    “Decreased the rate at which the kill card would incorrectly display 0 health”
    Can’t imagine how hard it is to fix this…

    not that hard, health is a float so they just round 0.99 up instead of down
    i can not imagine they actually fixed the display of missing or outdated data

    @wrklnt It’s not that. The other night was playing against a friend and the “0″ appeared. His health was sitting at around 50 on his HUD.

    so you only read or understood my first line

    people are complaining about the severe lack of sync since the launch of bf3, either the game has issues rendering updated positions, actions and health values of players and objects or does not get half of them from the gameservers in the first place
    do not expect this to go away with one patch, dice has shown they either not willing or not able to change this for reasons that will never be truly known
