There seems to constantly be giantbomb users asking if there is an active group of users playing Bad Company 2. The short answer is yes, there are many of us who frequently hop into Battlefield - but the downright terrible steam integration and janky ingame friend lists make co-ordination a pain in the cunt. So here, I am proud to present the official Giantbomb Bad Company 2 Steam group: 

Click here to join.

The steam group chat should make it a lot easier for people to find and join other giantbomb users ingame, as well as letting members know who is online and who actually owns the fucken' thing. I know there are already other threads set up but this should make things slightly easier. It seemed appropriate considering Vietnam dropped recently and people are getting back into the game.

You are oscar mike, giantbomb. 

Love Sweep

I don't have the game on steam, but I guess I can still join the group anyways and see when you're playing, I just need a server name. 
EDIT: Joined.
EDIT 2:  
Steam ID: Bjeck 
Location:  Denmark 
Preferred Playtime: Weekends: pretty much anytime. Weekdays, not after 10-11 pm-ish. 
Vietnam: Nope :(  
Also, I don't have a headset at the moment so I won't be able to talk to you guys :(, maybe I'll get one soon but until then I guess I can just join your conversation and listen to tactics and so on..

Technically it's not a Steam game but an EA game, so you can't fault Steam.  Also I don't have Vietnam...I picked Monday Night Combat over Vietnam.  Plus I mostly play on a 9400M, so I don't think Vietnam would run well...BC2 runs around 25-30fps on low.  >.>

#6 Edited by Mu5hy (133 posts) -

I'm in the US, North Dakota to be more specific.  I work nights during the week, so I don't keep any kind of normal sleep schedule, and I play BC2 whenever I'm in the mood.  I have Vietnam and played the shit out of it that first weekend.  So much that I kind of burned myself out.  Anyway I'm in the group so if you need someone to come in and carry your team, just msg me on steam.

A new Open Bombing Run announcement on the steam group, check it out everyone.

#9 Edited by amir90 (2243 posts) -

Joined, not sure I can play today though.
I have vietnam as well as the core game.
I am up for anything basically.
I usually play after 18:00 just about every day, but don't hold me against that.
I live in Norway (gmt+1 I think)
I prefer to play engineer and medic, but I know how to use the recon assault class.
I am 20 years old and yes, I can join on skype/xfire w/e you guys are using, at least most of the times (people have been complaining and hearing a big buzz sound in the background when talking on skype :/ )

#15 Edited by benjaebe (2870 posts) -

Fuckin' yes, sign me up. I mostly just play Vietnam, but I joined anyway. Is this a UK-mostly thing, because the times on that bombing run are wicked confusing to someone on EST.
Steam name is romzomcom99 but my BFBC2 tag is Benicillin.

#16 Posted by DougWilliams (7 posts) -

Vietnam: Thinking about it.

Oh just a thing! Something that me and my friends are using when gaming.  A good way of communicating could be via Xfire, since it has both ingame chat functions, skype quality VoIP, chatroom-grouping with passwords and forums with a calendar (For possible events).

We have people from all over the world so there should always be someone online willing to play. Ahmad is from Israel, for example, and AcridMeat is from Canada. 
#26 Posted by Wunder_ (1202 posts) -

Ok so heres the deal.  I got a new HD 5770 and want to play BFBC2.  I own it for PS3 and have about 420 hours on it, and i want to own it on PC as well.  Now my question is, 1-can i transfer my online stat data from PS3 to PC. 2-Is there a Demo for BFBC2 on PC that i can play, i haven't played BF on PC since BF2.  3-is the 360 PC controller even good for BFBC2 on PC?

Ok guys here's the deal : in order for me to stop trying to get people together and annoying those who rarely play in the process, im gonna get you into three groups and i'd appreciate it if you cooperate : 

1.) those who are lifeless losers (like me) who are always ready to jump in with a bunch of good friends and have fun 
2.) those who are unfortunately busy with work or whatever other responsibilities and arent as available as group 1 
3.) those who rarely play and who, allow me to say, joined the group just for the sake of joining the group, and never participate 
I'd appreciate it if each one of you adds his name to one of those 3 groups, so i'll know who actually WANTS me to notify them when we're playing, and who wants me to stop spamming them IMs  
We're trying to get events going here, and when you have 103 group members and only 10 who show up - even on weekends - you need to kinda filter the members in order to spare yourself the trouble and stop disturbing those who dont wanna play. 
thanks, reply as quickly as you can please.
#40 Posted by Butano (1920 posts) -

Everytime I get invited, I'm away from my desktop and/or at school with my non-gaming laptop that I have Steam installed on for the older games I own. I'd put myself in group 2. 
Oh, here's my info... 
Steam ID: butanohastey 
BFBC2: Butano 
Localization: USA (California) 
Vietnam: Yup!  
Preferred gametime: Whenever I'm online

#41 Posted by Chronologist (292 posts) -
Huh, I didn't get an email even though you replied to me as well, pure coincidence I saw this post.. 
Anyways I'm probably in group 1, but you don't need to message me in steam. Getting the event notifiers works just fine for me :)

If you're wondering if we all play for funs, we sure do, but do we play with grace? well, we do as of now. But what about the evidence? How could you possibly tell me this without it?
Well, fear not! Because evidence is here! Take a look:  (Bigger image available here)
