Tips for new guys and gals starting out in the game, based off of what I've observed so far.
I just got this game during the awesome Steam Holiday sale, I've only been playin on realism (reminded me of BC2 Hardcore mode :P) and I've taken note of a couple of things I think new players should know.

1. From the short time I've been playin I've noticed that some people take this game very seriously, serious enough that you might be inclined to believe they think they're actually in WW2 fighting to survive. Beware of these people; they have a tendency to get rather upset when they're not winning and create a toxic gameplay environment for those of you who are trying to learn the ropes or who just want to have some fun. Some of these people are server admins, look for titles in their names before you go and tell them to calm their tots unless you're lookin for a ban. (just got banned from a server myself for telling one of the admins its just a game while he was yelling at players for being "♥♥♥♥ing idiots").

2. This game is complicated, has alot more buttons and functions than many pc games, and isn't ur standard shooter (ie. not just about your kdr); there is alot of teamwork involved. If you're just starting out and you're playin on a populated server, try not to pick Squad Leader class, Sbiper, or Commander class until you get a better hang of how their roles work in combat.(also some servers have rules saying their members get first pick of these classes so be prepared to have to change roles because of that). My advice.. DO THE TUTORIAL. It contains valuable information about game mechanics and can let you mess around with buttons and mechanics without screwin your team over :P.

3. Don't be afraid to ask for help. For the most part this community is awesome at helping new people out and they'll be glad to help you out. And for those vets of the game, keep in mind we were all noobs once.

4. Follow your superiors, Squad Leaders (SL) and Commander, I've had the most fun in this game so far when everyone is working together to capture objectives and moving as one big machine rather than a billion tiny individuals; you'll be more likely to win and you'll have a better time. Also, if you're playing realism, take some time to find the differences between you're team's uniforms and the enemy's. That may sound silly but this game places a huge priority on target identification. Usually people can be pretty darn forgiving in this game when it comes to TKs just don't keep doing it and say sorry if it does happen, an apology can make all the difference.

5. Don't get angry. Easier said than done I know but keep in mind that all you're going to accomplish is making the game miserable for yourself and if you get mad at others you're going to ruin their fun too. If you absolutely must say something try being constructive and using please and thank you, people will be much more receptive that way. The last thing you want is a toxic game where no one is having fun.

Im sure plenty of you will have more tips and advice for new players, feel free to put anything down here I may have forgotten. New players feel free to ask for help as im sure lots of people will be more than willing to help :)

6. Avoid 64 players. Maps were never made to harbor 64 players. 9 out of 10 maps are 40 players max.

7. Avoid realism mode. It's basically action mode without crosshair and resembles Call of Duty the most. Play Classic instead, it is closest to realism.

6. Ignore everything Bagration says. He has nothing positive to contribute. All he does is troll this forum with his same spam comments.

64-player servers are the best.

For the OP...

Thank you for posting this, you are one of the few new people who seem to get it. I love this game so much and am willing to help new people all the time. Too bad we have trolls and teenage crybabys who team kill and rage about a game that has a learning curve. But you are absoultley right about everything, sorry about number 2 though. There are some vets who hardcore rage, and we dont need them anyway haha.

Go ahead and add me if you'd like. I play all positions cooperatively!

Sounds like RMC is just 29th ID reborn.

Sounds like a whiny ♥♥♥♥♥. Look at the comments captain e-peen has written on his own profile.

Prudent. All cowardly riflemen should be executed. They're front-line troops, and it loses players the game if they sit back and expect other players to die trying to carry their gold-bricking backsides.

I've played online fps since 'RTCW' and i've seen alot of overly gungho clan servers like this unfortunately.

All that is accomplished by tking pub players on your servers is to eventually have a dead server. When you have clan members get overly aggressive with players on the mic and go to the extreme and tk players for not playing the way you think they should, you lose that player and all the others who watched you tk him.

You're not going to keep that server alive and thriving by using Gestapo tactics like that. That type of behavior is just obnoxious and absurd.

of course some haved to fire a bit befor emoving to clear a path m these guys arent the problem
the problem are those we see 150meters or so back sniping with pistols and smg
these are the gus we moan at and tk if they dont help the rest of the team
this is a TEAM game and we need those smgers up there to help cap
infact we need every one up- there except the nsiper and o ne of the LMG
those we think are sat back padidng their stats rather than helping get a few requests first
then a few moans
then tk starts if they still dont respond
when the respon ah ok i didnt know it is left there
when they resp-ond with somehting like F*&K you naturally they are removed from our server sharp-ish as the attitude is selfish to the rest of the team
and i stand by my orrigional post if you want nothing more than to pad your stats then do it elsewhere
if you want to p-lay RO as it was meant ot be played as part of a team
then your more than wel;come to join in and hopefyully have fun wether your serious or not
play the team game and you will ge tleft alone
and i like your statement ace :)

RO2 was meant to be played by obnoxious clans who tk the guests on their servers for not playing as you dictate?

I don't think so.

If you have a noobie that took a particular role and has been verbally warned a few times that he isn't using it correctly, just session ban the goof. He'll get the point, and it won't involve aggression on your part.

Why tk and grief the player at all? That's obnoxious and more than a little childish. Tking someone deliberately is always a d@uchebag move. Period.

Most admins that act like mature adults just remove players they deem to be causing problems, not act like an angry bratty 16 yr old and tk them.

The players you tk will undoubtedly be a little angry about being tked, you're in fact plainly baiting the player to get angry and cuss at you or shoot at you so you can ban him. Again, just childish behavior from a clan.

After trying to decipher your horrible composition and spelling I might just be right about the 'childish' part. Good god man, did you even attend a proper school at all?

Yup. Seems like RMC is just 29th ID clone.

Do not worry. I will not try to visit your servers as I would most likely be a major distraction to your way of gaming.

I wish you success in your chosen path.
