This is starting to get super-annoying. IT’s been two days of this.

are you sure you are not looking at the def form? there is one for OFFENSE en DEFENSE, and you should use both!

I specifically said “BOTH offense and defense”?

Why would they devote even two hours to updating or recoding cards that gives them no recompense.

The only reason they would is to make nice with players for their next game. But they’ve already burned their card audience with TU. So why would they bother with this audience anymore?

I suppose you believe that the two upcoming raids aren’t going to happen,either?

Whatever might have already been coded and uploaded before they killed the game, sure. Why not just hit the button on that. But soliciting ideas and then paying someone to put them online? Probably not.

I played Avengers Alliance for YEARS on the playdom website until they killed the game. I’ve seen what happens when developers stop caring about things. The Playdom staff weren’t even going to transfer paying accounts to FB, but the high-pay players had to SCREAM to have that happen. And you think Synapse is going to do much to make your last months here fun? Not likely.

NO PISTOL SHOULD HAVE A 30 LONGSHOT CONTRACT. PERIOD.

Topic: Contract Wars: General / Suggestions and tips

I wouldn’t mind a revamp of less useful skills like “aiming concentration” before I spent hundreds of thousands of CR to reset my tree just to get rid of it. It’s potentially good, but in gameplay it doesn’t add anything at all. And costs 6 SP.

Any chance they could revisit some of the less-useful skills in the game. I wouldn’t mind a revamp of “aiming concentration” before I spent hundreds of thousands of CR to reset my tree just to get rid of it.

Topic: Contract Wars: Weapons / Unbreak Veresk SPN or buy MP7 SKK task?

They’re both really solid guns, but it really comes down to money. If you get a good discount, and you don’t mind spending 5 or 10 bucks on what essentially is a digital item useless to your broader life, I’d go with devgru.

EDIT: good point. In the case of perming Veresk vs just buying the regular MP7 task, I’d say perm veresk. It’s a good bet.

To be honest if i could choose to get P90 Devgru or unbreak my Veresk,both for free,i would choose the Veresk.
I know my opinion is very unique,but if you play around with this gun for quite a bit you will start to notice how it can outgun any other SMG with ease.The only advantages Devgru has over Veresk are higher accuracy and lower recoil.

To be accurate: WAY higher accuracy, and WAY less recoil.

Just please stop about 7SP. I can even make more SP with contracts. I only want the answer. AS VAL MOD 3 or ACR-C SOCOM?

People are answering your question with the best information and opinions they have. Maybe you want to be a little less mouthy and a little more thankful.

Topic: Contract Wars: General / ACR-C or AS VAL MOD 3

I think the real question isn’t ACR vs Val. It’s “is what you gain from Val worth more than the 6 SP you lose”. For example, if you set up your skill tree right, you could pick between either Hearing 1 and Hearing 2, or AS Val. In that case, I think the weight would probably tip towards ACR and Hearing skills. Or Gunsmith silencer damage skills, for example.

You can’t learn any martial art half-assed. You take a few classes a week, for half a year, then you decide whether you want to stay. You don’t “pick up 1 or 2” like they were pokemon cards.

Removing all my old classes and making the initial class (tank) suck balls. Really great strategy! I’ll be enjoying not playing this game anymore.

The BEAR troops sat quietly, each tense with the effort of trying to relax, and none willing to break the bubble of silence that surrounded them. To speak would be to admit they were alive, that they were flying through the dark night under an old propeller, and that they would certainly die soon. Sarge hefted his KAC PDW rifle, and caressed the safety switch. The enamelled paint had been worn off by countless rubs against his gloved finger. A printed label near the bottom of the weapon proclaimed “447/500”. None of the men knew what would happen at 500. Most suspected absolutely nothing at all.
“Remember boys, this is the crucible of destiny. Once we take that old lighthouse, the abandoned observatory and that funny thing with the pipes and the trucks, all Europe will be ours”.
The men didn’t put much stock into Sarge’s tactical plans.
“Sarge, I’m ok with storming seeming worthless buildings at random, but we hear that BEAR troops have….. diplomats.” Young Branzino whispered the name of the legendary rifle like a fearful caress.
“Nonsense, those things are expensive. Soldiers don’t have much money.”
All the troops had read the New York Times article, “Huge GP deposits found in former Russian republic”. Now that the GP mines were up and running, BEAR had access to a trove of clandestine funds.
“Even if they do,” thundered Sarge, “it’s not the GUN that makes the man, it’s the man that makes the gun. And I’ve spent years honing your skills. You can run faster crouched over than any human being should need to, and your guns break less. You can even flex your eyes an extra little bit, although that particular skill is pretty worthless.” At this point, the Sarge coughed loudly with a guttural, phlegmy sound that sounded like “DEVS! DEVS!”
They strapped on their guns, and clipped in the holographic sights they had worked hard to earn. The body of the chopper sank to the ground.
“Remember boys, a man doesn’t need great guns to dominate. He just needs to run side to side real fast, jump lots, and swivel almost constantly to check behind him”.
Sarge and the boys rushed the field, and almost instantly the first of the deadly accurate volley from the BEAR troops’ unbelievably expensive guns ripped through their flesh. They squinted, and saw blobs that might have been men, outlined by muzzle flashes from their infinitely better weapons.
“It’s… kind of… the gun too” Sarge woefully admitted, as his guts slid out of his body like lazy slugs.

The soldiers sat in a full circle, equidistant from each other, careful to look at the ground in front of them to avoid the vast expanse of flat sky that stretched from them: featureless and grey. There were twenty, then there were nineteen, then eleven, then for a second there were twenty again.
“Why” said one with a beige ballcap
“There’s no why” said another “just try to forget the feeling and wait for next time”
One came back, weeping softly. “I got knifed twice, one after another” he whispered.
“You were VIP?” said a man with the sides of his head shaved
“Yeah” said his identical twin.
“Try to forget. It won’t help you to remember when we respawn”
“This is hell, right? I wonder what we did to be here.”
“There’s no why”.

Thanks for widening my question to things I didn’t ask about. As a grown-up type person, I think I’ll be okay.

Getting a raptor upgrade alone would be worth it, since I’ve been buying phobos packs for weeks, with NO RAPTOR at all.
