The petition now already has almost 9000 votes.
And BF1942 still is proven the be a very active competitive game, in 
Europe even
twice as active in competitions and cups as BF Vietnam.
A lot of things need to improve to keep this game competitive, although 
it seems
DICE isn't even listening to the community as they are saying they do.
-We never asked for a Official WWII mod for Vietnam
-We never asked for maps like Caen or Philipines, who are seldomly played
-We never asked for sucky guns like the DP or the Johnson

What we are asking is to fix some bugs in BF1942 and although the 
petition is about
BFTV, which would be nice to have. Since a lot is casted on the 
internet. It mainly is about
bugs (mainly reloadbugs, hitbox box bugs etc.), pixelshooting, first 
person specmode, demorecording and maybe a proper netcode without bullets
flying 4 meters an hour. And not the forget that annoying CPU usage in 
the linuxserver.
So DICE shouldn't be saying they listen to the community, nobody ever 
asked the community even.
And since Battlefield Vietnam will never make it competivitely wise to 
1942, I am asking DICE again
to reconsider their choice not to support BF1942 anymore.
It just can't be that a succesfull game like BF1942 is already starting 
to die after 1,5 year, that's just not right.
Anyway I am sending this mail on behalf of the clanbase.com community.
Hope to get an official answer from Andreas :-)

Kind regards,

Stefan Engbersen
