    So far DICE learned a lot since BF2. Browser works and they rolled out a patch pretty quickly.
    Patch fixed Video glitches for me.

    Want to mislead me? Is this the nearly 500 MB patch that came out days ago? But 500 MB is not 'huge' anymore, when games ar 10 GB ... :roll:

    LOL Yeah...

    They have totally bolloxed up the squad system now...

    Before, 95% of players would be in a squad, now more than half of the people aren't. Of all the things to get right, I would have thought that this would have bee amongst the easiest....but no.

    Still lots of glaring issues with this title (which btw dont stop it being a f-ing brilliant game) such as the IRNV scope (serioulsy, I think they just need to delete these out the game) and various vehicle/weapon imbalances, such as it being easier to 'damage' an armoured vehcile in a jet by simply rattling it with a full burst of your machine gun, other than hitting it with a laser guided missile and then rattling it with as much machine gun fire as you can get on it. This kind of renders the laser guided missiles on the jets impotent. Just one example of dozens.

    To be honest, the only things I noticed were the fast loadings and the new squad menu which is still broken in Squad Rush and Squad Deathmatch, other than that, I don't feel any change, the game still crashes from time to time and sometimes locking my PC. Anyway, I didn't expect anything other than this, it's DICE for god's sake, when did they ever released a stable game at launch date ?

    I see that your system is overclocked. Try resetting CPU & GPU clocks to default and see how stable it is. It's worth doing, as sometimes an overclocked system will only play up in certain scenarios.

    What i don't like and also don't know if there are other people having this, is that when i click on the BF3 icon it takes me to the browser but when the game loads it doesn't automatically goes to the game load screen. It just stay there loading in the browser. Very annoying.

    tick the box the appears bottom left which should launch into game automaticly, if its not ticked it will wait for you to click the BF3 icon.
