Mine is fine.

I think you bought some fake and broken version of the game, like Battlewarriors: Wrong Company 2.

Guess me and Vin bought the wrong game, because it doesn't work. I will always love the "I don't have a problem, so one doesn't exist" sense of BS from some of you. Read some other forums. 90% of the players (AT LEAST) are having issues. I still cannot use my M1 Garand because DICE doesn't know how to make a game.

I agree with Hunt.

The game itself is great and a lot of fun. But the menus and the server connection issues are terrible and inexcusable.

The server browser still:
- takes forever to find all the servers
- doesn't give ping/connection info.
- makes it difficult to find specific servers
- doesn't give you the option to connect to a specific IP (or does it?)
- can't add specific servers to your favorites (i.e. via IP)
- friends list takes forever to add people (you can send a request, but it takes hours for them to receive it)
- sometimes you don't receive friend requests at all

90%? Really? Based on a forum used almost exclusively for venting about issues?

Well practically everyone has had connection issues since it was a server-side bug that was kicking people left and right.

As for the menus being slow, it may be dependent on the region (assuming multiple servers).

Just got booted to desktop while refreshing server data. AWESOMESAUCE!

But nope... some of you don't have the same problems, so it MUST be on my end.

Guess the 360 never breaks either if yours hasn't.

I have been booted, I have had connection issues, etc. But they are not UNIMAGINABLY horrifying if you have some patience, at least in my experience. The game works once you get into a server and it doesn't boot you within the first 30 seconds. Should we have to put up with those mistakes? Absolutely not. Will I continue to put up with it because the game is awesome? F*ck yea!

We aren't denying the game is great. But these problems should not be there. There's really no reason for them at all.

+1. Especially considering the beta was extremely stable and bug free for me. So free beta = few bugs, 50 dollar game = crapton of bugs that make the game nearly unplayable for me about 75% of the time?

Just now I was in the game and tried to refresh servers... it didn't boot me to desktop this time, it just said "TEXT" where EVERYTHING should be. Server name = Text, players Text/Text, Ping = TEXT. WTF? Seriously retarded game.
