Towards the end of August, we will be releasing a new patch, 1.03. This patch is currently underway and will undergo thorough testing before it goes out to avoid the problems that have occurred in the past. There are over 140 fixes and improvements in this patch. Here are just a few of them:

* Server and Client performance improvements.
* Improved Server Browser - added Favorites and History Lists.
* Point-farming prevention - game will stop Support/Medic/Engineer point farming exploits.
* Squads - locked squad leader will get a message if someone wants to join.
* Many HUD improvements - see the names of others in your vehicle, zoom level changing depending on vehicle, map zoom depending on map setup (16, 32 or 64 player map) etc.
* Teamkilling changes - the logic of how teamkills are tracked will be changed.
* Gameplay tweaks - the way transport helicopters work will be tweaked.
* Additional scoring changes - players who destroy an enemy commander's assets will be given points.

Nice, I've really wanted a favs list for BF2 as HLSW still doesn't support it :(

As a huge bf2 fan this is music to my ears. I just hope they do as they stated and throughly test everything, as it is really annoying when they fix one thing and break another. The new patch 1.02 has been working for me just fine, other then of few days where stats didn't seem to track. Anyone else have that problem. Tried multiple servers so that wasn't the problem.

I hope this means they optimized it enough, so it doesn't need more then a gig of ram!

Damn good news right there. A month away or a day away, I'm just glad they're working on polishing the game up.

AMEN!!
I don't know how many times I blew up the enemies radar/command post/arty thinking i would get points for it!

Yea, the no points for blowing up radar command posts is so lame. Especially since I do it so much I want to be rewarded :D

The thing i hate the most is the stupid team kills where some idiot runs out in front of your vehicle and you get punished for it by loosing points when they are the dumb ones, god that pisses me off :thumbdwn:

Perhaps EA will take a page out of Novalogics book and break the game with the upcoming patch and have the expansion magically fix it. (Joint operations) :p

I want them to disable the CD-Check so I can run the game without a mini-image loaded.

Finally the patch we all wanted from the get go, they probably wanted to get this out the door sooner but had to work on the memory leak problem on the first 2 patches. Still a month out but at least we know the improvements we wanted are coming.

>Hope they fix.......

Hey...how about some way to stop bunny hopping?! Something like not being able to jump at all unless you are facing some object.

Yea God forbid a game requires skill (Which BF2 is fairly limited in anyway) for movement.

Ya, no doubt! lol... :lol:

To win is to lose, Viventis. I have no problem hunting the bunnies. I usually just hop with them until they run out of rounds or stamina, then I bust a cap in their ***. :D

However the game is not meant for Rambo's. Teamwork is necessary/required. So while I might not be shooting them while hopping with them, one in my squad might be. Then I top it off with a "BOOM! Head shot!!!"

Haha, I don't mind it that much 'cause I'm more used to repair the habengut when people like you starts on wrecking teh **** :p

But yeah it's a welcome feature as I do it occationally too :)

Thank GOD - i hope this means that you don't get booted when idiot teammates drive over your very visible and avoidable mines, and then punish you.

or the occasional stray artillary shell - whichever...

Right now it's just nice that all unlock weapons are available to everyone playing on ranked servers for some reason :)

Probably just a glitch/hack in gamespy, EA masterserver or something...
