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 :p) 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! :D

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.

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.

Or someone who wants to level up a little faster so he
kind of looks like he knows how to play the game :roll:
I have a couple medals and stars I'm putting off until
then so get more points too:D

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.

Battlelog - Double XP Weekend May 26-27 on PC

Double XP Weekend May 26-27 on PC

By: trydling

Console players had a great time during our Double XP event the other week. Now, the time has come for our PC players to rank up faster.
During Saturday and Sunday this weekend (May 26th-27th), every point you make gets doubled at the end of round!


If you want to know exactly how we calculate your Double XP, head to this forum post [battlelog.battlefield.com]. The gist of it is that double XP will be accrued across all ranked servers and matches on PC. Start and end times below.

Now tell your friends and let’s have a great 48 hours of gaming!

Starts Saturday 26th May
00:01 PDT (Midnight Pacific/3 AM Eastern)
07:01 UTC
09:01 CET

Ends Sunday 27th May
23:59 PDT
06:59 UTC (Which is Monday 28th of May in this time zone)
08:59 CET (Which is Monday 28th May in this time zone)

Double XP in a nutshell

Hello ladies and gentlemen.

As you might have heard through our various Battlefield channels, we will be running a Double XP event for PC this weekend.

If you are wondering how exactly your Double XP scores get calculated this weekend, just check out the full run down right here :

So, imagine you have just finished a round with 2 kills and 3 deaths. Your total score on the scoreboard is an amazing 200 points and you finally start feeling like a pro. The whole round, you played as an Engineer. What you will see right after the scoreboard switches to the End of Round screen is that your Engineer symbol will flash, adding a total of 400 points to your engineer kit. This is your original 200 points multiplied by 2.

After your normal points have been doubled on the Engineer kit, it is now time for the game to count your ribbon score. You have received the Squad Rush Ribbon and the MVP 2 Ribbon. The Squad Rush Ribbon adds 200 points in itself and the MVP Ribbon adds 400 points in its original value.

You will first see these points added in their original values. They will then get doubled as “ADDITIONAL POINTS” (600 new points). Your sum total for this round would then be (200x2)+(200+400)x2=1600 points instead of the 800 you would have received on a normal weekend. Easy! :)

So in short, the scoring would look like this:
Original End of Round Score: 200
Engineer Score: 400 (200 original points + 200 for Double XP)
Squad Rush Ribbon: 200
MVP Ribbon: 400
Additional Score: 600 (Your ribbon score once more)

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.)

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.

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.:roll:

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.

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. :roll::roll:

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?
NOT!!!
