It's greed plain and simple, it's not like most players don't know the real names (although, I didn't know the current model of the AH-1 is Viper, and no longer Cobra/Super).
Brings me back to when Counter Strike changed the names of the weapons...

I think the funny part is that they've come to this conclusion since the ipad was released in 2010? Now it only takes 3 years for kids to grow up?

The final commitment, now this game can slip quietly out of existance, kinda like Hicks between the movies.... (although, didn't they find his pod to have been sabotaged or something?)

Ferg is making some almost valid points, using extreme examples, but i you haven't tried and are considering, take it with a grain of sale.
An M4 with the high explosive gun (aka the derp) can one shot most light and mediums, --when it hits them in a soft spot-- owning one myself, I can attest to it doing next to nothing in some other tanks when the shot doesn't go exactly where it needs to be.
It isn't pay to win, not even close, because nothing you can buy makes up for a lack of skill or simple bad luck.
Tier 10 I can't speak with, but public matches are just what anyone would expect, public, not tactical.

Or try it, all players got emailed a new invite code which includes a free premium (and no longer available to existing players) tank:
WGGEAR for a Panzer 38H735, 3 days premium, 1000 gold, and a free garage slot.

Tumbler has some great points and it's good to read a well written non-trolling comment.
As he said, you can play without spending real money on gold.
Fawker - tier 3 isn't an overly hard grind, and it gets better, with the last patch, the Pz2c is spam trolling all the lowbies, it sucks.
After a lot of time you'll get to tier 7, and then it pushing a little more towards getting a premium account and spending gold, not because they spam it, but because even a crappy win can net you negatives in cashflow (due to repair and reload).
The grind can be long if you don't, but in theory it's possible to get to a tier 10 tank (highest tier) without spending a cent.

Maybe we can get Bethesda doing a SW RPG, could you imagine seeing the battle of hoth from a FPS POV?
Can't think of who I would want in charge of the next gen X-Wing / TIE Fighter game though.

The possibilities if they open themselves to licensing are excellent (and profitable), but also scary (with the wrong dev).

Too bad for the 150 suddenly unemployed people though.

I didn't pick the game up, and from what I've seen I won't be, but didn't this game come out YESTERDAY? That would mean they pushed out a product that wasn't finished.
There's no excuse for this, and we as gamers need to stand up and stop buying crap like this.
Combined with this new "seasons pass" trend, and day 1 DLC's, enough is enough.

I wish they'd move away from shitty goods while they're at it.
Anyone heard of the MP900 the microsoft cordless phone they stopped supporting after a year, and then erased it from existence shortly after.
Red rings, neglected PC gaming, the windows 8 start...screen? (page?) There's a lot they need to move away from. (Yearly windows upgrades? wtf?)

I pre-ordered X-COM when I saw that it was at 97% to the tier 3 and have been playing Civ5 all weekened, more than I care to admit.
Money well spent, and can't wait for X-Com to roll down ... saturday?

Wow, I think a few devs / publishers need to read this forum, I think this is one of the few posts on blues that isn't full of venom and rage.

I'm downloading the demo too, and about to pre-order.
Ironically I'm playing UFO: Afterlight as I download this demo.

I was interested in this while I wait for XCOM, but since it sounds like a horrible of P2W (it IS f2p right?) I'll just wait...

Half Life 3 on a 70" screen?? Don't mind if I do

//once I get a 70" screen

Chances are a 150" screen will be affordable by the time Half Life 3 comes out...
Convincing the GF to get me get a 70" will be easier by then.

When has valve given any indication that they are going to focus on console and make PC second? You're either clueless or trolling.
They are probably just trying to branch out to the console market to compete with the PS store / XBL market (maybe setting up a base for making their own console).

Frankly I think it's about time someone took the step to bring our PC's / laptops to the TV.

I wish that was the case, too many people spawning 12 person transports and leaving with 11 free seats.

The flip side of that is true also, I spawned a Liberator Bomber today and had a hell of a time filling it's 2 seats (tail gunner and bomber)

I've got a 10 hours played (http://raptr.com/grady450 )and have put a decent ammount of time into all the classes. Never played the first one.
It's good, although a little unbalanced with the factions, a lot of people seem to be avoiding the Vanu Sovereignty for some reason, and have to learn how to multi crew vehicles (taking a liberator bomber and flying off with nobody else? that lets you have a gun, no bombs).
The gameplay is good, performance has improved, but people are going to be the problem.
