Tuesday: I'm about 3 different kinds of happy. Why shouldn't I be... the new Frontier Defense is live and I am happy for its return. Damn that was fun... can't wait to play tomorrow. Wednesday: I happen to get up early and jump into some FTD but I soon notice a couple of disturbing trends. I noticed at the end of the game your merits are tallied... kill 3 pilots before dying you earn a merit. For Frontier Defense its Win the first 3 waves to earn a merit. The problem I have with this is that if I'm lucky 1 out of 10 I'll get to start the game at the beginning. The rest of the games start me off at the 3rd, 4th and even 5th wave. No merit for beating the first 3 waves X's 9. I go to bed disheartened. Thursday: Haven't even turned on the console yet. Just curious if anyone feels the same. It seems the only way to get a full game is to party up with three buddies. Plus randoms tend to leave the game went it gets a little tuff.
