Since mid-2008, ive been playing Battlefield 2 nonstop.
I play on version 1.0, which has mods
Now the word 'mods' seems to have two meanings :
- the mods i personally care about, which give you infinite sprint, endless vehicles, atleast 10 jets and 10 helicopters running at the same time, powerful jet afterburner and helicopter torque, etc... call them gameplay pills if you will
- the mods i keep hearing about which i have no interest in, like Project Reality etc... all the community-made modified versions of the game
Though i knew patches existed for the game, i stuck to the 1.0 version (along with the few hundred people who did) and will always do as long as my favorite modded servers exist, because the game is only great when it has so many vehicles spawns and enhanced sprint times, etc..
The other mods, the ones that change core elements and have big cult followings, i dont care about, yet i see how they keep the community enthusiasm fueled and its sad that they're getting taken away
Since i started organizing Battlefield bombing runs on the PC 2 months ago, i had to upgrade to BF2 1.5 because thats what everyone else has, and.... it stinks !
your sprint bar keeps expiring so you'd need like 5 minutes to run across a desert. there's only two jets on the entire map which makes flying a plane a legendary dream that most of us peasant on the ground dare not experience.. (whereas in 1.0 you could hop into a jet whenever you wanted, and it didnt break the game one bit)
vehicles take ages to spawn, are very slow, in addition to a hundred primitive characteristics that make the game totally die
So what im asking here is, since BF3 wont have any mod tools, are you all expecting a similar experience to 1.5 ? such constricted slow-paced retarded action that makes it feel like a resource-less 90s game ?
Or will BF3 break those stale rules and have lots of vehicles (especially jets) which are fast, and infinite (or near-infinite) sprint, etc.. ?
I mean i cant imagine myself playing a 2011 Battlefield game with such a sexy engine and groundbreaking action with just 2 jets in the air and people standing in line waiting for a car to spawn !
P.S. im sure most of you thought "BUNNY HOPPERS AND DOLPHIN DIVERS, GLITCHERS AND HACKERS" when u heard me say v1.0, but it was nothing like that.
You combine the superman elements of the game-enhancing mods, with a powerful team of moderators and server regulars who make sure the game is played fair, and you get yourself the most fast and intense Battlefield experience you could get
Sadly, most BF2 players do not really know what a balanced moderated BF2 v1.0 is. its really, really sad that only a few hundred people play on those superb servers while the rest of the world have this idea about it that it's 'flawed and hacked' as they play their 1.41 or 1.5 versions which compared to 1.0 are like a snail compared to a rocket ..
Just watch this modded balanced action, something most Battlefield veterans never experienced :
tl:drI had a special Battlefield experience for the 2-3 years i played it on enhanced 1.0 (modded) servers that gave you alot of vehicles, fast vehicles, jets at your disposal, crazy C4, infinite sprint etc.. which didnt break the game but only accelerated it while still being balanced and highly moderated and fair, and then i patched my BF2 and 2142 recently and found that the popular Battlefield that the millions play is a slow primitive retarded version of the crazy action i had with the few hundred people who looked past v1.0's few design flaws.
And im wondering whether BF3 will be as slow and pathetic, or action packed with alot of jets and resources.
However, BC2 did fix all those game-slowing aspects, gave us fast vehicles that spawn frequently, and infinite sprint. so thats the only thing i want BF3 to take from BC2..
And no, this isnt just about fast frequently-spawning vehicles and infinite sprint, there's alot more to it, those 2 things are just the most important !
