The ranked servers have the choppy gameplay. Filter out ranked servers (uncheck the ranked checkbox) and you should find servers to be playable, assuming you've already played around with your graphics settings and eliminated that factor.

Personally the best browser solution would be to bring back the days of using ASE rather than these crappy browsers that just exist to maintain total control.

If you're playing on large scale maps and are seeing lag, try setting your graphics options to medium. If you're playing with everything set to high and you tested it out in a single player map, you can't really compare those results because there aren't 64 bodies driving/flying/running around you.

BF2 violence is real.. in your head.

I used to enjoy seeing a known name do the voice-overs for a game until I saw all this. Now I don't care if they get some guy off the street to read a script into a microphone. Keep your Hollywood BS out of our gaming world.

SOE would need to write an excellent letter if they want to keep their customers. The EQ2 vs WoW contest is over. EQ2 was blown away. Did they reach the 2 million mark for customers yet? It's too little too late now, as many of us have our MMORPG fill and are moving on to other games anyways (I can't imagine leveling in EQ2 after playing to 60 in WoW).

Even the MMORPGs that have improved since their launch will never get the player base they might have received if everything went well and the game received great user reviews on launch. Most people simply go with their first impression, which is why WoW's biggest problem was providing server capacity to meet demand.

LOL.. and more than half the letter is about implementing PvP! EQ2, welcome to 6 months ago.

Silly rabbit, the ship date is the day people who order from ebgames.com receive it Played it last night in 32v32 maps with no problems, other than finding the serial number which was on the manual.

It just seems like it's alot easier to ship from central warehouse A to me than to ship from warehouse A to store B to be unpacked and stocked by employee C, to be picked up by customers D&E.. only to find that when you arrive you're F'd.

I've never known amazon to ship games earlier than EB, so I don't order form them unless the game is already out. I either go EB, direct from the developer/publisher (if possible), or maybe gamestop if I want the game asap.

EDIT: mine was sent out yesterday from EBgames, overnight

When you're installing and you're prompted for the BF2 serial number, it tells you to look on the back of the CD/DVD case. It may not be there, at least for me it wasn't.

Look for the serial number to be printed on the back of the manual, printed at the top.

rise of the triad? is that what you're talking about? i loved that game.. bouncing around on trampolines with two 1911s shooting what i assumed were probably nazis or something. what a wacky game...

Ya. I was wondering if someone was going to catch that one. When I think back to memorable FPS games, that one comes to mind. Jumping around firing missiles, definitely a unique gameplay experience for me. Although I've found it's best to remember the game as it was in the past rather than try playing it again... kinda like trying to fire up Bard's Tale for the C64 and seeing how crappy it looks.

The demo did not support the GF4 and the offical stance last I knew was they weren't going to support it. The word is NVIDIA had some influence on that decision to make gamers upgrade their cards, but who knows *shrug*. There is a hack out there somewhere that allowed the GF4 to work, but it didn't sound that reliable.

As for EB and getting a hold of the game, it'll probably depend alot on your local EB. Mine will be waiting for me when I get home, according to FedEx online :). I went with the ebworld pre-order.. free overnight shipping and a free headset. Don't hate me because I'm playing BF2 tonight.

I'm in the last level, when you open the door and it's a bunch of rocket launcher guys around lava. Took me like 8 tries, but I finally killed the last one

Is that the one where you can move a chair down to the door and keep it open while you pick off all the guys that come up to it?

Unfortunately the EU couldn't reach a consensus on the color of their uniforms, so they opted out of this one

Yeah, I can see myself getting sick of BF2 at some point as well. That's why I only played the hacked 32-player demo map in single player mode, to practice with all the weapons and vehicles before the real thing comes out. But for now it's either this or maybe a RTS game. I'm done with RPGs for a while.

Oh and.. status: On FedEx vehicle for delivery

Hey, it's not every day a half decent FPS comes out that hasn't been played to death for 8 years and 1000 mods. Maybe you guys can go back and fire up Quake x, RoTT, MoH:AA, UT, BF1942, CoD, RTCW, DoD, or whatever else you've played. But once I get sick of a game, there's no going back.

Deja "view"? Oh no no.. that was Supreme Commander revealed.

http://www.bluesnews.com/cgi-bin/board.pl?action=viewthread&threadid=57815

THIS one is Supereme Commander Announced. Much much different thing. Luckily neither one has anything to do with the one called DS.

.. neither would Sen. Dick Durbin I suspect. Ah, but that's the senate and this is a gaming message board.

Now, did I just read that EA is going to limit the available weapons for retail unranked servers for people who actually pay to play this game?
