The Battle Grounds 2(BG2) is a Half-Life 2 multiplayer modification based on the revolutionary war. It is the sequel to the popular HL1 mod with even more features and possibilities. The British Army and its Native American tribal allies engage in battle against the United States Continental Army and local militia forces. Interactivity is a very important factor in this mod and team play is as important as ever before. Take aim and fire muskets, prepare bayonets and take control of the battlefield to succeed in your campaign for final victory. Combat will vary from long-range rifle marksmanship to brutal close quarters hand-to-hand melee fighting. You will need a mix of first person combat skills and quick-thinking strategy to survive. So prepare yourself to do battle for your side and to meet the enemy head-on. Only one side can be victorious.

You guys should make a new trailer ! With the new graphics would be far greater.And also remake the models, because there are some stuff on the models that isnt really good, like the back of the coat that generally keeps itself "flying" is pasted with the leg.

How come I'm not seeing any servers? Are they dead? Just a suggestion but If the devs somehow were able to add bots that would be totally epic! No need to go searching all over the internet to find people to play with! But that most likely won't happen due to the coding and work involved. :(

There is a small but dedicated player base still. Servers are usually populated in the evening (European time).

There are some very basic bots are in the game, you need a few console commands to get them after you load up a map on a local server:
sv_cheats 1
bot_add 5 (adds 5 bots)

Don't expect much as the usually end up bumping into the enemy while reloading.

On the server browse did you check that there aren't any filters that may stop them from showing up? There are 5 servers online at the moment, none of them have players though.

I had the show map list checked for some reason it was blocking any servers from showing... I can see the servers now! Thanks!
