This is absolutely insulting to loyal Battlefield fans, and embarassing for DICE and EA.Dentrassi you should post exactly what you posted here:
A title that is THIS high profile has absolutely NO excuse for such terrible support. EA and DICE could not have possibly been ignorant of the fact that they shipped the retail game with a broken server browser. But publishers knowingly ship titles with bugs and broken features all the time. What is totally inexcuseable is the fact that their patch DIDN'T FIX THESE ISSUES, but only added MORE.
EA ought to be ashamed of themselves. I expect these kind of shenanigans from Majesco, not the #1 game company in North America.
Anyone who is searching for evidence as to why PC gaming is on the decline while console gaming is on the rise need look no further than this situation.
This would never occur on a console. But PC game publishers know that PC gamers are willing to patch, rollback, repatch, and do a little dance while developers and publishers get their shit together.
And make sure you get a picture of the face of the Best Buy Employee working the customer service desk as they laugh in your face cause you want to return open software
Hate to break it to ya folks, but no major retailor out there will accept open software, and some will not even accept it even if the box is unsealed.
All seeing eye went the way of greedy corporate buy outs, now owned by Yahoo and charging 15 a year in subscriptions to use the program.Yeah it's pretty insane. However you don't need to register to it to be able to list and join servers.
Its still amazes me games are released in such a state, but I blame that more on the publisher than the developer. Like T2 at its time BF2 is a step up in mulitplayer gaming and with that you are pushing the envelope.
