'[79thSgt-D;4599778']Would we be able to gather 114 players for an average FFA game? :p
for FH2 certainly ... :p imagine hill 107 stormed by 30 infantry !... lol. that would be hell fightings!

"It would be nice" and EA don't go together...
As said "You really think EA gives a fuck?=/ (rhetorical question)" says enough.
Not too mention youd need to accept some... I'll say it... SSM!!! Otherwise we'll have 20 people waiting for planes instead of the usual 15.
Im in o/. It's just a try, it takes 20-60s and doesent cost anything.. so why not?
Even if they asked me would you like over 100 players in a online match, I would say 'No, thanks'. Thats just to much. I already have enough fun with 20/40 people on a server :p
I didn't make it!
This is good. I hope Dice wises up and listens. Although. I doubt this will work. Plus, the lag would be to intense.. it wouldn't be any fun. 64 players is bad enough, 114 would be...
If they actually by some miracle went through with this, they'd have a hella lot of changes to make to the engine.
BF2 was originally intended to include 128 players. You never know though, maybe this is the reason they're delaying the patch, to make 128 player versions of all maps.
Remember though, a server with 128 players has to send out twice the amount of information to twice the amount of people. So the server would need 4x the bandwidth to do it. However, internet speeds have risen a lot in the past years, and I'm sure we'd see such servers popping up.
Originally, EA didn't want to do this because they'd be getting constant complaints of people getting hella mad FPS drop with 128 players. However, BF2 is 3 years old now. The average computer can easily run BF2 with 64 players (perhaps not FH2 though), and a high end computer should easily be able to tackle 128 players.
Personally I support this whole heartedly, hell I'd be happy if they removed all such limitations in BF2 that aren't more then a change of numbers. So in other words you can host as many people as you want, not that the maps should be made for that though.
