Naa you don't.
You're full of more than just hot air, junior.
Run along you little poser, you're not impressing anyone here.
Posts like that, with no supporting reasons whatsoever, make me want to slit my wrists and scream till i bleed out.
People here seem to be climbing on the bandwagon as fast as they can find it. You can bitch and moan all you want but people are still going to buy the game. So, why is it that people who arent going to touch it with a ten foot pole remain the most vocal about hating?
The "spyware" is only logging what ads are viewed and for how long, in addition to your ip address... which companies already have anytime you log onto a master server. This coming from, what i gather, accurate posts from a DICE employee. Quite frankly, I'd take his word on it because should it act otherwise, teh internets will probably collectively shit itself as the Hate EA bandwagon reaches terminal mass.
Given the state of the advertising industry and its LACK of experience in presenting in-game advertising, i think this serves as a logical, albeit intrusive, tool for establishing baselines on advertisement cost. "We have this advert space, seen by x # of people for x # of minutes a day, you can put your ad here for X $'s" While i don't necessarily approve of its subversive insertion to the game, i don't really mind be a guinea pig for testing, because i plan on ignoring every ad to the best of my abilities.
Spectacular show here people, keep it up.This comment was edited on Oct 17, 16:04.
