However, let's not forget those that came before; we strongly suggest you take this late opportunity to squeeze the remaining vestiges of life from the multiplayer component of Battlefield 3 in this weekend's Double XP event.

Starting at 2AM PDT on Saturday August 10th and running until 2AM PDT on August 12th, players will be able to gain double the experience points on any map and mode on Ranked servers and make progress towards the following achievement:
