I downloaded FH2 and is a quality mod and great. Now to my topic. It seems that the only populated servers are the 170+ ping, all the 100 or less ping servers seem to be empty or have 5 to 13 people playing. And im in east coast US. Is this mod only popular only in canada and europe? Because I see these 170+ ping servers with 58/64 and 62/64 players and makes me want to cry. Also it seems that when a patch comes out, there is plenty of servers with alot of people playing and then it dies out in a week or two with 3 servers populated and the rest empty. What you guys think? I want to hear your opinions.

This mod is way more popular in Europe. Therefore when Euro's are awake=way more players online. If you are in EST, then you should have plenty of people to game with. Use the toolbox to find out where a server is located but don't worry about the ping. Latency to the server doesn't mean as much nowadays as it used to. With some patience, you shouldn't have a problem playing on the Euro servers. Wait until Normandy comes out, then the Yanks wil come running to play as one of their kind. Unfortunately they need their ego stroked to come online and play. The numbers are best on the weekends for multiple servers but personally I always join the biggest game going regardless of where they are (except for the Slovak server). Numbers are growing with each patch but North American player numbers are not growing as fast. See you on the battlefield...

I play on servers sometimes with 300 ping and don't feel much of a lag. Don't worry about the ping, that's old videogame history.

I often play at Wolfgaming, it's the same distance like you playing at euro servers, >150 ping, no issues here. Just play and enjoy it.

One of the FH devs was on a while back saying that latency over 200 only becomes an issue when there's too many high pingers but that the Bf2CC should filter the worst guys out by kicking them off the server anyways. I think server browsers shouldn't even show ping, it's useless and most people don't even grasp the basics behind it.

You should come online sometime and shoot Lobo, he's an easy target :lol: and if he's on your side, he is a good squaddie too.

Easy?, I am easy because I am always running to the enemy trench meanwhile you are hiding in your holes, chickens =p

But oh man, what a blast when I kill all the enemies in that trench with a cigarette in my mouth crossed by a scar and the barrel of my trusty tommygun on fire.

Do you remember the last video of Return to Castle Wolfenstein?, that's me.

Lol, I have forgotten all other games since Fh2 release. Yes, I have rushed the trenches with you alongside and it is fun. I say you are easy to kill because you are on attack, much closer target for me to hit.:) I prefer grenades as I don't want to see the faces of the men that I kill, so I say many thanks for the No.73 Thermos grenade. I got many kills on Tobruk last night from noobies who wouldn't run away from my ball of fire. Best blast radius ever.

Yeah, but always hide in the trench after you throw it, that goddamned thermos of doom. The britons for sure were crazy dudes with iron balls if they used that thing IRL
