Whats his name on Game Ranger?

I'm still looking for my first online victory. Laughing

Congrats,
I've tried to get my son into CC and it just didn't work.
Best I ever got out of him was watching/teaching him how to play 2 Battles in the Star Wars Mod by Firefox.

Then he was done,
I got the "That's Lame Dad" response and he's never touched it since.  Crying or Very sad

Not too sure about that.. despite the hours each week I put into Halo.. I suck but my 9 year old has won 2 tournaments and last fall when he was 8, scored a 'Prefection' in MLG room. God if I record a single positive K/D in an entire noght of gameplay.. Im happy!!

Connor played some CC in Dec, he was okay with it.. but as alot of kids are these days, the Multiplayer online wasnt dynamic enough.. remember these kids are used to XBL parties with a ton of bells & whistles. I still recall modems dialing into each othere PCs to play CC3!

Haha, yeh, the appeal is not there for everyone.

He’s used to the star wars “version” of Comand&Conc.., though he soon realized that soldiers rarely stand up and move in a parade manner like they do in star wars..

Though the basic idea of using support vehicles and combined infantry dint have to be explained.

He’s never played H2H in any game so maybe that was a big contributor to the "WOW" for him to..

Hmm, "bells & whistles", whats that, for a CC person that must mean CC5, right??  Laughing


I have played CC for to long.
