    I should get my G300 Thursday. I will also have to learn all over again.

    I'm not gonna stop playing! I'm just saying until that "new car smell" dies for Diablo the BF3 battles will have a few less TPU players.

    What sucks is when I come back I won't be at the top as much.

    after the first week or so, diablo will be my day game/time waster, and BF3 will be my night/social game.

    So guys. The only words Master Orhan can say is "Noob Rager" so anytime he knifes you or you kill him type in the text box Noob Rager

    Not sure about all the initial hate for this premium service as lame as it may be on principle. Same as Close Quarters if you dont like just don't buy. Or am I missing a detail?

    Yesterday I went on a D Day Memorial tour starting in Caen France and including the main American cemetery. As a WW2 freak I knew it would be amazing but really exceeded my expectations. There are still giant rusted out german artillery guns in some concrete batteries on teh coast an huge grown-over bomb and battleship shell craters at Pointe Du Hoc and random concrete machine gun nests on hills in private back yards. The cemetery was heavy, man. Will share pics when I get home.

    1. It will turn into a "pay to win" service. Meaning you will have to buy better guns and such to be competitive. Not right away but ALL services like this go that way.

    2. I felt the same way when I went to Pearl Harbor. Standing on the Arizona was heavy stuff. Oil was still leaking out of the turret ports under water. Looked like a rainbow on the surface. On the old runway you could still see a few strafing marks from the Zeros machine guns. They never exhumed the bodies from any of the ships. So I was literally standing on a 1000+ men.

    Ah, well perhaps I missed the details on new guns but would those really be superior to the regular unlocks? How exactly?

    Orhan is watching...

    And I think MM's prediction on the premium service is pessimistic, at best. It's much wiser not to argue in absolutes.

    They have to give some enticement for purchase. I agree this will happen.

    Personally, I feel the whole M26 being a bit overpowered right now was 1000% intentional, os people start using shotguns more often, in preparation for Close Quarters.


    Interstinly enough ,I've seen less complaining about me using the M26 as of late, which is nice. I don't realyl want ot be pissing people off by my weapon choices, but hte M26 MASS is far too fun to not use it. lulz.

    Orhan can watch DEEZ NUTZ. Anyway pessimistic? Try realistic. If this service doesnt turn into a "pay to win" Ill be VERY surprised. Ive never seen a service like this NOT is my point. But you are right. Time will tell.

    Star Trek Online is a good example of not becoming "pay to win" and it's totally free. Most people bought the Spec kits for BC2 and they weren't buffs, people just want more of what they like, therein lies the incentive.

    The thing that would piss me off the most about the premium service is if they hamstring BattleLog and make you pay for the info it currently provides. I could care less about fancy skins or weapons that have the same stats as vanilla but look nicer.

    EDIT: Oh, yes, I forgot to add: FUCK DIABLO 3!!11!!1!

    Funny.


    I played Diablo for like 6 hours last night, then BF3 for about 75 minutes. I don't really paly BF3 for the gmae itself, I paly to play with you guys, and have some fun. What the game is, doesn't matter...it's the social aspect that appeals to me. I'll play a game I'm not terribly fond of, wit hfriends, no problem. I'm not some hipster that must have everything jsut the way I like it...I am happy to make due with what I got.
