    The community manager at DICE's Twitter seems to say it'll be out today.
    @zh1nt0 so is the map pack out, will it be out during this day, will it be out another day? simple comunication would solve issues!
    @doublesit Now now, the day is not over now is it ;)?

    And the original Tweet that kicked the delay news off:
    Regarding BFBC2 map pack 7 release...this was sent out from a GSP to customers - "Unfortunately, Map Pack 7 has been delayed pending a server update to correct a minor issue with the release of the new maps. There is no ETA just yet but hopefully we'll have more information later today."

    Edit: Supposedly there's no delay at all. Going by the official forums, there are a couple of smaller servers that have flicked on the new maps.

    We already have the materials for the update -- they just need to release the patch that says the game can turn it all on.

    So I assume we'll get these for the 360 around the same time? Maybe?

    Ah who knows, we still haven't gotten the first patch.

    So are we switching the new maps on our server, or also turning Vietnam on? I guess I'm asking whether I need to get Vietnam right this very second, or if just the free map pack will keep me playing on our server.

    I've heard both say-guh (like sega), and sai(like the ninja turtle Raphael weapon) -guh. I use the latter pronunciation.

    I have the map list created. Just waiting for my host to finish patching the servers. Dice fucked up on the servers and 2 of the maps would not run. They have to release an emergency patch last night to fix it.

    It looks like my host will let me run Vietnam at no charge, but it will not be side-by-side. We will either switch the server over to Vietnam or have 2 servers. I am not sure if there are enough people who want to play this to warrant me renting another server. I just can't afford to run 2 servers myself.

    Hmmm, I would say leave Vietnam off for at least a week until people can get it, if we are going to switch the main server over. I really don't think we have enough players to support a second server. Maybe take a vote, see who is going to buy Vietnam and wants it turned on?

    Arent they worried that not having Vietnam and Vanilla maps on the same servers will split their playerbase?

    I just started getting a similar issue last night. I can play anywhere from 30 mins to 2 hours but periodically the game crashes (weird one no error message it just closes to desktop) I'm looking for a fix if I find anything I'll reply here.

    When you get kicked for a VIP you get a message specifically saying so. Game crashed for everyone the other day, seems to be a server related bug.

    That day, my game was running very stuttery, and only on the PA server, something's about.

    So, Harvest Day is fucking awful. One giant aimless clusterfuck with snipers everywhere.

    Oasis is pretty good in Conquest, the Rush seems to have a nasty initial choke point.

    Heavy Metal is ace. Finally a big map with enough damn helicopters. The shape focuses the action nicely, although it does make it difficult to recover if you're losing.

    Ah who knows, we still haven't gotten the first patch.

    Depending on what you mean by first patch we (360 players) got that yesterday. I was using an ACOG and red dot on the M14 and G3 most of my time playing. I'd also say the other changes went through because, while I seemed to be the only one using it, the F2000 went from if I miss the first couple shots I'm probably dead to let me walk around the whole time with irons up and make every bullet fire like lasers.

    I'm turning the 360 on now to see if we've been updated with the new maps as well since PC players are saying they're working here. I'll edit this with a yay or nay with my results.

    Edit => Oasis Conquest loaded up fine, so I'm going to assume everything else is working as well on 360 map wise.

    Harvest Day Conquest is fucking awesome.

    And the dev team really outdid themselves with the graphics and detail in these maps. It is fucking gorgeous in DX11.

    Well, those were my first impressions based on one server. But I can't really see HD being good anywhere else. Too much open ground in the middle, not enough vehicles. Also having it set at dawn/dusk makes it really difficult to see stuff so death comes unexpectedly on a regular basis.

    EDIT: Also, I did some research and I guess if you bought the core game outside of steam and bought vietnam in steam you are good to go. I guess you just attach the code it gives to your battlefield account thingy and presto, it works. Cant cite the source right now but I know I saw it last night.
