    Yar, it's the people who use the CG at the range the SMG was intended for that get most annoying. I prefer the RPG 7, since you can get some pretty nifty lob shots going on once you have a feel for the drop. I used to run with the CG but anymore I only bust it out to counter the CGspam of others. That and I've got all my engineer unlocks.

    So the game has seen some patches then? I think I might come back and try to play!

    What weapons are people bitching about now and what weapons will get me banned if I use them. :P

    Well, looks like I can play this again. For the longest time the updater has simply refused to work, and today as I was researching how to fix Mass Effect 2's Cerberus Network not connecting I discovered what is apparently a catch-all fix for all EA online games.

    Just gotta download a bunch of patches and then I'm off to shooting things with my lovely Carl Gustav again.

    edit: Well I'm delighted to see the server browser is still suffering from a severe case of balls.

    Meh I rock explosives Mk2 with the CG.

    Well really most times I'm running it as engy for the CG or RPG, to hopefully kill the pack of engies repairing the tank.

    Then again I don't use either as a shotgun.

    See if you're trying to kill the engies as well it's much better to just have your Recons calling in Mortar Strikes when the tanks are being repaired. On maps like Valparaiso, I usually like having me or someone else C4ing the Bradleys.

    My favorite moment last night when me and some other PAer on the attacking team tried to take the lighthouse. He was a recon and I was an assault, and thanks to his motion mines and my resupplying of said motion mines, we knew there was a guy somewhere in there. So we starting moving up the stairs, checking out each floor one by one. Right before we get to the top, the guy drops off the radar. "Where'd he go?", I said. He'd stopped moving, obviously

    After waiting a few moments, we finally made our move, only I'm not sure entirely what happened next. There was an explosion, which made me back off, and a few beats later the enemy recon dropped down to the stairs and my buddy was dead. I in turn shot the guy in the face, and the lighthouse was ours.

    A sniper in the lighthouse was killing our mans repeatedly, and no one was taking care of him, so eventually a medic and I (assault) worked our way over there and cleared it floor by floor, like you say. There were two snipers, and we killed one on the staircase. Took his mines, tossed them, found another guy higher up, but he had paradropped onto the roof and tossing grenades up through the opening wasn't working. Then the mines went silent and we tossed a few more grenades to no avail. The medic started down the stairs and I leaped out the back balcony, parachuting to the base. Sure enough, ten feet away on the walkway on defense side of the lighthouse, that damn ghillie suit crouched with an M95.

    Knifing that dude in the back was the best.

    My least favorite moment was when I cut through a door only to find a guy inside crouching in a corner aiming a CG at the entrance.

    I was that sniper. The dude had a VSS and was just standing there waiting for me to pop my head out.

    My favorite part about last night was getting ACE pin on the same map because I was the only one pushing the mcoms. Granted I ended up just c4ing half of them, but it was so worth it.

    I am glad Slad started banning those silly CG spamming geese after they started mouthing off in the chat. I regularly ask people to cool it with the over use of the CG, if I am playing. When the only thing that kills me on a map is the CG, we have a problem. The first person to go had been camping one spot with nothing but the GC and a few ammo boxes for quite some time. Enough was enough.

    That is not entirely true...I never did say that the CG wasn't entirely OP prior the patch. I just found my reasons for using it when other stuff drove me nuts, and that currently yeah, it's kind of pointless now to bitch about it.

    That said, all of my M60 kills are post nerf! It's the only gun I use when I play medic, because I suck using LMG's. I think my current fav is the M16, it just clicks well with me. Problem is lack of ressing and healing and you know, important stuff.

    I always find that the M16 doesn't do enough damage. I like toughing it out with the AUG or M416. All it takes to be good with the auto AR's is smart tap/burst firing.

    The rush version will be awesome.

    The Conquest version is ruined by the jackasses.

    Also while I'm on the subject of maps.

    Isla Innocentes needs the following changes:
    1) Change sections 1 and 3:
    Section1-Remove useless fucking sniper hill next to the attacking spawn, and make it so defenders can't mortar the attacking spawn.
    Section3- that fucking hill
    or
    2)scrap the map entirely.
    It is awful and encourages the very worst in the people who play it.

    I wish the game had better stat tracking. I swear my K/D always takes a dip when I play Isla Inocentes. Though it is a nice change of scenery from the usual snow/desert/jungle rotation that Arica Harbour, Valparaiso and Port Valdez/Nelson Bay present, I find it very hard to be effective in the first and last points. Both of them are all-or-nothing efforts. You either have a coordinated team who is able to take both MCOMs or a team that is more or less stonewalled.

    I can get away with ninja MCOM arms on Valparaiso or even Port Valdez. Not so on those maps.

    Isla Inocentes is always either a meatgrinder on the first island, or a total steamroll. Very, very rarely have I seen the defense turn it around after losing the first set of MComs, except, like Finnith said, at the very end. That very end set, though, is brutal. The attackers almost always pitch their tents on that hill with their sniper rifles and CGs, and the defenders run around the back of the base, shooting back with sniper rifles and CGs, and it goes on like that for a very long time.

    ...man what? I didn't even USE the m60 until post nerf, I rarely played medic...and I don't even have a plat now, so I have no idea what your talking about. If you mean the CG, then yeah, I platted that fast. Also, lay off the attitude. My views on BC2 are the same as every other BF, which I've played since the first. Kick ass and win, and be as much of a vehicle whore as possible. There's a million ways to cheese in this game, and regardless of what's more OP than anything else, I guarantee if it isn't you then some other mother fucker will shoot you a million other ways from half a mile off. I still don't get this attitude of 'let's all use completely even weapons and run up to each other so it's fair and pew pew'. Every other ass will shoot you from a bush or stab you in the back. It's all good in WAR. Let's bitch about exploiters or hackers, folks who really break the game, how about that?

    Still, without some new maps or perks this game might fade fast, I hope DICE puts some more work into it but I'm not holding my breath, their probably all assigned to BF3.

Infantry wise all your kills come from the CG and M203 and your reasoning as you posted above is just nonsense when PA people are trying to run a friendly server.

    You are just a horrible, despicable person. Based on the stats and the things you say, of course, so its nothing personal.

    Been playing for awhile now, and I certainly didn't see people fleeing the server because of me when I did. I also didn't overly abuse the CG on the Dome, I mostly saved that for *other* servers. I'm just as friendly as the next guy when it comes to shooting people, and I normally respect the weapon hate, even if (post patch) it's slightly irrational. Mostly I've been medic/assault of late whenever I'm on the dome. I can handle despicable in a game where your supposed to kill everyone else, as long as it's in the game and not an exploit or just complete ass hattery. I'm looking at you, base rapers. >,>
