    Man oh man oh Man. Had a few AWESOME matches with Unearthly Stew. I was decimating as my INF, with my best run being 14 kills, and 6 assists. Say what you want about the Jackal, but all I need is my Rhino SMG, and I'm golden. Don't even need the cloak pack.

    I was also attempting more melee kills, since they just feel so good. Also, silly as how the INF likes to PAUNCH people to death.

    More I play this game, the more I love it.

    I'm ready for more skin packs now.

    I... had a lot of really terrible moments where I screwed up my nitros and where I got shot a lot because I'm learning good capping routes. I am getting really annoyed at teammates who just very slowly walk up and take the flag as I come screaming past.

    Why is there no friendly fire? D:<

    Well I just had two very dull matches on two different servers. Might be an influx of new players or something, or just bad luck.

    this is the worst

    I'll have an approach all lined up and I'm flying toward the flag, and some dude drops from the sky, picks it up and just like, walks away or something

    The match I was JUST in... ARGH. Okay, I know that I'm not even very good at this game, like, at all—I've only been playing for just a few days—but in that time I've learned that if you even so much as look at the flag when you're not doing a bare minimum of 150 km/h then you deserve the worst kind of stabbing. This time there were about five... FIVE... people on my team who thought they were awesome and would just buzz around the flag and grab it every time it showed up. One guy, named Topple, would get it and then meander aimlessly into the enemy base.

    I lost count of the number of grabs I missed because of that.

    If those geese would try running something midfield, or if even one of them went HoF for our team we could have won. Auuuuuugggggh.

    ahahah this guy

    so I'm playing TDM on that map with the kind of spanish looking white castle, and I'm messing around with a juggernaut so I camp out in that little basement room with the four pillars. And this one pathfinder keeps coming in and getting killed. Like, I get him with a mortar, I get him with the spinfusor, I get him with a grenade. I'm on a killing spree, but it's not really a spree it's just me murdering this one guy over and over again. Finally he comes back

    as a juggernaut

    and I blue plate him

    felt kind of bad about it

    then he came back with a buddy and they got me, but it was pretty entertaining

    If you are going fast and close to picking up the flag (say 5 seconds away), make sure you VFF (I have the flag). Most people know what it means and will clear the stand for you instead of llama grabbing. Oh, and make sure *not* to VFF from too far away, or call for the flag but not get there in time for an egrab.

    Jackal? Yea, it's a fun weapon. It could probably use another nerf right now. The air explosion damage is fine (it does like 150), but there should be a delay before you can blow them up. One of my favorite things is to cloak around the flag and fire+detonate right as someone is picking it up. There really isn't anything they can do to prevent it if my timing is on.

    Also, standing on the flag, cloaked, with super heavy.

    Also, also, cloak around the flag, and use sonic punch to knock the flag out of the carriers hands right after they pick it up (pretty hard to time).

    ... Yup, I'm an ass.

    There's a weakness there with the jackal, though, since you can't fire until all three shots are out. Also, if the firing gets screwed up and you are switched to semi-auto mode.

    VSAF near the start of your run as a capper, VFF when you are like 5 seconds out. Weep as your team llamas anyway. Run escort for the llama by skiing in front of him looking backwards at him the whole time. Judge him with your stare.

    Most llamas don't realize their llamaing otherwise they wouldn't do it.

    Your laments fall on deaf ears!

    I have a new OP ready for the new thread. Can I go ahead and make it now? Whats the protocol here?

    I had some games this morning with competent cappers. It was awesome. I was all heading in towards the flag when someone VFFs and I see a dude screeeaaaaming up to me. I hit the jets at the last moment, went sailing over the flag, let him snag it, and then I run interference and take out the guys who tried chasing him.

    I went 5-0 several times with that team. So cool.

    I've been doing really well with spinfusors lately. (Mainly as soldier) I've picked off a few flag carriers from tremendous distances but I think my favorite was a double kill/double blue plate the other night.

  • LalaboxLalabox You know what would speed this along? Registered User regular
    Half the reason that people go to grab the flag whenver they can is the get the experience. It may not be much, but if you can grab the flag a couple of times, and maybe even have a slight shot at capturing it, people think that it's definately more worthwhile to them experience-wise, than being on the winning team.

  • A Flock of WalrusA Flock of Walrus Registered User regular
    I'm going to go ahead and make a new thread I guess.
