    This makes me happy, I got sick of the problems this game gave me, but with this patch I will definitely be playing BF2 again.

    this is fucking epic! (in a good way) a to think a few months, i was even considering BUYING the expansion packs - now they are giving them away for free!

    ....but that probably means that the 1.50 expansion pack will be bigger then 1.5Gb......more like 2.5Gb :eek: :eek:

    not that im complaining, I can get upto 16mb download rate at night on this dudes internet, but the problem is - his router is total shit & keeps dropping the wireless connection even though Im getting 60-70% signal

    It's been so long since I played I don't have any of my logon info anymore. I'm going to have to start from scratch. I will definitely be trying it out though, very nice that they are giving away the two expansions.

    Yay I am excited :). I can't believe how popular this game remains many years after its release.

    Why don't you guys sign up in the BF2 clubhouse? If we get enough people we could start a Division (Clan).

    Even if you had bought them, you wouldnt be able to play them as no servers run them cos too few people have the packs installed and this results in depopulated servers. But this is all about to change! The clanserver I used to play on, PORNOSTARS GERMANY (before I got banned for daring to call a sacred clan member an 'idiot') couldnt even afford to run Highway Tampa since not everyone had it installed. This meant that the server population was halfed whenever this map was loaded up.

    Anyhow, now that these maps are FREE and INCLUDED with the 1.5 patch, it means that they will just be another 8 maps on a standard vanilla map rotation server.

    If you know your email account you registerd with then just use the retrieve account function

    I dunno - I have a lotta good team mates that left me in the shit all alone to go play Amored Fury Im sure there are a good few servers running. on the other hand the amount of servers running the 1.50beta patch was around 50 with only 3-5 servers populated with less then 20 people in each one lol

    I might reinstall the game just because of this patch. I haven't played it in ages. Mostly because I lost my cd key.

    I played this a while ago, I'm really hoping they fixed the hit boxes and ranged accuracy. The hit boxes were massive, so close quarters blind shooting was easy kills. But ranged accuracy was horrible. I had some assault weapon and was prone, and aiming about 1.5 blocks away from another guy, I put 3 clips dead on him, he was laying prone spinning around looking for me. After those 3 clips I was out of ammo so couldn't kill him :/

    Also shotguns are useless. I was following another player about 10 yards back I put 4 shots dead on his back, was amazed when 1 didn't kill him, 2 I was shocked, 3 I was waiting to die, 4 he finally turned around and shot me with whatever gun he had that wasn't a shotgun.

    If they fixed those issues I might reinstall it.

    it feels a bit weird playing it - having gone through CoD2/4 & 5, CSS, L4D, TF2. I find i need to adjust to how stupidly unrealistic the game is.

    such as claymores - In CoD4, you need to be stationary for a few seconds to plant them in position, BF2 = you can toss them a few yards & they sound like birthday or christmas card hitting the floor....

    same with nades. its like everyones a fucking baseball players or something, you can throw them for miles.

    Acurracy in general i think needs improving especially for sniping. im not saying its bad but it could be better.

    I get more kills while sniping with the medic L85A2 gun then with an actual sniper rifle. though my M95 has saved my butt a lotta times by taking out the pilots of jets & choppers that try to kill me. the guns need to be rebalanced.

    they should also add an AIR BRAKE to jet aircraft that can function as an emergency brake in mid air - seriously, I could do so much with a jet if it had an airbrake - better threat evasion & it adds a bit more skill when it comes to dogfighting. plus you get to pull a lot more aerial stunts.

    How come it is only ever on forums that I am subjected to (un)likely tales of online shooter supremacy whilst I never ever witness such miraculous deeds when I am online and playing the game with other BF2 vets, many of whom are 3 star generals with 4000+ hours playing time behind them.

    You may well get more kills sniping with the Medic LA80 gun than with regular sniping rifles, but you certainly do not shoot pilots dead in moving helis/jets that are attacking you. RARELY, you might be able to shoot a heli pilot when some noob is flying and hovering very still above a spawn point or something.....Of course, killing pilots in stationary vehicles (usually friendly pilots) with the M95 is an entirely differnt matter.



    None of them other games you mention are even close to being realisitic. They are just different types of arcade shooter. If BF2 was played in tiny little enclosed maps, infantry only, running up and down narrow enlclosed corridors etc death match style, then it would simply not be as good as the likes of CoD4. It is true that as far as the infantry game goes, the guns can be infuriatingly inaccurate. Furthermore, the nerfing of the guns has been partially done on purpose with each subsequent update patch in order to 'protect' n00bs from vets. However, BF2 is played on massive maps, with all varieties of vehicles, squad play, and a myriad of different methods and playing styles by which the gamer can interact with the game combined with a near endless learning curve due to the vastness of what is on offer.


    If you want 'realism' then try BF2 Project Reality mod. That is as 'real' as you are likely to get with any video shooter and going by your taste in FPS games, I doubt 'realism' is what you are really looking for.

    Well yeah, I suppose it does. I can often get better returns for my money 'sniping' with the PKM than I can with the sniper rifles...but it is not nearly as much fun. Also, with the LA96 (unlockable) sniper rifle I have sometimes sat camped claiming up to 20 kills before I have ran out of ammo.....and I am not even that good as a sniper. If the rifles were more accurate then everyone else playing other aspects of the game would have to just put up with being murdered out of knowhere and the game could easily just turn into a snipe-fest. And you certainly wouldnt want that would you?

    I Dunno - but i can assure you Im not just all talk - Everyone has different styles of play therefore might not play the game with the same ingame ideals, stratagies & priorities as me there are possibly hundreds of servers out there - miracles cant be happening in every single one of them at the same time.



    sure you can, its all about timing, firing angle & firing ahead of your target so they 'run' into the shot - luck also plays a big part in it but im not saying my sniping resulted in 1 dead pilot everytime i sniped a plane or chopper. that would be total hax but I did down a fair few choppers/jets while underattack by sniping pilots out of the seat. jets are difficult though as they tend to roll, jink & use evasive manoovers in the air alot so the best time to snipe them is when their flying head on towards you when their going in low to drop their bombs or a gun run so the nose of the jet is lowerd so you can see them through the canopy. its a flukey shot, yes but its totally doable given the right oppotunity. Plus in general Ive always preferd being a sniper & have been since the days of CoD1, much to the point where if i was asked to choose a weapon in real life id get a sniper rifle. basicly its just the way ive played since 2003. other people might not have focused a lot on sniping like I have. Im not saying im the best sniper in the game but I have scored some insane shots in my playing time.




    Im not talking about the gametype, Im taking about the game in general cuz its a lot more uptodate the BF2 & more attention to detail has gone into sounds & game play therefore the CoD series is a lot 'realistic' then BF2 - you need to be stationary to plant a claymore in CoD4 (even in coD: world at war i think) in BF2 you could be sprinting across an open field & literally throw your claymores like nades while your still running - that doesnt happen in real life & claymores surely dont sound like a peice of card or small paper box when hitting the floor. so you are missing the point completely.



    Actually I wouldnt mind, Ive been on servers where a majority of the players were spawn campers, base rapers & snipers - it doesnt bother me at all. it just means they will be focused on spawnraping/spawncamping/sniping too much to notice someone sneaking up behind them. I loved the LA96. its one of the better rifles in BF2 but snipers should be one hit kills but they arent unless you get a headshot or their already low on health.

    -----


    at the end of the day, theres no need to get worked up over it. its just a game, its the way I play, its the way I HAVE played all these years & its the way I have gotten a great majority of my kills. you are not me. so I *dont have to explain myself to you since everyones abilities/skills are different.

    if you feel that you are failing then play harder.
