Dates for Maps, double XP and "battlefield premium"

WOW.


New DLC, Content Service, and Double XP Weekend




Quoted

We've got some exclusive (unofficial, but from a very reliable source) news and some new dates for you all. It looks like EA/DICE is rolling out a premium content service, and are also planning to drop 5th expansion after their previously announced End Game DLC. In addition, there will be a DOUBLE XP WEEKEND this weekend, May 12th - 14th!

Battlefield Premium : June 4th



Quoted

Battlefield™ Premium will land you a number of content drops with unique in-game items not available anywhere else. First out is the one-of-a-kind Premium knife and black dog tag, plus a set of soldier camos, weapon camos, dog tags and Assignments that will make sure you stand out and get more personalization options.

I like the idea, more personalization options for a price, without sacrificing game balance. If you want it pay for it, if not, it doesn't do you any harm. I personally want that unique knife. :D If only camo lasted for more than one round...

Ever since I heard about BF3 being released I was hoping that they would NOT do this, but sadly they have sold out. I do not want to have see some players get a higher SPM just because they are playing within a certain period of time. I do not want to pay just to get something extra that should be available to all players. I was upset when I saw the pay to unlock DLC, but this is just too much.

Why DICE/EA?! :(

On a side note, I'm glad to see a 5th expansion.

Double XP weekend?

Please.... I'm with Avo, this is one helluva way to screw up the already shoddy stats system!

'BF Premium' could be interesting, depending on how much stuff is included and what type of price point it is set at. If it is just a fiver or something I might get it for completion, and if they include a TON of assignments then it could be quite fun trying to achieve those. I want to see more first though, I know a lot of people would slash me for paying extra to DICE for this game! :D

A 5th expansion sounds nice to me, and it also puts some rest in my mind about the next standalone BF game. If they are already releasing something early 2013, then it means there is a good chance that 2142, BC3 or whatever they decide to make will be given extra time because EA are still making cash from BF3 and don't need to pump out another quite as fast.

It depends on how they double the XP really. If they double the points you receive for an action It'll double your SPM, AND your individual Kit/vehicle SPM too.
If it doubles your points at the end of the match, your general SPM doubles, but your individual kit/vehicle SPM doesn't change.
But (suggested by a friend) If it doubles your points at the end of the match, AND doubles the round time, your individual kit/vehicle SPM doesn't change and nor does general SPM.

and a 5th expansion sounds great!

They are definietly not starving ^. They could easily plan out different ways. Don't you see their transition to Pay-For-"This" system? First the Kit Shortcuts which is pretty insane...now possibly, they might give those "special" people means of ranking up faster and also the SPM stat might become worthless. Part of the game is the achievement of hitting that certain rank and showing it off. Without that concept we get a state of just "worthlessness", meaning no one is special...that's not fun, because "everyone" wants to feel special. You know what i mean?
