the video would look better with a lot more action shots and less views of the map imo the best part was those views of the shrike going through Katabatic
[QUOTE=Chirno;34808753]except with an aimbot i dont do anything but press fire(or use the autofire option) but this bug requires me to actually aim AND time the 2 shots perfectly while it maybe "unfair" its not even remotely close to an aimbot[/QUOTE] Are you seriously trying to justify the usage of unfair exploits?
playing, tcn/jug/pathfinder ign is LatinGeek
Upgraded my tech's sentry and now i can use 2...much better and easier to defend generator...
I still don't understand, do I need to pay the full $30 to get the game when it's released or do I get it with VIP?
Grav Cycles are so underrated in my opinion. My friend and I just set up some plans on how he's gonna cap the flag and I'm gonna bust him out of there with my cycle, so he gets the flag, hops on my cycle and due to the great maneuverability of the grav cycle, we managed to dodge all spinfusors and other attacks, hit a small jump where he then hops off my cycle and caps. Although, that doesn't work too well if the enemy has our flag, but it's nice for escort. Funny thing is, after a few matches with it, everyone on our team was on a grav cycle. :v:

Most the maps are still really flawed. Katabatic is pretty good. Crossfire wouldn't be so bad if the bases were further apart and it wasn't so llamatastic. Bella Omega, I think, was much better in last version. Arx Novena feels like lots of the map is wasted. Dry Dock has to be the worst though. It's such a pain in the ass getting rid of the people spamming your base from the huge cliffs, and having a gigantic hill leading right to your flag pretty much eliminates the need for routes. That tower near your flag does make for good capper mortaring practice though.
Katabatic and Arx Novena are probably my favorites simply because of how decently symmetrical they are. But out of the two I prefer Arx Novena because the entrance to the generator-room isn't 2000 miles away from your base. Crossfire is decent, if a bit small and bloody. Hard to defend. Bella Omega suffers from the problem of giving the enemy good gen-room acess points, basically destroying any hope of defense. Drydock can go fuck itself. It's just a endless wave of Juggernauts sitting on the hill and spamming MIRV's.

katabatic is fucking awesome + the best if u wanna go fast drydock is fun as hell and its also the map that onyxheart originally went fast on bella omega is fun to pay juggernaut or raider and wreck the enemy gen crossfire is kind of boring fuck arx novena
I'm probably the only one who likes all the maps :v: My least favorite though is probably drydock because its so lop-sided and people spamming from the cliffs is annoying.
Just bought my first class with XP. Then got owned several times while playing it. Any tips for playing Technician?
[QUOTE=CdeMonkey;34812244]Just bought my first class with XP. Then got owned several times while playing it. Any tips for playing Technician?[/QUOTE] Don't rely on the turrets, they're there to help you, not the other way around. Defend either generator or flag, don't do both. If you're on gen, put up turrets so they both can hit people coming through the most likely entrance, and stay there to support them. Don't put them right next to the gen or they'll get grenaded. If you're defending flag, try to cover two different paths to or from the flag, so you can hit Pathfinders no matter which side they come from. Always rearm after dropping turrets so you have one in reserve you can drop the instant you lose one of your deployed ones. Beware of Infiltrators when repairing a generator, they like to hide in corners cloaked, use a quick burst of fire to check. Heavies will mess you up indoors, use grenades and turrets and keep your distance. Don't try chasing enemies who have your flag, make sure your defenses are up so when the flag is returned or capped they can't just do it again. Try to repair base structures when possible but don't focus on it to the exclusion of your gen or flag. And get the Thumper ASAP.

[QUOTE=The golden;34812475]Pretty much.

Not a good map. Katabatic is still the best IMO.

Seriously, the entrance even has a ramp so they can ski right on in.
Holy shit the -10% mass upgrade for pathfinder is amazing. Grenades throw you so much farther. I just got a 230 SANIC flag grab, when my previous best on that map was about 160.

High speed point blank airmail suicides are fun.

The lack of decent skiing opportunities in the midfield on Arx really kills it. Among my least favorite maps because of that.
I know this has already been posted, but these fuckers with their disco grenades really piss me off. [img]http://i1.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/newsfeed/000/246/736/524.gif[/img]
You are not invited sandraker.
My favorite map is Drydock, followed by either that bridge one or the ice one. I'm bad with map names for this game.

Will this game be free when it comes out?
isn't it gonna be f2p with a cashshop
It's a bit like tf2, it's free, buy you can get a VIP account. VIP at the moment doesn't seem to be doing anything though, they get the same XP as non-VIP
