Suggestion for a new Flag.

Post by Raydon » Tue Apr 16, 2013 8:20 pm

What about a flag that allows you to drop bombs when you jump?

or a flag that will allow you to shoot up at people jumping or flying?

There's also some servers with a setting called ShotsKeepVerticalVelocity, which aims the bullets up or down based on your own tank's movement. So if you shoot as you reach the apex of your jump, the shots will angle upwards, and as you fall back down, the shots will also angle downwards. Very useful for hitting tanks on ledges or waiting for you to hit the ground. And if you're good you can even use it to shoot BU. Most maps don't use this setting though. A few that do are Hide 'n Seek Hills, Bridge Crossing, and Easter Island.
