"Be WARNED" WHO THE FUCK DO YOU THINK YOU ARE? FUCK YOU BAN ME!
I am REALLY new to BF2.I was wondering how do I get to the commander screen(I know really newbie question).I just want a little help no "HAHAHNOOB!!111!".Thanks all.
tab, cap lock and shift are your friends each one has a function .... Try them out :D The majority of the people here aren't like that ... so ask your questions...Just start your own threads.
Thanks for your help!

During your stay at filefront, he will be your god. :mad:
Thanks for the tips guys. I have played as Commander a few times since posting that and on the whole, think I have done quite well - no complaints from the troops. Won 2 lost 1. I find using the zoom quite slow (probably my PC) so tend to avoid it. I must admit I am guilty of spotting everything on scan - guess I need to be zoomed to tell which red dot is a tank. I will stick to spotting what I think are major threats, such as spec ops going in round the back of a base, or an APC coming across water. I was playing as Commander last night and about half the guys were not in Squads and I could have been of real help to them if they were....so message to everyone - PLEASE JOIN A SQUAD!! U dont have to take orders as such but at least you can get important messages (such as arty on your location!). Not really sure on the point of Violent Crows post - assume those comments are about a bad Commander? If you dont like what he is doing tell him - if he still doesnt do well then mutiny...dont just slag him off - how is he going to get better? Again thanks guys.....
I didn't make it!
accurate arty. this depends on your ability to anticipate enemy movement.use scan before a launch.or uav ,to see the position of a large group of enemy forces.dont waste arty on one person.stay close to your equipment.guaranteed someones going to blow it up.kill them first.use your supplies for your men in the battlefield.stay hidden.use engineers to repair equipment.they get points too.dont give out too many orders at once.2 squads can get streched thin and they wont listen anyway.4 or 5 squads can do 2 or 3 flags at a time.most important play the map as a foot soldier know the terrain.before you command.
Snipes With Artillery
22nd March 2005
enerally, it is a bad idea to use artillery on a single enemy. If the OPFOR is advancing with multiple armored vee-hickles, THAT is the opportune time to call in the thungder. I have actually been in that situation a few times, and the enemy commander never seemed to notice me and my 4 buudies in a collection of tanks and APCs^.^ But as a commander, aside from directing your troops, your primary objective is to hide like a bitch. You are not a sniper. You are NOT a Spec Ops guy sneaking into the enemy base. You are not an AT guy taking out a T-90. You have a shotgun, and are hiding somewhere close to your artillery. I generally do well as a commander, but only when the people OBEY me...
