Ok, so you can't play BFBC2, as it tells you that it "Failed to Login Soldier".

The word is that EA had a loss of old data with a HDD failure. They are working on fixing it (supposedly). Yes, you can still play.

You need to create a new soldier. The name of this soldier will need to have LOWER CASE letters. You will start off at rank 1.

Hopefully this will be fixed in a few days.

In the meantime...you will notice that in less than 2 days of this issue being around and your old soldier and rank not being available, there are already high ranked soldiers. Amazingly, there are rank 50 players, in less than 2 days of the servers being down. Yet these same high rank players suck in their gameplay. This is because they are cheaters.

If you run into a high rank player right now, know that they are a cheat, and do a !voteban or report them!

Some kids are just dumb as rocks and don't realize that their lack of skill with high rank is obvious.

Most of the servers active are American so no BFBC2 for me.

Problem is many Veterans like myself have used all 5 slots and because the characters no-longer exist they can't be deleted to restart a level 1 with a lower case name...

DICE fails again...

Ummm... NO. Notice how the lvl 50s and EVERY OTHER player use only lowercase letters in their soldier name? ANY soldier with all lowercase is not botched due to this "issue". No need to report folks - lol.

however, there are hackers. I saw one guy killing everyone on the server with one shot from the M9.guy accelerated from LvL0 to LvL6 in one game rush.

Yeah dude, whatever. Most of them are haxing cheating fools. I even had a few of them saying they did to get ranked back up and provided links to it in game. Go peddle your fairy tales elsewhere!

Getting fed up with "can't log in soldier".... the only best battlefield game ever. No way will I buy BF4 untill it reaches a price of $10 and I read reviews, considering BF3 was a waste of money....no destructive buildings, can't explore maps on your own, pathetic color (visuals) etc...FIX BFBC2 EA, want to play. The old saying "if it aint broke don't fix it" referring to make more games like BFBC2.

And your fix was a no go....FAIL

"login with a new account - type new name in all simple letters"
Not good enough.

It's been three days.

All the BFBC2 accounts were lost, weren't they.

It's been three days.

It's not coming back is it.

Not everyone can create a new account.

Awesome.

The thing that bothers me the most is my inability to find any thing EA is saying about this problem. I see second hand reports of HDD failure, reports of an older server being compromised (hacked), but nothing factual or Informative from EA. Why? If I cant have one of my 5 old characters then wipe them and I will make another. Or Re-assign or clear my key code so I can Re-install and clear characters that way. Put out a COMPARABLE game and I will buy AND PLAY THAT. I bought BF3 after all. (too bad I don't like it.).

The weird thing is that there are people on the servers that I've been playing on that are using their old accounts, but the soldier names are all in lower case and numbers. It seems that its just related to upper case characters and symbols, although it could be random too I guess.

No need to make new account, just when it asks you login, do it normal, but when it ask which soldier to use, create a new one with all lower case letters.
like bobsmith or whatever you want, i didn't use any spaces or numbers, and it worked for me.

EA just doesn't seem to care about BFBC2. It was up and running but they had got to ruin it.
