    Thank You FG

    Well, its been 3 months since my Grandad passed away and its been very surreal time for me. For those that don't know, who haven't read my PPR, he was essentially my Dad. Lived with him all my life until I met my wife and always remained close to him. Without me knowing, you guys did what you always do best - you jumped to surround me, look after me when I felt quite lost and being great friends whenever I needed it. Exactly what you'd expect family to do. But you also gave me an opportunity to always have him remembered, by me, my family and everyone else that he helped along his journey. For that, i'll be eternally grateful to you all. The tree and plaque you all contributed to will be placed at the Cricket Club down the road from where we lived. It was where I played all my cricket through the early years and where he was right by my side. I wanted to put this up when I had the plaque in my hands (came Friday) and was very apt timing, because this Sunday the family met up for a special meal - his last wish rather than have his money spent on a funeral. It was a great day, and great memories made. Even better when I could show some family members what all of YOU guys and girls did. I didn't need more reasons to keep this place going but just when I needed it, its perfectly timed, like always. Thank You will never be enough. One last note is I want you to know that i'm getting better - He's always with me when we play. He sits below me, every night we game together and when I post on FG like right now. I'm going to keep it that way because he made me believe never to give up on things. Like this place. GGFG

    Congrats Rob @The3rdWalker !!!! I gotta say I'm blown away to see that. You've got your head down, worked your ass off in that community, built what you wanted to build and seen it succeed in ridiculous amounts. You deserve it mate. It's easy to forget the dark quiet days here at FG and you stuck around and helped out a lot and I can't thank you enough for that. The logo still is a fitting choice for this place. Good luck on continuing to build on your CCS League mate ❤

    It was an out of body experience. I enjoy getting people to where they want to be and I underestimated how much he community loved me. It was... a lot of attention. Thanks so much for the support here guys, to be honest I could have became bored with the game if it wasn't for all of us playing on PS4. I have clipped the full segment from Six Invitational 2020:

    Modern Warfare First Impressions

    I'd be lying if I said I'm not thoroughly enjoying the game. The consistency is still a major problem, sometimes I absolutely destroy people and sometimes I don't have a chance in a fight. This isn't down to skill but down to connection, and no amount of "it's dedicated servers lol" will change my mind. When I'm on a rampage it's very obvious that something in the netcode is working in my favour, whereas if the shoe is on the other foot, it's also painfully obvious in that I get killed in one shot before I can even raise my gun. I also find that some of the maps are extremely dependent on their knowledge to do well. The better I'm getting to know the maps the better I'm playing, and also the more I'm learning how to fuck up campers. Yes campers are a pain the arse but at the end of the day this is CoD and the community in this game is very well known to be the biggest load of wank in the gaming world, but a little element of surprise and a shotgun to the face usually takes care of them. The maps are all much of a muchness really, some are good, some are shit, some are Shipment. The worst map for me by a country mile is that fucking cave map. The campers are always in the building overlooking C, overlooking A, and occasionally the rug store. You can set your watch to this. Still, grabbing a sniper and zapping that cunt in the building at C over and over again is infinitely satisfying. Another one is the room overlooking B on Crash. I often set up shop in there with claymores and everything to counter the campers and on some occasions I've even had fan mail from campers moaning that I'm camping too much. Two claymores, a shotgun and an ammo box is immense fun. Then there's that other map, can't think of the name right now, C is on some train tracks, there's always that prick on the ledge overlooking A, and often the one sitting on the pipes at top of the building at the back of the map. I've managed to get a care package off that one fella alone, as I killed him, he came back and I was prone on the roof so I killed him again and left a pair of claymores up there for him, and he got zapped by both of them. Ha fucking ha, cunt. It's fun. I can't wait for @techno to get it.

    Problem with my PC

    Quick lil' update, I arranged an RMA for Dave on and he sent his PC off on Monday. They checked the mobo with various CPUs and had the same issue consistently, so they replaced the motherboard, reinstalled the CPU, applied the overclock again and sent it out yesterday. They tried to deliver it today but Dave's off to see some family so he's going to try pick it up tomorrow from his local depot. Happy endings and all that

    Problem with my PC

    It's too early to tell Dave. There are a few possibilities here: GPU knackered: Not under warranty, replace with the 980 I'm sending you, gain an extra 7% FPS. Motherboard knackered: I have the receipts and stuff, send it back, win the internet. I've got that 980 in my bag here, post office opens at 9. I haven't had time to clean it unfortunately so it's a bit dusty but it'll be with you tomorrow.

    I'm back baby!

    Well, I left my phone at work over my days off and was too lazy to go back and get it. So I didn't post any updates. But on my days off, I played and grinded the last guns that I had left to get gold. I dont have pictures but: Gold Gun #34, .357, definitely a strong pistol and feels like a shotgun with crazy range. Definitely my favorite pistol. Gold Gun #35, .50 GS (AKA Deagle), the other really strong pistol. Great gun but personally, I dont like the horrific amount of recoil which makes it extremely inconsistent for accuracy. Gold Gun #36, Dragunov, my least favorite Sniper. I am not a fan of the amount of recoil it has as well as I wasn't able to hit shots with this sniper as I did with the others. Gold Gun #37, HDR, personally like the AX-50 more. In all honesty, I think I like the Marksman rifles more than the snipers. With that being said I think if it came to Core, I'd use the AX-50 for quick scoping, for HC I'd use Marksman rifles, they are all pretty good for specific playstyles. That concludes my last weapons to get gold and also makes my Pistols and Snipers platinum. That now makes Pistols, Shotguns, Melee, SMGs, LMGs, ARs, Marksman Rifles, and Snipers all platinum leaving the dreadful Rocket Launchers to take on... The only thing is that they are more situational due to I need not to destroy the enemy and let them get streaks.... I have the PILA gold leaving the Strela-P, JOKR, and RPG-7. I am currently working on the RPG-7 and am struggling to get Support streak kills. If you guys want pictures then I can post them later. None the less, that's that... Via the FG App

    Now we have a chosen charity to support I want to keep momentum going. So we need ideas that you think would work, even if its an idea that raises just a few pounds. The more we have the better chance we all have to get involved. On that note, it would be good to know if you also want to be involved in any of the ideas. If it is anything physical I would absolutely look to get something sorted so you have some form of attire to wear and providing I have the conversations at MIND, i will then work out what i'm allowed to do with their logo, etc. So, drop anything you've got below or/and your involvements!

    One of my favourite things on Call of Duty is the domination game mode. It’s fast paced and forces out all of the campers as you have to push on to flags etc to win. After watching many different videos and playing for a long time I have to admit - playing dom, getting the win and hitting some streaks requires a certain strategy. My argument for this is, it’s hard to go on long kill streaks if you don’t know where your enemies are coming from, this is why I’m not a fan of team death match as the spawns are a lot more difficult to predict and gun fights are often 50/50 rather than 90/10 when you know an enemy is coming. Also, you don’t want to be the loser camping in corners trying to get a streak going whilst the enemy has 2 flags capped and you’re losing the game. So, what is the strategy? Well it’s nothing ground breaking but it is often one that is overlooked - grab a home flag (A or C) and cap B. Then, use the power positions overlooking the enemy spawn to kill them as they come out. This only works if all members of the team don’t break the imaginary line that crosses between the last third of the map where the enemies will spawn at their home flag. The problem is, it never seems to go this way as we all go looking for kills or (what usually happens) the enemy pushes deep into our spawn and then we get flipped over to their side. In this circumstance you shouldn’t cap the enemy flag but instead retreat and catch the enemies on the flank. Communication is also key in this context as each member of the team is responsible for covering gaps in the map and maintaining map control. A word on this. Map control relates to having a member of the team in certain areas so that enemies do not spawn their (for the most part). A good strategy when capping B is for someone to push past the B flag and kill anyone coming to defend. So, if you want to hit some streaks and get a guaranteed win on Dom, give this strategy a try the next time you are in a sizeable team! Also, give this topic a little YouTube as well because there are people much better than me who can explain it better. Thanks Elliot

    Well the mobo arrived today which is a great turnaround time. Re-install was reasonably easy (they ought to make motherboard designers remove mobos from cases, that part was a PITA) and, as I type this, everything seems to be running OK One interesting development was that I had to send the board and CPU back together as it was a pre-installed bundle. The board I sent back had a Ryzen 5 2600x 6 core processor...the one it came back with is a Ryzen 7 3700x 8 core processor. Hopefully that's a win but, if not, at least it works! Thanks again guys for all your help

    Sorry, but anyone who fell for this is an idiot. Gaming history is littered with failed hardware launches. Google's history is littered with failed hardware launches. Internet infrastructure is littered with failed projects. This whole project was covered in flags from day one, there was literally not a single reason to get excited about it, and yet here we are. Anyone surprised by Google's fuckup is delusional tbh.

    Problem with my PC

    I found a solution which I have used in a similar situation from a previous experience;- next time you start up with the problematic monitor, open up a window, throw the monitor out of said window (preferably upstairs) and then the issue should be resolved. Fair do's the monitor is now permanently broken but at least the issue wont happen again. Hope this helps Dave!

    Yeah well done! What a grind your doing Froggie. The launchers are horrible, RPG is great. The Strella is ridiculous, honestly once you get the others gold. The Strella will be your last one. Literally takes days of playtime. Not trying to make you jealous, but my launchers are platinum. It's my only platinum category. Only the Uzi for the SMG's to be platinum, then a random mix of other golds. Sorry man this is your progress, just incredible the amount of gold guns you have. Think I will try some HC for the Uzi. GW usually is terrible for me 75% of the time.

    CPU only - But can it run Crysis?

    Yes, yes it can! I watched LTT’s video review on AMD’s Threadripper 3990x - a very modest 64 core 128 thread CPU . The thing that got me about it though is they got it playing Crysis solely on the CPU! It is crazy how far AMD have come recently and how hard they’re spanking Intel. Skip to 10 mins in if you don’t want to watch the rest.

    CPU only - But can it run Crysis?

    AMD are tearing Intel to pieces at the moment, it's absolutely fucking hilarious to watch. Intel has been resting on their laurels for years, whilst AMD has been fighting death. They haven't pushed the envelope at all, merely pocketing all that sweet sweet investor wedge and letting their tech stagnate. Turns out that AMD were working quite hard behind the scenes, and not only have their brought the fight to Intel, but they've quite positively wiped the floor with Intel. Make no mistake, they're going to need to work pretty fucking hard to stay ahead as Intel have no doubt just lumped a few hundred million at least in to their R&D department and when that line of chips comes out, AMD will need to be on point. I really hope that AMD also pour tons of money in to GPU development, they've been the budget and mid-range king for a few years now, but we need to see the glory days of the 6970/7970 return. This video is pretty damn good to highlight quite what a remarkable performance AMD has achieved in the CPU world:

    So apparently @BO7H B4RRELS PC issue is now sorted. The reason, with the beauty of hindsight, is that the PC has had both Nvidia and AMD graphics cards in it and neither of these registry entries cleared up completely.

    I'm back baby!

    Your plan sounds really solid, kinda the best way to about it. Pila is too easy, great for shooting down and respectable splash radius. RPG is again really good, it shoots fast. Only Downside is the aerial shotdowns. Now as RPG goes the best things are counter UAV, VTOL because they move very little. The personal UAV's are good as well when they stop moving or the guy is camping. As a rule, All those 3 streaks counter UAV/personal uav/VTOL They all count as Aerial/Ground and the counter and personal count as support streaks challenge also. This applies to all launchers. "Stripes" the challenge, you have to have cold blooded equipped for them to count even tho it doesn't tell you any of this. Joker, Great Splash damage good for multi kills. Great at killing the 1 shot kill e.g UAV/CUAV/Personal UAV. Good at killing sentry guns from a safe distance. The obvious downside to the Joker is "the delay" the amount of times a team mate will shot down a streak with a pila or with gun bullets. While your missile is still traveling. It's worse when it's gravy ones like CUAV/personal because they count as ground streaks and easy to kill. Also with RPG/Joker/Strella your best by shooting a clip or 2 of your gun into the VTOL first to damage it to ensure the finishing "hunter" kill. However risky with the Joker delay. Best to first 2 joker rounds in quick succession and then shoot some ammo into it during the delay periods. Shipment is your friend for attacker/defender. All easy enough, the best map for the Joker if you get your angles. Best spot for joker defends, sit on the "A" slightly to the left and behind the bin/dumpster and aim for the far right corner. On attack, hide behind the barrels and forklift and get an angle to lock on to facing the "C" flag. Be careful to not be too close and kill yourself. I have had doubles/triples and even quads with these. I find the other side to be harder, still possible of course. Again shoothouse is good on either side shooting on the walls (careful again to not shooting yourself) Also shooting from either side into junkyard is good. You can shoot halfway or all the way from end to end. Again on the other side you can counter the office type building with ease. Aim for the right window. Office has no roof. GG camper! I found success on other maps like Azhir cave, Picadilly especially, even Rammaza. So yeah the Strella is the one I didn't gold yet. It's the worst, no lock option and it has a weird delay. Altho it is possible to shoot down UAVs with it better than the RPG. And to top it off it has a terrible blast radius Vs normal enemies. Footsoldiers as it were. If they have EOD it's not worth using. Even without it the enemies soak up the bullets and give you hit markers for days. Also note if you are on top of a flag and shoot down a UAV with a launcher it counts as attacker/defender kills. Only attacker if you shoot while in the process f capturing. Hope these ramblings of a madman are of some help.
