Naw, we use sights only.. I mean if you're surprised then you do what you gotta do. But it's also a tactical realism server. We play in TCC ladder with OW mod on pretty strict realism settings/rules. Our S&D is a bit more relaxed but no hip firing/run n gun/hopping all the typical crap.

There has been a significant drop in players I noticed on most gaming servers on the PC lately, actually for quite some time, due to the MASSIVE cheating/aimbotters on COD servers. The same thing happened back then with UT2004 - so a lot of people (good and regular players) have stopped playing. It's extremely hard to find decent servers nowadays unless you get into a well run private server with regular GOOD players properly admined, or clans, again with the same specs.

Our server is pretty much on lockdown during peak times; if you're on when the clan is it's really well admined. There are about 6 others in our league that are as well; so we all basically play among eachothers servers and I truly don't venture beyond that because of everything you describe above.

Looks like I won't be playing, run and gunning I can understand, but I fail to see how jumping is unrealistic. I get called a bunny hopper a lot. But I don't care what anyone says if someone was shooting at me I'd sure as hell would be jumping and running for cover.

Forget about what people call you - you will be called everything from a bunny hopper, runner, even call you out for using the same weapons let alone whining about guns on a guns server ;-) As long as you're not cheating you shouldn't be concerned - as to bunny hopping in COD lol I'd love to see a video of that ! :D

Jumping causes A LOT of issues wit4 latency in FPS games. Forget trying to do realism or anything.. jumping in COD$ can basically make you invisiable as due to latency you will never be where the person is aiming even if they are responding fast enough. Youtube some tests of it; basically standing still and jumping makes you nearly immune to fire. And so it is banned from most serious playfields in most fps.

I've been playing more L4D and Battlefield Heroes Beta recently, but I do love a good game of COD4.

However I didn't really like COD5 much, it's mediocre at best IMO.

Yeah I agree with COD5, besides we all know we're waiting patiently for COD4:MW2
