I don't see it on the list? if you are new to GU league (as I know you are) the team "The Armoury" would be a good door to knock at. They are "training" new players in match tactics. Got your PM, thank you. I've PM'd their team leader because there isn't a "Join" button, so I'll see what they say. ...

XP Media Center.

I need to buy a new mouse matt, too. I use a crappy ball mouse so if the mouse matt gets a bit wet or anything you're buggered if you want to dodge.

Not doing too bad though, I'm staying in the positive scores a lot now'a'days!

How does one change their mouse speed? I just have an ordinary mouse for the time being, until I get the funding to buy a really good, advanced mouse.

Any teams..

Any teams here willing to take me under their wing? I think I'm getting better. I took out three pros in the Pillbox map before getting skewered myself. I kinda cheated though, I just ran my tank around in circles so they couldn't shoot me and just shot randomly at their radar blips as I was driving...

Yes, a chap named Del brought me into a pillbox map, no jumping etc.. it helped me increase my dodging skills. In public servers you tend to get people who switch to the winning side, quit and rejoin if their scores are bad etc.. I'm assuming such behaviour is forbidden in leagues.

How would a chap go about joining one of these leagues I hear so much about? I hear they have much more law & order than public servers.

This is about honest rating; don't rate yourself low to look humble. I'd say I'm 4-5 on GU servers, 2-3 on ducati, 3-4 on pillbox, and if I pick up any ol' superflag server, I'm 7-8. I wasn't being humble, I'd only been playing for a couple of days, 0/10 seemed a rather fair assessment. Until my sc...

I, too, am rubbish at jumping. I hate jumping, I try to avoid it at all costs because I know... if I jump, I do. I usually just stay firmly on the ground, let them jump and fire a spray of bullets as they come down and hope one of them hits them.

I learnt with the keyboard, but soon switched over to mouse at the advice of many veterans who were kind enough to take me under their wing for a night of Tank Wars 101.

Unfortunately I've been AWOL for weeks now so I've pretty much un-learnt everything I've learnt and starting from scratch again.

Question for people who use the mouse

Hi all, I was getting rather good at the game but I became too busy to play for over a month (new girlfriend) so, I re-suck. :lol-old: Just a quick question, what size do you have the mouse box? I have mine set at 3, which is ideal for me to control & aim my tank.. but not so good for moving quickly...

As a newbie myself, one piece of advice I can give to fellow newbies is... use the radar more than your screen. Go into "Options" -> "GUI Settings" and enlarge the radar screen, enlarge the radar shots, too, so they're easier to see. Keep your eye on the radar 70% of the time, but always remember to...

I'm not saying it's wrong per se, just wondering about the majority opinion. I'll always allow them to spawn, and then I'll open fire. For an average player those few precious seconds should be more than enough for them to prepare themselves for a fair fight, and I like the idea of them appreciating...

Bots

Hi, I've seen bots mentioned a few time, but in my BZFlag, I can't find an option to play with bots anywhere? I thought that'd be really great to practice. A few enemy drones on auto-pilot for me to learn to dodge, dip, duck, dive and dodge as they're robotically spraying me with shells. How do I st...
