I thought that it said the "special" message only on your first kill with that weapon. Examples... "... was fried by ...'s laser" "... felt the effects of ...'s shock wave" "... was skewered by ...'s super bullet" Is this true? Because if it is, that's probabl...

Just a thought, a pearl harbor map? I'd think that would be too hard of a gameplay, it was more of an air strike than a ground attack... But, another idea, you could have 'fighter' looking objects that shoot world weapon 'bombs' (bullets), or other weapons. (Shock wave or laser). If you wanted it t...

New idea... Maybe you could have many modeled tanks facing towards each other from each side. It would give the impression of you fighting alongside other "tanks". Not to mention some hiding places and cover spots. Clear this up...The "bad" side in D-Day were the Germans. Not the...

Wings? Couldn't you put a bunch at the bottom?

A good idea, but it is nearly the same as sandy mcgee beach, to me. With possibly a few minor eye candy changes.

It's a nice idea, but it would be very annoying to people who didn't have the patch.

Those who do could use it as a way to spam, by honking all the time. Plus, it's virtually useless to someone who doesn't have it unless they want their chat box filled up with "*HONK*s".

I thought it affected the speed of your bullets, not the length. Isn't length the same all the time excluding rapid-fire and machine gun?

There are different modes, used at all times, and give different views of the battle.

Roaming is one of the features that many people don't know about, yet is a very good view. However, seeing observer tanks, even if only other observers can see you, would make the mode complex.

Huh? Like a continuous siren if someone is holding your flag? That would be very annoying. Possibly more spread out sounds, like one every 30 seconds or so, so that people know that your flag is in danger.

I think that the Idea for some of those maps is to not have Radar at all. so wouldnt the kinnda defeat the point? Yes, it would. Even if this flag were to give an advantage on these maps, it would be way to high of one. Skilled players would lurk in-between the shadows of hide-and-seek-hills, and h...

It was probably a official league server, like GU, plosileague (down right now), or ducati. Although you are globally registered on this site, you have to register on their websites to be able to spawn and talk on those servers.

It is useful, if the shots do not keep their vertical velocity. Otherwise, the winged battles become a entirely new game. Still, in my opinion, it is always better to be on top.

There is already a counterflag for laser: Cloaking. Cloaked tanks cannot be killed by a laser. :wink: use that instead. Now absorbing lasers? It wouldn't have much use on a non-laser map. Not to mention that not many people would care to get it, since it is virtually useless if no one is shooting a...

I am sure, with 99% certainty that this server will go unused.

Yes, no one taught me how to use wings, or anyone for that matter when wings were implemented into the game. They had to learn the ways of it.

How would it work exactly? You couldn't just bounce lasers off the tank itself. The area the tank takes up is like a circle, but if the laser just bounced off, the treads, perhaps, it would rico off the tank randomly. It would have to make the tank look like more of a box, and that could get complic...
