I have BF2 and I only play infantry only servers because of the horrible balance with vehicles. Especially the air vehicles.

So how's the balance in BF 2142? That walking mechwarrior tank looks cool and powerful. The flying vehicles look strong, too.

never played bf2142..

but normal vehicles arent *that* unbalanced in bf2.

air is rediculous, though.



i pretty much *only* play mashtuur, because the choppers generally arent that bad.

Air is weak in 2142. Not useless but nothing at all like BF2. The rest of the vehicles are decent. Not over powering, but still fun. Over-all I'd say they play less of a role in general then they did in BF2.. but not by much.

2142 isn't as good as it used to be all of a sudden. Many of the best servers are FF=off now. It seems like the favorite and most current "exploit" is to suit up as recon and RDX as a frontline weapon.

I find BF2142 to involve too many cheap and dirty tactics. RDX whoring was carried over from Karkand (BF2).

I still like to play on well admin'ed Gulf of Oman and Sharqi servers

a sharp squad kills the whores b4 they get too close :)

the vehilce arent overpowering in 2142- a good engineer saves the day by mining and shooting armor and air. and turrets abound

Lol, airpower in bf2142.

If the only vehicles weren't the equivalent of flying rocks to 2/3s of the people attempting to use them,the majority of the maps aren't big enough to allow anything other than a constant turn.

I'd only seen a friend play BF2 once and I thought it looked all right, picked up BF2142 and I absolutely love it. I actually find that the balance is good, maybe even favoring anti-vehicle weapons too much (To get rid of the motion mines you have to jump out and blow them up, not conducive to staying alive in a fight). I've heard of the RDX ploy, but fortunately I don't see it much on the servers I play on, they seem to be clean (BROS and the AOW servers usually have good competition for beginning to moderate skill levels). Lupi is so right about the flying rocks in the hands of the inexperienced, i laughed out loud when he said that. You just have to see for yourself a new guy hopping into an air vehicle, wobbling a little to the right and left, then just rolling backwards off the Titan air deck and blowing up by hitting the side. Anyway, go get it! That's my two cents.

Not even. I play BF2142 on a 1800+ with a 7600 and a gig of RAM. I have no complaints in smaller games. Theres some lag in full 48/60 player games but nothing intolerable.

I've been playing for 2 weeks and I've noticed the following.

Regarding the balance question, I would say that the game is very well balanced. Its definately a rock paper scissors scenario. The RDX mines really atren't too bad as long as pay attnetion and have a support guy in your squad to pick up the cloakers you should be all set. Oh, and I am totally a cloaker terrorist, lol. I totally feel the feeling of pure glee when I RDX a silo and get to blow up a whole squad who come for the cap. Almost as good as cloaking, creeping up to sniper and knifing him. ;-) Ofcourse, more often than not, I miss with the knife and they kill me. But, when I don''t F it up, I love it lol.

Most of the time air is underused and improperly used. Most people can't fly to save their lives. I have, however, seen people dominate the game with an attack chopper. Some fellow name CrazEsquirrel or something like that single handedly defeat my team 2 days ago. We were playing titan and had the other sides shield down when ours was still at 50%. It should have been a sure win, but this fellow was phenomenol in the chopper. Every time we tried to land a transport on their titan, he eradicated our chopper before it even got close. Try podding in from an APC. The second we landed, boom, dead.

So while we were dieing to him in mass, they took over all the silos, hopped on our titan and game over.

Unfortunately, we were all noobs and couldn't shoot him out of the sky. :(

Anywho, I go under Bonger_Jr in the game.
