>What the fuck is this shit?
Dirty Bomb's a free to play FPS and successor to games like Enemy Territory or Brink
>Is it p2w?
No. The merc unlock system is relatively merciful and as long as you're not a compulsive gambler, you can amass credits pretty quick.
There are also loadout cards with different rarity, but those aren't going to make you less shit at the game, and everything above bronze is purely cosmetic
You can easily craft them by trading up the dozens of crap lead cards you get

I need an engineer. Turtles not coming out anytime soon, and I'm having a hard time deciding between the three available. They're just all so damn good.
I wanna go with proxy because she's just ridiculously fast and can rush EV's and objectives like no tomorrow.
but I've been playing fletcher, and while his grenades don't seem to do a lot of damage, because maybe i'm just not using them right.
but he's pretty underwhelming, but I haven't bothered getting a non default card for him.
Bushwacker on the other hand plays completely differently, and I can't shake the feeling that his turrets really weak and is taken out easily.
but his primary kek10 is what I'm used to on my pheonix, but I kind of don't want a second character using the same primary on my loadout. it feels redundant.
but bushwackers kind of the coolest guy around. I like the way he looks and sounds.
She's a sanic, relies on speed and small hitbox, great for attacking by flanking and throwing mine into a crowd, or defence by placing mines in unpredictable spots. She's really squishy though compared to the guy engis. Has 2 shotties and a good SMG.
Current meta, his stickies do 100 damage if they get stuck on the enemy, so you can oneshot anything from Phoenix and Vassilli to the squishy girls. 2 shotties and Blishlok, which has a slow fire rate, but is very accurate and damaging, therefore deadly in good hands. Lock-on perk is very helpful, since you rely on spamming stickies a lot. He's also a little bit faster than other mercs in his health tier. Good for both offence/defence.
SMG user, decent on offence thanks to kek, but best on defence. Put your turret in unpredictable spots, or create crossfires with it. A properly placed turret acts like another merc on your team. Lock-on is important. When attacking turret is also god for protecting a planted C4.
>that one highlevel tryhard asshole on the other team obviously giving all he's got but his shitter teammates are letting him down
>right when about to lose the game he quits and doesn't get his XP
this game is so full of babies lmfao
How many hours i need to dump each day before the event ends?
>implying her mechanics are balanced
>You still get XP if you leave
Found the misinformed shitter.
>tfw had that loadout but crafted it away
...just today I got this and a silver Urban KE12 Proxy from regular cases. I'm known for being stupidly lucky with this shit though.
some weren't so good, but hey, this card was made to run around
>Level 40 Fragger pub main starts whining about Phantom
Friendly reminder to type setclantag /dbg/ in console~ :3
Could someone tell me what is so great about redeye?
Does the smoke actually fuck with people?
Can his thermal see through walls?
Is it just because he looks cool, and his weapons look cool?
5 sec active tracking unlike vassili's short pulses from sensor, smoke to cover your teammate's ass as well as to hide in while you pop everyone else's heads off with high damage headshot weapons like grandeur and pdp
Smoke works as area denial and cover, also can be used to completely ruin vision in specific places forcing the enemy team to either push into it or go around wasting time
His spotting is quite nice and it lasts pretty long, PDP is very strong
Hes basically a more aggressive vaseline
Do people just know not to run through smoke or theyll die?
I was looking to get a merc who can get rid of enemy nests or help my team get rid of enemy nests, but I needed them to be able to work indoors and outdoors so I couldnt rely on airstrikes, artillery, lasers.
I was looking to get either grenada, stoker, and was looking into red eye to see if smoke would just scare people away, but I'm really bad at sniping...
stoker is the best team oriented merc that can clear nests
nader is good for pure offense
redeye is when you want to do lots of cool shit and feel like big boss
Have I reclaimed the honor of the /dbg/stack?

Nope, fuck right off poser
gimme your phantom cards too you wont be needing them
Bruh i could beat you with all defaults. Dont even kid yourself.
>Sparks, Fletcher, Fragger defaults
Didn't really want to make a topic in /v/, and don't know where else to put this, but are there any other actually GOOD free FPS games?
I've been playing Dirty Bomb, TF2, and AA: Proving Grounds. What about all the other free ones available, how do they stack up?
>Ghost Recon Phantoms
>but are there any other actually GOOD free FPS games?
In this sentence, the "other" implies that Dirty Bomb is a GOOD FPS game. As someone who is currently playing it, I was asking for suggestions on other games.
If you would like to suggest other games that have a bigger playerbase, then by all means do so.
>tfw topping my pub matches as sawbonez
>don't even do that well kill wise just get tons of support exp from heals and revives
Any advice out there for an aspiring medic main? I tend to underestimate my matchups a lot of times and have a hard time landing large health packs directly.
It's as if nobody actually wants the heals.
>Pubs yelling over mic for medic
>Tfw right behind chasing them and miss all 3 bags.
I had to set that shit to right click to make it easier.
Also do any of the other mercs complement medics? So I can fill out my squad.
Try pressing 4 to select the packs then clicking to throw them, maybe you can hit more pubbies that way. Also, tips for being a medic: fight first then heal/revive either after the fight is over or if you catch a break from it, remember your guns are just as good as anyone else's so you should be getting kills too, though it's OK if you don't get all that many but try to at least break 10, maybe 15 kills per half in longer stopwatch games (getting a lot of assists is fine too). But don't stray out from your team too much either, find the sweet spot so you're not too pockety but not full Rambo combat medic either. Always charge defibs when you can. If your team has a good killer you might want to pocket him instead of running around helping the whole team that's roaming around the map.
I have this exact one, same camo too. I didn't really like it at first since i'm not into smoking weed or anything really but it's one of the rare loadouts that i have that earned me compliments, I guess it does look a bit goofy on rhino.
>Any advice out there for an aspiring medic main? I tend to underestimate my matchups a lot of times and have a hard time landing large health packs directly.
You're a 120HP class with mostly reliable guns in the Crotzni and SMG-9, so you can go 1v1 with anyone in a pinch. Just remember that you're a medic so you have an excuse to wait for a buddy instead of charging ahead.
Prioritize yourself for healing over teammates, you can't revive anyone while dead. Throw packs at people but don't sweat it if you miss, if they're good players they will probably notice and pick it up anyways, and if they're bad players it probably wouldn't have mattered.
>one has 2 more pocket nukes, dual primaries and 40 more speed units
That said Aussies at least are having fun
Is this a accurate representation of the game in its current form?
That's ok, I didn't want to try anyway.
It's the ranked thingy dude.
RIP, can't find a match.
I've been randomly disconnecting from games, anyone else have this issue?
It also stopped me from getting my lantern trinket from the event, since it never dropped for me.
So this just dropped, is it any good? Never played Bushwhacker before.
You may think that loadout is bad. But look at this shit right here.
It has quick draw just like yours which I actually like.
Cool, just like you that is 100% useless
Lastly you have tryhard while kira card has extra supplies.
I would gladly take tryhard in this case cause it has a chance of being useful at some point, unlike extra supplies.
GOD why do they keep putting extra supplies on kira, just replace it with something else for the love of god!
You misunderstand. I DON'T think it's bad. *Other* people do, and according to the meta it's one of his worst cards, but I myself love it and have used it exclusively for six months.
Also, frankly I love Try Hard. Half the time I don't notice it because I'm getting kills, but if I have a misstep, that extra HP comes in really handy. I've found Cool equally as useful, especially on Chapel defense.
I still use my swiss red one with quick switch over this.
>taking Quickdraw over Drilled
That is entirely your prerogative, but I would like an explanation of your logic.
I have no idea how that ended up like that.
>also I have all swiss loadouts because the red ones go faster
I can respekt any git who finks like dat.
explody would be a fiiiiine perk to have on kira
Assuming they actually FIX the perk that has been broken for months. Cucks from this threat still recommend people loadout cards with it, because it's reddit approved loadouts that are months old.
It has one good perks and 2 situational ones. It's not bad, it's just not the best. So you can still use it
it's a gameplay choice. If you push in aggressively, switching to your secondary, knife, satalite, fast is more useful than reloading faster.
If you sit back and don't get into big streaks drilled is fine.
To put it simply, being faster in combat is more useful to me than being faster out of combat.
/dbg/ do you go out of your way to votekick all vasilis off your team?
In theory, if you have another 3 players willing to afk, you can join ebin server with high ping no one goes to and just AHK your jumps. 30 mins per match, new map is chosen automatically, to spawn you need to press jump and even then it is still automated.

I do the same thing but I'm not used to other people with me. Like if I die/fuck up I don't mind taking the fall but I feel like shit if someone else is with me and I forget to slow down because they are trying to help

There's a solution for that though.
>using the BR is now hacking
to be honest its so easy to use this gun I agree its kinda like cheating
burst rifles have no reason to be as strong as they are
>>using the BR is now hacking
>burst rifles have no reason to be as strong as they are
It used to be that if you had good timing you could get a good damage output.
If you failed your dps would be lowered by quite a bit because of the missed burst.
Then fagaleth cryed about muh exploits killing his sparks in 2-3 bursts.
So they made it more easy to use for everybody by lowering the skill cap.
They are pretty much just superior versions of full auto weapons now honestly
Nobody burst fires with them you just spam mouse 1 and watch people melt, its disgusting
There is a difference between burst and full auto though.
The same way there is a difference between blishlock and traditional smgs.
But the difference is not something you will experience unless you are playing at the highend vs other competitive players.

>Engineers are ramboing wherever, slayer mercs are trying to defuse and medics have absolutely no idea their teammates are even down around them
Why does this type of game attract players that are oblivious as to what their role is in the game?
Wildstar is F2P too, but it still has people who know what they're supposed to do.
Okay, I need somebody to post this on the forums.
Probably in the general.
Title could be something like "A Look at Dirty Bombs Optimization".
I just need you to pass on this picture.
Also if anybody want's to proof read it or give last minute suggestions be my guest.
Maybe because Wildstar is catered purely to the older MMO players that like shit like heavy grinding and RNG before taking on massive party raids. I guess a lot of casuals dropped W* and went to other MMOs where they can't play their role properly. In DB everyone can do everything that is a necessity, so people don't feel the need to fall into rigid roles.
100 € I think... It was not planned. Now I have every merc and at least a good loadout for every one, cobalt or special loadouts for the 5 mercs I play the most (I also have three Arty cobalt, BR you want ammo, BR I kill you and Dreiss...)
the big issue is how finnicky the spotting works with the ir goggs. sometimes its instant, sometimes you have to hover over them, and good luck spotting them if more than half their body is behind cover.
It's honestly not bad, anything works on him as long as you play correctly
bomb squad is amazing and big ears is lovely to have in conjunction with a killallsounds bind
phantom is all about putting yourself into situations where you're behind like 5 preoccupied people so you can light them up, the gun doesn't really matter all that much since all his primaries are strong.
It would flow better if you moved the text on the left side of the screen instead since most people are going to look at the graph and then the text. Also for proof reading aside from changing effect to affect you should phrase it better instead of having a rethorical question followed by another one.
Main menu feels like a slow bad flash game all transition animations are like 10 fps and it takes half-a-second to a second to respond to my clicks.
Is it just so bad and there is nothing I can do, or is it fixable with settings or anything else?
Do we have word on what the next rotation will be?
>Also for proof reading aside from changing effect to affect you should phrase it better instead of having a rethorical question followed by another one.
I was afraid of that and here I was hoping to just get it off my chest and move on....
D-do you really think I should change it?
>damage to head 54
>do you really think I should change it?
If you want to be taken seriously you should. If you don't it'll just seem like your agenda is to tarnish the game's image. Admitedly they've done a good job of doing it on their own.
Also being assertive has the added bonus of making it seem like you actually know what you're talking about.
>2 mercs I have
Guess it's time to buy Stoker.
>If you want to be taken seriously you should.
The devs take anything seriously.
But sure why not. Might as well see this through.
If you could elaborate on what you think I should change, it would help.
>Also being assertive
I have no idea what you mean with that for instance. How exactly do you want that to be displayed?
Aside from everything i've already mentioned, It would help to keep your thoughts more concise or compact for a lack of a better term. If you haven't convinced me by the first paragraph i'm not like to scroll through your giant image to see if you've made some good points further down.
It's cool if you want to have arrows and shit but the text should mostly be in one place telling me what i'm looking at and why i should care.
Quick thanks to all the anons here. I've been running into you guys for the past 2~ weeks playing and you're all pretty good. Keep up the good work!
Blast is for weapons
Explody is for abilities
...according to the perk descriptions. Poor wording, since the launcher is technically an ability.
Makes enough sense, however, given Nader is the only one who uses a weapon to deliver the explosives directly.
>tossing grenades (Thunder, Fragger)
>calling in strikes (Skyhammer, Arty, Kira)
>shooting grenades (Nader)
One's for abilities, the other is for "weapons". Bigger Blast is only for Nader's grenade launcher because it's technically a weapon instead of an ability because it fires "shells". On the other hand, Explodydendron is keyed to Skyhammer's airstrike, Arty's arty and Fragger's grenade.
No, I don't no why they made that distinction. Maybe Javelin will use it in the future.
Game is becoming boring tbqh
have a webm
It's definitely an improvement anon, If i had to nitpick anymore i'd only really complain about how you've colour coded it but that's all.
I just hope they come to see your effort.
>I just hope they come to see your effort.
HAH, nah. They never do.
I just do it because my autism fuels me to point out things that are wrong in picture format.
My best hope is that the forumites can use it to rally some whines and cries behind it and maybe make SD life less comfortable.
I haven't played Fletcher at all during this Fletcher rotation but today I had a mission for him, so played him a bit. Holy fuck is he easy to play, just jump around like a nigger and throw stickies in enemy's general direction and you win every duel.
not this shit again...
Probably general, the more forumites see it and whine about it the better.
Well fuck me. I don't know shit about shit about forums. I figured there was just the one because a) that's all I ever seen caps from here and b) that makes fucking sense.
What are the other ones? I'll post it there.
I just started playing at the end of December, never even looked into the game all that much before hand, went in completely blind and I'm still playing.
Putting a Sticky bomb character is this game was fucking retarded, I understand the idea is to create traps around bottlenecks and cut off obvious travel routes. Yet SD had to have known that no one would ever use them for that. Just look at the TF2 Demo, the stickies are the primary form of offense and its just about shitting them out all over the place.
Fragger gets one grenade on a pretty long cooldown and Fletcher gets fifty fucking billion bombs to chain detonate.
tl;dr niggers. Sparks is best girl.
You're entitled to your opinion, even if it is

As someone who has actually played the first tomb raiders when they came out I disagree.
>first game mode of the day = 1500 credits total
>first win 500
>one set of missions 1500-3000 credits
So that's minimum 4500 daily, throw in few extra sets of missions and it's 10k easily.

I think I just made someone rage quit the game.
