    What about me. I put up with your BS more than anyone. You could let me get something before you blow the PC up.

    Or they buy a crap load of the game when they were $50 and came with a free copy of Dead Space 2. Transfer a $10 discount to Dead Space 2 being sold for $30 is a $20 net profit.

    I am not defending this site as I don't know them, but I am saying you can do this legit and still earn money.

    Not sure if this is a deal, but they can be trusted: http://www.greenmangaming.com/games/shooter/battlefield-3-limited-edition/

    Personally I woulda used "Cap That Flag" but I support anything that gets people thinking about Playing The Fucking Objective. Be advised: This is not COD!

    Will watch that one later for sure...

    Anybody got links to good "instructional" videos? E.g. ones that actually taught you things(s) you didn't already know about the game and/or strategies therein and not just some dude giving a play-by-play of a round?

    Uh thanks but I think I know how to play FPS's. Deploying the EOD bot or properly ranging a mortar strike in BF3 etc etc etc not so much yet.

    Deploying the EOD bot: Like the MAV (Micro Air Vehicle), there are three important things to keep in mind.

    1. Your character is exposed and unprotected while in use. If you have squad mates have 1 stay behind with you for protection or ensure you are in a well hidden area. If you are like me and use the MAV as Recon for quick intel gather for your squad, then quickly is the key. I spot a few people as my squad moves up. Once they control an area, I shut the MAV down and move in with them.

    2. EOD and MAV can only be deploy on a level, unobstructed surface. This means no hills, no bushes, no tessellated surfaces. It does seem to work if the surface is tilted and flat. The best way to spot where you can use it is to watch the color of the bot outline. If you can use it the color will change from yellow to green. Once it is green, right mouse click to deploy.

    3. You only get one, but you can turn it off. While you are controlling the EOD or MAV, you can simply press "E" to turn off the remote control and move around. This does not destroy either. I am not sure if the MAV will simply float to the ground as I always took time to land it out of sight before turning it off. I am not sure if you keep the same bot if you are kill and respawn (Haru can answer this I believe). This should be noted as you can deploy the bot, move into a better hiding location such as a bush or area you couldn't deploy the bots, then return to controlling them with LMouse with the remote out.


    Mortar use: This seems to be straight forward. Like the bots it needs to be deployed on a flat surface. Once out, your map will auto expand. You can then use the movement keys to move around the map with your target sight. As red markers appear, you simply fire with LMouse to laugh a volley. I have not personally used them, but this is the information given from 3 different sources at the Nvidia LAN thingy. The explosion is big, but slow with long reloads. Primary use would be dispersing clusters of people hiding in one spot (aka crowd control) on defense, and offensively used to take out stationary targets and clear the way from the rest of your forward moving squad.

    SOFLAM: I have no idea, but I have a niggling feeling it is just the Mortar strike from Bad Company complete with binoculars. I believe it will use the red dot as a laser targeting system which means using it on people will likely give your position away. This is a guess though.

    P.S. The Platoon has a 99 man limit, so we may need multiple platoons for everyone. Source

    I begrudgingly admit that looks pretty great for a six year old console.

    Thanks TLM though the hard part about "just talking to you guys" is I can't ask a question about a feature or strategy that I do not yet know exists...

    So asked for videos and such in the hopes I'd find a few that provided some "oh hey I didn't know you could do that" moments.

    Yeah the usual for this acronym is "Passed The F out".

    This one is just a Battlefield thing. And an important one! :)

    today I played RO2 (REd ORchesta 2) with just 4 guys... Best experience in recent times... because:

    No way you are going to run and gun.
    You are going to listen and watch carefully.
    You start to begin being a psychologist trying to anticipate your enemies behavior.
    YOU SWEAT AND GET PARANOID

    PRICELESS compared to "battles"....

    #1 Battlefield series has never been about 'run and gun' gameplay (Try CoD)

    #2 you can listen and watch but a Bush Wookie (sniper) might getcha.

    #3 you can have upto 64 players per server/map - Unless your playing squad death match or 1v1 against someone. anticipating an enemys behaviour is difficult. Everyone in the team plays and thinks differently. Some will run to checkpoint A while some will go to checkpoint B and some bush wookies will just head for the nearest bush.

    Again, CoDs 8vs8 is perfect so you can get more intimate with who youre playing against.

    #4 I play for fun, so I dont take the game so seriously or literally. which means i dont get paranoid. and i dont sweat over it.

    I just do what i do and do it the best way i can do, because at the end of the day. Im enjoying myself

    Yes, enjoy, all great and cool mate! but BF is still a macho-schwarzenegger game, you can't deny that! less then CunD but still... the people that get all the medals and points and rule and all the bullshit (total bullshit imho) are those that constantly walk around like aliens. no real soldier does that. kills the atmosfere for me.

    it's just... those with beter mouse-control and those with better weaponery do not need to think, just learn the map and kill non stop hopping around like fucking trained uber-tomcruise-scientologists.

    I like it slow, like *** :) I like BF series because of the maps, graphics, NOT the gameplay. honestly.

    and don't forget parachuting from buildings... please come on! I don't even know the keystroke for that (never did it in BF2, BC or BF3), I would feel ashamed hahaha


    If only the damn game would be launched so i could play instead of pestering around hehe
