Caspian Border Antenna Collapsing CONFIRMED

DICE patched it in. Seems to be a scripted event. Didn't see it in person yet, though I was present for it once, just engaged at Gas Station. BF3 is getting more awesome by the patch.

Man, thats way too late. Still, it's better than no collapsing antenna, I still can't believe they got rid of the ladders on that thing.

I witnessed this last night in conquest and it also occurred at almost the end of the round. I asked if they did something or if just happens at the end of the round. They said they blew it up, but I don't know where or how you need damage specifically if that is actually the case. If you can do it at any time it looks like it might severly impede vehicle traffic across the middle of the map.

And yes someone was complaing it killed them...

edit: OK now I see AlexW00d's post.

@Jasta: Yeah, I presumed that was a bug the first time I noticed it was gone. The whole tower seems so pointless when it's not there, and it looks so weird inside without it.

I heard people saying it was to stop snipers camping on the platform, but its just as easy to jump from a helicopter and land on it, and you can't shoot between the railings from the ground.

Experienced that today. Managed to fly a jet into the still standing collision model while the thing was falling.

I can't wait to just be up there when the ticket count hits 20 so I can experience it at its full potential
