Try It - It's Quite Invigorating
Just bellow out, "All Right, Le's Do Dis!" as soon as you wake up. It helps you start the day with the proper attitude.
I really dig Call of Duty 4's multiplayer component, because it clearly separates those who possess tactical ability with those who don't. And by "tactical", I don't mean "slow". Too many gamers use that word to refer exclusively to the slow paced turn-based gameplay of RPGs like Final Fantasy Tactics and Disgaea. Even the plodding breach-and-take-a-room Rainbow Six use of the word is misleading - that's the definition as used by SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics).
I'm referring to fast flowing on-the-fly battlefield tactics. There's a constant stream of information available to you in Call of Duty 4: your immediate field of vision, UAV recon, reports of enemy fire, audio of footsteps and weapons discharges, and the condition of any objectives. If you're able to identify the best lanes of fire (kill zones) and process all of this intel properly, you can place yourself in a position to score easy kills. All of the run-and-gun Halo players won't stand a chance against you.
A few people have watched me play, and are surprised at my success (1.80 kill/death ratio and rising). I know they possess twitch skills superior to my own, but even when they try to emulate what they see me doing, they don't fare as well, because they don't have a grasp of where and why I decide to take position.
I also recommend playing objective based game types, particularly Domination. This mode allows you to establish a Main Line of Resistance, allowing you to not worry about enemies spawning haphazardly behind your position. This most closely resembles an actual combat situation.
I'm interested in playing this game long-term, and I'd like to get a real clan going. I'm talking about full on teamwork, incorporating the elements I ranted about above, so that we can easily roll any opponent that has the bad luck to take the field against us. Drop me a line if you'd like to partake.
Also, I just audited my friends list. It hit the maximum number, so I deleted everyone I couldn't identify as an actual personality I knew. This chopped it in about half, so if I've deleted you by mistake, I apologize. Just drop me another friend request with the word "Direman" in the subject line.
