Looking forward to seeing how bad they fuck this up. Servers will likely be down all weekend as soon as they flip the double XP lightswich on the way out of the office.

there are no servers its all user hosted. so chances are more people playing = better connection

I love it how they put Sydney's at "23:59" just to make it that it starts and ends on the same day xD Really its 00:00 the following days :p

Figures I'll be away this weekend. Who am i kidding though, I never play the MP anyways.

This is perfect timing. Getting your character from level 30-50 is a little struggle, this will help out a lot. I know what I am doing on my weekend.

The double xp is nice played a few games tonight got about 120k in 3 games which was nice. The only thing that bugs me is that peopel still dont play the objective -sigh- Guess you can never justify Randy actions

if multiplayer wasn't so laggy and had such a host advantage I would definitely play this more on line. just played 3 games and hit reg. was horrible. You could tell that the other team had the host. shooting them would take a full clip, while them shooting us would take 4-5 bullets. and it was not just me but my teammates were also experiencing this.

I've played about 20 games in the last day and I've lost all of them, for some reason I can never seem to get a team that is capable of tying their own shoelace together. This MP is the best/worst I've ever played, I love the idea but so many idiots play and its so poorly implemented I want to just smash my controller to bits.

I was surprised that I didnt have near as many discnnects or laggy games yesterday, all went pretty smoothly. In about 4 hours or so I went from 38 scout to 46, which is freaking fantastic. Too abd i can't play today, but atleast there will be one more day to get to 50!

And it is sad that people still dont play the objective. For the first hour, you get 1500 per objective in conflict. 1500 for hacks, 600 per intel assist. How does that not outweigh your ever so important "kd"?

That's what I thought but it's stopped every server I go In to, kinda gutted so close to level 50.

No, it's still on. I'm getting 150 per kill with a 300 bonus from cover.

Sniff...I will miss you so much double xp weekend. You made this game actually worth playing.

In just 1 day I went from level 32 rifleman to level 50 rifleman. Still kinda sucks that there weren't that many unlocks be it more types of guns/head gear/equipment etc.....

though i had the game since launch, i hadn't played it.

because of this xp weekend i decided to play MP. Was able to get the 3 classes above 10. Cant say im a huge fan of MP, so may have to wait for the next XP event to get to 50.

I have started playing the campaign and like it much more that MP.
