    I just want to state for the record, that I don't think mods are higher than anybody else. :wink:

I'm sorry if most of you can't understand this, but the day that we stop paying for things is the day the game ends and you'll fully understand.

    You deserve a crown, you are a king, you are a real somebody, you spend money on a game... Let me laugh...

    Let me tell you, you are not the only one paying, you are only one drop in the ocean...

    I understand that EA, who is in business to make money in order to continue to make more games, wants to get more freemium players to become premium. What's wrong about that ?

    Stop thinking you are higher than anyone because you are a premium player.

    Premium players ARE higher than non-premium players. And those mentioned in-game are even higher than anyone else.

    Agree with you, Josh. We are higher because without us, this game wouldn't exist any longer. Period.

    This reminds me of the line, from "Watchmen" I think, " Saying you are the world's smartest human is like saying you are the world's smartest cockroach". :wink:

    So you're a cockroach and I'm a better cockroach?

    Actually ayyezajac, Josh is saying that he is even better than you. After all, he's the one who got mentioned in-game. :wink:

    Asking a question like that around people that obviously have no compunction with being rude is just asking for trouble. :roll: Of course someone is going to say "yes, it does" and then you'll get offended.

    Let them say yes. I'd love to hear the reason people are cheapskates just because they don't want to spend THEIR money on an online game. Last time I checked, this was a free game that offers in game purchases. Some people want these items, others don't. It doesn't make them cheapskates.

    No, no, no, no. Haven't you been paying attention? It makes you a cheapskate cockroach. Sheesh. Try to keep up, will you?

    People who play free, either don't have a lot of money, or have an impressive amount of patience. Or perhaps they have their own reasons. We all have personal reasons on how we play the game. Lumping all the freemium players in to one thing is silly.

    The donuts we buy are really expensive for what you get, so i expect EA to treat us more considering they are making a killing off the people that support this game.

    Really expensive for what you get?! You get what you pay for! If you aren't happy with "what you get", why pay for it in the first place?
