Why not? I think there are a lot of wolf ET-people and other multiplayer gamers here for a clan!

I would agree, but we can't start a clan without playing a few games as a team, and I definitely know that I haven't played with any Emutalk players yet. I know that Trotterwatch plays ET, but I never manage to catch a game with him...

EDIT : hah, a 1000th post :D

Congrats on your thousandeth post Dude :)

Yeah I play ET quite a lot, and am not too bad at it either (usually). I would like to start up an Emutalk clan, or at least arrange some games with many Emutalk users. Would be much more satisfying slaughtering those who you know :)

BTW, I'm considering changing from being a specialist Covert Op to another class, any suggestions? The only reason I am considering changing, is I am sick to death of newbies killing me with flamethrowers when I am wearing an enemy uniform!

Well, that won't happen in a clan at all, trott.

But first of all we need some members, and of course a clan-site.

Trotterwatch, my first class in ET was Covert Ops as well, but after a few weeks or so I got tired of it, mainly because it's only useful in a couple of maps, mainly Battery and Fuel Dump. The CO doesn't pose much of a threat to the other team on other maps.
I suggest moving to Engineer or Medic (my favourite class at the moment, although I get to play games as an Engineer as well, if there aren't too many of those on the team), they are useful on every map, and have better XP bonuses (Full Revive and Adrenalin for the Medic, Flak Jacket for the Engineer).

Oh, would anyone mind moving this one to the Gaming forum?

One question pops out of my mind, what is ET?

DuDe
September 5th, 2003, 16:43
It's a short for Wolfenstein : Enemy Territory. It was supposed to be an expansion pack to Return To Castle Wolfenstein, but iD decided to release it as a standalone game. It's very similar to RTCW's multiplayer, only with bigger maps and a bit better graphics.

Trotterwatch
September 5th, 2003, 17:27
Well, that won't happen in a clan at all, trott.

I hope not :) I think I will switch anyways, so I don't specialise in just the one class, probably best to be a good all rounder.

True, so what I think I will do is convert to either the Medic or Engineer class. Not sure which one yet, I played Medic a few times a while back, and found it pretty enjoyable though :) which is an achievement in itself. Though if needs be I will train up as an engineer, switching to C/O or Medic when needed.

I tend to steer clear of the soldier class, as for some reason I tend to associate that with n00bies running around firing off their flamethrowers in their own spawn area! Then again n00bie C/Os are also a pain, trying to snipe everything and generally being useless.

Well, as better players than myself have said, there's no such thing as a n00b weapon, there are only n00b players... A panzer and a flamethrower are the best choke points cleaners you can find, given a skillful player that uses them. Take the bank in Gold Rush, there's no better way to cleanse it up than a well placed panzer in the middle of the room, and then a flamethrower to kill whatever is left there. The problem is, that n00bs that join game go "ooooh, big weapon! let's see if it goes bang bang". Well, yeah, it goes bang bang alright :\

Trotterwatch
September 5th, 2003, 18:31
Yeah definately, one of the big damage weapons in the hands of someone good is a potential match winner. Speaking of gold rush, I always find that a nice smoke grenade being thrown into the bank helps cause confusion a plenty (especially amongst the inexperienced).

A great game though, with some great tactics making in it.

The lack of maps is a problem though. Even though the modding tools have already been released, most of the user created maps aren't that good. I hope Splash Damage ports some of the RTCW maps to ET, and tweaks them to make use of the different gameplay features in ET. Naturally, I would prefer a whole new map pack for ET, but given the fact that nor iD or Splash Damage make any money out of it, I don't see it coming.

Trotterwatch
September 5th, 2003, 19:40
Got to give them credit, for not only giving it away and making it standalone, but for also releasing the modding tools.

Sure some great maps will come out soon :)

Just played against the biggest lamer I have ever seen. First of all, we had no engineers on the Battery map, no way of getting into the installation, and no way of getting uniforms.

So I switch, build the ramp, capture the bunker and carry on. He then changes to engineer along with a few others, leaving me to change back to Covert Op (to open the door at the back). Things didn't work out, and we were back at square one (though I should add I was killed by friendly fire, - this idiots fault btw).

So instead of the team keeping all the engineers, they all decided to become field ops? FFS, field ops? So again I go engineer, and again I build the ramp.

All the time the team are shouting that they need Covert Ops, "A great deal of good without a uniform" I say. To which this idiot replies that there are loads of uniforms on the beach, and basically begins to hurl a load of abuse at me, calling me a N00Bie etc Of course there were no uniforms on the beach. Even at the end of the game he keeps hurling abuse, so I just left. Couldn't be arsed dealing with him.

So if anyone encounters this person, feel free to TK them a bit :) NoPpy is his name.

So anyways, anyone up for a game tomorrow, if so leave the time and the place (IP prefered) and I'll be there.

Post here if you want to join!

Also created a temporary site of the clan:

I'm in. Getting fed up of playings games with a team of complete and utter incompetent n00bie buffoons. You know the type that open the back door on Battery (as an Axis soldier) because they were exploring... despite about 50 warnings not to. Or the ones that run onto the beach with a panzerfaust or flamethrower... grrrr, should just ban the whole of AOL that should stop most of em!

ShadowPrince
September 6th, 2003, 16:22
Count me in too :)
On what servers do you play guys ?

vampireuk
September 6th, 2003, 20:04
Running onto the beach as a axis member is just retarded, with all that cover why on earth would you need to get up close >_<

I love been a engineer, the M1 is a bit difficult to get use to. With the grenades though you can scatter a group of enemys, usually into several piles :D

The soldier class is slightly irritating, it takes quite a while to build up the skill to move with heavy weapons at a normal pace. Although with some of the positions I set the mobile MG in it was well worth it :happy: set up on the top of a hill and mowed down the axis team as they went for the train :D

I've decided from now on I am being a medic. Played the class tonight and not only did I enjoy myself, but I was the best medic + best fragger, lol What I like best about being a medic, is that you are not given a wimpy POS gun, but you're given a decent one instead.

Oh and when you're a medic you also don't get teamkilled as much. However I had a few complaints from idiots, for kill>reviving. They had less than a quarter of life left, no enemy around.

What is best? Waiting for health packs to replenish, or a quick kill revive with a full revive syringe. Bit of a no brainer if you ask me!

I must say that I had some very thrilling games with Trotterwatch yesterday, and got my ass handed to me when he was playing on the opposite team :)

Trotterwatch
September 16th, 2003, 22:14
Yeah, it was a good game. I think me and Dude were the only good players there though :) (or above average anyways).

We have to try and start up an Emutalk clan, we'd probably do pretty well. A lot more fun playing with/against people you know.

/me thinks I shouldn't run into enemy minefields though...

I think we should create good names for the members (i.e. [Emutalk]Mightyrocket and [Emutalk]Trotterwatch are just too long!).

Age of Empires and Starcraft for me... I used to play Battlefield 1942 a lot, but now my graphics card broke down... I can't really play BF with an Nvidia Vanta 8 mb....

Anyway, as for the clan's name, no one said that the clan should go by the old [Clan's Name]Player's Name convention. How about a [E]Player's Name[T]?
Example :
[E]DuDe[T]
That's pretty much how my nickname would've looked like with the clan's tags.

hmm sounds really cool ,emutalk clan, but even if this was to work (which it probaly did already),
there will still be noobs around.ET isnt that easy
you know.you cant avoid the noobs.

Trotterwatch
September 22nd, 2003, 11:06
There are usually enough decent players around to make a game of it, plus if you are in a clan you can eventually just play clan matches against recognised non lamers.

Had my first proper map as an Engineer yesterday. I was on the goldrush level, when everyone was either:

A) Soldier
B) Cov Op
C) Field Op

There was also 2 medics, me and someone who had just joined. So I was in a quandry, I was a level 4 medic but I had to change to an engineer as it was obvious no one else was going to do it.

I repaired the tank many many times by myself, I blew up all the barriers, repaired the truck. Then I manned the machine gun to help people get the gold, apart from the fact non of them were able to. So I got one of the gold crates too :) Ended up a level 4 engineer on that one map! Not a great achievement seeing as I was playing with and against some atrocious players.

mightyrocket
September 22nd, 2003, 14:19
We require 2 experienced medics. I'll be one, but we also require another one.
* mightyrocket looks at Trotterwatch

Trotterwatch
September 22nd, 2003, 14:26
Yep I'll be a medic. I am adaptable to play Medic, Engineer and Cov Op too. So should the need arise (which it shouldn't) I am able to switch pretty easily.

Trotterwatch
September 22nd, 2003, 18:08
Just had another game with Dude, there was one lamer though who seemed to have complained about Dude for no reason (constantly). The team as a whole were a bit useless, all the more reason for an Emutalk clan methinks.

I annoyed one person in the game when I first joined, by suggesting they not deploy airstrikes if they couldn't aim them correctly, lol

vampireuk
September 22nd, 2003, 18:29
I'm a good engineer and a god with the mobile MG-42 :D

The ******* stepped on my mine, and complained! How bloody noobish is that? I still don't understand why server admins wouldn't use the new feature in the 1.02 patch that disables complaints for stepping on friendly mines, it should be a default choise in my opinion...
Anyway, I learnt a valuable lesson today: Sometimes, the Grenade Launcher's grenades bounce way too high :D I think that Trotterwatch has learnt that one as well :)
It was a good game on some maps though, the team kind of cooperated on Oasis... On Gold Rush all hell broke loose, I was TK'ed by this annoying arse when I tried to get the gold (and later he complained when I killed him with a grenade launcher, when I was evidently shooting at the kraut that was sitting inside the tank, doh), no one provided air strikes support, no one threw smoke canisters into the bank. Bleh.
There's nothing I want more than some good clan matches against some good clans.

vampireuk
September 22nd, 2003, 21:00
We also need a decent field op or two, I fricking hate running out of MG ammo and nobody around to reload me >_<

mightyrocket
September 23rd, 2003, 16:16
A list of current members:
Mightyrocket (medic)
Dude (engineer/medic?)
Trotterwatch (medic)
Shadowprince (?)
Vampireuk (soldier)

We require soldiers and field-ops. Covert-ops aren't very important at the moment, but you can always ask if you wannabe one. The most important are currently the field-ops. We also require some decent soldiers (preferably with some flame-thrower experience).

I'd join the clan but:

A. I'm poor at every game ever invented
B. I can't afford any games
C. I'm Welsh

Trotterwatch
September 23rd, 2003, 18:50
A. I'm poor at every game ever invented

Reason one for not allowing you in.


B. I can't afford any games

The game is totally free, so nope that ain't an excuse.


C. I'm Welsh

change me to a soldier with a MG-42 :P

Bump!

And Trotter and Dude can vouch for my MG-42 skill ;)

Trotterwatch
September 25th, 2003, 21:15
And you can vouch for my general all round brilliance, hehe I wish.

At one point when I shot you with the pistol, I actually took my knife out and tried to get you with that. Due to the way you were lying though I couldn't get you properly, so I just had to settle for shooting you in the head, lol

A great game though (a shame I had to go) :(

mightyrocket
September 25th, 2003, 21:19
(a shame I had to go) :(
And, Trotterwatch you are not the only one :(

By the way, next time I'm sure I'll be a medic, because I tested my soldier skills again, and I bet my little sister could act better :P

DuDe
September 25th, 2003, 21:55

vampireuk

Just imagine the carnage if we were on the same team :D

Trotter, I heard a knife behind me but by then it was obviously too late to do anything :D


And you can vouch for my Grenade Launcher skills

Damn those nades of yours! :P :D

DuDe
September 25th, 2003, 22:47
On the next games, we should really try and play on the same team... After all, a clan without real teamwork is not a clan.

vampireuk
September 25th, 2003, 22:54
Yeah next time I'll make sure I end up on the same team, just be sure to watch my ass when I'm getting set up :P :D

Enemy Territory, go to www.bygames.com click downloads and download the game. It's completly free, join some games and play your ass off until you are use to the game and get pretty good at it.

Then join the #emutalk channel on efnet and msg one of us so we can see you in action:)

Harhar, a emutalk clan? Awesome. I have been playing ET since it came out, so I have some mad skillz. I would like to join. ;)

Err. and if you guys would like to know.

I bet I can pwn vampire's ass with MY MG skillz. :P
I am good at being a medic/soldier/engineer

vampireuk
October 2nd, 2003, 19:34
Right so far we have

Vampireuk: Soldier
DuDe: Engineer
Trotterwatch: Medic
MightyRocket: Medic
Raede: Engineer

I think we should promote this a little bit more than we are doing too :D

DuDe
October 2nd, 2003, 20:23
We definitely need a decent Field Op, especially since medics start with only one ammo pack.

Falcon4ever
October 2nd, 2003, 21:23
ET is really cool, i could help i think :P

I prefer Covert Ops (cuz of sniper)
and maybe soldier or fieldop cuz of smg

vampireuk
October 2nd, 2003, 21:45
I'll need a field op to constantly feed me too if we end up on the defending team. I'll keep those choke points clogged with corpses :D

Or if we don't need a soldier that round I can always swap over to a more suitable role :)

Raede
October 3rd, 2003, 01:49
Hehe, can't wait to start playing with you guys. :)

And vamp, be a hooker. We need more of them in our clan!
