PostSubject: Tanks, and No Tanks   Thu Jul 22, 2010 11:34 am

I have the distinct impression that the majority of the players on this forum do not appreciate the value of armor on the battlefield nor know how to effectively use or counter it's application (with an exception for the "Rocket Man"). As a result rather than admit their inadequacy they instead tend to discredit and mock those that are successful in the tactical use of armor.

I tend to wonder what would Master Yoda have to say on that subject...

"A cheap/noob/jerk in a tank I am, and afraid too you will be, you will be". Yoda

Personally I like tanks but only when there used correctly. I hate it when people just spawn kill with tanks throughout the entire map. But on maps like Yavin tanks arent over used as much and on Kashyyyk I think the speeders could stay on the battlefeild.

Spawn killing in general is frowned upon, but spawn killing is not limited to tanks. Any infantry class can spawn kill. There are no tanks on the Death Star and it's a spawn killing party.

It's not an inadequacy to want to play as a different unit. Plus, the ways to counter tanks is very limited. I don't like using tanks because it takes the fun out of battling face to face with another player, or having tough sniping battles with the enemy. I know tanks are powerful, but in a game like this, yeah they are kinda cheap.

I tend to dislike tanks, but they don't annoy me to the point where I'll stop playing a certain map because of them. There just another challenge in the game. I usually switch to the rocket class when there's too many around, or I'll just stay closer to my teammates who are using rockets. If not then I'll just run, I usually am able to get away or get the tank destroyed in some string of crazy events. But they can be very annoying if you have a good kill-streak going as an engineer, sniper, or grunt, as they can end it very quickly if you aren't able to escape.

I don't want to play as a rocket and suicide mine all map. If SWBF2 tanks were the same as SWBF1, I'd be less mad over tank whores

Then that is your choice, your "preference". Why deny the cheap, noob, jerk, tank whores their preference just because it gives them an advantage over yours? Why handicap one group of players just to accommodate another's preference? Isn't that kind of cheap in itself?

hehehe I notice you keep throwing in the "jerk" reference. innocent
Don't get me wrong, I don't think someone is a jerk for using tanks. Only the guy that uses one to kill me! Cool

Let's face it, the Sho is not hard to kill. Most maps I'm happy to finish with a 1:1 kills to deaths ratio.
So if I'm "attempting" to snipe on Kashyyyk with my sub-10% accuracy and some guy gets into a tank to run me down, he's a friggin jerk! And he just guaranteed that I'll be using rockets, specials, and heroes to hunt him down for the rest of the map!
lol!
