If you insist on going recon be a bomber they're mildly more useful than any other until you get shatterbomb.
[QUOTE=K0ppel;29417339]If you insist on going recon be a bomber they're mildly more useful than any other until you get shatterbomb.[/QUOTE] [I]Mildly[/I] more useful. Destroyer Assault would do the same job much more efficient.
Destroyer assault is the best damage dealer, team distrupter and nest killers, even shattercons can't keep up with the chaos they can cause. Destroyer > Shattercon > Bombercon >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Meleecon/ snipercon. The only real downside is that destroyers have lower survival chances than recons just because it's harder for them to escape a bad situation and once cornered they're really limited on options.
Exactly, especially when he has [cccccc] Power Stim (no, I won´t stop bragging about it).
Too bad I can't use my parents' credit cards with anything from the net. HNNNNNNNNG Sucks being young. I can't figure out how to use the minigun's alt fire.

Just turn off all global chats, I know I did.
It's Barrens chat 2.0.
Wait, did this game go free? Or is it still pay to play?
[QUOTE=DerpHurr;29423231]Wait, did this game go free? Or is it still pay to play?[/QUOTE] Unfortunately F2P.
[QUOTE=Jack Trades;29423286]Unfortunately F2P.[/QUOTE] Woo :buddy: [editline]25th April 2011[/editline] Wait, are Free-players aloud to participate in war-zones and all other features? (I know elites get more advantages or something)
[QUOTE=Agenda;29422516]It's Barrens chat 2.0.[/QUOTE] Wow that's so harsh Poor barrens chat.
After everyone telling me not to go Recon, why? Anyway, I think I'm gonna roll with Assault. Is there any tips for that class? And can I have multiple characters so I can try other classes?
[QUOTE=Jack Trades;29423286]Unfortunately F2P.[/QUOTE] whats wrong with F2P? from what they say, items you can buy in the store that effect the game can also be found by doing missions. i wouldnt be surprised at all if they did premium cosmetics in the pay shop though...
[QUOTE=legolover122;29428700]whats wrong with F2P?[/QUOTE] Everything. It completely fucks up lower brackets since all "free agent" get in there with their fucking meleecons/poison medics and derp around without doing anything useful. At least they're isolated in pre-30 bracket for now but as soon as many of them will start leveling up above 30+, the shit will go down. Especially since Hi-Rez buffed all the most useless and retarded things in the game. [editline]25th April 2011[/editline] Global Agenda has been MY game ever since the release. I used to know all the little things. I was successfully leading Strike Forces for one of the top 10 EU agencies. Now I don't even understand the flow of a match. Pre-1.4 it was all about relationships between Assault/Medic pairs and Robotics nests, with occasional support of tech and Recons. Right now a single poison medic can negate all the healing from hardworking Healer, Meleecons are doing as much damage as good Snipercons and Run'n'Gun Assaults are completely butchered.
Hey, I am playing a healer medic and I am a free agent :colbert:

Yes, it's kind of annoying right now because there's a bunch of new players, but without new players, the game will die. Give it a month or two and those new players won't be new anymore, and might be decent! Or pretty good if they get all the way up to 30 with the halved rates.

I'm still annoyed at how they rebalanced the game towards less teamwork and more "derp".

Jack Trades is an angry person who is very protective of his video game.

(I know elites get more advantages or something)[/QUOTE] Yeah, they're allowed. You don't get loot. You'll never get equipment. Unless someone gives them to you. Or you could work REALLY hard, and try to get them from NPCs. It goes something like, a month for a piece of equipment. I don't even know if you can recieve mail, which is basically the trade system. Should I use the personal turret, autocannon, or rocket turret? The personal turret can fire at a large radius, though the damage gap with the other turrets is pretty large, and it's not that durable.

Basically I don't like GA going F2P because: 1. It fucks up the community since any griefer-nolifer can register as many accounts as possible and there are few taking the game seriously. (post-30 bracket fixes that for higher level characters). 2. Recons are well known for being the worst players in the game. It's also the most popular class. F2P means that there will be even more bad Recons. Again, it's partially fixed with post-30 brackets.
Honestly I am about to play recon because I can't win as any other class. When I am assault I die alone on points and never get heals, I spam enemy robotic nests with explosives and don't destroy anything. When I am medic no one I heal seems to have any situational awareness or aim at all. I could try robotics, or I could go recon, who doesn't have to rely on teammates at all. Would be a nice change of pace from having to rely on retards.
[QUOTE=Raidyr;29445671]I could go recon, who doesn't have to rely on teammates at all. Would be a nice change of pace from having to rely on retards.[/QUOTE] I won't say that you playing Recon will make your teams win less, because there will be 3 Recons in that team either way, no matter if one of them is you or not. Just going to say that if you [I]are[/I] going to play Recon, play it properly. 1. Don't go ReRe (RetardRecon - Meleecon) 2. Don't go Bombercon, bombs are super easily dodged and a decent robo will easily outrepair them. Also it will make you totally useless while you wait for your cooldown. 3. If you're using Ballista, prioritize mechanical targets over other players. There's nothing worse than 2 Recons failing at sniping each other and doing fuck all for the team. 4. Get Scorpia as soon as you can and target Medics and Assaults with it, Scorpia is the most annoying thing for a Medic, it will make them unable to heal themselves or their Assaults properly, they both will die really quickly. I've got some more tips but they're for lvl 30+ only, remember Objective Points > Damage/Kills

Leveling is painfully slow though, was fine until I finished the desert quests. Now I get 500 XP per match and need 8000 to level up.
