Wait what? They are restricting servers to premium only users? Jesus H Christ that is so messed up. I mean, I would understand it if all or most of the DLCs were out now so the server could switch between all the DLC maps without emptying their server but right now when CQ is the only one out? And as it is there isn't much selection of servers. I was planning on buying CQ but now I dont think so. I refuse to put down 50$ for a DLC I already have and for DLC that I won't even see until next year. Not only that for 2 DLC that we have no idea what they are going to be about.

It's not that bad. Armored kill is coming out in september and really it doesn't make sense buying all the expansions seperately because it costs more and you don't get the cool box cutter knife.

but it also doesnt make sense buying something before its released not knowing how buggy or garbage its going to be. look at all the people who pre-ordered bf3 ? get screwed pre-purchasing a game full of bugs n glitches that dice cant/wont fix because ea already had plans for all the dlc so as i said nothing gets fixed.

The game is not full of bugs, and tell me a game that does not have bugs.. if you enjoy battlefield 3 you will enjoy Premium and it will cost less then buying all DLC separately.

tell me how long it took them to fix start fixing bugs after release ? how long did it take dice to fix bugs that were reported right after release or even the bugs that were reported right before release ? ive played games that required all of 3 patches. the 3rd being patches for hardware released a good long time after the game released. how many games are released with bugs from the beta never being fixed?
im glad youre happy giving ea money for things you havent seen or never even know if youll see or if youll even want. theres a lot of people like me who wont hand over our money for something sight unseen.
telling someone they will like premium if they like bf3 is actually pretty stupid. right now premiu consist of a MAP PACK, a handful of guns and a few co-op missions. the guns dont even matter. give em 3 months and every one of those guns will be nerfed or buffed to be identical to another gun that you already have.
you can argue all you want about the benefits of premium. its a fkn ploy to get as much money as ea can from impatient people who think theyre getting a deal.
respond to my post. i dont care. it doesnt change the fact bf3 + premium is ea's version of cod milk money. open your eyes and stop drinking the kool-aid. buy something that you know nothing about and wont be able to see for almost a year. makes no sense at all.

Yes exactly the game was literally unplayable and I am not exaggerating one ounce. Personally I have never declared a game unplayable until BF3, of course there will be bugs especially at launch but BF3's release was the worst one I have ever experienced. I bought the game at launch. I was greeted by major bugs. Spiking/lag was horrendous. It showed my CPU spike every 5 seconds with an OC'd i2500k and just the basic programs running. Also the mouse fiasco where negative acceleration was present and no matter what you did you could not get a true 1:1 connection. I mean seriously how in the world could they possibly screw that up? Thank god Skyrim was released days afterwards. So I left the mess called BF3 and played Skyrim. I tried Bf3 once every week for a while to see if they had fixed it but to my genuine surprise they didn't until like month 2. After the first month I kind of stopped checking.

Finally when they fixed the mouse thing like 2 months later and I had finished with skyrim I started playing bf3. Well my CPU still showed spiking and I was getting major lag on every server. After days of trying to find a fix I realized it wasn't my system but the poorly coded game. So I left again for about a few weeks. Finally at month 3 I came back and finally the game was playable. So it took about 2-3 months for them to fix a AAA games major game breaking bugs. Don't get me wrong I really enjoy BF3 now but the initial support was abysmally horrid. And this premium thing does really bug me but I can live with it but when they start introducing queue jumping and private premium servers they are just really getting out of hand. WIthout a doubt if things keep going this way it will become pay-to-win. They will introduce special tacti-cool+OP weapons and gear and charge a premium. Hey at the way things are going now they just have to tell you that they are releasing 10 super awesome guns incrementally during the next 6 months without revealing anything about it and tell you that you'll save $ by buying the package now and they'll have scores of people throwing money at them.

Before anyone flames me because I know some people seem to like defending EA's actions I just wanna say I don't care. That's all I am going to say on this subject. Yes it's a rant, and no I'm not gonna apologize. It's just so frustrating to see this kind of stuff and this is a good way to vent and empty my anger chamber. It's not like I can talk to my friends who only play console as they will just say "what? DLC/Premium is awesome!" in turn frustrating me more.

Anyways, does anybody else agree that the AK-74+HB/KRDS is the best all around weapon in this game? Followed by the M16a3.

Not everyone had that much trouble. I know it was always playable for me, and didn't drop out or fail to load so often that I gave up, but I do totally concede that some people had hellish experiences.
