Thank you 079
My google wallet tracks my spending and i load up cards so i always have a good idea. Likely doesn't look like it but I'm fairly well disciplined in my budget.
After alot of reading last night i got some good insight and ideas. Ill drop in a pic with my weapon levels shortly.
I just bought the loki as a beacon runner for versatility and variety of gameplay. Same for levelling the demeter.
Loved the idea of zenits.... those i remember from the old days and when i saw them (once) in gameplay it was obvious no one knew what to do about it. Lol
I guess I'm a midrange territorial control guy who will go toe to toe when i feel it strategically necessary to get a beacon or when a scorp/ rev wants a piece. I like brawling but its very meta based. Id say im 60-40 in those , using my speed and ability to actually turn the robots torso independantly from the legs. ( Mechwarrior master ) i almost solely play dom as my pilot skills lean that way and I thought it best to wait before using gold. I've no issue sacrificing a bot to change the tide of a battle.
I almost decided to run all typhon and become a master of that bot and weapon platform.... little one dimensional as entertainment though...lol
I'm feeling as though i need to focus on a balanced team for the various maps. From the vets i was hoping for some hard truths on witch bots and weapons are likely gonna stay versatile.I was really pissed at the last nerf wasting a ton of my time and rss but seems thats just pixo being butt heads.
Try it this way.
Orochi - fun bot but i haven't had alot of success.i have all of them but thinking prob not worth it.
Fafnir - ded dead. Useless. slow as molasses on a cold day.
Behemoth. 4 heavies... can see that being useful, but i feel its a long range bot and i dont have much long range weapons. On the fence .... after reading 079 I may just put 4 zenits on it as a troll. It might even work!
Ravana - im afraid if i level it, they'll nerf it, but seems viable and potentially strong as a tank?
Harpy siren and bendy weapons... while i use them...cuz they work.... i feel a massive nerf coming and have stopped upgrading. The weapons are the issue not the bots imo. Bots are squishy imo but versatile. Weapons are a joke, leaves almost no where to hide and never should have been introduced. Let's stick with the laws of physics as we currently understand them.
I'm assuming these two bots will become hard to play so thinking about alternate team bots.
Demeter or mender i don't have a mender atm. I like the idea of support, but I'm not great at it and likely should just focus on one area till either my clan grows up or i start squading or playing with an established clan.
Scorpion again fun bot, personally hate the bugger but thats cuz they seem to luv me.... i need practice but really not my game. I'm straight up , lets dance muther trucker kinda guy.
Fenrir. Solid bot not sure its my style and id have to use fendeer....
I have no revenant and likely not my cup of tea although it is one of the harder bots to kill. Fenrir are tough but at mid i rarely have any issues. I just wear them down.
Please mention any bots i missed or any you feel may be valuable or suited to my style and ill remember to hang on to them.
I've had some great fun with like minded players using complementary bots and teamwork to dazzle randoms with smart tactical gameplay. The best was a wasp typhon and me with my pulsars. I lock em he or she delivered the KO as we circled in and out while reloading. Absolutely sexy! Best game ever!
You can see I'm quite wordy. I like to try to be clear in my intent. I apologize in advance.
Discord - i have used it and will if required but I'm a mellow laid back sort who doesn't want my game to be a job, but recognize in teamwork its not always about me.
Weapons somewhat limited here, i find the gold cost outrageous, and pixo not granting me much variety. More accurately, as many would probably love to have what i got is pixo dont give me what im really after. Right now if i had punchers id be messing peeps large.
Cryo hard to aim and land at any distance
Scorchers work fairly well except against speedy bots but dont seem to like to aim upward. And cryo won't aim upward?...
Wasps...good damage , very long reload time.... on the fence again. I have 6 total. Two levelled 1.9
Ive lots of incinerator ,scald and the other medium, almost no flame weapons... i doubt id be good at them.
Got a couple magnetar started and two ardent stings. I recently became aware that its much cheaper to level some of the " lesser" weapons. Some advice on those if any are practical may be helpful.
Anyway best close the novel out. Hop you enjoyed it. Stay tuned for the sequel. If i had a million dollars.... joking joking.
The advice I'm after would be. " if it were me I'd do..... then one or two thoughts. Yall dont need to write novel like me.
I love humor and can be a bit goofy. Very glad i found you all.
