first im going to say some good things about this game, its great its not arcadey like heroes and generals. you have to think its fun and better than any game ive seen like this, now having said that here is my rant

this game irritates me because i could have to spend 15 minutes running to get to the objective to just get shot in the head by someone in a bush. where did you all find these bushes? Galiffrey? because they sure are Time lord technology a single bush can hide one person to the point where its absolutely impossible to see them except when they move and we all know thats not how bushes actually work at best if you really were hiding under a bush in real life you would still be 10x more visible than in the bushes in this game. since i started playing i think it was two weeks ago ive gotten 4 kills thats it only four.you know a difficult game can be enjoyable and fun cause its a challenge but its not fun at all when you know your going to die within five seconds after spending a lot of time trying to get where you need to be, is not fun. its frustrating and i can see why a lot of people leave this game. also the spotting feature is terrible i hate spending a long time moving from one lace to where an attack is taking place and find no enemies where they have been reported. its a waste of time and effort, the weapons atleast some of them should not be locked to someone who is on level one. i mean mortar sniper, lmg should be something you specialise in during training to unlock and use them.on that subject why are there no bots on offline practice its good and all to be able to hit an enemy 500 meters away but that doesnt do anything for you because your target is going to be moving not standing up and perfectly still, why have they not put bots in it? also why is there no jump button?

Hi Jeff...welcome aboard this unique game. Yup you pointed out some "sore" points no doubt. Hey you got more kills than I got when I started, so long ago. Good work on that.

:)

Anyway..one thing I can offer that might alleviate some of "soreness", if you haven't already done this, is to find a squad that plays at times you like to play, get on team speak with them and participate with them. Your game will improve rapidly, you will get more kills, die less often and have a lot more sense of accomplishment and fun. At least that is often what happens when people finally get in a group of players that fit with them.

Took me a while to do the squad thing and team speak...but it made such a huge difference when I finally did that. I was less frustrated for sure.

Anyway..just a friendly suggestion. Glad you are in the game.

Salute!

ill have to give it a go, thank you :)

I am not playing at the moment. Though I am still paying. lol.

I have been travelling and unable to get on line to play.

But I will be back in August or so....I hope.

Anyway....I think the strength of this game is that you find people who really like coordinating the different aspects that this game allows for. i.e. infantry, air, sea...action.

For me at least it is the community of players that is the "addictive" piece of the game.

Working together, having some fun, while fighting it out, that has me a long time participant.

I hope you hang in there.

While I am not in game till August... my squad is the Devils Brigade...Loonie's the key guy. You can search that squad in game for that group and are welcome to join it. We are axis though

:)

keep at the game...it's not your typical shooter...there is a lot of thinking that has to occur for success.

Anyway..glad you are playing.

Salute!

Welcome to BGE... when I first started playing we did not have mobile spawn points but instead of playing infantry I was going to be an Ace pilot. I practiced the bf110 to make sure I could fly it off line for hours prior to subbing. My 3rd air mission, I spawned in on the AF and saw my very first infantry in the game running up to my plane. I had no idea who it was ie German or Allied, it just did not click. Anyway what he was doing was sapping my 110... After learning that flying was crazy hard... I got my first kill. It was a Betty. That was on week 2 of flying. My first A2A was on a H75 on week 5. I had a kd of something like .12. I went ground and had a very similar experience as you except I did not get a single kill for the first 10 days. My first infantry kill was a trade and I was seriously stoked to have killed someone. My first tank kill was in a 38t and I found an A13... My heart was beating out of my chest, I said on chat, theres a ET over here right in front of me.. and the PB told me to shoot it lol. I did killing it. It was so satisfying because prior all I did was die.. I had no idea what or who killed me.

I say all that to say this. This game is very hard, there is steep learning curve.

Instead of running in, chose a mission that has a checkmark next to it, it will be a mobile spawn point to get you closer to town. As others have told you, join a squad. Working with a squad will give you more experience on how to work the field and be successful in a week then you would by yourself in 2 months.

Welcome to the game. Yes, it is hard, that is what makes it fun though too.

And I don't think you're doing as bad as you think, I once looked up my first map stats and if I recall right it was 0.16; now I have 1000's of kills and consistently have a KD over 1.0, with time I think you'll be fine.
