Got my first team kill with a perfect orbital I think it killed 8 of the heavies who were defending the stand and the gen entrance. [img]http://cloud.steampowered.com/ugc/578956687711465732/7D722742BB59A4396974D6A3474AEDE9AB66FBA9/[/img]
[QUOTE=The golden;36060112]You can? Because I can't. The thing about the secondaries is that they are good for picking off flying targets that are harassing you, fleeing targets, or finishing off wounded targets. Why would you want to have two guns equipped that both fulfill the same role?[/QUOTE] And you just explain why I dont change the nova colt. Hitscan finishing off is pretty sweet.
Got one of my friends to start playing this game with a referral code, and joined a match they were in. It was full of a bunch of new players all below rank 5. I had fun raping the enemy team :v:
game is done, my team did a ridiculous amount of bullshit by not knowing how to hold onto the flag during standoff.
[QUOTE=Teh Zip File;36059750]I can see a million reasons why you'd use the plasma cannon over the auto shotty/colt though. [editline]22nd May 2012[/editline] [I]Two primaries![/I][/QUOTE] Except two primaries are most likely never a good idea since they fill the same role, having one primary and a finisher is usually the best combination.
I'm finding out that the playing as Sentinel is heavily reliant on having a good ping. The internet where I'm at can be really inconsistent and once the ping starts to rise it gets a lot harder to hit things. The Nova Colt is affected especially because then there is a delay between when you shoot and where the projectile actually fires.
Played for a bit, saw [I]one[/I] guy using the gladiator and plasma cannon. And he had lower score than all the other brutes. :v:
I'm rolling plasma cannon and Heavy 'fusor right now, It's working out rather well, The plasma cannon is good for up close and personal due to smaller splash radius.
Im thinking of getting back into tribes Did they ever nerf my beloved Thumper?
This is the first time I've played after and update and not been hugely raped by people with new weapons. This is enjoyable.
[QUOTE=Birdman101;36063569]Im thinking of getting back into tribes Did they ever nerf my beloved Thumper?[/QUOTE] Nope.
I wish I wasn't too busy to get a few rounds in on the new update. I'm definitely going to make use of those hours I should be sleeping in tonight. Anyway, just wanted to ask, are there any busy Tribes 2 or Vengeance servers in Australia? I want to give them a shot, but I don't want to download the game and find it dead.
[QUOTE=Teh Zip File;36063708]Nope.[/QUOTE] excellent. Now, to fix my right click cutting out all the time, and I shall once again be one with the shaz.
[QUOTE=Birdman101;36063569]Im thinking of getting back into tribes Did they ever nerf my beloved Thumper?[/QUOTE] I'm rather sure I've read 3% damage reduction on the technician's Thumper in a patch some time ago Before the infiltrator updates I'm sure.
It still one shots lights thats all I know
I don't know why I made this. [IMG]http://puu.sh/wjr2[/IMG]

I wish the website was online so I can join and play this.

I have a question, should I get the motion detectors for my tech or should I keep farming until I can afford the thumper? [editline]oihjshdhshrjrhsrs[/editline] My prediction of when a "page king" is made appears to be correct.
[QUOTE=DrasarSalman;36066934]I have a question, should I get the motion detectors for my tech or should I keep farming until I can afford the thumper?[/QUOTE] Motion mines are great for spotting targets indoors, but without the thumper there isn't a lot you can do to engage those targets.
[QUOTE=The golden;36066801][img_thumb]http://filesmelt.com/dl/2012-05-19_000012.jpg[/img_thumb] No.[/QUOTE] Coming soon in Tech update.
I've seen people place turrets right in front of entrances with a well-hidden mine. It seems to be effective, but if the turret gets destroyed there isn't much you could do.

[QUOTE=Don Knotts;36067628]Roller Skates instead of ski jets[/QUOTE] I love you. Marry me.
[QUOTE=Don Knotts;36067628]Roller Skates instead of ski jets[/QUOTE] submit idea MAKE MILLIONS
Anyone think the brute weapons should be swapped around? Perhaps reduce the damage on the gladiator to make it better suit a secondary?
It would be awesome otherwise, but spinny+gladiator combo might be overkill. With Quick draw, you could do over 2k burst in a second.
That's what I was wondering about, the gladiator definitely not as good as the HBS as a primary but it would be overpowered as a secondary :/
