Who cares, if ppl want to pay for a shite game that has an ancient engine then let them. I mean they worship this game like it was a god, so if they want to pay for some privileged extras them let them.
Although we wont give a shit as we will be playing on the superior BF3 frostbite engine v2. I say let them play and pay for what they think is best and just laugh at them, as they will be the worst off.
Our group has got a very very very shit fast server waiting for BF3 to allow us to place its dedicated server software on there and then we and many others will rock til we drop!!
