HE was fun but in the CTF games I think it got over used. Most guards just sat and nested on the flag packing 3 or 4 bombs. Made ctf games in big maps like scrub kinda frustratin'. We will use them every now and again though. Just not all the time.

Good bye, HE. I was fun while it lasted..

In the early days when HE was available, I packed a few on my runner as a means of annoying the enemy guards. The normal weapons were useless against the Novas and Maddys, but it was fun to explode on a defender when all else was lost. It also came in handy to try to take out the pursuers of your teammate trying to make a getaway from the enemy.

I haven't been around much, lately, but I did play a game where defenders would sit on the flag loaded with HE. It was a bit of a challenge to try to snag the flag while avoiding the blast. If you were lucky you could get enough altitude to sail over the explosion and still get the flag. Unfortunately, you became an easy target for laser boats. It was very satisfying, though, to hear the defender wail, "nooooooooo" when he exploded without inflicting damage.

Too bad you can't modify the game so that HE can't be used within 600m of your own base. It would be funny if you automatically blew up if you violated this zone. You would be allowed to use HE within an enemy's zone.

Still, it was more annoying trying to run in Frostbite against team 1 when they had 3 novas and at least 1 maddy defending. Being hit by 27+ lasers is not fun.

Ditto, what Spiff said. I learned the game in a mostly CTF clan and played nothing but that for a couple of years. HE is a valued part of CTF defence and offence. Proper use makes for a very interesting game. How to get around or through the defender. Easiest way is to use at least two runners, one to neutralize the MechBomb, the other to grab flag.
It is no different than several laser boats defending. I have even played when the mid range defender has some HE. An armor stripped speed maxed Hellbringer (Loki) with a couple autocannons and a ton of HE is one hell of a chaser.

No HE is quite disappointing.

P.S. I have played in the past when laser boat defender was using an aimbot and could also shoot through cover.

HeHe, anyone else remember, and i tihnk this was in 1.0, but you used to be able to fire HE multiple times, and it only damaged your mech a little each time, that was interesting, used to see an Osiris with HE take out several Daisis in one run

Man that was a long time ago

Copy pasta from the voting thread. Re posting it here just in case someone misses it. BTW PLEASE VOTE!



Although I agree with you, it got to the point recently that just about EVERY player was packing HE. We had several CTF games with NO CAP. Only kills and the average score was about 200. It wasn't much fun just seeing who could play the best game of chicken before detonating at the last second and getting a kill. Also with this, the guards did not guard... there was a time that they did. In these games though, all the guards did was roost on the flag together and blow up (and usually killing a team-mate in the process) I agree suiciding and HE are excellent strategies but there has to be a line drawn on how far that can be pushed. Otherwise we might as well make a NEW ctf game and call it "BOMBERMAN Mech Edition" shocked. I do love blowing my self up on a guard and taking them out. It is a great feeling. However to get to the other teams flag, you must cross into their spawn. And wave after wave after wave of bombs really just seems like breaking a game. Also I got to throw my hands up when roughly an hour and a half of gameplay went by and NO ONE captured the flag. It became chess with bombs. The first time the chess with bombs happened it was pretty cool. I even got a screen shot of it! But that only happened in the last 15 minutes of one game. The following venge nights had nearly 0 caps in each game of ctf. That ain't right. Srsly. A few folks complained about it and I had to agree with them, those were some of the worst ctf games I've played in a while. cry

But enough of my crying. heheh. I'll stay true to our rules! If it gets voted in then there isn't much I can do about it! I'll abide by what you folks want to do in there! Heck, its as much your server as it is mine! grin Just want us all to have a good time in there! And the only time I want to throw my hands up and shout is when, Spiff, Ra, Zaug and Tread shoot me over and over and shut me out of an attrition game. Heheeh.

Game on, folks! cool
