It's noticeable that more than half of the BF3 gaming community does not take advantage of the tools that are given to them in the battlefield, more importantly the minimap. I have seen almost my whole team not being able to spot the shooter, which appears as a red arrow on my minimap when I have it expanded, where our blue arrows appear disoriented shifting every which way trying to find the firepower to track the enemy. Had my team been using this minimap, they would have popped the enemy before he/she killed three of my teammates. I write this to encourage all of you to spread the importance of the minimap throughout the BF3 gamer community. Thank you.
For once, some is logical in ze forums bout how to use ze minimap. Shall we expand zis to ze other players my Comrade?
Wheres my Wodka?
Because when people are in the game, i'm spotting like mad. but some not all people don't tend to check the HUD very this often does my head in :/
'Player Epidemic' is well put. :)
The problem's not the game itself but the 90% of stratless BC2 players who call themselves Veterans is what destroyed BF3.
If you're not in a clan, BF3 is bordering on unplayable.
Here's the dilemma:
People go into a game expecting that they will be able to gun down everyone they see, rambo style, and teammates dont matter. They dont communicate, and they dont want anyone else taking their kill away by spotting the enemy they are shooting at.
What inevitably happens is that they cannot kill every enemy themselves, and they quickly become overpowered because they aren't utilizing teamwork.
In reality you can get more points for assisting in a kill than making the kill, it just wont help you rank up a weapon, which becomes less important over time.
This thread is good, it should've been placed somewhere else though, it's going to get locked and removed here.
Where shall I place this thread then?
Im not that good a shooter. I support my team whether it be ammo or med packs/revives or spotting. I spot every enemy i see. I also always turn my voip from squad to team so i can try to communicate w everyone, not just 2-4 people. Also i keep my mini map in my peripheral at all times. Doesnt keep me fro getting killed all the time but it gives me a chance.
Kills don't mean skills, "finally" words to live by.
