BF3 : Back to Karkand - What are your thoughts? - Page 5

post #41 of 149
For those of you that have played BF2 you can really see how similar the maps are and at the same time the difference is huge.

Wake Island, Strike at Karkand, Sharqui Peninsula made the CQ more accessible to me personally.
I felt CQ in the vanilla versions was a bore, points being too far out and jets basically owning everything.
Strangely Wake Island given the Jets still didn't feel one sided.
CQ assault is a very nice game mode, opens up some very nice flanking routes.
Haven't tried Gulf of Oman yet, will do so when Origin is back up.
And as for the DLC, I got a BC2'ish in the Sharqui Peninsula Rush, meaning the MCOM stations are close enough that you can defend both of them.
In other maps you just decide on one and dedicate all your abilities to guard that. And as for assignments, I'm actually seeing a rise in Revives and heals. Nice idea! thumb.gif

Can't log on origin, oh well.
post #46 of 149
I thought I'd try finishing of the SP campaign whilst this maintenance is being carried out but you can't even get onto that, nor any other games on Origin...

EDIT: Just a thought, but is there an offline mode at all? Probably is but you need to be logged into Origin to get at it.

Hmmm so some people are saying that the maps are shrunk while others say they aren't. Who to believe?
