  1. Video was taken from inside a car and that is a reflection on the windscreen. Pulse Jet?
  2. Welcome aboard! See you on the battlefield.
  3. happy to see you back on the server Fumo!
  4. What Kave said mate. Its cool to put down emplacements to stop back capping. Wrong to put them down blocking enemy advance from main, etc. I will say that some SL's put down so many emplacements pushing what I would call excessive, where it limits friendly movement. Mutt map is a good example. It sometimes get to the point where APC's must travel dangerous routes for re-supply/repair.
  5. The only useful task the commander should do other than the occasional arty. Well said keed. Qiezi, you played the role of commander on canyons a few days ago, removed a FOB that was later needed at a critical juncture in the game. I had placed the FOB early in the game because from my experience, the numbers we had on the server it would be needed. My prediction was correct and we struggled while you were barking panic orders which were largely ignored. I don't believe you have developed the skills, knowledge, or earned the respect of the player base to effectively play the role of commander. Don't feel bad, I have not developed the skills or earned the respect of the player base either, and I surely wouldn't expect them to take commands from me. Play infantry dude. Learn to play it well and prove your worth, earn the respect, and develop the skills first.
  6. It all comes down to the pilot. A good example of why I dislike the practice was demonstrated on Pav last night. The Harrier was hovering inside the sub pen, yes INSIDE, shooting enemy infantry while friendlies were trying to deal with armor outside.
  7. I am not a fan of hovering harriers, especially close to the ground. The biggest reason is the noise, can't hear a bloody thing. We tell trans not to hover for the very same reason. Secondly, it looks like kill farming to me. Shooting infantry, light armor is IMO not the intend task/use for harriers. I believe all CAS should focus on targets infantry has a difficult time dealing with. Tanks, emplacements and the like.

    Hi All

    Welcome! You have come to the right place. Heaps of support from a great bunch of people.
  9. I for one would love greater diversity in the maps played. Seems maps are selected for asset availability meaning the map has the asset the decision makes want to play simply because they are winnable. For me, a walk through maps is not a lot of fun, just repeating the same strategy over and over again. So bring it on, lets play the harder ones!!
  10. For me, there is nothing more frustrating than someone making a squad and not leading it. I think not having a mic in this game is a disadvantage to the player whom doesn't have one and every other member on the team with a few exceptions. There are a handful of no mic people who are among our strongest players. I think admins should encourage players without mic's to not lead. Set up the server to regularly display a message about the importance of having a microphone similar to the one that thanks people for playing on the VG server.
  11. I am just starting to get my head around the complexity of the game. For me, less complexity would be great!
  12. I'm in but being very new to the game I'll need heaps of help and instruction.
