Maybe they've picked this for a reason. To get some indication of what an average weekday might be like, otherwise they'd be doing in the evening and on the weekend.
Whats the point of that? A stress test usually implies loading it down like a mofo. This time frame could eaisly be when the servers have the least load.

Yeah really.

Middle of the work day even for EDT.
Only beta or pre-purchased people.

Does not sound like much of a stress test.

  • autospot - why does the client even KNOW where people are in order to spot them? Shit, no wonder the BF games are so laggy, every client knows everything about every other client that it has no need to know about!]
  • The client does need to know this. Game clients have known where EVERY other player is for years. Going back to DOOM! How else do you think you can change your player view while watching a demo record?

    The game has to know this for many reasons. Where the bullet came from. What sounds to make and where to make them from (not to mention calculating in effects on that sound due to the environment.)

    Is this the patch that fixes the minimap by either making it fully transparent *instead of like 90%*, or gives us the ability to change the size?

    I'm not sure which would be more cruel to say to you - that it won't happen, or that yes, they're doing it...on blizzard time. :)

    Or to stop bitching about really petty things when there are much larger issues that need to be dealt with.

    Will Windows 7 be the new XP

    Yes. At least with me unless Win8 makes some drastic UI decisions that I know it wont.

    And that is just on a personal note. On a business note (I work IT) we are not even remotely looking at a upgrade to Win8 for at least 2 years. We got enough flack moving to Office 2007 and Win7 from users that refuse to learn something new.

    You can do this with any Bink files in any game.

    I thought this was common knowledge for years. Used it way back in RvS days.

    I love how a large group of people seem to be "OK" with this. It's people like these that are helping kill PC gaming.

    Stop thinking these horrible ports are OK! Developers will think PC users don't give a shit about good ports and will only continue to take the easy way out.

    I've already got Back To Karkand DLC but this is a pretty worthy deal.

    $120 bucks worth of 5 x DLC for only $50 is good.

    Yay, someone actually has sense and did the math! If you are into bf3 and were intending on getting all the dlc's then this a FANTASTIC deal, all the fluff on top is just icing on the cake.

    People just see the EA name and automatically think they are going to get shafted, which honestly is the case most of the time. Here they are actually putting together a good package that saves you money.
    Nevermind the fact that the map packs are stupidly overpriced to begin with.

    So tell me how this is a "FANTASTIC deal"?

    Everyone needs to be reminded that prior to the complete edition none of the Dragon Age Origins DLC was obtainable through Steam yet it remained on Steam throughout; given that their stated reason for pulling some of their games off of Steam is demonstrably false, I think it's safe to say EA is, as usual, full of shit.
    Valve changed their ToS just before Crysis 2 came out. Dragon Age Origins was 'grandfathered' in so it and all other games prior to Crisis 2 were unaffected.
