With Double XP Weekends, it takes no time at all to unlock if you are a decent player. If you play a lot of CQ, you will level disgustingly fast.
Do-it-yourself-DLC should be the standard. I don't mind paying for big expansion packs, but a small handful of multiplayer maps isn't worth paying for. I don't buy their crap that "the frostbite engine isn't user friendly" etc, it's nothing more than an excuse to fragment the community with paid DLC maps. Do-it-yourself DLC is why I've sunk hundreds of hours into Valve games and even COD4. Hell, it's not like consoles don't have the capability of DIY DLC - just look at far cry 1 on xbox, or little big planet on PS3. Now it's not to say that just because a game doesn't allow DIY DLC it's bad - some of my favorite games of all time have little to no modding capability at all. But it just feels insulting to have small "add-ons" shoved in our faces for a ridiculous price.

What? Are you DENSE? Are you RETARDED or something? Who the hell do you think I am? I'm the goddamn BATMAN.
All that said, it still sucks that there's no mods. If BF3 was actually as in-depth as BF2, then I don't think we'd complain so much about mods and DLC.
EDIT: More details about Armored Kill revealed
So now we have all four map names: Bandar Desert, Alborz Mountain, Death Valley, and Armored Shield.He adds, “in Armored Kill we have four new maps. We have Death Valley, Armored Shield, Bandar Desert and Alborz Mountain,” of which the latter two were shown off in the latest Armored Kill gameplay trailer which we highly recommend you check out right here!
20 vehicles per map is quite a step up from most BF3 maps. I think up to this point Gulf of Oman has the most vehicles on a single map?“We have 20 vehicles on all levels. We place them around, divided into each base. We’re going to have quad bikes, tanks in home base, but also, you’re going to be able to capture bases to get new tanks, for example, or to get a gunship.”
I think Tank Superiority mode was what was suggested to DICE. I'd guess the Armored Shield is the map that has an even heavier focus on tank gameplay.“We have lots and lots of feedback coming in and I think one example in Armored Kill, I saw on a forum, one person who actually had an example of what he thought, “you know, this would be an awesome idea for a big map,” and I think he was actually right. I think it was a really good idea. So, one of the maps in Armored Kill is heavily inspired by that. So, that’s just one example.”

Have you seen the size of these maps? There's no way conquest assault would work.
At least with BF2 the modders themselves were able to make a level editor and such to pump out exciting new maps (for free), and even some were very good in comparison to stock ones. Same with CoD4, there were plenty of custom maps to play on the PC that kept the game alive and exciting without getting boring with old maps over and over. The fact that developers don't allow you to use some sort of tool to help create you own mp maps (even something remotely like forge would have been alright, i mean cmon) just plainly shows how they can be greedy and get rid of the competition that they might have with any sort of DLC.
