Hi Spider, :cya:
Well just to show how much of a greenhorn at RTCW I really am I am confused by "what class" I have no idea of what you are refering to, sorry? As for the maps, well I got that one LOL!
Here's the a list of what I have so far: rtcwfiles mappack june,2002 part_1_of_2, Alone at War, and Market Garden, but with a 56k dial-up it takes me awhile :smokin: I have managed to play a whoppin' total of 2, I say 2, MP missions via server! :lookaround:
Clas refers to what type of player you are: Soldier, Medic, Eng or Lt. I play whatever the teams needs are. But my fav is Medic or LT.
Wow, you've downloaded an entire mappack, on a 56K, and only played 2 MP missions? I didn't download my first mappack for 3 months.
Right, I think I played beach about 400 times before finding the Best Site for RTCW swag!!!
And wolfy, what would you consider the best map?
I was just a plain old "GI" mud soldier as I haven't perfected any skill in MP mode yet as it's still all new and shiny yet as I've only had RTCW for about 2-3 weeks now.
As proven tonight with one of my 1BHS M8's who volunteered to give me a chance at both Lt. and Medic! We both suffered at my lack of experience, I suk, but it was fun.
If I could give a recommendation, learn medic. Become good. Its so hard to find a decent medic, mostly because its a very thankless job. You almost never have ammo, You have to learn to take enemies carrying a thompson down with a luger when neccessary. You have to run into enemy fire, risking your butt, and quite often getting killed, just to revive a LT who you know will benefit your team. Its Thankless, until you get very very good, you are never high on points, and its frustrating when you get all the way down the map, yelling, I'M A MEDIC!!! I'M A MEDIC!!! you get 10 ft away from them, and they jump in queue. But when you win a level, and you know it would have never happened had you not done your part in reviving, no better feeling.
Axis Complex is my favorite custom map. Assault is prolly my favorite base map.
As far as Medic is concerned...
I like being the Medic.
But... On unlimited lives servers, no really gives a hoot about a medic when they can just reapawn. THats why I like playing on limited lives servers. Everyone has to work a little harder and work together more. If you want good experience in any class, play in a limited lives server!!

Ahem...have to disagree with you here good buddy...I play Medic just about all the time on unlimited lives servers. The savy players wait where they are for us good old Needlers cause they can then "respawn" where they fell rather than at the spawn point which may be half a map away. Frinstance...if my Eng is "dead" on the Comm tower in Assualt and I can get to him, all he then has to do is plant...
