Better be unlocks...would be rather disappointing if it was stock.
I wouldn't be disappointed as I thought BF2 scrims were always stock weapons but just wanted to make sure as sometimes unlocks are allowed. The use of stock weapons only would be fair as some people may not have all the unlocks (including myself) and/or may not have SF for second unlocks
I suggest that we use the standard Internode rules for play. That way we can keep the game fairly fun even if one team is getting pwnt.
No, that's just not a possibility.

there is a chance i won't make all the games, the first 2 are definetely out, so if you want to scratch me off the list for this time i should be available for other matches
Yeh i played on the server today and it did not have weapon unlocks.. But this is standard for these types of scrims.. I will see if that can be changed in the booking and we can debate it more if it can be changed..
But yeh play to internode rules basicly..

(there are some things there that dont concern us)
We'll keep you I think. Shame you will miss the first map, but you look like a keen medic. Also, I think we outnumber/outskill the WP team at the moment so we shouldn't miss you on the first map.
um... the big question i suppose is....
what style of game are we playing?
ie. are we playing a 'clan' match, where it's actually about winning? the whole strats and squads lists and Teamspeak coms and such?
or is it more like a friendly game where people can come and go as they please over the 2 hours? where people can play with other decent players without the n00bs and TKers and bunny hoppers and prone jumpers and jet/tank spawn rapers etc.?
or is it a bit of both... a bit like a friendly clan scrim?
oh... and if buzzpuppy would like to take the commander's role for OCAU, would WP like the services of a fair-to-middlin' commander, such as myself, if no others are available?
Goddamn you're modest. You're one of the two best commanders we've got.
I'd suggest a friendly interforum scrim. I know WP has got strats and whatnot but I'm confident of a friendly relaxed game.
Oh, what the hell, I'll play either side

I haven't heard of a lot of the players for OCAU, but you can get a lot of their names/numbers off the wiki, http://www.overclockers.com.au/wiki/Battlefield_2/Roll_Call. Though really they should be able to give the details to you if they're serious.
As I said before, I'll go backup from 10pm onwards EST. [OCAU] dgrimreaper, 58647978.
Fathermucker you should PKM whore for us! I'm guessing it's a bit of both styles of play, esp if it's going to be a regular thing.
hehe, yeah i love playing medic, i've got so many deaths because i was a bit suicidal in my meds delivery when i was first playing. but i've fixed that fatal flaw in my game though
I am going to say it will be both. More of a "friendly clan scrim" as you call it
I hope ppl wont come and go unless for a dink or a pipe!!
Its like you said a bit of both.. But at the end we will be posting all of the screenies of the rounds to define a winner!! (some1 has to brag)
oh... and if buzzpuppy would like to take the commander's role for OCAU, would WP like the services of a fair-to-middlin' commander, such as myself, if no others are available? [/QUOTE] Ill look into it , thanks for the offer!! get back to you soon on that!!
If it's a 1.3 server that's not ranked (or thinks it's ranked like the XGN servers) then there won't be unlocks. The reason being that EA took them out in the 1.3 patch for no other reason that to try and drive casual players onto ranked servers and thus keep their income stream steady. The whole ranked server thing works just like WoW except it's the server providers who pay the subscription fee.
Anyway, after scrimming some without unlocks (in 1.2 and before scrims were with unlocks) I can honestly say that the stock weapons are better in terms of gameplay. Both sides are better balanced and the game plays out in a much more dynamic way. Before unlocks were taken away from us it was not uncommon to see whole teams go as support or AT just for the PKM or the DAO12, and the game just looked stupid. And then there were matches where 8 of 16 players were medics who ran around insta-killing you with single G36E bursts from 30 metres away, very fun.
Finally, if you remember the stock weapons sucking when you first started the game, then I'm sure that's pretty much because you were a noob at the time. So was I and everyone else when they first started. Once you get experienced and go back to them, you'll find them to be quite good actually. Since a lot of clans were forced to use them in scrims they found out they didn't suck as much as they remembered them doing in their PFC days, so it's not uncommon to see people from big clans getting high scores on pub servers as infantry using a stock weapon even though they have unlocks available.
Stock weapons ftw. Except for the M16. Because I prefer the F2000 over it.
Yea I guess...the only unlock I use is the L85A1 as a medic. Even then it is only for the scope!
I am happy to without I guess. Makes it fairer.
