Been away from MP for quite some time, but ya know? Its way more fun now than before

Hey all - last I played the MP, the game was really laggy, the map rotation was terrible and the gun controls felt really off from UC2

 

So, I was curious as to the Mp when I popped it in today, but it feels way better. Map rotation is a lot better, and did not experience any noticeable lag - today at least

 

Serious question: what happened to classic mode? Wasn't that supposed to hit months ago?

It did, dude. I mean, there's literally no HC anywhere. Just Classic.

I finally saw it. Seems like UC3 but with specific loadouts

 

Blindfire is still beyond frustrating in this one though

I don't think it's at all apropriate to judge the MP from a day or two of playing (not saying you did something wrong, just that it's not really possible to judge it accurately from such a small period of time). The game runs through a great number of cycles. In my experience, sometimes it will be unbearably laggy for serveral days. Then the next week will have close to no lag at all. Other cycles include player style. One day just a week or so ago almost every high level I met was using Weapon Expert with an M9 RoF and RS. Like every game at least six times consecutively with different people each time. I mean, it seemed like everyone was using it and if I had just started the game that day I would have thought that was just what everyone used. The next day, I didn't see anyone use it. I could give several more examples but you probably don't want to read them. 

 

I'm trying to say that it isn't really in any "state" (not even in a high-blindfire state, sometimes everyone will aim in a game and sometimes not). It still has its moments and other times it seems like everyone is just a stat-wh***, try-hard. For me the only thing I think I could say about the MP is that it is getting more inconsistent. Maybe that's just because I have less patience with it. I used to be able forgive the BS and now I can't/won't. The reason I still play it is for two reasons, 1) It's still really fun (not sure why, but there's just something about it) and 2) I don't have enough money to buy BF3 (even though it's only twenty bucks Smiley Very Happy ....  Oh, Smiley Sad).

 

No idea what I was trying to say there. How about this, if it's fun, keep playing it. Smiley Happy

I wish I can give you my copy of BF3. Hell, I'll throw in a copy of BO2 as well. Just get my mistakes out of my sight.

What do you mean by "mistakes?" Do you just not like those games?

I too gave BF3 a solid shot. Despite doing ok at it, it has a serious lack of "fun factor".
Maybe the least fun I've had in an online shooter. Boring. Wish i never bought it honestly .

The thing I like about BF3 is the "screwing around" part. I played Battlefield 1943 (or some year in the 40's), it was so rediculous and so fun I just couldn't not like it (Actually not entirely sure if the same devs make both games). But I pretty much only like playing CoD with friends and cousins (great times and early mornings Smiley Very Happy).
