Then there is the player Fenrir, he accused me of cheating because I built VTOLs, when the previous game he had left them on, and been told and shown he left them on. In the lobby to that game, I asked him to keep them on....
Luckily, he was not a quitter, just a trash talker, and kept accusing me of cheating the whole game.
I think saying someone is stupid for not building VTOL, AA or cyborg transports could be considered trash talking, too.
I'm not sure if he meant "hacker cheating" or "breaking the agreed upon rules" cheating.
He meant "breaking the agreed upon rules" cheating, not "cracker cheating".
Its also worth noting he didn't declare "NO VTOLS" in the game title, he didn't tell me no vtols (he did ask why I wanted them kept on though, but did not respond to me reasons), his ally claimed he told everyone in the start, or at least responded no vtols when asked.... but he was asked on team chat, and the response, while public, was simply "OFF"
I wasn't going to ask "what is off" as that would reveal one party was communicating privately, while the other wasnt, and I like to listen in to other team's discussions if possible.
So he didn't communicate well enough, and it wasn't convenient for you to check that there wasn't a miscommunication.
I should have asked with ally chat off, though...
Besides, he had far too many stars, to not know about structure limits, and he had been well informed/reminded about what they were set to, in the previous game when ppl started complaining that he lied and VTOLs were in fact ON, and then I asked him to keep them on.
I don't understand the reason for not setting them in the limits screen.
So he calls me a cheater for using VTOLs, when initially I was sort of teasing him that he left them on again with only several lancer armed vtols to show him they were on, and give him a chance to prepare
All he does is spout off crap about being a cheater and it being a no vtol game.
so I humor him and dont attack with VTOLs, and limit myself to only cyborg transports, and build a howitzer firebase on the left plateau of NTW.
Then I commence fire on his ripple batteries, and he again spouts off about me being a cheater, building in an "unreachable" area, and how he has no way to retaliate/ its impossible to retaliate.
He goes on about how he can't retaliate and its cheating.
Meanwhile I think to myself.. has this guy ever heard of CB?
I tell him its no unreachable, and he can retaliate, but if he's such a noob he doesn't know how, I'm not going to tell him
As he takes ground shaker fire, he continues to build ripples in lines/high density formations, and no CB,
Each ground-shaker would fire a shot, a few ripples would be lost to the ground-shaker shot, the ground-shaker would be destroyed by CB, the trucks building the ground-shakers weren't damaged, rinse and repeat. So CB was useful, but not enough, since CB can't target trucks building ground-shakers next to the base, where the sensors can't do anything at all about it until it fires and does lots of splash.
He knows how to reach the platform, but if not having researched anything VTOL-related, it takes some time to research, and by that time the game was as good as over.
