Now enter the client who can see ST on a PUBLIC server (through modified radar/drawing OR observer mode), he has a distinct advantage not available to all on the server, which comes from neither experience nor skill at playing the game. This would be a cheat. This is one of the reasons someone call...

Re: How Long Does It Take To Get Good?

Not true. Maybe on servers you play on but in most places I play that isnt true. Maybe there are qualities the leaders have at the servers you play on may be considered "cheaters". I greatly frown upon all these cheating accusations. hehe - I've been playing this game too long. Maybe not ...

Re: How Long Does It Take To Get Good?

For the sake of the noobs who feel it's a long way to the top... Just to clarify: Good = Can keep a positive score Excellent = Can keep in top three or within 10 kills of leader Awesome = Always the leader and when you get to the point of being able to include yourself in the Excellent to Awesome s...

Notice some of their callsigns, "real" people playing on autopilot - and are not the usual bot. Guess what I am getting at is that there are what appears to be individuals signing in, then starting up autopilot and maybe not even hanging around to watch the action. Acts like bots but sligh...

lol, yes I want it that way. Had to go in an mod something to get it that way.

70 to 90 percent of the time I am only using radar - the rest is spent looking up at the player list to see what flag someone has. Seems for the second or two I take my eyes off the radar, I get nailed!
