Call of Duty has it's own flock of sheeple so there's no doubt that they'll make some cash off of this. I won't have anything to do with Call of Duty so it doesn't matter to me, but it's sad to see companies taking advantage and sucking as much money as possible from it's customers.Bungie offers the same feature abosolutely free. Except for that fact that if you want more than what they provided, you have to pay. Now that's fair.What Activision is doing is bullsh3t. Only TRUE COD fanboys would go for that kind of rubbish offer. That's my opinion about this option subscription thing btw. Contextual blogposts

it's just codnet with more options,wait for the LATE reveals and bad news like still no dedis,no lean no mod tools ,Cod killed their own series,but there will be them losers that will go and buy their garbage,oh well.They obviously haven't been listening (as usal) and my fave was how 402 whatever his name is was stating that mw3 was going to have substantial support,well mw2 is still broke,and jus for giggles I went online yesterday,and 5 mins later I still wasn't connected to a game,and I have a 12 mb connection???? go figure.

In the end though the only people to blame are those who put up with it and willingly hand over more money.

I signed up for the beta to check it out. Hopefully I'll get in and see if it's worth it. TBH if they are going to be putting up more maps and having daily contest for competitive players and way to set up pugs instantly  I don't think I would be much different then ESEA so it may be worth it depending on the price.

There's no pay to play for BO nor will there be for MW3. The service provides stat tracking and community support similar to ESEA for competitive players.

To be expected it won't be for everyone to be sure but as someone who thoroughly enjoys the competitive and teamwork side to any game it sounds like it could work out pretty well.
