So... single player discrepancy.

Anybody else notice this:

The first mission, on the subway.  When that dude pops out and tries to stab you, hes got a H&K UMP on his back.  If you win that fight you end up pushing the dude out off of the train and taking his gun.  When you equip the gun its not a UMP its an AK74.  Lame.  I wanted the UMP.

Had a 25-0 match last night, I think it being on operation metro had something to do with it. Put about 40 hours into the beta lol.

That's why you are beastmode. I haven't been able to play much. Always getting connection errors. When i could get into a game it would kick me after a few minutes and give me the connection error.
Don't put down the bottle... just tape it to the back of the shield and put a straw in it.  WIN!

Here's a tip for the UK gamers:
I just ordered BF3 at SimplyGames.com, using Express Delivery, and I just received an email confirming it has been despatched (30 minutes after I ordered). So it should be here tomorrow. Total cost: 40 GBP

Game is FANTASTIC. Took a day off work today. Funny thing is, the audio is so awesome, I have a migraine, LOL.
Anyways here's some gameplay with some good teammates I found while lonewolfing this morning (no XBL friends playing at the time).

This one's one of my epic fails. Already has more views than the video above, LOL. I was expecting a tutorial prompt to tell me which button to press to pull the ripcord or that the chute would open automatically. I WAS WRONG, Lulz!

I applied to CaptSack's platoon.

yeah i jumped twice dying lol that part really blew me away...i was like wow! Any way i finally just picked up the contoller and started pushing all the buttons to finally realize it was A i had to push lol. great game

NOOB question. When scanning for servers (xbox), you can see the the ping rating. Yet, they use the 'cellphone' bars graphic.

By 'ping' does DICE mean the classic def. of ping (low is good) or do we follow the 'cell phone' convention that MORE bars are better connection? Thanks in advance.

Thanks! Funny thing was, when scanning West USA regions (my locale), EVERY DICE server was one bar with 3-5 people in it. I had better luck with the South and East servers yesterday, LOL.

For p.c. what loadouts do you guys use. I just got my copy of BF3 and im not exactly sure what to do. I admit I am a COD fanboy so implementing the same level of destruction on my opponents just aint hap-nin...yet.  Any good tips or BF3 videos out there. This is also my first time using a Keyboard so it's taking a minute to adapt.

So far I love this game...

Add me on Origin: BathtubFarts

I was carrying at least a 2:1KDR lastnight and I've only got a couple hours into this game and only a few unlocks (sprint, RDS, that front handle under the barrel of the rifle (name is totally escaping me right now). I could show you the Battlefield way to play.
