Just tried to get a quick multiplayer BF3 game started. Logged into Origin, launched BF3, of course Battlelog opened on the browser, attempted to sign in and was greeted with the msg saying that theres a maintenance until 12 pacific. /runon

Ok no problems I understand its probably, hopefully, related to the latest patch.

Anyway, im trying to at least play some campaign but i cant do anything outside of battlelog.

Is there anything I can do or am I seriously just stuck until Battlelog is back on to play some OFFLINE campaign?

Put origin in offline mode and hit play. It's under the gear icon if for some reason you can't locate it
Know the rules well, so you can break them effectively.

Well, FWIW, the game just triggered to download the update for me...So it might let you go through with that and then allow you to play. >_>


Although, last I tried, I could play the campaign WITHOUT Battlelog and using the browser. Manually launching the game's .exe launched it into the campaign, rather than Multiplayer/Battlelog.

Patch is about 2GB, either way...

Yeah. >_>

Tired of getting screwed over by a Dart at mid range. Kind of anxious to try it out with the various other balances/tweaks they're doing...Especially to things like Suppression.

The pump action shotgun is getting (a well deserved) buff. The Auto shotguns are getting nerfed slightly.

Yeah, fortunately my connection downloaded it about a half hour or so...Still reasonably large considering it's a lot of tweaks, and presumably the DLC (Which I won't be buying...).


As for shotty tweaks/buffs, I'm mixed; They're already pretty damn potent at close range, and tweaking Suppression will help as it is (Suppression shouldn't make 3 point-blank shots with a shotty survivable. >_>); But it also means they'll be more useful to me just the same..so yeah.

From the looks of it, the M1014 is getting a slight buff over the other auto shotties (1 extra projectile over current standard), while the other shotguns are getting pellet reductions; According to the patch notes reduced a few days ago anyway. Seems good to me, since I actually like and do fairly well with the M1014.

Except for all the inevitable new glitches and accidents related to weapon and vehicle balance that have accompanied every patch this game has had.
