The Euros wednesday evening are having a change from BF4 next Wednesday to try Americas army proving ground (free!) available on steam.

If anyone else is out there listening ....

7pm BST.

Edit: be aware there was a big patch yesterday (Thursday) which took 2 hours to dl for me.

It was very nice in the Czech republic, extremely nice weather, nice people

so this is what happend:
I was mountainbiking, we got up a hill and we went downhill in the woods on a small path, I went through a corner and saw a rock
from my perspective it wasn't big at all (it was actually huge) so I cycled over it and got launched 4 or 5 meters away and fell of my bike
my arm was hurting and I thought that it would get less hurt in a couple seconds so I got my bike of the path and sat down and realised that my saddle
was broken and my steer didn't so good and my arm was still hurting alot
later at the hospital the doctor was a bit unclear and didn't show the X-ray picture to us,
but thursday I am going to a doctor in the Netherlands, I think and hope I will get new gypsum, because the one I have now begins to stink! >.<

and I've tried to game with my broken arm, I can game, I won't say that it is efficient but it works

And the moral of this story is NEVER underestimate the size of rocks.
Hope you feel better soon Tim, and perhaps see you on Wednesday.

Americas Army is far more slow creep about rather than run and gun.

This was fun last night.

Made for a nice change, definitely more tactical than BF4.
Having to make decisions whether to go for the flag etc or just shoot the opposition
Whether to revive your dudes and risk being shot
Whether to secure the oppo and risk being shot
Makes it a lot more thoughtful. Also the maps are pretty tight.
Only problem was with small numbers it was easily unabalanced, think we
ought to make our own 10 sec headstart for the short team?

Same again next week? Anybody else going to join in? ITS FREE!

I liked it too, it's a bit more slow pace game then BF and CoD, but that has it always been.

Even when it's not set to hardcore it's like hardcore BF /CoD, not being shot at, then run around 2 minutes, turn around and shoot the oppo with 1 shot.
When being shot at, you die instantly, makes me wonder how hardcore would be like ?

Gonna install the game tonight, might show up for a game or two.

If I am on steam, give me a nudge, I should still be in the FnG-community group. :shock:

It will be fun to get shot at again :D
