    I had people locking on, however I stayed EXTREMELY low to the group, and in many cases was able to roadkill people on the chopper, with minimal loss of control. I still don't think many ground soldiers take the lock on launcher, as they have to worry about vehicles too!

    I think that implementing some aspects of CoD is a good idea because at it's core it is a good game, however over the past 4 odd years it hasn't evolved like other games have.

    PlanetBattlefield - Humorous Battlefield 3 GameStop TV Spot

    Monday, 17 October, 2011 at 19:34 PST | ^Scott^ | Print News
    An amusing Battlefield 3 TV spot created by GameStop was posted on YouTube a couple weeks ago. The ad, noticed by teslasmash from reddit, shows various Battlefield 3 soldiers shooting weapons from the Physical Warfare Pack. The Physical Warfare Pack is of course one of the pre-order bonuses if you order from GameStop as well as EA Origin, GAME (UK) and GameStation (UK). The pack is a time based exclusive and DICE have said it will be free for all later on this year.

    kotaktu.com - How Will Battlefield 3 Be Remembered?

    By Mark Serrels on October 17, 2011 at 2:00 PM

    In a perfect storm of hype, timing and technology, the momentum behind Battlefield 3 has been staggering. As it accelerates towards its release October 27, we caught up with the game’s Creative Director Lars Gustavsson to discuss the game’s development, his influences, and what history will make of Battlefield 3.

    While there are, of course, hordes of gamers lining up to pre-order Modern Warfare 3, it appears as though there is a sea change in our midst – almost as if the culmination of smart brand protection, combined with a series of dazzling trailers has set fans of core shooters alight with hype. Amongst core shooter fans, Battlefield 3 is arguably the most anticipated game of the year.

    Gustavsson thinks the quality of the game itself may have something to do with it!

    “We’re bringing something fresh to a market which, to be honest, has gone a bit stale recently,” says Gustavsson. “There are so many shooters out there and they all come from the same recipe.

    “I play all shooters out there to stay up to date, but I really like Battlefield, because I can of the sheer variety. I often get this religious feeling when I look at some of the larger scale levels, just feeling amazed that we somehow managed to accomplish this!

    Years of development experience, with the same core team, has enabled DICE to focus their efforts on creating the best Battlefield product possible. In that respect, Gustavsson believes that the force sweeping gamers towards the Battlefield 3 juggernaut is more than hype – it’s a gut response to what he believes is a quality product across the board.

    “Where does our optimism come from?” He asks. “I would say it’s simply our experience in making the Battlefield games. We have an amazing engine. To look at the package of Battlefield, there’s so much to it.

    “You have everything to small team deathmatch, to the full journey through a single player, to squad deathmatch – there’s a full, wide palette of possibilities. This time it feels like we’ve really stretched ourselves, and listened to feedback from the community.

    “Our optimism is similar to how we felt about Battlefield 1942 when that was in development,” he continues. “When we’re playing in the office, we know it’s a really rock solid game. This time round we’ve done so much and improved so much. We’ve put so much into it.”

    The FPS genre is, in a sense, a continual exchange of ideas – where innovations are constantly being shared, implemented and improved upon with subsequent releases. Battlefield has innovated within this space before, but it has also borrowed from the best – we wondered in Lars could think of any specific influences that affected the development of Battlefield 3.

    “I’m not sure if I should pin point one,” he begins, reluctantly. “Well, Conquest was a game I was definitely inspired by – Day of Defeat, with its flag system is another. And the medic in Battlefield 2 was definitely inspired by Enemy Territory: Quake Wars’ medic system.

    “That’s the beauty of the games industry. You might hear rumours of developers going after each other but for the most part it’s a friendly environment. And you borrow freely – it’s the team that executes the feature best that will be remembered.”

    That word: ‘remembered’. In the world of PC gaming in particular, it’s one thing to shift millions of units, it’s another create and maintain the kind of community that Counter Strike: Source, Team Fortress 2 and Call of Duty 4 currently have. You get the impression that’s precisely what DICE are shooting for with Battlefield 3.

    “Really I want our game to be remembered for giving gamers a fresh take on the shooter,” claims Gustavsson. “Hopefully Battlefield 3 feels like it took the first person shooter to the next level and made the competition look a bit old and stale.”

    I've played the beta and have a good impression towards Caspian Border, it kept the spirit of true conquest. Whereas in Metro I had flashbacks of CoD especially when I quickly zoomed through my reflex scope to shoot but other than that it was still a good experience as Rush is also quite different from CoD's gameplay and player spawn rotation, It is awesome to see your whole squad or two taking cover behind corridor entrances and both teams showering each other with bullets within that space, it was complete mayhem imo especially when you see stray rockets blow up parts of the wall to create entrances.

    I don't see how, if you rip down a road then turn a corner while remaining below the treeline, they can't lock on once you pass that corner, as they can't visually see you anymore. They can't lock on through trees, if you don't move fast enough I could see people doing it, or if you raise above the treeline too much, or come down the freeway on Caspian where there is no cover on the sides of the roads. But notice almost all of their flying was around the Forest flag.

    I want to learn how to fly the chopper like that!! When i flew it, it felt slow and cumbersome. Maybe Freedom can make a training video. I would hazard a guess that they were using flight sticks?

    Looking at the comments in the vid he mentions letting go of "w" quickly...etc. Seems like kb/m. Impressive flying.

    Love the copter! Reminds me of my Novalogic helo days! Low flight and surprise is key!

    A shame that the biggest map of the game is rather small. :p

    The best thing about the choppers is getting to shoot them down with a tank. :) I love it when some muppet swoops down to line you up with some rockets and you hit him square in the windscreen with a round!! It cracks me up everytime. I don't get in the tanks that often but when I do it always seems so easy to hit a chopper with the main gun. Maybe my trigonometry is good. Lol :pimp:

    Yeah I got pretty good at it in BC2, especially in 'Nam, though I am going to have to get used to the speed and arc (or lack thereof) of the shells on these tanks now...

    Well I seem to be the like the only people who ordered a physical that is kinda freaking out that I won't get it "soon enough" and am thinking about canceling for a download order...

    I guess I point it out as I'm kind of surprised. And I'm not just referring to people here. Though come to think of it I should check the EA UK forum.

    Yeah, chopper flying isn't going to get as much of a benefit out of joystick as Jets will.

    I used to fly like that in BC2 but my gunner would always rage-bail.

    I just felt like I had no power to work with, I would go into a dive and it would take ages and ages to pull back out of it.

    Agreed. The BF3 Clubhouse without its founder just isn't the same, it's hollow and incomplete. It's like Jenna Haze without a huge red dildo, or Mia Farrow without the Maharishi buried deep in her.

    I would sig this but I may get banned like mail man.

    Yea I know mailman is rough around the edges but he means no harm. I have to agree some of Q's news posts are not really informative or on point. Even some of the mods have noticed this as well.

    LOL and how did he go about doing that, exactly?

    Yeah, Qubit has turned out to be...an interesting choice. I'll leave it at that.
