yeah you're right, not that troublesome because you have to go through 3 applications instead of one. quit being the dice defense force here. this is pretty stupid.
I could have noted down every
single click of the mouse for the BF2 and BC2 startup processes aswell, but I was assuming that we were having a grown up discussion and not spinning info just to make yourself correct.
I have no idea what is wrong with your rig, but if its taking you anywhere near 10 seconds for your browser to load, I'm quite sure its not Battlelogs fault.
Complaining about a (supposedly) 1mb download for the webpage? Are you on 56k?
"loads page". You dont say? Or are you insinuating that it takes any substantial length of time?

seriously grizzleboy, i decided to read through the 8 pages (probably 9 now) and all i see you doing is acting like ea pr. this is not a good creation, this is an annoyance. this is stupid and it's no wonder that EA couldn't get it on Steam because Steam never would've allowed some crap like this.
if this is the "future" of server browsers i'd like to opt out. this is terrible. they announced they'd have a built in server browser and now they're saying nope? unbelievable that dice/ea would do something like this. no wait no it's not, this is something i've come to expect. bf3 may be a solid game but please, this stinks worse than ubi's drm.
Basically all of what you just typed is opinion, almost none of it is factual. Just like you saying the command rose being the worst game mechanic ever is also thankfully, nothing but a very uncommon opinion.
Worse than ubi drm? If you say so.
Annoyance? For you maybe. Pressing alt-tab is no more laborious for me that pressing escape and clicking the mouse one time, but that's just me.
Not good? If you say so.
Reason why its not on steam? That's a totally unrelated matter.
I have never at any point said that this is the future or any of the rubbish you're trying to pin on me.
said however, that it WORKS and IS faster than other methods for getting in and out of games.
It DOES work and it IS faster.
I have also said that I like how it integrates forums/friends lists.
I have also said that I think an in game server browser would be more aesthetically pleasing, but as the core function is the same at the end of the day and does what it should and MORE than a simple in game server browser does, I don't really mind.Edited by GrizzleBoy - 8/20/11 at 7:22pm
