      It's a bit sad how excited I am. I'm embarrassed.

      That would be nice. Seems like no one knows for sure what time it updates. Even sony.

      Oh damn, didn't know about delays! I have crap to do after work today, so I probably won't be able to play until tomorrow

      Videos on youtube looking pretty rad. AC-130 gunner positions look like face rapage on games like Rush.

      From what I've read, the consensus is that it's a death trap. It can be downed by a mediocre jet pilot, with one run of rocket pods finished by a burst of machine gun fire.

      Wow, that's the direct opposite that I heard. Anyways, I guess we'll see for ourselves

      Stuff after work got cancelled so I'll be logging on in about an hour or so to start the DL.

      it wasn't live as of an hour ago

      I upgraded my 40gb hdd to 160gb i had laying around. GT5 and all the updates took 1.5 hours alone, not including the installing of the game files, etc.. And someone on the GT forums was complaining about the 1.5gb updates to BF3

      Been playing this new patch and the surface to air missile change / below radar removal / gunner flare removal has completely changed Chopper play. Holy crap its difficult to fly longer than a few seconds. This is going to make AK a headache for chopper lovers like myself.

      Yup, they completely killed the Attack chopper. Took flares from gunner and now it is impossible to get anywhere near infantry.

      While I can agree that the igla/stinger was useless before, it is now too powerful and with a super fast reload. I don't understand why they had to mess with the chopper. It was already impossible to fly with a good jet pilot around, now you can't even provide ground cover without getting slaughtered.

      Im kinda glad they make it weaker.. I stopped playing the game because they were impossible to take out from the ground... It was annoying to not even be able to move on foot
      And you could never get in the chooper becuase they never died..

      I never had a problem downing them. Sight, lock, hold and wait for flair, count to 2, launch and hit. Reload and shoot. Chopper down.

      When the enemy team has their act together, it was hard enough to stay alive in the attack heli. Especially on maps like Wake Island where you have jets, the enemy heli, the AA, and every HMG on every vehicle pointed at you reliably every time you take off. Now it sounds like DICE just made it into a newb trap. Good on you DICE. DIAF.

      Maybe ive juat delt with really good pilots or really ****ty teams

      I dunno.. Anytime i tried locking on either got jammed or flared.
      If i waited for the flare lock on again and shot then another flare would be let off

      I'm loving these maps, especially almoraz mtn. (the snow map).

      Weren't there supposed to be dirt bikes as well on AK? I could have sworn I remember reading that a few months back.

      Freakin awesome conquest map. It makes up for the "largest map ever" Bandar Desert which i think is kind of a let down. Im still uncertain with how I feel about Tank Superiority. It's basically capture the flag, with one flag... doesn't matter if you are in a tank or not. It's also way too extremely easy for one team to capture the flag, and sit on it with all vehicles/personnel for entire round. It's basically glorified spawn base trapping. I thought it was going to be where only vehicles could cap the flag and the range of the flag area would be expansive... they are literally the size of close quarters flag areas.

      Also, it seems to be EXTREMELY buggy and glitchy. I know this is with any release, but wow... some servers have no mics, guns/rockets have no reload animation, graphics get screwed or don't even show up (octagon shaped quad tires lol), graphics lag while in jet/chopper moving fast.

      I will say, I love the two new vehicle classes the tank destroyer and mobile artillery. The AC-130 is a death trap if you don't have any friends in jets/choppers knocking things off of your back.

      I haven't had a problem with bugs our glitches really. Im with you about TS, but I think it's better suited for certain maps, like amaroz. All the elevation changes make it much funner and easy to set up a soflam to put some pressure on the enemy.

      I kind of like the weaker choppers. Jets only get 1 flare why should choppers get 2? It was frustrating as hell if you had a pilot and gunner communicating. Impossible to down them. IMO, they should make the chopper weapons a bit stronger to make up for the fact that people aren't going to be sitting in them the entire game.

      Anyone use the main gun on the ac-130? It's pretty weak imo. almost no splash damage.

      IMO, the changes they made have made the game more exciting and chaotic. There seems to be more action. I like that the manpads have been buffed up a little.

      Jets can also break out of range in seconds, choppers can't. It also takes the teamwork out of flying the chopper.

      Imo they need to nerf the jets some, it's becoming more often that I'm in games with level 100 jet pilots that are so good that they are controlling the ground as well as the air. The jet is the most powerful weapon in the game with the right pilot.

      I think it's a glitch or an oversight, because if you fire it at anything other than armor it does nothing. It won't even cause damage to a building.

      I have trouble understanding why they nerfed the chopper the way they did. I'm on the side that is saying it was already easy as heck to shoot down. Anytime it was designated I could just stop what I was doing and let a jav rip - almost guaranteed a kill. I've seen the missles do loopdy loops around the chopper until the ecm jammer stopped

      Liking AK so far, but was getting kicked and banned from lobbies last night for some reason. Wasn't doing anything weird, just playing like normal.

      Also, had issues getting mics to work within my squad. Not sure what that was all about.

      Anyways, hoping to get some more play time on it tonight. See if I can do better - was playing pretty poorly last night.

      Chapel, nice to know the ump45 is improved. That was my favorite gun in MW2.

      Yeah, and a jet that's just rammed a chopper shouldn't fly off unscathed into the sunset through a hail of ineffective AA. Jets REALLY need to be nerfed...choppers should have been left alone.

      I'm a fan of the .45ACP round... so I tend to run UMP45 and a 1911 as a Recon.

      I'll check it out again. I have my support class setup with UMP45 due to total suckage with any type of machine gun, but I haven't had much luck with it either. Rate of fire is slower than MW2, and stopping power wasn't really there.

      You would think a fully auto .45 cal would be pretty devastating

      A few us have a server that you guys are welcome to join/favorite. We only kick for ramming and spawn camping the enemy base. You should be able to find it if you search for Armored Kill Rush and mix or by my using my name.

      Spawn rape or hallway rape with bipod deployed. I don't like LMGs and always switch to the personal defense or shotty. When I do need LMG, I use PKP since I've got all unlocks trying to go after assignments.
