    Think the description is a little off, should be Gallipoli not Tripoli, unless they're referring to the 1804 Barbary War...

    Blue team needs to learn to manuever. Running in a straight line never works.

    • c550456 17th Sharder

      10 months ago

      Ordinarily I'd agree with you. But when the enemy can easily follow you in their sights, causing a barrage of homing rockets to go wherever you do, it doesn't really matter how you try to maneuver. That being the case, you are going to want to get as far as you can as fast as you can. Ergo, a straight line is the best.

    Game type looks siiiiick. I will assume the video was recorded in 1080p and that it is the new player that seems to think i can only stream 144p or so.

  • ablackraptor FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

    10 months ago

    Lannon's claim about Gallipoli is inaccurate, and based on the very Australian-biased account from the film. It was Australians (Col. John Antil and Brigadier Gen. Frederick Hughes, specifically), not the British, who ordered the attack that he's talking about, and many British soldiers lost their lives trying to back up the Australians, while the film he's basing his information on depicted it as being the British sending Australians to die for them while they drank tea on the beach, a massive inaccuracy that's actually super insulting to the British regiment that lost their lives because of the Australians Hughes and Antil and their incompetence.

    Just saying, its a very big piece of misinformation, that's really irksome to anyone who knows history.

    • RazuriAratur FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      10 months ago

      I gotta say, as an Australian, I pretty much believed the events the movie portrayed and never really bothered to look it up myself. After seeing this comment I went and did a bit of quick research on it and I have to admit it was a bit of a kick in the nuts to learn this. But sincerely, thank you for this, I appreciate now knowing what actually happened

    • ablackraptor FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      10 months ago

      No problem. Its a really obscure war in terms of modern history so its common for the only real pop culture thing to be the only way people know about it, and by extension base their knowledge off of it.

      To be honest I wasn't even sure I should post this; I half expected to get a bunch of negative mods for taking his comments seriously when they were probably meant to be a joke. Good to know its not the case (thank god the comment section here is so much more decent than most).

    • Tocae FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      10 months ago

      Hey I'm Lannan. I don't actually remember what I said in the video because it was filmed awhile ago but most of my knowledge on what happened came from school. Obviously that means it's probably biased as hell and I was surely joking around but if it's not what actually happened and if t hit close to home it wasn't my intention mate

    • ablackraptor FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      10 months ago

      No worries, and thanks for actually responding, that's really cool of you to do. To be honest it wasn't that big of a deal to me, it just struck me as something I knew was inaccurate. The only thing I'm annoyed at is the film itself.


      Edit: OK, so looking back over my original comment, I might have came off as more upset than I actually was over it; yesterday I was having a really shitty day and I was trying to watch RT stuff to take my mind off of it, but the buggy connection made the video stop right after Lannan's comment, so I might have been venting a bit.

      I'll agree that the gametype left something to be desired. I'm not sure what that something was exactly, though. I know that if I were a runner, I'd be juggling the ball like a flag in CTF, so I'd be interested to see how people who can really play the game played this. I'm not really comfortable with the idea that this gametype relied on people who aren't familiar with the game mechanics - that feels predatory to me. I'm also not sure what the point was in only having the one spawn point - having them run all the way back to the spot where they died once they reached the halfway point was bizarre.


      Maybe if they'd had a spawn option halfway and the defenders could have picked up even crazier weapon options the bridge would have been more fun to watch and play. Maybe giving the runners power-up options would have been fun, too - a speed boost or a camo pick-up would have been good advantages to strategically use as runners.


      Overall, I felt like I was watching a good first draft of something and not a finished final product. There are just some tweaks that could be made that might make this more fun to play and watch for everyone.
