I think i might start running a server for the oldest version I have or can get. Those were good times. I has a lot of friends that would join my server all the time but i've lost contact with them. I liked this game much better when it was a smaller community sure the graphics werent as good but the players were good to play with. And thats where it counts in a game.

Actually I think the game is OK, even though I`m a n00b to it, with the only problem where you have to reload manually.

Tacticious 8) HORRIBLY unbalanced gameplay; I understand that they wanted to make it very realistic, and that every game has to eventually sacrafice realism for gameplay. This game is rediculous in the balance-area. This game is realistic with sniper rifles, grenades, and rockets, but that's it. It takes around 4-10 shots in the chest to kill a person. That is BS. It will take one shot to put someone out of commision, even if you hit them in the arm. It will also take 1-3 shots to put a man into shock / kill a man. I'm not suggesting they put a shock feature in the game, just a little more realism or gameplay. Right now they have their realism out of order with their crazy gameplay.

You are so right with this one. And you are right with the vest thing too.. Actually it doesn't even take a assault rifle shot with FMJ to penetrate Kevlar vests. Smaller caliber military rounds are able to put a hole through those. Kevlar has been proved to be ineffective in ballistic tests. Some vests have steel, titanium or ceramic plates, these can stop a 7.62 bullet. Very bulky. And btw bullets going through your vital orgains or any part of your body isn't the only thing that can kill you. Kinetic energy can put you in a box due internal damages and fracture your bones. And theres no way you continue running around and jumping up and down like a little bunny after that. And my opinion is it wouldn't do any damage to gameplay. Rounds would be shorter, people would have to co-operate and that running-strafing-jumping-around-shit would be reduced.

uuuh lets just say you suck @ the game, and thats why u think it sucks. you dont need to play 24/7 or even Close to that to get 15 honor. im sure more the half of the people in these forums (excluding you) could go from 10 honor to 15 honor in one day, 2 tops. go cry to mommy, you arent doin good on the computer game so u flame it. :'( "waaa waaa mommmy, im terrible @ this good game that other people like.. it must suck waaaaaa waaaaaaa moooooommy" :'(

im pretty sure slim to none of the people in these forums give a crap if u like the game, or if you leave. so just leave. dont say anything, Just leave. make the world a better place.

I don't care if I suck at the game. I would propably die more often if the damage modell changed. So I'd suck more. And still I think it would be change to better gameplay. I think it's ridiculous that m24 kills with one shot and with assault rifle it takes 3. And don't get me wrong. The game is great except this one thing..

TacticiousAfter playing this game on and off from version 0.18 to 2.0, and hoping that each patch will add bots or make the game fun I've come to a conclusion. This game will not get better. The only thing they do with the game is add new things that don't solve any kind of problems that were there to begin with. Here's what I mean: 1) Camping; This is something that is done in the Army FREQUENTLY, and yet you can be BANNED for camping an objective. 2) One-man-armies; This is all the game is. If you have 10 people on your team, you've got 10 one-man-teams that are supposedly helping you. 3) Last man standing; The game never lets anyone know who is still alive on their team without them pressing F1 to look and F1 to bring the screen down. Come on! No one EVER looks at the scores in the middle of a game! 4) Land of the frequent flaming; Everyone in the AA community is a flaming jackass that criticizes every move you make in a negative manner. 5) Honor; You have to have 15 honor to play on SF only maps. Honor is earned 1 point at a time by playing 1-10 rounds. So, all in all, you have to be a 24/7 AA junkie who has all the time in the world. Not only do you have to complete training that tells you you used CHEATS to complete, you have to play ALL DAY EVERY DAY. 6) Lag; Everyone in the game lags at awkward times, making it EXTREMELY hard to tell whether you have to lead a little more with your shots. I tried playing this game on a business T3 line at my telecommunications building. On the lists I get between 0-25 ping for games, when I get in there I have around 600 ping at times. I do a ping test on sites and using the windows console and I get around 5 ping to yahoo.com, dslreports.com, ETC. 7) Round Time; If you die, you have to watch some other guy jumping around trying to cope with lag for another 10 minutes. Don't tell me this is more realistic because it's not. If it were your account would be gone the second you died. 8) HORRIBLY unbalanced gameplay; I understand that they wanted to make it very realistic, and that every game has to eventually sacrafice realism for gameplay. This game is rediculous in the balance-area. This game is realistic with sniper rifles, grenades, and rockets, but that's it. It takes around 4-10 shots in the chest to kill a person. That is BS. It will take one shot to put someone out of commision, even if you hit them in the arm. It will also take 1-3 shots to put a man into shock / kill a man. I'm not suggesting they put a shock feature in the game, just a little more realism or gameplay. Right now they have their realism out of order with their crazy gameplay. 9) Teamplay; Now I've played a few games where my team was doing GREAT with nice teamplay and cooperation. But that's few among many. Most of the time you've got retarded monkies running around with a rifle. There should be a leader system where there is a leader assigned that commands people around and if they go off into their own world then the leader can team-vote to put them out of commision. If there are 50% of the team's vote in favor then pass the vote and make him an observer. That would help solve the one-man-team issue and also help add fun gameplay. 10) 3 attachments!?; Wow, last time I checked you could add a VERY large amount of attachments to a weapon. Bipod, NV scope, Suppresor, Battery ATCC (for lasers and some scopes), Handle, Bayonette, Infrared Laser, Infrared Scope, M203 Grenade launcher, Duckbill, I-Iron Sights, Retractable stock (although this is more of a permanent mod), just to name a few. Not to mention you can't even use your weapon mods unless you have 15 honor, or in other words, 24 hours per day 7 days per week. So, I'll just quit for now until they release bots and just play on LAN. No need for you to flame me about "No one is making you play the game!", "Then leave!", "Then don't play!" because I've done that, I just wanted to express an opinion that I share with many other people I know. Oh yeah, and I try to get technical support on the official AA forums and they have turned off registration. Wow, what a reliable system they are running. Next, let's turn off the ability to throw grenades, you can only take the pin out and suicide bomb. And then let's disable the ability to move. Oh and lets add some disguised people in the team so new players will shoot their own team mates. That will teach those people that are trying to play! Honestly, what does that do? The other team still sees you as a RED and opfor, and sees themselves as the US Army. That's a dumb pointless feature. They could have spent that extra 5 minutes it took them to impliment the "spy" feature and put it towards something useful, like adding better features people will like.

Well sir i couldn't have said that better myself. You summed up everything in the game. Unless they add some kind of SP game i refuse to play this piece of shit they call a game! :nodding: The honor system is really a bitch like you mentioned. The second part of sf training impossible because of the super human guards with eyes on the back of their head and super power hearing powers. The developers decided to piss me off furthermore by also making you have to get 15 honor! It took a whole fucking week just to pass the basic training. Hell airbourne school was a bitch too. trying to land in a small circle from that high up! Good job buddy you summed this whole game up:D

E&E isnt very hard, low and slow. WHnever you leave a server the score you have is transferred to the server, you don't have to say for the whole round. You only need 5,000 points to get to 15 honor whic could easily be done within a week at most. Airborne was actually easy for me, just press e at the right time.

lol the m24 is a stronger gun, thats why it kills in one shot. and @ times it takes more then one.

E&E isnt supposed to be easy @ all. other wise crappy n00bs like both of you would be able to be Special Forces.. and the point is to not have crappy players like you two being SF because you suck. thats why its hard, and thats why u cry urself to sleep @ night.

M24 is stronger gun? Like a laser pistol or ultrasound cannon? Get real!!! 7.62mm round doesn't make it that powerfull. You shouldn't open your mouth before you know the facts.

I've done testing in "single player". Assault rifle: 3 shots in the middle of the chest, m24: same spot, 1 shot. So there's no need to speculate about that anymore.
