The SOCOM Clan is off and running! We've been having great turnouts and have been having a lot of fun playing against ourselves and others.

If you would like to join the clan, email me at angryj3000@yahoo.com or post in this thread so I can send you an invitation.

Any relevant updates to the clan, match times, and practice times will be posted here.

Please post practice times you'd like to see in this thread, or post practice times that you've set up on your own here. For example, if you'd like to practice on Thursday, post a message about practice on Thursday at the specified time and time zone, on the specified server so as many as possible can show up. Don't forget to include the name of and password for the room you've created if applicable.

If you do schedule a practice or match, please follow through. Set up your room on the server and wait at least 15 minutes for people to show up.

Update! - and Request
I just registered our clan at www.gamespy.com/socom . In thier clan registration, they ask for a clan logo. I know there are some kick_ass photoshoppers around here, so if anyone could make a Spec-Otts logo, that would be super cool. :D


Known Matches:
Match versus Home Theatre Forum Clan (HTF) - TBA

Current Practices:
Mondays at 8:00 PM Central Time, on US CENTRAL 1 or 2 server. Room name: DVD TALK. No PW.

Saturdays at 8:00 PM Central Time, US CENTRAL 1 or 2 server. Room Name: DVD TALK.

Can you change your name but retain your stats? No big deal, just wondering if your rating has to start back at 0.

The problem was that it seems [DVD]MasterofDVD is too long of a name to enter in. Guess I have to think of something else.

I've emailed jw2299 for an invite. Looking forward to official clan games.

8PM eastern, if your interested. if more people are interested, we should set up a game. I'd do it, but my dsl upload speeds are horrible.

are we having a game this week? mon 8 central?

Oh come on people, who cares about football? Just switch back and forth, like when you die or something. I really wanted to see a lot of players tonight.

Lethal Nemesis
09-30-02, 08:41 PM
Well, I signed on and looked for any of you guys, but I only saw ICEMAN on the players list. Unfortunately, I couldn't find which specific game he was in, so I just played a few random games. Pretty fun. The team I played on came back from being down 0-5 to win it all. :D

Ralph Wiggum
09-30-02, 10:23 PM
Good game tonight. My network connection went out and I couldn't get back on. :(

I definitely need to practice more and am looking forward to the next game!

caiman
09-30-02, 10:42 PM
I think they are still playing, but I had to get off (I'm [DVD] VIC VEGA). I had a great time, and we had a pretty decent turnout (8 dvdtalk members I think). One thing we should do is decide on which game type we should play. While I enjoy demolition, I would have liked to play a little bit of everything. Maybe we should stick to a medely?

Oh man, Lethal, you missed it. There were some technical problems with disconnects and stuff, but we played with at least 8 players from our clan at a time.

Of course I really like this game, but this was the best time i've ever had playing SOCOM. I hope we can do it again soon. :):):)

Yep, it was a good time. I loved that last game. I planted the bomb, and you and I took watch. Then an enemy tossed a grenade at me, I barely escaped, and then he wasted me. The guy goes to difuse the bomb, gets to it with one second left, and gets his ass blown away. Some funny funny ****.

It was a lot of fun. I was on as Convoy. I either survived through the whole thing or died a horrible death.

Maybe we can schedule more games during the week. Maybe we could work on tactics and whatnot, since we do have a standing challenge...

Vic, what was up during the jungle game. You got shot like 20 times and didn't die. :)

cartman
09-30-02, 11:11 PM
Fun stuff, but I had a couple problems. Maybe someone knows what would cause them:

1) In a few of the games, when I would fire my weapon (R1), it would also trigger either the command list to come up, or make me start changing my stance. If I left the game and returned, it might or might not go away.

2) At one point, it seemed like 4 of us were killed at the same time by Vic, then an invisible person came and took the bomb from my dead body.

Other than that, it was fun. I seem to be a bit better at the get\plant bomb levels than the deatmatch one we played.

That was some serious lag. I noticed that at times we had a low ping rate (SOCOM server problems). But I have never lagged like that before. I noticed something was wrong when I shot a guy and didnt kill him, then I just died. But from everyone else's POV, I was a alive and kickin', just not dying. Lag sucks.

Ralph Wiggum
09-30-02, 11:25 PM
I'm definitely up for some more frequent games.

I thought that as time went on, especially in the blizzard level, the tactics and teamwork started to come together.

Sounds like you guys had lots of fun. Be sure to post whether you guys are going to have another practice other than Monday nights and what time is convenient for you.

I was on as dvdgopack2, I had a great time. This was my first time and I got to improve some, but I did get some good shots off and got a few kills. I had problems with my headset, was it tonight or is it normally like that. Anyway keep it updated when we'll play next, because I'd love to get in on that. Thanks. Later

I wish I coulda played longer, but my headset broke. so I disconnected to try and fix it. I think someone pulled too hard on it or something.

does anyone know if theres a way to get the sound come out of the tv speakers instead of the headset? at least I could follow in structions instead of running around like a moron.

Gallant Pig
10-01-02, 12:37 AM
AFAIK, there's no way to get the sound to come out of the speakers instead of the headset. You could try taking the game back and telling them it was defective or something (maybe it was?).

ME2
10-01-02, 12:56 AM
I was wondering if there is anyone interested in playing tomorrow night. Tuesday night at 8,9, or 10 eastern. Just putting it out there to see if there is an interest by enough people.

I'll play tomorrow. I had a blast tonight. I think we have some pretty good players on our clan. Let me know when we're gonna play again (or I'll just see you next week, same time ,same place). This is [DVD] Boston G, by the way

s}{ammer
10-01-02, 01:41 AM
Yeah it was tough. Denver came in flat and didn't deserve to win, though I was happy to see them come on strong and not quite in the second half. I have yet to play with more than one person from here. I really need some practice with these guys.

I'll be on tonight 8 central is 9 eastern for me. So I'll be there then. If no one else answers, how about CENTRAL 2 again. Look for DVDTALK. Who wants to set it up when they get online. Later

That sounds good, u can go ahead and set it up if you'd like. Could you make it a medely? And set the capacity at 16. Any disagreements?

Enjoyed the game tonight until I got kicked off for some reason. By the time I got logged back on the game was over. Apparently Dirty Steve didn't think too much of us DVD Talkers. Maybe we should start password protecting our games. The password could be fightclub. :)

s}{ammer
10-01-02, 10:13 PM
After we won the second game it kicked me out to the start menu again. Had a godo time though, nice to see plenty of us show up. I actually played better tonight than I usually do and thanks to the person who told me how to go fully auto with the gun. :)

What did Dirty Steve say?

I think making our games Clan only would help us get to know each other's tendencies. We can play open games, but our "practices" should be closed.

What do you guys think?

Who's up for playing tomorrow night (Wed) at 8? :)

If memory serves, first he was starting the "DVD ****" talk, then wandered into the "your clan sucks" stuff. Just the typical 12 year old (or mentality of).

As a general statement, I apologize if I don't type too much in the chat room or use shortcuts in typing, but entering 1 character every 4 seconds gets annoying real fast.

10-01-02, 11:59 PM
Yeah, Dirty Steve was talking smack, but I don't think too much of stuff like that. I agree that our clan practices should be password protected. Then when we're ready for some real games with others, we can unlock the room or join another game.

Ralph Wiggum
10-02-02, 12:49 AM
I had a good time tonight as well. I left before Dirty Steve started pouting thankfully. I was kicked off after getting stuck at a lobby loading screen and came back, but about half of the people were gone.

I don't have a USB keyboard either so I really can't chat. I'll eventually crack and pick one up.

Your weapon. Click the L3, and you can go from single shot, burst, and full auto.

OK, so we'll be in Central 1 or 2. Who's gathering the game? Is anyone besides Lethal and I interested?

Should I put another scheduled time (or two) in the first post of the thread?

I understand that not everyone can play on Mondays at 8:00 my time, so Why don't we have one or two more set practice times, and people can volunteer to host the rooms on specified nights.

Thoughts?

hey, we played a lot tonight and I learned alot, like those guys must play all the freakin time. I am such a noob compared to them. Sorry about that last game, I took nightwing and tyrant out. Can't win a game when you kill your entire team yourself. Time to practice. I kinda like the friendly fire on though. Once you get used to it. We do need more practice.

Lethal Nemesis
10-06-02, 02:02 AM
Yeah, we need to practic with FF on.

Right, j? ;) :p

10-06-02, 02:28 AM
friendly fire has gotta be on...it makes things so much more exciting. I can't wait to get my replacement headset so I can play with you guys.

10-06-02, 02:30 AM
yeah, early on J was taking all of us out, but I can't say anything since I wiped out my entire team at the end of the night. ;)

Cowboy, just play without the headset. Just pick one guy and follow him.

Will we play with passwords Monday? If so, how will the password be given out

s}{ammer
10-06-02, 11:05 AM
I think we have to play with passwords. If we don't use passwords and have friendly fire on it's not going to work. Random people will just come in and kill us. We did have a great time last night even though there was a bunch of lag. It also sucked how I found out we were playing with friendly fire on.

Angry J and I were walking out of the tunnel on Abandoned and we started receiving fire. J took off back in the tunnel with me right behind him and then spun around and shot me. :) I do really like the friendly fire option though. It makes it more realistic and you have to think before you shoot.

jw2299
10-06-02, 11:22 AM
Sorry about killing everyone on my own team! :p If it makes anyone feel better, I took out some of the HTF'ers when they were on our team too.

I definitely think we should practice with passwords on. Also, if we don't have enough people from our clan alone to have a good 2-teamed game, whomever creates the room has the option to assign clan members to a particular team. That way, whenever someone from the clan joins the game they will automatically be assigned to your team. That would be a good way to play a [DVD] vs. ??? game with friendly fire on.

I had tons of fun playing last night with our clan and with the HTF'ers. Lag was a problem, but I think it's going to be the nature of the beast until SOCOM servers get straightened out.

And now for the bad news. I won't be able to play online for at least a week! -eek- We're getting our floors refinished and we won't be at home for a week. After that, we won't be able to put furniture back in the room for a few more days. So, I won't be able to play Monday.

I'm also going to put another "regular" practice time in the first post of the thread so people who missed a session can play. How about Fridays or Saturdays at the same time?

I hope I can make it on Monday night.

I was wondering what is the latest that people can/are playing? I would love to get in some late night games, but I am on Mountain time so that can be difficult for people back east.

Sorry about my sporatic playing last night, but I kept getting kicked for some reason. It was pretty funny listening to the "terrorists" talk when I would join and be put on their team. Let's just say they didn't think too much of clan DVD :).

Yeah, one guy in particular, Milk Man, when I played with some terrorists didn't like our clan. He kept saying how we sucked, but then he camped all game, every game and only had 2 kills after it was all over.

I know they didn't think to much of it, but when the chance to switch teams came, they all jumped on board as soon as they could. :lol:

I was with cartman on the terrorists team when they were talking crap. The next round I simply started tossing grenades at the terrorists even though I was one of them. :)

How come we don't talk to each other? I'm not really sure it would help me, though, as I apparently suck. After 2 hours last night I finally gave up because I had gotten like 4 kills tota. :( Oh well....

On some levels "we" are chatty (mainly the "get the bomb" levels), and others, not so much. I don't say too much unless I am close to completing an objective, though I'm sure a little chatter would help the teamwork out.

s}{ammer
10-06-02, 06:09 PM
Yeah, we really need to work on team work. It got better the longer we played last night though. By the time we got to rats nest we were kicking some arse. I know my biggest flaw is that I do not know all the maps, so when we get to a map like rats nest I know it better so I am a little better playing there. That one bitter jungle I think it's called, I had never played it, so I was the last person alive and the terrorists set the bomb up, I went to their camp instead of ours and we lost. I think we should pick a couple maps and learn them well, also working on team work is a good idea.

OK, so for tomorrow's game, we'll have a password and we'll start talking.

Last Monday, I noticed there wasn't a lot of talking, but on Tuesday, we began talking to each other. We should also select someone to gather the room and set the password. Would posting it here be a good idea, or would sending it through e-mail to the clan members work better?

s}{ammer
10-06-02, 07:10 PM
I would also suggest we get someone to start being our sniper. We need at least one person to fill each position, sniper is pretty important. There are a couple levels that are perfect for sniping. You know, we really need our own area to duscuss our strategy instead of posting it here in an open forum. Angry J we really need to kick it a bit here. The HTF guys are lightyears ahead of us right now.

Lethal Nemesis
10-06-02, 08:36 PM

Cornemite
10-06-02, 09:09 PM
Why don't we start a private Yahoogroup or something? Angry J can send out invites to the clan members, and we can discuss strategy and whatnot there.

If we discuss any strategy here, we're telling our opponents what we're going to do.

10-07-02, 07:34 AM
So we're still on for tonight at 8 central right? If there is going to be a password e-mail it to me. I would be p***d if I didn't get to play.

Gromit
10-07-02, 08:07 AM
I think I can make 9 eastern (8 central) tonight. Post a clan message via the game, post here or send emails.

If someone wants to be a designated sniper, we need a cover man for him. Someone who can cover his back while he's blind to everything but his scope.

I'm no expert (not even close), but I'd also suggest teams of 2-3. Alpha team, Bravo team, etc. I do a lot better when I work with someone else.

Maybe 2 teams of 3, Alpha and Bravo, 1 sniper and 1 sniper's buddy.

Strategy of course would change depending on the game type and map.

Anyone ever set up a mailing list? That could be an alternative to a forum. Whichever is easier.

Guys,
I was just wondering if the HTF/DVD Talk practice is still on for tonight.
We can learn from each other, as well as keep the idiots(i.e. non-members/team players) out of the room.

Just let me know, Mr. Angry J.

Sincerely,

I've set up mailing lists using yahoogroups before. I'm willing to do it if Angry J gives the OK.

I'd also like to snipe. I'm not too familiar with all of the boards, though... The spotter should know the boards like the back of their hand. Maybe even use a silenced weapon, in case the sniper misses some one, or if they have to kill to protect the sniper.

I also think dividing into teams would work well. maybe a machine gunner and 2 people with assault rifles. And lots more communication. If we're good, we can set up fields of fire and whatnot

As far as practice with HTF goes, you guys can work it out since I won't be around.

I just set up specotts@yahoogroups.com. I've invited Angry J. Once he joins, I'll hand over mod repsonsibilities to him. All the other people who are in our clan can join by going to the yahoogroups site and signing up. Angry J and I will have the power to approve all members, so make sure you include your clan name in your sign up.

Yeah, I was working on grenades all night. I got pretty good though, I won at least 6 or 7 rounds all night using them. I am getting better at switching weapons and i have taken the suggestion of making the grenade my secondary weapon to make it quicker. Those two in a row were odd. I tossed a grenade out the door and I could have sworn I saw it go out the door, then I turn towards the other door and I was hit. The second one I think hit the wall and bounced all the way back to me.
