    Just started playing this again - quite easy to find 12 vs 12 games, probably because of the Games With Gold freebie a few months back.

    A word of warning - level 50 heli circlers make Atacama and Oasis almost unplayable with newer players, and half the time you'll join a game after everyone's got sick of being spawn camped and buggered off. It's almost impossible to find a Vietnam game with more than five people in it as well.

    It's still amazing though..

    Had a blast on this today. My PC motherboard is fucked, so dusted off the 360.
    Had a few good games. Oasis is fucked, due to circling heli's. But it was brilliant how all those tactics and reflexes came flooding back. Had a few empty servers, and only got games with max 8 others. But its still limping along!

    Who fancies playing BC2 again?

    I own an Xbox for the first time in 6 years so have started playing this again with stivayou. We've generally found pretty full servers when we've tried late weekend evenings, although weirdly only when he searches for a game (I just get put into 1 vs 1 matches for some reason).

    It's free on game pass now, and is playable on 360, One and Series S/X, so no excuses 😃

    I know there were a few regulars who no longer use EG (rip Brett/ Fletch et al), but I might send them a message on Xbox too).

    I'd definitely be up for it - got an S I can start playing at Christmas and BC2 is what got me into the series (and is still by far my favourite).

    Tried the PC version but everyone was playing Harvest Day as a sniper - yawn.

    @andytheadequate

    Thanks! You may be best to add me as I may forget about adding you before Christmas rolls round and I fire the S up!

    GT is CinderN.

    PS. I'm not very good but my ammo supplying skills in a squad are top notch.

    Added! Being good is completely optional. The likes of @Triarri are excellent, whereas others are a bit rubbish but enjoy it anyway (@acidsnake).

    I'm hoping @onestepfromlost will join, I always enjoyed his quad bike death rides 😃

    Nice one!

    Shame this doesn't have cross play - have a fair few friends and family who still have the PS3 version who'd be up for it.

    Need to convince them to buy an Xbox...

    I'm sorry, I can't hear your petty insults from atop this pile of dogtags...

    Yeah, it's been great jumping back in though I've noticed a shift in strategies by everyone that will take some getting used to. Mines where there previously weren't and such...
    I've put myself on a no gaming regiment through the week, though I'm up for fridays and weekend nights...

    Added! And this thread was the best thing on EG for a few years after BC2's launch so it deserves a bump 😃

    Does it include the Vietnam add-on?!

    @askew I don't think it's included with GP, but if you already owned it then you should be able to play it still. I always liked Vietnam but some people are special little flowers who found it too difficult (@AcidSnake).

    I've added everyone who's posted their gamer tags. I'll probably be playing this most nights at weekends so if you want to join then just send me a message. Also happy to use party chat, although I know not everyone has a mic.

    Is it worth trying to organise a regular time too? Would 10pm on a Friday work for people?

    You says the XSX has no games?! I love how popular this game is after nearly 11 years 😃

    All signed in and loaded up my old level25 account but attempting quick match I get connection to server is lost. Does this back compatibility thingy work cross gen or am I being silly attempting this on the series x?

    I (Xbox One S) played without issues with Andy (XSX) over the weekend...

    My GT is Stivayou...

    Some of the stats have been borked though, it lost a lot of the tags I had collected, the other stuff seemed fine...

    @PatrickEwing - I use a XSX just fine. I think the problem is caused by quick resume, I got a few connection problems when I used that, but when I quit and relaunched it from scratch it worked fine.

    This game was just bliss and the Vietnam add on was the icing on the cake. Good times.

    Ok, found my BFBC2 disk, installed it, downloaded the DLC. All I need now is Gold and I'm good to go. I'm going to try a couple of test rounds this week to see if I remember what all the buttons do :)

    Tumescent and kiddy at the thought of more BFBC2. Hoping the Warzone addiction will turn me from fairly shit to ferociously average. Could do Friday at 10 if others are keen?

    Mother of God, if Microsoft found a way to bump this to 60fps on the Series X using that yet-to-appear framerate doubling feature I'd be all I've this. Resolution bump too.

    Fuck it, DICE just need to do a remaster including all maps from BFBC 1&2 and 1943. BFBC2 is responsive for my best online gaming sessions back in the day with a full squad of mates.
