oops, Sydney is currently at UTC+11, so that means it starts at... midnight? I never did get the hang of all these timezone calculations.

good couple of days. very happy with my promotions and access to new weapons- the AEK-971 is my favourite at the moment.

a bit of bad luck last night- my 50% boost ran out part way through a game so had to resort to a 25% boost.

i have some very sore fingers after holding the SHIFT and the W keys down for about 10 hours this weekend...

(FYI - you can double tap W to sprint without needing to hold Shift all the time, e.g. Operation Locker sprint for C :) )

I didn't get to play much on Saturday, but got a few hours in on Sunday. All up quite productive with the use of my two 100% boosts and some smaller ones.
764,828 points, 11 ranks (27->38). I now have only a 50 kills difference to get to a 1.00 KD. Over the double XP period by SPM was 2012.8!

I had a similar problem with not realising when Boosts run out. Is there some indicator or marker somewhere I haven't noticed that shows when they are active?

ah- did not know about the double tap. hmmm..might get back on tonight- live it up whilst C. is away hiking.

I went from Rank 2 to Rank 22- quite pleased with that. points starting racking up once I changed to the AEK-971

the only indicator of your boosts, as far as I know, is when you hit [ESC] during a game and see the time remaining.

You know that you can change the settings so SHIFT is a TOGGLE rather than having to HOLD it, right?

um, no...[see my avatar on this forum]
thanks for the heads up.

i played too many Operation Locker games on the weekend, points whoring, and have become a bit bored with the game.
I need to branch out to other maps to up the interest again.
