EA "working around the clock" on broken Bad Compan

Postby jayson_90210 » 09 Jun 2008, 13:05

wtf?!

am i the only one not having any problems?

btw think this game is very very good, wasn't really expecting much but have played the demo more than COD4 over the weekend (even with double xp on COD4).

Good to hear that it is going to be fixed, i was beginning to think the lag was the way the game was and not down to server problems. Looking forward to playing in a game that runs smoothly.

bloody incompetent EA rushing out broken code...again! really makes me want to buy the game when your demo has as much holes as your brains.

I never knew there was any problems. everything worked for me and my friends. was it down to a console or was it across the board?

I'm getting a bit tired of this half arsed approach that games companies seem to be adopting these days. EA have no excuse in this instance, they have just had a whopping beta test for petes' sake!

nah, no thanks, BF3 will be much much better.

This sounds like history repeating itself in the form of the original BF2 release

Yep, and that's even after they ran a multiplayer beta! I can only hope they're also working flat out to have patches ready for the main game - as soon as it's released.

BBC makes a refreshing change after months of COD4. Well, it does on the odd occasion when the demo isn't insanely laggy. Lot's of fun for snipers, and uncontrollable helicopters, but it's well worth a look for COD4 fans as long as they fix the lag.

Oh, and the melee attack is shizzle too, but that might also be the crippling lag. Surely a company as massive as EA can afford to set up more servers than they think they'll need just to be on the safe side? Ultimately, more people will buy your game, 'cause if the multiplayer game is like steering the titanic, a lot of people will stick to COD4 instead.

I had no lag problems, but was slightly confused about why i wasn't ranking. Multiplayer is great, single player not so great.
