I never had a problem playing online and I pre-ordered my copy. I beat the campaign on veteran the first day then started hardcore online the second so unless it was down that day or you just have a crappy internet connection.
On another note I commented on a post on rap4's facebook and said listnen gimme a free xxl rap4 m4 shirt and we aightt. Well today I checked my pre-order and what do yea know, a xxl rap4 m4 shirt was added for free
That made my Sunday. So I can admit when im wrong, and this is one of those times. In the end they did alright by me, Thanks!
