Let's not flame here guys (I know it's not all of you, this is directed at the few who are). It's one thing to be upset/ambivalent or voice real concerns about this game (or the previous one). It's quite another to bash other users of this forum. So let's be civil, even while we disagree.
Everybody understand? Good.
Now that the beta is "free" we should be sending all this feedback directly to Pandemic as well, where it can do the most good.
PS: They really better fix those "hide in wall" exploits on the maps before release. I hope this isn't the reason why they're supposedly nixing certain maps (ignore the problem rather than fix it, so the game suffers).
