Could we do something about Machine Gun?

Post by The Purple Panzer » Wed Sep 14, 2005 3:42 pm

Machine Gun seems the most useless of all flags, even more useless than Useless - unless it's supposed to be a negative flag, but it isn't, as you can drop it.

The range is too short to be of any effect whatever in any case when I've ever had the flag. Perhaps there is a server variable to set the range - I'm not in a position to check right now - and increasing the range by a factor of 3 or 4 might make it an interesting flag.

Has anyone ever had any positive experience with this flag? How could we change it to make it attractive?

There are variables to be changed...
A-Delusion tends to make it very powerful, try his server... :)

Yes, MG is a great flag at MoFo and Delusion's place. the range is extended- even though it's still short, you can pretty much annihilate anything that gets close enough.
Optimism is just a milder alternative to denial.

I've had good experiences with it. Short killing sprees.
