Quick Question. (in General)

I have a quick question I was wondering peoples oppinions on. How do most people feel about defensive ammo? I know that if I added to the + on a few arrows I might not get beat by a few teams that farm me quite a lot, but my question is how do people feel about it? I know it's not against the rules, but just as double tapping isn't against the rules people look down on it. Do people look down on defensive ammo the same way? Thanks

Some people are against it, some don't mind. I am against it, but since it is not against the rules, I use defensive ammo regardless.

If it's not against the rules and you can do it, I suggest you start pumping some +'s in your defensive ammo. :)

Some do. some don't, just depends on who you ask.

I don't like it. In fact I don't like defensive set ups in general. They skew the score ladder. You fight unequipped and set your score then by equipping defensive gear your bump your power but not your score. I have used both in the past ;)

If we must have upgradable ammo I think the costs need to be changed, + is far too cheap.

I think defensive ammo is lame but the only solution I tried was worse than the problem. So this is an open research area for me. :)

My only beef about defensive ammo (or most defensive stances in general) is that they are more easy to use for a physical (tank) team than a mage team. There is not really anything a mage can equip defensively.

Other than that, I am not sure I have a problem with it -- it is an advantage to people who pay attention, and adds spice to the clan game. I think clans are stupid, but for someone who doesn't think they are dumb, I would think any extra spice would be welcome...

Ok thanks for the responses. I did decide to up my regular ammo to +5 but don't intend on using higher ammo to stick on for defense. I also would like to add that I feel kinda special to have a thread started that the maker of the game responded to. :) Well back to trying to get 1 mil mpr.

I personally would like to see ammo unable to be upgraded. If you need more x or +, upgrade the missile launcher.

Defensive ammo is like any other piece of equipment used only for defense -- it's retarded.
