    I've never seen anyone killed by one. It'd be cool/horrible if they did though.

    Hell, an A-10 main gun can take out a tank easy.

    It's imbalanced and should be patched out then.

    Nah, just bitching about a particularly bad group of people I played with earlier.

    Who happened to use nothing but M60s. And still lost.

    It was a very long and boring match. This game can be great fun, but when you're up against a team of 4 recons/8 medics who never leave their spawn to attack (don't know how, or don't wanna ruin the K/D), the matches get extremely tedious.

    Until about 20 tickets left, when the recons remember they have mortars. Then around 10 tickets left they actually start attacking. Congratulations, you now know how every Rush match plays out on the 360.
    I feel bad for people that have to play this on the 360..

    Don't feel bad, we are enjoying better balance, helicopters that are actually useful, and much less rage in general. There are rush games like that, but in my experience it happens less than 10% of the time.

    I have died to an Anti-Tank Mine. I don't know how or why, but I did. It was not at an MCOM, it was out in the middle of a road and the tank near me had blown before I died.

    Also, I see there is an achievement for roadkilling with a chopper. Has anyone done this and lived?

    Usually, if you are on foot and die to an AT mine it's because you were near a vehicle that set one off, or you were near a mine that someone shot. Within a certain range, mines can chain off of each other when one explodes, making a nice domino effect of 'splosions.

    Also, I am work, can't play the Dome from here.

    One time I got a roadkill with a helicopter on a tank driver. That was pretty cool.

    I got in the helicopter, right? And KimChi gets in as gunner. And the first thing he says in his annoying little fucking KimChi way (permaban KimChi) is "I hope you don't suck."

    So the first thing I do is nose dive the Hind into an enemy Bradley. But it doesn't explode right away, right? No, it flips upside down and starts rolling back and forth across the top of the Bradley. So for some reason, the driver jumps out and gets rolled over.

    So, the R9 announcement got kinda glossed over at the end of the previous thread, so here are the new update details:
    • Autobalance improved, it shuffles people both during and between rounds now, and does a better job.

    I sure hope the autobalance works :whistle:

    Wait a sec... during the game? Automagically? Does anyone else think that'll be annoying and/or confusing?

    KimChi does have a way with his voice.

    Maybe it is his mic.

    Maybe he does it on purpose.

    It is a mystery.

    It will be nice to have a better auto-balance mode. When your team gets rolled repeatedly it's hard to have fun.

    I wish ATI cards would get a patch for the long load times. The other night I had to wait so long the first 2 points were already taken.

    I think ATI is on the hook for this one, as they need to get their DX10 shaders to load a lot faster.

    And, as has been stated many times before, we need a customizable pre-round timer so bad.

    I believe if you download the Beta 10.4 drivers, this issue is fixed.

    I once flattened a whole squad that was running from A to B on the first Isla points, dropped off some mans, then flew off again. Twas pretty epic.

    And yes Goomba, out of the 28,000 times you've called in a Mortar Strike, you got me that one time in a chopper. GJ.

    Well yeah, but... even if the teams are horribly unbalanced* and one team is getting rolled... why shuffle the team mid-match? Let it play out, then shuffle at the end. The bitching can be pretty epic if all of a sudden you're doing well, perhaps the ace player on your team, and you get shuffled somewhere between points 3 and 4 on a rush map. Same goes if you were playing with a good buddy and now you get separated. I guess I'll hold judgment until I see it in action... but I'm concerned.

    *Unbalanced in terms of 16v16 yet one team is really pounded the other. What I call Dome Syndrome.

    Yeah but I called that one in with the sole purpose of killing a helicopter and it worked.

    First to mortar a helicopter: Goomba

    I too wish the ATI loading issue didn't exist. Ah well. My old Nvidia card that I was using couldn't handle the game very well. Couldn't beat the price of a 5770 either.
    I so wish I could play this more often.
