Its about bloody time!! Im glad they fixed things like Spec ops not geting points for blowing up enemy artillery and such . It always felt so pointles to do so as you got nothing for it.
I wonder how they intend to stop point farming!?
The changes / additions sound great
Everthying sounds good in that list,only thing Im a little dissapointed about is the lack of extra material,would have been nice to have a couple of new maps ,and a vehicle or 2,but hey ho, every BF game has been the same so why expect any different now.
A little concerned that theres no mention of the Blackhawk,hopefully it still wont be a flying tank
Well, I like tha BH, and thanks to it i managed to score 340+ points on Shongua Stalemate!!!
I havent met many that have such a high score on a single map!
The way i did it was to be my teams leader, be a medic/pilot, have 2 gunners (one being a medic and the other being support (thus re-arming everyone) 2 engeneers fixing her up and one RPG guy shooting at tanks and APCs.
We kept jumping from flag to flag and scoring sooo many points and earning flight points too. heal points too.
Of course we won the match and points got doubled and such. Best round EVER! If you dont beleive me, head over to BF2S.com and look my profile up. "OGY01"
That is EXACTLY what is wrong with the Black hawk!Does the fact that you were able to score so many points and fly around,practically untouchable not suggest to you that just possibly there might be balance issues there and the BH is way too over powered?
The Black hawk is supposed to be a transport vehicle not a flying invincible tank with lethal mini guns which is capable of capping flags in about 2 seconds.No other vehicle can be repaired by passengers whilst they are still in the vehicle,why should the BH be different?
Some maps are severley lacking AA weapons and with a decent pilot the Blackhawk can roam from 1 flag to the next,engineers happily just sitting there gaining points by repairing and the gunners killing anyone remotley near wherever they point their cursor with their stupidly overpowered spray guns.
How anyone can argue that the BH isnt overpowered baffles me,AML's post above describes exactly how it can ruin a game
Have to agree with Jason B all the way...............
TBH the AA weapons on most of the map IMO are rubbish anyway , fire anyway other than where you want the bloody thing to go.
I have to say though if you have two Anti Tank people stationed under a flag - the Blackhawk has to be very quick before you start to knock it out of the sky. Its just keeping out of the way of the chain gun thats the hard part.
Agree with Jason, the BH ruins quite a few maps, they should change the system so either flags can't be capped or so that only one occupant can cap a flag, taking longer.I personaly think the points system needs looked at as people become obsessed with them as in AML'S case rather than having a good fight, which is what some of us actually bought the game for in the first place!!
I dont agree. All I hear is whining.
Theres nothing stoping the oposite team from doing exactly the same thing.
In fact on the day I scored those points, they were doing the same thing. Thats why I had to keep flying from flag to flag, in order to retake what we had just taken 2 minutes ago!
What perhaps they should do is to stop engeneers from being able to fix it while its in the air. Its not like you can fix a tank or APC from the inside!
Dont blame me, Its not like you are always lucky enough to get a perfect team like that anyway.
Im also not obsesed with points, it just happens that i scored a massive score on that one map. I dont usually get that much on a single map.
I also bought this game to have fun, but I have to say that at least this game has some sort of goal.
Most games ive played in the last few years are just mindless shooting and killing. At least in this games teams have to work together and achieve a goal together. Thats what im into.
Scoring points which leads to unlocks is also an incentive to play.
Look at a game like DOD or CS. What is the point to play those games when you get nothing in return?
That's due to spending too long sat along side the chain gun fella.
Disagree - I think you find on the Mashtuur City map as a starting point only one side gets a Blackhawk.............granted as things change through a game either side can take hold of one. But its not really even is it.
As MrTHX has already said,there is quite a bit stopping the other team doing exactly the same,1 of the main factors is the other team doesnt get a blackhawk!They do get the MEC equivalent which is p!ss poor in comparison,hmmm,lets see a lethal chaingun which can kill everything in the vicinity or a mg which has kill zone of a dot.
Im also a bit confused cos you say you dont agree and we are just whining and then go on to agree with a lot of our points:
and regarding this :
PLEASE....all you have to do is start a squad,and say "ok folks Im gonna get us loads of points,I need 2 eng,2 med maybe a AT guy,then sit in your flying tank racking up easy points.
.... exactly the same reason we play BF2,for fun!
Dont get me wrong,BF2 has many good points,and sometimes the gaming experience you can have when playing it is second to none,but there are some things like the BlackHawk which need need serious attention and I cannot see how anyone can deny that.I just hope that if they arent addressed in this patch,they will be looked at soon
I'm not obsessed with points?
I do think you need to read your second post again mate!
Errr, a couple of sentences explaining how i did what I did on that particula map is hardly an obsesion.
Im sure im not the only who would be surprised if he had just scored that many points on a single map.
Anyway, so what If i enjoy adding up points. That is after all one of the main reasons to play this particular game. Many of those playing BF2 are in fact trying to reach higher ranks in order to unlock weapons and getting closer to being number one.
Perhaps you are all just jealous coz i got so many damn points!

Ok, now, can we have that in English please. English.
MOD Comment keep it civil guys
Sure thing, I just cant understand why these guys are getting on my case about earning points in a game where, well, you are supposed to.
I admit the game has its flaws, and untill these flaws are fixed, many people will exploit it. Complaining to the ones exploiting it wont solve the problem itself.
Im just glad the 3rd patch will fix some of the problems BF2 has.
Its also quite possible that EA and dice dont see the black hawk as a problem in itself.
It is just part of the game and if you are quick and clever enough, you will be one of the passangers rather than a target.
If only we were all as fast and clever as you.
F F S I H F R !!
So uncalled for.
Im trying to keep things civil and this is the kind of response i get.
So anyone know the actual release day/time for the 3rd patch?
wood be nice if i could play the darn game without it switchin of
Just yesterday I had it crash my PC! Still no idea why it does that.
Other games dont seem to do that. But thats just one of the many wonders of PC gaming!
Could be all the weight of the points in your BH or perhaps a well aimed anti tank missile, my weapon of choice...nothing personal i hate all the jets too! ,
Joking aside, the game does take a lot of tweaking to get it to run smooth, see the planet battlefield forums, i had constant small pauses every 4 secs and after doing the tweaks reccomended there and on tweakguide.com game runs as smooth a silk with everything but textures on high, only at the start of the map does it pause, think this is a ram issue as i only have 1 gig of pc3200
Good game though, now were are those BH'S
Supposed to be released today according to IGN.
Let's hope it sorts out some of the major bugs with no stability problems.
Here we are...
NOW AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD!
And here's the list of tweeks Shame I'm can't get home to play it until tomorrow night!
And as for you Blackhawk Flag-Cappers - your number's up!
OK, admin guys for our server (UrbanT/HarrisUK), what's the deal? Is the server now a 1.03 server? And do we have our reserved slots yet?
Anyone know if there any quicker download servers ......... on a 2meg connection and currently downloading at 5.5Kb/s
Actually, looks like the AVForums server is 1.03 now. Might give it a go in a bit!
