Indeed stay away from Wicca. Only contact with him should be spamming his Xfire.

It will take some time to get adjusted to the bullet deviation, so in your first games try to shoot in the general direction of the enemy only as suppression until you progress to the level where you can make killshots at mid-long range.

Use mumble/VOIP and ask your squadleader or nearby friendlies frequently. Most people will gladly help a new guy.

Stay close to your squadleader and tell him that you are new. He will find the best use of your abilities.

I've heard of people complaining about the instability of WiFi. Give it a good shot with the setup you have now anyway and see how stable it is.

If it does prove to be shaky, I would suggest that you avoid flying any air assets.

The advertised bandwidth for the BF2 engine (of which PR is a mod), is 128k. I'm not sure how much Mumble, Ventrilo, Teamspeak, etc. consume.

---

Many players expect newcomers to have tried out the different assets and experimented with the squad system on a coop server before joining a full out multiplayer match. I started playing PR without having gone through a training server, but I took care to follow instructions as best as possible and not bite off more that I could chew.

I strongly suggest you start off as infantry (regular rifleman [not sniper or AT. Let the ones that know how to use it properly do that for now]). See how the squads move, communicate, and get a handle on the medic system. That should be enough to get you started.

To this day I'll forget how to use certain things or what the better strategies for an asset are. So listen carefully and remind them that you are not an experienced player. If what the squad is doing seems to difficult to grasp at that moment, try joining a different squad.

Neither is having legs, but they are still nice to have

@OP

If people are giving you crap it says something about them. Insulting other players is not in the spirit of PR; PR promotes teamwork and communication. As with any community of people there will be selfish pricks that like to be asses to other people. Luckily we have fewer than most communities, certainly less than the call of duty player base.
However, as said above blame may not lie solely on the other party. I believe that you should never get insulted for having a lack of skill. Some may disagree with that... Those people are called dick heads . With that said, you can't expect everyone to greet you with open arms if you come into the game with the wrong attitude; mainly a "me" attitude.
Now I'm not saying that the player base are all selfless, far from it in fact. However, the majority of the players give at least something to the team, whether it is simply following the squad leader, taking the medic kit when the squad leader asked for a volunteer or driving the logistics truck back to main to get more crates.
In order to fully enjoy this game you need to give something up, rather than just act on your own desires as you would in other games you must sacrifice part of your freedom to the squad leader. Once you do that you find the true fun behind PR. Unfortunately this only works when other people are willing to do the same as well, which is perhaps the greatest reason why a lot of people who are new, or even older players, will be met with insult, when they are only thinking about doing things for themselves.
Other than that, there's the fact that some people are just dicks. It's best to just avoid these people.

Now that I doubt.

If you open BF2 options you will see network selection and choices between 256kbps and T1 (Lan)
Playing on lower bandwidth may result of frequent PB kicks, or lag in game.

I suggest at least 512kbps if using mumble, or any other voip software while playing games. PR Mumble uses up to 60kbps peak, TS3 uses up to 20.

If possible avoid wifi and use wired connections, for stability.

He's probably confusing Kbps with KBps. I'd say he has 50 KBps down which is actually 400Kbps.
