    Just played a game of crossfire where the enemy team had 6 techs and 2 doombringers.

    It wasn't really fun.

    Edited:

    In fact playing against technicians isn't fun full stop.

    TDM is only inferior because of the lack of Vehicles, anyway. It's still got a lot of swooping by and stealing flags at 200km/h.

    Of course nothing beats sniping a flag carrier across the map with a single fusion mortar shell.

    Saw a video of jetskiing in Ascend, got hit with a nostalgia wave and remembered I had a beta key. I installed the game and activated the key, but when I try to start up the game it tells me "this game was not properly authenticated at launch time". What do I do?

    I got a beta key from Facebook, I installed the game and all, but when I enter the key, it says it's already used, and the terms of agreements don't show up, with the message "cannot connnetc to servers. Register later" or something like that. Do I just have to wait, or is this a normal problem?
    (And yes, I got the code from their page by liking it)

    I don't understand how a class can be cheap if every class is cheap.
    I meant the prices. The only cheap class by that connotation is Brute.

    Edited:

    Decided to pick up Infiltrator since the XP refund and all classes are cheaper than weapons. It's really not as bad as everyone always made it out to be. Also the spinfusor for it is really fun to use.
    Well of course it doesn't seem like a bad class when you buy the brand new amazing weapon for it.

    So is the Backstab-Perk gone for good?
    It has been rolled into the close combat perk, so you get protection from close combat in addition to the backstab perk (at the highest level of it).


    Due to the introduction of the Stealth Spinfuser, the Infiltrator is now pretty much interchangeable with the Pathfinder.
    I disagree with this, for a number of reasons. For one, the stealth spinfusor only does 700 on a direct hit compared to the pathfinder's 812. The energy regen of the pathfinder just is too good to pass up. In duels with pathfinders, the infiltrator gets the short end of the stick, unable to escape or outmaneuver the pathfinder.

    The inflitrator may be similar in some respects, but by no mean can it replace pathfinder.

    Jesus, the Tech thumper is ridiculous. It can kill a medium in two near-misses, a Heavy in three, it explodes instantly, has tons of ammo, and a large splash.

    I have stopped using the Soldier entirely - I just go as Tech with the Thumper, Shotgun, Grenades, Safety Third, Survivalist, and rape the enemy gen with that.
    I can spam turrets as well and get free points.

    The tech has gone from being a defensive class to being one of the best offensive classes.

    I hope they fix it soon. It's a little silly.

    The Thumper also makes the Infiltrator even more worthless at infiltrating. If they have any doubts of infiltrators nearby, they can just start blindly firing the Thumper - even 1 point of splash damage will reveal the cloaker.

    Whoever at Hirez thought that giving the Tech a Big-Thumper would be a good idea needs to be slapped.

    I think I should've read about the light assault rifle for pathfinder before I bought it, it's burst fire, not fully automatic :(, makes sense though.

    Technicians, technicians everywhere. Hopefully with more people playing each class, they can balance each class better.

    I think the doombringer needs a buff - I've been playing a good few rounds with him (playing as defence as intended) and the thing I notice most is that:
    a) Even fully upgraded shields suck ass
    b) The primary gun sucks compared to the classes you're meant to be fighting. That MIRV launcher and the fractal grenade just decimates everything you try. It's good at taking down lights but that's about it.

    Infiltrator did get a buff in that it's actually useful with the Stealth Spinfusor, but now it's even worse at infiltrating bases because of the Tech Thumper spam.

    Rather than make the classes unique roles more useful (their packs) they just handed out bigger guns.

    I changed my mind, this patch made the game 100x more boring.

    Entire games now are both teams super turtling in base with sentinel/tech/doombringer and no one attacking. Games are decided by which defense is bad, and trying to cap or play O at all if an exercise in frustration.

    Make it a secondary, and move the double barrel shotgun or the other gun (forgot what the other secondary was) to primary.

    I just go raider (jammer, whiteout grenades and arx buster) and royally rape the technicians. But it does need to be looked at a bit.

    People seem to like the MIRV, but I feel the fuses is really unpredictable. Sometimes it will immediately separate and explode, and other times it will do the full fuse after separating,

    I bought a Raider and a Tech. I think I found my new primary classes. Once I can finally GO FAST and capture flags, it'll be the Pathfinder too along with the Raider and Tech.

    I think I wasted all my exp on them. I have 3k left.
