Well I do!

What are your favourite maps?

I like the new fun beach, its pretty much the same as the second beach level for the original RTCW but has a larger underground portion and slightly different objective.

My absolute favourite is the original fuel dump level. Great sniper level, great engr level. Its pretty much a great level for all classes.

Fav weapon?

I like the rifle grenades. With precision shooting you can have a rifle grenade land at the enemy's feet from any where on the map.

I play and I also like that level a lot, easy to get to ns of mortar kills on either side. For my favorite weapon I really like the flamethrower or mortar and hate your fav. weapon AKA the newbrifle (seriously, thats why most people steer clear of it). Also, we (us non-seniors) aren't allowed links unless they are heatware or ocforums.com sites in our signatures, just a headsup.

I've been playing for about a year, usually as a medic or an engineer. I've got 3 gaming rigs on a LAN at my house where my two best buds and I all get togther and find one interent server to play on.

My favorite original maps are the Battery and the Fueldump. Fueldump is a great XP builder.
My favorite new map is the Milenium Falcon in desert.

If you want to get better, I suggest you read this unofficial strategy guide.

I love the game... So much that I had to delete it because I was spending all my free time playing it and not getting anything done. Battery is still my favorite and FuelDump being #2. (I like spawncamping as a field ops and killing Allies in the Desert/Anti Aircraft guns level too)

I am awesome at all the classes but I still have trouble doing the "Trick Jump". I have been through a bunch of "Trick Jump" servers but still never got the hang of it. Anyone that can do that in a normal game is GOD LIKE.

Yesterday on my grandpa's PC (I still have the game on over there...) I played a really cool porn Mod for the game. It was on a non-punkbuster server called XXXsomethingXXX. It took 30 minutes to download but they had a ton of mod weapons.

To play this you just have to install RTCW then download this mod (or expansion) and install?

Nope, it's completly seperate game and it's FREE. I use to play it, but then I stopped. When I checked back on it a couple of weeks ago, alot of the servers were gone, and the ones that were there weren't near as full as they use to be. I'll install it again tonight to see what's up.

I think that Enemy territory is one of the best games out there actually. The reason is there is soooo many things to do. Day of Defeat, Call of Duty, and some of the others only have just 2 or 3 jobs. ET has tons of jobs you can do and you get rewarded with better skills the better you play as that job. (Medics can heal more people, Eng can blow up and build more things, COvert Ops can steal peoples Uniforms and stab people in the back easier....ect)

ET just plain rocks!

Yep, the game is always different depending on what class of player you are. And you get a false sense of accomplishment with all your XP points!

That is, until you get too good and rack up the most points everygame and then quit. This is what happened to me, but now I'm starting to play again and am happy to say that I suck, w00t. Also, this game is available for Linux!

Just played it... Wow, its a little different than DoD. Its ok I guess, DoD is better IMO. But I need to play ET a little more before I can really compare.

I tried the RTCW single player demo on the catacombs level. Man that is something scary to play at nigh by yourself. I think I will download Enemy territory today. I don't really get why you say the learning curve is so steep it plays just like MOHaa is ET different in some way?

ET is not like RTCW. You have 5 different classes to choose from and many of the maps are large with multiple objectives. Just reading the manual will give you a feel for the complexity.

Heh heh, yeah that really ****es people off on some maps so I only do it on maps where spawn camping is allowed. The thing is that all it takes is one single ENG or Panzerfaust or even a grenade to kill me in that little room yet nobody ever does?

I'm actually a very good player but it's nice to just let off some steam sometimes and just **** nOObs off. I had a Admin one time reverse my controls (I think it was called "Disorientation"?). Anyway, I managed to look at my screen upsidedown and still make it to the room. He was so impressed that he didn't boot me...(Until next round when I kept stabbing him in the back as a covert...LOL)

Yeah these guys are right though, ET does have a bit of a learning curve. That is the fun part, it will take you a while to learn all the skills. I reccomend starting out as a Engineer and going from there.
