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.

This is absolutely insulting to loyal Battlefield fans, and embarassing for DICE and EA.

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.

That's INSANE.

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.
