    I spot constantly, I think the issue comes from you flying a fast moving vehicle. I rarely fly choppers, and almost never fly jets. If I setting attack orders on a flag, it's where I'm headed, probably on foot, but possibly in a tank. So I don't have to worry about putting the orders on it at an exact moment when my chopper crosshairs cross the flag, I just spam Q as I run at it and it lights up.

    But can't do that anymore, now I need to hold down Q, move my mouse down, hit enter, realize that didn't work, try it again, and hold full sprint while doing that and keep an eye out for enemies with a UI over my screen and a slowed reaction as I'll need to exit that UI to kill them. It's basically just a death sentence for me.

    I just personally see no need for the Comma though. If they made things on alternating cooldowns that would be much more intuitive. Ammo/Heal on it's own, Spot on it's own, and Orders on it's own cooldown, and your set. I see things like "Negative" on there and such now, I don't see a real point in any of that. Or a point in having a UI covering the middle of my screen in combat.

    Yours takes up more room. Why do you have your system specs and the same system in your sig? I have 2 systems in system specs just so I don't rape peoples screens by putting the other in my sig.

    You don't have to push the enter key, just release the mouse button.
    That being said, I absolutely hate the new order system, as well. I've been killed at least 6-10 times while giving orders, and even if I'm not shot or shot at while giving them it still messes up the general flow of what I'm doing. I have gotten much more proficient with it, I'm hoping at some point I don't even think about it, but I miss just pushing Q.

    I had tried releasing the mouse on it before and it never seemed to work, it just seems like the whole system is not working right. But even if it was I doubt I would like it.

    Oh. The size "rule" is for sig image dimensions specifically. Not the entire sig space. As for my specs sig, idk, it's just something I brought over from XS as that's the general method over there. Was thinking about getting rid of it anyway, guess this is a good a time as any.

    Just found this screen today, think I might remove some of the UI and make a desktop out of it, I call this piece "Chunks".

    Forgot how much fun this game is lol and does anyone have an idea of how many people are playing at any one time? Kind of curious after seeing that MW3 has a surprisingly low amount (though i guess 90% of people have better things to play on PC :roll:).

    I just installed the Better Battlelog add-on for Firefox that is promoted on BF3stats.com. It's pretty sweet.

    This is what the individual weapons page looks like now:

    yea it is pretty nice, to bad doesn't include some weapons aka supressed pistols etc are not taken into account and some of the information is wrong as of the last patch, but over all its pretty useful.

    Yeah I been using BBLog for about a month now and it's very nice. I just wish games in the Server Browser would show ticket, though I don't think thats BBLog related as I removed it and still had that issue.

    After that it got better again, a bunch of SoC guys joined the other team, they put up a good fight for a while, then they folded like a Lawn Chair in a Hurricane and the next game every single SoC member miraculously got "auto balanced to our side", and I mean all of them, not one other person did.

    I rage quit around midnight. Couldn't get a kill to save my life, literally or figuratively. Was sick and tired of Kill and Suppression Assists instead and not even being able to hit clueless infantry running in an open field while I was in a goddamn tank. Usually I clean up in such situations.

    Thanks for all the revives Alex though I couldn't do much with the opportunities and still went like 2-12. Meh.

    No I'm talking about the night before last when it was the Tech Rejects on one side and the Skype crew on the other. They had an off night to say the least. G8tor blocked it out like a molestation.

    I think that was the night I told g8tor to move to another channel cause he was in skype and TS at the SAME time and it was annoying to hear him talking to himself.

    I'm wondering which one of us they don't like that makes them turn to skype. I mean, obviously they don't have very discriminating taste since they let Phenom and Gator on.
