One REALLY good sign of cheating is if their hits/kill ratio is too low. If a gun does on average say 18-25 damage and a guy is averaging like 2 shots to kill a guy with that guy, he's probably got a damage modifier on.

Wallhacks are the hardest to catch IMO.

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.

You weren't shit either. :p

Do i take it as a compliment that that site has my hsk ratios in red, gold, and green or that it says there's a 30% chance I'm cheating? I don't know how I feel about that.

Link for the lazy or if anyone gives a shit to take a peek.

No bc your accuracy is good too. I know how patient and methodical you are. When the fuck do you play though? I never see you! Still a late night ghoul?

Anyway, I know how much you hate cheaters. Like that fucking V2 team in the BFV world tournament that HS us through the jungle and across the map. Yeah. Still haven't forgotten them.

I have wallhacks so long as the server isn't too populated. If it isn't noisy, I can hear people pretty much perfectly with my headphones. 64 man? I don't even try to hear people move.

Hey man, nice last couple of rounds, see you went 50-6 and 47-3, awesome ratio's!!!

I added you on BattleLog :)

Thanks man. I'm mostly good thanks to fast reflexes, my mechanics are still sort of meh. Something I've been trying to work on. I record all of my rounds now, good or bad, so those two matches will be on YouTube whenever my home internet connection finishes uploading them.

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

I don't know about 8v8 but we can get 5 people together and play infantry scrims if you'd like. My Platoon is around 1.3-1.4 average kdr.

Ya after watching a couple of ur vids I can tell you have pretty fast reflexes. I have really quick reflexes also, but what I lack is that ability of playing smart. For some reason I never use the minimap near as much as I should, I need to setup the enlarge map to a button on my mouse so I press it more often, I see alot of pro players doing that, I pretty much only use directional sound.

I'm like rambo out there on the battlefield. I almost always have the most kills and top score (500 MVP's), but also the most deaths :(

I never have any good medics to run with keeping me alive since I've been playing only scavenger mode lately and when I do play rush the guys I play with on TS are always run N' gun quick scoping snipers which don't help me stay alive. I'd be interested in running with you guys a few rounds,

What's the VOIP info?

One thing that irks me about this game is the frequent references to forced homosexual anal intercourse. I could really do without hearing "I'M GETTING MY SHIT PUSHED IN" or "I'M GETTING FUCKED IN THE ASS OVER HERE" every twenty seconds.

Moreover, I find it regrettable that my generation is so anally focused in general. It's quite disgusting.

There's a reason why the Greeks and the Romans, and even those before them, enjoyed the pleasure of the brown eye. Don't knock it until you've tried it, and it's not disgusting if done right.

I'm not saying I agree with hearing the same annoying memes being used over and over, I'm just sayin'... more chicks than you would think are into it, as I've experienced myself. Guys too, and nothin' wrong with that.

Just sayin'... since you made it such an issue. Don't judge, man.

Being someone that was part of the military culture, we were all very mean (jokingly...mostly) to each other and completely inappropriate at all times. It's pretty accurate speech patterns...though it doesn't give enough credit to our creativity...we found many different ways to be dirty and inappropriate, lol.

You'll notice that the two civilizations you mentioned are long dead. Both sunk into degeneracy before their fall, indulgence in sodomy being one of the early signs of decline.

How do you guys get such high SPMs? I felt proud of my 370 SPM until I saw what you guys have. I'm limited to 16-player servers due to my connection...as such, there are many minutes when I am running between objectives trying to find opponents or other ways to score points. It shot up from about 200 when I started playing TDM.

I'm no expert, but my higher SPM matches come from TDM servers running as assault. Another way is as recon using the spawn beacons and MAVs/TUGs to get extra points while you're doing what you do - shoot stuff.

That's crazy! At least they wiped his stats. Hopefully that means he's banned too.

I checked his profile and it says he's banned. Good riddance.

High tickets + high player counts + close quarters maps (or Metro). Join a 1000T Ziba 64 server and you can get a free 150SPM just by placing a TUGS in the right position. That's not counting the SPM you get for actually killing people. It's a useless stat tbh.

report his ass. I am tired of seeing him in the HT servers. No idea how he isn't banned yet.

Can you link any Battlelog report of his where he was cheating? I feel it would probably be better to send that in the report to get him banned faster.

Playing a medic on CQ maps with a PDW or m16a3 on a high cert server. CQ maps are easy to score a lot because the objectives are close to each other and there are many people on screen to kill en route to the next one.

How did that scrim go last night?

I noticed you in your WSI server playing against nsx-steeler, those nxs guys are pretty damn good... Out of the 20 nxs members they average an SPM of 1,200 and a 3.29kdr! A couple nxs guys even have an SPM of 2,138 and a 5.83kdr!!!, that's pretty crazy and takes hella work to keep stats up like that. Also takes alot of TDM and Metro 64man CQ lol :p

You still on a E4600, 2gb ram and a gts450?

I feel for your poor 6mb down/0.84mb up internet connection speed. That upload is terrible, probably effects hit detection also, especially if you are already having issues with larger servers.

If that's still your system specs that could be your issue of not being able to get a higher SPM, your being bottlenecked by your system specs, having more fps really helps out in BF3 especially with hit detection and being able to stay locked onto bunny hopping enemies.

Even in a 16 player TDM server you should still be able to get up to around 800-1000spm if you have really good run.

Check out your below battlelog of a TDM match, the guy in 2nd place on your team that went 80-29, he got an award score of 18,600 + 10,163 / 37 minute round time = 777spm.

http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/battlereport/show/53058814/1/195311074/

You went 42-25 which is roughly half of what he got so 777/2= 388spm, which happens to be roughly what you current SPM is.

So your not doing anything wrong, all it comes down to is that you just need to get more kills to get a better SPM. You should try out the Scavenger game mode type, it's pretty fast paced action like TDM, but there's objectives to capture like in CQ mode so you get more points. It's really fun and kinda evens the playing field so you don't run into "M16 try hards".




xspaceman, I'll report that guy also and have my friends do it as well, crazy that he is still in the HT servers.

We uh..

We got dominated. To be fair, we get dominated in all of our scrims. :D We're getting better at least. We actually managed to win one round out of 4, but that round was 5v4.. It's hard to out-play these guys that have such terrific target acquisition and awareness. I find myself losing the head-to-heads a lot, mostly since I'm too used to Hardcore and I'm not very good at bringing someone down in 2 hits with the M16 yet. I also feel like I move too much which brings the accuracy way down.

I hope to have the scrim up on youtube tomorrow. For some reason my youtube uploads are stopped, and I can't even remote in to my home machine to check right now so I'm assuming my comcast connection shut down randomly. I've actually considered bringing the files in to work and uploading them overnight on our 20mbit upstream. :rolleyes: Pretty sure comcast is traffic shaping me or something.

Yeah, still a late night ghoul but I haven't played in months, can't afford xpacs/premium or my p.e.d.s so heh. ;)

I still remember the one TWL match where that one kid was so incredibly blatant that the next day Oreo and Ace pretended to be TWL admins, got the dude to admit it, recorded the whole convo and posted it for the community to hear. BFV was always fun times.

lol, I figured it might have been bad. I was checking out nxs-lethalWMD's youtube channel, they have pretty good comms and teamwork. Even with getting dominated it's the best way to get better, being able to figure out what your weakness is and learn from that experience, more scrim's the better :). If you need a ringer ever hit me up, my friend teh_unborn and I would like to scrim, what game modes / maps are you guys focusing on?

Interesting that you bring up moving too much is effecting accuracy.... I wonder if sideways strafing effects accuracy alot. I'm constantly doing WASD dancing when I'm in a battle.

Sux about your crappy connection, I kinda take for granted my 25mb down/ 20mb up stable connection.

Yeah I do the same thing (used to play CS leagues back in the day) and it's a hard habit to break. We're in the CEVO league right now, so we're playing the rotation of 5v5 small conquest (3 capture points). It's very tough, since the matches are all on vanilla BF3 maps and we've only been pubbing on Aftermath the last couple months. We also do quite a bit of internal scrimming usually 3v3, so if you guys want to hang out and play with us we welcome skilled players to play with and against. Or if you want to go absolutely ruin some pub servers we can do that too. ;)

I am just going to start emailing admins from now on. EA is useless unless you get enough complaints. I can't get all of them but i will settle for a couple.

Wish you all weren't on so late. Getting too old for that and am east coast. I guess weekends are good but I would love to play some sort of comp though as I am much better as a teamate than a rambo. I guess Cevo is all there is now?

I remember that. Oreo was a pimp lol. he is doing ok last time I spoke with him. Ace? Lord only knows. He probably does it for real now. I think he went to Annapolis.

I am off to hunt down Six8W and give him some smoke and grief.

Wow, good memory! Yep, still running those system specs. I run it at 1280x720 on medium/high settings and it's fairly smooth...probably around 30-40fps on smaller maps. On bigger maps it does tend to run a bit slower, but the biggest difference is in the lag. I die 3 or 4 seconds after getting behind cover as opposed to the usual 1-second delay from lag compensation. Even in Bad Company 2, games with more than 24 players required me to hit players far more times and resulted in far more insta-deaths from assault rifles and SMGs for me.

High-pingers slow the game down too...the low-pingers in the game start raging at them when they start outnumbering us. I'm not sure if it is people outside of Australia exploiting our shitty download speeds along with the lag comp.

I like Scavenger, but hardly anybody plays it... or any of the DLC for that matter. It might be due to the DLC being far more expensive here ($24), as well as a lower player population. The Scavenger games I see going are usually 64-player servers.

I don't really like scavenger to be honest, everyone I know only played it for the crossbow, and that was the last of it. The weapon drops aren't random either, the same weapons will be in the same place in the same order every time. So if you know where your favorite tier 3 is, you can always pick it up and just get ammo. Was kinda disappointed with that.

On the other hand I still play GunMaster from time to time to get experience with weapons I don't normally touch. I've only done I think one of the new progressions, haven't had a chance to experience all 9.

I don't know why, but this made me LOL this morning. Thanks :D

Ninja edit: I'm putting this quote in my sig if that's ok, saedrin. :)

Ditto on the scavenger mode, Crotan. I was hoping for more ... scavenging. I do like the idea of a somewhat level playing field and I prefer this mode over gun master. I just can't get into GM.

i know that they nerfed the FAMAS, have they made it a bit better again? I played for the first time with it yesterday and I did really good (best i have done in a while even with the iron sights which on the famas are fucking aweful).

Np, I'm completely stoked with this new connection.

:eek: Nice speed!

Thanks! Finally off of 3mb upstream!

Now with the new bandwidth, I can record stuff in 1080p and upload a night's worth of footage in a couple hours while I'm sleeping.

I record all of my full BF3 rounds now, so please feel free to watch and give me some pointers!

Trying to increase my KDR, want to be at 2.5 by the end of january

SweetFx is the injector I use. Now, it doesn't get rid of the jaggies but does a hell of a lot for the blue tint and overall crappy colors and vibrancy of the game. Aka makes it POP.

NOTE: this is SMAA not the other FXAA injector used previously. I use ultra preset for this. I don't mess with it otherwise.

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

Wow, sounds good, man. What are your servers?

Which DLC are you referring to as "pretty great" that is better than the others?

My account ended up being borked so I'm still reconsidering whether or not to get back into it at this point.

I've recently started streaming. I'm not amazing or anything, I consider myself average. I'm just learning Twitch and I'm using Open Broadcaster Software. For some reason it won't stream my BF3 game sounds. Anyone have any ideas? Sound in any other game streams fine, my mic and other desktop sounds stream fine, just not BF3.

Also, epic knife fails earlier. For some reason the Highlight doesn't have audio, so if you want to hear my panic mashing the keyboard watch the full video starting at ~1:02:25 for about a minute

Highlight: http://www.twitch.tv/tehslippery/c/1843838
Full: http://www.twitch.tv/tehslippery/b/358005670

First round (ends about 27:30) I was really awful, followed by a Pistol Gun Master that I was mediocre, then a pretty good third round. I'm open to general advice though I think I'm a decent player, just don't pay enough attention to the map and sometimes have trouble with target recognition

Edit: Also going to stream my awfulness right now!

Have you always been able to play Gun Master on Aftermath maps? I just joined a server that playing Gun Master on Talah Market.

Link to Battlelog: http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/battlereport/show/53470088/1/294683489/

Yes you have, there are also a variety of Gunmaster modes now.
