    Yeah I often join you guys too such as last night but your squads are always full (even if not with all TPU'ers.) I realize such is complicated by the fact Im usually not on TS but I don't have a mic hooked up anyway to scream at you to squad up with me...

    Why no TS man? We will only judge you/mock you for maybe an hour.

    it only shows up on HDMI devices. if your device uses some kind of HDMI to DVI converter (or cable) then it wont show.

    That s not true I have HDMI cable only get the 2 4x4x4 showing.It used to show all of them,But AMD s new driver team seem to suck at this.Ever since 12.1 came it is missing.Also get every 5 boots AMD cat control at start-up rest of the time I have to manually start it,And the crossfire seems to break in the middle of a game now.Forgot to mention this is after running Drive Cleaner and complete reinstall of 12.1 and 12.2.

    Also ycbrc is for component cables (the green,blue,yellow Rca type cables)


    Anyways ,You lot that are good at Recon (I suck at it )Any tips on good spots and gun to use.Using k39 or something right now and try to get the so-flam for the assignments.

    LOL not exactly although yes me using voice would annoy her even more than the loud ass clacking on my mouse and KB already does (though she's at work and I'm not sometimes). I just don't like voice while gaming generally and thus don't even have my mic hooked up. And the couple times I've joined TS and then a game just to listen I haven't found much tactical value in doing so and it has just been kind of distracting.

    Furthermore, I haven't really found an way to text chat to you guys in TS either but maybe I just don't know how to use it well enough (or just no one responds...).

    As long as Crazy isn't raging and Highway isn't talking random tech stuff (which I enjoy. Just not in game) we use TS for tactical reasons when gaming. When the TPU wheel is rolling we all place top ten.

    Even though I have not played with anyone on TPU, Teamspeak is a must in my opinion.
    I fly the cobra and my buddy guns, without teamspeak and an average joe gunner it is a mess.
    If I ever get in the gunner seat and fly with random pilot I swear like it's going out of style because they cannot prioritize targets and/or do not see them.

    My issue last time I jumped in with someone I didn't know was that fucker went to B on Gulf of Oman and we helped clear the way for troops to take it. A hand full of kills, destroyed a tank or two. Everything was great. I spot some other tanks moving into the area and we are still circling B. Enemy starts taking Beach Landing, we are still circling B. In fact we just kept circling that flag until a tank shot us down with a standard shell. That is how predictable his pattern was.

    Basically I am trying to say the gunner often knows more about the battlefield than the pilot so I need someone that knows how to get in, give me good angles, add supplemental fire as need, and get out. It would also be nice if they didn't think a chopper dog fight was we both hover in one spot to see how long it takes for the gunner or seeker missiles to kill the other guy.

    For super long snipes, SV98 with 12x scope and bipod is a must. A bit shorter and I use SV98 but replace 12x with 7x and bipod with straight pull bolt and add a supressor. Shorter again and I go to Mk11 mod 0/SVD with 8x zoom, and if I just need a good gun for taking out other snipers I use mk11 mod 0/SVD with 4x scope coz it has no glint. I find the SKS useless for pretty much everything.

    Anyway... does anyone use the AN94 much? This gun is my next goal coz I think it will suit my playing style, its almost like assault rifle crossed with sniper. But then again, I thought the AEK-971 would be for me too but it has too much recoil to be accurate so I just went back to the KH2002 which is a sweet gun, almost no recoil. Oh yeah, I love burst guns too. :D

    Yeah we usually roll 48/32 player servers, I like full size map (simply because maps like Firestorm on 32 man don't have an AA so air vehicles can be a pain), so we usually try to find a 32 or 48 player Conquest Larger Server, but if we can't we just roll Conquest. 64 is usually just too many people to allow much strategy. When you got 64 players, theres usually someone around every corner, I've wasted all of my ammo just trying to make it to the target I'm trying to flank, then I die since I have nothing to kill said target with. 32/48 player servers give that room to flank more often, and I do love teh strategies.

    BTW, that bottom game was a money maker for me. Wish I could link the ones before you joined where the other team was calling Marine and I hackers (this went on for like 3 rounds), then that group of people must have finally left.

    Tv Missile Compilation

    Hey guys, I know you guys love TV missiles so I figured I would make a quick compilation video of some of the kills I was able to gather over the last week.

    enjoy!

    Got this juicy clip earlier when playing with Ufgy, Marine, Crazy, and Trip. Was a good streak, but the epic leap from Ufgy at the end sealed this as a keeper clip.

    Well my mouse has been set at 2000dpi. Gonna go in and check and
    see if it improves me. Have no idea how long it has been there:wtf:

    Yep I'd say it played into it a little bit. I wasn't getting more then 2 kills per match prior.

    Gonna have to leave my old ass a sticky note to remind to check it. I bump it up for turret's
    and then forget to tone it back down. Great job on that round Highway.

    Very true ! It always seems to be a game of chicken flying straight
    at each other or hover until one blows up. It is much better to be up above
    them and fire down on them. Also you are right , the pilots that take
    more time to pilot than to engage are the best pilots. They never stay
    still and can handle their aircraft a lot better. That was really the case
    when I played BFBC2. I haven't spent nearly as much time gunning in
    the chopper in BF3.
