    I would say instead of walking into the hive and dying you see a pub exo wanding around aimlessly and dying to a solo skulk.

    i dislike experienced people saving for exo when we are obviously losing because them spending their res on something may have prevented us being in such a bad state. But generally newbs just enjoy themselves and do what they like since they contribute little either way.

    but in pub games never research exos before ar 2 and never research exos before jetpacks unless you want 90% of your team as exos

    it's both redundant and in poor taste.

    how's this, how often do you see threads made by players who don't know what they're talking about mocking other players for being marginally worse?

    I just complain at the res-hoarders by passive-aggressively lamenting that they're the reason we're going to lose.

    If a comm invests in something that field units can spend their pres on, then it needs to be utilized to get any kind of benefit out of it. Otherwise, the tres could be better spent on passive upgrades (i.e. weapon+armour) and you'll see a lot greater benefit/cost ratio out of it than you would out of investing in barely utilized purchasables. Res spent on early mines, or shotguns, or jetpacks, or even exos, is just wasted res if the field players don't buy them.

    That said, this thread is dumb and completely unnecessary.

    bonus points for just appropriating shotguns from green corpses. I'll save my sweet sweet pres for a new shotgun jetpacks welder combo. or gl if their upgrades are clamped up.

    You forgot to mention that res horders often pick up your shotgun, refuse to give it back, carry it into the hive and die...

    As we are clearly in trolling territory now and the fun is over, can some mod please close the thread?

    Thanks.

    actually, I have almost never seen that happen, most of the pub players are nice enough to give the SG back, especially when you have a much better KDR than they do.
