WOW, that MVM thing might just get me interested in playing TF2 again. A third team made of robots? I will totally play on the robot team.
I have been holding out for a very long time on this whole bullshit Call of Duty Elite program. I think it is detestable to make players pay an extra $50 for nothing but maps. And don't tell me that the Spec Ops mode makes everything worth it, because it DOESN'T. The Spec Ops mode this time around is much weaker than with MW2, which I found to be actually pretty enjoyable.
But I am getting more and more tired and bored with only playing with the standard set of maps. I am afraid I will give in to Activision's war of attrition on my moral high ground and just buy them out of desperation for something new. But the last thing I want to do is give more money to the machine. I didn't mind too much when Elite was just "a thing on the horizon" but now I see that it is just going to get worse and worse. IE, Battlefield Premium is following a very similar path.
I am more inclined to buy the Battlefield Premium content simply because BF3 is a MUCH better game all around than COD (I am speaking strictly about the multiplayer aspect in this case). But I do not want to support this subscription-based bullshit because I think that: A, they will simply make it more and more exclusive until the free-to-play multiplayer is extremely barebones; and B, a year's worth of MP map packs are not monetarily equal to all of the work involved in a SP campaign, so I do not want to pay that amount.
Like I said, I feel like I am giving in to my desire to play new maps...BF3's servers keep lagging up and going offline...so all I have is COD at the moment...must resist...urge to buy Elite...
