BF3 AA
The latest Battlefield 3 patch has brought a lot of fixes, tweaks and improvements to the game, however, it did come with a few bugs as well. One such of those bugs is found with the AA missiles, which are currently having trouble locking on a target from time to time. According to DICE’s Gustav Halling (via Twitter), a PC server patch will be deployed next week, which will fix the AA issue, and include several back-end server tweaks as well. The server patch will also be deployed for consoles.

      Dude… many games have to be patched after a patch… let me name a few games that do that: Dungeon Defenders, Skyrim, any MMO on the market, etc.. It happens all the time. You must not play many games.

        The lock on is kinda screwed up I noticed it when I used the AA it has a few issues still works it’s just glitched at least for me.

        A fix for suppression will require a client side patch so that will take a while and most likely they will wait and bunch up more then one fix before releasing. The AA fix is server side so they can release the patch at free while the client side at least for consoles will have to go through an approval.

    What I want to see being added in bf3 is the ability to shoot through things. Thin walls, fences and so on. It was a big part of bad company 2 and from what I know it started from BF2. Secondly, I what vehicles to be fixed. It’s nigh impossible to get a roadkill with a car even though I hit someone dead on. Third thing is more of a visual thing. In bad company 2 there was an awesome effect when you destroy a chopper. It spinned uncontrollably for 1-2 seconds before blowing up. That was awesome!
    I don’t really care about AA. SOFLAM and JAVELIN combo can take everything out in a few seconds. Way more effective.

      roads kills are automatically given if the sprint button is pressed along with the gas pedal and it could be either straight on hit or side swipe.

      gas pedal only will push them off to the side.

      The only reason they’re fixing this first is because it’s a server side fix. Suppression is going to have to be another client side patch. So fixing suppression is not “this easy,” it is actually quite different.

Today are damn clan got pinned down at Kharg Island in the Offices and Construction Site part of conquest. I shot about four RPGs at one tank and the shit only disabled it to about 25%..

          honestly i cant believe all of the people that are complaining about the javelin being to strong. it was one of the most under powered weapons in the game and now its finally usable. it should be an instant disable if it hits you straight in the back of your tank, because its the weakest part. tank drivers finally have to think rather than charging straight into battle. you guys gotta stop hating on the jav.

          @ Askari… that’s probably because it required almost no skill to use… just peek out from …..ANYWHERE, and lock on (in 3-4 seconds) and fire and forget. With the way the SOFLAM is ‘actively searching for targets’… for an unlimited time, there are people running towards a tank now instead of running away…

          I am a tank whore.

          javelins are not THAT easy when you got a decent tankdriver + gunner. use ir sights to see any persons, when locking on, drive around buildings to break lock, when locked on and fired upon do same thing or deploy smoke while driving a few meters away.
          Fairly easy and if you still didn’t get the guy your gunner sucks.
          The rocket instantly disables regardless where you hit. that can depend on 50% damage to 75% from a rear hit. Also rpg/smaw do 50% on unguarded backend straight from behind. Two rocketshits will kill a tank from behind.

          Now the problem with the AA is that they are unreliable for actually hitting the target and doing damage. If you fly a chopper straight at the the guy firing the AA rocket, it will hit without any damage done. same goes for a 10-20% degree angle dive will let the rocket miss or explode without damage to the chopper. Finally the AA rockets fired from chopper/jets will hardly ever do actual damage. THAT is what they need and will fix.

          … yeah…. just “drive around a building”… It’s that easy… lol…

          and btw, “drive around buildings to break lock, when locked on and fired upon do same thing or deploy smoke while driving a few meters away.”

          …you can’t deploy smoke and have IR… they take up the same slot…

          I’m not commenting so much on the Javelin’s, but it’s the innactive SOFLAM that can pretty much cover the entire map and anyone can lock on from anywhere that I have a problem with. Some guys set up a SOFLAM in the middle of the hills, and you can’t see them , but you are getting locked on as soon as you leave your spawn…that’s not even close to being right.

    Screwed up suppression, paper tanks, AA trash…

    Still no Squad Voice chat (I have no reasonable explanation yet as to why it wasnt included, I guess I should say, that none of the reasons offered, to ME at least, are even remotely bordering reasonable)

    Still horrible short-fall damage… I mean IRL im a fatass, and I have jumped from the 2nd story of a building a few times, I might be in pain and hurt, or even injured, but Im pretty damn sure I didnt die from it (well, being pretty sure is relative… I am typing this after-all…)

    I take the short-fall damage and squad voice chat as the real killers for this game… I had an entire squad stand around me in 3 different maps in different places and watch me walk off, crawl off, crouch off, and even jump off a short distance to the ground only to have me (and anyone who thought it was just me) “suicide”… REAL PRO!

      Agree for the most part, but I think the real killer for this game is the netcode.
      Being shot at, getting to cover, proning… And die one second later.
      Bullets who are simply not registered when shooting at people.
      Mutual kills.
      Players who don’t see the same thing at the same time (huehuehue, I hide behind a tree so he won’t see me… *get killed* Ok, he doesn’t see the tree. Or the “preshot” problem, because some people actually see you before you see them, so they begin to shoot at you even if they are not in your vision range).

        I don’t know if you played bf3 recently but good luck trying to find a regular server with the normal amount of tickets and all the maps. It’s either those mixed servers with rush AND conquest AND team deathmatch or max tickets operation metro OVER AND OVER AGAIN, so I pretty much have no choice… Oh wait, you said I can rent a sever right? Now WHY THE FUCK would I want to pay for a fucking server to play something I USED TO BE ABLE TO!!! I’d rather cut my left nut off than give EA/DICE more money. I already paid about $70 for this game and I DO NOT want to pay for something we had since day 1. At this point I’m just playing something else because this is just bullshit. I never had a major problem with this game until now. Bad luck was pretty annoying, so were the frag rounds and the famas but this is the straw that broke the camel’s back, PURE FUCKING RETARDEDNESS!!! I just want more normal and hardcore servers with JUST conquest and JUST rush and JUST team deathmatch and ALL THE FUCKING MAPS without renting a fucking piece of shit server to play what I used to play.

          I’m fairly certain if someone from EA said “Hey! Rent-a-server for $70 or I will chop off your left nut”, I would probably chop off my nut rent the server and keep my nut.

          Those are just my priorities.

          I do agree with what you’re saying about finding a ranked server with a reasonable amount of tickets. It is a bit of a hassle now, but I kind of like the ‘pub’ server mentality instituted with these rental servers. Harkens me back to the old days of Counter-Strike and Day of Defeat.

    Fix the range on that Sh*t, its range is unbelievable, you cant even lock on to a jet when it flys overhead with its afterburners on

      The range of the weapon isn’t broken; DICE intended it to be this way.

      What they did was simply significantly reduce its lock on range, BUT they made the lock on time much faster, and made the rocket do a significant more amount of damage.

      DICE’s reasoning behind the changes is that they didn’t want people with these anti-aircraft rocket launchers to be able to cover a huge portion of the map.

    1. Air to Ground missiles still lock on laser painted Air targets.
    2. Spotting is a pain in the ass now. More and more people dont even bother.
    3. LMG are useless in all ranges due huge recoil at first shot (without bipod). Support class is dying.
    4. Suppression is a joke. First shooting wins. That + lowping or highping = godmode.
    5. LMG and HMG on Tanks shooting BB balls !!
    6. Stationary AA on some maps is a big joke – still covering over half map and after last patch have almost no spread and low drop bullets. And still cant resp in it on most maps so baserape runs forever.

      I’ve heard a lot of people saying LMGs are useless without a bippod but I haven’t had that problem. I found I’m still able to tear it up with my RPK using a foregrip and laser. As regards the heavier LMGs I can still get kills by using a foregrip its just a case of burst firing. Once you get a measure of it LMGs act like they did before the patch.

    stingers aren’t really designed for jets in the first place, I think all priority should be put on taking down attack helicopters as they are over powered

    Now tanks are useless so they need to be put back to where they were before

      Attack Helicopters being overpowered? They were never overpowered! At least on PS3 it was hard enough to stay alive pre-patch when 6 stinger-engineers were craving for your death, but post-patch it’s not even possible to even do a quick attack if 3 guys want to kill you!

        Yeah, no, a good attack heli pilot on PC is impossible to take down. And I’m serious about the impossible part – barring incredibly lucky RPG shots, jet ramming, direct fire weapons, or an entire ground force consisting of javelins and SOFLAMs, you cannot harm an attack heli. Largely, they just have to dip down, fly evasively, abuse below radar, hills, buildings, ecm jammer, and gunner flares, and there is no window of opportunity for effective targeting, period.

        Meanwhile, 10 roadkills later…

          I agree RUFEI, the attack heli’s -with even a mediocre pilot in- are impossible to take down with AA. Flarespam, ECM and below radar plus the very short stingerrange makes it impossible to hit them.

          Let alone lockon.

          The PC version of BF3 has major balance issues with air-ground.
