I'm new to BF, I just got it last week. I heard about forgotten hope so I checked out the site and was really impressed with all the WWII hardware so I downloaded it. I read somewhere that jumping up and down and zig-zagging...won't help you evade gunfire in this mod. Is this true? If so, any stragegy tips for staying alive till I could get good enough to hold my own?

Think realism, so.. Dont cross open terrain if there is a covered approach to your objective, dont expect to rampage trough enemy lines by yourself, people on the defensive can kill you easier then you can kill them.

Yeah thats the one think about FH, if you make even the smallest mistake such as too much of your tank sticking out or hiding in the wrong building you will die very fast. FH has a very steap learning curve.

I introduced a mate from college to FH about 2 months back (-[MI5]-Commando101) and hes got very good at FH and often comes in the top 10 if not top 3. His flying skills are much better than the average FH pilot, though he was a very good pilot back in his Vanilla days and hes pretty damn good with a rifle. I just taught him the basics such as flanking, which tanks not to bother attacking the front of and some basic gameplay tips and his experience has taken him as far as hes got now.

Dont Bunnyhop. Dont PPSH whore. Dont spawncamp. Dont be an ass. Always leave an M4A1 if I'm around. Prepare to get your ass kicked.

Oh, and try to have fun too.

Just do the same that veterans do and soon you will be a hardened FH grunt. Remember is a realism mod, so study the diferent advantages and disadvantages of each vehicle and weapon.
