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.

Battle For the Colonies has been reborn! For those of you who don't remember, Battle For The Colonies is an organized play project where individuals play as soldiers in the American or British Army. A central campaign map guides the action overall, similar to Risk or Empire Total War. Each side has a commander-in-chief, who decides where to attack and defend. Then the battles are played out in BG 2 2.0. Players are allowed to come and go each week, so no one needs to commit to the entire campaign. You can come for any battle, or all of them and play as many times as you want. Matches are played on a points basis, with capturing ground being the important part, not individual melee or damage.

Each Saturday at 12 pm (noon) Eastern US Time, the battles begin to determine the fate of the colonies. The following link has more information, and you can register to join either side in advance. The Heroic Elite Server will be hosting the battles.

Tiedup14 of the Heroic Elite will be administering the campaign and has made this general announcement as well:

"Battle for the Colonies is a campaign style tournament. Players join either the British or American side and battle it out over a period many weeks. There is a map of the 13 colonies, and each colony has a different point value. Battle for the territory (colony) would be a match on a server."

Battle For the Colonies

The project needs players to get off the ground, with one more possible officer spot available on each side. You can also learn more by visiting the BGMod forum using a link on the right side of this BGmod.com webpage.

Nathan is correct, 12 PM EST => 12:00 in the 24-hour clock system. That means in Germany and the rest of the CET time zone, it was 18:00. Now BFTC moved to 1 PM EST or 19:00 for central europeans. (6 hour difference from EST to CET)
