    Derp, I totally forgot about this. Anyways, You guys still up for battlefield? ?Bf2 seems to have won the vote, but I don't think we can actually join the same side easily for squad fun. But we can all cram into a teamspeak server and just shoot each other, just as fun. Just remember to go here to grab game and register, you can get your old stats back too if you can remember you username. Doesn't take long at all. http://www.battlelog.co/

    I guess for time does 6 pm uk time sound good? Most people who responded seem to be euro, so that's a good time right?

    Also it really has been a long time since I played it, but I swear empires has better hit detection and doing strafe dances is like instant invincibility. And the nade spam, jeez, its like why give us guns when grenade spam is what everyone seems to default to. Still tons of fun though.

    2142 was really fun. Bad Company 2 was ok, but I thoroughly enjoyed the Bad Company 2 Vietnam expansion. I remember I'd found some trick to play it without actually owning it, though I later bought it. Not sure if that still works, and I don't remember it anyway. Battlefield 2 I never played a great deal of, except that one infantry map which they brought back in BF3.

    So, that went ok kinda maybe... thanks guys who came, but we certainly came to the conclusion that empires is a better game.

    We will however be playing bf3 next weekend I think, probably same time. Hopefully that goes better.

    After playing it, I'm not sure how one would come to that conclusion.

    Maybe it was better back in the day.

    It was better back in the day, well up to a point. Getting stuck in our uncaptureable base has always been a probelm in all battlefields, I think it's just a tad less bad in the later ones because you can spawn on any squad member or even a transport chopper flying around.

    It's just that like in bf1942, people found out it's more reliable to chuck grenades at each other then shoot each other. I think half the problem, well at least for me, was the lag. I've never experienced lag where it wasn't just enemies warping around, but my own character ended up suddenly aiming in random directions or my movement got all funky or I simply warped a meter in some direction, super bizarre.

    Really though, I think it's more a case of the teams we were on kinda sucking, and that always ruins the experience.

    Well it isn't like we can't play tomorrow too or something.

    Still though, the squad thing is limited to 4 in bf3, so this kinda works out assuming mr x and pred are still coming. It isn't like we all couldn't play, but some one would get stuck in a squad all alone.:(

    This thread, and threads like it, remind me that it'd be cool to have a steam group for random games empire people play. So it'd be easier then using the forums, which a bunch of people don't check often and you can't get spammed with handy event announcements saying "come play".

    I kind of forgot about this with the forums being down and all. It's a good thing I have it on dvd so it doesn't take long to install.

    My Origin nick is: OneMadMan

    Edit: Nvm, it will take more than two hours to download updates.
