No one on the TPU server :/
Yeah I did that on Caspian border the other night. The plane was going down so the pilot bailed and I shot him from
the Antenna base and he was around halfway between the Border gates and the antenna. It was sweet.
Yeah Im interested in some coop but I wanna completet a couple SP missions first which I will soon.
I have not unlocked the canister shell yet. Though from the sounds of it I'd rather have the coaxial over the canister. Usually I switch to the coax while I wait for the cannon to reload. I mostly use the cannon to remove cover that people think they can hide behind. Then switch to the coax to mow them down when they go running for new cover. Do it from a distance and let your team mates take the flag and use the tank to give them assistance from the enemy.
Yeah I always had the LMG equipped in BC2 but these cannisters are fun and effective. Like erocker said it's easier for them to get away when your using the LMG.
Hey I just found an extended ticket server; the first I've seen yet (1500 tix):
New Battlefield Blog Post: New Battlefield 3 fixes, Go Back to Karkand in Dec, chat with Peter Moore, and more!
Thursday, 03 November 2011 04:00
We hope that all of you are enjoying Battlefield 3! We believe it's the best Battlefield game to date and we're continuing to improve the online experience every day with the support of our DICE Operations team. We'd like to tell you more about the exciting future of Battlefield 3.
First off, here are the latest improvements we are rolling out to Battlefield 3 as we write this.
Squad Functionality: Improved!
Today, we rolled out a number of fixes that will improve squad functionality. Specifically these fixes will improve squad stability and lessen the risk of your squad getting split up when joining a game. Keep gaming, and keep sending us your feedback so we can hunt down any outstanding squad issues.
Default Server Region Setting: Improved!
In the manual server browser on Xbox 360, there was an issue where US players would sometimes be defaulted to European servers. We rolled out a fix for this today. You can still set your preferred region(s) in the server browser, and it's a great tool to find your favorite servers, game modes, and gamer friends. Check out this handy guide for everything you can do with the console server browser, and let us know what you think!
Game Stability: Improved!
Today, we rolled out fixes for several game crash issues. Let us know if this fixes any issues you have had.
Go Back to Karkand in December!
Our dedicated Back to Karkand team continues to make awesome progress on this expansion pack, which will be available in December at no extra charge to everyone who pre-ordered Battlefield 3. If you didn’t pre-order, you’ll be able to purchase it for $14.99, 1200 Microsoft Points, or the equivalent in your local currency, at the same date.
It contains four of the most loved Battlefield 2 maps boldly re-imagined in Frostbite 2: Gulf of Oman, Sharqi Peninsula, Strike at Karkand, and Wake Island. You'll also get to patrol the battlefield with your favorite Battlefield 2 vehicles and weapons, and the expansion pack also features the return of the exciting variation on Conquest called Conquest Assault (more on that later). And for those of you who love your persistence, you'll get new "Assignments" to complete for unlocks (we'll talk more about Assignments soon)!
Congratulations to Battlefield fan Simon W for naming and claiming our new control point!
We asked and you delivered! We asked our creative community to name one of the redesigned control points on the upcoming Back to Karkand map Gulf of Oman. We had over 18,000 submissions and tons of fantastic suggestions. However, there can only be one winner and that winner is Simon W. His control point name suggestion was Veteran's Retreat, which will be featured in the Gulf of Oman map in the Back to Karkand expansion pack in December. Back to Karkand Lead Designer Niklas Fegraeus calls it "a great suggestion that gives our veteran Battlefield fans a well-deserved nod while fitting perfectly with the map theme." Congratulations, Simon, and thanks for helping us out with the name!
Physical Warfare Pack for all
All of our players will be happy to know that Physical Warfare Pack will be available to everyone in the future! The Physical Warfare Pack contains the Type 88 LMG, DAO-12 Shotgun, SKS Sniper Rifle flash suppressor, and flechette ammunition for the DAO-12 Shotgun. Stay tuned to the Battlefield Blog for more information on exact timing for this.
Your chance to chat with EA's Peter Moore
Here's your chance to talk Battlefield 3 with EA COO Peter Moore. Our live-stream event with Peter is this coming Saturday, November 5th from 19:00 - 20:00 GMT.

Re: Conquest Assault in Back To Karkand.
Under certain conditions, you take all of the bases and "cap out" your opponent.
It could be a lot harder to recover from a near cap-out than it was in BF2, because in BF2, you don't know if the enemy is capping one of your flags until it flips sides. You don't get a progress report as your flag goes down I noticed this right off the first time I played BFBC2. One of the ways they speed up game play for console kiddies.

A Battlefield 3 server page has also been setup showing server status for Xbox LIVE, Playstation Network, PC game servers and Battlelog.
Battlefield 3 R8 Server Released
DICE rolled out a new Battlefield 3 server build today (R8). Again this update is only for server owners. Players do not need to do anything. Changes are listed below.
Battlelog Update #2
Since the day of launching Battlelog we have been working hard on adding new features and fixing issues. Today we’ve rolled out many of those fixes on Battlelog. The list below shows the biggest changes that we think you guys will appreciate.
The update that took place this morning contained over 100 fixes(!). This number is of course impressive but what’s more exciting is that a vast majority of these new features are based on your feedback on our Get Satisfaction forum. Thanks to you being so active there we can pinpoint what requests are in demand even faster. Next to each change in the list there’s a link to the corresponding feedback thread.
We monitor the Get Satisfaction forums on a daily basis and try to get a picture of what you guys want implemented or fixed. Worth mentioning is that community moderators, support and DICE developers are participating. So if you have feedback or just want to vote for ideas (use the star icon), use the yellow tab on the left side of the page. Thanks for taking the time submitting feedback. As always, we are listening!
More Server Browser filters
Even more filters have been added to the browser. How about filtering on game size, map rotation and password protection? Free slot searching has also been improved with added options. Requested by Power2ouse among others in this thread.
“Remember me” feature for sign in
When logging in you now have the option to remember your credentials. This allows you to sign right in next time you visit Battlelog, even if you close your browser. Requested by dannyboi among others Get Satisfaction.
Fixed server pinging problems in Internet Explorer 8/9 under “Protected mode”
Due to browser settings in Internet Explorer, server pings did not appear in the Server Browser and has now been fixed. This only affected Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox work as intended. Requested by FixWithFirepower among others. More info in these 2 threads on Get Satisfaction.
Play button next to server name for faster joining
When hovering a server in the Server Browser list, a play button will appear to the left. Clicking it will get you right into the action, even faster than before. Requested by dibley1973 among others in this thread.
Punkbuster check before game launch
Prior to launching the game, Battlelog will now check if Punkbuster has been correctly installed. This should fix the “Kicked by administrator” message some of you got after playing a few minutes. Get Satisfaction.
Refresh buttons for “Favourites” and “History” lists in Server Browser
The listing of your previous or favourite servers now features a refresh button in the top left. This will make refreshing your list of servers much easier! Requested by Rave-UK among others in this thread.
Server Browser now remembers sort order
Searching for servers now automatically remembers your sorting order in the server browser. Requested by NyanPrime among others in this thread.
Reminder about Battlelog's URL when signing in from Origin
Visiting Battlelog from Origin is a handy way of getting started as it will sign you right in. But you can also visit Battlelog from any computer and sign in like you would on any other page. Bookmarking your favorite pages can be very helpful!

i keep getting this : You were disconnected from EA online, started today :S
dunno why, i have resetted my router, running cable from it, i havent changed a single thing
So you get some dumb tags for sp missions nice
Planning on setting up a Mumble server with 20 slots. Let me know via PM or post what you think. Mumble is supposed to have the lowest latency of the VOIP clients.
I think Teamspeak works fine. It's in place, paid for and people already use it.
eh, I get massive lag on some servers even though the reported ping is usually <=60ms. I just figure that the features and benefits we can get from mumble is worth trying even if it is only a few. the mumble server is only $2 for 20 slots.
just seen this.... i lol'd.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eeN9ZZgGIkI&NR=1
I have no probs with TS. I may drop my 1080p though for the night and see how I do. Shit I have a 27" 2 ft from my face.
Quit doing the projector. 720p is not getting it. Hey Death have you learned to fly choppers in BF3 ? I'm looking to have
a team mate. I'll mech and gun. We kill it brother. Of course those stingers you have to be really good at flying.
yeah they need to take mortar's out of multiplayer. that shit is so whack
well, Here is the Mumble info should you guys wish to test it out.
here is the link for mumble:
Just went on a M1 Abrams rampage on Caspian, 18-3 and three combat efficiency ribbons, Ruskies kept camping Antenna putting up spawnpoints and such. Thermal Optics + Cannister + Reactive Armor. No one except this heli pilot at times would help me though despite spotting and a lot of time and I had to keep charging back and fishing them out by myself (also I was in a squad with cadaveca, triptex and scrizz; msg'd for help at A but mb they didnt see or were all on TS together). Woulda been at least 18-2 but I got bored and frustrated with these guys hiding and drove over the cliff near the flag and bastard finally C4'd me.
Love Mumble, used it for a guild chat when I played RIFT. Had no problems with it with guildies in Australia, NZ and US.
You can configure your own server with Murmur and not have to worry about monthly costs either.
no they don't, I just unlocked it
now i need to get a map an d use it
we were all on TS. lol
I was even telling you stuff. gues you weren't on....
i blame digi
Did you just use the word "whack"? I haven't heard that word since it went out of style in 1998. Bringing back the oldies I see.
They do not need to be removed. Mortars are a lot harder to kill people with than you think. If you got killed by one it was because you were either camping or clustered up around people camping. Once you unlock and use a Mortar yourself you will see how crap they really are. Hell once I used one for myself, I stopped getting killed by them. I haven't been hit with a mortar in like 4 days now.
Side note. If you are approaching a guy on a mortar, do it from his left side. He can see clearly on the right side of his screen since the map is not in the way. And you cannot get his tags because the mortar kinda counts as a vehicle like the stationary emplacements, so just shoot the mofo. If someone does know how to get the takedown animation when people are on stationaries or the mortar, do tell.
yay, whoever was flying with me tonight on caspian border thanks for the following practice. I almost had you i think too at the end. I got 50 points towards my flares do when you were amount to go down i shot you a few.
Oh and guys if you didnt know you can land the jets. I did, and i also pulled a 9/11 on the Antenna on Caspian Border on accident lol
Eh, my Upload is too low. 1mbps up. not to mention my router fucking sucks. I suspect that is one of my main problems.
How do we get these?
i assumed they were fake, if not i want lone wolf
Yeah the tags are a joke.
Yeah ok I am installing TS today. Can't (nor want) to always use my Mic but I can at least listen to and follow orders and/or suggestions.
Mortar is good against... mortar.
I believe if you hit the mortar with another mortar it will kill the user in 1 hit.
