Now that the newness of FH2 has worn off I have noticed that it appears there are far more European players than North American players or at least it appears that ways since there is always 2-3 servers populated during Euro peek time vs maybe 1 server populated maybe twice a week on Amer. servers during peek time. Why is that? Is it a cultural, history, or what? I also notice the same with the 1918mod however there is never a shortage of populated BF2 or BF42 servers on either coast. Just an observation I've noticed and was curious what those on each side of the big blue thought of it. :uhm:

There are only Euro armies in FH2, and the theatre seems to be 'dull'.

It seems that for many Americans WWII was only in Pearl Harbour and dah Normandy. I'm talking about those who are not so interested about that conflict *flame blanket*.

Well the Fh2 American fans etc know more then just that. It is true, there currently are more European players then American. I've noticed that the Europeans havn't seem to have gotten near as bored with the desert as many Americans have.

When Normandy is out, back off and make way for a huge convoy of American players.

Maybe it's cause of welfare state : us Europeans don't have to get three jobs and work 18 hours a day to pay the bills and have a social protection, so we can save a few hours to play FH2 :p

Its not that bad here. Only people like that are the people that spend their whole life running around getting drunk wasting their Burger King money away. So, suddenly a few years later real life smacks them in the face, and screws them over :p.

That's funny, I was going to blame shiftless Europeans as having more time to spend on frivolous activities such as computer games. Just kidding, of course. :p

AFAIK, FH has always had a European centric fanbase. I think if the team had done Normandy '44 as the first theater released last December, we probably would still have similar posts with "Where are the NA servers/players etc."

Still one of the best FH1 servers came from US, Wolf I mean, and it was almost full everyday. It just seems that US players are not interested in mods (PR is an exception as it has big fanbase on both continents) as almost always there is only Europeans (mostly germans) playing them.

Sure, us Euros would have played FH2 the same way if the Pacific front had been released first.

I dont think it is because there is norh african theatre, I think it is because it is "only" one theatre.

When 2.15 comes with the maps it brings + normandie, there will be a lot more variation gamewise in the mod, and if server admins wisen up a bit and be creative with the map-rotations, it will (re)attract alot more players. FH2 can only develop the mod. How, when & where it is played is up to serveradmins, and its not just launching a bf2 server and press start, it requires time and energy to build a gamingcommunity. At the moment we have 4 "core" FH2 communities: Wolf, hslan, Forgotten Honor and BFE:WaW.

I welcome more, alot more, to help this mod grow.
