naah, I have grown a thick skin. The trolling doesnt affect me anymore, unless it has a comical punch, then I might laugh a bit.. the last 4 posts only made me *yawn*

@Mayhemic.MAD, it's already proven and verified that these persistence skills (perks) you get, indeed encourages teamplay :) as it allows players to play more uniquely - custom his style - than in the old games.. like FH2 where you just grab a kit and "pretend" to be an engy, sniper etc.. when in reality, you aren't any different from any other player.

You'll see more teamplay in BF3 in any other game you ever played, including the "RPG-solutions" found in some mods. As soon as players have started to realize all that is possible with battlelog, the persistence system etc.. it will be awesome, and truly give a meaning to playing the game, something that has been lacking previously.... "playing to win" the round, is old stuff... monkey-business... Bf3 will open your eyes to new ways of looking at the game. enjoy

oh re-he-he-eally?... there were no unlocks in bf2? 2142?.... "ok"  ::)

we all want this, it's just you and a few other whiners who dont want a persistence system. The rest, we go yaY!! when the game gives us things as sign of progress

@maps:  :o awesome maps indeed, cant wait.

you misunderstand :

1) those games did not have unlocks for vehicles.

2)The options given usually where an alternative for standard equipment, not an "upgrade". There always was a tradeoff in range/accuracy/firepower. In bf3 it are true upgrades meaning that noobs get nothing, hardcores get everything. Maybe good for WoW , but not soo good for an FPS...

LOL @ the last few pages. Some of those attacks against BF3 are starting to be so absurd that I actually have to take Natty's side for a while.

you are avoiding the question.

BF 3 will be THE next step in gaming history, best FPS EVAH, all the cool kids will play it, you suck etc.

And yet I see nothing revolutionary about that game... just cutting down on a lot of stuff that used to be standard (and bringing some back - see prone), bunch of shiny flashlights, a social network wannabe implementation, and an overhyped persistence system that certainly won't keep me playing that game any longer...
This sentence is intentionally left unfinished...

I like the idea for Operation highjump. After all these kind of jumps from buidlings were always done in BF games for the lulz so making a map out of it seems interesting. Let's hope they have a similar parachute system like Fh2, otherwise it would be pretty pointless if everyone just opens the chute 5m fromt he ground.

I love Bf3. Its so fresh, mannn. 8)

People to picky. Judging by this thread's direction, I am late to the punch to post my thoughts. But I've visited forums the past few days. But my thoughts are simple, I had lots of fun in the beta. Maybe my thoughts are simple because I spent time having fun instead of making a list of things too hate on... just saying.

I don't even get why people got so mad at the glitches (not even just here, all over the internet people were raging about them). It was beta. Besides, I thought they were super funny and they gave me a good laugh!  :)

All in all I really enjoyed the beta, great game to kick back with some devs and friends and just have fun.

Nobody is complaining about the glitches. It's expected, they happen all the time.

People are complaining about DICE direction with the game, lack of past features that made the game great. And also the map design decision of clustering all flags in a straight line or in a tight circle.

you think EA pay people money to make you, like their games?... lol... ease off on the hubris dude.. it doesnt matter if you dont like the game, or buy it.. millions of real battlefield fans will do it anyway, you sit and preach how bf42 had all the best features if you want, we others dont care, because we all know that BF3 has about 1,000 more features than that game...
you always come dragging with the same old mantra
    -mod tools
    -free dedicated servers
    -naval warfare
    -maps that are gigantic where you can lol around where you want
    -all weapons available to everyone (no unlocks)[/li]

there are probably more of these awesome "features" from bf42 you want, go ahead and list them again please... maybe it's time to make a cardboard box, sit at the edge of the highway and preach with a long beard, maybe someone will see you on their way to work. the end is near, isnt it?

But does that make the game bad, or different? Maybe I am less picky, I don't know. I played both levels that were released and I really didn't have a problem with flag placement. On Caspian, I thought it was nice how forest and hill flags were very close, and others weren't to ridiculously far. But they were a good distance to allow different types of fighting going on e.g infantry in one area, and vehicle combat in another (and of course air in the sky). Its clever.

I just have trouble understanding why not including everything the past games had, make the game inferior to some people? I'd rather them be creative, with new ideas like they did in bf3 then follow the same thinking call of duty devs do, and create a "new game" every year which implements the same exact gameplay. Bf3 gives a fresh feel to fps, both console and pc. In my opinion, if its looked at more like a new game, rather then something trying to follow in suit with Bf2, 2142 and etc. then its much better.

I guess its just taste really, cause there are multiple ways to look at it. Nobody is at fault for liking or disliking certain aspects of Bf3, of course  :)

But for me; I'm glad Bf3 feels like Bf3, because its Bf3.

Tell me, Apple, what do you think about having to unlock flares for jets and co-ax mg for tanks?

I can live with coax MG unlock, it was in BC2 too.. Tank cannon was more deadly though, maybe it changes in hardcore mode. Well, tanks have always been useless in vanilla BF versions. Nade-spammed in BF1942, killed by jets and AT-guns in BF2 etc.

If flares are unlocks in jets, they should be first unlock. Otherwise they are FINE. I have no problems with jets being slow. I love flying in that game, if you don't count stingers. Flying in FH2 for example sucks donkey balls.

I just wish they went more into faction unlocks... so no M416 for russians or AEK971 for US for example. But you can't get everything.
