    You get 5 bonus points because it was that guy...

    Well, getting a Hackusation, Insult or deliberate Teamkill from Neo isn't that hard... it's like stealing candy from a child.
    He needs some Anger Management.

    ... or needs to Eat a Snickers.

    My thoughts exactly. I still suspect Iridar was hinting at that... :D

    Dora themed tutorials would be good hah
  9. Dualice

    Heheh. Very good :D

    He sure typed out that tirade quickly after you killed him.

    Thanks for feedback, people :)

    Pure coincidence :) I'm not really into outfit politics.
    There actually was a pause, I just cut it out.

    Ahah, great video. And that poor Infi raging much... :D

    By he way, i'll never understand why outplayed people may criticize their opponent with such stupid arguments. You tried, you failed, end of the story...Why arguing in such silly ways, i mean...Just to try to convince yourself and your opponent that what happened didn't really happened ?...This is so ridiculous.

    This is a good video. But how about the clocking quad bikes, I have big difficulty cuntering those.
  14. Iridar51

    Those are pretty difficult. They are hard to see, because they use infantry cloak visibility ranges. Essentially, the further the cloaked object is, the harder it is to spot. It's not a problem for infantry, becuase even a 100m is a very long distance for foot soldiers. But a Flash covers that it in a heartbeat.

    Due to their raw speed, wraith flashes are pretty hard to nail down, even if you see one, usually you can't do enough to it before it gets away. Your best hope is to wait for an opportunity when the flash bumps into something and stops for a few seconds, and then you can attempt to kill the driver. Obviously, try to stay indoors as much as possible.

    Wraith flashes are often used to camp sunderers deployed outdoors. In situations like that there's nothing you can do, it's their domain.

    Tank mines would be a good counter, but there's a big risk of getting killed - sometimes by that same flash - as you go to deploy them.

    Nice vid! I'm usually full time TR, but If you like collecting hackusations, switch to NC and go on an Airhammer killing streak with radar/thermals. I was averaging 2-3 hackusations a day. Infiltrators seem to take it personal when you find them, seems to be the theme.
  16. Armcross

    Well that means I need more mines and ask other people to lay more mines then.
  17. Iridar51

    I guess another thing you might try is to pull a Lightning, if situation allows for it. Flash can barely scratch it, while the Lightning is faster, and with rival chassis almost as maneuverable. So, for example, if a Flash keeps bothering your sunderer outdoors, you can just camp it with a Lightning. You probably won't see it from afar due to mentioned cloak distances, but you can catch it as it decloaks.

    Or, much easeir, man Sunderer's turrets, but you might not always have good line of sight.

    I'm wondering why the hell he gave an hackusation anyway.

    If it had been me I would have been wondering how you happened upon me, but seeing that there's about 30 friendlies in the area running around in almost every direction imaginable I would just have called it bad luck on my part and continued.

    Also after I killed my first player I am already feeling I've been made by everyone because someone is going to come looking for me. That's why I've been treating cloak as a highly efficient camouflage. It hides you but does not guarantee not being seen.

    I don't have access to lightning(or any other additional vehicle) during those situation. I can hear them and know the general direction where they come from and where their general direction they are going but I can't still even hit them during those time. What I can do is run to safe place and just wait for di-cloak and shoot them as much as possible. And that is still not a guaranty.
  20. Iridar51

    Well, sounds like it just comes down to improving your shooting. But, like I said, Wraith Flashes are hard to pin down. This is just something we have to live with.

    Maybe guys at infiltrator subforum can give some better tips to you?
