Style of gameplay
I recently watched some old vids i recorded long time ago (mid of 2012) and I noticed that the way the people play has changed.
Full teams on both sides and only a little to noone uses spamweapons like the TD or WD.
This thread is not about complaining (cause this would be pointless).
Im just curious: What changed?

Is it the responsibility of us "veterans" who have some kind of role model? Almost everytime I play this game (no matter which mod I play) I see jetpackin TDspamers.
So do the new players just copy what they see?
It would be a shame to this beatiful game, if it dies because of this...
I see so many people ragequitting because they are spamed and i can understand them.
Its very annoying and imo not a gentleman's style of playin.
Its okay to master that weapon or even rainbow it, but after that you should say: "okay, thats it!" and place it in the corner where it can rust in peace.

Again: this is NOT about complaining, im just curious about your opinion!



excuse my imperfect english...

I think one of the big advantages of this game are the big possibilitys of customising your loadouts.
I try to show the newer players that u can be quite good without spammin or usin try-hard loadouts. I use the "worse" variant of a weapon type (Chaperone instead of Persuader, Desperado instead of Gatekeeper) and i have fun playin with it. And thats whats it all about!

I think we high-lvl players have to be an example for the noobs (new players without experience!). When they see us only playin cheap loadouts they will think:"Hey! thats how to be a good player! i will do that too!"

So funny how Dentist always left after 4 kills :) I really enjoy his ragequitting

i mainly see burly jetpackers with rocket launchers and mighty divebombers with jackhammers... pretty boring if you ask me - then again airspace denier usually gets them to rage quit. people also slate me for sniping, but barely anyone snipes at all. Plus hard target is useful and don't know many people who use it - less damage from headshots - yes please!

not to forget i do see many a folk who skate around using a katana - Such skill ;D

P.S. desperado is ace!

But WHY are these people playin like this?!
First of all i think you are right: its boring!
I stand (or fly) somewhere on the map and hold the right mouse button... HOW EXCITING!!!
So why are the playin like this?
imo one of those "highlevel superheros (that cant be beaten)" started to exploit broken (or callow) gamemechanics. I know, its a different discussion if the WD, Jetpack and TD (with missiles NOT rockets!) are OP/broken/cheap, but i think they changed a lot!

Ehh i was writing longer post about my thinkings here, but my pc rebooted, so i will get to the point: newbies usually think, that the only way of winning is mighty, launcher, WD and Jetpack/dive.

How wrong it is, we all know (Mis you play speedy) - usually ends in ragequits, cheat accusation instead rethinking, that something is wrong with them, not players that kill them off.

i notcied a lot of power gamers right after the game went free to play, but i noticed that it nthe last few months things have settled down, don't know why thats just my observation

I try to play solo as much as possible, rarely ill join other people when they invite me. I leave if the teams are super stacked. I never used rockets or WD outside of getting them golded. Some people are just scrubs and need big crutches.

I had a few matches yesterday where I was thinking: "Just like the old days!"
Then a more experienced player (who CAN be realy awesome if he wants to!) joined and started TD-jetpacking... it all ended in a pure armageddon of bright colours, explosions and ragequiting players, cause EVERYONE started to spam (imo some act of defiance)... people on both sides quit, new players came and quit again because of this massive spam. I never saw this much different players in 1 match...
this style of gameplay ruins this game for most of us (not for all). I know that many of you dont share my opinion but you have to admit that it is at least very annoying!

To come back to the maintopic:
You agree with me that this change in the style of gameplay results in a mix of desperate new players, that dont know how to react against "better" players, and a few trolling "vets"?!
(maybe its monolths fault to add those weapons! XD)

btw: thanks for your replys!

I'm guessing you mean ANKER? He isn't good at all, 99% of his kills are from TD. Look at his incredibly low headshot count
[SW] Misantroph Jan 26 @ 12:56am 
Never played against ANKER, so i dont know if hes good or not. Was talking about a guy named Abraham. I saw him a few times before and he fought quite well.
Sir_Noob Jan 26 @ 2:56am 
Abraham is also almost completely rocket kills, Ive never seen him with anything else.
[SW] Misantroph Jan 26 @ 3:13am 
He used (the typical) burly, buccaneer, persuader, glider rig loadout. The last matches only TD and Jetpack...
kondex [PL] Jan 26 @ 10:43am 
Low headshot count doesn't tell if someone is Thunder Dragon ♥♥♥♥♥ or not :) I have it very low, yet i have almost never used TD/WD, but yes, Abraham is a crazy rocket killer.
