    wouldnt b surprised to see that never change either.


    they're working on it, but also said in twitter "dont hold ur breath".

    and speaking of jets and chopper, its so awful that they dummify BF2's controls. it was PERFECT (IMHO) in BF2. it wasnt easy to learn, but once u master it, u get results. now its just a bunch of flyboys wannabies that get shot down by any half-decent engineer who unlocked AA. and 3rd person view?? ugh.... i was overpowered in BF2, and i somewhat agree, but this is more than just a nerf. this is a sterilize.

    i LOVE air vehicles in BF2 (from blackhawks to F-18), and im excited to see them in BF3. but in all honesty, i wouldn't miss it if they take it away if their state is like the ones in BETA. thats saying alot for me.

    guess ill be ranking tanks first.


    oh well. nothing's perfect. but im sure ill still enjoy this game!:clap:

    Is there no 3rd person in vehicles at all?



    That would suck, I use 3rd person a lot, even in tanks but especially when flying helicopters

    Anyone recommend a decent place to buy it?

    What I've always wondered is how I've actually been effective AA with just a tank. BF3 and BFBC2 alike, somehow I've always had some good luck killing choppers with tanks.

    Im sure Amazon have a price promise, if you order or pre order at a certain price you will get it for that, regardless if the price goes up.

    Been in contact with them, they say it still £29.98. I think the fly b~~tards have cancelled the order and put it tho again. Anyway they'll not get a penny from me. cancelled it this morning. They were very cheeky about it, so some other company will be getting my cash. Any way there dispatch time was a joke too. Never again amazon!
    Think I'll give ziip a try, they sound descent, anyone here used them before?

    Don't sweat it, Amazon will let you have it at the lowest price it achieves between order and delivery ;-)

    I don't know the breakdown.

    I'm getting the boxed with code myself. I like to have the physical copy of a game to limit downloads when I reinstall windows (which I will be doing a bit more these days).

    It would be even better if they didn't charge £2 extra to deliver it even though they claim they offer free delivery.
