You guys forced me into an MCB game with Vihor, I lost 🙁
Ive been in a few of those games too, dont recall ever winning any 🙂 I had the honor of playing MCB with hwb and vihor a couple weeks ago. I’ll let you guess how that went (it was fun though).
hey hey hey, i have to say, …
that after playing like 4 games in a row against Vihor, one on one, i actually won 1…yep, i have the screenshot, as soon as i get my pc back i’ll post it here… 😀 *cough* i don’t remember if it was mcb though 😛 *cough*
btw, i would leave the classic weapons as they are, it’s a well rounded situation, and i see napalm being used sometimes, killing first shot, and then e1 in the game starting to use it…
it’s all modeled by experience, moving the buying window out of the way, looking at the map, and buying the right things… maybe we should have a key “X” to hide/show the buying window… with a little icon at the top saying: buying window hidden, press X to restore it.
Alas, the funky debate starts again. *good times* 😆
Funky bombs are more known vs Sandhogs (ANY SANDHOG) because in the past Sandhogs were horrible, and have a freak chance of entirely missing. Funky is visible, has good 2 kill rating, and can be a guarantied kill regardless of conditions if it lands correctly.
Sandhogs are more rewarding then Funky Bombs. YES ITS TRUE. Funky bombs have a arms level of 3 while the regular sandhog has a level of 5, and a baby hog has a level of 8.
Funky bombs come in a bundle of 2 for approx 18,000. Or 9,000 a piece. Regular sandhog is 5 for 30,000. Or 6,000 a piece. Baby sandhog is 7 for 20,000 .. or about 2,900 a piece.
Funky bombs are really not the threat, as much that Sandhogs are. Hogs have the inept ability to kill someone by traveling through dirt in a direct homing path (much like a laser) while a funky bomb needs to arch its bombs and can be neutralized by any terrain in the way.
True the same complaint can be made about diggers, but its really the targets fault to not carry parachutes. That same logic cannot be applied to sandhogs.
One other thing I wanna mention is rollers. Baby Rollers. Unshielded, and a direct collision, one sphere (it releases 8)… anyone but me think thats a little overkill? I mean I’d respect if it took 2 sphere’s to kill but.. it only takes 1 direct contact.
