I'm the same way. 9 out of every 10 people with headsets are either barking orders, blaming their deaths on everyone else, or constantly saying the "word" 'pwned'. There's a reason eavesdrop is considered completely useless. Because mics are useless.

I don't mean to sound arrogant but my loss is some times due to others if I'm not with a good team. Some people I play with agree with me. It sucks to have the best ratio and most or second most kills in the match and still lose. There is often one to three people who die three times as much as they get kills or completely ignore the objective. I don't talk when no one else has a headset. I always try to play with friends, who have headsets, and are more intelligent and less annoying than the people you mentioned. In my experience a little teamwork can make a big difference some times. Maybe I'm weird because I like being able to communicate in an online game. All well, this is a forum and as I've seen someone post before "Forums bring out the worst in people". Have a nice day.

Yeah my main game mode is standard SnD.
However I play with a group of friends who are quite good about when to focus and such.
I have this one friend in particular that lives, sh*ts, and breathes Gamebattles.
Granted the team hes leading is top 100.


anyways I have a TB headset right now and I spend 4/5 of my listening to where people are and have my voice control lowered so those annoying random folk don't take my head of the game....works well.
Honestly if i was going to recommend a product for a gamer, it would be a good decent headset.

I should also mention that those people shifting the blame are also the lowest rank, worst KDR, and don't know the word 'strategic'.

Also this is in TDM as it's all I play.

I know where you're coming from, Teqila. I only use a headset with my friends, and it provides a massive advantage with teamwork. A lot of people we see on there are willing to work together as well. I mainly play TDM, but it goes for other game modes, too.

Actually, it would be really weird if I didn't use my headset with the people I play with.

I'm sure a headset would be great if it was used properly. I've had a few instances where people on headsets have shouted at everyone to shoot at a heli. Suddenly the whole team all fires at once and the heli goes down in 4 seconds instead of one/two of us trying to save the team. But most of the time people just dribble sh*t, like this guy last night talking about his infected toe and another two guys discussing homework plans. I don't want to hear that rubbish.

I never understand why people have headsets on when there is no one else using one and then the proceed to talk to whoever is in the room with themabout something while shouting loudly down the headset, it's annoying, why can't they just take it off?

That sounds quite a lot like me. 95% of the time when I'm playing xbox (which isn't that much anymore seeing as it's finally summer for me) I play GB matches the whole time I'm on. I was just on the Number 7 team Fully Loaded Gaming, which in case you can't tell, they're amazing. I was on the roster for about a month until I got kicked because they started playing a lot of TDM not SnD or Map Gen. So I played 2 TDM matches and went negative both matches, resulting in me getting kicked.

Is it terrible that I can't stop watching that? lol.gif

I'm having problems with PunkBuster for some reason. Every time I enter a game, it kicks me after about 20 seconds and tells me to update my pb files. I go to the website, get the most recent files, and put them where it says to, but it doesn't have any effect.

I always found the M16/red dot as one of the easiest to get headshots. Since it's better as a long range weapon you can pick off people pretty easily.

For me it wasn't seeing as I'm used to guns with more recoil and are full auto, so the M16 was a slight change of pace. tounge.gif

I've shot guns, hunting with my dad, however, that was a few years back! I just opted to buy this game, and it is my first FPS that I actually bought. Seems it adds missions under the various ACTs as you progress, so you can't tell how long the game is.

I heard though, that like Uncharted (1), people felt it was good, but too short.
We now know the sequal is coming and I actually didn't before buying it for Xbox 360. I tend to think this game looks as good on both consoles, correct? This is on par with PC games in my mind!

In one respect, I like the Acts being of short stature, as it gives average game players a chance at completion as well, some of that goes to offering skill level selection. I took a wrong direction and failed more then once, and the initial training, I jumped into that without reading the manual, which is brief to be honest, but one of the ways I FIRE-TEST games is to jump in and wing it!

Damn I'm jonesing for some CoD4 right now, I haven't been able to play in a while since my broadband has been down. Another few days and my connection will be back up and I can start trying to get the gold AK again. DC93 how far off are you?

Still a long while off sadly, M16 is done and dusted and I'm on the AK with 91 headshots, after that; the G3. I love the gun but it's a bitch for headshots. tounge.gif How're you progressing?

I've got just over 70 for both the AK and the M16, all the rest have between 30 and 40, getting there icon14.gif I might focus on one rather than spreading it out, I need a red tiger on something to keep me going.

Oh hello!

I made a new video in my CoD4 dickery series.



In this video, I be a dick by spamming frag grenades all over Vacant. The only time I ever use 3x frag is on Vacant. It's crazy.

What's your gamertag? I've been looking for more CoD4 buddies, all the ones I have now only play clan matches/scrims, which I don't really care for.
