      this game won't even be HD? I find that hard to believe, aren't all games 720p+ nowadays?

      Many of the console versions of games out there run native at lower resolutions and are upscaled by the console ( Halo 3(640p) , Modern Warfare 2 and 3 (600p))

      Battlefield 3 on the consoles is supposed to run native 1280x720p @ 30fps.

      So, they basically removed the two things I used to do in BF2: Commander mode and Medic...

      also, the Console version seems so pared down and I don't know if my gaming rig can handle this game

      also, I read that it's that ridiculous "Cover to heal" mechanism of all the modern awful FPS games... so what's the point of a medic? just resus?

      also, with campers, as the Commander you could artillery them.

      Since BF3's classes are close to BC1/2's I'm assuming you guys didn't play the Bad Company games then? There are campers for sure but plenty of aggressive play as well.

      Medic is still needed because there is no self healing in hardcore mode. Even in regular core mode where there is self healing, the med packs help keep your team alive longer so a medic is in no way just needed for reviving.

      No. I've only been playing BF2 since it came out. I never liked the 'regular' FPS games. I liked the BIGNESS of BF2.

      The only one that really bothers me is the merging of assault and medic. That doesnt make sense to me. Engineer/anti-tank sure, but medic/assault?

      I would've sworn that there wasn't regenerative healing in the Alpha. IIRC, if you have like 10 hp left, you vision is all blurry and will still like that till you get a medpack.

      The classes in BF3 are exactly how they are from 2142. Assault will always have the defib but has the choice between a health box or an underslung GL with either explosive, buckshot, or slug rounds.

      Anti tank is of course the engineers' specialty with rockets and drills though support now has the ability to use C4 so that is quite anti tank as well.

      In bad company 2 health would regen after 6 seconds of not taking damage at 3 health per second. In the alpha it seemed like the regen was very similar but I never timed it out. Still not a whole lot of regen going on and makes the med packs completely worth it.

      so with the aircraft will there be the chance for some dogfights as well during matches?

      i was just thinking today how much i missed Warhawk with the ability to have a dog fight then grab a tank and take a flag and onto an anti aircraft gun to shoot the guy that just stole your jet

      Alpha does not have regen healing. The full version will not have regen also.

      64 player matches were pretty nuts on bf2. I'm sure they will be just as good if not better in bf3. I am more excited about this game than any other game released. I had hundreds of hours logged on bf2.

      I watched a vlog on Youtube (sorry no link), where they mentioned stuff they found out when they were out at Gamescon.

      The Jets will be able to dogfight. They will spawn in the teams spawn, and according to this vlog you can choose to spawn in the jet. Also noted you can climb as high as you want but the higher you go the more you lose the ability to control the aircraft. You only get so many rockets (I think he said 8).

      Helicopters will not be able to hover.

      Also you can now run your character and strafe at the same time.

      So flying over the home base air strip will not reload jets' ammo?

      You have to land the jet to resupply.

      I'm pretty sure it was DCRU Colin. Search him on Youtube who posted the video yesterday.

      what kind of helos though?
      in BF2 you had troop transports and 'hovering' was one of the things you did to clear an LZ and set people off...

      I just don't understand 'no hovering'
      I mean... it's a ****ing helicopter... that's what they do
      Plus, if you're good, you can just shoot the ****er down if he's 'hover camping'

    25. 08-25-2011 02:22 PM #375
      from my experience (and myself included) getting the thing to hover should be one of the last things anyone has to worry about

      i remember when bc2 came out and in bc1 all the helicopters that would just crash into the ground because people could not fly them. Some where funny and others were annoying because it wasted a good vehicle.

      i did finally get the hang of them and could do some damage - atleast in bc1
      Never played bc2 that much - could not get into it

      "Hovering" in an attack chopper was essential in clearing buildings on maps such as Sharqui and Kurba Dam. If people couldn't fly choppers in BC, they may have had an easier time by decreasing the sensitivity of the controls. I found flying choppers fairly easy.

      I wonder if we all joined together and called a place to purchase this game if they would give up a group discount similar to Costco..

      Worth a try!
      What is something you learned last year that you are going to do differently this year?
