Re: Battlefield 2: Bad Company and Battlefield 1943 announced

I've yet to get in a game. Even at 3am it was clogged. I don't know how you can underestimate this by that much. It's a Battlefield title which will always draw big numbers and has been advertised heavily.

I get the feeling they just didn't want to overstock servers and waited to see what the demand was. Definitely screws over loyal customers who bought it on launch day. But I guess that's EA for you.

If it's not better tomorrow I'll just file for a refund with Microsoft. Seems like a fun game but I can stick with Bad Company if I have to.

I got the chance to get a game in last night and this morning (once I actually got connected, that is). I didn't notice lag either time. It looks like things are getting better, but still nowhere close to perfect. I didn't notice any problems with hit detection. I was getting a little annoyed with the amount of snipers that are in the games, but that's just something that I'll have to get used to. I've yet to fly a plane (most of them get taken instantly whenever I try to look for one), but the other vehicles seem to handle fairly easily.

The games I got in last night I did not notice any lag what so ever. The hit detection was good.

All in all I think I am going to have a blast with this once they get the servers fixed.

I've really gotta work on my plane skills. I've got the flying down pretty good but my landing is terrible. I'm like that dude Launchpad from Ducktales.

I rolled with my squad of 4 all night and we were murdering on most maps. Cooperation definitely seems to be the key.

The only hit detection issues I have seen are longer range. I really dont think my issue is "hit detection" as much as i think aiming is kind of messed up. Its like you have to use kentucky windage or something cause aiming using the reticules doesnt really work.

Finally was able to play. The lag didn't seem bad, but I did notice that things from a distance were real choppy. Makes it tough to snipe from a distance as well as use anti-aircraft guns. I also noticed the background get messed up a few times while flying a plane (sky would turn from blue to a choppy grey).

It's a fun game, probably worth the $15 when they fix the servers. I still prefer Bad Company to this but it's a nice stopgap till Bad Company 2 roles around.
