Ok am I just retarded and I can't find out how to use the commo rose thing for calling in the airstrikes and spotting enemies? I have tried every button and looked in the keybindings and see nothing. I feel dumb.
Metro needs a good airstrike to break up a solid defence on the first stage.
To spot someone, you hit Q whilst your crosshairs are over them. Its much more precise than BC2 you have to have the target right in your crosshair.
Caspian Border is indeed an epic good time. Flew a jet for a bit, but with keyboard only controls I managed to get shot down pretty quickly. I'm totally confused how you select weapons or use abilities in vehicles, sense none of the vehicle commands seem to do :anything:
i was standing right up against a wall in the metro station when someone rocketed it and didnt die
this is probably a good thing cos the nade/rocket spam in bc2 was rampant
also fwiw the only time i've had the game crash on me my progress/unlocks were saved (yay defib) vOv
So open beta still isn't open?
Got about 45min or so on a low-ping server last night
The erection lasted for hours
Managing to run everything on ultra/high but turned motion blur off completely. It's a GTX570 SOC that's OC'd a bit more and framerates are silky smooth. Haven't tried increasing the post-AA to max yet, to see what that does but waiting for a 64 map first.
Latency was great yesterday GMT from 6pm-10pm, then it seemed to plummet pretty fast and latency would spike across all servers it seems at random intervals. Assuming it's the majority of the US coming online after work/school?! If that's the case I fear for latency when public beta hits.
That being said, the game is fantastic visually and gameplay wise (with friends anyway :P). Knifing animation is v. nice but it's also slow (you pull someone around, hold them and stab them in the heart, aka the proper way you knife someone) so there won't be lots of lunging 3 people. The noise in the game is great, gunshots are muffled when out of sight, sound coming from all directions when outside making it harder to hear someone sneak up. When inside though, you can hear people coming if they run around and when crouching once they get closer.
Not sure if it's because icons for spots are a lot smaller (and so is the minimap) but if you can get behind enemy lines and are any good you can work up an amazing kill spree. Team work is far more essential in covering all the angles, as you die FAST. So if everyone is looking to the front for the obvious dudes coming to shoot you, some fuck might come up behind you and exterminate everyone in 5 seconds.
Class wise it's been pretty much mostly assault (the new medic) which gathers ridiculous amounts of XP once you get the paddles unlocked. There seems to be a general player lever and individual class level. The amount of unlocks is sweet! Shotties can headshot people at 50m right now, so it's pretty rape. Starting weapons are pretty bad compared to what you can unlock pretty fast. Still seeing lvl30 people play with no mods though :/ Sniper seems to be more viable as a non-lame class to play, the spawn beacons they can place are very effective if it's not a dumb fuck using it.
Need more maps now, and less browser gay.
What time does this thing go live then? I'm fucking hyped.

I asked for some advice in a department store about a gift for someone special.
The sales assistant said "we have a beautiful selection of gold necklaces and diamond rings just in".
I replied "no thanks, the fucking spastic will just eat those, got any Spiderman bibs?"
Mother of god.
AFAIK it is open for everyone in NA as of 10 minutes ago
