    I think CoD 4 might have stolen its spotlight seeing as it was everything battlefield 2 was supposed to be. There should be a server somewhere though. Did you check that the game was searching for internet servers and not local servers?

    Many people still play this game. I was online only days ago. You need patch 1.5 to play on any server.

    Dont forget to install PBsetup from EvenBalance and after the game has loaded and optimized shaders you need to defrag your HDD to get the smoothest performance.

    the patches are big, and take forever to patch. definitely defrag afterwards.

    If you don't have the expansions you might see as many servers as well. I stopped playing because all of the servers went to the expansion pack... and I wasn't paying $20 for like 3 maps and a stupid vehicle... no dice

    Almost everyone got over Norther Strike pretty fast. I got it for the extra upgrades and 90% of the servers in my list are now on regular maps.

    I believe that gets solved with a reinstall of Punkbuster, as Triptex suggested. I had the same issue if I recall.

    It uses gamespy and punkbuster.

    Gamespy is more of a matchmaking service though. A shit one at that.

    You must download and run PBsetup.exe.... Add BF2142 to the list of games and select "Update"

    PBsetup will update PB files for BF2142 and you wont get kicked anymore.

    BF2 is way superior to CoD4.

    BF2 is also way superior to BF 2142 and this is why BF2 remains one of the most popular online shooters even after all this time.

    I bought BF2142 as soon as it came out, but found it lacking in so many departments compared with BF2. BF 2142 Never became as hugely popular as its predecessor did.
