I don't want the BF series to turn into COD here, we shouldn't need a new major product to come out within a year (BC2 hasn't even been out a year). This is something to occupy your time here and there, if you go backrupt buying every new weapon under the sun, thats mis-management of money. Theres a ton of AAA free to play titles out there, if you haven't played them I'm sorry. But my example of League of Legends is an amazing F2P title that is better than its Pay to Play competitors. And it offers full game content without costing cash, you only pay for visual skins. This gives people the opportunity to try out BF2 if they never have. And for free, and it most likely took very little development hours. The BF 2 Collection is still $29.99 on Steam store.. .thats as much as BC2, and now we have people complaining about them offering that for free! I have played numerous F2P titles and I have yet to spend $30 on any one of them, so basically if you spend smart, or don't spend at all, your actually saving money, I just can't see how thats a bad thing. It also has zero effect on BC2, Vietnam is right around the corner, BF3 is slated for sure, BC2 patches have been happening a lot lately, all sounds good to me? What hype? And quality? BF2 is still one of the best FPS experienced out there and now it can be enjoyed by all and bring some life back too it. And what hype, yes it's F2P, but dont expect people to up and quit BC2 here, if anything this will bring in COD fans (as COD has way more players, albeit mostly on console) and then they might actually want to give BC2 a shot. Remember, COD4 became popular on console and BF never made it there in time so COD shot up in popularity, most people I know that play COD on console never even played any BF game ever, they hadn't even ever heard of BF till BC2 was announced. Some of those people I got to try out BC2, and the ones I did, all of them have liked it more than MW, they had never tried it before, didn't know what they were missing, but its hard to go out and spend money on the unknown when your happy with what you got, this allows them to get the feel for free.
