Yes we did. We asked for more official maps, and IMO they get played alot.

You wanted realism or you want it to be more like UT?

Hmm. Which one of these makes it more competitive?
Pixelshooting, Fixable in a mod.
The rest would be nice to have but not required for comp.
CPU Usage? Lets see, with all the shit its gotta keep up with, I dont 
see bad performance at all. In fact im thankfull that they have been 
able to improve the linux server from where it started.
Demo recording takes alot of engine changes, and if its just thrown 
togethor then they are HUGE files.  BFTV Is possible, as my clan has 
streamed live games (delayed by 30 seconds to prevent cheaters) over the 
internet before. If you cant figure out how to do it then its not DICE's 
fault your a moron.

Maybe you should think about changing what you want changed before you 
complain so loudly.  Or submit it to the bfpro change requests, they got 
off thier asses and started changing things they didnt like, why dont 
you? Im tired of people always saying blah blah blah DICE FIX THIS DICE 
FIX THAT when in the last year they have put massive amounts of hard 
work into this to make it where it is, now its your turn.  With BF:V and 
BF2 how many more projects do you think DICE can work on? Maybe once the 
BF:V issues die down they can try and release a final patch for BF but 
jesus cut them some slack.
