      Re: My College Essay on Battlefield 2

      Hello, I am the essay. Thanks for all the comments. You guys are right about having a thesis and summing it up in the conclusion, I should've caught that. This is the standard level 1000 english class at my college. The paragraph format is the teacher's format: intro(attention grabber), thesis, background info, body, conclusion, 2-3 page limit. Also the advice to reference better is good, thanks. I also posted this on planet battlefield and no one liked it because I cited this site instead of theirs at the bottom. Thanks for reading and commenting, please keep telling me what you think.

        Umm Jalalabad is a city in Pakistan. Don't expect an A for lack of research

              Drilling is impossible in BF2. I did this for Counterstrike and it worked, because the gun patterns were consistent - just like your personal weapon, you get to know it after awhile.

              In BF2, all practice goes out the window in a real game, all you do is roll the dice.

                guided laser does not, the tank shots does not, prone sniper do not... a lot of stuff does not go out the window...

                  I bet you are a hit with the women also from looking at the time you spent playing BF2. Over 1500 hours huh.
                  Don't really know which soft-spot you're trying to hit bud.

                  Yes, I play video games. Yes, I frequent the TBF2 forums...I don't have a lot of posts. Im not the one that just posted my essay about a video game for a college...So what part of my own advice do I need to follow?

                  I work 3 jobs and go to school. So if Im not working, schoolin', or hittin' the trails in my Jeep...I play BF2. And when you're playing BF2, flying around in the Cobra, thinkin' about how you just pwnt someone in a tank; Im out there doin' it for real. Minus the tank pwnage.

                          For this semester alone...

                          My term paper was a minimum of 40 pages long. The professor encouraged us to do far more than that, as it was a requirement for us to write as if we were writing a true fiction or non-fiction novel. 40 pages alone wasn't enough for me. Using size 12 Times New Roman font, I had printed 61 pages, not including my cover sheet, table of contents, author's notes, final thoughts...etc...

                          Each of the 12 short-stories we were required to write was a minimum of 8 pages long.

                          Each of the 14 in class creative-writing essays we were required to write was a minimum of 3 pages long.

                          Each Test Essay (Tests numbered in the dozens. Essay questions numbered in the dozens per test. Each test took a minimum of 3 hours.) was a minimum of 10 paragraphs long.

                          Each short answer question (A countless ammount) was a minimum of 4 paragraphs long.

                          Either I have a professor that is exceptionally hard on his students, or redeyez meant to say that he was doing an English as a Second Language or Grade 12 English Essay.

                            Hi everyone, thanks for reading and posting comments. To the previous poster: what class are you taking? I have to admit your class makes mine look like preschool. But I bet you'll improve at writing more, since all the students have to write so much.

                            Also to the poster who talks about drills, I believe they help. Of course a newbie without the knowledge or ability to go smoothly to his knees or prone when receiving fire when liable to could benefit from a drill, no?

                            And even the experienced player who looks for something in his game that has room for improvement can find something, can't he? For example if you'd like to get more accurate with a sniper rifle, you can practice tracking the movements of teammates, working on your crosshair placement. If you pop up and an enemy sniper pegs you, you could practice (in a safe area) popping up and pegging a mark on the wall. If you keep getting killed 2 seconds after you respawn you can practice whipping your view around to scan ultra quick. If grenades are killing you more than you'd like, you can practice whipping yourself around and sprinting.

                            Basically if you don't do everything correctly 100% of the time, couldn't you find something to drill at and repeat with far greater frequency, as a simulation of the real thing in a safe area, than the real thing? Also the more you make drills work, the more the downtime you save from not dying as a result of the drills exceeds the amount of time you spend drilling.

                              Got any more snippets of wisdom for us all?



                              Dairuka: Quality > Quantity.

                              Not saying anything about you, just that you can't guage skill on quantity most of the time. Unless you were counting how many monkeys at a typewriter could... ah, never mind.

                                Currently I'm finishing up my Bachelor of Arts (Major for me) at Simon Fraser University. I spent the last year and a half dealing with a truck load of entry 100-level English courses.

                                The class that I'm talking about is this semester's course. English 371, also called "Writing: Theory and Practice". I'm also taking a 400-level English course to meet my B.A. requirements, but thats not as difficult by far.

                                It's essentially the final class before I can lose the undergraduate status (And get my B.A.) that looms over my head forever. Once it's gone, I can work towards an M.A. (I could've gotten rid of it last year, but I had to extend my 'first year' by missing two courses due to work related issues. Luckily my counsellor struck me a deal so I didn't have to miss my second year.)

                                This is by far the hardest class I've ever taken; but considering the four graduates 100-level courses I'll be forced to take next semester... Well, this is essentially a cakewalk in comparison... I'm dreading September, because I know it'll be hell for me from then on.

                                After I get my M.A. I'll probably start writing, while taking a side-course for a M.A. in Education for English as well. At least this way if writing doesn't work out, I can fall back on a nice cushy teaching job.

                                Quality and Quantity are both requirements to get a decent grade. The people who do the minimum requirements are the ones who barely etch out a 3.0 Grade Point Average.
