• Tribes: Ascend v2: I went slow once and it was awful

I bought raider, and I totally hate it I guess I will start to grind exp to get soldier's spinfusor Also i got an extra gold code, PM me if you want it (remember that you can't activate more than 1 code per account)
The problem I have with raider is how sometime when you stick grenades on your enemies when they're in mid-air, the grenades sometime don't even blow up, it blinks a few time then nothing, it happens, without exageration, half the time I stick a grenade on someone who's midair, and it's NOT because of my ping, the most I've ever had was 45, and that's when I had a lagspike, otherwise I'm at a constant 30-40. This has got me killed many, many times.
Oh my, Infiltrator with Stealth Spinfusor and Safety Third is fucking great. Not even the heavy classes stand a chance if I manage to surprise them.

Best code.
it feels like there's been a huge wave of snipers in every game mode today, each team having at least 3
The raider's nade not detonating is really getting on my nerve really fast.. Especially since I'm getting the hang of it and I'm able to place nades on enemies midair quite often now, but 3/4 they just don't blow up, and it ends with me getting killed.

The only reason people hate those classes are because they don't get how to fight against them. People just expect technicians to be cannon fodder and simply come down to try and solo everything. Come in as more than one person and spread out and there's not too much a thumpernician can do. People need to learn to counter shit before they whine about it being OP. And Mirv wielding juggernauts are just silly. Extremely predictable where they will try and shoot.
the devs need update the game site, its pretty much useless. put some info on classes and their weapons/upgrades.

Extremely predictable where they will try and shoot.[/QUOTE] So you're saying we need to be more than one on one against a thumpernician and need to carefully spread to avoid being killed by one, lone, single, support class. Sums it up nicely, technician shouldn't have thumper.
You're going up against a class which has primarily defensive tools. Stationary turrets, motion sensors and spawns fairly close to where he'd die. The people who go to the generator room are usually solo people who are mad because a base turret shot them. Of course more than one person would be preferable. Even at that send in a single half competent Juggernaut or Raider and said Technician will be fucked. And more often than not, they're spamming vdg and vbe so more will be coming. Anyone expecting to be able to go into an enemy base and have an easy time in any game is surely not thinking right.
I consider myself a competent heavy, and technicians half my level still thumper the living fuck out of me. There's only so much a heavy can do against a light class who has a thumper. Indoors. I stay away from using the thumper myself, as I know that it'll be patched soon enough. One/two hitting light classes and just spamming the shit at heavies whilst jetpacking around indoors is a pretty hilarious thing.
How do you start a votekick?
[QUOTE=Yffulf;35134454]You're going up against a class which has primarily defensive tools. Stationary turrets, motion sensors and spawns fairly close to where he'd die.[/QUOTE] Why should said defensive class have access to an offensive weapon, ontop of his defensive arsenal?
[QUOTE=leonthefox;35135409]How do you start a votekick?[/QUOTE] You have to do it through console.
[QUOTE=Gum;35135470]You have to do it through console.[/QUOTE] Whats the console command to start it? just votekick?
/votekick <playername> theres no point they never pass because no one votes
[QUOTE=Yffulf;35134120] People need to learn to counter shit before they whine about it being OP. And Mirv wielding juggernauts are just silly. Extremely predictable where they will try and shoot.[/QUOTE] I know I rage alot about raiders but I know how to counter the arx buster, but in other hand the tech thrumper is 80% a two hits death for anyone trying to fight in the generator room. The splash damage is huge and so the damage and the reaload spead. While a jugger takes alot of time to reaload the mortal launcher and the spinfusor the tech just pop out two shots with the thrumper. I know is beta and they might change the weapon in the future but right now the damn thing is op in every way.
[QUOTE=leonthefox;35135569]Whats the console command to start it? just votekick?[/QUOTE] Don't bother doing it. Ascend has one of those retarded vote systems in which it needs 90%+ in favor for the vote to pass. I've been playing the Beta for months and I've only ever seen 1 vote pass.

the perk that makes you eject when you crash a vehicle is amazing. I've crashed into the ground trying to hit a flag carrier right before they cap a few times, and launched out of my ship and hit them with the thumper before they could score.
I think found out why my game runs so slow. The wiki says the game needs an ATI Radeon 3870+ graphics card and my computer has an ATI Radeon 3400. Also my comp has the bare minimum of 3GB of ram to play. I'm not really a hardware expert, anyone have a suggestion as to what I should do? Should I buy more RAM/a new GPU?
I think the game is slow on my computer and I got a 5970.
