Does it mean the flag carrier has to go on foot? Or is the motorcycle about to pick him up?

Don't have a card in it at all that's why i'v been MIA in BF3 as the 970 chipset doesn't have on board graphics so can't use it either

That looks like a ton of fun. I bet it won't be easy to run that flag though...

It always seems to be an extraordinarily difficult task to complete in any of the FPS titles to include it in the last decade.

Yes, the update got it's own thread.

Yes, I did. Not sure what's up. I guess we're extra special.

The patches are so big because they have to overwrite large amounts of the game entirely. They can't just pick and choose little pieces of update. The size doesn't balloon with all the patches.

Mine is 27.8GB. Wow. But nearly 17GB is the update folder.

Actually, it looks like it did balloon. I assume we can't delete the Patch and Xpack directories, correct?

I frequently join a pub server, maybe has 25-50 players total, and I'll say to my team :

"Do we need an AA out there?"

"Anyone need a Soflam up?"

"Do we have a Soflam, need more Javs?"

"etc"

And ZERO response, almost every time. The most common thing I see in the in-game chat field is typical bullshit from each side "You're a hacker! Impossible!", "You suck", etc. People are largely assholes imho.
I know exactly what you're talking about. I took a break from playing over the summer and when I came back, it seemed that there were so many more "COD" type players. Run-and-gun, no teamwork, bitching and complaining...

Constant taunts of "(insert any gun name here) noob". I just wish people would either say something helpful to the team or just shut the hell up and go back to Modern Warfare.

My game name is Blackheart_HMFIC if you ever want to get some easy kills. I'm still a little rusty.

There are far to many people who don't like to lose and have no idea what teamwork is. As soon as one team starts taking advantage, people start changing teams. I love when myself and a few friends join a server on the losing side and change things around. Sucks when you're solo, which I usually am.

thankfully on the console BO2 seems to have taken most the COD morons away from BF3. its still hard to communicate because you cant type chat but even now and then you get in a squad with some people that are with it and just fing dominate

turned around a 1200 ticket metro last night after being down by 500 tickets, dominated a Oman with superior tank skills

Why is it when someone whines in BF3 they are called a CoD player?

I ran my own CoD4 server for years and kicked asshats quite regularly, one of the first thing I noticed when going to BFBC2 was the amount of asshats was drastically higher than what I was used too. Of course this was because I couldnt police any servers other than my own and saw the same thing when playing cod4 on other servers.

My point is this: Asshats are asshats, they are around in huge numbers, and they play every game imaginable. LOL
