So you mean I won't have a .5 to 1 second lag between button and throw with my discs? That was the hardest part to gauge. Just have to hit the button and start keep your aim tracking the opponent and hope it throws while you're still lined up, drives me crazy.

Trying to throw sticky grenades at live turrets was a complete crapshoot, because you either dodged while jetting and missed, or you sat on the ground and took a load to the face and disintegrated

Thumper techs managed to suck out all of the fun I had with the game, not even snipers, lock-on missiles, mine spam at the flag, stealth spinfusors, MIRV spam, Shrikes, tanks, pathfinders going 300 sanics could do this.

I got fucking destroyed because I didn't have one of those today.
Just me and another Juggernaut one on one, fighting over a good mortar position, and for every spinfusor I missed he got 15 fucking rounds in me.
Meanwhile I can't regenerate because of the pissant tics of damage that stray in if I try to take cover.
I still don't think this game is p2w like so many scrubs cry about but there is such a thing as counter picking.
I should have just gone another class like Doombringer or Infiltrator to roust him out.

Or maybe I'm just total ass with spinfusor and need to get more BPS's on the slowest moving class in the game.
>> ID: 3d5967 -2 No. 215838

on the same level the jugg is unbeatable with that gun unless he runs into a doombringer who can land his shots. The firing rate on that gun is just so obscene you can't really do anything to him when you need 5 solid spinfusor hits to kill him. of course it just turns jugg into another kill stealing Pedro's adidas shirt doombringer open field only because he's completely useless with that indoors.

>Damage reduced by roughly 4% on Technician's Thumper.
>only 4%
Even if that number was appropriate the damage isn't the main problem.
I can't decide which takes less thought to use, fractals or tech thumper.
Otherwise a pretty sweet patch.

Fractals don't damage generators anymore
Well shit.
>> ID: 3d5967 -4 No. 215847

That's stupid what are they thinking?
>> ID: df1ea8 -1 No. 215849
A 4% reduction? It's not even enough to prevent 1-shotting lights so I don't see the point of it.

I'm okay with fractals being exclusively for area denial now. It was just too easy to rush into the enemy gen and vomit all your fractals on it for an easy destruction.
>> ID: 388301 -2 No. 215853
While I do think that fractals were too good, they were really all that set brute apart as a unique class. This seems like some hefty overreach as well.

Now that Brute suicides won't work, generators are much easier to defend and deployables are that much more reliable. Are scrambler and raider able to survive long enough to take down turret protected gen rooms? Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't turrets hitscan as well?

I don't mind the idea, a more aggressive looking armor that really plays up the bird of prey thing but the execution is just awful.

the only thing that that sucks about the new raider model is the face looking too heavy, but that seems hardly significant to me because i think all of the blood eagle helmets look retarded.

no he's right the new one looks fuckin stupid like a goddamn stag beetle. raider should have like a damn bald eagle head helmet and wings and a flowing american flag cape imo
>> ID: 7d6493 -2 No. 215910

uh that's because its broken (there's only the highest LOD model in the game currently) and actually just displays the default armor with slight color changes at ranges greater than 3 feet.

so yeah, its literally not noticeable in game at this juncture, you're right.

damn... I'm actually gonna have to bind both of them now. this totally ruins my hotkey layout

why are there two buttons for jetting anyway? can't you just hit the jump button then hit the pack button to do the same thing as jump jet?
>> ID: 3d5967 -2 No. 216061

Yes. I've been trying ctrl for jump/jet and right click for jet only. It's not working I think i'm just switching control back to jump and hitting both.

Or maybe i should turn on auto-ski and use spacebar for jump?
>> ID: 5ba0f0 -2 No. 216062
you can.. ideally all three should be bound separately but that's a weird setup for me to get used to. The problem is frictionless skiing. Skiing used to be glorified bunny hopping so you could have jump/ski both on spacebar. You need jump to get vertical momentum into jetpack, but now because skiing is frictionless rather than jumping, you need to be able to jump straight out of ski if you want that vertical momentum into jetpack and you're not on an upslope. Having jump/jet enables this and also dumbs down jetting upwards in general so you don't have to worry about getting that initial momentum.

I don't have the patience to get used to a separate jump key. I guess I'll never be pro..
>> ID: 4a6c82 -2 No. 216064
I use JumpJet and that has never happened. The only thing I get that ever slows me down is suddenly hitting a snag invisibly and I am shot 100 feet into the air while on a flat surface.

How the fuck do you play Raider?

The Arx Buster feels like such a piece of shit weapon, and yet I am always being annihilated by raiders.
>> ID: 485fa5 -2 No. 216077
the arx shots travel much faster/more accurately than thumper shots do, but they require impact before their explosion timer starts--the farther they are, the more you have to lead.

indoors, it's much easier to land stickies and the grenades explode faster overall, and switch to the smg to deliver massive lead facials.
>> ID: 1d31c3 -2 No. 216085
it's also more suited for armored targets like turrets, generators and vehicles
if you want to fuck up other players buy the grenade launcher, it can pretty much lay waste to anything indoors
>> ID: 3d5967 -2 No. 216091

The ARX's projectile speed is actually great for fast moving targets going in straight lines. Raider works great as pedestal defense too.

ARX takes some practice, but it's a pretty good weapon. Much harder to use in the open field, but it's good against fatties.

I like running 'scrambler' to take out turtleing teams. White-out grenades are hilarious.
>> ID: c239c1 -2 No. 216097
one thing i've seen is people who fire a single crash bomber, then fire the second two while the tech is dodging , which kind of fucks up the rhythm of jump-shoot-land fights.
>> ID: 401b7c -2 No. 216101
Got it. Thanks for the advice.

I'll save for the grenade launcher and try to use the arx buster more effectively in the meantime.

Chasing is the greatest game stall, I've never loved llamas as much as I do now.

On a related note, I've found it's easy as fuck to cap when you're on the losing side of a really one-sided match. Nobody expects a soldier going 180 sanics to cap the flag, I guess. Usually fucks with the enemy team's morale, too; causes them to become overly defensive and begin turtling, for example.

Also, how the fuck do you deal with that one badass pathfinder repeatedly capping at 300+ sanics who doesn't seem deterred by base turrets, technicians, fusion mortars, doombringer shields, etcetera? Because I typically leave matches when one of those shows up, since the games end in minutes and nobody seems capable of stopping them.
