<p>Helicopters are pretty hard to fly on PS3, even with a button and stick layout similar to the BC1 settings I used in Bad Company 2</p>

Yup i crashed like 3 times just after lifting off the ground. But them mothafuckin jets are dope as hell, just couldn't figure out how to fire a missile but the controls were easier than the helicopter...

You gotta use the same e-mail you put in when you made your xbox live accounts.

Anyways, no one is seeing me in this game..

mics are choppy in game on PS3. It's a known issue that the developers are supposedly working on.

The 360 servers are shit, crashing everyday for hours at a time. People underestimate the AT mines doe, getting 10+ a round with them

This is why they shouldn't have released such an outdated beta. They are having a bunch of problems that they shouldn't be having, and I feel like if they would've released a beta that was almost identical to the retail version, a lot of these problems could've been sorted out before release. I mean on PS3 the mics don't even work in game, how does that happen? You release a multiplayer game and don't test voice communication before you release it? All these little mistakes by the developers just piss off all the people who buy the game.

Not only that, sometimes when I play shit freezes or while it's loading and I have to reset my ps3

If you're just on some TDM we aren't even playing the same game son.

Starting to beast in the jets. Shot like 6 or 7 down in one round. Gotta be sure to blow that shit up before they eject (should have made animations for that). Can't wait to unlock the homing missiles for some ground devastation.

This guy has some pretty sick jet play



He plays on PC but he uses a 360 controller. Just takes practice and a couple weapon unlocks.

TDM's spawning points need to be fixed. For the last 4 games I feel like I just spawn raped the fuck outta the poor bastards I was playing.

Eh, back to rush.

That guy in the vid is decent. Too many disables and vehicle destroys w/o scoring the killshot. I use a lot of similar tactics though as far as switching to 3rd view to help tailing, etc. I hear the fire extinguisher replaces the flares so I doubt I'll be using it. Plus you get maintenance at some point anyway.

I need to play some more rush. I'm usually on some og conquest, but will probably start switching it up more soon. Looking forward to the back to karkand dlc next month.

On PS3 I have a horrible time doing more than just a bit of damage to stuff. The jets move so fast through the map and without the missiles unlocked I have a really hard time using them effectively.

You get the first missiles fairly early. Are you keeping the throttle open? That was a problem I had at first, but now once I'm airborne I actually decelerate (not too much- you'll fall from the sky). Try playing around with your speed it'll make a world of difference.

How do you decelerate? I didn't realize you could do anything but turn the afterburners on.

Left trigger to throttle down on 360 so I'm guessing L2 on ps3.

That's the problem, it's too easy to predict spawn points. The server spawned people right in front of me.

Changed my sticks to legacy, I think I left the buttons at default. Control all movement and acceleration/deceleration with my left and right thumbsticks. My jet buttons are default because there's not much to control with the jets.

Attempted to log into psn today only to be greeted by "This account has been banned or temporarily suspended."

Call up sony to see wtf is up and apparently I used some "Offensive Language"on fucking home AUGUST 28th, over a fucking month ago. My shit is suspended for 2 weeks.

Smfh.

What the heck, that's the first time I've ever heard of something like that happening. Does that mean you messaged someone and they reported it??

Oct 30, 2011 @ 21:32
No, I was on PsnHome. You can basically walk up to anyones avatar and report them and it's completely anonymous. Regular Psn interface doesn't have a report option, only block.

At least my console wasn't banned/suspended.

I tried legacy in the choppers, but i was already too used to default and it wasn't going to happen. They're definitely harder to fly than the jets. Like someone said earlier it just takes practice to get it down.

What were you even doing on home? Last time I checked that out it was desolate as fuck.
