Topic: Ballistic / Vote Kick Abuse

I’ll admit this has me a bit miffed too, but the worst part is that when I encounter a legitimate hacker (One hit kills at distance with a Blackjack, no headshot and full health) and start a vote kick, people don’t care enough to vote either way. The kick gathers maybe 1-2 votes and then dies.

Why on my statistics page I see my rank, now 526, and wins 0 – losses 1 ? Just after the new system I have played one single free for all and I think I won. I had 14/0 with score over 400 and I was on 1st place. Being on first still counts as loosing?

In FFA, winning is getting last place.

That seems rather stupid, doesn’t it?

Topic: Ballistic / DONT NERF SHADOW, STOP NERFIN HIM!!!!!!!!

I can’t even read this whole post so I’m just going to disregard your entire tirade and say that Shadow nerfs are always going to be touchy. This time they just altered the way melee attacks work, but all it’s done is just changed the general playstyle for a melee-based shadow.

Topic: War of Omens / Please remove or change the "Win X Games in a Row" Daily Quests

The only time I complain about this is when it asks me to do this with a faction I don’t have a good deck for. Any difficulty with any faction is just free silver, X difficulty with any faction is just more free silver, but X difficulty with X faction? Those can be a pain in the ass.

Funny thing is, that quote comes from me… talking about the Vanguard’s grenade launcher.

I quoted Main’s statement from the VG discussion because it’s relevant here. If I shoot an oncoming shadow in the face with a grenade from T3, he either dies or doesn’t die and then kills me, depending on whether or not he has armor.

That’s the way it was, and it was replaced by the 1-15, 16-30 system we have now.

Also T3 grenade launcher can only 1-shot shadows and wraiths (without armor) while the t4 grenade launcher can 1shot more classes with higher hp (considering if you have the 15% more damage skill). Also t4 has way better firerate which can save your Grenadier ass way more.

With damage upgrades the t3 can one-shot everything w/o armor (except for maybe tanks)

Two shots is an instant kill to a non-armored opponent, which is easy to find now due to the inflated armor prices..

We need the grenade launcher for credits or not the class is useless..T4 Grenade launcher.We know that the old players who have come here to buy that 15k grenade launcher before,but pls do consider the new players in ballistic:)Hopefully admin sees this.

T3 launcher is plenty. Sure I’d like a T4, but the only difference between the two is ammo capacity and very slight differences in power.

Actually no, he’s a PR

Besides Jim (Producer), Brett (Community Manager) is our most reliable lead for the future of Ballistic.

So Brett’s the reason I die forever alone?

The closest I have had to experiencing the Died Forever Alone message is my friend who just ‘suddenly’ died forever alone.

Is it a moderation trick? Was I playing with a moderator who didn’t approve of my conduct?

Topic: Ballistic / You just died forever alone

Whilst in a 16- match, I was killed by a Katana-wielding Shadow and promptly responded by insulting him using an… offensive name. Immediately after respawning I died with the message " Died forever alone". I’m mystified as to what happened because I can’t replicate it using an identical message and was unaware that one could die this way.

ARMOR LASTS FOR 3 DAYS GUYS e.e"

Read the description before you go off and pout about how unfair it is (though, 5k for three days is really expensive)

That’s been gone over several times. 3day armor has replaced 1match armor and while it may be proportionally expensive, it’s not worth it for the casual player who doesn’t spend all their free time playing the game.

You’ve made 3 day armor purchasable with credits, but that’s replaced the single-match credit. It’s no longer feasible to buy armor because 5k credits does not come easy in 3 days.

Topic: War of Omens / voted on steam as asked, but got no reward

Originally posted by yeasy:

To be honest. I didn’t vote, becouse I’ve no steam account & I don’t want to create one.
I got 500 silver.

yeah, the problem with games asking for votes on other places such as FB, Twitter, and even Steam is that there’s no way to track whether you’ve actually voted or not. So people can just click the button and receive rewards.

We’re not contesting why it’s not popular, we’re contesting that it was popular in the first place.

Topic: Ballistic / Skill Conflict Question

Originally posted by immember:

So, the skill Cold-Blooded means you will not show up on radar. The skill Smart Aim/Bullets means that when you zoom in/hit someone, they are on your radar for the next several seconds. Which one takes precedence?

Also, does radar also mean that mark that appears on top of other’s heads?

The mark shows above their heads and the rest of your team can see their name and position on the map. As far as not showing up on radar, I think Cold Blooded takes precedence and makes you virtually immune to that effect.

Don’t forget the ridiculous reload time. So a shadow is running straight at me and the guy has to keep loading all 6 grenades. C’mon let me stop loading after 1 grenade to shoot

Hey, bud, you know that sidearm you spent 7500 on? Yeah, now’s a good time to pull that out and work that trigger finger.
