I understand the wreathing ire of the community feeling that they have been bamboozled for buying into the Ultimate edition at launch; Notwithstanding season pass ambiguity, I feel like we have gotten pretty good deal from this development team, and a fun progression through the balancing of the game's competitive multiplayer overtime. They have time and time again, released balance changes promptly and without delay to serious meta breaking glitches. Microsoft patches ain't cheap, and they usually take a week or 2 to get accredited. Even if its an inside studio, I feel like the community reception, monthly content, and or constant tuning can warrant some forgiveness of any major sleights here. In contrast to most studio's, I would say that we've gotten a pretty good run here. By and large, I understand that we gamers come from diverse backgrounds, and that money can be an issue of contention in some cases. To that I would say, the xbox marketplace has frequent sales that you could have leveraged in time had you been willing to pay the indirect cost of delaying instant gratification and waiting to that event. Ultimately, in being a day 1 buyer we all assumed the benefits and drawback associated with that feet first purchase. You can't consume an apple and an orange simultaneously; pick one or choose neither!
