For those of you who may have been holding out on Premium like myself, Amazon.com has a sale for $24.99. I refused to pay $50 for this as it is a clear money grab by EA. So unfair to the existing players who preordered etc. But for $25 i bit and purchased it, as its the cheapest i've seen so far (for Canadians at least).

Works for Canadian CC. Just need to put in any american address. I just used my parcel pick up address in America.

Started playing gun master / scavenger yesterday. Good mode

Was pretty tepid about Aftermath at first, but after finally playing a bunch of Rush after finals (and Gun master / Scavenger / Conquest Large yesterday) I've finally begun to appreciate what a great expansion this is. It is truly a great game.

End Game is going to be even better. They're going to bring back Capture the Flag. Good times.

So I just started playing Battlefield again recently after taking some time off. I like how you get to choose your server now, it gives people the choice to play the specific maps that they like over others, which no one likes (Tehran Highway, looking at you).

One thing that I really think they need to add, and forgive me if this is already there but I just haven't seen it, is servers that are purely for people to practice flying in planes, choppers, etc.

I usually play Conquest, but I find more often than not, on maps like Caspian Border, at least 3 or 4 of my teammates will be doing nothing but hanging back at our base, waiting for a plane/chopper to respawn, take it up and either immediately crash or get killed, then do it all over again until the game ends.

Obviously, as someone who is trying to play the objective, I find this extremely frustrating. That's up to a quarter (I play on console) of my team that's just screwing around, and no matter how hard I try, or good of player I am, it's basically impossible to win the game.

Thoughts? Should they get some dedicated servers just for people to practice their flying or driving in?

You can easily practice your helo skills in coop, and if you find any server that's unpopulated, you can spawn in and fly around while it waits for enough players to start the game.

So why are there so many people not playing the objective?

Just go to an empty server and fly

People don't follow the objective because they're stupid. Today I was playing BF3 and the other team publicly complained in chat about how his team didn't defend his points.

"You see those points with letters on the map...defend them"

Because not everyone cares about winning, and not everyone is good at the game.

I find it really frustrating to play the game.

You defend the objective and you get kicked for camping.
You play aggressive sniper so you could capture objectives and get kicked for using >8 scope with rifle
You defend a hallway when playing rush, while being the squad leader and giving clear objectives and get kicked for soloing ????
Go to a server that mostly has one clan vs random players, they spawn camp the whole game and if you shoot back you get kicked.
If you are doing well and VIP comes to the server, the best players are kicked so the mods side will start winning.
Rules like no shotguns/spawnkill/RPG,C4,GL vs infantry is only moderated only when you do it.

And lack of hardcore servers when its the only way the games should be played.

I play this once in awhile and I still find it fun. However it takes me forever to find a suitable server that I would find fun. Ever since EA made an option for people to rent servers, I barely see any EA servers. It's idiotic because people put ridiculous rules.

The only complaints are

- stupid Battlelog server searches
- unbalanced teams

If you're on the losing side...you'll be stuck on the losing side for 4 or 5 more rounds

There's nothing more satisfying than sniping the pilot of a helicopter from half way across the map.

I got kicked from a game earlier because of PB. But I updated it, it was fine. I then was on a scavenger server that went to Gun Master at Ziba Tower, and was OWNING (21-2 or something like that), then I got banned for supposed "Enforcing previous ban". Ummm... what? I was dominating the **** out of them and I got banned . And today was my first day playing in like 2 months.

About a month ago I was playing on Bandar Dessert. I managed to hit the same Helicopter SIX times with tank shells, with 4 of those shots being 400+ meters away. I also managed to rpg him once after he managed to disable my tank.

Good ****. I'm glad I got back into this. I'm excited for Endgame next week.

I will agree re. the losing side comments and stupid admins.

I hate spawning into games that stack one side and fail to balance the game for 5-6 rounds. I don't get how the 'score' system (where every player is given a score based on their K/D against other players' scores) ****s up so badly in autobalancing.

Stupid admins are hard to deal with, but once you find a good server, make sure to add it to your favourites by going Server Browser -> History, and then favourite the server you were on. I've got at least half a dozen decent ones. The server browser's also good for finding EA/Dice hosted servers.

Trying to find a Scavenge server (let alone one you can win in) that isn't full or empty is a real ****ing pain. Trying to unlock the XBOW so I can go unlock the rest elsewhere (other levels/modes).

Downloaded end game today for PS3. Air superiority is a lot of fun. Air battle all day and little to no lag at all. A tremendous amount of hilarious moments when you fly into people.
