My pleasure J. I have been following the news pretty closely. I find writing it out like this helps me parse the info that I read in the articles for myself as well as others. Lots of good folks on this Forum and I know we're all starved for useful info.
My only complaint about that is that the announcer for the faction sounds kinda, boring.
Hopefully that's just a stand-in for now or something. o_O
I have mixed feelings about this myself. I am pretty sure you can still play it... at least I hope so. I loved playing CT when my friends weren't on or when I was too tired to play in a pub match.
I am not crazy about MP being linked to CT. I like having diverging paths, as I really enjoyed trying different things in Combat Training, which to me is the point of having it.
I do hope we can play CT as we did in the past, one of my favorite features of BO.
