So, for once we actually managed to gather some troops together for a game that wasn't Uncharted 2. Today, we decided to tackle the realm of Killzone 3 online. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but we quickly realised that we were vastly out of practice.
I (Mephman) was joined by brave warriors in Eskimo Keith, Juxtor, Unholy Angelus and thefenrir, but it seemed that no matter what match we joined, the match-making system always put us on a team that was dire to begin with. The first (proper) match we joined, our team was already down 5-0 in Warzone, so there wasn't much hope of salvaging that. However, in the rounds that followed, our team didn't fair much better either. Quickly out-gunned, the matches degenerated into spawn killing.
It was a shame really, but we still managed to make our own fun. Eskimo Keith and Juxtor decided that they'd become our team's most hated players. How? By choosing the Medic class and constantly reviving people in awkward positions.
After a few rounds where we managed to make little progress due to our teams being terrible, we decided to try out another match. However, as before, we joined a game in which our team were already down 4-0. We did manage to win 2 of the remaining 3 gameplay rounds, but it was still a similar scenario.
So, in short. We tried to play the game and were hideously out of practice. To compound this, the game kept placing us on teams which were absolutely terrible - perhaps to rub it in - and because of this, the only good part of the thing was the constant banter via voice chat!
Oh well, maybe next time we'll have some better luck with the servers. We generally did ok as a clan, but when the rest of the team is so bad, there's only so much you can do. Our star performer was certainly UnholyAngelus though, as he managed to come out on top in most of the matches, and despite the annoying odds stacked against us, was one of the few people to come out with a consistently positive k/d ratio. Well played sir!
