Yea that guy from the video basically describes everything i hate about this patch
See how many stinger rockets he fires? like holy **** wtf the flares are always off cooldown by the time you can shoot another why nerf the stingers...
SCAR nerf is just stupid, the whole point of the SCAR has always been to trade clip size for damage, now you get a ****** clip size and that's about it, if i play again i'll definitely go back to the A-91
My FPS went to **** since the patch, i have these weird lags, feels like mouse lag or something, the mouse gets ''stuck'' and it's kinda hard to move around, forget about winning a 1v1 CQC
Oh that and of course the fact they didn't even deliver on 99% of their promises
Oh and i'm pretty sure they didn't nerf the mobile AAs
There's so much more in this game than being able to take a gun and kill people with it, if it's not your cup of tea and can't be bothered to practice to get better at it, find something else to be a credit to your team
As for me well, i think i'm just gonna fly the chopper now, with the nerfs on the stinger they made the choppers even stronger
Ok now for some reason when i go to play the game keeps reverting to windowed mode. I click on the screen to play and it skips back to windowed mode. Can't even get to the options menu to change my window mode to windowed. Seems like the BF3 window just won't keep the focus. WTF DICE!!!
Started playing some conquest, but I'm terrible at playing the vehicles. Felt a bit inferior playing infantry at times there, tbh. I like rushing, but I'm not really into the Rush mode where enemies know where you're coming from, plus there are a ton of campers making rushing moot. Figured squad deathmatch would be great.. if I had two or three mates playing. So I've played mostly deathmatch where you play for yourself and I love it. 12v12 deathmatch is perfect and never gets boring.
They've made the game much better for us playing rifles and the balance is generally terrific. I've played Recon, Medic, Engineer and have had similar progress playing with every one of them. The scopes and overall damage, even on range, feels much better and balanced compared to bf2. You modify every weapon with the scopes and perks that suits your game which is good. Used to be hovering around a 1.1 k/d ratio in bf2 and bf2bc, in bf3 I'm up to 1.6 trending upwards.
How would you know if the stinger got nerfed, it was 100% ineffective before the patch, how could you see it get worse?
I've gotten a good number of kills and many more Vehicle Disable points just by waiting. A lot of times the pilots will release the flares while I have a lock before I fire the missile, and that usually gives me time to get another lock and fire before their flares reload.
Sometimes when I'm out of rockets I like to lock onto them and watch them scramble to get away, it can give the pilots on my team a chance to get the upper hand if they're in a dog fight. One round when we were already winning handilly I held a lock on a chopper for upwards of a minute before they crashed from constantly climbing and descending trying to get away from me
I haven't tried using them since the patch though.
