So thought I'd make a post on it. Dunno if we are gonna be organised enough to start a clan and with most of ye (I think) over in the states I wouldn't really be a part of it. But I reckon it would be cool to meet up on an quiet server for a match one of these days.

So if you are interested leave your name and a suggestion for date and time to meet up. If someone knows of a nice quiet IRC place to meet up first that would be cool. Any other suggestions work away.

The only problems I have with clans.. is that they always want to play at "9pm, saturday night."

Why not, Sunday night, 7pm, or Monday, 8pm? Why does it need to be the most important day of the week that everyone picks to sit on their computer at home playing computer games?? Why??

I'm good to play M-W.. most of the time.. if it's after 8 or 9.. but I might be under a mild influence..so my reflexes will be prime.. haha

lol - that's nerds for you.

I'd never join a clan - unless it was a humerous one, that wasn't really a clan.

my teamkills are so high because i've normally had a few drinks before I start playing..

when you're a squad leader, people spawn on you.. some guy joined my squad, spawned on me while I was at an enemy base. spawns right in front of me and I lit him up.. funny as hell to me.. he didn't think so though.

Yup, for the obsessed gamer they usually have nothing else to do on a Saturday nite. Now just cos I'm not going out this Saturday relates more to the price of a pint in London, the state of my bank balance and the fact I don't get paid till Tuesday altho I got me a little smokable stuff lying around somewhere if I can find it. Last seen lying under a pile of smelly underwear.

Back on topic I'm not really suggesting a clan, more of just a meet up for a game sometime in the future.

I wouldn't want anyone spawning on me. Specially not a bloke. I'd draw the line at a frog really.

Saturday morning I'm recovering from my late nights on Fridays. Saturday nights, I'm out making a late night. I have Sunday's open to kill people in games. :) 

I'm Eastern time.. but I don't play all that often.. I spend more time drinking in a week than I play in a month.

Well I'm currently off my face drunk. Give me 30 mpre minutes I also intend to be high as well

Typing skills are fairly good for being drunk. haha.

How's your aim though?
October 21, 2005 11:02:03 PM

We'll just use a clan name so we can identify each other. Not to go around taunting people and bein knobs.

As far as organizing. I'm pacific, so I'm still at the office and it's 7PM eastern.

I'll be on tonight most likely though. I veg on fri nights.

I'd be interested. Monday and Tuesday are spoken for so any other night would work. I'm on the East Coast of the US which is GMT -5 hours.

What game? Or did I miss that?

Anyone know how to make a BF2 signature without too much trouble?

I haven't looked yet, but I think they added something in there so you could add your clan tags without too much trouble.

I'm East coast. We never go out until 10-11pm at night, so I have a couple open hours Thursday, Friday, Saturday. Sunday through Wednesday, hours vary, depending what I do.

For the past 6 months I've been going out 6 nights a week.. haha. It's sad. I spent $1,000 in a week recently just going out. Staying in might not be such a bad thing this winter. haha

You know they have a medal for being in a parachute for like 9 or 12 seconds? I want that one.
October 24, 2005 6:14:44 PM

These knobs that fly helicopters above the clouds to create a spawn point piss me off.

It's the role of a good squad leader.. and annoying as hell. haha.

Every squad leader I find always gets into the fire fight and dies right away.. it's like.. you idiot, hold back, let them fight for you.. you're just there to take an objective.. when you get it, get into the fight. Don't go halfway across the map just to die.
October 24, 2005 6:54:06 PM

Right, but what I'm pissed about is the fact that they are taking advantage of the max draw distance. They go high enough so that nobody can see them since no video card renders at that distance.

Yeah, EA hasn't been exactly good on releasing patches for that stuff either.. It'll be another 2-3 months before you see a patch out of them to fix that stuff.
But then again, it also comes down to your team playing as a team to take that helicopter out. If they get a helo, so does your team..

I was playing with a good squad the other day. I was flying, they were on the ground telling me what targets to hit. I'd bomb, strafe, they'd move in, take a target. I kept doing this, bombing the hell out of locations with a bomber while they'd take it over. It was good work.
On the ground, it was working good with them, taking objectives like it was nothing.

It's just a matter of getting on a team with people who know what they're doing. It's so much easier when people have voice to communicate this stuff, but no one wants to take advantage of it. It doesn't cause lag or anything that I've noticed. But you get the annoying people who want to chat the whole time.

I was playing and everytime I'd go with my squad they'd fly way up there and I just thought the pilot was retarded. So I finally said something nasty about the pilot being a complete moron when they broke their silence and explained what they were doing.

Yeah the purple heart is bad.. I got my pistol award, basic helicopter, and a silver star last night.

I was kicking ass with the pistol.. I need 2 more weapon upgrades. When the support gun thing heats up, I switched over to pistol and took two guys out.. I think you need 7 kills in a game to get that award. I was kicking.

Now I just need to fly a jet straight up and bail out.. but maybe it's not a good award when you get shot down that high up eh?
October 25, 2005 10:56:24 PM

I was kicking ass last night too. Had something like 15 kills and 2 deaths and we had every flag. Tickets were counting down. Suddenly they got a flag, everyone spawned, and I got killed almost immediately before I realized what was going on. I thought we had it won. I was wrong. Sure we won, but I got spawn killed 6 times in a row trying get get the same bastard who got me the first time. Revenge isn't a good idea.

I realized that my win:loss ratio is bad because.. when we're up, 80 to 20, we'll lose. I don't know how it happens, but almost every time they're come from behind wins for the other team. I should start switching teams at the last minute to get the win. hah.

I've been playing a lot of Sniper, Support, and Spec Ops.. I'm getting really good with the sniper, Support ain't so bad but it's definately support where you cover a group, instead of going rambo. Spec ops.. I can hold my own against a couple guys. The Pistol has become my friend.. I'm starting to be consistent with my kills with it.
