely be on the front lines painting those targets! :D
I wish that it wasn't just the support guy with claymores... I mean they don't have to worry about claymore whoring because you can crouch or prone past them... I definitely think it should take a little longer to level up... And i don't know about the sniping in this game... theres just too many goddamn people sniping... and to make it worse have of them have flashlights so when you shoot back you'll likely miss...
please dont let there be too many wookies :( i love moving wookies, but the camping wookies are lame..
