Hello all, some of you might recognize me from other areas on these forums. My laptop recently got its internet connection fixed, and I am currently downloading this game. Before I start to play a game, I normally try to check out the forums and glean advce, learn of good hiding spots, and other such thingymabobs. So.... Anyone care to give me some advice?

Hehe.. come play with me and I'll show you what little I know :p.

Obviously, you've got to complete training first. You only need Basic training to play normal maps, but there are some maps that require other training. Most of it is easy, so I suggest doing at least Basic, Adv. Marksmanship, Medic, and Airborne. SF training isn't required for most maps (some have optional SF training), but it helps to have it.

You'll want to start out and Maps like "MOUT McKenna", and "Bridge Crossing". These will give you the feel of the game. Then later on, maps like Pipeline, SF Hospital (this has optional SF slots, I'll explain later).

Random advice:

  • Figure out the controls early; look at the setup, change what you want, get used to it.
  • Try exploring a few maps by yourself to see what's where
  • When playing with others for the first few times, stick with someone, see where they go and what they do.
  • Report in when you move to another major area (default key is 'u')

Don't get weasled into a clan right at the start. It doesn't help :p If you join a clan, find one with good, active members.

A program called TeamSpeak (Google for it :p.. or get me on MSN and I'll send the installer) helps a lot. Many servers have it, but sometimes no one is on it.

Earlier, I said that SF was "optional". This means that some maps only have "normal" weapons (MOUT McKenna, Pipeline, etc), some have ONLY SF weapons (requires SF, maps like SF Pipeline), and others have slots for both (SF Hospital, etc). These maps have slots for SF weapons (again, requires SF training), but also slots for "normal" weapons.

That's about all I can think of, and I've got to go soon... hope I helped :D See you on AA.. hopefully.. :p

Yep, if there was ever a tour of Levenworth waiting to happen it would be the obs course DI and the ensuing ROEs for killin' that bastidge.. I still say that is the reason you never see the sum beech, only hear him. :)
