im crying tears like seriously
Gonna try to run this on my laptop on ultra low, wish me luck. Liking the page to get the beta code now.
Damn, this is a long download. Now we play the waiting game.
just got survivalist and looter
i can touch so many people now
It's getting pretty lame with every game I join all the high level players stack into one team and it ends up a 2 minute 5-0 CTF, I could easily stack into the winning team but it's a shit match whether you win or lose. I'm guessing there just isn't enough Oceania server players to sort into balanced matches by rank.
Infiltrator is such a bullshit, unbalanced class. It is way overpowered.
am I missing the joke?
Damnit I hate being grounded.
I am tribes-deprived.
With Tech just get the motion detectors and infiltrators won't be a problem for you, also helps if you have the thumper along with them.
I honestly fear that the tecehnician is going to be reduced to uselessness in future patches. For some strange reason, everyone thinks the tech is currently the most OP class in the entire game. People are saying this before AND after the huge patch.
Apart from the Big Thumper (which I agree, needs some some tweaks), all the tech has is a sub-standard SMG, very basic grenades, and turrets that die in 900 damage so any explosive weapon can kill them and they only do 65 damage.
I'm not seeing the OP.
I wouldn't say they're OP as such. Though they need to be changed, they negate the need for the default soldier class currently.
The Thumper should be a soldier weapon, and the Tech should have the Thumper DX, the Thumper has a longer range, and when Tech is defending they really don't need that range on the weapon at all, the damage too is debatable whether they need the extra to defend with considering they have turrets and an optional shotgun for CQC.
Right now they're basically a buffed Ranger. A 910 direct damage Thumper + Hitscan pistol + Grenades + Turrets. The only thing the default Soldier load out has is what, 15-20 extra energy or so? I'd rather have the pistol and turrets over the energy.
And is it just me, or does Diamond Sword ALWAYS win on that map Crossfire? The one where the flags are on those 2 ships and theres a huge hilly field in between the ships.
I think why people cry about TCNs is because they get pretty powerful in high numbers. They can have turrets everywhere and the generator will be back up as soon as the threat is neutralized. It requires quite a few people to go on base attack in that situation, but most pub players i've played with like to either defend or cap mostly.
1. Make turrets do negligible damage (10 or so) but have each shot give mild knockback, so extended exposure will knock you way off course. This will mean they'll actually need to be taken out before Pathfinders can grab the flag and get out, encouraging teamwork.
2. Stop with them being inexplicably tied to generators. That's just weird and annoying, plus it doesn't make sense. They're deployable turrets, they shouldn't be tied to generator power. Forcefields still should be though. Techs should be useful as defense when the generator is down, although I have a feeling the turrets are tied to generator power to encourage techs repairing generators and stuff.
3. Give Soldier the big Thumper, give Techs the Thumper DX. The machine gun (even though I love it) isn't great compared to the soldier's weapons, and really techs shouldn't be chasing anyone or fighting at range, which means the Thumper is better suited for close quarters or indoors, which is basically where the Tech should be at any given time.
4. Techs should be able to give armor packs/buffs to allies, maybe in exchange for grenades. Encourages further teamwork, allows tech to play defensively while others fight.
I can get myself faster as an infiltrator than a pathfinder because the stealth spinfusor does so little damage.
They better not come near my precious thumper with the nerf stick.
Or I just go jihad and decloak in the gen room and start throwing stickies at everyone/my feet.
I get about 7fps on this game. :c
Im in love with this game, first tribes game ever and i fucking love it.
Just lost a TDM because one of my teammates decided to jump in front of me when I held the flag
