DICE have NEVER been up to scratch with patching Battlefield games....all the way back to Battlefield 2....what YEAR did we get the 1.5 patch again???
The last two Battlefield games have been THE most patched Battlefields ever and most of it has come from community feedback. The reason you can use a scope on the M14 rifle in BC2 is because the community begged for it.
I wouldn't have expected this from Battlefieldo tbh. It seems really childish and I HATE when people talk the way the author talked. "We" this and "we" that....."so, this is what we're going to do".........I hate that stuff. When people talk to me in a suggestive manner in real life I ignore them. I make my own decisions, thanks, and I'd prefer to not be part of this crybaby boycott. I facepalmed when I read that it was only going to last 24 hours.....really???
I really don't get it though......DICE HAVE been patching and updating various areas of the game on quite a regular basis compared to 99% of other games on the market and we DO know about what they are planning and what they are planning IS based on general concensus from Battlefield communities, we just don't know when it's going to be done.
Is that really something to cry like this about?
I took part in the boycott. I have the game and for those 24 hours I didn't play it. But I didn't play it the 24 hours before that.... or the 24 hours after, lol. So, technically
I took part in the "boycott". Though I did read the post, I think you missed the point with the 24 hours thing. I got more of an air of respect for the developers than I did with the Modern Warfare stuff "boicott this gaym forevah! Def 2 all iw devz!". I totally agree with you, though. The last two games have been majorly patched compared to, say BF2. And to say DICE doesn't listen at all is not true, they overhauled the final game based on alpha and beta user feedback and then there's the stuff in BC2 you mentioned.
and it also looks like DICE, or someone at EA, took the bait and posted a huge bugfix list for the next update and mentioned how they're rebuilding it (iirc?) so I guess this worked out ok?Edited by Rubers - 2/25/12 at 8:45am
