I approach you from the front and you're kinda like "wow this dude's pretty serious."

Then I walk away and you're like "damn he likes to party. with two R's."


This is like the 6th time he has declared he is done with the game. It's best just to not pay attention.

I didn't pay attention to him when he played with me. He never listens in mumble, talks over us, rages about poo poo that doesn't matter, runs in to the whole team (I've done it too), rages about poo poo that doesn't matter, yells constantly, rages about poo poo that doesn't matter and well, it's Rirse. No one will miss him.

In Rirsese, "poopsocker" means someone who is better than him at a game. How Dare They.

I wish I better understood how one plays Beth well, rocket launchers are so neat.

I don't think its so bad. The two days that I've been playing with goons, I'm like 10-1. Haven't seen any "poopsockers" even playing with pubs.

If he's been playing for a while, that isn't much time. Beta has been going on since September or so.

There is a core group of players that are reaching hour 600.

To explain Megabeth's name:

If you are familiar with the little roller derby phenomenon, each girl on a team will come up with a pun name that sounds tough or plays on an established "tough" word. You'll get the given ones like Miss Fortune, She-Devil, and Iron Maiden but you'll find some special ones like Miss Andry and Danger Mouse.

So if you look at it from the context that Uber was going for, MegaBeth IS a perfect play on the band Megadeth that fits the theme of a roller derby girl picking a punny name to inspire fear into her enemies.

Yeah but if you look at her bio it says her last name is actually Megabeth, so I guess she didn't have to try very hard to make a punny name.

Nothing turns me into a raging sperglord like getting hit with a long-range attack like a Sniper or a CG laser or a claw because one of my teammates was standing next to me and I was bumping into them and not actually getting out of the way.

Ha, I've had enough allies bodyblock me when I had full aggro from FireBases/Kitties to know how you feel.

Same with Defenders you're burning in front of for three seconds straight and they don't heal you. It really sucks.

She's a Japanese roller derby clone. Her surname is Saitama, her given name is MegaBeth. It's still silly, but you know, this is a game with a reverse cyborg.

Is there any particular gameplay reason allies block each other? I would much prefer a TF2 style enemies block, allies don't system.

It'd be really broken if people could just walk behind their allies when they get hurt enough, with enforcers being twice the size of most other pros. There's also some positives such as blocking veteran grabs, but I imagine the main reason is stuff like commandos being able to just roll past allies. It'd be pretty hard to chase down a good commando if allies could block pursuers with a wall of pros without the commando having to do any work to get around. It's basically the same reason why MOBAs have collision with both allies and allied creeps.

Speaking of Megabeth, does anyone have some advice for playing her? I just made enough coins I buy her the other day and I've been playing her a bit, but she's not quite clicking for me yet. In particular, The rocket launcher feels kind of weird- I think it's cause the rockets themselves move so slow and don't feel like they have a lot of splash to them, so maybe I just have to get used to it.



Shoot her rockets straight up in the air and use right click laser guidance to paint someone so they come straight down on top of them so they can't dodge or see them coming.

Also do this to destroy turrets that are behind the glass walls.

Or shoot the annihilator from your spawn on the jungle map.

Or any turret from the ledges on the cola map.

Because that's the way it is in MOBAs where you can actually see 360 degrees around you, and it's just another thing they took without thinking how it would translate to an FPS.

It still has the same range, but instead of being X seconds on vacuum, you grab a single coin every quarter of a second. It *may* be better - but I feel the change is mostly to stop screwing over your team by never letting them get a coin ever thanks to its incredibly suction.

Asbest-Os is a great Hot Hands cancellation and it kinda ruins the Tank's main weapon.

What exactly does Bot Buster do? What's a bot rating and why do I want it higher? I've never heard the term before.

Weapons do specific damage to specific targets. Bot rating would increase damage done to bots.

The types of damage things have include Bots, Pros and Turrets. When you hit 'b' and are selecting skills some areas will show your ratings.

So huge Megabeth nerfs, fairly major gunslinger/sniper nerfs (thank god), a little support nerf, cheston tradeoff that seems like a bit of a nerf, veteran tradeoff that seems like a nice buff, and some rad new stuff.

And actual stage descriptions in the pro selection screen!

Wonder how the money magnet thing will work out now.

Cheston isn't really a nerf, they just made his max spread higher, proper Chestons use bust fire anyway, so its fine. Added Health and damage.
