With the exception of #1 these are minor issues so far..



1. NERF DOWN THE SNIPER RIFLES.. Its already becoming BFBC2 on some servers. Game IS Just About UNPLAYABLE. YOU MUST DO SOMETHING ASAP ABOUT THE SNIPERS.. Read Your Forums..

2. I would also suggest maybe an option to limit number of snipers per side..

3. Friends list- Does not work

4. If you join a friend you can join in that squad.

5. The drone on tracks with the gun.. Some guy went 60-2 with it.. and his next games were no worse.. Either hes bs or that needs to be addressed.

6. I jumped on a humvee and it shot me straight up in the air. I was looking down but other players saw me at the humvee. I went up until I hit the ceiling box of the map..

7. You cant invite to a game thru steam.. we tried but no luck.- Does not work

8. Change the spawn animation. This was posted by GarandX. Maybe the first time in the game but not every spawn.. To what I have no clue..

9. Some sounds need to be fixed.. While in crouch you sound like this.. stomp nothing stomp nothing

10. Posted by wolverine.. Change nade throw distance and how it hops. You can throw nades a mile. Also they bounce like a rubber ball

11. You need to change Snipers ASAP.. Its running people off in droves.

Please feel free to add more or comment. There are more just gonna go play some more first.:salute:

+1 on all this especially the sniper stuff..On maps this big its no fun when almost everyone is ignoring the gametype (i.e. ground control) to simply sit and snipe for hours.
Please limit snipers so that they actually either become team players or have very little effect on the overall game.
At the moment you can see whole servers full of nothing but snipers (ala MOH).
Its a very simple fix, so please consider doing it via server option or Kaos are in danger of turning people away from the game if they let it continue.
At the moment it is only a minor if frustrating anoyance but it is growing and threatens to spoil a very fine game for many people.

Also is there any news of the HUD removal option for servers?

Way too easy to snipe. They should be swaying and some type of holding your breath system. My clan experienced the same problem on all the servers we were in, a whole bunch of snipers just hanging back not doing the objectives = NOT FUN! This issue must be addressed a.s.a.p. or like Butch said, the word will spread and will affect the sales.

The first time I tossed a nade I literally LOL'd! You can throw that thing into the next time zone and it appears to be a bit like a bouncy ball.

Shorten the throw distance and add some weight to that baby.

The animation for bringing up your sights is kind of strange. Its like part of the animation is missing, or is perhaps simply just way too fast. It works, I just don't like how it looks/ feels.

Agreed on the sniper thing, however how about let the server admin just configure what they want, meaning the ablility to turn the class off altogether. Always here the argument to this is it won't be fair for people leveling one way on one server and another on another server, long as both sides have the same options on the server thats all you need. Personally I would turn off sniper class as fast as I could if this were an option.

Another and maybe something I'm missing is a way to take down the choppers, we had a guy with a chopper up for a good 5mins in our server. It took over the game, and numberous people just ended up leaving.

Not sure if its there or not, but some sort of autobalance after the game has started. Also I kind of liked the way BO did not allow you to change sides so that you have clan ravaging going on.

I really liked the small map with out the big vehicles, any chance of getting some more maps quickly with this type of map?

Mod tools as quick as you can so that the talented guys can keep this game going.

Try to include details on each item. The better the description and the details on a suggested fix, the better.

Thanks for the feedback - and keep it coming!

BTW the friends list in the server browser tab is not actually to see your friends it turns out, its to see your friends Listen Servers that they host, so that you can join them, and as such apparently does work as intended.

I do not think the snipers are to strong, maybe just a tad, but not as bad as other feel. I do think there are to many sniping most of the time though. It would be nice to give the server admin the ability to limit the player amount that can choose the sniper class. Then the whole server is not snipers. But the snipers "feel" just about right to me. Head shots are 1 shot kills and the rest seem to be two shots. At least that is what I have been experiencing.

What I think the game really needs is more MP game modes.

I would like to see some objective based game without respawning if possible.

Really there are only two game modes. TDM and whatever they call Domination. They just either run with or without Battle Commander.

Would also be nice to give a server admin the option to turn off the Kill cam, player names, and things like that.

BTW the friends list in the server browser tab is not actually to see your friends it turns out, its to see your friends Listen Servers that they host, so that you can join them, and as such apparently does work as intended.
Would be nice if it could be setup to see the servers your steam friends are playing on as well.

Finally got to play the game (MP only so far) after 2h25 of downloading day one patch. Menus are... basic? can live with that. Max set for GFX options @1920x1080, game is looking good, map i played (Cul-de-sac) looks good too with enough cover, ladders, indoors...

My first MP game wasnt a great experience, huge lag despite selecting a UK server which was showing at 69ms ping in SB. As a result i had nades/special explosives being thrown with 3-4 second delays, as said above WTF is with the nades, you can toss them miles away!

The sniper stuff is indeed already getting annoying, got about 5-6 death shortly after spawn (cant select where you spawn? What is it based on?) - found that he does take a large amount of a clip to kill someone yet i seem to be getting killed in only 1-2 shots? Lag might be the issue here anyways, need to play more tomorrow...

Last thing, was playing ground control on Cul-de-sac, after my team got A & B the spawn remain at back on our side? It would make more sense to spawn closer to a recently acquired capture point?

EDit: Forgot to mention a glitch, at one point i respawned auto (without selecting in menu) but didnt get the spawn camera diving down, just spawned there and my all screen was very bright, as if gamma was upped X2. Next spawn was ok.

Don't know what can be done to the gametypes but the round starts at 25:00 and by 17:00 mark tops the round is over. We have these beautiful big maps and we are using about 1/4 of them.

The nades are useless! With or without a flack jacket you can just about sit on them and still survive it..

When one team is winning you don't see an enemy...Just 2 attack heli's a scout, a tank and 12 drones!

M200 sniper is a joke..With the thermal vision a mountain lights up like a christmas tree with all these poor bastards trying to hide with no luck.

Jumping is too arcade like. Reminds me of Duke Nukem3d....You can jump 4 feet in the air but you cannot climb onto anything.

If I see an enemy then he goes behind an object I can see the red writing above he's head until he pokes me and bam I get the kill..

Don't see the point of chat if it appears half transparent and tiny down the very bottom of the screen.

Friends thing is a pain in the ass. Why not have a section in the menu where I can invite a friend into my game.

Snipers are not over powered but they are un-realistic....I can shoot over 500 meters and put the cross hairs on you and even if your running across the screen I will still get the kill...

Once the frontline is moved there should be a timelimit to the losing side to get back and defend and not just sit behind spawn camping.

Our servers are 32 slot but we will be cutting back to 20-24 slots because with all the drones and scopes it is utter chaos.

With all these issues they are losing players every day. And with BF3 on the horizon I feel if they don't resolve alot of these issues first patch the servers will be empty by the second...

I think the sniper issue is probably the main issue with game for people at the moment.

It maybe fun for a small minority but for the majority snipers are simply killing the gameplay aspect of multiplayer.

I would suggest that Kaos look into giving server admins the option to set the amount of snipers per side or remove them entirely.

I think they'll then see a whole swath of servers running without sniper class which will just go to prove how unpopular adding unchecked sniper classes into a game really are.

EA released MOH without any checks on snipers and to a certain degree CODBO did it and quite frankly they are always unbalanced, too easy to use and overpowered and there are no incentives for a sniper to play as part of a team when a game gives them such huge rewards for simply staying put.

They invariably kill gametype play especially on objective type modes and that kinda defeats the point of releasing games with any objective modes for MP.
In hindsight a public beta would have highlighted this very quickly..
