The PS3 Premium has had a price drop. It's now $64.95. I wonder if there's any refund/credit to those who paid $80?

There's an odd warning in the PSN Store - says that the Pack needs to be downloaded from the in-game store otherwise you will be charged twice. If that's the case why doesn't Sony just remove the download link from the PSN store?

edit: wow... I'm getting crapper at this game (I didn't think that was possible) I'm not sure why, but I just can't seem to hit the broad side of a barn at the moment.

List of all the features and DLC with Premium (including what the DLC packs cost separately) -
http://www.battlefield.com/au/battle...remium-details
But yeah, you're mostly paying for all DLC packs in the one payment and early access.

Even though I'll be getting the Premium pack, I really don't agree with the queue jumping feature. It's a feature that I think won't be much of an improvement for those on Premium, but will make the gaming experience worst for those who aren't.

the other thing i don't agree with is the double XP weekends that premium seem to get. New/advanced access to a few weapons (as long as their not stupidly strong) is fine, but if you're going to give double XP out then do it for everyone.

I wish there was a way to trial the DLC, cos tbh after talking to Derelict on Sat he made me realise that I, too, am getting kinda bored with BF3.
I don't wanna buy the DLC and then realise I'm over BF3 in general...

of all the miniscule shit you spend 50+ posts harping on in this thread, you don't have the right to trivialise my annoyance at stupid details.

Too late, I've already played about 7-8 rounds.
It's good so far, I was getting raped the first few rounds something like 9-18 but then sort of got a groove.
Ziba Tower is by far the best right now.

Just won a Gun Master round first go; that's some frantic shit. Lead was lost and clawed back 10 or so times before I got a lucky knife kill to finish.

I don't now if it's just the map I played or if my comp is due for a reboot, but the mouse movement felt weird like I was underwater. The map was that expensive house/resort-whatever-the-fuck Ziba Tower which has a lot of shootable walls and glass which may explain it.

man that fucking LVG is so hard to get kills with on gunmaster. good work on winning it. freaking hard to win!.

pwning pretty hard at conquest domination though. i can totally see C4 people used a hell of a lot


the majority of scrap metal doesnt even need to be used to run between those flags, if you know the right roots you can get from all 3 within the space of 5 seconds.

favourite is prob operation 925 at the moment.

I checked out my BF profile the other day and realised that i have over double the kills of any other weapon with the M249 SAW.

fuck me, it was like I've been using a paintball gun for the last few month. finally last night i was confident if i shot first I'd get the kill.

won a gunmaster today. biggest comeback was about 8 kills down. smashed through the last half of the levels so quickly. got the LVG, got a double kill STRAIGHT away, ran around a corner and knifed a guy and took the win. was ridiculous

Unless it went longer there is no way I'm ever going to win a Gun Master round.
I get as far as weapon 10 most times.

basically start off with an MP443, each 2 kills you get a "better" weapon, works up till you get to the LVG grenade launcher, which launches grenades but they dont explode on impact nor can you get direct impact kills, they explode like a normal grenade.
which you need 1 kill from that and then 1 knife kill to win.

tbh, i thought i'd never win but the more you play it the better you get with the weapons etc. you'll get used to it.

im curious if it works on normal maps though (obv the TDM varieties)

It's really just the LVG that is ruins it. It relies a lot more on spamming areas and crossing your fingers, reducing the kill to little more than a lucky shot.

I reckon they'll change this weapon next patch.

The best I've done in GM is about 8th I'm too old for games where reactions count over tactics. :oldbutshifty:
You can level up like a mofo playing close quarters domination, especially on a 200-300% ticket server. Racking up 30+ kils and capping 10-15 objectives yields about 20,000 points per game.

yeah def great for xp.

trick with gunmaster is to start off good. if you get caught on those initial weapons itll be tough to catch up.

if youre about halfway through when someones up to the LVG its still possible to catch up

I struggle with the .44 too much - so often I'll get one good clean shot, leave them on 5% health but they get a few MP443 or PP19 rounds into me. Lots of Kill Assist points but fuck all kills

most ridicuous come back ever. absolutely ridiculous
totally 100% won that game for my team and no matter what team i was on i would have won.

was on wake island conquest assault. i was on the shit team, were were down 200 tickets most the game. all my mates were on the other team and through 500 tickets i couldnt freakign switch teams cause noone would leave.

when we're down to like 5 tickets to 188 or osmething we suddenly turn the tide and manage to take all 5 flags, the enemy cant spawn except they have 1 guy left in a jet. at this point its 1:180. we're losing, they only need 1 kill but they only have 1 guy up.

he goes in for a kill, gets it, but a split second before he does, i shoot a tank shell straight into his jet. won the game for us.

best play ever. wish i had a capture card for that.

i was laughing hysterically at my mates. not to rub it in but out of sheer amazement because they were all going nuts like "ahhh shit this guy needs to jump out of the jet" and were stressing hard watching tickets go down.

was pretty shocked. shooting a jet down with a tank is cause enough for celebration let alone in those conditions!

gun master is extremely frustrating.

my controller almost went through the window last time i played it

also last night had to cancel a game i had 50kills vs 20 deaths because it was just taking soooo long. played 45min and there was still 180 kills left. not sure they should allow 500kill TDM levels.

wait, wtf, 500 kill TDMs generally only go for 30-40 minutes from my experience?

what level was it on?

maybe the levels are bigger on pc?

yeah, I may or may not have thrown the controller at my monitor playing GM a few days ago.

I'm offline at the moment then away on holidays so won't be playing for a month.

Hey guys, with the delivery of my superior input device due this Friday I was wondering if the PC gamers think its worth rebuying this considering I already have it on the PS3?

Anyone playing it on both? The idea of 64 players is a huge selling point.

I've got it on both PC and PS3. I think the experience is different enough that you won't regret getting the second copy. I only really play the PS3 version now to catch up with certain friends.

Definitely, the game's made for PC.

I've played both and you'll shit your pants at how much better it is on a good PC. Be warned there will be a little learning curve, PC players are ruthless.

A question for the pc guys, how many servers are you usually seeing (especially au/nz servers). No matter what I do to my filters I am lucky to be getting 5 of which 4 are usually empty?

I'm not sure what the deal is but over the past 24 hours I have only found two different au servers with people in them? Everything else (worldwide) isn't even showing it's ping

I find the more filters you use, the more results you'll get (the PC server search is pretty screwy). Using the following, I got about 30 servers just now -

Filter:
Game: Battlefield 3, Back to Karkand
Region: 1 (Australia only)
Preset: Normal, Hardcore
Ranked : On
Punkbuster : On
Game size: 32, 48, 64
Free slots: Full, 1-5, 6-10

Also, once the server list appears, scroll down to the bottom of the page as doing so may load more of the list.

Yeah the filter is arse, I don't understand why it's so hard for them to fix it. Are they trying to direct traffic semi-intelligently to various servers with some sort of goal? Hitting refresh with the same settings tends to give back different results everytime, so it's worth hitting it until you get a server that's decent.

Now I tend to use the history tab as it's chock full of servers that are near full. Obviously you need to build this list first though

Turns out as soon as i unchecked premium i got a decent list Had a few good games last night and considering I'm new to BF3 on PC I seem to be doing alright.

I'm really digging the PC over the PS3 too, I don't see myself playing the PS3 version again. Though I will have to buy a xblox controller, I have gone from being pretty ace in a helicoper (well the flying part anyway, the killing stuff is another matter all together) to a complete nub with the mouse/keyboard.
