Fully agreed. There is a good reason why Hurtgen was voted the most popular of 2.4 maps, it is just awesome to play, even though or perhaps even because your choices are limited. Then count the times you have been standing alone int he middle of beautiful scenery on bastogne or advanced to the next flag only to have someone in a jeep back cap the one behind you.

I like Hürtgenwald mostly because of the visuals, the gameplay only really kicks in after the Americans cap the second flag in one of the corridors and the fight moves into the non-restricted forest. On a gameplay basis, I prefer big open maps like Bastogne, Cobra and Gazala. Pushmode does not necessarily mean that there should be a narrow tube. Yes, there should be focus. But there is a compromise between a totally sandbox mode and "scripted singleplayer" equivalent. Also, different styles of maps; a meatgrinder is sometimes nice, but if every map were like Hürtgenwald, I would have ragequit long ago.

Yeah imo Fh2 needs "playground" style maps too, like totalize or Cobra, where you can use all the thousands of different tanks... but the maps that stick with people are the specialised ones that are about something. I bet more players, even without ww2 knowledge, remember "that map where you climb the cliff" or "that map with the creepy forest and hte bunkers", but not so much "that map with the french village and the many tanks". Considering how mcuh time the devs and testers invest in each map, I think a move to the first kind is in order, even though there should always be that one vehicle playground per theatre.

So BF3 has been leaked: LEAK
Seems Singleplayer is playable. Is it already gold then ? I thought there was some ironing out to do, or is that just for a day zero patch.

lol what do you think?! The beta we played was said to have been behind by one Month. So not really a lot of time to fix stuff. ^^ This and with the list of things that they promise to send in after the release, day one to day 20 patches are already assured. ^^

I thought gold was 1 week before release. I did read from the BF 3 USS Hornet event that most stuff that was buggy in beta was fixed.

Hurtgenwald is the map i hate the most in FH2. Don't know what people see in it.Camping as a German in a bush, being killed by invisible hiding Germans as American.3 stupidly narrow corridors.
Anyway, had anyone seen any vids/pics of Beretta M93R? I hope they didn't just copy model from BC2.

Yea it's a crazy world we live in :) what one guy hates the most, the next one loves the most... I personally alt-tab to the desktop and go to facebook or some forum whenever El alamein comes up, same thing with Alam Halfa.. I just don't feel anything when playing those maps, a game of WordFeud on my girlfriends phone is more exciting to me.. still, others have their prime moments rolling around in tanks on those maps, but when maps like Anctoville, PeB, Pdh, Ramelle, Lebisey, Hurtgen, Sidi Rezegh comes up, the game immediately catches my attention again and I continue to care about what happens on the server.

Good thing we can offer all kinds of experiences in fh2... Im sure DICE wants to do the same. So it's IMO very nice and cool that we can choose between Rush and Conquest on all maps. I also think the TDM in BC2 was really nice... for just a 20-30min game session, it was sweet to just hop in and get some fragz, with all the "game mode stuff" stripped away... just you, some dudes and some weapons. Like a round of paintball. Hope we get that in BF3 also.  :)

The more ways you can use a game, the better. you could call it a TransProduct usability. (Many different ways for the user to interact with the product) Even if you can manage and do stuff while not ingame (Battlelog) is nice, dress your guy or buy/change gear. Maybe a lunchbreak you just do this kind of stuff, so the next time when you want to get some action, you're all geared up and ready to go. Or what would be nice would be if your teammate could call for an airstrike, and you get a message on facebook or MSN or Battlelog, then you control a web-based bomber plane (simple graphics) that drops the load in-game for your friends. 30sec interaction right there. Stuff like that

if BF3 is anything like most multiplataform games, the game gets a frezze some months before release for all plataforms and has to go trough some "paper work" to get liscense or things like that for the diferent plataforms (xbox, ps3), wich basicatly means that the PC version stops to wait for the console version to get ready, therefore not much work is done in the last month/s, therefore the reason for day1 patches. the Beta was obviusly older thant what they said

Trying to keep this thread clean from off topic, flamming and offensive posts. Would be a shame to lock this thread again.

Edit:

Or, you can send me this and get banned:

not the least.

Now back on topic: leaks suck big time, and I hope the damage weren't too great on the title. CryTek experienced something similar prior to Crysis 2 release.. one can always hope/consider that people that download leakz, arent potential customers either. So sales might not hurt from it.

If somebody cracks multiplayer then there will be a more then potential hit in sales.

Correct. Plus bear in mind the Crysis 2 leak wasnt massively damaging (considering it was very much broken). What was damaging was the reviews of it on PC :P

Every game is leaked sooner or later. For games focussed on MP (like Battlefield) it's not such a big issue.
