    when did we decide on ogi not having the sg anymore
    i wasnt paying attention probably but why did we take out his sg and leave him with just a cb

    Hmm... Not sure if Ability planned it this way,

    Certain members of the Black Ops have expressed concerns that Ogi in recruit was helping the guy who he follows (usually some guy who ends up leaving the team just to get ogi) get too much kills when he's a really selfish person already.

    Not sure if Ability implemented this idea though.

    Ramses II Help, I can't change my title!

    in recruit ogilvy is now a "tip-giver" for newbies rather than a way for people to whore kills and xp.

    Guess he did implement it then.

    Ogi/Ivan should be normal outside of recruit.

    It's in the changelog.
    Ogi no longer has sg in recuit, replaced with informative tips so people in recruit don't get all selfish about him.

    Should be normal outside recruit, like I said.

    Count yourself lucky it had a Crowbar even then?

    Though to be honest Og is a rat bastard and just tears Newbie Mode a new one. Leads to bad teamwork. Contributes little to the experience of the game. Supports the bad habits of bad players. The supposed "role" he is supposed to have, helping Field Aid Medics level isn't really required as long as the Medic actually sticks with her team since she gets that huge bonus on shared kill XP.

    The only real purpose and bonus I see Og give Newbie Mode (Which isn't a terrible idea like letting a Recon go Rogue all game), is making you immune to Troll Huggers out of the Abandoned Mineshaft. And I'm not even going to really say that is good thing. If your team is disorganized and bad enough to fail to the Huggers, you deserve it.

    getting away from the original question, but is ogi supposed to issue tips in non-recruit mode as well? played an alpha and he was saying things like use your knife when zombies get close.

    i know it's minor, but having these newbie tips appear instead of the funny, over-the-top predictions of death is a bit strange.

    Probably not.
    Though I think Ogi could use a few more lines.
    Develops his character and the story line more.

    Now I want to see Og get a "Cows go moo!" line when the zombie cow hex is nearby.

    Why not simply disable ogy totally from ec recruit so no one gets ogy at all.

    This would force everyone to share tips (those with more xp to teach those newbies) and also to force the team to stick together ?

    While many, many threads have come and gone about teaching newbies, I think this is the first time someone has advocated forcing people to teach - we're here to play, not teach. Those that teach are commended for helping out, but eventually we all tire of people ignoring or criticizing us for teaching and stop giving out all but the most basic or necessary tips.

    Actually, considering that the Mineshaft shits about 30 huggers in total, it's kind of a bullshit event and all but the most organized teams usually end up hugged at least for a minute solid while the minis/og/ivan/X-1 shoot the huggers to death.

    All you need is a trapper or mobrec for mine huggers really.

    With Ogi having CB only, it has actually made Mines easier.

    Shotty was more OP; the stun effect could break hugger's channel, and let a person maybe cause some havoc in the ~ 1 second they are un-hugged.

    Stun effect makes them actually hug, too.

    Usually they'd just run for 5 seconds and die within that time.

    Also I'm kind of glad. Every time I picked up Ogi in newb mode out of habit, I kick myself because I remember how annoying he is.
