  • On Char Stealing

    There seems to be a sudden outbreak of char stealing, which is when you have been using someone, leveling them up, etc, and then some n00b comes in and takes them. This happened to me so much recently, it just isn't funny. My idea is that when you finish a mission, you can reserve your char, so that nobody else can take it unless you let them. E.G
    I have
    I level crash up after, let us say, Research
    I then reserve
    None can take Crash away from me unless I am kicked, or I give him away, i other words, I start the mission with him selected.
    Any critisms or ideas for this?
    You spoony bard!

      This *is* a reccuring problem.. however VKing them doesnt always work... someone should write a guide to ettiquite or something cause people seem to think that is just whoever is available (and though this kind of behavior isnt entirely unexpected from neophytes it still inst cool)

        yea but you see..theres always the immature kiddy who thinks ettique doesnt apply to any social situation, much less the internet. i like your idea Sigma, very snazzy And while I use the VK method pep i have to agree with John where as the other players who DON'T have their char stolen (newbs ) go wuts the big deal? psh just play...that is until their char is stolen....

        But back to topic...i agree with your idea Sigma, something liek taht should definetly be implemented

        Wait a sec...I thought you said Crash always died O.o....I'm not dead yet

          It will not be a problem when your stats are stalled in your comp instead of the server.

          For me, I can take any char in EASY and NORMAL, lvl up or not, as long as the others in the server are not j/ks or tking machines, and it is not Uplink and Observation. For HARD, I have to take either explosive or autogunner in order to be not ruining other ppl's day(s).

          But in doing all that mr. nice guy thing, I am a victim of tk in most of the games...

            As Disheartning as this is, its not a feture of the game. Characters are allocated on a first come first served Basis. Therefore if somone elses nabs the amazingly sexy faith TOUGH!

            I just use another character when this happens.

            Then I proceed to kill said player and claim i can only play any good as that character.

            But yeah, it should be in the game. Of give any amount of players the option of a class rather than a character.

              I enjoy vindicating myself by fragging the char stealer as soon as the mission starts.

              To be frank, I do it myself; but only on missions where the same mission critical characters mess up and/or die. After 5+ tries with the same results, I tend to get antsy.

                    hmm...i do agree with this but i also agree with the whole extra stats for newbies. it would seem like it would have to be a server mod tho, something that woudl check total logged time and whether you finished campaigns on different difficulties or not and if you are considered a newb then you start with extra health and REALLY LOW acc/special (cuz then they cant ff as well but take lots of dmg so they dont die so fast)

                      On easy or normal I do this. Often after stealing your character they TK people and die, while you with your 1 star character are the only person to survive. Then the n00b leader clicks continue. Then you laugh.

                          Or have your own server and kick anyone you deem unworthy. I hear there's a server up for grabs in the Leet Maps: The Amazing Ao-Box Contest (with prizes) thread. What are you waiting for?
