    Did you watch the video, or are you just blindly responding with a wall of text on how you play around suppression tactics? That guy is tap firing (he's a very good player, hovers around 1k SPM and 24% Accuracy). And of course moving and firing kills accuracy, it seems like everything I'm going to respond to here is stuff that you wrote that we all know... anyways.

    1) Proper tactics, it's what a good player does.
    2) Proper tactics again.
    3) Using the minimap and moving from cover to cover is proper play.
    4) Having smoke while using squad tactics is great, I usually run health boxes and ufgy runs smoke.
    5) Proper again, squad play is what everyone should try to do.
    6) Flanking is my favorite tactic, I been ranting about this since back in BC2, and it's part of the reason I dislike hallway design.

    You give some good tips, but being in response to my post, I don't really need the tips, I know how to play around suppression mechanics. I'm just simply responding to you saying suppression doesn't effect you. If you mean you use proper tactics like cover and flanking to reach your target, thats understandable, but thats what everyone is doing. Thats not what people are complaining about (and if they are they are noobs). People are complaining about how much suppression effects accuracy, pure accuracy, not your flanking tactics, and thats why I posted that video, just showing the pure effects of suppression.

    Yes I watched the video.

    My point was that if your using proper tactics, then suppression is not a problem. As you agree, then what's the problem with suppression? Does it not do what it is intended to do?

    In the video he shows how not to use proper tactics and why suppression works.

    1K SPM and 24% accuracy I could not care about. That's another useless stat like k/d ratio. My opinion though.

    One thing I've noticed from playing "normal" game mode, thanks to the 3d spotting, everyone on the map shoot for you no matter if they can hit you or not. Maybe this is the reason for the difference on opinions about suppression, idk. I know you do not have that on "hardcore" mode.

    edit: Sorry if I came across as trying to give you tips and acting like you didn't know. I just started writing and it seemed easier to put up points then list an endless paragraph ( :laugh: ). Just listing how I usually get around the suppression effect.

    edit2:
    If this is what the complaint is about (at the 1:30 mark) then I fully agree. It makes no sense to make the bullet not go where you're aiming. It's more like the bullet is suppressed, not the shooter. None of the other videos pointed this out. I thought it was sway in the gun that was causing the missed shots. Not the shots going in a completely different location then I was aiming. That makes absolutely no sense.



    Btw does anyone know of a video pre patch that showed how suppression worked?

    now imagine using an LMG while surpressed LOL. from 10-15 meters away you can cover that entire wall with bullets with 10 ppl standing in front of it and still not hit a damn thing LOL

    I like the way suppression acts in BF3. Imagine realistically if bullets were wizzing by you. YOu would probably have your eyes closed hahahah!

    Actually I gotta say, he earned that in the tank on the 19-1 round. He just had some good backup. I think he might have been in the tank both rounds, actually. I think we lost one of those rounds, too :laugh:


    Oh, and I totally owned Orhan time and again. Not everyone was so lucky. I had wondered where he went...I kinda missed him. I thoroughly enjoyed feeding him my darts. lulz.

    That always helps, of course. At first I liked how in BF3 I could have both an projectile and mines but now I wish I could carry mines *and* a torch. Though it's still probably better this way overall.

    Edit: Just found this very interesting read at Reddit. Longer story short, regular player decided to purchase and learn/study/test one of the more popular hacks on the market. Very interesting (and pretty discouraging) read:

    I see a lot of people say that, if SPM, Accuracy, and KD combined aren't showing a good player, then what is? You could get into more complicated stats like Flag Attacker/Defender Medals per hour and such, but I'm honestly too lazy to go to Battlelog and calc that for him :p Though I'm sure it's high, his KPM is insanely high, 50+ kills an hour is a really good player, 60 is getting pretty crazy, 70 is way way up there, that guy last I checked was at 126.... Thats over 2 kills a minute. Granted I know for a fact that he plays a lot of Metro, but still.

    Now you see what I was talking about. The video I linked showed that, tap firing aiming dead at a target while standing still and down the scope, you might use a whole clip and not even hit the guy you are aiming dead at who is also sitting completely still. Like I said before when I thought you were saying you were basically immune to the suppression effect, you must have good dice rolls :p Because after being suppressed, firing is basically like gambling your money away at a casino, theres a small chance you might hit it big, and a big chance for failure.

    I'm not sure what you are talking about, nor do I even recall who this "Orhan" fellow is you are referring to.

    Looking back I can see now what the video you posted showed that. Though until I showed the one I linked to, I did not realize that the bullet was not going where you were aiming. I think the video I showed (especially from the sniper scope) does a better job of showing the problem. I was under the impression that when suppressed that it made it harder to aim and that's why the shots were missing.

    Though when I'm being suppressed, I usually just run away :laugh:

    Congrats.

    And nice, ugfy. I haven't really managed to do that yet (though that dude gave you a pretty good opp). Not someone firing at me at least. Once managed to tag a slow-and-low flyer from the side on Wake for a disable and then finished him off with a cannister...

    I have a couple time. Great feeling. Got pretty good at it with choppers on Heavy Metal on BFBC2 ! I learned you have to adjust your mouse and speed up the cursor when in that situation. It helps a lot. I'm getting a new mouse and gamepad when I get my new card hopefully. the Logitech G300 and G13. Never used a gamepad, but the way the keys are laid out and the info it sends you should come in handy. The mouse I have big plans for so I can get to my pistola faster mainly with out changing the lay out I'm used to.
