one of the things that most irks me about BF2 is that, being a late adopter of new games, I naturally lost any hope of being able to play as FuzzyBunny (Fuzzy Bunny, naturally, is right out, due to BF2's asinine and idiotic way of handling anything but alphanumeric characters...) So, some cocksmoking little 15-year-old with too much time on his hand, of course, right off the bat grabbed what most hot women consider to be the greatest online gaming nick of all time, leaving me, TheRealFuzzyBunny, and don't you forget it, high and dry.
I've been playing with this name online since 1992, and it's understandably a bit irksome, albeit a small nuisance.
Still, I was wondering, will we be forced to do the whole "log into the central EA uber-skynet-world-domination-server" thing to play FH2, or will it be possible for each server to have its own user DB? Could it, I hope, even be possible to have an entirely new frontend that won't ask you for a username/password or will this be too much to ask? Naturally, FH2 will have a far smaller subset of players than BF2, so it'd be kind of lame that the elite genius handsome 18"-penis-swinging studmuffins that we all are be forced to compete for good names with the unwashed, hyperactive, knuckle-dragging ignoramuses that populate the BF2 world.
We've also been given to understand that FH2 won't have ranks and medals and similar horse hockey, so there'd be no reason to track users. I know FH2 is based on the BF2 engine, but I have no far what this entails. So devs, any chance at all, since we're obviously way better than BF2, of having a totally decentralized, ubermasterserver-independent way as playing as whoever you want to be?
I doubt it.. btw hyphens works "Fuzzy-Bunny"
Tried that, also gone. Suck. Attempted pretty much every permutation imaginable, the whole system is flawed.

He it makes the game sell faster!
"OMFG BF2 is out, must by to create account or I will be too late! AHHHHHHHHHhh"
But yeah the login in sucks. Sure it might be easier for server admins to deal with trouble makers but still...
Yeah, i hate it too. Really dont understand why they had to change the whole system as they did... So far ive despised just about everything "new" about BF2
Same here, I'd love to get my hands on the thief that is now impersonating me on the servers.
How dare they abuse my fame!
My name was probably taken 25 minutes after release as the masses got home, installed and set up their accounts. I think Coca-ColaF.H. is free though.
Suprisingly my name was not used. Funny that.
But no FH uses the same authentication as BF2 and the rest of the mods. Try using the prefix for Fuzzy and username as Bunny if Bunny isn't taken yet as well.
The thing that annoys me the most is the actual logging in part. I started to play PR a month ago and so and I found out that DICE has obviously cut back on the login server funding as it takes about a minute (!) just to log in. Its especially frustrating because you don't need your stats to play the mods.
Eww, just though of something, if the log-in servers go down, no fh....
