I been having a few random player games lately and I see more are concentrating on a specific type of squad, so was curious to see if others thought the same. The poll is to see what the community likes doing. You can choose more than one category on this poll. I dont believe in stereotyping to much, for players can change depending on friends or moods.
•Over powered means that you prefer to use a team that takes every advantage to control a game map. Winning is more fun beating weaker teams that either don’t fit map or disadvantage in weaponry or medical help. Find this type of player not much fun to play with.
•Specialist squad is playing toons that fit your style, or a map type. It also can be for specialty games with friends like all Melee weapons , all shotguns. Worry about using them all the time, find boring playing same squads. Also limits your knowledge to use all available toons or weapons.
•Sniper Medical combos are dominant class types for some player having range and absorb damage. If you have Gus squirting helps in movement as well.
•Mixture is having a broad range of classes or types (light, mediums, heavies) Usually dosnt stick with same combo but adjust them.
•Toys! yep extra stuff to out number opposition, mines, C4,UAV, Rocket, MG turrets, Portable shield.
•Pot luck, click random to all your toon collection and what ever weapon they are carrying at time. Try this with random map and player and you really can challenge your self.
•Clones. Yep exploit there advantages, Daves grenade Battery, Megans mines everywhere, Madelines UAV etc
•Collection. This more reflects the limited choice new players have over veterans, they dont have luxury of choice, so pick a team they have all the time till they can afford to upgrade.
•Heavies or lights? Some players like the quickness, or the absorbing Heavies. I dont think I ever played a player with only mediums in there team
Im a type of player who enjoys trying out different squads each game. I used to field a type of mix squad when I only had limited collection of toons to choose from and kept at it all the time, now I just choose what I feel.
Something about me:
I do not use Clones
I usually have a rule of thumb about having more commandoes and engineers than medic and snipers, eg 5 toon max of 2 or 6 toon squad max 3 sniper/medic.
I dont have Juans or Fryers probably never will till I feel they are balanced enough to use.
Love Melee battles, but will only do if player agrees as well.
