BF3 revisited, five years on...

Hi... Been gone for a couple of years from the game and this forum, but with Battlefield 1 lurking I decided to binge a little on BF3 like in the old days... I was hoping to re-discover what it was that I loved so much about this game, and see if there is enough of a desire to take the plunge on a PS4 and Battlefield 1...

Anyone else still playing?

I tried BF3 the other day with a buddy.

It was canceraids. 10Hz updaterate is absolutely unplayable. There are those that say that BF3 had "great hitreg and netcode"—they must be completely retarded.

I think we lasted maybe an hour before giving up.

"you obviously don't know what an argument is as there is only one person battling. Do you really fucking think I want subs? You think you can act all big and powerful just because you sit on a computer at least 6 hours a day like the probably nerdy unwanted retard you are with 4.3k subs? You think 4.3k subs is a lot? LOL you need medicine man. I don't want any subs as i just have a google account for other media and writing comments. Think twice before you act. You even said in your video you aren't that great of a player, and the comments agree you aren't. Maybe you should once again think twice before you act, stop being such an annoying, ignorant bastard that everyone wants to shut up, and god, literally, just shut up. Your voice gave me a headache :s"

"As a youtuber shouldn't be trying to be reeling in your viewers with exciting stuff being said not your boring ass commentary for your video"

"The more you watch his vid the dumber he gets I swear he's borderline autistic look I got shot behind cover beacuase thin sheets metal are unpenetrable. Bf4 is just as quiet and tactical as bf3 random explosion in the background . Player has dissconected from chat
You started playing bf3 and never touched bfc1/2. Please do yourself a favor and shutdown your generic cod channel down"

"Nice clickb8 Faggot w8ting for your shit tier video to disable comments . Fucking newfag cancer go play some cod you activisiom cock faggot"

"I don't see why he [MarbleDuck] always tries to shit on levelcap he is better and has a million more subs...and also "there isnt a best gun in she game there are guns that are better that others at different engagement distances" yes thats true and whichever is the best/most average at all of them is the "best gun""

"Marbleduck you don't know shit lol levelcap knows more than you do you cant talk about how someone puts up garbage when you do yourself your a newcomer to YouTube acting like you know shit step up in the food chain first then you have the right to talk otherwise your just a fish trying to compete with sharks"

"Why don't we just witness "LevelCap vs MarbleDuck" One on One both on Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4 seen as there is so much Controversy about the Two Youtubers"

"stfu cunt, BF3 was way better end of discussion"

"Stfu man, you're be littleing the most looked upon Battlefield Youtuber. No one cares about you, how much of an ego you have, or quite frankly your opinion. It's a fucking game.... Does it really fucking matter? Pathetic man."

"fuck you asshole, dont talk shit about total"

"Wtf is your problem? You have no subs and he has millions, yet you pick on him like some kind of stubborn, ignorant, rude child born with a silver spoon is his mouth. It's easy to do that, for example... You said there was no background noise yet there is. You say you're a fairly good player, you're not."

I like to play BF for it's vehicles, combined arms and whatnot.
BF3 facilitates that in a very minimalistic manner with a total disregard to balance when it comes to vehicles.

Leaves the infantry gameplay.
Last time I tried, I remember the abundance of M16A3 and M416-users jumping like rabbits and rezzing and dying and reviving and... that's it.
Its awfully shallow and many maps (both TDM and CQL) fail the basic standards.

Nah, better play the still well populated stand-alone mods that came from BF2 (same engine) for some proper, well seasoned/properly cooked nostalgia.
BF3 is something that can be well forgotten, I'm definitely not playing it anymore as playing it mainly draws the attention into it's many downfalls, instead of gameplay.
RIP Sraw

You mean the M16A3 and the AEK-971 rather.

Speaking of those two guns, I have not used either in more than a year in hopes to actually improving my gunplay.

"Total disregard for balance" actually sums up BF3 in general if you ask me. I do think a lot of those expansion maps were great though and I'm sad I only ever got to play them on PS3 12v12. I quite liked the rocket artillery, AA and grenade launcher variants of the vodnik and humvee and of course the murder van. BF4's expansion maps are pretty lame by comparison. Armoured kill and aftermath maps with 64 players must have been pretty great. I definitely don't miss the bunny hopping and revive trains though. Even BF3's great bipod M240b could barely hold back the tides.

I definitely agree with you on Armoured Kill being a great expansion for "Battlefield 3". Both Alborz Mountain and Death Valley are favourites of mine for Conquest.

it's good to see that people finally have my same opiniona after... what? 3, 4 years?
i guess that's what i get for not uploading the videos of those horrible moments(i actually recorded them) but seriously, is my opinion really that useless, uninformed and untrustworthy? i knew it was bad, but not so bad that it would take all these years for people to catch up...


naturally marble i'm not referring to you, i know you know that from a while, but it's only recently that people started to realize the truth.

also to be fair, bf3's balance still was better than bfh... simply because at least the weapons in that made a little of sense, in bfh, they're just crazy to say the least.

stuff mostly unrelated to BF4 that interests nobody

I think it was the best they could pull off at that time and the map design made up for the balance issues.

However the Air-ground imbalances were just too much to cope with. Way more unnerving than the M16 being slightly superior over the other weapons.

Only reason to launch BF3 again:

Azadi Palace

I wanted to try it out again. Luckily there are many awful players around so it was enjoyable to play (until M16Tryhards appeared), but idk why, but something engaging was missing.
Oh yeah, Map design was dull.

Once I got accustomed to the open maps, I dont want to miss them.

You should play with me instead o3o you'll get much more entertainment trust me!

Well at least I found Rush servers faster than I did on 4. Then again, I'm prolly the minority, but each time I check, its either in another country or some server hardcore/strange rules on 4 and there is no G3 there.

The DD Armageddon servers were thankfully not discontinued. They still support it to this day.
