BF3 patch
Good news, everyone! According to DICE (via Twitter), the new Battlefield 3 patch is currently in certification at Microsoft and Sony, which means the patch is complete and only awaits the go-ahead from the console makers. Of course, the PC patch could be released earlier, but DICE likes to update all three platforms at the same time.

Last time a patch was in the certification stage, we saw it released approximately one week later, which means — fingers crossed — we could see the new Battlefield 3 patch released next week.

      Why don’t you go wash your mouth with soap, soldier. Short comments, with nothing to say, really. Equality counts, not some fanboy loving his/her platform above all others. We’ve seen that by now. Time for something new.

    People that don’t think a patch is needed crack me up.

    First of all, you are on this website, so go look at the topics before this and read what actually is happening with this game before you post. Just about every topic being addressed by the patch, i have had an issue with at least once. Those who believe there is no reason to nerf the USAS and frag rounds are oblivious to the dynamics and fairness of the game.

      Or they are a USAS frag round offender with no aim. So many people use the USAS frag round combo it’s obviously over powered.

    Well it’s about time, although it has been playing quite well on ps3 for me. Will be nice to see some of the guns nerfed and guns balances (especially famas and usaa12)
    I don’t know about you guys but this patch will definitely change the gameplay for the better.
    I can also understand why pc players are Fustrated over having to wait for the consoles. Doesn’t make much sense does it…

    Patch or no patch. Half of the people on this site will still find huge faults with it no matter what. I constantly read the same, tired, negative arguments on this site. We all know who you are as we see your self opinionated rants on a daily basis. Opinions are ok, but I feel most of you losers should put your money where your mouth is and go away; never to play a BF game again. You would really do the community a favour. All I hear is “COD COD COD” like it’s a curse of humanity. If it’s not that it’s console bashing etc.

    I’ve never played COD myself or a Console Game but as an intelligent person, I can see COD is a vastly different game in so many ways. Consoles have the right to exist just as different races exist on the Earth; we co-exist. The elements that remind you of COD when you play BF3 are coincendence and nothing more. GET OVER YOUSELVES and your TIRED, DAY IN DAY OUT OPINIONS. Just leave BF3 and have some integrity. Jesus! How many of you have said, “I haven’t played this in a month”…..WE DONT MISS YOU! we dont care. Go get a dog up ya!

      Yeah but the problem is most of the servers lastly are empty, 64 vs 64 servers are rare right now, i remember the 1st mounth after release a lot of full servers and a lot of 64 vs 64 full servers (wich they were my favourite), now most of the servers are 24 vs 24 players even 32 players servers aren’t full for the most of times, so to have a very good multiplayer experience, a lot of active players are needed, because no players,means no multiplayer, many old games are still full of players and multiplayer is still alive keeping alive the game itself, and new games like to Red Orchestra 2 are near to be dead because a lot of empty servers in the list, and 1 or max 2 full servers every day, this means this game is dead, and the business on this game is dead, and sometimes we forget that videogames industryes, are pure business and nothin more.
      And if you feel mature, you have to admit that not just fan players are needed or just a small number of them to keep a multiplayer game experience alive, to keep the game itself alive, and to keep the fun alive, the problem is it is true a lot of bf3 players doesn’t play anymore and this is a bad thing, both for business and fun.

    What about the Comms Rose? I’m pretty psyched for that, and also IIRC wasn’t there mention of some additional features? It would be neat if we got a spare gun or something, maybe just one map to keep us tied over?

    I have nothing against the consoles, but I think it’s pointless to hold back the patch for the PC. They said that they want to bring PC “back into business” so why do they drop such a big feature of this platform such as instent updates? It’s not like the consoles will be hurt, or that the patch can be brought to them earlier, or it will have any effect on them but for PC it’s quite a bonus.

      Alan Kertz had already explained this.. he said they choose to release the patch for all platform at the same time because they would like to hear the feedback from all of us at the same time.. maybe if it didnt work they want to fix it again
