    2142 coming back online

    From the same team that has been working on keeping BF2 alive, they have recently announced that 2142 should be online in september. A good alternative to probably another bad battlefield title coming out this year (I hope it will be great but allow me to be very skeptical). They plan on having NA and EU servers.

    Hey Folks!

    I've got some exciting news to share with everyone today, but first let's take a look at our past, present, and then our bright future.

    It's been a long yet productive 6 months here at Battlelog.co since Spencer and I joined the team. We couldn't be more happy with the work and the goals we've been able to accomplish in this time period. Our BF2 system is now more stable than ever. When we first took over, things were a bit hectic and disorganized, but now we're at a point where everything mostly just works with very few crashes and hiccups within our core services infrastructure. In order to support our growth, we've expanded from running on 3 servers on a dedicated box up to 11 AWS EC2 instances along with various AWS integrated services. This allowed us to break up the important parts of our systems up into smaller pieces while ensuring the core systems that keep us alive are not affected by the less important pieces of the system (ie when the website goes down, the game system stays up!). Since things have been more stable lately, we've had a good opportunity to focus more on some of the important back-end improvements that we've been rolling out day-by-day, as well as adjusting our infrastructure to be more supportive of multiple games.

    Now that we're not as busy with BF2 as we were in the beginning, we've had a bit of free time to play around with a similar project that I know a lot of you have been waiting patiently for and have been hearing rumors about lately. Yup, that's right! Battlefield 2142. At this point we've made some good headway with the project, though there is still a lot of work to be done. Unlike BF2, BF2142 used the EA Accounts system. This complicates things a bit, however it is a challenge that we're happy to take on. At this point in time we've managed to get a completely standalone system up and running for 2142, including statistics, a rewritten master/login server, and our own BF2142 game server. Although we do have this semi-working system, there is still quite a bit of work to be done.

    One of our biggest goals for a 2142 launch is ensuring that the experience for our BF2 veterans is as seamless as possible, from installation to getting into the game. We've especially taken into consideration the accounts we have here at Battlelog.co for BF2 and want to ensure that no new accounts will need to be created upon the launch of 2142. We've also been working on our launcher in the background recently, making good strides towards turning it into our universal "Revive Launcher" that will allow you to install and play both BF2 and 2142, all under one single account! This presents us with a few challenges that we've already thought out and are ready to take on and is only a matter of time. At this point in time we are projecting a goal of early September for our official release of our own 2142 revive system - written completely in house by our own developers. Along with this, we are hoping to reinstate the ability to acquire BF2 ranked servers, as well as provide BF2142 servers to those of you who we know are just itching to run your own 2142 server again!

    Stay tuned for more news as we get closer to release. We'll be sure to update you once we have some more information on a solid release date as well as our progress as we get closer to launch, but for now head over to our forums where we're reopened the Battlefield 2142 section for discussion!

    The problem with dethklok is that it's an american server. I really liked their map rotation and static titans but the high ping was unbearable and took away the fun from the game. There was also a Novgames server based in Russia, but it had silly mods and the ping wasn't much better.
    That was my experience a few years back, maybe new servers popped up since.

    With that new project we can hope for more European servers and a bigger player base.

    I was about to post the link, thanks Karl. The installation process is quite simple to follow, but just in case :



    There is only one EU server so far. I've played one round, 64 players on a Shuhia Taiba titan map. It works really well and feels good to be back. I wasn't so rusty, just need to rearrange my keys and wait for the muscle memory to kick back in

    We should start putting down our player names so we can send friend requests. Mine is Brancaleone.

    One more thing, you don't need to own the game to download it. It is free to play.

    If you've started playing BF with BC2 or after, the movement and firing might feel clumsy at first but once you get used to it hopefully you'll see how good (and by good I mean vastly superior) the gameplay actually is.
