It should let you? And can you only play ranked online? Because I am on trial right now and it is not letting me do the custom online or unranked where you can use mods or whatnot I hit search and it says instantly no games found.
Battlefield For Life, favorite series since I first started PSN: The_Koolaid_Man-
This confused my friends and i as well. We all bought it on steam but steam was down a few days ago. To play local lan you need to run the config utility and make sure it is set to use gamespy and not steam. The option should be in one of the tabs in the bottom left. Then' when you run the game, hit online and it should bring up a gamespy login menu. Below it should say local lan. Hopefully that helps.
