  1. No need for that chiamira, we will continue to do what we do best and move forward. And Joe considering we just got our vent channel on November 7th, I think it's a pretty slim chance we were using it before then.
  2. No but we never once stated we were using OC while competing here at UF so once again, No we didn't break any rules and no we don't cheat. Simple enough?
  3. Really Joe, It's a little humorous that you (The all respectful one) would be the first one to name drop and then say there is something wrong with us. Yes TNU only plays BF3 now with the exception of a few members who play League of Legends and yes we us outside comms to play BF3. We openly came out and said it in order to give other clans the opportunity of trying it for themselves. If we felt it broke rules in any form do you honestly think we just be like "Hey guys, just so you know we are using OC"? No, we don't cheat, yes we use OC in public rooms on BF3, yes I am proud that our level of communication is MUCH better than most because of that fact and YES we will continue to use it unless we are participating in an event that does not allow it. Sarcasm, I can see where it could be taken out of context BUT it was clarified and BF3 is the only game we are playing right now. We never tried to hide anything and anyone who knows us can tell you that we have always tried to help out other clans in the past and will be the first ones to admit when/if we do something wrong. I'm sorry that certain community members here can't simply read a post that was created to help out other clans and simply want to focus on the fact that we are encouraging other clans to use OC on a game that this site has no tournaments for, therefore has no rules against it, and are saying its cheating because the rules for a tournament taking place on a completely different game that we are not participating in because as stated in our declining statement "TNU no longer plays socom 4". We also encourage other clans to use XMB to switch sides rather than the in-game method but nobody has an issue with that. The point is that people need to stop jumping the gun and making accusations with no merit. If you don't like us then that is completely fine, we wont hold it against anyone, we will still say good game and compete in a fair manner, we will still admit our losses and admit when one of our players screws up as we always have. But we will also stand up for ourselves and tell people what we think (In a respectful manner) if we feel they are wrong until we are proven otherwise. I understand we don't have a large fan base and that is due to multiple reasons, Our past here being one of them but also I feel the fact that we are very outspoken and that we are very successful as a clan has something to do with it as well. Like I stated before, this post was made to HELP others. We could have kept it to ourselves and tried to be sneaky but we didnt. Chiamira knows that there a lot of good people and clans in this community and wanted to share our knowledge in order to improve your gaming experience on Battlefield 3. If you feel we are wrong then that's your opinion, but nothing was hidden, nothing broke any rules, and we will be the first ones to stand our ground. We just hope that their are clans who read this in a positive light, the way it was meant to be interpreted and can capitalize on it. And just out of curiosity, would this be the same argument if we said we use the Voice Party Chat provided by BF3 on battelog?
  4. Yes, we (TNU) use outside communication while we play BF3 and to be honest it will make us all the better when it comes to tournament time even if we arent allowed to use OC. I say this because our current communication is allowing us to know what our goals are, set squad responsibilities, and make sure everyone know what there role will be when it comes time to compete. We will not need the OC at that point because we won't need to instruct our players on what to do, they will know already. Clans can point the accusing finger all they want when the time comes but we know what the situation is and have played in tourneys where it is allowed and obviously tourneys where it is not. We have always and will continue to follow tournament rules. If a clan wants to say we "Must be using OC" because there is no way we could know something without it then we will take it as a compliment and deal with it at the time. But it will show us that we are working well together and it will be a result of all the massive communication that we've had in preparation. The point of this post was to help other clans out because we know that clans are having issues playing with there teammates. Nobody is being forced to use it (Although I think a lot will take advantage). And nobody is saying it will be used during tournament play (Although it will be if the rules allow it). We are simply trying to allow other clans to enjoy the game as we do by providing work-arounds to the flaws currently in the game.
  5. I think people are looking for something extra when it comes to sequels though. Rather than the same game simply redone, people want to see them improve it. You can say they are with COD Elite but to be honest its really just them finding ways to make extra money off of something that should already be included in the game. Same goes for "Monthly DLC" Fact is that the first 6 months of DLC are already completed and could have been shipped in game, but by them not including it and asking people to chip in $10 bucks a month its a way of asking for Pay to Play without making players feel forced. It's there way of saying, hey you can play our game for free but chances arent you wont be able to play with your friends because they aren't as cheap as you are and bought the god damn expansion packs. While I do enjoy playing the COD series I get bored of it entirely too quickly to justify spending the extra money to play the new maps they come out with since I know I'll only get a few weeks out of them and then have to do it all over again then next time im bored enough to actually put the game into my playstation. When you get a sequel to a game you want to see significant improvements being made that justify the 2 years they put into it, not recycled buildings and the same gun mechanics. Maybe take the time to fine tune everything, installed a more involved clan feature, a more prominant party system, and some major functionality upgrades. All this can be done and still maintain the integrity of the game itself without changing how its played. Its just doing things that make it more involved and more convenient for the gamer playing it.

    its alright but how in the hell are they able to render out dinosaurs pretty well but the muzzle flash on the guns looks like a lightning bolt flashing on the screen. Not to mention the render of the destroyed planet looked like something on PS2. Dialog and all that was mediocre though.
  7. Yea I'm going to be gettign BF3 but TNU is also looking into Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. GR:FS has added a lot of properties I have been waiting for including the suppressive camera shake, hacking your opponents, and teamwork incentives to help capture intel.
  8. Yea the cars and large skylines give it away but the building textures and shading are almost perfect.
  9. http://pc.ign.com/articles/118/1184814p1.html If they can pull this off on the next console I'll be floored.
  10. Hey fellas I picked up 2 whole chickens this afternoon and I'd like to do them in the smoker on Thursday. I figured I would stop by and see if anyone had any suggestions for dry rubs or injection marinades.
  11. While I'd like to see it happen why go with Socom 1? Why not Socom II or S3 which most people seem to favor over 1.
  12. no, my clan mate just got the YLOD on his old 60GB and sony still allowed him to upgrade for $99.
  13. lmfao that hilarious. Glad that prick got what was coming to him
