I like the fact that booster packs are included. Should be at least some fun games when it's released before the game dies.

Cool, I approve.

EF/AF is an excellent idea. I bought them when they were released and I have no qualms with them being released for free now.

Ooh, does that mean the BH can actually be used as an offensive chopper?

we'll see if hit detection is fixed, but those two changes above are well worth it.

At least booster packs will be played now. Hell, server hosts may even add them to regular rotation.

WOW FREE AF AND EF!
too bad it will revive the EURO whoring and team stacking to get the lone EURO medal.

these changes are although AAA worked fine before;in fact AAA worked better than A2A (also never noticed F35 lock delay was different )
but let the ADD bitching begin (you know who you are)

Well crawling past clays doesnt work, so that sucks.
I don't think hitreg improved, prone accuracy drop sucks (<== or I'm suddenly sucky )
Guess I'll go back to more hopping and less proning...

1.50 improvement as to the maps, not to the gameplay
