    Was playing today, was part of the first beta and not much has changed really lol. Still picks crappy overseas servers which kills it completely.

    It's a great time waster though.

    Played it. Much retrying to join a server with EA's match making. Then I often find myself in a server and being kicked 6 0 seconds later for having too high a ping. Include with this VIP preference (I would be kicked if a VIP member joins) and I am lucky to spend 10-20 minutes to join a server which would keep me.

    As for the gameplay. I decided to go the tank class. All I can say is why bother. If you can shoot straight and are half competent, then the sniper rifle is your weapon and your class.

    I get connected to the GA server 99% of the time and sometimes that other AU servers (3DI?)

    What ISP are you on?.

    Anyway like you said tis a great time waster, BUT EA/DICE still dont understand how to make a balanced game.

    I mean a can be 3/4 people down or one side can have ALL commando's :thumbdn: ALL of this can really fuck a team up

    I am the same. It sucks the big one, but if you could run your own dedicated servers it would be a great game for lans and the like.

    it kicks me within few minutes due to high ping.

    not much i can do. needs some settings for only au servers or something.

    Playing it a bit today, only one game with a bad ping and not bad enough to be unplayable or get me booted. Seems pretty good, and fairly fun.

    its bf2 team fortress 2 style!

    I dont have time for this game unfortunately.. ive made it my mission to get all the expert awards in bf2 before bf3 comes out.

    thats quite a few hours worth :/

    i have pretty much all veteran and a few experts, probably like 7-8 experts so far.. getting there.

    Fun for a while but just gets to random and dull. Not a fan of 3rd person perspectives either.:thumbdn:

    I'm finding it great fun at the moment, for a free game its fantastic!

    The only crap thing is finding aussie servers. The easiest way is to add a whole bunch of aussie players and then use the join a friend option to get onto the aussie servers.

    i just started playing this game and im a level7 gunner... and have a few questions..

    1) does it matter where i shoot someone? (i feel like aiming at the head and torso makes no difference )

    2) do you get more hp as you level or do higher levels simply have stronger shields.. (i sometimes unload a whole clip of shotgun (the short range one) and the guy is still alive -_-)

    I started playing this after clicking a link from an nVidia newsletter. I was pretty instantly hooked. I made 3 characters (one of each class), all on the Nationals team.

    It's a really fun game, but has some fundamental problems.

    • No server browser.
    • No spawn area preference (like in old Battlefield games) and n00bs cap terrible points with no vehicles.
    • Rounds are too short (50 tickets only).
    • Wing clips don't count as plane kills.

    My hero names are:

    RockHard69 (Commando) lvl ~9 or 10
    RockHarder69 (Soldier) lvl 14
    RockHardest69 (Gunner) lvl 1 (not played yet)


    Playername = RockHard69

    I bought some items for my soldier, he looks a little something like this:

    Haven't played since Mondy, gonna have to get into it big time tomorrow.

    Had the same thing, so it is on the pile of games not to play now.
