specifically, read how advanced they are making the comma rose system. Its going to be fantastic.
So it has almost half the features Tribes 2 had 11 years ago?

Not that either of these are remotely relevant.

You think every civilian with a firearm is somehow going to change this and just go around shooting people. I really how long it would last with no power,food or water being available to people before their spirits were crushed and they surrendered.
You're demonstrating as much ignorance as Heret|c.
There are countless examples of civilian populations effectively resisting organized militaries, as well as guerrillas and insurgents causing massive problems for occupying forces for very protracted periods of time.
If the United States of America or the Soviet Union could not effectively occupy places like Iraq, Vietnam, or Afghanistan, then North Korea has no chance in hell of occupying the continental US.
In WWII Soviet partisans effectively harassed the Nazi war machine for years after the Soviet military failed to keep them out of western Russia. These people and the civilian populations that supported them were under Nazi occupation for three years before the Soviets were able to retake what they had lost, and despite widespread brutal reprisals, lack of adequate equipment/supplies, and being vastly outnumbered and outgunned, they still managed to inflict great damage to the German's rear, and conduct a successful guerrilla campaign.
In Vietnam the US was eventually forced to cut it's losses and bail out after more than a decade of warfare. This was despite inflicting orders of magnitudes more damage than they took. For every US soldier killed, the US killed nearly one-hundred Vietnamese. Despite this, or perhaps because of it, they still fought tooth and nail, and we learned the hard way how difficult it is to wage a war of attrition against a population in their own house, despite being the wealthiest country in the world, with the most powerful military, backed by the best logistical system the earth had ever seen.
In the 1980s the Mujahideen of Afghanistan, as outnumbered and out-gunned as the Soviet partisans in WW II, eventually drove the Soviets out of Afghanistan. It took them 10 years, and they were the underdogs nearly the whole time, but they did it.
In a more contemporary example, the US and it's allies have yet to stabilize Afghanistan or Iraq, even against comparatively small numbers of insurgents who, compared to coalition forces, are woefully under funded, under equipped, under trained, and out numbered.
So yeah, your assertion that 300 million people would just curl up and cry if a few million soldiers landed on their shores is laughable, and completely contradicts much of military history. Occupying nations is not easy in the most favorable of situations. It's virtually impossible when you are resented, out numbered, out gunned, and trying to control a large territory far from your home and support.
Seriously, there are so many examples of effective, highly organized, resistances springing up from normal people that the idea that civilians "wouldn't know what to do" is a completely astounding display of nonsense.Edited by Blameless - 3/13/11 at 11:20pm
