OH WOW! Have I shoehorned my INCREDIBLY BORING story about how I met James Corden at the Greggs at Chievely services on the M4 into this thread yet? Of course I have because that's LITERALLY the most interesting thing about me.

PLEASE TELL ME (and James Corden) TO EAT SHIT

also and this is more a product of pubbing too much, give every class who can some stupid minor thing when you hit a survey beacon. they don't all need to be as powerful as path's obviously but pubbie pathfinders actually ping beacons without extensive wrangling. half an ult accel effect. something.

so for once was useful and people over there organised a large gathering on may 1st to play tf2, to show Respawn that tf2 players care and want tf3 and we're not just making GBS threads on apex.
So, if anyone wants to enjoy some hawt tf2 action, hop on in may 1st. Will be fun.

Re: the patch notes, I was sorta expecting them to get rid of sniper stocks and instead just having every weapon use the same stock. No, I'm not bitter about only ever finding sniper stocks.

it's fine unless you want to advance in platinum ranked, ping system handles 95% of cases so you don't feel obligated to VC, pubs surprisingly tend to be non-toxic for an FPS

I think you’d have more fun with goonfriends than solo matchmaking with randos.

It's more than fine for duos or trios if you don't want to sweat. It will get harder solo in comp since the lobbies will have more 3 stacks grinding the further up the ladder you go.

It's fine. I'd much rather play apex solo than just about any other FPS I can think of. It can still get frustrating at times because it is very common to have teammates that die immediately and leave the game without giving you any chance to get them back up, but eh. Queue times are super fast, if the game sucked you go again.

The ping system is great and was designed with no mic usage in mind, so even with randoms you can have a decent enough level of communication.

If you told me at launch that I'd have the best round of my entire playtime as Gibraltar maining the Mozambique, I would have laughed at you. But that's exactly what happened this season, thanks to hammerpoints!

yea she looks ridiculous, and the lead dev posted on reddit recently that he thinks they've got her coming in maybe too strong

also seems they learned from rampart, she's the lowest pick legend and going forward they want to bring legends in too strong if not balanced; old discussions about tuning for monetization aside it does appear that it's probably better to release new characters in games too strong then dial back than too weak which kills them from getting traction with the community

I love rampart, but why would anyone want to play her, when the last 3 legends have AoE specials?

That only works if you actually do the dialing back in a reasonable timeframe, otherwise you end up with one legend being absolutely dominant for two whole seasons.

Rampart is secretly top tier, but good luck ever getting your hyperactive random squadmates to ever slow down and use the walls instead of running after every gunshot noise until they get 9th partied.

She also hugely benefits from having a Gibraltar teammate for making forward bases once poo poo goes down, or a Caustic teammate to dissuade people from zombie rushing your barriers.

competent squads will just instantly delete the amped cover, then all you're left with is ankle high cover

Ra Ra Rasputin
Apr 2, 2011


While the amped cover can and should be destroyed whenever possible, that is still time they are exposing themselves to waste ammo and reload time on a object you can just keep throwing out or stacking a second wall directly behind it and in extreme late game circles it can get to the point where you might not have the ammo to waste on something that is costing the other team no resources except a short cooldown.

Her wall is nice but her passive and ult suck compared to the legends that actually break the game with theirs.

The passive is alright in a meta where spitfire is the most popular gun.

Had a ridiculous round in Duos tonight, with me and zomborgon getting 13 kills between us and me nabbing the final kill.

This sounds very impressive if not for the fact that, like, 9 of those kills were basically us getting stumbled on by another team, barely winning that teamfight, then while healing back up asking each other "do you think anybody's going to go chasing after the sounds of our gunfight?" The answer was always yes, and always like 30 seconds after the last fight until the second to last ring, where the rest of the teams decided to just kinda camp. Except, well, badly.

The second-to-last team fight happened when zombo got domed by a kraber and the other team decided to rush our position. But they were way on the other side of the ring and they hesitated just long enough for me to pick him up and for him to use a phoenix kit, so that ended poorly for them.

The last team fight was basically me and zombo going, well, we're out of the final ring and there's just one hut, and there's no way the last team isn't there so let's just go say hi and see how things shake out.

It still took like a full minute despite the very small building and me knocking down one of the last people on the other team right away thanks to me faffing about and the last player, a Horizon, being kind of annoying to track down while she bounced around the hut.

On paper our stats looked very impressive and no footage exists to demonstrate just how clownshoes that entire round actually was.

A free custom title is a free custom title



Lipstick Apathy

me and my friends managed to climb into Diamond, and since there's no rank demotions, we've just been queuing in ranked to just... be kinda shitlords. We'll join a hot drop, locate someone who splits off from their party, and then all land on the guy and punch him to deathbox. Then we either hang around to fight or flee with our lives.

It's a bit of trolling on random poor sods but at the same time the trade off is that we're easy targets and basically 3 free RP kills/assists if someone manages to take us out.

Anyways, to cap off season 8, in one of our last games for the night, we unwittingly land on TSM ImperialHal's team (we are attracted to Predator trails) and mug the poo poo out of his teammate Baronful. We had a great time laughing about it, but then I went to go checkout Baronful's stream to grab his POV clip... but he turns out to be a wholesome streamer so now I have been converted into a fan.
