Poor barrens chat.
After everyone telling me not to go Recon, why? Anyway, I think I'm gonna roll with Assault. Is there any tips for that class? And can I have multiple characters so I can try other classes?
i wouldnt be surprised at all if they did premium cosmetics in the pay shop though...
At least they're isolated in pre-30 bracket for now but as soon as many of them will start leveling up above 30+, the shit will go down.
Especially since Hi-Rez buffed all the most useless and retarded things in the game.
Global Agenda has been MY game ever since the release. I used to know all the little things. I was successfully leading Strike Forces for one of the top 10 EU agencies.
Now I don't even understand the flow of a match.
Pre-1.4 it was all about relationships between Assault/Medic pairs and Robotics nests, with occasional support of tech and Recons.
Right now a single poison medic can negate all the healing from hardworking Healer, Meleecons are doing as much damage as good Snipercons and Run'n'Gun Assaults are completely butchered.
Hey, I am playing a healer medic and I am a free agent :colbert:
Jack Trades is an angry person who is very protective of his video game.
Yeah, they're allowed.
You don't get loot. You'll never get equipment. Unless someone gives them to you. Or you could work REALLY hard, and try to get them from NPCs. It goes something like, a month for a piece of equipment.
I don't even know if you can recieve mail, which is basically the trade system.
Should I use the personal turret, autocannon, or rocket turret?
The personal turret can fire at a large radius, though the damage gap with the other turrets is pretty large, and it's not that durable.
Also that was a bit harsh, I admit.
Basically I don't like GA going F2P because:
1. It fucks up the community since any griefer-nolifer can register as many accounts as possible and there are few taking the game seriously. (post-30 bracket fixes that for higher level characters).
2. Recons are well known for being the worst players in the game. It's also the most popular class. F2P means that there will be even more bad Recons. Again, it's partially fixed with post-30 brackets.
Honestly I am about to play recon because I can't win as any other class.
When I am assault I die alone on points and never get heals, I spam enemy robotic nests with explosives and don't destroy anything.
When I am medic no one I heal seems to have any situational awareness or aim at all.
I could try robotics, or I could go recon, who doesn't have to rely on teammates at all. Would be a nice change of pace from having to rely on retards.
Just going to say that if you are going to play Recon, play it properly.
1. Don't go ReRe (RetardRecon - Meleecon)
2. Don't go Bombercon, bombs are super easily dodged and a decent robo will easily outrepair them. Also it will make you totally useless while you wait for your cooldown.
3. If you're using Ballista, prioritize mechanical targets over other players. There's nothing worse than 2 Recons failing at sniping each other and doing fuck all for the team.
4. Get Scorpia as soon as you can and target Medics and Assaults with it, Scorpia is the most annoying thing for a Medic, it will make them unable to heal themselves or their Assaults properly, they both will die really quickly.
I've got some more tips but they're for lvl 30+ only, remember Objective Points > Damage/Kills
Leveling is painfully slow though, was fine until I finished the desert quests. Now I get 500 XP per match and need 8000 to level up.
To be honest they do a terrible job of trying to get me to buy Elite Agent. 90% of my rewards are green items with 4% healing and shit like that. Saw a purple regen once though.
i re-installed this a few days ago and i was partly surprised. the community seems to know what to do now in PvP and PvE.
however, leveling is still really slow, there are like 10 different weapons and very little replayability in the end.
oh well, started an agency with some of my friends.
After a while, it turned out to be a generic FPS game with classes.
I have no idea why it lost its appeal to me all of a sudden, maybe it's because of the really small variety of stuff to pick from.
I had a dream about Global Agenda :ohdear:
I had a dream about Global Agenda.
Someone executed mass genocide on all Recons.
That was nice.
I was in one of those mechsuits fucking everything up.
Mine was part Star Wars part global agenda. I had a AT Walker fucking up DOME CITY :D.
When I started the game, I was so pissed that you have to join the rebels... when that agent guy said "you were to be an asset to us, but it's to late now," I was like OH GOD PLEASE NO JUST LET ME JOIN YOU!
Wow nobody knows how to play a Dome Defence Raid mission.
The best way is to get one assault to sit in a specific place and tank all the damage from the boss with a medic, while everyone else kills the adds.
Pass it on
I'm really disappointed in GA 1.4, it was an awesome Tactical TPSMMO and now it's fucking Call of Agenda.
I guess that mindless derping around the map without any strategy is more popular than using the fucking brain and that's the reason they made it so.
Now all my hopes are in Tribes Universe.
As much as I hate to say it I totally agree, I got this game last year at around August and since then teamwork and tactics have gone completley down the drain.
At this point even in the post 30 bracket where you'd think every would understand their purpose no one actually co operates, recons and assaults would rather get some easy kills than clear a robo nest that pins down the team and medics aren't helpful in the slightest they can't even properly kill with poisons and even healers will abandon a guy about to die just to get a quick kill that the person ignored.
It's still really fun don't get me wrong but it's no where near as good as it was when I started.
Tactics and teamwork haven't existed since the beta :colbert:
Game was best in alpha imo.
Hows the game these days?
Haven't played in ages.
