Hi everyone, I have won a slot (1 of 100) from xfire to chat with Mr. Ben Smith. It starts at 5pm Pacific time (1am gmt) tonight, and he will be speaking for 1 hour.

If anyone has any suggestions of what I could ask him let me know.

I have PM'd Sander and Michael to see if they would like to be my 'proxy' as I feel they may be more productive with what to ask him.

Well maestro, its demanding 'cause its new and uses the latest shaders and high quality textures etc!!! DOnt think I'll be asking him that!

but Supreet, I will indeed be asking him why they put virtually no effort into single player, as it severly restricts people with either a dial up connection, or no internet at all from enjoying a game.

I'd like to know why an expansion pack was announced before the multiple, serious bugs that exist in the game were fixed :)

In all honesty, though, it is a very good game in many ways. I don't see games like this investing much in single-player mode, because that just not what it's about, at all. It is, however, unfortunate that their netcode excludes dialup players. Past games that supported moderate numbers of players (64 is the limit in BF2) had no trouble with dialup players; in fact sometimes the latency of dialup connections was better! (see Tribes 2).

Ask him if he can add a B-52 bomber so I can carpet-bomb every one on the map.

I'd like to know why DICE & EA decided to go with what many of us consider an updated version of Desert Dombat and not a true sequel to BF1942?

Can you ask him why the spawn screen continues to pop up after you die and there are no spawn points left?

Also can you say something about making the menu load time shorter, or allowing us to turn off the background video?

How about asking why the game does such a poor job of pre-loading textures, making it stutter on many machines with textures set to high.

Thats all I can think of right now.

Amazingly enough, my xfire wasn't working properly last night and I couldnt get involved in the chat!!

Just my luck.

I'm going to e-mail them and get a transcript of what they said and filter out the good stuff....

I'll let you all know when I have it
