1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    If you're lucky enough to stay alive to call in a Stealth Bomber, you're killing everybody. This board is the size of a sandbox.

    Yeah, the killstreaks overpower this map. Shipment was a mess with only helicopters/airstrikes...I've been on the wrong end of a chopper gunner and it's tough to deal with.

    the problem with shipment is if you called in an airstrike the boat should have sank.
    I always hated that board. High rise is a fun little map.

    Thanks for all the sniping suggestions, I played around a little bit and almost have my sniping setup down. One thing to note is that the silencer reduces effectiveness too much, I ended up winging people far more than I killed them. Took the silencer off and that allowed me to get the Perfectionist title on Underpass.

    Mauro, I sent you a PM. Add me to your friends, and we'll play some time.

    I played Rust for the first time yesterday. I've played CoD almost every day since it came out, and I had no idea this map even existed. I'm not sure how I managed to never play it before.

    Also I'm close to 70, and can't decide if I should do prestige or not. Are you guys? Is there any benefit for doing it?

    You're not the only one that hated Shipment. It didn't feel like a MW board. Remind me again: what's Highrise? The board with the offices and cubicles? That one's really similar to an old CounterStrike map (which was also great).

    Yes, the one with the most glitches in it. Although some people don't think that leaving the map is a glitch.

    The only beef I have with it so far, is that there are no gun fights. The majority of the time, the kill goes to the player who comes up behind the other player, or who sees the other player first. At least in Socom, most of the time the better shooter would prevail. This just seems to be a roll of the dice. If you see me first, I'm dead. If I see you first, you're dead. It's great for fast paced play, but I think it lacks the long term playability and skill that Socom has. I haven't had the game that long, but I also feel like there could be more maps...

    I agree with this, but I think this mainly arises from the porous map designs. Whereas, in MW1, the maps tended to be roughly "O" shaped, with teams clashing at either end, the maps in MW2 are very open, meaning that no real "lines" can develope. It is almost impossible to hold down an area simply due to the fact that security is impossible.

    Noob tube is such a pussy weapon. They should have made it unlockable at a much higher level.

    I believe Rust was initially meant for games with a small number of players( for obvious reasons). I'm not sure why it shows up in team death match now. I prestiged and received a 6th class. I imagine the benefit will increase as the levels do.

    Awesome. Glad to know there's a benefit.

    Looks like Shipment but it has a big, rusted metal structure in the middle. It's also set in the desert.

    Yup, Pro Wrestling. "A winner is you!"
