Longer yes, but in shorter times actually playing, like Duo. I can appreciate Duo's side, because he earned his too, though he isn't finished. I can appreciate your side, being it is pretty boring playing the same maps time after time, but you have also earned yours. My previous posts must not of explained enough detail for the point to be reached. My point - If you played it and ranked up, being finished completely or not, before this update- You earned it, it wasn't given away. Congrats!!! If someone goes out today and buys it, and two days from now is elite, they got there only by double xp. Therefore they didn't truly earn it, guys like Duo did, you did, I did. Is that so hard to get? No disrespect to you at all, or to anyone, but a cheat is a cheat, and double xp is a cheat. For the record, I just made Prime last week, so yes this week I'm a little upset. If this would of happened two or three months ago, I'd be clapping too. I could of spent more time with the family and lived up the double xp. My question is why does my comment offend so much, I never post anything in these forums, go look 10 things in all these years, but I state my opinion and everyone pounces? Maybe I should return the favor every time someone cries that Hasbro didn't add enough paint! Now that is crazy! Now you know why I don't say anything at all.
I didn't mean to "pounce" on you for your comment. I apologise if you felt I was singling you out to pick on, but you simply struck me as the strongest voice against this double XP forever. Like I said, I can appreciate your position and how you may feel cheated of your time, especially when gaming does not comprise a significant portion of your life. Mucho props for maxing out your PRIME mode, and I thank you for the praise you offer me for my levelling up, even though it equates to less than half the work and time you've put in. I haven't taken major issue with your comments (so, again, apologies if that's how it seemed) but I do disagree. Surely there's nothing wrong with that.
I just think it's a bit harsh to call anyone only now starting out on the multi-player modes cheaters because of something they can't control. The options they have is to either earn double XP or not play the multi-player game at all. What if some kid has had to wait until now to get this game as a birthday present or has only just gained the ability to go online? It's a bit unfair if he's immediately bombarded with everyone calling him a cheater because of what Activision and High Moon decided to do. And they're not exactly giving the Elite status away. Players will still have to earn it. They just won't gain the same amount of experience and wisdom you have.
