The BF2 engine is great. The game could be alot better if not for EA but the engine is great.

BF2 still has a bug that you can be shot through wall, and view point problems also.
We took that while testing some stuff with TeamSpeak too..
charlesbianaltho i play mostly on wolf, which is alot more casual and alot less german nationalism on it, id say that yea, this stuff is pretty common. wolf gets bashed for being filled with a bunch of "non-history appreciating noobs" but id pick that anyday over guys who flame you if u dont know what the model number on the canteen the germans used was. most of the community are pretty cool guys, just dudes who want to have fun and like ww2 and the history behind it, but theres also those who take this game as an obsession and frankly, its sad sometimes to see some people trying to emulate some kind of authority in this game because they have none in real life.
omg this is so true. I get this game is suppose to have a grittier, less arcady feel, but I didn't download this mod to do WWII reenactments. Fact is the majority of the people that download any mod just wanna play the game in a new way. Who cares if they don't care about actual WWII history or want to fight the map the same way some old dead dudes fought it 60+ years ago, it's all about having fun.
Of course that doesn't mean idiot behavior like base camping or bug abusing should be allowed but for crying outloud, I didn't see anything on this website that said being a wwII history major who was a nazi SS soldier in a past life was a prerequisite.
I hope many new players floch to FH because of FH2 since afterall, a community that stagnates and doesn't get new members is living on borrowed time.
BF:1942 has a viewpoint problem. You always looked out of your chest in that game.
I guess in BF2 you also look out of your chest.
Damn Dirty ApeOk, decided to post again after a while just to say that I think it's really the other way around. Forgotten hope is full of people who complain about regular players, yet the regular player gets the short end of the stick. I enjoyed FH at first but getting more and more into contact with clanners, I'm really starting to dislike this community. I've been kicked from servers for nothing at all, no warning what so ever. For instance I once asked a server admin how the slots worked on their FH server, because I got kicked two times when joining just after entering, prolly because clanpeeps joined. After a very short and angry reply I got kicked and actually banned ( yeh great irony ) and this is just ridiculous. Before all of you continue to diss out normal players who try to learn how to play fh properly, please look to yourselves and see if you haven't turned into an arrogant bastard who thinks he's god because your name has 11th panzer regiment or whatever in front of it. Almost all servers usually play the same maps over and over, why? Because the kingtiger is on it, and basically this tank is the wet dream for every nerd who always wanted to join the SS. Seriously I can't count the many times I've seen people scream on forums like babies that somebody took "their tiger", kicking everybody from the axis team cause their clan is superduperelite and regular players should go allies cause they suck. I actually tried out a clan myself, "we do realistic gameplay" hmm, sounds fun. Only to find out they kept referring to me like I was an actual german soldier out of the game!!! I can understand teamwork, ranking in-game fine. But godsakes don't shout at me to go true everyday life as a German soldier, cause that's just sad. Leave the game where it is, in the game itself. Not saying every clan is like this but just shows how sad it can get. Since there aren't that many servers out there, most run by clans, it's really hard for new players to play this game. I've read the manual and it covers the basics but nothing more. You need to learn this mod true playing it, if all you can find are servers with admins who kick you for nothing at all and with players who think they should have joined the German army in 1938 which continue to be abusive then people just won't play it. I've quit playing for about two weeks now and every time I try to start playing again it's the same servers with the same people who drive nothing but tigers. How can you expect this mod to be played by more people with this bs. You prolly don't care, fh2 will have the same bunch of people who are playing now, no more no less. A shame really, if you disagree and you feel your server is friendly and nice and you treat regular players with respect please pm me to tell me cause I've given up hope.
I completely agree. But you see, the world is full of idiots. don't get worked up about the clans, they're just sad. They take things far to serious, they're hypocrites and they need to feel high and mighty in the computer games because they have an inferiority complex in real life. I've played on clan servers for months on end and got on well with everyone. Then an admin had a bad day and kicks me for killing him fair and square. I ask him why and he swears at me and bans me. This sort of thing happends to regular players all the time. Moral of the story. I don't play on clan servers any more, they're scum. If there are no public servers I don't play.:cya:
