[QUOTE=Bragdras;32359427]Or you can, you know, go sniper and prevent robo-nests, kill medic to allow your team easier push and uptime, and carry the beacon your damn self if you see no one taking it. Beside, if you can't prevent nests as a BOMBERcon, then you should consider switching to something else, unless you're one of those cretins who lob all 3 bombs in a row to destroy a turret and a medical station while the robotics is not even there, then you should downright uninstall the game.[/QUOTE] Preventing nests is one thing. Preventing 3 nests at once while all your teammates hump the front end of an inferno cannon is another.

Yeah right.
[QUOTE=Snipehamster;32359384]I typically top bot damage and kills even when my team gets stomped, and sniping is bloody frustrating on enclosed maps/with a bad team. I go sniper for PvE (and would do for AvA, if I took the time to join an agency and play competitively), but bomber seems to do just fine in merc.[/QUOTE] Damage don't win games and 5..6..7..repeat is not a proper play style. [editline]19th September 2011[/editline] [QUOTE=DeandreT;32360711]Sniper preventing robo nests? Yeah right.[/QUOTE] Actually Snipers can [I]prevent[/I] nests, if they're good. They just can't destroy them if they're already up.
[QUOTE=DeandreT;32360711]Sniper preventing robo nests? Yeah right.[/QUOTE] [i] Oh god I can't shoot a stationary object that can't be out-repaired by the robotic's focused repair arm because my sniper outdamages everything in the game [/i] Even if the nest is already up, your sniper rifle's damage (any of them) can take down any station / turret from the robotics, they can't outheal the damage output. Yeah, I AM right. You don't have to be in the line of fire of the turret to take it down, just saying.
You two need to shut up, people play how they want, I think bombercon is pretty useful since most of the games I get are full of Snipercons who don't do shit.
Change of subject! :v Post pics of your character(s) - are you a slick, stealthy techno-agent or a rainbow-soaked, hologram-spewing pimp? Mine are pretty bland, but I've settled on a simple look that suits pretty much every class.

Vintage AvA Helmets and Holo-Suits ftw :colbert:

[QUOTE=krail9;32406092]that cashshop...[/QUOTE] Nope. All my gear was bought with credits/tokens, or dropped. I do use boosters, but that's it.
If we bought GA back when you could buy it on steam, are you considered an elite agent?
yup
[QUOTE=LordCrypto;32410726]If we bought GA back when you could buy it on steam, are you considered an elite agent?[/QUOTE] Doesn't matter when or where you bought it actually.
How "pay to win" is this game? I'm thinking of trying it.
[QUOTE=Meller Yeller;32412966]How "pay to win" is this game? I'm thinking of trying it.[/QUOTE] It's not. Everything you buy for real money either gets you the same stuff but twice as fast or is just flair. That's provided you bought so called Elite Agent, which is a small one-time fee.
On a purely free account you are pretty limited but if you make the one time purchase you are just as even as everyone else. Then it becomes time investment.
[QUOTE=Snipehamster;32408728]Nope. All my gear was bought with credits/tokens, or dropped. I do use boosters, but that's it.[/QUOTE] Oh, carry on then. I didn't know you could get those helmets other than with agenda points (except the 4 star mastery of course).
New zone is interesting.
Hey, im the leader of a PvP and AvA focused Agency, we have a ventrillo. We are looking for some new members that want to do PvP and AvA. Also i have a boatload of credits - would anyone be interested in buying them? Doing a raid. [MEDIA]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHQ68B5kikc&feature=channel_video_title[/media]
I decided to try this but it just crashes goddamn constantly at random parts and right now I can't get to the Sonoran desert without it crashing at the loading screen. So far the optimization with this game seems horrible. You'd think after being out this long, it wouldn't be this crappy.

But it does crash randomly and a lot. It pisses me off.

It pisses me off.[/QUOTE] PvE is well optimized, my mid-end rig can run it on max with DX10. PvP on the other hand (as in more than 4 players) is unoptimized piece of shit, every time I'm about to do some AvA I used to lower graphics to lowest just because it'll stutter otherwise.

[editline]27th September 2011[/editline] and when I say like Minecraft, I mean it. 64x64 textures, no texture filtering, low poly models.

[QUOTE=Kaelazun;32503962]Mind sharing it?[/QUOTE] I'm sorry, I've deleted GA when I stopped playing and with it the custom config. I remember there was a guide on the forums about graphic settings, that's where I learned about it.

Got my first level 50 today, and a crescent jetpack! :dance:
