Breaking: Predictable Thing Happens


When the Modern Warfare 2 thing kicked off I said to my fellow RPSites, "gadzooks, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is so going to capitalise on this." And lo, I see on Blues that EA have posted a Dedicated Server FAQ on the game. "Other games use player-hosted or 'peer to peer' solutions," says Gordon VanDyke, presumably with a smile, "often resulting in a "host with the most" situation; where the player hosting the match has an advantage over other players connected to their game. Everyone else is dependent on the host's internet connection and if they don't have a great connection neither will you regardless how great of an internet you have." (Further PC related info here, via Planet Battlefield.)

Well, it made me laugh. It's a bonus that the game looks pretty good (see old trailer below). Roll on Battlefield 3, I say.
