Welcome dogman, I would echo the advice of whodaman as far as what servers to start on. Don't be surprised though by how bad it seems you are doing at first. Just get comfortable with moving and aiming and dodging. And whatever you do.....watch out for the tank named Menotume!!!!! He is to be feared!!

Hey Beenz, Sorry to hear about your negative experiences. I think some of the specialized servers that have very loyal crowds are probably the worst for this sort of thing.....but it still shouldnt happen. Have you tried sending private messages to some of the people who are doing well.....score wis...

I've never heard anyone complain about it either. Personally I think it's fun, just another thing to keep us ole timers interested.

It's somewhat funny to me that this is getting that much discussion. I guess i'm not the only one who procrastinates by reading to the forum. I just think Homer did not choose his words for his sentence very well. It is so hard to "read" into people's real intentions...all we have are the words writ...

Uh Oh sounds like TRB has been scheming up things!!! Look out! I think it sounds like a fun idea. I think random drawing of teams would be interesting. Depending on how many sign up though you might want to do 3 on 3 matches, that could help minimize effects of some of the better players getting dra...

DMP: I think I like your idea, it does seem to make sense, and I think your right in that it might create more activity from newer players. They should be more comfortable taking on a match they know they might lose, as the risk of losing a lot of points for their team is less. It's still a little f...

The Oldest BZ Name I remember

Hey SM, Your list got me racking my brains for old timers, which being an old timer myself is difficult to do at times. You forgot Kono!!! Although, I forget all the aliases he used toward the end there, so maybe one name on your list is his. He's the dude who told me that: "all the hours you play B...

Wings

I agree with phyvo. I use it mostly as a break...for fun just to cruise around and check out the map. It seems weird to me to use it to fight with...unless going against another "winged" tank, or camper of course.

Kelly's Heroes

Hey Gerbil, A great reference.....my "old" friend. Unfortunately, I will guess 92.6% of the young lads here have not seen this movie or have probably heard of it. :? It was good to see you out there playing the other day....I had not come across your tracks in a long time. These days, the only remin...

Hehe, Wow, you 2 have the same opinion on this? Pretty funny!

Thanks Blast. Its funny just this morning there was a new map on there.

Thx Grumbler for offering the same set up. I guess part of the appeal was that his server handled 20 players pretty well. There is some lag but mostly just laggy players. There def. needs to be a lag kick, there is almost always a player on there with lag over 1 sec.!! DS: Yeah I was on there once w...

Maybe we haven't noticed DMP because we are so accustomed to seeing you respawn so much...from suicide or other that its hard to figure out what's going on!!!!!

That's really my tactic, I'm trying to get shot so I hope I respawn in better position.....yeah ....that's it!

Well.....I have to plead stupidity along with BAMF. I cant believe I have never thought of that or noticed it!

Sounds kinda cheap but it would be the luck of the draw as far as your spawn goes....sooo....probably makes sense to try if your desperate.

Great Points KR

All good points KR!! As for the logging back in to gain an advantage...I'm with DMP. If I see someone do it I will first check their lag, make sure it wasnt a lag kick, and then give them a warning. Then next time they get kicked. As for the outnumbered flag capturing, it shouldnt take too much figu...
