I had big troubles learning to fly helicopter in Desert Combat, but after a while I got pretty much awesome at it.

But flying the ones in BF2 is much harder. I need to train...
I've seen some who's got the hang of it, so I know it's possible.

Yea flying the helicopter in BF2 demo is quite easy, much easier then flying the plane for some reason. The map is way tooo small to fly a plane in properly, although there was no proper map in BF:V to fly any plane in. Hint with flying the helicopter, only to make very small adjustments, also using an axis to control the throttle is much easier then having two states (on or off)

Also I have a CH Products HOTAS setup and it seems to loose my setup every time I reboot :( . It sucks becuase I play really well using it.

I got the full game now.

It's a bit annoying when you get connection problem, you hang for a second and then you're facing a different direction. I get completely lost every time.

hopefully be getting the full game tomorrow, followed closely by a PC upgrade lol.

God the more I play it the more i love it though. When you get a good commander and a good squad some of the stuff that you can pull off is unreal.

in the demo i love playing as  the US, loading a whole squad onto a boat and going on a raid to blow the enemy artilliery. Its always tense as hell but usually works. The really fun part is fighting your way back through enemy lines to get to your next objective. Like when everyone dashes accross a street and one guy goes down and your like 'Shit' so you dash back out into enemy fire while the rest of the guys cover u, revive the guy on the street and everyone legs it to the next flag. that shit is just awesome.

I've got the Demo, I should be picking up the full version soon. It is one of the few good games that are coming out now.

I've not tried BF2, but I'm not that big a fan of BF1942. Sure, it was fun, but it always irritated me how all infantrymen were equipped with assault rifles (or more correctly, the predecessors of assault rifles). I mean, there's the reenactment of some part of the german battle in Russia, and half the germans are equipped with MG44. The weapon didn't even exists at the time. I'd much preferred it if they used more correct choice of weapons (carbines and rifles, that is). When I play it, I only play engineer, sniper or medic.

yeah Torp that kind of bothered me about the game as well although I was hopelessly addicted to it.

On the battle of Stalingrad all the Russian guys are running around with this machine gun (the name escapes me) that wasnt even invented till the very end of the war. Why not just give them AKs lol. Not only that, most of the troops didnt even have food, let alone guns although I guess it would suck to spawn as a guy with no weapon, frostbite and stomach pains.

Day of Defeat was great for a relatively accurate portrayal of WWII era weapons while maintaining the fun. One shot from a K98 WILL KILL YOU.

It seems in BF2 that one shot is enough to kill me, no matter what weapon the opponent uses, even if I'm in a tank.

But when I try to kill someone I have to waste half my ammo, and most of shots do  hit them right in the head. Something's seriously wrong.

The lag is horrible.

Trez, welcome to an online FPS. It seems that way in just about every game, although it is nice to be on the other side of that story sometimes.

...On a completely different note: I love killing people with the shock paddles XD

I tried shutting down bitcomet now, it worked alot better.
I got silver medal  ;D

Played some matches on a small map server.
My team got owned every damn game, but I got ranked second best player in the game. I was best of the bad, and almost best of all.

Also got some assault prize when I did a kickass raid with a tank, all on my own.
