The problem is that in our new world of gaming patching doesn't = fixing bugs anymore. Patching is the only way to get new content into the game, like maps, because of company's not releasing the stranglehold they have the tools and servers. The only other way is a DLC patch. But in FTP games it's hard to charge for core content patches without destroying your fan base.
