Op Ed

[H]ard-OCP - Don't Buy Global Agenda.
Does having 4.096 million pixels give you an "unfair advantage" over the guys that have 1.92 million pixels? That is what a gamer sees playing on a 2560x1600 LCD compared to a guy on display supporting 1600x1200 resolution. Hi-Rez Studios has no issue supporting that. According to Hi-Rez Studios' stance, the gamer with 6.912 million pixels (5760x1200 - 3x1 24" monitors) does have an unfair advantage over the gamer with 4.096 million pixels (2560x1600) and therefore, YOU will not be allowed to properly use your Eyefinity or other multi-display configuration to play its game.

It -absolutely- is an unfair advantage, just like broadband was in your example. Either case is like playing a game of Monopoly where anyone who makes $100K/year gets double the normal starting cash.

That said, some people may not mind (like you), but in any competitive game, the playing field should be level, or at least any advantages should be clear and agreed upon from the start.
