It's ok Cptn, the EA servers were overloaded half the night, you couldn't play MP anyway. I finally got on for 10 minutes at 11:00 local, when all the East Coast guys went to bed.

I got into MP once but got kicked after seconds due to a punkbuster error, hopefully it was just cause the servers were overloaded.

Playing SP it totally a blast though, and I'm really digging all the humor mixed into the action that bad company is famous for. Jokes that poke fun at other shooters especially make me laugh, like when Sweetwater makes a joke about not needed a P**** gun that has a heartbeat monitor built in, lol. There are many other examples already, and i only played about 2 hours of SP so far.

There's the two best knocks at MW2. Damn DICE knows what they're doing to make a good game. I got though the single player campaign already and it was a boatload of fun. Haggard is still the best character ever.

Lots of people were getting kicked, and were freaking out on the Steam forums. I manually updated Punkbuster. PunkBuster Online Countermeasures Run pbsetup, add BFBC2, update.

And yes, loving the humor in SP. I now have to go buy the original game for my PS3.

Comparing the Beta to the Retail is like night and day in every aspect. The lag is fixed and the graphics engine has been optimized. I had to play the beta on the lowest possible settings and shrink my res substantially, I had intense input lag. On the first run last night (other than the early connection issues) the game ran seemless, instantly boosting my K/D ratio over the beta. The one thing that was irritating was the inability to unlock ANYTHING, I don't know if it was just my account, or everyone in general. I couldn't even get a medikit/ammo kit.

As for people not liking bullet travel time and gravity, keep in mind you're not shooting lasers

Do any of you playing MP have a full squad of people you know? Synergy is key.

Lastly, what kind of mice are you guys using? I recently picked up the G500 and it's pretty much the best thing for any Battlefield game. Changing the dpi on the fly, one setting for sniper (insensitive) one for every other gun (normal) and one for tanks/mounted guns (crazy sensitive). You can turn the tanks barrel effortlessly.

Cheers,
Joe
