I dont think we can, which I'm sure will make you very happy.

Incidently, its also why everyone want to see BF1942 2. Its about time for a new WWII game.

Another reason is because the PC crowd got SHAFTED with BF1943. For the console, EA named it best selling downloadable, ever.

It's up for pre-order at the EA store, so it looks like we will be getting bf1943 as well.

I played a bit of FH2 yesterday for the first time in many moons. Having to advance slowly from cover to cover and actually cower from the rumbling of armor is refreshing. It's muy more immersive and fun when there are consequences to your actions. In plain BF2, getting killed doesn't matter 'cause you can generally reappear a few seconds later in the same spot and so just spam enemy tanks to death in short order. Which is silly and boring.

Whats the current spawn mechanic in FH2?

I used to play POE2 and FH2 (and there was 1 other big BF2 mod i forget atm) but this was a very long time ago.

Loved BF2 mods.

You can start on a fireteam leader but the delays tend to be longer and kit selection cannot be exploited to counter what is immediately needed 'cause some kits are limited and others are exclusively 'find and pick-up'. Also, none of that miraculous medic or unlimited ammo schtuff.

Another plus to FH2 is that dickish players are rare. It's a different mindset.

Other mods include Project Reality and AIX.

First videos should arrive at the start of March. DICE has some kind of a technology conference and BF3 videos will be supposedly shown.

Oh that's right: The ****ing planes.

The BF1942 planes where far better because they worked on all levels. Bombing took skill, dogfighting was fun and you could actually shoot them down with small arms fire (or better, AA guns).

The laser shooting carpet bombing invincible death machines that was the BF2 planes where a ****ing disgrace to gaming balance.

Unfortunetly I have no illusions of BF3 being a true sequel to BF1942. They will no doubt milk and milk modern warfare until its dull and boring... Then they'll release another modern warfare game just to top it off.

All I am hoping for is BC2 but on a larger scale with more vehicles and players. If they can at least do that I'll be happy.

However, it IS coming to consoles as well. I won't hold my breath.

+1

BC2 with new/more weapons and factions on much larger maps with more vehicles & players

When I say more vehicles though I don't mean 10 tanks per team, but maybe 5 or 6 hummers, a couple armoured transport vehicles, a light tank or 2, 1 heavy tank and a few choppers (2 transport and 1 attack imo) throw a few quad bikes, boats and jet skies in aswell for good measure.

I think light vehicles are better for gameplay and heavies should be something worth protecting.

Spot on. The reason BF1942 worked so well was because it was very balanced. Lots of tanks floating around? Planes could handle them. Lots of plans? AA and infantry could handle them. Lots of infantry? Tanks and vehicles could handle them.

The only BF game I ever flew in was BF1942 because you didn't get from one side of the map to the other in 1 second. You could actually plan a route, and do a bombing run. Even better, the people on the ground could see it and try to prevent it.

I hope BF3 is WW2 as well.

I have enjoyed BFBC2 much more than BF2 because it has been balanced much better. BF2 has absolutely overpowered planes that can't be shot down by any infantry class. Helos in BFCB2 take one rocket or missile to down but in BF2 planes and helos take multiple missiles to down and they get repaired by flying over friendly airfield couple a times.

BF2 is simply one of the worst balanced multiplayer games I have ever played.

I played competitively for a while and the majority took the AT class in those games. In pubs you'd see a reasonable majority as medic but not to a massive extent that it wrecked the game.

Jets were always the big OP problem with BF2 (the rest were addressed after some patches), but even then the game was very enjoyable. I'd leave it much as it was but give a little more thought into anti plane weapons. TBH I don't see a problem with an uneven playing field, as long as the sides switch on the same map before map change. A few more looks into spawn camping and perhaps a queuing system for desirable assets might be worth it... maybe.

Agreed, I hated BF2, just thought the infantry was off myself and that is the most important thing to me. BC2 is BF2 done right except it's gimped by tight maps imo..

Try Mount and Blade Warband and see for yourself. Not my cup of tea but some like it.

Not quite, no. The problem is the Battlefield vehicle motto: Land, sea and air.

If you go back to WWI, you got very nice air (biplanes FTW!), but the sea aspect is basicly exclusive (just battleships and cruisers vs each other, no islands, no planes) and the land aspect would be... weak. The vehicles of WWI just wasnt up to spec for combat. One would have to go to extreme unrealism to make it work for the masses, which would be a mistake. Yeah I know Battlefield is anything but realistic, but at least its believable. Seeing a WWI tank zip around on an island while a battleship bombards it and a biplane stuka bombs you would not be believable.

WWII is pretty much as far back as you can go for a true Battlefield game.

But then on the other hand, it would be pretty neat to see phalanxes storm a flag while a chariot charges in from behind and a trireme tosses in fireballs

That was actually what I meant. Anything besides WW1/2 and the modern gun. Maybe some Indians vs Colonists, Tribal war, Civil war.. with faster reloads of course..

While it would be interesting to see no one would ever play them. I would like to see a proper WW1 game though. I've played WW1 BF mods, but they aren't the same.

So a bit of news on Battlefield 3:

http://www.pcgamer.com/2011/01/04/ba...on-windows-xp/

DirectX 11, XP not supported, and 64bit OS recommended. Finally some progress?

Yeah but the tweet of saying "lots of time to upgrade if you havent" doesnt sound very encouraging if one was hoping to have it sometime this year. Then again i dont know what the expected ETA was so late year or later release is probably more realistic.
