PC still lead platform?
So how come the Commo rose was missing and had to be added via the day 0 patch,the only reason it even showed up at all is due to the outcry from PC gamers,and DICE/EA did not want to lose the pre order cash!(you know,ONE of the major tools for teamwork in the past 2 BF's(Which were PC only)?and it still does not work properly(they are not even sure if the "New" one will either).
They told us the patch was going to be delayed?
Really? so the fact that the patch was due to be 20th of Feb(look it up on twitter,if its still there) but then Zintroll turned round and said Danko was lying about the date,and the only reason we got the prelim patch notes was down to pressure regarding the "Blackout".
new vehicles each time?
errrrr,nope.avi.there are no vehicles in CQDLC-the name kind of gives it away.
Its the A2 not the crappy A1!!
No ingame VOIP due to the money they got from ESN for the "wonderful" blattlelog chat,Zintroll even admitted it months ago.
And you again? Drinking too much of the haterade, eh? xD
I can't tell you why it was missing, but I can tell you it's there now and still getting improved. How come PC has bigger maps and larger servers? How come we have better graphic settings? How come the PC version simply plays better? If Battlefield 3 wasn't centered around PC, why would we have any of those things? Heck.. we even have a good chance at getting battlerecorder!
So what you're saying is that a mistake was made about the date and we were informed of that?
(I don't recall the word lie every being used, BTW. Are you just adding that in there to make it seem like they lied to us instead of, maybe, having a little bit of misinformation? which can happen anywhere, good company or bad)
Oh.. and BTW
Just some of the information released prior to announcement of a Blackout. Sure it's not every little detail of the patch, but why do we need to know every little detail? It's obvious that we're not completely in the dark as the starters of the blackout suggested and the biggest parts of the patch (USAS balance, MAV riding, and weapon tweaks) were told to us. It took them very little time to release the notes after the blackout announcement as well so it's not like they just pulled it out of their bums.. It's not a small list so it's not like we're being neglected by any means.
My point still stands. So we don't get vehicles every time.. Instead we're getting a new game-mode and we're still getting 10 new guns. It's still not just a map pack?
I may defend DICE a lot, but it's not because I'm a fanboy or anything. I only see a company doing everything right while a community tries to make it seem like they do everything wrong. Battlefield 3 has had really good support from the start. I don't know whether it's because so many people hate EA or they're just so entitled they think every company has to cater to their every desire, but DICE has done a great job. Very few developers are as close to their community as DICE is and they're usually independent developers.
