    hahahaha...... .....ditto. I tried it once and kept falling off. In the early days, I spawned ontop of a building and was wondering how to to get up there without spawning on my squads beacon. Then I got kicked for glitching which explains why I was looking outside of the gameworld at one point. Just to add a rant tonight: I am sick of servers implementing their own rules. Though it'd be ok if there were more populated (normal) servers around. But, it was the only full server at the time, and it was Metro (which I don't mind usually). If a weapon like the M26 is glitched, fine, ban it temporarily. But it really pisses me off to jump into a server that has "NO RPG-SMAW-USAS-M320", yet ALLOWS the M26! To top it off, I got kicked for killing with a claymore which isn't listed as being banned :P I've said this before, but I'll repeat, I like my smoke grenades....I find them really useful in helping my team push. If I kill someone with it, I should get bonus points and a medal, not a kick from admin for using a "banned" weapon :( And why ban the USAS still? Frag rounds have been nerfed on it so it hardly gets used now anyway. In the end, I got pissed off so raged with my own darts in the dying minutes. I mean, in a game of Metro, I can understand why you're doing it, but has anyone ever experienced a 64 player game of metro that DIDN'T result in a cluster fuck choke point? These weapon restrictions DO NOT WORK so why circumvent how the game was intended to be played? It truly feels like who ever runs these servers sometimes is 15yrs old. People rant on about Dice trying to turn BF into COD, but I honestly think the server owners are doing it. Putting these restrictions in place turns the game into a stat whoring, mindless team deathmatch. And that's what I saw tonight. I watched my team getting back raged numerous times cos all they were focussed on was spamming their LMGs down the lockers. Noone was paying any attention except to the little stat whoring spot they liked. I watched one guy prone at the turnstiles spamming some spot across the map, completely ignorant to the fact about 20 enemies (in total, not all at once) ran past him to get to the side/back entrance to the lockers and kill everyone in there cos they're all to oblivious. I watched on as a base behind us was neutralised, and NOONE even thought about turning around. I watched numerous enemies come up the back stairs , jump the turnstiles, and almost make it out to the Cafe....I went hunting for them after, but thought it was phenomenal to watch noone care. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- I didn't want this to get lost in the above... Question, do people play ever play with their maps maximised? I find I can't really tell what's going on when it's small. The round medic and ammo icons are too big and block the view of anything useful for me. I pretty much always play with my map expanded and it has improved my game since I started this. It's so much easier to get good situational awareness of what's going on around you. It comes in handy when you're behind cover and want to lob a grenade at someone, use the map to line up the shot. I also soemtimes just stare at someone on the map waiting for them to come out of cover. I won't even be watching the main screen, just the map. As soon as I can see him come out of cover, I start pre firing and boom, instakill. He could have thought I was hacking it was that sudden. I can't do this with the map minimised, so I wonder whether that's why I see so many people who have zero clue of what's going on around them. In general, I would check mine every few seconds while I'm playing. I think more people would too if they used it like I do. I like how people will rant about the metro only servers. Nobody makes you play on these servers, yes they are strangely enough, some of the most popular servers, and I will hop on a metro server occasionally to unlock stuff for my guns. IMHO thats all the metro only servers are good for. Its either that or you have the stat padding idiots who will spam a lmg down the lockers. You are better off playing on a server, that has a metro in its rotation, because the players will PTFO, they will play metro in a similar fashion, and metro is much more tolerable. But to hop on a 2000 ticket metro only server, and not to expect a ticket booth shitfight, or spawn rape of either team, dude you must be delusional. Me, I much rather play the vehicle maps, variety being the spice of life and all that. I dont be play with the map expanded, but Ive changed it to hybrid view, and only ever glance at it. Basically I use it for cues as to where the enemy may be. the hybrid view helps as it includes some terrain, and gives u a much more clearer view where they may be. Because I play with a team on the CG ladder, the ruleset also includes, no 3D spotting, no 3d tags, amongst other settings, so we setup our server as such. So you are kinda forced to play and rely on the map to assist in finding spotted enemies.

    as someone who has sunk a lot of hours (maybe too much!) to get to Colonel lvl 50, I have no issue with this. In fact I would go so far to say, that having done the grind with most of the guns, I understand the nuances of each gun and actually I have a specific weapon loadout for each map.

    Bringing back [AC-DC] for Battlefield 3?

    I know our clan admin use this to kick non members off our servers when we need slots. http://phogue.net/procon-frostbite/ We use teamspeak to request slots so its pretty good.

  9. I had a feeling that was gonna be the case, just wasn't 100 percent sure.
  10. Long story short, Ive finally found a buyer for my reference xfx 5970, one of my clanmates has a sapphire 5970 4gb toxic edition. The reference card i have is only 2gb. He shouldnt have too many dramas crossfiring them? Lets not discuss power and cooling issues just yet.... I have pointed this out, he plans on water cooling em. I know the general rule of thumb when doing this is to, at the very least keep it in the family :P

    lol it may have been a bit of a recon fest, but 10 percent of those were actually decent shots :P besides you watch em run when you roll up in a tank...... no more c4 bitches! or mortar strike for that matter

    hahah yeah the amount of times I've nailed a hovering chopper with the tank main cannon during the beta is ridiculous. Once I'd unlocked the coaxial hmg id spam the cockpit with it and on occasion kill the pilot, and then follow up with a round from the main gun. :D lots of fun Only annoying thing is, a wire fence is capable of stopping a 120mm shell, yet if i shoot at a 'dorito' behind a fence i get a kill with about 2 bullets from my pistol!

    im pretty sure you can only equip aa missiles or atg missiles. Not both. I've used the aa tank with awesome results as well. They make very short work of the choppers. especially once you unlock the surface to air missiles for it too. That coupled with a few guys with stingers, you can make life in the air rather difficult. There is always a counter. If rumour is to be believed, the at4 makes its return, which if its anything like its bc2 counterpart was effective against tanks as well as choppers. Its a bit of an artform really :D http://www.youtube.com/watch?src_vid=i2cFO...notation_640156 Im not as good, but if the pilot flies with some degree of predictability, I can get em most of the time, even a clip to the tail is enough to take it out of commission.

    Well a decent jet pilot should be able to take out a chopper in a single pass, and in some instances, not even use the heatseekers, just a burst from the cannon. if one of the mods could kindly embed this, do the jets actually contribute to the match in a constructive way though? like I only ever had my tank blown up (annoyingly) by the super overpowered helicopters everytime it would only take a single pass to have your tank turned into molten metal...
