things that piss me off when playing return to castle wolfenstein multiplayer:

1.) when you're in a dog fight with a guy and you empty a whole friggin clip on him, he realizes that you're injecting high doeses of lead in him, and somehow he gets off like 5 shots and you're dead.

2.) when you're 100 friggin yards away from someone, and they manage to put every bullet they have in you! even when im scrambling like there's 8 scorpions in my boxers. and i already checked for super-strong earth magnets in my pockets... not there.

3.) when (on the beach) support fire somehow gets INSIDE the bunker. that pisses me off like you wouldn't believe. i dont remember laser-guided missles being in WWII.

4.) why venom bullets are so damn powerful. two of those bullets will kill you. youd think that they'd make the bullet "ass-kicking" power wouldnt be so high because of the high fire-rate.

5.) panzers.

1.) when you're in a dog fight with a guy and you empty a whole friggin clip on him, he realizes that you're injecting high doeses of lead in him, and somehow he gets off like 5 shots and you're dead. .............. Understand that first, the accuracy of both MP40's and Thompsons are not that great. The longer you hold down the fire button, the more inaccurate the gun becomes. Fire in short (2 or 3 round bursts) in a CROUCHING position is the most effective and accurate way to fire. I've picked off Allies on the beach from the upper bunker with just a Lugar. ...................

Shots to the body are less deadly than shots to the head. 2 shots to the head and the enemy is dead. ( I should be a poet)

This " RTCW gun physics" applies to your #2 gripe as well.----------------------------- 3.) when (on the beach) support fire somehow gets INSIDE the bunker. that pisses me off like you wouldn't believe. i dont remember laser-guided missles being in WWII. ..............

The artillary strike "firing for effect" on a bunker has devasting effect to the people INSIDE the bunker. The bunkers are not invulerable so don't expect to hide in the bunker for total safety. I believe they are trying to simulate penetration by the artillary shells to the bunker, hence killing all occupants. An "air strike" can't penetrate the bunker. See smoke, run for cover. If you spawn and your bunker is being hit by artillary, get out of there while you have 3 seconds of invulnerability after you spawn. Head back onto the beach and go through the wall breach if you keep getting killed by panzers, artillary and air strikes. Yes it is frustrating but think your way out of it and go another route.----------------------------------

4.) why venom bullets are so damn powerful. two of those bullets will kill you. youd think that they'd make the bullet "ass-kicking" power wouldnt be so high because of the high fire-rate. ..............

Yes, venoms are vicious. Most likely, more than just 2 bullets are killing you. The guy firing it is most likely aiming for your head which makes it more effective. My suggestion is to be a venom soldier to see how hard it really is. There's some people who have mastered it and I can respect that. I suck with one, personally. I hate the things and it seems to me like venom soldiers are harder to kill as well. Venoms are horribly inaccurate. Bullets fly everywhere with them, so it almost has a shot gun effect. \\\\\\\\\\\\\

In summary: If RTCW was easy to master, it wouldn't be much fun. Anyone could play for their first time and master it if it was too easy. I've been playing a year, I'm pretty GOOD and I get stomped all the time. There's always someone better than you. (and ME!)

Yes venoms and even a few panzers do add to thew game chalenge but in OLTL games the venoms dominate by far, is this fair? (Of course panzers are either disabled or kicked) Every single OLTL game where venoms were involved the venoms were the determining factor of which team would win. In normal games sure no sweat, but in OLTL games they should be banned :agreed: :beer:

yea some of those things annoy me too {I orginally thought the bunker one was a cheat lol} but crouching during a fire fight at times that seems bad becuase by the time you get down and close your dead

plus for the venoms they should not have even been in MP i think, they should of had the paratrooper gun or something but not a gun that shoots off like 5 or so bullets a second and i dont think they aim for the head unless a pro is handing it, most of the time its boom boom boom and your wounded

and fleder maus, i know the accuracy thing about the thompsons and mp40s (about how the accuracy decreases the more you shoot). i have utilized that hint alot and SO HAVE OTHER PEOPLE. hehe, its what makes the game so much fun, everyone is getting better along with you.

:rolleyes:

I just want to toss in my two cents. I personally don't like the fact that some servers have panzers turned off or worse kick people who use them(even though it there right to do so) I will leave if its a server like that. And saying you should take them off OLTL servers is kind of...umm...well dumb. In real war do soilders get to respawn ever 10 secs? Or since when they die, there done...so the enemy can't use rocket launchers? hmmmm. i like the pure version of the game. and really hate whiners. remember this is a war game. WAR is hard. Find a way to stay alive. let the other guys who don't think get wasted first and then kill the guys who killed them.

I have been playing rtcw for almost a year now and i still love panzers, flamers and venoms. in the right hands they are VERY hard to get around. and for the hundreds of novices, its a way to even the odds of their skill level. anyway my soap box is gettin tipsy..so i am spent.
