    If they fix battlelog to handle the squad assignments and its actually works then all will be fine. Sure battlelog more or less sucks balls but but if you really have friends to play with they will most certainly be a friend in battlelog. I think the system for managing friends and parties is pretty decent. Even if battlelog is for the most part completely fucking gay.

    I didnt take you for the "QQ I'm canceling" sort..... crazyeyes maybe.


    Back to the UMP45. I agree its super OP and not in the sense that it has an edge over other guns but it stands head and shoulders above everything else.

    For the PC, MW2 sold just over 700k units. That came with the controversy of no dedicates servers. BackOps did do better with just over 1mill units sold. But there was no real controversy to speak of. If those numbers are accurate it will be interesting to note how this game does on the PC? With all the controversy over lack of squad selection in game, battlelog itself, client side hit detection, missing in game ping, etc.

    There is a lot of boo hooing going on over a beta. A lot more then I expected from a tech community.

    Honestly some things in Battlelog I really, REALLY like. Its just the fact I have to launch the game from it and lack of squad control I have the issue with.

    If they create an in game browser that connects to battlelog with in the bf3.exe (the game) then battlelog will be fine. Let's hope they do... EA isn't one to let some other form of media destribute there games.. I don't see them using a non in house browser.. sure for the beta.. but not the game itself.

    I get the impression that the controversy over being able to create in game squads is as bad as dedicated servers for MW2. Just look at this poll over on the EAUK forms. I've never seen that may people vote for a feature before. Let alone seen so many participate in voting over there.

    all of you hating on the UMP, the A-91 kicks its ass. easily. high fire rate and no recoil, I have accidentally killed so many people because they were running behind the guy I was shooting at and got hit with stray bullets after the first body fell.

    The PP2000 fired too slow for my liking, so I switched the UMP once I got it. IMO the UMP is much better, even with the silencer. I was able to counter snipers with it, even though it is an SMG / PDW.

    They are jerking us off imo. Console community were in tears that EA/DICE decided to make a PC port for them and they raged.

    I dont think consoles need to use battlelog at all

    You guys don't think they will put an in game browser in the game? I think they will.. It's to simple of a process to build just a basic browser. All it would need to do is go to the battlelog page and that's it.

    EDIT: I think the whole using different browsers is just to test for say browsers in phones and such. They already said you'll be able to change some stuff from your phone in the battlelog.

    add a web browser inside the game for battlelog.

    EDIT: I wasn't apart of the alpha testing, but i heard from others that they didn't use battlelog to access the game.. Did i hear wrong? I don't think it's that big of a change to add an ingame webbrowser to the final build.

    You mean in game server browser, in game menu setup, and all that jazz from inside the game? Then have an option to click on battlelog which takes you to the web browser?

    On the flip side of the coin they could have added all those features to Origin. Since we need it to run BF3 anyway and just drop the browser concept altogether. Hate to see the mem usage for that though.

    But you shouldn't need that many programs to run one game.

    Nice i like your thinking.. They could use origins it's more less the same as steam which has a built in web browser inside the steam app. Those pages of content are just web pages. Why would EA rely on a web browser that wasn't theres.. that could nerf our game with an update.. and the way firefox is going hell we will be at version 100 in no time..lol All the browser needs to do is show the battlelog pages and nothing else. Don't give the user the ablitiy to go anywhere else.. :toast: but it would seem part of the game... Most people don't know that those are web pages inside of steam.

    Yeah Origin seems pretty useless as it stands today outside of an EA marketplace.

    Has anyone tried just placing a shortcut from BF3.exe to the desktop and opening the game that way?
