    Without others spotting you it can be said that it is easier to move around the map without being seen.

    What the hell? I got kicked from the Techpowerup Platoon. Don't know why.

    Was it something I said? While being silent??

    I saw a "platoon " coming in and they died within a split of a second, then everyone started crawling the rest of the game.

    I found this the other day if you place 3 c4 on the back of the Abrams or the side of the Bt-90 (good luck with that, if Crazy is in it.. damn took me 5 min the other night to blow him up)They seem the weakest points to me,If you go from the side on them the gunner will get you every time.

    Also today I was in a rush server and using the AA tanks to take out Aircraft...Got the guys flying peed off, that one of em asked me "Do you enjoy taking us out or something ,the game is to go for the m-coms" I replied...it is a Anti Aircraft tank right ?:roll::roll::roll::roll:

    No, that info is now wrong. New info is in the OP(sry, cannot remeber offhand)


    What. Did somebody hear something?

    List is in the OP, google spreadsheet. Add you name there, re-apply. Was an effort to keep TPU'ers only on the platoon ranks, so we can actually compare stats with playing TPU members, and not members that are playing with other clans, or what-have-you.

    Not too much of a surprise, just to finish the game up. What matters the most is they got it on the engine and framework they had planned on PC, which would have been work they did at the beginning.

    I personally like Normal for the things you hate. If I want real war, I will sign up as a bullet catcher in the Army. BF has always been a decent mix of realism and "fakeism". Defibs, Health Packs, and Ammo Box's are just too unreal.

    Spotting simulates being there. Think of it like playing on TS with people vs being in the same room as people. On TS it's hard to know exactly how to describe something, "to your left, down that alley". But at that moment they might be facing a different direction then you think, and "that alley" isn't the best description. Where as being in the same room, they can look right at your screen, see what you see, kind of like being in war together. Spotting allows you to say "look down that alley, at the guy I spotted". Now "that alley" + the guy you spotted is good enough info for your Squad members to make a judgement on their next move. It's all about teamwork, and allowing people to communicate things that aren't easily said when you aren't side by side. And spotting helps so much when your squad isn't in voice chat, typing is far too slow, so it's your only way to convey directions to people you don't know.

    I can see how 3rd person cameras bother you, not much I can say there except it's not mean to be completely realistic. It bothers me not having that view, but if I was after complete realism, I would play with it off as you do. Friendly Fire though, this just isn't real war, it doesn't work like real war. In real war, you work as a team, you support your fellow soldiers. In BF, your running to the jet, some asshole grabs it, you headshot him out. I see TKing used more to get vehicles you want than anything else. So many times I'm running to a tank and I just get gunned down then watch the guy hop in it and take off. FF On is suppose to make you be careful, but it just seems up in the thick of the shit it doesn't matter as much as it does in your base where the real TKing happens.

    Personally though, in BF3 I don't feel a huge difference between Core and HC. I didn't like HC because it had minimap off and crap, but if I land on an HC server with Assists on, thats fine by me, I've had that happen before and not even realized it till someone gets TK'ed next to me.

    Meh, since HC promotes camping from a harsher damage model, bullets still ping the map with your nice red triangle that says I want a mortar shell shoved where the sun doesn't shine.

    **EDIT**
    Which brings me to a point. The Suppressor is easily the best weapon attachment. Right after I attached that to my M60, it just became beast. I would like the bigger clips, but when people come around the corner and have no idea I am there, it's much more advantageous for me. And it hides you from mortars.

    Done and done.

    The thing is, I'm not particularly livid that a company will say something in order to garner support or consumer loyalty, and then do something completely different behind closed doors in order to meet pragmatic realities. Corporations aren't alone in speaking of things as they wish them to be believed, and not as they actually are. That sort of lie has passed through all of our lips.

    My only issue with this 'revelation' arises when they now don't allocate the freed resources to back up their original claims. I know personally the terrors of Game Dev Crunch Time and I'm sure DICE staff are relatively exhausted. After a well deserved break however, it is hoped that they will get on with the business of properly supporting their creation as they intended... and I'm not talking about server patches. I'm talking about a working, in-game VOIP system that uses their excellent sound technology to dampen the RATHER LOUD ambient noise BF3 battles produce automatically when people transmit in order to convey squad voices into the ears of players in a way that's still immersive. I'm talking about properly implementing Joystick, Throttle, Knob and Slider support. I'm talking about tweaking whatever Vault Over Stuff parameters they need to in order to have a soldier actually vault through a window they just destroyed the glass of, instead of just bunny hopping infront of it with the Vault animation being worthless begging to be shot during a high intensity Rush game.

    Yes, I am bitter. I totally had that MCOM with only 16 tickets left and that window RUINED IT DAMMIT!
