I was a first day player.  There were thousands of players.  There were thousands of bugs. 

The Char was Uber. The Germans had the tungsten core round in the pak36. Chars were impervious to Stuka bombs. The K98 sight floated all over the place....

 

 

whats changed

 

oh. And when I left they had just added snipers. Just to give you an idea of the state of the game when I just gave up.

I was in Section 2. We were a sniper squad. I LOVED the “lone marksman” aspect of the game. 

Back in the day 7 of us went to Brussels. We held the city contested for over three hours.  We killed 81 with one loss. We went in on foot and left on foot.

 

one of the reasons why we left was because our play style was “removed”.  It was around that time that sniper classes were implemented.  We only liked the open sights anyway.  

 

We went to harass and contest, never to “Hump a city”, while the main force, pushed on another city.  We perfected the sniper shot through the view hole of the Ally tanks, they whined and got bulletproof plexiglass.  We perfected the sniper shot on the scout vehicles using the velocity of the K98,  They whined and we got the Pan-char.  We sniped pilots in aircraft, they whined and they got chicken pits that were impervious to rifle fire.  We sniped AT gunners and we got mech warriors that wouldn’t even die to pistol rounds RIGHT TO THE HEAD.

Thats why the whole squad left.  We fired, they died, they cried, game changed...until we open sight marksman soldiers just left.

I left a Col.  no idea what I would be now.

I am not a day one player, and I would struggle to list all the changes since 2005/6 so you will need to spawn in to see all the changes from 18 years ago.

 

Welcome Back! S!

Wow...  this put a smile on my face. I will keep in touch.  I need to DL the game and just bang off 16 years of rust before I’m Section 2 quality again.

4 kills per hour.  KPH should become a new stat.

Thats nothing! A long, long time ago, I was lifting from a rear airfield, way back from the front, where one would think it was safe; I had 19 kills and no deaths in a p39 and was playing to survive. Well, long story short, an elmg nailed me on the af. He'd been out over a thousand minutes (might have been over eleven hundred) going from base to base, camping, deeper and deeper into allied territory. Just my damn luck. :mad:

Good old section II. I remember those little bushes we would kneel in around nearly every FB. It was so hard to be seen in those. Add that with no muzzle flash, we were like ghosts.

Lugan, Howitzer, Tatonka, Drcairo, Borntogo, so many names that struck fear into the hears of the Allies. 
I was the black sheep of the squad. I couldn't (and can't) hit the broad side of a barn with a rifle.
