Well I got close to 300 hours logged in it, but most of that was done early on lol, barely play it these days, it's kind of alright to pick up and play every now and then. Screw being addicted to it and screw serious online games, main reason why I'm not getting another MMO anytime soon. Well if you're ever interested for the sake of it, let me know, gives me a reason to play it, besides 10 people whining that I should fly 24/7.
And ah yea I see, so it's more like, going to school in France, but taking up 'courses' or whatever in the US for X period of time? Well the US is a hate/love thing really, it sure ain't the same as just visiting, at least LA is not. Lol The beach becomes kind of secondary really. :p

(This thread is going to top the off topic thread back in the day on SWGEmu I'm sure)
You're a newb and you know it, your copter is nothing, my Y-Wing would bomb your face before you even got off the ground, you just can't compare.
Hell space combat in Battlefront II became pretty boring after a while, years after the release, people would just chase each other in their fighters and kill each other and the whole mission would take ages to finish, so I was one of the very few to actually bother with the enemy mothership, in my case Star Destroyer, I would be one of the whole two people actually bothering to board the damn ship, kill my way in and take down the turrets, the shield, the reactor, the life support, so the ship would be crippled and our team could take it down easy, but I was so used to it it wasn't even challenging anymore, but well I still had fun, Battlefront II was so much fun even though it wasn't a great FPS game overall, like Battlefield 1942/Vietnam/2, with actual strategic stuff, but fun as all hell, and when everyone was bored, we all gathered in Mos Eisley in Republic/Alliance vs CIS/Empire, with mostly Jedi vs Sith just screwing around overusing Force push/pull/choke to make the enemy rage in chat.
I was actually one of the few who used saber block to block incoming attacks and then a well timed saber throw to lower the enemy's health and then when they tried to force jump back knowing they were about to die, I would force sprint in their face while hacking them to death with my lightsaber, then jump away to a building's rooftop, it went on and on to no end, I could play 5 hours straight, sometimes more, and I didn't see the time pass lol.
And well, I did play Battlefield 3 on my uncle's computer (he's a 44 years old nerd), and while it was pretty and super shiny and all, I didn't find the same appeal, it felt too new age, just like the new COD series (ugh) or the new age Medal of Honor which disappointed me so hard being an old MoH fan, even if it was superior BF3 bored me, maybe it's just me, but it felt like a bad mix between Bad Company and a regular Battlefield, I don't know if it's the ambiance that put me off, probably. I don't know, it's probably the Iraq/Iran maps that put me off the most, basically using the "war on terror" crap as a mean to get moar monies, meh, I miss Vietnam tbh, at least this "war" taught everyone not to screw with the vietnamese lol.
Anyhow, what was I talking about?
EDIT: Omg spellingz.
I copter nothing huh, you know nothing! Some peasy Y-Wing flying might be fun, but takes little skill!
I never played Beatlefront II, only I and that not online, can't really comment.
I don't really care about BF3 much as a whole, but the flying is still fun, especially because it's so hard to do well in them. Fly with me once and you'll understand, haha. There is so much high pace action and concentration that the 'flashiness' totally becomes mute. But once you got a good pilot/gunner combo, it's just amazing, even jets at a TV missle in their afterburner. I barely ever play ground combat, when I do, it's like with 2-3 people over voip on smaller maps, the large ones suck in BF3 for infantry, imo.
BF:V was so much fun though, amagad.
Actually... we should play BF42 DC mod (Even coop is fun, but I gotta learn to fly coppas again there), BF2 mods, like Forgotten Hope which is fantastic, or just plain old BF:V. That'd be a load of fun tbh. Got a second BF2 for free with the Origin coupon a few days ago too...
I play a lot of spaceflight games (wild surprise there, right?), and I've always maintained a respectable joystick (not quite HOTAS, but near enough). I loved 1942. I sucked at anything short of Medic on the ground, but get me in a plane and I was totally awesome; capping the mountain points on El Alamein by holding a low, tight spiral over the flag, dogfights over Iwo Jima, etc. Only thing I never got the hang of was bombing runs; I had a nasty tendency to blow myself up whenever I used the bombs. Oh well; I took out tanks with guns and extreme prejudice.
Then came Desert Combat. And the Black Hawk.
Oh, sure, the jets were fun. And yeah, the combat helicopter was the bees knees. But that black hawk, on a good team? I didn't get kills; no guns for the pilot. And I didn't get flag captures, not directly; trying to hover that long was an invite to get blown up. But you bet your ass I was fucking SURGICAL with my insertions in that baby; I could drop a full team on the rooftops of any building in the game. I could out-maneuver almost any other vehicle. And with a good gunner, I could OBLITERATE enemy forces. I was a battlefield mobility expert.
Regrettably, MOST pilots were so useless in the Black Hawk that people began to see it as a flying death-trap. You were more likely to get killed by your pilot than actually make it anywhere. So... teams willing and able to utilize my skills were rare. Most of the time, I was relegated to flying a plane... occasionally, with luck, the massive mobile spawn plane, which was equally deadly, so long as someone was playing defense against fighters. *sigh*.
