You all might not like the game but the COD group sure does. I play both depending on what I wanna do that night . Sometimes I want that quick pace of COD and sometimes I want that Bf style game play. I know I am weird to actually admit it but I do play and appreciate both games.
My son on the other hand and his buddies all strickly play COD and they have a true love affair with BF3. I know the world is coming to an end because the COD players are taking over "our" game but I actually like it. The more the merrier I say . The more players that play this game the more DIce and EA will promote and offer DLC at later dates. If they wanna play COD style good cause you can't play this game sitting 1/2 mile away in a corner and be effective. This is a new game and the more I play the more I am totally pumped about it . MOst if not all the ole school players on my FL that started with their negative first impressions have bascially all said....Wow once you give the game a chance its actually very in depth and fun to play. Gameplay is pretty balanced along with the guns. If you think you are going to spawn and rack up kills with your shiney new M16 from 200 yards away you are kidding your self.
Put in the time on the game and give the game and the new players a chance and we will all benefit by one of the best FPS ever made. This seems to be the mindset.......1st hour of gameplay is terrible. The 2nd hour is playable and by the 3rd hour you can't put it down. Yes I know it has issues that have been beaten to death and already fixed but lets come together as one solid goup and experience the new BF3 together................................................Wipes tear.
