Battlefield 1942 Propaganda Posters are very handy for the times when you need to call someone a smacktard.

Is it possible to retire the word "smacktard" already? It sounds like something violent trekkies would say to their obese pals.

I suggest we replace it with the term 'fucktard,' which is far more flexible and has greater staying power.

These are brilliant, in a wierd PvP-meets-AYBABTU sort of way.

Honestly, I've never heard/read the word "smacktrad" before. I think we just need to use "felchwit" from now on.

I can grok what all these slogans mean without playing the game...except one. What game faux pas does "TKing" refer to?

this one is just funny to say out loud.

TeamKilling, Sir Matt. Friendly fire, so to speak.

Wow. I had no idea that they talked such smack back in '42.

fucktard is indeed far more flexible.

And what's 'plane camping'? Sounds more like Everquest than Battlefield 1942. Oh, wait, different kind of planes, I guess...

Peek-a-boo, You're screwed!. Great stuff.

Plane camping is the pinnacle of smacktardiness. The planes in the game respawn periodically and it's not uncommon to see players running around on the airstrip waiting. Not very much fun in 8 on 8 game when 4 of your "teammates" are doing nothing.

And of course when the plane does spawn, it's a mad dash to be the first one in, resulting in team killing and probably blowing up the plane they just spent all that time waiting for.

Yay, COMIC SANS! I'm surprised he didn't do them all in Algerian.

It's pretty easy these days to find some free retro-ish fonts. But I suppose there isn't a lot of overlap between the gamers and the font collectors.

I tend more toward the font collecting myself (me likey the big screen for games and have the Noah's Ark of game consoles in my living room), but I will say that a friend of mine is hardcore into Battlefield 1942 and from playing it at his place, it is much more interesting than your typical UT/Q3 fragfest. I hope EA taps Aspyr to port it to the Mac like they did with Medal of Honor.
