Battlefield 2 Reunion Tour
« on: February 09, 2009, 12:33:00 PM »

(Crossposting this from HLC)

Have you heard? EA is coming out with a new Battlefield game for the PC!

Have you also heard that the max player count is 24, everyone has regenerating health and there's a total of three classes? And there's three maps? And it's been consolized to death?

So it got me to thinking. The last great Battlefield game was BF2, and that came out in 2005. Still, it's got a pretty damn good community with about two thousand games going at any given time. And there's sure to be a resurgence as a new BF game has been announced. And the heart of Battlefield 2 was getting a full squad together with everyone in Vent chatting away while blasting Arabs. So we need to do that again.

So, here's the deal. Anyone interested needs to post in this thread. You also need to get Skype, even if you don't have a microphone. And then, well, we play. I don't have a sate or time set since I have no clue when everyone is available. Shooting for every Friday though, and it'd be awesome if we could get a game going every night. Just so we're clear, I'm in the Central Standard Time Zone (GMT -6)

Don't have a microphone?

$7.88 at Wal Mart.

$5.99 at NewEgg.com. And this isn't the cheapest mic there.

Also, if you have a wired XBox 360 controller and an XBox 360 headset, just plug your controller into your PC with the headset attached. Boom, instant microphone. (This is what I do because I can have the audio from Skype come in through the headset and everything else play on my PC speakers)

"But I don't own Battlefield 2!"

Amazon dot Com has Battlefield 2 for $7.99.

They also have the Complete Collection (Comes with all the booster packs and the expansion) for $27.99. This also comes on one DVD as opposed to three CDs.

Really odd that you mention to make a BF2 party now because I JUST got into the habit of playing BF2 again. Anyway, I'll try to play Friday and the reason I say try is because I'm usually out Friday. Thankfully I've got a break coming up next week so woo!

I'd love to, but the time I was going to buy BF2 I read the box + realized it was WinXP only (and I was still on a 2K machine) so I said "fuck that" + bought Quake 4. (Not entirely sure it was worth it tbh. :l)

I'll see if I can get it.

I would be happy to play Bf2 again with you guys!

I only have the special forces expansion, and I think there was a new one released.
Do I need all the expansions to join you?

No, we'll just be playing vanilla BF2. In fact, I even created a new user profile for the occasion, so I don't have any of the unlocks.

Also, people! Start posting your Skype names!

I have to say I had major issues with BF2 with load times, its a good game but 2142 was more liked by myself simply because it didn;t take 7 minutes to get in game after a map change :(

I can give a rough estimate of time. Around 4PM to whenever CST. Server I can't give you because I'm not psychic. We'll just have to see. I'm also usually avaliable for a game in the evenings on weekends, though five hundred different things can come up at a time which would require my attention.
