Iâ(TM)d still play BF2 if there were any servers left for Karkand Infantry that didnâ(TM)t suck. For pure fun to play 64 man infantry only Kirkland was about the pinnacle of PvP, way better than any newer COD or BFn.
Game companies are spending way too much money on graphics and gimmicks and nothing at all on good PvP.
Good PvP requires evenly matched teams and gear in a space big enough for variety and small enough so the teams are compelled to be in contact.
You wanna see an example of a horrible PvP game, try PlanetSide 3. The teams were/are never even, you spend most of your time running around trying to find the other team, when you find them either they are massively outnumbered or you are outnumbered.
Then there are the microtransactions so someone foolish enough to blow the money can advance with no skill whatsoever.
Most COD Iâ(TM)ve played you circle endlessly in a fur ball killing and being killed, there is never any discernible point or strategy.
Seriously if you want a great game that people will want to play forever look at CS and BF2. The graphics kinda suck, BF2 is certainly buggy, but they are still pure fun to play.
