  • Awards not given?

    Hi, I just got the game itself. I was playing on Wake Island and was awarded a Purple Heart. Why has it not appeared in my awards?

    Also, I have played on every Middle Eastern and Chinese Theater map for at least one round, why have I not yet received the theater ribbons?

    • I assume you've patched to version 1.41?
    • Were you playing on a ranked server?
    • Stats can take a while to update, how long was it since you were playing?

    Oh and the service ribbons are bugged anyway, they don't show up for some people...

      The stat system is taking a little longer the past day to update, so just be patient.

      Also, those Mid-East and Far-East theater ribbons are a bit buggy. Some don't show up until you've hit 25 total hrs of play. Just keep playing and they'll eventually show up in your BFHQ.

          This used to happen often in the early bf2 days, but it just happened to me recently: sometimes you will get an award in-game but you don't receive it, it has to be earned again. Total frustration, especially when it's an Expert medal. :hmm:

            Usually joining another server and getting a few points in it solves it.

            Ps. My SF ribbons don't show up at all. Only my helo one is showing up and I got x2 service and the armour/crew specialist ribbons that arn't showing for a total of 4. Prolly has something to do with the stat server failing months ago as it took 2-3 months until my rep points started working again at which point I lost all gained durng the "black out"

              LOL this game is getting more and more buggy. None of the booster pack content will work, even though I have the Battlefield 2 Complete Collection installed.

              Another thing, what is a high points server? And what is so wrong with them and Knife servers?

                lol vincint mate, you must first install the original bf2 game, then install all booster/expansion packs, then the patch (1.41). A high points server is a server with the ticket ratio to the max enabling peeps to get more points, a Knife server or otherwise known as a KP (knife & Pistol) are servers whos rules are against EA's ROE (rules of engagement). The idea of the KP servers is to get max points to rank up quicker, its lame, dont do it! heres links you will find useful;

                aswell as getting the game working itself, try watching others play to get the hang of it, here are some of my own-

                *EDIT*
                Make sure you have your server filterd so that only ranked servers show up, as well as populated and 'same version' checked, otherwise you will get thousands of useless servers.

                  It's not like you have to try really hard to get it again. Just get your 5 kills at the beginning and then try to get killed 20 times. Fighting the urge not to kill again may be the hardest part, becasue for every additional kill, you must die 4 more times, and the round may be over before you get all of your death.
