No, i have a high quota. But i didnt see anywhere that let you buy a dvd copy plus a digital copy.

Is it a trustable site?

I know it doesnt seem like much money, but i dont exactly wanna be conned out of 40-50$

Its more of a back up solution. Easier to install from a DVD then have to redownload it and install it


Its out of stock anyway

I think i'll just get it locally on dvd. Make it much simpler

Yeah, a few members from here used it to buy bf3. The owner/operator is a member on here to I believe.

re: the DVD's, the version you re install off the disc will be potentially a huge number of versions out of date and make the process pointless anyway.

im actually starting to really enjoy Metro, the total mayhem is kinda fun. i usually just go support, try set up a solid position and deploy bipod and try last as long as i can.

definitely need to play on the no rockets/nade launcher servers though. i dont mind it but sometimes its a bit too stupid.

Anyone else having issues with the new battlelog update and chrome? Installed plugin for the third time now, with a hard lock, and two fresh restarts in between. Any ideas?

I thought battle"field" was supposed to have you know a "field". Might as well buy COD.

Unfortunately, there is many metro padders which makes these types of maps so popular. It just doesn't have the BF feel and shouldn't be in the game.

I have played Metro about 8 times and one of them included 51 grenade kills out of my 99 total. It's just pointless spam there is no skill involved.

PS. Pretty sure my highest score was on Metro :P

I'd like to say that these maps look potentially decent. The rooftop one seems like it could be well fun and they seem to open more options for flanking than Metro.

Exactly right

Ugh

So why go small when the series is best known for going big? Bach says the popularity of more narrow maps like Operation Metro was the motivating factor. Since hardcore fans got their wish with several revamped Battlefield 2 fans in Back to Karkand, DICE believed it made sense to cater to the close quarters crowd with the next four-map expansion.
Fuck, people only play op metro because its faster xp you twats.. It would be the same if you could explosive spam on another map, then that map would be popular..

ARGH

Default Remember original Karkand?

Smaller versions of Karkand on BF2 especially infantry only was HUGELY based on Nade spamming at the start? People played those maps for quick kills, whereas those who prefered the bigger maps stuck with maps like Sharqi and Dragon Valley.

I don't think I will buy it at first, if at all. But it does put you at a disadvantage because you don't have access to the new guns.(If they turn out to have good stats.)
