That is pretty cool.
Did anyone do any analysis if it costs you any extra to just sell your ships and rebuy them vs keep your equipped ship and move it?
For some reason I think you are loosing money buy selling your ship and equipment and rebuy it.

I would only consider it if I can put it on a bootable disk and if Windows Loader releases a version that works with Win10. My guess is this "free upgrade" will not be able to reinstalled for "free" on the same comp or new hardware if I upgraded in 1-2 years. With Win8 a legit copy can be reinstalled 5 times, but not really if you change out the motherboard, which would mean calling Micro for activation.
I really hope they get rid of that atrocious activation process.
How hard would it be to have the ability to deactivate your license prior to do a reformat rebuild etc.
Not that I've had a tons of problems calling them activating windows over the phone but it is just useless/pointless waste.
By now they should know that many home PC users (over the lifespan of the OS) will upgrade their PC or rebuild it.
The Windows OS license doesn't have to die with the old mobo

If Windows 10 is like $20 a year, sure. If it's like $10-$20 a month, F that noise. As others have said, I'm tired of getting nickle and dimed to death.
I posted a link earlier in this thread clarifying the subscription confusion
In short there is no such thing, and never will be according to MS

What's the problem?
There is no problem, I just didn't understand the reason why you need alpha test patches for an alpha software.

It's new build and it need to to be mass tested. What's so hard to understand?
Ok I see so a new build needs to be mass tested by all the backers to be "released" to the exact same people.
Got it.

Are you suggesting they should release new build without testing it first?
No I thought Arena Commander was serving this exact purpose.
So now I will have the option to opt in to get the beta patches?

I think they mean that if you have a valid windows key, you can get a valid windows 10 key for free during the first year. I don't think it means that after a year you've gotta pay up. If they did that, the fallout would turn Redmond into Wasteland 3.
Yeah that would make sense.
Kind of how they've had Win8 for $40 for the first little while.
I curious to see DX12 and how it will improve DX11 but I think it will be a little while before we will see any actual game uses it.

Free upgrade means you can upgrade to 10 for a year and it will cost money after or does it mean after the 1 year up you have to pay in order to keep using 10?

Also Microsoft mentioning Windows 10 as a service somehow doesn't give me all the warm and fuzzy feeling about the future of the OS.

Yea I know it's pretty funny that guys like spectalmeat come on every single SC post to talk shit about it
I do don't I?
Well I am sorry if commenting on alpha testing patches for an alpha test counts as talking shit about the game to you.
Feel free to ignore my comments if it bothers you that much

Uh, the open beta for Hardline isn't live yet. This mission is in BF4 as Blue's post says, but it will unlock a mode for the eventual open beta for Hardline.
Ahh you are right. I was confused there for a sec.

I guess the real news here is .. that there is a hardline beta going on?
Yep for 3 days.
There are 2 more community missions planned but what's not clear is that is the beta going to be available in between those times or there will be 2 more betas before the game comes out?
One in Feb and one in March.

Maybe I don't understand this but now backers can test the patches that are available to (only a selected) everyone before they become available to everyone?
Isn't Arena Commander out to test and send feedback to the devs? It is not to play and enjoy the "game" or is it?

I thought Arena Commander 1.0 is a public test for backers.
So now you can test the patches for the test?
