      64 player conquest on Grand Bazarr is great for leveling up. I am trying hard to get to lvl 44, simply because I want to snipe people with the scoped .44 that you get.

      I had a crazy match the other night:
      http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3...9/1/363314136/

      Dunno if you can see it or not, but I ended up with a score of over 25,000 for a single match. Most of that came from resupplys. It was nuts.

      anybody have any issues with using the mortor and then getting killed WHILE using it? it locks up the game on me (i think). i won't respawn, and when i try and commit suicide nothing happens. it just sits there with the mortor screen up

      I left this at my friend's place in Morgantown last time I was there. That was actually the first time I got to sit down and play for a bit. I have to say, they keep making it harder to be a sniper. Access to higher up spots that would be perfect for sniping is getting slimmer and slimmer. I've seen some places that would make perfect perches with no access other than hijacking a copter with the intent to dump it mid air and try and parachute to a vantage point. That really sucks as I love sniping and in BF:BC and BF:BC2 could pull off some crazy far shots.

      I was awesome at sniping in BC2 and I thought the same thing, but I've spent some time with recon now and I have gotten really good at sniping and more importantly controlling my parachute. I was definitely dissapointed when they stopped MAV riding. It really brought a new element top the game.

      Okay.. I think I played against some glitchers or something.. they had 0% health and killed me.. I was pissed that I did a point blank shot with the .44 mag in their chest and they killed me with 0%... now I'm going out on a limb here and calling shenanigans.. 0% health is dead, right? 1% is still alive and 0% means your health is gone, no more, obliterated, nonexistent, perished, etc. or is there some bull**** fraction/decimal health crap I'm not aware of.


      Also note to self, do not use 12x scope while under 20m from enemies.

      No, believe it or not, you can be alive at 0%. You don't die until you go below 0. It's happened to me a couple of times. Lucky scrapes, I guess.

      definitely possible to be alive at 0%. the game actually uses 2 decimal places that we generally don't see. so they could have 0.56% and be alive. heck, I've had 0% before and been alive. it's rare but it does happen.

      Yeah definitely the case but his health must have been .49 or lower because .5 and above gets rounded up and displayed as 1%

      On PS3. It says it in the top right corner, this is not happening though? I'm confused.

      It has to do with the collision detection in the game.
      If you play such games, you know that things like legs (when laying down) and guns can poke through walls.
      Well, some players check every nook and cranny in the level to see if by jumping up to an unintended location, getting out of a vehicle next to an object, getting pushed around by added object (vehicles), or by laying down moving around and standing up if they can clip the scenery to the the side.
      So it usually involves using an animation sequence (getting up, jumping, getting out of vehicle, crawling under stuff) to try and clip the scenery at some found location.
      And once such glitches are found- they usually spread like a virus through the internet forums because the only way to deal with glitchers is to go in after them using he same glitch (which completely ruins games).

      Here is an example in BF2 PS2



      As you can tell- some gamers love spending hours and hours on the maps trying to find such glitch locations.

      That sort of glitching will never be as widespread as it was on the ps2 version simply because it offers ZERO advantage. In the ps2 version you would be able to shoot out of the walls and actually get kills while being completely immune to enemy fire. On the ps3 version all you can do is run around back there. You can shoot all you like but none of the bullets actually get passed the walls so nobody is racking up any cheap kills -- that alone ensures that it will never become popular. Matter of fact that glitch on that map has been known since right around the release of the game and it has not been an issue at all so far.

      That's good to know (I did not buy the game until much later fwiw).
      I remember something about using sniper rifles so the end of the gun and the sight- would be past the wall so you could see and kill.
      If they fixed that past bug, then this isn't such a big deal.
      Still, it seemed like they were spawning in there and getting out- which is an issue imo.

      Back in counter strike days you could walk in the sky and shoot people down.

      Meh, when I counter hacks, glitchers, I just quit and find a better game.

      Had probably my best match ever today, was at like 49-11 and around 15k points on Seine. Would have been mvp and got a **** ton of ribbons and medals with double xp probably could have been around 50 k, but I magically lost connection with EA servers with only 40 tickets left. SOB. I hate this ducking game.

      no idea.. but extended ticket Conquest is the best.. especially on Metro...claymores on the escalators is the most hilarious thing ever.
