We all have our own playstyles, can't we just be happy that we all enjoy the game in various forms? I myself dont garner many kills, but i do know how to play a BF game and im usually top 5 in points most full matches.

Good game last night fella's, I kinda rage quit after highway and dave left cause of how badly BF3 was stuttering and skipping around. I couldn't even kill anyone some times cause when I run into them it will do 1-2 second freezes and once its done im already dead. I 95% sure its a memory issue as mentioned before. 3GB total and with BF3 fully loaded in game I had 2.78-85gb used.

Speaking of TS when I join how can I tell where people are playing? (I dont have a mic hooked up so can't just ask). Sometimes I just check BattleLog friends list but wondering if another method or what have you...

Then why can't I play the way I want to without being flamed? You've got your playstyle and I've got mine.
You can...it's just that complaining about vehicles in a Battlefield game is just kinda WTF, you know? Not sure why you chose this franchise then...

Battlelog is the most accurate way to tell when people are playing or not. 9/10 if we are playing, we are on TS.

Your going to love it, Karkand in frostbite 2 is a great map.

But be warned, there are tons of spots for campers, I mean tons.
Every-building is suspect to camper, its almost sometimes overwhelming with squad spawns and spawn beacons.

But that is why you pick up an RPG/ pick up an engineer class/ Jump in any heavy arty vehical and fix that :roll:

Yeah I know it's kind of essential to the franchise, but taking them out makes for a great game for me. I used to play almost exclusively SquadDM in BC2 for example. BF3 has better graphics, balance, bullet mechanics, hit detection (not by much because I think it's still client-side), and fluidity to it than CoD's newer titles. And $60 worth of content rather than an overpriced DLC.

I come from competitive play like CoD MW2 Search and Destroy on TWL, so I'm looking for a fairly specific playstyle that suits me and my buddies tactically eliminating the enemy without the use of vehicles. When I played MW2 competitively, there were no auto-shotguns, no dual-wielding, no killstreaks, only specific perks, and no 203s. BF3 has provided a more balanced game overall so that I can play TDM on a fairly level playing field without having to worry about every other person being an OMA noob-tuber. Long story short, I didn't choose the franchise. CoD began to be a disappointment, so I tried out BF3 and liked TDM.

Long story short, I'm really enjoying TDM, and once I get a service star for every weapon, I'll start branching out into different game modes and will probably hop on and play some Conquest with you guys more often as well. Until then, I'm happy to have a grand total of 3 vehicle kills.

Campers are so easy and predictable. Most of the time theyd just get ripped to shreds, and notice most of them at the bottom of getting points in summary. Not the best play style in bf3 imo.

However, a camper that relocates his camp spot every now and then is a nightmare XD

Another good thing about recent bf titles. You can either play CoD MW way or BF way. Where as MW, you only have one option

Can't argue with any of that.

I think they're spreading it out so the download servers don't get overwhelmed.
