makes no sense.
Simply hide people, if those smg people are anoying camp somewhere, they will try to come and kill you so that they say they are better , simple as this, hide and then right when they gone pop back up outta the chimney or bush you where in and simply pop em one in the head, always works for me!!!, if they find me i run or i shoot with pistol witch has 40 % chance to kill em if you are very skilled with it!!! Good Noob Killing!!! :lookaround:
Its good to get awesome with the handgun, i kick ass with and and sometimes i can nail a guy from like 50 or more ft sometimes. Hell one time i sniped a guy with my handgun from one end to the other on Hurtgen, that was fun.
It's Just Ketchup (n00b)Am I hearing all this right? Sniper battles suck, MG battles suck, nades suck, teamwork sucks, n00bs are on every server... OMG man u just have a problem with video games I think... Maybe if you played a different game or just played offline you'd find less to complain about... that or create a mod to let you shoot other hunters in Deer Hunter 2004 - that sounds like your cup of tea... nothing but rifles and slow rates of fire. Or maybe a turn-based FPS is more your pace... more limits... must have more limits... less variety... more one-dimensional... variety sux - too many n00bs... My god man, read the box next time you buy a game.
No need to be so defensive. Unless you are a n00b yourself. The perfect balanced game is where the server has weapon limiting, limited ammo and one grenade per player. That means those who have chosen Snipers can pick a good spot and take out the MGs on the other side and those with MGs run ahead to get the enemies Snipers with 1-2 staying behind to watch the Snipers backs. That is teamwork. Sniper battles do suck, when they are just Sniper battles. MG battles suck because it just gets to a point where the man with the fastest rate of fire/most powerful gun wins. A combination is best. Its people like you that just ruin games for everyone with your obsene and non-realistic tactics. WW2 shooters are suppost to be as close to reality as you can make it, right?

Lol. I once got a headshot on a guy when we had both had to reload and got out our pistols on D-Day+7. Everyone came back saying "nice shot". Hehe.
gopaloomakes no sense.
If you were referring to my post, i'll explanin again. In real life you have to engage the reload lever in the bolt lock thingy, in CoD, it's done automated, therefore every rifle is a semi-automatic, the Bolt actioneds are just slower than Garand. The game developers merely made it easier for the rifle crowd to get people to play with it. If we wanted realism to the game, we also needed to have another button for cocking a rifle then, no?
i guess. i really dont know lol.
but wouldnt take more time to fire a clip of KAR98 than M1?? and i dunno if this is true or not, but on the last roujnd of the M1, dont u gotta do something with the M1's bolt or something?
Wow. Playing FPS games since the very first Doom and Wolfenstein 3D but I guess I'm a n00b. What's that smell? BS maybe??? I was playing these games before you stopped crapping up your pants involuntarily - back when sprites ruled the day (what's a sprite??)
Like I said before, read the box. United Offensive will have everything you're asking for, so why are you expecting it out of the initial release? Look what you bought, it's a Quake3 engine FPS *based* on WW2. There are many MANY more tactical shooters out there than CoD, it takes all of two brain cells to know this. The whole Rainbow Six series, America's Army, Enemy Territory, etc...
BTW I don't recall proclaiming to be a run n gunner or claim to use unrealistic tactics. I have no clue WHERE you read that. So if it's ppl like me who ruin the game for you, I guess that's ONE MORE complaint on top of campers, blind nade tossers, run n gunners, n00b filled teamplay servers, weapons that hold more than 5 shots in the magazine, scope users, effective dodgers, sneak attacks, etc etc etc...
If I had that many issues with a game I bought I'd either take it back to the store or simply never play it again.
On to the discussion - another element of "realism" you may not want to overlook, what with your desire to limit ammo and all - remember there were soldiers tasked only with resupplying their squadmates with ammo - gophers. Although I can't see how anyone would WANT to play out that role OR have fun doing so. But if you want realism... you need to incorporate some REALITY. BTW what you describe for a perfect team game sounds *suspiciously* like Enemy Territory so I really do believe you are playing the wrong game. You'd probably enjoy ET much more than CoD because it sounds like you want CoD to be ET.
I like CoD just fine the way it is, and the expansion is only going to make it better IMO. Little things like tanks, jeeps, and trucks which you will have to hotwire to take control of and use - unlike the BF1942 style of just jumping in and finding the keys in the ignition - you'd have to defend the vehicle for awhile to gain control of it. There will be class limiting, but I see a flaw in that which will never go away - say you want to be a rifleman and join a server. No rifles left. No snipers left. You're stuck all the time using weapons you don't want playing a style you aren't comfortable with and you don't end up having much fun at all. That's why on ET we see run n gun "n00bs" everywhere. They usually use rifles and have no clue what a MG is really for, but if they wanna play THIS round they have to settle for MG's - which can annoy them to the point of not caring about teamwork anymore, so they lone wolf and go on killing sprees a la Unreal Tournament. Lack of choice = lack of fun. If I wanted to be told what to do all the time I'd enlist for real - I just wanna join a game online and shoot it out with whatever gun I'm in the mood to use, whether that be a MG or rifle of some kind. The 50 bucks I plopped down to buy the game should give me the right to choose.
If you're gonna have class limiting then the only way it will be appealing is if you "apply" to use a certain class and then before the next round begins a lottery determines who got what they applied for and who gets stuck with a gun they don't wanna use. Also if you had more SPECIFIC orders for each squadmate so people actually would know (n00b or not) what their particular job was. Like you say, if you need MG support you should be assigned it and not have to hope someone with a MG will follow you and cover your back out of the goodness of their heart. Teamwork does not exist without proper communication and coordination. How many n00bs do you ever see talking to their teammates? That is why they act n00bish in the first place. They probably don't even feel part of the team cuz nobody says shit to them anyways, so can you blame them for not helping the team? The team needs to do their part for their new squadmate and inform them of current objectives and how they can help for a change. Every soldier deserves a briefing. THEN these complaints would be JUSTIFIED but faulting the player for the lack of coordination and communication by his teammates is just stupid. Give them a clue. A purpose. They may end up saving your butt if you TRY to include them once in awhile.
If only you'd played before we had in-game chat or physics models or textures, polygons and 3D cards - you might not complain so much. We've got it pretty damn good now compared to those days. Just play and have fun. What seems to be n00bish behavior in CoD was the way all those old FPS games played anyways. Where were you when the circle strafe was INVENTED?? It took me over 15 years to become the "n00b" I am today.
I'm surprised Brens arent mentioned in this forsaken list of "N00b" weapons - imo theyre the most unbalancing of all.
On that note is there a list of weapons and what their actual stats are? - the manual is either innacurate or just out of date.. theres no way in hell the MP44 does as much damage as a Bren.
I'm just not going to bother reading your lecture, but I will say this: Calm down. You are taking this thing waaaaay too serious. Been playing Doom and Wolfenstein since release is fine, but doesn't exempt you from being a n00b or not. We have different views. Stop arguing.
