So Treyarch is hosting another double XP weekend for Black Ops II across the platforms (PS3, Xbox, PC and Wii) from February 22 until February 25. This time in order to hype up the release of the upcoming Revolution map pack DLC, they say.

This really subsidies for rank boosting, and Treyarch’s policy has legal sanction. But is fucking unfair.

Only those who are able to play – on this specific and limited occasion – can take advantage of this. Generally speaking, what is the meaning of double XP? To get motherfuckers back into the multiplayer? A hype? Is that really necessary with thousands online? I guess I’d be glad if I was able to play this weekend, but I’m not. And therefore I’ll miss out on all the boosting.
