HEY NEWCOMERS ! GIVE CLASSIC MODE A CHANCE !!
Think about it ! It's the only mode that gives stationary players / campers / guys who like "tactically wait" a harder time shooting at poor basterds who have just downloaded the game, even 80m torso hits feel hard to achieve, because there is no robotic press-shift-to-zoom while weapon sway and recoil are substantially increased compared to "realism" mode !

Attackers/rushers/run and gun headless chickens are at a disadvantage as well ! there's a healthy amount of weapon sway even when you are prone and fully rested(hint: you can still press shift to hold your breath and steady your aim a bit ), run like a dog - try to ADS when you've just depleted your stamina bar and see what happens :D

You can still lvl up your classes/weapons like in realism / action mode but unlocks / character bonuses mean NOTHING while playing classic ! everyone has the same drum mag ppsh, everyone has the same stamina pool, suppresion "resistance" etc

Realism mode also features "peripheral whips", pesky little blobs that warn you when enemy (and only enemy) soldiers are moving outside your FOV, making every kill you make and every death you avoid feel cheap and unrealistic, soooo keep your eyes open for classic servers and give this love mode a fair chance before going back to un-realism or even uninstalling this unique and immersive WW2 fps !!

I actually never tried anything but the territory/campaign, it's what you get if you wanna play.

Classic always felt awkward because most of the maps aren't designed for it and gave the defenders a pretty big advantage.

Realism is the main mode of the game and how I'd recomend new players get into it honestly. Even if they later come to prefer classic.

*BUMP*

They are very few classic servers right now, playing on .44 ifanterie division right now (84.200.5.226:7777)

It is a custom server so most annoying "realism" features like minimap, peripheral whips etc are disabled, here's a video of those pesky grey blobs in action !!

There's your problem. This game obviously isn't meant for people with low attention spans.

It is not a game for everybody, but thank you for giving it a try. You may want to give it a longer go however as many fans report they didn't "get it" until a few hours in.

I saw in your profile that you played SP. That`s ok I never got into the SP part of RO2 - not my cop of tea :)

You should try to log some time in MP when or if you have some time over.

I did the same thing the first time I played it quite a few months back. Reinstalled it a few weeks ago to play with some friends and now can't put it down. The game's amazing if you give it a chance.
