You know what I hate, really hate, really reallly. (in General)

The End of Deus (Hidden Agenda) defeated Koyaanisqatsi after 6 rounds of combat

No, not that I lose to Freed, well sort of.

It is that with normal ammo I win quite easy.

But a simple stack of uber upgraded ammo causes me to lose even before I can get to swing my MH.

Such a massive change in a battle for a small cost.

That, as they say in Brooklyn, is utter crap.

Jon,

Please stop this bane on CB. Pretty please, with sugar and a cherry on top!

I don't mean to sound sarcastic, but what needs to be fixed?

PotatoHead June 18 2008 5:35 PM EDT

To answer the name of this thread... EVASION!

That's what you really really really hate... from what I've read.

What do I win?

PotatoHead June 18 2008 5:37 PM EDT

oh... it wasn't a question. My sorries. ::punishes himself::

Fanta [Fanta's Forge] June 18 2008 5:55 PM EDT

He's complaining that upgraded ammo is too cheap for what it gives.

Flamey June 18 2008 5:55 PM EDT

Umm, he beats you if he pays that extra money, he can't normally beat you, so its not a constant thing. I wouldn't be worrying.

Upped ammo is of the same ilk as seeker arrows...

I liked seeker arrows, I like that Freed and Mikel can choose to beat me if they want to spend the cash...

that being said... it HURTS

QBOddBird June 18 2008 6:01 PM EDT

It's a constant thing if he can afford it ;'D and Freed can certainly afford it!

I'm with novice, it's just one of those 'choose to beat you if they spend the cash' things....but when you say it is of the same ilk as seekers, do keep in mind that Jon felt it worthwhile to remove them from the game.

Lochnivar June 18 2008 6:05 PM EDT

how 'upped' is the ammo in question?

Mikel June 18 2008 6:13 PM EDT

"I liked seeker arrows, I like that Freed and Mikel can choose to beat me if they want to spend the cash... "

+3 Arrows + Named are pretty cheap, doesn't even really cut much into my profits.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] June 18 2008 6:25 PM EDT

hmm so what takes you less than a CB an arrow costs me around 17 mil to combat... sweet

Maximus June 18 2008 6:42 PM EDT

Freed is quite easy to beat actually.

Exacerbation's explosive shot hit Pepper [1322], Sour [528], Sweet [0], Spice [528]


Ammo or not. Same result.

Soxjr June 18 2008 6:53 PM EDT

maximus not everyone will put that much into ec. and all he needs is 1 str and all that ec is a waste... then it would hurt.

Brakke Bres [Ow man] June 18 2008 6:56 PM EDT

and maximus you are easy to beat :)

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] June 18 2008 6:56 PM EDT

/me points and laughs at the guy getting beat by chars with 1/3 the PR and 1/5 the mpr

At least when I did the EC setup I could actually beat a mage or two.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] June 18 2008 7:00 PM EDT

"/me points and laughs at the guy getting beat by chars with 1/3 the PR and 1/5 the mpr"

Does that mean they're overpowered?

Hey if that excuse worked for the RBF teams, why not now? :P

Lochnivar June 18 2008 7:02 PM EDT

Maximus is an RoBF team..... whoa this is getting confusing!

He also has a very focused strat which has no real defense against magic damage (or another large RoBF)

..... and welcome to my fight list Maximus!

Maximus June 18 2008 7:03 PM EDT

i don't plan to beat everybody. Something different is all I after.

it's just a game after all :)

Lochnivar June 18 2008 7:04 PM EDT

Well said Maximus....

All teasing aside that is rather the point, have fun and be different (or at very least try to).

QBRanger June 18 2008 7:11 PM EDT

Then let us give melee tanks and mages a "cheap" way to increase their damage in a defensive way to stop from being farmed.

Fair is fair, no?

Yukk June 18 2008 7:32 PM EDT

Well, strats are different. You want a cheap way to not be farmed ?
Buy a ranged weapon and get some ammo.
You don't want to do that ? Oh well. It's your strat.

Brakke Bres [Ow man] June 18 2008 7:38 PM EDT

wow to put melee tanks and mages in one sentence like that is almost...


25k for the next person to finish this.

INDColtsFan18 June 18 2008 7:40 PM EDT

I don't have a problem with it. It seems to be only the top players, and Jon wants to please the whole community not jsut the top, imo. If he did something to help ranger, it would hurt freed, so why not just leave it. Not everyone can be a winner.

"wow to put melee tanks and mages in one sentence like that is almost... "

like putting my wife's underwear in my sock drawer?
