Battlefield Bad Company 2 released on Tuesday and, as expected after playing the beta, it’s fantastic. The performance has improved a great deal after a patch and an ini tweak or two. The maps and guns which I didn’t get to try in beta are all very well done, especially the scenery and atmosphere of the jungle maps.
Now, the main reason for this entry is to inform you about the K&G Community BFBC2 server. We’re now running a brand new 32 slot ranked server!
We had a great amount of fun yesterday playing on the server which was very stable even amidst all of the EA server problems (EA server lag and disconnects and such).
The server is set up right now to play Rush maps in Hardcore mode [Note: We’re playing normal mode with FF on and Killcam Off. As we determine which mode we like best we’ll settle on a more permanent mode.] HC mode is a more realistic mode where bullet damage is increase and several things on the HUD are removed. The problem with Hardcore is that we’re seeing a lot of sniper abuse. Sniper rifles become so easy to use that everyone plays recon and it becomes a “who can shoot the other first” instead of a tactical experience. It’s essentially opposite of what you would expect hardcore mode to be. We’ve found FF on and Killcam off is a decent step in the right direction. We’re going to be taking votes on our Battlefield Forum to decide what type of modes we want to run.
Hop on the server and play! Members of our community can be identified by the [KGC]. Many of us will be online after class and work today but feel free to hop on and get things started.
The game is a lot of fun and definitely worth the $49.99.
We’re also looking for sponsors. If you would like to sponsor our server please contact us and we can discuss the details further.
