do i need to buy bad company 2 vietnam?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hi there, i bought bad company 2 last night on steam and am pretty dissapointed that theres only about 3 servers of each game mode with people playing on it, all of which are laggy as hell.

ive just been looking through steam and see that for another 10 pound i can get vietnam, is this where all the online servers are or is it just that nobody plays bad company 2 anymore?

I think it really depends on where you live, I can't speak for the UK but here in Asia there are still a healthy number of servers for both BC2/Vietnam. You can swap back and forth as you please and you maintain your character unlocks/levels/etc.

I personally found Vietnam to be more fun, mainly because the people I happen to run in to are more concerned about trying to win as a team and completing objectives than keeping a precious KDR. It is just as competitive (if not more) and is nice to not have 50% of your team be snipers camping somewhere.

i must be doing something wrong then. when i click search for servers i set it to conquest, and have no preference for any of the other settings and it only finds 3 servers with people on.

what could be the problem. ill take a screenshot for you.

Try doing a search with no filters and see if it still turns up no servers.

Just make sure that you are filtering right. I just played last night and there were about 75 servers full of people actually had to wait in the queue on a few of my favorite servers last night. Still tons of people playing the game. Even imagine that after BF3 comes out there will still be alot of people playing BFBC2.

I believe so, extra maps. Larger maps.

Yea I think it is too. I like the feel of that era, plus the music and the maps make it great. I vote it's worth it.
