Why do people even bitch about the plasma rifle any more? I mean it had its hibox fixed and all, and for a raider, its not even the best gun they can use to suit their role. A grenade launcher or arx buster is a much better choice if you're actually going to play the raider how its MEANT to be played. As for the NJ4-B SMG, its not like its not really an upgrade, more a sidegrade.
[QUOTE=Teh Zip File;35818224]I just realized that you can drive the beowulf onto the flag. Tank on flag! I know it'd be pretty easy to kill you, but it'd be harder to move around than a HoF. I should try that on Temple Ruins or Sunstar. [editline]4th May 2012[/editline] Nevermind. Saw someone else try it. Doesn't block the cap at all :v:[/QUOTE] I know you've discovered this but they detonate if you idle on the flag point :v: [editline]4th May 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=Skyward;35820716]Why do people even bitch about the plasma rifle any more?

[QUOTE=ShnitzelKiller;35818666]I just realized this game is pay to win and my progression is pretty much pointless. Now every time some guy fires some crazy rebounding/splitting projectile at me, I realize he's probably some kid who convinced his parents to spend a few bucks on microtransactions. I guess I could take pride in NOT being a VIP member so that XP actually means something.[/QUOTE] Actualy you just realized that you bad at this game.
So I finally topped the scoreboards in a match. ...As a Jiggurnaut doing the Raider's job.

If you play raider the whiteout grenades are fucking fantabulous. Mines if DMB. That's all I know really :v: [editline]4th May 2012[/editline] Anyone else can't connect?

[QUOTE=Aedus;35822022]I thought heavies can't get in Shrikes?[/QUOTE] they cant? i dont think ive ever got enough creds to afford one. and the super heavy perk lets you squish or ram enemies if you got the SANICs for it, right?

No, tech is the most fun class... oh wait...
[QUOTE=jiggu;35822238]Jiggurnaut best class.[/QUOTE] you finally see the truth
[QUOTE=Espio;35819853]You must have been buying other stuff too though right? I mean I've spent about 70k just from rank 17-19 and although I have VIP it's still just over half of 100k[/QUOTE] Perks, armor upgrades and different grenades
Being on a booster with VIP is still crap, I still feel like I'm being drip fed, like, I need to play 50 matches at 2k a time in order to buy a weapon. And I barely average 2k, doing the best teamwork and so forth.

I'm also getting loads of killstreaks though
I'm literary getting tribes.exe stopped working error every 20 minutes...and i'm still not sure if it has to do something with my computer or the software (other games are fine)
That feel when you carefully shoots a fusion mortar over a massive distance and perfectly hit the enemy flagcarrier as he's about to cap our flag. [editline]4th May 2012[/editline] Oh and him spamming shazbot afterwards.

So, when are we training and stuff?
I think we said Saturday
That was a random date, we'd need to find some way or co-ordinating everyone, I'd use the FPT group but they won't give me admin on it, so should I just set up a new group?
Yes, do it.
