    Yep, they pulled another classic EA with this premium shit.

    Anyway, if you don't already see where I'm going with this, allow me to spell it out: the only meaningful MMORPG "endgame" -- i.e., something novel to do after the progression process is over -- is that of the sandbox.

    Wow....I didn't know you get FUCKING VEHICLES! My god. This is way worse than that COD premium thing. Some people are too stupid to understand that this isn't ok.
    It's ok to pay twice for B2K(if you bought limited edition)? It's ok to get EXCLUSIVE VEHICLES AND WEAPONS IN A GAME WHERE VEHICLES AND WEAPONS MAKE A DIFFERENCE? I would be ok with cosmetic skins or something, but actual weapons and vehicles!?!
    Christ people, you don't even know what the hell Aftermath and Endgame are and what they offer but yet you still buy them! Who knows, you probably will quit BF3 to play planetside 2 or something before those come out.
    BF3 premium is just one massive preorder. A preorder with the most offensive exclusives that I have ever seen.

    Bash this post all you want, but if you bought premium me and EA are laughing our asses off at you.

    I'm going to sound a little rude here and I apologize but, cry more? Seriously, every post I see is about how bad Premium is, yes it's just EA trying to get more money but they're a company and I don't see how this is a bad deal at all, your getting all upcoming DLC, a ton of new weapons, dog tags, outfits (or w/e they call them), assignments, vehicles and you get the DLC 2 weeks early AND your saving at least $20. So tell me, what part of that is a "bad deal"? I'm starting to think that the people saying it's bad are just jelly that they can't afford it.

    This. I was planning on getting the DLC anyway, so for me it's a good deal. I save money and get some extra stuff.

    Edit: now that I think about it, 4 more DLC's ~$20 each, you are saving ~$20. If not more.

    They haven't said, but considering how CQ is the smallest DLC, I would assume they would all be the same price if not more.

    It's for the newcomers that didn't get it with the pre-order or bought it afterwards already.

    Please let us be able to fly C130s, it will be the baws seriously. Can't wait though, Close Quarters are nice and all but Armoured Kill will be more fun imho.

    That said I wish they had 10 more maps or infact 10 more of everything in the new DLCs :3

    Could someone outline or provide a link to what one gets right now if they subscribe to the Premium service right now. I understand that future DLC's are included, as well as early DLC access and some Battlelog features. But are additional weapons, appearances, and vehicles unlocked immediately? If so is there a list of those items somewhere?

    well, you get access to the camo on your weapons right away, as well as the premium appearances, the weapons come with the expansions and completing the new assignments.

    Uhm you actually do not get an advantage by buying these expansions or paying for the premium service... You can only use the new tanks n stuff in the new maps you get from buying the DLCs. So you only get to play with other people who have the EXACT same options like you.

    And that just wiped every trace of regret I might have had on the Premium purchase. DICE deserves my money for doing this.

    From what I read you won't actually be able to pilot the thing which saddens me but those maps looks amazing and freaking massive!
