Battlefield: Bad Company 2
Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Down For Maintenance Today

DICE is currently rebuilding its statistics database for Battlefield: Bad Company 2, meaning that the game is having downtime which started at 7:00 GMT today and will continue until 14:00 GMT.

Apparently, this is the second phase of the stats database rebuild, which will be followed by performance measurements. DICE warns of the possibility of a few stats issues as players all go back online after the downtime, but confirm that the effect "will diminish over the following 2 hours."

Here are the downtimes - which are almost over now - by region and time zone:

  • 23:00 PM PST Monday – 06:00 AM PST  
  • 07:00 AM GMT Tuesday – 14:00 GMT AM 
  • 08:00 AM CET Tuesday – 15:00 PM CET 

For more information on the BFBC2 stats issue, check out this thread posted by DICE's Mikael Kalms on the EA UK Forums.

Agree with #3, have had that happen way to many times.

At least I am at school the entire time they are doing maintenance.

Well this doesn't affect me since I'm booked with assignments this week. On the positive side when I'm done my assignments I'll be rewarded with improved game play of an already awesome game :)

@9, yeah i would like to think so... but with battlefield 3 coming out, I think they're done with BC2. Which is expected considering how much content they have already put out

I'll be surprised if they really fixed this shit. The other week they were supposed to do some "maintenance" and nothing was done..This is what EA is all about; making games that have bugs and all kinds of problems and fixing them months later!

Maybe they'll fix the glitch that gives me a "Your team lost..." screen when we really won and vice-versa?

Maybe it's just me but he's saying that the downtimes are almost over in one spot but if you look at when they're scheduled it's not for a few more hours. Am I missing something? I can't get to the site from work so any help, greatly appreciated.

@9 probably not considering if you go to the store there are no more to be announced slots.

@13 Every publisher seems to have that problem, not just EA. Some developers/publishers don't even bother fixing them unless you bug the hell out of them(Atari/Terminal Reality). Also just because you don't notice anything the maintenance did, doesn't mean it didn't do anything.

The disappearing stats never bothered me, but I'm glad they are fixing it.

They certainly did something. Early this morning it kicked us all off. Then later we could get back in, but with everything reset. OTOH it was a blast to play with no specializations and everyone at level 1, with the points being lost after each match so no ranking up (well, I didn't see anyone get enough points to rank in one match). Then it kicked us off again.

Hopefully this will fix having all your selections reset when going between the main game and the vietnam expansion and back.

Everything seemed fine when I went on that evening. Was being stupid earlier until I downloaded the latest map update.
