  • Where I'm at since my first introduction..

    My story:
    I bought BF2 when it initially came out because it looked like a fun game to play.

    At the time I was on dial up at home so loaded it onto my laptop and would drive 1/2hr one way to get access to ADSL to play with my group.

    A couple of trips like this and I realized it was just DoD with tanks and planes and wasn't worth the effort. I went back to playing DoD and gave my BF2 disks away.

    Along came Red Orchestra and it offered a bit more of what I was looking for..realism and tactical game play but still , it lacked a few things. The major fault IMO was the inability to communicate decently. Even in DoD they introduced icons whenever a player used VOIP so if someone said "follow me" , you could see who said it and follow.RO was a mass of confusion with VOIP so I gave up using it.

    Then , I discover PRM but as I'm still on dial up at the time so it's only a pipe dream!

    Couple of months ago I was finally able to get wireless high speed from across the river valley(not the greatest connection and drops off once in a while but hell,it's better than the 28.8 Kbps DU I had) so I hounded my nephew for my BF2 disks again and installed it , got the PRM mod and was directed to this group for good gaming.

    I've played some BF2 Vanilla with another clan and like all online games , it's more WHO you play with than what you play. Had some fun times over there but still , the game itself is arcadish.Good for some run and gun shoot ups but for the most part , disorganized with little team work.

    Anyway , for the past few days I've been reading numerous sites on playing PRM , watching various BF2 PRM videos on UTube and playing around in SP mode to get the feel of the game , configure my controls etc.

    I'm basically "in training for my first combat assignment"

    I'm gonna prefix my in game name with the clan tag [n00b] so a squad leader won't expect too much of me and , as they're forecasting rain tomorrow , want to try and get on a nd actually play for a few hours.

    Well...back to training. I hear "drop and give me 20" in the background so gotta go..l8tr all.

    You shouldn't feel bad because you're not succeeding. It's far better to feel confident that you have the ability to handle failure

    Good to see you stuck it out in the face of adversity there BeerHunter. I'll recommend to your CO that you get a 72 hour pass for the weekend for some good old fashioned butt-kickery on the servers.
