Hour and a half later the update finally finishes its download...
Oooh Battlefield premium makes everything look all snazzy!
There's also a neat new calendar which shows all the coming content drops and XP weekend stuff...30 quid for all this isn't too bad thinking about it.
It'll have to wait til payday I think. My Xbox live sub needs renewing too.
Aha premium also means you get priority in terms of joining a busy server.
Was reluctant on the premium thing, but it will be in the bag by tomorrow. Makes no sense to grumble at £30 given the amount of time I put into the game.
Post upgrade I have notified bugs. Anyone else?
Not seen any myself. Yeah was a little skeptical of premium too until I realised it's basically a big pre-order package...and it's not likely I won't be playing B3 in a years time.
When does new DLC come out? Im trying to hold off until ive got a bit more money.
I was going to get it yesterday but having read the problems the PS3 players are going through trying to play the news maps I'll give it a while.
I think the Xbox maps come out two weeks after the PS3.
What problems are they having?
Getting kicked from severs when they try and play the news maps.
Fifty four page thread here :
Premium has proper split the community, well all the fuckwits in the BF3 forums. There's servers banning premium players, fucking nuts. Just when you think the gaming scene couldn't get any worse with a load of kids as the majority, they go and behave like the kids in Lord of the Flies
I couldn't give a shit if someone has Premium or not but it seems to matter an awful lot to some people. Odd.
£30 (I had a 25% discount code) and for a pile of DLCs, a knife that looks like it efll out of some carpet fitters dungarees, couple new camos, racist dog tags, and some camo for crappy guns!
Oh and it looks like double XP at least once a month.
Kinda baffled why they'd put queue priority in, seems a bit shitty if you've been waiting for five minutes and some horrible bugger like Kid E gives you the fingers and jumps in first
Nah, am happy with it but the queue thing does seem ill thought out. A trolol by DICE.
Well they certainly know how to milk an audience.
Not earned its money as of yet, but the close quarters expansion could be awesome.
Are you on about the exclusive US/Canada only material?
Heh, you know the other downside about rented servers (while we're on the topic of B3 changes) is I never seem to find a game with less than 600 tickets! It's fucking annoying, a good gaming night could see 7-9 games now I'm lucky it it's 2.
Haven't seen that many premium players yet nor had any issue getting on to any server due to bannings...
They do although they're not quite CoD levels just yet...
I agree. It used to be that you could jump on one of the EA servers and have a quick couple of rounds before bed. These days, every game is an hour long session.
Well finally got round to finding space for my desktop in my new place, went on to see if rural "broadband" is going to be fast enough to let me play and I need to download the huge update first.
See there are some new game modes and an expansion pack to buy then
There should be an icon displaying if a server has custom rules. So, I think, if any thing has been changed from the default settings then it will show.
Yep. Close Quarters. You can buy it on it's own or you can buy the "premium" package which gives you all of the upcoming DLC early and works out cheaper. Plus they are appealing to the CoD crowd with custom camos and gun camos.
Amoured Kill gameplay.
Ah right haven't noticed anything like that tbh, will keep an eye out for it though...
Anyone getting Close Quarters tomorrow?
I bought Premium a couple of days back so I'll report back tomorrow at some point.
Yup, got premium too so assume CQ will just unlock...
It's out tomorrow?!?
Think it's out for premium players, two week early access iirc.
June 12th for Xbox and PC with the Premium package. I think it's two weeks later if you don't have Premium.
Just played on our server, was packed out! Not sure if it was luck but found the random players a lot more team player orientated...
Generally, Hardcore servers attract a better kind of player. I hate to admit it as it sounds elitist, but it's defo something I've noticed.
