Default 4 servers, that's it?

4 servers and all with crappy high pings? I want to battle! Bring back the good days of BF2.. Are there not a lot of people playing this? If that's the case, I'm disappointed.

Welcome to a 10 year-old mod. You're showing up kind of late aren't you?

What are you talking about? There are currently 79 servers up and running and around 370 people playing (and it's early morning in Europe even).

Let's not beat around the bush here. 60+ of those 79 servers will see less than 5 players in a 7 day period. Clan only locked servers people have forgotten about, skirmish only runs nobody thinks twice about, etc.

The game isn't dead but it isn't even close to populating almost 80 100 player servers.

Players might be hardcoded, but that sure doesn't seem to stop anybody from trying.


The only winning move is not to play. Insurgency, that is.

He's right. At the time of this message: 3 servers around 98players and one around 15. That's 4.

Would you join a server with 4 people in it? I wouldn't. Although 4 servers is alright imo.

Right now there are over 300 players online. Two servers are in the U.S. and one of those is at 98 players.

Captain Obvious . All I'm saying is there are 80-ish servers up. And 370 people playing is not bad considering it's early morning in Europe. Sure, at the time he was checking it might have been less, but still.

Check again at another time, bgd2980, and you'll see there are plenty more players and populated servers. On European evenings/nights is when you'll see most players online.

I don't live in Europe man. I live in the US. The pings on those servers are not playable. 150 and above.. Terrible.

While more choice is always better, if there is a spot for you, that's all you need. Specially given IMO almost every PR server is the same. Not many server customization in PR outside from some server rules. I'm pretty happy that after 10 years PR:BF2 still pulls almost 800 people on weekends on high play hours. That's way more then PR/BF2 had a few years ago. So I'll be happy with 1 server

I know............ I was only saying that most players are active on European nights. You can figure out what time that is yourself.

And 150 ping isn't terrible, I often play on US servers with that ping - no problems at all. If it gets much higher, then you can see more rubberbanding and weird stuff, but if it's around 150, then you shouldn't have much issues at all. Assuming you're not on wireless, because that's often pretty terrible .
