    Pretty decent for a trailer I guess. What's your curfew at your mom's place? :eek:

    battlefieldo.com - NVIDIA LAN 6 PODCAST RECAP + VIDEO


    Today we hosted our first real podcast with [20ID]Daskro + Friends and DCRUColin. Both of these guys are at the Nvidia Geforce LAN 6 this weekend where Battlefield 3 is playable with 5 maps, Operation Firestorm, Grand Bazaar, Damavand Peaks, Operation Metro and Caspian Border. The podcast lasted around an hour and give some amazing insights to what we can expect to see in under two weeks for the Final release of Battlefield 3. Here are the key points.

    Hit Registration Improved

    The server at the Nvidia LAN was setup in Los Angeles, 5 hours away from the event. The hit registration and net code have been fixed from the beta. Now you will be able to know exactly when and where you are getting shot from rather then falling and thinking you got “one shotted” like in the Open Beta.

    Tons of Vehicles

    Operation Firestorm (The desert Oil field map) is much larger then Caspian Border. Each team gets 6 Main Battle Tanks at start + the ones from spawn points. This map has diversity of two story factory buildings with 500m or more between control points on conquest mode. This map is vehicle focus rather then infantry. We personally can’t wait to roll with our friends in a 6 M1-Abrams deep armor column.

    Mini / Full map is back

    The full blown mini-map is back like the original battlefield, when you open up you can see your teammates as well as spotted enemies

    Mortar for kicking Ass

    Many have wondered what the Mortar unlock would be like. When you mount it, the minimap appears with a crosshair of where to drop your mortar round down on. This is a sign that DICE will probably implement more artillery items in the future.

    3D Spotting is Tweaked

    Now the 3D Spotting works properly. You will lose track of your enemies when they got out of view be it in a bush or around a corner.

    Manage your Squad

    Squad Management is back with up to 8 Squads. In this build the commorose wasn’t enabled so you were forced to use Q (spotting key) to place squad orders. Our guess is once commorose is implemented, a squad order system much like battlefield 2 will be brought back.

    If you hated the Beta, all has changed

    From what we’ve heard from everyone at the NVIDIA LAN event, this build is very polished and has made those with doubts really quite excited for Battlefield 3. It really looks like this game is the true sequel we are waiting for. Thanks to DICE for working so hard on this to get it in our hands in just under 2 weeks. We will be sure to keep you posted if we learn any more details on teh conquest version of Damavand Peaks. We know you are all eager to hear about that base jumping segment!

    Indeed. House. I started to take a little patriotic offense at BumbleBee's comment about incest and Kraft Singles sandwiches but then I saw the picture of Trip's "trailer". :laugh:

    Though my uncle lives in one on the beach in Florida on the Gulf side. In other words, we do have some that a bit nicer than the stereotype...

    Not as nice as Trips tho. Why, may I ask, is that considered a "trailer" in the first place? Nice yard, old tree and everything. That is way nicer than my (not cheap) present apartment and 'hood, let me tell you. At least on the outside.

    Battlefieldo.com - GRAPHICS DISCUSSION WITH REPI REVEALS INGAME-CONSOLE

    It looks like DICE brought back the famous Ingame-Console we all have missed since we played Battlefield 2. On yesterday’s Battlefield 3 Presentation with DICE Dev Johan “Repi” Andersson it was revealed that Battlefield 3 will indeed feature a full Ingame Console with some useful commands that help you analzye the Game, like a Performance Graph that shows you the FPS / CPU and GPU usage. He also gave out a lot of Details on the Frostbite 2 Engine and how stuff works out, it’s very technical, but still very interesting. The Presentation is split into three parts, we posted them for you below. So make sure you watch it, as we do – right now!

    Ok wow, EA support told me that my EA Master ID of iancomings1 does not include one of the following:

    Your EA ID contains your first and last name.
    Your EA ID contains a phone number.
    Your EA ID contains a social security number or other government issued ID.

    And is therefore not eligible for a name change.

    WTF? are they blind? My effin name is IAN COMINGS!!!!!!
    what part of iancomings1 does not include my FIRST and LAST name??? Fuck EA!!! Fucking Geriatric Morons!!!

    The Windows tool said my choice ( Death_Incarnate) was already taken.

    My alternate names I would go with are:

    Death_Incorporated
    Death_Inc
    Associated_Death
    Death_By_Association

    then just choose a different Master ID then. None of the original names i had in BF2 or BC2 were available so I went ahead and choose an entirely different one. You cant ask them to give it to you if someone already has that name registered.

    then get creative and come up with a more unique name.

    I was gonna call myself 'PandaBearOnRoids' or 'Panda_On_Steriods' even. but i just stuck with what i made last night before i hit the sack and called myself SatanicPandaBear.

    I should come up with a more serious name really....but like i said. all my first choice names were already taken so I just got on with it.

    Hell, I was even gonna call myself 'Matt Damon' for a laugh. I Actually did have a character called Matt Damon, but he was a MMOrpg character.

    I could still change my name with the tool so I'll just keep thinking until i come up with something that I like and see if i get it.

    Well, after and during work my creativity is shot. I am open to suggestions for Names though. I don't care what my name is as long as TPUers can ID me here and in game and on TS.

    Again to ALL, I am open to suggestions!!!

    I've decided to pre-order yesterday,when I checked on my origin account,it says release date 28.10.,does that mean that in UK it will be released 3 days later??
    also,I should be fine with (almost)max graphics with my current setup,what do you think guys?Im really not willing to spend on any upgrade at this time at all..

    EDIT: sorry it says release date 28.10. not in my account,but on the game page in the origin store..

    How about TwinkleToes ^_^


    If you guys can come up with 10 suggestions, I will put them in a hat and pull out 3 then repeat and pull out 1 and go with that. But it would need to be a name that you all can associate with me. For those not aware, my BC2 name was Death_Incarnate.
