I agree with a lot of the sentiments here.  I'm extremely disapointed with 
the direction things have headed with this franchise.  I'm especially sad 
for all the fine people at DICE that have worked so hard only to get 
played in the bigger game by some misaligned decision makers.

I have not ordered the game, probably won't and certainly will not be 
deploying this in my hosting infrastructure.
