  1. Internet toilet paper this one is

  2. BF4 best multiplayer? Are you serious? As someone who dumped way to much time into that buggy game – what a crock of crap.

  3. By far BF4 is the best MP of the year, mind you there has been a lot of bugs associated to the classic maps however, a majority of these issues have been fixed with the latest patch released this fall. BF4 is just a solid game with so much depth and by far destroys COD. I do agree that the lock ups pissed me off as with DICE never fixing the issues. I do think Dice owes a refund to the premium members bc of the failure of fixing the bugs with the game. Still BF4 is an awesome MP game, the best of the year even with the bugs. Still I think Dice owes the fans for dealing with the issues for so long.

  4. Who paid for these "rewards"..
