A new screenshot of Battlefield 3 Close Quarters show just how small the map is.
Well, the map lives up to the CQC name. Not really my ideal image of a Battlefield map, but oh well. I'm pretty sure I'll be skipping the CQC pack all together. I know a lot of gamers enjoy that aspect of BF3, but I'm more geared towards maps that are actual "battlefields" in a sense. Maps that encompass all the fun aspects of Battlefield and not just 1 playstyle. The theme idea is pretty cool, but I don't see why they just can't put together some awesome, expansive battlefield maps instead of themed packs that enhance one aspect/area of the game. My Battlefield playstyle isn't geared towards CQC so it sort alienates me and what I want out of the game. Still interested, but not enthused. What I really want to know is, what is the theme for the End Game DLC? That one sounds the most interesting.
What is this Call of Duty? I wanted BIGGER maps and they went the other way! I'll be glad when Planetside 2 and Arma III are released.
Cmon man, its a map with an opportunity to work on your weapons skills etc. Also the environments will be 100% destructible. I just have one request for DICE: NO FRAG ROUNDS! However, I do agree with you. This is not what BF is about. And i do hope the next map pack comes with a map like air superiority in BF 1943
its just 1 map dude calm down
Guys if you look closely enough you would realize that this is Team Deathmatch and we all know how they cut out portions of the map.
You're right. Didn't really pay attention to that the first time around. Well, I don't play TDM on BF3 so I guess the map doesn't apply to me.
Grenade launchers, RPG's, claymores, and the wonky prone position that Bf3 uses is just the perfect recipe for disaster when applied to a map THAT small. Oh mercy, what are you thinking DICE? Then you make us wait until JUNE just for this crap? And we wont be seeing the All Vehicles mode (forgot the name) until Fall (hopefully). Oh boy.... Rainbow Six Patriots and Ghost Recon Future Soldier (And Uncharted 3 online/Gears of War 3 online) look better already. Dust 514 will be free to play too on psn. That's where I'll be at. And Halo 4 coming for 360. Peace out DICE. Might check you out again in 2013, but by then the BF3 community might not have survived the onslaught of so many other awesome 2012 games coming out like GTA 5 (which confirmed online) and resident Evil 6 (not to mention the other games that I already referenced above)...
Wow,a few explosives will kill each round off pretty fast / easy. I don't understand why this stuff is included on BF3.dumb.
People using USAS 12 with frag rounds are going to own this map.
Usas is now nerfed. People with the Mk3a1 like me could rape this map. Also do you think pc players can set player count to 64 on this map?
I hate people like you.
You people are ruining BF3
Frag rounds in general were overall unneeded, so agreed. Support class with any shotgun plus claymores is going to be hell. I'll be passing on that map pack lol
*I guess the new vehicles will include office chairs and mail carts.* Lmfao this made me burst out during class right now and everyone looking at me all wierd xD.
I have no idea how there going to do this, i can remember playing in a 64 player tdm on a map that was obviously only meant for 24 or less and it was manic, laggy as hell how well you did was not dependent on skill but luck. It was the map with the cargo crates and large building you can go inside and its by the sea. However it was fun as hell.
This would be fun and crazy.. Im glad theyre giving us all sorts of different themes of war. I cant wait to see the largest bf map in the next dlc, and endgame sounds very interesting. I have a feeling it will be some sort of co op thing? Anyway, ill be sure to get them. Cant go wrong with more unlocks, especially when u have nothing to unlock atm!
this eliminates camping snipers entirely. Here I come campers! I'm gonna blow right through the wall and take your tags! http://www.youtube.com/watc... Also, it's an 8v8 game type that I think will be exclusive to the pack.
Can't wait. I love Operation Slaughtro in CQ.
i have noticed that CQC does not work well if your playing ps3 version of battlefield 3 i don't know about the other versions
Input lag, the PS3 version is plagued by it. Apparently it's your TV's fault which is strange as I'm pretty sure other games on PS3 don't have this same issue (Killzone don't count as it's apparently in there by design). 360 & PC versions don't have this issue, DICE's Frostbite 2 engine just suck's on PS3.
That is kinda wierd all my other games work fine so i know it's not my TV sounds kinda silly too "well the problem is in your TV" when i know that it's not. They just cant admit that they screwed that part of the game insted they blame it's from our TV's so that they don't get any complains from us about the game. Typical
RIP Battlefield 1942-2142
The only way and I repeat, THE ONLY WAY this can work is if they make it PISTOLS Only ( NO MAGNUM ) . Other than that this will be an eff festival of epic proportions.
Darn, I was hoping for snow/forest maps. :(
sigh. back to halo I go until they actually release some decent maps. thanks a lot, dice. you ruined it for me. I wish they would release Modding tools for the PC. that way, the game would be a million times better than it is today. but nope, its "too complex". yeah whatever. F off, dice.
You got COD all over my Battlefield...
I enjoy CQB. When I'm playing without friends I love TDM. It's only with my clan or a few friends that I jump into an OBJ based mode. Randoms in OBJ modes is Hellish, honestly.
I want modding tools! Come on dice, stop letting EA rule you...
what is this b.s and to maker matters worst they're going to release it come june... Like BF3 is now dead, this is pathetic.. So much for their "AMAZING DLC PLAN".. FU EA/DICE. Bunch of douchebags for lying to the community and making the game into COD.
I don't this as a bad sign at all. DICE did mention that they wanted Battlefield 3 to be friendly to all kinds of players. Besides, after this the "Armored Kill" pack which should have larger and more traditional Battlefield maps. I'll skip "Close Quarters" and get the "Armored Kill" pack.
~Is this for cod babies?
watch the idiot USAS12 frag noobs just play this map over and over
rip battlefield. you had a good run but now you're dead
I love the shear scale of battlefield with its choice of vehicles but I think this dlc will be a good thing,its time battlefield had every option available be it the size of maps ect. U can curtainly say that battlefield 3 will cater for all which is a good thing.im wondering if itll be free for the people that got the b2k maps aswell.
