    So the new Back to Karkand maps were not available to download until later last night. It was not ready around 5 EST, I then checked again at 9:30 EST and it was there. I downloaded overnight and hope to check it out today.

    To get the download you need to go to the in game Store menu and you will see it there.

    By the way, the download is over 1300MB (on the PS3 anyway).

    Well, after browsing this thread for a bit yesterday, I broke down and bought BF3. Did the first few single player missions, those are freakin' great. Then jumped onto multi-player, and got tore up! Nothing like COD online it seems like, I'll give this one a good chance, looks fun. I'm on PS3 - HawkeyeinNC

    I never played BF before I got this one. When I first played the multiplayer I was the same way, I got destroyed and I didn't understand what was going on.
    It took a little while to figure everything out, such as how the modes work like Rush and Conquest, and to learn about the squads and spawning, but once I got all that down it all makes sense now. And this game is amazingly fun. The sound is awesome (Polks all around of course), the graphics are great, the destructible environments are awesome (nothing like taking down the side of a building with a rocket to reveal a sniper inside).
    And the vehicles are very fun. Tanks, jeeps, copters, jets, etc. I personally love when I see a tank or jeep drive over a few land mines I laid down and watch them explode.

    With all that being said, I am not the best at this game but it sure has me hooked. I just wish I had more time to play. A friend and I have almost completed all the co-op missions, these are tough because once you fail you have to start from the beginning again, doesn't matter if you were at the very end or not.

    When I have some time I'll look for you on line. I'm on PS3 as well, mud71.

    Got my xbox live card today so I'm back up and running so maybe tonight?

    On a side note for you 360 guys, I had a few minutes fooling around with the new layout. I think its better looking and all, but I don't understand why you have to pay to watch a music video (or video on hulu) when you can legitimately watch them on youtube (with vevo/hulu). Who would actually pay for that?

    The new expansion pack is awesome. I had to modify my gameplay for these new maps. If you play against a good team they can hold you to one spot forever. I don't play the sniper class much but had to cause I seemed to be the only one that could get by the other teams onslaught. Had to set up a mobile spawn just so our squad could get out of our own base,lol. I did get boatloads of spawn points though. I may try it a little more often. Now if I could just get a few peeps to use the soflam and set it up correctly then you can win a map pretty easily against vehicles. Get one of those laid down and me in a chopper and it's all over. Other helos and planes dont stand a chance.
    Everything matters. That is all.
    Money cannot buy happiness, but it sure can buy a bad ass boat to pull up along side it though.

    Sometimes playing on the PC is maddening. I played like 6 straight rounds where it's all the highest ranking people one team. And everyone else on the other team. They get all the bases and then start base raping. Seriously I'm trying my best not to break anything around me. ****ing a.

    I actually have to go out and buy ANOTHER new headset tonight. I think my cat knows how to open doors/drawers because i can't hide these things anywhere safe.

    I will be on tonight for sure. Need to relieve some weekday stress.

    You guys using the battlelog web site? Great site and fun to check out stats during the work day.

    What's your longest head shot? My buddy just got a 245 meter one, not sure if it was a lucky one or not. We don't play as snipers so maybe he just got lucky there.

    109 meters is mine. Check out BF3stats.com too more even more details about your player or other players. It is good to see what metals you are close to getting.

    Seems the crew is conquest only and the few times we did play they itch to get back to conquest. I'm not sure why, I find rush more enjoyable and much more hectic, but thats just me of course.

    There's a chance I could be on later tonight, maybe after 11 EST

    That's just because my buddies like to play conquest. So its my fault, blame me.

    I'm down for some rush too. I could use a nice change of pace and it's nice to see other parts of the maps too.

    I like BF3stats.com, lots of info there. Plus our firewall here in work does not block it!

    Oh, and this site lets you see your longest headshot and it also lists the longest handheld headshot. My friends 245 meter one was from a chopper.

    149m here, no idea when it took place either. I only have about 5 minutes playing recon, so it was probably as assault or engineer.

    Same here, I have two kills with a sniper rifle, i can't do $hit with it. And don't you love when you join random squad and your three other teammates are running recon. Sometimes I kieep jumping in their line of site just to be an ass since half of them are going for kills and could care less to protect/attack the mcom. There should be a rule, one sniper per squad MAX ;)

    That's why I play recon with the DAO-12 shotgun or UMP-45. I can put down spawn beacons and run the MAV when needed, but I'm still a part of the action and not camped out up on some hill a mile away not helping the team. I always loved running recon in BF:BC2 with a Saiga and slugs/magnum ammo too.

    BTW my longest head shot is now 319. I picked off a couple of guys up on the top of the highway on Tehran highway from the base. It was a little satisfying.

    Pfft....could make that with a pistol...call me when you break 350 ....j/k

    I never use the sniper...not my style of play. I like being a$$es and elbows with the enemy.
    Pretty much sums up my relationships.

    Yeah - most of the time I play recon, I'm using the AS VAL + G19 suppr now days. When I do switch to the sniper rifle, it's usually b/c some fool is sitting across the map (esp now with the Karkand maps) just picking people off and I'm getting ticked. There was one guy yesterday who was like 52 - 19 and just sitting across the water with the L96(?) sniping away. So I switched over to the m405 and just messed with him for a few min. Of course, I'm not great w/ the sniper rifles so I gave up and just stayed away from that part of the map.

    On the PC some of the rounds get VERY lopsided - there are just some teams where everyone is doing their own thing. I'll get a sniper rifle and practice then usually. But I keep that G19 auto pistol w/ me for close combat.

    Teamwork is much better w/ the BF2 maps though, from what I've noticed. Probably b/c the gun unlocks require some semblance of helping out your squad members / team members. I'm digging the new maps.

    Face - I tried joining your game yesterday, but when I finally got on I think you left after that round. Will look for you when I'm on.

    I was playing last night for a bit and this game is so much fun, even when you are not doing so well. In one round I got killed by a repair tool, friggin guy zapped me to death (I was already injured). So funny.

    Then later on I was in a rush game and someone had one of those little flying MAV recon drones or whatever they are. The guy flew it in to me so much it killed me. I started laughing. Although when he did it two more times I started getting pissed and needed to put two or three clips in the thing to down it.

    I also killed a guy with the knife without taking his dogs tags. Normally you stab them and grab their tags, however when I went to sneak up on him and do this he moved and I just swiped at him. He must have been injured already because he died. So I checked today and I now have 55 knife kills and 54 dog tags taken.

    Fun to see new things happen even after playing since the release.

    What new/odd/uncommon things have you come across?

    I've started sniping more since that topic came up. It's alot easier with the M98B ;) But not really camping and sniping. In Wake Island there's alot of running around, but you get a good view of the whole map b/c of the horseshoe shape of the island.

    I had a repair tool kill too just for the G53(?) gun unlock. Someone did it to me too lol.

    It's touch and go finding a squad who plays together though.

    I have 4 repair tool kills myself, but do not carry it anymore as I prefer to lay down the land mines.
