"MP Added 15 second spawn timer for Conquest/Rush gamemodes at the start of round to prevent high end machines getting the upper hand before other machines load in."

Sounds like Obamacare to me. If I spent $1500 to have a better gaming experience, I should have it. I have been on the other end for a long time and never complained.
Consider a car race where some people are allowed to start before the light turns green. It is effectively what has happened to people who don't have HD5xxx-series AMD GPUs. There's a new driver which fixes it but if you don't have that driver, you will spend ages loading a level.

I think it's fair to have a 15 second round start timer.

ps. you must be a tea bagger

FEAR certainly went downhill from the first game. I predict this game will continue that trend.

I agree with you that the sale of a used game is a lost sale to the publisher, but it isn't lost due to some inequity by the seller of the used game. It is the game publisher's own fault that it lost the sale because its asking price for a new copy of the game was too high to the buyer of the used copy. This is simply capitalism at work. If publishers don't try to compete for this business by lowering their prices to what potential these customers are willing to pay, then they will continue to miss out on these sales and deservedly so.
That is fine. We are in agreement then.

You are spectacularly missing my point. My point is that publishers should care less about piracy where no one gets paid, and more about used game sales.
You are spectacularly missing my rebuttal of your point which is that neither you nor publishers should care about used game sales because they don't have a legitimate complaint about them.
I think that piracy where no money changes hands doesn't equate to a lost sale, but sale of a used game does.

I think selling and buying used games is worse than piracy where no money changes hands. When you buy and sell used games, the makers and publishers of the games don't get a dime, but someone else does thus profiting on someone else's labor.
We need to burn down all the libraries too because that is the government spending taxpayer money to harm the publishing industry by sharing books, newspapers, and magazines, and letting people read them without buying them.

Remember whenever you play a video game without paying for it, the child of a game developer or publisher starves to death.

You are spectacularly missing my point. My point is that publishers should care less about piracy where no one gets paid, and more about used game sales.
