    Adjusting my filters was the first thing I did when I got to battlelog, so that wasn't the problem for me.

    Glitching through the floor only around crate A at the first set of flags is caused by high ping? Because thats where most people had the issue at. And when I seen the issue, everyone on the whole server was getting stuck there. Yet no other place had a problem. I can't say I agree with this, also like highway I always sort servers by ping before I join.

    Yea, it has nothing to do with ping. I only play on servers where I get less than 60 ping and it's happened to me many times. I read somewhere that DICE believed it was because the servers were improperly setup, and it was overlying the old battlefield with all it's holes under\alongside the new one when the map "changed", so people were falling between them.

    The PDW's are by far the easiest weapons to use in the game. I've seen people with at least 3 k/d ratio using only them.

    I've seen no less than 1/3 of the people playing using the UMP-45 or PP-2000.

    They are the first universal kit weapons and pretty damned effective.

    Maybe the glitch through the ground thing is caused by the high ping of other players. I do know I once had to deliberately go through the ground by the really wide tree to kill a man by the middle barricade. The cheat little douche was still killing people from down there even though you couldn't see him. I guess he didn't know I would go to hell and back to cull the weak.

    I actually don't see a lot of people using the UMP or PP-2000 and no one using the shotguns....at least until I started using them to clean up the tunnels. Next round, I saw entire squads of people with shotguns. What I am saying is, if the top 3 or 4 players are doing really good and using weapon A, a lot of others will follow.

    I personally have seen a large variety of guns and configurations when I play. With the exception to lower rank people. And the AEK-741 seems to be really really unbalanced.

    Indeed I've noticed that if I'm in the top 3 others start to copy my weapon config or if I've got a good position i've got about 8 people jostling to join in.

    Well if its not caused by high ping then it caused by some think related to that server but i've only got the problem once and it was when i used the auto game join.

    Well ! I'd wait and see if the final release is going to actually use more resources though.
    Of course you are probably dieing to play the demo. I'm gonna trade my 8800 GTS I have in that signature for the 6570 2 gb card I put in my sons rig. Though the 8800 GTS is a better card for most games, it isn't supported. Then I will have 3 machines that will play it. The
    GTS will be better card for his set up any way he is running a P4.

    you sound just like my dad.

    but in my case. im the tech head. He always claims he needs some high end gear but all he does with his PC is just surf the net, listen to music and check his emails.

    Hell, a few weeks ago he even wanted to spend money on a Raptor HDD.

    He thinks the more dedicated ram a graphics card has will make his desktop look 'sharper'

    I was gonna give him my old X1800XT but that died for some strange reason. then i just bought him a passively cooled ATi 4350 and hes been silent ever since - pun intended

    I keep telling him that more dedicated ram doesnt make any difference just browsing desktop or surfin the internets, but he doesnt listen

    Earlier it sounded like you were talking as if you knew for a fact, now it sounds like you were just guessing?

    Lots of servers were experiencing the problem. highway had it, 2 friends at work did, and I'm betting numerous others did here as well. And I din't think I played with any of the people I had heard from about it during the time it was happening. So we all experienced it at different times on different servers. Would make me think the issue was pretty wide spread.

    I think all of the water is like that right now. Surprised me as well.

    It depends largely on the monitor resolution, the settings you apply and of course your CPU.
    So there is no answer like great, OK or bad. But it will definitely run well at lower resolutions and settings.

    Naw. Once you get use to the game's play style and know where to look for hostiles, it becomes a whole lot easier to kill and not die. In the last day I have gone from 285 points per minute to damn near 500 points per minute. My k/d went fro 0.96 to 1.335.

    I know were to expect fire from. I thought it was better guns, but I put down my current 4 favorite weapons and picked the default guns back up with no change. I was still just as lethal.

    The only times I get beaten badly are when most of my team sucks for reason or another, and went some rank 30+ douche is using the AEK assault rifle. That thing is complete OP.

    Yeah there are already hacks out there I've seen mention elsewhere. Probably not relatively widespread...

    there are hacked servers allready too, just went into a random server to play with level 13, as soon as I spawned i ran towards one of the targets to destroy it. all the whille i was running i was ranking up, i was like wtf... alt -f4.

    then picked another random server, started playing and happen to notice im back to private level 1.
    so i check my stats, and im at:

    level 45 -949,358 / 130,000 1,079,358 until rank up.

    lol, long ways to go for my next rank up, glad it's only beta.

    From my experience of about 8 games i've played on different servers only 1 server had this problem and it was the same parts of the map for every one becasue there was a group of like 8 people stuck in the same spot, I left that game found a new server 83ping and never got the problem for the 3 round i played on it.
