Stingers don't take out helicopters in one hit. You need a javelin to do that. Which means you need teamwork... either multiple people with stinger missiles targeting a helicopter or have a SOFLAM up, which basically almost never happens. It's a bit frustrating as an engineer but I don't think it's unbalanced as such. After the helicopter pilot uses his counter measures, he will spend time flying low or flying away and not attacking you so it's still effective even if it doesn't result in a kill.

Well if you play with friends a 2 man fire team can down most aircraft. This game has always been based off teamwork unlike cod or halo when 1 person can win a map for you. My friends and I can go on a map and totaly suppress an area of the map or totlaly frustrate pilots to stay on there side of the map or die. I dont see stingers as being underpowered you just gotta use your brain when deploying them.

YOu can also do it right from the match's log. There is the same triangle to the left of his kill number

976 kills doesn't seem legit? hEH. http://cheatometer.hedix.de/ (enter GohanSamaA in the lookup) - note it says he's "banned" but its only referring to metabans status, NOT Evenbalance/Punkbuster which is what's needed to shut him down from joining any servers.

I'd lay $100 he's some east euro with a mullet, thats where 90% of the dorks were from every time I banned someone blatant from my server and submitted a PB report. Unfortunately most aimbotters have at least half a brain and fly under the radar either just with the ESP and no aim help or else using a modifier key to toggle the aiming on temporarily to help them gain a little edge and then they justify it to themselves that they're mostly playing but getting a little help, like the aimbot is just another "upgrade" for their soldier. That's the mindset.

Its always been whack-a-mole with these dorks.

Do they even ban people? I was reporting but only saw one work.

976-16? Yeah.

Clearly he's just playing better :)

Anyone notice the round time? 38 minutes. That's 26 kills per minute or roughly one every two seconds. I'm guessing he was just doing it from base.

I just have to ask, since I stopped playing before the expansions and all that were released...

...would those still playing say it's still worth dropping $50 for BF3 and the expansions right now?

Are there a decent number of servers running the expansions?

Lastly, how bad is the hacking situation these days?

So, answer me these questions three... ha ha .
Thanks.

some people say hacking is really bad, I dont really see that much going on. At least on the servers is play.

Still plenty of servers full and enough with expansions. Sucks you didnt get it for $25 not too long ago but I would say, with the expansions its worth $50 (if you play a lot of MP).

Absolutely for the MP, ha ha. I've been playing the series since inception, never for the single player.

It was on sale for $25? Damn, missed it. I used to have BF3, but stopped playing and my account was lost, so I have to buy it again.

If there's really enough servers, enough expansions running etc. that it would be worth dropping $50 again, then I'm thinking of getting back in. Need to blow some shit again, hardcore, ha ha.

I remember boosting in BF2 and getting 317 kills and 0 deaths. But it didn't involve hacking.

lol he had a 99.9% rating on the hack o meter! 57% head shot kill ratio for machine guns?

Mine is 2.4% rating with a 27% which I was surprised by. 27% seems high. whoa! 34% w the g36c and the mtar? hmm. need to use those more often!

lol mine is higher than SHiZNiLTi_OG 25% which is awesome! eat it bra!

his cheat o meter is a very suspicious 4.7%!!! hmmm lol

I play rush and I have 2 server that are always packed. 64 people, usually some wait to get in but once in its great. Tons of servers for the new DLC, which I have to say its pretty great. Def better than all the other DLCs IMO

I just installed some HACKS the other night...

I got a MSI TwinFrozr PE gtx670 OC'd stable @ 1337mhz. Also installed some HyperGlide teflon mouse skates... better watch that Cheat-O-Meter number, it's gonna be on the rise! Already getting more accusations in game :p

It's super smooth and never drops below 120fps.... Ultra terrain and textures, Medium shadows, 2x MSAA, Medium FXAA, FOV@90 and everything else low/disabled.

I love the way BF3 looks and feels on this setup, so silky smooth.

[H] guys that like to ground pound add me...

Just started recording my games. We've been switching over to Normal from Hardcore since the competitive leagues use 100hp 'Normal' settings which seriously throw us off our game.

Using DxTory now instead of fraps. Performance loss is pretty much negligible. Video size is typically 2gb for a 20 minute match at 720p. I'm considering recording in 1080 if my recording disc can handle it.

If someone doesnt set their graphic settings to keep frame rates above 60 at least, they are seriously putting themselves at a huge disadvantage. Enjoy having the power to push this game to the max, its a good time.

My BF3 glitched on a close quarters match. The textures made for some interesting changes I thought lol:








Just thought I'd share.

LOL, what the hell? That's a weird texture, looks like some sort of rheostat.

I've also noticed some really weird textures in that exact spot...

wow.

1600 SPM
Ya obvious hacker is obvious, but SPM is very flawed though... I have a few friends that the majority of the time play Metro 64man Conquest and all have a SPM of 1000-2000 which is average if your a decent player. Where if the same player was to play conquest/rush on regular maps they would be around 750 SPM.

Also the double XP weekends will artificially increase your SPM since SPM is determined by total score at end of round divided by minutes played.

I have a 903 SPM and never got into 64 man metro, majority of the time I played 32man rush as assault and since Aftermath was released I play mostly Scavenger mode which is like conquest, but more fast paced action. I like how Scavenger mode kinda gives you an equal playing field where you don't have "try hards" abusing the M16 or snipers camping objective points with 12x scopes, instead all guns are picked up off the ground at random. I think it helps you become a better overall player since you get to use a bunch of different guns, otherwise in rush/conquest I usually stick with the same 2 or weapons and never change it up lol.

Had a great kill today. I was running around on the monolith map in some hardcore mode server. I had ran out of ammo and was running around trying to find a support to get ammo, I was by the bridge at C, and saw a downed teammate, looked around, didn't see any enemies, so I walked up to him and tried to pick up his gun, but as fate would have it, I just recently reconfigured my key layout from numpad to E,S,D,F, so I had a hard time finding the key I needed. I was looking at the ground, pressing buttons randomly, and accidently pressed my grenade button, my soldier threw the grenade at the ground and it bounced a few feet in front of me, I figured I was dead but I managed to pick up the gun from the dead teammate, and then the grenade went off, killing an enemy sniper who was apparently about to put me out of my misery and sparing me. lol. Anyway, karma's a bitch, because the gun I picked up was an ACW and I didn't find out until I saw my next enemy that it was in single shot mode and the guy I ran into blew me away while I was like "uh...wtf". :(

Yeah you can certainly rack it up in metro. A good player in position can just hose areas on that map. More open maps, you can't camp as effectively. This is why I dislike Metro. too simplistic.

HSK = Headshot kill ratio. A real tell for a hack is if their accuracy is crap but their headshot kill ratio is high. So if somebody has a 6% accuracy with say a M60 but somehow 60% of the kills are headshots, you might be a hacker.

See you soon Shiz. Had to drive family to Florida for a funeral. Brutal drive.

I need mouse skates! Back in the early BF days I was SPONSORED and got those free...miss that. Be surprised if we ever see it again with this game. At least, for as many people as they used to hook up. I was never great, just reliable.

Had a friend get BF3 the other week. Big FPS player but never BF3. Got the game, hitup metro and some AM maps and with the double XP he was cranking out 1300spm matches and I watched over his shoulder.

These 2x xp bonus's toss the SPM factor out the window.

Yep, took me from mid 500's to 650. Used to be a cool stat, but now it's out of wack.

If you haven't already bought a copy of Dxtory, you should check out OBS

it can do everything Dxtory and Xsplit does, but for free and in one application. None of the framerate or scene limitations or watermarks of the free trials of either to boot.

lol, same thing with me. I talked a friend into getting the game a couple weeks ago during this last Double XP, we played in all the same servers rush and scavenger mode, he wasn't even doing all that great, but his SPM is around 1200...

I'd add some of your [H]ard goers but battlelog being limited to 100 soldiers is awful. My list is made up of my 100 buddies plus my friend queue, where I have to visit their profile to see if they are playing somewhere.

If any of you guys are in clans, the one I'm in is always looking to do friendly 8v8 infantry only scrims. Love to get some games in with the [H]|G or just HardForum members
