Thoughts on the Battlefield 3 Multiplayer Patch

Hi folks,

after spending several hours playing Battlefield 3 (Xbox 360) with the new Multiplayer Patch I'm kind of dissapointed. I used to play with the FAMAS, which has been seriously weakened. Ammunition was decreased from 31 to 25 and the firing rate was increased (!!) to 1000. This leads to very heavy vertical recoil which makes the weapon much more imprecise. I managed to make it to 2000 kills with the FAMAS before the patch and now I genuinly can't use it anymore. Also some serious issues have not been adressed: Spawn points are worse than before, sometimes spawning 2 to 3 enemys right in front of me just so I can kill them (sorry for that). Also the awkward melee kill animation did not get fixed. Sometimes meleeing an enemy directly in front of you seems an impossible task while melee kills from almost 2 meters distance are no problem at all. Oh yeah and of course USAS-12 still seems to be as strong as ever. I HATE getting shot with that weapon.

What are your experiences with the patch so far?
