[bf1942] Petition for BF1942!

I'm all for new engines like BFV, but I think many are seeing an
unfortunate pattern arising.  By the time the major problems with an
engine/game are worked out, Dice is getting ready to release their next
game.  It's hard to imagine that Dice didn't see the massive gameplay and
balance issues in BFV that will hopefully all make it into 1.1, before the
game was released.  This had the unfortunate effect of taking all the
users that would have gladly gone to BFV, go back to BF1942 which they're
now complaining about. I can't count the number of people who bought BFV
and have sold their copy because the initial release was so horribly
unready for final release. I personally love the game and play it
constantly, but I had to leave almost my whole clan behind because of
this.  I agree that his demands for BF1942 are at this point probably too
much to ask, but Dice created this problem, not the users.
