Starting a new thread JUST for BF3 Beta discussion. Anything related to what you think of it, known bugs, and any problems you may have playing it.

Myself and Phantom got it over-night, and fired it up this morning for a few hours.

Personally, I found it a bit frustrating at first, but it's growing on me quickly. The graphics are better than indicated, and the bugs are generally quite few.

However, that being said... the hit registration definitely needs a bit of a tweak (Being shot in cover quite badly), and the collision detection when moving past allies is rather flawed. You will often find yourself "catching" on other players, especially when trying to move through a door where some newbie has sit his big fat arse in the way.

The only fail is not with the game, but with Battlelog. And it fails badly. Sure, you can find servers easily, but connecting to one can be slow, and often fails for numerous random reasons. Phantom spent over 15mins trying to connect to a server.

PS: Even if you added friend on Origin, you have to login to Battlelog with your origin email/pass and add them there too, in order to connect to the game they are playing. Bah.

No, you have to edit your tags manually in your profile, on battlelog.

- Login to battlelog
- at the top, click "Profile" (next to your name)
- then click "Edit Profile" (On the left, under your soldier image, 4th option down)
- 2nd option down is "Soldier settings". You can edit your tags and image here.

Enjoy!

Doubt we allow BMP files to be attached to postings as this would require them to be uploaded with the post. They are large files with next to no compression.

There are a few things Im liking very much on Bf3 and a few things Im not liking. Having prone back is awesome. Adds much more to the game cover wise. Being able to run around with a knife in your hand without having to use the automated slash and kill mechanic is also very welcome. I also noticed you can run around whilst carrying either your ammo or health packs is good without having to drop them on the ground and risk giving away your position although Im still not sure if u can heal or resupply someone whilst doing this like you could in Bf2 and 2142. The ANT physics and being able to see your body is cool. Dog tags detail is cool too. Although wheres the single shot, semi auto shot and full auto shot selector??? This is Bf3. It shouldve been added. Oh well maybe it will be added in final release. Ammo crate graphics look terible and some of the textures and animation still need alot of work. All in all though its looking good for a Beta release.

Cycle fire mode is set to (V).I wouldn't worry about your fps yet at all it's far to early in the game.Just go with what makes the game feel the most playable.

I also noticed you cant cook the grenade or drop the grenade which is handy to be able to do. Neither can you change your throwing distance like in previous true Bf games. I also dont like having too many graphical settings. Because I can never make up my mind where to set them at lol. Metro map is very nice and large. Cant wait to see the larger 64 player maps with vehicles. Itl be soo epic once they iron out all the bugs.
Also does anyone know if any Bf3 stat signatures have come out yet. I wanna ditch the old Bc2 one in forum and also does anyone know when the logitech g15-g19 keyboard lcd applet will be out for Bf3?

I was curious, so I looked up BF3 server prices.

From battlefield3servers.com (AU Multiplay, based in Sydney)
- 24 Slot is $49 NZD a month
- 32 Slot is $65 NZD a month
- 48 Slot is $98 NZD a month
- 64 Slot is $130 NZD a month

Ouch, gettin pricey for 64 slots....

Well I'm sure we have enough $$ in the clan account to get a server, it's a large price jump from 32 onwards 48 slot looks good, anything to stay away from the on 3 un-admined servers
