I would prefer to play on just one map or 2 for sometime then have the maps and update comming along instead of everything in one year.

We just want to have fun, and the devs like very often miss that point, because they take more fun developping than playing.

It's not good to hold FH2 because that's not satisfying enough, most of the mods started with non commercialisable quality and did fine over time, like Desert Combat, or Eve Of Destruction. I remember FH came out very polished, and yes it was a pleasure to have it, but we didn't saw it come and it was kind of a surprise. That's different right now for FH2 there is no surprise effect.

"me" do you honestly think that the BF2 community knows what a beta is? YOU may be content with a small release but the majority of the BF2 community want it ALL, and they want it NOW. If they dont get it all they will complain. The FH Devs have a pretty big image to uphold and first impressions hit hard. People will scramble to a DL link thinking its a full release and when they see its only a few weapons and buggy vehicles there impression of FH will be just that, and when the full release comes out they will be turned away thinking it will be another buggy release.

The problem is people dont read, they see Forgotten Hope 2 released and they think its the whole bread and butter. They dont bother to read about what is included they just scroll straight down to a DL link.

Just because you may be happy with just a few maps doesnt mean the rest of the community will

Just be patient, devs know what they're doing, if game's not released yet, it doesn't mean that they're just adding content and everyhting's fine.

Yes, but not every mod is the same and follows the same development process.

Think about it, if FH2 would be released today, you'd have no maps to play on, about 6 ~ 7 vehicles per side, 3 German player models / no British models, and a few weapons for each side. Sure it will please the small ''non-patience'''group who want to play with the minimum of stuff, but the rest of the community, who'd rather see a full complete campaign without any bugs and bad balancing won't go for that.

I also wouldn't say that the first FH came as a suprise, most people who were really interested in WW2 were already familiar with what FH was working on in the time that wasn't released yet.

Most people here had to wait as well on releases like .7 or the 6th fan map pack or even the dreaded Panzer III, but no where did it create the whining from people about FH2 that is posted on the forums nowadays.

Just learn to have some patience. :uhoh:

Seeing Augustus can't reach or thus pronounce September correctly that means September 32nd, which is December 1 of uhm any year.

I don't expect FH 2 to be awesome. I guess you can't reuse the original models and that they were designed with to few polygons. Aren't the models modeled with more polygons on 3DS then the resolution reduced, so you can reuse them later ?

I guess FH2 will push the BF2 engine to it's limits, like FH pushed the bf1942 engine.

What I am afraid of the most is that when FH2 will be released the engine will not be up to the standarts of the days.
