    AP brought the EUR style over to NA, only to have Megamoo buy 7 stingers and other assorted equipment for the team. The transcript on vent was hilarious. Fun game and we did get Navy, DSM, and MoH.

    Yeah, how I got silver and or any other medal is beyond me, game turned into one giant joke a thon, not sure how we won... But it worked. Despite the "presents" from moo, I'd like to thank Ghost and the EUR server players for letting me play with them and showing some of their tactics and why they do them.

    You Euros play hell of a boring notd. I don't care how savvy it is for getting medals. I'd rather be down in front meeting my enemies head on with my flamethrower.

    ^ This

    It also wreaks hell on an active Surveillance Recon who flares for his team.

    Maybe AP can show us the NA style too at some point so we can see what we are missing :)

    Well played

    Hmm? Euros would actually tax me as a "Flare all the things" Recon, eh?

    Not sure what you mean, but our surv recs do flare all the time except maybe during post ere1 holdout and domes, where flares are less useful.

    Before I realized how boring it was, after the first remake thanks to a hugger troll, I bought an Arc Reactor just to keep the flares flowing.

    It's a NA thing Ghost. SurvCons are "NoobCons" as several good players have told me. Only good for Supply Station and Armor Melting with LD. They don't really understand or appreciate having Flares on the team. So even if I am flaring for them, they don't bother using it to it's full potential necessarily. Sometimes they do, but most of the time, nope.

    Agreed, flaring is massively unappreciated. Flares allows 3 things IMO

    1) Faster Scouting. This should be obvious, but lvl 3 flare covers a HUGE area, a flaring recon can see everything around him in very little time, including things in sight blocked nooks and crannies.

    2) Range of weapons. Tons of weapons have longer ranges then an average player sight range. With flare, every weapon from Gauss rifle and above gets used to maximum potential, especially Barret and Stinger.

    3) Information. Theres a reason most good SMM never die in any game. Cloak helps, speedhack helps, but really... Having no sight block is far far far more useful, I can NEVER get jumped by anything behind a sight block, around a corner, other side of a bridge. If you can see anything long before it sees you, it's dead.

    Not to mention seeing the infestor in your HBS, flaring and LDing it for the kill even if its inside somewhere.
    And to ensure people can fire at infestor eggs early when they are placed out of sight.

    Ghost, there are a ton of replays of our verison on this forum, and there is even one on YouTube.

    Please don't speak for all of us. The noobs are the ones that think flare is useless. Flare not only has a ton of uses, but is also fun to use. The thing I hate most is when I see SS recons getting lvl 3 LD instead of lvl 3 Flare, and then proceeding to never use it, its like all they want to do is sit around doing nothing. SS recon is an active job the entire game, and the good ones should almost never have more than 100 mana with them.

    I honestly wish Flares cost like 10/15 energy or something, because it's ridiculous how fast they drain your energy :\ Especially before you get HBS so you literally have to flare around every damn corner and up every freaking ledge.

    They used to cost 40.

    Good lord. I suppose I should appreciate it then. :|

    50*

    But this was when Marksman had LD, I mean PAINTING TARGET. It was buffed to 40 shortly after supply station replaced Run Forrest.

    Yep. Of course Painting Target on "Sniper" wasn't as bad as the Rambo-encouraging "Problem Child."

    I do, however, miss seeing Mira Han every time I pick Marksman.

    That was the only downside, the removal of Mira Han.
