Re: Dodging GM's while in the air

Well a visit back... I recently learned that, that particular friend is a smart #*!...and stood back far enough to yank my chain that you could shoot down GM...as it was meant to time out right in front of me... LOL! He went on how good I was at it... oh man oh man. I fell for it. I admit it! Luckil...

Re: Dodging GM's while in the air

If you are too close to a GM when it is fired, it sometimes goes through you even if the other player got a lock. How close was your friend to you? Of course, it could be possible InfraRed is completely wrong or lying, but just hoping to come up with a logical explanation. Not really sure how close...

Re: Dodging GM's while in the air

Uh, no. Did it time out? Like you were _just_ far enough from the guy that his missile timed out? Thank you Bambino for a possible logical explanation. It happened at least 7 times. Even saw a bot do it on my private server, or thought I did, mind you that bot got shot by it on the second GM missil...

Re: Dodging GM's while in the air

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. ...

Yeah, aim is super important... a fireball missile coming at you...stare it down coming and you and jump to meet it's height... and shoot it down. I find if you've successfully shot it down, the tank that aimed at you usually moved on to another target visually and mentally, and you can then succes...

Re: Why you play BzFlag

I was introduced to BZ Flag about two months ago. Now my Wii is getting dusty. It truly beats my favorite Wii game, Linksys Crossbow training (which is straight shoot at game, all 27 of them). I can't stop, help me, no don't help me... it is the best stress reliever! I'm addicted now too... I have i...

Specific OO flag question.

In one rabbit game, someone had OO flag and was hiding in a building. I had OO flag and went into the same building... couldn't shoot him....couldn't run over (flatten) him...he/she just stayed there for a ridiculous amount of time. So, my question, has anyone found a way to kill that OO flag holder...

I mean you obviously have to be facing it, and the height match of your shot to it, really seems to matter, but I get it more and more often with practice. So I suggest that too!

Re: GM locking on

I add...guided missile does NOT lock onto Stealth. Alot of people don't know about lock on, which when you don't have GM, tells you who you are "looking at" by using the hotkey you have set for it. Helpful should someone have the team flag and not know it, you can tell them. You should review the op...
