i feel as though the 1.2 patch has totally ruined my bf1942 experience. this was my favorite all time game until this patch's release.

-all the weapons, especially machine guns etc do alot more damage and there is way less deviation while moving. this means less accuracy is needed and less ammo. for those of us that played this game religiously for 3 months and took the time to dial our aim and become skilled, all of that has been pissed away. now any noob can kill you just as easily as you can kill them. essentially all the skill has been taken out of it, it all comes down to who is in the right place at the right time and who gets that first shot off. -planes: as if planes werent an annoyance in 1.1 now they do more damage....more blast radius on the bombs. which means what? it means you no longer have to be as accurate with your drops.

-among other things......i could complain all day.

basically i cant stand when a game comes out and you play it everyday and become accustomed to the gameplay and mechanics and in a heartbeat its all changed. the game is completely different now. it has taken a dive into the arcady side of things and made it easier for people that sucked before. its a crappy ploy to get more people playing it and move more copies off the shelves.

and the worst part of it......most of you people in the community, take it in and swallow. no minds of your own, just "oh yay the new patch is here, its gonna be way better"...thats the shitty thing, the whole entire community decides the fate of the rest of us.

flame me, say what you will....but i know theres gotta be at least a few select gamers out there that feel the same as i do. those of us that were playing this since b4 it came out (demo days) and got real good at it.....thats what seperated us from everyone else, we took the time to get skilled...we were marksmen, we were soldiers.....now it just feels like an arcade game and nothing more.

change file structures, fix the bugs....fix framerate whatever, but how dare you alter the gameplay to the point where i dont even want to play my former favorite game anymore.

did they even get feedback from us gamers before making this patch? and if so what assholes got to provide feedback?

Plenty of peaple had their say on the game patch. It was on the official BF1942 Forums. Your *****ing to the wrong peaple here. If you want to be heard go to the BF1942 website and click on EA'S forum for the game.....I also agree with you about most of the things you cited except for the planes.....I am former military....Do you have any Idea what kind of damage a 200 to 500 pound bomb can do? If you ask me they are going in the right direction with the plane fixes....But you hit the nail on the head about the other issues with the game.

Your complaining that the machine guns are too strong???!!!!! ha i would like to see you get shot with a real MG42 and say that the bf1942 1.1 version was real. The machine guns are more real now cause they can actually kill in the 1.2 patch. If you think the 1.2 version MG42 is too strong, then you dont know ****!!! The bombs on the planes, are perfect now, if you think they are too strong, id like to see you get a bomb land 50 ft away from you and say it didnt hurt you. If you think the bombs on the planes are too strong, then you dont know ****!!!

It is nice that the weps do more damage, a bit more realistic that way...more like DoD. I always thoght that the MG42 and browning sucked in this game. Now there is actually some point to use MG42/Browning positions that are all over the maps(that ppl NEVER uses because they sucked). You say that the "skill" has been taken out of the game? I think not...you still have to use youre witts to conquer youre enemies...and that is skill. Maybe a bit different than earlier...not only those Über 1337 snipers that have played CS for 3 years and in 1.1 "owned" everyone with a Bar or MP44(STG), can now kill people. You need a bit different skills..thats all(need to be more stealth and stuff).

About airplanes...Think it's nice that their bombs are more powerfull than Fireworks. Now it's actually easier to shoot them down since you can get the guy inside the ****pit....has happened a lot of times to me. I actually heard about someone that got a guy inside a tank with a sniper....kinda doubt that it is true thou.

Just play it for a couple of days and youll get used to the changes, and see that they where for the better.

The part about "I was playing this game b4 everobody else", was kinda pathetic and made you kinda look abit foolish. Pretty much 50% of the guys playing now, played in the "demo days" (ROFL), including me.

I played on Omaha beach for the first time with the version 1.2 patch the other night, and had a 3 to 1 kill ratio. Just as in 1.1 patch were i adveraged 2-1 to 4-1 kill ratio. Just because they made it easier for someone to kill you doesn't mean you have to die, just means you need to learn tatics to stay alive. I guess your upset because you played on servers where you would rush a cp and spray everyone and walk out with little damage, and now you die while trying the same thing. If your as good as you claim to be you should be able to over come this patch.

just my 2cents

Well, I was in the beta(that would be befopre you ever heard of the demp comign out), and you are dead wrong. This patch does NOT make the game more 'arcade' style, it is the EXACT opposite. It takes it away from the ARCADE style you got used to and makes it a little more realistic.

Learn to use cover(not run around in the open, like you do in arcade games).

Understand, that the new, more accurate firing is because of IMPROVED gameplay(the fixed the horrible hit detection).

I was good before the 1.2 patch in game, and I still am.

Since your options are limited in this vote, I vote for new option #4: Devious is a kid that took advantage of the bugs in the 1.1 release, and now can not in the 1.2 release, so he blames it on the game, not hismelf.

This game has gotten way more fun with the 1.2 patch update. I found accuracy with STG44 and BAR are a little harder to use where I use burst shots now. There are a few things still needing to be worked on but 1.2 has fixed alot of annoying things and I'm satisfied with it. I have been working up the challenge of using the Engineer's rifle and got a kill 40% of the time I shot it, better than before where it was around 10%. As for MGs, they were brutally useless before, especially the airplane's tailgun, they work well now like what they're supposed to be used for.

So, if you're unhappy with it, sorry to hear that.
