Played a bit more yesterday, finally got myself a MAX, shot down a couple gunships, got blown up by three tanks driving over a ridge and all firing at me at once. It was fun.
But the most fun part of that game to me so far is sniping. And I'm not talking about planting my ass down on a high perch and waiting for people to show up, that part is boring. I really enjoyed hunting the other team's snipers down as an Infiltrator. Stealthing around, marking targets, climbing through the mountains to find their perches, then trying desperately to kill them before they notice me shooting and pop my head off in one shot since I'm TR and the default sniper rifle kinda sucks... good times.
Sure, I'm probably not earning many certs or helping my team a whole lot hunting snipers, but at least I'm having fun and annoying the other team. My reflexes suck, so it's not like I'm very useful up-close either.
Trying to argue anything with any sort of nuance over Twitter is the intellectual equivalent of trying to trying to squeeze a cow through a keyhole. Sure, you might even be able to do it with enough brute force, and whatever comes out the other side might even still be considered to be "cow" in the technical sense, but it will be so mangled as to be completely unrecognizable.
anyone elses game broken after update? I just get a black screen and some wierd UI elements flickering on the screen, followed by a crash.
it seems to be only available at certain stations, like the bigger tank variant ;yoy might have to bown a certain point or just spawn at a larger station where it's available. though i think ps2 could have benifited from a breakdown about it's system as sometimes it feels you're just supposed t learn the games systems through trial and error.
another shooter i suck at im not sure why they keep releasing them as its the same ol shoot me shoot you thing plus it kinda reminds me of a mag+battlefield combination
ive only just started and still finding a class i like so i dont waste my certs on a class i hate.
i tend to go for the anti tank class with a rocket launcher but the combat medic and engineer are more my style as im useless at killing people so i stick to keeping people alive or vehicles alive

Certs seem slow for me as a Inf, I have around 60 total. I played about 12 hours total. Maybe I have been in the wrong places at the wrong times, but I'm rank 6 or 7. Or I'm just not killing enough people as a sniper...
You get certs by capturing stations/outposts and you also get certs for getting medals. Medals are earned from getting a certain amount of kills for a weapon. You get certs from leveling up as well.

I'm unable to buy station cash, and I'm not even given a proper explanation on WHY, I just get an error telling me there was an error.
If it won't work, I'm gonna be pretty freaking angry about it, because getting new weapons will be a massive pain. And I want to buy some camo and a helmet.

I am a bit upset it runs so badly on my comp I know my cpus arent great and thats where it tanks, but I have a 6970, its a shame it doesnt use that at all. I play most games on max settings with no problems, but even on lowest settings im around 10-20 in ps2, apart from the ice planet which seems fine. I hope they optimise for GPUs in the future or I wont be able to play for a long time, didnt plan to update my computer for another year or so, as I have run everything at 50+ fps so far on high gfx
mhhh i dont know
was never a shooter fan but love RvR so wanna give this a chance but helll
sometimes i spawn - bam dead and dont know how i died
often i run around and dont know what i have to do or where i have to go (map sux lol) and than bam dead
is there somehow a guide or something like this? how to use this map thingie - whats important etc^^
sry but atm i dont know how someone can have fun with this - for me its hard
Started out Infiltrator, then went Heavy Assault, and now I've fallen in love with the Engineer. I love being able to repair crap, then drop a turret to mow down some incoming enemies.
Have they fixed or given us any development on the EU Steam version yet?
