Can still play online

To those who might be about to toss your old BF titles, and miss those old days waging virtual war, fret not. Despite Gamespy's shutdown one can still play across the net. Granted Singleplayer, Co-operative, and even Multiplayer across LAN was always still available (inroom LAN gaming is the best), but many think with the death of Gamespy games like BF1942, BFV, BF2 and BF2142 cannot be used online. In truth multiple options exist for players, some super easy to use. The other week I installed one option, GameRanger, to setup some Co-op play over the net in BFV with my brother. Install and play, easy as that. Here's the list for anyone looking to find games with strangers, or have the option to hook up with friends via the web. http://www.gameranger.com/ http://battlelog.co/ https://www.bf2hub.com/home/ For BF2142 Battlefield2142.co bl2142.co stg2142.com is a UK based alternative. Personally I feel Gameranger is a good all around alternative as it hosts all four games. Especially handy for setting up gaming parties over the internet with other people who own any of these games.

    You know you're old when you think that "BF" means Battlefront (Star Wars).

    Depends on what community you're from I suppose. Star Wars Battlefront fans seemed to refer to their game as BF, while I've seen most others abbreviate it as SWBF.

    I've always typed it as SWBF. To be honest, there would be no "Battlefront" without the "Star Wars." ;)
