People Talk about what would you want in another expansion, But I remember when Coral Sea came out for free, And EA said there will be more maps there working on that would be free downloads for such a successful game. Well it's been a long time since Coral Sea came out and I haven't seen any news on new maps from EA, Or what there planning on this year. If UT 2003, RTCW, just to mention a couple , can make pro maps for there game . then so can BF. It Helps support the game and gives the people that bought there product moree incentive to purchase there products in the future. A good map pack from EA would be nice for a download for all the bf community. It shows good Client bussiness relations. and gives people a good outlook at a company that made a good game.
With all the other people that are making maps and mods for bf, I think it's great. Theres a lot of good mods and maps out there, But ! It's not from EA. so everybody doesn't download them and theres not any servers that support new maps or mods, Unless it's an original creation and install from ea. With the Exception of Desert Combat, Which is a really great mod, and lots of support for it, With alot of servers and Updates on what there doing for future upgrades for DC.
Now the RtR mod collection 1.3 is an Awesome Mod. you get all the planes, and equipment from RtR for all maps. But I yet to find a server for it.
And another is heavy bombardment mod, Soldier 9 realism, theres a couple of good mods that are hard to find servers for ..
Anyway just saying, EA Wheres the maps you promised ?
Hey I'm still waiting for Arnhem Brige that EA said was in Spearhead! Yeh I found a custom Arnhem Bridge but it's too small. Never rely on EA.
I'm still waiting for a "Battle in the Atlantic" Mod featuring the battle with the Bismark.Hell just to see the Bismark in the Game somewhere would be kool.
Bismark, cool .. where did you hear that at ? I usually go and check on EA's board but they never have any updates on anything as to whats going on.
This post keeps getting pushed down lower . and the one post about , What do you want in another Expansion Pack stays on the top of all other posts. Is it because they don't want to hear of anything free ? There Flippin Maps Crist Sake. There are alot of people that are making maps all the time for this game and there free, But because there not from EA, alot of them aren't recognized or downloaded, and if they are you have to play them single player or with bots. What is the big thing about EA giving the consumer of this game free maps once in a while. It's just Unreal that they rate there selves so high with arogence that they may come up with a map once a year saying this is your christmas present.. I wish people would take maps that other people make more or any good mods that are out there more seriously and play the heck out of them and put them on dedicated servers. For it's the people that help make a Company strong. And if the people buy a game. and help make the company millions of dollars, Then Keep the people happy and coming back for more, A few incentives isn't asking to much for a game that the people who bought it, made it what it is today.
I fully agree with you but fact is the people at EA are money hungry pricks, they have always preferred to milk the cow with expansion packs (look at the sims franchise) instead of giving free content. I do think we will see more free maps but i highly doubt there will be any more than 1 released at a time and obviously they will be infrequent. IMO the very least they could do is give a proper map editor to the community, afterall it was promised awhile ago. A lot of the custom maps out there are nicely designed but they turn me off cause none of them have shadows around the buildings and other objects, looks real ugly.
