1st off, how's the newest DLC pack? Haven't heard much about it, what's the good, bad, and ugly scoop?

That being asked... I'm on the fence for Premium. I love BF3, but it infuriates me beyond belief with the servers and spammers, but it's so addicting! So, do you like the new weapons, trophies, skins, etc...

Not trolling, serious question.

If you're planning to buy all the DLC anyway, Premium will save you about $10
I like Close Quarters but it gets repetitive & boring after a while
My favorite new map is by far Scrapmetal
I completed all the CQ trophies & I've unlocked all the new weapons
It's a nice package but I can't wait until Armored Kill is released

I wouldn't get premium if you're on the fence. The last expansion won't release for another year so it's likely you'll be done with the game by then. It only saves you $10 and one of the expansions will probably be lame.

CQ is cool if you're into CoD type run and gun, without all the lame killstreaks constantly mowing you down. You'll probably get at least 5-10 hours of fun before the maps get tired. The assignments/weapon unlocks add to the fun.

Bought CQ on Friday, it's great in all but it's not 'regular' BF madness. I got kind of bored after playing it a couple times and ended up just going back to regular/b2k maps. I cannot wait for armored kill.

I will play CQ once I need a bit of run and gun action; but it's okay at the most. The best thing about CQ is the new weapons; which are bad-ass.

Ill wait until they are on sale individualy or a sale on the premium pass. MW3 DLC is on sale this week.

What's "on sale". With BO2 coming out; they will have a hard time selling crappy MW3 DLC.

I've been playing CQ for the past 2 weeks, I love it. The office level is awesome as well as a few others.

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 2, 2012 6:17:53 AM PDT
I have played them more than a few times now and its kind of a love hate relationship, instead of what i think was set out to be a strategic holding of the flags in CQD turned into a merry-go-round of take A, go to B, Lose A, Take C, Lose B, Take A, Etc. Some of the videos for tips talked up how to hold down the area but its really a point fest. I can handle every single weapon in this game except for 1 and in CQ the way people use C4 is just friggin $%# .
By far Scrapmetal is the best level to me as well, it also might be the biggest, i do like one of the other levels where it looks like your in a mansion that level is fun as well.
As already stated by a couple I have unlocked everything that was offered with this package and I am enjoying those weapons as well. I think CQ is good in small doses because its very chaotic the whole match and probably is great in hardcore mode.
As far as premium goes if you love BF3 I would get it, yah you save $10 but you will get some kind of cool gear a couple times this year not sure what if its just camo or not.
Keep in mind you will not get anymore weapons as the 20 weapons included the B2K weapons so if you are had the limited edition the 10 that come with CQ makes 20.

"CQD turned into a merry-go-round of take A, go to B, Lose A, Take C, Lose B, Take A, Etc."

Pretty much sums up CQ. I like it, but no one is good in CQ. There are so many weapons in BF3 and you can barely use any of them in CQ because its all about fire rate and reaction.

For example, I was using an MP7 because my usual L895A/M16A3 were just not getting the job done.

I will tell you this if you do not know it is "DOUBLE XP WEEK" 2-8 July for premium members, CQD will get you a lot of points and is a good time to do it during this Double XP time.

@ JJ yah i contantly had to change weapons and then just started working on my shotty kills like the Saiga 12K

As soon as I get the Spas 12 and MK5, I will be using those 2. Yes the Assault classes have higher damage but most of them aren't responsive and fire rates are low. The F2000 and M16A3 are pretty much the only 2 guns you can use on CQ that's assault. The FAMAS is nice too but has way to much recoil.

I have been using the MP7 with extended clip, G53, SG553 mostly. I tried using the G36C; it was pretty responsive too.

I am sure the PDW and A-91 would do justice too.

BTW, I am only playing on hardcore.

I decided not to get Premium in the end because I didn't think I'd like all the expansions. I'm not a big fan of the team deathmatch matches in BF3. Close Quarters is even more of that. Though the gun master mode seems fun it's not enough to make it worthwhile. The same could be the case for others. In the end I'll feel like I'm wasting money. Now I enjoy using the various tanks in the game. I can't pilot to save my life (I'm good as a gunner but that's it and that really depends if I have a good pilot that can keep us i the air long enough) but put me in a tank and I can do pretty well. So I'll likely get Armored Kill depending on what the maps look like. The other expansions are complete unknowns in terms of content and I don't like pay for something I don't have any information on.

I played some hardcore the other day and really enjoyed it, really took the frustration away of people not dying like they are suppose too. Also not Team killing was a lot easier than i least for me it was.

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 2, 2012 6:54:52 AM PDT
Yeah, I got TK'd at least 50 times yesterday. I never team kill though, unless someone goes right in front of my bullets.

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 2, 2012 8:42:11 AM PDT
Yah that happened to me the other day i was sniping with the L96 and some knuckle head walk right in front of me as I fire and i mean in front of me like a foot he saw me sniping so not sure what he was thinking.

I'm way too conditioned to core. I shoot anything that moves and constantly spam the spot enemy button. I'd get kicked out of a hardcore server in under a minute.

I've got a Premium question (yes, I know I can search it on google, but I'm already on here and time at work is short). Does it link to your battlelog ID and work for any system, or just the one you purchase it for? I'm thinking about getting it, but I"m hoping to get a PC built end of this year or early next and I know I'm going to be playing BF3 on it, so I'm going to want all of the expansions for that as well. Not sure if it's worth spending 50 now and 50 more on the PC too...

No it only works for one system. Save your money for armored kill on pc.

best part about the new dlc is by far the weapons.. when they did that massive update a few months back it completely ruined my fun with the famas and f2000, but now with the AUG and ACR the game rocks again.. plus the new CQ maps are a lot of fun as long as you have a good team.. overall loving premium so far, completely tore me away from COD :)

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 3, 2012 6:52:18 AM PDT
Aug is great - but get a red dot first lol. ACR is killer.

CQ is awesome imo now, really shows how well DICE can make maps compared to other companies..........cough.

Posted on Jul 3, 2012 7:27:01 AM PDT
can you play any other modes on the CQ maps, Rush would be interesting to see as that is where you could really use some of that strategy i have hear about locking down key areas in the map, maybe have just 2 rush terminals since they are kind of small
