    Hi All,

    Just thought I would share something with you that tickles me everytime I play COD and it happened again last night.

    You always get some smart mouth (usually 12 year olds) bleating on about how they got more kills than you blah, blah, blah....

    When you mention the fact that it said 'Victory' on your screen and 'Defeat' on theirs they launch into all manner of expletives....

    They go into meltdown coz they can't handle the fact that I don't give a crap how many times they kill me, its a TEAM game, and as long as our team wins then I'm happy. Even if I come 6th out of 6.

    Muppets.....:clap:

    Its like the whole, "you just stole my kill" - its a team game, does it actually matter who shoots them?! fair enough if it was free for all and I shot the guy he was looking at before him, but its still not stealing thier kill. bloody muppets :suicide:

    I played with a "team" like that last night.
    We were playing Domination but the 2 12 year olds on the "team" were only interested in getting kills.
    When I explained that in order to win we needed to hold 2 flags out of the 3, they came out with language I wouldn't even use myself.
    They didn't understand that if you get 2 flags at the beginning of the game, you can then get as many kills as you like just defending those flags.

    The other thing that defeats the object of playing team games is the number of people playing without headsets/mics.
    Last night only 3 out of 12 of us had mics plugged in.

    Communication plays a key role in games like Team Deathmatch and Domination.
    I played with a group of Americans a few nights ago and I was pleasantly surprised how much they talked during the game.
    They were obviously mature gamers and unsurprisingly we won every single match, purely because we co-ordinated our efforts.
    It was one of the most satisfying sessions I've ever had on COD 4.

    But surely the most imortant thing in a first person SHOOTER.. is to SHOOT as many people as possible... I usually enjoy placing myself between flags on domination so I can shoot at people running between flags, I usually rely on the rest of the team to do the BORING job of completing objectives.

    I also read on another forum that the number of KILLS you gain while in an Online Shooting game is directly proportional to the size of your reproductive organs and also to the number of people who think your are "Awesome"

    And again, when someone shouts "You kill stealing Fu**er" at you it means that they really admire your outstanding reflexes and wish they could aim as well as you.

    One last thing...... saying "Good Game Team", or "Well played Opponents" at the end of a round means you have no freinds, a tiny *winkle* and your mummy didn't breast feed you.



    ^^The above post is "SARCASTIC", incase you wondered.

    Fair enough spammy, but maybe in future you could try killing guys on the other team instead of your teammates...;):hiya:

    I think it's only in the Hardcore matches that friendly fire is turned on. Of course, grenades kill everyone. Martyrdom + team games = pain in the ring.

    Couldn't agree more.

    I've lost count of the number of times I have been on a good kill streak only for a team member to try and hijack my spot, promptly get killed and then take me out with Martrydom and Sonic Boom :mad: :rolleyes:

    I always play COD4 with my mate, we always stick together, so we defo play as a team, a few times we go into general chat and try play as a team with the whole team, but it doesn't often work so we go into private chat.

    Works good for us we usually win :)

    must admit I switch mike off as I'd feel a bit strange saying things like "I'll flank the sniper while you cover me" sat in a room on my own.
    I think my wife would think it'd all gone too far and either ban the game or divorce me.

    we had a few snipers at the top of the road in Crossfire once, at the end of the game some yank in the lobby was thanking us all for the cover we gave them on the ground. I nearly pi**ed myself laughing.

    but I've not played with avf yet and if talking strategy floats your boat then I'll give it a go, don't be offended though if I make stuff up like "He's behind you...!" or start talking dirty.:D

    Yeam im not tom clancy or anything, when playing with AVF's or mates were not spliting up into strike teams and co ordinating attacks or anything :rotfl:

    Its more of the "they're in the construction site\grannys house\ top of the building" or "watch your back mate" variety of team work.

    Like Catchphrase i just say what i see :D

    A sample of my more common strategic chat:

    "Right, I'm just about to - never mind, I'm dead"

    "I think this area's cle- ah balls."

    "I've just called an airstrike on - oh crap, on myself."

    This game really is fantastic. It really is that good as the wife has said ,because she plays it to death and she does not even like video games. We are addicted. Problem is, the reflexes are going now middle age has set in!!!!!!!!!!! We are overjoyed if we manage a kill tally of 5 or more, WHOO HA. The programmers really have done a top notch job on this, the online mode is second to none. Can't wait for the sequels or add-ons.
    Team deathmatch is our favourite.

    "TV and Video games, the THIEF OF TIME" who cares when we are having this much fun. We are all only here once!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You do have to laugh at some of the things you hear in the game when some people are talking tactics, getting shout at by a 12 year "to cover him while he clears the room!!"

    I am usually really helpful with comments like

    "they are in the room in the blown up building"

    ok i know most of everything is blown up but surely one of my team mate would go to the right one lol :D
