Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
It'll be supported by ingame advertising and micropayments. This being EA you just know they'll be making you pay through the nose for even the simplest weapon or item.

I think the truly sad thing is this quote from the BBC News article: "The games has a "cartoon-feel" and has been made simpler to play, with more emphasis on participation and fun than skill and strategy."
