Thanks Geoff for the link. It’s much appreciated, especially after a less than successful night’s play yesterday. I blame a late start and general tiredness. Onwards and upwards.

In Bad Company 2 swap classes with your medic if he dies so you can revive him! Thanks Geoff for the tip, and David for the pointer to the video!

Today is Paddy’s Day (Not Patty’s Day!), it’d be great to have a game where everyone ran around as leprechauns today wouldn’t it? 🙂

Modern Warfare 2 and Bad Company 2 were a complete fail last night. I got mowed down in MW2 by everyone else, and in BC2 I joined the game as a medic only to discover I had one squad mate who quickly disappeared and wasn’t interested in playing as a team.

Oh, and I unlocked the defibrillator and the enhanced medkit. Reviving downed team mates was useful though it’s a hard job.

Still, at least I got a positive KDR in one game when I manned the gun on a tank!

So basically, the person at the top of the scoreboard is the person who’s played their class the most effectively. They’re the guys who healed the most teammates, or blew up the most enemy tanks, or kept the front line supplied with ammo. Basically, they’re not the people who are best with their guns, but the people best at helping their friends. And that’s an important dynamic.

From the Rock Paper Shotgun review of Battlefield Bad Company 2.

Woah, couple of good games of Bad Company 2 there. And someone actually had their mic on. Thanks Lars for all the revives. Definitely great to hear your squad mate.

I played as medic too as the first game was defense and after that I wanted to unlock the defibrillator (spell that without a spell checker!) but our squad had one sniper who at one stage was the only surviving member of our team so Lars and I spawned on him running until I realised he was running the wrong way! Cursing we started running towards the bombs and a good 20 seconds later entered the fray. First I got shot, then I heard Lars confirm his death too. Oops.

Our sniper was still sniping from miles away though. By the island on Isla whatever-it-it’s-called when we had moved up to the last target. Maybe he was doing some good but I doubt it and forgot to check his score. *grrr*

Unfortunately we lost but it was a blast. It’s strange the camaraderie created from a shared experience online with total strangers.
