Re: My strategy in 22 replays

Game 12 (ID 325391) Predicting his grenade exactly, and doing the unexpected, wins me this game in round 1. I also manage to guess where he puts his rockets until he fails to guess where I put mine. Then there is just waiting him out. If he attacks, he loses. If I attack, it’s a full on 50/50 gamble...

Re: My strategy in 22 replays

Game 1 (ID 277295) - Note my use of rockets to take away cover and make unexpected paths for my guys. - Note my mg #4 at the end of round 1. At round 2 he ignores everything, steps foward 2 steps and then kills the rocketeer. My opponent didn’t factor this into his plan. Game 2 (ID 278812) (Play wit...

My strategy in 22 replays

I’ve long wondered whether or not to make this thread, as discovering these strategies were a lot of the fun for me. More so than the strategy and the winning itself. And the rankings I found nothing but frustrating, as I won games and still lost ranking. But suddenly I found myself remembering FS a...

Re: "Essential" features

So I thought a bit about this on my way home today: I think that the most essential feature that FS needs right now is a better matchmaking engine. Most users haven't played ten games yet. The top is very active, and then there are a couple of people below that who have made it to a hundred games. ...

Re: 2 weeks

Icebrain, I don't get it. Your arguments. You've been here longer than the rest of us, and so that means we can't tell you that you're a whiner? You've posted the most, apparently, and that alone should give you lots of respect? If the forum turns into a shitfeast of doom and whines, then there is a...

Re: THE MODE 7 HOTLINE

I want to be able to move players on the other team, even when I can see them. This would allow me to (easier) add ignores and other commands when my opponent stacks his players.

Re: 2 weeks

I think this entire thread is a prime example on how to NOT let the devs know they could be doing a much better job at bugfixing. Mostly harsh words and whines, resulting in nothing but adverse effects. Devs think more negatively about coming here, and rather spend their time playing and working on ...

Grenade launcher timer not resetting, despite not being used

I've had this happen to me in quite a few games now. As I reposition my grenadeguy every round, the grenade gets fired later and later in the round. When I eventually want to skip firing one round to "reset" the grenade timer, nothing happens. The following round he fires just as late, if not later....

Re: "Essential" features

(1) Fix the timeout of games where players suddenly quit playing. This, to me, is very important.

(2) Remove rating from customized games.

Re: Players not finishing a game when they are losing.

I currently got 22 active games older than 14 days. It would seem the 2-week timeout doesn't function properly?

Exploit? Or fair game?

Hey, I'm a big fan of tactical games. Especially finding tactics that takes my opponents unawares. I'm wondering though, is UK1 game 315463 an exploit, or is this fair game? What's happening is I'm cycling duck-stand, making my opponent freeze until the rocket hits the wall behind him. It is easily ...
