    Ill have my Asus CU 2 6970 2GB tomorrow and i run the game at Ultra/no AA/no Blur/SSAO on

    expected frame rates??? 2560x1440 just a ballpark is fine.

    I am coming from SLI 570s but they kept running out of VRAM.

    I don't mind going back to all High as i can't tell the diff TBH.

    Conversely to this I was on Caspian the other night and randomly picked up an enemies Engineer kit by mistake. Not wanting it to go to waste I threw a few AT mines down and ran away only to forget about them.

    A few minutes later I was treated to a flurry of numbers on my screen as a fully loaded vehicle trundled over them and leaving my completely confused as to what I had actually done.

    SVD takes 2-4 shots to kill someone, gg. Played assault for a while and omg that was so easy, just spray and pray and people died like crazy, hell the m16 seems to hit harder than the svd. SV98 is pretty nice, great on hardcore as body shots kill, but taking out snipers 500m+ away is quite fun.

    The main "battle" tanks are weak pieces of shit and you're better off using rpg's to take out other tanks, 4-5 120mm rounds and then the other tank decides to go bang?

    I've read a lot of people say the bf3 joystick controls are terribad, bf2 was much more precise....fucking console developers, I fail to see how hard it is to make a game that can have a way to work decently with joystick and joypad...

    Still waiting for my goddamn preorder to arrive from Ozgameshop! Had an email a week ago saying they'd shipped it and it would take 4-7 days to arrive. WTH is the point of preorder if I don't get my game on release! :mad:

    Really want to play this game, dreaming of the beta... all other games are boring at the moment, ran through Portal 2 quickly...

    People that are having the crashing every 5 mins bug, try running the game on med or low settings, it works well for me, i think that the game or the drivers nvidia or amd try to work the gfx cards too hard causing the game to crash on some setups.

    Punbuster off would mean hackers picked up by PB will not be insta banned from your server.

    Rank off means you dont get any points towards your soldier.

    I shot down 4 heli's last night as a gunner. 2 of those were as a gunner in a damn jeep :p
    Also, tanks stand out like dogs balls from a helicoptor - especially if you've been spotted.

    Drive faster, or better yet shoot them down yourself. :thumbup:

    There are a number of people in this boat.
    Wish they sent the cd-key code in the email, that way we could have downloaded it.

    I'm hopeful I receive it today

    Sadly, all guns seem to be much of a muchness, with the 2nd last unlock being the exception.

    IE, assault weapons are all "okay", then you get the f2000 and everything exploads.
    similarly, all the bolt actions are "okay", then you get the M98B... :Paranoid:

    Hi Theodorou. I was in a game with you last night. Yes, I had a wheel plugged in from iRacing earlier on in the night. Yes, the heli went sideways on takeoff. No, you didn't have to be an arsehole about it.
