    And the hacks keep getting more advanced. Played against someone called IngloriousBastad, who apparently doesn't exist. Everytime someone tried to get a vote started to kick him, the admin system posted that the player doesn't exist. Finally a vote suddenly started and he was kicked. He did manage to get about 200 kills and die twice while running and gunning. He could instantly kill anybody with one shot no matter what weapon or distance. As if that wasn't enough, he came back and this time his name didn't even appear on the scoreboard. You could however see him getting kills according to the system that posts kills in the upper right corner.

    I dont know about anyone else, but I am not entirely impressed with this game in terms of graphics. I heard so many good things about it, but after playing it its nothing I havent seen before. The gameplay is great, just doesnt look as good as everyone made it out to be...

    :(

    I fully think it was a waste of $40 to get this game. Waited hours for the download, and then 20 minutes to get it up and running, and it is just nothing new. The only thing surprising is the frame rate I am getting with a 4870 and g530. Medium graphics (set automatically)

    Sigh. Like almost all games today, the medium graphics and ultra graphics settings are hardly different. That looks about the same as it does on ultra. I miss the days when ultra settings were lightyears better then medium.

    Only game in recent memory for me thats like that is starcraft 2, looks shit on low, awesome on ultra. Iv give up on battlefield 3. I give up on shoooters in a way too. Theres just nothing new and innovative. (Other than arma, thats a game i dont think i could give up, too many mods).

    2004 Far Cry comes to mind for me :D

    I remember when that game first came out, whoa. It was mind blowing. Playing it today its not as much :\ I still have the magazine that was advertising it when I first saw it and had to have it. Far Cry is the game that got me into building computers more/less. Before DX9, I was never really into graphics because I grew up in the DX7/DX8 era where the graphics looked like crap to me even then so when DX9 came along I saw the difference and was like WOW!

    You just have practice that is it. I use to fly Hydra lot of time in San Andreas so I had practice. I changed keys to that and now I am good with it, but I just have 3 jet service stars. What is your origin?

    the game is confusing me now. There is times when a little electric plug thing shows up in the upper right of the screen, which freezes the local of the soldier, but I can still shoot others, but they don't damage me. When it happens I alt+F4 just in case its some wacky cheat key or something that i stumbled across.
    Ill grab a screen shot when it happens next.

    screen of it.

    I'd wager that it informs you of issues with your internet connection. I've only ever had it pop up once and it was brief.

    Does anyone else keep randomly dying again with the "You committed Suicide" or "Bad luck" message,This was an issue in the past and they fixed it...seems to be back again.

    I only got the bad luck message the one time I bailed out of a jet and I just figured that I was hit by the jet or by AA fire.

    I stopped getting the "You Committed Suicide" message, I only get "Bad Luck" Message and that mostly before I am going to die. Sometimes when a tank shoots me I get bad luck message instead of the Dog Tag of enemy.

    It updates after some time if you had crashed out of the game, kind of happens.

    So apparently roadkill with the eod =/= kill with the eod. Eventually managed to kill a guy on a mortar

    okay, might query y'all here. Is it worth it to get BF3 premium? I know it comes with the map packs, but is it all of them? Or would I still have to buy armored kill when it comes out?

    Im thinking about buying the engineer and recon kit shortcuts, and was thinking about getting the karkand pack, but I don't want to get it if premium would have all the packs.
