Ooh, so we can play with all the haxx0rz and get pwn3d by aimbots and have connection problems?

I MIGHT try it out, probably just so I can smirk and head back to Bad Company 2.

Apparently, Activision ****ed up, and the only way you can download it is by using the old UI for now.

BF BC2 has become noobtube central. When BF BC2 won't let me online I have no problems connecting and playing MW2. Different game, but there are just as many cheaters and t00bers on BF BC2, don't kid yourselves...
