9401  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: WOW-Video of 63 Rogue killing 63 warrior AND 70 paladin on: April 16, 2007, 12:59:59 AM
pvp on this server is often frustrating to me in the sense that it's too easy.  He KNEW I was coming since this was my 6th time attempting to kill the two of them and I had killed the warrior before he even arrived.  Knowing there is a rogue about, I'm amazed how many people just rez, eat and run off to hit the first mob they see.

Today I was camped for the first time in 19 days played.  It was a blast and I really had to work to get out of it.  67 rogue, 63 hunter and 70 shaman.  No way was I going to win that fight so I just had to get out and that was a challenge in and of itself.  I wish I recorded one of my attempts to escape when I got out of stunlock just in time to hurl myself off a bottomless cliff and the stupid rogue jumped to hit me as I lept only to fall to her death. smile

I'm hoping that I can find some decent world pvp as I get near 70, but I fear I might have to wait for Warhammer for that and sadly that has no stealthed class.

People claimed the exact same thing when Dead Rising came out.

I think it has to do with the fact that both Dead Rising and GHII are 'making' people play for many more hours than their system is used to and thus exposing the already flawed 360 hardware durability that we all knew about.

aye, and almost everyone I run into is as bad or worse.  Just today I beat 2 64's at the same time multiple times and a 66 warrior a few times.  Only challenges I've had so far are when the 70's get a jump on me.  I'm dying to get to 70 and see if it's only the people who haven't made it to 70 that suck and that's why they aren't 70 yet.

Guess rogues need a nerf eh?  Roll Eyes

Anyway, this was taken earlier today by myself, I haven't edited anything yet other than compressing it down from 3gb to 200+ mb.

The music is from a mod called soundtrack and is automatic while playing.

So I came across a 63 warrior in the middle of a fight and being the nice polite rogue I am I decided to gank him.  Shortly after I accidentally backed into a mob and while fighting that mob I noticed a 70 paladin hovering over my head so I prepared to bail.  I was a bit slow clicking my free action potion so he got the stun on me.  The video shows me attempt to kill them a few times and failing but succeeding to escape.  Basically I wore them down then got them when they were tired and had burned several cooldowns.

I was pretty proud of this, I did once beat a 70 at 61, but it's much harder imo to fight 2v1 than 1v1.  Ah well, thought I'd share this so some other sub rogues could see what can be done.  I made plenty of mistakes and still won, but that's largely due to the quality (or lack thereof) of alliance toons on my server.

I played this for a couple minutes and then deleted it.  I don't think giving people only the Hard difficulty to try out was really a smart choice, as it certainly turned me off the game. 

I hit the face buttons with my thumb, and making me hit two of them at the exact same time after only 10 seconds of playing made me say that "this just isn't for me".  But I guess I'm not really into that sort of game anyway, which is one of the reasons I haven't bothered to try Guitar Hero. 

My demo had easy, medium and hard available.  Easy and medium for one song, and hard for another.  You only tried the one song with hard?
9415  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Rainbow 6 Saturday (4/14) 9 pm eastern on: April 11, 2007, 08:55:44 PM
you wouldn't be sitting there for 15 minutes, because the game is either won or lost in less than 15 minutes with no respawns.  I just like no respawn because it keeps people from spawn camping, and other people from bitching about spawn camping.

Actually, we were playing on Hark's server last night.

I kept getting lucky headshots on ATB when he was out in the open on the rooftop so I understand how he could feel like it wasn't much fun.  There were only 3-5 of us and he really didn't have many targets to practice with.

There was no spawn camping at all though, not sure where he got that from.  saywhat

It's a much different experience than GoW, and you have to think ahead, move more slowly and deliberately, and not go out in the open without a plan.  In gears you can go out in the open knowing that if someone shoots at you, you just dive, then roll behind cover and you're good.  In R6, you go out in the open, you die.  You have to only briefly present yourself as a target. 

Grenades used to bug the piss out of me as well, but you have to just always assume that when you see someone it's going to go like this:

1) both targets shoot at each other
2) if they are both still alive, one or both will throw a grenade and relocate back a bit

Always assume a grenade is following the initial burst of fire and either pre-emptively throw your own, or plan accordingly and seek cover.  When you know a grenades coming, you can almost always get out of the way even without running and/or diving.  We can play without grenades, but I've found it much less fun especially when the shields come out.  icon_eek

All in all a large part of his un-fun in my opinion is due to the large amounts of GoW he's played combined with the very low turnout on my server the last few nights.

I'm really hoping I can twist some of your arms into filling it up for some 7v7 carnage!

I'm in, I don't care for coop at all though.  I prefer either team survival, attack and defend or retrieval.  I think the order I like them is retrieval, team survival, attack and defend with no respawns, attack and defend with respawns and team sharpshooter.
9419  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Shadowrun? on: April 11, 2007, 01:50:13 PM
I found the game pretty fun.  It has some potential balance issues and some setups seem much more powerful than others but overall it was fun.

You choose a weapon loadout and a spell/tech loadout and one of four races with different stats and abilities.  It's closer to Gears in the gameplay only with teleporting, flying and summoning slywink

You Really Got Me was giving me trouble, I turned off the sound, and then I five starred it.

This is the biggest challenge for me by far over the PS2 version (more than the guitar controller change). The songs just seem to be out of synch with the notes on screen when I try to play it by ear rather than play it as a game. I've taken the advice the callibrate the controller but it didn't make a difference. I'm doing best when I watch the notes pass the target rather than try to listen to the music... and that's taking a lot of the fun out of it for me.

I only have this problem with easy and medium where there aren't notes and there should be.  I can play just fine by ear on hard and expert, what kind of display are you using?

Some of the AI cheating really annoys me, especially against either really low-level creatures or ones with magic resistance.

The "easy" monsters get a really bad case of "garbage-time", where they start getting insane mega combos when they have less than like 50 hp.

And feel free to test this one yourself: creatures with magic resistance will almost ALWAYS throw up resist when there is a really good move on the board, like a 4-5 match, or a well placed wildcard.  When fighting an Arboleth, sometimes it gets so bad that I'll just make the move and not use an ability (and thus let the next turn go to the AI).

I don't lose because of any of it, but it does needlessly extend how long the battle lasts.

the computer doesn't cheat, that's just your conspiracy gene turning on slywink

Saw that... combination wanting to finish the NBA finals in my season and a strong dislike for public games kept me out.

Only 4 slots out of the 14 were non-invite.  I usually start out that way until we get enough people and then make it invite only.  More fun to play with a couple random people than not at all when we're just starting.  Also with only 4 slots it's very easy to manage the people that need to be kicked.

They did redo how hammer-ons and pull-offs work in GH2.  You can just quickly hit the notes in succession now.  It's no longer 'realistic' in that you have to pull off the higher notes while holding lower ones, or keep holding lower ones when you hit the higher ones.  Now if you are quick enough to hit the next note, it counts.

This thread is such lies.

I'll tell you everything that's wrong with r6 multi: Spawn Camping.  This is my first encounter with this gameplay tactic.

I played some R6 multi last night and the other team was obviously more skilled than mine.  Rather than make it competitive by giving us a chance, they camped the spawn locations with their best players and killed us almost immediately after respawn. For the whole time. In both matches.  Boy that's a helluva good time right there.

I actually might be done with the game myself as attempting to rank up in such circumstances is intolerable, but I'm glad you've found a title that resonates so well with you.

Different Strokes for Different whatevs.



I prefer survival, and there's no spawn camping in survival since you never spawn

Yeah this was over for me before it ever even started. I'm lucky to finish most songs on hard. Don't have a chance in hell at ever finishing expert or competing with those that do.

While they don't have separate leaderboards for the different difficulties, your score does show what difficulty you earned it, so you can still compete at the difficulty you're comfortable with; it's all just for fun anyway. icon_biggrin

And don't sell yourself short; when I first tried out Hard, I thought there was no way I'd ever be able to try Expert, and now Expert is my standard difficulty!

I'm just starting to dip into expert so I jumped in and tried Jordan.  Uhm....I don't see how I'll EVER beat that on Expert...

there's a reason that there is a separate achievement for beating Jordan on Expert slywink
