The overall NC gun is weak compared to it's counterpoints for vanu/terran, and while the default sniper rifle has the ability to 1shot headshot, it isn't easy to hit with unless the enemy is standing still. Usually a TR gets it, since I never see a vanu that isn't in a Magrider (unless he gets blown up out of it, which case he jumps into a scythe or maybe a high-heel wearing maxsuit) but the upgrade path for all ends up with a 1000cert rifle with about the same stats. The TR have the advantage with the higher RoF (like the minichaingun) in that NC have to aim more carefully to line up a slower shot, which is when the TR will turn around and kill us.. because the high rate of fire means something will hit, and when it does, it will throw our aim all over the place. That is my usual death in an infantry clash, I get the jump on a TR, he turns around and kills me. Not so much Vanu, as I really rarely see them outside of Magriders to clash with. You pretty much hit the spot with the NC zerg, our outfit sees them all the time getting pushed from places that we can usually go in and get back, and it's like they took a few shots and gave up. As far as the crown, on our server it is more of a Terran place, we didn't really go for it til the double xp week, as the Connery TR want it so bad for whatever reason. We would just take it and then a force of liek 30-40 would hold it all day til overnight came and we all log off for the night and the Chineese TR zerg would get it back. We weren't able to get it back today, we didn't really try as our outfit was pretty low pop today because of the holiday. Probably grab it back tomorrow or the next day so we can farm the TRG who think that holding the crown is winning the game lol. After the double xp boost, we will prolly not even bother with it, as we can't see any actual strategical value in holding it (easy to defend, so good for xp, but usually whoever holds it takes so much they are warpgated on the rest of the continent) Kind of disappointing, as the TR and Vanu arguing over the crown means less of a fight everywhere else, and I would personally rather have firefights than to cap bases with an enemy force of less than a dozen, kind of boring.
I have peeked at about 25-30k points per hour with the bolt thrower in the crown and in a couple of the tech labs. You just have to get the distance and timing down. 400+ points per head is nuts. They should think about adding some sort of bullet variation. Once you figure out a couple of the mil dot hold points you can quickly become untouchable if you have any sort of support class around you.

The rest of the NC guns are good too. Probably too good and I expect them to be nerfed

Quick question...

I was in an AA turret last night, dishing out grief to some enemy Libs when I started getting shell by enemy MBTs.

I was able to turn my turret guns on them and they backed off only to come back later with more friends. The Libs got me while I was dealing with the tanks unfortunately...

My question is can AA turrets damage / kill tanks? I figure there should be some damage?

AA Phalanx Turrets only tickle non-aircraft. They do very little damage to tanks, but it's still annoying when someone scratches the paint.

This. Just remember that any time your reticule lights up red, you've done damage.

No idea why tags weren't added to the thread title as it's official, but all fixed now.

Note to people who like playing MAX: If you see an armored sunderer coming down the road, don't stand there and shoot at it. Your damage is minimal and our visibility is high, we have no problem running you down like the greasy little 'possums you are.

Note to anyone who plays any infantry... GTF off the road and you won't get run over. Don't get pissy at me if you ran in front of my tank... That is all lol.

Especially to those engineers. I thank you for fixing my stuff but please DO NOT STAND RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME (or on top of me as some of you seem to like doing).
