Donncha has posted his account of tonights escapade here.
When I went online I was all on my lonesome, so as per usual hopped on to Squad Death Match. Erm…. to be honest I can’t remember much about the games… Arica Harbour maybe, did really badly? Something like that. I think I didn’t mesh into the opposition play style and so just got killed by the assault guys running amok on the ground, or wookies in the hills.
I even missed Donncha’s invite…… and then saw it 15 minutes later. After a couple of false starts we managed to find a game where it put us on the same team. It was hard going just the two of us. Eventually we pulled together a full squad of Donncha, Silent Dave, Minato88, and me. What a difference a full squad makes! On Nelson Bay I managed to get a number of kills using the Heavy MG until a sneaky engineer managed to duck my hail of bullets long enough to blast me to kingdom come with an AT-4.
We won those rounds, and we had a fairly easy time of it for the most part. Minato88 called it a night/afternoon after Nelson Bay, and Donncha after the defense of Port Valdez – which was something of a romp as they got A by using Destruction 2.0, but failed to get anywhere near B on the first base. Mainly because Donncha and Silent Dave were in construction manning the heavy weapons and I was at the fence smoking the area up. That’s not to say there weren’t any hairy moments. I had my fair share of deaths and kills….. and dog tags.
I’m now up to 117 dog tags.
I don’t know what the other team were playing at, but it certainly wasn’t Rush. When it was our turn to attack I switched to the Medic Laser Rifle class. I parachuted in and considered my options before hopping on a QUAAAAAAD. Then a random team mate jumped on the back. Okay….. let’s go! I took the left side of the hill, bombed it down there and swept around our tank that was acting as a rocket magnet. Smashed into the fence on the left side of B, hopped off, planted and got to the fence on B side. Four defenders later and B was destroyed followed shortly by A.
It was a case of rinse and repeat, with Silent Dave and I charging for one M-Com while our team went for the other. The only stumble was was the last bases where after getting to B via the pipeline a sneaky git shot us from the sky light. Our team took out both A and B though while we chilled out at the spawn.
The last round we played was Arica Harbour on defence. Our team did fairly shit. Yet again people milling around an armed M-Com, but not defusing. It gets tiresome running across the map because the donkey two feet away is too scared of ruining their K/D.
I started off as Assault, then changed to Recon using a sniper rifle to spot and mortar the enemy. Until we got to Last Stand – then it was Assault with the Shotgun Laser Cannon deal……. SURPRISE, BITCHES! They weren’t expecting that when they tried to get in at A. But we lost anyway.
A good couple of games, would have liked to have had a clean sweep, but it can’t always go your way. My K/D and Win/Loss haven’t moved again. Maybe I’ve peaked 😉
Peas and loaves.
