D2's graphics were gritty; Torchlight's were crisp. D3's graphics are crisp. Thats my one complaint about recent blizzard games, Blizz's older games looked gritty (maybe that was just because of the graphical capability back then but the end result is all that matters). I don't like the new "c...

Re: Battlefield 3

Why would the IRNV scope need a nerf? It is only 1x, takes longer to aim, and the IRNV portion only reaches so far(you can't stand in mid and spot the whole map) and trees still obscure it. What's the problem? Now, a 8x version of the IRNV scope for sniping, that would be a problem. It hardly takes...

Re: Battlefield 3

I want the ability to create squads (name your own and such) and signal objectives on the minimap as squad leader like in BF2.

I see why you can't have more than 4 people in a squad thou, imagine if you could have any number, then you could spawn on anyone on your team which is a bad idea.
