    Don't get me wrong, I'm glad we're finally getting a good game but their attitude IS pathetic
    I understand you are pissed about how they screwed up with the first game, and (apparently) screwed up damage control and generally failed to act like decent people afterwards. And I see how that was pathetic.

    But I don't see anything wrong or pathetic so far in what they are doing surrounding the BL2 launch. Is the robot letter positing them as "PC gamers best friends" whose shit doesn't stink? To the contrary, the letter (humorous as it may be) acknowledges that they fucked up the last time, are not in good standing with the PC crowd, and want to do better.

    I'm not going to argue on there not being a server browser, but matchmaking with skill is possible, definitely. There's not a lot on it, but Xbox Live has some algorithms that analyse, well, a lot. Much more than we may realise. With Halo: Reach, Bungie talked about how they then built on top of that their own algorithms. It wasn't perfect, but 95% of the time I played, it was with people who were around about my skill, definitely. I'm sure they did a dev blog on this, but I wouldn't want to go sifting through all the pages.

    What I'm saying is, it's possible, but no, it's not usually accomplished.

    Except it doesn't actually fix the problem. The FOV tweak is undone by the game every time you get into (or is it out of?) a vehicle, and possibly every time you come out of zoom, meaning you have to bash the button that fixes the FOV almost constantly. When the only other option is to get nauseous playing the game, then you can see why a lot of people are pissy about it.

    Before they try and make good on BL2, I'd prefer they went and fixed BL1. I'm not buying 2 - perhaps ever, or at the very least not until it's on sale for some ridiculously small amount. If they fixed 1 then I'd consider getting 2 on release 'cause I've got friends I could co-op with, but as it stands they aren't getting that kind of money from me.

    You forgot "every time you sprint," the game is almost constantly resetting the FoV in normal play. The best you can do is map "change FoV" to "w," but even then you're constantly having the FoV "pop." It doesn't bother me, but I'm not sensitive to these things the way a lot of folks are (and I'm grateful for that).
