Okay, hi guyz.

This is PJ/Toretto/Pandamanium. I have been playing with you guys quite a bit recently. Sometimes playing well, sometimes sucking it up. Usually sucking it up. I've been playing since 1998 when this game came out, whether it this mod or another - so I've played with you guys in the past, just some of you may not remember me or realize it. I played TR with many of you, and was in a couple ladders under smurfs I don't even remember. I basically just chase, and am pretty good at it. However, a year or so ago I would get picked in pu's to home d because I am decent with flag.

I, however, have trouble LOing obviously. I'd like to get picked in pu's more often; I'm a decent player. I just need help figuring out the position that I seem to get assigned most of the time when I get picked in a pu. LOing. Other times, I captain and chase - which usually equates to at least 16-20 cks, good defense. I realize that Loing isn't that hard, I just need to get used to it and it will help if I get a few tips. I know I'll get trolled hard for this - but I'm sick of getting yelled at after pu's because I know damn well I'm good at tribes.

So basically - chasing and home d, I have down. I just need to figure out LO and eventually capping. I'm not a bad capper, just have to figure out quick routes and timing.

I'll stfu now.

Thank you.

lol do not worry about anything ppl just gonna vent after a bad game cuz its time invested

but every1 knows bottom line is it's a team game

it used 2 be a lot easier to get good at a new position when u culd join a team and play against ppl at a similar level to you


fuk the guides etc they r really rigid and will just **** u up

just try different **** till u figure out something that works

Thank you dare.

I will continue to do what I'm doing, hopefully I catch on to other positions eventually. Doesn't seem to be room for anymore chasers.

actually it wuld be sweet to have more high level chasers cuz i bet some doods do not want to play it as much

the thing about that position tho is it is easy to stat whore it and ppl really like doods 2 pressure with it

Here's a tip: stop playing 14 year old dead games and get a life.

king guide to LO:

shoot the home
distract/clear when cappers are about to grab (press c and time it)
be near flag for e-grab
shoot the escort always first
do not run routes, just go there and make good decisions
reset with ur cappers and suicide

do not do dumb ****

If u want to win and maybe not look good, just freaking kill the home d over and over on standoffs.

u won't get blamed 4 anything if u win

if ur going up against a good home, u can try just damaging him and not confronting plus camp more on those types

n e LO who tries to duel me usually ends up 11/35 and losing
some LO will stay away from me and camp all game, that is actually more of a pain 2 deal with because it makes finishing a standoff harder

ski to base, cg ratatatata use grenade like potato make home D look at you when capper make ski and then shot.
haev always eye on commander. do not look to chasers if he at full healing.
alwasy go to home D. make home D away from stand so u not die and capper flag.
capper come in and die and flag of your home is on grabb stay alive and emergenci grab.
if you die u dead. no grab, bad game.
if you before caper try to hide and use u spamgun for effect.
always.

Yeah, so basically as an LO - here are the mistakes I've made and been yelled at for:

chasing carrier rather than home d or escort (easy fix)
Not clearing at right time with cappers (need to look at map or figure out communication better)

I'll hopefully be able to adjust and get better. I wanna get picked and play, so I'm going to try to get decent at every position. So any pubs I play, I'll be practicing capping because I have chasing and home D pretty much down and LO is an easy fix. I have a lot of experience playing TR (which has helped my flag holding and passing ability on home D), so I should be able to adjust to capping quickly. I used to be pretty decent at capping back in the day.

I typically am a smart chaser, however I probably stat whored a bit last night because I'm trying to break through the pu pickability barriar. I now understand better that the score doesn't matter much. I'll hop on tonight if there are pu's, hopefully I'll have a better feel of everything. I've already figured out what I've been doing wrong LOing - I need to time it with the cappers better, which means I need to be more patient.

Thank you for this. Whatever tid-bits I was able to pull out of this certainly helped. I will have to ask you to teach me tribe language at different time.

Like 6 or so years ago I compiled a recording of all the basic routes that anyoneneeds to know for most of the maps played. Like I said that really is only like half of what you need to know to cap but it's a start. Let me know if you want it I'll see if I can find it.

btw, would it be a huge improvement for me to get 1.40?

I've tried it in the past, but have played worse with it - but over time would I be better off, once I get used to it? Currently, I just have basic original tribes setup, w/e that is... 1.1 or idk.
