Personally I love the commrose and really missed having one in BC2. Sure some people can play without it and think they are in prefect communication with strangers but its not the same. In BF2142 the commrose was a huge draw for me to play with strangers and the numbers of people who would toss out a "thanks" when you revived them or gave them ammo was awesome.
It really only take a few milliseconds to call out thanks or to ask a group of medics for med pack.
My problems never came from the utility of it, but came from the fact that people think it will help when playing with strangers. I have stood right next to people spamming Q with my soldier verbally screaming at them "GIVE ME SOME AMMO" over and over, and people don't even get that. I have stood in front of Medics with almost no life bar just looking at them, and they don't ever bat an eye at me.
The Commo Rose is an ok idea, but if you are playing with friends, you will just tel lthem over TS, Vent, or Skype. And if you are playing on Strangers, it just feels liek a massive waste of time to open Commo Rose as people need to have a hand attached to their monitor that slaps them when they need to help out a teamate. Commo Rose just isn't flashy enough, if a Soldier is screaming at you and you can hear his voice and oyu do nothing, I just don't see how Commo Rose will fix that. Plus I play Core mode where a minimap has big icons for people that need health and Ammo, if people aren't smart enough to watch that (which it seems most aren't) I wouldn't bother depending on them for anything, you will just get let down.
Gaming with strangers is simply that, gaming with strangers. Usually they have their own objectives and don't care to help you out. I just don't feel Commo Rose was worth the time to make. But if it didn't take them long then I guess thats fine.

Did the same, no email yet, but the game remains in my Origin and I had got Early Access to the beta from it.
The 1st and 2nd one are I think over a week old, 3rd probably is too, Kevinheirz had posted them I think, just maybe hadn't seen the 3rd one.
