As the title says I kinda miss that little screen. And it was already there. So why remove it?

Personally I would like to see it back in the game.

One extra click more or less at the beg. of each scn - easy decision.

Okay, thanks for the answer. But really? So no technical issue or something? If an extra click's the whole reason for removing it, I vote to re-instate it!

I'm quite sure that I NEVER read anybody EVER complaining about that screen being there, or the extra "mouse click"... :shock: :D

For me it was all about immersion: Whenever I got a new campaign/DLC, excited about the new scen, anticipation... and after the game has finally done loading the scen, I got the "black screen" with the Begin Briefing first. Expectations are rising...
Then I made sure to have my drinks, snacks and cigarettes ready before I FINALLY hit the "start briefing" button and see the new map, briefing and can begin playing... 8) :lol:

Come on, it was a nice feature, bring it back. Please.
