It has now been one full week since I even turned on COD4.  That's the longest break I've taken since the game came out.... WOW!

I figure I've got another weekend until I have GTA IV SP done (I'm at 50 hours now) then I need to give COD4 some attention. We'll see how long it takes to shake the rust off.

I swear, I think Infinity Ward put in a patch this weekend that broke my guns. ATB witnessed some of my worst performances ever.  Funny thing was that as soon as ATB left, I went 19-5 with a heli on Crash. But that's because I can camp like crazy on Crash - I either go in the blue building and pick people off or the building directly across. If I am forced to move around and engage enemies on the move I have just been useless.

None of us did particularly well last night...

I didn't have a good match until my last when when I went 35-x where the x was actually a small number smile

Played a little Headquarters yesterday for the first time.  It's a lot less of a slaughter-fest than Domination and it's good for XP. Almost to level 50. But Headquarters on Showdown is kind of silly.

Teggy and I and Citron916 who actually re-introduced me to Domination mode have been playing it somewhat consistently and now I am really enjoying it.

So I'll be on tonight. Hopefully Teggy will be too and Citron has confirmed that he'll be there too.

We don't always win, but we have fun...except when morons keep suicide charging the only guarded flag.

Any takers?

That's what is sounds like when you're enjoying yourself? I'd hate to hear what it sounds like when you're not enjoying yourself slywink

Not sure if I can make it on tonight, I'll have to see.

And should I bother with the MP44?

Well, to be fair, domination can be the most frustrating thing I've ever encountered in gaming.

The continuous march on a fortified position is baffling.

Once again watching my KD drop like a stone.

Might be taking a break from Domination frown

I'm just a few hundred kills behind Hark. Thing I might hang this game up when I catch him.  mad

Couldn't get on last night, although I sneaked on this morning for a few minutes and maxed out my M60.  Hoping to go 1st prestige this weekend, but I don't know if I have enough time.

Ah shoot, I forgot to send you a request Hiccup - could have joined up tonight. Anyway, right before I signed off tonight (sorry ATB, what time zone are you in?) I hit 54, so Commander is within sight. People always bash the ACOG, but I decided to give a shot tonight and tell you what, I like the thing on the M16.  It takes a bit of getting used to, but with whatever/stopping power/steady aim, it makes the M16 really versatile.  If you get caught up close, you can fire from the hip, and if you are far away, you've got a mini sniper rifle. It's worked great for me on maps like Countdown, Crossfire, Strike, Overgrown, Broadcast and Creek, and it even made Ambush almost bearable.  Tried out the mini-uzi on Chinatown and didn't do half bad, so I think I'm going to level that up to help me along to 55.

Added hiccup. He either didn't show or didn't accept my invite.

Played domination again tonight. My K/D dropped .02.  I was this |-| to 1.69 but now I'm all the way back to 1.66 after less than a week of domination.

Must. Stop. Playing. That. Mode.

Oh by the way, yesterday I found what I believe to be the most obnoxious kit. It seemed like the entire team I was playing against on Wetwork was using shotguns with juggernaut and martyrdom.

Have you watched the BF:BC field guide video on the marketplace?
Man it looks DAMN sexy.

BF2 was major fun for me, so I am all over this one when it hits.

Right now I am having waaay too much fun dealing with real life relationship drama to be enjoying any vids..
I played Conan with everybody for like a whole two effen days...
Yaay life..

Oh, so I came online yesterday and saw that Hiccup was playing, so I joined his game. It came up as Sabotage - I had no idea what I was supposed to do, so I quit out and went back to team deathmatch.  icon_redface

Sabatoge is basically (from my childhood) capture the flag.

There is a neutral bomb placed in the middle of the map, and each team is trying to capture it and plant it in the enemy "base".  Once planted it can be diffused.  And it really, really, really sucks on creek.

I don't usually play it, but I joined a game a friend was already in smile

Wow, I had one of those soul-crushing sessions last night. Logged on and wound up in a room with a few guys from the same clan.  A couple of them were good, but this one guy, he was unreal. 30-40+ kills every round of team deathmatch.  I would simply step out of cover and I was dead. No place seemed safe. I went 2 or 3 rounds with 2-3 kills and 10+ deaths. Somehow my ratio didn't drop, and I took that as a cue to drop off an go play some Gears of War SP.  I don't understand how people can be that good.  I would watch the kill cam and I couldn't even see myself on the screen, yet the guy had me pinpointed and would drop me with 2 M16 bursts.  crybaby

Fire at anything that moves, that's how they do it.
I do that as well. If it looks like it's moving, even a pixel, I fire into it.
Nothing thereWorst case you wasted 2 or 3 bullets.

I played a bit this morning, not too bad not too great.
Second match I ended up below even, but the few afterwards I managed to stay in the  20ish/10ish ratio.

I'm getting too old for this $h!t
