Battlefield 2 Beta Patch

The Battlefield 2 Website (thanks Frans) now offers downloads of a new version 1.4 beta patch for DICE's military shooter sequel. Here's word on what the beta entails, as well as appropriate warnings about the need to protect your original BF2 installation, the lack of official support for the beta, and how many servers will be available:
We are beginning the first phase of our 1.4 patch beta testing! This initial phase of testing will only include a small number of servers whose focus is to ensure stability in a live environment. At the completion of this phase we will be rapidly expanding the number of servers hosted to allow everyone an opportunity to review this latest patch.

I would like to stress that everyone who downloads the beta files should take the time to read the included text file so that you can properly safeguard your current BF2 install.

Also please note that EA Customer Service can not provide any support for issues related to the Beta Patch. I encourage everyone to log into the EA-Battlefield forums and participate on the 1.4 Patch Beta discussions that will cover both 1.4 issues, tuning changes, and new features.

Beta Full (522MB)
Beta Incrimental (138MB)

A few of the servers hosted will be set to the new ‘No Vehicles’ server setting that will allow players to focus on infantry vs infantry combat on all BF2 and Special Forces Maps. Other servers will include the new "Road to Jalalabad" map, sponsored by Comcast, which will allow US and MEC forces to engage in a new urban warfare environment!

Everyone here at EA and DICE look forward to working with the community to ensure this next patch is a solid step forward for the Battlefield Franchise.

That's another easy fix. How about you learn to AIM?

How do this have anything to do with aim? It LOCKS ON to the target. There is no aiming involved.

The fact is that it's an anti-air turret can't actually kill anything in the air without taking an hour to reload at least once, by which time you'll probably be dead.

Man talk about whining. Next thing you know you'll be complaing about the pistols being too accurate...

I get the feeling that his post wasn't really meant to be taken all that seriously.
