Why complain when the patch will be out to balance and fix bugs and not to mention the winter map too. I'm sure you'd enjoy that. At least you can LVL hardcore in this map but i hope to god someone will host on their server and forbid RPG use and explosions lmao:D
Also i notice they don't even have CAPTURE the flag mode. We had that in BC2. It was actually fun lol.
I think this is called "Close Quarters" for a reason.

Also, this is coming in June so I'm sure they'll update the game and fix the current problems by then.
I'm really looking forward to this and I trust that DICE will make it right. I'm not gonna jump on the "OMG COD KIDDIES OMG DICE ARE SELLOUTS" bandwagon because I know DICE is better than that. This is going to be an excellent DLC.
You have to remember that DICE wants this game to dominate COD while also appealing to the people who love the huge combat of the other BF games. A large chunk of players enjoy this type of gameplay. If DICE doesn't provide this type of gameplay, those players will go back to getting their close quarter fix in COD. I love close quarters and large battlefields equally myself.
However it seems like DICE just assumes original BF fans are going to stick with it for the sake of the game called battlefield, and is and always had been focusing on dismantling the COD fanbase. Thats seems like the reality atm DICE doesnt give a goddamn about the original franchise, why? They know for a fact if they dont release Close Quarters right now as to later in the year, this game is going to be ripped apart by Black Ops 2. Its their primary focus to dismantle
Chip away at Cods fanbase, and then original BF fans as an after thought.
