    yoiks

    Sounds like it'll be better to phase out your withdrawals if you've got millions in the bank.

    I think with all the new challenge stuff they should decouple appearance unlocks to character cards, make appearance unlocks come from challenge completions; only need a single character card, and if they want they can just make a generic 'class XP' card to replace it.

    They can't take stuff out of the store. They need to keep people spending.

    With all the new weapons/mods that isn't a problem.

    EDIT: I may actually put some real time in this weekend for the event if the DLC is coming out tues. I still have a pretty huge backlog of missing weapons from the past two packs though; I'd be nice either way to go into it with a couple mil credits if possible.

    Huh. Maybe stagger it to half a million per character launch, or just blow enough to X out most of the weapons and then wait for the next round of characters.

    ... or drop it all maxing out everything possible and accept that each consecutive rollout will likely have fewer and fewer credits built up to buy in with.

    I mean, I've spent untold hours as the classes in the game already, it's not like only getting 4 new ones and and the whole set of old ones to try on new maps and for challenges would get stale anytime soon as it is.

    First they came for the Muslims, and we said NOT TODAY, MOTHERFUCKER!

    Gonna be 100% honest here.

    Nothing you just said made a lick of sense.

    So now I'm having a bit of inner debate - the only items I haven't unlocked completely are the ultra rare weapons (80 unlocks left), and the gear - about a dozen of each uncommon and rare.

    EXCEPT, for the new gun, the Raider. So, when I play later tonight to start hoarding credits, do I spend some of them now to quickly unlock the Raider, or do I just wait until the DLC hits and start unlocking everything?

    As I learned with the Argus, I know I'll have the Raider at X if I buy 5-7 PSPs, no problem. What would you guys do?

  • The Dude With HerpesThe Dude With Herpes Lehi, UTRegistered User regular
    Depends on how much you care about the mods that have dumb unlock rates.

    If you're fine with the mods you have, save it; the raider isn't going to mess up your unlocks for the DLC stuff that much, and instead of just getting tons of ammo while unlocking the raider, you'll still be getting the new stuff and maybe a few mods here and there.

    Waiting, in your situation, is a win/win as far as I can tell.

    Hmm, good points. Yeah, I guess I can wait a few days. I'd like to try it, seeing as how someone upthread called it a Piranha with more damage and a higher rate of fire - would love to try that on my N7 Destroyer - but I guess I'll wait.

    My goal is to raise 2 mil or more this weekend. I have never, ever saved up credits, but this time will be worth it.

  • Phoenix138Phoenix138 ArizonaRegistered User regular
    Yeah you're probably better off waiting. It took me about 9-10 PSP's to get the Raider to X on Tuesday because I got a few packs that had two level IV consumables rather than the gun. If you wait until there are new characters in the pool the odds of that happening should be reduced.

  • DragkoniasDragkonias That Guy Who Does Stuff You Know, There. Registered User regular
    I'll probably try to max out the Raider over the weekend just to lower my chances of getting it when the DLC comes out.

    But yeah, if you're looking to get more new stuff with a lower chance of ammo waiting for the new update is best.

  • TheSecretSeventhTheSecretSeventh GARegistered User regular
    ok the DLC looks fucking awesome. I'm actually going to be playing this sometimes instead of hopping on BL2 every day.

    I hate to complain about anything, and I totally get why they're staggering the release of the 16(!!!!) new classes, but having saved up 2 million credits in preperation for this, I don't know if I should blow my whole load on tuesday or try and stagger out my credits. I still haven't unlocked the fury or demolisher, and I have several rares/gear not maxed out so I'm sure I'd still get use out of my credits on tuesday. I just don't want the next 4 classes to roll out with nothing saved up.

    Fuck it, I'll keep buying PSPs until I get a demolisher. That's the class I want the most right now, so I might as well. Plus running that class will make farming gold/platinum that much easier and faster.

    Don't forget the lower clip capacity.

    It a 2-shot. But if you reload cancel I think its DPS is actually higher.

  • AgusalimAgusalim Registered User regular
    reload cancelled raider gives you the highest dps in the game (except for reegar vs. shields/barriers)

    only problem is its even less accurate than the piranha wi a crazy elliptical spread pattern so you gotta be in 'inappropriate touching' range

    Yeah, if you want Demolisher really bad, better to try and unlock it now while the pool of possible unlocks is comparatively smaller - will be harder after the DLC comes out.

    Oh hmm, well I'll try it at some point. Despite the slight nerfs I'm still quite happy with the Piranha.

    The last two could just be the class talent names.

    Just started playing again. I missed most of the fun at release and everything with being in Afghanistan, but I'm having fun with it now. Only problem is I haven't unlocked... well, much of anything. I've unlocked all the low-level guns, so I think I'm just going to save up and get a bunch of the PSPs. Got an Asari Vanguard I'm enjoying, but other than that I mostly just have the basic classes.
