Quoted

A Battlepack a Day
Every day that you log into the game in February, you’ll receive a Bronze or Silver Battlepack.


LOLOLOL

Edit: More thoughts:

To me this confirms that all the major stuff is happening right now in Feb. What I'm predicting will be the "first major patch since launch" (IMO all other patches have been stability, connectivity, and all around stop gap measures to keep the game functioning as best as possible) Whereas this is going to be the first "polish" patch where we see some more major overhauls to the engine itself as well as hundreds of little polish issues.

To me it also confirms that Second Assault is very close, and with Premium getting it two weeks early, that puts Second Assault launch dates at Feb 4th or Feb 11th. This means to me that they're going to be pushing Premium really hard all month.

"For all of our Battlefield 4 Premium users, we’re adding two additional weapon shortcuts, unlocking DMR’s and shotguns. "

I could be reading too much into this but I predict one or two of the last to be unlocked DMRs is getting a buff back to BF3 levels, and giving away the unlock tree to get it is one more reason for someone to buy premium.

----------

I will say this, Dice's marketing team is smart. Giving out pistol and grenade tree (both frustrating) will get people to come back. Battlepack a day will also work. When they're back playing they get advertised to buy premium, and with half of their friends playing it, many will buy it.

Now lets just hope this patch is fantastic.

I'm particularly interested in the interviews and can't wait to see community spam of "how much are you assholes getting paid?"

Passive Spotting is the future!

With this, I'll rid MGO3 of infestation. Sans bad gameplay MGO3 will be torn asunder. And then it shall be free. People will suffer, of course - a phantom pain.

Reddit and Konami will rewrite the records... And I will be demonized in human memory. But... The thirst for good gameplay that I have planted will infest MGO3. No one can stop it now. The Rebalance Mod will unleash that thirst unto the future.

I'm actually excited for this. Hopefully I actually obtain shit I want, although unlikely.

The shortcuts are exciting for me, seeing as how I still don't have 100% handguns unlocked, and I only have a few DMR's unlocked.

I'm a fan of the show, but not a "Brony". I don't obsess over it, but I do watch it and enjoy it.

At least they're trying to make up for things.

EA makes shoddy business decisions but at least they're good at apologising.

Those short-cut bundles are... interesting...

Wish I could trade my pistol or DMR unlock kits for Assault Rifles or LMGs.
Because those would actually be useful to me.
