    The Karkand pack is fantastic. Total mayhem. Destruction at its best. I have no doubts now that this is the best looking game I ever played. Bye Crysis 1. Got to get used to the maps though.

    But I would like to add something. On everything maxed out with my rig - the i5 is at 4.2 - I had stutters and even freezes with 4MSAA on larger maps and many players. I know, 1280 MB VRAM is not enough but on single player it worked like a charm. So I was doing ultra and FXAA - post AA - on high, everything great.

    Now get this. I just picked up today another pair of 2GB memory sticks - dirt cheap nowadays so why not? I have now 4x2GB in the machine and magic happened! Load times are way way faster and no more freezes! I cranked up the MSAA and it works no freezes, stutters, just smooth lower FPS here and there. So I would definitely recommend to anybody to increase the RAM, 4GB is not enough for this game, it needs more!

    The maps look great and stupid people are already using "its new to us" as an excuse to suck at the game.

    Honestly if you have not played BF2 in a long while like me, it will take a little getting use to as the maps have been seriously updated. You can do into a lot of buildings, plenty of new angles to hit targets, but the general layout is the same. In short, if you have EVER played BF2, I will not accept "this is a new map to us" as an excuse why you drove off without me while I was in a 3 on 1 gun fight.

    And Origin login server just went down for me.

    WoW, this game rocks on a HD6870 :D all high settings with 2xMSAA an 4xAF getting at least 60-70fps constantly. Also loving the new maps :D

    How much MSAA can a 6870 handle tho 4x, 8x?

    There was an Engineer on-board repairing from side seat.

    Unless 3 rockets hit directly at the same time, they were torching the shit out of it to stay alive.

    See this all the time.

    BUT PC's do have some nasty hacks

    They are unlocked threw Assignments. The weapons have certain assignments of-course.

    To unlock the FAMAS-
    10- Revives
    10- Heals

    Then its automatically added your assault kit, and the Next assignment for the next assault weapon is unlocked so you can complete it and get the next weapon.

    Seriously, it's a game. Deal with it. People taking this crap too seriously, no wonder TPU's BF3 server is never full.

    TPU server is never full because it is never full. If no one is on it, it does not appear in search results. If we wanted to keep it populated, several of us, say 3 or 4 need to stay on the server even when they are not playing. That is the only way it will get full.

    One night we had at least 12 people in TS and could have started the server up, but no one cared.

    And I do take my gaming seriously because it is suppose to be fun and entertaining. I don't mind losing as long as we put up a fight. We tard babies are running around tking and not fighting, I don't understand why they are playing. Why would you go out of your way to get in a round of BF3 if you are not going to play the fucking game.

    Ah, I thought you were just demeaning people with lesser skill. I understand, I have no idea why these type of players you describe even exist. All I know is, if I see several people standing around the base, I leave the server.

    I've been back into BF3 more in the last week anyway and with these new maps Skyrim will definitely be taking a back seat as opposed to the other way around.

    The bad thing is, people who are not reading about what's going on will start changing passwords, accounts and so on. A total mess.

    Yeah. But be honest. When you release a highly anticipated game and you let people download/install software that says Beta you know are f-ing with those people.The battlelog is ok but i would rather have the old fashioned way.
