    Thats a play on words I think man. They already said only some of the map is destructible to preserve the core gameplay.

    I think what he means is if you destroy the same section of a map enough times it will equal the entire map in square footage. Savvy?

    He trollin. I mean it sounds like something I would say to F@#k with people. What he doesn't realize is hes playing with very volitional and finicky gamers hearts by saying shit like that. Hes acting this is a game or something. BF3 is serious business!

    Well they said they were doing "something else" as a Plan B for those without a commander (squads full, late joiners etc).

    IDK, why not Recon? Anything to move them further away from lone-wolf, sniper focus.

    Battlefieldo.com - Battlelog Page is back up

    Looks like DICE and EA are preparing for the upcoming BF3 Beta launch in September. Alpha Trial members should already know that the Subdomain battlelog.battlefield.com redirected to the official Battlelog website. The Battlelog went offline just at the end of the Alpha Trial and just today the Site popped up again, showing a Message that Battlelog will be back in "September".

    hopefully this means we are looking at a beta in early September as opposed to the rumors of mid-September. I had better get my pre-order in.

    It seems Demize is on the loose with info lately.

    Demize99
    @deathclawslayer Snipers and LMGs have heavy barrels by default. No barrel mods but others available.

    Demize99
    @GEN3RIC Each gun and kit saves it's own configuration. So it's quick to switch roles.

    Demize99
    @Andrewjaytee Back to Karkand includes new guns, no details on which how many or how they work yet.

    Demize99
    @Thomvdriet No WW2 weapons, yes there's a veteran weapon... no I'm not telling what it is yet.

    This one comes from someone unknown, but Demize retweeted it, so hoping it has a little gorund to stand on.

    Thylander
    Just a "for fun" calculation. There's about 34800 unique combinations of dogtags in bf3.

    Performance hit time! It's going to make the scenery look really nice though.

    Not sure if I have seen this posted, either way here it is.



    Summary:
    • 6 Mission Co-op
    • Maps built specifically for Co-op, not based off SP or MP maps (stuff borrowed though).
    • Random factor in Co-op depending on how you play enemies might come a different way, etc.
    • DLC will be based on what the community wants.

    Some interesting news about Co-op.

    Keywords in this interview that popped up more then once that Activision can learn from if they wish their CoD franchise to be more successful with the PC crowd.

    "Listen to the community"

    ---------


    BF3 is going to be totally jaw dropping and its amazing that they are still adding new modes to the game.

    I wish i could get into the beta.

    please remember that disregarding the 48 hour early access (for MOH and Orgin pre-orders) the beta will be open.

    Loving the sneak peak videos, I hope the new rig I am building will have a BD heart by the time this is released.

    Will 5870 crossfire be able to run it fully maxed with 60+ fps?

    we don't know, but rumors say "unlikely".

    the demos were run on SLI 580s (multiplayer anyway) it is unknown how much it will be optimized by release.

    i have a question, i have a 5850, I want to upgrade for BF3. Why should i go for Nvidia or why should i stick with ATI and which card would fit better. I do not like high priced items. If I want to buy a high priced item I will buy a new Bugatti Veyron Super Sport.

    go with the one that gives you most value for money.

    Secondly id recommend that you upgrade your 'base unit' first so you have some more muscle under the hood to drive any new graphics cards you pick. Id say your CPU is your weakpoint.

    wait for bulldozer or get a 2500k setup. 2500k's have seen some nice price cuts recently and they are a seriously good buy.

    Chances are you can run BF3 fine. If you could not run it, EA would be alienating a fuckton of gamers. Then again they are deciding not to use Steam... yeah you should upgrade, EA is full of idiots.

    I'm in the same boat as you man. Just wait. We don't even know the specs yet and by blowing money now I am willing to bet will be waste of time and money.

    A month ago all these guys were saying a 470 would be more then enough to run BF3 even when DICE themselves said "No system today can run it maxed out". Wait man. Just wait. Glad to see I was right.

    DICE are no idiots. They are just doing what the industry used to do for years. PUSH HARDWARE. Remember the days when PCs used to be cutting edge and didn't get ports? Now you call them idiots for brining it back? Cry me a river.
    H82LUZ73, Black Haru and mastrdrver say thanks.
