If you’re still not excited about the Armored Kill DLC, the launch trailer will surely put you over the top. Armored Kill is already out to Premium members on the PlayStation 3 and will be rolled out over the next few weeks to everyone else. Check out the full release schedule here. DICE has also released a patch along side the DLC, which brings a ton of weapon and vehicle tweaks. You can find the full patch notes here.

    Thes DICE trailers always make it seem a “bit” more exciting than the gameplay actually is, although there are some really intense moments in Battlefield that make your heart pound…and by the way COD sucks! :D

        Yes thats absolutely true pc Battlefield it 10 times better than console. However, even on close quarters DLC maps it is not as action packed even on small maps.

      I’m not trying to be Mr.BF3blog fanboy here but god damn people, cut the staff some slack. Toshiro left awhile ago so its down to one guy writing and posting these articles.

      Plus, pile having to take care of every day life and the extra work of a now gone staff member, the expenses and management of the website, and having to constantly search for news worthy of reporting…a few days old news isn’t that big of a deal, especially taking in the factors. I doubt any of us could do any better.

        I agree, he’s just one guy and he’s volunteering to do this, let it go. If you want to cry about the news being late then go to another site and stop whining on this one, or better yet, volunteer to help. What’s that? You don’t want to volunteer? You don’t have the time? My point exactly, Toshiro is doing the best he can so be grateful that he’s sticking around doing all the work by himself.

    played it alot & it was super great , marked some DICE armored kill servers as fav servers but the AC-130 was soo much easy to destroy even for enemy team we used jets , mobile AA & even attack helicopters & scout helicopters in another way it wouldn’t last longer than 2 minutes but still i’m having fun & i had to say this as console player i enjoy playing in it because nearly every vehicle was in the 4 maps & every i go i say actions in every position in the maps specially in armored shield but there was no jeeps & my favorite maps bandar desert & armored shield & they both are best to play tank superiority in it .

    Can someone explain to me why the big vanilla maps for conquest can’t have more capture points on consoles? The arguement from DICE used to be “we are already pushing the consoles to the maximum, and we can’t use more code than what we are already using…” or something to that effect…
    Now I have played on the new armoured kill maps, and there are more capture points than what the vanilla maps have…. Can someone explain how this is possible with the new maps, but not the old maps?…Please?

      The vanilla maps were designed as medium sized maps, while the armored kill maps are supposed to be much larger. Even on PC, Caspian Border has 5 flags compared to the console’s 4 flags. Just like in Armored Kill, the maps will have 7 flags on PC while there are only 5 flags on console. Its just how the maps were designed.

      Why would you want more flags on consoles? Having more than three or four flags spreads players out – people just go from flag to flag, rarely encountering others. Less flags creates more focus, everyone coming to the same spots. Do you disagree? What do you think more flags would achieve or does achieve?

        Because it gives players a place to conquer, and when go between locations you can take several routes thus exposing yourself and making for a lot of combat. This is the main reason I really enjoyed bfbc2 …. lots of open combat areas.

        What this game needs are mounted MGs..loads of fun!

    Initial impressions:

    Maps are designed well. But I really, REALLY hate to say it. At times they feel empty. The extra objectives help a lot. I think as people get more used to the maps, there will be more choke points. Right now though I am spending a lot of time running from objective to objective. Plus with so many vehicles, there are fewer Infantry battles. It kinda makes it pointless to pick any class besides engineer. Most enemies you run into are in tank destroyers.

    Speaking of which, why have tank destroyers and zero tanks? -_-

    The mountain stage is friggin awesome, but so empty. 12vs12 just doesn’t cut it.

    Keep the ac130 too. Thing is annoying. Spend 5 min running to the objective only to die unexpectedly from one shot. How about some sound on it or something so I at least know its there. Plus when I spawned out of it, I got dropped out of bounds more often than not.

    The dlc is absolutely worth buying, just wish we had 32 vs32.

      I agree, but even now the consoles are being pushed to their limits with Battlefield 3 so there is nothing we can do. Just buy a half decent graphics card so you can run BF3 on the PC :D . Im just getting like a $90 dollar one so I can run Battlefield on hopefully medium settings with reasonable FPS.

      Hey, try out abit of rush on the new maps. The only critisism rush is getting is the ac130 for the attackers being OP. But you just have to know how to take it down. Jets is the way to go against the gunship, but I wish the defenders had 2 jets not 1, that way if a bad jetcamper gets into the jet, you have to rely on iglas, whch takes abit of shooting. Also, ehy run to each objective there are quads and tanks ect.

        On the defending side in rush, they just can’t have 1 jet to counter the attacker’s jet + an attack helicopter + an AC-130. The defenders need some extra vehicles, like an attack helicopter, and one or two Anti-Air tanks. Or they can limit the attackers by giving them a Transport helicopter instead of an attack helicopter.

        Any Ideas?

          I agree. For exmple, death valley on one objective set I believe the attackers get 2 tank destroyers, an attack heli, quads, a jet and the ac130. The defenders get a tank destroyer and a jet. Is not theac130 thats overpowered and I hope dice don’t nerf it. Its thr resorces the defenders haveto take care of it. Defenders on this objectve should have maybe a littlebird, 2 jets 2 tanks. Then its very much a balanced fight. Nerfing the gunship won’t help. Think about it, alot of people run iglas, while they’re focusing on the gunship they are nt focusing on the ground, then its a weakened team to deal with the attackin forces I mentioned earlier. Its very difficlt, not undoable by a long shot on a good co-operative team, butmuch harder to defend than the vanilla maps. However it woulnt be i the defenders had more stuff to shoot with.

          I think substituting that Attack Chopper with the Transport Chopper is reasonable. As for the AC-130 for the attackers, I think that reducing the spawn time would be good. Either that, or Maybe only allowing 1 AC-130 per objective.

          Yes, reducing spawn time for the AC-130 in rush, and if the defenders shoot it down 3 times, it can’t respawn until the attackers take a set of objectives out.

      Your oblivious to the world outside your room and because of you I have lost some hope in humanity. DICE didn’t make you do anything, more importantly DICE doesn’t get to decided all the details of what gets released and when, their publisher EA handles that. DICE nor EA owes you anything, because you purchased the LE you got back to karkand for free, when it was released. Premium
      is simply EA’s answer to their biggest competition COD’s Elite service package. You have the option to purchase the expansions without buying premium. I’m gonna stop here because hope really is lost on you. I have a solution though, press start and select suicide and press the action button to confirm, this will restore my hope for humanity.

My efficiency is far ahead of most players, but the first thing you will hear from them is ” get a life”. Hmmm. I have 4-5x the statistics they do in 1/3-1/4 the play time. So in their world I’m living with 3-4x the quality of “life” they are living. Use common sense and your brain before making a bandwagon reply/comment.

        Premium gets you early access, not simply buying the dlc. While I’m not necessarily a fan of that, it’s been clearly stated for months. If you bought the dlc separately and are pissed you cannot play until the standard state, blame yourself, not dice/ea.

I turn it on today, try to find an Armored Kill game and Premium doesn’t recognize that I already have the shit dled and I need to do it again. I know 1.5 GB is small compared to some of the other updates, by my internet is retarded slow. This is my only day off this week, and I probably won’t be playing the damn game till 3 in the afternoon with how slow my internet is. And, I already jerked off this morning.
