Apr 1st 2010 7:08AM I think a good strategy would be to have free map packs, but offer "paid for" clothing/skins ingame and avatar clothing. That way, the whole Battlefield community can continue to play all the maps together (thus, not creating a divide), yet those who want to give something back to DICE/EA (that can afford to) can pay for the paid stuff. A bit similar to open-source projects having donate buttons.
We can all hope, right..?

Aug 4th 2009 11:00AM Great story. A nice gift from a GM. I hope they don't get spammed now because of it.
Jul 2nd 2009 9:35AM It's obviously going to be a paid service, much like the character transfer from one server to another. Why else would development time go into it? High return/easy money.
There won't be any impact on anything other than the population counts of horde and alliance. People will just pay whatever and switch. Why would they do this for free when people would pay for it? Why make a quest (loads more work) when in the end it doesn't really matter. Of course they won't let a Gnome be on Horde because it will annoy too many people (not myself personally included) and would require even more work than they need to do (as mentionned, they will just pay and want a quick process anyway).
Mounts will be simple. They will relate race to race. eg: Human = Orc, Dwarf = Troll, Night Elf = Tauren, Gnome = Undead, Draeni = Blood Elf. So whatever mounts they have will just be switched based on a method similar to above.
Extra stuff will similarily be based on equivalents (such as achievements, items, etc).
Jul 29th 2008 4:18AM I'm sorry, that flying mount looks awful. They could have done a much cooler skeletal mount than that.

May 8th 2008 4:23AM It was sooo hard picking between the turtle and the pig! It took me ages to decide! In the end though I went for Speedy.. hehe :D
