    Are the servers only up for a certain amount of time like the MAG beta? Can't seem to get into a game at all, or perhaps theres just some server trouble.

    Got a couple of hours in last nite. Excellent stuff. I'll try and add a few of you guys to my fl so we can squad up. Thanks for invite djdeano....i joined the same game but were on opposite sides. Hopefully as the beta progresses they may make another map available. Anyway the game played smooth and steady and was classic bf action.

    Well I have to say it would appear as BFBC has gone the same way as MW2....Take an already great game and make it even better :thumbsup:

    Really like what I've seen in this so far...some great tweaks have made it much more playable and balanced than BFBC1 from what I've experienced so far.

    I still love the way you can take the side of a building out with your grenade launcher to expose campers :devil:

    Played a full match last night as the attacking side, lasted for around 40 mins which for someone used to MW2 team deathmatches seemed to go on forever as I wasn't sure what the overall objective was without a time limit.

    Did enjoy it though but only when I changed to the engineer class, the weapons seemed easier to control the recoil and better for accuracy, also managed to get a better kill ratio which is something that never happened on MW2.

    There was zero comms though on the team, I attached my mic but couldn't hear a thing from anyone else.

    Feel free to add DarthKebab. :thumbsup:

    One thing it needs is a compass so you can call out direction of enemies to the rest of your squad.

    The destruction is incredible, just a shame flying rubble cant kill. Also more fluid action with squads, aiming system far superior and the bullet damage is now realistic and the graphics are sharper. imao

    Anyone been able to use the mini helicopter yet? You can get loads of kills from it, like the AC130 from MW2, just takes an age to reload.

    I use the uav quite a lot, just remember to spot enemies by pressing select when pointing at them whilst waiting for the gun to reload ;). Anyone else getting disconnected every 5 - 10 mins tonight? yesterday was bit laggy (same lag that plagued the first bad company game, 5 steps forward 1 step back kind of lag) but doesn't seem as bad today, maybe its my internet playing up but its fine with all other games.

    Does spotting enemies put them on the map? I haven't had any connection issues tonight, smooth as butter for me with no lag. :thumbsup:

    I've just played my first beta match and I love it! The presentation is great, so much chaos, a good evolution of Bad Company. I like how the abilities of the classes have been mixed up and changed, it makes it feel fresh. I like the in-game voices too. I have to say though, I'm looking forward to getting it on the 360 because I just don't get on well with the PS3 controller.

    I think spotting enemies puts them on your squads mini map not sure about rest of team.

    Yeah just point at them and press select, can be a bit hit and miss when using the uav to spot infanty but playing sniper you just look down the scope and press select and its pretty forgiving, probably too much imo as you can liturally just spam select till you see someone come in that area, plus u get like 20 points for spotting someone who your team kills, so you can rack up a lot of points without even killing anyone. The person in the uav can set commands for which crate to attack by pressing select on the desired crate, not sure whether squad leaders can though.

    Up on D pad changes view, Down on D pad shows rear view and X changes position in vehicle.


    Not sure about the points but i have barely finished a game and its let me keep unlocks. Hopefully Dice will post a fix in Constantly dropped/loss of connection - Electronic Arts UK Community or a similar thread.

    You have to love when your quite far away, see a full jeep coming into one of your bases and killing the driver with a shot from the sniper. Then just watching everyone just flee, lol.

    For me this is much better than MW2 and it's only a beta. Having so much fun.

    Gameplay is more open than MW2, and wouldn't say theres much camping at all apart from some snipers. Can't really camp much anyway since people just blow the walls of the building up your in.

    P.S. Was playing earlier and some guy fell asleep with his headset on, could hear him snoring and all sorts.

    You do get some camping, but once a base is taken the fight moves so campers have to move. There's now a killcam too, although from what I've seen in the beta it's not as useful as CoD's.

    cod is about the kills and that's it, which is why you get so many campers. BC2 has objectives and squad play so there is no point to camping although some people will.
    isn't it funny when you set a charge and wait in the corner for enemies to burst in, you still don't feel like a camper.

    Damn!!! Totally missed this!

    I realise I am clutching straws, but does anyone have a spare code they could PM me?? Or is there a way I can sign up for one or am I too late??

    Please!
