    New raid is inherently hard. Even when getting used to the flow the challenge will be significant.

    im probably going to sound really, really dumb, but how do i trade with people without using mail? my dad joined in the game, and if he plays often i may send him a few thousand credits every once in a while (i have like 200k of them ) but he has a free account so he cannot use mail. is there an actual trade function?

    Fuck those Juggernauts man :gonk:

    First time playing we got more than 10 deaths. And Bancroft still dies with two beam heals plus two healing nades plus a heal wave on him :saddowns:

    imo, Sniper recon is way much more better then Shealth Recon... because backstabs does not get an insta-kill unless your lucky. Sniper I don't have a problem with, PvE and PvP rise, just stay behind, find a good spot to camp, fire every npc and retreat when fire upon, repeat. I always go where the crowd is at because they will back me up when I am having problems.

    No, Mail and Auction House is how you trade in GA.
    Free Agents can't trade.

    I'm so fucking tired of this. Nothing is forcing you to play this, go play some BC2 instead.

    It's not dying, it's just that the matchmaking is slow as fuck and the class limits mean you have to sometimes wait ages for certain classes. (Mainly medics and assaults)

    Yeah, just do some quests while you're at it, those have seriously nice rewards. I wasted thousands of creds buying white gear, which I later got questing, AND, it was green.

    Nothing is forcing me to play. Valid argument against my observation of how 130 people sit in a queue together and not get put in a game

    Find a matchmaking game where people don't have to wait. The more matchmaking system needs to find, the longer they'll have to wait. Global Agenda needs to matchmake 20 players.

    They need to be matchmaked.
    Heroes of Newerth needs to find 8 players out of 10000 and you still have to wait 5 minutes sometimes.
    Those 130 people are of different class, level and rating. Matchmaker considers all those things.

    It probably matchmakes based on rating because it definitely doesn't based on class and level.

    Three?
    Since when does Elite agents get 2 loot drops?
    I am dumb and didn't look good at the menu. I get 1x half Credits+Tokens, 1x Half Credits+Tokens+Loot and 1x Booster loot+Credits/tokens.

    Max 3 players of the same class per team? 1-29, 30-50 brackets?

    Also when 50 of those 130 are recons it's even harder.

    Even though the wait is longer it's better than playing with really uneven teams before they added the three of each class limit.

    Oh two whole brackets, touche.

    It doesn't matchmake based on class, I had 5 robotics on my team the other night.

    Lier. They maxed amount of classes per team to 4 since forever and lowered it to 3 back in 1.3 .

    Edited:

    12/03/2010: Version 1.39 Patch Notes
    Major Highlights since Version 1.38
    New Merc PvP Maps

    Volcano Assault: Breach-style map.
    Himalayan Point: Breach-style map. Scenes from this map can be seen in the original Global Agenda “talking heads” trailer. (NOTE: This map will not be in queue immediately upon deployment due to a known issue in the map. We will be releasing a fix shortly to add it).
    Toxicity: Payload-style map.

    Additional Merc PvP changes

    New Merc-specific PvP Rewards: New epic combat jetpacks for each class are now available as rare mission rewards from Merc PvP. They have a different look, slightly less power usage, increased thrust and flight speed, and will bind on equip.
    Versions of the Commonwealth elite items (different weapon names, same stats) now drop as Merc PvP rewards.
    Merc PvP queue now enforces a class cap of 3. (This was implemented on LIVE on 11/17/2010. No side within Merc PvP can have more than 3 of the same class.)
    Edited:

    Not nice, not nice.

    It is spelled liar and I am not lying. Maybe the change was reverted in the newest patch. I definitely had 5 robotics on my team. It was 5 robotics, 2 assaults, one medic, and 2 recon.

    Stop taking others not liking your video game so personally

    It did not get reverted, it would be in the change logs so unless you can provide a match history for that, I'm going to call you a liar.

    Raidyr, I just checked your 3 games:
    http://www.agendastats.com/mission.php?mid=8515704
    http://www.agendastats.com/mission.php?mid=8515399
    http://www.agendastats.com/mission.php?mid=8515277

    None of them have 5 robotics on your team.

    You probably got the Robotics + Recon logos confused or mixed up or something. It's impossible to have more than 3 of a class on the same team atm.

    Matchmaker matches based on Star Rating, Level Bracket, and Class.

    The boss kills bancroft so fast, it's impossible for one or two medics to keep him healed, maybe medics will be more popular in dome defence when people realise this.

    That would be suits or helmets. Armor is purely stat and suits are purely appearance.

    Can you find suits and helmets as loots? They're so expensive :(
