ID:	597282At approximately 6pm AEST on December 6th, that's Tuesday next week, Battlefield 3 will be updated with a 2GB client patch as well as a server update. The reason for such a hefty client patch is that it contains content required for BF3's Back to Karkand expansion. For a long list of specifics explaining what fixes and changes have been made, read on.

    • Fixed a problem with spawn timer now showing blue border on startup and lost spawn point
    • Fixed a problem where player who joined queuing on End of round got spawn screen stuck on screen, but unable to do anything with it untill next round loaded
    • Fixed a problem where camera would change to 3rd person on killcam when killcam was turned off in server settings
    • Fixed stat references on several dogtags
    • Fixed for surveillance ribbon not counting TUGS
    • Fixed a missing combat area lines on the minimap for Grand Bazaar conquest small
    • Moved a tank spawn in US base on Caspian Border so it would not be destroyed by a falling tree
    • Fixed a problem where placing C4 with the russians soldier was playing US faction VO
    • Fixed a problem where TV guided missiles could be shot into its own helicopter and destroy it
    • Fixed a problem when attempting to fire lock on weapons without a target
    • Tweaked the chat, it should now be a bit easier to read
    • Fixed several vehicles that did not properly shoot rockets and guns towards their predictive sights
    • Fixed the G17 Supressed Laser not working properly
    • Added alternate HUD colors to help colorblinds
    • Added a network interpolation setting. This allows users with good bandwidth reduce latency, but might increase some stuttering. The user can find what works best for his connection by tweaking the slider.
    • Increased the Spawn protection radius on TDM
    • Fixed a problem with smoke on land vehicles, Missiles should now miss more often
    • Fixed a problem where users could end up with IRNV scope in any vehicle

    • Fixed several crashes and increased general stability
    • Fixed a problem where the user was unable to revive two players that have the bodies one over the other
    • Fixed so you can assign an axis and use as a digital input. This makes it possible for the player (on pc) to assign one of the sticks on a gameped to be used for throttle/brake.
    • Fixed a problem with the Kill camera acting up when suiciding from parachute
    • Fixed air radar was showing to much. now lasertagged, heatsignature above threshold, enemy missiles and capture points are only visible on air radar
    • Fixed a problem where the game would enter a technical hang if the user pressed pause menu and tilde at the same time
    • Fixed a problem where you could get green flashes on screen
    • You can now reassign cycle weapons
    • Fixed so the weapon zooms automatically after bipod deploy is gone when using zoom toggle
    • Fixed a problem where the parachute would stay stuck in air if the owner was killed

    Balance Tweaks

    Min player requirements
    "Also, it will once again be possible to reduce the number of players required to start a round to 1 both in ranked and unranked mode. We changed it back after getting a lot of negative feedback from both individuals and the RSP companies.

    "Our plan for the future is to introduce a warm-up mode, where players can move about and play the game, but with scoring disabled; then, when the number of players goes above the threshold -- that's when the real round starts."

    I've been shooting some face in the CS:GO beta for the first time this evening, and there's quite a bit to talk about.
