Sounds like the hotspot is unstable.

Yeah, that. >.< Aaaand there’s a 10GB limit on data, but I generally surpass that, anyway.

I will be on periodically, though. I probably will try out the connection ingame now, for a bit.

Topic: Freefall Tournament / Well This Sucks

If anyone’s been wondering where the heck I’ve been (or even that I exist) for the past couple of months, I’ve been doing real life things and have started back school. (I’ll get to the true reason in a sec) I’ve “quit” the game once for a straight up year or so, but I don’t plan on doing that ever again.

Since I’m back at this boarding school for my senior year, I’m on a different type of internet than I was at home, and sadly this connection has bad ports that can’t be modified by anyone besides official campus staff, meaning that connections to some servers aren’t gonna happen. Unfortunately, FFT is one of those servers that the internet here isn’t open for.

To put it simply, I can’t connect to FFT from here regularly. :<

Although, I have a mobile hotspot that I can periodically connect to to play online games, but that’s only so reliable, and it’s against the school’s ToS, and it annoys my hallmates (It causes “connection interference”), so I won’t be using that, a lot, but it does mean that I will be back on sometimes.

Overall, if you’re wondering why the heck I bothered to type this, it’s pretty much to let my friends here know that I’m not dead or retired, and that I plan do still play this game and do community stuff; I just don’t have close to as much time. (Especially to suggest another freaking class).

So yeah, that sucks, but at least I’ll be able to play at all, regardless of how often.

I believe this game can stay up.

I haven’t left by any means.

I’ve been low on time to do anything recently.

I’m surprised things got back on topic remotely.

Even though I sometimes troll people, spamming threads that were meant to have a serious community purpose feels more disrespectful than fun in my opinion.

Instead of looking at this thread negatively, look at it positively.
Try to enjoy people who make troll posts, offend others, and spam in forums. You should even encourage people to give their usernames and passwords of their kongregate accounts.

That literally contradicts what I stand for.

This once-fine thread has already gone past the point of no return; let imbecilic OT rants like this die.

I’m almost done with these forums now. Fucking idiots.

I came from a place where derailed threads got locked far faster than this and were less likely to be derailed.

Seeing an effort to make something nice for the community suddenly burn up in hellfire isn’t a good feeling, to be honest.

So I agree with you GLaDOS :3; pretty much typed what I was thinking, even though I couldn’t bring myself to type it.

I’ll probably make threads far less frequently if people won’t give a crap to at least respect it for its intended purpose.

Ya’know what? I’ll make a new thread right now: a rant one :D

At this point, I’m abandoning this thread; no R4L post, no anything.

Lock, delete, whatever; I just want a mod to get rid of this thing.

Topic: Freefall Tournament / Nerf blazer...

Originally posted by abraaz:

But still, no one thinks that Assasin is Op.

Any class is OP if used by the right person. The reason blazer gets more stick is that the skill ceiling is lower. For instance, if we gave a noob both the assassin & blazer without them using either before they would 9/10 times do better with blazer, by a lot. That’s why people view it the way they do.

This.

Assassin can KO virtually instantly, yes, but just because he can doesn’t mean he’s OP, as it will take a significantly higher level of mastery and skill to be able to successfully pull it off frequently.

Blazer isn’t OP: he’s just really easy to use at his effective range. Just as abraaz said, his skill ceiling is lower; he’s easy to use and master, but has limited possibilities because of that. Of course you’re going to have complaints if you fight a Blazer where he has the advantage while you’re a light such as a Scout. Even then, you can outskill a Blazer with Scout, as Scout is a ninja-type class with a significantly higher ceiling; if you charge in, or try to take him down only at close range, you’re likely going to have a hard time.

I’m not going to necessarily talk about specific strategies, as I personally don’t have many notable fights with Blazers.

However, most of the time I see people complain about Blazers, whether it be here or ingame, they generally get told that they’re mainly playing against them wrong, aka, the way you approach them makes it easier for them to kill you. I’m not necessarily saying this is your case (although some have already said it is), but I’m giving you something to think about along with these other posts.

Hopefully someone posts something that’s on topic soon or else this thread is already for forfeit.

Since I already introduced myself, the main relevant thing I could do now would be to comment on someone else’s intro in some way.

Topic: Freefall Tournament / (Idea) If Desperate Measures are Needed

Either way, in any way that it could be implemented, it’d definitely be reassuring the survival of this game, as ad revenue might be a bit more reliable than income directly from players in this specific game at this time.

Topic: Freefall Tournament / (Off-Topic) The Last Post Wins

The thread was made to pretty much take the brunt of most/all off topic things posted in the forums in general.

I gave it the title “Last Post Wins” with the assumption this thread wouldn’t be locked, so people would just keep posting. I’ve seen it done before in other forums, so I hope this will work the same way.

Topic: Freefall Tournament / (Idea) If Desperate Measures are Needed

So, as you a lot of you may know, this game doesn’t necessarily receive the most money. That’s part of the reason why class rotation is restricted and we’re having such a huge sale on classes after the 2.0 update.

Honestly, some people are gonna complain about the systems and choose not to pay for them. Even then, relying on people alone to pay for things in this F2P game may not be the greatest idea if money is an issue. Some of you aren’t gonna like this suggestion. It might just be able to help, though, if it ever comes to this.

I’m basically suggesting that ads be in the game, for now at least. WAIT! Before you stop reading, there’s a way that the ads could be implemented to be less of an inconvenience to us.

Display ads above the respawn timer only during death.

Think of it as somewhat of an additional “punishment” for dying in the first place. I mean, when you’re dead, you’re not really doing anything anyway, aside from possibly adjusting classes/settings and chatting. I was thinking of having a box for ads (as you see in preloaders) immediately above the respawn button (because there’s a LOT of blank room above it, although it’s mainly for seeing who killed you). The respawn system and what you could do during respawning would possibly have to be tweaked to accommodate, but I think it’d be better to have ads here, rather than have them take up space on menu screens or in between matches.

Don’t like ads in general? Think about it this way.

If FRG is making ad revenue, that’s somewhat of a load off on us as the players. They’d have an additional source of income to go to server costs, which means things such as class rotation could become more liberal again.

It’s a bit of a tradeoff, but it’d be worth it in my opinion. What do you guys think? Would ads in this fashion be worth it since FRG needs the money?

Topic: Freefall Tournament / Class Awards - July 2014

Originally posted by abraaz:

I’ll include it in next months :)

Ah so this competition is monthly.

Why did I have the idea that it was annual. ._.

Anyway, to be completely honest, I’m pretty much a non-ranking newcomer in comparison to the actual pros that stayed here and honed their skills. I look forward to the coming months, and hopefully can get to General (like I should’ve been if I had stayed), and get my skill back up there.

I’ve only got a couple of votes, because I haven’t seen/remembered people for every class/category.

Assassin: DNL
Jack-of-all-trades: CW (Has played and been good at all of the classes I’ve seen him play; dominated me with Bomber in the first few hours of the first day of its release.)
Most Notably Improved: Thenew13
Scout: (Torn between 13 and Scpower, buuuuut) I and my team tend to get dominated more by Scpower than 13, so my vote goes to him for now.

Topic: Freefall Tournament / (Introductions) Who ARE You?

In This Thread: Introduce yourself to new players and allow older players to get to know more about you as an FFT player, Kongregate user, and gamer in general!

I wouldn’t recommend posting anything too personal, though.

I’ll start.

Hi. :3

Okay seriously, I’m LVXYZ, as you can see to the left of this post. If that seems like a mouthful of letters to say, that’s because it is. (To anyone curious, it was my gaming name originally around 6 years ago and is a mix of my first to initials, originally followed by “X”, then later “XYZ” for whatever reason. My actual gaming name everywhere else now is “CryoGX”, which is based on my project, to keep it simple.)

I’m an avid gamer, artist, and music creator who usually stays within his own thoughts. I like to discuss, debate (if within reason), and suggest things when it comes to forums.

I started playing FFT within the first days of its Beta, and stopped for a bit (for whatever reason) and came back a little while after it was out of Beta to see how things were. Then, thanks to real life (nothing problematic), I became busier and forgot about several of the games I’ve been playing (sadly FFT at the time), only playing a couple of games I was dedicated to. Buuuut, as of a month or two ago, after like a year’s abscence, I’m back, hopefully for a far longer time, if not permanently.

Well, that’s what I’ve got; what have you guys got to say?

Topic: Freefall Tournament / (Off-Topic) The Last Post Wins

I’ll go ahead and say this first: I’m pretty skeptical about making this thread.

So, as the name suggests, this is an Off-Topic thread, designed for almost any type of discussion. (This thread is also meant to mitigate the level of off-topic that’s elsewhere). While some people will continue to make off-topic replies to derailed threads, hopefully most people will use this specific thread as their thread for anything FFT/nonFFT related.

One major pointer:

Off-Topic Thread ≠ Troll Thread.

There are still behavioral guidelines to follow, just as in the official Kongregate Off-Topic. This is meant to be a great outlet for all types of discussion, but not a wasteland for trolls to run free.

Check out the behavioral guidelines for Kong here.

With that being said, let the many discussions begin!

Topic: Freefall Tournament / Idea: New forum

I’d personally enjoy a new, more organized forum hosted by FRG, but I don’t think that it’s absolutely imperative that we have one, as some of the things here already fill out the roles that you’ve mentioned, as abraaz pointed out.

I’ve had a few ideas of making threads with the purpose of Introductions, Off Topic, and General Discussion. The Off-Topic idea makes me a bit skeptical, but the overall idea of it would be to have most/all of the trolly behavior around the forum centered into one place that would be meant to contain it all, so it could work.

I’ve got my doubts of FRG having an FFT-exclusive forum (even though I’d like it a lot), so this thread’s inspired me to go ahead and make those other thread types I mentioned to make up for what we somewhat/don’t have.

Topic: Freefall Tournament / EDITED: Who is able to be a MOD?

Holy crap; I can’t believe my name is even in this thread once, especially multiple times. o.o

If I were to become a moderator, I’d probably be stressed out for a bit, but I could definitely manage it for the sake of the community. However, I doubt that I’d be able to become one at all, since this is on Kongregate first. Maybe if FFT’s site got its own forum, but then this one would probably have to be disabled to keep FRG from having to manage 2 forums at once.

Anyway, since I’ve been back, I think there’s a few people who could be mods, whether it be forum or in-game.

CW- Even though I haven’t seen much of him lately, he seems to be an all-round master of the game and has even published a novel on Tanks. He’s pretty mature overall and could be a great moderator when active.

Abraaz – One of the guys that was on my friends list from Beta. I didn’t expect to see much of him after so long, but he’s been around so much of the forums that I sometimes questioned whether or not he actually became a moderator already.

GLaDOS – I mean c’mon, the guy can “play around” with 3D models and make incredibly accurate posts virtually all the time.

DNL – For whatever my opinion’s worth: he is the Assassin. Knows a lot, and is generally fun to play with. (Not saying that none of the others are, either)

Jimmy- Great all-round guy in general!

Padrone- General pro; I could see him as an in-game mod.

I think there’s a couple more, but I can’t quite put my finger on them at the moment.

Overall, I personally could see quite a few people as mods, but don’t think it’d become very possible until FFT has its own forum, which again, would likely mean this one would probably need to be disabled or something to compensate, which seems a bit unnecessary overall.

If you’re going to post here, please let it be somewhat towards the suggestion that I made. Even then, I’d rather see the thread be derailed by general discussion than using it as a completely different thread.

Also guys: I won’t be able to get any art done this weekend; headed to Philadelphia for a family trip.
