And I predict you will eat your hat. I had the marvelous opportunity to get in a few rounds of 32-player action at E3 2005 over at the Nvidia booth, and even that build which was a month old even at that time looked definitely good enough to ship. I was able to examine all my fears (command mode pointless, squads don't encourage teamwork, etc.) and was able to allay all of them. Placed my pre-order as soon as I got home from L.A.
