    Am very random these days. Basically I am playing whenever I get time from my game project, so it could be anytime I need to Take a break and have fun.

    The new maps, ie the old BF maps in the new DLC , are a blast. Absolute blast ! A must have DLC for all BF3 owners ! I know almost all will have it as it was free with the limited edition, but those who joined late like me, GO BUY IT RIGHT NOW ! Its even better than the vanilla BF3 maps, which feel 'okay' after playing this DLC. I feel like playing only in the new maps now !

    But then, I am enjoying conquest on Caspian Border, Tehran Highway, Noshahr Canal too. The game is just full of win :razz: ! Best MP this year.........actually the most fun I have had in a game this year !:cool:

    Edit: sometimes I spend the whole match time trying to shoot down anybody who dares to take flight ! I just love to make them panic, go topsy, shoot flares, crash in mid air with someone else or drop to ground like a drunken bird :lol: ! They don't have to die, just making them crazy gives me the thrill of mischief ;) ! When I have had my fill, i go back to capturing flags !

    I've actually been addicted to Halo Reach again :wink: but will get back to BF when new maps are out. I'm usually on somewhere from 10pm to 12-12:30 AZ time (which is currently mountain)

    I'll be sure to stay visible on friends list this week and we'll play. :razz:

    Nonsense. I even talked a few coworkers who are PS3 diehards to getting BF3 on the 360. One of them is a beast too. He seems to win every 1 v 1 engagement, so my tactic is to follow him and try to steal some kills. We're playing tonight I think.

    I just haven't been on in a while. Busy building a new RC helicopter.

    Tired of mw3. Back to bf3!

    Dunno for How long this will last though, as I tend to loose interest when there is no one shot kill snipers

    I play hardcore servers...there a shot in the chest or above is typically a kill with snipers, e.g. use the SV-98 in hardcore modus...it's fun :)

    I want that deperately too. ALthough I have adjusted to it, but I can't play the way I want untill that acceleration is turned off. I am so muc better at R3 due to the option to turn it off.

    Is it hidden somewhere in menus? Can it be turned off? I am sticking to Shotguns cos I can't turn it off.

    Its not that i cannot aim with it, after one hour of adjusting can take on anybody 1vs1 with my standard run and gun tactics!

    its just that prolonged playing ruins my aiming in f.ex. CoD, and i care about my kill ratio in cod

    I have also adjusted enough to not notice it as a drawback anymore, but I still find that I am at a disadvantage during a 1 vs 1 due to my clumsyness in aiming, so I carry my trusty Shotgun around.

    In fact this is the first game where I have put my trust in a shotgun :grin: ! I had never played an MP with a shotgun before due to its ineffectiveness at medium range. nice change of playstyle for me ! But I wish I could turn off the acceleration. I see no point in a game forcing it on me !:roll:

    If you put the MAG shotgun in MW2 and had the Looney Tunes akimbo mode available, it would beat the 1887 due to its longer effective range. Worst shotgun is anything in a Treyarch COD. Their shotguns all do 0 damage outside a 20-yard zone (less than that in WaW).

    I think MAG is my favorite FPS of the current gen because its weapons are so much more believable in terms of recoil and range than just about any other game.

    ^_^ and the interactive warzone elements !

    Too bad people couldn't get over the initial map imbalance. It's also one of my favorite FPSes, besides RFOM.
