Battlefield Bad Company 2 Almost Perfect

May 23, 2005
Had this game for like 3 days now and allow me to vent a little. Online multiplayer is awesome. I love the destructability, the way the game can change when cover is blown away but this game is lacking one major thing. Communication. There is absolutely NO COMMUNICATION of any sort. No one talks. Most of the time i don't know what the hell is going on. Who is going where and who's doing what. It turns the game into a solo crusade which is not what its suppose to be. If that's the case i might aswell play the single player campaign. I feel like i made a major mistake buying this game. If i knew that the multiplayer is quiet. I would've gone for Modern Warfare 2. I googled this problem and found its widespread. Just simply NO ONE TALKS. Not even joining a squad helps. Anyone on here experience the same problem. And yes this is a problem because i play for myself which is a shame because enjoy playing as a team.

You expected more from online shooters? The only MP I even bother with anymore is Halo, and even then it's mostly custom matches with friends. The online shooter scene is just crap these days. Or maybe I'm just bored of the whole scene altogether...probably a little of both.

You could try the Tom Clancy games. More adults play those types of games and if you can get with a group of people who play it a regular basis, it's a lot of fun. I would also suggest the new Flashpoint, but it seems no one plays it online. Pity, it's a good game. But that's expected given it's nature.

That said, there isn't much you can do about it. I also find it funny that you already know it's a widespread problem and still post about it on here asking if people are experiencing the same problem. Obviously they are. I get the sense this is more of a rant than anything else. But I like rants, sometimes you just gotta rage.

So, by all means, rage. :pissed:

In the bushes.
I'm glad no one talks. I like the fact i've literally never muted anyone because of singing, music, random shouting, racism down the mike.
No one is going to bother with tactics, so at least there isn't the usual annoying **** going on. Also, you (if they were talking) you can only hear your squad. Not the whole team.

Anyway, it would probably be slightly helpful if people tried tactics, but just staying with your squad is a good start.
