    Still no email back from support, I may have to end up buying it (that is if my account it now totally jacked up). I hear good things already about CQ but want to play myself.

    I like to think it's like CounterStrike. It's very fast-paced, even when playing with just 12 players. Played several rounds with the guys on TS last night, and I am very happy I've got it now.

    Still pissed that there was no lower-priced offer for BF3:Limited Edition owners, but then, i didn't exactly pay for Premium, either. ;)

    I'm so pissed I bought Diablo 3 right now I can't even see straight. The real money auction house has ruined the game. I could have used the cash to buy BF3 Premium.

    You better play when you are down Dave. I don't wanna suffer alone. :laugh:

    How has it "ruined" it? Though I don't know any details about this situation at all as I don't play that game.

    You don't have anything lying around the house you could sell on CL for $50?

    I told ya you might not wanna get it...you didn't listen, so no sweat off of my back on that one!


    :roll:


    And of course I'll still play! I don't need any auction house crap to play Diablo, and I'm not gonna stop palying BF3, hopefully. I might be able to get away with going back to using the controller again, about 2 weeks after the surgery. Diablo will be played with the tablet, as soon as I can!

    Yea I am glad I did not get diablo (or let my mom get it for me) I figured that if I barely have time for BF3 and other game, when will I have time for D3?

    I wish I didn't have to be at work right now! I want to play CQ! I love the P90 in CQ

    I also don't feel like CQ is anything like CoD its much more like Counter Strike. The overall gameplay is still battlefield but on smaller maps, however the maps are still way bigger then I thought they would be. You could fit like 3 MW3 maps on one CQ map.

    Yeah hip-firing is kind of a must most of the time; equip those laser sights (also using a suppressor in CQ for sure in place of heavy barrel)!

    Are there any other guns which rival the sick rate of fire and accuracy of the P90? It furthermore has that 51-round clip though which also comes in handy majorly.

    Also, what's everyone's favorite shotty and why?

    Edit: I never really played COD but I don't really feel it's like CS...there are so many other shooters and not sure why you "associate" CQ with that one. Can you explain further?

    I don't like any of the shot guns. I hate shot guns in all FPS games. To easy to kill people. The only time I use shot guns is during Gun Master because you have too.

    Yeah well I still get killed plenty either during reload or from behind. Prefer the P90 so far anyway though figured this DLC was a good place to use shotguns too, also as a change of pace.

    Yep, had one I went 0 and 9. Tried every load out I could come up with too. That is why I'm playing sober
    today just to confirm the booze was the problem. Doesn't help when I am on opposing teams against you guy's. That is always a handicap. :D

    Don't play this CQ for too long, your heart may suffer, well, will suffer.

    So far I like the flechettes. And as someone said exchange optical sights for iron sights etc. And the "run fast" extra has helped me several times.

    But Metro with its bottelnecks is still better... The new 4 maps are too easy for crazy mouse gods mass-produced by counterstrike and quake arena schools to attack you from everywhere like bloody mosquitos.

    I cannot but repeat and repeat my mantra: Will there ever again be something between boring RPS and cardiac FPS? Gotta try one day this paintball thing... 8)

    I whole-heartedly agree. I picked up Karkand when it was on a 50% off sale and probably will do as well with CQ. But right now I'm not interested in pre-paying for unfinished/undisclosed [features] dlc.

    The server priority BS is still irritating me. It's a big fu to everyone who bought vanilla or preordered BF3 and supported DICE. Good job on splintering your fan base! :banghead:

    Have you actually been inconvenienced by it yet or is it just the principle? Even if I never got Premium I can't see this actually causing me much crap in actual practice but I don't personally have a group of people I am always trying to play with or even a fave server(s). As such I rarely join queues anyway.

    Mainly principle but I've found that I'm burnt out on BF3 after 6 months or so. I'll revisit the game more in earnest maybe in a month or two. Although I'll still play a match or two a week just bc of the fps itch, you know? :)

    Well yeah maybe it wasn't too wise of an idea overall but I don't think it's largely ruining many non-premium user's experience in practice. Plenty sure are complaining about it though. Moreover, the community was already "fractured" in other ways such as across different platforms or people that only like Rush, or Hardcore, and so forth.


    Oh missed this earlier. I don't know; I sure have experience playing CS going back to some of the early betas but not nearly as much as many and I guess I didn't find it quite as fast paced as some of these CQ rounds so far. I feel like people kinda hung back in larger groups a bit more in CS and didn't constantly run around the entire map for the whole round (though maybe this will change a bit as people get to know these maps better). And despite the military theme and weapons I almost feel like the overall feel of the gameplay is more akin to, like, an Unreal Tournament release than to CS. Especially on that Scrap Metal map. :)

    Though I have only played it for like an hour so far.

    I played a while after you guys left and managed to get MVP on Gun Master 16 player round. Ate them alive :rockout:
