Life on the Farm


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Quite possibly the worst thing I've ever built. This thing is so bad on so many different levels...It's not like switching the wheels out or even changing cabs would help. It's just terrible. I'm not even getting scrap. Zero rewards, over, and over. Just awful. I've never had anything perform this bad. The Auto-build feature makes more successful builds. It's just...wow.

I recall now why I gave up on the Phoenix. Basically matches go like this; I find a perch, I make one shot, and then I get ambushed.

It's got a cloak, but it doesn't help much. Those things are heavy and even though it's not over weight, it really isn't fast enough to escape the angry mobs, greatly insulted by the audacity of this abomination's offensive presence. The phoenix rotates way too slow to defend against any kind of rush, and that's what they do. They rush it, and it's over.

I'm guessing they might make a decent seal club? IDK. This is pretty bad. I'm guessing the price isn't going to go anywhere but down on these things. I'm not really into seal clubs, so I don't suppose I can do anything with these but accept the burn on the market and taxes. I'll screw around with them  a bit more because it's still early in this project, but man...I don't have high hopes for these.

Ya, thanks, bro. It needed a lot more META. Very underwhelmed with those things.

I sold the bows. I hope I can remember not to do that again. I actually didn't get screwed on anything over the taxes with selling them. I think I dodged a bullet. I am getting screwed at the market on my carapace, but I'm OK with that at this point. It was useless, and I'm ready to move on.

When it comes to raids, which I like (usually), I like to get immersive. It's more of an arcade style gig and I like to have a fantastical rig to roll through it with. This is where I usually sport my funnest and most disposable builds. I like the escort style raids and I often build a rig that looks suited for that task, usually a flat-bed truck with lots of blinking, flashing,  caution lights. I have two raids to complete on my dailies, and so I put this one together. I'll probably take it out at least once in missions before I toss it, just for kicks.

I like the Bear. It's a good Blue cab, I think.

The hit boxes on machine guns stink to high-heaven, though.

I felt inspired by the Rebuild Contest, so I built this. It's not really within the guidelines for the contest, but I might build one later that's a bit closer.

So, here's today's first build. It's a little rough to pick up wins with it, but it can be done...wasn't really the point of the build, anyway. I think tricking me into buying a Jockey was the real point of the contest, but I couldn't, because the market is screwed up, and wouldn't even let me give the asking price. I wish they'd fix that...They probably wish we'd stop hacking it,  so it is what it is.

They did encourage me to buy some fresh wheels, though.

In my eyes thats somethin i'd see if Crossout hit us in real life.  We have ton of green forest logging harvesters n John Deeres, and big rigs hauling timber, plus every second local car is lifted pickup truck used for huntin, farmin etc and equipped to it. Mixin these would maybe result as the ride in your pic easily.

It's usually overcast at my farm, but today I noticed how pretty it is at dawn. I usually crop my pictures, but I really like the Farm, so I'm leaving this one large.

I miss the old garage now and then, and I wish I could visit there again sometimes, but the Farm...I know this game can be a 817CH sometimes, but it sure is good looking. I think the work they put into the aesthetics on this game over the last year or so has been incredible, and I think it goes underappreciated a little...on the other hand I do see some pretty cool builds out there sometimes, and I know I'm not the only one who is enjoying the effort the developers have put into creating a very stylish Armageddon.

So, thanks Devs. Good luck next dawn.

I built this one mostly for fun, and it is. The word on the street is that the Battle Pass is only a few hours away, so I'm just tinkering, biding my time until the storm hits.

I had in mind to build a land-ship inspired by the Guiding Star theme, and I still might do something more towards that idea, but this came out, and I liked it. I took it out once and it did surprisingly well.I was glad it did, because I like it and I spent all my coin on it.

My Daughter calls this cab the "Smactor Tractor." Some people play slug-bug. We live in the sticks, so we play "Smactor Tractor."

Anyway...

It's fun. I like the Grenade-Launchers, and the cab's perk helps keep the blow-back off so I can get up close if I want. So far, I haven't had to, but I've only taken it out once. I'd like to hang on to this one for a while. I've seen Meat-Grinders make a pretty good complement to this cab, but I don't have any...I like the hubcaps, though.

...upgraded it with a dash of META and pompous. I think I like the land-ship motif.  I'll need a harpoon.

Well, things have not gone the way I had hoped. I had planned on buying the Battle pass and enjoying my favorite game, but wow. It really 5UX. Same map over and over. Same Wedges over and over. It's just not fun anymore. What happened? IDK, but I'm tired of it. It's time to take some time off and maybe they'll get things back in order again. It was fun before the update. I don't think it is anymore. I have a fancy account over at Skyrim Online that I never play, so I guess I'll try that for a while.

This did not go how I planned at all. Instead of getting the Battle Pass, I've uninstalled the game. It bums me out a good bit, but not as much as playing this game has been lately.

...oh crap...I entered a contest that I'm likely to win due to lack of participation (I'm not at all the only guy sick of this game). I suppose I'll have to reinstall to collect that reward (supposing I win). Maybe it'll be more fun then? It's just coins and a surprise box...

This game usually goes through phases, so I'm hoping it gets better eventually, but I'm not going to endure the way it is presently. PVP is a miserable, boring, META-disaster...until then...see ya around, kids.

Well, it turns out I did win, but they still haven't released the rewards for it. I see there's a new rebuild contest now, so I'm wondering WTF happened with the last one.

Hope you get your legally won prize. You did not try and participate in vain.
