    The nova blaster is pretty good indoors, in gen rooms and all. If you miss, it simply bounces off the walls and hits the target again!

    nova blaster is pretty good for everything

    once you get used to the projectile speed, it gets really easy and fun to use

    yea never understand why they just dont say "Jackal got its damage reduced from X to Y"
    Because the damage works on a gradient. It doesn't always do X damage. You could use the direct hit damage for X and Y but that doesn't really represent it best. Better to use a percentage that applies to the entire damage scale.

    It was the same way with global agenda. Things got progressively better balanced when updates came out as time went on.

    I'm disappointed that they aren't any skins for the Brute. Instead of the normal "merc with no helmet" they could have given him a disco suit. :(

    Goofy skins are the best way to make money in this game, fuck the lore, If it means I can see a raving brute alongside a tuxedo doombringer I don't care.

    Also the gladiator is ridiculously underpowered comparatively.

    I can see a million reasons why you'd use the plasma cannon over the auto shotty/colt though.

    Two primaries!

    The buffed Rage perk seems to be a bit glitchy at the moment.
    I was standing right on the Raindance flag stand and it only activated at 1/3 of the flag grabs.
    Once or twice it didn't activate when I was jetting straight up to the flag stand so perhaps you have to always have vision of the flag for it to even activate.
    Nontheless the mass reduction is incredible for chasing every single sub 200 flag carrier that somehow managed to grab your flag with a back to front.

    You can? Because I can't.

    The thing about the secondaries is that they are good for picking off flying targets that are harassing you, fleeing targets, or finishing off wounded targets. Why would you want to have two guns equipped that both fulfill the same role?

    Got my first team kill with a perfect orbital

    I think it killed 8 of the heavies who were defending the stand and the gen entrance.

    Got one of my friends to start playing this game with a referral code, and joined a match they were in. It was full of a bunch of new players all below rank 5. I had fun raping the enemy team

    Except two primaries are most likely never a good idea since they fill the same role, having one primary and a finisher is usually the best combination.

    I'm finding out that the playing as Sentinel is heavily reliant on having a good ping. The internet where I'm at can be really inconsistent and once the ping starts to rise it gets a lot harder to hit things. The Nova Colt is affected especially because then there is a delay between when you shoot and where the projectile actually fires.

    Played for a bit, saw one guy using the gladiator and plasma cannon. And he had lower score than all the other brutes.

    I'm rolling plasma cannon and Heavy 'fusor right now, It's working out rather well, The plasma cannon is good for up close and personal due to smaller splash radius.

    I wish I wasn't too busy to get a few rounds in on the new update. I'm definitely going to make use of those hours I should be sleeping in tonight.

    Anyway, just wanted to ask, are there any busy Tribes 2 or Vengeance servers in Australia? I want to give them a shot, but I don't want to download the game and find it dead.

    I'm rather sure I've read 3% damage reduction on the technician's Thumper in a patch some time ago
    Before the infiltrator updates I'm sure.
