Nice! Dice! But i want NEW maps... than new Modes in existent maps
It will be probably be free so take it for what it is. Besides if you don't play that map in other game modes it's a new map. I only play rush so anything from another game mode is a welcome addition.
No kiddin! Does anyone even play anything other than Rush?
"No kiddin! Does anyone even play anything other than Rush?" Yes, if you ever try another mode you can see the rooms are always full there also. I like to play rush but I also like to change it up once in a while.
I've been playing Rush most of the time but lately I've preferred Conquest. It's the mode that best captures the term 'battlefield' imo. Maps are enormous.
I agree 100% jriquelme. I want some REAL conquest maps, you know, BF2 style.
Rush mode is certainly more intense than conquest.
This is a Mode pack not a map pack. Dice get your crap together and get some new maps. I don't mind paying for them as long as it is new maps not new modes on existing maps.
all i play is conquest. I got really sick of Rush (called Gold Rush in BC1) after playing a couple of hour back when i was playing BC1 closed beta. I didnt buy BC1 until the conquest mode was released and i've only played Rush for 5mins total since i bought BC2.
If you're an XP ho, Conquest is a great mode because you can keep recapping the control points for 50/80pts a pop. The squad based games are fun if you are playing with friends rather than randoms. That said, Rush is my fave! :) This is a great great game totally exceeded my expectations.
its amazing how much ppl complain about free things...this is for everyone complaining, if you want to pay for new maps, then go play some mw2...and as some ppl already pointed out, some ppl dont play all the game modes, so it is at times NEW to those ppl laguna presa was new, there was only one section (or maybe 2 halves of 2 sections)in that rush map that was reused, why complain, it was free on top of that...as long as they remain free, new or old, if its new to that gametype, im gunna welcome it with open arms
OMG shut up! People do not complain about freebies, we are playing these maps a lot and would like to play new maps. We are willing to pay for them. Got it?
another manufactured content pack that is already on the disc...this is so annoying, when will they release actual new content?
It'll be new in the context that you have never played it. It would be nice to get totally new maps that were built from the ground up but getting a new map is getting a new map.
If i have already played the map, i have already played the map regardless if they want to add a new mode to it. That would be like me saying here drive this new 73 fords that's all beat up and rusty. And you would say well that's not new, It'll be new in the context that you have never drove it. See doesn't make sense does it.
Speak2theHand...you do realize that they alter the map to suit the new game mode. So it is a new map configuration, which makes it new and different.
If they gave me that old truck for free, I'd be pretty happy....
Now I see why they decided to make all the dlc free. because it's not even dlc at all. All they do is change some spawn points and vehicle placements and just let you run another gametype on the map. I know when I got the first supposed "map pack" all I had to do was select that I wanted it and it was instantly ready to go, so yea no dlc. I just hope they actually make new content at some point.
Thank you DICE for such a GR8 game!
I am sad to say that I have tried, but simply cannot get into this game. I enjoyed the first title and still play it today. The new graphics are all gamma'd up making it very difficult to see the enemies on the map, the controls don't feel right at all (they wonked up vehicle control), and i just don't get it. Part 1 was instantly accessible. Part 2 is too duty'd up for my taste. Sorry DICE, but this if I wanted Call of Duty, I would have bought call of duty.
how can you compare the 2 really??? how can you say it is COD but it has vehicles and destruction... 2 complete game changers. i like BC1 better as well but number 2 is still my second favourite online shooter behind the first. if you are talking single player then i completely agree and have maybe played about a third of the game before i got over it, but multiplayer is a different beast.
bring out NEW MAPS or at least ALL MAPS ON RUSH !!and i will love you
To be honest nodoze, i never really played the first one, only a demo, but was playing other things at the time, and i never bought it in the end. This i've had day 1, and i think it's excellent. But as others have said, i'd like new maps, different parts etc. Also, i'd like them to open the maps up more. I'd like a CTF style map as well. You know, you pick up the flag and have to reach yours etc, i think it would be fun on the desert map from the sp game, just desert, jeeps, tanks etc, heli's, think it would be a blast. As a side map, i'd like wake.
Not new maps. But it is free.
I'm going to be optimistic and say that it takes 1-2 days at most to convert these maps to the new game mode and then a couple more days for gameplay testing. The maps may even already be made and DICE are just releasing them at staggered intervals to keep attention for the game up. Meanwhile, new maps for the game are in development which will release when they're ready.
i wish they would fix the game before they concentrate on more maps. there are major problems that really affect my gameplay. lack of secondary fire on the tanks in BC1 control mode, thumbsticks are swapped from stationary RPG to stationary machine gun, rendering the RPG useless for me (in southpaw setup). please fix
uggh, I play BF for big games, I wish there was at least 1 rush or conquest map. Give us a NEW conquest map, make it huge, put all kinds of vehicles-choppers, tanks, boats, etc.
squad mode? I don't play those, useless to me
