    Wished they would have a mixed rotation option were it can be seperated for regular conquest/rush

    Well I decided to keep my CJS order. I had a few emails last night, I actually got 3 responses within half hour and am confident I will get my key on 24th, which is tomorrow!! Hopefully I can load ok.

    What have the origin servers been like, anyone in aussie got it yet?

    not sure although I am taking my chances, I am downloading a RU ver DVD clone of Bf3 about 9.96GB in size which make sense since it doesn't include the patch etc. This is the only way I can preload at the moment and I hope origin will recognize the game when my key arrives.

    About mixed mode servers: if they do it, it will be a new thing, given that they didn't exist in BFBC2. Now some people will cry "FALSE! I seen dem mixed-mode servars!!!!!!!!!!1111111" And the reason you saw "mixed-mode servers" was all in the the server admin tools, which switched the server from rush mode to conquest, and vice-versa, often at every map change. It had nothing at all to do with the server code itself, but instead managed completely externally.

    Still, I don't see myself running a 64-slot server, which I have already, and switching over from 64-player conquest to 32-player rush?

    So it might work on consoles, but not on PC, except maybe from 32-player rush to 32-player conquest... But then you're already losing the large-scale aspect of this game...

    I got sick of damn mixed mode servers. Hate Rush, join a server labeled as Conquest, next round... Rush map. Some servers were smart enough to say Mixed Modes in their names, the others just upset me.

    Personally, I dont mind Rush so much - it just depends on the map. I played on a fair few mixed servers in my time and i quite enjoyed switching from conquest to rush - it breaks up the monotony of conquest mode.

    but then im one to talk about monotony as all i do is play on 24/7 Oasis or Atacama Desert servers. (for lack of a better option - too many 24/7 heavymetal map servers out there)

    If your profile is correct in that you live in Poland, the BF3 site states 28th.

    Source:
    http://www.enterbf3.com/topic/2482-battlefield-3-release-dates/


    Would these effect digital copies? or are these dates for physical copies because so far I can confirm that my local EB Games (Gamestop) had the 27th release date for their copies hence why I cancelled my pre-order from them and bought a copy online instead.

    I find Rush as a whole Monotonous. You are at A, you need to get to B, map doesn't have much room to move sideways, enemys at B knows exactly where you are coming from. Objective, throw your bodies into bullets till too many of them have to reload at the sametime. Rinse repeat for each new set of crates, or each new map, every once in a while you can drop a building onto a crate and 1 shot it, if thats possible, do it, otherwise revert to corpse throwing.

    So to mix monotony in with my normal monotony (Conquest), I just don't need a double dose of monotonization.

    I hear bashing your head into the keyboard is the most effective way to control the plane.
