BF2 nowhere to get.
« on: 14-03-2015, 09:03:36 »
Hello!

Managed to find a potentional FH2 player, who, as Wulfburk can also confirm, cannot get a copy of BF2 anywhere. 'Twas taken down from Steam, Origin etc. What he could only find was an overpriced copy on G2A. Halp?

Battlefield 2: Complete Collection is around 7 pounds (+ free shipping) at Play.com

Amazon, or a used copy (from a trusted source, of course). Does the game even still check for CD-key in use after the Gamespy shutdown (something tells me it doesn't actually)?

Thanks for swift replies, I will delegate them and surely one will be possible.

I do not really think it does anymore.

It really seems like it doesn't but mods have their own solutions for discouraging piracy, for example explained here for PR:

http://www.realitymod.com/forum/f27-pr-bf2-support/129471-valid-cd-key-needed-anymore.html

So, if he wants to play it (semi)safe he should get an original copy. I say semi, because there's always a chance (albeit small) that a random key generator generated an original key.
