Great idea! Will get that going before i head out the door today. Almost forgot it came out today. Played for the first time with the new patch lastnight, was throwing me off all night how they nerfed the drop shot lol. Got so used to doing it, and kept trying lastnight......only to die everytime. Need to get out of the habit of doing that. Other than that it seemed solid. hope to see you all tonight

So the 1hr & 45 min was just the AK map pack?  Damn......... 

I may not be playing much tonight if it took that long.  I have the most current patch and whatnot already.

When the boy got home from school, I had him (much to his displeasure) start downloading the map pack.  He said it only took 45 minutes.  Heh heh heh.  I was ready to roll when I got home shortly after that. 

Game play was,... meh.  Part of it was the unfamiliarity of the maps, I'm sure.  I still hate the way that none of the vehicles seem to have any torque to climb a hill....... 156 66

There was less action than in other maps, but still enough to keep me interested. 

It still seems like marking the enemy takes more than one time hitting the button or it doesn't work at all.  153

I think the maps are way to big for 24 players on console!  You may see an enemy or two every 4 to 5 mins if you are lucky! They did just ok for me with this expansion.. I think they tried to go for epic maps size instead of enjoyable gameplay..

I havent tried AK yet but this was my worry. "The biggest battlefield map ever!" So what. Theres no fun if you dont ever see any enemies.

First thing that came to my mind when I saw the maps. These maps are for 64 players. 

 

This is what happens when a game is tendered for PC. 

 

So I guess I will save my points and wait for Halo 4?

You see plenty of enemies, they are all in fucking vehicles.... it is called Armored Kill for a reason yes

 

 I had no problems running into enemies/battles or enjoyable gameplay.  I can consistently get more kills on these huge maps than I can on a map like Op Firestorm

This map pack is all about vehicle warfare. If you love vehicles, get it.  If you're meh on vehicles and a fan of the on foot action, then probably pass.

Yem I get it, but its also about how often you engage an opponent? Preferably you want to be enveloped by the action.

I had no problems being enveloped by the action. If anything I thought these maps brought more action due to running for my life when the building I was running through was being hammered with tank rounds and Gunship Sabo rounds.

This installment caused some issues with my previous downloads which was irritating as hell but other than that I am enjoying the new maps.

Major satisfaction taking out the Gunship with portable anti-air missile 45

Really, the only map were you might find yourself looking for an enemy is Bandar Desert(the bigest BF map)... I had no issue finding any action on Alborz Mountains or Armored Shield. And even Death Valley is good for some action too

 

 

I can only give you my opinion as a BF player that spends a TON of time in vehicles. I like them and I have no problem finding enemies to battle.

I'd like to see then buff the range of the stinger/igla. I had a chopper directly overhead and couldn't even get a tone, let alone a lock.

I am a BF fanboy all the way, but these maps are simply too big for the restrictions you have on consoles!  If I wanted a game where all I do is pretty much ride around and look at scenery and find an occasional enemy I would have bought Red Dead Redemption.. They either over do it or under do it, there is no happy medium any more..They have more emphasis on " oooooooohhh look at how badass Frostbite 2 is", rather than lets give the community  something feasable on console that true BF players can enjoy!  10 tank destroyers on a 50 sq mile map with 24 players is not BF on consoles reguardless of what anyone says. I split my time pretty even between infantry and vehicle play, so it will be hard to tell me how BF is suppose to be! Its suppose to be playable within the means of your hardware, not a fucking Skyrim expansion..I still love it because its BF, but I hope the next expansion is a little more console friendly.. That is all..

So are you suggesting that because I like these maps and enjoy them I'm not a "true BF player"????  127 106

 

 

I just finished up a game on Alborz mountains and went 29-12 with 11,000+ points. There was non stop action and I did a hell of a lot more than look at scenery 

 

We'll just agree to disagree 109

Simply suggesting that true BF players want to play BF, not ride around looking at cascading mountains,geese, ducks, dragons and shit.. No doubt with a few more times playing these maps I will warm up to them a lot more, but in the meantime I shall gripe because they decided race mice on a football field.

It really depends on the map.  In all of them you can control a few points on foot and defend - while winning!

I think a few of the maps are a little large - but then again i would rather they be large than small (haha)

I also think that knowing the maps will help a ton in everyones "enjoyability" with the new maps.  I was frustrated as hell the first day - 2nd is not so bad.  Lots of team work and stragety required to dominate.

A few of us have played the TS mode (tank superiority i think) - nothing but tanks and you control one point (king of the hill essentially).  Pretty fun way to play when you dont have to worry about planes and AC130's dropping shells.

On consoles, maps are too big in conquest and the AC-130 dominates the defending team too hard on rush. I appreciate the effort DICE, but did you guys even playtest the game for consoles? I'm not saying AK is bad or anything, but large, open maps is the bread and butter of BF3 yet AK is the least fun expansion so far. Hopefully I'm feeling this way because I'm just unfamiliar with the new maps.
