{9thInf}QbanRev*E*Axis easily wins nordwind everytime ive played it since .7 How can they get base camped by arty when u can leave your main with 6 tanks right off the bat against the allies inept bazookas, spread out positions and 2 tanks capable of killing any axis tank. I get more mad as allies in that map when the nebel gets you in the main, which happens everytime ive played it. But hey, thats what happens when you cant hold the front. My point with quit whining about it has more or les to do with my competitive spirit. Someone who is texting "YOU SMACKTARD" is not helping the team any more, he is creating a distraction, making several people comment back, and ruining the fun for everyone. How can you get mad at the enemy when it isnt a glitch thats killing you. I get mad at myself and my mates for allowing us to get in an unsatisfactory position. When i say its my teams fault, thats what i mean, MY teams fault, that includes me. and being a veteran player, I should be able to make the difference in leading the people I fight with by calling more tanks, texting breakthroughs and strategies etc. If youve played with me you prolly notice me saying "follow me" and enemy armor spotted constantly.

Yup- The text-spammers are the most annoying Players: Not every Player is on TS/Vent. The chat is the tactical fall-back communication. If you want to talk about "dis, dat,and dee udder thing", that's fine; just DO IT IN A FORUM...

Gen'l KnightIt's not a bug on that map and, though very legal, I don't like it. There is no skill in picking a spot on your screen, aiming at it, and racking up kills all game long with no recourse. I'm not sure if this has changed for 0.7 but on Nordwind that gun could be changed to run out of ammo. Of course, the supply trucks are not far away but ...

If it's so easy, why doesn't everyone do it? I get pretty sick of hearing people complaining about artillery. It's part of the game, get over it. I don't like planes straffing me, in my main. Since I am a terrible pilot, I really can't do anything about it. I could spend alot of time, trying to be a better pilot. If you don't like artillery, then learn how to defeat it. I got sick of people spamming the axis main, on Guad, so I figured out where their arty is, and now can pay them back, when I want. Same thing with Pegasus. Instead of complaining about the mortars, I learned to find them, with our mortars. I have spent ALOT of boring time, asking for a spot, which I rarely get. Yet artillery can be one of the most effective weapons on most maps. I would always prefer to use a spotter, especially one that knows what makes a good spot. If for no other reason, then I get to see the carnage I am unleashing. I am not great, at alot of things, on FH. But I am great at arty. So, if there's artillery around, F6, F6! Cuz I am going to use it. ESPECIALLY, on the pilots. It my one chance at payback.

yea i agree with you roadrunner. Especially about killing pilots before they take off. But what i think is rediculous is when ppl say DONT BASECAMP when u go into their main and knife their artillery man and put a satchel on it. How else am i gonna kill it? I shoot ppl off the nebel in nordwind from 2 grids away and they call me a camper, or a knife a 105 on goodwood and "omg u camper" lol well i like winning, and im not letting a 105 spawn kill my teammates all game because the server declares killing him outside of their spawn point "camping"

The one thing i agree with knight tho is that on peguses, there is absolutely no reason why the axis should have unlimited mortars. Thats extremely unrealistic, i dont know about that particular batle, but through the course of the war no side could just frivelissly shell the enemy with mortars at all times, if they Could, no advancement would be made {see BoB outside of foy, if the nazis could just keep firing them forever, they would have} The only game thats even comparable to fh in realism that ive played (an rts called close combat) had it right with mortars. You used those puppies like they were your last defense against field of rushing inf or a placed gun that was hidden. Not a bloody infinate death ray from above.

i dont play any of the maps that include the pixel aim problem. thats how i deal with it, i leave. i requested they make it so you cant fire the arty without a spot, this didnt happen. so i just simply dont play those maps. i refuse to play maps that have that level of spawn rape in it.

the only one that ever pisses me off is stalingrad, nordwind just doesnt get that bad. the allies never are ina positition to rape anymore. Shit i just played a map of nordwind where as axis i didnt even die (p4) and we wiped um off the map in 10 minutes. And earlier a wolf dude complimented my flag rush at 5 of seelow heights with a perfect bombardment of arty. I took the flag by amiracle and i told him to fire as i hid! It was a wonderful display of teamwork and we Annhilated the germans in one fell swoop! (the arty killed about 30 of them as they rushed in to try and retake the flag)

'LIGHTNING [NL']Sun Tsu said: "Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected."

Thus 'backcapping' as you call it is one of the principles of the basic art of war and very much so a valid tactic.

RL != FH Sun Tsu was NOT talking about riding around in a jeep going for back-flags! WW2 was NOT won by single guys in their jeeps driving into german cities! If you think that maybe Sun Tsu is not for you.

@Topic: This kinda crap will thankfully be no longer an issue as BF2 supports scalable maps.

I agree, that people should be allowed to sneak into enemy territory, to take out the arty. It only seems fair. I am not one for base-camping. Especially the kind, where someone drives a Tiger, into allied main, on a map like 318, taking all the allied armor out, and just raking up kills. UNLESS, the server rules say it's ok. I used to play on the (forgot the name now...CRAP) server, where base-camping was allowed. "We use the whole map" was kind-of their slogan. It was ok, there, because EVERYONE played by the same rule. Even back to my vanilla days, I have a personal rule, to never enter enemy base, with anything but my knife. [aside]Don't try this with Yen, on the [WOLF] server, unless you want a swift kick! :)[/aside] People may argue, that I am a bad sport, because of my use of arty. Anyone that really knows me, knows that I love a fair fight. On Pegasus, one night, the allies were so terrible, we actually went down to two mortars, to make it possible for them to advance. They still couldn't, so we dropped down to ONE. Arty is just something I am good at, and sometimes, I get a kick, out of completely owning with it. It may be easy to rack up kills with, but it's NOT easy to not rack up tk's also. Or to keep an eye on the mini-map, and know when to cease fire, for your infantry and tanks to advance. I have never pixeled on Nordwind. For one reason, I never found the main. The other, is I simply love the other aspects of that map. The infantry, and tank battles are so much fun. Wonder if it's cause of a lack of pilots?:)

Basecamping is dumb. This is a game and not RL. Even in RL basecamping would not have happend, only spec ops would dare go close to an enemy base.

I try to play as noble as I can. This is a game played by people who want to have as much fun as I want to have. I will happily loose a game if I knew it was a fair fight.

@Roadrunner: Yeah tks when in artillery is mostly not your fault. People should not blindly run into the place you are shelling. Not to mention a short 'cease fire' is worth gold so you know when your team is ready to rush the place.

Never a bad idea, to call out "artillery ready for barage", followed by a quick "TAKE COVER", 6-8 times. Let em know you're coming!
