    I'm at uni, as are most posters in this thread I would have thought.
    I know, but I meant doing coursework etc.

    It must take ages to get platinum on any game.

    No, sorry. Don't really use my PS3 to do that sort of thing.

    Google is your friend I think. Unless someone else on here can help you out of course.

    Yeah although there are some genuine stats up there as well. They should say who's going to host before the game starts!
    Yeah I've seen the genuine stats, from people who've played it for 7 days...I can't believe it though...how do they clock up that much?

    And yeah it should tell you who the host is or at the very least it should only find games with a host that has less than say 100ms ping...but again that would require the game to have already determined a host before the lobby is full.

    Probably gap year students or professionals! They should confirm the host before the game starts (like they do atm) and give you the option of leaving the lobby if it's not your cup of tea.

    Erm I was thinking more like unemployed saddos with nothing better to do! :rofl:

    But yeah I guess you'd get the odd pro or gap year student too! :p:

    Well the thing is that wouldn't be too bad except that the host will always have an advantage over all the other players whichever way you look at it. It can't be avoided unless they make it server based so if it just told me what my ping is in relation to the host then at least people could play together without lagging. Cos I despise getting shot round a corner by someone who wasn't there only to watch their killcam and see something completely different!

    Even with server based games, like RFOM you could play with Australians but the awkward thing was you'd probably both die in a 1v1, though you'd think you had killed them only to die a second or two later but at least you could play with people halfway round the world!

    I'm still working out a timetable for Christmas cos unlike the last 2 years I should have some time to play on the PS3! :woo:

    I got a 25 kill streak in Invasion just now! :woo:

    But I didn't have Tactical Nuke selected in my kill streak options... :sad:

    Highest streak on my friends list now, apart from Bigmo of course - 43! :gasp:

    It's all about the ACR silenced with Scavenger Pro, Cold Blooded Pro + Any Perk 3 (I used steady aim coz I wanted to complete the perk challenges.

    Enemies don't have a clue where you are, and the ACR has a decent range even when silenced. Plus, you'll never run out of ammo.

    Nice. How much will the repairs cost?

    2? They only came out one at a time when I did it. :confused:

    Kill the first one before you climb the ladder, then use 5-8 shots on each one whilst camping, and you should be ok.
