    It is, but it is disappointing to see the half-hardcore EGL servers which are the usual-lot when it comes to hosting the hardcore servers.

    In the end if you're spending $80/month on a server you want people to actually play it, and a lot of people can't stand hardcore (me included).

    So what's the main distinction, is hardcore all about 1 hit kills?

    Depends on the server

    No Map (so no motar)
    Lower Health
    No 3d spotting
    No crosshair
    No 3d vehicles

    The thing that shits me to no end about hardcore mode is the FF. You lob a grenade at someone only to have some moron teammates run into the area and boom, team kills all round and kicked and banned. Same as team mates running into choke points only to get kilked by friendly fire. IMO its just a retarded game mode and so boring since majority of people camp waiting for someone to move.

    FF is the best part and all games need it by default.

    If you are getting kicked for exessive tk'ing maybe you are the retard?

    The grenade issue can be annoying, you can have a pack of degenerates that walk into the room 3 seconds after you throw a nade and boom KICKED LIKE A BITCH

    I don't mind hardcore mode, but FF shits me to tears. There's nothing you can do to stop some tard from running into a room you just lobbed a grenade into or stepping right into your line of fire....

    If I wanted absolute realism I'd play Arma....As a result. I don't play Arma....

    FiShy you just sound like one of these degenerates.

    The game was never intended to be a simulator, so I don't see the point of 'hardcore' mode.

    So about 60% or more of the time my game never loads into a screen where i can click deploy. It will stay with the server banner for ages then a black screen saying loading for ages while i heard gunfire etc...
    Happens way to often

    Having FF doesn't make it a simulator, you just have to think before you act.

    HC is brilliant and definitely the best way to play if the server is set up right and did BF3 get it right HELL NO!

    I played all of about 50hrs of HC out of the 900 hrs in BF3 due mainly to the fact that idiots don't get booted quick enough for TK'ing.

    I'm the opposite. I don't like Hardcore mode, but would like FF to be on.

    If having a gunfight with another guy, and some heli-tard can just strafe the fuck out of the area with no consequences. Fuck that.

    But I do agree, the ptk system needs some reworking, otherwise you can just repeatedly grief people until they are kicked.

    $59 for battlelog preorder for beta users inclusive of dlc. im happy with that. no fuss with mexican proxy etc.

    btw, is the beta closed? i click on play now in origin and it just keeps taking me to a preorder screen... manually selecting BF4 instead of BF3 from battlelog does the same :/
