Last week EA released their much anticipated shooter Battlefield Bad Company 2 to rabid fans the world over but to their dismay they’ve been given a broken product.
This entire weekend there were hundreds if not thousands of disappointed customers who couldn’t play online across the PS3, Xbox360 and PC. While this problem wasn’t that severe on consoles, it was terribly widespread on PCs with players not being able to connect to servers or being kicked from EA servers constantly.
This is highly ironic since none of these issues were present in the Beta released last month. Also this is really shameful on DICE’s part who portrayed themselves as PC benefactors during the whole Modern Warfare 2 lack of dedicated servers debacle. At least IW didn’t release a broken product huh?
Either way if you’re one of the unfortunate PC users who’s having troubles heading online with their copy of Battlefield Bad Company 2 here are some of the things you can try out:
- Make sure you un-install the Beta from your PC BEFORE you install the game. Once that’s done make sure you delete the Beta folder from your PC completely.
- Manually install the latest version of Punk Buster here.
- If all else fails, pray real hard.
Also if the above mentioned tips haven’t helped out, head over to the game’s official forums and make yourself heard.
