    just had a decent TDM round. Shut up some DBags raggin on me for not having the latest Intel rig cause unlike some people, I can not afford to dump my Pretty decent AMD rig for a New Intel 3960X rig with Dual 690s etc. effin DBags braggin about how many Alienware rigs they had. I shut them up by knifing the crap out of them. Pissed em off pretty bad too. got accused of hacking ^_^ Would have been better if there were some TPU guys there as well, was fighting the ASY clan. could of wiped the floor with them all.

    You would have had a better rig if you just would have listen to what EVERYONE was telling you...

    Nice job knifing those tools.

    Sounds too much like BF2 to be true. Wishful thinking I think.

    Eh we'll see. Some good stuff and some bad stuff. I didn't like the switch from being able to destroy almost everything, to being able to destroy almost nothing. Happy to see some of those changes, and others like the vague statement of being easier to pick up and play for COD players have me wondering.

    Get on TS and you can hook up with them, or use battle log to find friends.
    No TPU servers anymore. Not enough traffic.

    like we said, Windows 7 has been good to us. Why switch to an unproven system? Wait a while before switching. Let it mature. Tempted to Reinstall BFBC2. Got 1942 installed last night. ^_^

    You talking about BFBC2 vs BF3 ? Don't get MOHW then. I'm having a lot of fun replaying Crysis.
    Nice to know how to use everything and not have to learn by trial and error too.

    What is it with BF3 these days. Is cheating really as rife as some say it is?

    On BF2, I was always a competent enough pilot, but would get owned by pilots who were amongst basically the top fifity BF2 pilots in the world. In recent times on BF3, I have gone from being a competent pilot, to a completely shit one. I have the exact same setup in the game that I have always had in terms of the way my gamepad is configured for the aircraft etc etc. But now when I come up against any old 100 star general (and their are thousands of them around) it is like I am flying against facialclamax or PT|RATING (these guys were hot in the jets) on BF2. In otherwords, flying against just any old Tom, Dick, or Harry in the jets on BF3, has gotten to seem like how flying against the very creme de la creme in BF2 did to me (and we all know which system required far more skill to master).

    When I am up against these guys, regardless of what aircraft we are in, it just seems like they can turn a whole lot faster and/or none of thier cannon shots ever miss. If they were using some kind of hack that fired of thier cannons whenever my hit box was in thier line of fire, or even just displayed my hitbox, then that may explain the sensation of feeling that they can just turn much faster than I can. Of course, it is always tempting to think that you are being cheated when you are being inexplicably pwned in an online game so is it perhaps the case that I am missing something about the flying. Are the 'best' pilots perhaps using some kind of flight joystick that gives them a massive advantage? If any accomplished pilots read this can offer any insights into what I am doing so wrong I would be pleased to hear them.

    However, whilst I expect to be pwned by people who really do excell at a particular game or area of the game, it seems that on every server there are no shortage of 100 star General ace pilots around. It was not this way a few months ago and something to me just not seem right about it. I have gotten into the habit of Alt-Tab-ing out of the game and checking the stats of the 'Ace' that is pwning my ass and a familiar pattern emerges. Almost 100% of the time, my foe has a ScorePerMinute average of 700+.

    For example, this asshole has SPM of just under 1000! Now, considering what was posted on Reddit with regards to hacking on BF3 some time ago, according to the writer of this article, anyone with a 700+ SPM average has a 80% likelihood that they use hacks to some degree, some of the time. He also states that it would be very unusual to find a server without at least one hacker playing on it.

    So. Am I just shit in the jets or am I deprived of having some little extra box of tricks at my disposal that my 100 star General opponents all tend to have?

    Paying, for hacks, that destroy the fun in a game but guarantee 'success' may seem like a weird and obsessive thing to do (especially for grown adult), but we are talking about PC gaming here, and I would wager that there are a much higher proportion of obsessive compulsives amongst PC gamers than amongst casual gamers or the population of large. If just 2% of BF3 players were using hacks, then that would be enough to make a mockery of most games on most servers which is what things are beginning to feel like to me.

    there are lots of tweaks and hacks, and yes there is a hacker in almost every server. there is a tweak to change the turn rate in jets (I believe).

    as far as spm, ever since double exp started, it hasn't been a very accurate gauge for hackers. I hope it is something that DICE can get worked out before their next game release. (I really don't see them putting much work towards it right now)

    SPM is to dependant on game modes in this game. I use to play 32 man Conquest Large, did that for the first 180 hours I played this game. And my SPM I think at max was 450, just too far between targets, too much time running to hold a high SPM. After a while I switched to 64 player Conquest, and lately I been on a 32m TDM kick. Making those changes my lifetime SPM is now something like 750, I reset my stats right when I changed the modes/maps I play onto see what the difference was, and I'm over 1100 SPM. It's seriously so dependent on that. Even Maps. I've seen absolutlely horrible players with 600 SPM that play only 24/7 Metro, all they do is hug a corner with a med box down and revive people. Doing that alone can get anyone 550+ SPM.

    Theres tons of people over 700 SPM without hacking, especially those that only play meat grinder maps/modes.

    Jesus Mary mother of fkn God!

    A tweak to change the turn rate of jets!? That alone would totally explain what I am experiencing. (Getting out manouvered by Flankers pilot when in F18 for example). Well if there is such a tweak, and DICE aren't doing anything about it, then I am going to have to find out what it is and use it myself.

    My reaction and planned course of action probably also explains why I never used to notice this phenomena but now find that it is par for the course. once upon a time, not that many people used it, but as more and more people get shafted by it, more and more people turn to it and it becomes a rampant problem.

    P.S. i hate all those bollocks stats and faggy gimmicks such as 'Double XP' weekend.

    Edit: Here is a youtube video of F-18 pilot making his jet 'turn on a sixpence'.

    Apparently not a hack, but due to the pilot knowing to maintain his speed at 315 when turning. However, in the video, the pilot maintains his speed at 315 whilst being in 3rd person view (outwith te cockpit and the speed gauge). I refuse to believe that the pilot 'just knows' what 315 feels like in a computer game and that he is using some kind of trick to maintain his speed at the perfect turning velocity. A relatively well known trick that all the 'best' BF3 pilots are using, hence the gamer who doesn't know about this will get pwned everytime.

    Edit 2: I have figured out how some pilots are experts at holding thier speed. They simply use a macro command to alternate between their brake and thier thrust at the correct rate. So what should be a very fine art, can be executed with the simple touch of a button. This may not be cheating as such but I would wager that it certainly isn't how DICE intended the game to be played and anyone who is using such a finely honed macro command is going to have a huge advantage over those who don't. It may as well be a turn hack.

    Is 5 MBPS enough to run BF3. My overages are killing me at 50. They give you unlimited at 5.

    There were quite a few of us earlier, I must have logged out just a few minutes before you joined. Damn near the whole gang was there, I assumed you were still in the hospital trying to get that Baby Ruth dislodged.
