I figured I would start this thread to see what you guys had to say about the newest bf3 patch. I myself am pleased with it at this point, loving the new rent a server and all the option you have now, although there are a couple of things they could work on i feel, like the sniper kit, i feel like i,m shooting potatoes out of my gun and the mortar in support can be difficult to deploy but there seems to be more pluses than anything with the new patch for me anyways. LETS HEAR WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY ABOUT IT, POST, POST, POST AWAY!!!

I have not played every class or many different weapons since the patch, but can comment on what I have noticed so far.

SNIPER SUPPRESSOR....

I had the suppressor on my M98B sniper and shooting from the carrier on the map that is at the container area. I had not played the game in a while and noticed I had a hard time hitting guys in one area just past a railroad bridge, I remembered shooting under the bridge and hitting guys well on the other side of it. But after being off for a while and with suppressor attached I noticed I was having a hard time hitting the guys without hitting the bridge, I had to give a lot of elevation to get the round to target the the elevation gives a big arc that often meant I am hitting the bridge rather than getting under it. I took the suppressor off and no longer had any issue. I noticed that with the 12x scope, with no suppressor I could aim with the frist notch under the main cross hair, but with suppressor I needed to go down to almost the 3rd mark below.

Looks like the suppressor totally changes up your bullet travel arc and by alot!, But I do not mind as it now seems to have a nice balance, you have to choose, quiet and off the radar, or more power and accuracy.


TANKS & REPAIR TOOL

Wow, So they did changes to both of these, changing one or the other would have been fine to balance things out, but they may have unintentionaly over did it.

When you run a tank you usually play as an engineer so you can do your own repairs.

So what they did is really weaken the tanks armor, it feels very thin now, I would say a little too weak, something else they did was to make the repair tool slower, quite a bit slower. Not a big deal in itself but when you combine the two, its just way too much of a dumbing down of the two which I consider 1 as they go together. I would prefer they weaken the tank and leave the repair tool alone, or beef up the tank and make the repair tool much slower to repair. But now I feel like I am driving around in a cardboard box and a needle and thread to try to do repairs on it. I think i read somewhere recently that the developers were saying they think they may have over done the tank nurfing so maybe it will get adjusted.

Q

I like what they did with the interface for the Q button on PC, Not sure if it is the same on your consoles, where you hold it down and some commands come up like "NEED PICKUP", they finely added one that I had asked for which is "NEED AMMO".


STILL MISSING...

Some things that I was hoping they would have fixed but are still not here are.

Easy one click vote kick system, as it is now, you have to open console command, typen in a dang line of text and do it just right, then every person that votes has to do the same, most people can not figure it out or do not notice there is a vote going on, so the guy pissing the whole server off never gets kicked. They need to have it so you can go to player list, hover over it and click VOTE KICK in a popup. Then everyone in game gets a little notice at bottom of screen that says "xxxx has initiated votekick against xxxxx for (REASON)" then each player only has to pres Y or N to enter their vote.


The other thing I have been asking for is a range finder built into sniper scopes. Just a little text of numbers somewhere in the scope that tells you the distance to the target your cross hairs are on. I would Love this!


One more thing I would really like..
I love to car bomb on some maps, just think it is lame that I have to get out of vehicle to set off the bomb, I would like to see them add some way to be able to detonate my car bomb while still in it. Also where are the usable civilian vehicles like we had in BF2? They make much cooler car bombs.

i agree with you on all, we have something similar on our consoles for your Q button for making orders or asking for pickup an such ours is the select button on the controller,and yes more civilian vehicles like bc2 would be wonderful.and the voting to kick someone would be wonderful great idea. i had to kick a couple people last night and all i could do is send them a message explaining why and go to the server menu and then kick them, an auto text like you talk about would great and people would be able to vote for it like you said.

Yeh the sniper kit has really changed it up on the 360. It's alot harder now to get those long shots. I'm glad they got the glitch fixed with using UAV as a lift too!

Q

The Q command on the xbox 360 is totally different, you basically need to look at say a support guy and click on the back button (select) on your controller, it will then shout the command "I need ammo" or whatever, if you point at a car or heli and click the back button it asks to be picked up etc etc.

Sounds like it's alot easier on the PC now!


TANKS & REPAIRS

Yep, paper tanks.. hahaha It's good though, they were way too powerful, and with an engineer repairing them all the time you were screwed.. ahhah

Yes please.. lol.. I need this too, i have pulled off some nice shots but its hard to remember all the spots..

DEDICATED SERVERS

I love the new dedicated servers for 360.. It's exactly what the game needed.. before the update in AU there was only 1 or 2 pages of servers, now there are like 20-30.. It's great..

Oh and our 360-HQ.COM AU SERVER has been going great since opening 3 or so days ago.. Works great for our US guys and AU guys, but we will still be opening our US server shortly!.. Thumbs up for this feature!
