I'm really disgusted, I loved Command & Conquer. If EA really thinks people are dumb enough to fall the "not pay-to-win" line, then I hope this game fails miserably.

I can sort of see what they're talking about with the match making, but let's not kid ourselves here. It's still pay to win.

Yup do we believe Ea do we fok and the thing is it also s**tty that there screwing around with Command and Conquer Generals it was the best simply because there we alot of combinations different story lines and game modes from the mod community and units and they turn it into a joke

No thanks, if its not pay to win why not sell the game as a standalone unit at say 20gbp alongside the pay-to-win version ?

Surely it would work if there was no differences ?? surely...

Big fan of the franchise, not a fan of the payment scheme :(
Wish they gave us a choice to either pay for it outright and have everything available to us, or free-to-play and have us decide to take it further with payments.
Free-to-play is a a good idea if it doesn't end up costing us more than the RRP of a standard release these days. :roll:

Should've stuck to Generals 2.
I blame EA.
