Re: Tossing and pickup in endzone

I agree it shouldn't be stopped in any way, but it is clearly easier to throw it in the endzone and just be the closest to it in terms of distance to get 7 points vs: Having to catch it right before the endzone, and run it in. Which means you can get immediate tackled if someone knew you were going ...

Re: My first observations , thoughts, Tall Blocks

5) Yes I would assume this is the same effect as in frozen synapse: It is a visual representation only: If noone is capable of intercepting it, the animation will be high. In that example I can see the man closest to the quarterback is not standing still, the farthest guy is not quite in the path, h...

Tossing and pickup in endzone

I feel like tossing into the endzone, and simply touching it first, should be worth 1 less point than catching it and running it in.

It definitely takes a bit more planning and skill to catch it, and not get immediately tackled than it does to just run into the endzone and touch it.

Re: ELO implementation, half baked?

Fairness is not the topic of this thread but since it was broached I'll say a word: I believe that is the root topic of this thread. And is why some people want the ELO rating system. They must believe it is a more fair rating system? Or else if they just wanted another chance at the top then a res...

Re: ELO implementation, half baked?

Different ranking systems will always have different people at the top. There is no way to be "the best" there is only "the best at certain ranking system" I got high on the old system because I was good at minimizing losses when I did lose. I am pretty sure its not just because I played alot of gam...

Re: BUG or a new trick ?

Looks to me it might be the line of sight bug... Your sniper couldnt see his sniper yet, but he saw you for some reason I have seen this in different situations where one of two units doesnt see the other yet on weird wall angles. Sometimes it even results in one unit firing forever without hitting ...

Re: Ask A Question, Recieve An Answer (help us out pro playe

You receive a slight penalty for changing stance. Sometimes enough to negate cover advantage, sometimes not. So usually it is better to strafe aim over a window, than it is to crouch behind a window and stand up. (more recently it seems to be less of a penalty to stand up from behind cover) I don't ...

Re: Global rankings: win-loss ratio a better ruler than poin

I can't totally disagree as I was jobless for many months when this game first came out ha.

But on the other end of the coin its too easy to just refuse to play people you know you can't beat and get a high win loss ratio.

Re: Mode7 you need to start supporting the game further.

Man even if you make the "best game in 5 years" you get boat loads of whiners! That must be difficult to deal with mentally.

I would like to reiterate that even with all the flaws, this is the best game I have played in many years.

Old cranky rant

I have to be honest I don't like the newer extermination setup where you start at the opposite corners of the map. Extermination already has no incentive to push anywhere, the random setup at the start at least made it exciting and interesting and stressful to try and get somewhere safe. I thought i...
