Actually, I was simply discussing my viewpoint on the boycott with several other members in the news section of a forum for discussing gaming news.

I was unaware that this was actually a thread where only people who agree with the boycott may post in and share/argue their viewpoints as opposed to a thread for open discussion in regards to the topic title.

You can't make outlandish statements like that when they aren't true.

It's exclusive, that's the point of exclusivity. You basically do EA a favour in the pre-order, and in return you get the content. Simple.

Eddie.
Yeah, but the point is the SPECACT kit doesn't give an advantage, this kit does. It's not available to buy and preordering doesn't give anything to EA. As I've mentioned ad nauseum, preorders actually cost less.

I personally wouldn't give a monkeys if the kit was all unlockable in game. But according to the source, and EA, it's not. Therefore; I have a problem.

Could you elaborate?

Or are you insisting that the person I was talking to, who supposedly supported the boycott, but not enough to actually boycott, which means that he's actually NOT supporting the boycott, whos reason for supporting those boycotting did not even align with those he's supportings (while not actually supporting them if you think about it logically) actual reason for starting the boycott in the first place, who doesn't really even care about the boycott in the first place to actually boycott, therefore making him by any measure of logic, on the opposite side of the boycott actually had anything left of solid value to say in regards to our discussion of the boycott?

Screw that...JOIN THE BOYCOTT!!

Who cares if they have no actual solid evidence for their many reasons for boycotting that end up contradicting each other in places!?

Who cares if the devs say they designed the unlocks specifically not to provide unfair advantages or unbalance the game!?

Lets complain about unfair advantages and unbalanced gameplay even more! Join the boycott!!

Exactly I wouldnt even mind paying extra for it, that would even benefit ea since they get more sales. Why are they only making it available for preorders. What is the point of a preorder anyways...what does it accomplish that a purchase after release doesn't

1. suppose people can't afford to buy it now, and are working and saving money to afford it once it comes out, why should they suffer?
2. people don't want to purchase from a specific retailer just to get the content
3. why can't they just include the perks in the strike at karkand they will release postrelease?
4. people aren't all complaining about not paying for it, they're complaining about availability

1. They don't suffer, they simply miss out on some content that will be of no advantage to them regardless.
2. There are plenty of retailers offer this deal, they have also stated that there won't be a specific retailer in the future.
3. Would you say that it is unfair that people get pre-orders at a lesser price? Have people who haven't pre-ordered therefore lost the few pounds they could have saved? The point is to pre-order the game to get the content. You help them they give you some stuff.
4. It's available when pre-ordering, almost every retailer will offer this deal in the end, so just pre-order it.

Eddie.

I thought everyone was miffed at the weapons kit, a la the source.

Eh, I haven't got any time for people like that. Arguing about something that is totally irrelevant to them. I just hate it when people make posts like that because you "can't address their main point" when I'm not even sure that if I did I'd get any sense out of them.

I mean, the main point of the boycott is that the weapons aren't unlockable normally and have to be attained via a preorder. I don't understand how this is unjustified.

1. It does give an advantage because an ammo pack that can shoot through concrete, wood etc etc is clearly an advantage.
3. Preorders give nothing to the publisher. So the arguement of helping the publisher is false.
