BurrahobbitI think i would like the patch but whenever i join a server i get terrible lag to the point where i cant move... i didnt have this before. :'(

me too, but it seems to go away after a fe min. Patch also disabled Punkbuster, and altered my video settings, player name and crosshair color. Who knows what else!

So far, I like it, have to play more. I was able to seat switch, and it is hard to regain control, but it is possible.

Yeah, the seat switching gives you about 1/2 a second to take your shot if you're one of those seat switchers. So you have to have that shot lined right up to be successful, otherwise you take a violent tumble towards the ground. You can recover, but that will give the other person time to evade you and be somewhere else. I also like the fact that they've changed the amount of misslies you can fire at a time. Instad of two in relatively quick succession, you can only fire one. On the jeeps, I love the fact you can drive through water now. No more touching a little puddle and blowing up.

Awesome changes. Why? Here's some of the crap I actually checked out.

- Went amphib with a jeep down a river and it didn't burst into flames at the mere thought of doing so. - Thought I was near an ammo crate but couldn't think of where it was... 3D map addition made it so I didn't have to search each tent. - Teams can now see where eng/sniper traps are... I can go back to being 'that guy'. - Loach artillery target spots are WAY better than sniper spots. - Flight ceiling added means no more Mi8 Transport spawn crap. - MUTT heatseekers. Also that they don't track air vehicles accurately. - Favorites list. Sweet.

And this from the patch feature list: -Increased destabilization of Cobra when no driver, making it harder to switch to the 2nd position to fire heatseekers.

It's true. When you're alone and you switch seats the cobra rolls over.

As for the new map, it looks cool. I hope EA makes a handful of new maps soon.

I think they are, though on OFD I still had no problem accidentally seeking a friendly target

Meh... you know what I actually DON'T like? How touchy the rest of the helicopters have become. Now I can't fly a UH1H to save my life! I'm flipping over like crazy, and it no longer hovers on its own.

Sucks that to balance out the Cobra they had to f' up all the rest.

While I'm on the Cobra balance issue - I don't care what anyone says, the Mi8 is worse than the Cobra ever was. At least the VC get an AA class - oh and the ZSU - on every map with US air.
