Haven't had a match yet on either on Oceanica servers but I have played with a squad on Yanks a few times for Devils Anvil.
I missed the first few days of the premium early access so I have no idea if there is a server of Operations going or not (you never get put into a full operations match; wish you would though)
I've sat waiting for both yet not enough ever joined and all just left. Till we can choose to quickmatch to vanilla or dlc or we get it on the server browser think we'll be hard pressed to find one going atm
What platform are you on?
Xbox and PC can use EA/Origin Access to save 10%
I'm yet to see the premium pass go on sale yet but it may have a sale on the 28th to encourage people to buy premium after TSNP. Maybe again just before In The Name Of The Tsar to encourage people to purchase it in time for the early access.
I have no actual idea just theorising; EB games etc could also have it on sale if you are lucky.
I don't know how patient you are so you can either wait for a discounted offer or get it right now to play the new dlc and on wards.
Sorry dude, had no idea you replied. There was no notification.
I am on PS4 btw. I figured it might be a little cheaper soon cause TSNP early access is almost over. Where'd you hear about the 28th by the way?
