Thanks very much for the fast reply.  Has anyone from Dice mentioned a
tentative patch date?  I know that's a dumb question to ask and the answer
is always "when it's done", however, those of us who paid for the game
cannot play it in its current state.

Some of the big name video games being released nowadays have bugs in them
so bad that consumers should start pursuing fraud charges against these
companies for putting out faulty products, not supporting them, and most
importantly for lying in the pre-release documentation.
