The history of the Socom titles lies within the connection and whose been playing the most. The moment I started playing Socom 1 was like a dream in itself. I never felt so hungry to play video games, then again I was about 12 and became better than average. Placing high in the top 20’s with a team or doubles. You may be wondering who was this guy that placed so high on Gamebattles. Fact is because I wasn’t into cheating. Which made the game more exciting except the fact some people did cheat to win games.
Once Socom II U.S. Navy seals dropped that’s when it hit me. I was ready to play for ages and win as many games as possible to raise my K/D ratio. Once Gamebattles finally breached the 2nd title of the series, I began feeling distraught and confused as to why people bother glitching and ruining your K/D for simply cheating. I give credit to all the legit players including myself and Alwayscrispy the Founder. Hence it is why I still love shooters for online games of the PlayStation consoles. Socom had its legendary maps and its not-so legendary maps.. Which it didn’t make a difference if you were better, some maps are were one sided, meaning either seals or terrorist of certain maps had it’s key camping with the hostages so infamous.
Try playing desert glory without someone hiding in the cell with a auto shotgun. You couldn’t but it was just as good to hide on top of buildings with a sniper and pmn mines. I never raised a red flag because I felt as if the M16 deserved more credit for 1 on 1 battles. Sure enough the lag played its part in all of this, due to the servers having alot of bad days from a overload of players playing during peak hours. Sadly, I played most games and one due to pub allstars or myself being a pub machine. Not here to say this game is bad, but to slap with a rating of a B-. If there was slightly less lag I would still be playing it if the servers were still up.
Rumor has it there a way to play it with your PC. Which I have tried myself, with my computer taking a sh*t and my laptop being too slow is rather uneasy. Jump right into Socom II and begin the absolute domination with your clan by your side. Or challenge your selve in singles I’d still be saying. Bye bye Socom series. We will miss you. If anyone out there can rebuild socom II it is zipper or fanbase. Lets dig into the breathe of Game battles 8v8 and 2v2. I’d surely be still playing if it was online, and paying for a high speed connection of 300 mb download.
8v8’s are simply the best way a team can prove themselves within a ranking to be the best. Top clans like LumiNoSity and Adrenaline going head to head will rock your socks off, but playing with your clan that refuses to love no matter what the cost, strategically ambushing the other clan throughout each round is everyone’s dream. I remember the days your team telling you to camp if your the last person alive. Most of the time I would accomplish a draw, but the last 30 seconds is when it gets very nerve racking.
So what any top team will tell you is to slow your strafe or shut down with a tie. I’d never miss on purpose and would win one on ones most desolately. 2v2’s are my favorite because there a lot less lag. Simply put, I never played a real 2v2 with good players until I found my partner and leader of my clan. CRiME> was his socom handle, and mine was -V a P o R. but when I discovered his individual skill. I than knew game battles was where it all began. Nobody to this day would play the Socom II title the way it should have been played, and that is strategically.
All out gunfights and absolute domination with this way of playing every game most would show in Pub matches. But playing any clan they will do this? Thus it is so, but out smarting and predicting your opponent is almost always comes out on top. But don’t be so sure you can out gun fight with RAW skill. You need to first think ok, this is game battles, I do need to play my absolute best while only playing good or you may drop in rank. Well there you have it, a complete rundown of what I feel is your feed for true titles, only for the strong.
