    Some of the shit the Helicopters can do is pretty fucking OP, agreed but I think the laser designation and Javelin could be out and it would be a more skill based game.

    What's the compatability like on this using a 360 windows controller?

    You can almost control everything like a 360, just the loadout menu's you need a mouse and keyboard for. If you never need to change your loadout, you can always use the controller to select your spawn point and spawn.
    You'll get pwned, though. I use it and have to stick to vehicles or engi just to survive and get points.

    Cool cheers dude. Can't decide whether to get it on 360 or pc. How come i'll get pwned on it?

    Because aiming on a controller is much more diffiult that aiming with a mouse, you will lose pretty muchh every one on one. I prefer a controller for vehicles, but I would strongly recommend using kb&m for the on-foot parts.

    And definitely get the pc version over the 360 one. I've played both and the 360 version really is poor in comparison (and not just he graphics). Most of the maps are designed with more players in mind.

    Yeah don't get 360 version as nearly all themaps are boring on conquest. I wish I could play on pc!

    Awesome, cheers andy! I'm all up for keyboard and mouse. I had modern warfare 2 on pc and sucked with KB+M and as soon as i played on 360 i was miles better. I'm guessing BF3 isn't as twitchy though so i'll prob get on with KB+M.

    Will prob pick this up on PC real soon then!

    Some people do find playing with a controller easier, but remember that if you play against people who are used to kb&m then they will be able to react very quickly compared to you.

    I have recently come back to PC gaming after a 7 year break, and it took me quite a few hours to get used to aiming with a mouse again. Getting a gaming mouse helped, even though it was only a cheap one (20). Just be prepared to die quite a lot until you get used to it!

    I do occasionally. I'm totally shit though.

    I play almost every day on PC and I'm fairly good.

    I have yet to get Premium for it, though, which makes finding a suitable server with a decent player count and ping pretty difficult.

    I think the premium pass is only 20 at the moment - it's well worth getting, there really is a lot of content. Be prepared to be downloading for a long time though.

    If I've not played for a while, I usually warm up by playing something like Gun Master or Scavenger for a while. It seems to help me get back into the feel of the game. The fast pace allows for a lot of shooting practice in a short time.

    Currently less than that on Amazon.com

    Just use some random Alaskan address (so as to avoid local taxe), and off you go.

    Oh I know. I want to get it, but at the moment I've got absolutely no spare money. Hopefully I'll have Premium before BF4, though. :/

    This is utter bullshit.

    I'm still on the hunt for premium (mostly for the BF4 beta, natch) but the code alone is more expensive than the game AND code. What the fuck is that all about?

    30 for Premium Edition, 40 for Premium code. Fuck you, EA.

    I just picked up the vanilla version of this game for a tenner, as part of getting back into PC gaming after a long absence.

    Would anyone still be up for slightly less random multi-player sessions of this with me in the coming weeks/months?

    I would be, but I never sign on to Origin so always forget about BF3...

    Add me to steam if you fancy a game and ask me on there: andytheadequate is my steam ID

    I reinstalled BF the other week, played an hour and got mauled. Squading up might make for a bit more fun.

    Sounds like there're a few takers...

    I'll be playing tonight, so look for "flip_45" in steam or origin and we can get the ball rolling.

    That said, it would be great to have a BF3 sensei along for the journey, so it's not repeated pwnage for the entire evening...

    I thought the grenade spamming on Metro console was bad until I witnessed 64 player grenade spamming on Metro PC :)

    The vanilla BF3 maps were appalling, no idea why they'd bring them back when they've got so many classics from the older games to draw on.
