I hate that tanks are so powerful with the reactive armor but i think it's fair...i should be scared of a tank and not wanting to take it out the moment i see it.
i should be running for my life. it makes it more thrilling and challenging.
Wow...something I noticed today. This is a biggie for me at least.
So, I've now noticed a clear difference between the bipod and the grip.
Before all of this, I would test out the guns by standing in one spot because it clearly states that the grip is good for longer bursts.
Well, that's actually a "fraction" of its benefit. The bipod isn't really all it's made out to be either.
I mean, it's good but it's not really that helpful when you can easily be support and shoot much more accurately laying down with a bipod. You really only need the bipod as assault or engineer if you're going to camp it and you can't possibly pick support due to strategic reasons.
So now that we got that out of the way. Here's what I've found out.
If you have the grip, it's only truly useful if you like to strafe and shoot at the same time. Not strafe, stop and shoot...shoot while strafing. If you do that, then do not ever take off the grip...if you want to test it out yourself. Pick a spot and strafe while shoot your assault/carbine at full auto while keeping your aim at the spot you've picked. Notice the results of your dot or kobra.
Now do the same with the grip or without if you already had it before and see for yourself.
Another thing I wanna mention: I feel that the grip is fully utilized only on certain weapons...you can strafe faster with these weapons than any other. If you're going to shoot while standing in one spot, you're not really utilizing the grip much at all so if you are one of those people then pick something else than the grip because it lessens your accuracy by making the verticle recoil worse.
Here are the only weapons you can strafe faster with:
ALL KITS: All SMGs, you can now strafe with a pistol the fastest (it's the same speed that you run at, without pressing the sprint button) and some shotguns though none of these weapons have a grip but I just wanted to throw it out there.
Assault: FAMAS (recoil is too wacky), F2000, L85A2 (my fav, this $#@! hits hard and accurate at long-ranges, almost no recoil with full burst). The downside to these weapons is that they're less accurate in long ranges except as I mentioned, not the L85A2 so much because it's a slow weapon, so this way it's still a viable solution.
Engineer: QBZ-97 (no grip but more attachment options), A-91.
You will strafe half the speed with all the other weapons.
I love the L85 and the Javelin. I used the L85 prior to the patch so the buff only makes things sweeter. Such a beast for long range, just a bit sluggish up close.
I don't see you slying about any more on PSN mud....did you delete me tart? Not been on BF for a while and will be making an appearance soon.
lol that last part.
I wish people made a redvsblue sorta thing with BF3.
That was an awesome video dala.

Who's anticipating CC? I sure am and if the rumors are correct we may be having it on Jun 4th for PS3, I'm guessing EA/DICE will announce it that very same day on E3 and say it's coming out later on PS3 and week after for the rest.
I always use reactive armour and guided missiles, I've swapped from thermal to smoke post patch, miss thermal but smoke is a must now.
Does the PS3 Version have "Auto balance" to make sure the team numbers are even?
On PC Its the worst implementation of it I have ever seen it doesnt wit until you have died.
If you are in a party of friends it stops you from joining the same team to play as a squad.
Due to it not waiting until your death if you are piloting a chopper with gunners it will switch you over (without warning) leaving them to plumet into the ground.

Before the rented servers were introduced auto balance was solely being used before the start of a game to balance out the teams. And that didn't change. Once a game has started only the admin can make adjustments.
Plus, as you said yourself, the vast majority of servers on PC are rented, which only adds to what I said initially.

I dont think Admins should be able to kick people, i think a vote would be better i have had 2 Admins kick me just becasue ive killed them then you get the admins that make rules like "no base rape" "no glitch camping" and who do you see doing these things? yep that very Admin and you know they would kick anyone else doing it. I get they payed for the server but since its a ranked game i dont think one person should have that much power.
