Made it to 90, I guess the real grind starts now. Five days to get to 90 and probably another five day to get to 100. By the time I get to 100 the ranks will probably be at 130.


Yeah no.... You're gonna need a hell of a lot more time than that.

For perspective (look at my playtime and estimated time to level up):

In all honesty I would totally buy a port of BF3 with all the maps included without doubt.

I only got to experience it on PS3 and we all know how much of a Battlefield experience that was.

God I loved those map packs too, I even liked 12v12 Armored Kill...

Let's not forget Aftermath, such an awesome DLC. In fact they were all great, even Close Quarters. The maps were awesome and it was a really nice change of pace.

Ah, misread your back part. In any case, people killing themselves to get the ammo back isn't the problem. Given that they're going to die before the resupply happens anyway. This just slows the entire process in the hope of getting people on boxes (which they won't do if they auto-resupply).

I think that, given the choice between sitting on an ammo pack for ten seconds or disengaging completely from the battle for 45 seconds (since suppression stops auto-resupply), most will go with the former. You also have to get on boxes to resupply all your gadgets (eg you spawn with one AT grenade, auto-supply a second after a bit, but can only get a third from an ammo box).

Damn, one of the new medals is bugged. I got the 25 kills with the 4 main classes as the French army but it's not counting my tanker kills.

Is there a zodiac dog tag challenge on at the moment? I haven't seen one mentioned since the last one finished.

Aftermath and Endgame was all bangers.

Loved Armored Strike from the Armored Kill pack too.

You have to ditch your tank and do it on foot.

Can't complete the medal of la salle because no one is playing operations :(

It blows my mind that I ran into someone who was rank 100 in early December.

What are the XP requirements for 100-110? I saw someone at 110 during the double XP event couldn't comprehend how they'd managed that.

I cried when I saw the jump from 98-99 to 99-100 haha.

Not nearly as bad as 90-100. If I was rank 100 before quad XP started I would've been rank 110. It's 500,000 XP per level. During the event I averaged 700,000 score per Operation match.

Expansion releases today for non-premium folks, right? Kinda sad how little talk there is about it. Staggered releases like that really do fragment the player base.

I would kill for a BF3 remaster on xbone/ps4. Never got to play that one as intended with a full 64 players.

The game just doesn't have staying power. Lack of content up to this point and ridiculous balance changes don't keep people around.

I absolutely loved BF3. I played the crap version on PS3 though so I never experienced it in all of its glory but I was fond of that game. I loved the map design; Yes, that includes Operation Metro.

I was more referring to the lack of chatter (esp. here on GAF) about the new expansion, and my speculation that it is because of a lack of content/balance changes. No doubt there are a lot of people playing, but not many core BF GAFers it seems.

Yep, definitely seems like a muted release here on GAF. I mean, there's no issues finding games, but it feels like expansion releases on BF4 were a bigger deal than this.

They were. :(. That being said, I'm really liking the new expansion and content. I'm just sad that about 1/2 of the normal crew I play with on XBox are about to get swallowed by Destiny.

Same. But I hit rank 100 already and I can hold my own quite well. So it's not really a problem for me anyway. Operations 24/7. I will say though that Fort De Vaux is terribly unfair if the attacking team steamrolled defense and then defense get the sentry kits on the first sector. It's utter bullshit how close defense can spawn to flags and have sentry kits to go to town with.

It's has Balance issues for operations. Most of the time the defenders win.

Surprised it's hard to find any populated US West servers on PC nowadays.

Yeah, I think there is something wrong with the matchmaking. I’d had this problem since the 14th when the DLC was first released. Before that I never had a problem playing only on west coast servers. After the DLC the game starting just putting me in east coast servers all the time. If you go into the server browsers, you’ll see there are plenty of west coast servers. So I think there is something wrong with the mm and it’s just throwing west coast players into east coast servers. I can’t use the quickmatch function anymore because it’ll put me in east coast games.

Anyone else having trouble with BF1 XB1 lately? I can't finish a damn match without getting a "lost connection to the EA Servers" or "missing multiplayer privileges" message. It's infuriating.

Oh is it that's good to hear, makes sense how that person was 110 during the event.

So you would of been doing more than a level per Operations match, I went 95-99 in the event, now just the slog to 100.

Decided top pop in here and praise the Gewehr M95 infantry, easily my favorite weapon in the game right now. All the practice with bolt actions in Red Orchestra 2 translated nicely to BF1, with BF1 being a little easier to hit your shots with. Also, range adjustment on the sights plays a much smaller part in BF1 than RO2, I pretty much always keep it at 75m and have no trouble hitting 200-300m shots.

On PC it's totally usable even on assaults and flag captures thanks to the iron sight. According to bf tracker I'm in the 0,9% of scout Score Per Minute thanks to it. Combine it with a pistol that has a fast firing rate and you'll be fine at all ranges. If I hit my first shot at an enemy at close range with the 95 I always switch to pistol to finish them off.
I have started to use Scout and this weapon quite a bit recently. It's fun and pretty satisfying to shoot. My problem is finding the right gadgets to use. I did start to use the periscope to assist far away teammates and allied snipers so it's helpful. The trip wire bomb seems so dang inconsistent for me, so I switch that to K Bullets every now and then.

So started to play Frontline the other day and what was DICE thinking of having 5 man squads leaving one man out? Either make it a 4 man squad of 3 teams or let that one man out join a squad so he doesn't have to spawn by himself.

You'd think. But I have never ran into a situation with Ammo 2.0 to where I really want the ammobox. As a sniper, I can just fire my flare, hide somewhere and wait for it to resupply. How is that helping Support?

Trying to unlock the DLC weapon for the medic class where you have to get 50 kills with the 1907 Sweeper - damn, what an awful gun!

I know I usually can't hit the side of a barn, but I can't seem to even get close with this thing.

Lol thats the best medic gun next to the mondragon. I have more kills with that sweeper than any other haha. Have to play super aggressively with it and use it's automatic fire, it's crazy accurate at range even at full auto.

Oh shit, then I DO suck! LOL!

I wasn't using it at full auto, maybe that was my problem.

So when your team does get a train on Argonne Forest. Do you try to capture C and then continue to get close to where the other team spawns (A+B or D+E) or do you stay back and use the mortar? I'd try to get C and rush to the other team's spawn so your team stops getting pushed back to your own spawn.

Mentioned a new UI also when I logged in on PS4 and said to restart the game. Appears to navigate much quicker, an absolute god send if it stays like this.

Yeah I didn't like it either. My buddies are trying to use it now and they hate it also. It's so weak it seems.

But the gun you get for those unlocks is beastly. If It had a bigger mag it would be OP. 2 shots and dudes go down. It's amazing.

i find behemoths rarely change the outcome.

if you're getting a train, you're going to lose.

Sweeper is solid as hell.

Not necessarily. If you can managed to get it for the last sector on Argonne, you'll most likely win.

I always immediately make a beeline for C at the start of the match. Jump on the Maxim, then wait for teammates to enter the cap zone and cover them while they capture the flag. At that point, If I'm on the American side, I'll backtrack a bit and get on the AT gun. If I'm German, I'll swing around to the left of C and jump on that AT gun. The number of infantry kills I've gotten in this map by camping the FK 96 is disgusting.
