BigChek dont get my hopes up like that =l
yes there is nothing good on the box now except for the brainless run and gun unlimited spawn halo crap i gonna play ch 1 to get some sort of fix
if you don't play acfa you're stupid. It's the only game of its kind and extremely intensive.
AC has nothing on Chromehounds. AC is a fast paced game that is just for fun and random fooling around. where in AC do people get reconized from the squad they are in and depending on if they are really good, thier name. i for one, was know by both squad, and name. (neither will i give)
Chromehounds was one of the greatest games created for xbox. it might not have the big name such as halo or call of duty but none the less the online gameplay dwarfed any others that tried to compare.
The people who played the game made it what it was. There was the people everyone liked and the people everyone hated. then there was the peolpe who people loved when they were on thier team but hated them when they played agaisnt them. To say the least chromehounds was "colorful" in this manner lol.
How many other games have a community that sticks togehter and knows each other as well as chromehounds. NONE. How many other games on the xbox console in general had an active server, even when the game was supposidly "dying"? Chromhounds had its servers for something like over 4 years correct? thats one of the longest running servers for a game.
Speaking of servers, even through the last days of the game, it was great! just one small problem easily fixed and then the game was perfect. (ill get to that soon). Even from the good patches to the bad, the game was fun. it was made intresting due to that. tactics had to evolve...and evolve they did to say the least. From the shotgun cart patch (which was hella fun yet annoying and im glad the fixed it) to the god awful grenade patch which in all honesty ruined aspects of gameplay and took the fun out.
People always used to complain about stuff and thats just how it will always be in the game. People complain. They did it with Doubles, they got nurfed because people like me could drop them on you from miles and could show you the true way of the gunner.
Then people ***** about sniping, and again some patches affected them. same thing with cannons and asault rifles.
The biggest patches in the game of course were the Sheild and spacer patch, Double Doubles patch, Shotgun and cart patch, and the grenade patch. In my opinion the game was perfect with teh exception of only 2 flaws. Doubles should shoot at the same time, and the grenades shouldnt do the impact damage and splash damage of a heavy double round when shot at your feet or a direct hit. it ruined the game in that aspect.
Now there are a ton of ideas floating around for Chromehounds 2. Im a fan of this. keeping everything in the game right now with the addition of:
2 or 3 new countries with new maps
new weapons for each
new parts for each
the ability to have set "zones" to move your base around in
the ability for the commander to control ACV's
and anything else that is resonable and can make the gameplay fun and not "overdone" if you know what i mean. keep the same concept as the original game and you have yourself a winner!
Hopefully Ubi actually takes the game and takes it to the next level and can get this in the works. this would be one hell of a huge game to work with and would be amazing to see again. If they cant do that who knows, maybe they will find a way to reopen the servers to the original game. it would be great either way!

I really hope not. My enjoyment for the squad tactical/MMO styled strategy gameplay died when they took the game and made it "chicken leg howitzer wars online". In other words, when they destroyed all the use of any other parts, and ran off leaving the game a heaping pile of imbalance. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
Im guessing your experience with chromehounds was playing a handful of freebattles with noobs and not finding a decent squad to fight the war with, because thats where the real players where and you would find no chicken howitzers there.

Zooming around at a million miles an hour with homing weapons lol sounds like a blast.
ok that kronos guy is a ******. I've played both games and loved both of them. And i am gonna laugh my @55 off when all the morons from acfa get ac5 and think that they gonna be able to do something. AC5 is dialing the speed back and emphasizing tactics.
Actually i was in some of the top squads from the very begining of the game all the way to the very last day
I was primarly a war pilot and i had over 175,000 merit on my main account legit. combined with all my other accounts i had in the neighborhood of 400,000. I was one of the most hated people in chromehounds when i was on the other team and yet loved when i was on your team (not necs. you)
I was in the squads at thier prime. such as:
(my primary 3 at the end)
Biohazard (in thier better old days)
I refused to play with squads such as yaffa at the end of the game bc of cheap tactics. i believed in kicking your *** hound to hound.
MINIMAL GRENADES NO CARTS NO DIALERS
if i told you who i actually was you would realize that your dead wrong about me and you probly lost to me qquite a bit.
If UbiSoft is asgood as my friend says, then CH2 wood run liquidsmooth & who would'nt love that????
As long as you dont fly around with homing missles, it will be gr8! Right?
