If you read the whole intel statement you can see it's not exactly a 100% guarantee.  Broadwell was the mentioned architecture yet they didn't come out and say that it was definitely going to stay LGA.

“Intel remains committed to the growing desktop enthusiast and channel markets, and will continue to offer socketed parts in the LGA package for the foreseeable future for our customers and the Enthusiast DIY market”. Snyder ended his comment with a “however” statement, he wrote  “However, Intel cannot comment on specific long-term product roadmap plans at this time, but will disclose more details later per our normal communication process.”

Why not just come out and say Broadwell isn't BGA?  Now lets assume that it actually IS going to be BGA, should AMD still be saying nothing?  Fact is, they gave intel over a week to clarify their position and even after that time they didn't address the question over Broadwell.

This is going to sound a little biased, but I can hardly blame them for being reluctant to make a public comment on something like this. Its not their responsibility to clear up every random tech site rumor out there, unless perhaps they started it somehow. Conversely, I found it a tad sleazy and opportunistic that AMD would make a statement like that before knowing it was officially true.

Yep you do sound biased.  First of all I wouldn't trust intel as far as I could throw them and second AMD simply made a statement saying that they wouldn't be changing their policy, which is not even remotely close to being sleazy and opportunistic.  Intel had days to clarify their position and didn't do it, perhaps they need to pay more attention?

Of course when you make $4 billion profit every quarter it's not like you give a shit what the tiny enthusiast market is worrying about.

You know wat needs a nerf?! GUARDIANS! How you suppopse to defeat a pro team with 4 GOOD Guardians that all camp each of the 3 points, so they'll always have at least 2 points capped at all times! Conquest mode favors guards.

Or just fix what is really wrong with spvp in the game, namely point capture in all battlegrounds.
