What are objectives?

Its what you aim the catapult at no matter what


I do think some people are too quick to say that their team isn't going after the objective. Like, take a look at the kill score first before saying that, sometimes your team is just getting murdered

The real trick to topping the scoreboards is to do the objectives. Building a ladder is worth 5 assists and there are 2-6 ladders on most objective maps. And the best part is people still haven't figured out how to build them! (realtalk this is a major fault of the game, the opacity of objectives)

Only just the other day I found there are some ladder pieces to pick up during one of the "Capture the bridge" objectives, but have no idea where the hell they're supposed to go. I don't think they're ever mentioned in any way in the game.

The *real* trick to topping scoreboards is using the war horn which gives you 300-500 points pretty regularly :toot:

How do you stand up after you fill the meter? My screen keeps saying "press left gamepad face to stand up" but I have no gamepad.

It's genuinely this - I come top in 90% of the games I play.

Just kick around, steaming people on the objective and horn at bottlenecks on the front line.

Game is still good, and while I'm loving all the classes, I must say I've got a soft spot for the javelin thrower and the ambusher with the throwing daggers. It's fun to use the throws to secure some kills on people who are near death.

So what's the handiest tool for easily clipping all these .mp4s to size? I have all these 30 second instant replay clips, and I was considering breaking out the proper video editor to make some kind of montage video, but surely there's something more convenient if I wanna just snip the relevant 10 second part out and stick it in imgur.

Did you check it to upload with audio? Iirc by default it does it with just the video track

Hrm, no I did not. Apparently this option only exists when using the New Post button on the top left. I normally upload my stuff by going to my gallery page and just dragging and dropping things there. Another mystery solved.

Just a couple general :black101: moments to test things out.
And I only just now realised that the last guy in the second clip wasn't even my kill, he got nailed by an arrow a split second before I took his head off.

So many people playing the vip forget the single most important thing a vip can do thatís critical and irreplaceable to the success of the stage: constantly holler to raise the morale of your team. Always Be pressing C

Second most important thing: Grab a shield. Not because it keeps you alive longer (though it does), but because then C makes you bang your weapon against it for extra morale! :black101:

Little known fact, you don't have to hit the doors of those cages to break them, the entire cart is a hitbox.

Yeah, you can often beeline to the furthest cage at spawn, get behind it and open it at least most of the way before the second or third spawn wave notices you. In that match we also had archers throwing up their pavises and spike traps along the sides to help. So many places on that map where you can wall off an objective with just a few players replenishing fortifications and make it nearly impossible to get through.

Don't worry, wooden walls (and spikes) seem to self destruct after a certain amount of time. Boy is that always a rude surprise for the defenders :v:

Rear cart feels nearly indefensible if it is out the starting gate. So far as my track record of smashing the rear of the cart while people chase me around hitting me expecting me to turn around and fight them instead of break cages goes.
