Sopmehwere in the 40s.

They're taking a more custom character, and the spawn screen is drag and dropping your inventory, instead of better weapons.

So now you can lose to people who've played long enough to get more unlocks, even if you're better than them.

Great!

Yeah that right.

43 ranks,40 unlocks,3 ranks with no unlocks,probably special people that get the uber unlock if you're the best player in the month,the unlock is invincibility.

Plus there are also in-round unlocks. If you work well as a squad you get special unlocks for that round only, which is good because you'll get to try them out. No more "What weapon should I unlock next" threads! Yay!

This is my only worry about 2142, will the unlocks (more so the cammo/shiled abilties) mean that the high ranked people will dominate all the newer people, we'll see though.

Roll on 2142

I like the idea of better unlock customization in BF2142. Also, the combination of various classes makes sense, Sniper/Spec-Ops, Assault/Medic, Engineer/AT.

I wonder though if you will have to choose your unlocks in a specific order or if you can pick one from the list when you rank up. Example: Will the defibrillator have to be your first unlock for Assault, as indicated on the EA site ? Same goes for the Recon's cloaking device. Interviews with EA/Dice developers seem to imply that will be the case. So only the most experiences players will have access to the most advanced weaponry/equipment. Fair enough.

what I find funny though is that the basic frag grenade is now an unlock...

The new improved squad leader "class" is still bit of a mystery to me. Will you have to qualify for SL by using an unlock or will you get the SL beacon and the Accipiter immediately ? Since there are no unlocks listed for SL's I figure it's maybe an unlock for the SL "qualification", nothing more. Does anyone have more information on that ?

As far as proper squad work is concerned, I also like the idea of offering additional motivation and rewards for those who squad up, i.e. the "temporary unlock" for good squad work ( temporary access to the next unlock for your class while you play on the server ), additional global points for squad work ( I have always wanted that, way to go ), improved spotting ( networked battlefield ) among squad members, etc...

I always felt that BF2 didn't provide enough incentive for squad play and didn't really cater to those who played in squads regularly. EA/Dice are definitely headed in the right direction now.

I also wonder if we will be able to continue to use our existing BF2 accounts in BF2142. I am not talking about the global points, of course, I doubt we will be able to keep those for BF2142. But I'd like to keep playing with one account for both BF2 and BF2142. I am running out of e-mail addresses. The best thing would be if EA would make BFHQ independent from the game itself. But I doubt the current BF2 game architecture would support that concept. So we will probably have to make new accounts for BF2142. I hope I can keep my player name. Gotta be quick when signing up...

Anyway, if EA/Dice can keep the bugs we know from BF2 under controk in BF2142, this should prove to be an exciting game.

I do like the sound of the many unlocks and being able to customise different kits.
