Changes to the BF2 Official Rules of Engagement?

The BF2 Official Rules of Engagement (ROE) is a set of rules that all ranked servers must attempt to follow. Recently, some changes have been proposed to the ROE. I personally find them ridiculous as most of them are based on player opinion rather than actual impact.

No more C4 jeeps? Why don't you just ban assault/support from using "body armor" since it provides an unfair advantage in infantry combat? On a side note, much congratulations goes out to Kiratomato for earning his Expert Assault badge! Now he can stop playing the kit forever! =p

What the....

Words cannot describe this.

Actually, I take that back. Words can, words like:

Z-O-M-G Y-o-u A-r-e A G-U-Y! W-T-F

Best Place to Live?

Apparently, Sugarland has been declared the #3 Best Place to Live in the US. Strangely, Texas was also listed as one of the top states to live in. What's not to love about Texas?

a). Average temperature of about 100000000000000000000000 degrees
b). Jungle-Like Humidity
c). 2 Words: George Bush....
d). Most Executions of any other state in US

It also fails to mention that several cities in Texas are also on the Fattest Cities in the US List. I count 5 in the top 15. I am determined not to contribute to that list in the near future.

I am not a Doctor....

..but I play one on TV!! Hugh Laurie also makes more per episode than most real doctors make in a year. Rightfully so!

It takes hard work and dedication to be a true medic whore. Real medics use shock paddles for kills! Of course his stats are glitched like hell, but that menacing pose with shock paddles in hand strikes fear in the hearts of enemies.

BF2, 1.4 Beta

Apparently, EA released the 1.4 Beta patch today. Includes a new map and a new "Infantry Only" setting (guessing not allowed on ranked servers).

July 4th Weekend

Spent the July 4th holidays in Austin. I wanted a change of pace this holiday from the usual (Sit in front of computer) so I went up to Austin to visit some old high school friends. It was a fun weekend. I ended up getting a new haircut, new glasses and a bunch of new clothing. Seeing as how I had no fashion sense, this experience was quite eye-opening. What? I have to color coordinate? Why are "artificial" holes on clothing considered "cool" and "natural" holes from wear and tear considered stupid... even though they are in the exact same locations. I suppose I will never understand these great mysteries of life.

After getting a make over, I ended up going clubbing on saturday with the BluPnutMM couple and the high school friends. People who know me, know that I am quite the party animal (if by party, you mean a party in a RPG....) so it will come as no surprise that I was exceptionally stiff and totally incompetent when it comes to dancing. After clunking around for a while, I was told to "just imitate" what other people were doing. Now, this is sound advice and all, but there were basically NO male people dancing. All of them seemed to enjoy drinking more than dancing. This comes as a problem since I don't drink. Despite all the awkwardness, it ended up being a fun night. Now I just need my eardrums to recover a bit from the LOUD music... forever should be long enough time for them to recover.

We also watched a couple of movies. Super"man"(stalker) Returns was a decently made movie although they altered quite a few things. First, Superman is no longer this pure, innocent being who stands for Truth, Justice, and the American Way. Well, maybe the American Way since he uses his Xray vision to spy on his former GF who is married, and tries to steal her back away from her husband and family. He even has a illegitimate child with Lois that Lois' husband believes to be his own!! How awesome is that! I can just see Superman on Jerry Springer now:

Springer: So... the baby isn't yours???
Husband: No Jerry, This *beep* *Beep* piece of *beep* came behind my back and knocked up my wife, man, if I could get my hands on him, I would *beep*ing kick his *beep*ing ass!
Springer: Well, now you will get your chance, Audience, let's welcome Superman!!
Audience: BOO!!!!!, BOO!!!!!!
Superman: *Zorch* carbonizes entire audience with eyeball lasers then uppercuts husband's head causing it to explode. *flys off with Lois*.
Springer: ... Now let's reflect on these events *insert ridiculous speech on morality*

Second movie we watched was Click... The movie had a funny premise and the execution was pretty good. It was almost a bearable Adam Sandler movie until the ending. For those who don't want it spoiled, Do not highlight: It was all a dream!!!! Yay... Deus ex machina

One of the best parts of the trip was the delicious sushi. Apparently, my friends have great connections in Austin and knew several people who either worked or owned their own sushi bars. We had hand-made sushi rolls and other yummys at a fraction of the normal cost.. I would definitely go back just for that!

All in all, it was a great trip and I would definitely go back again.

On a wonderful side note, much commendation to Catnipped for getting her Knife Badge!!!oneoneone11
