If you think that aiming with an smg takes no skill, then please duel the top raiders. Aim is seen as a top skill in every other game, yet not so much in tribes...

It does take skill, I'm just a bit sad that there's so little variety in competition viable weapons. Plus the obnoxious screen cracking takes the fun out of a duel between two good auto users.

Oh man I could bitch for f*****g hours about screen shake.

On topic though, myself and Stulittle are looking at starting a sister team to TEAM TRIANGLE in the coming weeks. This would be a larger, new-blood team recruited from pubs so this might not be for you. Let me know if you're keen, though.

From what I remember of you, you're a good player. Good luck finding a quality team :wink:

The thing with machine guns is leading your shots, lets take the soldiers machine gun, it fires a burst of rounds, if you lead it right across a selected path, that path may intersect with whoever you are aiming at.

With a spinfusor you get one shot to lead ahead of the individual to get a hit which is more challenging and in my opinion more rewarding, you also have a reload time to consider between shots, the soldiers machine gun you just fire again.

The CGs you just keep your finger on the fire button and keep leading till you get hits.

While its not skill - less, they do require less skill.

In other games people don't hover or fly in a linear direction.

No shot with a low rate of fire weapon (for the most part this means explosives, but also the blaster) helps you aim your next shot unless your target is stationary or moving at a constant relative velocity to you (pretty much never happens). The projectiles are slow, the feedback is irrelevant for the next shot. You just have to be good with these weapons up front. If you miss, you are starting again from scratch.

Every bullet with an automatic helps you aim the next bullet. Even the noobiest noob in the noobiverse can start firing, be way off target, and then correct for followup rounds and get some hits. For people who can actually aim, it means you can often expect to land a large percentage of your magazine.
