which is pretty much what the military would probably be getting if they're singling out good players for recruitment, if you think about it, lol

I prefer neither; if there are not enough citizens who are willing, for the right reasons, to risk their lives in a particular war, then it's either a war we shouldn't be fighting, or leadership hasn't succeeded in making a compelling rational case.

Of course, if we were relying on only soldiers willing to fight with being coerced (such as through a draft) we would have been screwed in WWII. It's not that I don't see what you're saying, though.

Yes. And I promise, you will not wake up dazed and confused in a recruitment office. I think.

I'm starting to feel like an elderly person. I've played this game since 2002...

Come on, it's really, REALLY old. I used to play version 1.2 mostly. Back then you had to qualify as a rifleman to even play online (Although you could play some online mode with laser tag or something if I remember correctly)! To use a Sniper rifle you needed to be excellent rifleman during training (some people couldn't even QUALIFY as a rifleman) and it was really really hard to do, so only the "elite" managed to be a sniper in the servers. I recall it took me 2 months to finally do it.

Then they dumbed it down and I stoped playing. But back then it was very enlightening about the army experience and what sort of things you learned there :) That's coming from a non-north american by the way.
