That is what I wanted to know. If he doesn't play the game and doesn't intend to, then STFU! Why does he even care other than being insecure.

I think a combanation of both with FXAA on medium to low is the best way to go...so post your AA settings, I'm interested to see what you guys think.

FXAA..trees look blurry.


Normal 4xAA big performance hit
2xAA and low FXAA are the settings i use. Best for performance and visual ratio with my rig.

Once i'm there I can see if my friends are playing, check out how populated my favorite servers, are and if I get the urge to play I simply hit join server. Keep in mind i'm doing all this without even launching the game! The entire process from me selecting join server to playing the game is completely automated, origin launches, signs me in, and I am dropped into the server.

Its quick, easy, and simple to use. I don't use the voice chat or party functions, we coordinate that through Vent.

Being full happens in all games. The server list finishes it search and by the time you click on it, someone has gotten in there. In TF2, you don't know if it's full until you launch the server and it tells you its full. BF3's way is better because it updates just as you click on it once.

It isn't stuck joining the server with out launching. It launches the game when it loads the level. Then if you have the box check to go to the game automatically it will pop the game up. I've never had an issue with that.

Exactly! This is what makes it so brilliant. You don't have to be in the game to get to the servers.

I also LOVE being in a party in battlelog, then one of us joins the whole party in a server that has room and we all get in the game at the same time and in the same squad. It couldn't be any more slick than it is. It is so much better than any other way of playing a online game. I think all PC online games like this will eventually move to this method.

Yeah.
Do you want me to quote two people saying how much they like it now? What do those quotes prove, other than the fact that the first quote is a flat out fallacy, it's not universally reviled, and the second quote just shows how inept the people at Destructoid are.

And I like how your bitching is constantly changing form. First it's how horrible the game runs, then it's whining over 80gb and now it's the "I'm not the only one defense".

Awful lot of teen angst going on over a product you don't even own.

Wow, people, some of us have some issues, some don't, and those who think it's the diamond in rough think that the people with legitimate issues are wrong and are dumb.

WTG on the people are dumb thing, hey dude, there's going to be issues even if you think this the best stuff out there.

There's multiple people in here that have the game and are not happy with battlelog, so don't say I'm dumb and that my computer came from wal-mart. You have no idea do you, just like to call people out and hide behind your monitor.

Have fun being the w1nn3r of teh 1nt3rn3tzzz...cause in the real world, people don't always agree with you.

I too have problems atm with BF3 being the 285 driver series and stuttering. It's been a week since release and no patches have been released yet, i know that eventually my problem will be fixed but at the end of the day there are many configurations of PC that EA/DICE need to get the game right for...It's a lot easier to do that on the now ancient 360 and PS3 as they are the same hardware configuration for each platform. Theres still no need to be hatin on the game because it isn't working right...post your problems you have and maybe someone will help you if you didn't come accross with all the negativity spoilt little schoolboy attitude.

Exactly, When i played BFBC2 and BF2 i used bf2stats, with battlelog i no longer have to do that. Almost everything i need is there and its all very convenient as you say.

Try ticking the box that says 5+ players then all servers shown will have 5 or more spaces available giving you time to press 'join server'. But still, there no need to be hatin on battlelog, it does what it does well and thats what it is intended for...Didn't you remember the problems with BFBC2 ingame browser ?

I would like to help you. I just got annoyed by you crying it is the worst POS ever. I understand that is frustration speaking but man just ask for help. I don't think you are dumb. I know you know how to use a computer. You came across as such a poopy pants that, I had to rib you a little. That is why I put my smilies in there. None of it was serious. I was using every cliche I could think of that people say when their stuff is working right and someone elses isn't working right.

Believe it or not, I was researching your problem Saturday and didn't find much.
