    They are gonna say that it's totally cool that you gave up almost all mid to long range capability in order to beat a "weapon" that is built into almost every gun and has no reload time or ammo consumption.

    Picking the shotgun should be a death sentence in an open field against literally every other primary. If it's NOT that way, then don't we just have a semi automatic rifle instead of a shotgun?

    Add a minor note to remove any confusions, I'm using the video game tropes of those weapons. I couldn't care less how shotguns work in real life. Players build their weapon expectations from other games' weapons, not real life.

    Well, when I showed it to people, nobody had any idea about it, but who cares really, as long as it gets fixed. I really don't want to relive cs 1.3 or which one was it that the same exploit. I admit, it is funny when you do it sometimes, but when everyone starts doig it, then we might just incorporate a full auto shotgun (the nf one actually looks like it could be).

    Before you go and try, doing it with the scoped rifle doesn't make firing faster.

    This is what I had in mind:

    The model needs a bit adjusting, yes, but I certainly hope you do get the point by now.

    As for the scoped rifle, it doesn't work, becouse the firing cycle is programmed in differently. Candles did say he could change it, but he'd need the permission of trickster. However, the way things have been going latley, I wouldn't be surprised, if the fixes have already been done and are on their way in RC5.

    That montage was for the shotgun, so it naturally features claustrophobic maps.

    Halo has open maps for an infantry-vehicle dynamic roughly close to that of Empires. It's infantry combat is much better than Empires', so small maps are also popular.

    Note that I think the water isn't rendered at that distance. Needless to say, it's hard to fit that entire map in one image. It's landmass is bigger than anything in Empires.

    Halo has tanks and other typical "open world" vehicles:

    You can understand that many of those environments make the shotgun worthless, but no one bitched for slugs because the shotgun was unstoppable death in close quarters. Risk-reward, bitches.

    That being said keep in mind we have big things coming down the pipe for empires soundwise including overhauls on the way some parts of the Audio are done including vehicle and MG sounds.

    Not interested in getting him back.

    I live in Japan, '開発者' = 'Developer'


    Navy

    Yes, like LONGCAT and TACGNOL.

    Yes, and I made a goodbye thread a looooong time ago.



    That's what his job in the navy was, a Nuclear power technician.

    Aircraft Carrier.
