By the way, I noticed this when (on that one rare occasion) I was playing Normal Conquest earlier. Was rolling convoy-style with a squadmate -- he had a tank, I had an LAV -- on Silk Road when an enemy scout chopper flew in to try and attack us. My squadmate landed a tank shell in the canopy, but both the pilot and the chopper survived (it was maybe 10m off the ground). He got out, and I gatted him down with the main cannon. Feeling lucky, I jumped out of my LAV, hopped into the heli and started repping, only to realize that the enemy team's entire heavy armor allotment had rolled up on us and proceeded to take us out with ease. Because, you know, STAFF shells and HE. (main reason I don't play Conquest: because armor rape is painful and not fun) However, while I was repairing, I was watching vehicle health number: 7, 8, 9, then all of a sudden 33, 34?!

Is it normal to execute the equivalent of an emergency repair like that with nothing but the blow torch?
Emergency repairs are always triggered by the repair tool, lol. There is no other way to trigger them. Once the helicopter hits 10% health, it instantly shoots up to 37%.

Yes, this is known as emergency repairs. This is intended, and happens on scout, attack ( I think? ) helicopters, and jets.

I'm surprised you've not heard of it, it has been mentioned in many large threads recently.

What can I say, I immediately gloss over anything that doesn't pertain to TDM or Domination. However, thanks to the patch this morning, most of the TDM and DOM servers were empty, so in an effort to scratch that battlefield itch I decided to brave CQ.

Emergency rep does two things: instantly restores a good chunk of health, and removes disable effects without having to repair to full.

Now that the repair tool is so much slower for the vehicles that have it, it's not really an issue anymore.

I am starting to think that the "enemy with 0 health left" could be more than just the game rounding off player health. I have recorded at least two weird incidences with enemies being left alive with 0 health.

The distance between me and the other player in the locker clip is less than 8 meters (~11 meters to B flag, enemy player less than halfway to the flag when I start shooting) so we are both doing max damage. The enemy player has full health when I start shooting (judged by his health bar) and he is (probably) not running defensive perks because in that case he would have 4 health left, instead of 0. I went through the clip frame by frame and he does receive damage four times (I could not distinguish individual hitmarkers so instead I counted how many times the enemy player took damage). It looks as though all my shots hit him either in the arms or chest.


I could not find any good ways to measure the distance in the second clip, but it would seem to be within (or very close to) max damage range (8 meters). Another thing: after watching the clip in slow motion it seems like I hit the enemy player with more than four bullets but the hits following the first four hits doesn't apply damage, but I'm not sure, it's quite hard to judge.

My theory: either the game is rounding incorrectly (and the players did have armor/I hit him in the legs/stomach), the game "rolls back" damage but doesn't inform both players, or there is a new bug that leaves players alive with 0 % health (OR I am missing something/these were just flukes).

And reading Youtube comments still gives me Turbo Cancer.

It really is quite frustrating when Helen Keller sets up her LMG in the only doorway in/out of an area.

What kind of question is that? Since when is cheese ever a bad idea?

Hardline is a fun and sometimes silly Cops and Robbers sorta thing and I think that's great. Or it would be if it didn't suck.

This one has been around since BF3, it is less present in BF4 yet still present:

Draw distance of some objects is way too short in surround resolutions, especially when inside a vehicle:

Teamwork is where players function by themselves, but their effectiveness is multiplied when they work together. Not a checklist of "did we bring a healer so we can start playing?"

With this, I'll rid MGO3 of infestation. Sans bad gameplay MGO3 will be torn asunder. And then it shall be free. People will suffer, of course - a phantom pain.

Reddit and Konami will rewrite the records... And I will be demonized in human memory. But... The thirst for good gameplay that I have planted will infest MGO3. No one can stop it now. The Rebalance Mod will unleash that thirst unto the future.

It appears that the 0 health thing is a display bug. I was playing TDM with my platoon yesterday and ended up losing a close range fight where the killcam said my mate had 0 health left. However on teamspeak he told me that he actually had 23 health left.

so THAT's why my chat box has been going screwy like that... Either way, I think I'm going to trick some idiot into typing "True" or "False" at one point if he's spamming chat.

New Bug?

I first encountered this today, in my first 2 games on the day, and my first since the patch.

This bug consists of when you press on something (vehicle etc) to deploy, your character spawns in but you stay at the spawn screen. You can see that character pov, but you're still in the spawn screen. The only way out is to quit the game.

Has this been seen? I scanned over the bugs in the op, but didn't see it.

Anyone else experiencing it?
Personally, i don't take a stance on whether or not there is a creating entity because i'm humble enough to realize, in my fucking insignificance, the concept escapes my comprehension with a lead of 9001 light years.
