Battlefield 2 Problems

Well recently, i played quite a few Battlefield Games and I realised after playing it for two days and accumulating over 1200 points and a few medals here and there that i wasnt receiving any points at all on my scoresheet. This happen to me before, so i tot by a day or two, it would update my stats.

To my horror, it hasnt. It was not long till i realised tht it has become a global issue and a lot of players since 16 June were notable to have their stats updated.

(Yet another crap shit thing due to EA Games, and im not surprised.) I just wanna get to the Rank Lieutanant and start playing on my own time. But now im stuck at Gunnery Sergeant, just a couple of thousand points away from the next rank. Ugh. I want my RANK and BADGES!!!

On the issue of EA's mismnagement on rectifying problems, here is a comment of one of the players who posted in the forum of a BF2 Stat Site.

"They keep making the games more graphic intense and expensive and all the time they just fly by all the bugs.
EA Beta guy: Oh I was on Karkand and walked into so many walls. This has to be fixed.
EA Dev: Damn I can't fix that by the deadline. Just don't tell anyone.
EA Beta guy: (Loading MPGH) Your secret is safe with me
Those that don't know mpgh just google it. Nothing there matter for bf2 anyways.
These big companies push what they can out the door and know it has bugs. We the consumer are left paying for BETA crap. When BF2 first came out it was so buggy. I didn't even buy it or support it for like a year after what I saw with my friends stuff.
It's crazy how they can just expect consumer to be happy with what they got. Sorry but if I was out to eat and ordered a well done steak and it came to me still bleeding the cook might end up in the same shape.
Just sucks these big companies have the money to buy out all these small designers or back them. Commercialism just plain sux. Everyone is out to make make make but yet when does society ever receive?
Look at gas prices, EXXON, Mobil, Shell ETC ETC are making billions. All while struggling people get their cars repoed cause they had to pay the gas card lol
Sorry for my rant but this stuff irritates me"

It really does make certain sense. But like Exxon, Mobil and Shell. EA is here to stay and make us Consumers of their Modern Warfare games. But still, it doesnt prevent me for being quite piss at such an problem that is happening.

Well i guess im off to do my work again. And it will be doing up my models now and tabletop modern military wargames for now for me. :p

Building in Progress...

Hi there again. Since the end of my mock exams, i decided to take a breather this weekend and having the spare time i was given, i decided to continue with making the Ticonderoga VLS cruiser. I have completed till step 15 and have left 2 remaining steps to the completion of the kit. Wif this done, i will have progress alot for military modelling projects this year.

Similar to what i have mention on my other hobby blog, i have takenan interest in improving my diorama and i have already come up wif a few ideas wif regards to my military collectibles. I will be using some new diorama i have collected and on top of tht browse around the web to search for ready-made diorama tt are in scale wif my collectibles.

As for the model ship pictures i have, i will most definitely post my good ones to for viewing and perhaps get more fans and peeps to see my webbie. :) The amazing hobby blogs of which many tags but so lil visitors. I do sincerely wanna increase my hits on my blogs and will be more active in the Modelwarship forums as a starter.

And so while i prepare for my next batch of feautres for the remaining year, I will be continuing on my Ticonderoga VLS Cruiser which i will eventually brand its ship name. And soon after, continue wif my other vehicles and remaining projects.

Till the next time. Im signing off today :D

The Spirit above

Well a feature for u all before i go on another evn longer drought. It will be a while till the next feature. Let alone new pictures updated to the gallery. Life has been rough and so, naturally everything else is affected, along with the construction of my Ticonderoga VLS.

Today's feature is the B2 Spirit Bomber. With a cost value of $2.2 Billion dollars, the B2 spirit is by far one of the most expensive planes built in the world. With its stealth like ability and high payload of bombs. It is a "bomber unseen". It has the capability of taking both nuclear ,non nuclear bombs and guided bombed alike. The B2 Spirit is a subsonic bomber and even though it is not able to defend against Surface to Air missiles or air threats, its stealth ability makes it to a pure invisibility to radar.

Another capability of the B2 is taking on long hours sortie mission and being highly automated, and unlike single-seat fighters, one crewmember can sleep, use a flush toilet or prepare a hot meal while the other monitors the aircraft.

The B2 Spirit truly lives up to its name.

The Ninja of the Sky

The B2 Spirit

I like the nice lighting of the picture. In any case, things are still looking good and well in p rogress for my military models. I will definitely be able to achieve what i have set out for this year. And so, till the next feature. Stay active and keep talking on the tag board.
Cya ;)
