official Battlefield 3

This is nothing more than EA getting people to buy the game again, after already paying for it once. Worse, this is pretty much a "God Mode" and if you don't have this, the game is useless to you now, because it puts you at such a disadvantage. :crazy:

How? It doesn't make you take less damage or do more damage. It's just more gun variety and map variety. And you can get the same guns and maps by not buying the Premium (minus exclusive skins). As I said before the only reason a person should have issues with "premium" is for the server queue priority. But apparently server owners can turn that off so it's not a huge issue.

Also you can unlock the guns at rank 1 if you do the assignments so you don't even need to be a high rank to use them.

So, does premium give you all of the DLC? as in Karkand, CQ, AK etc? Is it a one off payment or somewhere it said yearly? If it is yearly, Does the first payment cover all the maps and you don't lose them? Would someone guess at a price for all the extra map packs if they were purchased separately?

One payment only. Add-ons should cost $15 individually.

How does it put you at a disadvantage exactly? If you suck at the game, you still suck even if you spend $49

New weapons, unlocks, etc, that you can't use will put you at a disadvantage. I'm already at a loss when it comes to players with the FAMAS, and adding in more guns that I'll never have puts me further behind.

Needless to say I'm done with Battlefield. I paid $60 up front for a broken game, and I'm not paying again.

No they don't. New weapons are a side grade and you specifically mention the famas which is an absolutely terrible gun. It has some of the worst bullet spread and recoil in the game, not to mention it's iron sights, which again are the worst in the game.

There is no weapon that is outright better than any other weapon in the game. The M16a3 is proof of that. It's the first US weapon you get and it's probably one of the best assault rifles in the game, too. I haven't used the Close Quarters weapons yet but I'm fairly certain that still holds true.

To his defence the famas was OP when it first game out. Shot lasers. Although they quickly fixed it.

The famas was decent, but oh man, it had the worst iron sights in the history of BF. I couldn't hit anything with that pile, haha.

I haven't played Battlefield in a while and a couple of minutes ago I got an email from them asking me to play again.

I won't be going premium.

I already own B2K so that's kinda ruined half the good thing about buying it and i'm not sure if i'll be buying any of the other expansion packs yet.

It's great for those that are heavily into gaming though, the sort who know they'll buy everything anyway!

Apologies if posted just wanted to get this up there quick; I'm a Xbox user and haven't checked but wanted to help out anyone (especially on PS3 - confirmed):

Basically, dont buy DLC via PSN, do it via BF3 in-game menus.

It was a bit OP in close quarters. When it came to mid-longer ranges, M16 pooped on it. Now it's pretty bad at everything, unless DICE changed something (don't remember the change log).

I haven't used it once I got the 1 star on it. For rifles now I find myself using the L85A2 which in my mind still needs a nerf. But I'm almost always camping these days having sniper fights with my friends on the other team.

Max Payne 3 did the same exact thing with its Rockstar Pass. Why on earth they would even allow it on the store is beyond me. Incredibly messed up as you know some people will make the mistake.

I went ahead and got premium yesterday, even though i already paid $15 for b2k, i think i still save a few bucks in the long run. hopefully they'll give us who already bought b2k a refund for it, but i doubt it.

mostly to show my support to the game. It's well wroth the $100+ i've spent on it so far. even with its bugs :p

So CQ will start in june12 for premium on PC? i hope its nothing like COD games. Metro is does kinda have the MW feel, but much better, still not my fav map. hopefully the destruction in CQ will make it very fun.

i've been tryin to unlock some of the new weapons, but havent been playin too well lately :( i go through bad months and good months lol

hopefully they wont keep jacking up the new weapons with each future patch (adding bs recoil, taking it away, etc)

You should hope the other DLC is up to standard too. I'm not to comfortable in giving EA money up front for something we haven't seen.

I'm not comfortable with any sort of season pass after Gears of War 3. Epic's pretty much abandoned the game and don't listen to any fan complaints. Said this in another topic, but it's almost as if they said, "Aright, here's what we're going to do for DLC. And that's it."

I won't be making that mistake again. I'll be buying these packs one at a time, once I know they're worth it.

I recently pre-ordered CQ but then I cancelled it, looks far too much like cod and not enough like battlefield. I hope the rest of the dlc looks better, the armored kill screens look interesting, but i'm not sure I believe the whole "biggest map ever" claim.

Why not? It looks like it's pretty damn big. It has 7 conquest points.

Also there is an flyable AC 130

To get the AC-130, your team must first capture a base, at which point it will spawn and start taking its own route around the map. There are two gunner seats equipped with a 25mm autocannon and ?a big cannon.? The gunship will also act as a roaming spawn point, so the remaining members of your squad can choose to para-drop from the gunship on respawn.

The AC-130 gunship is by no means invincible. Fegraeus says that ?if your team has the AC130 it?s really, really important for your pilots to protect it because it is vulnerable, it?s a big target, it?s not nimble in any way, it?s just flying on its path.?
