When I first started playing it I felt it was worst Battlefield game I had played. But I feel that is due to the map. Metro is one of the worst FPS maps I have every seen, it is a awful map and I hope I never play it again. It is a prone/sniperfest/ call of duty map that has no place in BF.

I am stuck playing on the xbox till my new pc is ready and there are alot of bugs but the beta it seems is one month old and EA are only using it for a server stress test which explains some of the bugs. It seems there is a bug with bullet damage, which explains why you suddenly die from one shot somethings, cover is also messed up being you can be behind cover then just suddenly die.

I am enjoying it the more I play but that Map is so bad. Where are the things that make it a battlefield game, I want large maps,tanks,planes, helos. Not running down a corridor just to be sniped by a sniper hiding under a train.

I got annoyed this morning and tried the recon class and wow, the starting rifles are pretty awesome, I went 36-2 just going prone and covering the ways to the MCOM. It so easy to snipe in this game and its pretty hard for the enemy to flush a sniper out.

yeah, the Map they chose for the beta was done on purpose to be a very CoD like map, to try and attract that crowd into buying the game, as they feel they will get most BF fans to buy the game anyways.

Ill tell you now, I have played caspian border while they had it out on passed servers, it was AMAZING.

Well, Origin alone is bad enough to put me off buying the game for the forseeable future.

I beta tested Steam and have no intention of repeating that shitshow. Valve took three years to fix it with a dedicated team behind it. I can see Origin taking at least that long.
Maybe I still just feel jaded because of the old EA downloader, but we all know how well that worked.

origin is not as bad as steam when steam first came out, BUT, origin is still...

my major problem would be if BF3 keeps a forced browser and origin required to be up to play, THAT would be an issue, more for the massive unneeded processing excess from that.

There are flesh-eating diseases less horrible to contract than release Steam, though.

That said, I highly doubt Origin will ever evolve beyond 'mildly antagonistic', unlike Steam's current status of 'FUCK YES, AREN'T YOU HAPPY MY VISION WAS FINALLY REALIZED?!'.

Am I the only one who believes that it is a bad move to get all the COD players over?

I know from a business perspective its a good move to ship more of its product but I really don't want my BF3 experiance ruined by COD jerks who just run around having no notion of the words "teamwork" and "run around using snipers or lying prone on the floor herpa derpa!"


I have recently started a new Blog. I would really appreciate it if you would LOOK AT IT

Been reading a few forums and there are quite a few COD players saying they did not like previous Battlefield games as the maps where to big and there was not enough action. But after playing Metro they have decided to buy BF3.
I really hope there are no more maps like Metro in BF3. BF3 is the first pre-order I have every canceled but I am going to wait a month or two to see if the major bugs,lag and client side hit diction are fixed.

I do feel its wrong trying to win over the COD games, why do all games have to be similar . I went back to play BF:BC2 today and it feels so much better than BF3.

As a fan of both series (yes, both equally) I have no problem with the mixing of the two. People have this idiotic impression that if someone plays CoD then they are a 13 year old moron who loves nothing more than the K-D ratio but that is not the case. The are just as many CoD players (like myself) who are totally into teamwork and objective based play. On the flip side there were always BF players who were nothing but kill/sniper/loner whores as well so everyone bitching about CoD'ers needs to get off their high fuckin' horse. Gamers are gamers regardless of what the actual game being played is.

Previous BF games were a fair bit harder to get into for the younger crowd and I think you will see the same thing here. They will buy BF3, find out how much harder to play it is on the full scale maps and leave. The Battlefield games are without a doubt far more team oriented and winning requires you to play in that mindset so the run and gunners and the K/D whores will tire of it quickly.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Beginners guide to the starting area for metro:


Hope this helps.

Really, despite the fact that the xbox version is a giant fucking mess, the game is brilliant.
