@ Yonder, while I think that adding bots is probably a bit more than a few lines of code, it certainly is much less resource intensive than a SP campaign. And there's a lot of knowledge on how to program bots on multiplayer maps, since it's been done on dozens of games. Hell, UT did it 15 years ago, and individuals like Stephen Polge programmed bots for Q2 by himself. Like you say, it's inexcusable not to have bots to allow multiplayer games offline or with a few people vs the AI. I have dozens of hours in the BF2 mod AIX, either alone or with a couple of people b/c that feeling that you're participating in a huge battle is a lot of fun. And I can do it at my leisure without having to find and join a game, anytime day or night, not deal with teenagers, etc. etc. And that's why I won't buy BF4 or TF until there are bots.

What I really don't understand is why Dice or Respawn won't allow modding of their games so modders could do the job they don't want to. Very frustrating.
