Thanks to http://www.battlelog.co/ client ye can actually make an account ingame ! It's their own account server
So all of a sudden my shadows are flickering holes everywhere. I even went to the xpack on a night map and saw my gear whited out most the time !!
I also noticed in console the text went all scribbly and messy .. maybe I should disable the 2x filtering or somethin ..?
From what I remember some time back I kept attempting to disable shadows yet the problem remains
