Post your protips here (serious ones) Empires has lots of little things that just make life easier or just work better, I'd like to hear some that you guys have figured/found out. 1. Most weapons recoil kicks up and to the right, especially the BEMP, you can use this to hit much more reliably (learned this off trickster the other day) 2. You can use the decal from your RPG/Mortar explosion to hide BE mines. 3. In a melee fight, dont melee until you collide with the other player and stop eachother moving, this makes you way more likely to land a hit since they'll be stopped and the shitty interpolation wont be as bad. 4. bind "mouse3" "emp_menu_quickcmd 6 3" will call down a squad arty when you press mouse3. 5. NF mines on duststorm are close to invisible. 6. Never use SMG2 unless you have a really good reason to. It's DPS is nearly the same as the SMG1 at the expense of accuracy. 7. Drop Armories for your troops as much as possible. 8. To build a barracks with repair upgrade it takes 20 seconds. 9. You only need 3 seismics to kill a turret or an unbuilt wall. 10. Aim for the chest with most weapons, especially the SMG1, the kick will usually put you into headshot territory. 11. Changing class in a barracks/armory will reload all your weapons (unless you're a gren), very handy if you're out of ammo or in a firefight and you need to reload everything ASAP. 12. Holding space while firing a tank cannon will mostly negate recoil and make firing easier. 13. IF you are overheated, don't press any movement keys, you will cool faster.
