Here's another item that's not an April joke. The traffic numbers for March are in, and last month was the busiest month in CIC history! While traffic declined for a while after the release of Secret Ops in September 1998, our community has grown steadily for several years now.

Past history shows EA has dropped support on there games faster then any other company out there. Past history also shows the games are released before they are ready to be released which means games full of bugs that customers become beta testers instead of game owners.
