Good game but you were running the best counter possible to beat a melee team, i would like to see some good clips against an all cannon team, do you have any?

i'll have a look. i'm sure i do, i can see one in my minds eye, but i might have posted it already.

anyway, truthfully, we dont worry about cannons, unless its a very good team with typhoons.

even then, i wait until an enemy is already engaged, or has just fired a shot or i circle strafe from range.

the only time i'm in trouble is when two or more focus me, in which case i try to keep them distracted.

 

in fact, i remember a vid from the other day. god i hope i recorded it

it was a match after i did badly with scorpions where i got 3.5k again

with two cyclones against a good team with cannons.

IT"S NOT THERE 

 

these though i have already posted

i'm pretty much using nothing but cyclones atm, so there will be another vid soon.

3 cyclones 1 purple rad and a keen

2 cyclones, a neutrino 2.... radiators, a keen, an oculus and stealth.

strong arguments could be made either way.

I have my CB spider Scorpion in the exhibition, it's the chrome and pink one a few pages back when searching from time listed. 

I can post my hover build if interested, but it would be crazy expensive to build. It's sideways with 10 blue hovers, lambo hauler, covered with radars and all of it is fused except for the epic radars. 

first game with it.

https://xboxclips.com/WlLL0W/c226ff4e-b52d-43b2-a7fe-2b70778e6e45

i do like it. 

i can  wriggle free with it

in fact, after a few games with it, 

ive done sort of okay.

thanks.

You are aiming way too high. In general you want to aim through those Bigfoot tires at where the frames would be. The worst thing that happens is that you only take a wheel off, best case is you hit the frame peices that hold their entire vehicle together and nugget them. Remember that you are shooting at 3D objects on a flat 2D screen. Mess around in build mode and make mental notes about the mounting points of movement items where they attach to the frame.  It's going to help you aim through wheels and such and hit critical parts.

Be more aggressive when someone wants to challenge you.  There's a Meat Auger, Train Plow, Hatchets, and Blade Wings mounted on the front. If someone rams you at anything more than a crawl its going to ruin their day, and if they get trapped under it that Auger will chew them up. Make some modifications and add more Blade Wings and the Pipetooth passive melee weapons under the high center point of it. They'll eventually learn that wedging you is worse than sitting in front of your guns.

Keep getting more experience with them and you'll figure what does, or doesn't work. 

Try not to force them to work in your favor. Chill out with some friends and just play the game and have fun. It's hard to use Scorpions when you're all tensed and excited.

i got an offer to join a very respectable clan today.

part of a package deal, me and one other!

well, that was how it started off.

if it would have been a few weeks back i would have been blown away.

and probably bitten the guys arm off to join.

however

the lure was not quite enough

and we both declined for fairly unselfish reasons.

thank you anyway.

i would like to mention a specific clan.

[DEAL]

i dont know why this occurs now but anyway

as previously mentioned

it relates more to the guy who sent me the message.

i will name him

tertian basket.

he did decide to target me a few times

not that i have a problem with that per se, 

but it does take the p ss if we're on the same team. 

however

it was due to Tertian Baskets persistence with a firebug

that i learned how to wriggle free from melee builds

without him, it would never have happened.

and as it happens, 

i have been on friendly terms with all of them for a while now

so i thought i'd give em a mention, 

and a nod in their direction

Wavy Screwball.

if i needed a cyclone player, i would pick him.

everyone has their own experience, i can only reference my own.

i came out of that situation with far more than i had going in, 

so for me, a nod, and a mention, is enough.

we are on friendly terms.

and thats fine by me.

bad night. tried the scorpions first, didnt do well.

then switched to cyclones, 

had three really good games in a row

this was one

first round

https://xboxclips.com/WlLL0W/b81fc9e6-e908-4d99-90f2-1cb39a43acd4

second round

https://xboxclips.com/WlLL0W/0019b7ee-ad4e-4bab-8487-6419411f3004

 

and someone mentioned about a cannon team, 

this is close. 6 cannons, 2 scorpions

i will say that their scorpion player is very good.

https://xboxclips.com/WlLL0W/04cf4ba6-1777-4fd9-b534-086924f6011a


it was a bad night though for me.

i switched when i probably shouldnt have, 

then got killed the same way by the same guy twice.

stealthed his way in and smacked me in the side with cannons.

i was on a hover scorpion.

plus my headset broke

i have another headset though.

its some old wireless 3d astro gaming thing.

i dont use it because i dont have a lead.

not a big thing to solve.

looks like i'll be having an audio upgrade soon.

trying out a new scorpion hover build. exhibition stylee

i saw it and thought, if thats what they are using, 

i'm having it.

modded slightly.

swapped the collosus for a hot rod.

you can still squeeze two shots out with the cabin perk active

and i put a fused doppler in there.

i did get to a point where i thought a keen and an oculus would be enough.

like, i would still have ranged detection

and a third of my behind cover detection, plus the extra's with an oculus.

but, 165 meters really isnt that far

so the doppler will help me to play the map a lot more.

i hope.

i have already made a pulsar build out of it as well.

smiley face.

You should change the name of thread to: Willows Diary

your point has merit.

but it still kind of is, what it started as.

and if i were to change the name, it would be something else.

even though its an ongoing thing that doesnt really have a definable purpose

besides, i'm probably too much on the wrong side of introverted

i dont mind it being about a situation that i was in, 

and it evolved into something else, 

but to have it directly about me?.....

its entirely wrong for my character.

i am nothing.

believe it or not, i had not even played a match.

what with listening to music, and repeatedly cool bathing a ferret, i had not had time.

this was my first game of the day.

i played awfully.

and walked away with possibly my highest ever score, and 6 kills.

i'm going to have a few more goes, and see what happens.

*my second match of the day....

i got stuck in a tree. and committed suicide.

its like the balance has shifted from 40/60 to 60/40 in my favour.

it means that instead of being bottom, or in the bottom half of the scoreboard, 

i have been consistantly top, or in the top half.

not even playing that well.

so, first clan wars with the new build...

first 5 games, 5 wins.

from there i recognised the signs.

flew into a random pulsar and got a weapon took off almost straight after.

then artillery got me.

switch.

also, if i feel i'm playing badly...i will stop playing.

when things are good they are good, but when they are bad, you have to stop.

besides, rating has become more significant, but not for the reward.

that rating represents peoples effort. its not mine to squander.

i was in one clan, where i forget the exact numbers

but it was like they were under 30th

and the least able players carried on playing

and the main bods came back to find they were worse than 50th

can you imagine how that feels?

i would rather be the bloke that stopped than the one who carried on 

loss after loss after loss.

after i took the ferret for a walk, 

i came back played one game with the hover scorpion,

got killed and switched to the triple cyclone.

i noticed something today that i had not seen in a clan match....

lag.

only with two teams. i wont name them.

i should say my connection is sound. 100Mb fiber optic  niceness.

i video'd it. but obviously if i post it you'll know who it was.

i dont know anywhere near enough about networks

but that amount of lag, plus getting d/c'd, just with those teams....

i would be fairly sure that we were not the only ones who had issues.

a plus point was that despite losing smoken in the matrix, 

we managed to fight through the lag and three man a team of four.

a bad night in a number of other respects though.

however, i do not feel, that i played badly.

I also experienced lag and dc in CW today. Was it against fire based teams (porcs and firebugs)?

long time no see!, 

1st team 2x typhoon, 2x cyclone, spark vester, spark draco.

there was a firebug on the second team.

but now i look...

i just checked out that teams position. they are 60th currently

we were much higher, 

so by us losing to them, we got caned for it.

i went from -35 to -122

we are 52nd currently

and i have vids of  games with them where 

we had major lag, and players were d/c'd.

at this point, despite not playing badly

my clans most kinda decent ish 4 players, are at the bottom of our table.

its gonna be a fight today, but what if we meet them again and one loss undoes 5 wins.

thats kinda bollocks.

so at this point we are 30th.

and i am at -1 point.

was there lag?....

there was one disgusting game.

none of us could move.

i will post the video.

https://xboxclips.com/WlLL0W/a1f05074-f63e-4fb9-9078-ed9ecb37a8bc

i dont know if this is a thing that people are actually doing, 

or whether some bod on their team was connecting to the internet through a cow pat...

not nice.

then, in stark contrast

a match against some of my old clan mates.... in new form.

we had to work for this one.

https://xboxclips.com/WlLL0W/4d9aca9a-957c-4971-b9f9-f31b102be041

but in the end. common sense won through, 

and they agreed to leave with a silver medal and some scrap.

shout going out to [FKTE]

its a mixed week again

with an upgrade.

so today, i forget where we were before the session started.

i did get a screenshot shortly after 5pm where 

my clan was top of the board!!.

to be fair, there was only one other clan listed.

anyway, today there were 4 online.

for a little while.

we played [T1TS] and got blitzed

then we played [JOY]

and this happened. 1st round.....................................................................................................................................................................,

https://xboxclips.com/WlLL0W/573d39ab-159f-4206-91d9-d3f80e3ec931

and then the second round.

lost my bearings but when i found em, i fired em at the enemy.

special mention to andybaked, who its always been an absolute pleasure to shoot at.

https://xboxclips.com/WlLL0W/1351babe-6160-4a35-a5fc-eb0f4ed7d63d

also...

i might actually be considering fusing cyclones.

to get three of them, with one specific perk in mind.

its at this point i need access to a test server.
