Not long after a couple of my nemesis showed up. Well actually I've played with one of them quite a bit lately so I actually get along with him. But I hadn't seen the other too much since he kept switching me to the RU side so he could get the US chopper. I switched him one time just for fun but let them stay together on the US side while we were RU. I feel I got redemption because I TV them like 4 times and shot them out with a tank and got them with stingers a couple times, along with regular chopper guns a few times. They sent me messages after the game saying good game. So I guess I can eliminate them from my little list now.

I set that up a few days ago. I wanted to see if I could sit with a javelin or a tank destroyer and get some lucky multi's. It took about 20 minutes but it did get filled up. I played a TDM game then went back to see if anyone joined and it had 18 players in it so I decided to play. Plenty of triple kills but that 4th guy never wanted to show up for me. All with the javelin, I couldnt for the life of me hit a damn chopper with the tank destroyer.

Boobies you say, not sure I know what you are talking about.

Also just to show everyone how Zath manages to have that great shot in the jet. Here he is playing. In this setup he avoids the ground due to the fact that the stick would be very hard to use.

One thing that I'd like to mention is that if you're getting up in the air with Zath, I think it's a good idea to run Rocket Pods. Why? If Zath (or any other pilot using Guided Shell) locks up something and they use smoke, you can follow with a full round of pods and at least get a disable or destroy. This is also somewhat key when you're going up against a team that uses lots of vehicles, as I know I can just let Zath go after jets and focus on ground units. I might not get as many kills using the pods, as most guys bail out of tanks before you get a kill, but pods are also very nice for scattering an enemy that's clumped up on an objective, thus giving your guys a chance to move in. They're also nice for pushing back or scaring away enemies ganging up on a team member on the ground.

Just my two cents.

Like a shark!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LoL

You keep way more speed than I do, I will have to try to fly turbo shark and see if it helps.

Do you try to line up bad guys so you only steer with your rudder? How do you get out of a toilet bowl with an enemy?

You seem like you never have opponents that fly like some of mine. Maybe you should post some not great games so we can see how you get out of some hairy situations

Good point spyder. Plus rockets can take out mines and c4. Although if two jets are running guided missile, and you time it right one jet can land a missile before smoke gets reloaded. You just have to stagger the attack a little. Good points with pods though, its nice they can destroy some concrete building too.

I totally agree. Plus it enables you to deal with nearly every ground-related threat. Guided is great against mortars and equipment. Rocket pod is great against C4, mines, and claymores.

Good idea, Brian. Getting rid of toilet bowls is tough. I'll see if I can find a video from a recent match where I do that.

As for rudder, I don't purposely line up so my rudder slides me along the jet. In fact, I try to go the other way - so my vertical motion keeps me in line with the jet. But rarely am I pulling straight up to keep in line with the enemy. Rudder gives me just the right amount of sideways motion to keep my rounds on target.

Say goodbye, Season 2 finale




post #13659 of 16243
That was hilarious!

New videos to share, too:

I tried focusing on evasion with this narration.
I come up against a decent jet pilot. Note his ability to use below radar. I could/should do that, too, but... meh!
Jet whoring from last night.
Round 2 of jet whoring. Note this one is still processing and may not come up for a little while.

MPH - Are you ready for tomorrow morning? Get your zzzz's tonight. I expect you downloading the minute it shows up.


Does anyone know what time it usually shows? I worked for the last ones so I am not sure. For some reason 9am EST sounds familiar but I dont know.
post #13661 of 16243
Also looking forward to tomorrow. At what time do you guys plan to hop on? smile.gif

Whatever time the map pack shows up to download. I have successfully gotten the kids out and got all my work related stuff out of the way. I havent done this in awhile for a game so I am hoping for a long fun day.
post #13663 of 16243
I thought it coincided with xbox's download times from what I had read in the past. I have forgotten though what time everyday that changes over for Xbox. 5am maybe? That might be Pacific time though. Idk I'm pretty sure by 8 am eastern at least the downloads are ready.

NICE! I always wait for my kids to go to sleep for the night or take a nap before I can play. I will probably miss tomorrow night, but I will be on for sure come Wednesday night. I'm really looking forward to these new maps. They look pretty awesome.

I'm almost to 500 kills with the M98B, this will be my first sniper rifle mastery tag. I will probably do the L96 after that since I'm at 372 kills and it's a short way to 500. I need to keep using the M40, I don't know what it is about that rifle, but my accuracy is at 47% with 50% head-shots. Need to use moar. Using these bolt-actions has been fun lately. I've been running into players that are standing still a lot, it really helps. It's challenging, but if you can figure it out it's very powerful. I have some good games and some bad. The key, for me, is being a bit more patient when you are taking objectives. Some times I run out as if I'm carrying an assault rifle and get destroyed. My favorite way to run snipers is 8x rifle scope, straight-pull bolt, and laser sight (for the no-scope fun). I have used the bipod at times, I got a 569m head-shot the other day with it (rush defense, counter-sniping some idiot on the carrier), but I find the straight-pull bolt more useful for the way I play.
post #13665 of 16243
In the second of Zath's videos, you can see that their top scorer went 0-8 and was only a L26. Probably got all of his points off of capping objectives and suppying/reviving. KDR means absolutely nothing when it comes to who I would want on my team.

Excited for tomorrow.
post #13666 of 16243
Yeah I'm going to clean my bucket out tonight I think.

WHY ISN'T MY DLC OR DIGITAL DOWNLOAD AVAILABLE YET?

While we set our release dates in hopes that players will be able to instantly and consistently access our titles on the stated date, it is up to the individual retailers and vendors what time exactly our content will be made available.

That being said, Microsoft and Sony both have times when content in their stores is generally, or traditionally, released.

Content on the Sony PlayStation Network Store is often updated or made available around or after 2pm PST, while content in the Xbox Live Marketplace is updated or made available between 12am and 6am PST.

So I'll be staying up tonight in case it drops early. I flew all weekend trying out different combination of perks and working on the skills. Sorry Zath for all of the midair collisions!
post #13668 of 16243
Thanks for posting Zath. Watched the first narration, still have the others to watch. You had me laughing pretty good at the end of the first one when you were checking battlelog. Good info to know though!

Don't care as long as I can see what I'm missing for 2 weeks smile.gif

Videos from last night:
What happens when you're down to 20-something tickets and need the tank? BTW, watch the end closely - someone gets a SMAW in the face!
We started the match down 500 tickets on Kharg Island. Challenge accepted!

Ahh man I forgot you don't have premium. I was excited to get to fly with you and spyder in air superiority. I'll try and upload as much as I can. Any preferences on game mode or maps?
post #13678 of 16243

I see Harp and Trail. Oh where can MPH be.



Also has anyone else seen a Colonel 100 who doesnt have all the vehicle unlocks? Well now you have, Mr MPH needs a little more playing time in the Mobile AA.

I was smart this time and started the download before I went to work. I got to bring the dog to the vet tonight, but will be on and off once I get home from work.
