all the more reason I ignore the complaints from the 3 actual attackers about teams being uneven. Teams aren't uneven number-wise, but I'm not gonna switch over if the rest of the people are having a pow-wow on that stupid rock. I agree though, it does suck. There's an element of this game that reminds me of ETQW. If you don't complete objectives, you lose. Simple.

here is something fun to do when the attackers have a bunch of snipers up on the hill, go assault, switch to smoke grenade launcher instead of grenade launcher, sit on an ammo crate in the B pit where you can't be sniped, on forward slope near the bottom, initiate smoke grenade barrage at the rock and top of the hill, snipers thwarted or at least get's them to move to a new spot for crying out loud!

I don't cheat with 3rd party programs, hacks all that blatant crap, but if I happen to come up on an exploit that'll make me better at the expense of someone who doesn't know about it, I'll sure as hell use it.

I know a couple exploits for iRacing, and I use them at the tracks they work on. Makes me faster which means I win more, and who knows who else will be using them. If I can do it in game without any modification, fair game. If they don't want us doing that, patch it.
To be honest this is the generic response from anyone using exploits.

It's easy to mock the other person for getting angry about it, and some people do get waaaay too angry about it, but it's still wrecking the game experience for everyone else and is very childish and selfish. As you said there are much bigger things to worry about in life, which is why escapist media such as gaming etc are so popular in our world. It's an escape that people enjoy, immersing themeselves in a different personality & environment and achieve. It sounds sad when it's said like that, but that is EVERYONE'S motivation for gaming whether they choose to admit it or not.

The excuse that "who knows who else will be using them" is barely even worth commenting on. Lots of people get away with bullying others to get their way in life, why shouldn't you? They are at an advantage.

Unfortunately it's rarely as easy as just patching the exploit. Things are more complicated than that, and patching an exploit (if possible without a major overhaul) will just lead to another exploit becoming known/popular.

The whole point of this post is to outline one thing you're obviously missing: moral obligation. Doesn't matter if it's in real life or a virtual world, it's the manner in which you treat others. We're all trying to enjoy ourselves, and enjoyment at the expense of others is cheap and selfish.

This game is getting very difficult for me to play. I've only played the beta once. I've tried multiple times. Sometimes it's because I can't connect to the server... actually a lot of times it is... last night my internet went down (not EA's fault at all, but still adds to the frusteration), I just tried to play right now and right after I hit the ground punk buster kicked me... something about even teams... and then I couldn't reconnect... I've been waiting for this game for days and can barely play it... anyone else having these kinds of issues?

I wonder was the server side maintenance they did related to PunkBuster. My friend was kicked a few times last night with PB errors and it's the first I've heard of it.

My usual PB fix seemed to work for him if you want to try it, Forumla7:

Download the Windows version of PBsetup.exe here.

Run the application and let it update. Add BFBC2 from the "Add Game" list, then check for updates. Used to work for me before so it's worth a shot!

Thanks a lot! I'll try that in a bit. I finally got on for a good while. And man... I suck! LOL. I guess I'm used to the chaotic, run n' gun play of TF2. I felt pretty lost. It was a ton of fun, but I'm not too sure what I'm doing... at least not yet.

Few questions. How the frick do I pick up stuff thrown at me? Med kits, ammo, etc. I try E but no luck. Also, can I open doors, or do I just have to blast through them? And what's the melee button? I'm such a n00b at this game, haha. But I love it! I hope I can get better quick.

Btw... it seems we have to unlock all the stuff in the preorder offer, correct?

And, lastly, any tips at getting better? I'm dying here... a lot.
Are we gonna have our own server (OCN)?

Just stand over the boxes to use them. They disappear when they are depleted.

Enemies can use them too so be careful where you put them.

You can bind the melee key in options. You can also use melee to break doors to save ammo and reduce noise, etc.

Get used to using cover, and knowing where the enemy is. Don't run out and try to engage people, try to catch them when they are running out to engage you or advance. Make sure you check the area before you go running across the road, etc.

TF2 lets you DM people face to face.

You can't really do that in BFBC2

Thanks man... I looked at the boxes every time and whas like "What do I do!?!?!" Which doesn't help much when you're on the brink of death.

Thanks for the cover tip, it's obvious and logical... but in my excitement, I just wanted to shoot people. Lol.

It's gonna be weird having to be a lot more cautious. I've been playing a bit of TF2 lately and am pretty used to it.

Also... any idea on if there with be an OCN server?

one question, why does the PS3 beta look way better(gun textures, texture depth) than the one on PC? I was thinking maybe because of the PC beta not being that far along?
