When it comes to World Wars, the French have had a rather tough time at it. Usually one of the first countries singled out for attack, they've had to twice fight off enemy troops from within their borders. They're looking to make sure that WWIII isn't a repeat, and have the arms, equipment, and troops to make sure that this time, it's closer to a Napoleonic War than a World War.

Time Zones are a funny thing. When it's an hour or two, it's just kinda like, "yeah, whatever." But then you hit that point where there's people already in tomorrow when you're still in today. As Battlefront is over in New Zealand, they're well ahead of those of us in the US and UK, and are often in the next day when many of us are just getting going with our regular routine. This means that they'll begin their Live Launch Weekend for Free Nations tomorrow (well, tomorrow for most of us, 2 days from now for them, which is still just tomorrow, but... You know what, never mind. Just go to their site, damnit).
