  1. Apologies, didn't mean to derail the thread. Feel free to merge, my response was a good one, would be interested to see embecmoms reply as we do actually agree (even though I am a millennial! :P)
  2. Social Discussion

    My point was, do not put us all in the one basket. We are not all the same. Sure a lot of my generation are as you describe, but that is the vocal ones that you see the most of. There are still plenty of us who are just normal people, getting on quietly with life. The media has put this term "millennial" out there to describe a whole generation, when in reality, that just does not work. People are people no matter what generation. Some are attention seekers who think the world revolves around them, others just quietly get on with it. I see people in there 40's and 50's on Facebook and Twitter who are completely enthralled in it. It is not a generational issue, but an intellectual one. The stupider you are, the more you get taken in by all the modern instant bullshit. It is weak minds, not your age. I hate everything you describe, so I actually agree with you completely. I see people consumed by social media in the neverending quest for likes, followed by the emptiness when they realise (well I think the problem is a lot of them do not ever realise) it means nothing. I too hate the twitter mob who vilify people with no evidence and hate how glued people are to their phone screens (although again, that is everyone, not just young people!). Please do not think we are all the same, that is all I ask. A lot of my friends feel the way I do, we are almost ashamed of our "generation", but as I mentioned above it is not necessarily a generation issue, but a people/intellectual one.
  3. Social Discussion

    I didn't actually need to use wiki, I already knew the age range of millennials. People, such as yourself, often get confused with the date ranges. So you think anyone born after 1982 is a horrible millennial who needs instant gratification? Feel free to think that, but it is an extremely ignorant and narrow minded view. Plus what year were you born? I imagine you will just ignore this part again.
  4. A millennial is someone born in 1982 until around 2002. The world has changed insanely in those years, so do not put me in the same pot as generation X (the generation who cannot remember a time without ipads/technology etc). I was born in 1993 and I do not need a badge to say I have done well. I play this game for the same reasons you do. Also what year were you born? Before 1982? If not, then you are a millennial too.
  5. Exactly, you can give us all the tools in the world and people will still play it how they want too. Public play will always be hit and miss. Clan/Regiment games will always be the best place for "proper" gameplay.
  6. He loves squad and has some good input. Also do not put HABS on objectives.
  7. I noticed this a few months ago and thought maybe I just had not noticed it before. Some maps are fine and others the scope is just so jittery. I have no idea what causes it.
  8. V10 weapon muzzle control

    This. You can be the best Marksmen at the range, but an extremely poor combat shooter. You will never know until you are in combat. I love the new shooting mechanics. Doesn't seem to stop people blowing my head off every time I pop it out, so I would say it hasn't made that much difference to longer range engagements.
  9. Report Abusive Players?

    Just no. Ever since I have played online games (about 15 years) people have always been just as racist online. Give someone anonymity and racism is one of the first things that materialises. Nothing to do with "public figures"
  10. When are the British coming?

    We are allowed 1 Eurofighter, 1Challenger and 1 SA80 with a full mag. Any more than that and it would be unrealistic due to the cuts. Hopefully they also include a player modeled on Boris Johnson, maybe with a driveable Boris bike. One can only hope....
  11. Long term RO player, loved RO1, RO2 and Rising Storm. However I recently bought Rising Storm 2 and hated it. The fact that the basic rifleman has at least an M16 or AK, just ruins the pace of the game. I always loved the fact that most players had a bolt-action. I know it is Vietnam, I just do not think that RO should be set after WW2 at all. Ruins the pace and turns it into any old shooter instead of a great unique one it used to be. I also agree that Squad is way different from RO or RS and the two should not be compared much, if at all.
  12. V10 leeks are here! Release close??

    http://uploads.im/znLf5.jpg I was excited reading this title as I thought finally the Welsh will be represented in Squad. Alas wrong type of leek.
  13. View on kids playing?

    I think it is just individual and not much to do with age. I have played various games with 20 year olds who act like 14 year olds and vice versa. So it depends on the individual. Was squad leading last Friday on the TLR server (was a great game and I had a great group of squadmates) and we had a younger guy in the squad. He was excellent, really understood the game and was good at calling out targets quickly and concisely. I will be honest, I heard his younger (read squeakier) voice and metaphorically rolled my eyes, but i was wrong in my assumption. I find some people just get the game and others do not, irrelevant of age.
