    I shall put these new tactics into practice tonight and see if I get any better at sniping (and if not go watch more of your vids). My problem is after 200 meters it's touch and go with me. Sometimes I line the shot perfectly and other times I fall a good 10-20 meters short and the target moves or another sniper picks me off. I think my major problem is I'm used to semi-auto snipers from COD, I'm not used to bolt-actions so the coming out of scope to chamber another round really throws me off.
     
    Okay how did you get that kill in the first DMR vid DX, with a relex sight at that? I couldn't even see the guy and didn't know you got a kill till it popped up. If that's how good that gun is then I'll definitely be working extra hard on unlocking it. Yea, if I ever figure out how to fly a helo I'm definitely not flying one when I'm in a game with you on opposite teams. You're freaking deadly with a RPG and I do not want to be on the receiving end of one of your rockets

    I quick joined this match and it was my first spawn... whattaknow?!
     

    This guy failed so bad it made for an easy shot!
     

    Sledge and I were trolling this guy that kept taking a jeep and rolling up to the same spot on the mountains of Golmud... before we lost I exacted some personal satisfaction
     

    Woo... that was close... I rarely miss, but if you hang around, you're dead.

    I don't even climb up the hill anymore. If you stay next to the hill, you're only exposed from one side.
     

    This one is my favorite. This clown kills me with an SMG and then stays there thinking I'm going to come back.
     

    Here is me paying Sledge back after he ended up on the other team and knew my favorite nesting spot... he tried to dance, but to no avail. XD
     

    Here is the power of the ACE-53 SV... that guy had to be pissed when it showed him what I killed him with. LOL
     
    Now for what I'm really good at... Killing choppers with an RPG:

    It didn't save in HD, but I dont feel like redoing it.

    Thats an interesting method. I usally see where the bullet hits and adjust elevation from there. Sniping someone on the move is satisfying but really difficult unless they are headed towards or away from you in a straight line. Hitting snipers and flag cappers is the way to go. There is nothing more satisfying than seeing your bullet drop straight into a small puff of red when you score that headshot. lol
     
    The best place to snipe is Hainan Resort. If you start on the Chinese side you just have to walk until you see the resort, prone and set your scope distance to 300 or 400. I cant remember which, but once you get the right one you should pop skulls camping the top of the resort with dead center crosshairs . I've gone 9-15 kills in a match without dying. You wont get much XP, but you'll do some damage to your sniper rifle progression. You just have to watch out for chopper/jet ditchers that get on top of that rusted ship... but if you keep an eye on that too you should take anyone out with ease becuase they are pretty exposed. I think the scope has to be set to 200 for that location.
     
    I marked it on the map... I think. Its been a while.

    This is a video of me sniping from that exact location:
     

     
    And heres a video of me on the other side of the map killing someone sniping from that exact location with my SUAV.
     

     
    I agree with DX, that location is definitely the best sniping spot. Aim for the rooftop for easy marksman ribbons.
     
    Moving targets are much more challenging. Its all a matter of finding out where the bullet will intersect with the guy's head based on his speed.. lol. I've gotten used to it tho.
     

     
    Aside from a 1,000 meter headshot, my most impressive shot IMO is this one at the 18 second mark.. I hit the guy while he was moving from 900+ meters away.
     

     
    Check some of my other Sniping videos Strider.. You'll notice my pattern, I spot every enemy first, set my distance for the rifle at the bottom of the screen, and then aim at the triangle. If I miss, I'll aim up or down slightly based on how far away he is and what my rifle is set for. If the guy turns out to be 480 meters away, I set my rifle for 500 and aim just below the triangle. Always make sure the vertical line of the scope is always lined up with the middle of that triangle, or the bullet will almost never hit the target if its over 200+ meters away. Setting the distance on the rifle is the biggest improvement over Battlefield 3. In BF3 you had to aim inches above enemies heads and always adjust for the bullet drop. But with that range / distance setting, bullet drop is way easier to manage now.

    COD will now have exoskeletons like in the movie Elysium.. Ok.. That could be cool, but aside from showing a bunch of stuff exploding, there was no reveal about what the actual plot of this game is. I'm guessing the USA invades another country? COD Advanced Warfare is being released on the all the old gen systems, so even though this trailer was from Xbox One, I'm guessing the multiplayer will be the exact same game again as Black Ops 2 and Ghosts. Same thing, new maps, some new weapons, still 6 vs. 6.. the only thing that could be different for the multiplayer this time is if they have wall climbing and large jumps. I'll pass on buying this game until I read reviews for the campaign, because I doubt I'll be interested in this multiplayer.
     
    Battlefield 4 and Star Wars Battlefront will be my multiplayer games of choice. Nothing beats teamwork. I'd rather have teamwork over never ending TDM any day of the week.
     
    Titanfall looks good from what I've seen of it, but they set themselves pretty high.. Titanfall 2 will have to be a better game, because if they release a sequel that is basically the same game again with 1 extra titan and different maps, they'll set themselves on the same course COD is on now.
     
     
     
    The best advice I can give you is to spot an enemy so they get that little red triangle. Aim for the dead center of that triangle and take a shot, if you miss, then aim just a bit higher and keep repeating. Either snipe other snipers at long distance because they are usually prone and good targets, or aim towards a flag. You can aim directly at the flag, find out the distance the flag is from you, then hit the down d pad until you are zero'ed in. If the flag is 300 meters away, stay in that area, set you rifle to 300 and aim dead center at the enemy triangle for a headshot. Another tip.. you can scope in on a team mate and see how far away they are too, set your rifle for that distance and start shooting at enemies near that guy.

    , when you're ripping off Halo you really have sunk to the bottom (don't get me wrong I have always liked the Halo series but that's just low).
     
    The one thing I hate about BF is bullet drop. Yes I got spoiled in COD but I honestly cannot snipe in BF with that freaking bullet drop and that's the one thing I really love to do in FPS games. I just can't figure out how to judge my distance and aim appropriately (and yes I have practiced in the test range and I'm damn good in the test range, in actual gameplay I suck). That's my only complaint about BF and it's minor at best since I do love the DMR's (yea I don't get it either but I can snipe perfectly with a DMR) and LMG's.
     
    The teamwork and various ways to gain xp are what make BF so enjoyable for me. I love that if all I want to do is drop ammo boxes, med kits, blow tanks up, or survey the land I can and I get credit for doing so. This is what cemented my love for Bad Company when I first played it (outside of the hilarious SP). I wasn't being stuck into specific roles, I could evolve to the situation and do what was best for my team (instead of being a corner camper and pissing off people (like DX )).
     
    I honestly do hope this game does well, more so for Sledgehammer's own success. Development studios have been closing left and right and I'd really hate to see another one go especially for a shitty COD game.

    Considering how good Ghosts looked in trailers and then how bad the actual game was (I have friends who bought and absolutely hate Ghosts MP, some have said the SP is alright) I'm reserving all judgement until we see actual in-game footage and gameplay videos. Even if it does interest me I'll most likely still not buy it, I'm done giving Activision money for the same game with different skins. 
     
    I'm not a fan of this 3 studio thing, the market is already over saturated with FPS games and not to mention with COD games. Activision is literally shooting themselves in the foot with the COD every year motif they've been following. You don't give your fans time to invest in any game since the next one is just a year away. Doesn't give you enough time to enjoy the game you just bought. Plus quality is really starting to fall in COD games, I've watched live streams on Ghosts and I'm quite honestly far from impressed with the multiplayer. They all still follow the COD4 motif and do very little to distinguish the game from one of the best FPS games I've ever played (I'll always love COD4 but since MW2 I have lost all interest in playing COD, hell the first Black Ops was a disappointment for me).
     
    This is why Battlefield does so well, not only is the game more solid in terms of gameplay but DICE doesn't release one every year also. Fans appreciate this as it gives them time to play the game, invest in the MP, and actually enjoy it until said time when the next one comes out. Plus lets face it, the multiplayer in BF is so much more fun.
  11. Strider Hiryu liked a post in a topic by DeathscytheX in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare   
    I have to laugh when COD fanboys try to bash battlefield, and they do it for 2 reasons. The first is that they've never played it before, and the second is because they completely suck at it. Their 12 year old pride get the best of them because they cant go 40-3, and they don't find it fun. If you've never played a BF game before, you're gonna suck pretty hard the first time you jump in. (I'll never forget how bad I was in BF2) It takes time to develop skill, and the beautiful thing is that you create your own play style that suits you best to be successful. The game focuses on teamwork instead of running around gunning down everyone. You could have the least kills on the team and finish with the top score and most xp because you supported teammates and played the objective. Quickscoping yields a 20% success rate at best, you can't outgun someone with a DMR using an SMG from long range, and you have to account for bullet drop... a COD fanboy's nightmare. 
     
    COD and BF really aren't even comparable to me, but Titanfall is in that same category. Even with less game modes and less weapons, its a crap ton more fun than COD has ever been since COD4. After looking at an IGN article I see there is cloaking as well... I would say thats ripping off Titanfall... but its actually just ripping off Halo. lol

    Destiny will be playable for attendees at this year's E3 convention. Here is 7 minutes of action packed gameplay showing off various guardian abilities.
     
    I like how they didn't put it in cinematic mode and left the HUD and health/shield meters in.

    Considering how much anime I've seen this is a tall order to ask of me (643 series, OVA, movies, and specials completed (according to MAL, that's somewhat off)). My tastes have changed considerably over the last couple of years (more so in the last 6) and whereas in the past it might of been action packed series or harem/fan service series now-a-days it's hard for me to choose my top 2 or 3 anime (also, like DX, my top 10 fluctuates as I see more and more series). My top 3 have stayed pretty consistent over the last couple of years so I'll list them and it's safe to say these will always be shows I find myself watching, even 10 or so years down the line.
     
    My number 1 choice would have to be Aria (the whole of the series, no just one season or the OVA). A series that has found it's way into my heart and refuses to leave. I love everything about this show. The art is amazing, the soundtrack is superb (I listen to it everyday while I sleep), and the characters are lovable (especially President Aria, you just can't help but love that cat). Yes, it's one of those cute girls doing cute things shows so it's not everyone's cup of tea (especially since there is no action and the story character driven). This is one of those very few shows that I watch when I'm in a foul mood, it immediately puts me into a better mood and completely relaxes me. I highly recommend this show to everyone as long as your okay with slice-of-life shows.
     
    My number 2 show is a show I never thought I'd like but after watching it at a friends urging fell in love with it immediately and that's Mushishi. Much like Aria I love everything about this show. The art (imo) is amazing, I love the soundtrack, the characters are amazing (Ginko is the man, no one can tell me differently), and the episodic nature of the show makes every episode enjoyable. Again this is another show that is on the slow side so don't go into it expecting great action sequences and what not. The show is centered around the relationship between Mushi and how they interact with nature. Like Aria I highly recommend this show to everyone and the second season just started airing here three weeks ago (much to my happiness, I never knew how much I missed this show still I started watching the second season).
     
    Those are my top two anime on my list at the moment. The third one would be a hard choice as it's tied between quite a few series and movies and I really don't want to choose between them. More so because I love all the shows equally and don't want to demote the others just because I had to choose one. As I said there's no action packed series or mech series here (surprising to a few I'm sure, being the huge Gundam and Mecha fan that I am) but as I said before my tastes have changed a lot in the last 6 years and shows like those just don't interest me much anymore (the exception here being Kill la Kill, this show is absolutely amazing and I don't care what anyone says. Those of you who enjoyed Gurren Lagann (a show I still have yet to see) would most likely enjoy it since the same studio did Kill la Kill). I never really got into the whole shounen genre mostly because shows that last more than 50 episodes are usually start taking a turn for the worst after that point (no I have not been watching One Piece, I still mean to get around to it but who has the time to watch 600+ episodes just to get caught up (I don't even know what ep number it's up to)).

    Yea Yaya has been talking about it non-stop on Twitter (as have Holly, Jessica, and Jesse). Can't wait to watch it when it airs. By the looks of the trailer we can expect one more guy at least but we're losing two cosplayers from last season (I know Monica isn't in this season due to school and I don't think they brought back Riki (Riddle) for this season). Yes, I follow all of them on Twitter (don't judge me).
     
    Heh, I stopped watching Top Shot because of the house drama. I missed the last season due to the freaking drama driving me away from it in the season before. Now I really wish I would of watched it. Sadly this is the problem with reality tv, they're trying to turn it into reality soaps and not give the viewers what they want. I stopped watching Survivor after the first season due to this (loved the first season but every season since has been a sad attempt to draw more people in with more drama).

    Considering how surprisingly good the first season was I'm hoping this season is just as good and it's about damn time. I've been going nuts waiting for this to start back up. Really want to know what happened with Irisa after everything went down the way it did.
     
    It's not surprising the game and show aren't really connected since the game takes place in whats left of San Fransisco (it does doesn't it? I mean the Golden Gate Bridge is on the cover of the damn game). It's be hard to connect the two since they're on other sides of the continent from each other. I wouldn't know much outside of what my friend was telling me since he plays it and watches the show (he told me there was a few connections but they were the ones you already mentioned in the last topic). Would be rather interesting if this season does connect the two together, are there any big events being planned in-game currently with the release of the new season so near?

    I've stopped watching a lot of my favorite gun building reality shows because they shift the focus from the builds to stupid workshop drama and fake issues that supposedly would make them miss deadline. Their newsfeeds and comment sections are filled with anger and such. When you're catering to certain crowds, they watch the show for the subject material, not some BS drama. That audience watches shit like survivor. I'm surprised they filled it will drama on the first season... normally they reel everyone in and then the following seasons they insert that garbage.
     
    In the final season of History's Top Shot they removed all the house drama and made it solely about competitive shooting. The fanbase loved it, the ratings grew by a double digit percentage, and then History cancelled it after that... it seems TV execs don't have a clue that people like informative, intelligent material about their hobbies. Not storylines about personal drama. Hell there is even a website you can go to to look up people that have been on some of these shows telling you how fake it is. American Guns was cancelled because the tv execs felt like they didn't have any more stories to tell... umm wtf? No one watched it for the stories, they watched it for the gunsmithing.

    I really liked the first season and I hope season 2 picks up the pace and incorporates some aspects of the game like the EGO system, Nim, the 99ers, Dark Matter, infector weapons, etc. Considering its a series that is connected to a game.. there are very few actual connections between the two properties. It almost feels likes its the same world but to different realities.
