BF2 Hotfix Coming - Downgrade Suggested

A new Battlefield 2 Community Update has a status report on plans for a hotfix for memory leak issues with Battlefield 2 version 1.01. Although the site states "EA and DICE are committed to getting a fix for v1.01 as soon as we possibly can," in the meantime they are suggesting that users downgrade by reinstalling the original unpatched version of the game:

HOTFIX for Battlefield 2 v1.01 Coming Soon
First off, a HUGE thanks to all of you who emailed me in regards to the memory leak found in the update we released earlier this week (v1.01). Your emails found their way to our production team and they’re in the process of evaluating what needs to be done in order to get this fixed. In the meantime, and since the 1.01 update is causing memory leakage on some systems, we recommend that you reinstall the game and NOT the v1.01 update we released earlier this week.

Reinstalling Battlefield 2 will not affect your in-game medals or ranked server statistics. EA and DICE are committed to getting a fix for v1.01 as soon as we possibly can and will continue to keep you informed through this web space in the coming days.

NOTE: If you installed and are running the newer server files (Win and Linux versions) we made available earlier this week, please revert those as well. We found that those files had the same issues with memory leaks as did the v1.01 update. You can download the older versions here.

5. How Not To Make A Server Browser v1.01 Jul 8, 2005, 23:50 Paranoid Jack
 
Or, How Not To Make & Then Patch A Server Browser v1.01

Yeah, for a patch that was mostly about fixing the shitty broswer it sure did come across weak. The browser doesn't lock up as much... probably because it isn't functioning any longer when you use the Names filter box. Type in just about anything and come up with nothing. Then you have to shut down the game and restart it to get the browser to work at all. Wow! Great patch!

Well the game is tremendous fun but the limp dick browser is now a limp & broke dick browser. Not sure how any programer could patch it and possibly make it any worse then it was on release day but they did it. How it boggles the mind.

My main complaint with BF2 besides the craptacular browser is the whole "Ranked Server" BS. Their entire rankings system scheme is all geared toward renting servers out. If EA would start enough Official Ranked servers it wouldn't be a problem but as it stands now they don't have enough. Trying to get onto a ranked server during peak times is total frustration when you consider most of us are in clans and trying to play as a group. So even if you have the hardware you have to rent one from EA or their affiliates.

I love the game even with the bugs it has. I hate the browser. And I hate EA's bull-shit money hungry Ranked Server scheme.
