Default Re: BF3: Back to Karkand Gameplay Premiere Trailer is live!!!

I spent most of my BF2 play time on Wake, Karkand and Sharqi. I want, and I want NOW!

As good as BF3 is, the maps just don't seem as great as BF2's.

Metro and Damavand Peak are horrible maps--especially in conquest. Massive choke points. Will be glad to see some of the old maps return.

Metro is a map designed by a crack head for sure. I mean WTF sniper vantage points in the Russian spawn point that allows for the most epic spawn rape I've ever seen (I know the RU team usually wins this map but thanks to the fact that the US team outnumbered the RU team 2-1 they were very easily able to capture all spawn points within the first 5 minutes)

Metro is a good Rush map (not great, but not all that bad either). But for Conquest... Well, if you're on the US team, I hope you have some lube.

so it is unbalanced

surely dice saw how unpopular it was in the beta, they should have replaced it with a much better map, i hate it when im having fun on a server then it loads metro!

we have a hardcore, 32 player conquest server. we have actually took metro out of the map rotation.

I actually tried to get damavand taken out too but lost the vote on that one.

Damavand is a little more balanced than Metro, but it's a grinder for sure. Whoever takes the middle point and holds it first is likely to win.

No matter what anyone says, Online Multiplayer doesn't get any better than this. God I love Battlefield.
