I saw Scottishheat (Ian) pull the wrapper off last night and hit the ball over the fence (approx. 325 ft) on the first swing. On the 3 or 4 AB he hit one easily over 400 ft, I'd say the bat is HOT!!!!! Like they say it's not the arrow, it's the Indian.

Yes. We had the second game. I watched one of the 1st games of the day and the bats were definitely out of the wrapper, the ball wasn't coming off the bat remotely close to after a few games of usage.
I don't know if it will die faster. I didn't see any die yesterday nor did I hear of any dying. However the 26oz that I did swing in my last game had a nice rattle but with the new Easton's that doesn't mean anything.
My current L1 has around 500 swings on it and it's hot. But I do know it...
