After it shutdown, in order to help people find a community solution to reconnecting with Battlefield 2, I made a reddit thread not too long ago with fixes for not only EA Games but for also any other game affected by the shutdown that I could find.

You can find the extensive list here

If you just want the Battlefield 2 fix, the site is: revivebf2

Battlefield 2 must live on with its great mods like Project Reality and Forgotten Hope.

If you have any other fixes, please tell me.

It looks like Battlefield 1942 is now also down. This is an end of a era :(

A fix can be found in the above reddit post though. It looks like a lot of people have transitioned fortunately.

@Realmjumper: Yep, that is the whole point of this thread :P. I'm glad our communities are stepping up and saving our games.

with 1942 being free on origin and where many of the players moved to, it's probably less of an issue

@wis3boi: EA has sadly completely abandoned Battlefield 1942 - 2142. Those games for free or for sale are not on origin anymore unless you already have registered them on your individual account.

Meaning that if you were to install these games from retail or from origin in their vanilla form, you can't play them online as the Master Server is shutdown and which is why these fixes are necessary.
