It might be dropping slightly, but if all the cheating were stomped on sooner, the game might last longer.

Yes it Is going Down Down Down. I want to SEE EA Improve The Single Player Mode so You can play on the Bigger Maps with More Bots Etc. So I can still play this Puppy when all Is said and Done.

RE: Is BF2 going downhill

bf2 started going downhill when EA released the first patch, now it is just terrible and to think 2 years later the chances of finding a heli pilot or gunner that knows what they are doing on a 64 man server is non existant. The majority of players are still complete noobs its such a joke.

Nice idea hummer, but EA won't be coming back to bf2. As for quality of players, I find there being a high frequency of skilled players in IO, mind you usually on the USMC on karkand maps and MEC on sharqi & jalala. My guess is that most folks have the charge mentality which plays well for the offensive team. The sad fact that there aren't any worthwhile both team IO uncaps illustrated how little EA comprehends about balancing game play. Their paper/rock/scissors system has about as much foresight into issues as the current US executive branch has on war & the environment.

RE: Is BF2 going downhill

Yes.

sadly I just can't find another team-based game to replace it.. I played in 4 games tonight, in 4 different servers.. left each one to find another..

first server was a french/quebec server i hadnt played on before. the host clanners/admins were all on one team, and suspiciously there was a squad on the other team (my team) with all negative scores, dedicated to crashing all our helicopters at our uncap. the admins did nothing about them, even when pointed out, since they were on the other team, of course

another server, sharqi, a guy on my team using the cobra by himself with about 50-0, TVing the mec heli every time, before it gets off the ground, only about 100 ft away from the TV helipad. eventually another teammate steals the mec heli and the enemies don't even get one flag the whole round.. woohoo... what a blast.... :\ i'm sure if you could alter your bf2 stats and just increase your wins/kills, it would be JUST as fun as that.

another server, sharqi, mysterious medics with AKs who always seem to know where you are, without UAV, and kill you in one shot with the AK. instantly jump around corners and dolphin dive to face you and you're dead. I would've thought they were just really good, and maybe their commander was just spotting everyone [instantly], but then the mass car drops started, 100's of car drops until the server crashed. so there were definitely hackers there

the last server was hosting Wake, and it was decent, except the admins there (i've played there a couple times before) always dolphin dive, jump around, and prone/stand/prone etc.. but i guess that's better than all the other crap... I guess...

just not fun anymore. even on closely admin moderated servers, most of the time they'll bend the rules to benefit the team they are playing on. like they'll kick a mec player off the server for driving a car into their uncap on Kubra, and then they'll repeatedly strafe the empty jets at Intake, so they cant get off the ground, or they'll steal them. "CUZ ITS NOT A UNCAP NUB" really poor behavior.. but i guess that issue is also partly the players' faults, not entirely the game design (although that's also a big part of the prob)

Dear o dear, what's so bad about dolphin diving? you want them to take aim crouch and then prone so its alittle easier for you? LOL.

And yes its not an uncap and i believe that uncaps should be attacked if they have other flags.. fair game and not like they have to spawn there :)

I think BF2 has when down because of 2 elements...cheaters/hackers, and admins who use their powers for advantage. I know with every game there will be cheaters. But what I hate are admins who use their power to kick/ban people for simple silly personal reasons. To me, a lot of servers have closed down simply because people got tired of being treated unfairly by admins when playing. Now I'm not kicking against admins, because I know a ton of servers with well monitored and fair-playing admins who do a great job. So kudos to them. But let's face it...when you're playing fair and have a good score, and an admin kicks you simply because you have killed him several times. Or when you go on these childish clan servers that have rules like "admins only in jets/helis" when the admin is the commander and shouldn't be flying anyways.....well you get the point. So to me, the BF2 community has decreased as every game does (as someone stated earlier), but I think alot of people quit playing primarily because of how they were treated on servers. ?(

There are still plenty of people playing and I don't know of any other game like this out now or coming out at least as far as ranks and stats. I am suprised at all the servers you see on the list with "stat padding" in their title especially since people are still being reset. I've noticed some nights it's harder to find a good server with the increased number of hacks being used.

Let me explain, maybe you had a hard time grasping my point of view. (hell, maybe I'm a weird player or something)

Yes, the game lets you jump and dive in the air, and the game lets you continually bunny hop even when your stamina is 0, and the game lets you prone/stand/prone/stand behind short walls, so you could say that you are "allowed" to do all of that stuff, and, I would agree with you, yes, you are "allowed", since, it's not cheating, or hacking. I can do all that stuff too, it's pretty easy. It's just a couple buttons.. You don't really have to be skillful to learn how to do any of those things, and it increases your survival rate a lot.

But my point is, if everyone is doing it, it's annoying, especially when the other team is not doing it. The only time I start doing that stuff, is when the other team is spamming those moves, or, if the other team is doing generally "cheap" things like camping TV helipad the whole round with the helo, or spawncamping uncaps the entire round, or spawncamping then stealing vehicles..

I feel bad doing those moves (continual dolphin diving/bhopping, prone/stand trick, etc) to more 'normal' players, because I don't feel they deserve it. If they're fighting normally, I feel it's unfair to do those things. It's like people who do the quick-reload AWP script in counter-strike.. why do it if no one on the other team is doing it?

Bottom line, I like to play fairly. I only play unfairly when the other team is playing unfairly, first. Other people, concentrate more on simply winning in any way possible, not really caring if it's "fair" or not. That's just not me though. I do like to win, yes, but I don't want to play dirty unless I have to. :)


Btw, on your last comment, I actually agree 100% with you. I think uncaps should be allowed to be attacked, once they get another flag, or else it's unfair to the team that doesn't have an uncap, once the uncap-team gets a flag. I.e. US takes 2 flags on Wake, now they have an invincible jet spawn on carrier which can never be attacked, but PLA has to defend airfield.. But I think it's unfair to attack UCBs when it's that team's -only- flag (since its way too hard to escape, sometimes, impossible when the player count is too high)

so you watch to see if the other team jumps a few times more than normal and prones/crouches?

i fully understand your view, it's just really weird how your thinking is.

either you play properly as some put it, or you jump prone as many times as you want.. usually it's the players who are not very good who complain and stuff.

Scripts are one thing, yep they are stupid. all the script AWP does it scroll wheel back and forwards.. i do it with the scout it's easy.

If you need scripts to press a few buttons it's time to uninstall imo. :mellow:

hehe, sorta. what I do is play normally, until I get killed lets say 2 or 3 times by the same guy because he was doing those things. from then on, I'll probably do the same type of stuff to kill him :)

if too many people on their team are doing it, (like a squad of 6 medics all ddiving/bhopping), I'll usually just jump around when fighting everyone :P (if needed, i'm sure you've been in situations where dolphin diving isn't a good idea)

btw, I feel the same way about soloing in the helo. I'm good at it, but.. that's not saying much, it's pretty easy to do.. Usually I won't do it unless someone on the other team is doing it, because I just feel dirty blowing up all of their vehicles if the other team isn't even using their heli. ?(

I don't play BF2, but I still love it. Still, it's going downhill. And by that I mean not so much that it's getting worse and worse, but rather that it's already hit its high point, and I doubt there will be improvements in the future.
"To me, there are three things we all should do every day. We should do this every day of our lives. Number one is laugh. You should laugh every day. Number two is think. You should spend some time in thought. And Number three is, you should have your emotions moved to tears, could be happiness or joy. But think about it. If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special."
