    The master server "Plasma" went down last night. They rolled our R5 for servers whilst this happened and corrected alot of server issues, such as configs not reloaded with a server restart.

    I have been loving this game, so much so that I missed out n checking Bit-Tech for 2 days.... plenty of reading... or just more gaming. ZiiP has it's server up, so feel free to add me as a friend or find our server.

    See you on the battlefield! (I don't know many servers apart from the GTFOGaming ones, the rest with "UK" badges sometimes lack the low pings I'd like)

    Played a couple of rounds on the ZiiP server and had a great time, HC mode is sooo much better. Multiple kills with one sniper bullet Cheesecake. All needs now is for Dice to sort out the disconnection/crashing problems.

    Loving HC mode on the Ziip server! The recon class becomes so much more fun to use

    Have you uninstalled the Beta?

    Also, servers needed a restart this morning for the R5 update. That seemingly fixed the disconnect/kick issues.

    Yeah, "Play Now" works though. It's the server list that's gone weird.

    Fix'd it by updating BC2, now the CPC server has crashed, and I can't be bothered with the server browser.

    What seems to work quite often if you cannot log in normally is, instead of logging in, go to the "multiplayer" drop-down menu and select "My stats" this seems to force a login with a higher chance of success.

    DICE has told servers to shut off PB, so this may cause issues in the near future. They have been very proactive with getting issues sorted, but with so many users (I think it's more than they anticipated) it will take some time to iron the kinks out.

    Anyone get 'Account Could Not Be Found'? First time logging in and used the same EA login as BF2142 but it won't let me in.

    Well I played singleplayer for a couple of hours last night (which is pretty awesome I have to admit), occasionally dropping out to try and connect. Could sign in to EA but could not join any servers. It would either time out or show "server full" even though it says 25/32 playing. I even tried some of the less busier servers but still no success.

    I just hope they get this sorted out quickly. I'm getting p*ssed off paying for a MP game only to get connection issues. Was bad enough hoping to get paired with a low ping host using IWnet, now we have dedicated servers and I still can't f*cking join. SORT IT OUT EA/DICE!!!

    I got everything working and my pre-order unlocks.

    I am in awe of this game, its brutal, fast paced, the on-line is awesome, it feels good to run people over in the apcs.

    Well worth the money, even the single player is half bearable :D
