Battlefield 3 Patch Incoming, Cheaters Get Their Gooses Cooked
As with the majority of modern games, Battlefield 3 will be receiving a patch to fix some of the glaring, if not relatively minor issues with the multiplayer suite.
This patch will arrive first on PC sometime next week through Origin, with consoles following soon after, due to certification constraints from Microsoft and Sony.
First of all, servers are being updated to increase performance and maintain stability, an issue that’s become more and more apparent on 64 player conquest servers.
For all of you experiencing issues with “negative mouse acceleration”, have no fear. Dice claims to have that bug squashed and is ready for your mouse to…positively accelerate I guess?
Also, you may have heard that EA was on a banning spree, knocking player after player off the charts. In addition to banning the players who cheat or boost for XP, those same hooligans will have their stats completely reset, given that they get back to playing Battlefield 3 after their timeout in the corner.
Hopefully they’ll think about what they’ve done in that time.
If you suspect someone is playing unfairly or using an exploit, Dice encourages players to report these players in one of two ways:
- Find their profile on Battlelog and report them by clicking the warning symbol beside their name.
- Head over to the EA help desk and directly report the issue.
Additionally, they note that weapon balancing, squad control functionality and user interfaces have been improved and enhanced. Community feedback has also been addressed, with some suggestions implemented into next week’s patch.
A detailed list of patch notes will available alongside the fix next week, so keep it locked to Inside Gaming for the entire scoop.
