    might as well post some, as they're unlikely to get ninjaed by someone who isn't interested.
    Took the first one. Cheers!

    Cheers Qaz, the first of those has now been used.


    Edit: Ok, who understands all these stats? Some of them are evidently wrong but it does tell me that I'm rubbish at this game which is accurate. Anyone have suggestions for which are the most meaningful stats?

    Nabbed qazz' second code.

    I am worth one million dollars and I have 824 yoloswag MLG-score. Kalezin had like 4 million networth and 4000 MLG-score. What does it mean though? I have a pretty high IVI-score as well, but HSR is something I am lacking in. What the hell is HSR? The site doesn't seem to say.

    Head shot ratio? No idea what the other ratios actually mean though. I have a negative net worth which suggests 'bad'.

    That must be it, thanks. Seems to be correct as well as I've never been much of a headshot player.

    edit: It really is funny seeing the KDR padding on TR folks. They love those rocket pods I guess.

    IVI is infantry versus infantry, methinks. As for the MLG score and net worth, I think that is the american approach to sports: assign caps to teams' total value, so that there won't be 2-3 teams hoarding all the top value players (which is already happening on the American servers).

    DA as an outfit is interested in MLG. They, along with NUC, FCRW and TIW have focused their development on that, actively poaching BR100s from the rest of the outfits of their servers.

    How does one actively poach in an MMO? They do it in sports by paying mega bucks but in a F2P MMO? Presumably they just promise fame and success which becomes self fulfilling because they've now got all the BR100s.

    The MLG score and net worth are there just for fun.

    Just look at INI. Though I don't think they actively poach, they still have a reputation on being a serious outfit, the best on Miller, and that give them a lot of candidates to join them. That's guaranteed training to help you being better, bragging rights for being in the best outfit, and of course opportunities to fights in MLG-like format (for example the nexus battle).

    I wouldn't be surprised if any TR guy who leave BRTD or DEIM only does so to join INI.

    Ksempac is right. As for INI, there are even VS and NC who've switched to TR just to join them. LikeABoss for instance, who was an NC.

    At least the situation is not bad, like the American servers, where the best players have concentrated on a handful of outfits. In fact these outfits go as far as to actively try and recruit people that are good at specialised roles, for instance lib crews (pilot/gunner pairs), further thinning out the ranks of the other outfits from experienced members, which could pass on their knowledge to others.

    There are many reasons why we need to tighten up our game, and one of the major ones is that experienced and talented players will leave, either for another outfit or abandon the game entirely. In the meantime, the gap between us and the competitive outfits will grow wider, and there will be less of the veterans around to teach the game to new members. So the game experience will be even more frustrating for newer players, who may join, play a while, go "Wow! Big battles" and then "Oh, not another farm!" and bounce off the outfit and the game.

    It is a death spiral, no matter how exaggerated that may sound.

    Amusingly, that was the dude that leaked the ncto/tva stuff to pella and consequently was kicked from his NC outfit. Also, compare the score/kd on his nc and tr character and you'll know why people switch. Outfits like INI are often quite intent on creating opportunities for farming, and this shows.

    Wow... just... wow... I knew about the incident, but didn't know who it was.

    I've taken out a couple of times their overconfident harasser, as they seem to BFF, farming in a Marauder buggy.

    By the way, some of the tactics of the TR, and general attitude towards the game... We've never got the chance to discuss such things. And outfit members should be aware.

    A new VS sniper rifle is in the works (together with equivalents from the other empires I presume).



    Now, I wonder what will be the specialty of this one. 299792458 m/s lazor please?

    Would be pretty sweet with a more or less instant hit beam weapon where the damage is spread over 0.2-0.5 seconds or so.

    Would feel pretty vanu-ish imho and at least be very unique.

    I fear that'd be incredibly hard to balance without feeling completely underpowered on a per shot basis.

    If you make it so you need to maintain contact for a short amount of time to get a 1 headshot kill it would give the target time to react, which is more than you get vs. bolt actions. That would be traded off for the pinpoint accuracy. You would still have to be really good to track a moving target or catch someone with their pants down, which is kind of similar how the normal bolt actions work.

    Scope sway could perhaps stop the accuracy being too exploitable.

    I just like the sound of burning people with lasers.
