I keep getting "page not found".

@Mister_V It's working now.

OT:It never hurts to have a little variety but i understand why some people would get mad BF is known for large map and huge battles and no cramped up gameplay.

Mister_V2439d ago

Should be working now. We've had this strange issue a couple times :S Sorry bout it.

Does anyone know how Close Quarters will differ from standard TDM matches?

chriski3332438d ago

Well not sure how I feel about close quarters in bf3 but I know for sure there shall be many campers to shoot down

The only reason why Op Metro was popular was because it was easy to level up and get points on. A lot of boosters used that map also, but in "Battlefield" terms, it's the worst map.

Also, I hope they have a new gametype for the DLC, I don't want to just play TDM on the new maps. At least have a Search and Destroy type of game mode so people won't camp in the maps.

Ace_Pheonix2439d ago

umm... you mean Rush? Yeah, I imagine Rush will be in there.

Hufandpuf2439d ago

Rush maps tend to be big so I doubt rush would work in these environments. It'll be 8v8 so I would like the game mode to be very competitive. almost counter strike-like

Ace_Pheonix2438d ago

Have you played Squad Rush? That's 4 on 4 in a small environment and it works just fine. I'm sure it can be scaled without any real issues.

I like all types of maps for all sorts of reasons. I LOVE OP Metro because it has some of the best shoot-outs I've seen in any FPS ever (no I'm not new to games.), so please don't act like the only reason people play it is to grind.

The comparisons to COD, that some people make, are just ignorant. BF3 would play completely different even if it was on an exact replica of a COD map.

Besides who cares? Likely the people that complain most are the ones who play COD with their friends just as much as BF3, but for people like me who only play BF3, I can't complain with getting as much variety as possible in the gameplay experiences.

and of course:
“ If you only play vehicles, Armored Kill is coming.”

Maybe they can add in gamemodes like Search and Destroy for the CQ maps.

moparmogul2438d ago (Edited 2438d ago )

Nope. The lack of respawns is what sets game/modes like Search&Destroy and CS apart. Without it, there is no incentive to not act like a jackass. No punishment for playing recklessly.

KeiserSosay47882439d ago

The ONLY reason the stats show this, DICE, is because you can get MASSIVE points and level up a few times in ONE match. It's complete bull that in a Battlefield game in which teamwork is "essential", this gametype and map combo rewards players for running, shooting, and dying. What's even more ridiculous is that these players are rewarded MORE POINTS than their team playing counterparts on other, less chaotic, maps.

Slugg3r2439d ago

This, and you can also easily up your K/D ratio in operation metro, because of all those medics running around and reviving you. Because of this almost everyone ends up getting more kills than deaths.
