The RPS BFBC2 Server Rides Again

Multiplay have given us a Battlefield: Bad Company 2 server to use while we warm up for Battlefield 3. It’s live now. Join me! You’ll probably need to search for it in the server browser, so the full name is Multiplay :: Rock, Paper, Shotgun UK Server. I believe the search is case sensitive.

    Get it streaming and keep the cheaters out, if you are going to leave it running for any period of time:

    • Asskicker says:

      I fully agree with this man, it really helps against cheaters. (If there are any)

    • Duality says:

      If the powers that be read this and decide to do it – contact me on the PBBans site (via PM or whatever, I go by the same name there) and I will provide any help I can.

  2. Doesntmeananything says:

    I weep, for I am far away from UK and get ping around 100. Weep, I say!

    • Tomm says:

      That seems about standard for BC2, the pings are always massively elevated. I’m in the UK and connect to UK and Europe servers and never get pings lower than 100.

    • Ringwraith says:

      A ping of 200 is completely normal, and the game runs fine.
      I think it calculates it somewhat differently than most things.

    • Duality says:

      BFBC2 displays latency, rather than ping – meaning that the number measured is the time taken for the entire round trip (there and back) rather than just there. Divide by 2 (approximately) to obtain your real ping value.

    • Doesntmeananything says:

      Well, the ping that is showed in the server browser is the ‘real’ ping, I believe, and in the actual game you get highly inflated number that is not representative of anything. And I get 100 in the browser. I *can* play, but that is a pretty heavy delay for a fast-paced FPS.

      Edit: Look above for a masterful explanation.

    • max pain says:

      Lol bf2 fast-paced fps? Try nexuiz on any minsta server sometimes :P

  3. Asskicker says:

    Damd you RPS! I’m in the middle of my exams, why did you do this?!

  4. Scott says:

    Will be joining you folks shortly!

  5. TheBlobThing says:

    Great! Hoping to get a spot later tonight.

  6. washaa says:

    And I just bought this game today. Bloody fine timing! I’ll try to join together with my brother later on tonight.

  7. MiniMatt says:

    Yay – a bullet magnet by the name of “Rainor Shine” (currently with a staggeringly impressive 0.49 k/d ratio) will be joining later this eve.

  8. Valvarexart says:

    A, you have to wait for several long moments in a que :(

    • Valvarexart says:

      AND it kicked me for something to do with Punkbuster. That has never happened to me before.

    • MiniMatt says:

      Noticed a few weeks back that punk buster updates aren’t always happening particularly well at the mo and manually updating from link to oft does the trick.

    • Valvarexart says:

      Got it to work now, but wow was that a hassle.

    • Daiv says:

      You, sir, are clearly a punk, and need to be busted. As such I have nothing more to say to you. Good day to you, sir. Good. Day.

  9. db1331 says:

    I’m tempted to hop on and hone my shotgun sniping skills again.

  10. Vagrant says:

    This leaves out the important detail: Conquest or Rush (or at least mixed)?
    Because Conquest is vastly superior to Rush.

  11. razgon says:

    Nah, Rush is pretty damn fun ;-)

    Anyways, great stuff, I’ll be sure to join you people later tonight!

  12. Shakermaker says:

    Filled to the brim already. Maybe ask Multiplay very kindly if we could have a 32 player server?

  13. trooperdx3117 says:

    Just played a few rounds on the server and i can say its the most fun i’ve had in a multiplayer game in ages! I reccomend heartily for everyone to join your rps chums on the server right now!

  14. clive dunn says:

    I was playing the other night and managed to tag a guy with a flare who was sniping about 4000 miles away. Got a lock and sent a rocket soaring straight up into the sky and then sat back as it took about 4 seconds to traverse the map and kill this guy in his little hidyhole. What do i get in return for this? “CG noob, go fuck yrself”.
    The resurrection of the RPS server cannot come quick enough frankly.

    • adseib says:

      Don’t let jerks get you down, you dunn really good!

    • skurmedel says:

      There’s a guy like this on almost every BFBC2 server it seems. I saw two persons on opposite teams the other day engage in the following discussion:

      Person 1: cg noob
      Person 2: stfu fag
      Person 2: pwned
      Person 1: go away noob

      And so forth. It’s not Xbox Live standards of vitriol, but sometimes it’s pretty annoying even when you try your hardest not to care.

  15. Poindexter says:

    Yay! A reason to continue my journey toward that Platinum star for my beloved Mk14 Mod 0 Enhanced Battle Rifle! I’m 3/4 of the way there!

  16. frenz0rz says:

    5 out of 5 in the queue? Christ, I’ve never had to wait that long before. Im sure everyone would agree that a 32 slot server would be lovely! And probably just as rammed.

    Come on you damned people, leave! Leave, so I can join! I’ve nearly hit 1500 kills with the AN-94 and I want to do it today!

  17. Davee says:

    Thank you, RPS!
    I just recently got back into BC2 in anticipation of BF3. I would be playing on the server right now if there weren’t 7 (seven!) people in queue to get in! :P

  18. cairbre says:

    I cant seem to fnd the server I type in as much as I cant fit and get nothing back. God dam it.

  19. cairbre says:

    Maybe the server has crashed or maybe I am an idiot!

  20. Sami H says:


  21. cairbre says:

    found it horray

  22. washaa says:

    Well fuck, since I bought the game today it takes hours to update. Currently on 55%.

  23. MiniMatt says:

    I just rode cliffski’s chopper. Now there’s something I didn’t think I’d say this morning.

  24. cairbre says:

    well the standard is high

  25. Xocrates says:

    hmm… may hop in and try to reach level 1 :P

    • Resonance says:

      As may I.
      I suck at Battlefield..

    • Nameless1 says:

      You’ll never improve by not playing. Try different classes and weapons and find yours :)

  26. cairbre says:

    Its a good server when I was on everyone played as a team. Imagine that!

  27. Bender says:

    still 2 of 5 in queue…. doesnt someone of you mmh need to pee or something?

  28. TheBlobThing says:

    I think the profanity filter disabled my text chat :(

  29. tripwired says:

    For those of you having trouble finding the server, go to Multiplayer > Server Browser and in the search box on the right type ‘Multiplay’ then Search. It will be displayed in the results list – about half way down for me. Remember that it’s case sensitive.

    Make sure you’re not filtering the results to exclude Full servers, as it’s pretty popular tonight!

  30. Carra says:

    You guys read my mind. This game arrived two days ago from your tiny island to my home :)

  31. Mark says:

    Man, BC2 got its claws into me. Played for about three hours straight. Still great. :D

  32. dsi1 says:

    But why Rush :(

  33. razgon says:

    Server not up?

  34. aircool says:

    Bagsy being the guy that can’t shoot straight, has no idea what the plan is, get’s shot within milliseconds after spawning, but is cautious enough to act as a roaming spawn point just under that bit of wall next to the thing you blow up/defend.

  35. Nallen says:

    Is this down at the mo?

  36. superpings says:

    This is good but this will probably help you out more
