    My aim with tanks is getting better, last night I shot down three helis in one round, just before I shot one down - which was moving, and at least 1km+ away :eek:

    "gg Abrams snipers" I lol'd.


    I haven't seen any cheaters that I know of, bragging or otherwise. I think they only hang around unattended servers mostly, which my clan's two aren't.

    It's hard to spot aimbotters, 'cause fraying bullets in BC2 don't work really well.

    I was playing on a Rush server out of Chicago, tonight, and three different ding-dongs got booted for aimbots in the same round.

    Tank combat is my forte in the game. I love ambushing enemy tanks as they drive past without them ever knowing.

    Anybody got any tips for using the tank reticule markings for aiming on targets esp in distance? I assume it is similar using those on infantry weapon scopes such as is covered in the video below (specifically taking out helis using the Carl G sans missile lock). And actually I wanted to post that video anyway cause while it has been helpful I still don't completely get it. No real experience with guns IRL either so...

    The "reticle" wiki page helps too but I could benefit from a discussion definitely. Hell, perhaps this is a worthy of a separate thread?

    So do they ban them from all servers when they get caught ? I have a hard enough time trying to bring up my K/D ratio with out playing against cheaters. If you go on a PB server will that insure your not playing against them ?

    PB bans are global and if they get PB banned (assuming the server has the latest list) they will not be allowed to join whatsoever. i played on a non ranked server last night and all but 1 person was hacking. i'd avoid non ranked servers at all costs.

    It would be nice if PB reported their IP to EA so they would get 86ed ASAP. It's fun to talk in anacronyms.:)

    I play the lowest local ping servers(to me it's Atlanta/Dallas).. You can't play 5 minutes without somebody getting booted for Aimbot. It's like baseball, I wonder what my stats would be if everyone was playing fair.

    it wont happen because then EA has to deal with customers whining MY ACCOUNT GOT HACKED AND YOU BANNED ME, GIMME A REFUND

    right now, hackers whine to EA who tell them to deal with PB who tell them to deal with EA...

    I's loving the update..no longer have to pick my loadout each round, and it's lovely to see so many people get kicked for using hacks...played about 5 hours yesterday, and I'm about to hop back in for at least another couple!

    new server browser works great for me too!

    Except the hardcore filter that doesn't filter hardcore, but a punch of settings :(

    Wondered why my favorite servers didn't show up when I disabled hardcore servers in search (they have kill cam off):
    http://forums.electronicarts.co.uk/...ny-2-pc/1055379-why-do-servers-become-hc.html

    That fixed it would be pretty great. Searching PB, not full or empty in Europe and sorting with amount of players = game in minute, instead of old style of empty server or 10 minutes search.

    i have some time around 2:30pm eastern to play if you guys want. can we play on the virginia server? i would like to test out the mysql integration. i have a gurdian database setup on my mysql server and i think it could be used for not only tracking ban evaders, but also player stats on the server.

    I see people talking about amazing tank shots, and I really got to share my best. It was on the desert map with the helis, I was RUS just leaving the exit of the base. I see the US chopper flying just on the RUS side of the UAV in the ship. The chopper was flying low, and headed to the left, flying low enough that when he headed left the small town at A the buildings hid the chopper. I lined my cannon wayp up and led him by about half a towns length, took my shot so it would crest the building tops barely, then took off driving figured it was never going to happen. A few hundred feet later I get a vehicle destruction and 2 kills..... wish I had fraps running, thats a shot from half the map with no line of sight on a movie target with a tank, that'll never happen for me again :(

    Somewhat of a conundrum here…

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Notice that both my M95 and M16 have the same # of kills. However, notice how many kills I need to reach my next gold star on the M95 versus the M16.

    Riddle me that!

    Oh thats simple man. The farther away a target is the higher you aim is the simplistic answer.

    Now if you want to get more in depth let me know and Ill make some graphs for you.

    I don't think the mil dots work properly on the scope. Certainly not the horizontal one's since there isn't wind deviation but maybe someone who's used them could explain if they are accurate in the game.
