America's Army players: Report In!

Who else plays America's Army? I can't be the only one.

You can download it for free if you're interested: http://www.americasarmy.com

It's a FPS developed by the United States Army. It's pretty kick ass. I enjoy it heartily. Also, 1.9 patch just came out and now they have combat medics!

It's a great game that is very realistic.

However, my experience with America's Army went from good to a nightmare.

When it first came out, it was really fun to play. I used to play for several hours per day back then. I took some time off from it and then I started playing again. I didn't know any of the new maps and I didn't remember some of the older maps. I had players telling me to leave, trying to vote to kick me from the game, etc. Evidently I was ruining their "gaming experience". I decided that they were all jerks and uninstalled the game. And there is a very big and nasty anti-american sentiment from the Europeans that play, which bothered me.

how does this game compare to cs? (to those that have played both).

I definitely prefer CS over AA, but mainly because my comp can't run AA very well, and I've got years of experience playing CS...

AA would be good apart from all the official servers being on the other side of the world, its very real and a bit frustrating, but hey
whatever floats your boat.

I prefer enemy territory which is also free,

I liked AA until one day the new version would hang when trying to load the server lists.

post to the troubleshooter board didn't help.

Good think the game was free, or I'd be ticked.

I downloaded the game, but it always freezes during grenade training. How do I play online without having to complete training first?

Reporting in. I don't play often (I have WAY too many games to play to play any of them often), but I do play sometimes. I've completed all the training and whatnot... my handle in game is MooseMan3000, if you ever see me around. 21 honor, because I don't play enough to go higher.

As far as I know, you don't. The idea is that you complete "basic" before you can play with other people.

I only had this problem because of the shitty network at my school. When I play at home, my connection is fine on any of the official servers.

It doesn't. Not really, anyway. You can compare it more to DoD than CS, but even that's stretching it a little bit. But basically, it's more realistic, better graphically, and much harder than CS. In CS, you can rush at the other team with a MAC10 and get a few kills. In AA, you will get machine gunned down before you even see the other team. That is, unless you're playing with noobs. (like me)


Overall, I enjoy the game. Completing the extra training missions to allow you to play the sniper, medic, airborne, and special forces classes is really a nice touch.

Damn, that's what I was afraid of... I don't know why it freezes...

try updating your video drivers, or reverting back to an older build. The grenade course is a local map and not something on the servers.

Anyone still play AA? I am thinking of trying it out until DoD:S comes out.

I just installed it again after several months not playing. They have added 8 or so new maps since I last played, and most of them are excellent. Just make sure when you play to complete the Special Forces training... it's difficult, but playing a Special Forces class makes it worth it.

Yes to that. Plus all the bitching and whining from the AA fanboys when you screw up in the game.
