    Another regular Thursday on Battlefield 3.

    Map rotation will be set to standard + Karkand maps as usual. If ALL non-Premium members have purchased Armored Kill (which is out on Tuesday) then we may switch to an Armored Kill rotation for them, otherwise we'll stick with standard + Karkand so that no-one is excluded.

    Do note that some folk may receive Borderlands 2 a day early so they may end up playing that, though I'll set up an event for that on Friday.

    Well my copy of Borderlands 2 has been dispatched by first class post, so 'should' be with me tomorrow.

    But if my wife gets her wish, which is that since i've took the day off work, my parcel doesn't arrive and the electric goes off and the weather is too shitty to go outside and do anything....then I won't be on at all.


    Chuck me an invite if you're low on numbers and i'll probably jump over for a bit since i've got all day tomorrow to play it.

    I've really enjoyed the last couple of nights on BF3, so I imagine I'll be there.

    Will any non-Premium members be joining us? If so the server is currently set to standard + Karkand maps so they should be fine. If there are only Premium members playing, we could switch to the rotation which adds the Armored Kill maps in?

    I don't want to ruin your fun, but I'd love to join you without AK.
    I've bought Karkand (no brainer), but is AK worth the money?

    To be honest I'm disappointed with AK. The conquest maps are ok but a bit empty even with 24 players. King of the hill / tank whatever is basically a game of who gets spawn lock first and Rush is ruined by the inclusion of the Gunship raping the attacking force.

    Playing standard plus karkand isn't going to ruin anyone's fun so we'll see you there. :thumbup:

    I like AK, but it has too many issues at the moment, the Tank Supremacy mode is broken and the Rush mode is very one sided.

    I'd say it's almost as much a waste of money as Close Quarters, but at least you can just stick the odd AK conquest in a normal mix of maps.

    Premium is worth it IMO, but none of the individual map maps have been anything to write home about, including Karkand.

    I love the 4 new maps on AK , if you stick to conquest. Rush is fine if you are attacking, but no fun for defenders. Havent played enough Tank Conquest, Quite liked the games i've been on as I've been on the wining sides more often than the losing one .
    I wouldn't recomend you buy it though, if you are just playing with us as I think we'll be playing less and less Batlefield as newer games are coming out every few weeks that will be catching our gaming time more and more.

    New games maybe coming out but BF3 isn't going to die. Thursdays will still be the day for organised games and there are a good number not getting Borderlands who play on other nights. I'm an example of someone who doesn't play BF 24/7 as I mix it up with Killzone and other random titles.

    The Gunship delay and re spawn time might help balance rush, but I think the defenders should have it.

    I suppose i'm getting a bict sick of battlefield not working at peak times for me. I'm going to change my router back (again) today and see if the rush game works better
    After I left Killzone last night, tried to get into a Battlefield game and was getting the same old laggy lock up problems. Ended up watching Love Actually on the telly.

    Good choice, Love Actually is a very good film :)

    Good to see that they have made these changes to rush. That gunship was a right PITA.
