I'm sort of in a bind ATM. I bought the game digitally so I'm stuck with it, but I know most of you already have premium and will be playing the new maps and CTF mode quite a bit. I really don't want to give EA any more cash due to their inability to resolve these issues we've had, but at the same time I am stuck with the game and do still want to keep playing with everyone.
Do I fork over the cash to get the DLC and just refuse to preorder going forward, or do stand firm?
My experience with BF3 and premium:
1. New DLC comes out 2 weeks early for premium users.
2. 2 weeks later, I buy DLC b/c I didn't buy premium.
3. All my friends are tired with the game modes that are broken or garbage (tank superiority, anyone?)
4. All we play are vanilla/back to karkand maps.
Rinse and repeat with each new DLC.
Aside from assignments and new guns, premium wasn't a great value to me. Of course, if I knew ahead of time that each of the DLCs would be multiplayer based only (the rumor originally was one co-op and one singleplayer), AND/OR they chose any DLC to release other than stupid Cramped Quarters, I probably would've picked up premium.
So use this as your litmus test - after 2 weeks, are your friends still playing the new maps, or are they back to playing vanilla?
