Speaking of micro expansions

A friend of mine and his brother decided to play BF2 this weekend, so I reinstalled it. This add pops up out some kind of euro-force. Its annoying, every time you start it, its there. I think it broke the XFire join a friend’s game feature.

Anyway, is this mini-expansion for 9.99 worth it?

It sure would be nice if that ad would vanish, since I play BF2 in Windows 2000 and can’t even buy Euro Force.

I boot Special Forces occasionally, but I suspect it may have been a waste of money. I would really like to see some 3rd-party mods.
