    You mean be a fan?

    Oh and when I buy Battlefield 3, should I buy used as it is cheaper, but won't the CD Key be used already? Why are they selling used Battlefield 3 on eBay if they already used the CD Key?

    Some I found are "used" and some are "like new". So you would need a CD Key in order to play online right? Without it, you could only play regular campaign right?

    Thanks

    Not even. You cannot register an already activated key on Origin.

    Origin is required for both single-player, and multiplayer.

    Buying a "used" copy = you getting ripped off, as the key is locked to the account it was activated on, with no ability to transfer.

    Buy new, and not off ebay. There are many "discount" game retailers that bulk-buy titles and sell for a small profit.

    Man I am having a bad BF3 week. Every server I join I go like 0-3 or 1-5 before I get pissed and quit. I know I shouldn't care about my KDR so much but dayum. I'm a better player than that. :(

    Meh I have so many other games I mean to spend some time again with anyway. Like the latest version of Mechwarrior: Living Legends.

    Yeah I have weeks like that too and it is frustrating especially if you struggle to keep your K/D from looking like you're a blind man in a tennis match. Last time I had that happen though come to find out my video settings got turned back up to 1080P on Ultra. It was when I was doing some CO/OP so I had bumped them up for that. Just little things we over look can really effect on-line play. So tonight before I start gaming I am going to check all my settings before jumping on, then all I'll have for an excuse is the beer :roll:
    Hey do you have guided shells for the Tank ? If so we should get together tonight and get another person for Machine Gunner and Medic. I could run the CIVTV seat. I'd go engineer too so I could lay mines and repair. If you got on TS we could use one of the off channels just so we could coordinate repairs and revives. I know Highway did that one night and he and his crew wreaked havoc. Let me know what you think or any one else who may be interested in trying that tonight respond. I know you like Caspian Border and so do I.

    I'm down with that dude. I do have GS but like never equip it due to my love of raining cannister shell death on Inf plus the fact no one targets enough. I can also hop out and pop off laser-guided Javelins.

    And cool though as for TS I'm willing to listen but don't have a mic hooked up at present (and really hate using it). One way voice comm is better than no way. :)

    Oh far from it, just having a bad luck week. The big patch and the DLCs can't come soon enough tho to fix/help and spice it up a bit, respectively.

    I dont think i will be buying the Close Quarters as it looks like a metro map pack filled with spamming gernades and rockets. the other epx packs look good. Any word on the prices?

    Yeah I thought about that too, except it will have
    new assignments and unlocks I may want. :ohwell:

    Cool I'll probably be on around 7 or 8 your time as long as the wife hasn't made plans I don't know about.
    Hey Dave want to squad up with us tonight ? I would even give up my Civy seat if you want it instead ;)

    New Battlefield Blog Post: Inside Dice: Post Launch Balancing

    Alan Kertz is Core Gameplay Designer on Battlefield 3. In this “Inside DICE” post, he explains how feedback from the community has a direct impact on the balancing we do on a number of items in our upcoming game update.

    [​IMG]

    It’s always a challenge for me to balance a Battlefield game after it has launched. Before a game ships it’s Our Game, and we can generally do what we feel is right with the game, even if it means entirely redoing some part of the balance (we did this multiple times on Battlefield 3’s development before we arrived at today’s combat pacing). It can generally be said that once a game ships, it’s no longer Our Game, it’s Your Game. It belongs to the community; I’m just a care taker; A Game Warden if you will.

    So it’s a lot of consideration that goes in to crafting an update with as many fixes and changes as we have prepped for our next update. Sometimes the community comes together and clearly demands a fix: “The USAS-12 and FRAG rounds are Over Powered!” or “MAV elevators have got to go!” It’s easy to make a quick reaction fix, though every “fix” for an issue can be essentially ruining another player’s fun. What’s game breaking for balance to one player is the very thing that helps another enjoy the game. It’s my job to pick which issues to fix, how to fix them, and analyze their overall impact on the game.

    Ultimately the community will make its opinions loud (though not always so clear) when an update lands, and many updates for many different games have come with unpleasant surprises for their respective communities. I really wanted to avoid that situation for Battlefield 3, so we’ve tried a series of different approaches. Various update change lists have been posted on Battlelog for all to see during the development of this update. And many changes and additions (and even deletions) have been made in response. As we went on in development, and after we had reached a feeling of equilibrium for balance in internal playtests, we released the specific data to a community site known for its in depth analysis of Battlefield 3’s weapons and vehicles: Symthic.com. Players then were able to look directly at the numbers, and the process of changing, adding, and deleting was repeated.

    [​IMG]

    To me, this process has been a huge success. The clearly unnecessary changes were removed based directly on community feedback, and some changes that may have swung the balance pendulum too far in the other direction have been moderated. I’m sure there’s still a strong set of opinions, and there’s clearly some hot button issues, so I’ve attached a poll for you to vote on: Tell me which change you want to know the reasoning behind. I’ll craft a blog post for each of them in time, and your vote will determine which order. If there’s something that’s missing from this poll list, please add it to the comments section. I’ll throw up another poll when my next blog post goes up with a revised list of hot topics.

    I look forward to doing more of these blogs, and to your comments and questions below.

    Alan “Demize99” Kertz, Core Gameplay Designer

    Which potential upcoming Battlefield 3 change do you want to know the reasoning behind?
    • USAS-12 and frag rounds: The Tale of the Tape
    • MAV Goes Up, MAV Comes Down, You Can’t Explain That
    • From the Ground Up: The M16 as the Core of BF3's Balance
    • Reconnaissance from inside 15m: Aggressive Bolt Snipers
    • Fragments of Random Output: Buckshot and Flechette
    • AS VAL: The VSS for the Common Man

    So am I right in assuming everyone will have to pay for these new map packs? Even for those who preordered/got the limited edition?

    Of course. It's "DLC". More than just new maps but if you don't think worth your money or a particular one(s) doesn't appeal to you just don't get it.

    Well that and I got my own taste of it! Remember that Tehran server? You ended up on that damn stationary missle in spawn for ten minutes while I'm sitting there in a tank trying to get your attention.
