phoenix12$50 should buy a finished, polished program. Yeah, it has a lot of features like voip, squads, etc... but if something as simple as stability is traded for fluff like that, that's a problem. Yes, maybe some players don't maintain their boxes and it's their fault the game crashes or lags, but we are customers with a voice and not blind mice. Loyalty only goes so far. It's not fair to use the Battlefield name just to sell games, the game should stand on it's own. Hopefully this one does that. I'm still holding off on buying this game though until I see patches that help. I'd recommed the same when the exp pack is out too. Let EA know we have standards and expectations.
well said, and I agree. The only way to make these companies understand is to hit them where it counts and that's in their pocketbooks.
and that's simply because they are not there LOOKING for bugs, they are testing the included features to make sure they work, thus Beta testing, not bug hunting,
Sorry bud but beta testing is not just to test new features it's also testing for bugs, that is the whole point of beta testing. I'm a beta tester and that is our job is to find bugs not just test the features. any beta tester who is not looking for bugs should find another job because they are unqualified to beta test.

That is so true mainly because I am also a beta tester and had to go through some punks in SWAT 4 Beta and that was just pure S*it. I did my job so I dont need a punk to insult us Beta testers.
Well I have done extensive Beta testing as well and yes it is about both hunting for bugs and features. But mostly bugs from my experiences! :D But im sure all you who have tested before can attirbute to the fact that if you dont have a very open ear from the dev team your efforts go nowhere.
Anyways Lets get back on topic ehhh? Even thought the first part of my post was off topic lets put it back on with the comment of ummm. What do you think Night vision and Night do to the game? I want to know if now dark areas will actually conceal you so that it is possible to sneak through areas. At the moment you cannot hide. But if they incldue light and dark areas shouldn't some areas be great ambush and hiding spots for the spec ops teams? Also how will all the commander modes be featured? THey say they are going for some realism towards the special forces class. But that would mean no nifty supply drops and no artillery support. Althought they still probably have Satellite (Almost definite seeing as current day spec ops have it) and UAV is kinda iffy but UAVs are very realistic for surveilance. ALso Will there be any tanks at all? Or will they all just be vehicles that are like cars and trucks? What do you think?
Darkfire001I can't believe this, those of you already looking forward to an expansion for a disfunctional game? EA should at least finish the existing game before they try to sell us more add-ons. Concept of the expansion looks great, and should be lots of fun. Problem is I already paid $50 for a game that should work fine, and well people...it doent.
Works fine for me....
