Yes if there making a change in there policy of DLC in future games and tryin to make a change in the industry Then yes.
We have to put stop to this cheap [email protected] DLC start pushing for real expansions at half the cost of a game like we once used to see.

What the game calls DLC other games call free updates. DLC should be more like, I dunno, a short side-campaign where you play as a demon and see the world from their perspective. Or a continuation of the story.

It definitely was if it pushes more people to pick up the game

Well, there's also the free weekend and the $15 sale.

Well, I wasn't going to pick it up, and now I will.

It's great. Do it.
Single player is outstanding, MP is much better with all the dlc.

When DLC comes out, it fks up the community.

Servers start supporting all maps, and if you don't have you get booted out.

Happened on BF4 on servers I played on.

All free now.

New Maps for any MP game should be free.

Only SP add-ons should cost.

Well said. Nice to see a good comment on here, it's a rarity. DLC totally screws up MP games, it should be reserved for SP. It's part of the reason I haven't picked up a MP game in ages.

It really is a pain in the ass when paid maps split the community. I was really enjoying BF1 operations, but since the new maps landed I couldn't get into a game anymore and haven't bothered going back to it in months now.

Free premium for the week

Free premium on BF1?? What date does the free week start from?? I'm so close to buying the maps as I was loving the operations. I won't get a chance to jump back on the PS4 until Thursday.
