despite (or because of) all these nay-sayers i want to state this:
FH2 beats FH1 in every single discipline except variety and air combat!
and i bet the next releases (most likely a patch correcting some minor bugs and including some new maps followed by a whole new frontline with the next major release in a few month) will bring back loads of players!
i simply wanted to mention this, even with the knowledge that a negative topictitle gets a lot more attention at the moment.
Yeah. I agree with you. Its great fun to play and Im sure there will be more servers and players as new content comes along. :)
It is great. Every saturday waw has been the best example of organized team play, and really putting the system to use. Theres no shortage of players. :flag:
well, europe never had THAT FH2 playerproblem that some comments here suggest.
its obvious that US players insist on their forces included! when that is done i guess you gladly play other forces too, but it seems to be very important that your country is included.
as for the US servers, especially WOLF (which problems are regularily mentioned), well, reading their initial forum reactions about the FH2 release in december and january, i doubt they did themself AND FH any favor. there were so many complaints and strange comparisons to former glory FH1 times, even from lead members, that i wonder that there are still that many players online.
comparing a first release on a new engine with a developed product of many years like BF42s FH1 is wrong!
FH1 is past, and if you like FH support FH2! i think you wont regret it!
I agree, it seems to me that the european player base seems to be more mod friendly than the US one in the BF2 community. I notice alot more players in the evenings GMT time than I do in the early hours. FH2 is brilliant I will never be able to go back to FH1, even if it is just the north african theatre it has so much more depth to it. Infantry is better, tanks are better, air is better and the arty is better. Most of all the maps are just amazing to play on and look at, there's so much detail to them it makes them ten times better to play on than FH1's maps. Thanks devs for all the hard work but don't stop! you don't get a break yet! ;)
I think FH2 is what I have always wanted in a WWII game. Perfect balance of realism with fun and playability on top of really awesome graphics. Perhaps all the people that hate it are running it on crappy systems.
1st post here, long time reader and FHer (aka =HPSF=Face & Warren Cuccurullo) finally got around to registering.
This is the only thing I will be playing for the forseeable future, because really, what else is there?
Thanks for all the great hard work the Devs put in. So long waiting and the only thing that isn't what I expected is the player base. I'm doing what I can to get people online in the U.S.
Earwigger;4233285FH2 sure is great! I can't wait for the Eastern Front.
Well you won't last long.:p But yeah FH2 is great.
great thread. I rather post here than contribute to it's evil twin doomsday thread ;) I've played FH2 from day 1 and can't get bored of it (although we only run one map/24, which kind of speaks for itself).
I love the models, the skins, the animations, the map layouts, hell I even love the desert. I've never really been into FH so I couldn't care less about the FH vs FH2 comparisons (which imho are mostly nonsense anyway)
And even though the server may not fill as easily as it used to: a) noone expected the adhd kids to stay and b) I don't miss them I rather play only one night a week with decent ppl than having to spend every round sitting at the airfield warning/kicking muppets. Quantity ain't everything.
keep up the good work. public opinion may be a good source for inspiration but that's it. don't go hunting for player numbers. you've proven to know what you're doing.
