    sorry, I meant to say EA Flash Deal. I have more friends and family on consoles than PC. I have a feeling the PC version will have some Jank to it.

    Lots of smooth Caspian Border Gameplay (unlike my laggy experiences)

    New Battlefield Bog Post: Shop for Battlefield merch straight from DICE at the new DICE Store (Beta)

    BY: HBrun POSTED : Sep 28, 2011, 12:00AM

    [​IMG]
    Designs straight from DICE, for male and female fans of Battlefield, Mirror's Edge, and more. Hit the pic to go straight to the DICE Store.

    We are very excited to announce that the DICE Store just went Beta!

    The DICE Store is where you will find a selection of premium merchandise designed by us at DICE, covering Battlefield, Mirror's Edge and upcoming brands. You can see a small selection of what's available right now in the image above. We will constantly update the DICE Store with new designs, and soon we will start reaching out to you, our fans, for ideas and contributions on future designs. Stay tuned!

    You can head to the DICE Store right away to browse the currently available selection of tees, hoodies, and more. Some of the items are ready to ship in 7 days, and some are for pre-order and will be shipped mid-October.

    To celebrate the opening of the DICE Store Beta, if you place an order by Friday 24:00 PST and use the code BATTLEFIELD3, you will get 10% off any item.

    Welcome to our store, and let us know what you think!

    Battlefieldo.com - HD CASPIAN BORDER BETA SCREENSHOTS. I suppose these are sanctioned for release by DICE, also.

    Now we bring you a package of high res Caspian Border screenshots taken from the 64 player conquest version of the map. For those of you who have played Operation Metro, you are going to be blown away by Caspian Border. It is honestly one of the best battlefield experiences we’ve had. The map combines close infantry with vehicles. There is nothing better then hiding in a set of trees next to a road, waiting to pop a RPg-7 on a unsuspecting tank. Here are the set of screenshots courtesy of King0rism for your viewing pleasure.

    We’ve got a section on our forums for those of you wishing to share your favourite beta moments!

    Follow this link for the screen shots.

    Planet Battlefield - Battlefield 3 Beta and the Caspian Border map
    0:54 PST | ^Scott^ | Print News | Category: BF3

    If you are in the Battlefield 3 PC beta you know there are a number of password protected servers running the map Caspian Border. Earlier today the password was leaked basically making it public, which is not what DICE had intended. Battlefield Community Manager, Daniel 'zh1nt0' Matros posted some information on how they are handling the Caspian Border testing.

    My sob story: I was in the group of people (the Community Pressroom, a Google Group set up by zh1nt0) that was actually TOLD by zh1nt0 the latest password and invited to play the Caspian Border map. But, since it was effective starting at noon EST, I didn't have a chance to play that level until after it had been leaked to the world. Poor me. :( (PS. It wasn't me that leaked the password...)

    Been playing for about 10 rounds so far and very happy with it. The bugs are annoying, but I'm most pleasantly surprised about my performance. High 30's to low 50's outside and 40's to 70's inside. 5870, q9550-stock, 4gigs ram all on ultra @ 1080p with lowered AA. I may just wait on an upgrade after all.

    although I'm guessing big outdoor expanses like Caspian might make my puter cry a little more. I am however getting a really strange freezing/locking up that seems almost heat releated. I have manually turned my fan up on the GPU , it seems to help. I'm also running the hotfix drivers.

    Well, I hear of everyone lagging in Caspian, but I haven't had any lag. I actually am downloading at 1.5mb/s right now and still wasn't really lagging. Anyways, I got some Jet seat time and took some screens, so enjoy!

    Caspian is massive by vehicle, or extremely massive by foot, yet by air, for all those worried about slow jets. The map moves by pretty damn fast. Also I wasn't having a ton of trouble flying with my mouse, but I'm sure a joystick will be better.

    **EDIT**
    Just tried the Steam trick. You do not need to disable Origin in-game. Just make sure you don't have Origin and Steam in-game open at the sametime and you will be fine.

    I will say this:
    I thought the beta was garbage.
    That is, until i tried caspian border.
    OMFG
    CASPIAN BORDER

    reminds me of dragon valley from BF2
    THIS IS BATTLEFIELD, not battle corridor.

    screenshots do not do it justice.

    while running around or in vehicle, jet's and helicopters are constantly flying in the sky.
    IT's a beauty.
    OMFG
    shame I don't actually own the full thing.
    :'(

    How and the hell do you choose squads, or join a specific one? I can only leave a squad, then it puts you into the same one when you join another.

    The only place I notice it is really bad around 1st crate A, and a bit other places in that 1st flag spot. After that it's fine. Do you get it at other sets of crates?

    No, I don't. But it's still pretty bad. I can't even defuse at A without falling in.

    I really want to try Casipain border, but it's all password protected. :shadedshu

    Here are the last few matches i played:

    I think I got in the groove big time. Here is my strategy:

    Weapons:

    Silenced UMP w/ ACOG and Laser
    Silenced Glock 17 w/ Laser

    Theory:

    If I run around the map with silenced weapons I will never be detected, and kill everyone before they figured it out.

    Proof:

    http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/battlereport/show/69956/1/225759635/

    Best game:

    [​IMG]

    I had a life in there where I got 20ish kills with my UMP and sidearm, had to pick up an enemy weapon, got kills with it, ran out of ammo, had to pick up another enemy weapon, got some kills, and finally died.

    How to win big time against 12 year olds:


    • Cover
    • Ironsights
    • Silenced Weapons
    • Reloading Behind Cover
    • Shooting Behind Cover
    • Staying Behind Cover
    • Shoot and Scoot to New Cover
    • Cover
    • When moving around corners, crouch and engage irons
    • Use grenade to move up: throw, pop out from cover, fire
    • Lay down. You have no idea how easy it is to miss a "proned" player, especially for us BC2 Vets
    • Dynamic Switching to Sidearm while holding left mouse will cause a continuous stream of fire, you just have to release at the right time to take the second shot

    Hope this helps anyone having issues. Pretty much pretend this is real life, and use common sense, and you win.

    Silenced weapons are nice, but Rush is so linear it won't matter a ton. Theres only so many good spots to take cover, and where to expect people. All good tips that everyone should be practicing, cover is very important.
