News Comments > BF3 Patch Notes

In a lot of cases, these changes are subtle and I wasn't feeling like my gameplay experience was broken from it.

There are much more glaring issues that I'd like to see fixed. Some are probably major enhancements and too late to fix. DICE, please make these requirements for your future games, because they really diminish the enjoyment for me and my friends!

(XBOX specific?) When friends form a matchmaking group in the main menu:
  • don't let quickmatch put them on separate teams
  • give them a server filter so they can find servers where they will be on the same team
  • don't disband the matchmaking group when they quit a server

  • For people that actually care about stats and unlocks, and who make in-game choices based on it:
  • give us a way to check all of our soldier, weapon and vehicle stats while playing the game
  • IMHO, bf:bc2 had better presentation of overall unlock progress through all the guns and gadgets

  • Better team balancing!
  • often one team has 2+ fewer people than the other for most of the game. Big disadvantage when < 12 ppl per team.
  • often find one team's players has higher ranks than the other, and consistently wins (no surprise)

  • Between games, allow leaving the server at any time, for two reasons:
  • players quit before the game is over so that they aren't forced to wait a whole minute for the next quitting opportunity
  • players that quit as soon as the next game starts could have been replaced more quickly with players that want to join the server

  • Better view of the entire level map (both when alive and when spawning)
  • hard to tell when there are unused vehicles elsewhere on the level

  • Spawning interface:
  • When a selected squad mate or location becomes unavailable for spawning, don't automatically switch the selection. I hate hitting the button and finding myself somewhere random because it automatically switched the selection moments before.

  • Random stuff that bothers me:
  • standing on a flying MAV is way unrealistic and seems like glitching. I'd rather it wasn't possible.
  • spawning people on top of a plane, instead of in the plane
  • same exact animation *every* time you die. How about just dying and staying still?

  • You can quit at any time - Alt+F4. Much faster than going through the menus, too.

    As far as dying and staying still, tangentially, I've always hoped they'd make it so you can't be revived if you died from a headshot.

    This will be just like the World of Tanks a big pay-to-win game. No thanks.

    It's not really pay to win. Yea, you can buy higher pen ammo, but the vast vast vast majority of people save that for clan battles, where gold is handed out anyways. There is absolutely no reason to use gold ammo in a random battle.

    As far as tank purchases, the tanks are mostly underpowered for their tier. KV5, Lowe, and Type 59 (the most common paid tanks) are all outclassed at their tier by other tanks in performance.

    Konami and Capcom are both showing doubts about Sony's future in console gaming.

    If I had a teenager I bet they'd rather have an IPAD than a PS Vita too.

    Wow, I never thought I'd live to see Sony on the decline but here we are.

    I had a Sony no-skip cd player that I used to run with and lost 80 lbs. I loved that cd player. I hope Sony finds something new/cool that I can enjoy again.

    Going multiconsole means more money. Has nothing to do with the downfall of Sony. If you want to produce titles like MGS4, which was ridiculously expensive, you need access to the broadest base possible, and that means crossplatform gaming.

    That said, MGS4 took up the whole bluray disk. Unless they plan to revive HDDVD for 360, this will need a real download option. A 5 DVD game would be awfully inefficient. Unless, of course, this is for the 720 and the PS4.

    At best you'll get something like Chuck Yeager's Air Combat, at worst like Ace Combat or Battlefield. Don't expect a DCS game.

    I think Notch's problem is that he's an unintended celebrity, and he doesn't know what that means. He wasn't chasing fame, but it landed in his lap nonetheless, and he has no idea how to handle it. It would behoove him to spend an hour or two talking with a PR person on how he should handle himself publicly.

    There's a reason when big celebrities do something boneheaded, that a "representative speaking on behalf of" them makes their public apology/statement/whatever. It's way too easy to mess that kind of thing up.

    Exactly. Not to mention half of what he says either makes him look like a tool or an arrogant dick, and I still say the guy is a liar about a great many things. It's like Molyneux. He finally started getting into actionable territory with his BS he was constantly spewing which is why EA assigned him handlers and rightfully so. If you're in a position where the public are going to hear what you're saying on a larger scale than either shut-up or learn how to conduct yourself. I really don't like this guy and I'm far from alone on this.

    Who exactly do you like?

    I'm betting on Romero

    DICE has shown that they've become one of the worst developers in terms of communication with community, it's become pathetic but not something we should be surprised by.

    We were supposed to hear about a new DLC last week, nothing. We were told a real patch would be dropping in February, still nothing or no news. Battlefield 3, as much of a technical marvel that it is, is EASILY the most disappointing game in the series, much much more so than Bad Company games.

    I'm sure I'm not alone when saying BF3 will be the last DICE game I've purchased. I'm expecting we'll hear an announcement about Battlefield 2143 and how DICE will be working on Medal of Honor 2 long before we hear anything about the new DLC/new content.

    Good job destroying your brand and alienating your community DICE, at least you guys are still efficient at something

    I guess the question is when has DICE ever been good at communicating with the community? As far as I know, they never have been.

    This graphic tweak really helps make the games graphics not look like ass.

    The difference between the default muddy/blurry graphics and the sharper effect offered with this mini mod is night and day.

    I was never a huge Diablo fan but it seems like they made changes to the way Diablo II was setup just for the sake of trying to be "different". Why piss in the soup and not just serve up the same soup with slightly better looking visuals.

    Wait, they're using DX9? Jesus Christ. Is it still 2003?

    Stab die console scum

    Might have more to do with 3rd person being more suitable for lightsaber combat than with consoles, DummyDawg.

    Indeed, no one was bitching about console scum in the Jedi Academy days

    I like the idea, and I like the look, but it looks a little too twitchy. It doesn't seem to have the lumbering, walking tank feel, or the careful maneuvering that mech games are known for. It looks almost like Quake with a cockpit.

    This is my concern too. It does look neat, but I was hoping for something a bit more... giant robot-ey.

    Think Armored Core or Virtua-On. There are precedents.

    oh yes the memories.

    or getting trained in Velketors. : P

    Haha, trains in Karnors Castle were the worst. And with my enchanter I controlled each and everyone, so that I actually hoped for one and told my group everytime to pull one. It was epic. Too bad they changed this game too much.

    Rookies. I was training in Castle Mistmoore while you were in diapers.

    Play on servers with active admins. It's been this way since at least NetQuake. Of course, part of the problem is that EA/DICE don't give you the same administrator and modification options as Quake derived games, but c'est la vie.

    The Futureweapons billboards in BF2142 didn't bother me at all. EVE has has a similar concept(billboards at stargates), but they front fake ingame products and news. If they're forced interactive ads then I would have a real problem.

    Apple and all those companies are proof that we need to eliminate free trade and get back to fair trade - i.e. tariffs. Reading articles like that just makes me angry on so many levels. And the saddest part is when you get these right-wing dingbats chiming in about how the problem is working people actually asking for a living wage and not their corporate masters raking in obscene amounts of profits at the expense of them and the environment. This exactly the sort of shit that makes me see the world as moving to the cold, dark, dystopian future instead of a bright and sunny one. And why is that? Because the pigs who support these companies are more concerned with the latest toy than doing what's right. Well, they're all going to work up broke, hungry, and cold sooner than later.

    Unless you're willing to support unlimited immigration of skilled labor, your proposal would condemn the developing world to pretty much perpetual poverty, as there would be no clear path to doing anything other than menial labor and subsistence agriculture. Way to go.

    Why is that our problem? Globalization is killing our economy. If you can't take care of yourself, you can't take care of the homeless guy either.
