  • First night back.

    Last night (Feb 9) was my first time playing ArmA since 1.08 was released. Things did not go smoothly....

    -Could not find targets... I remember this game is tough and finding targets is hard so fine. I still got to shoot buildings, tents and lots of trees though. Also very intense when everyone around you starts shooting an you have no idea why.

    -Hard to stay with squad.... If not for that little circle on my squad leader I would have have spent every mission running around lost and alone.

    -Clausaphobic... Riding in bacl of APC with no external views, no magic map to track progress etc...

    -Rusty... This was complicated by wife issues as well though. Had a chance to get airborn in an MH-6 (bird of choice for me) to do some recon and guidance of ground forces. Betweem wrong VOIP channel, getting lost and then jumping out instead of auto-hover I have some serious practice I can get back to my distinguisjed air cav badge again...

    Glad to be back though.

      -Could not find targets... Yeah them Soviet infies are hard to spot sometimes.

      -Hard to stay with squad.... Thats the job of the squadleader tbh. A good squadleader always keeps an eye on his men.

      -Clausaphobic... you never know when they will hit ya !

      -Rusty... After a couple of games youll get the hang of it again :)

          1: Keep your distance
          2: Never fly high
          3: Use the terrain and "hide" behind hills as required
          4: Never fly directly over the target area.

          Just my 2 cents worh

            Mostly just common sense I guess.

                Bring a copilot to do the watching while you do the flying.

                  Welcome back, Toshido. If you need help with anything, I'll try and help (that's if I can help :)). Just takes a while to get back into "the zone", try not to get caught in the front line until you are confident again. :P

                    Last night got caught seperated from the rest of the squad in the park on the perfect utopia (I think) mission.
                    Once it was all said and down I had 8 (i think) kills and was able to get out of there. With the kindest thanks to Fincuan aka clown face (probably misspelled) who came to my rescue as I lay wounded in the grass. Then i ran like a screaming like a schoolgirl out of the park to kill another two hostiles before reforming with my squad.
                    Good times and the game is coming back quick.

                    Now to start leading missions soon.
