The repairman strategy of Z11's/ Spawn Copters [and even tanks occasionally] is not hard to counter. Simply kill the batman...err...repairman. Flying a scout chopper with an engineer fixing you is grand fun, but fighting it can be frustrating until you get some team work involved. Generally you need at least one Stinger/Igla pointed at it, a vehicle and some intelligence. The AA gunner in the posted video was awful. He was like 200m out, firing only when able to, and completely missing a huge chunk of the auto-gun shots. If he were closer, he could target better and hit the repairmen, maybe even hit with a missle or two and do damage. It also didn't hurt that he was firing at a Spawn Copter and not a Z11/Littlebird. Those things take a beating no matter what you're firing with. Legit his those things with 2 heatseekers straight on from a Jet only to get it smoking, not even disabled before. But that's fair, since they're practically defenseless.

 

And mortars are perfectly balanced. They rarely do more than suppressive fire, unless you're playing rush, they're easy as sin to kill [especially if you counter-mortar] and I've only encountered a mortar user in maybe 4/10 matches.

 

 

Ya'll need to stop friggin' whining.

I've returned because I only just got around to reading this:

http://i.imgur.com/myLUj.jpg

 

I'll begin from the first panel, panel bby panel explaining how whiny the community is being over what I believe is a near perfect game:

 

1)

It's an intro screen. grow up. Give it the 2 seconds of self advertisement. Patience is a virtue.

2)

Loading the full battlelog slows RAM down, along with loading speed. Choosing not to load it will help those with poor connections. It's not even very relevant information overall, if you're really going to [bleep] about it.

3)

Have you read those messages? Are they truly SO important that you have to read them twice? No. So who cares how fast it scrolls BACK to it's original position.

4)

Server Choosing is a little sloppy, but if I recall correctly, it's not terrible. I just use quickmatch and I'm content, so whatever.

5)

You're the one complaining about menu layout complexity. So now you're demanding even MORE menus. That makes sense. Pistol specialization is a tactician's choice, and it's easier to switch it out on the fly using the quick menu used upon spawning. Which is actually really convenient if you're not a dunce. But more on that later.

6)

Over complicated weapon menu? Are you kidding? They couldn't have made it any simpler. Pick class, modify class, deploy. THE END. To mod your weapon, yes you have to go into an extra screen. Big deal. In this screen, more details are given to you, with a closer look at what you're actually doing. If anything this is more complicated. I'm actually not a fan of using this screen at all during a battle, as I prefer to mod my weapons before I start playing [in the player menu of the main screen upon inserting the disc]. if I need to switching my L96 for a USAS-12, they ALREADY HAVE MY MODS ON THEM. It's not like it's forcing you to mod your weapon every bloody time you spawn. I just use the quick menu. Suppose I was a fan of the Assault class that round...L1, O, down, X. DONE. 4 god damn buttons. EASY. Then I can select a spawn point that I actually want.

7)

You have to press extra buttons because you're in a more complicated spawn screen. Doy.

8)

Any veteran player wouldn't even need this step.

9)

This is a screen for those that are just learning about the weapons they JUST earned. Or if they forgot to mod their weapons prior to playing. Maybe even adding a new mod to a new gun. This isn't meant to be frustrating, it only is because you're using the wrong tool for the wrong job.

10)

I'm unsure why this is, but I would say it's to reward players for having intelligence and patience enough to understand their weapons. But I agree, it really shouldn't be hidden.

11)

Or you could use the quick menu like a big boy

12)

Should have used the quick menu ;)

13)

woah woah woah. WHAT?

This actually baffled me. BAFFLED. Is there seriously a complaint about the clarity of which the intricate maps are laid out for you in a simple HUD? You can see EVERYTHING. And it's WONDERFUL. Anyone using teamwork [HUGE PORTION OF THE DAN GAME BTW] will want to know where their team mates are, especially their squad. You can see bases and objectives so YOU HAVE A BLOODY IDEA AS TO WHERE IT IS YOUR STUPID A- ...sorry, I'll stop yelling. But you need to know where you are, a general sense of direction. The "A" - "E" objective system on the HUD is brilliant. Always letting you know generally which way to go, who commands the objective, and how far it is [if you're looking toward it]. This is also how Squad leaders function in giving commands such as "attack this objective". Try doing that with out the HUD. Sheesh.

And as long as we're on the subject, the topography of the map isn't perfect, but all you need to know is that shaded blue is somewhere where the terrain changes in a significant manner. How do you expect to signify wall vs rock? I think the map is quite fair in it's purpose.

and oy vay with the whining....Box's that move are CLEARLY people. If they blink, that means they want whatever is blinking. If it's a circle, that means there's a pack of it there. Simple. Holy crap.

14)

Green is squad, blue is team, red is enemy. I've never encountered "yellow/green" or "pale orange". Something is obviously wrong with this kids screen/monitor

15)

You died, you get the kill-cam, esque treatment. There are penalties for dying. That's how the game is played lol. Also, this prevents instant-squad spawn backs. Cause heaven forbid we give you another thing to whine about.

16)

Now I think this kid's TV is really jank, cause I've never in my life had this issue. Granted I play on a 40 inch HD flat screen. I'm thinking this kid just needs glasses.

17)

yeah I don't know why the music is depressing when you win, and celebratory when you lose lol

18)

I enjoy the K/D menu, though an exit function would be GREATLY appreciated. I don't feel like there's really enough time between rounds to really mod out your guns though....

19)

rofl, in my day we waited up to 5 minutes for a level to load. And we were playing on a Playstation 1, with no internet connection haha. Half a minute to load an intense map like Battlefield offers is a godsend. I demand this kid tries to play ANY retro game. Preferably Half-Life.

20)

Those 30 seconds are given to you to choose a spawn point, discuss strategy and mod your classes/guns. WHY ARE YOU COMPLAINING WHEN THE GAME IS GIVING YOU WHAT YOU WANTED 2 PANELS AGO

21)

I was annoyed by the hand waving at first, but then I realized it's because I was dying too often. I die less than 8 times/round on a bad day unless I'm goofing around with vehicles now. It doesn't really bother me anymore lol.

 

"EXTRA"

it's called "Assault" because it's an assault class, not a medic class. You can swap out the medpacs for grenade launchers if you truly wish. It's an assault because their weapons are the most versatile, they have the strongest 'push' factor, and they can hold lines. You can play medical assistant, sure, but that's all part of the push. You try taking the Ticket Hall as the US in Metro without a few med-pacs lying around. Go ahead. Try it. I've seen some people use the M320 very well in that situation, but that's just further proof that the 'push' class is called ASSAULT for a reason. Certainly can't assault an objective with a squad of engineers [results in a strong push for a few seconds, then it's just a blood bath from my experience]

 

This took about 20 minutes to create. Feel free to debate anything I've said :P

Have a picture of a few games that I did really well on, hopefully you all don't mind me bragging a little.

[hide=]

One of two good games with tanks I'll be posting.

e1dcee.png

First full game with the DAO-12 with frag rounds. Only time I use this gun is on Grand Bizzar. I use extended mage and a IR scope on it. Very deadly at medium range if used correctly.

105qkqr.png

Best game ever with a tank.

Noshar Canals with a T-90 is amazing. Started out the game going to the container area and shot a small patrol boat with the tank. I destroyed the 2 other AAV-7A1 AMTRAC's and then dealt with the choppers. For the most part they left us alone, but eventually the started tageting me. my gunner had the lCITV Station, so I was able to target choopers with my guided missles. But this wasn't enough. Chopper came in low to attack B, I shot it down with my main cannon. Never felt so happy in my life playing BF3. Sad? Maybe but worth it :thumbup:

clip 2 (24 secs in) the guy spawns on top of heli and gets thrown off, miles away. anyone think this would be usefull at the start of the round if its easy to aim where you wana go. you could get to mcoms/flags so fast

 

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pInXepAlmoQ

 

hahaha that was pretty funny [the rest of the video that is]. 0:24 has happened to me a couple times, but if you hit anything solid, you die upon impact so there's no real advantage to be taken. Someone was talking about it a couple pages ago where if you prone on top of a tank, you can be shot off like a cannon, but again...not very useful.

Finally getting back into the groove. Got to rank 32, and got my first service star for support. Now working on recon, with no sinper rife use. I am the WORSE sniper ever. I prefer CQB, and that is what Im best at. I might use the M98B once I get it, but as of now guns I am using is the PDW-R and the DAO-12 for recon.

I wish they would implement a weapons stats page, like they had in BFBC2. Would be great to know how many kills I've had with each gun, instead of having to guesstimate via unlocks.

 

Also, has anyone even gotten a suppression ribbon, let alone a medal or the dogtags?

Get an EA/Origin account so you can check your stats on battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/.

 

Also, I've gotten the suppression ribbon twice, but it's pretty hard to get. Especially considering you have to miss your shots to get it which seems kinda backwards.

Battle log is a really great site to use, just like Over just said.

And no. I think one game I remember counting like 5 cause I wanted to get the MG36 so I actually tried to get suppression assist.

EDIT:

THIS is amazing. I really wish I could hook up with someone and try this. I am slowly getting better with jets so who knows...

I've gotten every ribbon at least once. I'd say Suppression and Stationary are the hardest to get, followed by melee

 

And you can look up your individual gun stats on battle log, as was mentioned, but worth retelling.

I understand you can look on the internet, but it seems like the sort of thing that should've been included in the actual game to begin with. Half the time I'm playing at night, and cbf to go to the computer. I need Suppression, and MCOM attack and defender ribbons, and then I'll have them all. Stationary is very easy to get if you play conquest on any map with jets/helicopters, such as Kharg Island, or Op. Firestorm. Just stay in the Anti-Air gun in the spawn and shoot down aircraft. Easy points for any class you want to level.

Forgot, another tip to get very easy stationary kills is to play Kharg Island rush, and be on the US side. Make your way up to the AA gun at the end of the runway, and you have a clear view of the entire first base. Granted, you'll be shooting at ants, but I guarantee you'll get some kills. I got a 687m headshot with an AA gun before as well.

I really am about to quit this game. It's because of issues with it, but the fact that I am just THAT BAD at it. I have no idea why I am playing like I am...but when I have games where I just don't do anything productive ever make me feel like I am wasting my time. I had a stretch of 4 days where I was on top of the world, now I can't even see the world anymore. There is a difference between a few bad games or even a streak of bad games, but this is just stupid how bad I am playing.

So after taking a chill pill, I finally figured out why I was playing like shit. I got a new wired controller a few days ago. When I started to use it it reset my control functions, and I wasn't happy with it. So I returned it, but I didn't realize how much it messed with the sensitivity on my controller. Most people I know player with their sensitivity at 50% or more. I actually play mine at around 35%. Can not tell you how much of a difference it made for me. I went from total shit to at least competitive after the switch.

 

Almost level 35, warrant officer ranks. Kinda happy to almost be an officer.

Its not stalling, its trying to go in VTOL mode so you can glide over things. I hate the F-35 though, against the Su-35, I feel like the SU-35 wins.

 

Anyone else find it fun when you can hit a jet with a Tank shell? Done it 3 times already and finding it pretty funny, yet its happen to me once :c

I have a few times, although only once have had the pilot die on impact, which is pretty stupid.

 

Is anyone else having trouble finding servers on xbox, or is it just me?

 

Super mega extreme edit: Couldn't get the server browser to work, so I just went into quick match and got placed into normal-core Noshahr Canals Rush, defending. Nobody was using the AA gun, so I hop in. We get pushed back to the end, but manage to win, and this is the end result. All kills were with the Tunguska.

 

27a37c33.jpg

25k points without a single medal, and two unlocks (air radar and thermal optics) for the Mobile AA. :thumbsup:

 

The one death was from someone sneaking up behind me and using C4. Other than that, I had about two rockets hit me the entire game from the enemy team, and one attempted suicide-crash by a Huey. Many rage messages were sent.

 

It seems to me like players in Normal mode aren't as skilled as those in Hardcore. In hardcore, there is no way that score could have happend, unless I had dedicated engineers. Nobody really even tried to kill me in Normal. The closest I came was when the Huey was shooting me, killed it, then the Littlebird suddenly landed behind me and two guys got out (killed all of them though) to try and get me. But otherwise they just fed me kills.
