A corrected strategy will be posted by 10:00 PM 11/10/2011.
It has come to my attention that the commentator I referenced in my original post had his figures COMPLETELY wrong. In an effort to bring the freshest content to IPC as quickly as possible I didn’t double check the figures myself. Instead I completed my analysis based on faulty information from a commentator that I would have previously staked my life on if it came down to info pertaining to COD.
Accordingly, I have cleared out the strategy I previously posted. Just so we’re clear, the concept of not going all the way to maximize your weapon XP was sound, but the exact figures I previously discussed were inaccurate. It has been less than a day (at this point) since I originally posted the strategy so I am sure it hasn’t done any permanent damage to anyone’s multiplayer profile.
In any case, I want to apologize to all of IPC. In this instance I broke one of my cardinal rules and didn’t double check the data before I published everything. For that I am deeply sorry. The correct analysis will be posted tonight after I double check the figures I will confirm personally to be accurate.
I am requesting that a mod close this thread so as to not confuse people with the fact that the original strategy posted was based on faulty information. Thank you.
