Did you install the new AMD drivers that came out today?

After playing the beta I really enjoyed it but I am not going to preorder because this really feels like an expansion pack to BF3.

Also they are doing the BF premium BS again.

I'll be getting it. I like it. It feels a LOT smoother than BF3 does. Much more polished.

Plus, I've already elaborated my opinion on the cost/fun ratio. If I pay a total of $120 for the game (original game + all expansion packs) and play 200 hours, I'm looking at 60c per hour of fun. I have no doubt I will spend 200hrs on this game.

Played again tonight, after installing the NVIDIA Beta drivers, and now there's smoke/haze? Wasn't there this morning.

It also seems far laggier tonight than this morning too, maybe because more people are playing now, or maybe it was just the server.

I don't exactly agree with paying $120 for a game, but yes you are correct in that it's still the "cheapest" form of entertainment I can have, so that's good enough justification. I'll likely wait until Premium goes on sale though, don't think I'll pay full price.

If it's $97 with Premium, there's no discount on Premium because it's $50 to begin with.

I had only a short time yesterday. Did some close quarters work on the Siege of Shangai map, and then did a little tank work on some other map...not sure which. The tank i was in turns much quicker than tanks in BF3...they're also faster... Loving the graphics, too.

I was getting maybe a 1.5 K/D ratio...not exactly good, but I suppose not bad for a completely new UI.
