    You'd rather it downloaded when it was released, jamming up the servers and having you wait a few days?

    I've bought the Premium version. It comes as a couple of DVDs (Presumably for the vanilla game) and a code for Premium. Does anyone know how big the expansions are, i.e. how much I'll have to download?

    I'm on a capped download limit, so might have to wait until next month to get the DLC depending on size.

    I thought I had heard it was around that. Presumably I can install it anyway and hold off on downloading some of the DLC or something until next month....

    @the-stax - indeed, you can choose which you want to download. They are all pretty big though

    Yeah there is but can you play online without the updates? I know you couldnt on the 360 version.

    No, you have to patch it, but I'd ignore the premium code for now.

    BTW, when is End Game playable?

    Tried one of the new maps on the ps3 earlier and was surprised to come away feeling the graphics were a bit ropey, never used to feel that way.  PC version spoiling me, like a swimming pool full of ferrerro rocher. 

    Some half wit used the new bike to ride around me in circles while I tried to shoot him, and failed.  Watch out for that humiliating move ;)

    Looking forward to the proper version of end game now.  Aftermath passed me by, will definitely try this one out.

    Have to say, Premium has been a decent success, all bar close quarters. I feel that I got value for money.  Usually I feel raped when purchasing multiplayer add ons.

    I don't mind close quarters. I wouldn't pay money for the map pack separately for it, but it's a nice change of pace sometimes

    Well he's sat watching cbeebies in my bed now, eyes getting heavy, so may get the headphones out and have a blast whilst he's asleep. May just load it up now though if it needs another download.

    Actually, just downloading End Game now (which is 4gb) the file is up to 33gb without this new End Game install. So I'm guessing the final size for the whole Premium version will be 37gb. That's effin ridiculous. Is that the biggest game install ever?

    Aye, the beauty of now having BT Infinity is that its done already. Took 22 mins for 4gb. Not bad at all.

    Holy shag Air Superiority is mental. Shame you have to wait for a plane...only a certain amount allowed in the air. Mind you, I have just unlocked shit loads within two games for planes. Hadn't unlocked anything as they were pretty much useless in other modes unless you've struggled thru and unlocked stuff.
    Will now be able to use planes more in other modes.

    Someone want to tell me the massive, massive download of the game and map packs my poor Virgin broadband is discharging in a trickle of bits through its ruptured bloody anus is going to be well worth the wait?

    I'm losing faith in my rash impulse purchase man.

    Recently got this when Premium Edition was on sale the other week on impulse, having played the 360 version to death and not touched it in 6 months. Its definitely better, but I find most games turn into a choke point massacre with so many players standing at ends of corridors/corners you literally cant move.

    Anyway, why I was really posting was to say "fuck me, the loading time are atrocious through this Battlelog crap". Minutes tick by without any indication the game is going to load and it seems to hang at 'joining server' or something similar. The only way I have found to get around it is to open task manager and right right click BF3 and choose "switch to task", then it loads in straight away. I really shouldn't have to do that though.

    Well you're fucked then, you have no chance of ever getting to the sort of level that allows you to have fun playing multiplayer, you should wait until BF4 comes out instead.

    BTW, you only have to click the BF3 icon on the taskbar if you want to switch to it right away.

    I wouldn't say Im fucked, Im starting to adjust and instead of getting a 1:1 KDR and middling score, Im starting to regularly be in the top third of scoring and 2:1 KDR, save for the unfamiliarity with particular maps that Im not used to being so broad. Im often getting shot from places there would simply never be any people on the console version.

    Im not really interested in emulating the types of people you see with rank 100 circling the map in choppers though, looks really fucking boring.

    Jets and helicopters are pretty much the death of the game.
