    @4 No worries :D
    And yeh same, it would be cool to also experience a conquest on BF3 as well :( but I can understand why they want to get Metro out again.

    Heh – I notice that the answer for the following question on their site:

    “I SEE THERE ARE SERVERS UP FOR A SECOND MAP ON PC. CAN I ACCESS AND PLAY THIS MAP?”

    Cannot be revealed :)

    Maybe they should consider announcing when their servers will be fixed, since you know, hundreds of people havent been able to connect to ANY EA game for months now.

    Wait, what? People who brought that piece of shit MoH only get the beta 2 days before everyone else? Seriously, fuck you EA you BS merchants.

    Sure as hell beats buying Splinter Cell Conviction where the promised Beta invite didn’t happen at all!

    Still, SC:C, is a far better game, but I digress :)

    When I read it was Op Metro only my heart sank.

    I really wanted to play Battlefield, not Rush.

    Ho hum.

    The beta has already started for a some people who did the original MoH deal. I guess they are staggering access or something.

    Edit: Forget what I said, I was given bad info. :(

    I guess you’re right, i didnt think EA’s blatant disrespect for their customers would extend that far, but if theres one publisher whose going to lure you into their van with candy then rape you, it’s going to be EA. I should have seen it coming, really.

    So now Activision are the good guys again? Oh, you’re like a bunch of spoiled children.

    Naturally EA wouldn’t make an exlusive long-lasting beta for MoH. Then they’d screw over the smart BF-players who did not buy into their marketing. They’ll give you two days worth of gameplay, which is more than I expected, to be fair. I presumed they’d just say “Hey, sorry guys, we thought it’d be a closed beta, but SURPRISE, it’s not.”.

    ^ I’m sorry, are you actually basing that of something i’ve said in the past, or are you talking straight out of your anus?
    I already know its crap, but please show me where i’ve said anything about EA being better than Acti, or Acti being ‘the bad guys’, as you put it.

    And whilst your at it explain why you felt the need to bring up Activision in the first place seeing as no other post makes mention of them. Seems rather childish of you, to me.
