I just hope you wont have only one choice of class because of that origin.
How it was in alpha?
Hey, has anyone thought about building a rig that is good enough to run this game yet?
I mean I know it isn't going to be the next crysis, but to those that know, how demanding is it really?
Only as demanding as you make it.
Right. It's one of those games.
the beta is your upgrade window. there will probably be a lot of articles and benchmarks.
I built a new rig for this game (other games too, this was just the catalyst that got me moving)
I want to run on max, hopefully won't need to drop more $$ on another GPU.
For the love of Battlelog...
twitter.com/Demize99: "Why Battlelog in a browser? Battlelog let's you check your stats, your friends, your feed from Any Where. Work, the toilet, the pub..."
twitter.com/Demize99:: "Battlelog on the web also makes it easier for us to support you the players. We can build a better Server Browser on Battlelog."
twitter.com/Demize99: "Finally, you can use all the features of Battlelog while playing via alt-tab. So you can check stats or browse servers in play (unlike BC2)."
twitter.com/Silvanoshi_EA: "@Demize99 And it being web based, you can roll our new updates for it without having any downtime/client patching, meaning quicker updates."

BF-Games @ Gamescom: Team Deatmatch, PunkBuster rcon tools
by -= Punkbuster =- 20.08.2011 at 12.00
It's getting crowded on GamesCom and BF-Games.net Team is almost entirely at the scene, to give you the hotest infos about Battlefield 3 . About an hour ago we had the chance to watch Community ManagerDaniel Matrosaka zh1nt0 play the Team Deathmatch mode on the map metro operation . Afterwards we had the chance to ask a few questions zh1nt0 in a Q & A. The result is an interessting list of details that we are providing you in the list below, since we're going to play TDM ourselves at 12 o'clock. And for those that are quietly underway to GamesCom we've got bad news: At 10 o'clock the waiting time for playing BF3 was already at about eight hours. Without a fast-path there is hardly any chance to play the game.
Comment by Mikael Kalms about RCON tools coming soon
Before we get to the overview, we'd like to focus on a Particular topic: the server files. There is not going to be any public server files. That has been said pretty clearly during the Q & A. On the upside BF3 is going to contain support for the anti-cheat tool PunkBuster. Members of anti-cheat communities like GGC are already in close contact with the developers to discuss topics like the PB screenshots. Reminder: In Bad Company 2 many screens simply turned out black. The third and last info concerns the RCON tools that did not seem to be developed before the actual release. Acezh1nt0 announced there is going to be a blog post about this topic by Mikael Kalms. soon We are looking forward to it and will keep you up to date.

Battlefieldo - BF3 GAMESCOM Q&A SESSIONS SUMMARY *UPDATE*
In the past few Days a lot of new Information surfaced through the Q/A Livestreams. DICE representatives Daniel Matros and Gustav Halling took a few questions from the Community and answered them on the Livestream. We compiled a list with every bit they confirmed in the Q/A Sessions at Gamescom 2011. Most importantly they confirmed:
no splitscreen coop at launch
they are working toward commo rose on consoles, probably not available at launch
unlimited sprint like in bc2, you can also strafe
9 MP maps confirmed “for now” (Operation Metro, Caspian Border)
dog tag customization available after you reach a certain level
limited number of rockets on planes, need to resupply at runway
hardcore mode and infantry only mode available
kill cam in normal gamemode
jets are a spawn point in Conquest
jets can fly really high in BF3, but you’ll lose controls the higher you go (1000m, like in BF2)
deployable 60mm Mortars
conquest flags will have a name and a letter
multiplayer fact sheet only confirms everything shown to this date, AND IS NOT FINAL
no LAN for BF3 at release, probably never (ANTI-CHEAT Measure)
A-10 is available in Multiplayer
AH-6J Littlebird is available in Multiplayer
no automatic hovering for the helicopters, feels more like BF2
stationary Carrier on Wake Island
Working at DICE makes it hard to have a Girlfriend
Our friends at BF-Games.net compiled a nice list of everything that got revealed at the Q/A Sessions with the Battlefield Community at Gamescom 2011.

A Vote system for an in-game server browser EA forums ,I don't know if we have one here in TPU but it will be good idea
O_O You can run it fine on that beast... It should be like witcher 2ish graphic requirements.
Afterwards of their clarifications it doesn't look that bad, if server browers runs better in a internet browser (technically this is true) and if the game relauches quickly ("before that game is again full or gone...")
But I wonder if guys with slow connexions will suffer from all that traffic in the background...
We will find in beta, but still, 23 days remaining...
I think I will suffer
from where did get the 23 days remaining source please !
From czech fan website (they have pretty good info, but I dont know from where)
But they can be wrong...
Just like BF: P4F. Along with the web browser battlelog thingy, it just looks to me that BF: P4F really was the true beta for the features and minor game teaks for BF3. Now I'm beginning to wonder if BF3 is going to be like P4F, feature-wise, but with updated graphics and prone.
Sir, yes sir. Right away, sir.
Plan B for "we can't work it out with STEAM".

Gamescom 2011: Battlefield 3 Interview - Mr Sark talks to Karl Magnus Troedsson (VP of DICE)
asshole crashed his own plane...*cough*amature*cough*
though i have to say. the footage was just beautiful. the way everything looked.... the wide open spaces. the clouds, the smoke and how fluid the motions were when he done some spins
I found myself beatin off halfway through that video... its the sex!
Suicide ramming YES
but crash crash, as in i had no idea how low to the ground i was kind of crash.... No, Never
then obviously you're doing it wrong. accidental road kills FTW!
WTF dude? TMI way TMI
IF you mean coming so close to the ground to clip and 'roadkill' people in a plane. yes i have done that. not killing myself in the process.
I think you missed the accidental. you should be flying so low you hit infantry without trying.
As a pilot
I try not to Jeopardize the plane, because if i go down. theres about 5 or 10 other people waiting for it. and more then half of them cant even VTOL or take off without damaging the aircraft.
I spent a whole wake island game watching one motherf**ker take off in a F35B damaging it because he yanked up on the stick too hard during take off fly off the carrier only to see his sorry ass spawn back less then 2mins later.
with all due respect to him - I was a noob pilot once too. but when im off in that plane. im in it for a good 15mins and then some unless otherwise.
If that makes me a plane whore because I like to put tools to good use and keep the noobs off it. then so be it.
fighter jets are made to dominate. not to be rammed into the ground over and over again at 300mph.
I know its all a game. but i take my flying very seriously.
^This. Same thing with me.
As annoying as it seem, patience always pays. And in maps where most are taking off in jets just to get to the fight faster and crashing there, not only it doesn't make a difference (in the score), that team usually begins to loose (unless there is a team of 3 medics there, 2 of them with pads). Eventually, those guys will begin to think that they may need armor and take a tank, leaving the jet to you (or me). Then, it's just a matter of taking off and raising hell from above!
The way it should be done.
