I here ya! But if you stray too far from your norm, you won't recall the same with your studies. Brain breaks!

Pretty cool for them to make for everyone. Well, I think I'm scheduling Battlefield for one specific time...

Double XP? Not everyone has reached 100 col yet? The game's been out well over a year now :O

Almost 2 years, but no, to reach 100 colonel you would have to put serious time in. I am colonel 10 with 144 hours.

Not everyone plays Battlefield all the time. I'm 23 Colonel ATM and not in a hurry to level up. Sadly actually PTFO does not result in as many points as run'n gunning in CQC.

I'm at 90 on Xbox, I stopped for a while and have picked it up a bit since then. Hopefully I'll get it during the double xp period. Was wondering when they'd do this.

What? PTO doesn't get you points? What game mode? I play a ton load of CQ, not CQC, and I play the objective.

People need to remember it's not only objective that nets you points. My main class was Engineer, and did my job, destroying vehicles. People need to play their role.

I agree that playing Recon won't net you a whole lot of points though, but other classes, yeah, depending on the map.

Playing recon can actually get you a lot of points. Put down a spawn beacon and either a MAV or the T-UGS and then you'll start getting points left and right. I usually play CQ and put it near a capture point and net myself quite a few points and ribbons. I don't normally use a sniper rifle either though. Usually the UMP45 on CQ maps.

I got it at launch, own every DLC, and am less than level 10 Colonel

What is the point in leveling up after you unlock the weapons? Seems rather pointless, like the rank in Gears of War.

Just for respect.

I have stopped playing due to the fact that Australians only play conquest on the Xbox. Rush mode works infinitely better for consoles given the player count as it keeps the action all in one place. Conquest is a ghost town. New DLC comes out and every time there is no Rush servers going ever. I wasted money on the premium account because no one plays the new maps.

Loved this game, just frustrating to even turn it on and have a look at the available servers, or lack of.
