Surely that depends on how much of your day you spend on BZFlag, which servers you visit, and how much of a geno-hog you are.

For me, I'd say probably 0.3 times a day...

Well, That can be true, but most mappers place a geno flag in the middle of the map, so I don't see how lucky you can be to get a flag thats in the middle of the map =)


Well, I use geno maybe Twice a week, because I feel that it's just a way to get a lot of kills, and I like to do that kind of thing with out a little "rampage flag".

never use geno why well i just dont.

Im a stealth or laser guy maybe cloaking. I prefer the shotas you have more of. Geno is usually limited and that means i dont like. And on top of that whats the piont of useing it if your only playing agaisnt a few people. Have more fun pickign them off one by one :P

To be honest, i don't really try to get the Genocide flag on most maps, unless it's bloodbath, but i'd say about 0.001 times a day, seeing as it's rather rare when i get the flag, and even rarer if i get a geno. hit!

0.001 times per day means that you use Genocide approximately once every 1,000 days or once every 2.7379 years, which I'm guessing is about as long as or longer than you've been playing.

I get Geno, but I don't really use it a lot. Mainly because I usually play on maps where the geno is shot-limited, or nonexistant. And when I do get Geno I usually spray them and hope for the best.

I don't really consider it that good of a flag.

I hardly EVER get Geno, and when I do, I usually get killed 3 seconds later. So maybe once every three months if I'm lucky. One trick a friend told me (nasty one, probably ban-inducing) is join a map with Rogue Genocide as a Rogue, get a Geno flag and shoot yourself. It may be true about the ban-thing, too, because he has been banned from most maps for reasons he does not know. BEWARE, BE VERY WARE!

Always when I'm getting Geno, I'm dead 5 seconds later. But today, I hit the first time someone with Geno, so I am very happy now :D

i would be, 0.001 :p I only play HiX, Dodge trainer, and sometimes 1v1. You will see me on the public servers sometimes. But, HiX ftw.

I dream of geno

I have a flag beneath my pillow,
I'll mount it on my tank to kill you.
It's a flag seen far and wide and we know,
that most wondrous flag called geno.

chorus:
I got geno on my bike,
and even on my trike.
It's under my kayak,
and rides behind my yak.
I'll launch it from my yurt,
and cause a world of hurt.

They call me nasty names for my singular obsession,
but how can I help this overwhelming possession?
I have dreams of tank parts spraying,
and in nightmare donkeys braying.

repeat chorus

That was, amazing. New bzflag single. You should record this, and post it.

I have tk'd with geno on two occasions, once killing twelve of my team mates, and I tend to drop the flag unless I am a rogue or am the only player on my team. :oops:

Obviously, my team mates were displeased, although a few players stated "nice going" and "thanks." :wink:

lol!

When I play on maps like Mofo or Badgers, I pick the flag up about 3 times and almost always get at least one team.

On a map like MissleWars, I don't use it, ever. Instead, I target the:

and prevent them from using it. :)

All in all, average about once a day.

I'm usually playing GU, and as you know, they don't have a geno flag. When I do happen to go to other maps (maybe once every 2 weeks), I'll probably use geno a couple of times.
