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.

The one (huge) problem about multiplayer modifications is that they require a pretty big fan base to achieve their full potential, and they usually die quickly. Especially for an old game like half-life 2. Is it possible that you can make it bot compatible? That would surely extend the life of your mod.

this mod had made a great full potential...the sad thing is the it really came to die not to long ago...this mod used to get 32 on 32 people line battles but that got old and all but thats all people ask for...and well, the chances of the old days coming back are very slim.

some of the maps (if not all) actually kind of do work with bots. Just enable the cheats [sv_cheats 1] then use the [bot_add] command till you got the amount you want

I agree. Maybe if the melee combat was revamped, more people would be more willing to play. The guns have excellent feel but melee was the only frustrating and clunky aspect of the mod.

This mod deserves more players then it has atm! I re-download and play from time to time, and it would be nice to see the huge realism battles it used to have again.

How about a kickstarter or similar to get this on greenlight? I think that would help this mod get a bigger community!

It's amazing to see such a great mod still being cared for after all these years.

Older modders usually forget about their mods and just leave them to die.

Definitely re-downloading.

Not sure if the funds are there at this time Combine. Perhaps in time, when the game is most popular. ^^

There's usually a server with people on it, sometimes none show up though. Try again some other time.
