DICE announces Wake Island Dog Tag Challenge

Fancy a bit of friendly competition between gaming platforms? Assuming you're playing Battlefield 3, competition is probably right up your alley anyway.

DICE has issued a challenge for Battlefield 3 players to play 19,420 rounds of BF3 on Wake Island. The challenge started yesterday at 5:00 pm CET, and DICE is tallying up the round count based on platform. PC, 360, and PS3 players will all be competing against one another. The prize for first place is a special dog tag usable only once the challenge has been completed. It will be unlocked for everyone eventually, but the faster your platform of choice completes DICE's task, the sooner you will be able to use the new dog tag pictured below. (Battlefield 3, Dice, EA, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

These challenges are dumb. Not all platforms have the same amount of players and on the 360 there isn't a single Wake Island server up.

All the little kiddies play is Oman/Caspian or the AK map pack.

Which is a shame because Wake on BF3 is one of the better maps. Good luck with this challenge. I won't be participating.

So you won't play on any server that has Wake Island? lol

This challenge literally has no affect on anybody. You might just see more Wake Island servers but thats about it

Reply to your other comments on assassins creed 3. If your looking for proof of connor fighting the colonials look at the anvil next trailer it shows connor killing two colonial soldiers with a musket then assassinating another one. the narrorator even points that out. thank you for your time.

P.S. if you want instant awnsers look at about 2:28

Just do a search for it and you'll find it. Also try that day 2 game mode (its called something like that) where they have 5 flags on wake island.

This prize is not really worth winning...

how is it not worth winning when it's free?

Most prizes are free by default...and this is just a dog tag, which is pretty pointless.
