    Lol split screen is worth it every fps game should have split unless pc gamers

    I am not a Bc Vet but i like this game and i have friends over my house all the time we play games and stuff and Split screen not in this game just made the multiplayer experiance for me go to hell

    And for all u dumb people saying need more 12v12 SDFU learn stuff b4 you talk


    Pc=Upgradable every month or 2

    systems cant be upgrade untill a new system is out

    so adding more people to the game would make it lagg and u couldnt even move so SDFU and quit Bc3 if its such a problem

    Dice im looking forward to playing ur game but please add Split screen in the near furture would make this game 10x more fun for the people like me

    I’m confused. With the faction weaponry. Is it that you would choose a faction at the beginning at only play as them? Or does it switch sides each round like in Bad Company 2? I got the game yesterday and haven’t gotten to use multiplayer yet.

    They could’ve at least made the jet portion of the game more realistic. It’s only 4 jets, 2 of which aren’t even used as much as they put them out to be. (Frogfoot and Super Hornet). Yes, on the aircraft carrier-deployment maps, the F18 Hornet (the Navy’s primary fighter). Operation Firestorm should be an F22 map. Caspian should be an F15 map. Here’s how the RU counters should work out, based on comparison:

    Kharg Island- F/A- 18/ MiG- 35
    Caspian Border- F15/ Su-35
    Operation Firestorm- F22/ PAK FA T-50
    Gulf of Oman and the other map in Back to Karkarand I can’t think of-
    F35/ PAK FA T-50

    The designers made a big mistake by implementing a arcade ranking system like cod. To explain. There is no more honor in playing the game, so no more challenge. Furthermore they left out the commander, so the game does not make sense anymore.

    The designers knew this up front, so it is a shame they ignored the comments of players before the release. They were so excited over the new graphics and felt the competion of Cod (for little children) and pushed the cod riduculous ranking in the game. a 100 Times high rank? What’s the use? The designers should be ashamed of themselves.

    I did not buy the game for these reasons (saw my sun playing, but he also says good graphics, but no more strategic play).
