so now you're complaining that there's team work?
ECM+ a good gunner (achieved with VOIP) can over come those difficulties with a bit of fancy flying and gunning

I hope they improve the spawn map/menu. Seriously, I can't tell which is which most of the time with the squares and circles blinking; it's too confusing. They should at least label the capture points ON THE MAP or have a different indicator of the selected spawn point. I usually spawn on my squad mates but that is confusing too even now. And I'm 130 hours into the game at lvl 53. rolleyes.gif

BC2 allowed you to just click the spawn point you wanted to go to on the map.
Baffled by why you can't, anymore.

Guys please watch your language in this thread. Remember the swear filter is a trigger that a breach has occurred...

I'm really happy with the map pack, although I'm not as excited as some people I know were, seeing as I've never played a round of BF2 in my life.

So far, I really like the layout of the maps in TDM, Rush, and even in Conquest (which, yes, is my least favorite mode due to the shear size of most maps). redface.gif

All-in-all, I'm glad I pre-ordered it and got the map pack for free, but had I not, I wouldn't mind giving EA $15 (better than $60 for all those COD map packs tongue.gif)

My thoughts:
Strike at Karkand is great; they stayed basically true to the original, and the destruction really makes a difference. Fantastic infantry map, still.
Gulf of Oman let me down... the lighting and atmosphere is very harsh and unnerving, I like the original's better. They also made it really claustrophobic; bases are bunched up and the flight ceiling is incredibly low (I think I was losing airspeed and control around 550!) and flying far is discouraged. Running it on High with 2xAA, I have a hella hard time distinguishing the mess of buildings when flying. The original was way better than this.
Wake Island is nearly perfect. Lots of space, well-placed bases. Really gets hectic with 64-players. My favorite from BF2. My only complaint is the lighting; they went with a dusk look to it, but I really liked the afternoon sun from the original.
Haven't played Sharqi yet tongue.gif

Though I have to say everything is much more ridiculous with the added tech in BF3. Strike became incredibly difficult with high-zoom scopes, SOFLAMs, Javelins, etc., and aircraft are just ridiculous.

Got to play Karkand yesterday and the map is still awesome. Pure chaos just like I remembered
