I see nothing being taken personally. I was pointing out that some people have different opinions of games.

I guess I just kind of wanted BF2142 to be like Unreal Torunament where the game was really meant for Online play but you could still run around and do each type of game play against various difficulty level of bots. Like in UT you could get some training before going straight online.

One game I did play Multiplayer only was Diablo 2. I went straight to online play and played the game in open rooms going through the campaign and sometimes meeting up with others to help in quests. That was really fun to me, I rarely even touched the single player part.

You can do that, but it's limited. It's worth bearing in mind that each BF2 and 2142 map has three versions scaled for the type of server (16, 32 or 64 players).

Ultimately though the only way you will ever get good at any multiplayer-based game is to put in the hours. It took me months to get to level of CS:S I'm at now (I consider myself good, but not great), but that's to be expected when a dedicated player base has been playing the game and its' derivatives for 8 years. You WILL get better if you play for longer, just don't expect it to be easy.

Oh, and for the love of God, don't join random games on XBox Live. It'll put you off multiplayer for life.

Thats what has probably done it for me. I consider myself a pretty good Halo Player, i dont play it for 9 hours a day so im not like super hardcore player. But just going on those random games and hearing all these people jsut talk so much damn smack has probably turned me off to wanting to play online. It's not that I can't handle criticisim and dumb asses, it just gets old.
