Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Kick on Connect Fix Coming

Electronic Arts UK Community Forums have word from Barrie "Bazajaytee" Tingle that a server fix is inbound for a problem that can cause players to be immediately kicked after joining Battlefield: Bad Company 2 servers (thanks littleme). Here's word:

For all the players connecting to servers and being kicked straight away (and pbsetup.exe or manual updating didn't help) then you will be happy to know we are sending out R4 servers to our hosting providers which will hopefully solve this issue.

This is going out to the hosts shortly and then allowing time for them to update you should see connections going back to normal in the next few hours and continuing to spread to all servers during this evening.

Did you play a ranked game after doing the code? For some dumb reason they make you join a ranked server and play a round, then your unlocks will show up properly. There's a bunch of odd things like that, it's made the launch pretty dodgy.

My unlocks didn't work.

Code put in, took it, didn't unlock.

Oh well, already unlocked them all anyway.

try to get in/buy before March 15. I believe that is when the deal for the LE/free unlocks is up.

How does that work? You buy the game and get some sort of unlock code or any account created before March 15th gets the free unlocks?

Edit: ah, I see what you mean, the LE (more expensive Limited Edition) on steam has the unlocks. Btw: gogamer has the regular version for sale, $42.90

Think after the 15th there will be a normal and le version.

What are LE/free unlocks about? Just weapons, right?

Yes, better weapons and armor upgrades that you'd normaly have to unlock thru leveling.
All of them?

Just 6 unlocks or 7 if you pre-ordered from gamestop.

Well, this update obviously hasn't made it very far. After half an hour of attempting to get into a game, I've given up. Been kicked out of every one I've managed to get into. And that was after 5 minutes of attempting to get my login to go through. The servers are all obviously getting hammered right now.

Guess I'll just try again later.

Bought this stupid game (DVD) and I can't even play it because the auto update is fucked for me >:(

Anyone know where I can dl a manual update?

Had the same problem on the release date. I gave up and waited
18hrs and all is working fine--could update, login, redeem codes and play. EA should have anticpated the hit its' servers would take on release day--so no excuse for their incompetence, but all went well when I got home from work and started up the game.

Awesome. It makes me want to get the game more. Just need to wait for sales and free time (way too busy!).

Few snags here and there, but with all of the fixes and tweaks - this game is awesome.

Agreed. Having a blast!!

Thanks.

Do I assume the game server browser will show which ones are HC and not?

Yes.
The browser is super friendly.
Filters work great as well.

Question: What is hard core (HC)? Is that level difficulty in single player or something?


Across a few different games, such as Bad Company 2 and Modern Warfare 2 it's server settings that alter how multiplayer plays. Things are typically adjusted for greater realism, IE: no crosshairs, higher bullet damage, limited to no HUD (no minimap, no heads up waypoints or ammo counts), FF ON, etc. It creates a distinctly different feel. I personally enjoy both modes, so it's all good.

Edit: Wow, the quote system broke big-time. The only tag I can see in use is the /quote tag and it looks fine. All the other formatting stuff is.....odd.
Edit 2: Fixed. Make sure there's a space between the time stamp and the quoted text.
Thanks.

Loving this game to death.

I hit the kick bug a few times last night and was beginning to wonder about that. Glad they're on top of it.


Regarding kits: yeah, the basic stuff isn't unlocked at the start. It was a few minutes before I figured it out, and then a few more before I realized that I hadn't entered the code for the LE unlocks.
