I'd say BF2 is a lost cause by now since they probably won't even release any more patches for it. If anything I would be petitioning to them to make sure it is in the upcoming BF3.

cnc3 is published by EA and it supports 1680x1050. Is that the only game?

Yeah, but FOV doesn't matter as much in a RTS game. EA is yet to release a FPS that has true widescreen support.

idk why it's so hard for game developers to support widescreen resolutions. Supposedly in battlefield EA dosent want it becuase it gives widescreen gamers an advantage which is bullcrap becuase even counter strike source, which is way more competitive supports widescreen and theres no advantage.

I didn't even read the part regarding donation. Although, I do remember EA promising native ws support for 2142. Way back when

No widescreen support because it would give you an advantage is a stupid reason to not support it. Having a faster computer is an advantage. Better internet is an advantage. Better keyboard and gaming mouse is a better advantage. You pay more to play more. I would find it hard to believe at all that someone would not allow widescreen support because they would have an advantage.
