So I woke up halfway through a sleep cycle to play AoA - work will suck tonight, but AoA! It's probably obvious from my score that I really shouldn't be piloting ships while in this groggy state.
My biggest concern about AoA in its current state is not the combat - it feels great. It's simply the game mode and the current objectives that I take issue with. Who does well in a dogfight has very little to do with who takes the kill home - this is 90% luck for being there when the opportunity arises and 10% skill for aiming well in that time span.
A friend commented that there was a line of vultures following me for almost the entire game. As my target gets low, I'd have two choices: take a moment of precision to make the final kill, or continue evasion and try my best to aim. Well, you can't aim while dead. Got kinda sick of seeing 'kill assist' show up. I don't really have any ideas as to how to address this other than changing my name from Psycho Romeo to something random.
Eventually (after a crash I think) it stopped awarding me kills or assists, at least on my screen. Will take a look at the video later.
I didn't really notice projectile convergence. I didn't think we actually shot two projectiles - just one fat one. Is this incorrect?
It's really fun to stalk people when the bots were out. I really like when the bots come out because that's really the only reprieve I get all game. I got in a few nasty assassinations against dorkhero and FRY.
Probably won't be able to play again - I expect to be working Saturday days again by next month. Have a good one!
