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.

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?

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.

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

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.

Do you mean mortar? Use the notches in the crosshair. It will take you no more than three shots to hit your target if you adjust your aim using the notches.

Temple Ruins is, no joke, probably the best ctf map at this point. It does everything right:

-You spawn a decent distance from your base
-Distance between bases is the biggest yet, I believe. Map is pretty enormous by Tribes: Ascend standards
-Tons of steep hills and interesting terrain, like a volcano in the middle of the map.

Also they fixed the retarded ass Blood Eagle skins. They fixed Sentinel's color scheme, removed all the retarded 12 year old shit from Raider, and fixed Tech's helmet so he's not a retarded Bob the builder looking faggot.

nah, sabering hovering bumblebee mediums and sending them careening into the deathzone, lining the spawn zones with mines is what's funny. being unable to defend yourself with the chaingun is just sad.

The biggest flaw of this map is that stupid U ramp in the base that you clip into and lose all your speed every time you use it.
>> ID: 3d5967 -2 No. 216280

I haven't seen a dmb do anything fun/hilarious like that the whole time i've played, all they've done is died. Juggernaut is hilarious because how tight everyone packs together on the lava map.

tbh superheavy dmb with the boltcaster is probably the best class for it period because he's an immoveable knockback machine.

Don't rely on the class desriptions. At all. Doombringer can destroy vehicles with the Saber Launcher but that one is pretty bad too. Best thing against vehicles is Raider I think.
>> ID: efcfad -2 No. 216306
Landing shots on Shrikes is pretty damn hard for the raider, that's one area where the doombringer's pretty great.
>> ID: eca59e -2 No. 216307
Shrikes are really as to take down with any kind of SMG, the Raider is really effective unless they've changed it because I haven't played Raider in a while and nobody uses Shrikes anymore. Saber Launcher is pretty decent against Grav Cycles though.
>> ID: 3d5967 -2 No. 216308
"shrikes are really easy to damage with any smg?"

that's what you're saying right? Full raider smg last i tried can take out nearly half the health on a shrike in one magazine even without hitting every shot. did something change?
>> ID: eca59e -2 No. 216310
Yes sorry, I meant easy. I also get about half the health down with a mag. Played some Raider today after talking about it and nothing seems to have changed.

yeah well I tried that and I have to say after trying both weapons raiders hard as fuck to play well
sometimes I do well but other times most times they so holed up in the gen room I just can't do anything I might as well stop trying because what else am I good for?
Also if they have a tech with a thumper I just quit the game I kind of want my mouth to stay ulcer free.
>> ID: efcfad -2 No. 216378
The grenade launcher is actually effective outside the gen room, provided you get pretty good with it. Definitely better than the arx buster. The arx buster is good on indoor situations as well, but frankly being able to bounce grenades means the launcher can at least scare the shit out of generator room parties by sieging them until more people arrive. Plus it has a huge magazine and a larger splash radius.

Thumper techs are gay as shit but in my experience raider's one of the best classes to punish their retarded bullshit with.
>> ID: 3d5967 -2 No. 216380

The best being MIRV juggernaut because nothing beats that thing indoors.
>> ID: 7d6493 -2 No. 216382

raider is probably the strongest class in the game in just straight up combat
>> ID: efcfad -2 No. 216383
Yeah that shit is just fucking insane, but against an ordinary jug indoors a raider with decent energy can just eat a shell with shield gen, which no other class can manage. To me, a max energy raider with the launcher is quite possibly the best generator attacker.
>> ID: 3d5967 -2 No. 216385

MIRV close hit shell does nearly 1500 damage and then the raider has to deal with an 840 damage MKD shell and a 910 damage spindisc (600/650 on CQ impacts).

There is absolutely nothing in the game that can survive the juggernaut trifecta except the beowulf.

nova has higher dps if you can hit. the falcon is a crutch.

However, the falcon can damage shrikes while the nova blaster bounces off (seriously the fuck is this shit?) Also occasionally missiles from the saber will glitch and cause nova blasts to bounce off of them.

If you like to chase and like going indoors it's amazing. At low speed one burst instantly pulls you out of the blast radius of any weapon. Also good for e-grabs.

Jackal got a stealth buff: now does less self damage when sticky jumping. Also has actual fall off on the splash damage while in the air.
