It's not the fear of change. It's the fear of EA being able to kill support for the game whenever they wish, which is why people want in-game features and not out of game features. EA control all of their games, and because of that EA limits their life to a few years. No LAN hosting, no self hosting servers, web-based server browser and squad selecting is inefficient.

What's wrong with the Battlefield 2 or 2142 in game stuff? Nothing, from our perspective. From EA's perspective, those games have lasted too long and wants to end them. Buy they can't, because people still have a server browser and can host servers. With a web based system it is much easier to pull the plug on a game after a few years. Because the game has no mod tools, they can't create an in game browser or squad selection either.

And more so the game quits when you get disconnected, meaning you have to load everything again. Inefficient design.

Do you see my point now?

EDIT: And it's not that I don't like battlelog. I do, but not being able to choose squads in game is a fatal flaw, and I know what EA are like with long term support for games. Battlelog works, for the most part. But it should not replace in game features. It should be optional.

Wow, I can't even get the game to load, even on a half filled server, it just loads a blank minimized game windows and sits there. Way to go EA, your suckage knows no bounds....

I'd also like to add that this game with a few tweaks that they get from the beta will be full of win. I can't wait to see the other maps, game play wise the game is really well done and the graphics are pretty baller even on low settings. It has that battlefield 2 feel for me, even though I am not much of a RUSH fan, the tunnel map is very much fun.

The server browser is great as well. I can log in to battlelog from work and check stats, etc... Game launches really fast once you join a server. I am very much excited to play the old maps from BF2!

Stop complaining to us, we can't do anything about it. So either be quiet and don't buy the game, or complain to DICE.
Sounds like steam

I don't think Dice is listening to feedback. There are so many threads on Battlelog about the lack of ingame Squad Management. They went and made a statement saying that squads would be done on Battlelog, and that's just not acceptable to me.

I mean, I love this game so far. It's tight shooting, vehicles~ the map design. I love it, but it's being sabotaged by specific people at Dice that are not doing the franchise favors. I don't think it's Dice as a whole. It's a small group of people with really bad ideas that are polluting the series.

Without Squad Management, the ability to give orders~ the ability to have a true commo rose, I just don't see how this is a "PC" game. It really feels very consolised with the current squad setup and lack of communication. There really is no 'structure' to the matches. There's no way of really knowing what anyone else is doing, or why~ when people are spotted, it doesn't show on the big map...

It's just, it's just a lot of chaos in a game that should have some organization based on skill and teamwork, but the tools aren't there to do that.

Yeah good game, glad we had the chance to test the game, so now they can fix the overpowered weapons (SVD, UMP45)


That gravatar stuff on battlelog is broken for me, It wont change my picture, even after deleting my browser cache :/
