    Quoting from the article. In BF2 you needed an M95 to snipe noobs out of cockpits so you could jack their plane or chopper, wouldnt work on any other gun.

    I didnt really bother wasting my time sniping choppers in BC2 - I had no idea you could snipe team mates out of choppers.... either that or i was firing at the wrong place. but i generally hated the choppers in BC2, Ive never flown one as i deem it a waste of time as they go down too easily. and the passenger gun is restricted to a 3 round burst which limits the overall damage you can do while in a chopper. and both those things annoy the fuck out of me so i couldnt give a shit. give me a quadbike or a jeep so i can get to the frontline as soon as possible and im happy.


    so theyve removed the restriction and any gun can fire through glass so it was only fair that all the weapons can kill pilots while their in the cockpit.

    -----

    the only big change is that we spawn in choppers or jets now - or at least that was the case for the beta.

    Yeah I knew you could do it in Bc2 though I was never successful. Then again I only really played Recon for any amount of time in the week before the beta. :laugh:



    Where that Unthanks button? :p

    New Battlefield Blog Post: Battleblog #13: Multiplayer map reveal, from the streets of Paris to the outskirts of Tehran

    zh1nt0 on BF3 Map design...

    ==================================================

    twitter.com/zh1nt0: "Going to go through ea uk forums with @IlCarpentero later today. It's important and necessary. #BF3"

    ==================================================

    CVG - DICE Has "a massive Battlefield 3 DLC plan"

    "We've completely restructured our studio around it""

    DICE has hinted at an ambitious year-round DLC plan for Battlefield 3

    Asked if the company intends to offer the same level of ongoing support for Battlefield 3 players as rival series Call of Duty does, creative director Lars Gustavsson told MCV the developer has "completely restructured" the studio around its plans for add-on content for the upcoming FPS.

    "Nowadays, we have operations team who looks at the title when it starts getting closer to launch (or long before) with potential downloadable content and so on, to really have a plan," he said.

    "Otherwise you're quite likely to start slipping. If you're focusing just before release on what you're going to ship post-launch, then I think you have problems.

    "So, yes there is a massive plan in place."

    Our own Jake Denton is of the opinion that the DLC model is getting out of hand. Let us know what you think.


    Watch in HD No comments yet, be the first!
    Battlefield 3 producer Patrick Liu said earlier this week he thinks EA's franchise has the edge on Call of Duty, although he admitted he's just pleased his game's being bracketed in the same league as the current FPS genre king.

    Yesterday EA released a new Battlefield 3 trailer focusing on the shooter's destruction gameplay.

    I think this is a different version than the previously posted video of Operation Firestorm. Same DICE guy narrating, though (Aleksander Grondal).

    How to change Origin ID :

    Download Scrabble Free for iOS and then log in with your Origin account. Once you've logged in go to settings (the little gear in the bottom left corner) and then click on "Edit Account" and there you go. You can change your username to something you are more comfortable with. Same for Android.

    Scrabble Free

    (not tested myself)

    It's fake...I think...

    Ah I wasn't a huge BF2 fan, so didn't play much. But in BC2 I shot a pilot out of the transport chopper on Heavy Metal, got a 500+ bonus, so he was way out there on distance. Point blank with a Sniper Rifle in a friendly Chopper on HC you should have easily been able to drop them out of the chopper. But it seems you didn't go in choppers much in BC2, they definitely don't have 3 round bursts, I believe it's 5, which was plenty enough to tear anything but tanks apart. The choppers were fine, if you were a bad pilot, you were getting traced and going down, but a good pilot good dominate with a good nose gunner, even with a ton of people trying to trace them.

    I like that strategy. It makes it feel more like a real war, having city sections and open areas of a map, makes it feel large.

    Doubt that works. All thats going to do is change your display name when you play Scrabble on your phone. Each time you make a "Persona" for an EA game, it's what it displays when you play that game (not sure why BF3 isn't doing this), and it adds it to your persona list. Buit your EA master account will still hold it's main name. Heck, switching personas didn't even work before or during Origin. My EA master account has been locked as Grevenilvec for 2 years, and every few months I tried changing it to 1Kurgan1 that was one of my other persona's. But it wouldn't let me, even though I selected it and said for it to change.

    I was a huge BF2 fan. I was also prefered to be the pilot 99% of the time instead of the passenger/gunner. so i will be resuming my duties as such.

    I dont trust anyone else in the pilot seat but myself and one other friend of mine.

    Im extremely happy they buffed up the points you get for supporting your team. I spent hours in wake island and other maps flying soldiers to the frontline and pulling them out when they were being overrun and i hardly got any points for doing it unless one of the gunners on the blackhawk actually managed to kill something. that gun was extremely weak vs infantry. but they buffed it with the 1.51 patch i think. Not that it matters as i dont play BF2 anymore.

    But im not there for a good K/D ratio. I play for fun.

    in the beta, your first soldier - and probably retail, is made automatically and is given your origin name. but there was a soldiers option(disabled) in battlelog (as bc2 had in game) that allowed you to create another soldier. I read that you would be able to give them the name you want. of course i have no idea where, but i am confident that is the case. i saw the soldiers menu myself but again, disabled.

    but if scrabble works woo hoo :)

    Destructiod.com - The newly revamped co-op mode of Battlefield 3

    4:45 PM on 10.13.2011 | Casey Baker

    Fans of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 clamored for a cooperative mode for months after the game released, and when it finally came in the form of "Onslaught Mode," many were disappointed at its lackluster AI and generally tacked-on design.

    Battlefield 3's new co-op mode seems poised to change all of this, with dedicated co-op missions that take you and a buddy through a fully fleshed out map with enemies that react in a challenging and intelligent way.

    During EA's Final Hours event, I paired up with another game journalist in a mission called "Hit and Run," where we began in a darkened office complex at night and were instructed to quickly put claymore mines down in preparation for an imminent breach.

    The enemies breached from all sides, their flashlights blinding us as they came in through windows and battered-down doors. I quickly hunkered down under a desk while my teammate uttered a few words of surprise as he was taken down in the other room. I realized I would have to be quick if we were ever going to get past the first part of the mission, so I tossed a couple of grenades, stepped out of cover for a moment to take down who was left, and then ran to the darkened room, where my downed teammate was still engaged in an intense gun fight with a guy shining his flashlight at him. Fortunately, my teammate took him down and I ran over and helped him up.

    This scenario played out many times over the next parts of the mission (usually I was the one down while my teammate dove from cover to help me, as I was often a little too gung-ho to get into the action.) Even though we had set the gameplay to "Easy" mode, the enemies provided a serious challenge and we had to communicate frequently to call out where enemies were taking us down from or to coordinate attacks where one of us would distract the enemy AI and the other would flank them.

    At one point in the mission, we even had to separate with one of us taking the floor below and the other taking the floor above. Through consecutive playthroughs we noticed that the gameplay would even change up at this part a bit, so that one of us was always immediately attacked as we breached a door while the other had a moment to breathe before running into the room.

    Most of all, this mode was actually really exciting. It was filled with tense moments and with a good co-op buddy it provided a challenging and fun scenario that required serious strategy and good communication. We played through the map at least six times before we managed to beat it, though in one of those instances we had to restart the game because it stopped bringing us to any new checkpoints when we were ready to breach a door. Even with this potentially game-breaking glitch (which we made sure the reps were well aware of), we didn't really mind as it gave us an excuse to play through the beginning again and figure out what new way we could approach the earlier intense firefights. Granted, even our build of the game was still not the finished product, so our experience of the glitch is probably (hopefully) already being dealt with before release.

    The mission ended with an exciting little portion where I commandeered a jeep and drove it through a parking garage with the enemy surrounding us as my partner did his best to take potshots from the window. I completely controlled the driving, and it gave me a moment of feeling like a total Die Hard badass as I avoided insane enemies shooting machine guns from their cars and even launching rockets at our vehicle as we swerved and veered out of the garage.

    If this mission was anything to go by, the other five co-op missions included in Battlefield 3 should be an awesome addition to the normal multiplayer modes with a lot of replayability and tense moments of intense combat. With a good buddy at your side, spouting one-liners and dropping fools will make you feel like a true action/buddy cop movie badass.

    Just read this thread.

    Yeah, that's another one to add. Not sure why someone would go through all that though.

    Yep, I use to do it when I played WoW and didn't want to pay for a Authenticator. They are free for Smart Phones so I just emulated an Android and got a free one for that. I'll try and tinker with it after work and post up a guide. But I'm not sure if I will change my name quite yet, I might try and squeeze a free game out of EA asking them to change my name, then change it after they tell me they can't :p

    The way this thread is going it is going to have half the
    posts that the BFBC2 thread has before the game is even
    released. It better be as epic as everyone is hoping.

    Are you sure you can change that ORIGIN MAIN ID ? I think it just changes your man identity which you can also do in your EA profile page.
    I get "This game isnt available in your region" haha

    The thing they did with the ability to spawn in a jet is fkn genius. No more zillion noobz on airfields.

    it's not a pre-order like at a brick and mortar store, online the funds are taken immediately. so whenever you bought it the funds were taken, they have to have already been taken before you begin the pre-load.
