    So you're gonna protest buying this DLC because they are not giving you a discount on something you didn't pay for to begin with?

    You do. When they give a deal for that, I might buy, otherwise, forget it. "Back to Karkand" was $15..I want at least $10 off. AT LEAST!

    :D

    Yes, Premium is not required to buy the other expensions. It merely provides some dog tags, 5 weapons to be unlocked, and early access to the expansions. Expansions wil lstil be available for purchase seperately for $15 each.

    so true Mailman...

    so I 'got' karland for preordering, but now i am buying it again, so it was only a temporary 'gift'... Can we call it any other way?

    I expected Premium to be $59 bucks. So all in all seems like a fair deal to me. Not a great deal or bad deal, it's fair.

    I agree. BF2:SF offered less maps and weapons and it was 39.99 about 7 years ago.

    And the incentive for premium is not there for me without a deal? I don't care WTF you think about how I got it. Not everyone got it as incentive for pre-ordering, and there should be some discount for "early adopters".

    Edit: Well yes, Karland was a separate buy, wasn't it?... SO there is still room for full-hardcore-kritiking EA.

    quick copy&past says every DLC is 4 maps, so not counting Karland, it is 16 new maps... I just clicked 'buy' because I like DICE even if I hate EA with all my muscles...

    No incentive? If me asking you in my angelic voice for orders on new maps isn't an incentive I dunno what is.

    You paid 39.99 for less vehicles, maps and weapons 7 years ago.

    NO, I didn't. I bought Special Forces for $20.:rolleyes: Try again.

    (Actually, it cost me nothing, as i traded in orginal XBOX games for it at ebgames, price and reciept still in the box.:laugh:)

    And just because I did something 7 years ago, doesn't mean I'll do it again. Arse. Like really? That's the best you could come up with?

    I have to pay 50 Euros over here. That's for an expansion I already have, for an expansion that's not my style (close quarters combat) and for another three that will come in almost one year span (last one March 2013). Money milking at its best - now you can buy straight from battlelog - but only the premium pack and not a single expansion (CQ)

    Well I paid 39.99 new and even at THAT price it wasn't as good a deal as this one. Your just arguing to argue :D :laugh:

    Add 10 per pack (Euro Force, Armor Fury) even at 20 bucks for SF with inflation its STILL not as good a deal as Premium.

    Actually, I'm stating my opinion, you're the one arguing. LULz. LOSER.


    It's not $49.99, either:

    Doesn't sound like it was free. Best promotion ever "pre-order and you get this for free". (aka you'll just pay for it 6 months from now) :laugh:

    That's because your wacky Canadian currency is made out of petrified maple syrup!

    Actually, currency has nothing to do with it. It's an error on Bottlelog, and is in USD.

    Of course. Ours is made out of petrified bull sh!t. Everyone loves maple syrup. If they don't then they read Green Lantern.

    No post of the Close Quarters launch video?



    New game mode in Close Quarters, Gun Master, is apparently "Gun Game" mode from Call of Duty.
