The Future of Battlefield

What do you guys think about the current business model EA is using with Battlefield? Do you like the current "Premium Subscription" style of the game? Personally I was originally very against the idea, but was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the map-packs. It isn't something I necessarily support though.

One of the biggest disappointments though is the lack of community tools. Some of my fondest battlefield 2 memories are playing on game mods such as Sandbox and Project reality. I'm also worried about how they are already attempting to build hype for BF4.

Thoughts on the matter?
