BF2 DEMO Ladder

Well It would appear that Gayarena has setup a BF2 Demo Ladder, with
149 teams registered and 62 already with enough players, personally I think its a tad bit :gay: seeing like the retail is due on the 22nd, so I think this is an opportune time to guage some interest.

So,
1) Who Is intestesed in competetive play
2) Are you clanned up?
3) Who is interested in joining a clan
4) Team Sizes ? ( I don't think 12v12 would do the game justice)
I think that covers everything.

I'm interested in competitive play & joining a clan. Team sizes I'm unsure of, would have to wait and see the size of the other maps in the retail version.

I think you will find the GA ladder is not a demo ladder, its simply an early opening of the retail ladder, most likely to avoid multiple ladders, early bird etc.

From looking at the rules, the ladder will be 12v12.

so how much have you contributed in cash towards bittah's buying 10 servers to host that ladder? sexual favors don't count unless you get paid in RAM.

I don't think even node or OGN, who will have trusted EA servers, have enough gear and support available to organise a 60+ teams ladder.

Actually for any decent size ladder, ga can't be beaten. Having a server booked and on time for you without having to do anything other than agree on a date is the best thing since sliced bread.

our resident plasma has already done this on t2/tv/hl2 etc .. until he was SNAFFLED by GA :stan:

That said, GA by far have the best resources as far as servers and monetary support (prizes etc) go. I dont think anyone denies this unless theyre delusional

There needs to be two ladders. IMO for this game, 12v12 is just too few for a 32 player map.

Needs to be an 8v8 - if any of you have played the 16 player variant of Gulf of oman with 8v8, it's extreemly fucking cool. It's total squad warfare, and probably my favoured version of the map atm. The vehicles and everything in the full size is awesome as well, but those smaller fights just totally rock. I cant wait to have an 8v8 with 16 people i know, and 16 talented players, it'll fucking kickass. We're looking at getting an AE server up ASAP for this.

And 16 v 16.

With 12 v 12, you're so limited as far as what roles you could field, moreso when you have a commander(who can spend MOST of his time in the commander view), and pilots.

Imagine:

1 - commander
1 - chopper pilot
1 - chopper gunner
1 - regular pilot(for AA duties against enemy chopper/planes and bombing)

That leaves 8 on the ground, divide that down further:

1 - tank
1 - tank
1 - APC

And that's only like 5 infantry ffs - not even using all the vehicles, as another one of them could be put in another APC.

I dont know, just getting a little stretched.

16v16 would be a lot better. Im going to go spam the GA boards with this discussion actually!

8 v 8 on the 16 player map is fine though. Feels totally populated, and guys if you havent tried it yet, FFS do.

16 player map + Battle recorder = FTW++

If you go back and read again, it's called the older gamers, as in not your 15 yo CS l337 tard :lol:
We have people from 25 to a few in their 60s, so it's a bit of everything.

Regarding team sizes:
There is a thread on GA about team sizes, and a surprising large amount of ppl favor 16v16.

vT is playing both until trives totally dies - or will just play both forever if she refuses to go into the night.
