Bad Company 2 Multiplayer Not Working - Solution in some cases.

Many of you have noticed that the Multiplayer of Bad Company 2 is broken since the game is free with Games with Gold. The problem is that the multiplayer updates are delisted from the marketplace. Not that you need the VIP package as EA twitter said.

To play Vietnam you need the Vietnam Key (a few Mb's, still on the marketplace) and the Vietnam Title Update (1,64GB, delisted). I can play Vietnam on every map and can see many full servers.

To play to normal multiplayer you need Title Update #3 (EDIT: Apparently this is the Vietnam update). I did not have that update in my download history so i tried it with Update #2 and Update #1. Multiplayer worked fine although I could only acces the orginal maps. I could not play on VIP Maps. All the updates are delisted.

Anyway, if you never downloaded those updates, you can copy them from someone else to play the game online.

Questions? Can you guys acces the VIP maps when you have Title Update 3 installed.

I also have Bad Company 2 LE Update #6 (16mb's) on my hdd. Don't know what that is?

For me, "Battlefield Bad Company 2 Update #3" and the Vietnam Update seem to be the same thing. I downloaded the Vietnam Update from my history the other night to finally be able to get on, and it's listed as Update #3 under storage.

Yeah screw this game. Next time give us a full game that actually works and not a game that makes you jump through a bunch of hoops just to get half the game to work. Not gonna bother with this game anymore. Ill just play Destiny

I'm currently downloading Multiplayer Updates 1 & 2 and the Vietnam Multiplayer Update/Update 3. I'll post back with my results later.


Edit: Yupp, with those 3 updates I got into a match on my first try, hassle free.

Ah Vietnam update is update #3. Strange that I still cannot acces the VIP maps. Apparently this is also the case on the PS3 since early october. Dice screwed up again.

Is anyone able to play on the VIP (Free map pack maps)?

After launching multiplayer mode the game asks now to install BFBC2 Vietnam Multiplayer Update. It seems to be fixed this way.

Not sure if it will get me online but from the games menu if you go to store it tells you there is an update to download (1.64Gb - BFBC2 Vietnam Multiplayr Update)

It is like that after EA has fixed something on the servers. It didn't give you any updates before.

How fucking annoying. I haven't been able to play online yet, since this came out free.

I could connect to servers before, but couldn't find games.

Then I updated something and now I can't even connect to the server.

Talking

I went to the storage/HHD and deleted any updates I've had when I owned the game awhile back. I was prompted to update as I started the game.

I'm downloading the Vietnam maps now. Cant wait to check it out.

Yup, had to install the Vietnam update that it prompted after the VIP notice. Very annoying and cost my friend a night of gaming.

I dont think you need update 2, I downloaded the game and only updated with update 3. Update 3 includes update 2 I think..

As from my personal experience with problems to login to EA BF:BC2 servers the best solution I can provide and which works for me fine is to reboot the router or reset the internet connection. I know it sounds absurdly simple but it works. I have to add I started the game when it was given free as part of the Games with Gold.

I have the VIP pack, and all updates, but can't seem to connect to EA servers. Unfortunately, I cannot reset my router as I am on a campus network. Anyone have any suggestions, as it didnt use to be like this...
