    Battlefield 3 Double XP Weekend Begins Saturday



    For the first time ever, DICE will be hosting a double XP weekend for
    Battlefield 3. During the event, XP gains for all multiplayer maps and modes will be doubled.

    In order to participate in the double XP weekend, just play online in any ranked match. Your bonus XP will be doled out at the end of the match as "additional points." In other words, you'll miss out on these rewards if you decide to ragequit halfway through a match.

    It's hard to believe that the game hasn't had a double XP weekend yet. These events seems like an easy way to spur player activity. I'm not sure what's involved in "turning up the XP," though. It's probably trivial enough on PC but with consoles you probably have to get approval from Microsoft or Sony.

    Doubling XP for the weekend shouldn't hurt the game balance. Most really hardcore players are already max rank. Players can already just buy unlocks with real money anyway so we're past the point of a level playing field. There isn't a huge gap in performance between low-level and high-level guns, anyway.

    This seems like an ideal time to encourage BF3 players to return to the game. In a few weeks, DICE will release a Close Quarters expansion pack for the game.Close Quarters adds infantry-focused maps as well as new weapons and assignments. Convincing BF3 owners to buy this DLC is a lot easier if they're still actively playing the game.

    The Double XP weekend will kick off on Saturday at 12:01AM PST. It will conclude on Sunday at 11:59PM PST.


    As a player who owns BF3 but NEVER really made it past the first few ranks due to playing other games; i'm SO GONNA be hitting on this till Double XP finishes. If anyone like to join me, don't hesitate to Add Me; just be sure to message me who you are and from where you met me.

    Semper Fortis!

    This should be put in the Battlefield 3 section.

    But either way.. it's annoying that they bring it up on mothers day and during finals weekend.

    I wonder if this have to do with Official BF3 server being down or something. Kotaku reported on the down server.

    This gives me an incentive to try and get decent at this game again. I'm so rusty now, and kind of tired of shooters.

    Yes, lets tell him to use the appropriate thread but in the meantime boost our post count and take over this random thread instead of using the forum profile section...

    That's interesting because MW3 have double XP weekend too. And they just have announced it .... I guess developers dont want us to spend time with our mothers.

    If anyone would like to play BF3 with me, I'll more than likely be playing quite a bit this weekend. My ID is the same as my name on here. Make sure you say BF3 or something to that effect in a message if you friend request me.
    You shouldn't have done that.
