playing with /v/ is just getting less and less
would you a wisp?
I said it before and I'll say it again, you niggas need to harness the power of dual monitors
Fuck sake, this thread seems dead, but I guess I'll ask here since it is a Risk of Rain thread, and I was gonna make one anyway.
Somebody give me tier list on each of the playable characters from best to worst. If you wanna add why for each of them then feel free to go for it.
Have you seen chef?
>oh shit nigger what are you doing tier
>that's just disrespectful tier
Loader: anyone remotely competent can break loader. Once you have a Wicked Ring, 14 Specs and some syringes the game is over. Until then if you have 4+ goat hooves and any amount of competence you can run back and forth putting down pylons to safely kill everything. Loader is versatile, with powerful melee and range. He becomes literally unstoppable with a fair number of whites and just one red. Far and away the most broken character
Engi: once you have enough hooves to outrun worms and yellow vagrants you can just hide and shoot rockets. Easier than Loader to do well with, but actually requires some amount of competence to ascend beyond the realm of mortals (unlike loader)
Bandit: because of bandit's invincibility ability, he can snag crates early more easily. He can simultaneously shoot fast and do sick high damage extremely well. In this way, he combines the better traits of sniper and huntress without having their crippling weaknesses.
Sniper: crippling weakness: lots of enemies in a tight space. Skill: huge damage on a single target. Get hooves to run away. Get crowbars to kill shit
Huntress: crippling weakness: 9hp, no invincibility. Skill: run away and shoot at the same time
Chef: crippling weakness: slow as fuck, no invincibility. Skill: tons of damage to groups of enemies. Lol at worms. Get hooves asap. get syringes
This would vary wildly depending on what artifacts you like to play with, but here's my list for the usual /v/ setup:
Mercenary, i-frames out the ass, short cooldowns on all skills, good damage
Bandit because if you're smart you can be invisible and invincible all the time, even more ridiculous with the speed bug
Chef because best damage dealer
you're a faggot if you play him all the time, only good excuse is lag
Sniper because he can melt bosses but is vulnerable while charging the shot, only needs a few crowbars to kill anything in one shot but his dodge has a long cooldown
Miner because three of his skills can get you out of trouble and he has good damage but his cooldowns are a bit long
Acrid and Huntress, they're not bad or hard to play but they're not that good either
Han-D because no dodge, slow attacks and his healing isn't that useful but good damage and the drones are good for stunning or finishing enemies. I love playing him anyway but it's not easy
Enforcer because no dodge, his shield will more likely kill you than save you and he's not that good at killing
Acrid: no invincibility skills and his only go fast skill has like 15 seconds of cooldown. He's supposed to be melee but he's shit at it. He can still be good if you stack syringes and hooves, but so can basically any character
Miner: his skills are all really good for a melee character, stun, dash, jump. However, they all take years to cool down. You can easily be stuck with no abilities off cooldown, at which point you will be killed by worms or vagrants or funballs.
XCom: there is literally nothing impressive about this character. He lacks the crippling weaknesses of miner and AIDS doggy, but he also lacks their strengths too. He can run around and spread AIDS everywhere and he can't stack dots. He also doesn't have 3 sick skills. He just does nothing special. He can still do well if you get tons of syringes and, of course, hooves. Roll like sanic with 20 hooves.
Han D: A worse verson of miner, hanD hits slow but strong. However, he has NO invincibility and moves slow as fuck. He can't get out of danger and his drones aren't good enough to make up for the fact that he WILL die if he closes to melee range. How do you make this character good? Hooves, syringes, I dunno. If you get 6 rapid mitosis and a shield generator you can be invincible forever, I guess. But that goes for every character.
Not him but the worst tier is wherever enforcer is. He has no mobility and his only defensive skill locks you in the place you are standing. The disrespectful tier is because those chars are easy to play and a little bit overpowered.
HEY I'M BACK. Join in 5 miutes, since that's when I'll start the game.
step 1: stop taking the following items: Infusion, Ceremonial Dagger (glass mode only), and Guardian's Heart. These items are crutches and you will never be able to git gud unless you man up and stop behaving like a sickly impoverished toddler.
Step 2. Find a character you like to play. Learn how to play them well, which items are good for them, which items to avoid, etc.
Step 3. ????????
Step 4. Play online with /v/ and realize you suck ass.
Lobby now. 5 minutes to join. If you miss the window you have no right to complain about there being no hosts. Know that I am hosting and only your own lack of diligence has prevented you from joining my game.
>not taking infusion
Its literally the best item of the game, if you dont take it when you have it right in front of you then youre just forcing yourself into artificial difficulty.
Okay /v/, I just started playing again after years of not playing. I'll join you fags in 2 days when I'm not shit, then I'll school you on how to play since I'm objectively the best at video games.

let's get some big hosts going
