:deal: SO one of my bud's says, "Dude you have to check out this server running a realism mod!" This is all he says about it so it sounded good and I did! Afterwards I talk to him and say, "WTF did you like about that realism mod?" He says, "Nothing at all, but I wanted to let you try it without me filling you in!" I still don't know what version it is if there are more than one and I would never post the server because I'm sure they have the best intentions nor will I give the server name out at all. Let players see and find out on their own so when they do they can say, "Damn this is what he was talking about! Now I know it probably took some hard work to make and who the heck am I to put it down, but GOOD GOD! It was a horror. Not that I did bad in score or deaths. It was like 50 kills/ 13 deaths not bad and better than most in there. First off, Bam right away my rifles off. Everyone is still standing when they should be taking a dirt nap. So I go over to a clean wall and put a pill in it to find the dead zone! OK fair enough.... It was more center on the mauser ironsight than the default which is top left. Next I notice that these guys are hitting me from sniper range with the tommy gun! I mean I can barely see them or hear their weapon and their spraying off shots and putting me down. OK I adapt and get more tactical. OK that works I see I'm not going to be able to take them down easy by keeping my distance so I plan a different attack. These guys mind you have no plan their just spraying all over hopping and fragging having a ball! Now I see some in prone so I start firing dead on shots (well they should be) but they are all hitting the dirt instead, but when I shoot the same shot from the hip the guy drops...lol! I was like wt...! So here I am shooting from the hip and dropping everyone around. I never could do that good from the hip before, but oh well run with it...Right? No wrong! I don't want to run with it. I want to aim and shoot not run around firing the rifle and dropping people! Now of course the Kill Cam is gone......Why? You know why......blah blah blah we can't play with it and you can see where we are....what ever BS. A whole other story on that! that should be in the bunny hopping thread soon! I start to notice that bullets are coming my way from guys running across the road kind of away from me and firing at someone else. OK something wrong there for sure. I don't know maybe this realism makes the bullets spread so much that some go behind you off to the left side. So I tag 5 guys in a row running around with the rifle at my hip and I pick up one of their tommyguns. I wanted to try this amazing realism smg for myself. I then back track and come up behind everyone. bah-bahbabababababababababa I take all of them out and one of my guys and I die because of friendly fire.....oops SRY dude! "np!" Thanks! By this time I'm told by my BUD that he was b*tching his aZZ off about the mod, but I always feel that you should give things a chance you just my like it.....change can be good and it can keep you on your toes! Next an enemy with a stolen STG and is a mile away fires "bip..bip...and me and a team mate are dead. I swear it's true all I heard was 2 pops. I was off to the side of the other guy with half my body blocked so go figure! Go back to my rifle and just run around in awe at how good I am from the hip. We're on the HARBOR now. Everyones dropping from my rifle. I grab that pissh*t 71 bullet useless in the real world of WWII weapon and just let it rip. No aim at all I'm hittng guys on the sides....guys in the middle.....I hit guys behind sh*t.....How? I'm just a realism bad boy!!! In truth I have no Idea! I'm sick at this point and my kills are sky high and my deaths are low. All but one of these guys are low kills and high deaths. He's on my team so it's not a worry and players are saying, "CHEATERS!" BLAH>BLAH>BLAH! I know why he likes it so much. He's a frag god here......lol! This realism mod is for the trash bin! Sure if your a dummy who needs some help in spraying the world with bullets it's for you. If your a person who wants to aim and be skillful find another realism or whatever mod! I say, "If your going to make realism tone the automatic weapons down to the real life level. Remember a bullet fired from a weapon is heading down because of gravity. Please the weapons are strong enough without some realism mod (version or name unknown to me) making them easier to use. SHAME too because my ping was like 12 to 22 on there, but I just couldn't live with the ease of play and knowing it wasn't all me. It was some realism mod helping me take down the enemy without aiming at them from long range! Like my friend said when we talked about it later on....."It's useless!" I tend to agree!:nodding:

thats what i reckon realism mods are pointless CoD is good the way it is in that point and its pretty acurate although i think that grenades should be able to go off in you hand if you hold it long enough. Now a relism mod should put the CoD sniper rifles down a notch so them snipers can be part of the game and let people play the game and enjoy it instead of creating dislike of the game becouse there are 2 many snipers

The PPSH was actually a very good smg. If you look in a lot of WWII pictures you'll see Germans carrying around stolen ones because they were certainly better than the mp40.

So, your biggest problem with this mod is that the SMG's are godly weapons? It's kind of funny that a "realism" mod makes SMGs pwn rifles. :lol: Seems the person making this mod has some of their facts backwards.

snipers are ruining CoD, who wants to be shot on hurtgen from a million miles away with noway to get to them? especially when everyone else is sniering on a team, longest round in the damn game, sniping is not camping its worse than that, thats y i would have asumed the realism mods would have cut down the sniper rifle.

In response to Pillar, Germans were using the Russians weapons because they would run out of ammo for their own. Kinda hard to get supplies to two different fronts especially when one of those is below 0.

I think everyone here is right to a point! I think it does suck to be tagged over and over by a sniper from the abyss, but the sniper rifle is part of WAR and it plays a big part in it! Maybe It would be better if the server made it so like, (a 10 man team) only 2 or 3 get to snipe the rest have to pick something else. I've seen this and even though I really wanted the sniper on some maps it wasn't that bad to deal with another until I got my hands on one! Trick is to stay off the horizon. I can do some damage on a server just by hitting guys who walk the horizon for too long. Snipers know what I mean. Next... the sniper will expect you to leave your cover from the other side because players tend to follow through. Bait him with a fake then double time it to the next cover. If your guys are not moving around or advancing stay in that cover until they do. He will move on and try to come back to you after. Then you make your move. Think flank!!! While he's in scope you can make your move up the side. If he just stays their it means either the pickin's are good or he's dumb, but don't assume the latter! Watch those loud foot steps! SMG's in this mod. Like I said I don't know what realism mod it was, but I've tried realism before for COD and it didn't seem like this one. I really wasn't aiming much at all and was doing great with the SMG and with the rifle once I stopped looking down the sight and fired from the hip. I don't know if they added some things to the realism mod or even made their own realism mod. I don't make it a practice to bag another [person(s)] hard work, but if I could pick up on the glitches (as I would call them) of the mod that quickly and start doing my own damage by mid game then taking it over on the next few maps....think what a regular to the server could do and was doing by the look of the scores another guy had their. He would team message me (once I started posting about the unfair kills I was getting with little effort) and tell me to stfu like I was blabbing a dirty little secret. Hey I'm like you guys I want to play for the play value and fun of the game. This is my way of playing army men as an adult without getting locked up in the nut house for running around the neighborhood going "Bang Bang....your dead!" lol! Hell I had alot of fun doing that as a kid and with these games I get to do it again! I don't want to play for score alone.......I'd think it would be cool if the score was kept secret until the end of the match and even then it only told you "ALLIES WIN!" or who ever! I posted a great scoring game in another post because it was a cool game for me. I must add that my score on the next map was a horror nothing seemed to work right for me. Then things went much better on the next few maps. I don't want a mod taking the fun out of working for kills! On the PPSH yes is was a fine gun and If were them I would steal one and use it. 71 bullets can come in handy when your life is on the line{for real}, but like all smg's recoil and distance just don't mix. Yes it hard to believe but I'm b*tching about doing good with weapons. This is because I know in my heart of hearts I wasn't trying too and after awhile I was giving about 5% effort and it was coming out as 70 to 80% effort. Someone in one of these post said it all with the statement "IT's ONLY GAME!" Sorry to this person I forgot who you are or I would have used the real quote! Anyway I can deal with a player jumping to prone with 80lbs on their back and a weapon in hand. I can deal with a sniper who has my number where ever I pop my head out. I can deal with weaker weapons and players that out class me which are many I won't lie or try to say I know it all and have eveything in this game work out to the point that I'm such a bad aZZ your going to have trouble against me, but I can't deal with a mod that can boost your preformance without you working at it. Lastly Yes I will try to avoid this type of realism, but am open to trying other types if there are any. Forgive me if I come across as rude in these posts. They are meant to be! I read them later and feel that they do tend to slant in that direction. It may be because most times my posts meet with so much rejection in other forums that I forget that others have valid views of their own!

Yea, I would give him more karma if I didn't keep getting the spread the karma around message. Anyways, I really don't seek out these mods, but from what I have heard, most are total crap. But, people are taking their own time to make them, so I won't put down their effort.
