well iv downloaded PR and not even played original bf2 so cant get more noob than that this is my experience.

i decided unwisly maby to take the officer kit and lead a squad using voip on al basrah( my favourite map) anyway learned the commands to issue waypoints and was leading my section across streets and up allyways on a search and destroy mission and was surprised to find that the entire squad of random people i dont even know are following my orders and are moving in good order(ownage).
we start taking fire from a 2 story building across the road and the adrenaline is pumping im ordering suppression fire on the windows from the machine gunner and rpgs r flyin over my head from the roof top, realising that we are getting bogged down in this allyway with cocktails flying at us and bullets pinging off the walls voip is getting very intense and i didnt realise i was taking this game so serious that im screaming orders on vent to fix bayonets( yea i no there are none lol) and deploy a smoke screen on the road, once that smoke was deployed im up and running across the middle of the street shouting "COVERING FIRE,WITH ME LADS TALLY HO,running though the smoke tossing granades into the windows,i leap over the small wall into the garden,switch to burst fire mode on my sa80 and charge up the stairs blasting an insurgent in the head multiple times not even stopping to check if hes dead, clear the ground floor and within seconds im charging onto the roof screaming on voip to keep the fight up max aggression, onto the roof blow a few hoels into the rpg and sniper on the roof and secure the roof before finally realsing what iv just done.i order my men to regroup do an ammo check and health check in the house and i begin to reflect on my first section attack on a defensive postion when petrol bombs start hitting the building and my men are getting cooked alive inside the house and we have no escape and we burn to death in a gaypile on the firstfloor :sad:.
at this point i take my headset off to take a rest and turn around and my dad is standing at the door stairing at me shaking his head saying what the f==k is wrong with me, i try to explain to him that iv just led an assult on a enemy postion but he walked off to make the dinner.

my first round of pr was on fools road, was in position of of the truck looking out the back as we got chased down the road by a BRDM2 with everyone yelling over the mics. it was great , the guy in position 6 next to my fired an AT4 narrowly missing the BRDM2 and hitting the ground infront of it causing it to smoke. we got away via a friendly apc helping us out. it was so harrowing

My first was Kashan. Didn't turn out too well, since I dropped into the middle of a TK-fest at the US main. Then I got in a black hawk that got shot down going into the bunker complex.

First good round was on 7-Gates. This got me hooked on PR: I was playing on an infantry squad as Brits. We were on the frontline nonstop, always first in. I spent most of my time as the squad's medic, keeping our boys alive. My squadleader, Lt. Greenhorn (this was his actual nick) definitely knew what he was doing, because we managed to push all the way up to the Chinese base. It was that day that I really learned what PR was all about.

My first enthralling experience was on Sunset City, as Chinese, I was helping defend a line and I was next to the Support Gunner. I look at him for a second and suddenly he gets shot dead in a volley of fire. I run back around the corner of this T intersection. I crouch at some crates, go full auto, and scope to wards the T-section. Then this American comes around the corner and just as I start to fire he fires at me. I kill him but I'm also suppressed. That moment was a real surge of adrenaline.

So exiting. First kill. No looking back.

JDAM is dropped by the commander, and you don't actually see the aircraft come in.

Lasing a target for the A10, on the other hand... Now that's pretty awesome, if the pilot knows what he's doing.

Great story! Good to hear you had a great first experience!

My oldest memory of PR was when I discovered it in..late '05 I think, it was a bit before I joined the forums. Dont know what version but I had a terrible internet connection at the time so I could only play SP[this was back when PR was similar enough in basic functions to vBF2 to still have SP support]

I was on Kashan with the SAW just MOWING guys down. I knew it was cheesily unrealistic to just be mowing guys down, but I loved how responsive the weapons were, the lack of crosshair, etc. Though the AI at the time wasnt up for PR, everything about it felt so progressive :) I knew that, though small and humble, PR would continue to be my favorite game for a long time. Little did I know that I would be on the DEV team 3 years later and its pretty much the only game I play on a regular basis. Other games get beaten and then tossed aside for a good round of PR :) Haha

I think my most "whoah" moment since then has been seeing the promotional work for Kashan and just having my mind get blown out the back of my head. I could barely comprehend a map that big on BF2 :)

ahhhh, the nostalgia get to you.
Most lol comments ingame squadleading and commanding is "To Victory" as we charge the MEC main on Jabal and "Once more unto the breach, we happy few!" as brit commander on 7 gates, urging 2 squads to make 1 final push for the 2nd flag (they take it with style, not a single man down!)

I've had the OP in my squad a few times, he's a damn fine shot and he's tactically minded, so this is a recommendation for him I guess. I found it funny when I was on Muttrah and he was the only guy in my squad taking the initative to cover the squad from a rooftop while we were under fire, a good 30 seconds or so before I gave the command to do what he was doing; suppressive fire.

Now for my first experience:
I was on Muttrah city in 0.5, I had heard of project reality from playing point of existence 2 (a nice mod but I felt it was a little too close to the gameyness of vanilla). So I hopped onto a chopper (well flown, shock and/or horror) and descended into a street with my squad. As soon as we landed it stopped being a calm cityscape and turned into "HOLY JESUS CHRIST THERE'S FIRE FROM EVERYWHERE, THROW FRAGS, GET DOWN, SUPPRESSIVE FIRE, RRAAAAHHHHH". And from there is developed into actually being able to shoot accurately and make tactical decisions in bf2. I fell in love with the mod right there and I've been playing ever since.

Let me share a little story with you Uladh.

When i first started playing PR, i intended to split my time between PR and vBF2 because i still had 2 weapon unlocks to go in vBF2.

That was about 2 years ago. I still dont have those 2 weapons.

First time was in barracuda in the marshes, I was just lying there not knowing where the hell I was and what the hell to do, listening to my SL shouting 'Run to the side of the river!!!' as we were getting surpressed on all sides. I immediately alt-f4'd and read the manual.

Hahaha that's funny :)

First time I was on PR, I was like wth are all these people talking from? I was scared to death because in BF2 nobody had VOIP, and I was in a dark room turned around and somebody laughed through the microphone I turned the computer off and went downstairs :neutral:

Yeah, I know what you mean. I can still remember my first kill , over in Asad Khal as MEC. Our squads had holed themselves up in the walled compound on the right side of the map, barbed wire and everything on the doors, and an FB in the back. I'd played a couple hours of training/skimerish before this, but nothing really compared. The british sent in their squads in waves on the objective, lobbing grenades all over the place and supressing our defenses so bad that stepping out would have been slaughter. smoke on the battlefield was so thick that you could scarecly even see the man in front of you. Back then, getting shot was a practical nightmare for me, with all the blood effects and all :shock:, so I hung back and took potshots at the enemy.First Kill was just as our defenses were cracking inward and beginning to crumble. Sitting at the multi-level building farthest right on the map, I strafed out into the window port, spotting a brit Officer lying down in front of a wire fence about 50m away. Bullets flying all around me :shock:, I panicked and emptied the whole clip downrange :firing:. Last three shots hit him square-on :shocked:. Probably the most intense in-game combat I'd ever played in a game before.:m1helmet:

Man, I remember my first kill in PR. For the longest time, I only played medic, because I was a terrible shot when I first started playing (WTF NO KROSSHARES OMG THIS IS AMAZING <--- Me when I first started playing).

I honestly can't say I vividly remember my first PR game, but I do remember one of my early games.

I was on Kashan Desert. I was a squad medic, and man oh man, I almost wish I was new to the game again, because when you are a noob you get such an adrenaline rush. So I was sprinting around with my medic bag around, rounds flying past my head, and smoke being deployed everywhere. I spent the whole round hugging my squad leader (I had no idea where to go when I first started playing), and I was actually rewarded for this. My squad leader yelled over VoIP "Shit, this SAW gunner is gonna take us all down, get some smoke up and lets move forward."

I replied with two smoke grenades, took out my medic bag and hung onto my keyboard for dear life. So we are rushing forward screaming, running head on at the bunkers. Two of my squad mates were reluctant to move forward, and they quickly fell to incoming fire. The other two squadmates were trying to go around the back (they too died), so it was just me and my squad lead.

My squad leader climbed out the ditch we were hiding in, just enough so he could take aim at the SAW gunner who killed so many. He left off a shot, missed, and got taken out. He yelled curses over his mic, but I quickly said "Don't worry, I'll get you back up."

The Squad leader, not realizing I had managed to keep up with him, was overjoyed, telling me "Medic, you're a champion man. You're a bloody champion."

I finished the round, got off my computer, and sat down on my couch the rest of the day feeling like I had just saved the world.

My first kill was today. It wasn't much, I shot a medic as he was running away. I also knifed someone that round. It was my 2nd round, and somehow I became SL. If KrazyArab, it was also his second round, reads these forums, thanks for sticking with my crappy squad.

cant remember my first round. Maybe because it was ages ago when PR was still a minimod and more like BF2. But PR slowly changed and so did the Players. I only recently realized how amazing it has become when I joined a BF2 server. I yelled at my Squadmembers to stick together and tried to request a kit at the supplycrate. Then I got kind of frustrated when i couldnt hit a thing with a LMG on 50 meters.

My first great Teamwork experiences date back to when they first introduced the British and destroyable buildings. I dont know what version. We had this nice convoy with Landrovers on some long forgotten desert map. I was one of the .50cal gunners and we got ambushed. We drove into cover and opened fire my SQL was directing us and calling out enemy positions and everybody was reporting what was happening. It was so intense only when I got performens lag from an RPG blowing up the wall in front of me I realized "Wait Its just a game ... Calm down".

I remember my first awesome PR moment. I was in ramiel as an insurgent and I was all alone in my own squad. the whole time I would sit and wait motionless (like I would probly be doing in a real life situation). Occasionally i would spot a US squad around a corner, head them off, and unload killing all of them. I did that many times, only died twice, and got about 20 kills. It remains my best experience ever.
