  1. COOP PvP ?

    Could we try playing COOP with players + bots on both sides? Some arguments for it: - Easier to seed maps with low pop - you get some bots to help you out. - Get to play Opfor. - Get to play more maps, which are very boring with bots on 1 side: Beirut, Saareemaa, Burning Sands etc - Harder difficulty - you don't know if enemy is a bot or human. - In general an interesting change to break up years of the same pattern. Veteran players know exactly what bots will do. - Other side gets to use area attack / deployables / smoke.

    This is from a year ago.
  3. Server Issues (Fly South Bug FIXED!)

    Can you crash the server if you are the only one on it? If the bug was related the number of players online, then I think this myth of VG being the only COOP server that crashes is because we always have the most people online.
  4. Server Issues (Fly South Bug FIXED!)

    I did that in old BF2 with Python modding. It killed a player within a certain box area. Don't think the same is possible in PR. Also, killing the player doesn't do it - it's the vehicle that crashes the server. I once realized I won't make it and will fly sotuhbound, so I quickly suicided, and the F16 on Bijar still crashed it.
  5. Server Issues (Fly South Bug FIXED!)

    Can we resign people from CAS if we know that they are notorious for flying south and crashing? It's probably a worse disruption to the server than people TKing in main.

  7. How can I be an effective Squad Leader?

    1. Communicate. You must have a mic and be able to communicate with everyone effectively (not just your squad, but commander and other squads). 2. Before you can be an effective first-in-command, you need to learn how to be second-in-command. Help your Squad Leader - call out targets / directions / battlefield situation / where to find ammo / medic. SQL wants everyone in a vehicle? Help him get there by calling each squad member's attention to go. If SQL gives you a task, be competent in carrying it out without hand holding. 3. Know your squad - everyone's name, what kit they have, do you have medics with you, AR, LAT, Breacher, do they need medic / ammo / support, do they have a mic, if they don't - can they at least listen to orders. 4. Know your battlefield - where is the enemy, what is the next flag, should you attack or defend (its good to defend sometimes to let other squads attack), where is nearest repair / ammo / vehicle / medic / FoB. Call out any targets with directions where to find them, help medics find wounded by knowing your men's position, don't call TRANS / vehicles to dangerous spots. 5. Tell your squad early and often what the plan is - puts everyone on the same page, so they don't wander off or do something against your interests. For example: "When we cap this flag, I will call TRANS heli to take us to Bravo. Make sure you have ammo before we leave." or "We're going to defend this flag until Squad 1 neutralizes next flag."

  9. So you want to become an airline pilot?

    This guy has a really nicely explained videos for people curious about airline pilot stuff. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwpHKudUkP5tNgmMdexB3ow I have a question for CNJ: In your experience, what was the hardest airport to approach and land at, and why?

  11. Are bots too easy?

    Spartanish is right. The spawn patterns have changed few months ago. It used to be the case that bots would spawn on the flags you are currently taking. Now they barely do.

  13. Are bots too easy?

    I seems for a couple of months now, the bots are on a significantly lower difficulty. We find ourselves easily completing maps, which I remember were much harder, even with more people. Spawning seems to be much lower in flags that are being currently taken. It used to be the case that Sbeneh Std or Khamisiyah, it would be very difficult to take South city or Chemical, because of bots constantly spawning. Charlie on Sbeneh used to be impossible. Now I managed to complete these maps with 20 people. It doesn't even seem like bots spawn in the base, because sometimes the tank column never comes. Muttrah Lrg used to be very difficult with less than 20 people, because enemy would Blitzkrieg all the way to North City. Now we can finish Muttrah with 10 people, because we cap West City before enemies even get there. Jets used to drop bombs, now they only use cannon and sometimes rockets. TOWs and AA mounts would shoot very quickly and accurately. Bots still seem quite accurate with small arms fire, especially in forest maps, and RPG are still quite prevalent. While this is fine for late nights and mornings with low population, we now really struggle to find any challenging maps. Unless we play Vietnam 24/7. Even that isn't guaranteed. I remember playing Barracuda ALT for 3 hours 1 round to get through Swamp and Supplies. Now I can't remember last time it took us more than 1 hour to complete this layer.

    No issue with the map this morning.
