A quiet night tonight. Exhausted after a hectic day so I fired up Bad Company 2 on the Xbox and played an hour or so of the single player game. It’s like a walk in the park after the multiplayer online game. Everyone should play through it at least once. I discovered that the main gun on heavy tanks can zoom in tonight, and played the UAV bit of the game too. Hellfire missiles are nice!

I found a bug – one of the gun emplacements you must destroy from the UAV remained when the building it was on mysteriously collapsed. I flew the UAV down low and there it was just hovering in the air! I had to kill the UAV and restart this short mission to complete it.

Oh, check out these Bad Company 2 charts. While you’re at it, subscribe to the Bad Company 2 section on reddit.com. Lots of stuff posted there every day and loads of good bits too. If Modern Warfare 2 still floats your boat, there’s a section on that too!

Picked this up from that charts thread. I always wondered how they calculate the “skill level” in Bad Company 2. Well, it’s very simple:

Skill level is an ELO tracking of your K/D. Nothing more.

What is ELO? According to Wikipedia:

The Elo rating system is a method for calculating the relative skill levels of players in two-player games such as chess and Go.

So your skill level probably goes up if you kill higher ranked players, or players with a higher skill level.
