Rainbow 6 was good, but there's better out there, like Op Flashpoint. Yes, all the games i said were crap require thinking, i've thought, and i've experienced better, but i refuse to give in to the majority (not aimed at you) of gun-nut, sad-act, SAS wannabe brain-boxes. I like being challenged, and making plans, but when theres more bugs in the game than Hitman: Codename 47, i tend to get rather bored, cos i'm tired as FUCK trying to outwit some retarded buggy A.I. that uses a pea-shooter as a rifle, and a railgun as a sidearm, or in the case of Cs, some asshole hacker; and at least i based how much i liked Cs on a full version, after playing for about a month, unlike you who played but a DEMO for how long? not long enough. Still, shoulda been more accurate. besides the hackers, I've tried to play Cs, and it just doesn't like my machine. The HL Engine hates me. TO isn't just about low ping, I've been owned by guys with 300+ ping, and slapped T1 bitches all round the fuckin show. No tactics? Thats just bullshit, JOLT and Gameserver.net servers give everyone a ping of less than 150. So how do you out "twitch" people who are running at the same speed as you? and I'm talking bout clan matches, not Publics in which some people excell, and others do better in wars. TO is a mod, just like Cs, i like TO because it uses the U engine, and therefore the HL engine based Cs, is not worthy in my eyes. and, i shit you not, EVERY single game i've played on Cs has had hackers, every fucking one. 56kers are usually the best out there, protected by lag, and they are dedicated. if a 56ker was so pissed off with their gameplay, they wouldn't bother playing at all. I was better on ISDN than on my 1MB as of now. when was the last time you played, even your DEMO of TO? I played Cs 4 days ago. I'm STILL trying to get better at it, after a year of trialing and upgrade, to no avail. And on top of that, with my latest upgrade, I'm gonna try it again after doing rather well in an internet cafe yesterday. Ya ya, blow me my opinions change, least i'm willing to make compromise and try again. 5/13 on de_dust i own.
Ok, now if Counter-Strike isn't your cup o' freakin tea.... that's cool. But Tac Ops?? I respect Rainbow 6 fans.... they are excellent games that deliver solid action and they actually require thinking and planning, I personally prefer the more immediate action of CS but the Rainbows are nice for change. SoF? Ok... you like the gory stuff... personally though I wouldn't consider SoF to be Team Based or Realistic at all so it kinda turns me off. But Tac Ops?? Dude... Tac Ops blows... hard.. I played a demo once, it looked nice but it's a ping-based game. No skill, no thought, no planning, lowest ping wins... period. And if you say CS is the same I'll fuckin kill you. I'm a 56k man and I still consistently rank in the top 40%. Now some people bitch and moan that they always die as many times as they get a kill. Well guess what? It means you're perfectly average. Not everyone can be of some amazing caliber that you can go 20 and 5... the ODDS are that you're just not that good. Now if I can go 15 and 8... I'm happy... the rare occassion that I go like 20 and 6... I just assume that everyone else on the server blows.
I dunno, maybe you're all about the twitch games.... so yeah, UT and UT2k and all that shit is great for you. But Tac Ops is a twitchers BS excuse trying to pretend that they like strategy too. Every game you said is crap requires thinking... .. just wanted to point that out.
Ugh. i think thats what i mean.
