Re: What are U best at?What's your skill that makes you special?

I'm great at shooting sprays of difficult shots that kill someone, then sit amazed that I made the shot, while my own bullet comes back and hits me ;)

Re: How Do you Dodge GM Bullets?

Basically, try to drive perpendicular to the GM. When it starts to turn, turn with it so you are still driving perpendicular. You will need to continue this (basically driving in a circle) until the GM hits the ground next to you. Watch for walls; if you get blocked from continuing and the missile s...

Re: what flag do you pwn with?

Depending on the map, ST, WG, or GM. I hate laser when I'm up against it because there's nothing you can do to dodge it, but I'm pretty good when I have it. I hate sitting and sniping, but on Castle Warfare I like to go under the enemy base and kill everyone coming down. Can rack up lots of easy poi...

I thought the same thing at first that Bambino said. So I went into an empty map with a friend and he did it and I did it....and it is quite useful in Rabbit games where like I said...he (or she, since I'm a she) thinks he got you and moves on to the next hunter. Then you've got him (or her)... ha....

Re: Dodging GM's while in the air

...Usually, there isn't a good way of dodging a GM, except with a building, because a lot of people (myself included) fire a spray of GMs when the person is perpendicular to the person with GM. When parallel, you can usually kill someone with one shot. I disagree. As long as the shot speed on the s...

Re: Beginner tips?

If you're playing on a map with superflags, learn to dodge GM's (adjust your course to travel perpendicular to them, thus making part of a circle as it approaches you). This can save you lots of lives, as well as really annoy the person trying to shoot you, which is fun :D. Note that on some servers...

Re: GM locking on

press your defined identify key when looking at the person. It usually locks on to the closest person that's in front of you. Especially if it's a teammate ;) Yeah, this gets really annoying. Especially when you jump in the air to get a better shot at someone and then your GM heads halfway across t...

Re: Dodging GM's while in the air

If you have good aim, and you see the GM before it fires or they have limited shots and you dodge their first ones, this is a fairly reliable approach, assuming you're confident that you can score a hit, as GM's lose their lock when the shooter dies. Thus you can kill it and then jump and it will go...

Re: Specific OO flag question.

You can't shoot, back up, or jump while sealed. If the OO user is sticking out even a millimeter, you can usually shoot him normally. Also, if there's a geno flag on the map, that would obviously work :).

Other than that, the only thing is SB or SW.

Re: Dodging GM's while in the air

I don't see why jerking backwards and forwards would do anything. You're just racing against the GM's turn rate; it has instantaneous reaction time. The best way to to dodge is to be moving at maximum speed (forward) at an angle as close to 90 degrees to the path of the GM as possible. Well, it see...

Dodging GM's while in the air

I have learned how to dodge GM's while on the ground--my biggest problem is while I'm in the air. Recently I've seen several people with Wings give a funny little twitch and get away from missiles that were about to hit them.

Anyone know anything about this?

Re: flags and tactical capabilities

There is at least one server in which the geno flag works in reverse, i.e. if someone of the blue team hits a green team member with geno, the entire green team dies. How is that in reverse? Isn't that how geno usually works? It Isn't real clear, but the person with geno is the green team in the ex...

Re: Voting

You can use name completion by pressing the F2 key (assuming you don't have it mapped to another function). So, you can type "/poll ban q03" and hit F2, and it will complete the name out automatically, and even include quotes if they have spaces in their name. It's not perfect, but it can save some...

My friend 'Flametux' who introduced me to the game. He practically never plays, though, and the one time we played each other one-on-one it was sad. I think I capped his flag about 10 times in fifteen minutes.

That works quite well. Only one problem: There don't seem to be textures for the team flags. How could I change those--or are those in a different spot?
