Going by what DICE has done in the past, they'll continue to support the game for as long as possible. Of course, the frequency of patches would go down drastically with the release of Battlefield 3.

Because when they patch a certain file inside one of those bigger files thanks to the incredibly inefficient way they designed their game they have to replace the entire file. So the change could be to a file that is 2kb, but if that 2kb file is stored inside of a larger archive they have to replace the entire thing. It's stupid and annoying. Hopefully they fixed this with BF3.

So I played a few games today and I noticed that all the things that were annoying in the game a year ago when I last played are still annoying today. :laugh:

The worst update they did was how they handicapped the M95. When Bad Company 2 was first released, if you had that sniper rifle and it hit someone, they would be dead, simple But now the only time you can kill someone with a M95 is with a headshot or if the player you shot at was already injured. It definitely has a different feel to it that what it used to be like.

No, it's just because they included all the old patches in there.

I don't think that's the case. Always have been 2 hits to the body or one headshot (the way it should be), unless you play on hardcore. Then with magnum ammo it's OHK to body at any range which is bull****.

I have no issues getting kills with the M95, after the handicapping. It means that the gun handles a bit differently, granted, but I don't consider that a bad thing. The M95 was almost too easy to use in the past, so I welcomed the additional challenge. At present using Magnum Ammo with it gives it an overall damage of 99/100, meaning that a chest shot won't always kill but it will leave the enemy in a position where a kill is virtually guaranteed. If they've already been injured then it's virtually a guaranteed kill. With the M95's bullet drop being at an absolute minimum though, getting headshots isn't really difficult. I like the M95, but I have moved back the GOL, the SV-98, and the M24, in order to keep my play-style varied.

@Ferson

Every gun has exactly the same amount of bullet drop...

Also, what 99/100 damage? Damage output depends highly on the range. M95 has almost double OHK range of other bolt actions but it is still limited to 18m. And after 36m or so it deals 55 damage without magnum ammo. http://denkirson.xanga.com/722757523/bad-company-2/

That's not how they explained their patch process a long time ago. I'm not saying you're wrong, it's just around the time the game came out they explained it to us differently.

Wait, they do?! I thought they were all slightly different. :o

As for the 99/100, I thought it was something like 99% damage the M95 caused? Well, I stand corrected!

Nope, all guns have the same exact bullet drop. Doesn't matter if it be is a pistol or the m95. It would be nice if this is something they change in BF3, I haven't heard anything about that.

      Universal Media Server is a DLNA-compliant UPnP Media Server. UMS was started by SubJunk, an official developer of PMS, in order to ensure greater stability and file-compatibility. The program streams or transcodes many different media formats with little or no configuration. It is powered by MEncoder, FFmpeg, tsMuxeR, AviSynth, MediaInfo and more, which combine to offer support for a wide range of media formats. Because it is written in Java, Universal Media Server supports all major operating systems, with versions for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.

      Canalys: Global PC market saw 25% YoY growth in 4Q20
      by Paul Hill



      The analyst firm Canalys has reported that the global PC market saw 25% year-over-year growth in the fourth quarter of 2020. The firm classifies the PC market as desktops, notebooks (including Chromebooks) and workstations but excludes tablets which are sometimes used by some in place of a full-blown PC. Total PC shipments in 2020 grew by 11% reaching 297 million units.

      The full-year growth in the PC market is the highest that’s been seen since 2020 and the number of units shipped is the highest seen since 2014. The growth in 2020 was driven by laptops and mobile workstations; they saw a growth rate of 44% compared to 2019. Desktops, on the other hand, were less successful with shipments falling 20% compared to 2019; there were 61.9 million shipments in this segment of the market in 2020.

      In the fourth quarter, the biggest PC vendor was Lenovo which shipped 23.1 million units, in second place was HP which shipped 19.1 million units. Dell came in third place shipping more than 15 million units for the first time ever, Apple was in fourth place shipping 7.1 million units and Acer came fifth with 6.1 million units shipped. Other companies shipped a combined 18.9 million units in the fourth quarter.

      According to Canalys Research Director Rushabh Doshi, PCs have been at the centre of the digital transformation that the world has gone through in the past year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Doshi said that going forward it’s going to be “extremely difficult” to write off PCs and that it’s likely that they’re here to stay.
