I think I begged for polka-dots for a year. Maybe longer. Thanks, Devs.
It’s a drone-boat that sports a combo of an Anaconda, Grenadier, and a Fuze. I like the flexibility and strategies that offers, but mostly, I like the polka-dots. I’ve got another that’s set up the same way, but this one works better, I think. I’m currently running tests on that, to find out for sure.
This one was tearing up hovers last night, and I was surprised at how well it did for me…I’m certain it was just matchmaker magic, but whatever. I needed a shotgun build for dailies , so I put one together. I don’t like running shotguns because it doubles the active-melee population in my matches, and it was indeed pretty bad, but it was more fun than I expected. I’ll keep it around for Dailies, but I get sick of active-melee pretty fast, so it’ll never be one of my favorites on the roster.
Do you consider my builds to be “Seal Clubs?” I think the matchmaker does sometimes, but I don’t. I do use some of your min-maxer advice to make them work, like fusing for power, and occasionally I hide some spaced armor in there, but my results are never chart shattering. I don’t usually go far enough into the min-maxing thing to be that brutal, but I do have to use a combination of those kind of build techniques and low power-scores to get these things to work at all.
If I can get two or three kills in a PVP match, I’m happy. If I get more than that, I’ll just build something prettier. In my mind a high kill ratio is a sign that I can make the car sillier. I don’t like getting pwnd all the time, but I have no ambitions to be king of the hill.
I’m here to build art that kills for my own personal amusement, and I hope I’m not ruining somebody else’s fun by trolling aces with an unfair advantage. I like the hot-rods and rat rods, and all that post-apocalyptic grunge and glamour this game has to offer. I like the immersion and atmosphere of their universe, but I have no interest in pwng aces just for the feel of my boot on their throat. It’s not my intention.
