    It's intentional, they want as much of the bulk of players to jump onto the next release as quickly as possible.

    I mean they updated Battlefield 4 with the only purpose of the update being to advertise Battlefield 5 by forcing everyone starting Battlefield 4 to watch a full screen advertisement for 5, this is when I stopped playing 4 and uninstalled Origin altogether, I have zero tolerance for such a thing.

    Same with Mod support, they no longer support Mods because it prolongs the life span of a title, they don't want that, they want you on the next thing when they say jump stupid.

    Saw the video Corrupt shared as well. Has good points, although I don't fully agree.
    But long story short, as always (to save people 20 minutes of time watching the video), management fcked it up. :D

    This thread made me feel nostalgic thinking about past bf games and then I remembered I have Battlefield 2 on Steam so instead of fishing for my cd version just do that and have a bit of fun fighting the bots, then I clicked the store page link while it was downloading to see if what I have on steam has the dlc included and it just goes to the front steam page...... the game has been removed from Steam, only those that own it, well.. still have it, then noticed there is no top image for Battlefield 2, just blank with "Battlefield 2".... sigh.... says a lot about how much EA actually cares about video games.

    ^ didn't they give it away for free on Origin some time ago? I believe I have it on origin even though it was around way before origin.

    Same, hehe.. I forget my thought process as to why I got it again, it must have been cheap so I just got it just because.

    What would be really cool is if EA put Battlefield 2 back on Steam and to enable the steam workshop / mods for it, same with 2142, Vietnam, 1942... have Steam handle the servers for it.. It will never happen, but hey, one can dream.

    Screw gamespy.

    One of the best shooters ive ever played on pc. The environment, the chars and the sound was awesome. Story was kinda off. MP rocked as well.

    We need a BC3.

    I would definitely be down for that, especially if they implemented the movement system and feel of BF5. My biggest problem with going back to older BF games is the archaic movement and feel of those games. BF5 really did a great job in that regard.

    They could do what CoD did and sell the BC3 collectors edition with a BC1 remaster for 100 bucks. I'd def pay that. xD

    While I agree it has gotten better in time, it's not as good as they have it in BF5. Movement and 'feel' is one thing they nailed in BF5. All I'm saying is that I really hope they keep improving on that. Older games (and not just the BF series) tend to have very clunky movement and it's one thing I actually appreciate about modern games.

    I just hope this doesn't mean 'more MTC and pay2win DLC than ever before'. Really hope they learned their lesson with SW Battlefront2. That and the gender politics and all the buggy gameplay of BF5.

    They have A LOT to fix with this title, otherwise BF series is dead. My opinion. Hope i'm wrong though, i abs loved BF2 & 3 and BC1 & 2. Among the best shooters i've ever played.

    JUST DO ANOTHER BF3 WITH TODAYS GFX !!! It's not exactly rocket science is it :D
