I would get it now. Yes there are lagg issues, server crashes and CTD's (although I have not had any that were not the server going down of late) but for all that it is great 80% of the time.

yeah I would get it now if you are going to play multiplayer. Most people are still figuring out the game / maps but if you wait too long you'll find that you'll get pwnd lots when you start and it will suck...happened to me in BF:BC2.
I also thank the ON3 Network/admins/telstra for their support of NZ servers.
If you want to level up fast, Conquest is the way to go. Just don't play on the Operation Metro map as that has no vehicles, and without those then you won't have much fun :P
If you neutralise a flag you get 100 points and if you capture it you will get another additional 100 points. If you disable a vehicle you get an easy 100 points.
Further note, don't drive on the main road or else you may come across a planted anti tank mine which won't give you a chance to exit the vehicle before you explode. My fault really for putting them there in the first place :P
Going on an empty server on Rush is just pointless really, arming and disarming for easy points, is just not as fun. If I find you on there I'll probably start a killing spree :P
Single player is okish, infact I find it not as good as battlefield bad company 2. Yet to play co-op.
Add me.. funnily enough im Garvani.. im keen on a geekzone squad :D.
Warning: Im getting horrid performance at the moment, it is really really bad. Crossfire is broken with BF3, im waiting for a fix from dice/amd as at the moment I get about 30fps most of the time, on high settings @ 1080p (should be able to do ultra). Bad company 2 on highest settings i get over 100fps, crysis 2, dirt3 etc etc all run flawlessly (I can see that my gpu's in bf3 are only at about 30-40% utilisation while in other games its over 90%, hence why the atrocious performance. Specs.. i5 2500k @ 4.6ghz, 8gb ddr3 1600mhz, 60gb ocz agility3 ssd (bf3 installed on it), 2x Sapphire 6870's...
