I joined late last night and did horrible, the transition from B:BC2 to MW2 can be frustrating. I will have to warm up a bit before I jump right in next time.

I couldn't stay up any later than 12:45 am, so I quietly just left after you got shifted to another room and our party got dumped to the party screen, Combat.

Showed up for an hour and a half or so, and it was fun. A nice change from my friends that I usually play with, since they seem to go for kills more than the objective. Also enjoyed not being criticized for doing terribly, since I did. :)


I agree. I usually don't do too well either and its a friendly environment to play in. I never do well in objective games since mostly play free for all.


There's usually a good bit of comedy to be had. I don't think we've ever really gotten too crazy except when everybody was on their game and we had like serious competition in front of us. The most you'll hear from me is 'Don't bunch up!' or 'Watch me die' or 'I'm going to do something stupid, don't follow me' followed by me dying. When I'm fully warmed up and on a roll, I'll try to motivate guys a little but there is no expectation or orders issued, I like it when my team feels the right kind of pressure that equates to pride vs necessity.

Now Kefka on the other hand will start a nuke push and forget to tell us because he's been an Elf lord bikini-wearing car washer flower-selling shemale that attracted the whole enemy team to his location so he can shimmy for them. But that's what World of Warcraft has done to him and is nobody elses fault. :lol:

I apologize for the coughing you guys were hearing.

Dude... I didn't hear you over my crunching on cheetos.

Yeah, if kefka had mentioned the "going for a nuke" then we probably would not have pushed for the middle of the map.

Have anyone ran up on those lvl 70 10th prestige hackers yet, cause it would be funny to own them every time.

The C4 and Rocket multi-kill were pretty good.

BTW - thanks for everyone letting me know I sounded better last night. I'll have to see what my 3-year old played with on my slim. He's into playing with the remotes, so he could've gotten into the voice settings. I know there have been a number of times when I have turned on the TV to find out he has it in SAP - which would be okay if I was fluent in Spanish. :)

It's not often I do that good, but as I keep saying, every once in a while I do something so stupid it turns out spectacular. It really helped that 4 out of 6 were snipers who relied on that opening time when they can snipe across the map from that hill in the bushes. I didn't realize I had somebody spectating me until whomever it was relayed the particulars about how I circled around the jeep, stabbed two guys and then knifed the sniper that was inside an open window. I did hear Kefka go "Unstoppable!", "Holy Sh!t!" and few other choice words as I'm running around like a mad man. It was nice getting the Star Player and Dronekiller challenges done in the same match though :D

Edit to add: Most of those were knife kills, I believe about 8 or 9 of them.

I thought it was funny when we played the last (private) match and Kefka managed to knife you AFTER you successfully disarmed the bomb. Timing is everything. Of course, I might have been able to help you if I wasn't still trying to fight the recoil in the ACR (still trying it out - and hating it). Then again, what do I expect for only playing twice in the last couple of weeks? I need to knock some rust off...and remember to slowly empty my rifle...or go back to the AUG until I can remember.

Was it me or were we getting either all snipers or noob tubers all night in GW last night?

Starting this Wednesday, I'll be hosting a CAG competiion. I'll be giving away 2, $10 PSN cards. The contest will end the game night before the release of the map packs.

The categories will be:

1. Best kill(s). Such as Hito's fail javelin, which missed the harrier, but it scored him a triple kill when it landed. Or if you got a 5+ explosion/spray kill.

2. Best game. Not necessarily a very high KD, but a collection of good plays in 1 game. Such as Mad's S&D game, last night. He didn't have any insane kills, but how he killed the whole team and how he knifed 3 guys back-to-back... Etc....

-----

It's up to you guys if the entries should only be counted during game nights, or anytime I'm on.

I may be on a little earlier....depends when my monster goes to bed.

I am wondering several things....why am I trying to play with the ACR - besides getting the bonus points? Much better with SCAR and AUG. Also, I suck at terminal in a free-4-all...although it does help me warming up.

My nigh in free-4-all....scrapyard 13k-15d, afgan 15-4 (think I spawn on the other side of the map every time I died), terminal 3-10, underpass 18-10 (after starting 0-6)...last game was 2 of us running around and camping snipers for everyone else....they hated me turning the tables and then my predator & precision air strike all in the 2 minutes. :)

One question for Madder, Kefka, and anyone else playing a lot of MP - what are your favorite equipment/perk loadouts?

I mean, I have
1. scar/whatever secondary with marathon pro, lightweight pro, and commando pro for CTF runs
2. scar or aug w/silencer & javalin with scavenger pro (possibly marathon or OMA depending upon game type), cold blooded (no pro yet), and ninja pro for stealth
3. the pinnapple express (scar w/grenades, thumper and danger close) load for those who choose to play that (or if we get wasteland in GW)

Actually been running without the 3rd one most of the time recently, but I will resort to the grenadier class if need be.

I'm assuming your monster is your mother?

ACR w/ ACOG is my go-to long range weapon because I hate sniping in this game.

I'm not going to say my custom class names because they're all named after women or anime females but I run...

1. M4A1 w/ RDS or Holo + SPAS | C4 on objective based levels (thanks to NoKill for showing me the way) and Semtex for TDM/FFA | SoH/Scavenger + Stopping Power + Commando | KSC#1 + KSC#3 (depending on map)
2. UMP45 w/ Silencer + SPAS | Semtex | Marathon + Hardline + Ninja | KSC#1 + KSC#2
3. SCAR w/ Grenade Launcher | Claymore | OMA + Danger Close + Commando | KSC#1
4. ACR w/ ACOG + SPAS | C4/Semtex | Scavenger + Stopping Power + Ninja | KSC#1 + KSC#3 (depending on map)
5. Mini-Uzi w/ Silencer + SPAS | Semtex | Marathon + Lightweight + Ninja | KSC#2
6. Any weapon to level + Stinger | Semtex | Marathon + Cold Blooded + Ninja

Killstreak Combo #1: Predator-Harrier-AC130/Chopper Gunner
Killstreak Combo #2: Predator-Harrier-Pave Low
Killstreak Combo #3: Harrier-AC130/Chopper Gunner-Nuke
--I'll ocassionally throw in EAD.

Nearing the 2nd Prestige now and after first deciding I wouldn't do it again, I think I will because the 1st Prestige icon is ugly as all hell.

Oh no, I'm sure I'm older than most playing.....my being away for a couple of years and the time constraints of raising a kid take a toll on your gaming time/ability.

My monster is 3 and he has full operational knowledge of all the remotes (TV & cable) and the PS3 controllers. Hence, he goes down and I have some free time. If he gives wifey a hard time, I have to play Corporal Punishment (j/k)....however I am forced to play "bad" cop. So, if I suddenly disappear, it is probably the calling of the 3 year old.

To let you know what I am up against, this is the boy who told me we never play the "car" game (Burnout Paradise) 20 minutes after him and I just played for an hour. A kid after my heart. He has also labeled Demon's Souls as "the spooky game" - which is probably appropriate from his vantage point.

I do my best to avoid letting him see me play the FPS games and stuff like GTA.

I concur with needing stopping power with the ACR...especially after running with the SCAR.

Actually been running without the 3rd one most of the time recently, but I will resort to the grenadier class if need be.


My play style depends on my opponents somewhat. Against Kefka, Hito and high quality twitch players, I rock usually my runner class. If I'm up against a team of noob tubers, I swap to my noob tube/rocket class. If I'm playing Demo on the Defense side or defending the flag I pick my "slower" submachine gun class. Against snipers I'll switch to a sniper class or I'll straight up use a runner class to flank them(which was seen with great success).

My current class set ups are:
Assault = TAR W/GL and AT4. Scavenger, Danger Close & not sure what perk 3 is. C4 + flashbangs.

Runner = UMP w/Extended mags, Stinger/SPAS w/grip. Marathon, Lightweight & Ninja/Sitrep. C4 + flashbangs.

Defensive submachine gun = UMP/P90 FMJ + Extended mags or Silencer for the P90, SPAS w/Grip(+Extended mags when I get more SPAS kills) . Bling, Stopping Power & Ninja all at Pro. C4 + flashbangs. This class is very dirty with a P90, I thoroughly enjoy it because of the high mag capacity.

Two different snipers but similar load outs. Scavenger, Cold Blooded/Stopping Power & Ninja/Sitrep. Any rifle with FMJ, G18 w/silencer or SPAS w/Grip. C4/frags/semtex/claymore + flashbangs.

Putting Lightweight Pro onto an Assault rifle class worked really well for me. I liked using TAR + FMJ/Silencer and SPAS w/Grip. Scavenger, Lightweight, Ninja/Sitrep/Steady Aim.

I'm not very good with the twitch killing like Kefka or Hito, so I have to adapt and use each class to exploit their usual vulnerabilities. Twitch killers usually don't move out in the open or run much, they "progress" through areas until they're satisfied and move on. All you can do is out think, out maneuver and get off a lucky shot and then you still have the other 5 players to deal with. Try to give yourself the big picture because once these guys attract attention, they're doing it to draw you out, usually you can take out their teammates before you have a shot of taking out a twitch killer.

FFA = twitch training ground. In case it needed to be mentioned.

I usually favor speed over firepower but sometimes no matter how fast you are, sometimes you're just rushing to die by maintaining that pace.

But with so many loadouts and classes and perk choices and modes and different loadouts for different modes and, christ, even your connection speed matters; and that's all before you even start playing! So I spend 45 minutes trying to create some manageable classes, get into a game, try to move around like there's death lurking around every corner, spot someone, move in and :twoguns::twoguns::twoguns: dead, dead, dead.

My go to gun is for sure the AK-47. If you have horrible aim & can't tolerate high recoil guns, it is absolutely not for you.

My ultimate class setup is:

AK-47 with a silencer.
Rangers akimbo
C4
Smoke (a must have for demo, and CTF to some extent.)
Sleight of Hand
Stopping Power (really need it to make up for the long range shots with a silencer)
Ninja PRO (I can not play without it. It is required to get the full effectiveness out of my headphones)

Yeah, best advice I can give you, is to take it slow. Not necessarily camping.

Always stay in closed areas, like never running out in the open, only if it's necessary. If you have trouble staying alive with enemies around you, stay on our side of the map when playing demo/ctf. You'll have teammates backing you, so you'll have a sense of security.

Another good thing to watch for are the white skulls that appear on your screen, above recently killed allies. If you look in the kill log & it says that your teammate was knifed, you then know exactly where he was. I learned this trick from playing a lot of S&D, since silence is everything in that mode.

It is also good to learn the choke points on the map. Like on Rundown, it's a good idea to just stay back on our side and constantly keep switching bridges to watch for enemies to come across. Or on Underpass, there are 3 funnel points that are the only way to get out of your spawn. Use those effectively. Like get a kill or 2, then move onto the next funnel point. Try to not stay at 1 after you have killed 2 people, or they will get smart and pick you off faster than you can see them.

I will be calling out really good spots to alternate between, while I am playing with you guys.

Another cheap tactic to use, is looking at 'their' minimap while watching a killcam. If you go the the menu (where you can see the mini-map), it'll show exactly where their teammates are (your enemies) at the time of you being killed.

-----

With set spawns, offense (spawn controlling) is my way to go. Since I know exactly where they will spawn if I am standing in a certain area. So I will get 2-3 kills on 1 spawn spot, then I will run there and push it to another one and get a few more kills. Once I get my 5 kills for the predator, I will run back to safety to drop it. Which gets me my harrier, which gets me my 11th KSR.

I honestly think the best approach to have to this game, and it's the one I came into this game with since day 1, is just to have fun. I got majorly t-bagged in one Free For All kill cam I was in and the guy was like 'You've got to be pissed!' so I just flipped on my mic and let him know that it was a fun kill cam to watch. He had some style, I haven't seen anybody t-bag a person before they kill them with a throwing knife since. I really should have friended him. I want to say that was right before I started playing with CAG.
