Battlefield 3 Premium Double XP Event Underway, MP1st Servers Up and Running

Battlefield 3 Premium members across the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC are currently enjoying double XP across all ranks maps and modes until the 7th of January, 2013.

To celebrate this event, and just the new year in general, we’re throwing up a couple of servers for the week to get us MP-heads playing together. So far, you can join us on the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 by searching “MP1ST OFFICIAL.”

For full server details and to leave your thoughts, suggestions and feedback, make sure to drop a line on our forums so we can better suit your needs and maybe even organize a tournament or two.

We’ll be rocking some of the brand new Aftermath maps, so make sure you have that downloaded or that you are a Battlefield 3 Premium member, which you’ll need in order to earn that double XP regardless.

See you on the Battlefield!

  • HBK

    I’m not much of a BF3 player, but damn they have a TON of Double XP! And wouldn’t most of the people who have invested in Premium and with all of the 2XP events be 100 colonel already? Or does this hepl for leveling guns and kits and vehicles and whatnot as well?

  • Jamic

  • it is an honor to play on your own servers


    I got no replies on the last BF3 post, so I’ll try again.

    Hey Battlefielders,

    Up until about midway through COD: MW3’s lifecycle, I was a huge COD fanboy. But MW3 made me realize how terrible the series is becoming. I’ve been trying to play BF3 the last few months, but coming from several years of Call of Duty I really can’t seem to adjust. I’m not “bad” per se, but I’m not good by any means, so how well I do doesn’t seem to be the problem. Any tips on how I can get into it?

    • mechcell

      My tip for you is: Start out playing TDM. TDM not have vehicles but only PVP. TDM is good way to start out learns the how to play game. TDM is good for every persons come over from COD and Close Quarters DLC also good for you too. Than you doing well try out Rush. With Rush not have every vehicles in the game but only a few but some map have more than other. Than you well try out Conquest but have every vehicles in the game and but some map have more than other.

      edit: IF you need help my GT: eaglemechcell but i have apraxia of speech (AOS) i have hard time talk to peoples

    • uhopeisarcastic

      well its an fps game so controlls should not be a problem. my advice is to skip smaller maps intill you get the feel for it. despite what some fans say the learning curve is not hard at all ( although im a bf vet from 1942). try and hide by objective and kill them when they try to cap. one last thing if you search for mic only in the browser and set your voip to team you should have more fun than just standard.

    • Like mechcell said, start with TDM. I start every gaming session with TDM as a warm up and just to ease into things. I tend to get overwhelmed and flustered if I start off right away in a big Conquest match. Too many things to focus on. Sticking to the assault or engineer class at first might be a good idea as well.

    • JustinD

      What you wanna do is get away from team death match. I had the same problem when bf3 was released. I played the campaign and got used to the game and then just jumped into rush and after a few games You just get used to it. Haven’t played cod since. TDM is no where near the experience of rush or conquest. Just play til you get used to it

  • that is good news. This great content will be included on and will link back to your site intern driving more traffic and visibility to your site and brand.

  • dpg70
