I wouldn't say it was a waste of money, especially because I picked it up for $20... but I have only installed BF2 once since buying it and played it only a handful of times. Unless you become very skilled at using the vehicles, the game can be incredibly frustrating. Something about getting strafed by some leet-dude in a chopper every 20 seconds just gets old fast. Basically your only defence against it is to get on an anti-air gun and hope you can get him before he gets you... or be a douche and steal a helicopter when it spawns.

I always thought the game had potential, but it doesn't really deliver for me. Possibly if I put more time into it I'd enjoy it a bit more, but with so many other games that I do enjoy... it just isn't worth it.

that's one of the only downfalls, wide open maps with lots of aircraft, infantry gets slaughtered. That's why I prefer Karkand, sharqi, jalalabad. Still, Wake Island can be a lot of fun if both teams have decent pilots. If you want to avoid that all together though, play Special Forces, no jets!

Wake island is never fun unless you're working with an organized squad. The Chinese jet is so hideously imbalanced. You say it can be fun if both teams have decent pilots, but in reality the US pilot has to be fantastic and the Chinese pilot has to be terrible for it to be even. The J10 is just so much better, and on a map where the US starts away from the mainland, if the J10 pilot is competent the US will never reach the shore.

I never play wake because it attracts tards like a magnet. Everybody wants to whore the J10

Agreed. The J10 is uber imbalanced. Hitbox the size of a pixel and insane maneuverability.

I've only had maybe 2 games on that map where we couldn't make it ashore because of the pilots, otherwise I've always enjoyed it.

I play Infantry Only...Karkand and Jalalabad only. I don't like the other maps so much (I did like Wake a lot with vehicles).

I was at .65 kdr for several months, then went up to 1.0, then 1.2.

It took a while to find a class I liked, and to get the better guns. The medic guns are really good, but I only play Support/Sniper when I do go on.

Most of bf2 (any game, for that matter) is just getting around the map effectively. Keep playing...bots are fun to kill when you can't kill any real people

i can understand what hes talking about.
maybe he can't play these games, maybe he is just rubbish at them no offence to him.

but im not so good at BF2 or COD or enemy territory.

but.. i dont get much practice i play racing games most of the time and im fantastic at them, people have different strengths and weaknesses i guess.
