Topic: Freefall Tournament / About rank and skill

In my opinion skill and rank are different things, as anyone of a low rank can be good and those of a high rank can be bad, all the rank shows is their time spent in the game and possibly the amount of wins they have are reflected in it.

Skill is noticeable as to the difference in each player some containing more and others less so, possibly due to knowledge of their class, the game, their aim and ability to kill players of a similar or higher skill according to what you/the player thinks consistently.

Rank and skill tend to be acted as if you have to have one if you have the other for example: “you have a high rank therefore your skill must make me think you are one” and a similar thing the other way around: “to me you are skilled, you should have a higher rank already”.

It makes sense to me as to why people think that yet at the same time i think that rank shouldn’t matter to people in terms of ‘helping’ define someones skill.

Topic: Freefall Tournament / Labyrinth

According to this it is coming out in the second half of 2015, Other sites for info and knowledge are in this thread.

Side note: ever since hearing the name it has reminded me of this game.
It makes me wonder if they got the inspiration for the name from this board game or from something else they happened across on the internet or in real life.

Topic: Freefall Tournament / Developer please stop abusing your power to filter or lock any post

this is just my opinion but This forum is about the game, if we posted about the game whether it is something like our favourite map or part of the game while we had a few topics purely to having a friendly chat or having a bit of fun about then it wouldn’t be so bad…

There will be people we won’t get along with but that shouldn’t stop us from putting aside our differences to help give useful information and or our own version of events without being mean towards them, the forums are for everyone, not just those who speak up on here.
Seeing people fight between each other isn’t going to make people want to play if they saw it and based their opinion of the game off of people interactions here.
If you truly have a problem with them, take it off of the forum, this is a place for fun and learning not for squabbles between people, the Messaging system exists for a reason.

I love this community and from those i have met you are all nice people in your own way, why can’t we share our love for the game with those who want to learn and improve as well as those who don’t want to, we can make this forum a nice place to be.
If we exercise some self restraint and use it as a forum instead of our personal dumping ground it would be a hell of a lot better, not just for us as we would have a few threads for nonsense and fun but FRG as it would be easier to manage and the forum would look a lot tidier plus people probably wouldn’t be getting their posts taken down as often.

The community is what makes the forum, if we can’t make it a nice place to be for everyone then it shouldn’t be here for us.

I like to think we all care about the game, i just don’t see it when we use the forums like this.

Topic: Freefall Tournament / Hero Balance

If they nerfed the tanks neutron shell duration the same amount for Assassins debuff stacks it might work, keeps the balance between assassin and tank but would make it harder for newer players to learn/get to grips with assassin. Tank wouldn’t change that much in learning to use it.

Nerfing Neutron shell other than the duration, possibly a slight debuff say 5% damage recieved increase after its use to make it seem that while you gain the invulnerability the shield drains your suit temporarily leaving you more susceptible to damage
afterwards. debuff would last 2-4 secs.

I like idea of disallowing multiple aegis stacking, sounds like it would promote team play and have a wider variety of strategies if they chose mass shockers.

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

I like the idea but with each pro there is a con. while i agree that having an additional source of income would greatly help FRG with server costs and lessen the impact on that part, most adverts are in gif form as well as having the ability to link and would have to be loaded each time. That would impact on the ability to play the game in the first place which could reduce the player base that come play it daily thus reducing potential income through people buying skins and heroes etc…

For those who die rather often and/or get the long respawn times it could become more and more annoying as you keep getting these ads in your face when you didn’t want to and just want to play a game.

How would it work if someone was to click on said advert/link? would it be able to load without taking you out of full screen or just deal with it and then have some trouble clicking back on the game if your computer is not all that fast and have a chance of being disconnected. Also having it right above the respawn button someone is likely to click it if they aren’t paying attention.

If it didn’t impact highly on the server load or the players ping when they load i don’t see why we can’t have them in the death screen as long as it isn’t completely in our faces (as in visible but not in the center of the screen).

I like the idea as i said yet right now i don’t think it can be done given the amount of players that play this game daily and the amount of deaths that happen during gameplay over the course of a day.

the last i remember of playing with him he seemed responsible enough to me, that may have changed in the time since i have seen him or he is not as i remember and then isn’t one of the best people to be an in-game mod.

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

I think being an in game moderator is likely to take away from peoples enjoyment of the game and/or likely to get some hate from the community overall, the people i have met on this game and are friends with are not going to in my opinion but there will likely be some assuming the name of the in game moderator is known.

my choices are based on those who i think will be best at it:

Forum mods:

Abraaz, CombatWaffles, Darkninjalucian, Kelfer Edit Gexsiun (i forgot your name ooopsies)

In-game mods:

Trollingknight, Waver, LVXYZ, Padrone1987, Eternal_wolf, xco100. (just a few names as there are more than i can think of in my mind)

found a bug with assassins Spectral cloak or the triangles that show which team they are on.

Whenever an enemy assassin goes invisible i can still see the triangle above their head which shows their team, which also gives away their location.

Topic: Freefall Tournament / Update speculation

What do people think this update will do to the mass support thing that happens in games?
That is my worry right now.
As each new support comes out i feel like the defense becomes infinitely easier and then breaking that defense becomes that much harder.
it can be easy enough with the right coordination yet quite a lot of the time i feel there isn’t.

I wish FRG will add the mode the same as the Spiral Knights Lockdown (I don’t know the specific name)

Also, the amount of damage the player made will appear after the match (Just like in SK)

Only SK players will understand this…

I believe the gametype is called Zones , and would be an interesting addition to the scoreboard yet i am not sure a majority of players will enjoy having that knowledge.

The saboteur is also a good name =) and it is one or the other.
One reduces the moral thereby decreasing efficiency, the other sabotages the equipment to make it less efficient. i just liked the Demoralizer better =)

Abraaz i should have gotten round to it sooner i just couldn’t think of a decent idea… plus i was busy procrastinating =P

Topic: Freefall Tournament / The New Class for Freefall

i don’t think the Hp is right, true you have got less shield than all of the other classes yet to have 18.75 times the amount of health of a tank means you could get within close to mid range of any player regardless.

Edit:

Also your damage values are insane now ^^ 5k dps with Wicked Tech claws

ETB – yeaah i forgot to add what is its ammo limit before it has to reload, also with the explosion you can kill a tank in 1 shot iirc.

BC – 5 tanks in the middle dead to almost one on the outside.

Pounce – way too much dmg per hit and tick with a recharge rate around the same as reload for any other classes fbomb.

Sadist shaft – better yet still ridiculous =)

Topic: Freefall Tournament / Please Just Stop

1) Advice and guides are not bad things, misleading information or information based off of your way of playing isn’t the best way to teach someone a class as everyone is different.
True there has been the odd thread yet mostly it is a thread that starts off to do with the game and then gets derailed.
There was no need to bring this up a third time maybe? the first and second i can understand somewhat yet now this is a useless thread also.

2) The majority from what i have seen are being mean yet it isn’t without reason though they may go too far sometimes (personal opinion), but you have not exactly been welcoming either in this very post you accused everyone of being a maniac.

3) You have said so on many an occasion. may i inquire as to what your main account was called? maybe people have heard of it before.

4) posting frequently is not a problem for me as long as it is playful or contains useful info and generally contained to one or two posts per other person.

If you didn’t seek a fight you shouldn’t have made this thread. It just looks like you are trying to instigate one in my opinion.

Apologies for the long reply, i am a bit bored myself at the moment.
