Some possible good news for Battlefield 2 players languishing in a world of no updates for the last many months with a forum post
from a DICE employee mentioning that a beta patch might be available "before Christmas".
This will hopefully correct some of the long-standing issues with the game, including a series of annoying exploits and bugs. There's no official word on what we can expect in the patch but hopefully there'll be a few nice surprises in there as well, so stay tuned for more.

It's still fairly popular in the context of PC-based first-person shooters (...that aren't Half-Life/Half-Life 2 based, anyway), but it's a far cry from its glory days.

However, when I do get a chopper to fly, and successfully deliver 5 dudes to a point under fire and make it back to the spawn point for the next load and do it again, it is a particularly satisfying experience. Or skimming along the ground with a transport chopper to clear an area of dudes... Also, watching people duck into buildings to hide and flying so low that the gunner can stick the gun through the window and waste everyone is particularly satisfying as well.
It was the rarity of those moments that stopped me playing.
