Battlefield: Bad Company 2 was the best shooter I ever played. Battlefield 3 was a steaming pile of ****.

They are both terrible, casualbait FPS for people with awful taste.


How come I get better scores in Quake than in BF3?


Now if you simply took a moment to think about it with some logic and reasoning (I know its hard) you would arrive at your own answer :)


The only logical answer is Quake is easier than BF3.


And Quake doesn't give you equipment/skill perks and other advantages that award time played vs. skill like many modern shooters.


You're right, it just drops quad damage and teleporters all over the place. Done properly the unlocks you're talking about are nowhere near the same level of benefit as going on a quad damage rampage. Case in point, in Battlefield 3 if you think unlocking a new gun or scope is going to grant you magical noob slaying leetness oh boy are you in for a disappointment. The Vehicle unlocks are a different story, but I'll be the first to point out those aren't done properly.


Except the powerups respawn, and everyone has an equal chance of snagging them if they know the map (and you lose them upon death) - with perks/weapon upgrades etc. a person has a permanent (however slight) advantage over other players who may not have played the game for as long - personally I'd say the former system is far more balanced.

The main advantage is experience in the game, You're not losing to a guy with a slightly different red dot you're losing to hours upon hours of playtime

The same could absolutely be said for Quake and games like it - playing more gives you more experience with the quirks of the weapons and the layout of the various maps, except you also don't get additional stat/weapon boosts because of said playtime that give you even more of an advantage.

Except for the fact the "advantage" given is frequently in the user's head. The starter guns in BF3, naked, tend to be some of the "best" in the game for general use. The only real exception to that is the recon which starts out with perfectly capable (and more forgiving) semi-autos but doesn't have the bolt actions available for use till the first unlock. Beyond that all it is is slightly tweaking the guns to user preference with various tradeoffs.

That's again, not taking vehicles into account.
