    What's the deal with League Play? We were supposed to get some cool stuff at the end of Season 1, but we got nothing!

    Also, I must say the whole league ranking system is retarded for solo players. The matchmaking system was supposed to put you in a lobby with people of similar skill, but you get placed into teams with players far below your skill. If it wasn't league, i wouldn't care. However, when your team is pulling you back with 0.1-0.4KDR (compared to your 2.5+), you are unable to win and progress on the ladder.

    Somehow it feels like they introduced the league just as another way of good advertisment for the game pre-launch.

    Made a new playercard that I'm pretty happy with and since I get a lot of comments about it in game I figured I would post a picture here to share.



    On my MSMC:



    ADS, same gun:



    And on the M8A1:

    I commented on this earlier. The TDM league seems to gauge your performance with the overall factor being wins and then how well you do. I went better than 4-1 with well over 20 (normally over 30) kills in my 5 ranking games and I got put in the silver league because the other people were all going like 1-15. The Ranking for the League in TDM is a joke, unless you play with a team the entire time.

    @Justintime -> That is a great Fry and an amazing Penny Arcade.

    The shit our opponents are calling down from the heavens is straight up gruesome, with hilariously overwrought titles and insane audio accompaniment. I don’t even know what it’s called, but they can summon something that sounds like a rancor being forcibly digitized. It completely disconnects all the important parts of my brain; the fear is so vast and textured that it takes all of my consciousness just to feel it. We have endeavored to contain this paralytic scenario in today’s comic strip.

    Quick question on acheivements guys. Currently playing this on Ps3....completed the campaign on Hardened and now trying to do all the trophies. I know i'll eventually have to complete all the levels on Veteran, but when i do this do i need to do it as a campaign or can i just level select and choose veteran? I ask this as i did the 'Good Karma' trophy on level select as i was collecting all the intel but i got no trophy so i guess certain acheives must be done on a story run? thanks.

    That is great.

    Hellstorm Missiles sound scary.

    I got a Swarm out of a care package two games in a row, against the same 'clan' (just friends who had their area code in their clan tag and were partied up, seemed like cool guys) they were complaining about that. I love how the 'scariest' named thing (Hellstorm Missile) isn't that terrible, but the worst kill streak (Swarm) doesn't sound bad.

    And if you want to talk audio, the scariest sounding killstreak is easily the Warthog. That thing sounds amazing.

    And that is how it sounds in real life by the way.

    Yes I understand that. I'm just surprised they were able to render it that well (I play on the 360) with everything else going on.

    @Bozzna -> I'm sick of Turbine and Hijacked, even though I do well on them. I want more Raid since half the time I do amazing and the other half I do poorly, I need to practice more.

    Just got to finish getting BlingBling for ARs and SMGs then Pistols and I'm done, finally. Pistols are going to be the worst I think, but a Diamond Kap-40 with Diamond Tac-Knife is going to look amazing.

    Anyway, anyone done Headshots for the SMR yet? I cannot get headshots with the thing for the life of me... I'm not sure what I need to change to fix that. I've put on the hybrid sight, tried silencer, tried foregrip, tried no foregrip... I'm happy if I get 1 per match at this rate when everything else I'm frustrated if I only get 5...

    I didn't know you knew that it sounded that way, some people don't!

    As for the SMR, I had to mix it up a bit to get head shots with it and the FAL for gold. I did it two ways, both of which I'm not proud of:

    1. Target Finder - This is a fucking nub attachment that needs to be removed from the game but for all intents and purposes it works for headshots. Just aim at the mid top of the boxes and pop off a double click.

    2. Laser Site / Select Fire - Then proceed to make a run and gun build and run around with it like an SMG. Aim high and shoot from the hip. It's a spray and pray tactic that actually gets a good amount of kills and headshots surprisingly. Just expect to get out shot by smg/shotgun users who are decent.

    I hated that I had to resort to those styles of playing but hey, I want my diamond guns. Also, get ready to have people cry for days at you with either of those builds. The only other time I have heard more bitching was when I was leveling rpgs for camos.

    One last thing, which you probably already know but I'll mention it just in case. When you get to the 150 kills with no perks and 150 kills with no attachments. Prestige your weapon and do both of those camos at the same time.

    Yea I'm done with LMG, Snipers, and Shotguns, and only have a couple ARs and a couple SMGs to finish.

    I go play hardcore kill confirmed when I have no perks or attachments because the guns don't really feel weak like they do in core without attachments and people in hardcore seem to never use equipment so I don't 'feel' the lack of engineer.

    I have the FAL gold (was easy, I like semi-autos), the SMR just feels like it fires slower regardless of what I do, and it bounces so much if I don't slow down, I bounce it right over their head, even if I have a foregrip and silencer on it. As well as flinching when getting shot means you lose with the SMR.

    I started running Silenced SMR for range and Kap-40 w/tacknife for close stuff. That combo pisses people off like you wouldn't believe, especially since the kap-40 is better than most SMGs.

    I suppose I should work on diamond launchers as well, but finding player controlled killstreaks for the second one is nigh impossible.

    I'm surprised by how much fun is to play hardcore TDM, game gets so much better! If you haven't played hardcore, you should.

    Hardcore is cool, it's like a whole different game. I get called a "wall banger" a lot in HC though simply because I always pursue a target I've shot at that takes cover. Except in HC it gets you a kill more often than not.

    Still though, most of my homies play core tdm/kc so I stick to that to stay sharp.

    And after a long time of deliberating with myself about using the Kap40 (since it kills me so often) I gave it a go.....

    It's completely overpowered, especially in the hands of someone who is decent at the run and gun. That gun kills in like 1-2 rounds and if you ADS it produces headshots like magic. Here is a clip of how broke it is when someone as average as me uses it -



    postscript: I don't use laser anymore, it was just my current unlock at the time. I now use long barrel and have it prestiged twice and it's gold. That's how bullshit it is.

    Akimbo KAP-40s are even worse, but I prefer the Tac-Knife so I can do silent kills, but yes pistols are extremely powerful, both the Kap-40, the B3R (3 round) and the first one is actually very good (two bullet kills chest and up) if you have a trigger finger.

    Yeah the 5-7 is nasty but I'm not a huge fan of the B3R honestly.

    I tried akimbo Kap40 for like one round and didn't really like it. I use ADS quite a lot with it and missing that key element made me not care for the extra bullets.

    Hey Justin did you see this easter egg yet?
