Also, do you know how much it costs to run a QA dept? With a staff of 20-30, you are probably looking at $3-5M USD.
Yeah, I realised how infeasible that actually is after I wrote it. Also, as with any internal white box testing, the QA group should have knowledge of the code so as to properly debug and send back useful information.

Watch a clip of top gear here and see what kinda cars they have!!!
Lots of people here have nice cars, yet rely on public transport as it is quicker and cheaper to get around on in the cities.

They are just employed, they do work for extrinsic reasons first (most likely). If someone said "have the day off because of the strikes", you can bet they took that paid leave

And to all the people living in the US, this is ROMANIA. Not everyone has cars like in the US, and a transportation strike, no matter how planned, is going to stop most from going to work, or at least give them an excuse not to.
that was me
oh and don't worry ... the problem is that too many people have cars so a lot of other people chose to travel by public transport so when public transport goes to ****, having a car is next to pointless

right ... like you would know.
most of my friends have cars and they're only teenage kids with no income... and I live in this god forsaken town at the far west of the country.


edit: more info coming soon... let me start translating a few things for u guys.
edit2: well here it is:
the capital's mayor, Oprescu declared that after the meetings with RATB syndicate leaders, 80-85% of the public transportation system will be available for the citizens.
this strike was planned for tuesday 1 june.
the syndicate president of RATB said that in the 1st of june 85% of the public transportation system will be available.
there are 11 syndicates with aprox 11.8k members at RATB out of which only 1 syndicate wants to go on strike on the 1st of june.
now, the ones on strike, they're gonna stop all activities between 4AM-4PM. and warn that if necessary they'll go on a general strike because of the decrease in salaries (25%).

all of this was for the 1st of june remember ... so this is old news.
QA department basically used this strike as a scapegoat for them being lazy or for some internal problems that they ware not expecting.

And no, it's not a simple misunderstanding; Arica has nothing to do with Africa and it's quite obvious after playing a while that the name is not Africa.

I'm not trying to badger you but I just don't buy your argument that you played BC2 and then gave it up; it sounds like you weren't really into it anyway.

I've been playing BC2 since the PS3 beta (which was on that map...).

brb, going to see my doctor to get tested for Dyslexia. Not the first time I've made a mistake like that. When I saw people online talking about the drug Salvia, I thought they were saying Saliva for a few weeks.
