    How big is the patch?

    I want to know so I can plan my afternoon. As I see it, I have two options:

    Large Patch:
    1. Get home
    2. Fire up steam
    3. Go for a run while downloading
    4. Finish run
    5. Play BC2

    Small Patch:
    1. Get home
    2. Fire up steam
    3. Fetch a beer and/or snack
    4. Finish beer
    5. Play BC2

    I really should sort out a remote connection so I can fire up steam from here.

    It is a game. Let it be I say. How realistic does it have to be to have fun ?
    Does it have leave body damage like paint balling ? I just get nervous when new
    patches come out. I have had them totally screw my computer up in the past. Look
    how much you had to patch prior Battlefield games. This game is far more realistic then anything prior. Leave it alone after this patch. Unless they want to add prone ;)

    it's less about realism and more about balance.

    Oh balancing the different classes ? I get it now. That will make the game play more evenly matched. I had a sniper in Hardcore last night just made the game suck. I went 18/25 and at least 10 of those deaths were from one camping guy with a 50 cal. One shot you are toast. Finally I just started hunting him. Still shot me like 3 more times. So yes I see why they need to patch now.Thanks !

    "Tracer Dart now travels four times faster than it used to."

    That makes me happy. Damn your choppers.

    I still want a realy vehicle map like the maps from 2142 that are nice a spread out. Not all the flags are in a straight line full of chock points. Give me fields or give me more guns.

    How can the tracer dart speed be a good thing. The choppers already fly like garbage. So far they've buffed the tracer dart, reduced the chopper explosive damage, and increased damage from AA guns.

    The last thing the game needed was easier methods of taking out choppers.

    I agree the choppers do fly like shyte... IDK I think anything that can help stop the blackhawk from being a giant flying spawn point is a good addition.

    The chopper mechanics in this game make me fearful of poor aerial vehicles in BF3...

    "Spotting, like the repair tool, uses "overheat" to prevent excessive Socialize use.
    The player is capable of about five Socialize button presses in rapid succession before overheating and being inoperable for five seconds.
    With the cooldown, the fastest continuous rate that a player can spot without overheating is once every two seconds."

    I didn't know this and it explains so much.

    I didn't see anything about changes to chopper's damage or changes to AA or stationary weapons.

    so.. i'm downloading the patch now.. question is.. how is the game performance? smoother, better textures.. anything about crashing or whatnot. I kinda new the weopon changes were coming, and wasn't to worried about that, i'm more concerned with stability and the like?

    Well I am happy I got a platinum in choppers now before this update.

    Not overly thrilled with this supposed balance tweak. Oh well time to move on to a new game.

    my performance hasnt changed, and i still get the flickering textures/blocky shadows.

    but i'm confident thats just ATI's drivers sucking.

    If you're camping in an attack chopper and not moving, you deserve death. fast moving choppers can still dodge tracers.

    its not about the tracer. the chopper has small chances against AA as it is.

    considering its pretty much impossible to shoot down with anything else, thats good.

    As people may have missed the changelog from a few pages back:

    345MB total for Steam patch.

    Connect speed is not really the issue. What kind of connection is it? DSL, Cable, Fiber, etc.

    Tanks, Rockets, Rocket turrets, HMG turrets, LMG turrets, AA, .50 cal turrets on humvees, and UAV. :wtf:

    All of these decimate the slow moving attack helos.

    Also using the smoke spec to remove the dart only works once the enemy has attempted to lock on to the tracer dart. Firing the smoke without attempted lock has no effect on removing the dart. Rockets once locked and fired at a dart cannot be avoided. Once dodged the rockets can do full 180 rotations to keep on target. Combined with tracers that fly 4 times faster than before and take 3 sec to reload.. CHOPPERS ARE F***ED now.

    tanks: you're in the wrong place if they can aim their slow moving turrets at you
    rockets: again, slow. mooooove damnit.
    rocket turrets: these things turn slower than a 90 year old woman.
    HMG turrents: viable, but shit... you're a chopper. kill them.
    LMG: takes too long to hurt choppers.
    AA pwn, but slow. keep moving, stay low and use cover. yes, cover. tall buildings n shit are handy.

    Humvees. HUMVEES? they cant hurt infantry, let alone a chopper. you got so much firepower they should smooshed.

    The AA is not slow. It moves very quickly. It is a bit messed up.

    What a chopper needs is a more open map. Everything he mentioned is all clustered together in a few locations with all your targets, so a lot of it will shoot at you at once. That is a lot of crap to dodge. I can't say what for what cause I am not sure I even have the update, so I will have to wait and play and see how it all works out. If it is broken, complain to EA: Bad Company 2 Team. They are pretty cool about fixing stuff that a lot of people bitch about.
