Battlefield 3 Improvements

Seven Ways Battlefield 3 is Improving on the Battlefield Blog outlines post-launch improvements for Battlefield 3, DICE's military shooter sequel. Some have already been implemented, whole some are coming in the near future. Already complete are improved QuickMatch functionality, Hardcore server availability, game stability, and lag and rubber-banding fixes. In the works are fixes for joining and remaining in squads, a default region setting in the server browser, and Origin installation and authentication issues.

Wasn't there supposed to be a 5GB release day patch. What ever happened to that?

I don't know if it was 5GB but my client patched as soon as it was installed on release day.

I've found it reasonably polished. There are a few niggles but it's in good shape. The lack of voice chat seems odd, maybe I'm doing something wrong.

I tried to bind my R mouse button to "run" in the beta but it wouldn't work.

Have they fixed the mouse and keyboard binding issues?

Yes this is fixed jonvall. I have no clue what DangerDog is on about.

I use Right-Mouse button to move forward as well, and all my controls work perfectly, including Joystick. The only exception being Q is hardcoded to Spot/Communication, but can still be bound to other things. ie: I have Q bound to reload, it just also reloads when I spot, and vice versa.

Yeah they mostly have. I read there are a couple of keys that don't rebind properly, like q for spotting, but the vast majority do.

You just have to be careful to click on the mouse column when rebinding a mouse key. That's not obvious since most games will just monitor your mouse, keyboard and controller input at the same time when you go to rebind an action.

Anyway, it's cool they're able to accomplish so much with server patches. Glad I'm not the one who has to patch every few days.

The lag and rubber-banding is pretty ridiculous most of the time, it is rare that I find a server with none. It seems to be the worst on Tehran Highway.

All that will need to be patched in the client, there hasn't been any news that I know of for the PC patch. I imagine we'll see something before Karkand expansion comes out, in December.

My quickmatch completely stopped working yesterday, I hope that wasn't the improvement they implemented.
