    Info for the TPU TeamSpeak server is in the OP.

    As for the "blue tint" if you don't know what we mean it's kind of hard to explain I guess. It's just that--a bluishness and more obvious on certain maps like Metro. There was a good post about it at Reddit after launch with screenshot examples (as the Alpha did not have this tint) but I won't be able to find now. Apparently the tint is not "gone" now but the patch raised the contrast or something so it's less noticeable.

    Yeah and it made it much harder to see players IMO. I'm colorblind and with the contrast now I cant see shit.

    Wow never knew that and surprised never mentioned with all the flap about non-colorbind support in other places like Reddit. Or was that just console?

    lol

    Some dude got me with one right after I jumped into a Jeep and was distracted by using the horn for the first time...saw it *just* too late. Kinda killed the good feeling I had from the double tank kill with C4 I had just scored. :D

    I'll have to take yours next time then. :p

    Plus I'd much rather get a nice double kill and end the round than have some useless tags. :D

    I got 2 complaints after the patch.
    1) Stingers don't lock on, it's completely random. I was stadning 10 ft under a Little Bird just staring at him right in my sights and nothing, had a Viper about 30ft out samething. I'm not sure if they have to be like 100ft away or some crap, but on Kharg at gas station they basically just hovered above the flag and ripped me out of there as it was impossible for me to lock on till they got about 100ft out then they just dipped behind a hill before I locked on and they were gone.

    2) Heli rockets or nose gunner must have got buffed.

    Otherwise everything seems ok, wish Suppressor hadn't changed, but oh well. My complaints from pre-patch still remain.
    1) Jumping is stupid, give me back normal jump, I'm sick of fucking dying because jumping over a damn rock is now an Olympic sport. So many times I get killed trying to jump things, all I do is pogo up and not leap it, pogo up not leap, catch tank shell in the back, throw keyboard (not really on last one there, but I'd like too)

    2) Give back old school knifing, sure lock ons and ice skating were annoying ,but at least there was a damn system to it. And sure sometimes you got screwed and it didn't register. But thats so much better than pulling out the knife and just staring at them (guy doesn't slash or anything), then having them turn around and gun you down, or getting gunneddown knifing.

    Interesting, I didn't think Colorblind mode did anything except change icon colors. I switched back and forth between them numerous times and seen no difference in game colors, so I just ended up going with color blind since the markers were easier to identify (though I am not color blind, but I can't imagine that would mean color blind mode color changes wouldn't be noticeable)

    Anyone else saw this L85A2 glitch on the recent patch? Pretty game breaking imo.

    With the Val I did two short burst then a medium and killed the guy pretty much every time. It has more recoil so full auto will make you miss more often than before. At long range it seems to have lost some power.

    Mines were suppose to be removed from doing that as well on this patch, but I think they changed that. Mines staying and C4 going was how it was in BC2 as well, simply because Mines can be avoided, it's all on the driver of the vehicle spotting them. C4 can be placed, so many times on Seine would I wipe out a building then get killed by the C4 when they respawned, could do stupid crap like that with mines.

    I miss the hell out of C4 resurrections, too. Sure, it was definitely a cheap move, but it was super satisfying blowing up whomever it was you were planting on after they killed you. I imagine there won't be quite as many tank kills with C4, now.

    I think they need to up the throw range to balance that out some, the way it sits it's just a suicide run. Maybe not the BC2 throw distance, but it still needs to be toss-able a bit. That will bring it back to being usable, but not cheap.

    C4 change will not impact me 1 bit im in the top 19% of PC users on BF3 stats in terms of C4 and i only ever used the death respawn C4 explosion kill once in 77hrs and that was just the other day for fun as they were removing it, considering i have around 290+ vehicle destroys with C4 without using cheap tactics i can honestly say it wont impact my C4ing of tanks
