I've been playing a lot of Medal Of Honour Allied Assault lately, but it's tricky to find a server that isnt full of camping kiddies using aimbots (or at least, thats what I tell myself to excuse my lamentable performances :shock: ). tried Team Fortress, but it hasnt grabbed me. Same for Battlefield 1942.

I did post in the TSG clan sticky, but no one's answered. any other Arrser's up for a spot of online gaming? is Bad Company 2 worth the readies? what about COD? I did get the new AVP, which is superbly atmospheric - looks and sounds amazing - but the online play is so heavily skewed in favour of people playing as Predators it's almost unplayable, even in team deathmatch mode.

I got BC2 for fifteen notes the other day in Game. Finally getting used to it online, but not sure if I can give you a proper recommendation yet. It's different, and seems to be quite fun. I think you need to get some mates together and properly team up if you're going to get the most out of it, though. I downloaded Lead & Gold off Steam the other day - that's quite fun and relatively cheap (£10 - it's a self-published title) but not a massive player base.

TF2 is ace, but then again TF Classic was my first ever online shooter back in like 96 or whatever so I'm a little bit nostalgic. COD:MW2, as good as it is, isn't worth getting into now. Hackers and modders have made it unplayable.

I may stump up for BF2 soon as I'm sure you can get it for like a fiver. A mate of mine (serving Cav WO1) is one of the main people behind the Project Reality mod that's been made for it, and that looks pretty sexy - very realistic gameplay, and plenty of Brit stuff modelled and playable.

I play Call of Duty 2 online. The problem I have is finding a server where my ping rate is under 300 (there may be local servers but they'll probably be in Chinese so I can't see them) so I usually play on the 'Mechanised Satan' and 'A2' servers as 'Dirk Dagger'.

I'm trying to load Punkbuster on to my new Windows 7 PC but can't seem to do it. I'm fed up with 12 y.o. Russian kids with fecking aimbots.

Counter Strike is excellent, especially 'Source' which has a slightly more realistic flavour. It does not have the complete chaos of COD 4 or Modern Warfare 2 and can be quite tactical.

I really enjoyed the CS games and the mods for the game are infinite. People have modded it so that any variant of the game is possible. 15 quid? You won't be disappointed. CS has been going for 7 or 8 years and still massively popular.

As per the thread I play

Lord of the Rings Online
World of Warcraft

But when my new XBox gets here it will all be Modern Warfare 2 baby!

League of Legends. 5 a side team based strategy map control malarkey with an array of champions to choose from, all with unique playstyles and abilities. awesome and also, free. (though you can give them money for skins and such) 'Mushy Bees' if anyone wants to add me.

My games of choice at the moment are:

League of Legends
Lord of the Rings Online
BFBC2
TF2

Personally, I really enjoy BC2 especially as I tend to play with the same group of people all the time and have a good laugh on vent at the same time.
