Here are three reasons that BF3 players’ online skill would get them dishonorably discharged (or killed) from the real military.
Man this was some funny sh*t xD.
I agree with #1! Its just so full of win! I'm sick of those "snipers" who rush in in the middle of the chaos with a effin pistol! And what about those "support" guys who never share their ammo with you? God!
"And what about those "support" guys who never share their ammo with you?" Those guys irritate me the most. Every time I end picking up a kit off the ground, and usually it's recon, which I don't like using. :(
@Iroquois_Pliskin because class based multiplayer is becoming a failed concept because lately more people just look out for themselves. I am not sure why but just looking out for yourself is becoming the norm, no matter if the multiplayer is classed based
^^ Check out society. It's all about looking out for ol' #1. Only makes sense it would happen in games too.
I'm a Marine in real life and I do all those things. I do suicide dives with the jets too. Semper Fi lol
@above if my team is helping then I give out ammo. If you are capturing a point, ill put out ammo. If you just killed a guy with me, ill put out ammo. if you are running around trying to play team deathmatch on Conquest well go eff yourself lol Same with medic. sitting there camping doing nothing helpful for the team, enjoy spawning somewhere.
The running around like headless chickens thing makes me laugh, I wish a BF or COD game will fix that issue because if the americans or british did that in a real battlefield in 2004 then the Iraqi's would have actually won a skirmish in Bush and Blair's campaign. But the Americans and British didn't do things like the hotshots in BF and COD. They camped in their fire fights, and won. Which brings me to the point of camping, and snipers, the headless chickens are always complaining about them and then kick them for performing what is the only realistic tactic in Battlefield and COD. That is the mentality of most, not all, players these days.
@RedDragan I was in the Marine Corps from 95 to 99, and I received infantry training. It drives me nuts having people scream in my ear about "camping" when using the recon class when I'm consistently marking targets for other opponents and using the advantage of the long range lens to verbally communicate what the opponents are doing and where they are, as well as of course picking of some of them. I do not stay stagnant in one position; you will get killed constantly doing that. I use the class in a way that incorporates its strengths. I guess the hive mind mob just wants everyone to pick the assault class and blindly charge forward. I usually play with a friend of mine who is a former Army Ranger and sniper. Less headaches for me that way.
I meant to say "marking targets for other teammates..." Typo.
Number 2 had me laughing out loud. Operation "broken legs hostage bait" :)
I liked this part: "Hopefully I don’t have to explain to you why it’s impossible for people in real life to spawn friends out of their butthole"!
That made me laugh hysterically.
That was fun to read. No. 1 sadly explains pretty much the behavior of some players in Battlefield. If I'm running out of ammo, and you're an assault sitting next to me and I ask for it (point at you and press the spot button) you should be able to see this on the minimap with ease. I shouldn't really have to jump up and down, shoot you, knife you, frag you just so that you can finally recognize what I'm trying to say. Some people don't know how to properly ask for supplies like ammo, repair assistance or health kit and some can't see this in order to assist accordingly.
Usually when people don't give ammo it's for one of two reasons: a) They're noobs. Don't know how to give ammo yet/ don't know they can. I try to forgive these... But too many noobs gets annoying fast! b) They're selfish assholes who's logic tells them that less ammo for you = more kills for them.
Hmm, how many reasons can you think of for a Call Of Duty Player getting the same treatment? I can think of a few... Regardless, pretty funny article.
LOL that was actually a great read
One reason why BF players would be welcome in the Real Military: Re-spawning.
#2 tactics, when in doubt, blind your enemy with a flashlight.
Haha, I think even just running around with a .50 cal sniper rifle and using it the way we do in MP would get us kicked.
It would probably get you a dislocated shoulder as well. If of course you were strong to lift it like that in the first place.
LMGs are also not as light as a feather, either. I've lugged around the M240G for miles through sand. Some are a "two-man-carry" weapon in real life, but they are evidently easily carried while sprinting for miles in videogame land.
#1 is for people who don't know how to play BF games. But other than that yeah, pretty funny. :)
lmfao yeah i actually wonder sumtimes if i could go on the real battlefied and be successfull but nah id be killed in 0.003 seconds
I'd be fine in the real military. My K/D is above 1.50. Therefore I can kill 1 and a half people before I die :)
My Win/Loss ratio is 2.0, so chances are I can win WW3 on my own.
lmfao if you think you can last in military jus from playin some video games ROFLMFAO to you
Everytime I hear someone said games like Battlefield or COD "realistic", I just laugh. And then TV ads keep trying to advertise those games as so realistic.
So you're saying Battlefield 3 is unrealistic?... o.O And yeah, if you die of course you won't respawn, but who'd be playing a game online if you died once and pretty much never could play MP again? Rofl, be realistic dude! That's retarded to say it's not realistic because it's a game. What a joke.
hehe... no he's saying, real life could learn from BF3.
How can it be realistic? If you die in the real world battlefield, you don't respawn. That already made the game unrealistic.
Imagine a future FPS offering players ultimate realism...one time only multiplayer experience! If you die then access to multiplayer is locked out forever. :P That would be very intense.
Play some of the old ghost recon games on team survival that was some good times. I miss the old recon games the ones this gen all suck. You get one life, no recharging health, and no ammo pick ups. The only way to get more ammo is the pick up a gun from a dead enemy good times lol.
Your arms and legs don't magically reconstitute themselves if you hide behind a wall for a few seconds in real life either Unless you are a T1000. My main issue is with how slowly magazines empty in all games. In real life an M4 takes a few seconds to empty on full auto. Military games also don't show you how to maintain a gun.
That's why it's unrealistic. It's only a game. But in games, it has to change the rules. If the game tries to teach you how to maintain a gun, gamers will complain they don't care because they rather shoot the gun to figure out how it works. If military based game only has one life which is the first rule trying to be realistic, then every gamer will have to be very careful on how they run around and shoot at each other because if anyone dies, he gets kicked out. I remember there were some games in the past that had such rule but gamers don't like it because everyone has to be sure careful and play very slowly because every movement could be the last. But gamers don't want having to deal with one life rule because it's more fun to keep respawning and go crazy on the battlefield. Here's an idea to have some balance. If gamers get killed, they can't respawn back, for say 10 minutes. This gives more freedom from having one life and also teach the gamers to value their virtual life on the battlefield.
@Vortex3D If you want to play "realistic", play Arma 2 muliplayer. Sure you re spawn after several seconds but in some server you have a limit to how many time you can re spawn. The most realistic/annoying thing is that you respawned at your base (no squad spawning)...which is usually tens of miles away from the nearest action and would take minutes to get there, that if you're not killed by random enemy along the way there. Yeah there are vehicles at the base but the same problem in the article, #3, also occurs in this game. I got myself a Bradley one time and it still took me nearly 10 minutes to get to combat zone. By the time I reached the zone, it was already taken by team mates and they are on their way to another hostile city-which another tens miles away. Then, my Bradley ran out of gas. Sigh... You can spawn at command vehicles near the combat zones. Even so it is still a mile two away from the enemy since the game's sim setting means a rocket's effective range of 600m is actually does mean that. So no one would put their spawn vehicle that close. It's a fun (up to a point) game but the long walk to the nearest hotspots with the ever present sense danger from random encounters along the way does make it overwhelming at times.
Played the beta for Battlefield 3 and played a lot of COD, now I know how to handle a rifle and have practiced the art of respawn! Now to go and use those skills in real life, ahhh damn. Funny this article just came up because Im leaving to go to the Army in 3 days. GET SOME! And no I aint American Im English lol.
you don't know how to shoot a rifle by playing COD or BF, isn't it obvious??? it takes å lot more practice than that! especially when the recoil in COD is sub zero
In the very same sentence he wrote that, he also wrote that he learned how to properly respawn. And you think he was serious...
Haha you thought I was serious? Oh man, you've got a lot to learn. And I have already shot rifles and shotguns.
Give a real M16A4 rifle to a hardcore CoD: Black Ops player & tell him to reload to a new magazine & then squeeze off a few rounds. This is his face: " =/ " Dude wouldn't have a f*cking clue.. lol, he'd have no choice but to hand the rifle back to you. Modern Warfare in video games & real life do not mix well at all lol..
"Whelp, seeing as how you failed to reload, you've been pwned. Prepare to be tea-bagged."
Nice article. Not being able to re-spawn would be a bit of a problem alright.
Obviously video games are unrealistic. One death and u lose forever does not sound fun at all. Dice made BF3 as realistic as it could get before it got TOO realistic!
ahh *cough cough* its a game btw?
i lol'ed while reading all of this
I'd melee a guy while he was prone and then T-Bag him then post on YouTube. I'd never do that in a video game though...
i agree with the waiting for vehicles to respawn. In 1943 people would always wait on the carrier for a plane. Also i hate it when the majority of the team is a sniper or the none of them even do the job healing or destroying tanks when their supposed to
I can't stand when support people dont throw out ammo.
I run around as recon using my pistol whats wrong with that?Thats how I get most of my headshots.Well at least till I get my PDW back.It pisses me off when my squad is full of recon guys without 1 forward spawn.I prefer being a medic in any game that allows it though.I just enjoy picking up my teammates more then killing people don't know why.
That was funny. But the real war is much worse. You get soldiers that have kids, then they go fight in another countrynobody gives a toss about, to fight for freedom? for who? and then they get killed and the family state that they died protecting us.? WTF./ No real soldiers are puppets used by governments to push an agenda.
There are a lot of different reasons a soldier joins the forces. They don't actively tell themselves "Imma be a tool for an oppressive government." Neither do their families when they don't come home from their deployments.
Goo and Funny Article!
Hmm in real life you'll be booted out / thrown in jail and court marshalled and executed for throwing a nade on an mcom station where your squad mates are trying to plant a bomb.
What about CoD players? :D
Its ashame there are no respawns in real life. :( Number 2 is what I always used to do in BF2, parachuting behind enemy lines and planting C4s on their comm towers whilst taking out some unaware opponents with a silenced pistol and knife.
dont forget that they will all want to be snipers
1 Reasons BF Players Would Get Booted From the Real Military No respawns in real life!
You would get booted if you were planting the bomb at the MCOM station and started spinning in circles at the same time!
The problem with class based online multiplayer is that (some) people choose the gun rather than the class. If you pick a class, you should pick it to utilise it to its fullest, sadly many people purely use some classes just to snipe without spotting or kill without providing ammo.
Maybe it's just because I have common sense, or maybe because I don't like shooters, but this "editorial" seems like it's written for the sake of having something to write about. BF is a game. If anyone seriously thinks they can cut it in the military by playing a game, they need help.
All I can say is if a shooter was actually like real war, it wouldn't be fun to play.
Why would this article even need to be written? If you somehow think you could make in it warfare because you play video games, you should go to play real warfare and die.. tool
and here comes another report from a total noob COD fanboy trying his/her best to bash bf3 which is a 10/10 game if not for EA's Origin
