Nowadays you can get prime without buying it. I have been playing this game for 2 years now and I'm completely in love with the game. The other day I was playing in mm alone and started to notice a pattern that even in prime hacker and smurf rate has gone up a LOT. And soooooo... I was thinking that maybe valve would give us an option to choose the people we play with at least a little bit. "What do you mean by that?" you may ask. Well... I think that it would be nice if valve invented an option to choose to play with paid prime or all together. I think it would bring back some salty gold novas if they did that. And it would give a better experience for players that had bought the game before f2p and for those who just started playing and bought the prime right of the start.
