Battlefield: Bad Company 2 has had yet another VIP Map Pack go live for owners of the new game or those in possession of a VIP code.
i dont play those modes.. ugh.. gimme vietnam naooooo!
so EA/DICE is mocking you buy unlocking what you already have along 6 month, yet you ask to pay for more has they didn't give you ANYTHING? Sad I think
i play those modes..its more tactical than rush or conquest by far. but still these arent map packs, they are mode packs. and i agree i want Vietnam!!
-but OMG! that map (Panama Canal) is so cool for squad Death match, just played a game of it and wow it was amazing... Wish they could extend it and use it for a rush map - playing rush on that would be awesome.. just needs to be a little longer for rush.. but it's an awesome map. -should have been out day one for all these modes they are calling VIP DLC, when it's not. Not Really -you can't call it DLC when it's been on the disk since day one.. Especially when you didn't really do anything but add the mode.. that's not VIP that L.A.M.E.. -and yeah that Vietnam expansion pack should be amazing, can't wait.. .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
give me remakes of the maps from bc1 and ill be happy. ill even pay for them.
They need to stop calling it that..
It should be called NEW MODE... because that's all it is.. -would have been really awesome if they would have actually made some new maps.. that would have been amazing.
I love the game, but for the love of God, Dice make some new maps please!!!!!! Bring on Vietnam already. Can't wait.
How they decided to call this a map pack is beyond me
Yup, they definitely aren't map packs. I often wonder if EA are trying to insult us gamer's intelligence.
Really EA sucks. What like 8 maps for the game? Keeping calling everything a map pack when you havent added a new map yet. This is why nobody plays this. Atleast mw2 adds maps and came out of the box with more. Another reason why this games barely in the top 10 on 360. Better game then mw2 but no support by the time the new maps do come everyones already done playing this game.
everyday on this fucking website people bitching and moaning. They are not costing you anything above the price you paid for the game. The Vietnam expansion pack will have new maps and weapons, but I'm sure when that comes out people will bitch and moan about that. Plenty of folks play this game everyday and have tons of fun with it, above we have someone applauding MW2 for releasing there overpriced maps. I have more fun with the staggered releases of BC:BF2 unlocked modes and maps than I do with MW2 any day. So if you dont like the fact that they have attempted to keep the multiplayer fresh without raping our wallets then go pay 30.00 on top of the 60.00 and play MW2. fucking people.
If you bought the game used or new after launch, you DO have to pay to get these new modes. There is a $10 charge to obtain "VIP" status. So, in essence, after launch you have to pay $10 extra to get the new modes. That is totally something to "b*tch and moan" about.
but I'll follow you here is gamestops site: http://www.gamestop.com/bro... a new copy is 39.99 and a used copy is 34.99, so the informed person knows to buy new in this case. Lets say your uninformed and you buy used and then have to pay the 10.00 for VIP access, that makes it 44.99. Still cheaper than when I purchased it day one in either scenario. also all new copies have free access to the VIP maps and modes (so your mistaken in your post on that point), its only used copies that require 10.00 for VIP access, and in either scenario its still less than the 59.99 I paid and still less than getting MW2 and all the maps. "As part of a program designed to encourage game purchases and reward the community, EA and DICE have confirmed that they will periodically release additional "VIP" content for Bad Company 2. On Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, this content will be available free to "VIP" players who purchased a new copy of the game. Owners of used copies will be able to purchase a VIP code for an additional cost from the respective system's online store." http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... also if your so itching to pay for something they have you covered with the Vietnam expansion. so in all the scenarios the only folks ripping anybody off is gamestop, if you consider taking advantage of uninformed consumers to be a ripoff. so again stop complaining because so far the price to play BF:BC2 up to this point has gone down no matter if you buy new or used. DICE has provided us with a fun and quality game and has kept the multiplayer fresh while at the same time not raping us with overpriced dlc. In the current gaming climate I feel they have found an elegant solution, and I appreciate that.
Limited edition was free with pre-order/launch... The VIP comes with all new copies. As far as you telling us to "stop complaining", I'm going to tell YOU to stop complaining about our complaining. Pot, meet Kettle... Buying a USED game should get you the EXACT SAME GAME as buying new... End of story.
and i have every right to call you on it I disproved your reason to bitch and moan and all you have left is to tell me to stop complaining about complaining? how about using reason and logic to refute my point instead excusing yourself with cliches.
I said "my bad" on the VIP in new copies. I owned it. This isn't "reason and logic" enough for you? "Buying a USED game should get you the EXACT SAME GAME as buying new... End of story." BFBC:2 (as well as any game...) should be the SAME game whether it's bought new or used. Logical right?
This is a better game than MW2 by far, but they haven't supported the game from the day it was released, everything has been on autopilot wit these vip map packs, I love BF but I think this will probbly be the last game I buy from DICE, they just do not show support for their own product.
DLC disc locked connect. We know what you did DICE.
