Does any one know what time Double XP starts US times ?
Ill check the subreddit.
Good to be back; played a bit yesterday. After starting off rusty and shitty on a Oman server incl a grenade suicide lol (probably some hackers too tho ) I bailed and found a less crowded Seine server and cleaned up in a tank, 36-8 or something like that. Had a great gunner which helped; kept rejoining me and would also switch to the CITV at times. He aced me out of the Ace by less than 200 points at the end though. :/
Felt kinda good to blow the shit out of Paris too!
I'm not sure about the starting times, I'll probably be gone most of the weekend, anyhow. Once you're past level 45 there is nothing to gain by ranking up, so I don't see much point to it.
Well I still don't have lots of unlocks for classes that aren't engie. Also for choppers.
Yea alex is right. it is mostly for people just buying the game and trying to level up quickly
The vehicle unlocks are a good point since they use points instead of kills, but I'm pretty sure you won't get 2 kills for one, so the unlocks for other classes won't be affected.
EDIT: I guess I'm wrong. Kills don't have anything to do with weapon unlocks, I guess I don't remember things that well, I could have sworn they did. It's been that long since I unlocked everything I wanted. Other than the Co-Ops, so this would be good for that.
Its gonna be great for me. I can max out the Assault class AND have tons of noobs trying to get extra XP open to stabbin'!
Slip of the knife! I will control night! AND DAY!
Or someone who wants to level up a little faster so he
kind of looks like he knows how to play the game
I have a couple medals and stars I'm putting off until
then so get more points too
Kills count towards attachments though.
2 kills for one? I figured it would be 200 points for a kill, for example.
From what I hear, what they do is take your total from your match and double it.
I don't think there are any other extra's. Double kills would be sweet. I could use
all the help I can get in that Dept.
Look's like 1 a.m. Idaho time. Damn it. Oh well I'll get my medals and go to bed.
Starts tonight then?
Battlelog - Double XP Weekend May 26-27 on PC
Yeah 2 a.m. for you : ) Hey any one up for a few Rush Rounds.
I'd like some TPU guys on my team so I can win
Looking for 6 ribbons, but stopping at 5 until after 1 a.m.
BF3 fps well over 100 in Ultra
I searched to see what decent fps is in BF3 but I couldn't find info here on TPU.
I got my new system running pretty good (no OC yet for CPU) and in Ultra Mode I am getting WELL over 100 fps per Fraps. 100-165 so far, no tweaks.
Is that about where I should be with this setup?
That's better than when I was running two 5850s. So yes. That seems right.
To me, that's awful fast so I wasn't sure
Thanks for the reply Radical, I wasn't sure if it is a fluke or something.
I was surprised to see those numbers. To me, that's awful fast so I wasn't sure.
So far after 10-15 minutes of playing the game and trying to tweak the settings those are the numbers I am getting. But I have to go through all the maps, not just one. But even if I was just getting 60 fps I would have been happy. As it is, I'm estatic.
I got 50-90 FPS tops after that last patch that was suppose to "improve" performance. :shadedshu
I'm planning on buying a GTX 670 or AMD 7970 this next paycheck to replace my aged 5850. (Gave one to my fiance' for her rig.)
On ULtra ? Wow I have a GTX 670 and get around 60 average with factory Ocing. What resolution are you running ?
Oop's 2 GTX 570 , my bad.
Yeah Ultra should be 4X MSAA which runs pretty well on NV cards. You could probably benefit from a CPU OC as well with all that GPU bandwidth.
attempt an bigger oc on the video cards as well
Yes, I plan on overclocking this system later tonight, after I get out of work.
But I wanted to see what stock looked like first.
I wonder if I should attempt an bigger oc on the video cards as well, although they are already pretty oc'ed from the mfg. (EVGA) being the "Classified" models.
Yea...of course I will.
But at this rate I am wondering now if I really want to take advantage of EVGA's StepUp program and get them 670's.
I am in the EVGA Queue and I am # 113 and # 120 so I guess I have some time to decide.
I more than likely will exchange for the 670's but I don't know HOW in the world they could be any faster than what I have now.
Think the main real-world benefit right *now* would be lower power consumption.
The extra points are nice. But grrr just shoulda had an easy knife to end a round but the goddamn animation didnt start and instead I pulled my knife out and am looking at the guy while he shoots me dead. Maybe I hit the button a millisec too early but that was some bs.
lower power consumption
Well, if the biggest benefit I get is power savings, I could care less.
I am not a greenhead or energy conservationist in any way, shape or form.
Hey, I am a big block Chevy guy with rectangular port heads...lol. And I don't cruise, I floor it.
And if I have to pay $200 something for the "upgrade??" then it will take me what...25 years or something?? to recoup my cost?
