Since the launch of our very first vanilla Battlefield 2 1.5 server two weeks ago, we have thoroughly enjoyed those classic
16 player maps.
However, out of the box, the original BF2 did not include support for playing with bots on
64 player maps. We like the
BF2ALL64 mod because it does not modify the vanilla BF2, but simply adds support for playing with bots on
64 player maps.
Hence, we decided to create
BF2ALL64 servers for the community, knowing how few servers there are out there.
Today we announce three more servers:
BF2ALL64Playground Server (Unranked)
Together with our first vanilla BF2 server, we now have
64 player ranked servers, just like the original BF2! Our
BFHQ rank system recognizes player scores across our vanilla BF2 server, as well as our
BF2ALL64 servers. That means we get the complete stats including stats for large map vehicles (aircraft, helicopters, boats) which makes the ranking system as comprehensive as the original BF2
The unranked playground server is for anybody to have fun with any
64 map without their stats being ranked.
For best bot performance, all four servers run with
ESAI mod with optimized strategies by the
BF2SP64 community. It is said to be much better than the original BF2 AI. We hope you like it.
Finally, to play on
BF2ALL64 servers, simply install the
BF2ALL64 mod. Download links are on the
Battlefield 2 has been a title that we really enjoyed playing more than a decade ago. We have played but have never hosted a server for the community. Since there are not many servers remaining, especially in our geographical region, we decided to create one.
Hence, today is the launch of our
Battlefield 2 beta server! Although it is not a
BF2Hub official ranked server, we have created a private rank system which is viewable at
bf2.startersclan.com. If you are using
BF2Hub client, configure the
BFHQ to be
bfhq.startersclan.com to see the stats in
BFHQ in-game. Do note that the server is currently in beta, and we may revise the server settings and reset the stats anytime throughout the beta period, until our official launch.
