Only reason it will be slightly worth it is for getting commander.

THAT IS IT. And even now it is borked. Gerber manages to some how pull commander away from me if we both apply for it at start of the round and I am a higher rank, same goes for if Gerber and Dizza both apply(gerber gets it).


Rank has no effect on playing the game other than that. I don't care one bit about another persons rank when playing, all I care is if I can kill them. I could care less about ranks, they are even more worthless than the virtual badges.

Now that I have all my unlocks I can focus on playing on truely fun servers such as the server that is hosting BF2 maps for SF. Or playing on servers hosting community maps.


In fact, I fucking hate this ranked bullshit because it pretty much killed off the custom map/mod community because everybody is so overly concerned with rank. It's a profit making device by EA that ensures that they can retain interest in their stupid bonus packs. SF was a major let down for the most part, only thing that makes me happy about SF right now is that servers are starting to host BF2 maps to play on the SF servers.


What they need to do to make rank be worth 2 shits is make it count as experience where each time you rank up you get slightly better accuracy, or stamina, or when commander your assets are more valuable like the UAV staying in air longer or covering a broader scan area.

Having a 4 star general with a UAV that can scan almost 1/4 of the map, as opposed to a sgt being able to do maybe 1/16 of the map, that would be a HUGE pay off for actually trying to get ranks. As well as provoke people with higher ranks to actually command.


Other than that, when I'm in the chopper every enemy has the rank of "pathetic ant" and deserves to get stepped on.

My rank is barely moving now... It just went to 7%. Only people you will see with a high rank like that are the stat padders and the clans that share a single account.

Saw that too, still seems awful high. I play a ton (since the day of release) and finish in the top 3 around 30% of the time and I just now have 30,000 points. By the time the majority of people are even close to officer ranks they will have moved on to a new game.

You are right, they need to simulate it better.

For instance, if you run behing a general in the game and are going to run ahead of him, and you don't scream out "good afternoon sir, by your leave sir!", you should be punished.

Q&A with Dice about the patch: www.totalbf2.com/articles/article/46


There has been high demand for new game mods such as Capture the Flag or Supply Lines? Have these been recently re-considered in any future patches?

Because of the constant demand, we are currently considering adding new game modes. However, as I have always stated, I make no promises for what is essentially vapor ware at this time.


I REALLY hope they add some new game modes!

It was recently stated that Claymore/C4 pickups would not be included in this patch, can you confirm this?

That is correct. We decided to hold this back because the feature just wasn’t finished enough.

Played for about an hour and a half today.

It is easier to shoot down choppers however the missles still tend to randomly vere off course and go attack friendly vehicles.

I got more team damage points today than I did kills. Dead on locks, wait for the fuckers to pop flares, re-establish lock and fire. Missles go after some other fucking vehicle often times friendly.

STILL FUCKING BORKED!


Further, on Checkmate today I was high up on the valley walls in the linebacker. Helicopter comes along flying below me while I'm aiming down at it. I get a lock and fire, missles don't even go after it but take off after something else giving me friendly vehicle damage. WHAT THE FUCK?
