See what Michael provided....
How odd, most of those issues are also bugs in BF:V and Dice Canada and 
Dice Sweden are not working together ?
Or should be seen as a different organisation.
Anyway there are big issues, the most annoying is the reloadbug, which 
should be noticed in the prerelease beta testing, as
well as another few bugs at the list Michael provided.
Some are little and aren't really issues, though its a sum, together 
it's a pretty huge list tbh.

And ofcourse time = money, the fact is things are developed, maps 
(invasion of philipines, coral sea etc..), weapons (DP, Johnson etc..)
where the community never asked for, for example the soundbug was 
already reported in 1.5, a lot of people wanted to see it fixed, but
instead of getting that fixed, we get a bunch of new weapons and a sucky 
way too big map, where we haven't asked for.
Also this WWII mod for BF:V... What's this for ? They could have easily 
invested this time in fixing major bugs in BF1942 or even BF:V.

I dont give a damn about money, it's just I want to see this game live 
on and don't die after 2 years, it's one of the nicest, tight, mature gaming
communities out there, if you ask me.
Anyway, I don't know the hierarchy between EA and Dice, so I just blame 
them both :)
