Well in my opinion EA is just trying to make a game to compete with ET Quake Wars.
This game sure seems like its trying to be  ETQW.I think EA couldnt come up with a game to compete with ETQW and they just slapped sticked this dressed up so called new game into a BF2 with some new skins and a new game mode.There is a huge resemblence to ETQW ,you can even get that vibe by watching the official trailers to both games and the narrators comments.. Choosing sides , who will win ect ect .

BF2 was a great game, but if we want to be punished with issues like we all were in BF2 then 2142 is the game for you.. If you want to expand your multiplayer skills and experience give a game like ETQW a try. Its just a matter of time to see how this all plays out .I would bet any amount of money that 2142 is destined to be bugged and full of crap like BF2 turned out . The constant bitching to EA made lame adjustments to the game, the stupid rules they lay down the gay rules some server admins place in game, the constant ratting from player to EA via the ROE and all that crap...

I'm sure I'll get it . ETQW is a ways off still... But I just find it odd how its so simular to BF2 and how 2142 seems like a serious attempt at some games to come

I'm picking up 2142. I've been in the mood for a good sci-fi shooter since I stopped playing PlanetSide. The graphics are better by far in the BF series.

Besides, the engineer gets such cool stuff! I'm going engy baby!! EMP mines? Tracking mines?? SWEET!

Not really sure yet but I've looked at both game's gameplay videos and they look somewhat promising... all except to the point I found these VideoGoogle videos of BF2142 gameplay and watched this one guy play, ugh, he was all trying to TK someone who was going for a battlwalker so he could take it, then when someone got in a jeep, he was all shooting at it just like some of the idiots in BF2 have done in the past (and 'accidentally' got those lucky headshot moments as I was driving away). Really stupid stuff and I thought "BF2's still there... damnit..."

Or put time restrictions on the point you die in a vehicle and can't go in it for like... 2 minutes or something, kind of like a 'ban' to help a person come to realiziation that a vehicle's an asset, and not some toy to go taking out on a joyride, that there's a purpose to these things and they shouldn't be abused.

That'd still leave options for morons to tk at other flags which probably house other vehicle assets, not only that but it'd impose idiocy to watch others knife fight ot waste ammo on each other at point blank range in the face. As much 'fun' as they might seem for them, they should actually be playing the game not screwing around.

Shooting randomly is in the game,so if people payed for it and they enjoy it let them.

I suppose, but that would defeat the purpose of people's hopes of BF2142 rewarding teamwork over BF2's already ruined gaming status. As I've noticed, BF2142 is more focused in such aspects whereas in BF2, you'd be lucky enough to see several squads working in junction as people only join squads to make sure they aren't teamswitched by server options or to get squad member/leader time for a ribbon, either way it's a selfish demise that leaves opportune players to work twice as hard.

But I don't think I have ever seen a tk at another base.  Noobs usually just tk in the beginning of the round where all the big vehicles are in the uncap.

Yeah but sometimes those flags aren't uncaps, some maps will have the uncap function going on but sometimes at certain map sizes they don't and it'll be utterly horrible to try and get a vehicle, at which point it's just much safer to take it on foot to the closest flag or grab a jeep and go.

After playing the beta I can say 2142 has a much differnet feel than BF2, its not just a mod.  IF EA/DICE take some time to iron out the bugs and gameplay issues then I think they will both be awsome.

Wrong.


It is evident that 2142 is just trying to play catchup to ETQW so EA gets their little share of market-pie.

Yes, because back in 2002, it wasnt DICE that really made the genre of tactical map vehicle and FPS combo really stand out. Its *obviously* DICE trying to copy Quake.

...really.

Quake wars came *after* BF2. BF2142 came out, just like BF:V came out - DICE is trying to keep the whole thing fresh (noted, is the popularity of BF1942:DC even after BF:V came out). DICE is not trying to "copy* Quake Wars (note as well that there are *extremely* large differences between the games - not just cosmetics, not just copycat stuff, but HUGE differences). It is simply their effort to keep the genre fresh.

It should also be noted that Quake wars has linear checkpoint captures, vehicles that are supceptible to small arms, and *no permanent ranking system*. Oh yeah, didnt know that? Your rank resets every 3 maps.
