Battlefield 2 Beta Patch by Christmas

The Electronic Arts UK Community Forums have a couple of updates from DICE about the long-awaited version 1.5 patch for Battlefield 2. Back in September EA announced the version 1.50 update for the military shooter sequel would be delayed to this winter sometime to allow them to address a couple of exploits. Word is they are looking to release a beta version of the patch by Christmas: "The beta would be for everyone that wants to install it, the more people that do the better feedback we get and we don't have an update 1.30 again. That update alone set us on the road of public beta to stop it from happening in another update. The plan is to get it out before Christmas yes." Thanks Ant and Planet Battlefield.

I imagine this is probably going to far, but does anyone think that having centralized online rankings and such is a terrible idea? It's just a game. Is it that important to have some rank?

Cheaters with confidence problems and MMOG-style grinding are the last thing FPSs need. I suppose having both is good so that ranked servers could be thought of as a sort of flypaper for that, but look what happens with a game like Far Cry 2.

Personally, all of my enjoyment comes during the actual gameplay itself. What the results are overall, or even at the end of the match, isn't really that important. Naturally, I like to win and to keep score, but do I really care if I don't? Did I still have fun? Was my time wasted if I didn't win?

Talking to myself? Sure. It stops the voices in my head.
