Re: Battlefield 2 1.50 patch details and release date. Free expansion packs.

on a positive note i really enjoyed the new maps on BF2 so if you have the game and not played it in a while get the patch and give it a try.

the 1.5 is an incremental i believe so you will need 1.41 if you haven't played in a while

You can only get a ranked BF2 server from multiplay.
Shadey deals with EA and all that _


Atleast thats how it used to be. Is it different now?

No problem, it seems a bit quiet tonight, but through the week it is normally pretty full! last night it was full from around 6pm until 3 am.

Re: Battlefield 2 1.50 patch details and release date. Free expansion packs.

Bloody good craic chaps. Dust off those copies of BF2 and come and join us on the =A*UK= server. The new patch really livens the game up and if you haven't already tried the new maps you owe it to yourself to do so without delay. They're excellent and the server is one of the best I've been on.
