Oh right, it must just be me that expects when a product is on the shelf it is a) finished and b) works.

Not that it will be completed a few days or weeks later.

Perhaps the faults don't sit with TWI then? perhaps they fall at the feet of the inept beta testers who rather than bug testing sat all giddy because they were part of the secret inner circle.

I think you'll find that the thread I linked to shows quite a large portion of unhappy customers who the game just doesn't run right for and a seriously poor public relations reply from a TWI guy. You've failed to see that I didn't start this, I basically just linked to a post from a bunch of people disatisfied and highlighted the poorly worded reply from TWI.

I don't expect you'll understand any of this though because you are the ultimate TWI fanboi and so your opinion is very bias, I on the other hand have no association with any developer so don't have any axe to grind.
I understand that you have no argument other than to call people names..lol..
It seems your anger has yet again got the better of your reasoning..And you are beginning to sound rather more like a child spoiling for fight..lol
You keep making assumptions based upon opinions rather than facts..
You were not in the closed beta so your arguments about the closed beta testing are rather ridiculous..

And with regards to who started what, you did start this thread because you posted the link..Why post if you did not want to engage in some form of debate on these forums?
But it would seem your posts are more a case of venting some kind of gamers rage..lol
If the game is not to your liking why on earth are you getting so upset..
TWI are actively improving the game almost daily so why not encourage that support instead of trashing it..

How many games have you played over the last few years that did not require patching?
And how many games have you purchased that ended up being un-supported by its dev team?

The gaming world is not perfect nor are the people in it but we should at least try to encourage those who make an effort to improve things for their customers.

I have a decent system (i5-2500K and a 460 GTX) and I have not had too many issues so far.

I absolutely hate WW2 games and I could never get into them. Most I would last is 15 minutes and I would remove it. RO2 was the first WW2 game I actually played for hours. It's different and I like the cover system, blind fire, free aim etc. I still don't play it a lot but when I do I enjoy it much more then other WW2 shooters I've played.

I also like the fact TWI put thought into their anti-cheat policy instead of just contracting PB or VAC and thinking that's all they needed. Having both PB (3 levels) and VAC while also coding anti-cheat functionality into the game (ex speedhack kicker) really shows they want to make their game as cheat free as possible. It's also nice having steam and HLDS update the PB files for both server and client. TWI has raised the bar for anti-cheat in a game.

The game has issues and I hope TWI gets the game sorted because I really think it has a lot of potential and last for years to come. Based on my experience with the closed beta, I'm confident they will.
Actually just the fact that they went back to PB instead of following the recent trend of relying solely on VAC was a big plus for me despite the fact that Im not that keen on WW shooters myself. Small things matter and mean I am more willing to put up with a few bugs post release in return.
Also for a few days now when I start steam there seems to be an update for RO2 so I'm happy for the time being.

i5 2500k XFX hd4890 8GB RAM Win7 64bit - running the game on Ultra settings.

The graphics are awesome set on ultra settings, but if you have your settings all on medium like you said then yes, they won't look great to you so you shouldn't be blaming the game if your computer doesn't have the hardware to run it on max settings.
There is a difference between visual quality been bad and bad performance making the game unplayable. I agree 100% that the visual will scale up very well on this title alongside kick-ass hardware but still we see reports from a lot of users with those kick-ass rig and low FPS.

I havent yet finished to download the mega-patch that was just released, judging by the size im expecting Map changes to higher the FPS.

His remark was: "and the graphics aren't great. They are barely on par with 3 year old COD games"

which is a total lie and I called him up on it. I made my point.

Sorry? I don't get angry at postings on a forum, very pointless comment by you.

Yes, this is true, I wasn't, this is why as a consumer my opinions are free from bias. Unlike yourself who is kitted out in the full TWI cheerleader outfit with matching pom-poms.

Who has more to lose by stating the truth here? myself or you? Your points are pretty much void because we all know you have to keep greasing the pole, I wouldn't expect you to be objectional, how else will you see inside that inner circle in the future?

Quite bored by this pointless toing and froing so I'll just leave you with some Steam forum thread titles instead...

"Too many crashes"
"Performance?"
"TWI will optimize RO2 when hell freezes over"
"Am i the only player who DOESNT have any issues?"

Must just be me then who is imagining people having issues then.

That is NOT a 'total lie', as you call it. That is my EXPERIENCE and my OPINION when I compare how it looks. Graphics are inferior to other games, both new and old.

I have played on Ultra, and I don't think it looks that good. I play the game on Medium settings mainly because the game plays smoother (less lag).

Everyone, please stop now.

You don't like RO then don't post
You don't like COD then don't post
You don't like BFx then don't post
You don't like others then don't post

Anyone making anything personal attacks will get their account deleted, not banned - deleted.

This goes towards other members or developers. You can call out studios and publishers all you want.

There seems to be a vendetta against anyone who did not like "fill in past game here" and there are a lot of cheap shots towards these newer games. Remember your game will be next, you better like it as much as you give it.

Then again, there's going to be a lot less people around here soon.
