If other people aren't bothered by the failure to include female avatars in this game, that's fine with me, but I am bothered by it, to the point where I simply won't bother playing the game. 

I am convinced there is only one way to eliminate these grave evils, namely through the establishment of a socialist economy, accompanied by an educational system which would be oriented toward social goals.

You get female avatars and all the guy avatars will be all, "We have to protect this female avatar,"  and then they'll lose the map, who wants that?

Very buggy, but incredibly fun and very innovative in several ways. If they can clear out the bugs then it will GotY material.

They've got their work cut out for them, though.  There's a lot of bugs still and even though you can say it's just a beta, it's also less than a month away from release.

 

Bear in mind that the build we're playing just now is from way back at E3, pretty much all the bugs you're seeing have already been fixed for the release client.

I'm with you on the choice of map though, i really just don't get it. The only reason i can think of them choosing METRO for the taster is to try and grab some of the COD customers.

Well it worked... as someone who has played COD since the second one i never tryed BF, but i saw this on my xbox live new feed thing, though id give it a try and well i can only say positive things about this game. I def plan on buying it.

main thing i hated about BF2 was the auto snipers people would just unscope 1 hit everyone was quite annoying plus the TKing over planes and tanks was a tad excessive

BF2/BF2142/BFVietnam is a revamp of BF1942, so will BF3.

not really, nam was  revamp of 42. but bf2 had alot more improvements over 42's system. 

i just want a game that actually adds stuff to it, not just a texture cover thats what i have noticed from games like CoD that have many versions they tend to just take the base and add some fancy graphical sparkle... 2042 did that on the old bf 2 eng.. really didnt add anything new i mean the walkers were ok but not impressive and the titans were a joke.. the maps were the same size from what i could tell to 1942... 

so unless bf3 thinks outside the box :/ ....

BF2 is a revamp of Desert Combat http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desert_Combat mod which wasn't even EA.

You won't get any new real changes to speak of untill an indie mod is made, and made better then the original.

EA is notorious for cashing in on what works and not looking out side the box.

I'm loving it. It's a huge improvement from both Battlefield 2 and Bad Company 2. While on the topic, I'm looking for members for my Battlefield 3 Platoon! If anyones interested, simply apply at the following link:

Playing it for a few days and must say its pretty nice , tho it feels more like bad company than bf2 for me. Also hope they optimize their engine more since my gtx 580 was only using 50 procent load so far but game wanted more . Think current beta also doesnt have all gfx options turned on since i am running ultra and it doesnt realy look better than bad company 2 ,game also needs alot of bug fixes like falling true the floor etc.

 

Not about this topic but does anybody else have problems with their gtx 580 and crashing on dx 10 and 11 ? . Did try everything so far but still crashes random on dx 10 games and its not a heat issue or whatever . Did read the first gtx 580 batches did have problems with their stock voltage even did put that up but no results , so if anybody else have this problem or know the fix please let me know.

I always find that guys that refuse to play female avatars "refuse" a little too hard if ya get my drift.

It's beta so not sure why there are so many people moaning about this game. Once it's out and not improved then you are able to make comments imo...Give the game a chance ffs.

Just sayin here, you stack up the best man vs the best woman at any activity, any sport, and pretty much everything else, the best man will win, that is why women are in a seperate division in every single sport/activity, because women will be beaten outright.

 

Ex,

best male boxer vs best female boxer

best male runner vs best female runner

best male weightlifter vs best female weightlifter

smartest male vs smartest female

best male artist vs best female artist

best male shooter vs best female shooter

best male pro gamer vs best female pro gamer

 

Also almost every single historic creation of anything was created by males (ex electricity, the telephone, the airplane, the computer, the operating system)

 

The outcome will always be the male, I'm obviously coming off as sexist here but I am actually not at all, this is just how the human anatomy is...

 

Well what about the best female X vs the average male X?  That's what a true comparison would be especially when you are talking about the military.  The armed forces are absolutely filled with average people and yet seem to still function.  If a woman can perform as well as your average infantry soldier then why not have them?  If every man was judged like this we'd have 1 soldier, 1 cop, 1 singer, 1 runner, 1 pro gamer, 1 boxer, 1 weightlifer, 1 carperner, etc in the world.  And yes that's absurd and doesn't happen in reality, however that's what your list implies.

As to your point about who has created things over the years .. well uhh, why might that be?  How many women were allowed to have any of the jobs leading up to the creation of any of these things during the time periods.  Every one of the examples you listed was pre 1960 if not earlier.

 

 

"Well what about the best female X vs the average male X?  That's what a true comparison would be especially when you are talking about the military.  The armed forces are absolutely filled with average people and yet seem to still function.  If a woman can perform as well as your average infantry soldier then why not have them?"

I never said the military should not allow women in. Truth is, males are physically better for the job than females. A woman would simply have a tougher time lugging around 40 pounds of equipment than an average male because their muscle structure is litterally weaker than a males.

"If every man was judged like this we'd have 1 soldier, 1 cop, 1 singer, 1 runner, 1 pro gamer, 1 boxer, 1 weightlifer, 1 carperner, etc in the world."

This just isn't true, because everyone wants to be the best at something, and everyone qualifies to be better at something else than the other. Ex, 2 male soldiers, one can be better with a sniper, the other could be better with assault rifles. The only way to defeat a male that is the best at something, is to 'fight fire with fire' and throw another male at him. Imagine mike tyson (in his prime) fighting the worlds best female boxer... Yea tyson would win. Now throw lenix louis at him and now you have a competition (male vs male).

"As to your point about who has created things over the years .. well uhh, why might that be?  How many women were allowed to have any of the jobs leading up to the creation of any of these things during the time periods.  Every one of the examples you listed was pre 1960 if not earlier."

At what point were these creations made because 'it was their job to'? The men discovering flight weren't getting paid to do it, they were simply trying to discover something reviloutionary. Why couldn't women do the same? They were of course discriminated against certain jobs and from voting at the time, but how could these limitations limit them from creating something revolutionary?

The boxing world is not made up of Mike Tyson's, it is filled with thousands of mediocre boxers and a few stars ... just like every other profession in this world including the military.  The army doesn't say, oh wait we can't return fire because we don't have our all stars here.

And yes, thanks for parsing the word "job" while missing the point.  Women were excluded from education and yes, occupations (musn't say jobs, oh no) that gave them the necessary experience to allow them to invent things such as flight.  Although there are always exceptions that prove the rule, though in this case those exceptions sort of deflate your point, ie Mdm. Curie.  Even a simple web search will reveal entire lists of female inventors/discoverers.

Even some of the old Rainbow Six games allowed one to play female avatars.

MMO's played: Ragnarok Online (For years), WoW (for a few weeks only), Guild Wars, Lineage 2, Eve, Allods, Shattered Galaxy, 9 Dragons, City of Heroes, City of Villains, Star Trek Online (Got someone ELSE to pay for it), Champions Online (Someone else paid), Dofus, Dragonica, LOTRO, DDO and more... A LOT more. I've played good AND bad. The bad didn't last long. :P

I'm guessing battlefield 3 is trying to make it as realistic as possible. There aren't any female special forces or infantry soldiers/marines, so I guess thats why. At least I never saw any with my 4yrs in the marines and 5yrs in the navy. The closest I think I've seen females get to combat are fighter pilots.

That may be true, but it is still a valid complaint for a female to have to play with a male avatar in a multiplayer game.  The developer doesn't HAVE to include a female avatar, but then maybe they shouldn't be surprised if most women don't want to play it.  No doubt shooters appeal less to women anyways, but they would appeal a little bit more if they could at least play a version of themselves in it.

I'm playing it on PC and to be painfully blunt, the PC players on the official forum and ingame are acting like spoiled children. Its embarrassing.

You won't get any new real changes to speak of untill an indie mod is made, and made better then the original.

EA is notorious for cashing in on what works and not looking out side the box.

I put things in this kind of perspective:  The main BF games, even though they haven't broken their own mold as you said, still offer a whole lot of options in gaming compared to the rest of the FPS genre.

Here's the guts of what they've traditionally offered:  Team-Focus play (not about the killstreak; objectives; squad based emphasis; getting points for not necessarily putting a bullet through someone), infantry and vehicles on the same game and maps to include even jets and helos, large maps with varied terrain features to enable different gameplay success, and of course traditionally up to 64 players / 32 vs 32.

Those things are what's become important to me in FPS gaming over the years.  Unless you can point me to another title or franchise that can provide that kind of varied experience presented in the way DICE can, then by all means, tell me, and I'd love to give it a whirl.

Until then, the FPS genre is for most parts dominated with very simple, very straight forward, and alot of heavily scripted play on tiny maps.  Many offer goodies in different parts here and there, but few, if any, present the whole package like DICE has over the years.

The only thing I can think of that puts tremendous options for an FPS gamer is the ARMA series, but that's in the very hardcore MILSIM crowd that requires tremendous practice (which I'm fine with and it's good to me, but I know it's not the majority's cup of tea in the FPS crowd).

Again, I understand where you're coming from, but look at the whole picture and what exactly it is everyone else is doing in the FPS genre.

"I have only two out of my company and 20 out of some other company. We need support, but it is almost suicide to try to get it here as we are swept by machine gun fire and a constant barrage is on us. I have no one on my left and only a few on my right. I will hold."

Easy fix, just make all the female avatars fat and ugly.  Because we know men only care about women if they're attractive.

Their voices would also have to sound like Oprah, to totally remove the sex appeal by audio.
