    wow.. a lot of pages already..
    So seriously, do I get this game or what?
    Hows it better than The standard COD type game?

    I'm tempted, looks pretty.
    Need to look for some HD pics with AA.

    Found it for 39 bucks on EA's site. :p

    please do let me know, is it going to last the test of time or die in no time?

    I'll play it untill BF3 comes out. If you have played BF1942/BF2/BF2142 you'll like it.

    Played 1942 and 2142.
    To many hacks/cheats in 2142.
    But you guys have a ded-server.. so bans always an option.. goodie..
    I hear theres a lot more to do than run n gun.

    I hope thats the case, as that holds a lot of appeal to me.

    just trying to find some nice HD screenshots.. i thought it'd be easier to find them.
    went to EA went to gamespy..
    where the freak are all the HD pics? lol

    Well this is BF2142+destruction (and less modern tanks/guns). 32 player max is only downside to BF2142. The destruction really affects gameplay and map is totally different in the end than it was at the start.

    Hacks/cheats will always be, but buy it now and you'll get to enjoy it while it's mostly cheater free :)

    I think there was plenty of HD shots in this thread, just browse back to the release date time posts.

    edit: wow that's a lot of pages, trying to spot the shots :/

    These are no HD, but in the mean time for you 30 shots 1680x1050, 4xAA, 8xAF, max/hbao=off

    edit2: just went through 20+ pages and no screenshots. Maybe I just dreamed them, but I give up :)

    Our server has been losing most of it's pub traffic because it crashes too often (like every other round) and lags for many people. The NY and UK servers both run better for me and the people I've talked to about it.

    There are over 3000 posts on here about it. Go to the last MW2 thread and see how many posts it has. Is it better? Like day and night. It is more challenging, has a lot more things to think about then just running around shooting each other. It has a destructible environment, which brings us to the best part. You can pretty much blow up everything.:toast:

    So my question is, shouldn't there be some sort of refund by the server company, or an extension? If other company's are providing good service, and no one is joining ours because it crashes all the time, it seems like a pointless investment.

    you make a good point josh, i would contact them and insist that they get more stable service, a server is pointless if nobody will play in it

    I'm not saying a new server, but it seems any other server I play in hasn't had crashing issues for quite a while now, and it has pretty much killed our servers traffic, seems to be an issue on the server providers side rather than DICE.

    At this point it's something I would consider. The instability and high latency of the server has been noted by several of us and since our servers located elsewhere are performing much better I see no reason to throw money at these guys. I was discussing the server with Lemode (missile) and I think the reason for the server's poor performance is simply the network infrastructure surrounding the VA location is simply not fast enough in comparison to say NY where the backbone is much stronger. Soviet pings 50ms less to NY vs VA which geographically is closer.
     
    lemode, digibucc and 1Kurgan1 say thanks.

    Yeah, I mean, it's great we have our own server, and for a while we had good traffic, but now any matches that happen in there, have very very few people from outside of TPU. Paired with the bad latency, I can't see how they could expect to really charge for this, or not give some sort of compensation for bad service.

    also what about Chicago servers? That seems to be the most centrally located server location for US and Canada, thats usually where I play if no one is on TPU. What kinda connection your guys up north get to those?

    i'd be fine with anything on the east coast, chicago sounds fine(close enough ;) ). it's also a bit furthur west to help with lat... we'll have to talk to MiS to see what the deal is with that server then... I think we are already paid for another month - but still it's their issue with crashing so either they fix it, or move it and fix it. hopefully they'll do both...
