If you don't already know, the 5th VIP Map pack is released with White Pass Rush and Nelson Bay Conquest:
 

  How many more VIP Map packs do you guys think will be released until Vietnam?

@FrankCanada97:  How many maps still don't have versions of Rush or Conqust?

@Mmmslash:  I don't see how a Laguna Alta Rush Map is possible.

@FrankCanada97:  Then you just get another Squad Deathmatch on something else, instead.

Nelson Bay can go die though I may start playing BC2 again.

Haven't played since VIP map pack 2 i think. Might go back to playing BC2 now that Epic seems to have stopped doing XP bonus weeks with Gears2.

I think BC2 is a great game, but wtf is this whole VIP pack  thing? It's the same maps, so can't they just be unlocked all at once? It just seems rather devious to announce each pack separately as a 'map' pack so that people think they are getting new maps.

white pass on rush sucks as most of the bombs are located in buildings.  nelson bay is alright except for the fact that one side parachutes in and the other sides doesn't. so the side that doesn't chute in has a better chance of getting 2 flags first. and the maps were not released just  "unlocked". we probably won't hget any real new maps until the vietnam expansion

Not probably, we just won't get any new maps until Vietnam.

I kind of like what DICE is doing delaying all map packs like every month coz I just keep coming back to the game hehe! When map pack 1 was released initially with the game, I already got addicted to the game and played all the maps.  And after a month I'll kind of grow tired of the maps I usually play, then another map pack comes out and it gets me back to playing the game again.  It's kind of pointless though to actually delay it since it's all on the disc anyway, but it does help the game stay alive online since people play these new maps.  If you release all the maps at once in the beginning, people will easily get tired of the game and fewer will play as months pass by. 
 
I haven't tried map pack 5 yet and I'm excited to get back on the Battlefield later ;)

What can I say... VIP. What does VIP stand for? 
 
Very Important Person?
 
If you were so very important, they'd unlock all that shit day 1.

They turned Laguna Presa into a rush map by adding a few new areas, so they could do the same thing.

It makes sense for them to spread out when they release these VIP map packs so people have reasons to go back to it for a while. I just don't see why they don't make new maps, though.

I think it's incredibly dumb to release map packs that don't actually include new maps, just stuff that should already be in the game. DICE have lost respect from me for that. 

#19 Posted by lilbigsupermario (840 posts) -

They didn't announce the map pack to be "new maps", they're just map packs, packs that include maps. lol! 
 
And come on, it's free. Why complain? Just because it wasn't immediately available on release date? When you need to pay, people complain. When it's free, people still complain. Accept it, it's just a tactic for DICE to keep the multiplayer alive since day 1. If you don't want to play it, then don't, no one is forcing you to play and rant about it. As for me and for others who want to play these map packs, we will go back to BFBC2 and have fun playing it. 
 
Even if these are old maps unlocked for other modes, they all still feel different when played.  I don't even recognize White Pass that much when I played it on Rush, coz you'll always have a different tactic for different modes.

I hate both of those maps, so I'll probably wait until Vietnam before I play anymore Battlefield.   
 
Fact: Nelson Bay is the worst map ever.
