Don t you think BF 2142 could be made free of charge as BF 1942 ?!
Soon will be left without any players.
The graphics is anyway better than BF 1942.

C'mon EA !

I think they can't make it free, because they pay for GameSpy service.

Yes ,in this BF1942 case yes.It somehow affects the experience ,at least for me

BF 2 is ok though in this aspect.and even BF 2142 .
There is no gamespy arcade involved.
Reset the password for BF2 and it had no relation to the BF 2142 account ,in fact the BF 2142 in my case seems to be using a different password all together with not relation to the Origin account as well :) I was lucky to find my pass.Same mail used of course for all of them.
I think EA mantains the log ins and not gamespy.

Anyway with no FREENESS the game will die.
BF 1942 is still played ,but this one may die fast soon and it s pity.
Some kids should have the chance to see it and play it as they do with BF 1942.

EA should have made possible that the WW2 ,the futuristic BF and the actual so called modern BF to get along.Instead they went for the COD style ,same game every 2 years ,maybe often if possible.
Not all players enjoy what we have now some like the old WW2 games ,some the futuristic ones.Some graphic refresh for the rigs we are using is justified.

great idea i just posed this idea in another post aswell. i would be happy to buy if i knew it still had servers and an online comminuty. but after buying crysy 2 one of my faves only to find about 40 people online i'm troy o'leary about buying games like this agian. even a 14.99. drop it to $5 or free that latter would help way more.

No. Just no. This is not a good idea at all, unless you want the game to turn into a noobfest like it did with Battlefield 1942. By making the game free for everyone, everyone can play it. That includes little kids and people who have no idea what the hell they're doing. Battlefield 1942 was a great game, but these days I see way too many people wrecking their plane, driving the battleships too close to land, teamkilling, etc.. I can understand that some people think it was good idea to make Battlefield 1942 free due to the lack of players. But keep in mind that most players who stayed in Battlefield 1942 were not new to the game. They knew what they were doing. They knew how to play the game. If EA makes Battlefield 2142 free for everyone, then the exact same thing will happen in that game. Ask yourself: Would you rather have hundreds of full servers where most of the people are noobs or 5 servers with pro players who have been playing Battlefield 2142 since it was released?

I'd rather have a broader skill spectrum. I never got the chance to play 2142 (only played BF2 because my brother bought it but never touched it, so I took it). Maybe a final patch to put rank requirements for servers? I'd much rather learn the game against other noobs of similar skill than being slaughtered by people with years of experience.

I do understand your view (I feel the same with BF3 and some of the idiots I need to rescue), but some would like to play but the price is a bit high for such an old game.

13 USD is a high price? It's at the same price as Battlefield 2 Complete Collection.

I bought this game today, hopefully I will be able to play after I download the 2gb update :P.

+1 OP, please make this game free, so we can have people playing again.

They don t care man.
Now it s the moment to make it free ,before all servers go offline ,otherwise ...
Instead of this we got the oldie free ,a game that was good at it s times but it s really outdated in graphics and many more areas.
They think that they can stil sell it and indeed it s still in retail ,but who buys it except few fans like we are?! :)
Only making it free will increase the player counts in a short amount of time and reborn it.
