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.

No, it's been taken out for some reason (patch 2 2.3).... However, on servers like the 29th, 33rd and 12th there will usually be admins so they will most likely mute or kick/ban someone if they mic spam or troll.

Hi, I had the same problem with 3 different source mods at the same time, I also didn't have a clue what the problem was but I got fed up and reinstalled Half Life 2 and suddenly I could play all 3 source mods, Maybe if you reinstall DOD:S that would work.

You, sir, have earned a downvote. Yes, Napoleonic Wars is good ole fun, as is North and South, AND the Deluge, but BG2 has never tried to be those mods, it's always been what it is, and has done it well. It saw rough times when Mount and Musket came out, sure, but this community has endured ten damn years and we can go on for more. Take your negativity to the FSE boards and leave us alone.

BG2 isn't trying to be a massive multiplayer linebattle simulator. BG2 is more focused on close-quarters combat and individual teamwork.
