    Ok well I've been playing this game for a few days now and I must say it's kick'in my ass.:ohwell: I know fps mp games always start of hard, but this game is very frustrating to play as a n00b. I am assuming as the guns get better, my chances of killshots will get better? I have shot guys point blank with shot guns and they just turn around and cap me:ekk: Is it a glitch, hack, or me being retarted?

    core is were you have crosshair and the HUD with mini map and stuff. I DO NOT play core games anymore. find a nice hardcore server were you have no crosshair and no HUD also the bullets do far more damage in hardcore and it more realistic.

    Oooh that makes perfect sense! Well I guess I have been playing both hardcore and core games because I have noticed the HUD on and off. Thanks:)

    hardcore servers tend to make my bloodpressure spiral - there are good servers and good players then there are those fucktards who use totally noob BS methods & tactics to kill you because its probably pretty difficult to do it in Normal mode. such methods include camping in spawn areas in capable bases killing the guy as soon as he spawns & not making any attempt to capture the point even though there like 1 n a half squads camping there with them.

    really BS tactics. & its because of BC2 that i swear i need anger management. the number of players who use poor tactics such as spawn camping have totally rocketed since previous games & other older FPs's.

    ----

    then you will get into teams that are so fucking terrible i swear to god half the BC2 player base treat BC2 just like BF2 which it is not. BC2 is a lot more team/squad orientated then BF2 - if no one squaded up in BF2 nobody would give a shit. but people would still know what to do. half the BC2 players seem incapable of grasping the general concept of the game as well as learning how to work as a team. idiots that think they know shit but then spawn as sniper just like 70-80% of the team when we are supposed to be attacking in RUSH mode. then you have to leave the server & look for another one where people have a half decent level of IQ they dont need to dig for and know how to peel a fucking bananna.

    for the love of god....

    I find myself switching between core and hardcore all the time. If I want to rampage with the T88s I pick core since accuracy can beat bullet spam but if all I want is adrenaline pumping action I always pick hardcore. If I get frustrated by CG spamming I pull out the AN-94 in either mode a put "hot carl" is his grave.

    I have a G5 not liking the wires. Ive read that the Mamba has a 1000hz polling rate default and can be used wired or wireless. add to it 5600dpi. It also is said from pro reviews to have no lag like using a wired mouse.

    Eh, I have a wired mouse now, but when I started playing I was using an MX Revolution, and I had no issue killing.

    yeah, that got a bit annoying when I had the Logitech G7 - batteries would last around 3-4hrs gaming. my sessions usually last 24hrs.

    The MX Revolution that Kurgan speaks of does not have traditional batteries. When the charge indicator is getting low, toss it on its charging stand. This can be bad if you ignored your charge light and its dead because you now have to wait at least 30 minutes or so for a decent charge that will likely last the rest of your session. However, every 3-5 days I just make a point to put my Revolution back on its stand and I never have an issue.

    Logitech has a few mice that do this now, and I believe Razer has a couple as well.

    Hardcore is not for the faint of heart! you must be calm when playing or you will throw your mouse through your monitor! I love it cause see how long it takes to kill someone on core (especially with a sniper rifle) then it makes me want to scream cause one shot of a bolt action long range sniper rifle with a 308 chamber or above will put someone down quick. Now with this said, it does get your blood boiling when your running out in the open and you get one shot snipped but in RL you wouldn't be running in the wide open.

    What El Fiendo says, the mouse I had went for days on end without needing to be recharged. And even if I forgot to charge it, I could just put it back on the charge base as I was waiting to respawn after dieing and that would be enough to last to the next death.

    I loved my MX Rev, was a great mouse, and unbelievably comfortable. My Alienware Tactx now is nice, but I don't like it as much.

    I think the opposite, I'm not really playing the game for complete realism. I like supporting others and marking people, team work and such. On HC its too much of a COD FFA without anyone looking out for others.

    Im sorry but i think this is not true cause if your on a good team that communicates and uses the right classes it is more squad based than you think.

    The key work there is "good" a random team of people can't communicate, don't always have 3 other friends to join a game, actually usually just me and 1 other person. And even if the mics did work, doesn't mean that I know those players are even half way competent.

    I like the minimap and marking because it adds more to it. I can see people who need ammo, who need health, who need to be revived. And lately I been playing shotty Recon, up close and personal, go in with a bunch of guys behind me, throw a motion mine, now when we are capping the flag my motion mine just adds to the squad work. If they die I know where to hide to wait for them to spawn.

    If its what you like, its what you like, but I rarely see team work in non-HC, and HC I just see zergfests. Hard enough to get a rez in normal, in HC no one wants to risk it, or even sees your corpse, and you never ever get ammo.

    on hardcore you can see if they need ammo or health when you look at the person cause it pops up above there head. been playing assault alot and when there meter is low and it shows the bullet symbols then i know they need ammo
