    Well now I know why one of my friends was complaining about a shotgun guy shooting him from at least a hundred meters away, repeatedly too. :D

    I wonder why they won't fix that, I'd think it could become a major annoyance although it hasn't happened to me yet so I don't really care. :p

    It's fun to snipe snipers with the reflex sights, especially when they try their hardest to put you down first only to get a three round burst to the head from a M16. Gotta love it.

    Are you 100% sure about this? I've read that they have the same bullet drop as sniper rifles. I also think I've had to aim high to get marksman headshots with slugs.

    How can I practice flying the helicopters? If I start my own unranked game can I just fly around by myself or does there have to be at least one other person on the other team for the game to start? Which level has a lot of helicopters?

    I have not experienced any lag. The only bug I have had with this game is 1 crash to desktop after I had alt-tabbed quite a few times setting up my ventrilo.

    People with GeForce 8800 GT, how well does it run? My brother gets pretty horrendous performance drops; He has Core 2 Duo E6400 and I believe it is starting to show its age in this game.

    This does look like a nice game, will most likely buy it when there's nice weekend/holiday deal in Steam.

    Just an FYI for people who have this game on steam

    When the current patch (which is released currently for non-steam users) is released on steam, SecuROM WILL be removed. BUT ONLY for STEAM buyers, non-steam buyers, or retail, will still have SecuROM

    We no longer have to deactivate the game or worry about the 10 limit activations

    Now EA can brag about how they handle DRM the right way to Ubisoft.

    I was completely lag free until the end of this past week.

    Since then, just about on every server, I occasionally get what I think some people call 'reverse lag'... the world around me just just stops, like frozen in time; I can still run around the world, though, shoot my gun, knife people, etc. It reminds me of Hiro on "Heroes" when he freezes time.

    After several seconds (sometimes maybe just 5 seconds, sometimes may as much as 20 secs), the game "un-freezes" and I'm put put right back to where I'd be if I continued on a straight line at the point of the freeze.

    Sometimes, instead of un-freezing, it just disconnects me from the server. :(

    No stuttering at all, though.

    Was hoping for a bit more in this patch... quite minor issues for the most that I see on the change list.

    Browser needs a redesign to stop refreshing every server on earth as soon as you log on and give a option to refresh existing list or get new list.

    Filter list need more options.

    40mm noob tube still not nerfed & Carl Gustav still being abused.

    Autobalance still not fixed.

    Also patched and pre-patched players can all play together and dont get a a kick for old version. Just shows all changes are cosmetic or singleplayer. What a let down.

    They've already said previously that they're working on changes to the browser. They're obviously just not yet done. They've said the browser is the thing that's bogging their server down and not the game itself and the hardware they've recently (supposedly) added is just a band-aid until they fix the browser.

    Looking at the list, this is obviously just a bunch of easy bug fixes they can get out the door. No balancing changes at all. There's probably half a dozen other balancing issues that are irking me. The 40mm and Gustav are at the bottom of my list.

    They'll probably want to wait a little bit and monitor some more before re-balancing because they know people are going to get even better with more and more practice. Every re-balance causes flack from angry players, and if they rebalance today, they know they'll have to do it yet again tomorrow as players will continually improve with more experience. I remember reading an interview with one of BF2's designers commenting on how air vehicles had become so dominating on the BF2 maps. He said they never envisioned people becoming such expert pilots with the copters and especially jets in the game. They were designed to be deliberately easy enough to learn, yet still hard enough to never be mastered. But with time (years), players still mastered them to the point that the original developers didn't even know the jets were capable of doing what people were doing with them.
    Also, DICE's history with the BF franchise is they're wary and slow to get out balance changes... the rebalancing usually gets tested for quite a while internally before they release.

    It's a game of rock paper scissors sometimes.... Tubes destroy LMGs which destroy assault rifles which destroy snipers in close quarters which destroys everything at range except for LMGs who tap and... well you get the picture. Everything is "balanced" in a way that everything has a counter to an extent.
