  • Frustration sets in with BF2142 - hopefully only temporarily...

    Well, this evening's play has been very unsatisfactory. The servers are now full of youngsters who apparently got their copies for Christmas - which is fine, but the language that's now being thrown about on the servers is appalling - insults traded back and forth, stupid gameplay, a load of people who just don't want to get into the team spirit of the game...

    To cap it all, I just encountered a guy shooting his OWN reactor console.

    I walked up to him.

    "Hello, what are you doing?"

    No reply, he just kept blasting away.

    "Erm, that's OUR console!"

    No response, except he pulled out his grenades.

    "THAT'S OUR CONSOLE!!"

    Guess what? No reply...

    So I shot him. I've NEVER deliberately shot someone on my own team before.

    He punished me for a Teamkill of course.

    "Fine, punish away" said I... "but I'm not the one shooting my own reactor console".

    Moments later...we lost the game.

    SIGH...

    Come on you ACGers...let's get a full team up and running and show them how proper Squads work together!

    Friday night

    It looks as if Friday night will work for me. Dr S I am looking forward to helping you destroy the bad guys......and also do the same in BF2142

    I should have X-fire back up and running by then.

    I am really starting to enjoy this game, I am going to play online tonight for about the next 40 minutes, then it is time to watch my Badgers play some hoops.

        And that's exactly why, when I do play MMO's, like WoW and AO, I ONLY play with roleplayers!

          The plot thickens...according to the EA forums, there are a plethora of hacks and cheats being used in BF2142 - including the use of "moles". Yes, it's true, a team will assign one of their number to switch sides whereupon they will go and destroy their OWN reactor consoles in Titan mode in order that the other side will win.

          This is really very sad as it's ruining the fun for everyone else.

              And you can't even rely on admin...
              The only time, I complained about cheating, I was the one that got kicked (+servor ban)!

              But this one is even better:

              I was with a squad mate in a corridor. 3-4 clan guys turn up. We clean them easy.
              We heal, reload and get ready.

              1 minute later, here they come again. Sentinel, machine gun, grenades. They make it close but they fail.
              We heal, reload and.... get kicked by admin!!

              I guess these clan guys really wanted that console

                I'm of the opinion that when the Battlefield series started in-game tracking of stats for the purpose of gaining rank and weapon unlocks, is when the franchise opened the door to rampant cheating and questionable game-play, as it gave the player added reason to employ them.

                    Honestly I'm surprised that EA and makers of all the other games haven't sued them for making money off their games which would put these bastards in a spot of bother.

                      This type of thing has been going on a long time. Back in the days of Team Fortress Classic there was a "Speed Hack", which allowed cheaters to move at 'super' speed.

                      The only defence until Valve developed a patch which killed the hack was for servers to self-police. On the server I frequented the cry of "Speeder!" would alert the admin to the problem. Game play stopped until it was determined who the hacker was, then kick/ban.

                      So Dr S. is correct, to ensure best gameplay, it's important to find a good server (i.e. one where the regulars are already playing the game as it was meant to be played) then alert those of similar mind (like folks here) about it. Then populate it, help the admins, mentor new players and have fun!

                        Thats why I stayed with COD2 and Mechwarrior4 Mercs. A much smaller group willing to just have fun and not trying to invest in Stats.
                        Are we there yet?

                          Are you really surprised? The same thing happened with BF 2, CS, and every other FPS fragfest ever written.

                          People like you and me are getting way too old for that kind of stress. I was playing the free FEAR online, and after only 5 minutes, a guy is on with unlimited grenades and some kind of armor hack - he couldn't be killed and just kept throwing grenades.

                          I should have known better as well.

                          Time for you to download the AATF demo and have fun pounding the OPFOR back to the stone age!
