Whoever thought that the Devotion should be a 3 hit kill at all ranges needs to sit in silence and think about what they've done.
Whenever I hear that Devotion wind up in the distance, I know it's gonna be a shit game filled with Tones and campers so I grab my amped DMR and oneshot the shit out of them.
When titans start to fall I grab ion and laser core every particle wall I see to smithereens
When I hear devotions winding up, I prepare myself for a good old fashioned witch hunt.
The problem with lane watching is that people do the same shit with tones on angel city. Angel city doesn't really let you sneak up on people and give your titan any cover. Of course you could just coordinate with your team but ahahahahahaha nobody uses mics on PC except people nobody wants to hear speak
Taking out camping titans would be so much easier if they didn't make it harder to use your titans as bombs
Within the first minute two people on my team quit and then I quit.
that's my first match leave btw
Now if only it wasn't 50% grunt kills.
What's with all the micspam lately?
I'm trying to use the DMR + Pulse Blade as a variation on my usual run n' gun + phase shift playstyle, and I'm pretty sure the DMR just isn't for me. I can't kill or hit things. Part of the problem is that I got a new mouse, which while super nice, doesn't feel quite right as I haven't got used to it yet
Not stopping northstar though, still having too much fun with that. I wish the warpaints were cooler though, or the noseart. I really don't like the noseart for the northstar
anybody else have no problem at all dealing with tone? the missile barrage is a bit op especially compared to some other cores but playing as ronin, legion, or scorch i usually win in a 1v1 with a tone. his defensive sucks ass so as long as you move forward he's pretty easy to kill unless he pops a core
It entirely depends on the scenario and how the Tone is playing.
Speaking as a Scorch, if you get the drop on them you can take care of them with ease. However, if they have at least half a brain, their first priority is to disengage by dashing away, setup a Particle Wall, make you waste your Thermal Shield (which slows you down when active), and follow up with a shit ton of rockets. Also, if they know actually care enough about the game to know about it, pop smoke to put out any fires and hide themselves as they rocket you.
The times I have successful frontal encounters against Tone are if they're extremely cocky and stay in range of my fiery hugs or if they get pushed back into a corner due to my Incendiary Trap positioning (which usually ends up with me running away from a Nuke Eject).
Which annoys me with Tones, they can just charge up to you because they know their tracking rockets will fuck you up.
Does your new mouse have buttons on it to let you change DPI on the fly? Because that shit is a godsend. I lower the sensitivity when I need precision and then raise it when I need to be able to turn and shoot fast.
You might be better off with double take, it's easier to land hits.
I started using flatline and northstar with viper thrusters. What a combo that is. Is it me or do the viper thrusters also increase sprint speed? because that fucker is really fast now. Flatline feels too cheesy though since it kills in three hits and is accurate. I don't feel bad about it because at least I'm not tone+devotion scum and it hasn't changed my playstyle of flying around the map
Wingman Elite is the sidearm I use with that loadout though, and that's tons of fun by itself.
You should never toggle sensitivity.
The VPK hack that gives you small reticle is working far more effective than I expected, I actually feels more accurate with most SMG and assault rifle while I'm hipfiring which is helpful because I never hit anything with ADS
You shouldn't be trying to ADS anyway because it stops you from going fast
Had a few good games, but BOY everyone was playing like assholes in their titans tonight. All tones and legions grouped together on the far sides of the maps camping
If you have to toggle sensitivity you probably just need a bigger mousepad. It'd also probably be better to use in-game binds instead of DPI switches.
Do you just constantly flank against a Tone? In a proper face to face battle with equal footing, it feels like Tone is better.
Finally, the film grain option is coming!
Basic changes snippets
-Titans that are invulnerable while performing executions will have their lifebars colored gold and flashing to communicate their invulnerability.
-Prime Titans can now use Nose Arts.
-Nuclear Eject damage no longer fills your Titan Meter.
-Reduced Salvo Core's damage.
-Removed the damage falloff from Salvo Core rockets.
-Increased the cooldown of Sonar Pulse.
-Reduced the projectile size of the 40mm.
-Tone Burst Loader Improvements:
-Slight presentation tweaks.
-Updated audio cues.
-Leaving ADS now clears the charges
I think this is damn useful!
There's a ton of other things in the patchnotes worth reading. They are fixing a ton!
Apparently the update is delayed because they found a bug late in QC which has delayed certification.
I don't see anything about Salvo Core not filling up the Titan Meter in the notes though...
Has anyone gone back to play the campaign since becoming really good at the MP? I feel like I might not enjoy the campaign as much anymore now that nothing in it would be a challenge since human controlled pilots and titans are an actual challenge.
To clarify the nuke eject changes, getting kills with the nuke will still give you meter
Also Ronin and Northstar's dash recharge is being buffed to 5 seconds, turns out turbo-engine slowing down dash recharge was a bug
It looks like the Ion splash damage bug was fixed as well
Scorch Gooses just got way easier.
Holy shit that Scorch change though, that'll make it really easy to shoot inside buildings at long distance, I love it
Wish they would add a HUD scale option though, everything is too big right now IMO.
Except for the chat which on the other hand is near invisible
Nuke eject is part of the ronin's charm though. How can you expect him not to commit seppuku upon being defeated?
