  1. I totally agree. How are new players going to enjoy a game where you have to wait nearly 10 minutes for another game. Only having 2 spawns takes the fun out of the game. However, if you look you can often find servers set with ulimited spawns. Public servers should have more spawns or less time per round.
  2. Nah... my favorite mission is Mayday! Mayday! Night vision and no stupid AI elLOCOmutha... some tips for ya in deathmatch play:- When you spawn always, always, always check your back. Use your 3 second invunerability to clear your immediate area. Movement noise, gun fire, muzzle flash and tracer bullets give away your position. So always watch your back or move position. Listen for the enemy and look for their shadows on the ground. Night vision can be useful on all maps - I have it bound to one of my spare mouse buttons. Learn to move left or right when shooting. This is why some find me hard to kill cause I dont stand still Trying all the weapons is fun. However, if I want to win a round, I always end up going back to a SCAR H/scope/silencer, can't recommend this weapon enough. Also, I find the M8/scope/silencer good, especially on the night map. Though weapon choice is personal preference. Hope that helps. Good luck.
  3. Did you play the [Ghost Recon]? Alot of the people who played the original game were very disappointed by GRAW. I didn't play the original game, so had no prior expectations. I like this game, but am fortunate to have a computer capable of runnning the game well. Singe player is very challenging, even frustrating, compared to many of the other games I have played. But the idea of a tactical shooter is to make you think and not run-n-gun. Multiplayer - the game, out of the box, only has domination and coop modes. Neither of which appealed to me personally. However, patch 1.20 has added 3 new deathmatch maps and one of them requires night vision which I think is so cool. A new patch is currently being tested which contains Team Death Match and Hamburger Hill modes. Reports from beta testers are very very positive. It's is just a pity that the game was not complete when released it may have gotten more favorable press reviews.
  4. Blended metal bullets Fascinating stuff. A 5.56mm armor peircing bullet that fragments on contact with soft tissue. Gotta be against the Geneva Convention
  5. The Geneva Convention (and what I consider common sense) indicate that the intention of combat should be to wound, not kill. This serves two purposes; the minimizing of fatality, and the removal of more troops from the field of combat. A dead soldier doesn't need a medic and two buddies to carry off out of the field. A wounded one does. One good hit with a non-mushrooming round, and you've created an injury that will require more than the injured person's attention. Same hit with a hollowpoint, and you've created enemy fertilizer. One down, many more to go. At least, that's the principle behind it. Victory through attrition, not death. That principal may work fine agains conventional army forces. However, it does not work too well against the doped up fanatics in the middle-east. If you shoot someone holding a rocket launcher you definatley do not want them getting up again, as there is opium in their system and they cant feel pain. It is more likely to be western military medical personel and resources used to treat wounded enemies. Reports on the internet suggest that American troops are asking to be issued with old M1911 .45 cal hand guns and 7.62 M14 rifles.
  6. I understand what TDM is (Team Death Match). Basically the same as counter strike - 2 teams fight to the death - hence the name. I have never played Hamberger Hill. My guess is that 2 teams figth for the control of one area. Howerver, will this not turn into a big camp fest? Guess I'll find out soon enough. Lots of 1.21hh/tdm servers sightings
  7. Okay, you're an [GR] player and you're looking at it from that perspective. This is good news for you and others like you. What is your honest assessment of the effect the patch will have on non-[GR] players that currently like GRAW such as myself? ...ditto... I hope they dont ruin this great game I already like it
  8. I have a dual core processor and I get accused of cheating all the time ...but I have run the AMD dual core software patch The only problem I have is with my mouse speed occasionally doubling. Thought, it works fine when I restart the game.
  9. As GRAW is a game set in the future, any bullpup design would be using forward ejection - current example F2000 Or maybe caseless ammo as with the MR-C.
  10. is that nice or what Would be cool to see the HK416 in the game. Speeking of advanced weapons: apparently more and more modern guns are using the bullpup design. This design is supposed to be better suited to modern urban warfare. Would be nice to see a gun based around an AUG, SA80 or TAR-21. Maybe even chambered for a 6.8mm round which may be NATO's next choice of caliber. BTW we are not allowed real guns here. So I have no idea what I am talking about, so be nice.
  11. The speed hacker did seem to struggle on Suburbs. It was probably all a green blur to him However, he did manage to win one round in Hollow. Hmmm.... moderator deleted a word that we Irish substitute for a swear word which uses the same letters as French Connection UK. Has he never seen Father Ted the comedy??? Father Jack uses the word all the time. The word I used is not even considered rude here Rhyms with Becker and begins with an F Wonder how much of this is going to get censored? Big Brother is watching me
  12. There was a speed hack being used by a player on the Euro 4 server tonight. Everybody spotted it. One of the players was moving so fast he was nearly impossible to shoot. I suggested we should report him and get his CD KEY banned (is this possible?). He said he has a CD KEY generator anyway. What a complete w****r! I would have liked a KICKVOTE option. However, as usual, I got accused of cheating just because my score was 25-4. My accuser told me that this score was impossible I would rather play against a hacker (nailed the ###### twice) than get kicked simply because I play too much I remember in Battlefield 2 the players all voted to kick a server administrator/player But he was using the Hotel expliot in the Kirkland map MODERATOR EDIT: Do not bypass the swear filter. edited by: zjj
  13. I hope when/if the replays come, or when the deathcam comes, that people with inferior sound realize just how accurate 3D sound has become. I've heard people with Audigy 1's and 2's and the old NVidia Soundstorm say they understand how good 3D sound is, and I'm here to tell you, until you have an X-Fi, no, you don't. OK... I admit it... X-Fi Fatality sound card and Medusa 5.1 headphones = sound wall hack As I do exactly the same as you 2 guys. You have to follow the sounds by pointing in that direction which will look like a wall hack. People moving, bushes russeling, cans being kicked, grenade laucnhers, guns being loaded and fired, Rick O'Shea's ... I hear it all... and can even tell wether the sound is in front or behind me
  14. I'm not saying that there are no hackers, but... The words cheater and hacker are over used in this game. Hopefully the new kill/death cam will help cut some of the confusion out. Almost everyday I get called a cheater or hacker. Even members of a CS:S clan started a thread on their forum accusing me of cheating. After I went to a couple of their lan partys, they realized I dont cheat and asked me to join the clan ...and GRAW is easy compared to playing on a TWL clan league. (try CS:S for cheaters and hackers galore) There are only 3 deathmatch maps and I play the game every day. Alot of this game is practice and skill, but a big part of it is luck too. Sometimes you get a run of good clear spawns. Other times you keep spawning in the middle of fire fights. I dont cheat I just play too much. Being called a cheater or hacker is a really a big compliment - when you dont...! BTW my best KD ratio was 17-0 on the Industrial map.
  15. ...but when you die in CS you have to sit and watch, to the end of the round. Where is the fun in that? ... also got fed up with running round a corner in CS:S then getting killed a second later. Also, shooting someone several times then getting killed by that person a second later. Never mind the players that can consistently headshot you halfway across a map with a handgun If you play CS:S you will see what I mean. I used to play CS:S a lot. Joined a clan... then some of the clan members started doing funny sh!t. Still play it occasionally, but still get fed up sitting doing nothing when I get killed.
  16. This thread has been throughly hijacked. Oh well, if you can't beat 'em join 'em. No, I never played [GR]. Though, I do play a lot of GRAW. I have tried - as suggested - lowering video setting and I honestly dont see any difference in the level of detail. And there isn't an option to change detail that there is in some games. However, I do find it harder to see opponents with low video settings With with all video settings high, everything is crisper, including the player models. For me, this makes other players easier to spot.
  17. Was just trying to play on the UBI CHI deathmatch server. For some reason the mouse speed seemed to double. Did anyone else notice this? It has happened to me a couple of times now. The UBI EU servers that I normally play on are fine.
  18. What are you talking about? I fail to see the relation between video settings and skill. Do you mean the FPS goes down and because of this the game is harder to play and your kill ratio goes down??? ... cause I don't think there is anything wrong with my skill and I play with all setting on high. Got my best ever kill ratio on an UBI server Industrial map today 17-0.
  19. This tip didn't work for me on my 7800gtx, 2gb, XFi Fatality sound, AMD4400 dual core machine. The game just looks better with all setting on high. Maybe my computer is why people think I'm hacking Another tip - look out for opponent shadows - especially important on the Hollow map. And remember, good players will be looking for your shadow.
  20. Please post any useful tips you can think of for Deathmatch. Some people think I am cheating, but I just play too much, so here goes.... Use your night vision - press N. I have night vision set on one of my mouse buttons and use it on all the maps not just Suburbs. It's easy to switch it on and off when needed. When you spawn ALWAYS do a complete turn, because there is often someone BEHIND YOU. If someone spawns near you HIDE they are usually invincible for about 3 seconds. Head shots work for an instant win, if you have the time and the skill. I usually just aim for the body incase they do the crouch/slide thing = instant head shot All guns fire tracers making them easy to locate. If you shoot, you have likely given away your position. Scan for targets and watch your back. Listen carefully, if you do, you can often hear an opponent moving about and gunfire is easy to locate. I have a good headset for this. Personally, I always use a scope and silencer on my weapon. The need for a scope is obvious. The silencer cuts down on muzzle flash and a silenced gun is harder to hear and locate. Weapon choice is personal preference. There is another thread discussing this. However, if you are a beginner avoid the MR-C. It does not work well against opponents wearing body armour even if it is really cool.
  21. That's maybe because they got a more complete game. Correct me if I am wrong - XBOX GRAW has more maps, modes, weapons and even different uniforms to chose from. While the PC version is quite limited. When I first got the PC game, I played through the single player, played a little bit of CoOp and Domination then stopped playing after about one week. Then i noticed there was a new patch which included deathmatch. NOW I am enjoying the game and play it regularly.
  22. ROFL Funny but true. I usually have time to look around and shoot someone hitting me with an MR-C No point in having 50 in the mag if it takes half that to stop a target.
