    Re: Q/A With 5 BF3 maps Starting Soon

    Few quick Notes from this podcast:

    Less feeling of "dieing in one hit"
    UMP damage tweaked at longer range.
    Blue flashing screen flicker issue gone

    One map with 6 tanks per side. Believe it was firestorm.

    Mini map, "mega map" much clearer and closer to BF2 map.

    Mortar:
    Set up mortar then the mini map expands, you see q spotted enemy locations and can move a crosshair on the map over locations to determine mortar aim. Damage ranges from 50%-1 hit kill. No mention of round type, people only used HE.

    Squad Management: Squads up to Hotel, can see SM classes and perks, perks don't stack.

    Javelin:
    Locks on like Stinger, similar lock on time. Damage similar to RPG. At longer ranges fires in top down mode, closer it direct fires.

    TV Guided Missile for Helicopter:
    Less range than BF2, not one hit kill. Similar click to adjust flight path as BF2.

      Squads up to Hotel? So only 8 squad maximum? I guess all pilots on a map will be in one squad. No separate chopper squad or jets flying as wingman. Or two man sniper recon squads. A full server will use up all squads exactly. It's like these Dice guys have never experienced a real Bf2 game EVER!

          Shouldn't be an issue for TG - I'm sure that the "You must be in a squad" requirement will be countered with "No locked squads"

          No problems, and if a squad has a pilot in it so be it.

          I'm sure we'll all find a way to make it work just fine.

            I'm not worried about TG. It's just another deviation from general team management. They just don't think and its frustrating.

              squads up to hotel strongly suggests 8 squads, at 4 man squads = 24 players can be in squads, with 32 a side that means 8 who cannot join a squad
              this has implications for squadless autokick program

                You may want to consider brushing up on your multiplication.

                8 x 4 = 32

                          This off screen video shows squad management area starting at 53 seconds

                          http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EEmOQ...tailpage#t=49s

                          From what I can make out.

                          - Alpha through Hotel listed - X/4 gives count
                          - You have to click each squad to see who is in what - can join whatever.
                          - SL has star - listed up top
                          - The squad you are in is checkmarked.
                          - Privacy Option - Public - other options surely Private and one would assume possibly a friends only option
                          - Leave Squad Listed - Assume Join Squad also still there
                          - There is one line of text below the squads listed I can't read - anyone?

                              Pretty dense with buildings in that area. Some guy on another forum gave some impressions of 64 CQ in this thread. Dunno if legit but map sounded great if true.
