    Yup - main reason why Oppressa switched :p

    Edit: Interesting thread over on bittah - rule proposal by Dose to make the game more fun - https://bittah.com/viewtopic.php?f=95&t=21061

    Guys - what do you think of this idea - http://forum.hirezstudios.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=337&t=107554 ?

    If we had server splitting 'on', we could have more servers going at the same time. Maybe not at the 14vs14 level, but few maps are made for those numbers anyways.

    Just tired of being in a queue to get access to a server with a few peeps on it.

    Thoughts?

    lol :D I seem to suck at hitting people, but hitting shrikes is kinda fine. Got my second shrike with a mortar the other day :leet:
    New maps (a sandy Belle Omega, amongst others), shielded base turrets, and lower population. Fractals, smg's, and snipers still rule the game. But its still fun, as long as you don't take pubs too seriously :thumbup:

    Re: smg's - begun fielding the gast against whitewhale et. al. in juggy outfits when they occupy a hill. Gast seems to do ok against the X1's. Feel dirty doing it though as I really prefer the 'grace' of the spinfusor - but not sure on any other tactics.

    Use Frag XLs and learn exactly how it bounces and how to place it, if you throw a pair right, they will have no choice but to either cop dmg from one, or fly up making a nice easy AR target

    Imo, pref the AR over the gast as its only 1 extra bullet to kill a PF, but you get 4 more shots in the clip, and higher ammo count overall

    Really no other option against those X1 juggies (since moving and having reliable 8ping) id be around 80% win against WW level juggies as SLD, its just the best class to do it, rdr tends to always cop a thrown disk unless you backpeddle constantly and as doom you cop 90% of the X1 cause you are too fat

    do tend to have a lot of fun with the poor aim/disk mode juggies using nova blaster for lols tho

    Been enjoying T:A most evenings mightily lately, even with the really annoying issues:

    1) Warping: jumping unexpectedly fair distances all over the place, intermittently (really, really annoying), and
    2) Deploy bugs: cannot deploy a selected turret or shield every now and then, only fixable by an Inventory Station replenishment or death. Also character sometimes gets stuck after deploying something unable to wield any weapon.
    3) Aussie servers operating poorly & crashing too often.

    Regardless, been getting in on some real fun pub CTF games, and great to see the likes of Opressa, RnR, Wrekin, Whitewhale etc. on a fair bit causing much mayhem.

    Hopefully some forthcoming series of patches will go a long way to improving the above issues, but have been enjoying it lots anyway.

    Can't tell from the description alone but I often get dry fire on all weapons as a glitch sometimes, where I have to perform a melee attack before it resets to normal use :tired:
