The Battle Grounds 2 and Battle Grounds 3(BG3) are Half-Life 2 multiplayer modifications based on the revolutionary war. The British Army and its Native American tribal allies engage in battle against the United States Continental Army and militia forces. 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.

We stand with you, soldiers! We fought well at the start of this battle, and we as commanders have taken your feedback to heart by rolling out two hotfixes since release! The first hotfix, made live yesterday, fixed a persistent lag issue that effected all servers. If you played within the first 3 hours of release (before 6pm EST/10pm GMT), know that the jitter has been fixed and that melee is now much more fluid. This hotfix has been put on all of the official servers, but community servers may still need to update! The second hotfix, made live today, adds a "Mute Players" button to the in-game main menu, allowing each player to locally mute other players. This if useful for muting players who are loud or play music.

We commanders in the development team are all volunteers with full time jobs, and yet we will be looking to fix even more issues over the next few days. It is our honor to serve with you.

Battlegrounds III has an official discord but I don't know of any for 2.
See link here for official Discord. Discordapp.com

Otherwise if you are interested in this or other Gold Source (GoldSrc, HL1, Half Life 1) mods or Source (Half Life 2, HL2) mods then feel free to join a new Discord that i've started for matchmaking. I'm trying to centralize and unite the multiplayer mod communities for all of the various multiplayer mods out there and we have a mod of the week we play every Friday and Saturday. Feel free to check us out.

Discord.gg

Let me know if you have any questions.

Last I played was back in July of this year and there were only 3 servers up and running with nobody in them. Joined one of them and after awhile some dude joined and we chatted about how awesome this mod is or was..but that was pretty much it, figured he was the admin of the server or something too.
