Default Battlefield: Bad Company 2... anyone?

Just got myself a cheap copy of BFBC2 and am trying to find some good servers (which is a bit of a pain in the ).
Anyone here playing this game and know where to have some fun?

I usually set up the filters the way i want, then join the best results, if i like the server i go into the "history tab" after i leave the server and add to favorites, overtime you build up a favorite list and have good servers ready to go at all times :)

It's hit and miss as the server doesn't judge the kind of gameplay you'll experience. The people playing do. I've played on servers that I typically like, but have had horrendous games.

You just have to stick it out sometimes though, or server hop like crazy. But then you won't rack up too many points.

There's a simple way around that, find different 'amusing' ways to kill people. Lately I have using the smoke grenade, so few people use it and the comments after a death are funny.

Its hit and miss as others have said though it seems BC2 is on the backburner of games i play right now. Maybe i'll dust it off to play with you in the future though i bet im rusty again.

I play on Z-Gaming 24/7 Arica Harbor Conquest. Good server, but lately there's been lots of team stacking (on all servers I visited as well).

Good server, but lots of good players, so might be hard for a learning player to enjoy.

Hardcore servers are great, especially the high number count ones that go on forever, super easy to rack up 30,000+ points a game, BUT its very hard to tell if someones hacking... well not really youll just know, but this makes these servers ridden with hackers. Youll get one guy that sits in a chopper and just kills everyone, or shotty head shot over and over from the other side of the map ect. Over all though hardcore maps with increased damage to weapons and what not are alot more fun to play.

I prefer getting headshots with the Repair Tool. It's always a good time. Id also like to try sticking some C4 to a UAV and flying it into an enemy one day. I don't play this game much anymore though. When the expansion comes out that should change.
