I hoped BF3 would leak personally, so I can play the SP before release. Because of the (vehicle)unlocks, you will have to start grinding immediately if you want to keep up.

It's really not as bad as some of you guys make it out to be. You can do fine with the standard equipment.

Big deal. You unlock those after a few kills, easy to get. It's not like you have to spend hours in a vehicle to unlock anything. One round of Caspian in a tank and I unlocked IR smoke and COAX.  Making mountains out of molehills again.

Which you shouldnt need to do in the first place. Im guessing you played the entire round in the tank? or most of it at least?

Woah woah woah, aircraft start only their cannon?! Wow, kinda a big balance issue there I think. Seems like DICE should have made another WWII-based Battlefield game if they wanted that kind of air combat. Such a shame too, since I've always been a flyboy within the BF community.

Its hurting for the people, like me, who dont reach the max level after one week of gaming. In the Beta i really lacked behind because i had way less game hours to spend than some of the hardcore dudes.
I'm taking my own freedom
puttin' it in my song
singing loud and strong
proving all day long
I'm takin' my freedom
puttin' it in my stroll
I'll be hop-steppin' y'all
lettin' the joy unfold

I love driving tanks in the vanilla BF games, so yes like most rounds on Caspian I spend it in a tank. I simply don't see the problem. I explained how easy it is to unlock COAX to ease some concerns about the game being unbalanced beyond the experience of the player because of vehicle unlocks.

You guys make a hen out of a feather. Just play the game normally and the unlocks will naturally appear for you and you can use them. No need to get all high-blood-pressure just because there are guys who can do things you can't. Sooner or later, you too, will be cool and have all the toys  8)

the worst part is, the cannon rounds are like paintball amunition, just at a guy on the ground, and you have to almost hit him directly 3 times to kill him, thats just.... just, no words really.

same as the rockets, almost no splash damage, its like they made sure air vehicles dont bother ground anymore xD

What I don't like about unlocking stuff on vehicles is that you have to choose (at least in BC2) between coax MG or smoke.  (Unless I was doing something wrong).  Both would be useful, obviously.

It took me about 10 hours to unlock the coax MG on BC2, never got to do it in BF3.

Bad news people. We wont be getting a giant map to play with. Apparently OP Firestorm is the biggest map in the entire game. But the play area is very small...I dont know about you guys, but expanding the boundaries and playing in those mountains would be very cool...it would be nice to expand those boundaries a lot.
