i dont see any other way around it.

Recommended Posts

slightly separate...

not sure i like the effects of the new update.

we used to get scrap metal, AND a part.

now i have to use the scrap, to make the part.

worse still

how much was a self righting thing?

nothing almost. now its probably 4-5 gold worth of scrap to make.

ive stopped making things, ive stopped selling stuff

my market activity has ceased. no money, nothing to sell.

mind you doing scrap missions when one has already reached ones cap doesnt help.

i dont even get fuel any more.

(last thing you need on a hover..... two exploding boxes)

i am in a much worse position than i was.

so far, 4 notable clans have invited me.

like, in the top 60 regular.

they may as well be four random names.

its strange.

ive been knocking my pipe out to get noticed and invited to a clan

and when it happens i feel absolutely nothing.

also, it looks like the good player i ran with is back his clan

cool while it lasted

we move forward.

I argued on another thread that someone's going to have to foot the bill initially for resource changes but they didn't listen. They can't seperate this game from reality and they argue economics from a perspective of some fantasy land in game. The real life economic (time/money) impact is what's affecting the game... not the in game economy. The illusion of a player controlled market is better than an actual player controlled market. Fix your game devs... we don't mind pretending. We are in fact playing a make believe video game.

i did try to explain how there was another economy involving real life money, 

affecting decisions in game, but i may as well have farted in a hurricane.

they are becoming conditioned. the internet world gives them so much escape

that the real world has become less preferable.

most of em are gone.

in other news, this continues to p ss me off.

https://xboxclips.com/WlLL0W/ce543617-11e5-4fa8-9370-a99086372758

another match, fortress i'm at the back of the cap point, and 5 of my team are about 300m in front of me. three bots targeted me.

as i remember it, i might have been mvp with 2 kills when i was just a few floating parts!.

i should have the vid for that. its the kinda thing i'd save.

i'll have a ferret around

on a.... completely different theme for a moment, 

i realised i could link to any..... of my xbox vids,

so i am going to post about another experience altogether.

Sekiro.

jeez, as i typed that word i started to cry.

i have never in all my years of gaming ever.....

encountered a game like that. it certainly is a one off.

its hard. i say the hardest game you could ever play.

to go into it cold, it will.... humble you.

and as you get into it, it will punish you for your mistakes

and it will bring you to tears at the end.

because what it demands from you in order to get to that point

is a level of discipline and control unlike anything  ive ever known

and a sense of timing that i never thought i would be capable of.

every move measured, pure instinct and two layers of swordplay

attack and block.

 

the boss's were awesome and some of the mini boss's as well

this was me cheesing the bejesus out of the corrupted monk.

this is the cheese so if you think this is easy, be my guest

show me your vid.

at this point i should say that its been a privilege to run so many missions with  the chaps at the NUMBER ONE SQUAD,  DAMNation.

nothing was arranged (as far as i know at least) when they were the opposition, i tried to kill them,

and when they were on my side, i played a supporting role. 

turns out that supporting the main bods actually opens doors for you.

i ended up getting mission invites.

i learned soooooo much. still am.

like my most effective builds  

it also makes a massive difference to have a very very good set of team mates

it makes it easy for someone with my play style to take full advantage

the enemy focus on my team mates and i rail in from the side.

i was by no means carried...... much....

( i love the light platform i use, but it does break easily)


there is a truth there though
 

i'm kinda like a barracuda, supporting sharks.

everyone needs to be a shark at the highest level.

thats why if you play cannons, you need typhoons

on a heavy durable well armoured platform

and if you're a sniper, medium to long range player, like me, 

you need a set of skorpions.  more choices for the platform though.

at shark level.

would i be a shark if i had a set of skorpions?

probably

still get rushed by sparkvesters

i am moving towards picking a clan.

i dont feel any shame in saying, 

i am not quite at the required level to be in the number one team!!.

really nice to get along with them though

so, as i said in an earlier post, 

my strongest buld.

from where i was at 9k, there is no way i could have laboured over, and come up with some of the designs on the exhibition

ive used two, you probably know which ones, 

a 9 hover heavy build by a guy called 'product design' 

and what has ended up as a kinda generic lightweight cricket hover,

both of which were modified  to suit.

though product designs build really is impressive,

its not the most mobile of platform, so i didnt use it much.

the light weight one though....

but as also stated earlier its very weak. its kinda designed to be that way

and it just wasnt enough.

so i modified it

it now has  two spaced layers of heavy duty armour, and then in front of that, another spaced medium layer at the front

this of course needed an extra pair of hovers at the front

but now the build has over 2000 hit durability point health bar whatever it is.

yeah, its a bit slower, nut nowhere near as slow as product designs

it feels natural, weight wise

and another vid of the new revised build

https://xboxclips.com/WlLL0W/d96ece5e-81ca-4a25-8f64-48b7b4fd767b

of course, ive already revised the new build. twice.

the first revision was to deal with the consequence of losing two hovers at the front

and being anchored to the spot.  that was an 'oh yeah' moment.

the solution was simple

all i had to do was sell everything again, in order to buy a now 800 gold rift.

and attach if to the front of the first heavy layer

and then move ALL the other pieces forward one square as well so that if i do lose two hovers,

the whole front will come off with the rift, while leaving the first heavy layer in place, restoring balance and joy to the world.

the second mod was to make it all light weight, for the pulsars and that cabin i cant be ars d to remember the name of.

this of course means all my other builds, i have 9 spaces, will also have to be changed as well.but, 

i now have light and heavy variants with multiple layers of spaced armour.

i did not know that bots will prioritize enemy hovers..

i was told this, and i believe it without any need for any further investigation.

shocking, 

ive been getting rushed by em, ive had em pop out of stealth nest to me, hit me with cannons from miles away.

lol

i mean imagine covering your team mates as the bots rush in, and they drive straight past the front line towards me.

and now i see it in every game.

 

at least now i know.


and then, well, someone from a clan who invited me, was on the other team. first time i'd seen him out with a couple of skorpions as it goes.

 (as an aside, one thing i might have misjudged is killing people on my friends list. perhaps going for others first is the done thing)

anyway is been a confusing few days and so we end up where we are.

confidence is rising though, i am now able to successfully take the p ss out of bods with skorpions

its been an interesting night.

ive decided to switch to a build that probably enjoy the most.

the whirlwind is one of my all time favourite weapons.

so two of those, doppler, stealth, cheeta, purple cooler and rad, neutrino.

medium to long range player.

i can do a lot with em.

i can pop people from across the map, 

https://xboxclips.com/WlLL0W/8ac7ae66-a759-4c84-9841-9200d70ac58f

twas a good match that. went on to get flawless MVP.

https://xboxclips.com/WlLL0W/203e8a48-99dd-4091-a794-695351351d63

love my whirlwinds

i can force players out of engagement and into cover

and keep them there. you will die, if you stay in the open.

they are very good for disrupting enemy battle patterns.

forcing them into plan B

they dont have much close range damage 

but thats not important because what i'm doing

is all about close range manoeuvring,

and when i use whirlwinds i get rushed a lot.

not that i really need to encourage it.

however, 

today i managed to shake off two...... count em, 2..... cheesy dirty, erm... players

by moving around them. its weird but if you can hold off a sparkverster for a few seconds,

and make any kind of distance away from it, and then do the same when he comes at you again

the likelyhood is that the driver will disengage

no idea how i did it. but i know that that it can be done.

so i have a couple of vides of the new setup.

once again blessed to be running with quality.

first match i killed four Hit Shadow killed three, 

https://xboxclips.com/WlLL0W/89c364a0-d1cb-4285-9f7c-eb8abd49f305

and the second match, he killed four. and i killed four getting MVP.

i do like it when that happens. two of us kill the entire team.

not the first time its happened, and not just with Hit Shadow.

shout going out to Regan Mack!

i have been enjoying shooting that ball out of the map with a couple of tsunami's

this game does not have swerve mechanics.

the ball disappears if you get it on the target above your garage door.

i bang on about them quite a lot, but, i do love my whirlwinds.

https://xboxclips.com/WlLL0W/55fae22a-58b7-4631-a8cb-78fd08601687,

i got another clan invite after this match.

and this one where i got a kill that i liked.

as it happens, i got more than one

https://xboxclips.com/WlLL0W/3a0628e4-9db7-4a00-a823-ab037b43df9d

i might actually go back to crickets again.

i have gotten better at piloting since i used em last time.


on balance though, 

a comparison between triple cricket / triple whirlwind

for me, triple whirlwind beats triple cricket in every single respect

other than

close range burst damage.

but with a fused purple rad and a favourite, 

i will go full auto at close range with the whirlwinds.

 


after playing the pulsars i noted the lack of recoil with energy weapons.

especially useful on a platform that tends to drift when firing.

conversely, i wondered about using  three arbiters as a kind of reverse thrust?.....

not immediate enough.

from this point i am limiting the information i share.

i'll still post but, not details about builds

or things i learn which i dont see anyone else doing.

i'll stick vids up.

vids do my talking for me.

i'm getting invites the job is nearly done anyway

i'm more annoyed by bots than bods with relics!
