Should I thank everyone who actually shared this on their Facebook since I will not be doing likewise??? Silly Facebook. I'm waiting for EA to acquire Facebook as well and host it from shitty servers too...

i think its a maximum of 72 extra hours from facebook and 48 hours from twitter, so id say yes?



UPDATE:



same goes for twitter, the more retweets the more chance of more double xp.

maybe we get 48 hours extra form twitter and 72 hours extra from facebook.

-stay tuned. i will post the times and length of double xp when it is available.
As of now:

Twitter:there has been 5000 retweets which is 48 hours, as it says unlock up to 48 hours.

Facebook: 20,000 shares, so another 48 hours of double xp.

my time zone is GMT so i dont know if there is still chance for more double xp or if it has ran out.

the original 48 hours, plus 48 from twitter plus 48 from facebook = 144 hours (which is 6 days) so basically its a double xp week

Hmm. I don't play all that often now that I'm playing in two Indoor Soccer Leagues, but I think that given a week, that I can rank up 10 or so times...

Another good method is triggering the objective and then backing away. As long as it is blinking the person will still trigger the C4 then you can take the objective and still have a grenade.

Also I noticed on Battlelog that it says Double Xp is now active. I am not sure if it is true but I am about to find out.

No, not at all. I find a wasted grenade is one that you don't use. If there is C4 on the objective and you end up blowing it up with a grenade you could have just saved yourself and teamates lives. And if you really think that's a wasted grenade than use the grenade specialization.

well then youve wasted half of your grandes..

look the point is, me and my friend dont like c4 so we dont allow it. wether it kills us or not its still an annoyance to throw a grenade and wait for it to go boomboom, or to run into the capture zone and run out.

Been away on holiday and thought I'd missed the event, so absolutely delighted to come back and see this post saying the double XP will run until Friday! Will get right back into battlefield later on!
