    Yes. They use oversaturated colors and extra sharpness filters to hide the fact that there is much, MUCH less detail in the game compared to the competition. Sharpness and oversaturation =/= higher quality. It = fooling the uneducated masses. Same tricks are used on movies.

    the CoD games all follow the same principle too, static environments (nothing moves, which helps reducing aliasing artifacts) and short view distances - something is always blocking your view, with long distance stuff being backdrops only.

    With what wile E said above it works to make it seem better than it is, but it is not fantastic, or awesome, or mind blowing - its just well polished to make the most of what they have.

    No he had that one then he put up another one that hardly ever had any traffic. When BF3 comes out I'll throw you
    a little more money towards that server and if we can keep people using it I'll help you out administrating it Death.
    That last venture defintely was a bit of a let down:shadedshu

    Just checked my old messages and that was March he ran the other server.

    I may hop on soon for a bit, though I don't know for how long, my internet has dropped like five times in the last hour or so.

    I see dog tag counters and I must step in, I'm happy to see I'm not even on Crazys top list (though I think he has got me once) since we have played a lot together. This is my list down to 5 tags, got a lot in the 1-4, too many to sift through :p

    [​IMG]

    You guys might want to check your tags on BFBC2, statsverse was horribly off for me.

    Ah it don't bother me. I have only seen one other TPU with a worse one and he is down in the .27 range or something. I can run a 1.0 range if I am playing recon or Assualt carefully, that just doesn't help the team much though. I rather die more aften if I can help repair or take out Tanks and revive. Lately though I have been gunning in Choppers and that can work for your K/D or against it. If you have a pilot who pays attention to his health it is great he can go land away from the action and let me repair, but lately I have guys who just keep going ahead and getting us blown to bits before I can get many kills. I think I have actually dropped to a .46 in the last couple weeks. I haven't seen many TPU guys lately, but then there is another problem if you get on a server playing against the Likes of Kurgan, Tripex, Highway, Crazy, Haru, and the rest of the crew you get obliterated. Well I do any way. I'm going to change up my style here soon and try Kurgans favorite, flanking on assualt and see what happens. He made since when he said if you come up behind them they don't already have a bead on you. You have to be a sneaky bastard though:D

    all i know is i need more kurgan dog tags... sadly all the servers your own when i join have terrible hit detection for me, ive been stuck in a rut on the same 2 shitty servers forever now as there the only ones i can land any shots, even then its pretty bad,

    empty a full clip from a PP 2000 and 3 seconds later the first bullet registers is the norm for me now. same with most guns, seems only explosives are un affected, C4, Mines, Rockets, etc

    Yeah, got to be sneaky. But it pays off big time, my strategy is to always be where I'm not expected. We have flag C and they have A and B, they think I'm going to B? Nope I'm going to A. And if their team is really good, they will come for A, since I am solo I will back off the flag, watch it and pick off those that came from me, it's great bait. Then I may head for B depending on how many showed up. If I can tick it to grey and stop them from respawning I will. But if I know they will respawn and come at me again I will retreat. And do that usually gives my team enough of a distraction to cap B.

    :D Yeah, you been pretty unlucky with hit detection.

    I was about to say the same thing as well. ever since crazy started playing, all he has mentioned was the hit detection. it leads me to believe that your PC or internet is tweaking on you. This happened to me for about 4 days until the cable company fixed an issue down the road and then i never had anymore problems

    well thats just it other FPS games i have no hit detection problems

    i think its just BC2 tweaking out and being a pain in the ass,

    as Battlefield 2, and even shitty F2P mmo FPS games have better hit detection for me, eitherway dosent matter will have a brand new PC build in a few weeks just waiting for my Fractal Designs Define XL case to arrive, should be here by the 20th

    Well DOM my list is full, I'll see if I can jumble anyone around and kick people if they haven't been on forever. All you really have to do is get one or two of us, I don't have everyone on my list, but you get a few and you just chain join off each other. Despite that, I think I'm going to jump on some BC2 right now since it does look like quite a few BC2er's are on TPU right now.

    Try Conquest, what I was in was Rush, that mode is horrible throw your corpse at walls of bullets mode. Conquest should give you some roaming room, some room to make strategies and flank with.


    BC2 a headache? JC just bought this game, he hasn't ever played before.
