Lbsutke: the Youtube BF premium video got removed by the time I saw yr post.

  Probably just the same stuff as the Joystiq link though.

 

I really am not favoring giving money to the likes of EA and Activistion before I see the final product.

It's like paying a home improvement contractor in advance for a 3-room remodel and trusting he'll do the job right - even after you've seen the crap work he's done on other people's houses.

Giving you 4 new Cod-sized 16-player maps and a bunch of new guns and calling it a $15 DLC is kinda shady to me.

 

I'm seeing COD elite and BF premium as a slippery slope down.

It's like the potato chip bags or toilet paper - you think you are paying the same price - but the content inside slowly shrinking.

EDIT

  The new Armored Kill trailer came out today 7/18 and it looks good enough that I can take a gamble on the last 2 DLC which are still unknowns.  BF4 is still a long way out so I'll need something for my BF fix.

And if they take that down, just type 

 

bf3 premium trailer, today

 

into the YouTube search to see if somebody else put it back up.

 

Hmm...new game modes: "Tank Superiority" and "Gun Master" with the already revealed "Conquest Domination."

 

Here's the bit of news everyone who's been sitting on the fence has been waiting for:
New knife: ACB-90 http://battlefield.wikia.com/wiki/File:ACB-90.jpg

 

ATVs are back...hehe. If you spawn in on me while I'm on one of these things dressed as a support and humming the trololo song, bail.

Looks like the 2 weeks early access is for the PS3 only

Members who pay the $50 fee will receive special privileges online including the ability to erase their game statistics, as well as special items in games such as dogtags and knives. Gamers who buy the service on their Sony PlayStation 3 console will get to play new parts of the game two weeks earlier than non-members.

Sounds like it is similar to Prestiging to me.

Because I did a lot of stupid things when I was younger. I was finding my way. I shouldn't be penalized by something I did in my youth...especially because I was trying to rank up guns. Plus, chicks are all about the KPD. No, I'm not going to reset my stats.

So, if you really like gold, you'll love the interface changes. Only the guns used in the assignments have one assignable camo (which can range from desert to neon blue). Two new uniform camos. RU side will be ready to fight on the set of The Predator. I thought, "Cool. Jack of all trades dog tags. Totally describes me. Oh, I have to complete ALL of the new assignments first. Some day." More to do with the patch, but color blind mode feels like cheating (in Core).

I don't know, maybe I'm used to the default colors or maybe it's because the colors they chose for the color blind mode aren't found in nature, but they smack you in the face; there is no denying them. Several times I was able to hone in on somebody as if the whole spotting system was "enhanced." Probably doesn't make any sense.

 

I'm going to see if it's something else I just need to get used to. Otherwise, I might move it back. It's like playing with vibration turned off. I feel like I'm sacrificing immersion for a competitive edge. (Not that glowing name tags are exactly "current day military sim.")

Did anybody else have their server browser filter set to only the new maps? NO SERVERS FOUND. I was in such a hurry to play that it took me a couple of clicks of refresh before I noticed the maps number.
