Yeah CoD is terrible in comparison. That and no dedicated servers is just bad.

It's hard to get people to drop the CoD-crack though and move to BF.
[/quote]Just play both...I do. CoD isn't bad, it's just different. But I will agree that the fact that they have no dedicated servers is absolutely terrible. I can't go a match without a host migration.

I guess to me, CoD is just stale and inferior in a lot of ways.

With the money they make, there is no excuse for not having dedicated servers other than greed. If BF3 can do it, they can. BF3 has way more going on. Besides, if they do what BF3 did, and let players rent servers, eventually they won't even be paying for most of the servers out there. I know on BF3, Xbox, most of the servers are player owned servers.

It looks great. It also looks a lot like a CoD game. Graphically superior, yes. But this "realism" you guys claim to tout it has doesn't seem to be overly present in this demonstration.


"GUY! LEAN OUT THAT WINDOW WHILE YOU'RE DRIVING AND ONE HIT KO THAT GUNSHIP WITH YOUR GRENADE LAUNCHER!"

Could easily be replaced with

"RAMIREZ! LEAN OUT THAT WINDOW WHILE YOU'RE DRIVING AND ONE HIT KO THAT GUNSHIP WITH YOUR GRENADE LAUNCHER!"

Once again, it looks amazing. But it also looks more and more like people who tout Battlefield as some beacon of realism and grittiness are nothing but entertainment hipsters who get their Internet jollies by letting everyone know how not main stream they are (by playing a wildly popular A-list title)

Isn't this the same exact thing extremist CoD supporters do? FWIW I've played both for years (own every CoD except for MW3), and I can't even play CoD after Battlefield 3. There's no comparison. The scale of the game, the vehicles, the gun play, everything is better on BF3. That's not to say CoD isn't good for what it is, because it is. But if you want a shooter that takes teamwork, patience, and strategy to be successful at then Battlefield 3 is A LOT closer to accomplishing that then CoD....

It's the only thing that's fun when you're sniping on a map like Caspian Border....
