well, i'll look into it, i dont have hovers or crickets atm.
i would say though, it seems that its the kind of build that you have to be very good with, 
in order to get results with it. i know that sounds obvious
but its not really a pick up and play build.

ive been killed quite a few times by them, but i have also killed lots of them quite easily
when you rush them they tend to panic, make a mistake and or lose control more often than a tank or legs
and an aurora with two cyclones moving and firing from medium to long rage?

i dont worry about em
 

then theres the stealth. without a cheeta you have to stay out of the way for 30 seconds while it cools down
you get one attack then its back to hiding 
what if the guy you were firing at, is now firing at you? seconds to reload, and he is focused on one spot

shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii*

two Retchers, stealth, cheeta, apollo, doppler full range, fused purple radiator. favourite cabn

job done. 

theres enough damage there to kill anyone with 1 suprise attack.

i should add that most of my builds use the torrero or favourite cabin,.
and i dont have stealth in my retcher build.
i have the torreo , and a second fused purple radiator in it.

 

My Cricket build uses a fused Harpy, 7 blue hovers, and I swap out the Chameleon and Hot Red in exchange for the heavy engine that improves the reload by 20%. I can go into tactics with you in comms as it gets into our teamplay that I don't want to share with the world. 

Retchers work OK against push comps, but we're seeing a lot more cannon teams after the update and Retchers just can't close the gap before getting stripped. Cyclones are a bit better against cannons, but a good cannon team has no problem stripping them. Crickets are quick enough to evade cannons at range and contact teams, they can put out big DPS at any distance. 

It takes some practice to get good results, but it shouldn't take too long.

In a pub beer garden, UK's got good weather:17::01212:

I do wish more top level players had a similar attitude rather than aspiring to get in the top clans, bring some competition in, help other players.

I would rather have hungry players with entry level CB gear and eager to learn than someone who has Relics and "knows it all".

If we had custom battles like PC I could bring in a lot more people to train.

thing is, i sent a request to join, 

i'm not even sure what the offer is at this point. 

i accept!....   

 

I've been in the shop working on the race car since 4 am to escape the heat. I'll be back in the A/C when the temperature hits 30c. I hit the forums up when I'm waiting for paint to dry or welds to cool. The car and family come before video games and they get the most of my time when the weather is good.

so yeah, just an update from me, 

11 days later and nothing.

i'm taking it as a wind up.

i i used up most of my resources making hovers and crickets.

and the fact i took the time  to create a build that needed to be

technically viable, and perform well in a whole new world of ways

really kinda stings a bit. 

like a waste in nearly every single respect.

anyway... moving on.

and for the record, i hated hovers and crickets.

i hated them before i put the effort in.

i'm getting into hovers as a platform though



anyway... moving on.

Did you just say the triple cricket hover was a waste of time and resources?

Maybe you need more practice with it? What cabin are you using in it? 

I would make a triple cricket with the harpy and see how you like it. Less armor, but more sting up close as well as extra ammo...

erm.... its not as simple as that.

at the time, i felt that using up my resources, seeing as i dont have much, 
in order to build weapons i didnt like
and then spend the time building a platform to put them on, 
considering i didnt like hovers either

was a waste of my time.

but i did it anyway. because it was suggested  i do so.

my thinking was i could have been sat in a clan while i was building.

it wouldve made my life a lot easier.

i felt like i had been led down a path that i would not have chosen

maybe a dead end.

but i learned a couple of things,
and knowledge is priceless so i'm not bothered

since then, i have kinda gotten into it,
probably because i spent so much time building the damn thing!

i also created a control system for my controller

i have been out doing missions in it.

i have had games where i do quite well, if theres no lag.

and thats the thing i cant get past atm.

i've been tethered through my phone for what seems like months now.

the lag is so bad i cant control the movement of anything,
i cant roll forwards, stop, fire and roll back because
i cant predict where i will stop, or in hover, how much i rotate left and right.

sometimes i watch myself being smashed off of a wall like its some kinda comedy loop!

tomorrow they say i will get my broadband back.

another update.
i am lag free!

also, after deliberately going into matches with an underpowered build

(i had to stick a rift on, and put 15 radios on it in order to boost up my power score, just to get into your matches)

and knowing i was gong to get killed a lot

i went in time after time learning a bit as i went.

and ive now built something that kills you. i dont care who you are, or what clan you are with,

i am now getting top or near top score on my team quite often in missions at whatever powerscore you like

without relics or fused weapons.

i'm happier now.

i dont care, what weapons you have.

see you out there

my first ten missions back at 9k.

9/10 wins MVP in 7.

i did of course take a screenshot. if i could work out how to get it here, itd look nicer.

at the highest powerscore missions, 

after i have been seal clubbed, 

i have actually recieved messages saying i'm a bad player.

one said that i'm 'oblivious to how bad i am'

cheers!


i did actually join a clan last night.

i was there for about ooooh....   half hour.

it was that bad, i dont even remember the name, and wouldnt remember it if it was on a list in front of me.

i did think it was odd, 

i'd had a few crappy games while i was testing a hurricane build

and after that game, i got an invite.

i was getting concerned when no one had invited me to a party.

the match was about to start

they didnt 'do' comms, but after the first loss they said we could be in a party if i'd like.

i thought it would help with co ordination etc.

the clan leader was in a fast light build, everyone else in slow builds

he pointed out to watch for a specific enemy, which i noted.

the next thing i know, the leader had attempted to engage all four of the enemy team on his own, 

and i can hear him telling us that the guy he told us to watch out for, 

was stripping his weapons, and when he died a couple of seconds later 

i heard him throw a tantrum and storm out of the room he was in.


well, it was nice meeting them, whoever they were.

no, ive changed my mind a bit since then, 

i'm happy with the way things are coming along

ive had to raise my game considerably since the first post.

loving my hovers now.

movement is the key

i'm pulling off quite complex moves now without thinking about it.


you're right, it is kinda like a diary though!

soooo, i have found something.

a flaw in my process that requires fixing.

this post will help me to fix it.

most of my attacking is face on.

however

my platform, and the gun camera, are two different things

if when attacking, 

i need to move

i must shift out of weapon cam focus

and re orientate myself with the platform, BEFORE  ATTEMPTING TO MOVE. 

the platform drifts, it rotates but my scope stays steady

The direction i was facing before i started attacking

may not be the same direction i'm facing when i have to move.

an adjustment may be required.

LOOK FIRST,          then move.

you dont even need to correct anything if you have drifted.

its just about knowing which direction to move in

in order to get out if the way.

you know what bites a bit, is that i'm playing against high PS people and pretty much all i have is three whirlwinds, and two quazar things.

its hard but i do alright, but with the market the way it is, if i wanted to try something new, i have to be very careful

i'm at that point where a mistake could wipe out all my assets.

after years of playing.

that makes me sick.

i'm playing against people who get  my entire value of assets every two weeks.

 

it'll be that fact that stops me playing altogether.

i cannot compete nor do i have the means to compete

who fights a battle, once they know they cannot win?

How do you just have that after years of playing? Did you sale it all? 

You should have all the factions maxed out by now right? So you have almost all the parts? I put two little boys on a Spider build from exhibition at a little over 9k and can do some damage. Make your rides around 8k to see how you do.

i was at 9k. i had no problems. i was mvp about half of my matches.

ive bought and sold a few times trying to find something that i can use against top tier opposition.

do that a few times and the assets total diminishes.

so i'm down to two platforms and two sets of weaponary.

its a good job i like those quazars.

 

i'm not interested in 9k games any more. 

ive raised my game to a much higher level

dont get me wrong, i have had a few offers to join clans,

and its a shame the one made in this thread didnt go anywhere

but still, 

the more of you i kill

the more often i'm seen at the top of the leaderboard

the more likely it is that a decent clan will invite me.

 

only one i really want to join though.

I too play higher ps now there’s so many drones lower down which is a shame the game changed with those grenade wheel bots. I like to run a double cyclone with aurora, two thermostable purple rads on a hauler spider cab that does well. 

The weapons in your clip are pulsars not quasars btw.

Good choice too... some of the most fun you can have in the game... if you put them on hovers that is, don't know why anyone would run them on anything else. Hold onto them, .5 second added to reload isn't anything due to kapcans.

yeah, pulsars. knew it was something like that!

actually, speaking of 9k builds, here she is, or was. 

i called it apex.

https://xboxclips.com/WlLL0W/17b8989d-26aa-4694-97fd-f9a6be5a859d

it was actually a massive culture shock for me, i was a seal clubber at 9k.

having my harris so very roundly served to me on a plate, at top tier

was not something i had envisaged.

 

whirlwinds are far better than crickets.

okay, so imagine one day that you kill a player who up till that point had been unkillable.

then, the day after you kill him two more times.

then everyone starts dropping.

i'd changed my build from medium/long to close/medium

getting braver innit.

we ended up running a few missions. 12 matches 11 wins MVP's  the works.

i was observant. probably more so in those matches than at any point before.

PROPER TEAM PLAYER.

carried on the next day playing in a squad with quite a few other very good players as well.

by that point though i feel like i'm losing it.

i was able to achieve in patches, a form i could easily maintain when i started 

dont get me wrong, there were moments of brilliance!, the rest was well below par.

it is hardcore. often, i dont blink. i think thats a hover thing though.

i have become more aware of my mistakes..

thats a good thing..

i do believe, that above a certain level, it is wise to assume that everyone, 

is a very good player, each one capable of killing the other

and that battles are won and lost on the mistakes people make.

everybody makes mistakes.

they become separated from the team, or they get distracted.

there's always a way in

the war continues.

What’s your close/medium weapon setup then ?

this game is funny some days builds just pop when you hit them and then other days it’s like shooting carbonite. There are some theories that playing a new or long since used build yields better results for a while.
