I want to write these companies and MOD teams an e-mail asking for an addition in an upcoming expansion of this game. Obviously not being more important than bug fixes etc, but hopefully important enough to be considered; regarding adding female models and radiovoices.

I know there are some of you out there who agree with me, and a lot who don't, but I'm writing this for those of you that do.

If you agree that this game would be better and that it would add to it, possibly even get a bigger player base by adding females, even if just as supporting forces and medics etc. Then please write me an e-mail, 1 or 2 sentences will do, with why YOU think they would add value. Maybe reasons would convince them more than just names. If I can get enough people's opinions, hopefully we can at least get a response!


Summing it up, please add;
1-2 lines with why, your name/nickname and country you live in, and send it to: [email protected]
If you would also like a version of the petition sent to you, please also add an e-mail adress.

Thanks a lot guys, and girls!

Please include this program, and or website on any future mods for BF2.. I find the program indispensible, and constantly use it.


This is what was said on Petition.. Keep up the good effort.

Well my wife plays online with me just about every night, and I know she would appreciate having a female model and voice to use.

So it is instead fair to force females to play as males? I don't see your logic.

I think its kind of a silly idea, considering in the US women arent allowed in combat.  This game is all about combat.  I doubt the middle east would allow women to fight too because they have such a low opinion of women, perhaps they could strap one in a suicide jeep and make them drive it into an enemy base.

As far as the chinese go, parents would probably send their daughters to war hoping they will die so they can have another shot at having a boy.  So maybe that might work out.

btw, just to make the game pc by adding females would also be pretty idiotic considering that who really pays attention to the skin your playing as.  If you are worried about that, go play the sims or something.

Pretty sure that DICE has much larger problems on their hands than this, like fixing the game for instance?

I would rather them not add females in at all if they were just going to add them into the support roles.

Exactly what I was thinking. 

He must not be from the states or pay attention to the news.  Guess he never heard of Jessica Lynch either.

As far as I am aware, Jessica Lynch wasn't in a direct combat unit, a support unit rather, that became engaged.

that guy is right, women are NOT allowed in the employ of any combat arms unit or put into a situation of direct combat. i know this game is based around marine units, but to demonstrate my point here are a list of US ARMY occupations that are closed to women-

11B Infantryman
11C Mortar Infantryman
11H Anti-tank Infantryman
11M Bradley Fighting Vehicle Infantryman
12B Combat Engineer
12F Engineer Tracked Vehicle Crewman
13B Cannon Crewmember
13C Automated Fire Support Systems Specialist
13E Cannon Fire Direction Specialist
13F Fire Support Specialist
13M Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS) Crewmember
13P MLRS/LANCE Operations Fire Direction Specialist
13R Field Artillery Firefinder Radar Operator
14J Air Defense Command Control Computer Communication and Intelligence Tactical Operations Center Enhanced Operator/ Maintainer

14R Bradley Linebacker Crewmember
14S Avenger Crewmember
16P Chaparral Crewmember
18B Special Operations Weapons Sergeant
18C Special Operations Engineer
18D Special Operations Medical Sergeant
18E Special Operations Communications Sergeant
19D Cavalry Scout
19K Armor Crewman
45E M1A1 Abrams Tank Turret Mechanic
45T Bradley Fighting Vehicle System Turret Mechanic
45T Bradley Fighting Vehicle System Turret Mechanic
63T M2-3 Bradley Fighting Vehicle System Mechanic
96R Ground Surveillance Systems Operator

and these are just basic MOS (military occupational specialties.) since marine occupations are similar in many ways, and the standards are closely related, i will have to agree.

besides, the idea of having a bunch of women running around playing war is just silly.

Information gotten from: http://www.ghostrecon.net/html/e3.htm

In single player you will control a team of four, rather than six. This is in keeping with current Western military doctrines for fire team and patrol strengths in both Army and SF respectively.

There will be a total of eight skin, six male and two female. Remember the photo shoot of the girl in the uniform outside Red Storm that were posted here at GhostRecon.net earlier this year?!!! Also, to satisfy some sim fans out there, there is also medic support.
So yes in a game that is based losely on Real Life as depicted in Tom Clancy novels. There are two female models for soldiers in the game. All that the females playing this game want is a female model. Like the female models in Ghost Recon 2, they will look exactly like the male models except have a prettier face and be a tad shorter.

Here are some more pictures for you gotten from Ghost Recon 2 - http://www.ghostrecon.net/html/ss-gallery6.htm

Enjoy!

personally, I think it's only fair for the female gaming community to ask for appropriate models. I wouldn't mind playing with one myself..

And I would just love to hear EA's and Dices's answer to such a request.

But really, as some of the guys have said, as far as BF2 is concerned, EA and Dice probably have more important bugs to fix with the next patch.

In the past, fps developers have obviously designed their products for the standard fps gamer, who is predominantly male, I suppose. Moreover, the standard game developer is likely to be male, too ( just guessing here.. ). As the female gaming community is growing ( which I believe is what happens ) this should affect the ways games are designed.  It's simply a question of demographics and marketing strategies.

If they add female models you have to be able to have sex with them and it raises your health like in GTA, and if they put out they get a teamwork point.

I agree with B.Schuss. You have to remember that this is a game.. and we have both male and female gamers. If a female wish to play as a female soldier she should..
This is of course just my personal oppinion... on a technical view I'm well aware of why they use a "one sex" army. It would be double the work and they have bigger concernes than that.
I can say more but it would just be a more detailed view on what B.Schuss said.
