Some may argue it’s a bad time to increase the price of the Xbox Live Gold subscription membership, while arguably it could be a good time to do so.

While at the same time, it will make November an extremely expensive month, which may put people off buying Live immediately.

Okay, so last weekend I FINALLY got up to major grade 2.
I jumped with joy and humped the air like some horny teenaged loser. I called my husband and told him I finally did it, and then played for 5 hours straight after that.
Two days later
I downloaded the new patch with the new achievements and was totally excited. I then got online and noticed that my rank was gone, I looked at my service record and saw that it was still there before I started pulling my hair out.
