Friday Night Fights: RIP, Bad Company 2

This is it. The last Friday night before Battlefield 3 replaces the go-to FNF game of many a Dtoider, myself included.

Am I sad? A little. After all, I’ve spent more Fridays playing Battlefield: Bad Company 2 than probably any other game since I started hosting FNF, and every one of them has been an absolute delight. I’ve killed more enemies, revived more teammates and captured more M-COM stations than I can even count, but every one of those kills, revives and captures holds a place in my heart, and always will.

So goodbye, old friend. You’ve been good to me.

But enough of this crybaby crap! If the throbbing in my pants chest pants is any indication, my excitement level for the next iteration in the BF series will more than make up for the pang of loss caused by the death of this friend, and I, for one, can’t wait to get my hands on it next Tuesday!

But until then, let’s pay our respects the only way we know how!

New to FNF? Read this! Each week, a bunch of us Dtoiders get together to play videogames online! It’s a 100% community-run event, so feel free to join in or even host something yourself!

The planning for FNF starts in the forums, where community members volunteer to host matches and post their pertinent details (game, time, Gamertag, etc.). Then, every Friday, reminder posts go up in the community blogs followed by a recap post here on the front page for last-minute planning.

To join in, simply send a friend request to the match host! (Don’t forget to say you’re from Dtoid!) If you’d rather host something yourself, sound off in the comments section below!

We hope to see you online!
