BF3 Back to Karkand Release Dates

The Battlefield Blog has release dates for the Back to Karkand expansion for Battlefield 3. Word is the add-on will come for the PlayStation 3 on December 6th, and on December 13th for Windows PC and Xbox 360. Word is: "If you pre-ordered Battlefield 3: Limited Edition, you will receive this expansion pack at no extra charge. Anyone else can buy it through the in-game store (on consoles), PlayStation Store (PS3), Xbox Live Marketplace (Xbox 360), or on Origin (PC). Come back next week for more epic gameplay footage from Back to Karkand, and have a great gaming weekend!"

Stuff about maps

I can't disagree with most of your statement but just a few points:

- this game only has 9 maps, some of them not so great. It needs more.
- Expansion packs have been an FPS thing for a long time, even before the BF series itself. Heck even BF1942 had expansions for example.
- Server admins can decide how to structure their rotation to allow for people to get an uninterrupted experience. Dice shouldn't be the ones making that decision, there are pros and cons to both approaches.

I sympathize with your position but in this case EA was upfront from the beginning about the BtK stuff being a bonus for preorders. It sucks if you waited for after release but it's the modern publisher method of making money in a world filled with cheap regional keys and used sales on the console side of things.
