  1. Same here. Had to pay the post office another £15.76 to collect the game. £7.16 customs charge and £8 post office rip off fee. OOPS, I meant to say handling fee It has been discussed to death on these forums in the past and it is a chance you need to take if you want a hard copy. All but one of the games I've bought from BF had incurred a customs charge. I usually wait until I want three or four games/modules as you save on postage and only get hit with the handling fee once. Pre orders with limited edition items can be the exception if you already have everything else. Unless you can get some kind person in the US to post it to instead of direct from BF then we are stuck with the extra $22 or so on top of the purchase price. Depends on how you want the game. I personally prefer a hard goods copy as I am old fashioned. Or is that just old? Also my internet speeds are poor at the best of times and slower than an asthmatic snail the rest of the time. At least I know I am supporting two businesses with every purchase. Make me feel good inside. Not. "No plan survives contact with the next turn button"
  2. Don't forget "yellow snow" "No plan survives contact with the next turn button"
  3. I hope they do. Most of the things you are looking for can be achieved with the existing game. No module required. Somebody will probably mod the ground textures and make scenarios. I would be looking for something more than that if I was to spend money on the product. Especially with the cost of shipping to Europe and import fees. Yes I know I can D/L the modules but what is the point of a nice limited edition case if you have nothing nice to put in it. Normandy, Italy etc. What is it you expect when the conflict setting is Ukraine and the story behind that setting? West v Russia or Polar Bears v Penguins? Unless I'm reading a different manual then it's West v Russia. Polar Bears are hibernating just now, interesting premise though. I want my Marines and Nato Forces now, now, now!!!!! As I said, start a poll. " No plan survives contact with the next turn button"
  4. Isn't that what we're doing? You seem to be the one with problem by deciding that you should get what you want at the expense of others. Scenarios are available for free thanks to the talented scenario designers. You won't need to buy this. Extra units and content usually are not free. You will need to buy this. I'm sure BF have a plan (a bit like the Cylons) and part of that plan will be to release modules that will appeal to the majority to sell as many as possible. No chance of my Ninja's. Lets face facts. European Nato units will probably be used as they are nearest to the region and are already conducting large scale exercises in Poland in case the unthinkable becomes a reality. Also the US Marines are the only force capable of launching an (unsupported by any other nation) attack from the sea. Bear in mind that Nato is a rather large organisation so it would be good to see some new nations. (Aussie barbeque mod anyone? ) As most people on here crave reality it is quite possible we will see these modules. I could be wrong. I don't know what is planned. Might be the North Koreans for all I know. Personally, I don't care who does the fighting as long as I'm not just buying a rehash of units from the base game and a couple of scenarios. Why not start a poll? "No plan survives contact with the next turn button"
  5. You're absolutely correct. Sod everybody else. BF, please only make modules that appeal to individuals. Personally I want a Ninja or Wizard of Oz Flying Monkey module before any stupid Nato troops come along and spoil things. "No plan survives contact with the next turn button"
  6. You mean like the Americans? "No plan survives contact with the next turn button"
  7. You really like to prove people right. "No plan survives contact with the next turn button"
  8. Hey Steve, My post was not aimed at you so why do you feel the need to reply and belittle your paying customers? You know, the people who keep you in business. My post was a reply to Sburke's ill informed post. A lot of people had issues with how this turned out. All you ever get on here is if you don't like it then go away. No one can complain or reply to the forum mouth pieces you seem to support so much. I was actually criticising another poster for their smug attitude. Any complaints I have had are mainly aimed at the people on these forums who think your company can do no wrong and apparently you are now one of them. If you want to take people's money then you need to be prepared for criticism if they are unhappy. It wasn't my fault this went so wrong yesterday. I buy your games because I like them and like to support your company. Just check out my last order for this and other stuff. If you no longer want my business then please let me know. From the email I received: ATTENTION! We are offering these early downloads exclusively to pre-order customers as a reward for your trust and loyalty. Obviously loyalty is a one way street in your eyes. Perhaps you should include a no complaints clause in you licencing agreement. Anyway, off to try out the game to see if it's as good as you think it is. "No plan survives contact with the next turn button"
  9. Damn. Just noticed my spelling mistakes. Can't edit now. Lack of sleep and in a hurry = poor gramerr & speeling. "No plan survives contact with the next turn button"
  10. 1. NO, the problems were magnified because they released it to non pre orders too soon. 2. No logic in this statement because the problem would still be there if everybody waited until tomorrow unless the server issue was fixed. In which case this should have in place before announcing release to the world. Maybe we should have drawn lots. Somebody has to start downloading. 3. BF's server wasn't ready to cope. 4. Point 1 applies. 5. Despite the fact that pre orders should have been allowed at least a 24 hour window, the non pre orders have paid their money as well and are entitled to be annoyed. 6. Thing obviously were not fine. 7. Be better prepared. BF knew how many pre orders there were. What did they expect to happen? Again, point 1 applies. 8. It's somebody's fault. 9. See point 8. You obviously have had the game and these issue didn't apply to you. This is the second post I am aware of were you think it is funny. What exactly is funny? I know what is funny to me. It is that you are the only one of the usual suspects who has jumped to BF's defence so far. There are usually so many more ready to hop on the bandwagon. People are entitled to be annoyed when they have waited for hours on a download to complete only for it to constantly fail without the condescending attitude of some people on these forums. I finally have the download after 15 hours from initial attempt. Off to work now. Hilarious. "No plan survives contact with the next turn button"
  11. No, but I find this amusing. ATTENTION! We are offering these early downloads exclusively to pre-order customers as a reward for your trust and loyalty. In your best interest, please do not tell anyone else about it, or the download servers may be flooded with a lot of new customers, robbing you of your ability to download the game quickly. We didn't need to tell anybody about it as BF did it for us approximately 1 Hr after the emails were sent out. "No plan survives contact with the next turn button"
  12. Nightmare. Time to grab the pitchforks and light the torches. (insert smiley face here) "No plan survives contact with the next turn button"
  13. Cross everything. As I said, I got to 96% before I lost the connection (and almost the will to live). "No plan survives contact with the next turn button"
  14. Then why did BF release the game to the general masses so shortly after the pre order link went live? I'm pretty sure that not every one who pre ordered was sitting by their PC. They didn't really gain anything in the long run. There should have been at least a 24 hour window to avoid all this. Live and learn. I suppose you have the game? Any good? "No plan survives contact with the next turn button"
  15. I know how you feel. 96% I was so close. No cigar. I feel as if I have put my boxer shorts on back to front and touched my toes with this pre order. "No plan survives contact with the next turn button"
