Where are the BFBC2 Players?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
So I bought BFBC2 last night. I saw that there were 2 OCN servers and could not wait to get in and rape some face with some fellow members. How, dissappointed I was. I swear, I saw tumbleweeds rolling through the map as I stood in an empty game server. I see several threads that are still talking about the game. Which guns are better etc. But I see a lot of threads that have not seen a post in 6+ months. Even the groups on Steam that I joined are dead. Including the Official OCN group.

So, where are people playing?
Did I waste $20 on a game thats dead?
Why is OCN paying for servers that NO ONE is even playing in?

Signed,
Disappointed

same thing here, i always let it just put me in a game and it always puts me in an empty server.
post #5 of 11
The 'play now' feature always puts me in empty servers that are half way across the globe.... I do a search for specific gametype and sort by ping. There are plenty of active servers, but I can't say anything about the OCN servers as I've never played on them.

The game certainly isn't dead. It's difficult to get top ranked servers and OCN just didn't have what it took. There's still millions playing this game.

Use the server browser.

Server Browser, Search, Sort by # of players.
Highest # of players with the lowest ping. Thats how I do it at least.
post #8 of 11

OCN doesn't pay for the servers.

Getting the servers started means someone has to either find 10 friends to log in at the same time or just play alone for a long time.

Feel free to start.
