I was excited that today was the day I would get my first Premium Battlepack and see what Battlefield would reward me for purchasing the Ultimate Edition!!! ...just a regular Battlepack.

Jokes on me for believing that Premium would be any different. I should have just purchased the regular game!

That's wonderful (obvious disappointing sarcasm).

Please reconsider your "Premium" Battlepack for next month!

Sincerely,

A disapointed "Premium" member

    Maybe wait for the maps to come out before deciding if your purchase is worth it or not. The battlepacks are just extras, and I don;t think anything suggested they were special.

    Maybe. I guess I was just expecting premium to have rewards like BF4. I'll behave now just wanted to share my thoughts!

    That's a weird analogy, but I see where you are coming from!

    Actually where does it state that you get a premium battlepack? All I see is that it states you get 5 extra battle packs + 14 battle packs (1 per month) and that is from the store page so do enlighten the rest of us about these "premium" battlepacks with a screenshot of where it shows it.

    Battlefield™ 1 Premium Pass
    Lead the charge to incredible new front lines, grab Battlepacks and more with the Battlefield 1™ Premium Pass.

    4 themed expansion packs: Get a two-week head start on each upcoming expansion pack. Includes 16 new maps, new game modes, Elite classes, 20 new weapons and more. Join the fight with the French army in the first expansion, Battlefield™ 1 They Shall Not Pass, in March 2017.

    14 Battlefield 1 Battlepacks and dog tags: Delivered monthly, these Battlepacks contain stand-out weapon skins that'll make sure your enemies know who's coming for them on the battlefield. Plus you'll get 14 unique, Premium-exclusive dog tags.

    5x Battlepacks
    Prepare for battle with five additional battlepacks, stuffed full of all the gear you need to hold your ground in an all-out war.

    Thats the exact wording in the origin store regarding the ultimate edition which includes the season pass.

    Yeah you kind of think that as a way of saying thank you to premium members for investing in the game they would at least give you the top battle pack

    They said thank you by giving you a discount on all the DLC.

    I'm a first time battlefield premium member and I gotta say I'm pretty dissapointed that all I got was one dumpy standerd battlepack, I was at least hoping for the middle tier battlepacks.

    The value of Premium comes much later down the line.

    I also think it's extremely silly and anti-consumerism to purchase Premium now, but that's not really a discussion worth haviing

    Just bought premium for battlefield 1. Battlefield player from the beginning, dice have another good game but was skeptical until i saw it included 14 premium battlepack deliveries. After purchasing i found 1 regular battlepack in my inventory containing a distinguished skin. Come on dice, this would be somewhat acceptable if it were 14 regular a month..but 1 regular for absolute garbage??? Should be more quality along the lines of a superior battlepack if it is one a month

    Watch your enemies swivel their heads and halt their bayonet charges into the trenches and wonder "is that a bronze Lewis Gun?"

    Getting annoyed at Premium because of the battlepack you get, is kind of like getting annoyed at a restaurant because the temperature of your glass of water isn't to your liking

    I think if coming from BF4 it's a fair thought to think that we'd get a Elite pack since Premium packs for BF4 were the Gold tier, other stuff like knives/ xp bonus events/ camos.

    How can you tell if you received the Premium battlepack? Is it just one battlepack a month or fourteen a month?

    In the battlepack menu it tells you how you got that battlepack. E.g. End of round, ea access, deluxe, premium.

    Premium is about getting the expansions free, it's a Season Pass basically (as it's called for all other games). The bonus battlepacks are just a minor plus, but that's not what you pay for really.

    That aside, I got a legendary from the Premium battlepack I received yesterday :)

    haha.. the weird analogy comment is hilarious. I too understand where you both are coming from. Thankfully Hardline kind of trained me on what to expect from battlepacks.
