What I wonder why they didn't put the website thingy into the origin. Steam's store is basically a regular  web browser, I guess origin is not that far from it so should be more than possible to do.

That's what the community is suggesting. But will DICE listen? Nah, they're that stubborn.

The beta is a blast despite only playing one map.  The suppression system is great.  Bipods are a nice addition.  The gunplay in general feels great.  You don't have to unload an entire assault rifle clip to kill someone.  I am quite pleasantly surprised the weapons aren't weak, nerfy toys!  Plenty of gadgets to add to your weapons.  Great stuff imo. 

I just wish I was able to play more than a half hour on Caspian Border, aka the real Battlefield map.

Downsides so far are:  dorritos all around,  tanks don't come with a coax MG as in BC2.

The tanks never came with a coax in BC2, it was a stupid perk.

yes lol, because the community is such great designers (lol!)  ;D

brilliant perk.. it's the same in bfp4f.. it's great to keep coax as an unlock. It makes vehicle skills matter more, and makes vehicle behaviour less predictable. Players love it.

desperately grasping for links to help me seem less confused
yea, the world outside your tinfoil island is big dear and scary homerjay.. there are many many people in the world, and since bf3 is such a big big product with millions and millions of fans, isn't it flat-out amazing that some of them dont like it?  :o

I mean.. here I was, fully expecting 100% of all the people in the world to love it unconditionally... man, so wrong I was.... wait a minute, you tell me that people on facebook actually have something negative to say? my world is shattered, we need to call Time magazine, this is front page stuff!

Don't you have more random links to sites where people say negative things about games or other forms of entertainment?  I so wish to read it, it really enlightens my life  ::)

To summarize this little freakshow: Bf3 is soon released, You need Origin to play it, the end.
What you think about it, matters so little in the world, Im sure that if I take a spit in the atlantic, and I wait 1 week for it to dissolve, my spit will be more visible from the moon than what you think about bf3 has had any impact on the interwebz. funny thing is, you will buy BF3, you will play it, you will like it, you will complain about things, but 6months from now, when you fully have realized exactly why and how things work in this new online experience, you'll look back at this thread and think quietly for yourself "ooooh.... that is what he meant...."

See you then, kthxBai :-*

Not this time Natty

Not this time

I bought every battlefield from day 1 of release(exept BF1942 i never heard of it before, bought it a year after release)

BF3, origen, your little marketing speech just over there. Has made me doubting this game very much
-i am fairly sure that if they took porn off the internet, there would only be one website left and it would be called bring back the porn "Perry cox, Scrubs.

It's called feedback. Origin fails, end of the story. You require internet to play, you need to do everything through origin, and it fails to connect sometimes saying that you should check your connection but the connection it's fine.

The community "whining" can help to make decisions, like when they didnt want to include commorose, and now is for the full game.

I have to admit, a suppression effect and the bipod thing are a nice surprise, something I would not have expected from this game. But all those damn downsides....
Any news on any mods? Or rather, is there any way to even slightly change the core game, maybe server side? . I'm assuming that changing weapon recoil for example is too much to ask, but would it be possible to change the damage done by different weapons or remove certain features?

Plus, all in all, there is truly NOTHING NEW whatsoever about BF3...
Can you name me one thing that BF3 has what other games dont have?

Exept origen ofcourse

Making himself look like a ridiculous child.
Once again.
Well done, well done. You´ve shown once again that it´s impossible to discuss things in an intelligent and reasonable way with you.

In the end I won´t change a thing, but that´s not even my intention. I merely stated which "features" of the game make me reconsider buying BF3, yet you damn each and every of my posts as the rambling of an "immature, big agency fearing, conspiracy-loving dude".
Even though I get "support" from other forum members, who feel the same as I do, you keep me in your crosshairs and try to make me look ridiculous, without going into the critized points others posted as well. You basically ignore the others while you hand out insults and mockery. Kudos!

Your "tactics" of making the other party of a discussion look bad and "stoopid" might work when 10 year olds do it ("I´m right and you stink, hahaha lolz!", "no you stink!"), but it´s a damn shame seeing this behaviour coming from a more or less educated adult who has spent some years on this planet.

I won´t go into details why a 50-50 "like/dislike"-mix by 32000 members of a closed community actually does matter (you might want to check out how poll forecasts work), since you will try to insult me with "tinfoil hat"-pics once more, but I´m fairly sure that there´s a good number of others here and in countless other forums (even in the EA forums, where complaints-threads are being closed fairly quick, so much to being open for criticism) who see this whole monkey business, too.

In the end it´s a win-win situation anyway. EA/DICE can milk their cow because enough people will buy the game and I save 50 Euros I can spend otherwise, without missing anything.
And that´s the important point, which needs no further discussion. So unless you have anything constructive to say about the game´s mechanics in a civilized manner I´m out of this discussion. Have fun at whatever you do, l´ll do this thread a favour and from now on simply ignore what you say and see you being torn appart by other forum members. To use your "internet slang": KTHXBAI!

"fails"... really? does EA know? maybe you should call them and tell them this, Im sure they'll be delighted to get that information. Maybe they will hire you as senior platform producer, so you can make it right.

j/k... millions of players will be using Origin to play BF3. is that "fail"?.. I think not.

@homerdude.. I didnt read your last post.. i scrolled past it, because tbh.. Im bored with you now, you were amusing in the beginning, with your links and attempts to gather a "posse" (we who unite against the evil of EA and origin  :D) but now you're just zzzzz repeating yourself and will never, ever, get any point across. Goodnight.  8)

Unless mod tools are released and until quality mods are available, I will not buy BF3, I will not play it, I will not like it as vanilla no matter what, and this "new online experience" translates to "silly COD-like shooter for ADHD kids".

Pity. This game is looking really good. Some brilliant things i saw there. Yet its all ruined by stupid things like Origin, Battlelog thingy and such. For the first time ever i really hope a game gets "yarred"

It's an awful way to start the game. Origin sometimes crashes, you need to CREATE an MANAGE squads, in battlelog! Not in game! You need to alt+tab, the game to even change the settings! You dont have a menu anymore, not even a serverbrowser but just origin and battle fail log. And sometimes, even the PLAY NOW button is buggy. Battlelog/Origin at the very least should be integrated INTO the game, like STEAM is, and it works excellent.

Unless mod tools are released and until quality mods are available, I will not buy BF3, I will not play it, I will not like it as vanilla no matter what, and this "new online experience" translates to "silly COD-like shooter for ADHD kids".

Exactly my thoughts as well. BF3 has too nobofied features, too many to count and the core gameplay values are being stripped away. No mod tools, no buy from me.

Get on with it then? :P

EA/DICE has never released their own mod tools, the BF42/BF2 mods were made with tools made by the modders.

The fact that players will be enforced to use it to be able to play doesn't mean it can't be shitty. Your argument holds no value whatsoever lol.

The concept is rather good and modern and I like it. The way it works right now however, is simply shit.
