The American casualties average out to 1 per day.

Appx 2,700 casualties divided by roughly 7 years in Afg. (84 mos) = ~31 per month, or 1 per day.

AA now requires a super computer to play. :(

I had to switch to CoD4 full time...the current version of AA has very steep hardware requirements.

I can't afford $600 to upgrade my hardware to play it.

Why is it so demanding?!?! Arrrgh!
