Also, anybody notice how since the patch/update the environments are WAAAY more destructible than they used to be? For example, on the Caspian map, by the end of a particularly violent game, the huge antenna has fallen, ALL the buildings around the gas station and the Hilltop have been razed. It's getting to the point where I'm more comfortable later in the game with the destroyed environment, and I feel disoriented at the beginning of the game when all the buildings are intact.
The antenna is a scripted event which has nothing to do with things being destructable. I believe it triggers when one team gets down to 20 tickets. Hilarious seeing all the snipers on it go splat when it falls though.
Leveling buildings is one of the first things I do - can't have pesky AT infantry hiding in them waiting to kill my tank.

I would think that it was included in the last patch, and that all Dice had to do was 'unlock' it.

But i could be wrong.

The patch rolled out last week was supposed to include the Karkand DLC in preparation for this release.

I'll keep an eye out for it next time i play that map. First time i saw it out of the corner of my eye and I was in awe. I couldn't get to it's location before the game ended.

I was at Checkpoint last night when it fell, and the tip basically dropped a few feet in front of my tank.

Exactly where that AT was lying.

Pissed about a few deaths I got last night, especially the one when I was behind, not inside of, behind one of those metal shipping containers, an anti-infantry tank round was shot at my direction and I died. Those things essentially launch a grenade which can get through more steal then some of the walls that stop bullets (because they aren't destructible).

I like the game but its so quick to die in this game everytime i play I'm dead in a few minutes and my kdr is horrid which is strange because in most FPS games I usually have about a 1.5kdr....

Anyway its pissing me off and making me not play it as much as I would normally. Also I hate when people revive you in a gun fight and you just keep dying lol.

Only other thing kinda sucks is I got it for $30 from ORIGIN sale, and now I need to get Karkland for another 14.99 grr!
