    New BFBC2 PC patch announced for Wednesday June 30th

    This just in from the BF Blog:

    We are happy to announce the release of the new patch on June 30th.



    All game servers will need to be taken down for updates. The maintenance period starts on Wednesday Jun 30th at 07:00AM (GMT+2). Most of them should be back up by 11:00AM (GMT+2).

    During this time window, we will also release the new game client. Check back after 11:00AM (GMT+2), and try out the new game client!

    Minor issue. There are much more significant fixes in this patch for us to celebrate.

    I have found the patch to have degraded the play. Now heli's are too strong and tanks are not strong enough.

    I put 4 shells directly into a heli at point blank range and it kept on going.
    I even put a shell into the nose of a heli (front on, point blank) at it kept going.

    I bet that the US Army would like heli's as good as that!

    Cheers
