New player here, although not new to artillery games or stuff like the original Scorched Earth, Warheads SE, Pocket Tanks, Leiro, etc. 🙂
Played offline for serveral years off and on, and had my second online session last night, had fun, got blown up, etc. Won my first overall online game finally in Beginners, so I’m pretty content. Now, I need to practice and get into the real servers. It’s lots tougher with the time/money limits and such than it is offline.
About the username/avatar: QuadShotz is an old BBS nick and gaming handle from like a million years ago, a combo of Quad-Damage from Quake2 and my love of Quad lattes.
The flaming pepper? Well, I’m also a bigtime Chilehead… 😈
Heh, that’s funny because I did, and he dug the game too…then a few days later he sold his PC…. #-o
Dumb question; I haven’t yet found anyone online in Main to play, although I popped in once. Now it says I’m ranked 27th in Main?? That makes no sense since I didn’t even play anyone. I’m like 40-somthing rank in Beg Serv, so the higher rank must be some kind of starting ground for Main, eh?
Oh, I found out yer supposed to kill bots first..but it seems that isn’t really adhered to…so how can it be a “policy”?
I mean, so I was playing in BegServ…one of the high-ranked peeps spawned right behind me…I coulda taken him out, but there was a bot also in front of me, so I took that shot. Next shot up, the Vet dude kills me. Whaaat?
Just trying to grok the unwritten rules…all games have them. 😉
