    Only thing I am really worried about is the vehicle changes in the next patch. One tank shell to the back or side will be a disable, the patch notes say. That will make tank fights end pretty much instantly. ZZZzzz

    Yeah that would suck!2 shot tank battles.Lol.

    Battlefield 3 stuck more to its original roots with the PC version instead of the Console titles. BF2 was awesome and seeing your list you weren't there in the days of it. So its understandable why you do not like BF3.

    I really don't care if "it stuck to it's PC roots". This caused the game to not be good on consoles. I know a good game when I play one; I don't judge a game by how much it is like it's previous installment, I judge a game by how good it is. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 was a fun shooter where you had to move and think with your squad. Battlefield 3 is a shooter where you can run around by yourself and be fine. It's to generic, and therefore I have no drive to play it.

    Alright time to counter this thread,

    A. Programming is a pain and can be very unstable even with a small mistake and DICE does not have a good track record with patching things up or coding things right the first time but as long as it still gets fixed we are fine. 

    Yes it could be very difficult but it is their job and their self proclaimed Frostbite 2 engine.  They also get paid to do it and have been doing it for years. Honestly what fixes? We were promised the "game-saving" FEBRUARY patch but it is mid-March and no sign of a patch. Most think it may come in June. February patch in June makes a whole lot of sense eh? I think it will come late April but that is still 2 months after what was promised. No we are not fine until they actually try to fix it. Also they can't even fix the games biggest problem which is a direct result of using client side hit detection. 

    .

    B. Battlefield 3 stuck more to its original roots with the PC version instead of the Console titles. BF2 was awesome and seeing your list you weren't there in the days of it. So its understandable why you do not like BF3. lol. That is why people mock DICE for saying "a true sequel to BF2"? Here I'll through in a link and go on that site and tell everyone how BF3 is a true sequel to BF2. Just because I only have played on consoles does not mean I can't notice a shift in gameplay.

    *BTW: BF3 is most liked by people whose first BF3 game is BF3 or was Bc2. It is hated by a significant portion of the PC gaming community. 

    .

    C. Battlefield 3 is not becoming Call of Duty, its still sticking to its own gameplay style granted maybe modified and changed but its still the mostly the same. 

    Close Quarters? 16 players on maps designed for the slow paced Rainbow Six games = Clusterfuck. 

    The thing is BF is "evolving", as DICE puts, into a Cod hybrid in-order to attract the "target audience".

    At least you can still go on Rainbow Six Vegas 2 and find a full room of people that play the game. It might be slower paced than this game or COD, that's because they actually represented the weight of equipment/body armor you carry somewhat realisticly. Also, Ubisoft got the balance right between all the weapons even with sight attachments. Maybe DICE devs should ask them how they did that. Since one poster around here(not you) is always complaining about the "bling" on the weapons.

    A. If you ever played BF2 you know why DICE has always had issues with making a good stable patch. Things can go array and programming is not friends to change. Change something in one area, potentially make bad things happen in another. 

    B. Alot of BF fans enjoy the sequel alot. Back to Karkand DLC made us relieve moments back in the BF2 days course with destruction included. And your saying of gameplay notice, you only saw videos but never played the game. Watching something being played vs actually playing it is different enough. 

    C. Close Quarters is DLC, if this happened in the Core ttiel then yeh we be having issues but its DLC and optional to play. Alot of Former and still CoD players play BF3, DICE wants to please everyone. The Armored DLC pack will appeal more towards BF fans.

    A. If you ever played BF2 you know why DICE has always had issues with making a good stable patch. Things can go array and programming is not friends to change. Change something in one area, potentially make bad things happen in another. 

    SO maybe they should learn how to do that before they start pumping out DLC. You know fix the game before trying to milk it to death. Build a solid base before trying to add more levels on it. etc. 

    B. Alot of BF fans enjoy the sequel alot. Back to Karkand DLC made us relieve moments back in the BF2 days course with destruction included. And your saying of gameplay notice, you only saw videos but never played the game. Watching something being played vs actually playing it is different enough. 

    I love the B2K maps, I wonder why? Ohh right there was no way they could possibly *** them up because they are great maps compared to some that came with BF3. I am saying the gameplay changed on consoles too. The teamplay/tactical side of the BF franchise is nowhere to be seen in BF3. It's a water-downed game to attract Cod kids.

    C. Close Quarters is DLC, if this happened in the Core ttiel then yeh we be having issues but its DLC and optional to play. Alot of Former and still CoD players play BF3, DICE wants to please everyone. The Armored DLC pack will appeal more towards BF fans. 

    Basically the BF players will go a whole year without getting any DLC. We only have 9 good maps at the moment and 4 of them are from previous BF games. Bazzar, Tehran, Metro, and Damavand are terrible maps. So some people only really have 5 new maps to play on. 

    BTW: If Cod players want to have a Cod experience maybe they should play Cod. Why is DICE bending over for them and not trying to please their own loyal customers?

    A. Its DICE, we expect this to happen but they patch things up eventually. That and they need to pump out DLC to keep us happy. 

    B. ..................really nao?

    C. BF3 released in Oct, B2K Expansion released in Dec. Armored DLC will come around Summer - Fall. Math problem yes?

    The biggest map... sounds great for tank warfare.

    It will be exciting to use the new tanks.... I hope one tank will be the Leopard.

    I agree with the OP, however, I'll still play all the maps. As you can see by my recent games, I enjoy all the BFs I can play. Playing BF3 is much different than playing the others, though. But either way, I'll load out my class for the job at hand, and grit my teeth and try to enjoy it.

    Armored Kill should be fun. But if you have issues about the Close Quarters one, just equip C4 and wait for people to blinding run around. I know you had to of picked up that skill from Rainbow Six at some point.

    Are you talking about the green candy bar? I miss sitting behind a door with my thermal goggles on and candy bar sitting parallel with the door.

    That would be the one. I loved on Vegas 1 on the map Casino, you could place it in one spot upstairs. It was by the hall of new slot machine and there was a large doorway to that room. I would place them on the ceiling and take cover behind the slot machine. I recall so many clan matches almost stopping after a dozen or so kills in that hallway. Always good times with C4.
