Battlefield Tweeters

A lot of Battlefield players are also on Twitter, here’s a few of them:

This is by no means an exhaustive list but if you play Bad Company 2 check out these guys and tell them Donncha sent you! Many of these people have Youtube channels too and I’ll add them later but in the meantime check out this list and of course dontrevivemebro.com.

Had some great games with David and Bedo…

Had some great games with David and Bedo Empire (Was that his username? I forget, sorry!) on Bad Company 2 last night.

Like others in the Bad Company 2 community we’re playing using our “secondary accounts” so we’re starting from scratch again. Problems with match making continue and the two of us were dumped into a game defending on Valparaiso against 2 level 50s and a level 42 player. It was 2 vs 3 and the result was never in doubt but hell, we put up a fight! I wish I was recording because we had lots of fun. Despite their high levels, they were rubbish helicopter pilots, just hovering in place. I got a nice rocket straight up into the vehicle without a tracer dart.

After David did a call out for help Empire joined us and on attack we took the first base quickly, and managed to get one crate on the second before the other team were joined by a clan of high level players. It was something like 3 vs 8 then so we went looking for another game.

Unfortunately stats weren’t recorded for our last game. I went 19/8 and we were the best squad despite having us low level players, without magnum ammo on the squad. I made it to level 1, unlocked a vehicle spec and a shotgun and they were all lost. Luckily the ammo box I unlocked in the previous game stayed but it’s disappointing. I couldn’t care less about losing stats on my main account because I’ve unlocked everything (but some of the recon weapons) but for raw recruits it’s hard. *sob*

I’m sorta liking the AEK now, even without magnum ammo.

Circle Strafing on Oasis

This is a preview of a Bad Company 2 gameplay video I’ll be uploading next week. I just wanted to show that it is possible for anyone to circle strafe in a helicopter. It just takes a bit of practice!

Thanks Killerbelf and Redd_dragons for getting in the helicopter with me, and to Muddledmuppet who joined us later!

I can circle strafe

How long is Bad Company 2 out? March last year isn’t it? Well, Gavin said he learned how to circle strafe the AH-64 and I decided to learn how too. With help from Geoff’s video above I figured it out.

Basically, point at where you want to circle around, press right on the left stick which will strafe to the right. Then with the right stick push left and up-down adjusting the nose to keep it centered on the target. The effect of pushing the right stick adjusts the rotar at the back of the helicopter, thus turning it. (I think that’s right, I need to spend more time in Onslaught perfecting it.)

Oh, full throttle the whole time too!

PBR Bug on Operation Hastings too

Coyno joined a game against cheaters using the PBR glitch to drive a boat under the map on Operation Hastings. So, not only Hill 137 then. Hope it gets fixed soon.

Bad Company 2 Oasis Helicopter Rage

This is 5 minutes out of a very long 49 minute Bad Company 2 game I played with Duck and DrunkinDunkin on one base on Oasis. I wasn’t in the helicopter, a player with over 6000 helicopter kills was piloting it and tore up our defenses. Thankfully the rest of his team weren’t so good. 🙂

I’d love to hear if you have any tips for Oasis. It’s one map I really have rarely done well in. I think it was Cards or gt who tweeted that he gets on to the AA gun before any blueberries get there to take down any incoming helicopters. Could have done with your help in this game!

PS. Check out the first episode of DON’T REVIVE ME BRO! podcast!

Bad Company 2: new site and YT commenter

I’m glad to see Paul finally posted a BfBC2 video on his blog. It’s a great montage of clips from the Vietnam expansion (hell of a lot better than my unlisted first commentary!) Go leave a comment and give the video a thumbs up!

And in other news, a new WordPress.com blog called In Bad Company has been launched by Chris! Expecting good things from him as he did the guest commentary on my last video.

On a personal note, it’s great to see the Bad Company 2 community grow stronger on WordPress.com!

I joined Dvotee and TheFingersHurt on Xb…

I joined Dvotee and TheFingersHurt on Xbox tonight for Bad Company 2 Vietnam but unfortunately TheFingersHurt got kicked off by his lousy Internet connection after about 5 minutes of play.

After that it was Dvotee and myself for a while, and every single game we joined was a losing one! They were games of conquest and our team would almost always be down to it’s last legs:

Starting Tickets Ending Tickets
18-101 0-48
69-157 0-56

So we helped turn the tide but not fast enough and we were out manned a number of times and never had a full game.

Our final game was rush and we were 8 against 10 with 5 members of the SNV clan on the other side. I was defending one crate when I was literally bombarded with bullets and grenades. It’s recorded, hopefully it’ll make a good and hectic clip!
Thanks Coyno for joining us for that game. Sorry we lost!

Finally, after reading this I decided to try marksmen LMG training and the same perk on the engineer’s kit and I think it helped. The “infinite ammo” of LMGs helped too! 🙂

The Triple Dees: David, Duck and Donncha

David posted this video earlier today. It’s a triple commentary by himself, Duck and me and I have to say it was the most enjoyable commentary I’ve ever recorded!

Thanks David for doing the editing and recording bits! It was a lot of fun and something I’d love to do again.

I joined a private match organised by Nick and others last night. Boy, were they tough games! Nick was a busy bee doing admin work but I have no excuse. I was simply outplayed by Cards and everyone else. Even Conor, who normally does quite well felt the pressure and we departed our last game, me with a KDR of 0-9. Ouch. I appreciate the invite, but I probably shouldn’t have joined!

Still, got some good clips, hope to have them uploaded in the next few days.
