The fact that if you tilt your head, Caspian may look like Overgrown in Cod4 is icing on the cake

Finally started somewhat dominating the skies consistently with the planes.







The funniest thing is going after infantry with a combination of unguided rockets + plane machinegun (each of the weapons is quite powerful enough on its own ).

Just by getting good at turning with the tightest radius, I can defeat 90% of pilots out there. The only way I die is if more than one person has targeted me with heat seekers (which you can't really do too much about) or the person has equally tight turning radius as me, and out manoeuvres me outside of the turn.

This especially caught my eye.

Improved VTOL fighter jet (F35) performance
Based on community feedback, we have improved the performance of the F35 in Back to Karkand to better match that of the SU35, particularly when it comes to turning speed.

FULL JUNE (“MULTIPLAYER UPDATE 3″) CHANGE LIST BELOW
Vehicle related changes
> Tweaked the F35 handling to more closely resemble that of the SU35 (see above).
> Jet & helicopter ECM Jammer should now deflect missiles more reliably when it is active
If they don't screw other things up, get rid of op suppression, should be good patch.

Lol @ this game.

I finally decide, after hitting level 50, to try another class out other than engineer. I try out assault, it's fun, having a good time with it. I unlock the FAMAS and decide to use it since I'd heard so many good things. Keep in mind I'd played this game for months now and never once tried that gun.

So what happens right after I get the FAMAS? That rifle, and ONLY that rifle, suddenly develops a bug where your stats aren't counted after the round and you lose points and unlocks you got. I got the frickin flashlight 3x in a row before I found out what was going on.

Seriously? :/

Many people have reported their stats not saving. I don't think it is just that gun.

As a support guy, I actually like the increase suppression, especially when playing Operation Metro. And it looks like my favorite assault weapon, the F2000, will be even more beefy.

Glad to see the dart issue is fixed, although it's been fun watching both teams giving guys with darts grief.

theyre doing maintenance in the morning to fix the stats bug. how the hell did you make it to level 50 without playing the other classes? In bf2 there were 7 classes and they each had strengths and weaknesses depending on the situation. I guess things have changed tho and with so many customizations it doesn't really matter which class you are..shame

looks like the eauk battlefield forums are shutting down. This is where all the hardcore bf fans talk but lately its been so incredibly negative that it looks like EA is doing away with it.
