PVP: I've fallen...and I can't get up...no, wait a minute

PVP; I used to love that crap. For four years (seems like longer), I played almost nothing but PVP and occasionally raids. I was totally hooked. Thanks to Supercharged 2.0, that habit died a brutal and humiliating death.

They nerfed wheels and speed, and anything else I was enjoying in my inventory, like they had a list of what I liked and purposely ruined it (just because I’m pretty)…then they brought us a variety of omnidirectional movement parts and introduced Camera-Controls. I’ve had a bad year in Crossout.

Now…many, many, lifetimes later, lay destroyed, beaten…beaten down. Only the corpses of rebels
ashes of dreams, and blood stained streets…Hella-choppers. I’m hooked again (but not on PVP).

I’m hypnotized by a combination of the nuances of the flight controls, the “plop-plop-plopping” rhythm of grenade launchers contrasted by their devastating explosions, and the new maps…I’ve been at it for days. It’s all I need (and my coffee). Goodbye PVP. It was fun (on and off) while it lasted.

Now, I don’t need or want organic players ruining my mood and chill ambiance with their cheap tactics, copy/paste rocket pigs, and cheese-box melee that look like somebody dumped their legos into a shoe-box and glued them together however they fell, and instead have become a complete Chopper-Patrol junkie. I can’t stop.

I tried to go back, and jumped into a PVP queue last night with some rat-rod, but compared to the Arcadian bliss I’ve been enjoying, flying my good’ol Thug about the new lush landscapes, playing against cheese-free bots, sans homing-missiles, seal clubs, PTW, and all the other buzz-kill schit that live players bring into PVP, it was no contest. Maybe four years of PVP is enough?

In short; I’m glad to be enjoying Crossout again (it’s been a while), but something needs to be done about PVP, IMO. That schit’s awful. Buff wheels, please, and turn up the speed on my Howl and the Call…or not. I don’t care anymore.

Thanks for the choppers and new maps. Lovin’ it.

When you said Choppers, I thought they had added motorcycles. Good post!

Hey Doc, stop crying. You’re bringing the room down. I get it, you’re bad. But it isnt all doom and gloom for those of us with usable flanges and thumbs.

I can’t be that bad if I’m getting MVP with art builds.

was able to try out some game play tonight and I, too, loved the chopper patrols. Degunning bots has never been so smooth and enjoyable.

I think it’s pretty habit forming. Scrounging for copper is suddenly way more interesting.

I want them to make some raids for these things, and I think the maps they used for the Ravagers events would work great. I’d like the theme to mostly stay as well, but I liked the Ravagers. They could do anything with that scenario, I suppose.

I’m sure they’ll change stuff, and soon, but so far, so good, as far as the flying things go. I feel like PVP is currently in a bad place, but the hella-choppers are a blast.
I’ll get the pass, despite myself and my opinions of it. I didn’t want the GL-55s when I bought them, but I can’t keep my hands off them now, so I realize my own opinions aren’t always worth that much. I like to at least keep them a little flexible…$9.99 isn’t that big of a deal. I want the Duck…and I am playing the schit outta their game, so I’m happy to throw my tribute into the hat.

Hell, maybe I will try a little Missile Command with that new cab…in small doses. IDK.

Poony4u is probably right when he says that the game dynamics could change a lot as this BP rolls along. It’s a game changing update with some game changing content, for sure. We’ll see.
