[quote="lucid":14mbbebb] I liked the unlock system. It's fun. Even when it was annoying. And you don't grind to unlock. You just play the game like normal. The only difference is, you might have to play medic longer than you wanted to. [/quote:14mbbebb]
I like how it encourages you to learn a weapon by only allowing you to use a certain thing. However, it can be frustrating at times when you just want to use something else. Especially when I made a new character (called "STOP CAMPING"), I had to spend forever unlocking everything again.
the spawn area thing is irrelevant. The whole game is squad based, so you and your squad coordinate by spawning off of eachother or off of captured points if you all die[/quote:14mbbebb]
The squad system is okay, however when you end up with a team of campers (usually happens in Arica Harbour, my favourite map) you'll basically be stuck near spawn the whole match. While everyone just has the guns focused at spawn waiting for someone to pop-out.
[quote:14mbbebb]Being able to specify filters to help you choose between hundreds of fast servers, all with gamers in them. Servers that can be customized. It's how it's supposed to be. if your team sucks, be the one that makes it better. if it still sucks, change servers. If you want to play similarly skilled players, try different servers until you find a good skill mix, and favorite it. I don't need my pc telling me who I should play against. When I play with or against vets I learn from them, and sometimes its fun to kills noobs over and over.[/quote:14mbbebb]
It probably works better in America, but theres usually only 1 or 0 servers playing Arica Harbour in Australia with settings I like (I only play small maps, cause shotgun is the most fun weapon) so theres really very little choice. And I usually end up with an absurd amount of kills, and have to change team multiple times during the game so that the game is balanaced (if 1 team starts dominating in conquest, the other team will get stuck at spawn point). But killing people who suck all the time, or getting stuck against opponents who camp on the boundries sniping at you is just tedious and boring after a while.
If you like sniping and vehicle combat though, BC2 is amazing. There is plenty of places to hide and take cover, and lots of open spaces and long distances between things - perfect for sniping.
