    This is completely laughable now.

    My rig is very simple, nothing fancy and I still experience bugs, especially after this recent patch.

    Suddenly out of nowhere, in the middle of a great game with an excellent k/d ratio, the loading screen appears and it quits, just like that?!

    Since you put it like that it makes more sense, i know DICE make the game but EA are overall in charge, pushing a game just for sales is stupid, hence the broken game, and all the DLC in a year if it is true makes for a short lived game. I couldn't tell you what the COD sales are but i have no doubt they will be good.

    I knew about sim city, it was just an example of EA getting it funked up again

    You think you are safe, hidden behind the trees with your 8x scope and you silencer ? I'll find you lad, I'll take your dog tags.

    Just for lols I thought I'd get 2 aircraft stuck in the wires on Rogue.

    Accidentally found this could happen in a proper game and managed to wiggle it loose.

    Anyone know with the Assignment Land Warrior if when you reach 100 rank and already have a battletank medal it will be counted or will I have to do it all over again? I don't have the IFV medal yet and will hold off getting it if I'd have to do it all over again. They're not hard to do just time consuming.

    How the hell do you control helicopters? I can stay airborne for about 20 seconds and then I lose control and then get intimate (not sexually) with the ground.

    Why not try the test range mode in BF4, then you can slowly away learning the controls, the annoying thing is when you first start flying your counter measures are pretty useless and your cannons etc, the more you fly the more unlocks you get, but flying against experienced jet pilots, chopper pilots and good ground work you wont last long

    Have a team mate repair as you fly, that can keep you in the air longer

    Also the 360 controller can be used to fly if that makes it any easier for you

    Personally, I'd not recommend using the mouse to fly if you are. Arrow keys and WASD for me, controller works too if you have one.

    So that's where I've been going wrong, I didn't know you could use the arrow keys! Using the mouse is so hard I wondered how people got so good

    Yea, I always thought that using a mouse would be easier, so you 'aim' the air unit but that normally ended with me aiming a bit too well realising trying to correct it and crashing into to the floor, killing myself and missing what I was aiming at as well.

    So I switched to the keyboard, still not remotely good at flying but I can get from A to B which suits me fine.

    If you're using a mouse, map pitch up/down to buttons as well as mouse motion, that way you have access to full up/down at any moment without being limited by mouse travel, if you've got enough buttons mapping roll as well is a good idea for the same reasons.

    You can always spot players not using this layout because they can't sustain turns and rolls for any length of time, then I kill them.

    Using just the keyboard is also viable, but you lose a bit of the fine aim correction that way, which is more important in BF4 than 3 because the hit boxes seem to be smaller (especially for Helicopters) and the aircraft guns have been nerfed to oblivion (except Scout 25mm...).

    Keyboard and mouse for me and I'm fairly good at jet flying.

    I don't think I could get used to all keys, been flying keyboard and mouse since bf3.

    Aircraft guns nerfed? They are well over powered, well in the attack jet at least (stealth jets cannons are pooh)
