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?

There are a lot of sites to look up trade routes... I hear Fed space is better for trading.

Try this out where you are and see what hits you get:

The guy recording the video was in a Viper. He was being interdicted by the Python. Than his friend jumped in with an Asp and they chew the Python into pieces.
Bbye 80mill ship.
Hopefully he had insurrance. I can imagine the wtf on the Python player face when the Asp showed up.

Thanks for the trade route by the way I will definietly check it out. The 11 stop rare trade run is profitable but it literally takes me 2 nights to make it around to get back to the starting point to swap ships and able to do something else which is a bit too much of a time investment for me.
I like to be able to jump between fighting and trading a bit more frequently.

Really? Wow, did realize that figured it was static.
Actually a correction to my comment the market is influenced by player actions but not driven by it.
Reading up on this I guess players can not make as big of a difference to market as Frontier made it out to be before the game launched.

Mind giving the specifics?
Remember the market is player driven even in solo.
If he gives specifics and we all start doing the same trade run the market may get flooded and no longer profitable.
With that said I have no clue how much of an influence a single player has on the market tbh.
