I am thinking about getting Battlefield 3 Premium from here for $33: http://play-sc.com/Battlefield-3-Premium-Service-PC-Download-Origin.html

I am just wondering if this is worth it. I have spent $120 on this game already because I got it on PS3 and then later got it for PC for better controls, more players, etc. I am just afraid of wasting more money on this game.

My biggest concern is if the severs (esp. with DLC maps) will die. I am already noticing that there are not as many good servers as there used to be. I am afraid that once Battlefield 4 (even though at least a year from now) will kill the Battlefield 3 servers.

Thank you for all responses.

I love that fact. BC2 was a great game. Loved Vietnam. About the OP though. Im not sure. From what I understand its mainly for BF3. I cant imagine you would get content for BF4 with just that one time fee. lol Unless EA is feeling generous. But you know EA is a cash whore with no self respect. Ill probably be sticking with BF3 for a long time.

I don't know if this is true, but I heard someone say that the BF:BC 2 Vietnam servers are almost completely dead. Do you guys think this will happen with BF3 expansion?

BC2 is fairly old. I see the server population really diluted every time a new dlc comes out, CQ dlc only have 1-2 reliable servers for me to go to as oppose to ~6 or more during launch. I do think the following will still be okay after bf4 for at least another year and if you like metro (lol) than there always be server for those, and the last I check the core game was doing fine too.

You should buy the entire pack bf3 + premium for ~$30, don't pay more than that since is on sale a lot especially on greenmangaming. With that in mind you should ask yourself is that worth it for months to maybe 2 year worth of play.

Every map pack died when a newer one got released as will the game when BF 4 gets released "soon", just as BC 2 died when BF 3 got released, mediocre games get forgotten when sequels get released, that's why BF 2 still has lots of players, that's from the time DICE made good games.

Naw, the search engine and filter are f'ed. There are a lot more players than you may think/see.

I have always wondered that myself. I sometimes see a server with around 64 players, refresh, and then it's not listed.

I would say it will be good for 4-5 months, until BF4 comes out at the most.

Once BF4 comes out, there will still be servers, but they won't be nearly as populated.

At this point in time it's a very worthwhile purchase. The game isn't going to drop-off too hard before Battlefield 4 comes out, which isn't for another few months anyways.

For months to come, then BF4 will reduce it's community but people will still play it, and then a year after BF4 later it'll decline evne more.
