    I don't even play metro anymore. It always gets locked in a stalemate and becomes very boring.

    Server browser isn't showing pings and the last three servers I tried were super laggy. Oh well guess I'll play later.

    for some reason when you mortar someone who is using the mortar, it results in a 1 hit kill. When mortaring regular infantry. I noticed it takes 2 hits.

    the mortar hits at about 60-damage. so the only way u can get a 1-hit kill is if u hit someone right in the head. or someone with less than 40 health.

    which, at damavand rush, can be pretty easy. or seine crossing choke points. or even point B in bazaar.

    the only exception is another mortar user. it is an instant kill.

    problem is, theres a bunch of fools in BF3 ;) most of them dont kno what hit them. most of my mortar kills are 2-hitting noobs who doesnt move after getting hit the first time.
    its not as strong nerf. damage isn't really reduced just the aiming, which in all honesty, a little more realistic. and the reload is about right too.

    im hoping now it'll be a bit more what it's intended to be used for; area effect coverage - either damage or smoke. not weapon of mass destruction.

    I think mortars are just fine, they are easy to counter and are really only effective in HC mode. I think the most annoying part is it shaking your screen so much when trying to aim.



    Here's another video

    I'm really not liking the Origin client, this is another update that I've had to take special action for.

    aka martyr or berserker? :hehe:

    It is the done thing but, I was just considering this talk of Metro. Imagine a fire fight going on in one of the usual places, and suddenly your opponents evaporate. Are you not just going to charge down after them? Then face the onslaught of a prepared kill zone from the other teams side. ;)

    I didn't even have to do that, I opened Origin, made a cup of tea and came back and the download was already 10% done, not too shabby.

    I think he means "go online".

    BTW I'm impressed by the download speed. I'm getting around 4.2MB/sec on what's supposed to be a 30Mbit line. Even Steam doesn't download this quickly.

    Not at all. Update hasn't worked at all, I've reinstalled the client for the update to go through. By the way it says 3.9GB :eyebrow:

    Agreed. EA do have fast servers. I get over 1MB, Steam usually comes in at about 900kbs.

    Just realised that the patch is 3.9GB, I thought it was only 2? Hopefully the extra stuff is some surprise BC2 maps!!!

    Can we make that Christmas number 1?

    As of next week some MP goodness for me, I best prep my self-esteem before the obligatory new noob kill/death ratio being not in my favour. :D

    Sucks that Karkland is out for the PS3 today and we have to wait a whole week, seems like a odd deal as a free DLC for a game coming a week early is hardly going to make anyone go out and buy a PS3.. *shrugs*

    This is PS3 they will all suck at it, probably have loads of server crashes and disconnects. And will never look as good as PC version does!!
