Default New Player Checking in!

Hello to the RO2 community!

Old School DoD:S player checking in! I've always had a soft spot for WWII shooters and after playing endless rubbish modern set shooters I'm looking to come back to the 1940's!

One of the main reasons is I've always liked the class based system that worked in DoD, DoD:S and RO. Each class has its advantages/disadvantages against other classes which creates better team play in my opinion. When everyone is packing assault rifles that fire 500 rounds a minute it takes that away and seeing as most are built for consoles these days...I suppose they have to make it easy for the analog warriors

I'm actually looking for a clan for teamplay over ts/vent aswell as a server that doesnt have any of the follow; Ivan1, Ivan2, Ivan3, Ivannabeinyourpants, Ivannatakeadump etc etc.

I'm 24, from England, play rifleman and played DoD:S to a decent level back in the day on ED.

So yeah wheres the party at?

Just watch out for the guns...they'll get ya

Welcome!

I too come from DoD:S (rocket trooper specialist ). I think you'll enjoy this game a lot. Be sure to check out the beta for the new features which I feel add a lot to the game (plus the new beta map Mamayev is built for riflemen ).

For finding servers populated by lots of humans, do what I do: sort servers by population, look for a heavily populated one with a ping <150, check the lower right of the browser to see if there are a lot of names, if so, join .

Cheers,

Fafnir_6

If you were into DOD then this is the game for you in my opinion! Like you, I’ve got a soft spot for WW2 shooters and RO is really enjoyable despite not many people playing it.

I’m from the UK myself and my favourite servers which pretty much always have players and good ping are the “[40-1] Realism servers” and the “[2.FJg] Realism server”. Good bunch of regulars on each server.

Burgandy check out the First Cav, at thefirstcav.com, the LTC and I have been trying to introduce RO2 into the ranks more, a decent ammount of the unit has the game already, we just need more people to get them to play. Check out the website and you can reach me on steam at dfdfbacon. Also, RO2 isnt our only game, the unit also plays MW2, MW3, BF3, Minecraft and a whole lot more.

Welcome to Stalingrad.

Hi Mr B,

Saw you in the 40-1 server this evening - not got much to add to the recommendations above but good to see you here, and Spartanovka will grow on you - we came across a very spirited defence!!!

I am new too and have always been so fascinated by WW2, WW2 Germany (only the military part, not the ideolgies) and by my granpa's stories (he fought in North Africa and participated in the battle of El-Alamein, we are Italian). I ordered the game myself a couple of days ago and can't wait to see you ya'll on the battlefield!!

Wow what a response! I've been on the 40-1 mostly and theres some good team play to be had there

Krobar - I've seen some 1stCav players about so may drop by your website sometime

Fruitbat - Yes it was a pain getting to that last building! Damn you Ivan!

Sheps - I played that too! I loved the old DoD and was a die hard but eventually Source converted me glad it did though I was in a team called Team Asylum on ED and we had a blast! Anyway they messed that game up by introducing that rubbish stuff from TF2 with the 'Nemesis' and all that crap. Such a shame.

Anyway thanks for all your advice and I hope to see you on the battlefield!

key is to find servers under 150ms. if it's over, don't bother it will play like rubbish, just like any game would. Protip remember this is server side calculated so your ping will determine your lead time on your moving targets. Once you get dialed in, make sure to check your ping so you know when you are @ Xms you aim here, and when at Xms you aim there.
