Not at the moment. S3_Zyklon is my BL. Do many of the people on here play on the same server some nights? I'd like to play with familiar people for once.

You may be better off asking Jeff that question. I've been busy making 8k points per game with my older brother and his clan, but he's off to his job now so I'll be playing with you gays. From what I've seen, you may see Rick, Rollingbrownout, and Jeff playing together.

A lot of times, I can unload my machine gun all over their head, even when it's the only thing showing, and even though I start firing a second or two before they ever see me, they can spin around and place 2 or 3 shots and I die, and they still have 50% health. I want to throw my mouse across the room after those kinds of deaths. Or if they are sitting perfectly still, and I'm only 50' away from them, across a street or something and I fire my sniper rifle at their head, I cannot get the ******* headshot. It's bullshit. Maybe they have lower ping than I and get the advantage of seeing things a fraction of a second sooner than I do. Even though I try to stay in servers with a ping of 100ms or less.
Bullet drop. You've gotta aim high to get headshot.

I have only 6 more hours then you played and more then x2 the points across the bored. This all tells me you need to stop playing recon as your off trying to play cool guy sniper while ignoring objectives.

But for reals recon blows unless your scouting and using soflam. Play some support and assault and you will do better.

When i get the JAVELIN unlocked we can do some soflam pain.

I can run and gun all day, but that is no fun to me. I'll get COD 2.5 if I want to do that. Sniping is a lot of fun, and I usually end the game in the top 3. I've defended objectives by myself plenty of times. I may not be the most contributing player, but snipers do have a roll. And your a ******* dick btw. It's a game. BF3, IT'S SRS BUSINESS. Also 6 hours is a lot when I've played a total of 12h.

I have come to prefer running Battlelog in firefox instead of Chrome. Chrome sometimes takes a long time to receive data from EA it seems.

I'm thinking I'm gonna put this game away until they release some fixes. I'm tired of playing an incomplete game that constantly locks up, crashes and takes forever to load sometimes. Then you are dealing with a **** ton of programs just to play the game. Has anyone looked at task manager after the game launches? What happened to the day of opening a game, and only the game is running. Now it's Origin, about 5 instances of Chrome for whatever reason, BF3 and a few other little programs.

Well I got my comp up and running last night with the new psu and the two 460s . I ran a benchmark test but didn't get the scores I thought I would, probably need to mess around with it, but it's not that big of a concern. I turned the settings to ultra except for no AA, I think my cpu/memory is bottlenecking in that department. Looks really pretty and runs super smooth!

I should be on tonight for quite some time

To isolate cpu/mem bottleneck, lower gfx options to lowest, if performance doesn't improve then the bottleneck is definitely cpu/mem, if it does, then you need more gpu. Of course always make sure drivers, DirectX, and patches are up to date 1st.

So this is odd, after I got the SLi working the game likes to freeze/hiccup whenever big effects like explosions happen. The fps seems smooth at any other time, but the game almost wants to freeze completely for like 5 seconds :(

Maybe its my mobo drivers?

I'm not all that familiar with sli, does it have game profiles like xfire? updating all drivers would be a good place to start.

This is what I was talking about in the chat last night. Catalyst Application Profiles are a means for them to quickly update driver configurations for specific games instead of releasing an entire driver revision.

I did a quick search and it doesn't appear that Nvidia offers separate application profile updates. Flier, are you running the latest beta drivers?

LOL xfire is a chat app and sli is a video hardware bridge that lets you run more then 1 nividia car of the same chip set as 1 gpu.
