BC2 was probably the peak IMO.
The development and management teams involved now, are so far removed from the best years of BF, the corporation has lost the memory and knowledge on how to build a "new" one. Corporate amnesia impacts most businesses over time, but I find it astounding to see it unfold so dramatically in the gaming industry. Unfortunately for us who remember those good ol' BF days, another developer has not filled that gameplay void.
Interesting; I enjoyed BFBC2, but I thought it was one of the 'least BF' Battlefield games... small maps, low sky cap, insanely dominant helos and... no jets? I think?
Best Battlefield was probably later BF3 and patched BF4. DICE completely shit the bed by not just doing upscaled BF4 with BFV's fortification and movement upgrades.
More on topic, BF2042 will get patched into working order eventually; it's already happening. But I think a lot of players are way too fickle now, and have already quit and moved onto Vanguard or some other lesser game. PC only servers are empty, I can only find a BF2042 game with crossplay turned on. And Console teammates are ATROCIOUS.
