it is ALWAYS this way with their free DLC announcements, and "we will release a ton of DLC"...bah...they never do, and they never will - once we've bought the game, why bother

Man, that sounds bitter - what did DICE do, eat your dog?

anyways - any news of whether this patch will come over to PS3 as well anytime soon? I'm kinda feeling the urge again to play...even though I kinda sold it....

I'm pretty sure the things fixed/changed in this patch were already done on the console quite a while ago.  The PC version has been behind for quite some time.

New patch today:

All Weapons Bronze Insignia requiring an unobtainable bronze star for the tracer dart requirement removed.
Improved Hit registration made through several fixes and some of the hitboxes themselves have been changed. This will increase the accuracy of guns.
Blue box chat window removed
The 2 second immunity when spawning/being revived will now be immediately removed either by firing, zooming, or any movement (move, crouch, jump). A Spawning Player can still orient passively in the Game World..
3D vision fixed.
Fixed slug shotgun zoom crosshair on PC so they better represent the long range accuracy. Crosshairs now close more on PC, similar to consoles.
Reduced slug shotgun hip accuracy to require zooming for consistent long range accuracy. Hip accuracy is now on par with the semi automatic weapons.
Fixed a bug on PC where the G3 would do less damage than intended.
Fixed VADS turning sensitivity on PC so it performs like the ZU23.
Reduced VADS push back and damage to balance it with the ZU23.
Fixed a bug where vehicle countermeasures would fail to remove tracer darts at high speed.
Reduced the reload time for vehicle countermeasures.
Slightly increased the AT4's damage vs armor to emphasize its anti vehicle role while keeping it balanced vs armor.
Increased the AT4s top speed and acceleration so users spend less time exposed when firing.
Increased the AT4's splash damage so it competes with other AT weapons vs infantry. The AT4 still has the least splash damage of all AT weapons.
Reduced the splash damage of the Carl Gustav to bring it in line with other explosive weapons. The Carl Gustav still has the most splash damage of all AT weapons.
Increased the 1 shot kill range of the M95 body shot to counter its lower rate of fire.
Fixed a bug with the SVU that gave it better close range damage than other semi auto weapons.
Reduced all weapon damage to the MCOM by 50%.
Fixed an C4 vs MCOM exploit on Atacama Desert.
Fixed a bug with FOV when aiming the M1911.
Lowered the close range damage of the AN94 to highlight its long range role.
Increased the accuracy of the F2000 on the move to highlight its role as a mobile AR.
Increased the close range damage of the shotguns to give them a greater advantage vs slugs.
Slightly lowered the damage of the M60 to balance its accuracy advantage vs other LMG's.
Slightly lowered the damage of the MG3 at close range to balance it with other high rate of fire weapons.
Slightly increased the damage of the UH60.

has anyone seen a rise in CTD's with the latest patch?  I'm playing the single player portion and it seems that anytime the is a loading screen there is a 50/50 chance of CTD.

No, I haven't had a CTD ever with this game.  I have put in several hours of multiplayer since the patch and was actually playing the single player earlier today and didn't have any problems.

It's OK, but everytime there's a patch I have to restart whatever level I was on.

I can't say that I really followed the story of the single player campaign at all, but the missions were pretty fun.  Certainly more open and less like scripted corridors than the CoD games. 

If you end up getting it, I would at least give the multiplayer a try.  I'm not a huge competitive multiplayer gamer, but I find this really fun.  Besides the great maps, vehicles, destruction, and so on I think they do a good job of rewarding team play and not just solo uber-killer types.

FYI- For preorders, it was released this morning.

This could have easily been a more expensive add-on, it's fantastic.

The atmosphere is completely different and the maps designs play out very differently than the standard BFBC ones. Note that is it multiplayer only.

Kudos to EA for delivering a great add-on for a low price. Activision would have tacked on 3-4 hours of singleplayer and made it a new game.

I had this on the PS3 but I think I might pick it up w/ expansion for the PC during Steam holiday sales.  New video card and no recent multiplayer  FPS  purchases for the PC so I have a void that needs filling!

I am loving this too.  I had to get used to the different look and the new maps are a bit confusing at first but this is a damn fine expansion, especially for the price.

I played a bit Sunday morning... servers were showing me pings, then stopped showing me pings... and I couldn't find a good, populated rush server, and all the populated ones were running the Phu Bai map (in conquest).  Seemed like there's some good game in there, but I got annoyed with the other shit and stopped... I hope the situation improves soon.

I played it for the first time today, and I must say I'm having quite a bit of fun. It's difficult coming back to the game after such a long break, as everyone seems to have progressed to level 40-50 now. I guess it figures that the most fanatic players got the expansion pack first. However I'm still hovering around 1 K/D ratio, so it's tolerable. slywink

Maps seem to be more infantry focussed than vehicle focussed. Most of the buildings are made of flimsy bamboo, so if you take your M60 and go to town you can usually score some fun kills. This also goes for the machinegun on the tank, which feels very powerful. Again they absolutely nailed the sounds. The boats are also quite powerful and I finally managed to get that elusive pin for getting a bunch of kills with a boat. Lastly, the flamer is a fun panic weapon, as it's basically insta-kill and it sets the environment on fire. Spray it around as you're going inside a house and you'll either kill everyone inside or make them run off into the jungle.

Good times. smile

The university was shut down this afternoon due to snow, so I got in a few rounds... server browser ping was working again, got on a decent server... had a pretty good time.

There are some snipers who need to get a life... it's hard to spawn a lot of the time... some maps are far too bottlenecked.

Oh, and I agree the sounds are first rate!

The Relic boys get them selves some Jet ski fun by jumping from one side of a island to the other using nicely times explosions to give added boost while jumping off of ramps.

It works fine in the Netherlands, so it's clearly due to their hatred towards Denmark.

Seen it plenty of times...

Its probably because we used to rule the world, and the other nations are envious of us
