Play under NS-IceFire...usually find myself on the Insomnia356 servers...Mashtuur, Wake island...

Oh and the server with Winnipeg in its name is really great for me as the pings are low but it may be more of a problem for you.

I play under the same name. Haven't played in a little while though. Looking to get back into it at some point. Maybe this is a good reason? There is nothing like getting back behind a Ma-Deuce again http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif or laying in wait for someone to come across my crosshairs...

Thanks guys, I am enjoying it, but more on infantry only servers.

The air power and artillery is just totally overpowering for a noob, he has no chance....

For example :-

I get to a capture point with some buddies, in what we think is overpowering firepower say one tank and two bradleys.

As soon as the enemy commander sees his flag turn white, he rains down ten tons of artillery onto the capture point and everyone dies. repeat this over and over.

If the commander doesnt spot it then an aircraft does. If you try to lock on he just turns up into the stratosphere and you lose the lock.

Its good, but eveyones KD ratio on the server apart from pilots and commanders seems to be negative. Airpower is so overwhelming.


I will look out for you guys. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Yeah thats the trick...sometimes its better to sneak in ones and twos to actually capture the CP and everyone else is blasting away from a distance. So as soon as the CP is captured everyone runs like hell (jeeps and humvee's are the preferred escape method) and on to the next CP.

The problem with infantry only maps is that I find the battle gets bogged down into a killing zone where anyone who tries to make it through the zone and break out is blasted away at by snipers, rifles, or machine guns. Its sort of WWI esque. The tanks and jeeps help with the breakouts.

Mashtuur is a good one because yes there is artillery but the only air power are transport helicopters. Karkand has no air power available on the map.

Have you managed to unlock any guns?

Yes, I got my first unlock, yesterday and decided on the L85A1 as people said it was sort of a cross between a short range sniper rifle and an assault rifle, good for both situations.

It was either that or the G36C, and I like the M4 in the special ops class, so I ddint think it would be much better than that.

What have you chosen? I have been told the G36E is the best weapon, but I dont have the special forces addon pack. The P90 looks nice too! I will pick it up if I see it in a bargain bin, like I did with BF2 (got it for 7.99)

P90 looks great because you need a little more firepower when you are a Tank Destroyer class. The Mp5 and esp the chinese submachine gun arent very powerful.

not wanting to derail the game,

but i say pick up a copy or ARMA. track ir is implemented for vehicles, AND soldier head movement. its perfectly fluid, and really brings you into the game..

i like BF2, but with track ir, the immersion in arma is awesome.

Project Reality mod is the way to go with BF2. It won mod of they year (for any game) and changes the game play dramatically. For the type of gamers we tend to be around here it will catapult the game to the state we felt it should have already been. I been playing COD4 on XBLive for the past month so have not played it in awhile as I anticipate the latest version (.7) to be out at years end.

http://www.realitymod.com/ If not for this mod I would have traded off BF2 years ago.

HaVoK.308 is my name for BF2. HaVoK308 for Steam games and XBLive.

PS. If you get the PRM I highly recommend the TacticalGamer server which has great team minded players and excellent Admins.

S!
