    Which is why they give you the choice, but to call 95% of the the other TPU'ers pussies for preferring it the other way wasn't cool. That may not have been your intention, but that was what you did.:wtf: I suggest you play with them more often and see what the outcome is and you may change your mind on whether they play like pussies or not. :D

    They have a filter so you can filter severs based on every single setting

    Narrowing it down too much might screw you as there will only be a few niche servers. But just checking off minimap, or 3d Spotting and Minimap Spotting should probably get you a good amount of search results.

    No I agree with him. All of you are pussies and hack. Except me. I'm much better then all of you. I'm a proven fact.

    Exactly. How can he be the best when I'm the best? The fact I know this makes all other assertions meaningless. I'm the best and if I wasn't I wouldn't know I'm the best. Its just common sense.

    For me, normal makes the game easier as I don't have to try and figure out where I'm getting shot at from or where the enemy is. I just have to look for the triangles.

    That's why I prefer hardcore.

    Calling someone a "pussy" for how they choose to play a fuckin video game has got to be the dumbest thing I've heard in this entire thread.

    So am I the only one that, when suppressed, am able to kill the other person before he kills me about 50% of the time?

    From all the complaining I'm seeing on other sites, my experience seems like an anomaly as if it is impossible to kill anyone, ever, when being suppressed.

    We usually tend to group up each night at about 9PM MST, +/- and hour or so. TS info is in the OP, hope to see you there! ;)

    Cool, appreciate the responses.
    EST here, generally I'm on 10pm-midnight when the GF isn't over and occasionally during the day if I skip out on work early!

    I'm a jobless bum, so I can play at any time. I'm on the TS basically every night playing, as is about 10-12 others, although we don't always end up playing at the same time every day, yet is is basically every day that al lof us play, for sure. Should be no problem hooking up with a bunch of us and get a game going, usually there will be two or three sitting waiting for an invite!

    This is why I never get to play with you guys:(
    I usually start playing around 11:00 pm Alaska time (which is 2:00 am for East coast) and play until about 2:00 am.

    It's all luck, you get better dice rolls :laugh: (yes this is now D&D) I'm not sure if you have just read about people complaining, or actually watched a few videos. Either way, here's an informative video for everyone. After watching you and other might decide that it's just best to fire a few suppressing rounds back at them and hide. Thats what I do, mostly so they can't hit me either.



    I'm sometimes on at that time, just matters when I get off work. But usually I'm probably playing on a Euro server with Marineborn, was because his internet sucked before, but now because at that time of the AM thats what servers usually have population in them.

    Nah, just a Tiny Terror. The Dark Terror has a black case, instead of the white, and a bit more output, but I saw no reason to go with the Dark Terror when it came out. My two daily players are that guitar in my avatar(a Gary Moore BFG), and a Buckethead guitar(one of 60 made for Buckethead himself). The Buckethead's pickups are way too hot for the Dark Terror, and I wasn't getting tube breakup where i like it to be, based on the guitar volume (I'm one of those guys that uses the controls to shape my tone excessively, and barely use pedals).

    I've got a many Gibson guitars now, my next will be a gold Gretsch SparkleJet w/ Bigsby.


    I play a couple of hours every day now(been playing for like 20-some-odd years now), and really, good sound is all in the fingertips.;)

    Cool, I've been playing about 25 years though I go through periods where I play a few hrs a day and others where I might go a week without due to work, kids, etc.

    I use a Mesa/Boogie V-Twin tube preamp and play through a 60w Boogie MKII. Main guitar is an '82 BC Rich Eagle (true Rico/USA handmmade neck-thru original) but I also have a beat up old ES335 that I love.

    If the reason that some complain about it is that you can't go full auto and get someone form a distance, then it isn't suppression. It's their game play.

    I always do short bursts on all full auto guns. Some might ask about LMGs and while they do get more accurate the longer you hold on, a lot of people try to use them outside of their intended purpose. You're not going to hit the guy very often in the other building across the street if your moving and trying to fire. Add in the suppression effect and you asking for death.

    1) If I get suppressed (and I know they are not next to me) first thing I look for cover. I enlarge the mini map and this helps with killing the person that is suppression you a ton. Most people do not use a silencer and show they show up on the map.

    2) If the fire is from long range (like a recon or being shot at from another flag) then hiding will be enough to get rid of the suppression.

    3) If it is someone at the same flag or near where you are, look at the mini map to see where they are. Move from cover to cover until can get to them from behind.

    4) I've been playing assault a lot recently to try and unlock things on the an-94. I always run with the nade launcher or smoke. If you are in the open with no where to hide and you know where the fire is coming from, launch some smoke or a nade round toward them to cover or scare them in to cover with the nade.

    5) Never run around alone. I can't stress this enough. Having friendlies on the same flag as you is not what I'm talking about. Always be running with/around 2 or 3 friendlies. You may be getting suppressed, but one of them will not be (if you're running in a wide spread or they are a little behind you). You can run for cover and they will be able to take care of the person(s) making you blind with suppression.

    6) When being suppressed, if your attacker is close, flank them. This is the best thing to do when being suppressed. Do not run in to it face to face or your asking to die.

    Those are just some tips that always work for me. Obviously there are going to be some instances where your just out in the open and can't do anything about it. You're going to die but then suppression isn't the problem in that case.

    Fwiw, I play very little on TS with my other friends and I do fine without voice communication. Best tip I can give is to think ahead. Be running near cover or something if you have to run in the open by yourself. But always run around with someone one from your own team whether they're in the same squad or not. If you find someone that works well with you and they have an opening in their squad (and your squad doesn't understand the meaning of working together), then switch. No reason submitting yourself to undo punishment when you can do something about it.

    In worse case run away. The ticket that it costs your team for you dying is far more important then the objective your trying to take/defend (yes I play conquest, rush, and tdm and I still stand by that statement).

    Suppression is to keep you from doing stupid stuff. Instead of fixing their game play, people complain that they can't do the stupid stuff they could before. I for one think DICE fixed suppression post patch.

    What I like about TS is that it adds another "layer" to the game that cannot be had otherwise.

    Our TS has a good crowd, and when the action is tight, the chatter is very focused on what's going on, right that moment.

    But in the lulls of action, conversation might turn to something else, like it would anyway.


    ;)




    Soldier A:"Hey dude, I think your leg is still over by that burning tank. Want me to go get it?"

    Soldier B:"Well, I can't bloody get it myself, now can I? Horse-hater."

    Soldier A:"You know, my mom always said that if ya can't have two legs, three arms is nice! Want a beer?"




    ^^^Typical TPU BF3 TS chatter.
