Yeah I have. It goes straight to battlelog.
Indeed! Thus, making Origin not needed.
nope, try it out?
*damn bunk ass battlelog*
Hope they change their minds in the retail!
Well I made my choice (Despite my worries) and pre-ordered BF3. But I have some questions some of you might be able to answer???
Okay if Battlelog goes down will the person owning the game still be able to play the single player campaign if they want???
The other question isn't really a questions it's more of a worry.....maybe EA has something about it.....So Origin already has it's issues with going down..... I do not know what in gods name made EA and the people at BF3 think that making Battlelog (another server setup) was a good idea. I mean we already have the chances for origin to go down now.... we will have the chance for Battlelog to go down too!..... I really hope they decide to get rid of it. I am not by any means holding my breath..... but it still would be very nice if they did!
BTW I just tried the applying the link to my desktop straight from BF3.exe and it still takes u to battlelog
I can see why some people don't like Battlelog but does anyone agree it makes the process of playing multiplayer more streamlined? At least compared to BFBC2. It takes minutes to join a server in BC2 once you get through the fancy menus, the login process, server browser and so on.
With the BF3 system you just click multiplayer, view servers, sort by ping, join server, then wait a few seconds and you are in game.
My point is that you don't have to wait for some fancy 3d server browser etc. and it seems to be pretty damn quick doing things like loading the map and so on. Less overhead. And when you get in game it seems faster then before if anything. Just my $0.02 anyway.
I will agree that it feels faster and feels more stream lined but I will also say besides the obvious issues..... it also makes me feel like I am playing a flash game instead of a real video game. (Minus the nicer graphics of course)
Millennium has a point. it is alot faster then joining a BC2 server. I wouldnt wind battlelog if you can press shift+F1 and goto origin/battlelog while in game and change servers.
if it hasnt been posted already
Someone right click on your BF3 beta in origin and click check for updates? DOES IT DOWNLOAD ANYTHING?
Apparently, it re-downloads the entire game (3.9GBish?). The Alpha required you to do this, but you don't have to with the Beta as it doesn't change anything.
you dont update anything i dont think. its just a guy clearing this up again
So it found updates today?
I found a tick on my neck. Does that count?
My Brother-in-law got an elk with his saddle gun, which should count. The old .30-.30 is a joke of a cartridge, so he's pretty stoked.
No its not. Shot placement son!
No, it by no means makes the "process of playing MP more streamlined". It take far to long to join a server with battlelog then it does with BC2. And the process to do so including the number of programs needed to join a MP game in BC2 is far less.
Also, what fancy 3d server browser are you referring to? If the feature is needed regardless of where it implemented then I wouldn't refer to a server browser as "fancy". To be fair and honest, BC2 loads faster for me then BF3 Beta.
I added it as a non-steam game into my library, so I can use the steam overlay in BF3 beta. AND my steam status says "Playing Battlefield 3"...
I noticed that yesterday.. I think you're on my friends list.
That's because PB is disabled. Wait until it's enabled
Out here where the pavement ends and the West begins, it sure is. You get one when you're a little kid after the .22 gets boring, to warm you up for real cartridges. You carry them in your saddle (I don't, I have a .444) because they are like a shovel - super handy to have, but for real work you use better machinery.
Anyhow, been having better rounds again, today. The only real frustrations were fellas packing the UMP-45. I unlocked the M416 but haven't had a chance to use it much.
Won't happen, and I hope they don't. Because it will take a lot of time, what they would need is an entire Battlelog inside the game. Not just a join server, because if you wanted to find friends that were playing in your platoon you would need to use Battlelog anyways. So they would need to add that part to the game as well. And if they did then Battlelog just becomes another stat tracking site as no one would ever use it. I wouldnt hold my breath on an ingame list, it just won't happen, if it does Battlelog will die, people think it will get use without server lists and friends list, I don't think it will.
Origin running isn't a huge deal. Eitherway, I don't think I have actually opened Origins window to start my game for the last week. I just click my link on my browser bar to bring me to Battlelog, then I start playing.
30-30 is the repeater that won the west. Sure their are better/stronger rounds. I agree. But with a good well placed shot its enough for most common game......Truth of the matter is you have to be a better shot with a 30-30 then you do say a 30.06 Its all shot placement. Your brother proved it.
With that being said I carry a 30.06 pump. AKA Gamemaster.
Springfield M1903A4 for me.
I like bolt for competition but when I'm running down a white tail the bolt takes me off target. Everglades hunting means no tree stand. You gotta hit a small FAST deer.
