Guides are great...for some of us they are not. For me guides are like spoilers. I just want to alert some of you that before you read the guides think twice. It's way better to pass training and play a map that you don't know. Learn, discover it on your own.

However, I'd suggest to some of you not to read guides and play the game. It becomes artificial and boring. You don't have to follow my advice, but you might if you understand what I mean.

Personally, I like playing the map without knowing it. Because, since the AA is a realism/tactical fps game, not COD or CS, I'd play it as if I was deployed and ordered to go to an unknown town or city, with limited information about it, and assault or defend a point. I have to think, measure, evaluate and navigate on my own.

Being dropped off in an unknown town is more exciting and challenging. More adrenaline. Mystery. Danger. Suspense. Adventure. Plus you get figure out what to do and how to do. Find cover, best position, strategy, tactics, surprises, etc.

However I understand the point of guides and tutorials on how to be a better player and win. Know all the ins and outs of the map, know all the details, holes, advantages and disadvantages, and play the same map over and over.

I prefer to learn the map and all that by myself. And that's how i enjoy it.

Please understand that I posted this to share my view about this to warn new people before they jump in and read guides and go play the game. Which in some way takes away the point of the whole game.

I see the AA game as a virtual world to get away, immerse myself and be in an unknown place and have an adventure and fun. For me it's not a sport or an Olympic game where I have to master it to win.
