It didn't even occur to me that English wasn't your native tongue, so you might take my criticism as a compliment. RVS-Valve nails it exactly when he say how poorly native speakers write in this country. They ARE even proud of it at times, which is a mystery to me because it is like being proud of still wearing a diaper. Basic skills, folks.
What I was trying to get across to you, is that you didn't seem to be understanding what is being written at times. It may be because this isn't your native tongue, so I will make more of an effort to be more clear. What I didn't understand is some of your replies in relation to what was written. For example....you write:
SpeelBal wrote:When I say teamkilling is part of a game a refer to the part where someone said: "Because it's not cheating he can do everything he want."
In response to this.....leaving off the end and qualifying part of the sentence. That's all I was trying point out.
B.Schuss wrote:Another very important reason ( most important in my opimion ):
d) It's a game, he can do whatever he wants as long as he is not cheating or intentionally TK'ing.
Well said BTW B.Schuss....I would like to add, or doing many of the things on RMS_Valve's lengthy list.
But, enough on this. My compliments to you for being able to communicate as well as you do in English.
I am loath to explain my tactics as that makes them easier to counter and less effective to me, but let let me share my thinking on the close range and single enemy issue. Let me start of by saying that I tend only to use assault when I am on maps that where I expect to be dealing primarily with enemy infantry and relatively few armored vehicles (Karkand, Sharqui, Mashtuur and sometimes Oman). The funny thing is that when I first started playing the game, I preferred non-city maps. However my son, who is attending a university in another city (he and I use this game as a means to share a little quality time
(he is a Holy-terror plaing this game (check his knife and pistol kills), you can see his stats here http://bf2s.com/player/belcorwyn
), and his LAN buddies prefer city maps. Back on topic....when I am expecting infantry I use the the GL as my primary weapon. I know that this is less than popular, but I have my reasons. As a general rule, when turning a corner, I don't always know what I will find there. It may be multiple bogeys or just a single enemy. If is just a single, I stand a slimmer chance in the encounter if I take the time to switch to the rifle giving him the advantage of plugging rounds into me before I can bring my weapon to bear. I just pull the trigger and hopefully move on. Now you may want to counter with, use the rifle primarily and switch if you need to. Well if the case is muliple enemies, it may again take too long to switch weapons resulting in my quick death...or the moment to catch them all with one round may be gone. Better just just run around with it primary mode where I stand the best chance. I am not sure why you find it annoying when a t00ber misses you and bunnyhops all over the place to reload and misses yet again, I find it hilarious, *BOOM*boing*boing*boing*BOOM*boing*boing*boing*BOOM*, it gives you that much more time to kill him. I used to be guilty of doing this...and have to admit with very little success. This is the time to hop once or twice and pull out the rifle or pistol and try to capitalize on any splash damage. I could go on and on, but want to address bunnyhopping with a little clarity and writing takes time. Let me just say this, I use the t00b with the thought of catching multiple enemies and making long range shots or taking out transport vehicles first (popping a full Vodnik is a special treat), but have no compunction whatsoever taking out a single enemy if the chance presents itself to me. If I come across a sniper capping a flag with only a pistol out, hey, there is a good chance that I will take very little damage if I blow him to kingdom-come. Remember, I am on the dark side of the force.
Now as to bunnyhopping, one of my students gave the "Official Guide to BF2", complete with "game-tester's tips. As far as I can tell, it is sanctioned by EA. Now, I know that does not carry a lot of weight with many of you and the guide isn't really worth spending money on as all the useful "tips" can be gleaned out of it by spending five minutes reading it where it is for sale but it does say a little about the jumping ability ( I know RMS, an awfully long sentence). I don't have it front of me now, but I do remember it saying something to the regard that the jumping ability is not dependant upon the sprint meter. No matter how low it goes you can continue to jump. It does not say specifically to bunnyhop, but it is implied. Now, my point is this, When I am confronted with a situation where I am at a disadvantage, i.e. out of ammo, facing multiple enemies, etc., I would begin some serious evasive manuevers. The game itself does not seem to lend itself to ducking, weaving, playing dead or anything that lends itself to escape or surrender (Now that would an interesting feature if you could "capture" enemies in this game). I am more than open to any suggestions or tips on effective escape techniques that do not involve hopping. I have to say that all the bunnyhopping in the world does not stop a skilled player and I have generally limited success when I do try it, far better to kill you with the GL's first shot and not have to worry about it
Anyway, gotta run.
