    Return to Karkand is a 4 map pack, you get it for free if you pre order Bf3. It will be released sometime in Dec.
    The 4 maps are old maps from Bf2 and Bf1942 (Wake Island)

    And is pre-ordering the same cost as it would be to buy the game?

    If so, then i might consider it. Where best to pre-order?

    The Squad function wasn't working, so I imagine coordinated play was very low. And those MCOMs are certainly a challenge to take without a team effort.

    It´s the same cost.
    You can pre order from Origin, Amazon and some other places.

    I don't know if it's the same elsewhere, but if you order from Origin on the PC, you can start downloading the game on the 21st, so it's good to go on the 25th.

    Nonsense. I pushed for them and capped all the time. People where just too busy hiding on the island and playing Vasily Zaytsev.

    Of course it is. You're not going to pay any more to pre-purchase the game. Where you do so, is up to you. I'm not sure if you can pre-load to PC if you purchase from a physical retailer though. Honestly, I'm just buying it from Origin to keep things simple.

    Fix't for you ;-)

    I bet you a large sum of money that when the expac is released your server list will have an insane amount of 'Wake Island 24/7'.
    Must... resist... posting... huge... animated GIF...

    I won't mind 24/7 Wake Island for a bit :P, I didn't mind 24/7 Nuketown servers for a while but got bored after a day or so. But Wake Island was an awesome map and it will be hawt in the new engine xD

    Why do we have to have a company such as EA in lead for awesome game like BF? :<

    well, its funny cause this is why Steam will not get BF3 for now, cause Valve demands that the games they supply DLC exclusive for STEAM, forcing players to use their service instead of others cause of those DLC's.

    Who is Greedy? Valve and EA are both in the business of making money from games, Origins is a one stop shop for all EA games, Valve is a one stop shop for all other games except when they cant get exclusives DLC's.

    EA should not be forced by anyone to provide exclusives to other companies so those can make a profit, period.

    i think all of them offer BF3 + first Expansion as a package, just try to see what offer a better deal, but on the end of the day you will need Origins to be installed to be able to play BF3

    Same, and same.

    I also could cap MCOM stations with the right tactics (normally a dive for cover then flank while the ridiculous amount of people hiding behind rocks and on that island covered me).

    And I also pre-ordered from Origin to keep it simple, as much as the program annoys me, and I had to pay a little more, I expect the service I receive from the source to be simple and easy.

    I think you have the wrong end of the stick, Crysis 2 was removed for conflicting terms with Steam - with another download service. The reason behind this, if you look further into it, is DLC. If you remember Mass Effect, the DLC had to be obtained by going to the Bioware site, making an account, buying points, getting DLC.

    What Valve/Steam is trying to accomplish is ease of use for the consumer (aswell as not sending people to the competition, thats just bad manners) - basically EA wants people to go to Origin to get their DLC's for the games. Steam obviously is not going to allow this, for 2 principle reasons - that's just ridiculous, expecting their users to have to set up an account at Origin just to get their DLC's when they purchased the game in Steam - especially with EA's track record, just look it up. The EULA's in the past and even up to the present as I have posted, were scary, the systems were a buggy mess for years with barely a patch of any kind in sight and the customer service was so poor the users would have been better off just not bothering. The second reason ofc is you don't send your customers to the competition - would you accept a product in your store if it had a clause where by customers were told to go to a competing store to finish their purchase?

    Steam isn't looking for exclusive DLC's, I don't know where you read that lol, Steam never ask for it. EA is asking for it. And expecting Steam to comply, unfortunately for EA, steam isnt D2D or Amazon. Steam is not small and able to be puppeteered by corporate influence, and it refused. The others stand to gain from it, as they likely agree with the terms, because they can't not agree with them. It would be a disaster for the smaller companies who operate maybe 5-10% of all the digital distribution industry, to say "no we won't accept that".

    Oh dear lord... that looks so freaking good! Guys, remember to find yourself a server with good admin presence and teamwork. It will make large objective based games so much better fun. Pre-load right around the corner and release in sight! YES!
    I'm still thinking about it...

    Holy crap the base jump. One more week.

    destruction was downscaled and rigid in the beta. Full on for retail
    Once everything for a class is unlocked, it’s default weapon becomes available to the other faction
    Back to Karkand will be similar to Vietnam in that it will be a full expansion pack.
    And Flares will be the first unlock for jets in retail.
    Source

    These are all good news to me
