- Vertical gameplay means death can come from any angle
- HD destruction lets you reduce entire locales to ruin
- Earn new weapons and bring them back to the base game
- Complete new Assignments and equip unique dog tags

Why does my BF3 want to download 2gb? It better not be pre-installing this COD expansion pack!

I bought the Premium pack for $50 purely because it includes the remained of DLC when its released.

yeah premium is better value than buying each of the dlcs separately.

working fine for me, and it seems to be a strange glitch to get through testing.

In BF3 is ramming generally frowned upon? Because this is me 90% of the time on some nights (I'm such a prick).

People get pretty s*****, but I don't see what's wrong with the strategy ...

TiT not sure mate, I don't see why it wouldn't?

Pretty happy with the new maps. They're alot bigger than I anticipated. New game modes are fun too. Gun Sentarty will burn out quickly though but it'll still have its place.

was playing a bit of this, this morning. It's pretty good as I was getting sick of the huge standard maps and metro is just stupid and I can barely ever find people playing grand bazaar which I thought was odd.

I guess I will get Permeium, saves me having to worry about buying individually when the others are released.

I log off whenever I'm on a 64 player server that changes to Metro.

up in the air about the premium. don't like the idea you pay $15-20 for a couple of maps DLC but at the same, i'm sure i dropped about $40-50 on BF2 expansions.
BladeRunner
Posted 04:54pm 13/6/12
So no one else is having issues with buying the premeium thing? Why does EA not want my money...
BladeRunner
Posted 05:44pm 13/6/12
F*** it I will just wait til it is released normally and buy it individually, I am not paying for B2K again anyway.

I had issues buying it for a friend. Paypal wouldn't allow me to change my card I drew from and it was weird when I used the CC option. Lame

CQ on PC is held back by the crappy netcode.

Lots of shooting people and not having hits register. Lots of being shot around corners, behind cover due to the client side hit detection.

It really could have been amazing. These flaws are there but less of an issue in standard maps. CQ's it's game breaking.

Which is odd why PC games are going backwards. COD used to be fine. Fast, responsive. Then they added match making and get these problems. BF3 then makes their servers have this problem with client side hit detection.

Haha, every time I'm winning the gunmaster mode I get a random disconnect.

One of these cannot be true.

One of these cannot be true.

You see you'd think that... but BF3 (and BF:BC2) suffer from retarded hitreg/lag bs all the time.

I have currently refused to pay more for the 'expansion' than I did for the base game, and what's worse is that those who have 'paid twice' now get to queue into servers in front of me...

(what kills me the most is that the group of mates I usually play this will all jumped in, both feet, willingly and only now seem to be scratching their heads after yet another buggy release of new maps...)
