I notice that instead of patching existing games, or giving full support or anti-cheat support to any game, they will just make an expansion. It wouldn't surprise me if Zero Hour was just a bunch of stuff they were going to put in the original release, cut out, and instead of fully patching the game to play right, put together this expansion to make more money.

I bought C&C Generals and the support is absolutely horrible, rather non-existant. I refuse to buy another EA Games product if they continue this greedy "make an expansion instead of fixing or supporting current games" policy. I wouldn't be surprised if Zero Hour has a lot of bugs and eventual cheat problems. Then, EA Games will make a Generals 2 claiming to fix all those issues. It goes on and on and on.

They've done the samething with MOH:AA and BF:1942 - same exact pattern, expansion or new game vs. support, patch, and anti-cheat for current game.
