Unhappy n00b here...

As you might guess, I'm pretty new to the mod. Most of my time on it has been spent practicing and flying helis in cooperative mode - I've only been online 3 or 4 times, the last of which being last night. I made sure to not use limited kits and tried to support the squad as much as possible but someone decided to spout off about me being useless and told me to leave the server (I did, but only because my tea was ready). I'm just asking that people be a little more accepting of us n00bs and not forget that they were learning about the mod once too.
Also, are there any servers I could join with open squads and nice people who won't kick me from them?
Thanks everyone.

Actually, there are usually a good amount of good people that have squads that allow newbies to the mod in, I'm one of those people.

Just practice in Co-Op then try in real games

Remember to listen though, that's the key element in PR.

sorry, but that has to be the most epic line i've ever read xD

well only thing i can tell you is that you communicate (a lot but not too much cuz then everyone gets annoyed) and follow the SL where ever he goes and do what ever he says, if he tells you to stay in that corner for the next 15mins you do that with a smile on your face also learn how to shoot properly, some people are just jerks usually the guys who knew everything in PR from the 1st day they installed it, find a server you think is good and has a fair amount of english speaking users and also has teamwork in it, find a Voip squad and stick with them, there are some people that will help you out a great deal when playing the game, but some are just hot heads so dont mind them, try to see who are the regulars on the server you play and stick with them especially if the SL a lot and are good at it.

if it was a SQ member that told you that, just tell them to shut up, SL has the final word on who is useful and who is not.

take a rifelman kit before you learn how to use the other kits, or you can use the medic kit if you dont want to shoot too much, but make sure you get someone to teach you all the little tricks.

There is only one unforgivable lie That is the lie that says, This is the end, you are the conqueror, you have achieved it and now all that remains is to build walls higher and shelter behind them. Now, the lie says, the world is safe.? The Great Khan.

40k is deep like that.

Welcome to forums and welcome to battlefield. As in real army, there are many d-bags on servers who think you own them world just because you are new. But major part of our community is not like that, so just take your time, read closely to manual and pay your dues as rifleman, see what others do and you'll learn pretty quick.

If violence isn't the answer, then you obviously need more violence.

There are some friendly guys on TG and if you come on the right time you can play with me and I'll show you the ropes.

In the event you join anyone's squad, be sure to tell them that you are new to the game and be sure to always follow their exact orders and if you are unsure; just ask.

You've also got to look at why that person spouted off at you, what could you have done differently, was there something you did wrong which you can prevent in future situations etc. Sometimes the only way you'll really learn is through learning via mistakes, so you'll make a few mistakes now and then, just be sure not to repeat them in future.

Also one other thing VOIP works wonders if you need help learning, so be sure to have a mic.

Tactical gamer is a good server.
UKWF (UK warefare) is a good server as most people who play there are english and nice people

if someone tells you to leave the server for a reason like that just ignore them, your trying arn't you? and thats all that counts, this game is for fun even though some might disaggree with me.

The folks over at Tactical Gamer and Alpha are great communities to get involved with. Both communities are heavily involved with the usage of mumble. The Alpha guys are typically found in mumble in their own mumble channel playing on other servers, so feel free to join their channel and say hello. The TG server is full at 62 so you might have to auto deploy to get in.

Cheers.

The TG supporting member thing is evil! It kicked me to make room for a supporting member. :P

I remember being a noob, but remember to stick with it. In many ways it's a lot better for new players with the co-op mode. I remember messing around on local servers for months before I tried the game online back in .6. I'll probably have to do that again when I can finally get back to PR as it's going to be over a year without PR before I can get back to it.
