motive?

It's simply to give people what they want so they can make good sales on the next CnC game. I can already see most of the "F*** YOU EA!!" threads on the boards being replaced with "Thanks EA".

Once RA3 comes out you won't see anymore support for ZH and if they haven't brought back the WoL servers by then I highly doubt we'll ever see them again.

The real question is, after satisfying all the Zero-Hour community, how long will they wait to announce Red Alert 3?

My bet would be in the near future (after the release of the patch). That would certainly make the most sense from a marketing perspective.

Heh, won't be shocked that within the month after the patch they will reveil Red Alert 3, its not that uncommon to release big gaming news around March actually, and the patch is a nice touch, hopefully though, the patch will actually fix things as well and not just a shallow marketing ploy for RA3 Happy .

Just be aware that this patch will not:

a) make zero hour a good game
b) make it in any way balanced
c) remove cheaters
d) make it appealing to more people
e) herald in an unprecedented era of support

Heh, well shall see jacko, though I agree with e. Happy

I agree with everything except for "e", but you have to admit that the chances of EA cleaning up its act are very slim.

While techincally this belongs in the comments for the probable changes thing. All the talk about it is here. I just spent a few minutes reading the probable changes patch, and its a lot of changes. I think most of them are a good idea.

At least I can now play the damn game at last. With the previous patch the game wouldn't even load up on my comp.Unhappy
