    Have lost 10/11 games in a row last 2 days. Sides were badly unbalanced + i visited the pub lol.

    0-5 start, death by tank, lav, jeep, jeep, littlebird. Multiple times 2 hits on littlebird it retreats to repair, 3rd shot dead. Nobody on my team was interested in taking out the vehicles that were flogging us. And they had our littlebird. Last time i checked the littlebird pilot was 25-0 with dedicated repairers. So frustrating a 2 hit with RPG on a jeep/hummer is not a kill?

    I know the pain which is why i am seldom engineer now even though it is my most used class.

    Engineer is better now that Stingers are actually useful against Heli's. How it takes 4 or 5 hits from an RPG to kill a tank though, I have no idea. Mines, C4, Slams are the only reliable way to kill a tank by yourself.

    i disagree. The RPG, for infantry is by the most lethal weapon against a moving tank. You just need to be smart about it. A tank can be destroyed with only 2 RPGs, the only requirement being that you hit it from directly behind, and when i say directly, i mean perfectly behind. If you can get behind a tank, it can be killed with as little as 2-3 RPGs. Mobility hits are a huge advantage to infantry AT. Take advantage of that.

    That is awesome! I'll be home by 3pm and gaming until 9pm, just a short break for dinner at some stage.

    Search back through this thread. Mexican Origin store via VPN or Fast2Play.

    Just realising I really don't have room on the SSD for another xpac.

    Should just get one purely for bf4/steam already.

    Someone earlier said 3pm AEDT. I think they're wrong.

    On reddit (source: some DICE friend) they state it'll be 10:00 CET for PC users which is 20:00 AEDT.

    Putting a new card in and installing the beta drivers with Mantle makes this game look bloody amazing.

    I got onto Caspian for the first time last night, played some Zavod this morning and it looks so different. I need to get onto Oman and see how that's running with new card, last time on the old card it was a shitful experience.

    I just wish they had Wake Island but hopefully Naval Strike will be as good as I think it will.

    Mantle runs like shit for me, it has frame rate drop (which always occur at a critical time). Ill be sticking with direct x 11 until its sorted. really disliking the fog/dust additions, its almost impossible to see anything really.

    I had one map run like a dog for me after installing that, but it's been good ever since.

    I'm seeing birds, dust and all kinds of things now which is nice.

    So far it hasn't been a hindrance.

    I hadn't read about a bug causing this; it looks vibrant to me. All I am comparing it to is my old 5770 without Mantle though.

    Pretty much this. The Mantle failure was the final disappointment for me with AMD cards. Moved to the green team for the forseeable future.

    Mantle isn't the reason you are seeing birds, dust and other features. Its just you can run very high settings now. You can see all the pretties just the same on DX11.
