The whole single player campaign is normally geared up to make you play as a lone wolf then you go online and have to learn another way to play....
I like team based objective driven Multi-player the only concern I have about this game is the psyche gas
So although not everyone will do this but I am going to call this psyche gas abuse.... If you are losing and you have made more kills than others but because somone else is higher up the table this player will perhaps become frustrated... Then they will do what they have to do to unleash psyche gas either in the map or as a support weapon drop it on there own team and kill their teammates.
Or people will ust drop psyche gas on their own team do this for the sake of it because they can and when psyche gas is dropped friendly fire is switched on so they will do this and stop playing as a team and team kill for a laugh.
It all depends on the people that will be on the server but once it starts people will want revenge too so I can see matches turning into stupid psyche gas war amongst there own teams creating a new objective because thats what you have allowed to happen with this mechanic
It's like a temporary deathmatch switch.... What game are we playing again? oh yeah domination but people are spamming psyche gas everywhere and just killing everyone they can... ah perhaps I'll go on another server..... Oh they are doing it on here aswell..... Oh so this is the game
I know it has been described as fun like oh is this guy on my team or is he not? he looks like a black demon.... Quickest answer to the problem I'll shoot him anyway just incase he is the enemy better safe than sorry and so it goes on even if you are playing as a team you just want to be safe than blown away yourself.

I understand your frustrations but I think you are a bit unrealistic. I would suggest a break from fc2. The game can be infuriating. Especially with the recent packet drop.

I will point out that your issues are not the weapons but lag . As a rush player I feel the pain and I have had to change my playstyle to a more campy, keep everything in front and below me strategy. I agree with spine and otaro sun (even though he's a scrub) the weapons aren't overpowered because they all kill well. I assume you roll g3 as that was the only gun you didn't mention (imo ak47 is like the para just Noreen kick and terrible lateral movement ). Very few people can successfully run g3 against saws or ars. The gun doesn't have the power nor the range you may get away with it against noobs but good players should eat you alive.
Pretty much, my only advice is the not rush as often and use a better gun.
Please note if your team is not good your will get spawn camped nothing that can be done about it nor should anything be done . If you can't protect your spawn then maybe you shouldn't win.
I saw spawn killing but I NEVER spawned killed, because anyone who does is nothing more than an unskilled coward.

[QUOTE=otarosrun;8538547]spinetooth - I agree the MGL was the only overpowered weapon. Which is why they fixed it post-patch. However, there is no way you were even close to being the best. If you only played player matches you were in the wrong place for the competitive field. I'll chalk this up to you not running into anybody good in player matches but I assure you there are insane players in ranked.
No no dude it's not like I was on player matches in my entire time of FC2. As I said, my rank got reset twice, for no reason. That happened sometimes with players. I'm sure you've heard of it. On ranked I was still a table turner.
But to say that ranked players were more skilled than those in player matches, I really have to disagree. People in ranked matches were awesome because they played the map so many times they knew where everything was, myself included. But when I got to player matches, at first I didn't know what to do because everytime I played, the map was different. It's much more challenging. Player matches is where the majority of fresh meat go to yes, but not everyone in there was less skilled than a ranked player. At my peak I was so good that it didn't matter what map I was on or if I've seen it before. And if I fought a clan match on a ranked map, yea we did get beat. But that's only because they already had a system and strategy down for everything in the map. If they played us in player matches, they wouldn't stand a chance against a fair, custom made map.

The difference between player-map good and ranked-good is major league vs minor league.
My rank too got you reset so I hear you. You say "we" got beat. Who is this "we"? Maybe I've heard of some of the friends you rolled with. But the fact of the matter is, no offense, that the best players of FC2 is well understood. There is virtually no chance there was some amazing player that has been kept secret. You do know what you are talking about otherwise and make valid points against elitesniper.
also mintage it is otaros run, no sun.
Uhhhh...I think you may be overestimating yourself a bit. As otaronoob said, there is no way there was some amazing player hidden away. We know everyone and everyone knows us. If you haven't heard of oSo then some questions will be asked.

As well, the player maps make it difficult for you and them, meaning they are just as lost as you are. At your peak ,you would've quit out or call us cheaters, and yes we would have beaten you on a fair, custom map. We won every tournament we played in but one and a majority of those were custom maps. As much of a table turner as you think you are, I think playing us would be a very educational experience for you.
I do like you too. You seem to have a good understanding of what's nooby and what's not. Too bad otaronoob doesn't.
Mintage, the person who took my name, replaced the V with an M and decided to call it his own. Atleast otaros run is original
You never heard of me because I didn't want to be discovered. I didn't ever make connections or want my name known at the time because I always had the element of surprise on my side in a match. If people knew me, I was afraid they'd go, "okay this is a really skilled player. So prepare to fight back hard." That, and my first gamertag was Punch In Chest. I switched it to a couple afterwards such as Kable J, but eventually stuck with Pulloff. My most notable friends off the top of my head was Mr. Wiennie and his little possie, since he liked to network. I hate to drop his name because his gameplay methods didn't reflect mine at all. But I can't really remember anyone else lol. Oh yea there was A Toxic Hobo, Taco Shuriken, vVSoulStealerVv, Cincinnat1, to name a small few. I never stayed with a clan for long because the leaders stunk or we became inactive. But I always remember the clans officially breaking up because I myself left or if the leader cracked.

I officially stopped playing FC2 at one point because it became to easy for me...though now I'm so rusty you can forget about it haha
