6-7000 hours? That's like working an office job for four years! How does one achieve that?! Why does one achieve that?! Has this individual sought help from an addiction charity?

It's possible that 6-7k is an overestimate, but 5-6k is a very solid guess. This guy just spent a lot of time with Pokemon sorting of *hanging around*. You know, he'd be watching TV, or waiting for a train, just playing some Pokeymans in the background. That time added up over the years.

I don't know if he's still as hooked as he was. He discovered DOTA and Magic: The Gathering, and took to them with gusto.

Never noticed this thread before...
Real Name - Andy

What do you do when not slaughtering TR scum? - I work for the company the runs the HMRC's computer systems. I'm the tech lead for one of the many teams that support/maintain/fix the live systems, plus a little dev work to spice things up a bit. So, basically, if you get falsely arrested for tax evasion, it's probably my fault...
As well as playing computer games, I go to a boardgaming club once a week.
What brought you to Rock Planet Shotgun/Rock Traitor Shotgun? - Joined PS2 in the beta (played PS quite a bit), but never played that much as it's not great fun without an outfit. Heard about the outfit and eventually got around to giving PS2 another go back in June/July.
Were/are you active in another RPS community? - No
Anything else you want to know? - Given that I played PS quite a lot and I've been playing PS2 since beta, and other FPS games for over a decade. Why am I so terrible?
Picture (if you want) - erm.... no.

Real Name - Craig
Age/Location - 27 / Southgate (North London)
What do you do when not slaughtering TR scum? - Recently returned to studying after living in the Czech Republic for 3 years. I enjoy a good board game and reading.
What brought you to Rock Planet Shotgun/Rock Traitor Shotgun? - Internet search was how I found it but was interested by the fact the RPS community occasionally has real life socials.
Were/are you active in another RPS community? - nope
Anything else you want to know? - I am new to PS2 and the big draw for me is team play and being a useful cog in getting things done, so what is the best way to regularly play as part of an organised squad? Also having not played a fps for a while I need to learn to aim again so whilst supporting my team as medic/engineer appeals I worry (based on zergsperience so far) I will end up being a heal bot and not shooting much, should I consider HA?
Looking forward to playing with you all.

The most organised nights are our StratGir-Nights every Thursday.
The class-choice is really personal AND situation-based (at least for me). If you want to support you could go for Medic; at least it's a Combat Medic so you can shoot some guys in the face with a Medic, too. As Heavy you'll have a greater chance at 1v1 engagements, but as Medic you're gaining xp much faster if you're good at supporting.
Engie could be a good choice, too - I played mostly that in the beginning.
EDIT: and of course - welcome here

Medics make a lot of certs and their weapon class (Assault Rifles) is really good. Better than the Carbines that Engineers get.

Engineers give you quite a few options - dropping ammo, supporting MAXes, repairing turrets/terminals and complimenting vehicle play, if that's something you are interested in. But to support an infantry group nothing is as good as a medic. Watching a whole squad get blown to bits, then popping out of your hidey hole and bringing every one of them back to life is great.
So welcome, Kreggurree! Have some fun and you will learn the rest of the game as you go.

I'm one of the most balanced player in the outfit as far as class uses is concerned (most used class at 24% playtime, least used at 8% playtime) but I will usually have a class that I'm currently very fond of. For example, because i was rusty regarding multiplayer FPS but still wanted to help the team, I started as an Infiltrator. I loved being sneaky and hacking stuff behind the enemy back. Played that almost exclusively for 70-80h. Then i started to want to see others stuff, and I played almost exclusively Heavy. I've almost never played infiltrator since i switched to Heavy. But now, I've also dropped the heavy, and I'm currently on a LA binge. I'm pretty sure i will switch again, maybe come back to a previous class, because every hundred hour in the game give you new insights into what each class can do.
You shouldn't really listen to people to decide which class to play. A lot of people have a favorite class, and hate a few others, but no one agree on which is which. All classes are useful, all have their undying fans, and also their relentless detractors. It's 100% related to personal preferences.
So just try all the classes a few times, and a few of them should "feel right" to you. Focus on them, try to understand what you can do with them and you will probably notice one or 2 are the ones that you currently feel confident/happy to play. Later on, after dozens or hundred hours of play may want to revise your choices, and try some new things. But you will have learned a lot in the meantime, and be more able to know what to do with each class.

Picked up PS2 on Sunday and wondered where it had been all my life. I've just got back into PC gaming after a five-year hiatus of Xbox loneliness. I cut my teeth on Counterstrike in the 1.3+ days, back when games were hard and online communities were shunned by the "real" folk. Nowadays I've spent so long with auto-aimed thumbsticks and perks and killstreaks that I've forgotten how to play real games...
I joined [RPS] after two hours of playing the game and realising it sucked without people to play with. Hopefully I'll be a fairly active player (if I ever learn how to get enough XP to buy anything reasonable...a sniper that isn't a 1HK to the head? You have to be f'king kidding me...)

What do you do when not slaughtering TR scum? - Talk rubbish, mostly
What brought you to Rock Planet Shotgun/Rock Traitor Shotgun? - Random Reddit thread/appreciation for the website.
Were/are you active in another RPS community? - Nope
Anything else you want to know? - How the hell do I play PS2 without dying every twenty seconds!

But positioning is the key. I have average aim, but after learning where and how to position myself my, KDR (I use this as a personal measure, by no means a comparison to other players) has increased between 2-4x as a heavy (more so as a MAX) over the last month.
Honestly, the first 20 levels are a nightmare, as you learn which class you enjoy, and start to get certs to buy things like weapons and utilities. After that, it's much more downhill. It's all experience so try to take away more from the experience than trying to be good at the game to start with.
time and experience make it easier

Welcome to RPS, qpop!
If you do want to pursue sniping for solo or casual team play, the XM98 is the basic bolt action sniper rifle (1 hit kill to the head) for the Vanu. It costs 100 certs to unlock.

Stick to your squad and platoon like glue, obey your squad/ platoon leader. The technical term for being on your own/ freelancing in this game is "victim".
Even if you are careful, positioning yourself carefully, choosing your targets with care, staying with your squad, you will die. Often. Frequently with no clue as what the hell happened when you die. Learn to accept that dying is just part of the game, and that the only penalty is the 20 second wait till you can respawn, assuming that a medic doesn't get you up almost immediately. K/D ratio means fuck all, and most of the other measurables as almost as useless.
Oh, and laugh at my jokes. Or Else....Nae King! Nae Quin! Nae Laird! Nae Master! We willnae be fooled again!
Do not fuck with the Internet. It is smarter, meaner, and far more ill-tempered than you will ever be.
