Battlefield: Bad Company 2 PC Multiplayer Launch Has Problems

The fact is a right now the BFBC2 multiplayer is in need of serious help. Random disconnects for no apparent reason, Punkbuster kicks or not even being able to log into the game are keeping the majority of people out of out of multiplayer matches. EA is "aware" of the problem. (Battlefield: Bad Company 2, PC)

EVERY Battlefield game has trouble at launch. Seriously. 1943 didn't work for a few days, the first Bad Company was broken for several weeks, etc.

It's OK. I still love them.

You're right but shouldn't that mean they should be more careful/better about launches if they have a history of problems?
Voozi  +   1885d ago
They should considering DICE has a HORRIBLE track record for Battlefield games at launch. Anyone who's been playing since the start knows this. But nothing's changed, we "veterans" of the series have pretty much become accustomed to this by now, sadly.

All I can say to these new comers complaining, welcome aboard ;)

Just wait till DICE starts patching stuff, and enjoy your patches meant to fix bugs that create more bugs :P

No worries DICE! I still love you guys.

Guess I have been lucky
I've only had one game with any of the troubles mentioned. I'm sure everything will be fixed soon enough, as trying as it may be for some.

Still loving Dice and dedicated servers!

why complain just do story while the problems are sorted could see problem if you payed online like the 360 but online is better and its free i really not botherd. ps3360 if you mean canceled the order pc and you got pc able to run then you made the wrong decision the graphics are nearly as good as crysis i would say there on par and the online is going to be lot better more players mods friendley comuiity ps3 is not that bad but resistance is full rasist people most of time iam ob makes me sick xbox live is the worst people can be so horrible and on pc its like there just more mature people on there.

Can't see the article, what problems are people having exactly? So far I haven't seen any problems. In fact I love this game.

I'll admit, yesterday I had some serious problems, but today it seems to have been fixed. Still loving the game.
Vortex3D  +   1885d ago
That is a standard "feature" for just about every new multiplayer games at launch. Can't wait to play the game immediately at launch, accept the problems.

I refused to rush to play new games online immediately.

I'm glad the gamers who can't wait to play are doing the beta testing for me so that I do play online, many of the bugs have been fixed.

This is why I try to avoid the Multiplayer of most games at Launch ...
... Singleplayer till it's all done.

Luckily, I'm not going to be able to get this game for a while, but when I do, things'll have been sorted out good and proper.

All good for me
I had one failed connection, so I played half hour of single player, restarted the game a voila all good.

As for PB kicks make sure to run an update of PB and all should be good.

Other than that I has been nothing but thumbs up from me, I'll be on again after work :-)

I have no issues on the ps3 version apart from the store is down..great game btw.
Szarky  +   1885d ago
FIX THE PS3 STORE! It's been down for 3 days now. What was the point of the pre-order bonus?
1PC2PS33360  +   1885d ago
have not had a single issue...already clocked in over 8 hours in mp...game runs flawless 100 frames per second...looks sooo nice in motion... both console versions on the other hand are a mess....blurry low res textures...no aa or af...lol...and it's $10 more......thats so lame.....console ports of pc games should be $20 out the door...it's such a gimped experience....PC FTW!!

Works well enough.
Punk buster problems are an easy fix. Delete the beta, and update punk buster. Fixed.
As for connection problems, should be worked out soon. I have trouble connecting sometimes. But once I'm in I'm IN.
No lag so far. That's fantastic. : )
KingKiff  +   1885d ago
I'm in Australia and I have been on UK and US servers with no lag!!!
GamerPS360  +   1885d ago
I had few problem lunching MP as well. Punkbuster kept kicking me out.
But, it's all good now except refreshing server list takes about a minute.
Pandamobile  +   1885d ago
Just like every other major release.

They might be updating their game right now, as no one is able to connect to ea serv's as of this moment.
