BF2 Great game, crap play. sounds like a contradiction but it's true. I love the game , graphics are s**t hot. sound terrific, weapons cool and vehicles spanking.
But it's let down on 2 counts, as opposed to BF1942 you can't play a campaign on BF2 as you could with the first and DC mod. (shame).
Secondly (and in my opinion the most frustrating), is the fact that when the game loads and you want to go online you spend all your time trying to find a server that's not full , has people online or has a low ping.
I spent half an hour last night trying to find a server that would allow me to join, even when it said it was half full (i.e 18/32 players) I tried to join but it then kicked me off saying 'server is full. try another'. I had a list of servers that where full , some where empty , some half full. all kicked me off saying ' sorry full'..
I found it annoying to say the least. I managed to get onto one server last night only to have a ping of 170ish and juddery gameplay. I wouldn't mind but I have 2MB broadband and a shit-hot pc with 2gig ram, 256mb nvidia 6800gt Graphics card, audigy soundslab and P4 32 CPU, so I know it's not my PC causing the slow down, but a lack of servers, maybe it's just that the game is still being bought , maybe more servers will come on line.
COME ON EA, GET YOUR FINGER OUT AND MAKE MORE SERVERS (especially in EUROPE)... :cool: :moon: :cool: :0wned:
The server information is as current as the last "refresh". If you refreshed the server list, and then spend 5 minutes scrolling down the list, by the time if select the server, the information displayed would be outdated by 5 minutes. Just set up all the filters, click on sort by ping, click refresh and join the first available server with lowest ping.
I have to say, i do do all the filters and it is still VERY hard to get in Ranked servers. There is just not enough Ranked servers (That dont crash every 2 maps). I have no problem with no ranked servers i can get on fine most of the time, but i just want to get the medals, ribbons, guns to make it more intresting then it already is.
But one more thing that is pissin me off is the Laggy server browser. In any other game i do not get this lag looking for servers with BF2 .... its all i get unless i filter it down to like 10 servers.... but i want more choice dont you ? i think EA need to talk to Multiplay about getting mor UK/Euro ranked servers.
For some reason my filter has a hard time getting rid of all the full games. EA farted and a shitty server browser was born.
No, I bet its gamespy's fault. POS gamespy... :vikki:
don't you mean gayspy?
suppose that eventually someone will release a mod which will make a campaign, so u probably just got to wait till people star releasing the mods
Yea it may be gamespy's fault but who implemented their technology into their game? EA.
I think the problem is more in the way the in game browser was designed, which is one #$^@ poor layout. I have recently found another problem. When I go back to the browser after leaving a game, the broswer will not properly refresh servers. Most I get is a fraction, with the pings at 0. Last night it was so frustrating I eneded up having to restart BF2 just to find a game. Supposedly the new patch is going to address this....supposedly....wait and see. wait and see
