Dice has never heard of a little thing called "Play Balance" have they? Anti-aircraft dont do SQUAT to aircraft or choppers! They make better anti-personel then anti-aircraft. 300+ rounds of 20-30MM to down a cobra or Black-Hawk? BS! I had a cobra hover over me and I filled his engine till my guns over heated. He got tired of the noise and killed me. The M2 on the back of a Humvee does more damage to choppers!!!!!!!!!

Then there is the Black-*****. 2 miniguns, 2 engineers, a good pilot and a resuply dude is all you need to win a map. Engineers repair and drop landmines like beads at a NO parade pre-Katrina and the resuply keeps them full of ammo. Fly over that pesky anti-aircraft or tank, drop AT mines on top and BAM! Not a problem. Mini-guns will take care of APC's quickly.

Then there is the "sniper rifles". So I get my next rank, and get the big .50 cal sniper rifle. I thought it would be better then the 7.62 rifle, but it does the same damage. Not a 1 shot = 1 kill weapon! More like 1 shot = 1 fleeing target. I even drill them in the head from a few feet away and they live. Then someone came running at me with an AK-101, shoots me once and I die.

The came is complete bullshiznit, but for some reason I am still playing it every day.

I was thinking about it, but I doubt i`ll ever touch it. I`m really beginning to hate games where you empty heavy MGs in someone`s face and they just run on. UT2004 I don`t mind cos that`s futuristic nonsense anything goes, but when it`s based on real life then it`s a different story.

In this regard I prefer even AA and defo Swat4. One shot kills or badly wounded if hit. REAL tactics required... oh, no, I forgot... boring! Not `fun`!

One day some kid`s gonna get his head blown off in war and his last thoughts will be, " That didn`t happen BF2!"

My wishlist for changes in BF2:

1. Helicopters will not cap flags.
2. Ironsights have 100% accuracy but will induce recoil after each shot / crosshair sights or hipshootnig will have lot less accuracy than today. to be a good shot u must use the ironsights.. (that is not the case today!!!
3. Better hitboxes of veichles and soldiers
4. Helicopters are more sensetive to small arms and Anti Aircraft fire/missiles.
5. Antitank weapons do more damage to cars, apc and humvee´s and helicopters ofcourse..
6. About rifles and carbines and mg´s: I wish the following equation; Bigger guns=more damage= more recoil.
(Today it is useless to carry a PKM or M249 because you can spray it on a guy from 5 feet and he pops up his beretta and shoots you! poof! hate it!)

Its a game, but its got potential of being a really cool wargame if they just did some realism changes to it...

Hate the FM of the helos... and aircraft... seems like they are too dependent of throttle instead of speed, and not being able to "glide"

Would love to see a map where there is limited ammount of veichles, like tanks and stuff... and that they do not respawn... So u gotta take care of the things you have..

Oh well its my resource based thinking again!

Check out the next patch notes Gibbage. Blackhawks have been changed to make them more difficult to repair and only the driver gets the flag point.

BTW forget shooting helo's with anything but the unlocked anti tank shot gun! That think will take any helo down to half health in one clip. Reload and you bag the helo!! Thats the most destructive gun in the entire game.

Blowing myself up with C4!

Definately has a few faults, but i still play it everyday. First unlock was the G3A3 which is cool but slightly inaccurate and maybe not powerful enough. Next one might be the PKM, it sounds cool

http://bf2.gamedrome.com/gen/bf2/16664.jpg

The thing i hate most about these games is the ruthless exploiters, who search high and low to find some ridiculous tactic to score points.

witnessed last night was people traversing an open area by repeatedly lying prone straight into a jump, like some ridiculous body popper.

have these guys no dignity?

when the severs populated by decent fair players its one of the best multiplayer games ive played...

Ya. I had a BlackHawk crew work me over with the AT mines and det packs. I was camping my base in a tank, and the blackhawk came down and landed at the flag. I put a 155MM shell into its engine and start lighting it up. It lived, lifted off and flew right over me. I can hit squat and I know if I go into the MG the gunners will kill me. All the sudden I start seeing stuff drop out of the helo like crazy!!!!! I know its eather med/ammo packs or at/C4 and I think its the latter. I was right. That helo and crew owned me every time I was around it. I finally blasted it by hitting it 2 times with the tank and then an AT rocket once I bailed out of the tank. That felt good, but it was alive after TWO hits with 155MM shell? BS!!!! It takes more punishment then a tank!

On the other hand, like I said, the Hummer or DLP guns take them out FAST. Aim for the crew/gunners first, then hit the engine.

DM on that game is a bigger joke then IL2, and thats saying a lot!!!

Fist off, a tank doesn't have a 155mm main gun.
The US one has a 120mm and the MEC and China tanks have a 125mm gun.

Still any helicopter should explode when it's hit with a gun like that but in BF2 you need 2 hits.

I have camped my base several times and the best way to shoot em to bits is place the first round straight into the crew compartment, with any luck you kill the pilot as well.
I also have shot the pit section of a attack helo and both pilot and gunner where dead after one 120mm round.
I have also hit a blackhawk once full on the windshield with a 125mm round from a Chinese tank and the pilot was instant meatloaf.

Also put a tank and a apc together if your able, the apc gunner can shoot the crew out of a hovering blackhawk, place an AT rocket into it and then one round of a tanks main gun and it's gone.

Oh, and spray the crew compartment with the tanks coaxial MG will help too btw.

BF2 is a fun game with some tactical depth. However, the community is primarily comprised of immature, offensive gamers who are selfish in their gameplay. But then I digress. Next patch will indeed address a number of issues. Blackhawks need to lose their "Star Trek" shielding.

Never walk, ride. I am so SICK AND TIRED of watching my team run out on foot to the enemy base, get mowed down, and there are APC and tanks waiting for a driver! This is just STUPID for two reasons. #1, its armor! DUH! #2, if you leave an empty tank at YOUR base, the ENEMY will get it. I have seen that many times, and have done it many times also.

Also, being a gunner on a vehicle gets you LOTS of scores. The chopper, tank, and hummer are all very good if you know what your doing and have a good driver.

Sniper. Its like playing the game without joining! Best time for that is not to hide in the "standard" sniper spots like rooftops. People and other snipers always look there. Find better hiding places.

Get good at flying. My best kill streak is 28. That was in an F-15.

I just got it last night. I unlocked the DAO-10. My 2nd misteak in unlocks. 1st one was unlocking that sucky .50 cal sniper rifle. Who modeled the damage on this thing? Oleg? I can drill people in the head and not kill them, but an AK will kill me in 1 shot?

Just after I unlocked the DAO-10, I was playing in a game with it. This Medic with the G-36 sniped me from a respectable distance even for a sniper rifle!!! He fired a birst of 3 shots, and all 3 hit killing me. It was at that moment I realized my grave error in unlocking a shotgun...

Does anyone know the next rank? First was around 1000, the next was around 10,000, I hope to GOD the next one after that is not 100,000!

Haven't posted in a few months but I thought Gibbage might find this interesting. It looks like we have almost the same amount of time played, and here are my stats (I play as Arch-Druid):

http://www.gameslave.co.uk/bfparser.cfm

Check out the gold medals and grenade launcher http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif. Nice CP defends for you btw.

Just a couple of notes; I think you mean Mashtuur City is messed up because of the Blackhawk, and the medic doesn't get the G-36 (spec-ops), they get the L-85. I unlocked the L-85 and the Jackhammer (since I like the engineer), and I am pleased with both. L-85 is decent at longe range but must be fired one round at a time with a very brief pause between shots or they will go everywhere. On full auto the L-85 is next to useless unless you are shaking hands with the enemy. The Jackhammer is just nasty and is quite effective if used right (just because it is full-auto deosn't mean you have to blow through every round in one second, I just wish it had a more accurate 10 round magazine as opposed to 7). I just got it and I am finally starting to get a decent amount of shotgun kills.

And you are right about the Blackhawk, hit it on the underside of the cockpit area with the grenade launcher and watch the kills rise.

The G-36 will be next as it is the best gun in the game IMO. Can't wait for next patch. This game is certainly no simulation but it is always a good time.

Next rank after corporal at 10.5k is 25k, followed by 50, 75, and 100 thousand points. That is the reason why after I got corporal that I still have my unlock saved. Another 15 thousand points is a long time to wait if I pick a cr@p weapon. I figure I'll choose my new weapon after the patch comes out. Maybe some guns will change. Many people have multiple accounts because it only takes 1000 points for your first unlock. That way you can try out multiple guns without having to play to 100k points.

I unlocked the Medic kit first. Very accurate, with medium damage. On single shot mode that thing is a sniper rifle.

09-20-2005, 12:07 AM
I hope the .50 cal sniper rifle is turned into a true 1 shot/1 kill weapon with chest/head hits. It has the same exact power as the M-24 and thats just WRONG for a .50 cal 12.7MM sniper rifle to have the same hitting power as a 7.62. I was very upset with that choice.

Some nice tips.

While I have played a little CoD/CoDUO with my IL-2 Squad, and even less time with BF1942, First Person Shooters have never really interested me. However, enjoy WW2 history and tactical, squad-based gameplay so I find myself enjoying BF2 a lot (and even more when the WW2 mod comes).

In CoD, the scale is so limited that I can sniper with a German MP-40. Been playing mostly as a Support, which I still like, but finally realized that with an Assault rifle I can almost always win an engagement against a Support soldier when at a bit of a distance.

Love flying helicopters and sometimes jets (but not really all that fun). Since we are fly boys here, are most of you guys also flying?

Indeed, the key to this game is staying on the outside of a battle instead of charging right in the midst of it.

Played the Commander again the other night. Really my first online experience. Received three awards/medals in that match. Great fun!

TS!

I just tried the Realism mini-mod Beta 0.01 and its a LOT of fun! They are going in the right direction. Fixed a lot of my gripes and adds only 1 new one. The 7.62 sniper rifle should not 1 shot anyone by hitting there leg. Lol. Way overpowered. Not even the .50 cal should. Ya, remove the leg with the .50 cal, but the target would still be alive for a little.

One cool thing they added was player bleeding. I have mixed feelings about this "feature" and I have not decided if I like it or not. One fustrating thing is you cant see your health level, so you don tknow how bad your bleeding after being hit!!! Your vehicle also does not have a health bar. I was in a chopper, got hit by a rocket and started bleeding. I flew for about 60 seconds before I died. Lol. The medic is in big demand in this mod!

Also one cool thing is they added SABBOT rounds to the tank (AP rounds, in a way) along with HEAT rounds. You can switch the tanks loading at will, but it takes time to load the differant shell. Tanks feel big and heavy, but drive faster! Turret traverses rather slowly. Nobody will survive a hit from the .50 cal's mounted on them. I love that!

The chopper is a LOT better in this mod. Still a little flying tank, and took 1 sabbot round into the cockpit, but not as bad as the normal. The handling of the chopper is a LOT more crisp and more responsive. That in itself leads to a lot better piloting! I was dodging and weaving stuff just a few feet above the ground without worrie in the middle of the city! Throttle is slower to respond, but helps to fine tune the huver.

Jets still feel the same, but I only got to fly the F-15. I hope the F-35 and Mig-29 are more nimble then the larger F-15 and Su-30 jets. They way it should be!

In general, guns hit harder, people and vehicles have less health, and its a lot more realistic. I like it.

Just became StaffSergeant a few days ago.

BF2 is a great game and really fun, but the balancing is really off. The first weapon I unlocked was the Cal50-Sniper Rifle (M82)

Though I got most of my kills with that weapon, it is absolutely ridiculous: You can snipe a pilot in a cockpit, but an unarmored soldier needs 2 hits AT LEAST, from a distance longer than 2m. That is really ridiculous, as all other weapons in the game do way more damage in a shorter time. The M4, for example, is at least as precise as the M82, but has a much higher ROF. Oh, btw, the M82 in BF2 is bolt-action http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

The Helos are another thing. They withstand 3 AT-Rockets, even with direct hits and no engineers inside to repair the helo inflight (LOL), but a salvo from a Jeep-MG brings it down with ease.
It's also very funny to see how easily you get teamkills. Somebody from your team runs against your vehicle and drops dead, even if you're no moving.

But a lot also depends on the community. I got over 90% of my TKs from blind weirdos, who probably think the mine warning marks an object you can pick up by running or driving over it. Lay mines or claymores and be sure the nOOb of your team comes over the whole map to step on it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

But still, it is a nice game and I hope the patch will be out soon. The BF2 patch, of course. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

The best feature of BF2?

Flying an F-15 in Clean Sweep. You see a ground target painted in your hud, and dive for it. Release all 5 of your bombs just in time to see it compleatly surounded by your own team!!! Why did I not see my own team makers? Nobody knows. I kill the tank, 5 team members, and get booted when they all vote to punish me.

Or how about when I am a commander, plant an artiliry strike on an enemy base, and suddently 3 team makes go rushing into the enemy base right under the artiliry strike!!! I know they can see the strike icon on the map, I know the HEARD the "Artiliry Strike in YOUR area" but they aare still drawn like Lemmings into the strike area!!! Boom Boom Boom, 3 TK votes. ARG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am waiting for the Beta 0.02, it has a lot of hard needed fixes in it.

From what I heard, they wont let mods into ranked servers. I can understand since some team can make a high score mod, make a locked ranked server, and just boost there squads score. They do that anyways.

I was in a server a few days back were someone was boosting scores. Kill, heal, kill, heal and so on. It sucks, but there is nothing you can do. Who can you report this BS to? Nobody cares! It would be easy to detect this point boosting just by looking at someone's score. If someone has 100 kills in a row on the same dude, figure it out. If someone has 100 deaths i na row by the same dude.... Its all there in the score. I would LOVE it if Dice had a script that would look through the score cards and reset the score of people who boosted scores that way and people who were the patsy for score boosting. I doubt it will ever happen.

P.S. Yes, the M82 is an auto rifle, but we have the M-95. Thats a bolt action.

Gibbage1, you are correct about the rifle, but to the teamkills with the plane, I give you and all those other hot-shots a small hint: Use the minimap!

The Icons displayed in the HUD can't overlap. So you see a target with priority, but all friendly targets in the area will be surpressed.
Nevertheless, all icons, even infantry appear on the minimap. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif

Im thinking my next unlock at Corporal i might go for the PKM Light Machine Gun.

There are other weapons but i think the PKM seems pretty cool from the times ive used it after robbing the dead.

i also figured i would go for the G3A3 first, though i reckon its due a bit of a power upgrade. its really needs to be used on semi auto to be effective too.

as for TK's there has built up an annoying precedent. Nothing enrages me more than being punished for either someone who runs in front of your tank, runs over a clearly marked mine, or ignores the artillery strike.

Best so far was when my team was down to its last control point which had nearly been neutralised and 4 assualt guys were running around gettting maimed by an APC. I C4'ed the APC allowing our team to spawn in safety. Unfortunately I also killed a couple of my team. They punished. Despite the fact they were getting repeatedly dominated and spawn killed by the APC...

Yepp. That's really annoying. I was commander and ordered an arty strike on the last remaining enemy flag. Just before the first shells landed in the camp, our fully loaded BlackHawk flew right on the arty-sign and hovered there even after I warned them and after the first shells exploded around them.
Of course the next one was a direct hit and all people inside punished me and I was kicked with -20 score. As always any teamgame is just as good as the community......

The few times I've been Commander online (just the Demo) I've found it to be quite rewarding. Just make sure you talk like cr@p on the comms/chat bar, more than anyone else. That's the thing with being Commander, you have to forfeit a whole game just to hide in a corner and keep things under control. As I said, just stay in Tab mode, talking to everyone all the time, its about 75% on the chat bar and 25% actually making things happen! When sending in arty, put it in bold capital letters, make sure they all heard, same thing with supply drops and spy drones, ask where they want it, stuff like that.

Thing is at the minute i usually play with my mate from down the road over SKYPE.

but i get a tantalising glimpse of what BF2 could really be like if both teams used teamwork.

i mean the game is pretty **** fun even with everyone running around like rambo, but i proper team tactics and communication could make it totally sublime.

i think its greatness is in being playable in the absence of organised teams.

maybe i should get into clanning

Does Saitek X52 work well with Battlefield2?
I'm thinking about upgrading videocard at the end of this year, and buying BF2 + RealityMOD. I'd like to pilot helis especially.
For now I'm still happy with my GF4Ti and A*A game.

Don't expect too much, even from the realism mod. Planes and helos are not really tough to play. Well, they are, but not because of the physics being modelled so close to reality, but because of some really weird bugs in the very simplified flight-modell. If it was so easy to out-curve missiles, no plane would need chaffs and flares. Even worse: The faster you get the sharper turns you make. Hit the afterburner and pull a loop and no Sidewinder is able to follow you. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Gibbage, the problem you are referring to is the fact that if a teammate gets out of his/her vehicle, that vehicle becomes "an enemy" on all aircraft HUDs. It's a real pain in the butt to bomb your teammates because the icon distances arent long enough and they just got out to repair their car.

I wonder when the WW2 mods come out if things like TKs will go down a bit as the arsenal ought to be less powerful than modern warfare.

We need as commander the ability to place an icon on the map to alert the entire team prior to strikes. Presently one can only effectively communicate to squads.

Forgotten Hope has real potential.

Jets - why not allow them to extend into the "forbidden zone"? I personally don't like them because all you can really do is keep flying circles the whole time. Yes I can slow down and even fly low/slow if I want to, but in the end it is a steady 20 minutes or so doing circular laps around the area. If the area was larger for the jets, one could better plan their attacks IMO, and stop flying in circles all the time. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I have an X-52 for BF2 and like it. The stick twist works GREAT for the choppers and the throttle is very good for huvering also. So far I have not figured out how to get the POV bound onto the HAT so I am stuck looking forward.

About bombing. Its very difficult to verify on your minimap if the target is covered by friendly. When the minimap is fully zoomed out, it looks like 1 blue dot IN THE GENERAL AREA you want to bomb. That one blue dot can by a large group of soldiers! It does not help. I with friendly's would be painted on your hud in the same distance enemy vehicles are so I dont nuke a squad thats for some reason squating behind an enemy tank.

I also once blew up an enemy jet, and the debris fell onto a friendly soldier. The dude still punished me. Lol. How was I at fault on THAT one!

Im also doing a little work for a WWII mod for BF2 called Battlefront2. Here is a screenshot of what I am doing.

http://www.gibbageart.com/files/p-39-06.jpg

Thats a P-39. No ist not IL2's P-39. I never did that model. I did the P-63. This is a new model just for the mod.

Unfortunatly I have not heard much from the mod team in some time.

Gibbage, the hat switch can be modded to control the views through a config edit, but the unfortunate thing is that you still lose ALL controls when you look. This happens whether you use the standard ctrl+mouselook or the modified hat switch controls. Looking around is pointless because you'll just crash anyway.

Thanks for the tip. I have been doing fine without so far. The only thing I wanted it for was tracking other aircraft in a fight. Since I am locked forward, once they go out of view it sucks. Dogfighting is almost pointless in BF2 anyways. All aircraft fly the same, and once you shoot them down (IF you shoot them down) they just respawn and will be back in your face in less then 30 seconds. I just dodge a bit, fly low and ditch them. Not like they can hit squat with those bunk anti-aircraft missiles. Those things litteraly cant hot a standing target!!!!! I switch to ground mode and kill the enemy with guns. No warning, just death.
