@BlackOpsViking Stop spamming the board

Thanks for posting. The amount of tweets they were doing all of a sudden, without prior notification, had caused me to turn off their notifications, because the timing wasn’t right for me. So, thanks for summing this up.

I like that it will be authentic. That way the young players become historians as they learn and play the game. This also means, they will not need to spend much time studying that brutal era, [and subsequent ones, I assume]. I hope every country involved will eventually be represented as time goes by with BF1. So, thumbs up for the DICE programmers.

It is really going to be tough for the Batlefield crew to maintain a sense of authenticity and bring in the fun factor that games want/need. Really curious to see how they implement.
