    Time for someone else's dime??

    I have TF2 and have played our server, when there are people in there its a blast but it has been empty lately during prime-time. I will jump in when I can but it's no fun being the only player in there waiting for others to join. I have ADD and need to be engaged quickly or I will forget why I joined the server..............ahh, what were we discussing here?

    I don't think there is an easy fix for stacking. It does happen for sure. One would hope people would police themselves and spread out the talent pool evenly, but that just isn't happening. I really hope some type of change is implemented because the current system for Retro just aint working.

    Changing Priorities

    it sounds as if you are going through some very healthy changes. Realizing that your family takes priority over gaming. This is a good thing. Feel good regarding the maturing process you are going through. Not saying that someone who likes to game alot is immature. Simply saying that family and domestic duties should always have one's focus over gaming. When there is a healthy balance then gaming can be fun, when it controls one's life that it can create all kinds of problems on the home front. I am sure plenty of marriages have bit the dust because of someone in the family devoting all their free time to it.

    thanks for the explanation M2. I'm more concerned about playing the game as intended so I won't be "dumbing down" my DX level to gain any type of advantage. In a perfect world others wouldn't do this either but if any type of advantage can be gained there will always be those that will exploit it. Like you stated it is possible but is sure does not pass the smell test.

    I am little confused, It is ok to run a lower version of DX to lesson the flash effect? I know when I get flashed it completely washes out the screen for several seconds and then death usally follows. So if I am understanding correctly it is ok to ratchet down DX to shorten the flash effect correct?

    What are the bench marks for a skilled player?

    I have to agree that being a team player is very high in the benchmarking of a skilled player.
  7. Is it the player that is always at the top of the scoreboard? Is it someone that is proficient with an awp and therefore always gets on the defending team so that they can sit back and pick off the offensive players? I think the bench marks of a skilled player is that their score will be good no matter what weapon they choose and no matter what side they are on, offense or defense. Am I completely off base, let the flames begin.

    Map Rotation

    It is impossible to please everyone. Everytime dust 2 comes up it's a good thing I don't keep a hand gun by my pc because I might end up spraying my brains against my moniter. Dust 2 is tired and old and can be had at any number of servers at any given time. I like that GC has customs thrown into the regular rotation, that is one of the reasons I decided to join GC. Italy is overrated also, that is a T map if there ever was one. Recrud is a good environment and change is good. It's a good thing when customs come around and folks are forced to learn the new map and new tactics. Otherwise for instance, a player knows the next map that is coming up and knows that he/she owns as a T or CT on the map, what motivation does this player have to choose Auto when the same old map shows up. A good player is going to do well on any map. So please keep the customs around for those of us that have grown weary of the same old same old.

    rotations or votes?

    no rotation please, keep em to a vote or random. Rotations get old and predictable.
  12. Howdy, I really like the custom maps. They look great and are a nice change from the same ole maps on Recrud. I am so sick of dust2. Everytime it came up on Recrud it was a good thing I didn't have a pistol near my pc, the pc or myself may not still be here.

    Looking to buy a Digital Camera

    Best advice is to do some research to figure out what features you need and which ones you want and ones that don't matter. Cnet.com has good reviews and you can sort by price. Any of the big camera makers have good models in different price ranges but not many make a great camera in all the price ranges so do a little research and find the the top models in your price range.
