    Foruming on ipad is mostly fine.

    I wish it would cache tabs though. And the spell check needs a little more training. And arrow keys would be nice.

    Still, it's a nice form factor for foruming in bed.

    :winky:

    Is there a way to be invisible on the x-box like you can do with aim and such? Because you can use that Mori.

    It's okay. He's more tolerable than those racist fuckwits who join every once in a while. He's just a kid who does kid-like things and has a really high pitched voice.

    I had a lot of fun playing with you today though. Hopefully we will get more of those. I got my blue visor so I look like a champ now.

    I can, but I wish to remain visible to everyone else.

    Maybe there's a way to block just one player without actually removing them.

    Awesome. Yeah, gaming today was fun, even with the kid shouting about banshee-using gays.

    Actually Sarksus is right, he is pretty hilarious. His tirade about Pokemon on Friday night was gold.

    Armor lock didn't seem very good when we were playing.

    It was just like...stop shooting the guy and then kill him when he comes out of it? Maybe the guys using it didn't know how to use it.

    that's what happens with [chat] games, everyone plays like crazy then moves on to the next game. It'll happen with halo too

    It seems like every power's utility depends on the situation. Armor Lock isn't really primarily useful for its invincibility against random fire.

    I've been playing LoL instead, though I haven't been gaming too much in general.

    It's kind of annoying but LoL is really fun but has a level system and I am behind my friends, so I am trying to catch up both mechanically and skill wise so I can hang with them. I'm already pretty good at MNC though and have nothing left to unlock that would give me a benefit, so it is hard to justify playing MNC over LoL right now. Eitherway I am having fun but playing LoL is getting me stuff.

    I am weak.

    It makes explosive weapons (grenades, concussion shot, banshee secondary fire, etc) useless and I'm pretty sure if you hold it down until it expires it will drain shields if the enemy is nearby. It'll also wreck vehicles if they try to hit you. In a regular firefight it can delay your death and throw an enemy's timing off.

    Jetpack seemed super useful, all the time, unless you were playing a tunnel map. Then it was all about that cloak.

    I think the people I was up against didn't realize you could toggle it on off? How quick can you toggle it? Using it to tank nades does sound decently useful.

    Jetpack is really slow. It's trivially easy to shoot at somebody who's hovering around. You can take people by surprise and move across the map in unconventional ways and a few weapons are very effective while airborne, though.

    The activation time for all of the special abilities is pretty much the same. Not more than a second between fighting normally and using the ability probably and I think you can use it again if you don't drain it all the way but I'm not sure.

    My brief experience with the game was: If I have a jetpack and you don't, you die via nades.

    Tenuously!

    MNC is a third person class based shooter first and has light DotA elements.

    League of Legends is straight up DotA. It controls like an RTS where you have one hero and do 5v5s and your characters level up and you earn money for items and upgrade skills and have to push towers. There are lots of heroes and lots of items and lots of powers to learn. Games can run pretty long (40+ minutes).

    That said, it's free and I think fun so give it a shake.

    I like using the rocket launcher. It's as close to a spinfusor as you'll get I think.
