This is a copy of what I said on another thread, worth putting it here.
Basic PKM / M60 / MP7 / P90 / AEK / M16 / and so on ... had the same recoil and deviation than their Elite versions
Think about what we paid to get slightly more ammo and damages at the time ! 280BF Vs 790BF !!
Basic weapons now costs about 833BF.
+3 damages and +4 ammo per mag is what we used to have by buying the Veteran AEK over the Basic AEK. (it was +5 ammo, but since the overall ammo count is reduced, that's OK)
At that time, we had to paid more than twice (570BF) the Basic price to get these little advantages
, now resurected within "+3" weapons.
I paid 790BF for my Elite AEK-971, but now got +4 ammo per mag and +3 damages at all ranges than the new guy who buy it now at 833BF.
BattleFunds-exclusive weapons is quite another story as there was NO basic versions, with a price up to 980BF.
The changes that came to this game should have been made at the start, or by refunding the Battlefunds to people, taking back the weapons and starting up from scratch, yet we would have much less advantages ! (no more "+3")
The recoil basis changed on our weapons, we must accept this
(now waiting for the adjustment on Pistols and Shotguns) and do our best with what we got, which are still somehow good weapons ! (thank god we don't have to empty three mags at someone to kill him, like in Battlefield Heroes !!)
I like how the weapons handle now, less Laser-gun
, less point and click
, more "learn to master your weapon
Off course, it was all in the name of money profit
, as us paying players did not have any reason to rent anything (between Dec. 1st and Dec. 20th update)
We, "+3" players, have a real advantage over new players, as they'll never reach the same weapons. This, I don't like !!
Once again, by buying attachments, you DO NOT buy again your Elite weapon !!!
You just buy one more advantage over other players
, making your weapon better !!!
Default < Basic < Veteran < Elite (and BF only)
Default < Basic < "+3" < Basic+addons < "+3"+addons
Don't get me wrong, I'm mad at EAsy for this poor and stupid management !!
I'm still forced to play in LOW, when my computer runs Battlefield 3 on HIGH settings
There is a sh!tload of bugs that never get fixed !!
Still NO communication with the community !!
Some really terrible decisions regarding weapons : P90 is a joke, RPG is full of bugs and fascinating when shot in "Hipfire", terrible recoil on almost all weapons in "Hipfire" (we are not 5 years old soldiers), stupid boosters that take months to get fixed and so on ..............
