fck your nickel and diming of "gold battlepacks". I love Battlefield, but I wish EA had nothing to do with it.
To the wealthy who plan on buying these packs for attachments and weapons, us Battlefield vets will stick kick your ass with skill :)

Read the post. :) It only states, "camos, dogtags, knives" and no actual weapons or attachments. If so, I'm fine with it.

The fact that there are microtransactions pisses me off.

Uuh, it also says
"XP Boosts and more"

So it's not only cosmetic

I'm sick to death of all this micro transactions. I purchased Grid 2 a few months back and it's got a serious game flaw which effects all formats in that it randomly corrupts the user save data. CM still say there's supposed to be a patch to fix it soon but on the other hand there's been lots of DLC packs of which none really work and to add insult the pre-order Indycar track pack has an oval track with no drafting - result you end the race where you started from - it's all just one big con.

Dude. It's just stuff to make you look cool. Like knives and camos and dogtags. Nothing that will improve skill ( unless in 2020 they have optic camouflage lol)

Well, me and my friends screw over activision for that. Oh yea. The whole PREMIUM I got exactly for 3euro 2 days after it got released. I also got these for my friends :). How we got it so cheap? Let's say you can buy downloadable stuff for 360 at some places really cheap, and it's all original no scam ;]. That's what I do when I feel company like activision try to screw customers over. I just hate when they do all this premium crap.

Too bad i pre-ordered this game in a bundle with the PS4 so i wont get this :(
excaliburps  +   351d ago
I'd wager it will come with it since PS4 copies come with China Rising.

You serious? That's great news for me!!

What happened to just playing the game to unlock things?
Lwhit6  +   351d ago
Greed.
dcj0524  +   351d ago
You still can. This is just extra stuff. For show.

Look at all those crappy smartphone games ... Great way to make money ... Ill just rank up the old fashioned way... Skill

Everything in the battle packs can be unlocked regularly. TF2 does the same thing, yet because EA does it people start whining.

Battle packs range from bronze, silver and gold. They contain items (including weapons) that can be unlocked in-game but are completely random.

Almost the same thing as with Mass Effect 3's multiplayer, where you unlocked new gear, weapons and classes using credits earned from matches. This semms better by being customization options only.

Never played a proper battlefield game where it hasn't been worth ranking up in. That's the difference between this and Cod. This gives you value for your money and time put in where as Cod always feels the same.

As long as its not weapons or attachments then I'm all game for it.

But if it gives weapons and attachments insert frowny face ------------>

So its getting to a point where you buy the game and its like bare bones free to play lol the bf series used to seem even now max rank destroys everything you have a toothpick they have a nuke.

You could level up to 1st colonel in 20h so who cares if you get guns from batllebags, if everyone gets all guns in first month anyway?
