Pretty much what I should have said. lachen.gif

The most important one for me is practice firing on the move. thumb.gif

Practice, practice and practice some more. The more you use the tank the less you will have to think about firing, you'll learn to do it automatically. The same goes with using the tank efficiently, as you use it more and more you will learn what works and what doesn't, I've given you a bit of a head-start with my little list smile.gif

I have yet to figure out how to fly those planes with a mouse/keyboard, you just dont have enoug control over the jet. The chopper is much easier to fly with a mouse/keyboard. The easiest way to practice is get a buddy and play the 2nd co-op map and just practice you control, hovering, and flying between trees and other objects. That will help you get used to dogging and weaving.

I'll teach you a super secret way to own in the jet with mouse/keyboard: bind spacebar to up and slow down in the turns while tapping the afterburner every couple of seconds to prevent the landing gear from coming out.

I got my first RPG kill on a low flying jet. Nothing more satisfying getting a hard kill like that! RPGs move so slow the timing has to be perfect. My favorite past time now is killing low flying helicopters with the tank. It's going to get even better when one shot tank round is an instant kill this next patch!

God I love this game. I think the only thing that might take some of my time away is if I get in the CS:GO beta.

It's the complete weapon damage list and other gun attribute table
So every weapon has the same dmg just different bullet drop rate and fire rate? mmm interesting and weird way of balancing.

This goes for all vehicles! including FLYING ONES! i mean who jumps out of a heli just cause your health is a tiny bit low.....oh wait it was a recon guy just wanting to get on top of a building.......sigh and i died for this. What a waste of a 10min spawning heli. The heli is still flyable at 50% or lower health...yes its harder to fly but its do able to land repair and move on. Not bail and leave your teammates and/or gunner to die. How am i suppose to know you jumped out when im trying to save our ass and kill people.

I have a recurring bug in this game that's very severe today, it happened a few times in the past but now it's happening every 14 seconds in a solid pattern.

The HUD will disappear and I'll be frozen, the game itself isn't, then 2 seconds later the spawn menu appears and I select where to spawn, then I do, and it repeats itself all over again.

Anyone else suffering from this ?
