But wait! There's more...
Another 4.2Gb download appears today.
WTF can take 10Gb worth of downloads?

I thought I had an appetite for destruction, but all I wanted was a club sandwich.

Sheesh, just discovered that as well!

Motorbikes I suppose... No wonder the servers weren't all full.

Well the motorbikes certainly are a quick way to get around the map. Mind you I could have walked across the map many times by the time the frikin update downloaded.

Well at least yours downloaded - for some reason my extra 4 gig didnt trigger which I didnt figure out until it was bedtime for me. What is the CTF mode like?

I thought it would be more interesting. To me it just seemed to be a picture of the sky with the visual image of a motorbike wheel implanted in my face.

I only had time for part of one game, but I have learnt not to go on long walks through open fields when there are dirt bike riders around.

Motorbikes are easy prey for engineers with Javelins... or in fact, anything else in the game. However, I love the GTA style unique jumps.
Lost two games, but only lost the 2nd one after nearly having a 3-1 lead because the dickhead holding the flag didn't take it to ours, but his inside our HQ, then half my team suddenly quit or were disconnected and we got swamped by the other side

I just jumped in quickly to check it would load and didn't need to download anymore updates.

Hoping to get some time in tonight to try it out properly

Premium player double XP weekend (72 hours) starts tonight at 7pm UTC+1000/summer time (i.e. here), a good time to get into End Game.

I had a few games last night. Wonderful new maps to learn :(

I held my own. Didn't do brilliantly but didn't get owned. With a double XP event though I think I'll gave to make an effort.

CTF really needs coordinated team effort. Too many people running around lone wolf and the flag never moves from either base. Only when a team of guys (on the other side unfortunately) came on the server you could tell they were working together and kept out base totally locked down. Even then they still didn't manage to get the flag.

Jumped on the other night - not bad but not great. Main problem I found was a lot of the maps have wide open spaces so if the other team has a good chopper pilot you are toast.

That was a fun couple of games last night on CTF - I must have taken down at 6 choppers with the SAM which was a nice reversal of fortune. Playing a few game of CTF now I have found that if the other team has a decent chopper pilot you need anti air if you are ever going to have a chance.
