    I try but then they hover directly above me and then none our weapons can aim on to target and getting out with a RPG is just suicide. The only course of action is to run and lets just say tanks are not the most quickest of vehicles. Now try driving whilst aiming and shooting backwards... It's fucken hard.

    Hey if a heli spots you and comes over for the attack fine but don't go round looking for trouble lol

    And totally agree with whole VOIP thing it's bullshit.

    OH AND YES BLOODY SPOT FFS

    Yeah man but I saw first hand how good you are with a tank last night and I ain't that good yet lol.

    I will try that next time though. I would still rather not have to deal with them in first place though.

    Anyone posted this yet

    Haha probably saw how bad I am with rage too. :lol:

    I do not know why but the games I like the most always instil so much rage (BF2, L4D, BFBC2, L4D2, BF3).

    I'm pretty sure the sparks and ricochet animations disrupt their view though, good tactic imo. Also sometimes the driver doesn't see the tank.

    Actually it does fix the stutter issue. I also didn't notice a downgrade in performance by disabling HT.

    nice rocket spam.


    now try and use a gun and get some objectives.


    depends on how far they developed it on the pc, if the base was developed for PC then they scaled back parts of it for console as i read it then its still a pc game.

    I think you're misinterpreting it. They didn't port it from console, they just focused more on the console development in the later stages so they can do it a joint release for all platforms.

    Unfortunately as we now, the PC platform suffered the most as a result, with a buggy and unstable game being released too early...

    Hahaha
    Yeah rage is always going to be a part of something like this. I think it adds to the fun though, to me if i get all ragie I am involved in the game.

    Whats with the whole platoon thing?

    Anyone worked out how to stop screen effects like light glare stretching in eyefinity? Makes it very difficult to play some levels :(

    cheers

    The fact that they have added the ability to change FOV in the actual options menu is a massive plus in my book. That is very much a PC thing

    I'm would be reluctant to cite the UI as a key indicator that the game is 'not a PC game', as you put it. As a PC gamer, and casual console gamer, I use the quality of the graphics as the key difference between the two platforms, followed closely by whether there are dedicated servers. I also accept that there's not much point having the developer create platform specific UIs (I would love it if they did though) and can understand why the UI is more geared towards the console based navigation. For these reasons, it's my opinion that BF3 on the PC is indeed a PC game.

    You might want to increase that percentage. It looks horrible on console :(

    Is there a way to carry extra ammo for the rocket launchers? I have the javelin but can only hold 2 rockets, which is not enough to take down a tank.
