    Something weird happened yesterday.

    I was using my MAV on Sienne (or however you spell it), and I was trying to kill people.
    Well, I found one guy just standing there so I swoop in for the kill.

    The catch is that the killfeed actually said "MAV" and my MAV didn't get destroyed after. I then ran over another person and simply got "KILLED" & it destroyed my flying death machine.
    I love it when I get multi MAV kills. Only do it when my team is dominating or when I take a chill break and play TDM.

    Makes people so mad when I jam their claymores as soon as they throw them down and end up killing themselves.

    I kind of wish they ported some of the BC2 maps into BF3. Maybe it's just the nostalgia, but the BC2 maps were a lot better designed than BF3's. Besides, I'd love to fly a jet over Heavy Metal any day, or go through the fields of Harvest Day in a tank.
    I think the reason why BC2 maps seem better designed is because they were built primarily focused on rush. Because of that, the devs could take a lot of time to fine tune each one. Its also why conquest in BC2 wasn't all too great. In BF2, the focus was on conquest, so all DICE had to do was focus on the conquest game mode. On BF3 though, DICE has had to balance for each map for at least five game modes (conquest, rush, team deathmatch, squad deathmatch, squad rush), so the maps, while ok for each mode, don't feel great.

    I'm still in on the server renting, we should get one with the maximum amount of people CQ can hold (16 or 24 I don't fucking know) and have it passworded for a week (or just maybe just a day or two) after CQ is out for FP players only. then open it when FP people stops joining it regularly.
    sdaaSFGAS I'm already paying for a 24 slot server.
    IT'S IN THE GOD DAMN OP, renewal is next week. If its going to be used I'll renew it.

    That's been a regular part of the game since that patch that "killed" MAV roadkills was implemented. I've gone entire rounds still running people over with it and not losing it.

    I've found that if you hit the ground while hitting the person the mav lives and kills the person.

    Is there any reason to get Battlefield Premium now if I don't really have any desire to own Close Quarters? The other three DLC's interest me so I'll probably just pick it up when the next one comes out. Unless there is some advantage for getting it now.

    You can always buy Premium get the goodies that comes with it plus all DLC's. OR, you can just spend U$45 in each of the last 3 with no extra goodies and one day you might go "I'd like to play Close Quarters now to see how it goes...".

    By having Premium you're not forced to play Close Quarters, it is YOUR choice you know...

    Yes thank you I realize that and that's what I said. But that isn't what I asked.

    I wanted to know if there was any incentive (besides early Close Quarts obv) to get Premium now as opposed to just waiting for the next DLC to come out.

    Sorry then for not getting that quite right, anyway the extra goodies might be the incentive they throw at us but if you don't care about them well then there's no reason to get it right now I guess.

    I'm looking at premium as a binary choice right now. I don't see any real reason to get it with only CQ released and little info about Armored Kill. I figure if the other ex-packs are REALLY worth it, then I'll just buy premium then. So far CQ doesn't look like anything I want, so that's strike one.

    I'm in the same situation in virtually all of this, but CQ does look like something I'd want.. juuuust not a ~$50 something.

    It's two gamemodes we have seen before, 10 reskinned models, and a few CoD maps. Definite pass for me.

    I don't understand peoples bias towards the CQC DLC.
    Why are you comparing it to COD?
    Just because its closer quarters than most BF maps doesn't make it COD esque.
    It adds new guns which is always a plus and it adds some maps which will actually work for TDM and other infantry only game modes, hardly any of the B2K or vanilla maps work for infantry only game types with the exception of metro and that maps bottle necked to shit.
    I like the gun on gun aspect of this game much more than the tank vs soldier or soldier vs some guy sitting in a window 200m away.

    Having some maps specifically tailored towards gun on gun combat sounds like a lot of fun.

    Why are you saying there's bias and shit like that when it's an opinion based thing, they can think whatever they want, some people hate CQ stuff, some love it. Personally the 12th can't come fast enough for me, but if other's aren't going to get it, good for them, I don't care.

    They probably compared it to CoD because, oh I dunno, maybe CoD is the most well-known FPS game for close quarters action? Just a stab in the dark.

    Can't wait to use my MP7 with red dot, laser sight and extended mag on the CQ maps. The combo tears any enemy apart at close range in about half a second.

    I've got 753 kills with the MP7, double of what I usually have with a weapon. I usually equip it with Recon since I can lay down motion scanners and radio beacons while flanking the enemy from the rear. Works especially well in Metro, if you replace the laser sight with the silencer.

    Also the F2000 isn't that bad, just put the single shot firing mode on with the heavy barrel and foregrip. It mitigates the recoil and you can control your fire pretty easily.

    Tuesday should come faster, I can't wait.

    putting the F2000 in semi-auto firing mode is like sniping with a shotgun, it completely defeats the point of the gun

    They aren't playing, they're just stuck in the loading screen but they can still get that sniper since they technically win a round. To get in the black loading screen you gotta add some folders to your BF3 folder to make the game think you have CQ installed but it'll load infinitely since you don't actually have the files.

    depends on the range

    I do feel sorry for the endless hordes of rifle/lmg-wielding enemies that I have put down with the PP-2000 and MP7, they never expect to be outgunned from range by piddly little smgs

    So today I decided to go for the L96 kills, since I absolutely hate playing recon/long range sniping.

    Best. Round. Ever.

    It was just my opinion broski, take a chillaxitive. I'm not huge on the close quarters stuff in this game (for a variety of reasons that will probably get me yelled at more) so was just saying I'm not interested and that I will probably pick up the other DLC's.
