I'd have to say mine is GM or Geno.

Depends on the Server. Shock Wave or Wings

Agility rocks! But anything other than GM is pretty much useless against any reasonably good player with Wings.

I think it definatly depends on the server....

on a server with more than 5 wing jumps, then wings

on a server with good cover, lazer

and on a server with niether of the above probably gm

I like the narrow flag.

It's much more powerful than people expect. This means I can go around killing lots of people without them ganging up to kill me (as with laser or GM or something). The fact that the bullets look like normal is helpful too, it's pretty obvious when someone has laser or SW because you can see and hear the difference.

However, the L flag is just so powerful that sometimes it's better even when people gang up. Kind of a toss-up.

I like Laser, Narrow, Agility, or Wings. They're all good for different circumstances.

Genocide at a populated server.

It gives me that electric feeling.

Completely depends on the server... on Bloodbath (the server I go on most) I rock with geno, cloaking or laser. GM too but to a lesser extent. On MoFo probably tiny, high speed, or wings.

My favorite flags:

1. Burrow. On good servers (ones with a small mult radius, no wide open spaces) this flag is quite nice. I just need to watch out for Joe-Schmoe :-)

2. High Speed. I love this flag. I don't know why. I guess it's because I can face another head on, shoot mildly faster bullets, and then jump right over their heads. I'm considering a patent for this move.

3. Low Gravity/Galaga. I'm all for rare/unimplemented flags!

4. Steamroller. Don't you just love that sound?

5. Rapid Fire. On a select few maps (Pythonian comes to mind), I love this flag. The shot has just enough velocity to fake out people who know when to dodge normal bullets. Once again, useless on wide-open maps.

Sure, there are all sorts of good flags that could make the list, but I chose the flags I like to play with, rather than the flags that propel me to the top of the lists.

I think tiny is a really good flag. gm is good against n00bs but is useless against anyone that knows how to dodge it

Yeah. But "Narrow" is even much better than "tiny", as it has only a width of 1 Pixel!
(Btw, on some servers gm has stronger auto-hit settings. If gm is setted extreme, then even the best gm dodgers cant dodge it)

Well yea, in width, it's still the same length though.

About the narrow thing: Yes, narrow has a width of 1 pixel, but even facing them they're surprisingly easy to hit, because if they're just at the tiniest angle to you, your bullet can easily hit their side. Because of that, i like tiny a lot better.

Yeah, but they're also "cloaked" in that it's hard to see something that's so thin. Sometimes I just blunder right into a narrow tank because I couldn't see him.

Anyway, it's easy to point exactly at another tank because of the targeting reticle. Usually enemies will shoot at you, and then you slide easily between the bullets and finish them off (because they exhausted all their shots).
