    Fyi...

    Got a scam email about premium...losers. FIrst of all, I didn't pay for Premium, so this caught my attention right away. Of course, it was just added to my account yesterday morning, so no three days have passed either.


    Then, there are other details that don't fit, but I won't mention them and help out the scammer. :cool:


    Don't fall victim to this one!:

    They might be pushing an update to their servers for this VM bug? Not sure.

    I was just about to play, might as well get a bite to eat first!

    It does suck ass, thankfully I won't have to wait anymore. You are correct about it being more annoying trying to follow friends on servers. For instance, last week Haru was fifth in the queue, while I was sixth. All of the sudden, he was in game, while I stayed at sixth place for another 6 minutes or so. During that time other premies were joining the server.

    It's the queue jumping and new assignments that prompted me to buy as I wasn't super interested in the frenetic play style of CQ. It is much more fun than I was anticipating, though.

    Sorry I was on my other machine not set up for TS. I played a round and started kicking their ass and they all bailed. Bastards !
    I'll play tomorrow night. I have a bunch of shit to do tonight to get ready to go back to work after a week off.

    If that was the case they must have figured you turned your hacks on. Gotta bail from a server that's populated by hax.

    Any chance of seeing gun mode on previous maps? I'd love to play it on Bazar, the extra room would make it very interesting, Metro would be nice as well. Hell, they all would be fun with it.

    Definitely. I am figuring that at least part of that is knowing the guns and attachments so well by now (to say nothing of simply having the upgrades in the first place) and also getting to use them in sort of new scenarios (unless you only played Metro but this has a diff feel than that too somewhat). I probably would not enjoy it as much just "jumping in" to CQ.

    Been having lots of fun with the P90 from the hip and Claymores. Some servers already specifically ban C4'ing the flag areas but that is understandable. About to play some again now; been packing up to move apartments all week, ugh.

    New maps are pretty cool; still learning them. Need to watch that video on the Premium page.

    Oh how come there is no Conquest Domination ribbon though? I feel cheated out of points! :)

    Yeah they are pretty good. Not nearly as small as I thought they would be.

    Scrap metal is my fav, the others seem so COD , but they are growing on me. Also , sometimes you live for 2 seconds the whole round, which is annoying, it for me is about as much fun as I figured. Dont think the fun will last long .........great way to get mega points though!

    The day I hear people praising bottleneck maps in a BF thread...
    [​IMG]

    I get that crap all the time, switching through things in my kit, then switch back to main weapon and my hands are empty. Died a few times from it.

    What's really surprising is that these maps really seem to NOT be bottle-neck frenzies like Metro is. I can't say I've even seen a line from at any single point...there's countless routes through each map, and more often then not, it's multi-floored access, making it really dynamic.


    The one map that imght end up with each team standing their ground at specific points is Scrap metal. But also ahving GunMaster on that map seem to make people want to just keep moving...I've only seen people camping twice so far, which is pretty good.

    Yeah thats what I've heard, and thats nice. the idea of an open Infantry map is fine by me. but when I see someone complain about that and list bottlenecks as a maps main attraction point, it just makes me sad, that should be a bad thing, it's the reason I don't frequent Metro, it's a good SPM map for heals/revives/ammo and thats about it.

    Yeah, I was very worried that these maps would be very Metro-like. BUt I played the early access on PS3, saw that it wasn't, and that was enough for me to look into getting it. I'm not exactly a fan of the new maps, but they do add a bit of fresh gameplay taht helps keep the game interesting.

    This deserves a double post but OMG this is so fun. Whoever said its similar to Counter Strike is very right. The tighter maps but NOT a meat grinder is PERFECT.
