Even with the game patched just fine I have always had it come back with errors about not being able to talk to the gamespy master server or time out when trying to connect to servers. I have about a 25-30% chance of getting a connection any time I try. Very flakey. And I can't figure out why. At this point I'm chalking it up to the game not liking my firewall (netgear fvs318). Hell if I can figure it out.
