Maybe a scheduled Geezers Gone Wild night is in order to get us to actually log on at the same time? 

In other news, Respawn has implemented one of the best anti-cheat measures I've ever seen.  Instead of banning you when they detect a cheat, they force you to play solely with other cheaters.

why you no read my post pug?

I use so many voice commands I don't think I could go back to it being unplugged.  The auto-login is also nice.

New update finally adds friend notifications so people will find it harder to ignore me.  yay!

Also an increase in quality of 'record that' recordings, so expect more of those as well

50% multiplier to any RIF/SIF/XP bonus you use this weekend.  So pop a 100% xp bonus bar, get 150%, pop 2 bars (100+50) and get 225 (100+50+75)  not bad deal, wonder if I can tear myself away from dark souls and titanfall

using the smoke requires staying still, staying still should not be done in the stryder  ninja

When I use smoke on the stryder, it's dashing in, smoking them and running away.  doesn't help against rodeo, but it does destroy enemy titans fast (even in their dome apparently)

Quote from: YellowKing on March 20, 2014, 01:08:29 AM

I treat Titans like I treated tanks in the old M1 Abrams Battle Tank game for the Sega Genesis (which was cited by Respawn was one of their inspirations, which I thought was awesome).

Just like tank combat games, if you go head to head, you're going to get destroyed. If you expose your flanks, you're going to get destroyed. It's all about using cover. Darting in and out to take potshots at the enemy then retreating back to your cover. Knowing when to back off. If your shields go down, you're screwed. You have to know when to retreat, shield back up, then re-enter the fray.

I think the mistake lies in thinking that Titans, by their look (and by the conditioning we've received from other mech games), are these big unstoppable beasts. They're not. You have to play them as you're almost as vulnerable as a pilot, and use many of the same tactics you'd use while in pilot mode.

This is all very true.  Also keep in mind all titans have the same shield value, only the health varies.  The stryder moves much faster and has more dashing and faster recharge on dashing.  Once you start to evade and recover shields, the stryder becomes the far better of the three imo.

i loved gauntlet, though I have not so fond memories of playing it with my sister at IU and she'd move like she's going to go down the stairs so I'd go down, then she'd continue playing the level for another 5 minutes or so without me.  bitch. slywink

Soul plays, but he doesn't answer or accept invites when doing it slywink  Tried the last two nights.

Oh shit... I got two invites, but they were weird..  Something to the effect " We found a game for your party.  Hit accept "  Didn't give me the normal Hark invited you

In my defense both times I was stopping to play attend to other stuff. 

my bad, Hark

that's because I was IN your party, I joined you then got ignored. slywink  pfft, back to dark souls

Some of that feels like nitpicking to me, but some makes sense.  I have no problem with 5 game modes or 10 weapons.  If a game is done well, it could have one weapon, one map and one mode for all I care.  Same with cosmetic customization.

Private matches are coming in the first big patch, it was something they wanted for launch but missed.

No clue what private lobbies are other than matches, if he means like the old lobbies, that's what the party system does.  I don't really like it that much but you can't be afraid to move on when something like that changes imo.

Clan support maybe, haven't been in a shooter yet that really did it worth doing anyway.

WTF does he mean by no rematches?  It's quite the opposite.  If I had to complain about something it'd be that every match is a rematch because it doesn't switch up teams at all.  If you have 12 random people it seems like wherever it puts you at the start is where you stay until you leave, even if teams get lopsided.

No emblems is a very, very good thing imo.  So tired of the pornographic or disgusting BO emblems.

One main stream shooter in 5 years has had destructive terrain and such, we're not at a point we can mark that as a negative I think.  If it had it, it would be a positive, but marking it down because it's lacking it seems silly.  I think it should score less because it doesn't have ship to ship combat in space and I can't play as the flying bird things! slywink

I do wish they would do something like Section 8 or whatever it was called though and instead of different game modes just have the objectives dynamically evolve as you play.  I really enjoyed that.

Good game play is what I care about, and it has it for me.

Played a ton of this the last few days, was taking the slightly harder route of dual wield and practically no armor.  For days I was dodging everything like a ninja, then today I log on and seemingly can't time shit.  Frustrating sometimes. lol

Poison and Bleed are crazy good in pvp btw, as are the fist and claw weapons.  Bit disappointed in the katanas this time through, a bit slow for me.  I've been primarily dual wielding rapiers for the speed and reach, but the lack of horizontal slashes definitely hurts, especially in pvp at times.   Dual whips is silly fun too.  I probably should just go back to sword/dagger and shield though, it's far easier to use and more effective overall.  There's just something about the double thrust with both weapons, major damage and in my case apply bleed AND poison, one from each blade.  Would have to give up bleed I think if I dropped dual wield.

tough choice.  Bleed in pvp when it triggers makes them take a chunk of hp AND lowers their max stamina, lowers stam regen and makes them walk slower.  That's huge.  Poison on the other hand pretty much saps anyone's health bar in under 10 seconds when it builds up and goes off.

Defending against rodeoing has gotten a lot trickier now that people are catching on to the signs of smoke or a dismount.  If my smoke doesn't work, it's basically suicide to open the hatch since people now instantly hop off and know where you're coming out better than you know where they'll be.

Now the safest and most reliable way to go is to have a teammate shoot off the pest, which I guess is probably by design.  If only I could press a button to have my Titan just lean against a building or something and scratch off the rodeo-er.

Catch em off guard with an early ejection, throws you both way up and you pop em

I think the point is that if you stop playing because it's no fun to die so fast, you will never get to the point where you don't die that fast.  It's a hump of unfun that you have to get past, just like anything in life you aren't good at. (except sex, that tends to be fun even if you aren't good at it, or so I hear slywink )

My last match early this afternoon, all I did was have a smart gun and killed over 50 grunts and specters. Ended up just killing two pilots but was still the MVP in attrition mode.

As an alternative, play hardpoint and take enhanced parkour. Go to the point nearest your base, hop up on a good wall and watch the points roll in (+75, +75, +75...) Kill unsuspecting enemies who walk in. Get the active sonar and you can even see them coming.

I love doing this with the SMG since it fires well from the hip
